Ito returned nt once to tlio railway
Tlio telegram was still In the hands j
of tho station master, to whose can' it
had been addressed. This dlllgont per
son professed to hnvo sent * man
through tho Orient oxpn-ss from end
to end calling for Miss Helen Mow
bray, but calling In vain. Ho bad no
theory more plnuslblo to offer than
that the lad.V had not started from
Kronburg or else that sho bod left tho
train at Fol garde before her name had
boon cried. Hut certainly sho would
not hnvo hnd time to go far If she
were a through passenger, for the
Orient express stopped Put ten min
utes at Felgardo.
It Avns evident throughout the short
conversation that tho excellent ofllctnl
was on pins and needles. Struck by
the emperor's features, which lie bad
no often Keen In painting and piioto
graph, It still seemed impossible that
the greatest man In Minolta could bn
traveling thus about the country In or
dinary morning dross and unattended.
Sure nt one Instant that be must be
talking with the emperor, sure the next
Hint be had been deceived by n like
ness, the poor fellow struggled against
his confusion in a way that would
have amused Leopold in a different
With a manner that essayed l!ie dif
ferent mean between rovoronce ?lue to
royalty ami common everyday polite
ness, good enough for tin ordinary gen
tleman, the station master volunteered
to ascertain whether the ladies de
scribed bad gone out and given up
their tickets. A few minutes of sus
pense dragged on. Then came tlio
news that no such persons had passed.
Here was a stumbling block. Since
Helen Mowbray and her mother had
apparently not traveled by tho orient
express, where had they gone on leav
ing the hotol nt Kronburg? Had they,
after all, misled BoronesH von Lyndal
as to their Intentions for the purpose
of blinding the emperor, or hnd they
simply changed their minds nt tho last
minute, as women may? Could it bo
posslblo that they had changed thorn
so completely ns to return to Sehloss
Lyndnlbcrg, or had they chosen to van
ish mysteriously through some back
door out of Rhnotla, leaving no trace
which even a lover could find?
Leopold could not help recalling the
Chancellor's revelations, but dismissed
them ns soon ns they hnd crept Into Ids
brain. No mutter where tho clew to
the tangle might He, he told himself
that it was not In any net of which
Helen Mowbray need bo ashamed.
He could think of nothing more to do
but to g<> dismally buck to Kronburg
und ?walt developments or, rather, to
stir them up by every means in his
power. This was the course he finally
chose, and Just ns he was about to
act upon his decision he remembered
his carelessly given promise to count
There was a telephone In the railway
station at Eelgs**dc, and Leopold him
self called up .; chancellor at Kron
"My friends nie not here. I'm start

either by the next train or by special,"
he announced after a faraway squeak
hnd signified Count von Hrcltstctn'S
presence at Hub Other end. "l don't see
why you wish to know, but 1 would not
break my promise; Hint's nil. Goodby.
Eh? What was that you Bald?"
"I have it-curious piece of news,
for you," canto over the wire In the
chancellor's voice. "It's about the?
"What is It?" asked Leopold.
"I hinted that i hnd more informa

Hut I am In n different position now.

"They gave out that they were leav

"Thanks. That's exactly What I want

"You renn . er a certain person
whose name can't bo mentioned over
tho telephone buying a hunting lodge
near the village of InSOlOdon, hi the
Buchenwald, hist year?"
"Yes; I remember very well. But
what has that to do with my friends?"
"Tho younger lady tins gone there
without her mother, who remntns In
Kronburg with the companion, it
seems that the present owner of Hie
hunting lodge has been acquainted with

"Will yon drive out to the lodge to

against the one perfect girl on eartu.

ing it was for "Khuetla's good."
Telling himself that these tilings
were truths, Leopold hurried away to
Inquire for the next train back to
Kronburg. There would not l>e anoth
er for three hours, he found, and as
nothing could have induced him to
wall throe hours, or even two, he or
deivd a special. There was a raging
tiger In his breaHt which would uot
(ease to tear him uutll he had seen
Helen Mowbray, laid his empire at her
feet, received hor answer and, through
It, punished the chancellor.
The special, he was told, could be
ready In lesa than an hour. Tho Jour
noj to Kronburg would occupy nearly
three more, and It would be close upon
0 beforo he could start with fount
von Breltstein for the hunting lodge
which he had promised to visit. Hut
the chancellor would doubtless have
his electric carriage ready for tho de
sire.I expedition, and they could reach
their destination In twenty minutes.
This was uot too long a time to give
up to proving tho old man wrong, for
to do this, not to find Helen Mowbray,
was Leopold's motlvo lu conseutlng.
Bbo would not t>o tlie-ro, and the em

possibly be Inflicted on tho proud and
opinionated old man.
A Traveling; Man's Experience.
"I must tell you my experience on
an Hast bound 0. R. & N. R. R. train
from Pondleton to Le Grande, Ore.,"
writes Sam A. Garbcr, a well known
traveling man. "I was in the smoking
department with some other traveling
mon w hen one of them went out into
the coach and came back and said,
'There is a woman sick unto death in
the car.' I at once got up and went
out, found her very ill with cramp
colic, her hands and arms were drawn
up so you could not straighten them
and with a death like look on her face.
Two or three ladies were working with
her and giving her whiskey. I went to
my suit case and got my bottle of Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy (I never travel without it),
ran to the water tank, put a double dose
of the medicine in the glass, poured
some water into it and stirred it with a
pencil, then I had quite a time to get
the ladies to let me give it to her, but
I succeeded. I could at once see the
0 free I and I worked with her, rubbing
her bands, and in twenty minutes I gave
her another dose. By this time we
were almost into Le Grande, where I
was to leave the train. I gave the bot
tle to tin; husband to be used in cose
another ?lose should be needed, but by
ihe linn the train ran into Le Grande
she was all right and I received the
thanks of every passenger in the car."

Attends Temperance R;ilty and Delivers
Last Friday lion. C. C. Fenlherstono
addressed a temperance rally in Saluda,

His address was one of the strongest
ever heard here and has elicited much
Ho stated that for years those who
were opposed to the use of intoxicants
advocated temperance only, but now
after seeing that the only way to treat
the evil is to cut it out root and branch,
they are working for prohibition. He
defied any man to show where- liquor
ever elevated man or made him belter.
It was a question of right and wrong.
The moral phase of the question could
not be eliminated, for it was a matter
that struck deep in man's moral nature.
He next showed that prohibition laws
could be as well ?Miforced as any other
law. No sane man would contend that
a prohibition law could he enforced per
fectly no more than could any law
passed and enforced by finite minds be
The latter part of his address was
devoted to showing that those who fa
vored the sale of intoxicants did not
hesitate lo work for men who repre
sented their views, while too many
church people were content with sing
ing and praying about it and going no
further. No man could refuse to do his
duty as a citizen in matters political no
more than he could fail lo do it in any
other walk of life.
The statement so often heard that
Christian people had no business taking
active part in politics was a fabrication
of the devil and kept alive by those
] whose political opinions on certain is
I sues were in contrast lo the opinions of
those who desired to see mankind ele
vated and bettered, and who wished to
see those things which drag down
driven from the State.
"EveryChristian," said he, "should
be a most active politician, for how can
you expect to see politics, which it is
claimed are so dirty, purified if the
Christian people of South Carolina do
not enter actively into them and purify
Many who heard tin- address make

It's a pity when sick ones drug the

arc instead crying out for help. This
explains why Dr. Shoop's Restorative
is promptly helping Stomach, Heart
