yet of a brilliant pallor, which was
clear and fresh and carried with it
idl a suggestion of purity and inno
nce that one would not wish its
aiden grace to be marred by an in
usion of color. In her whole expres-
on mere was sometnmg quiet ami
hbdued, which was accentuated by
r simple dress of black taffeta. Such
as Adele Catinat, the only daughter
f the famous Huguenot cloth mer-Lant.
But If her dress was somber it was
oned for by the magnificence of her
tmnanion. He was a man who might
bve been ten years her senior, with a
en soldier face, small well marked
latures, a carefully trimmed black
ustacbe and a dark hazel eye which
lght harden to command a man or
ften to supplicate a woman and be
iccessful at either. Any Frenchman

-earanc?, was so unusual that, a
.up of townsfolk had already assem
round him, staring with open
I uth at his horse and himself. A
Titered gun with an extremely long
Mrel.was fastened by the stock to
stirryp, while the muzzle stuck up
f the air behind him. The rider.
"Nay, he is from the Cnglisb prov
inces, Amory. Bijt he speaks our

"And his name?"
"Is Amos Amos ah, those names!
Ye3, Green, that was It, Amos Green.
His father and mine have done much
trade together, and now his son, who,
as I understand, has lived ever, in the
woods, is sent here to see something of
men and cities."
The stranger entered and, having
bowed to Adele, said to her compan
ion, "Do I speak with my father's
friend, M. Catinat?"
"No, monsieur," said the guardsman
from the staircase, "my uncle is out,
but I am Captain de Catinat. at your
nervice, and here Is Mile. Catinat, who
is your hostess."
T am sorry my father is not here to
welcome you, monsieur," she said; "but
I do so very heartily in his place. Your
room is above. Pierre will show it to
you, if you wish."
"My room? For what?"
"Why, monsieur, to sleep in."
"And must I sleep in a room?"
De Catinat laugced at the gloomy
face of the American. "You shall not
sleep there If you do not wish," said
he.
The other brightened at once, and
stepped across to the farther window,
which looked down upon the courtyard.
"Ah!"-he cried. There Is a beech tree
there, mademoiselle, and if I might
take my blanket out yonder I should
like it better than any room."
"You are not from a town, then?"
said De Catinat."
"My father lives In New York, two
doors from the house of Peter Stuy
vesant, of whom you must have heard.
He Is a very hardy man and he can
do It, but I even a few days of Albany
or Schenectady are enough for me. My
life has been in the woods."
T am sure that my father would
wish you to sleep where you like and;
to do what you like. j
"I thank you, mademoiselle. Then I,

shall groom my horse."
"I will come with you," said De Cati
nat, "for I would have a word with
you. Until tomorrow, then, Adele, fare
well!" The two young men passed down
stairs together, and the guardsman fol
lowed the American out into the yard.
"You have had a long Journey," he
said. "Are you tired?"
No; I am seldom tired."
"Remain with the lady, then, until
her father comes back. I have to ga
and she might need a protector." '

"But if the other should come, as is
possible enough the other, you under
stand me, the former"
"Mme. de Montespan."
"Ah, that soldierly tongue of yours,
captain! Should she come, I say, you
will gently bar her way, with courteous
words, you understand, but on no ac
count is she to be permitted to enter
the royal room."
"Very good, Bontems."
"And now we have but three min
utes." He strode through the rapidly
increasing group of people In the cor
ridor with an air of proud humility, as
befitted a man who, if he was a valet,
was at least the king of valets by be
ing the valet of the king. Close by the
door stood a line of footmen resplen
dent in their powdered wigs, red plush
coats and silver shoulder knots. He
turned tne handle once more and slip
ped Into the darkened room.
It was a large, square apartment,
with two high windows upon the fur
ther side, curtained across with price
less velvet hangings. In one corner a
narrow couch with a rug thrown across
It showed where the faithful Bontems
had spent the night.
In the very center of the chamber
there stood a large four post bed, with
men wny not proceea .' it is tnree
minutes after the accustomed time. To
work, sir; and you. Bontems, giv
word for the grand lever."
It was obvious that the king was not
la a very good humor that morning.
He darted little quick questioning
glances at his brother and at his sons,
but whatever complaint or sarcasm
may have trembled upon his lips was
effectually stifled by De St. Quentin's
ministrations. With the nonchalance
born of long custom, the official cov
ered the royal chin with soap, drew
the razor swiftly round it and sponged
over the surface with spirits of wine.
A nobleman then helped to draw on the
king's black velvet haut-de-chausses, a
second assisted In arranging them,
while a third drew the nightgown over
the shoulders and handed the royal
shirt, which had been warming before
the fire. His diamond buckled shoes,
his gaiters and his scarlet inner vest
were successively fastened by noble
courtiers, each keenly Jealous of his
own privilege, and over the vest was
placed the blue ribbon with the cross
of the Holy Ghost in diamonds, and
that of St. Louis tied with red. The
black undercoat was drawn on, the
cravat of rich lace adjusted, the loose
overcoat secured, two handkerchiefs of
curtains of Gobelin tapestry looped! costly point carried forward upon an

