OSAMUND was led from th ball of Steeple across the meadow down to the quay at Steeple creek, where a great boat waited. In this the band embark ed, placing their dead and wounded, with one or two to tend them. In the fishing skiff th,at had belonged to ber father.. 1 This skiff Inwiar been" load fast to the stern ot the boat, they -push-:, ed off and In otter silence rowed down the creek till the reached the tidal stream of the Blackwater, where they turned their, bow seaward. Through the thick night and the falling snow lowly, they felt their way along. The Journey - proved dangerous, for they could scarcely see the shore. The end of It was that they grounded on i mud bank and, do what they would,';-could not thrust themselves free. But at the full tide they floated off the bank and drifted with the ebb down toward the sea. At the first break of dawn Rosamund looked up, and there, looming large in the mist, lay a galley, anchored In the mouth of the river. The band brought her aboard and led ber toward the cabin. On the poop stood a tall man who was commanding the sailors that they should get up the anchor. As she came be advanced to her, bowing and say ing: ( "Lady Rosamund thus you find me once more, who doubtless you never thought to see again." - She looked at him -In the faint light, and' her blood went cold. It was the knight Lozelle, Vhere'you are, there I am," he said, with a sneer upon his coarse, handsome face. You here?" she said. "You, a Chris tian knight; and In the pay of SalaV.n!" "In the pay of any one who leads me to you, Rosamund." Then, seeing the emir Hassan approach, he turned to gy some orders to the sailors, and she passed on to the cabin and In her agony fell upon her knees. When Rosamund rose from them she felt that the ship was moving and, de siring to look her last on Essex land, went out again upon the poop, where IXassan and Sir Hugh placed them selves, one upon either side of her. Then It was that she saw the tower of 6t Feter's-on-the-Wall and her cousUis seated on horseback In front of It. She saw Wulf spur his horse Into the sen and faintly heard his great cry of 'Fear not! We follow! We follow!" ' Now the wind caught the sail, and the ship went forward swiftly, so that so3n she lost sight of them. In her grief ik! rage Rosamund turned upon Sir lugb Lozelle and beat him with bitter irArli fill clipatilr Hofnin Iia Thftn turning, sho fled to the cabin and cast herself down ami wept till she thought that her heart would break. . Well might Rosamund weep, whose beloved 6lro was slain, who was torn from her home to find herself In thc power of a man she hated. - Yet there was hope for her. Hassan, eastern trickster as he might be, was her friend; and her uncle, Saladin, at least would never wish that she should be shamed. The ship swayed; she grew sick and faint. IIasnn3bro!Ugbtber f6od with bis own. hands, but she loathed It who only desired to die. The day turned to night, "the ulght turned to day again, and always Hassan brought her food aufd strore to comfort her, till at length she remembered no more. Then came a long, long sleep, nnd In ,the !eep dreams of her father and God win and Wulf. She awoke to feci the sun streaming rwarmly through'- the shutter of her catyin, and from that time forward,' fioatlnjfotrthe calm Mediter ranean sea. her strength began td come back agnin rapidly. Three days later she was helped to the deck, where the first man she saw was Hassan, who came forward to greet her with many eastern salutations. "I giro thanks to Allah for your snko and my own," he said "for yours that you still live whom I thought would die, and for myself that had you died your life would have been re quired at ray hands by Salah-ed-din." "If so, ho should have blamed As rnel, not you," answered Rosamund, smiling, then suddenly turned cold, for before her was Sir Hugh Lozelle, who also thanked heaven that she had re covered. She listened to him coldly, r.ml presently he went away, but soon was at her side again. Indeed, she oull never bo free of him. Alwnr K sat near, talking In his false, hate- I fnl vo ce an ! devouring her with the greedy eye3 which she could feel fixed t.Mon her face. With him often was !.I3 Ju-kal, the false palmer Nicholas. . ;t to this man she would never speak ;. word. At last she could bear It no longer, jiml when her health had returned to lier summoned Hassan to her cabin. "Tell me. prince," she said, "who rule's upon this vessel?" 