King William, of the Mortal
World, has given his people free
fishing rights in his private waters.
One day, Annette, daughter of
Neptune, Monarch of the Sea, is
caught in a net, but frees herself.
Ker little sister, Angela, is next
caught, but failing to extricate
herself from the seaweed, dies, and
Annette swears to be revenged.
A "shell" Charm given to her by
the "Witch of the Sea," trans
forms her from Mermaid to mortal
Maiden, and she comes to land.
Meanwhile, King William finds
that Princess Olga, his fiance, is
unfaithful a n d conspiring with
Duke Boris against him. Walk
ing through the forest, he meets
AiihettC, ""g a r b e d ns a Wood
Nympth. They fall in love, she
little dreaming that he is the King
she had sworn to kill, He sends
an invitation for the state ball,
without divulging who the sender
is, and she goes for a chance to
kill the King. As she dances be
fore him, he conceals his identity
by constantly holding his hand
before his face. She draws a dag
ger about to kill him, when the
drunken Duke Boris seizes and
kisses her. The king orders the
room cleared; she recognizes him,
realizes she cannot kill the man
she loves, and rushes back to the
Time passes. Annette wants to
sec the man she loves, and comes
back to land, and learns that Duke
Boris is in power. The people
have arisen against the King for
imaginary wrongs, and li a v e
thrown him into prison. She re
solves to help him. Dressed as a
boy, she overpowers the jailer,
and is about to liberate him when
they are caught.
Annette is bound hand and foot
and thrown from a 60-foot cliff.
Being a wonderful swimmer, she
frees herself, swims ashore, only
to find herself struggling once
more with her would-be assassin.
They fight desperately on top of
the cliff, and fall together into the
waters below, where they fight
until he is killed. She swims back
to JJsave her lover. Olga finds
Annette's "shell" Charm, is trans
formed into a Mermaid, and
reaches the Cave of the "Witch of
the Sea," who curses her and
transforms her into a loathsome
Octopus. Annette, find-ng t h e
King is safe, tries to return to her
father, but the "shell" is lost,
and the link that binds her to the
Sea is gone. And she falls to her
knees sobbing, the King finds her,
takes hei to his arms, and makes
her his Oueen.

they are liable to confiscation under ordinary war conditions. We
would capture goods wherever the presumption is that they are des
tined to our enemies or from enemies."

is a failure.