was the morning after the
guardsman had returned to his
duties. Eight o'clock bad struck
on the great clock of Versailles,
and it was almost time for the mon
arch to rise. Servants, with clothes
thrown over their arms, bustled down
the passage which led to the ante
chamber. The young officer, who had ;
been looking wistfully out of the win
dow at some courtiers who were laugh
ing and chatting on the terraces, turn
ed sharply upon his heel and strode
over to the white and gold door of the
royal bedroom.
He had hardly taken his stand there
before the handle was very gently
turned from within, the door revolved
noiselessly upon its hinges and a man
slid silently through the aperture, clos
ing it again behind him.
As Bontems passed noiselessly across
the room, his feet sinking Into the
mosslike carpet, there was the heavy,
close smell of sleep In the air, and he
could hear the long, thin breathing of
the sleeper. He passed through the
opening In the rails and stood, watch
In hand, waiting for the exact Instant
when the iron routine of the court de
manded that the monarch should be
roused. Beneath him, from under the
costly green coverlet of oriental silk,
half buried in the fluffy Valenciennes
lace which edged the pillow, there pro
truded a round black bristle of close
cropped hair, with the profile of a curv
ing nose and petulant lip outlined
against the white background. The
valet snapped his watch and bent over
the sleeper.
"I have the honor to inform your
majesty that It is half past 8." said be.
"Ah!" The king slowly opened his
large dark brown eyes, made the sign
of the cross and kissed a little dark
reliquary which he drew from under
his nightdress. Then he sat up in bed.
"Did you give my orders to the offi
cer of the guard, Bontems?" he asked.
"Yes, sire."
"Who is on duty?"
"Major de Brissac at the main guard
and Captain de Catinat in the cor
ridor." "De Catinat! Ah, the young man who
stopped my horse at Fontainebleau. I
remember him. You may give the sig
nal, Bqntems."
The chief valet walked swiftly across
to the door and threw it open. In
rushed the officer of the ovens and the
four red coated, white wigged foot
men, ready handed, silent footed, each
Intent upon his own duties. The one
seized upon . Bontems rug and couch
and ia an instant had whipped them
off into an antechamber, another had
carried away . the 6llver taper stand,
while a third drew back the great cur
tains of stamped velvet and let a flood
of light Into the apartment.
They were hardly gone before a more
august group entered the bedchamber.
Two walked together in front, the one'i
a youth little over twenty years of age,
middle sized, inclining to stoutness,
with a slow, pompous bearing, a well
turned leg and a face which was come
ly enough In a masklike fashion, but
which was devoid of any shadow of
expression except perhaps of an occa
sional lurking gleam of mischievous
humor. His companion was a man ot
forty, swarthy, dignified and solemn.
As the pair faced the king there was
sufficient resemblance between the
three fiees to show that they were of
one blood and to enable a stranger to
guess that the older was monsieur, the
younger brother of the king, while the
other was Louis the Dauphin, his only
legitimate child.
' Behind the king's son and the king's
brother there entered a little group of
notables and of officials whom duty had
called to this daily ceremony. There
were the grand master of the robes, the
first lord of the bedchamber, the Due
du Maine, a pale youth clad in black
velvet, limping heavily with his left
leg, and his little brother, the young
Comte de Toulouse, both of them the
illegitimate sons of Mme. de Montes
pan and the king. Such were the par
takers in the family entry, the highest
honor which the court of France ceuld
aspire to.
Bontems had poured on the king's
hands a few drops of spirits of wine,
catching them again in a silver dish;
and the first lord of the bedchamber
had presented the bowl of holy water,
with which he made the sign of the
cross, muttering to himself the short
office of the Holy Ghost. Then, with
a nod to his brother and a short word
of greeting to the Dauphin and to the
"ITnah'" lllirl ha with Vila Ann-ai n.
his thin, precise li'ps, while his whole! J?uc f" Maine, he swung his legs over
clean shaven face and high arched
ft
brows were an entreaty and a warning.
"The king still sleeps."
The words were whispered from one
to another among the group who had
assembled outside the door. The speak
er, who was M. Bontems, head valet-de-chambre,
gave a sign to the officer of
the guard and led him Into the window
alcove from which he had lately come.
"Good morning. Captain de Catinat.
Who commands at the main guard?"
"Major de Brissac."
"And you will be here?"
"For four hours I attend the king."
"Very good. He gave me some in
struction for the officer of the guard.
He bade me to say that M. de Vivonne
was not to be admitted to the grand
lever. You are to tell him so."
' "I shall do so.!
"Then, should a note come from her
you understand me, the new one"
"Mme. de Mala tenon?"
"Precisely. But It ia more discreet
not to mention names. Should she send
a note, you will take it and deliver it

