UNDXU MOON AHU MONASTERY.
FOli two days Lorry lived through
Intermittent stngos of delight
und despondency. His recovery
fron? tho effects of the blow
administered by Dannox was nnturnlly
rapid, his strong young constitution
coming to tho rescue bravely. Ho saw
L.uch of the princess, more of the
Countess Dagmar, und made the ac
quaintance of many lords and ladies
for whom he cared but little except
when they chose to talk of their girlish
ruler. The atmosphere of the castlo
was laden with a depression that could
not he overcome by an assimilated
Tho princess could not hide tho trou
ble that had sprung up in her eyes.
Her laugh, her gay conversation, her
rare composure and gentle hauteur
were powerless to drive away tho
haunted, worried gleam in those ex
pressive eyes of blue. Lorry had it on
his tongue's end a dozen times during
the next day or so nftor tho count's
narrative to question her about tho
condition of a (fairs as they appeared
The Countess Dagmar, whet) not
monopolized by the very progressive or
aggressive A punish, unfolded to Lorry
certain pages in the personal history of
the princess, and ho, of course, en
couraged her confidential humor, al
though there was nothing encouraging
in It for him.
Down by the great fountain, while
tho soldiers were on parade, the fair
but volatile countess unfolded to Lorry
a story that wrenched his heart so
savagely that anger, resentment, help
lessness and love oozed forth and en
veloped him In a multitude of emotions
that would not disperse.
"She will not mind my telling you,
because she considers you the very
best of men, Mr. Lorry," said the count
ess, who had learned her English un
tler the Princess Yetlve's tutor.
It seems, according to tho very truth
ful account given by tho lady, that the
princess had it in her power to save
Graustark from disgrace and practical
destruction. The Prince of Axphaln's
?on, Lorenz, was deeply enamored of
Ler, infatuated by her marvelous beau
ty nnd accomplishments, lie had per
suaded his father to consider a matri
monial alliance with her to he one of
great value to Axphaln. The old
prince, therefore, some months before
the arrival of the Americans in Grnu
stark sent to the princess a substitute
ultimatum, couched In terms so polite
nnd conciliatory that there could be no
mistaking his sincerity, lie agreed to
give Grnustark a new lease of life, as
It were, by extending the Of teen years
or, in other words, to grant the con
quered an additional ten years In
which to pay off the obligations im
posed by the treaty. He furthermore
offered a considerable reduction In the
rate of Interest for tho next ton years.
But he had a condition attached to this
good nnd grnclons proposition - the inar
rlago of (Jraust.irk's sovereign. His
nmbns8ador set forth the advantages
of such nn alliance, nnd departed with
n messngo that the matter should have
most serious consideration.
The oid prince's proposition was a
blow to the princess, who was placed
In a trying position. By sacrificing
herself she could save her country, hut
In so doing her life Avas to be plunged
into interminable darkness. She did
not love nor did she respect Lorenz,
who wns not favorably supplied with
Tho proposition was laid before the
cnblnot nnd the nobility by the princess
herself, who said that she would be
guided ? by any decision they might
reach. The counselors to a man re
fused to sacrifice their girlish ruler, and
tho people vociferously ratified the res
olution. Hut tho princess would not nl
low them to send an answer to Ax
phaln until sho could see a way clear
to save her people in some other man
ner. An embassy was sent to tho Prince
of Dnwsbcrgen. Ills domain touched
Grnustark on tho south, and he ruled
a wild, turbulent class of mountaineers
and herdsmen. This embassy sought
to secure an Indorsement of tho loan
from Prince Gabriel sufllcfont to meet
the coming crisis. Gabriel, himself
smitten by the charms of the princess,
at once offered himself lu marriage,
agreeing to advance, in case she ac
cepted him, 20,000,000 gavvos at a rath
er high rate of Interest for fifteen years.
His love for her was so great that he
would pawn the entire principality foi
nn answer that would mako him the
happiest man on earth. Now, the trou
bled princess nbhorrcd Gabriel. Of the
two, Lorenz, was much to be preferred.
Gabriel flew into n rngo upon tho re
ceipt of this rebuff nnd openly nvowed
bis intention to make her suffer. Ills
Infatuation became a mania, nnd up to
the very day on which the countess
told tho story ho persisted in bis ap
peals to the princess. In person lie had
gone to her to plead bis guilt on bis
knees, groveling at her feet. Ho went
so far as to exclaim madly in the pres
ence of the alarmed hut relentless ob
ject of his love that ho would win her
or turn tho whole earth into everything
Bo it was that the Princosu of Grnu
stark, erstwhile Miss Guggenslockvr,
was being dragged through the most
anhnppy affairs that over beset a sov

