of the princess, althourgh the hour was
early. Beverly peered forth 'curiously
as the coach moved ofli. The quaint,

gates and into the countryse.e. A
company of cavalrymen acted as es

boots, with the deep blue Jackets, re
minded Beverly more than ev'er of the
operatic figures she had seen so often
at home. There was a fierce, dark cast
to the faces of these soldiers, hio'vever,
that removed any suggestion of play.
The girl was in ecstasies. EverythIng
about her appealed to the romaintic

so unreal and so like the story book.
The princess smiled lovingly upon the
throngs that lined the street. Thiere

a shadow crossing her face.
Dangloss was to remain in Qanlook
for several days, ,on guard against
manifestations by the Axphalinians. A
corps of spies and scouts was working
with him, and couriers were ready to
ride at a momient's notice to the castle'