'Three people," he answered, bow-ing-"tho knight Sir Hugh Lozelle, who, as a skilled navigator, is the cap tain nu l rules the sailors; I, who rule tLe fl;;ht!ng men. And you, princess, , u ho. rule ns all." :Tli-n I co:nmond that the rogue iamd Nicholas shall not be allowed to iil'prruHi me." "Yo:r orvW shall be obeyed. To tell yon the truth, lady, I hate the fellow, " ho N but a common spy." "I desire also," went on Rosamund, u speak no more with Sir Hugh Lo- "That Is more difficult." said Hatmn. mw he Is the captain whom my uas ordered iv.e to obey In all things t bavo to do with the ship." 1 huve nothing to do with the sb!p," iiwcrcd r.aniund. "and surely the : ncers of TInalbee, if so I am. may i.oo -e iier ovru companion. I wlsli t j nee more of yon and less of Sir Ilugii J.tTX'l?? ' "1 nm honored." replied Hassan, "nnd will do my best." For some days after this, although be was always watching her, Lozelle approached Rosamund but seldom, and whenever he did so he found Hassan at ber side. . At length, as It chanced, the prince was taken with a sickness from drink ing bad water which , held him to his bed for some days, and then Lozelle found bis opportunity. Rosamund strove. to keep her cabin to avoid him, but tlio Leatof the summer sun In the Mediterranean' drote her out of it to a place beneath an awning on the poop. Here Lozelle approached ber, pretend ing to bring ber food or to inquire after ber comfort, but she would answer him nothing. Then he said: "Lady, how sorely you misjudge me! What Is my crime against you? I am an Essex man of good lineage, who met you In Essex and learned to love you there. Yoar father said me nay, and you said me nay, and, stung by my disap pointment, I talked as I should not have done. For this I was called to account with Justice, and your cousin, the young knight Godwin, who was then a squire, struck me In the face. Well, he worsted and wounded me, fortune favoring him, and I departed with my vessel to the east, for that is my business, to trade between Syria and England. "Now, as It chanced, there being peace at the time between the sultan and the Christians, I visited Damascus to buy merchandise. While I was there Saladin sent for me and asked if it were true that I belonged to a part of Ensrland called Essex. When I an swered yes be asked if I knew Sir Andrew D'Arcy and his daughter. Again I said yes, whereon he told me that strange tale of your kinship to him, of which I had heard already; also a still stranger tale of some dream that he had dreamed concerning you. In the end he offered to hire my finest ship for a large sum if I would sail it to England to fetch you, but be did not tell me that any force was to be used, and I on my part said that I would lift no hand against you or your father, nor. Indeed, have I done so." "Who remembered the swords of Godwin and Wulf," broke in Rosa mund scornfully, "and preferred that braver men should face them." "Lady," answered Lozelle, coloring, "hitherto none has accused me of a lack of courage. Of your courtesy, listen, I pray you. I did wrong to en ter on this business; but, lady, It was love for you that drove me to it." He looked about him cautiously. "Wtthin a week from now, If all goes well, we cast' anchor at Llmazol, in Cyprus, to take In food and water be fore we run to a secret port near An tioch, whence you are to be taken over land to Damascus, avoiding all. cities of the Franks. Now, the Emperor Isaac of Cyprus is my friend, and over him Saladin has no power. Once in his court you would be safe until such time as you found epportunity to return to England. This, then, Is my plan that you should escape from the ship at night, as I can arrange." "And what is your payment," she asked, "who are a merchant knight?" "My payment, lady, is yourself. In Cyprus we will be wed. Oh, think be fore you answer! At Damascus many dangers nwalt you. With me you will find safety and a Christian husband who loves you well." "Have done," she said coldly. "Soon er will I trust myself to an honest Sar acen than to you. Yes, sooner would I take death for my lord than you, for your own base ends devised the plot that brought my father to his murder and me to slavery. Have done, I say, and never dare again to speak of love to me." And, rising, she walked to her cabin. But Lozelle, looking after her, mut tered to himself, "Nay, fair lady, I have but begun, nor will I forget your bit ter words, for which you shall pay the merchant knight In kisses." From her cabin Rosamund sent a message to Hassan. He came, still pale with Illness, nnd asked her