J. D. Moore's Here Yet
A lot of people have ups and downs,
But mine have alway been down,
Sometimes I'm glad, sometimes I'm
sad, but long to tell mv story when we
battlewhanged through this vain world.
I am in the market for Beef, 8heep,
Pork and Mutton. Sell a heap of meat,
and always like to sell to those who
want to buy of me. but don't want to
vell to those who don't want to buy of
me, because there are enough that trade
with me to take all that I can get.
THE THIRI) FACT.
I still buy hides green or dried. I buy
anything you got, always want some
thing but, can't, tell what. So-cone and
see how it will be when you buy your
meat from me. And remember the old
meat market Moore as in days of yore.
The ola meat market,

"It has come to our ears that you

I mentioned that it could be tiken with
ease." He was not looking .at Count
Mariatfx, but 'he kiiew 'thft the old
man's eyes were flaming. Then he
proceeded to tell the board how he
could overcome the fortress, elaborat
lg on his remarks to Beverly. The
ministers listened in wonder to the
words of this calm, indifferent young
"Will you oblige us by making a
rough draft of the fort's interior?" ask
ed Lorry after a solemn pause. Bal
dos took the paper and In remarkably
quick time drew the exact lay of the
fortress. The sketch went the rounds
and apprehensive looks were exchang
ed by the ministers.
"It Is accurate, by Jove," exclaimed
Lorry.. "I doubt it a dweller In the
fort could 'do'better. You must have
been very observing."
"And very much interested," snarled
. "Only -so far as 1 Imagined my ob- ]
servatious might be of benefit to some
one else," said Baldos coolly. Again
silence was like death.
"Do you know what you are say
ing, Baldos?" asked Lorry after a mo
"Certainly. Mr. Lorry. It Is the duty
of any servant of her higkness to give
her all that he has in him. If my ob
servations can be of help to her I feel
in duty bound to make the best of
them for her sake, not for my own."
"Perhaps you can suggest modifica
tons in the fort," snarled Marlanx.
"Why 'don't you do it. sir, and let us
have the benefit of your superior Intel
ligence? No, gentlemen, all this prat
Ing of loyalty need not deceive us," he
cried, springing to his feet. "The fel
low Is nothiug more nor less than anl
infernal spy, and the Tower Is the place
for him! He can do no harm there."
"If It were my intention to do harm,
gentlemen, do you imagine that I
should withhold my information for
days?" asked Baldos. "If I am a spy
you msay rest assured that Count Mar
lanx's kindnesses should not have been
so loirg disregarded. A spy does not
believe in delays."
"M.y-my kindnesses?" cried MaT
lanx. "What do you mean, sir?"
"I mean this, Count Marlanx," said
Baldos, looking steadlly int the -eyges
of 'tbe head of the army. -"It was .kind
and considerate of you to admit ue -to
the :fortress, no matter In what capaci
ty.,<'especially at a critleal t~me lIke iths.
You did not know me, you had no way
of telling whether my intentions were
honest or otherwise, and yet I was per
mitted to go through the fort from end
to -end. No spy could wish for greater
generosity thlan that."
An almost imiperceptible smile went
around the table, and every listener
but one breathed more freely. The
candor and boldness of the guard won
the respect and confidence of all except
Mlarlanx. The Iron Count was white
with anger. He took the examination
out of Lorry's hands and pied the
stranger with insulting questi4ns, each
calm answer making him more furious ~
than before. At last, In sheer Impo
tence, lie relapsed into slence, waving
his handI to Lorry to indicate that he
"You will understand, Baldos, that
we have some cause for apprehension,"
said Lorry, immensely gratiied by the
outcome of the tilt. "You are a stran

there is reason to believe that you are
not what you represent yourself to
"I am a humble guard at present, sir,
and a loyal one. My life is yours
should I prove otherwise."
Yetive whispered something in Lor
ry's ear at this juncture. She was vis
IIbly pleased and excited, Ie looked
Idoubtful for %fn instant andl then ap
Iparently followed her suggestion, re
gardless of consequences.
I"Would you be willing to utilize your
knowledge as an engineer by suggest
ing means to strengthen the fortr~ess?"
The others stared. In fresh amazement.
'irx went as white as death.

Ido anything the princess comn
me to do," said Baldos easily.
Ya nean that you serve her only ?"
A~ sev her first, sir. If she were here
she could command me to die, and
there would be an end to Baldos." And
