Come, we'll go up on the wall." They mounted on to the city wall just by the gate and- leaned against the moldering parapets. Below lay Lake Talti moonlight, and beyond it the masses of the mountains. Yet -while Sophy talked eyes sel- dom left her once or twice he caught himself not listening, but only looking, tracing how she had grown, from Sophy Grouch In her scul- lery to this. He had never forgotten the strange girl.. Once or twice he and Basil had talked of her.: He had re- sented Lady Meg's brusque and un- ceremonious dismissal of her protege. In his memory, half overgrown, had Iain the mark on Sophy's cheek. Now here s.ne was, in Kravouia, of all places Dobrava, of all people! And what else, who knew? The train of events whici had brought this about was strange, yet his greater wonder was for the woman herself. "And here -we ended, with a woful smile. "If mbnseigneur lives I tiink we shall -win. For the moment we can do no more than hold Volsent I think we can do that. But presently, when he's better and can lead us, we shall attack Down in Slavna they won't like being ruled by the countess and. Stenovics as they expect, Little by little we shall grow stronger."

Such was her mood. Plainly she took no puiiiS to it irons bury. The next moment she turned to him, with a smile. "You think 1 talk strangely, saying, ''tVe'll do this and Yes, you must, and it's sudden- ly -.become strange to me to say. say it to you. because you've brought back the old things to my mind, and this is so blit of the old Grouch and Julia Robins .and But until you came it didn't seem strange. Ev- erything that has happened since I came to this country seemed to leap up to it-to bring it about naturally and ir- resistibly. 1- forgot till just now how funny it must sound to how bad, 'I'suppose. Well, you mnst accustom yourself to Kravonia. If s not Essex, you know." "If the king he asked. "1 shall be with monseigneur if he she answered. Yes, it was-'strange. Yet already, even he had known her again for half an hour, had seen her and talked to and in- sidiously it began to seem less strange, less fantastic, more: natural. Dunstan- bury had to give himself a mental shake to get back to Essex and to So- phy Grouch. Volseni set old and gray amid the hills, the king struggled with'his blood for u'fe, the beautiful woman would be with the king if arid so long as he these were the present realities he saw in vivid immediate vision. They made the shadows of the past seem hot in- deed kept all their distinct- ness of outline in in their turn fantastic and in no relation to the actual. Was that the air of Kravonia working on him or was it a woman's voice, the pallid pride of a woman's face? "In Slavna they call me a she said, "and tell terrible tales about thla little red here in Volseni tbey like and. I can win over Slavna, too, if I get the op- portunity. Ho, I shan't be a weakness to monselgneur If be lives." "You'll "His she interrupted. "Yes." She smiled almost laughefl. "That seems worst of than anything N Dunstanbury allowed himself to smile too. "Well, yes, of course that's he said. "Out of Kravonia anyhow. Whaf s true In Kravonia I really don't know yet" "I suppose it's true In Kraronia, too, but what I tell you Is wiU about me." He looked hard at her. "You lore he asked. "As my life, and said Sophy simply. At last Dunstanbury ceased to look at her. He laid his elbows on the bat- tlements and stood- there.1 his eyes roaming over the lake in the valley to the mountains beyond, Sopby left his side and began to walk slowly up and down the rugged, uneven, overgrown surface of the-walls. The moon was sinking in the sky. There would be three or four .dark hours before dawn. A man galloped up to the gate and gave a countersign in return to a. challenge; the heavy gates rolled open: he another rode out and cantered off along the road to- ward Praslok. There was watch and ward. Volseni was hot to be caught napping as Praslok had been. Wheth- er the king lived or died, his Yolsenians were on guard. Duristanbury turned his back on the hills and came up to Sophy. "We Essex folk ought to stand by one he said.- "It's the merest chance that has brought me here, but I'm glad of the chance now, and it's be- ginning to feel not the least strange. So long as you've need of help count me among your soldiers." "But you oughtn't to mil yourself "Did you act on that principle when rou came to With a smile Sophy gave him her hand. "So be it. I accept your service monseigneur." "I give It to you." he persisted. "Yes, and all that is mine I give to monseigneur." said Sophy. Any man who meets or after an in- terval of time again meets an attractive woman only to find that her thoughts are pre-empted and totally preoccupied suffers an annoyance not the less real because he sees the absurdity of it. It is to find shut gate which with better luck might have been .open. The un- usual circumstances of his new en- counter with Sophy did not save Dun- stanbury from this common form of chagrin. The tragic element in her situation gave it a rather uncommon flavor. He would fain have appeared r4s the knight errant to rescue such beauty in such distress, but the nature of the distress did not seem favorable to the proper romantic sequel. He made his offer of service to her. She assigned him to, the service of mon- seigneur! He laughed at his own an- noyance and determined to serve mon- seigneur as well as he could. At the same time, while conceding most amply even ex- cuse, he could not admire bis policy in the choice of a bride. That was doubt- less a sample of how things were 'done In KrtTonia, He lived to feel the ex- cuse more strongly and to pronounce the judgment with greater hesitation. Sophy had given him her hand again as she accepted his offer In monseign- eur's name. He had not yet released It when she was called from the street below In a woman's Tolce full of haste and alarm. "Mtrie Zcrkovltch calls me! I must fo at she "I expect mon- is awake." She hurried off, (To Be Continued.) kl SHOE POLISH Stays Shincd. Dust won't dull it Rain won't spot it.
