"Of course, your hightiess,"
said Baldos, deep 'apology 'In
his voice. "lHavone is woefully
misinformed. He is.vhonest -in thisbe- .

motives. How he could llave been so
blind as to confound you wIth that
frisky American girl-but I beg your
pardon. She Is to be your guest. A
thousand pardons, your highness."
Sh'e had been struck dumb by the
wording of the note, but his apparently
sincere apology for his friend set her
every emotion into play once more.
While lie wias speaking her wits were
forming themselves for conflict. She
opened the campaIgn with a bold at
tack. "You-you believe me to be the
princess, sure enough. don't you?"
But with all her bravery she was not
able to look him in the face.
"How enn you doubt it, your high

present capaelty if I believed you to be
any one else?" k .

"But I've never said that I'was-was
any one's wife."
There was a piteous appeal in her
voice, and lhe was not slow to notice it
and rejoice. Then his heart smote him.
"But wvhat is to become of mec if you
are not the princess?" ho asked after
a long pause. "I can no- longer serve
you. This is my last day in the castle

the tears of mortification.
"Miss Calhoun," he said, his manner
