"Give it me," said David, eag
erly. "But shall I let you return
home through the streets alone so
"No, no fly. Each moment is
like a precious jewel. Sometime,"
said the lady, with eyes long and
cozening, like a gypsy's, "I will
try to thank you for your goodness."
The poet thrust the letter into
his breast and bounded down the
stairway. The lady, when he was
gone, returned to the room below.
The eloquent eyebrows of the
marquis interrogated her.
"He is gone," she said, "as
fleet and stupid as one of his own
sheep, to deliver it."
The table shook again from the
batter of Captain Desrolles' fist.
"Sacred name!" he cried: I
have left my pistols behind! I
can trust no others."
"Take this," said the marquis,
drawing from beneath his cloak a
shining, great weapon, ornament
ed with cavern silver. There
are none truer. But guard it
closely, for it bears my arms and
crest, and already I am suspected.
Me, I must put many leagues be
tween myself and Paris this night.
Tomorrow must find me in my
chateau. After you, der countess."
David sped. At the south gate
of the king's residence a halberd
laid to his breast, but he turned
its point with the words: "The
falcon has left his nest."
"Pass, brother said the guard,
and go quickly."
On the south steps of the palace
they move to seize him, but again
the mot de passe charmed the
watchers. One among them step
ped forward and began: "Let
him strike " but a flurry among
the guards told of a surprise. A
man of keen look and soldierly
stride suddenly pressed through
them and seize the letter which
David held in his hand. "Come
with me," he said, and led him
inside the great hall. Then he
tore open the letter and read it.
He beckoned to a man uniformed
as an omcer ot musKeteers, who
'Captain Tetreau, you will have
the guards at the south entrance
and the south gate arrested and
confined. Place men known to be
loyal in their places." To David
he said: "Come with me."
He conducted him through a
corridor and an anteroom into a
spacious chamber, where a mel
ancholy man, somberly dressed,
sat brooding in a great leather
covered chair. To that man he
"Sire. I have told you that the
palace is as full of traitors and spies
as a sewer is of rats. You have

him here that your majesty may
no longer think my zeal exces

king, stirring in his chair. Hej
looked at David with heavy eyes
dulled by an opaque firm. The
poet bent his knee.
From where do you come?" ask
ed the king.
"From the villiage of Vernoy,
in the piovince of Eure-et-Loir,
"What do you follow in Paris?"
"I I would be a poet, sire."
"What did you in Vernoy?"
"I minded my father's flocks of
The king stirred again, and the
film lifted from his eyes.
"Ah! in the fields!"
"You lived in the fields; youj
went out in the cool of the morn-1
ing and lay among the hedges in j
the grass. The flocks distributed
themselves upon the hillside; you j
drank of the living stream; youj
ate your sweet, brown bread in the j
shade, and you listened, doubtless,
to the blackbirds piping in the
grove. Is not that so, shepherd?"
"It is, sire," answered David,
with a sigh; "and to the bees at
the flowers, and maybe, to the
grape gatherers singing on the
"Yes, yes," said the king,
impatiently; maybe to them; but
surely to the blackbirds. They
whistled often, in the grove, did
"Nowhere, sire, so sweetly as
in Eure-et-Loir. I have endeavor

verses that I have written."

proven to give offense." He sank
lino his cnair, anu the mm came
again over his eyes.

Tonight is the anniversary of
dauphin's death. If he goes as is
his custom, to midnight mass to
pray for the soul of his son, the
falcon will strike, at the corner of
the Rue Esplanade. If this be his
intention, set a red light in the
upper room at the southwest corner
of the palace, that the falcon may
"Peasant," said the duke, stern
ly, you have heard these words.
Who gave you this message to
My lord duke," said David,
sincerely, I will tell you. A!
lady gave it to me. She said heri
mother was ill, and that this writ-1
ing would tetcli her uncle to her
bedside. I do not know the mean
ing of the letter, but I will swear
that she is beautiful and good."
'Describe the woman," com
manded the duke, And how came
you to come to be her dupe?"
"Describe her?" said David with
a tender smile. You would com
mand words to perform miracles.
Well, she is made of sunshine and
deep shade. She is slender, like
the alders, and moves with their
grace. Her eyes change while
you gaze into them; now round,
and then half shut as the sun
peeps between two clouds. When
she comes, heaven is all about her;
when she leaves, there is chaos and
a scent of hawthorne blossoms.
She came to me in the Rue Conti,

duke, turning to the king, "that

David, earnestly, "I hope my poor
words have done no injustice. I
have looked into that lady's eyes
I will stake my life that she is an
angel, letter or no letter."

Do you accept the test?"
David smiled. "I have looked

Half an hour before 12 the Duke
D'Aumale, with his own hands,
set a red lamp in the southwest
window of the palace. At ten
minutes to the hour, David, lean
ing on his arm, dressed as the
king, from top to toe, with his
head bowed in his cloak, walked
slowly from the royal apartments
to the waitingcarriage. The duke
assisted him inside, and closed the
door. The carriage whirled away
along its route to the cathedral.
On the qui vive in a house at
the corner of the Rue Esplanade
was Capain Tetreau with 20 men,
ready to pounce upon the conspi
rators when they should appear.
But it seemed that, for some
reason, tlie plotters had slightly
altered their plans. When the
royal carriage hud reached the
Rue Christopher, one square near
er than the Rue Esplanade, forth
from it burst Captain Desrolles,
with his band of would-be regi
cides, and assailed the equipage.

in dispatches sent by h ira to
Christiauia. One of these dis
patches was addressed t o King
Frederick. Its contents were not
made known, but another said:
"Pole reached, 14-17 December."
The two dates were taken t o
mean that Amundsen had reached
the point he sought December 14
and remained there four days and
those who know the explorer well,
especially Professor Mohn, the
famous Norwegian meteorologist,
expressed the belief that Amundsen
during this period had made such
observations and calculations a s
would render impossible a contro
versy similar to that which rose
from the north pole discovery.
On learning of the success of his
subject King Haakon sent a tele
g r a in to congratulate Captain
Amundsen on behalf o f himself
and the queen, and consented to
use of his name and that of his
wife on the maps of the new ter
ritory of Norway in the Antartic.
