THOUGH.not remote in distance, yet Volseni was apart an-1 iso- lated from all that was hap- pening.

They did not know that the thieves were quarreling about the plunder nor that the diplomatists had taken cold. They knew only that young Alexis reigned In Slavna by reason of their king's, murder and against the will of him who was dead; only that they had chosen Sophia for their queen because she had been the dead king's wife and his chosen successor All the men -who could be spared from labor came; Into the city. They collected what few horses they could. They filled their little fortress with provisions. They could not go to Slav- na, but they awaited with confidence the day when Slavna should dare to move against them into the hills. Slav- na had never been able to beat" them in their owrr hills yet' The bolder "spir- its even implored Lukovltch to lead them down fci a raid on the plains. would sanction no more than.a scouting party to see whether any -movement was in progress from the other side. Peter Vassip rode down with his men to within -i few miles Of Slavna. For result of the expedition he brought back the news of the guns. The great guns, rumor said, had reached Sravonia be in Slavna. :In a week. The rank hardly understood that meant Anger that their destined and darling guns should fall into hostile hands was the feeling up-, permost But the tidings strpr-k their leaders "home to the heart Lukovitch knew what it meant Dunstai? bury, who had served three., yesrs in the army at home, knew very welL Cov- ered by suoh a force as Stafnitz conld bring up; the guns could pound Volsecl to pieces, nnd Volseni conld strike back not n single blow.

Since Dunstanbury had offered- bis services to Sophy he had assumed a leading part His military training1 and his knowledge; of the world gave him an.influence over the rude, simple men. Ljnkovitch looked to hiro for guidance. He had much to preparations Jfor defense. But now he declared, defense to be impossible. "Who'll tell her asked Basil Wil- liamson.'- "We must get her across the fron- said Dunstinbury. St; Peter's we came, Basil. It's an ensy journey, and I don't suppose they'll try to intercept us.

"With the guns against us it.would be a mere If it, let It be as you say, my. lord." His' heart was .very heavy. After generations of defiance .Volseni must Slavna and his dead lord's will go for nothing. All this was the doing of the great guns. Dunstanbury's argument was sound, but he argued ffom Ms-heart as well as his head. He was convinced that the best service he could render to Sophy was to get her safely out of the country. His heart urged that her safety was the one'and only thing to consider. As she went to and fro among them now, pale and silent, yet always accessible, always ready to lis- ten, to consider and to answer, she moved him with an infinite pity and a growing attraction. life was as though dead.or frozen. It seemed to him as though all Kravonia most be to her the tomb of him whose grave In the little hjilside church "of Volseni she visited so often.

Then the spell of this frozen grief might broken; then should her drooping revive' and bloom and who ruled nyc, his bearl even the fate of the gallant little city which-harbored them and whose' nothing to him-beside "Sophy. On ber his Sophy's own mind in these days can be gathered only from what others saw. She made no record of it Fallen In an hour from heights of love and hope and exaltation, she lay stunned in the abyss. In intellect, calm and col- lected, she seems to have been as one numbed in feeling, too maimed for pain, suffering as though from a mor- tification of the heart The simple men and women of Volseni looked on Jier with awe and chattered fearfully of the red star; how that its wearer had been predestined to high enterprise, but foredoomed to mighty reverses of fortune.
