There was no sound now but of Markarfs -stertorous breathing, but presently the measured tramp low came, passed, turn- ed and passed a way. Le- page gave a last tug at the fastenings of his rope, threw the end out of the window, took the mattress and dropped It v e r y c a r e f u 11 y as Straight down as he could. The next moment, in spite ot Sterkoff. some- body had left the palace. Why not? The runaway was aware that the king was not really suffering from influenza. He could spend an evening at Slavna without re- proach! "I wish I knew the safest way to thought Lepage, dangling at the end of his rope. It swayed about ter- ribly.

Nothing, so far as Lepage and the rest of humanity for certainty- fcnew. Of that nothing, actual or possible, Lepage did not approve. He hitched the mattress on to his back, bent himself nearly double and, thus both burdened and protected, made for the river. He must have looked like a turtle scurry- Ing to the sea lest he soould be turned over and'so left for soup in due ssason. "Who goes Halt! The; turtle scurried on. -It was ne moment to stop and discuss matters. The spurt of report! There was a hole in the mattress, but well above Lepage's head. Indeed, if hit at was not most likely-to be hit itt the head. That vital portion of him was tucked away too carefully. He presented a broader aim, but the mat- tress masked him nobly.

The sentry was not He set off at a round pace to the guardroom. He did not even stay to notice the white rope which dangled in the.air from a first floor window. Had he stopped he would have heard Markart's invincible, drug laden snoring.
