porrT entered, 1 turns I have some
news for you. Borrovina is to be a
republic. Your king has come to the
conclusion that the days of kings In
thin climate are about at an end. I
have sounded the tea;perunient of the
people, and I telleve that what they
want is a government head that they
can change when they feel that things
; are not going along just as they liked,
j The people are ripe for a republic

responsible for saving BorroFina from

single exception seemed to display just
a little nervousness as to the safety of
the king's step. Regarding the candi-

there was no doubt about the grant
things he had done for Borrovina, but

! who bad become a rich man because of
the thriving condition which had come
to the country, had a big banner out in
front of the hotel announcing:
rather start another revolution :h:n
be defeated for the presidency. He
quickly abandoned that plan, however,
when Kndulski reminded him that he
hadn't been very successful -with revo
lutions even when the country was
poverty stricken, and Radnlski couldn't j
see how he was going to convince any- I
liody that this was a real good time to !

know, they are down near the hotel

making all sons of money, I under
stand." "Send for them?" ordered the prince.
"I think I'll go myself,'-' said Radulski.
Two hours later the two Englishman

Eveu I'rince Vladimir welcomed the
announcement that the kiug had de
cided to make the kingdom a republic.
The prince, who refused to abandon
bis custom of wearing a uniform on all
! occasions, was sitting in liis palac e
when he received the news from Ita
dulski. "Excellent:" said the prince.
"And not only is Bor-ovinti 10 be
: come a republic, but llawthoxe is to
be its first president."
"Is be now?" said the princ "And
: who elected him?"
' "Well, he hasn't been elected yet.
j but he is the king's choice for the of
lfice." explained Radulski.
"So! Now, I'll tell you something,
i Itndulski. Do you remember that day
tip in the palace when I told them that
i (hey would not hear from me until
! Borrovina was a republic?"
"I reir.ember." replied Radulski.
"Weil, now is the time. Here! I'll
write a statement and you lufrry down
i to the nev-spnper offices nud see that
it is published."
In the statement the prince announc
ed himself as a candidate for the pres
idency of Borrovina. He denounced
Hawthorne ns an intruder and impugn
ed his motives. He declared that Haw-

of all loyal Borrovinians. urged the
I prince in his statement to stand by a

For the first time it dawned upon the
prince just what a great change had

that all it would be necessary for him
