A FEW hours later all was dark
and silent within the castle. On
the stone w'alks below the
steady tread of sentinels rose
on the still air. In the hallways the
trusted guardstneh glided about' like
specters or stood like statues. An hour
befgre the great edifice bad been bright
and full of animation. Now it slum
It was 2 o'clock. The breath of roses
scented the air; the gurgle of fountains
was the only music that touched the
ear. Beverly Calhoun,. disnissing iunt
Fanny, , stepped from her window
out upon the great stone balcony. A
rich oriental dressing gown, loose and
'comfortable, was her costume. Some
thing told her that sleep would be a
long time coming, .and an hour In the
warm, delightful atmosphere of the
night was more attractive than the
close, sleepless silence of her own room.
Every .window along the balcony was
dark, proving that the entire household
had retired to rest.
She was troubled. The fear had en
tered hei head . that. the castle folk
were regretting ,the advent of Baldos,
that every one was questioning the wis
dom of his being in the position he
occupied through her devices. Her talk
with him did much to upset her tran
quillity. That he knew so much or the
fortress bore out the subtle suspIlcions
of Dangloss and perhaps others. She
was troubled, not that she doubted
him, but that if anything went wrong
an accusation against him, however
unjust, would be dilficult to overcome.
And she would be to blame in a large
For many minutes she sat In the
dark shadow of a great pillar. her el
bows upon the cool balustrade, staring
dreamily Into the star studded vault
1.above. Far away In the air she could
see the tlny yellow lights of the monas
tery. lonely sentinel on the mountain
top. From the. heights near that abode
of ' peace and penitence an. enemy
-could destro . the fortress to the south.
Had not lBdildos told herso? One big
gun .wquld- do the work if It could be
taken to tht altitude. Baldos could
draw a perfect miap of the fortress.
He could tell precisely where the shells
should fall. And already the chler

fze his knowledge. They were watch
ng him.; they were warning her.
For the erst time since shte camne to
the castle she felt a sense of loneliness,
a certain .unhapp)Iness. She could not
shake off the reeling that she wa-s,
after anl, alone in her belier In Rlaldos.
'11er heart told her that the tall,
straightforwardl fellow she had met in
the lills was as honest as the day.
She was deceiving him, she realized,
but he was misleading no one. Off In
a distant .part of the castle ground she
could see the long square shadow that
marked the location of the barracks
and mess room. There he was sleep-.
lng, confidently believing In her and
her power to sav-e h.im from all harm.
Something In her soul cried out to him'
that she wouldl be stanch andI true and
that b'e might 'sleep without a tremor