heart. She whs In love, but with no
royal prince! Of this, however, the
countess knew nothing, so Lorry had
one great secret to cherish alone.
"Has she chosen the course she will
pursue?" asked Lorry as the countess
concluded her story. Ills face was
"She cannot decide. Wo have wept
together over this dreadful, this horri
ble thing. You do not know what It
means to all of us, Mr. Lorry. We
love her, and there Is not one in our
land who would sacrifice her to save
this territory. As for Gabriel, Grau
ste rk would kill her before she should
go to him. Still she cannot let herself
sacrifice those northern subjects when
by a single act she can save them. You
see, the princess hns not forgotten
that her father brought this war upon
the people, and she feels It her duty to
pay the penalty of his error, whatever
"Is there no other to whom she can
turn -no other course?" asked Lorry.
"There is none who would assist us,
bankrupt as we are. There is a ques
tion I want to ask, Mr. Lorry- Please
look at me. Do not staro at tho foun
tain all the time. Why have you come
to Edelweiss?" She asked the ques
tion so boldly that his startled embar
rassment was an unspoken confession.
He calmed himself und hesitated long
before answering, weighing his reply.
She sat close beside him, her clear
gray eyes reading him like a hook.
"I came to see a Miss Guggenslock
er," ho answered at last.
"For what purpose? There must
have been an urgent cause to bring
you so far. You are not an American
"I had intended to nsk her to bo my
wife," he said, knowing that secrecy
was useless and seeing a faint hope.
"You did not find Miss Guggenslock
"No; I have not found her."
"And are you going homo disappoint

There was a long pause.
"May I ask when you expect to leave
Graustark?" she asked somewhat tim
"Why do you wish to know?" he
asked in turn.
"Because I know how hopeless your
quest has been. You hnvo found Miss
Guggenslocker, but she Is held bchlud
a wall so strong and Impregnable that
you cannot reach her with the question
you camo to ask. You have come to
that wall, and now you must turn back.
I have asked how soon?"
"Not until your princess bids me take
up my load and go. You see, my lady,
I love to sit beneath the shadow of the
wall you describe. It will require a
royal edict to compel me to abandon
"You cannot expect tho princess to
drive you from her country, you who
have done so much for her. You must
go, Mr. Lorry, without her bidding."
"Yes, for your presence outside that
wall may make the Imprisonment nil
the more unendurable for tho one your
love cannot reach. Do you understand
"Una the one behind the wall In
structed you to say this to me?" ho
"She has not. I do not know her

woman's foresight. If you wish to be
kind and good to her, go."
"I cannot!" he exclaimed, his pent
feelings bursting forth. "I cannot go!"
"You will not bo so selfish and so
cruel as to increase tho horror of the
wreck that is sure to come," she said,
"You know, countess, of the life sav
ing crews who draw from the wrecks
of ships lives that were hopelessly lost.
There Is to bo a wreck here. Is there
to be a life saver? When tho night Is

