"Let me know just where I am,
O'Ryan." I said after a pause. "What

"I began telling the truth, and when
I saw how interested they were I var

treasure says that a great knight abaH

"But what is the religion of Draas en

Verrall," he said. "They are not hea

has a symbol. Ton have seen how the
mountain Khrym stands like s sen
tinel over tbe land. It is tbe most
prominent feature, and when thinking
of tbe author of his being and ruler of
his destiny every true Druesealander
think of Khrym; therefore Khrym
has come to mean God, and, although
they do not worship the mountain,
they believe that the appearance of
tbe mountain, reflect the pleasure or
displeasure of the Almighty."

The next morning was clear and
sunny. Our quarters overlooked s
large square, which appeared to be the
center of the town, and, although it
was early when I awoke, tbe business
of the day was commenced. 0Eyan
was still sleeping, and I did not wake
blm. Men and women were hurrying
to and fro across tbe square, some
staying to gossip for a few moments
with their neighbors, talking eagerly,
and I could not help thinking that
their conversation was of me. Look
ing across tbe town, I could see a
large portion of the camp, where all
was movement and bustle, armor and
arms glistening In the sun, and the
dull rumble of many voices ascended
to my ears. Beyond tbe camp, across
the spur of the lower hills, I could see
tbe summit of Khrym standing out
white against the blue sky.
Tbe sound of trumpets broke my rev
erie. Into the square marched a troop
of warriors with lances sloped and
with rhythmical tread, and In the
midst of them, attended by a -dozen
knights, was Princess Darta. She rode
as a man. clothed In a light coat of
mall, s low' steel helmet upon her head,
from underneath which strayed a lock
or two of her hair. Her limbs were
cssed In steel, snd her horse was In
armor. No wonder her soldiers wor
"A brave show. Sir Knight."
I had not beard O'Ryan stirring, and
be startled me.

"Then shell marry some one else.

man than Pat, but Pat living Is worth

"Cheer up, O'Ryan." I said. "Ton
must win her back If necessary.'"
The center of the square was kept
dear, and here about noes three sets
ef double stakes were fixed firmly ta
Presently a single trumpet sounded,
and as Its last note echoed among the
bins a great shout burst Into the air,
a shout that woke the bills to voice
again. A silence foHewed, and Z eeald

"Some religious ceremony, X said.
There waa the clatter of horses
hoofs, and a troop of knights, beaded
by Count Vasca, appeared. I locked
among them to find the princess, but
ane was nor there. There was a sav
age satisfaction in the count's face as
he glanced up at our windows. Wo
both drew back.
"That man will be our greatest ene

should not see us watching."
"His looks augur us no good," I an
swered. "It may be that the priests
hare decided against me."
"No. There Is no audience until after
sunset. Ton beard the command yes
terday." "The count may know beforehand."
"I don't think the old priests would
make a confidant of blm. In their en
mlty lies our safety."
The doings in the square prevented
me from asking further questions.
A company of soldiers marched out
from tbe building below us, having in
their midst three men, naked almost,
with their arms bound tightly behind
them. They were followed by priests
walking two and two.
Each prisoner was bound between
two stakes, bis arms snd legs out

Suddenly I remembered the words of
the priest that tomorrow Khrym

meant Great heavens. It was too hor

O'Ryan's heavy band was on my arm.
A flourish of trumpets rang out;
three swords like lightning strokes
flashed in the sunlight; three bodies
quivered for a moment and then bung
motionless upon the stakes.
My blood was boiling. Such cold
blooded murder was appalling, sick
ening, and I longed for freedom to
dash into the midst of those fiends and
avenge the victims.
