the other. "How soon can you get

not a moment to be lost." '
"Good glory, man, tell me what it Is!
What has happened? The prince
what of him?" cried Tullis, grasping
King's arm in the clutch of a vise.
"He sends his love and rescinds the
order of exile," said King, smiling,
then seriously: "Marlanx has taken
the city. It was all a game, this get
ting rid of you. The prince and the
others are besieged in the castle.
Thank God, we got to you in time!
Back here a couple" of miles we came
upon a small gang of robbers. We had.
a bit of shooting, and, I regret to say,
no one was bagged."
"Loraine where is she, King?"
"Don't tremble like that, old man.
She's safe enough in the castle. Oh,

Teady for the march Truxton King
and Hobbs related their story to
eager, horrified groups of officers.
Finally the battalion, augmented by
the misguided company from the de

into the defile, led by young Eabot.
Truxton King rode beside the brother
of the girl he loved, uttering words of
cheer and encduragement.
"The Countess Ingomede has any
thing been heard from her?" asked
Tullis. He had been thinking of her
for days and nights.
"Well, nothing definite," said King

More than that, he had uniimbered

.ROM the highlands below tne
Monastery Captain Haas and
his men were able to study the
sifnnrinn in the city. The im
practicability of an assault on any one
of the stubborn, well guarded" gates
was at once recogned. A. force of
700 men, no matter how well trained
or how determined, could not be ex
pected to surmount walls that had
often withstood the attack of as many
thousands. The wisdom of delaying
until a few thousand loyal though
poorly armed countrymen could be
brought into play against the city ap
pealed at once to Prince Dantan and
Squads of men were sent without de
lay into the hills and valleys to call
the panic stricken, wavering farmers
into the fold. John Tullis headed the
company that struck off into the well
populated Ganlook district.
Marlanx, as if realizing the nature
of the movement in the hills, began
a furious assault on the gates leading
to the castle." The watchers in the hills
could see as well as hear the conflict
that raged almost at their feet, so to
The next morning Captain Haas an
nounced to his followers that Marlanx
had begun to shell the castle. Big
guns in the fortress were hurling great
shells over the city, dropping them in
the park. On the other hand, Colonel
Quinnox during the night had swung
three Gatling guns to the top of the
wall; they were stationed at intervals
along the wall, commanding every
point from which an assault might be
That night recruits from the farms
and villages began to straggle into the
camp. They were armed with rifles,
ordinary shotguns and unique blun
derbusses, swords, staves and aged
lances. All were willing to die in the
service o the little prince. By the
close of the second day nearly 3,000
men were encamped above the city.
Late that night John Tullis rofce into
camp at the head of a great company
from the Ganlook province. He had
retaken the town of Ganlook, seized

City Council Passes Resolu
tion Requiring Water
Company to Do So.
The overflow session or the city coun
cil which was held Thursday afternoon,
was brief and to the point. After the
ordinance for the paving: of North
Campbell street had been read and
passed city attorney Cold-well read a
resolution ordering: the International
Water company to make the Improve
ments necessary to permit street paving:
on Missouri and other streets, forwhich
arrangements have been made to pave.
A resolution ordering: the water com
pany to instal a't the Watts well a
,,mp which had been taken from this
-well for use on ii-e mesa, was also read
by the city attorney, both resolutions
passing by a unanimous vote. Then
the council adjourned and started on a
tour of insnection of the south part
of the city in company with health
officer Anderson, who wished the coun
cil to see the unsanitary condition of
the houses in that section.
The ordinance for the. paving: of
North Campbell street was read first
and passed and the bid of the Petro
lithic Paving- company was then ac
cepted. The city attorney presented a reso
lution relative to the improvement of
water mains and the placing- of fire
hydrants on Missouri street and other
streets to be paved.
Mayor Robinson reported that one of
the engines at the Watts well had been
removed to the mesa. He recommended
that this engine be reinstalled at the
Watts well in order to have a double
unit at the Watts well, where approxi
mately one-third of the water is now
pumped into the city mains. This pre
caution, the mayor explained, was for
fire protection. A resolution to this
effect was read and adopted.
The resolution read by city attorney
Coldwell svtated that since there are no
water mains on portions of the streets
to be paved or that these mains are
wholly insufficient in size and In some
instances almost useless because of de
cay, it be directed that the International
"Water company be required to at once
lay water mains on the following
streets, or to complete the existing
mains: Campbell street, from Franklin
to Hill, West San Antonio street from
El Paso to Davis, North El Paso street
from Franklin to Nevada, West Over
land from Chihuahua to Durango. West
Missouri from Oregon to Putnam street,
Franklin street from North El Paso
.street to Mesa avoiue, Ea.t Missouri
from Noble to Austin street. Also that
a total of 20 fire hydrants, valves and
valve boxes be installed on these
It has been found necessary In a ma
jority of instances where the mains
are to be replaced that the mains are
too small for the street and hydrant
service. This resolution was carried
by a unanimous vote of the council.
