death came to the wretches who were

At 3 o'clock the Iron Count coolly
sent messengers to the homes of the

city. They, with the priests, the doc

manufacturers, were commanded to ap

purpose of discussing the welfare of
the city and its people.
Marlanx stated his position clearly.
He left no roomfor doubt In their
minds. The strings were in his hands.
Without hesitation he informed the
leading men of the city that he was
to be the Prince of Graustark.
