Tin- castle is comparatively modern,
with pointed turrots and fretted mlnu
rots, and, being built of while Cnrrnrn

a submerged swan Info tho clear green

well nigh tropical gardens, suggest

Generation following generation the

?i fair young maiden.
Tho moods of Baroness von T.yndal
concerning grim old Scbloss Brcltsteln
had varied many times during her
years of residence by the lake. Some
time:-! she pleased herself by reflecting
that the great man who had slighted
her lived In tess luxury than she had
attained by her excellent marriage.
Again, (he thought of (he ancient line
age of the present fount von Brcltsteln
filled her with envy, and oftener than
all the reeling that the "old grizzly
bear" could crouch in his den and
watch Bucerlngly everything which
happened at Lyndnlbcrg got upon the
lady's nerves. She could have scream
ed and shaken her list at the dark mass
of rock and stone across tho water,
but after the birthday ball ami during
the flrsl days of Leopold's visit at her
bouse she often threw a whimsical
glance at tho grim silhouette against
tin? northern sky and smiled.
"Can you see, old bear?" she would
ask gayly. "Aro you spying over there?
Do you think yourself all wise and all
powerful? l>o you see what's in my
mind now, and do you guess partly
why I've taken all this trouble? Are
you racking your brain for some way
of spoiling my little plans? But you
can't do It. you know. It's too late.
There's nothing you can do except sit
still and growl and glare at your own
c!aws, Which a woman has clipped.
How do you like the outlook, old bear?
Do you lie awake at night and study
how to save your scheme for the em
peror's marriage? All your grumpy old
life you've despised women, but now
you're beginning at last to lind out
that, powerful as you are, there are
some tilings a woman with tact and
money, nice houses and a good natured
husband can do which the highest
statesman in the laud can't undo.
How soon shall 1 make you admit that,
Thus the baroness, standing at her
drawing room window, would amuse
herself In odd moments when she was
not arranging original and elaborate
entertainments for her guests. And
she congratulated herself particularly
on having had the forethought to In
vite F.gon von Brcltsteln, the chancel
lor's half brother.
There was a harrier of thirty-six
years' difference in ngC between tho
two, and they bad never been friends
in tho true sense of tin; word, for the
old man was tempera mentally unnblo
to sympathize with the tastes or un
derstand the temptations of the young
er brother, and the younger man was
mentally unable to appreciate the qual
ities of the elder.
Nevertheless It was rumored at court
that Iron Heart had more than onco
used the gay and good looking captain
of cavalry for a catspaw In pulling
some very big and hot chestnuts out of
tho fire. At all events, "Unndsomo
Egon" (so known among his followers),
"tho chancellor's jackal" (thus nick
named by his enemies), would have
found difficult) in keeping up appear
ances without the allowance, granted
by his powerful half brother. The 111
assorted pair were often in communi
cation, and (he baroness liked to think
that news fresh from I.yndalberg must
sooner or later be wafted like a wind
blown scent of roses across tho water
to Scbloss Breltstoln.
She was still less displeased than sur
prised, therefore, when, the emperor
having beoil three days at I.yndalberg,
with two more days of his visit to run,
an urgent message arrived for Captain
von BreitStoin from his brother.
Poor old Lorenz was wrestling with
bis enemy, gout, It appeared, and wish
ed for Kgon's Immediate presence.
Such n summons could not l>o neg
lected. Bgou'S whole future depended
upon his half brother's caprice, be hint
ed to the baroness in asking lenvo to
desert her pleasant party for a few
hours. So of courso she sent tho chan
cellor her regrets, with the baron's,
nmt IOgon went off ehnnrod with a
?dly mcssago from &? omperor aa
When the captain of cavalry had net
out from Lyndalberg to Schloss Brclt
steln by tho shortest way?across ths
lake In a smart llttlo motor boat
promising to be back In time for din
ner and n concert, the baroness spent
nil her energy In getting up an Im
promptu riding party, which would
give Leopold the chance of another
teten-teto with Miss Mowbray.
Already many such chances had been
arrnngedt so cleverly as not to excite
gossip, and If tho flirtation, destined
by the hostess to disgust Leopold with
his chancellor's matrimonial projects,
did not advance by leups aud bounds
It was certainly not the fault of Baron
ess von Lyndal.
