H "TrTe Age of Lead.
Bl Wo aro wont to speak of this era
BV as tho "ago of Iron," and thero is no
B gainsaying that, Industrially speaking,
B Iron Is a "precious metal."
m Novertholcss, fow people realize
B how useful, f not absolutely neqes!
Bf sary, to modern civilization, is that
other metal, lead. Soft, yielding
Bf pliable, It Is not much llko Its sister

B ties aro what give It such a prominent
place in the arts and Industries.
H x Modern plumbing, requiring manj,

, CHAPTER I.
The Hall of the Guard.
Loud rang the laughter In the hnll
of tho mon-at-arms at CaBtlo Kerns
berg. Thero had como an embassy
from tho hereditary Princess of Plnss
enburg, recently established upon tho
throno of her ancestors, to the Duch
ess Joan of Hohcnsteln, ruler of that
cluster of hill statelets which Is railed
collectively Masurcnland, and which
Includes, besides Hohenstoln, tho
original Eaglo's Eyrlo, Kernswnld
also, and Marlcnfeld.
Above, In tho hall of audience, tho
ambassador, ono Leopold von Des
sauer, a great lord and most learned
councillor of state, sat.alone with tho
young duchess. They were eating of
the baked meats and drinking tho
good nhonlsh up there. But, after all,
it was much merrier down below with
Werner von Orscln, Alt Plkkcr, Peter
Balta, and John of Thorn, though
what thoy ate was mostly but plain
ox-flesh, and their drink tho strong
alo native to the hill lands, which is
called Wcndlsh mead.
"Get you down, Captains Jorlan and
Boris," tho young duchess had com
manded, looking very handsome and
haughty In tho prldo of her twenty
one years, her olght strong castles,
and her two thousand men ready to
rise at her word; "down to the hall,
where my officers send round tho was
sail. If they do not treat you well,
o'en como up and tell It to mo."
"Good!" had responded tho two sol
diers of tho Princess of Plassonburg,
turning them about as' If they had
been hinged on tho samo stick, and
starting forward with precisely tho
shame stiff hitch from tho halt, they
raado for tho door. V
"But stay," Joan of Hohenstoln had
said, ero thoy reached it, "hero aro a
couplo of rings. My father left me
one or two such. Fit them upon your
fingers and when you return glyo
them to tho maidens of your, choice."
And with their rings upon their lit
tle fingers tho two burly captains went
down tho narrow stair of Castlo
Kernsherg. Being arrived at tho hall
beneath they toon found themselves
tho center of a hospltablo circle. Gruff,
bearded Wondlsh men were those of
ficers of tho young duchess; not a
butterfly youngling nor a courtly car
pet knight among them, but men tan
ned Hko shlpmcn of the Baltic, sol
ars mostly who had served under
hu'r father Henry, foraging upon occa
sion ns far as the Mark. In ono direc
tion and into Dor-Russia In tho other,
men grounded and compacted after
tho hearts of Jorlan and Boris.
It was small wonder that among
such congenial society tho ox-men-at-arms
found themselves presently vory
much at home. Scarcely wero thoy
sented when Jorlan began to brag
of tho gift tho duchess had given him
for tho maiden of his troth.
"And Boris hero, that hulking co
bold, that Hans Klapper upon tho
housetops, had well-nigh spoiled tho
Jest; for when her ladyship askedihlm
a second tlmo in her sweet volco for
tho namo of his 'betrothed,' ho must
needs lay his tonguo to 'aretchou,'
Instead of 'Katrin,' as he had done at
Werner von Orseln, tho eldest and
gravest of all, glanced round tho full
clrclo of his mess. Then ho looked
back at tho two captains of tho om
bassy guard of Plassenburg with a
"And you. lied about, your sweet
hearts to the Duchess Joan" he said.
"Ho, ha! Yes! I trow yes," quoth
Jorlan Jovially. "Wino may be dear,

but this ring will pay tho sweets of
many a night!" , t,
"Ha, ha! It will, will It" said Wer
ner, the chlof captain, grimly.
"Ayo, truly," echoed Boris, tho
mead beginning to work nuttlly under
bis ste61 cap, "when wo molt this

chlof captain, at this point. "Sit down,
gentlemen! Captains Jorlan and
Boris, you do not seem to know that
you am ng longor In Plassonburg.
Hore aro no tables of Karl tho Mil
ker's Son to hamper our llogo mis
tress. Do you know that you havo
lied to her and mado a Jest of It?"
He spoke very bIow1j-, leaning to
ward them and punctuating his mean
ing upon tho palm of his left hand
with tho lingers of his right. "If I,
Werner of Orcein, wero now to walk
upstairs, and In so ninny words tell
my lady, 'the sweet, easy princess,'
as you namo her, Joan of the Sword,
as wo aro proud "
"Joan of tho Swordl Hoch!'1
Tho men-at-arms at tho Ibwer table,
,tho bearded captains nt tho high
board, the very page boys lounging In
tho niches, rose to their feet nt the
very namo, pronounced In a volco of
thundor-p'rldo by Chief Captain Wer
ner. "I thank you, gentlemen, on behalf
of my lady, In whose nnmo I com
mand here,' said Werner, bowing cere
monldualy to hll around, whllo tho
others settled themselves to listen.
"Now, worthy soldiers of Plasson
burg," ho went on, "be It known to
you that If (to suppose a caso which
will not happen) I wero to tell our
Lady Joan what you have confessed
to us hero and boasted of that you

round' tho hall as tho two stout sol

tudinous shoutings and handshakings.
Tho two men had stopped perforco,
for tho doors worn in tho hands of
tho soldiers of tho guard, and tho plko
points clustered thick In their paths

will sit. Now hearken well," said
Werner; "theso good fellows of mine

Through tho black oblong of tho
dungeon doorway thero camo a lad of
seventeen or eighteen, tall, slim,
dark-browed, limber. Ho walked be
tweon two men-at-arms, who hold his
rlsts firmly on either side. His hands
woro chained togother, and from be
tween them dangled a spiked ball that
clanked heavily on tho floor as ho
stumbled forward rather than wnlked
Into tho room. Ho had black hair
that waved from his forohead In a
backward sweep, a noso of slightly
Roman shapo, which, together with
his bold eaglo's eyes, had obtained
him the namo of tho Spar or Sparrow

Tho lad Maurice von Lynar stood

Senator Depow was explaining to a
