What could she do? If there was one
spot where a princess should not look
like a fright, it waa in the wilderness,
where everyone else did.
The question was answered by a dis
creet rap and a discreeter "It is I,"
and Mr. Winn banded in the identical
eatray. All very well, and it certain

Its shaded solitude; the festooned
verdure sweeping her cheeks had been
gracious in its touch, and the twitter

the sounds of aery and a crash reached
The groom had eome to grief. Jn
crossing the bridge his horse's hoof
had struck through between the rot
ten planks; the beast lay. on its side,
struggling, bnt unable to rise; the
man was picking himself out from the
brambles. Neither . Monica nor her
servant could relieve the poor animal's
case. It seemed neceacary. then, that
he ahonkl hold down hia head to save
his leg front breaking, and that she

Dimly grasping the groom's rather
dim directions to a clearing where
woodmen were at work, Monica start-
ed on the quest. Ere she had gone a'
half mile ahe was disconcerted; ere
the distance reached a mile ahe waa
bewildered, for a sudden darkness, a
heavy, sickish stillness in the air
presaged a storm.
Now, if there waa one thing, and
there were many, of which Monica
Abererombie was afraid it waa a thun
