Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta SIX FHt LCTHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 OF KRAVONIA FRUIT LANDS ON THE ARROW LAKES By Anthony Hope Author Of "The Prisoner Of Zenda" ue ngure or ttieir commander now Appeared. He rode to the foot of the causeway, then dismounted and .gave horse to the serge-int who attended 'him. His men followed and drew up the road, blocking the approach to castle. Big Mistitch began to end the causeway, a broad smile on It was i great moment for .prain day of revenge olch he had waited in forced pa- 'ttence andPdisctfset unobtrusiveness. It a critical day also in view of the .Instructions he had. To do him jus- tice, he "was not afraid- Sophy'saw and knew. This must have been the news that Zerkovitch ttiat he .had galloped on to itett the prince at Volseni. Some event unknown and untoward turn of loosed Mistitcb on them! IThat-Tras all she had time to realize be- jfbre Mistitch saluted her and spoke. "I have the honor of addressing the 1 Bareness j "Yon know me well, I think. Captain IMIstiteh. and 1 know you."

"You ride "Aitaio the colonel's orders, baron- ess. I confess the precautions seemed to me excessive. I had no doubt you -would willingly obey his majesty's commands. Here; by the way. is-the order." He produced "the order the king bad signed before his death. Sophy had been thinking, Neither her tconrage nor her cunning forsook her. She waved the document away. "I can take your word, captain? You're making no mistake today? I really am Baroness somebody else with whom you have a She laughed at him gayly, and went, "Well, I'm ready. I'm'dressed for a ride, and I'll ride with you immediate- ly. In two minutes we'll be off." She saw a groom in the road staring at the troopers and called'to him to bring her a horse. This prompt obedience by no means suited Jlistitcb's book. It forced bim either to show his hand or to ride off Sophy, leaving the prince to his devices, and. in a little while, to his re- Ideal Conditions For Apples Financial and Social Advantages j Nor.- MisliU'i) the sound.

I "His royal highness is in the }he asked. His voice grew angry now. :He feared the great stroke had failed. He saw that Sophy played with him. How would be and his escort look rid- injj back to Slavna with nothing to show for their journey save the cap- ture of one unresisting wo- man wbom they dared not harm while the prince remained free and might be- come all powerful? "If be had been you'd have known it by now. 1 smiled Sophy. "No. .the prince isn't at the -see that for myselfF' Mistitch cried, taking a step forward. With a low laugh Sophy drew aside, passed him and ran down the way. In an instant she darted between the ranks of Mistttch's men and reached her horse. The groom mounted her. She looked np to Mistitch and called to him gayly: "Now for Slavna. captain! And hur- ry or you'll be left Her wit was too quick for liim. Mai Ton Hollbrandt burst out laughing. Pe- ter Vassip grinned. "What are you waiting for, asked Mas. "Your prisoner's; only too Sttxious to go with you. you "FJ1 search the castle he cried .in a rage, which made him forget his Peter Vassip sprang forward and barred the way. Mistitcb raised his mighty arm. but Sophy's voice rang lent gayly: "Nonsense, Peter! There's nothing to conceal. Let the captain pass." j Her words stopped Mistitch. He j feared a trap. Mai saw it and mocked j him. "Don't be afraid, captain. Take fifty men in with you. The garrison consists of a lady in bed, an old man and five female servants." Sophy heard and laughed. Even the troopers began to laugh now. Mistitch etood'on the top of the causeway, fr- resolute, baffled, furious. But behind his stupidity lay the cun- ning astuteness of Stafnitz. the genious bit of deviltry. Mistitch's name availed where his brain could not. For the moment the prince made" little of the crown which had become his. When he heard Zerkovitch's news his over- powering thought was that the woman he loved might be exposed to the pow- er and tbe insalts of Mistitch. Sophy .was nlaying a skillful game1 for him. but be did not know It "I hear something." said Peter Yas- elp njcain, whispering to Mai von Holl- brandt Yes. there was the galloping oMiorses on the Volseni road! Colonel Stafnitz had not miscalcu- lated. E king bad died yesterday, yet none had told his heir! Mistitch had set out for Dobrava with fifty men to wait for the .kiug. who was dead. The dead king would never go to Dobrava, and no messenger came to the new king at Praslok! Zerkovitch's news was enough to 1 raise" the anger of a king, and Sergius blazed'with it But more