"Egon has been told to use his eyes
and ears for all they're worth at Lyn
dalherg, and now he's called upon to
hand In bis first report," Bhe satd to
herself when tho younger Von Brelt
steln was off on his mission across the
Hut for once, at least, the "chan
cellor's Jackal" was wronged by un
just suspicion. IIo arrived at Bchloss
Hreltstcln Ignorant of his brother's mo
tive in sending for him, though he
shrewdly suspected It to be something
(ptite different from the one alleged.
The chancellor was In his study, a
deep windowed tower room, with
walls book lined nearly to the cross
beamed celling. no sat reading n
budget of letters when Egon was an
nounced, and if ho were really ill he
did not betray his suffering. Tho
square face, with its beetling brows,
eyes of somber fire and forehead im
pressive as a cathedral dome, showed
no new lines graven by pain.
"Sit down, Egon," ho said abruptly,
tearing in half on envelope stamped
with tho head of Hungarla's klug.
"I'll bo ready for you In a moment."
Tho young iunn took tho least un
comfortable chair in tho room, which
from his point of vlow was to say llt
tlo In its favor, because the newest
piece of furnlturo there bad boon made
a hundred years before tho world un
derstood that lounging was not a
crime. Over the high stone mantel
hung a shield, ho brightly polished as
to fulfill the olllcc of a mirror, and
from where Egon sat, perforce upright
and rigid, he could see himself vi
gnetted In reflection.
Ho admired ills fresh color, whic h
was llko a girl's, pointed the waxed
ends of his mustache with nervous
cigarette stained fingers, and, thinking
of many agreeable things, from bac
carat to roulette, from roulette to races
and races to pretty women, he wonder
cd which he had to thank for this sum
mons to the chancellor. Unfortunately
Brother Lorenz knew everything.
One's pleasant peccadillos bussed to
his cars like files. Thero wns little
hope of deceiving him.
Egon sighed, and his eyes turned me
chanically from his own visage on
shining steel to the letter held In an
old hand so veined that it reminded the
young man of a rock netted vvlth tho
sprawling roots of ancient trees. Ho
had Just time to recognize the writing
as that of Adalbert, crown prince of
Hungnrla, whom he knew slightly,
when keen eyes curtained with furled
and wrinkled lids glanced up from tho
"It's coming." thought Egon. "What
can the old chap have found out?"
But, to his Murprl.se, tho chancellor's
first words had no connection with him
or his misdeeds.
"So our emperor is amusing himself
logon's face brightened. He could
be cunning In emergencies, but bo was
)i<>t clever, and always ho folt himself
at a disadvantage with tho old states
man. Unless he had a special favor to ;
ask he generally preferred discussing
the affairs of others with tho chancel
lor rather than allowing attention to bo
attracted to bis own. "Oh, yes," ho
answered brightly. "His majesty is
amusing himself uncommonly well. I
never saw him In as brilliant spirits.
Hut you, dear I<orenz?t?U me about
yourself. Is your gout"?
"The devil take my gout!"
Egon started. "A good thing If he
did, provided ho left you behind," he
retorted, meaning exactly tho opposite,
as he often did when trying to measure
wits with the chancellor. "Hut yon
sent for me"?
"Don't tell mo you supposed I sent
for you because I wanted consolotlon
"Xoo," laughed Egon uneasily. "I
fancied there was some other more
pressing reason. Hut I'm hound In
common courtesy to tako your sin
cerity for granted until you undeceive
"Hang common courtesy between
you nnd u?!" returned the bear. "I've
nothing to conceal. I seat for you to
tell nie what mischief that witch cat
Mechtlldo von Lyndal is plotting.
You're on tho spot. Trust you for
seeing everything that goes on?the
one thing I would trust you to do."
"Thnnks," Bald Egon.
"Don't thank me yet, however grate
ful you may be. But I don't mind
hinting that it won't be tho wor?e for
you if for once you'vo used those
fino eyes of yours to soms useful pur
Egon was genuinely astonished nt
this tum of tho converHatlon, us he bad
been carefully arming himself ngniust
a personal uttack from nny one uf sev
eral directions. Ho sat pointing the
sharp onds of his mustoebo one after
tho other and trying to remember
somo striking incident with which to
adorn a more or less accurate narra
"What would you call useful?" he
Inquired nt last.
Tho chancellor answered, but indi
rectly. "Hub tho emperor been play
ing the fool at Lyndalbcrg theso lost
"Do you want to make mo guilty of
lezo majesty?" Egon raised his eye
brows, but ho wos recovering presence