ho asked, smiling, suddenly calm and
"Willingly, for I love the one who Is

Ho thought long and Intently over
what she had said as he smoked his ci
gar on the grent balcony that night.
He saw In one moment the vast chasm
between tho man and the princess; in
the next he laughed nt tho puny space.
Down on the promenade he could see
the figures of men und women stroll
ing In the moonlight. To his cars came
tho occasional laugh of n man, the sil
very gurgle of n woman. The royal
military baud was playing In the stand
near the edge of tho great circle. There
were gayely, comfort, charm and secu
rity about everything that caino to his
eyes and ears Where was she? He
had seen her lu the afternoon and had
talked with her, hndjfwalked with her.
Their conversation bad been bright, but
of the commonplace kind. She had
said nothing to indicate that she re
membered tbe hour spent beside his
couch a day or ho before; ho had ut
tered none of the words that struggled
to rush from his lips?tho questions, the
pleadings, the vows. Where was she
now? Not In that gay crowd below,
for ho had scanned every figure with
the hawk's eye; closeted again, no
doubt, with her ministers, wearying
her tired brain, her bravo heart into
fatigue without rest.
Her court still trembled with the ex
citement of tho daring attempt of tho
abductors and their swift punishment.
Functionaries flocked to Edelweiss to
Impure after tho welfaro of tho prin
cess, and indignation was at tho high
cat pitch. There wero theories innu
merable as to thp Identity of the arch
conspirator. Ha ion Dnngloss was at
sea completely. He cursed himself
and everybody olso for the hasty and
HI timed execution of tho hirelings. It
was quite evident that tho buzzing
wonder and Intense feeling of the peo
ple bad lor the moment driven out all
j thought of tho coming day of judg
ment and its hitter atouement for nil
Graustark. Today the castle was full
of tho nobility, drawn to Its walls by
tho news that had startled them be
yond all expression. The police were
at work, the military trembled with
rage, the people clamored for the ap
prehension of the man who had been
the instigator of this audacity. Tho
genornl belief was that suiuu brigand
chief from the south bud planned tho
great theft for the purpose of securing
a fabulous ransom. Greufall Lorry
hud an astonishing theory In his mind,
und the inoro ho thought it over the
more ilrmly It was Imbedded.
The warm, blue colls from the cigar
wafted away Into the uight, carrying
with them a myriad of tangled thoughts
?of her, of Axpbaln, of the abductor,
of himself, of everything. A light step
on the stone lloor of tho shadowy bal
cony attracted his attention. He turn
ed his head and saw the Princess Ye
tive. She was walking slowly toward
the balustrade, not aware of his pres
ence. There was no covering for the
dark hair, no wrap about tho whlto
sin udders. She wore nn exquisite gown
of white, shimmering with tho reflec
tions from the moon that scaled the
mountain top. She stood at tho balus
trade, her hands clasping a bouquet of
red roses, her chlu lifted, her eyes gaz
ing toward the mountain's crest, tho
prettiest picture ho had over seen. The
strange dizziness of love ovorpowered
him. How long he reveled in the glory
of the picture ho knew not, for it was
as If he looked from a dream. At last
ho saw her look down upon tho roses,
lift them slowly and drop them over
the rail. They fell to tho ground be
low. He thought ho understood?tho
gift of u prince despised.
They were not twenty feet npart. Ho
advanced to her side, his hat in one
hand, his stick?tho one that felled the
Viennese?trembling in the other.
"I did not know you wero here," she
exclaimed in half frightened amaze
ment. "I left my ladies inside."
Ho was standing beside her, looking
down Into the eyes.
"And I nm richer because of your ig
uornnce," ho sold softly. "I have seen
a picture that shall never leave my
memory?never! Its beauty enthralled,
enraptured. Then I saw the drama of
the roses. Ah, your highness, tho
crown is not always a mask."
"Tho ros. :? wore?wero of no conse

"I have heard how you stand be
tween two suitors and that wretched
treaty. My heart has ached to tell you
how I pity you."
"It is not pity I need, but courage.
Pity will not aid me in my duty, Mr.

crushed him with the real awakening
of helplessness. lie stood beside her,
looking up at tho cold monastery,
strangely conscious that she was gax
ing toward the same dizzy height.
"It looks so peaceful up there," she
said at last.
"But so cold and cheerless," ho add
ed* drearily. There was another long
silence in which two hearts communed
through the medium of that faraway
sentinel. "They have not discovered n

bent on the home of tho monks.
"Your highness, I have a theory, n
bold nnd perhaps a criminal theory, but
you will allow me to tell you why I am
possessed 01 it. I am aware that there

She looked at him Instantly, her eyes
wide with growing comprehension, tho
solution to the mystery darting into her
mind like a flash.
"You mean"? she began, stopping as
If afraid to voice the suspicion.
"That Prime Gabriel Is the man
who bought your guards and hired
Geddos and (istroni to carry you to the
place where he could own you, whether
you would or no," said Lorry.
"But he could never have forced me
to marry him, and I should sooner or
later have exposed him," she whisper
ed nrgumontntlvcly. "lie could not ex

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
It isn't tho
kind of food you eat, but rather what
your stomach fails to digost, that gives you indigestion. Lard
is a foe to digestion. If you had tho stomach of an ostrich
you could hardly withstand the ravages of lard-soaked pastry. You
havo probably found this out and already given up the eating of pastry.
'Tis wholly unnecessary! Anyone can oat and digest food cooked with
Cottolene?the perfect shortening. It is a pure vegetable product, made
fiom the best beef suot and choicest vegetable oil. It is neutral in
taste and odor ; it is Nature's Gift from the Sunny South.
Cottolene is never sold in bulk. It is put up in carefully scaled
tin pails. And right hero is another advantage. When you buy lard
you have no protection as to quality?you simply know you are getting
LARD?never mind the grade, it's just L-A-R-D. On the other hand,
every pail of Cottoleno is uniform?the product is guaranteed. You take
no chances whatever.
In tho face of these facts just ask yourself if you can afford to use
hog lard when you can get puro, healthful, nutritious Cottolene.
USE \fo LESS. Cottolene being richer than either lard or cooking
butter, one-third less is required.