will, whereon she told him what had passed between Lozelle and herself, demand ing his protection against this man. "Yonder he stands," said Hassan, "alone. Will you come with me and speak to him?" She bowed her head, and he led her to the poop. ' "Sir Captain," he began, addressing Lozelle, "the princess here tells me a strange story that you have dared to offer your love to her, a niece of Salah-ed-dln." "What of it. Sir Saracen?" nnswered Lozelle insolently. "Is not a Christian knight fit mate for the blood of an east ern chief?" "You," answered Hassan, with rage In his low voice "you, huckstering thief and renegade, who swear by Mo hammed in Damascus and by your prophet Jesus in England! You her fit mate? Why. were It not that you must guide this ship and that my master bade me not to quarrel with you till your task was done I would behead you now!" And as he spoke he grip ped the handle of his scimiter. Lozelle quailed before his fierce eyes, for well he knew Hassan and knew also that If it came to fighting bts sail ors were no match for the emir and his Saracens. "Before Salah-ed-dln you shall an swer for your treachery f added Has san. "Of what, then, am I a censed," asked Lozelle "of loving the Lady Ros amund, as do all men.- perhaps your self, old and withered as you are, among them?" "Aye. and for that crime I will repay yon. old and withered as I am, Sir Ren egade! Bat with Salah-ed-din you have another score to settle that by promis ing her escnre you tried to seduce her from this ship." "Were this true." replied lozelle, "thft sultan might have canse of com print against me, but It Is not true.

Rosamund prayed me to do this deed. She said that if I did bat save ber from you Saracens I should not go without my reward, since she would wed me. Again, although it cost me sere, I an swered that it might not be, but when once I had brought my ship to la ad I was her true Irnigbt and. being freed of my bath, would do my best to save Ler."

ROOSEVELT IS HIGHLY PLEASED mdiana Republican Platform Satisfactory to the Executive. HEMENWAY IS OPTIMISTIC Says "Widespread Distention" Exists Only in Imagination The State is in Good Condition, , ' Palladium Special. Indianapolis, April 15. A special dispatch to the Star from Washington says: President Roosevelt is highly' pleas ed with the platform adopted by the Indiana Republican State conyention. The President keeps a sharp lookout on what is going on in the political world and the resolutions of the Indi ir.a Republicans suit him to a nicety This was the news which Senator Hemenway brought from the White House after a visit with the President today. The junior Senator, who left Wash ington a pessimist regarding political conditions in Indiana, returned an op timist. He says that the "widespread dissentlon" alleged to be tearing the Republican party in Indiana asunder exists only in the Imagination. "I found the State In a great deal better shape than I thought." said Senator Hemenway. "The Republi cans are enthusiastic. They believe that they are going to win hands down, as they have in the last ten years, and when they feel that way, victory Is certain. From what I could see there Is absolutely no danger. Ev erybody is working In perfect har mony. The course of Governor Hanly in dismissing Auditor Sherrick and Secretary of State Storms from office has been approved. The outlook in the conpresslonal campaign Is just as en couraging as It is for State -officers. I see no reason to think the Demo crats will make gains In this direc tion." Senator Hemenway called at the Whit House to tell the President of conditions as he observed them In In diana. The. President was visibly gratified when Mr. Hemenway told him how heartily every mention of his name was applauded In the State convention. . .

By the acceptance of the skull of s savage from a wild Borneo tribal king Dr. W. L. E. Luering Is pledged upoc his honor to return to the land of th savage and resume his missionary work or send a substitute. Dr. Luer Ing. a Methodist missionary, has beer among the cannibals of north Bornec for the past ten months, and, being called to a new field, he notified the chief of the village. The chief was very sorry to part with Dr. Luering. not that he bad intentions of reserving him for a feast but because he had become a convert to the "white man't religion. When the missionary stated that II he did not return he would see tha4 another missionary was sent in his Often Does, "He is so bash ful we thought he never would get married.