of mind. "If by playing tho fool,
though, you mean falling In love, why,
then, brother, I nhould say bo had
done llttlo else during the three days, j
and perhaps even the first of those
was not the beginning."
The chancellor gr?wled out a word
which bo would hardly hove uttered
In tho imperial presence, particularly
in the connection be suggested. "Ix?t j
mo hear exactly what has been going
on from day's end to day's end," he
Egon grew thoughtful once more.
Clearly hero was tho explanation of
tho summons. IIo was to bo lot off
easily, it appeared. But, suspenso re
lieved, be wos not ready to bo sotls
ftod with negative blessings.
"Are you B?ro it Isn't a bit like tell
ing tales out of school?" ho objected. J
"Schoolboys with empty pockets
have been known to do that," sold tho I
chancellor. "But perhaps your pockets
"They'ro In a chronic state of empti
ness," groaned Egon.
"On tho 15th day of October your
quarterly allownnco will be paid," re
marked his brother. "I would increase
tho installment by the amount of
5,000 gulden If that would make It
worth your while to talk?and forget
nothing but your scruples."
"Oh, you know I'm always delighted
to please you!" exclaimed Egon. "It's
only natural, living tho monotonous
life you do when you're not busy with
the nffolrs of state, that you should
llko to bear what goes on in the world
outside. Of course I'll gladly do my
best as a raconteur."
"My dear young man, don't He," said .
tho chancellor. "The habit is growing
on you. You llo even to yourself. By
and by you'll believe yourself, and
then all hope for your soul will be over.
What I want to know Is bow far the
emperor has gone in his Infatuation for
this English girl. I'm not afraid to
speak plainly to you, so you may safe
ly? and profitably?do the same with
me. In the first place, I'll put you nt
your case by making a humiliating
confession. The other night the wom
an Yon Lyndnl tried to 'draw me,' as
I sho would express it, on this s'uhject, !
and I'm bitterly mortified to say she I
partly succeeded. Sho suggested an i
entanglement between Leopold and
the girl. I replied that Leopold wasn't
the man to pull down n hornets' nest
of gossip around the ears of a young
woman who bad saved bis life. No
matter what his Inclinations might be,
I insisted that he would pay her no
"This thrust the fair Mecbtlldo par
ried as if repeating a mere rumor by
saying that she believed the girl was
to stay at the country bouse of some
old friend of tho emperor At the time
I attached little importance to her
chatter, believing that she merely
wished to give me a spiteful slap or
two, as is her habit when sho has the
chance. For once, though, sho has
succeeded In stealing a march upon
me, and she kept the Beeret of her plan
until too late for me to have any hope
of preventing l/copold from fulfilling
his engagement at her bouse. Aftei
lhat was safely arranged I don't doubt
sho wns overjoyed that I should guess
"Do you think that even if you'd
known sooner you could have Btoppcd
the emperor from visiting at Lyndal
bcrg?" asked Egon. "I know that you
are iron, but he is steel."
"I would have stopped him," return
ed tho chancellor. "I should have
made no bones about tho reason, for
I've found that (he best way with
Leopold is to blurt out the whole
truth and fight him?my experience
against bis will. If ndvlco and warn
ing hadn't sufficed to restrain him
from insulting the girl who Is to bo
his wife and Injuring tho reputation
of tho girl who never can l>c, I would
have devised some expedient to thwart
him for his own good. I'm not a man
to glvo up when I feel that I am
"Neither Is he," Egon added, "but
Since you seem so determined to nip
this dainty blossom of lovo in tho bud
we'll hope It's not yet too lato for a
sharp frost to blight it."
"I sent for you," said tho chancellor,
brushing away metaphor with an Im
patient gesture, "to show mo the >ro
ciKe spot on which to lay my finger."
"I'll do my best to desorvo your con
fidence," responded Egon gracefully.
"I<et mo see?where shall I begin?
Well, as you know, it's simpler for tho
emperor to soo a good deal of tho wo
man bo admires at a friend's bouse
than almost anywhere elso in his own
country. This particular woman risked
her life to savo his, and it's so noturol
for him to be gracious in return that

"It must ho stopped, and at once,"
said the chancellor.

close behind with the baroness and
overheard some joke between iho two
about a mountain and a cow. Tho ei 1

"Last night there were fireworks on

Afterward wo had an Impromptu co

"This one doesn't care a rap. She
