"There will be trouble in Scotland.

"My dear Fltzwilllam," said Kllby,
without any gravity, "the thing Is ab

Issue, except a daughter Illegitimate."
"What of that!" snapped the major.

For a full minute Captain Kllby stared
at the major. He did not like this man.

lln the icall of soldterllness. And all at

"To lnqVlre," said Fltzwilllam, Im

With a 3udden and new significance
the tnar.t at the tavern and the words
that followed had flashed through Fita
wllllam's heated btaln.
"I 11 me hls if you can tell me noth

"Yes, he's the schoolmaster," said
Kllby. more puzzled than u"8'. "He is

Suddenly Kllby looked up at the ma

ijle made a. nw mock bow to his sub

CHARL.ES Edward got out of bed
that Saturday. At first a little
weak; movement soon restored
him to almost usual activity.
Tho clothes which he had worn In the
o were much the worst for their lm
iXnerslon. And, for reasons of his own,
Jamie Dalglelsh would not hear of the
stranger going abroad wearing any
thing as conspicuous In Scotland as the
Later In the day the domlnlne re
turned from awalk abroad with a bun
dle containing a Highland costume. Be
sides the usual necessary garments
. there was a plaid, also a Wit of tartan.
The tartan, either by design or acci
dent, ;vas the royal Stuart.
"It will suit you, sire," said Dalglelsh.
At the respectful address, Caslmlr
looked up quickly. The dominie was
regarding him with almost doglike ad
I miration and servitude. Charles Ed
ward turned abruptly to the window.
IHe remained there for a few minutes,
'a tall, handsome figure, silhouetted
aealnst tho light. When he turned to
Dalclelsh he said simply:
"If ever I can tepay, I will."
Ho looked long and curiously at the
pile of clothing. It was the regalia of
race, the insignia of a chieftain. A
great cairngorm stone glowed yellow
amid the red of the tartan. Sliver but
tons and broad brooches suggested the
splendor of whom should wear them.
"Put them on." said Dalelelsh. "Then
Z shall know my King."
Caslmer raised a hand In a gesture
"No. Not that." he said. "I cannot
bear the word. Let me be myself a
little while longer. Call me Castmlr,
oraye, Charlie. If you will."
"Charlie!" said the dominie, like a
woman whispering the beloved's name
Dalglelsh left the "stewdy" and went
to the kitchen. Margaret met him. her
face radiant, her eyes wide and moist.
She had not slept, at least her dream
had been wakeful. Yet this morning
she was more beautiful than her father
had ever noticed before. She had be
come a woman all ai once. There was
,c. different way of breathing; her throat
i seemed fuller and her head differently
What had brought this change, the
'girl did not know herself. Her thoughts
had been filled with the man ever since
she had seen him first. But It was not
the man Had he been a mere man she
would have sternly checked her thought.
He was the King! Why should she ot
lov her King?
"What does he do? What does he
fC? How li ho?" the asked tremulous.
The dominie waved an Impatient, Im
perative hand. Poor dominie I He was
moving in a dream. Blr James Dalg
lelsh was he! A grand name for a
Scot, And he was tho King's friend
tho King's guardian, the King's ad
viser Sir James Dalglelsh, the King
maker. "Hilsh, child I" said he.
A little troubled crowd appeared on
Margaret's brow. It was a momentary
dread of she knew not Svhat.
But It passed as she looked at her
father and understood. She seemed to
hear, with him, the tread of the clans
men's feet, the roll of the drums and
the flcrco slogan of the pipes. What
could withstand the wild men of the
mountains the men who had fought
Fngland's' batUes for her? What could
England to do against tho Highlanders
wiien thev thundered across the border
with the rightful King of Scotland at
their head? the Immortal Charlie who
would come and "come again" until
me nouse-or Hanover was crumbled in
The dominie suddenly halted and lis
tened. Through walls and closod doors
came the voice of a fiddle, played by no
novice. It was an old lament which
presently passed Into a lively Scotch
reel. Dalglelsh looked at his daughter,
and the tears laughed In his eyes. He
waved his hand to her a"d marched to
the "stewdy" door, wnere he paused
long enough to give a respectful knock.
"Come In!" cried a gay voice. '
Jamie entered. Then he stood for a
moment, staring at a man transformed.
The last dounbt in the schoolmaster's
mind was wiped out, never to return.
The personage before him was could
bo no other than the King of Scotland!
Caslmlr, translating the expression of
the dominie's face correctly, entered Into
the spirit of the moment. He laid aside
the fiddle and folded his arms.
Margaret, running to her father's side
In answer to his hoarse summons, saw
her prince oomo again to his own land,
his own people, his own costume. The
royal kilt half revealed a pair of
straight, sinewy UmbH,4wlth bare, clean
chlsseled knees. The royal tartan, fall
ing from his brooched shoulder to his
ankles, Imparted a dashing grace to the
tall figure, while the gleaming buttons,
dlrk-hllts, and the cairngorm stone add
ed to that color which is unrivaled in
the Stuart costume.
Over the refined face with the little
mustache and tho Imperial chin-spot
was a bonnet of blue, with a silver
clasp on the left side of It. Margaret's
eyes traveled over the man from his
buckled shoes to the clasped bonnet.
Then she rushed to the front room.
In a minute she came panting back
Brushing her rapt father aside, she
ran to Caslmlr. His face betrayed as
tonishment at her impetuosity. She saw
It, and came to a halt before him, a con
fused blush on her bonnle face. In her
hand she carried a pair of black-cock's
Caslmlr Instinctively took the bonnet
from his head. She, misunderstanding
the action, held out her hand to take It.
He looked at her questioning!'. Then he
saw what she wanted.
Her fingers trembled as she fastened
the arching feathers In the silver clasp.
Presently Bhe llftoi her eyes to bis and
held out tho bonnet. A swift change
came over the man's face as she curt
"No! No!" he exclaimed. "It Is I
He drooped on one knee an she
straightened up, for he had seen the
confusion and pain of misunderstanding
In her face. He seized the hand whloh
held tho bonnet and touched it with his
lips., Then he arose and looked down
into her radiant face. He took the bon
net and placed It reverently upon her
own head. As Napoleon's hat will trans
form almost any face to a likeness of
the Corslcan, so In an Instant all the
racial features of the Scotchwoman
stood revealed, doubly strong, beneath
the blue bonnet with the proud black
"If I am Charles Edward," said Cas
lmlr. with a sad smile, "then have I
found brave Flora Macdonald."
The dominie In the doorway tried to
cry out a protest against the parellel,
but his tongue clove to the roof of his
mouth, for Margaret was looking up
Into the face of the prince with eyes
that saw nothing, dreaming nothing, but
"Margaret, "'said the dominie, when
they were together again In the kitchen,
"I must go now. The gathering Is at

wlstfulness, "I wish that all may see

OF THE FIRE.
He found tho spring a large one, which
came splashing down from the hill and
made a big pond In the center of a very
largo circle entirely of sand. Though
no a blade of grass grew near the
spring, the prairie came to within a
quarter of a mile on one side and the
hills on tho other.
After breakfast the next morning Clar
ence noticed a strange gray cloud over
on the eastern edge of the prairie, and
It seemed to grow each moment. Pres
ently he saw tongues of flame.
"The nralrle la afire, mother." he
called. "Pack everything in tho wagon
while I hitch, and we will run for tho

blackened land as It passed.
