Stenovics waved his hands in a com- miserating way. men mustn't spend time in' lamenting the be gaid. "Nor in mere conversation, however pleasant" Stafnitz broke in, with a laugh. "Captain Markart, march your prisoner to his. quarters." His smile made the order a mockery. MarUart felt it and a hatred of the man rose in him. But be could do" nothing. He did not lead Lepage; to his quarters, but followed sheepishly m his prisoner's wake. They went to- gether into tbe little room where Le- page slept "Close quarters, too, said the valet "There Is .but one chair. Let me put it at your service." He himself sat down on the bed. took out his to- bacco and began to roll himself a ciga- rette. Markart shut the door and then, threw himself on the.solitary chair In a heavy despondency of spirit and a confused conflict of feelings. He was glad to be out of the work, yet he resented the manner in which he was put inside. There were things going on In which It was well to have no hand. Yet wis there not a -thing going on in which 6T- ery man ought to ,bave a band on one side or the other? Not to do it but to be ready to accept it when done! He was enough of .a soldier to feel that there lay the worst the meanest thing of all. Not to dare to do it but to profit by the doing! StenorlcB had used the words to Lepage, his prisoner. By making him in effect ft prisoner. too. the general showed that be ap- plied them to the captain also. Any- thing seemed better than it would be better to ride to be- hind Captain Hercules!

Waddington, Office: 410 Round street. Auctioneer. TO say the truth, the word "mur- derers" seemed to Captain Markart more than a little i harsh. To use it was to apply to Kraronian affairs the starner stand- ards of more steady going, squeamish countries. A coup d'etat may well in- volve fighting. Fighting naturally In- cludes killing. But are the promoters of the coup therefore murderers? Mur- derers with a difference, anyhow, ac- cording to Kravoriian ideas, which Captain Markart; -was inclined to share. Moreover, a coup d'etat is war. The suppression of information is legitimate in war. If the Prince of Slavna conld not find out for himself what had hap- pened in the palace, were his opponents bound to tell him? In fact given that an attempt to change the succession in your own interest was not a crime, bat a legitimate political enterprise, .the rest followed. -Except Mistitch: It was difficult to swallow.Mistitch, There was a mix- ture of ingenuity and brutality about that move which not even Kravonian notions could easily accept If Staf- nitz had if he himself had been Markart's con- science would not have rebelled. But to send Captain was cogging the dice! Yet he was very angry that Stenovics should have di- vined his feelings and shut him up. The general distrusted his courage as well as his conscience. There lay the deepest hurt to Markart's vanity. It was all the deeper because in his heart he had to own that Stenovics read him right Not only the brazen conscience was lacking, but also the iron nerve. Getting no answer to bis unpleasant- ly pointed question. Lepage relapsed into silence. He stood by the window, looking out ou the lawn which sloped down to the Krath. Beyond the river the lights of Slavna glowed in the darkening sky. Things would be hap- pening in Slavna soon- Lepage might well look at the city thoughtfully. As a fact however, his mind was occupied with one problem was Zer- kovitch and how could he get at him? For Lepage did not waver. He had taken his line. Presently, however, his professional Instincts seemed to reassert them- selves. He opened a cupboard in the room and brought out a clean pair of sheets, which he proceeded'to arrange on the bed. Busy at his task, be paus- ed to smile at Mnrkart and say: "We must do the best we can. captain. Aft- er all, we have both camped. I expect! Here's the bed for do.fine- ly." He went back to the cupboard and lugged out a mattress. "And this is for shakedown on the floor which I use when I sleep in the king's did use. 1 should say. In my judgment captain, it's comfortable to go to bed ou the floor. At least one can't fall." It was S o'clock. They heard the outer door of the suit of rooms open and shut A man was moving about In the next room. If they could judge by the sound of his steps he also paid Dr. Natcheff a brief visit. They heard the clink of dishes and of glass. said Lepage. "Ah. that's not unwelcome! Have I Markart nodded, and he opened the door. On the table in the sitting room was a savory dish, bread and two bot- tles of wine. Captain Sterkoff was lust surveying the board he bad spread, -Ji his head on one side. There was sufficient urbanity. Then he broke into 41 laugh. "They must think It odd to see you ct frying dishes and bottles about-the palace, "Possibly." agreed Sterkoff. "But you see, my friend, what they think in the palace doesn't matter rery much, BO long as none of them can get out- tide." i-i "Oh. they none of. them spend evening "Would they wish to when, the king has an attack of Influenza and Dr. Nat- cheff is in attendance? It woniS ue-iiu- feeling, "Horribly, captain! Probably eren the sentries would f "It's possible they would." Sterkoff agreed again. He drew himnelf up and saluted Markart who did not mote or pay any attention, "Good night Le- page." He turned to the door. His head seemed more cocked on one aide than ever. Lepage bade him' "Good night" very respectfully, but as the turned in the door he murmured long- ingly. "Ah. if I could knock that ugly mug the rest of the way off his shoul- ders r' He treated Jdarkart with no lew re- spect than he had" accorded to Ster- koff. He would not hear of rifting down at table with an officer, but in- sisted on handing the dish and uncork- ing the wine. Markart accepted at- tentions and began to eat languidly, with utter want of appetite. "Some wine, captain. Some wine to cheer you up in this tiresome duty of guarding cried Lepage, picking up a bottle In one hand and a glasc to the other. "Oh. but that wry necked fellow has brought you.a dirty glass! A moment captain! I'll wash And off he even waiting to set down the the little room beyond. His brain was working hard now, marshaling his resources against oil" difficulties. The difficulties were-thirty. feet to fall, SterkofTs sentries, the broad, swift current of the even in normal times there was always a sentry on the the search for Zerkovitch in Slavna. His re- sources were a mattress, a spare pair of sheets and a vial half full of the draftjtfhich Dr. Natcheff had scribed for the king. s very unfortunate, but I've not the least" notion how much kill thought Le- page, as he poured the a strong wln eglass and filled up with wine from the bot- tie Sterkoff had provided. Hs came back, holding the glass a} satisfied air, "Now if s fit for a. gentle- man to drink out said he; as he set- it down by hand; The cap- tain took it up and swallowed it at a draft "Ugh! Corked. I think! Beastly. said he. Captain Markart thought he would smoke his cigar in the little room, lying on the bed. He was tired and sleepy- very sleepy, there was no denying It Lepage sat down and ate and drank. He found no fault with the wine in the bottle. Then he went-out. and looked at Markart The captain lay in his shirt, breeches and boots. He was sound asleep and breathing heavily. His cigar had fallen on the sheet but apparently had been out before it fell. Lepage regarded him with pursed lips, shrugged his shoulders and slipped the captain's revolver into his pocket The captain's recovery must be left to fate. For the next hour he worked at his pair of sheets, slicing, twisting and splicing. In the end lie found himself possessed of a fairly stout rope twelve or thirteen feet long, but he .couid find nothing solid to tie it to near the win- dow except the bed, and that was a yard away. He would still have a fall of twenty feet and the ground was hard with a spring frost There would be need of the mattress. He put out all the lights in the-room and cautious- ly raised the window. The night was dark. He could not see the ground. He stood there ten minutes. Then he beard a measured tramp. A dark figure, just distinguish- able, came around the corner of the palace, walked past the window to the end of the buDding, turned, walked back and disappeared. Hurriedly Le- page struck a match and took the time. Again he waited; again the figure came. Again he struck a light and took the time. He went through this process five .times before he felt reasonably sure that he could rely on having.ten minutes to hlmsetf If he started the moment SterkofTs sentry had gone r. round the corner of the building.