potent still j was his wrathful fear, as be thought of j Sophy at Praslok in the power of Cap- tain Hercules. Ho had mounted i men witb him. With these he at once 1 set forth, bidding Lukovitch collect al! i the men he couid and follow him as .speedily as possible. If Mistitch had really' gone to Dobrava. then he would him there and have the truth out but if. as the prince h-.ircly j rioubted. be was making for Praslok :there was time to Intercept mm. time I.to carry off Sophy and the ia- mates of the castle, send them back to safety within the walls of Volseni and j. himself ride on to meet Mistitch with bis mind at ease. Relying on Zerkovitch's information, i-lie assumed that the troopers bad not started from Slavna till 7 in the morn- lug. They had started at 6. He, reck-. 1 oned -also on Zerkovitch's statement that they were but fifty strong. They i were a. hundred. Yet had he known j the truth, be could not have used more j haste, and he would not have waited for another man. He stayed to tell no man in Volseni tbe news about his fa- ther except Lukovitch. But as his twenty rode out of the gate behind 'him he turned his head to Zerkovitch. who trotted beside him, for Zerkovitch neither could -nor would rest till the game was played; and said, "Tell them that the king is dead and tha't 1 reign." I Zerkovitch whispered the txews .to: the" j man nest him, and it ran along.the j line. A low. stem cheer, hardly more i than a murmured assurance of loyalty and service, caiae from the..lips of the men in sheepskins. Mistitch saw coming and turn- i ed to his troop. He had time for a lit1 tie speech, and Stafnitz had taught him j what to say: "Men. you are servants of i the king and of the king; only.- NQt i. even the Prince of Slavna can com- mand yon against the king's orders. ;The king's orders are that we take Baroness Dobrava to Slavna, no "'mat-' ter who resists. If need be, these or- ders stand even against the prince." I' Stafnitz's men he pet-. 1 ted. the men who had felt the prince's i stern only too glad to hear it To strike for the king and yet against the hated was a hrx- ury. a happy and unlocked for hanno- nizing of their duty and their pleasure. Their answering cheer was loud and -j fierce, i It struck harsh on the ears of the ad- vancing prince. His face grew hard and strained as he heard the shouts and saw the soiled body of men across i the path, barring access to his own castle. And within a yard or two of their ranks by the side of the road sat I the figure which be knew so well and i so well loved. i Now Mistitch played his card, that i move in the game which Sophy's cool submission to his demand had for the 'moment thwarted, but to which the prince's headlong, anger and fear now i gave an opening, the opening which I Stafnitz had from the first foreseen. It would need little to make the fiery prince forget prudence when he was face to face with Mistitch. It was not i a safe game for Mistitch both Stafnitz and he knew j Captain Hercules was confident He i would not be caught twice by the Vol- seni trick of sword! The satisfaction of his revenge and the unstinted re- j wards that his colonel offered made it worth bis while to accept the risk and rendered it grateful to his heart j Sophy sat smiling. She would fain have averted the encounter and had I shaped her maneuvers to that end. It was not to be so. it seemed. Now, she did not doubt monseigneur's success, i but she wished that Zerkovftch had I not reached Volseni sc. quickly; that j tbe prince had staved behind his walls i till his plans were ready, and that she was going a prisoner to Slavna to see the long, trusting to .her face, her i tongue, her courage and the star of her own fortune. Never had her buoyant i self confidence run higher. t On the top of the causeway Max von Hollbrandt looked to hi? revolver, Pe- i ter Vassip loosened .his knife la its I leather sheath. A window above the gate opened, and Marie Zerkovitch's frightened face looked out The wo- men servants jostled old Vassip in the i doorway. The grooms stood outside j the stables. No one moved. Only the i prince's little troop came on. When they were fifty yards away Mistitch I cried To his men. "Draw and j himself pricked bis horse with his spur and rode up to where Sophy was. Mistitch drew his horse up parallel to Sophy's, head to tail, on her right aide, between her and the approaching force. With tbe instinct of hatred she shrank away from him. It had all been foreseen and rehearsed in Stafnitz's, mind. Mistitch cried loudly, "In the king's name. Baroness He leaned from the saddle and caught her .right wrist In his huge hand.
