Give them two months in whieh to get
over this tremendous hysteta and
they'll tind their senses. Cabriel isn't
worth it, you see, and down In their
heaurts they know It. They really loved
young Dantan, who seems to be a
devil of a good fellow. I'll wager my
head that iII six weeks they'll ho wish
1ng he were back on the throne again.
And just to think of it, Yet ive, dear,
you were off there In the very heart of
Axphalin risking everything!" he cried,
wiping the moisture from i is brow.
"It is just eleven days since I left
Edelweiss, and I have had a lovely
journey," she said, with one of hlr
rare smiles. Ile shook his head grave
ly, and she resolved in her heart never
to give hinm aniother such cause for
"And in the meantinie, Mr. Grenfall
Lorry, you are blaming me and hat
Ing Ime and all that for being the real
cause of your wife's escapade," said
Beverly Calhoun plaintively. "I'm
awfully sorry. But you must remem
ber one thing, sir-I did not put her
up to thih ridiculous trip. She did it
of her own free will and accord. Be
sides, I am the one who mnet the lion
and almost got devoured, not Yetive,
it' you please."
"I'll punish you by turning you over
to old Count Marlanx, the commaiinder
of the army In Graustark," said Lor
ry laughingly. "Ile's a terrible ogre,
,worse than any 'lion."
"HI-eaven pity you, Beverly, if you
fall into hils elitihes!" (ried Yetlve.
"HeI has had five wives and survives to
look fori a sixth. You see how terrIlO
It would hw."
"I'm not. afraid of himl," hoastled Ber
erly, but there ca1me a tline when slhe
thought of those words wiIh a shuddier.
"By the way. Yetive, I have had
word fromn Iiarry An guish. Ire and
the countess will leave Paris this week,
If the hahy's willing, and 'will lie in
Edelweiss soon. You don't know how
It relieves me to know that Harry will
be with us at this time."
Yetive's eyes answered his enthusi
asm. Both had a warm and grateful
memory of the loyal service which the
young American had rendered his
friend when they had flist come to
Graustark in quest of the princess,
and both had a great regard for Ms
wife, the Countess Dagnar, who a:,
-Yetive's lady In waiting had been
through all the perils of those exciting I
days with them.
As they drew near the gates of Edel
weiss a large body of horsemen rode (
forth to meet them. The afternoon <
was well on the way to night, and the c
air of the valley was cool and refresh- t
Jug despite the rays of thme June sun. C
"Edelweiss at last," murmured R1ev- 1
erly, her face aglow'. "The heart of C
Graustark. Do you know that I have r
been b~rushing up on my grammar? I e
have learned the meaning of the word e
'Graustark,' and It seemse so appropri

"And here rides the oldest and stron
gest man in all Graustark -- the iron
Count of Marlanx," said Yetive, look
ing down the road. "See; the strange
gray man in front there is ouir greatest
general, our craftiest fighter, our most
,heartless warrior. Does he not look
like the gagle or the hawk?"
A moment later the parties met, and
the newcdmers swvung into line withI
the escort. Two men rode up to tihe
carrlage and saluted. One was Count
Marianx, the other Colonel Quinnox of
the royal guard. The count, leani and
gray as a wolf, revealed r-ows of huge
white teeth in his perfunctory smile of
welcome, while young Quinnox's face
fairly beamed with honest joy. Ini the
post that he held ho was but followIng
in the footsteps of his forefathers.
$ince history began in Graustark a|
Quinnor had been in charge of the cas-|
tIe guard. |
The "Iron Count," as he sometimes
was called, was past his sixtieth year.1
For twenty years he had been in com-|
mand of the army. One had but to
look at his strong, sardonic face to
know that he was a fearless leadler, a
savage tighter. Ills eyes were black,
piercing and never qluiet; hIs hair and|
elose cropped heard were almost snuow|
wvhite; his voice was heavy and with
nut a vestige of warmth. Since her
babyhood Yetivye had stood in awe ot
this grim old warrior. It was no un
-commnon thing for mothers to subtdue
.disobedient children wvith the threat to
-Jive them over to the Iron Count.