silken nightdress, his little white feet
dangling from beneath It, a perilous
position for any man to assume were
it not that he bad so heartfelt a sense
of his own dignity that he could not
realize that under any circumstances
It might be compromised in the eyes of
others. So he sat, the master of France
and yet the slave to every puff of wind,
for a wandering draft had set him shiv
ering and shaking. 31. de St. Quentln,
the noble barber, flung a purple dress
ing gown overjhe royal shoulders and
placed a long, many curled court wig
upon his head, while Bontems drew on
his red stockings and laid before him
Lis slippers of embroidered velvet. The
monarch thrust his feet Into them, tied
his dressing gown and passed out to
the fireplace, where he settled, himself
down in his easy chair, holding out his
thin, delicate bands toward the blazing
logs, while the others, stood round in
a semicircle, waiting for the grand
lever which was to follow.
M. de St. Quentin, is this not our
shaving morning?'' said the king.

of the day.
During the half hour or so which had
been occupied In this manner there
had been a constant opening and clos
ing of the chamber door, and a mutter
ing of names from the captain of the
guard to the attendant In charge, and
from the attendant in charge to the
first gentleman of the chamber, ending
always in the admission of some new
visitor. Here, close by the king, was
the harsh but energetic Louvois, all
powerful now since the death of his
rival Colbert, discussing a question of
military organization with two officers,
the one a tall and stately soldier, the
other a strange little figure, undersized
and misshapen, but bearing the insig
nia of a marshal of France, and own
ing a name which was of evil omen
over the Dutch frontier, for Luxem
bourg was looked upon already as the
successor of Conde, even as his com
panion Vauban was of Turenne. Be
side them a small white haired clerical
with a kindly face, Pere la Chaise,
confessor to the king, was whispering
his views upon Jansenism to the portly
Bossuet. the eloquent bishop of Meaux.
Close to the door Racine, with his hand
some face wreathed in ' smiles, was
chatting with the poet Boileau and the
architect Mansard, the three laughing
and jesting with the freedom which
was natural to the favorite servants of
the king.
"He becomes harder and harder to
amuse," said Racine. "I am to be at
Mme. de , Maintenon's room at 3 to
see whether a page or two of the Phe-
dre may not work a change. Madame
is a wonderful woman. She has brains,
she has heart, she has tact she is ad
mirable." ' -t .
"And yet she has one gift too many-

"Pooh! What matter her years when
she can carry them like thirty? What
an eye, what an arm ! And, ' besides,
my friends, he is not himself a boy
any longer."
very true but a young man con
sults his eye and an older man his ear.
Over forty, it is the clever tongue
which wins; under it, the pretty face.'
"Ah, you rascal! Then you. have
made up your mind that five and forty
years with tact will hold the field
against nine and thirty with beauty.
Well, when your lady has won she will
doubtless remember who were the first
to pay court to her."
"But I think you are wrong, Racine.
"Well, what then?"
"Then it may be a little serious for
you."
"And why?"
"The Marquise de Montespan has a
memory
"Her influence may soon be nothing
more. Maintenon is the cleverest wo
man in France.
"Pshaw, Racine, you know our dear
master well, or you should, for you seem
to have been at his elbow since the
days of the Fronde. Is he a man,
think you, to be amused forever by
sermons? No, no; it will be the Mon
tespan or, if not she, some younger
beauty."
"My dear Boileau, I say again that
her sun is setting. Have you not
heard the news? Her brother, M. de
Vivonne, has been refused the entree.
"From whom had you it?"
"From De Catinat, the captain of the
guard. He had his orders to bar the
way to him.'
"Ha, then the king does indeed mean
mischief. That is why, his brow is so
cloudy this . morning then. By my
faith, if the marquise has the spirit
with which folk credit her, he may find
that it was easier to win her than to
slight her."
"Aye, the Mortem arts are no easy
race to handle."
"WelL heaven send him a safe way
out of it! But who is this gentleman?
His face, is .somewhat grimmer than
those to which the court is accustomed.
Ha, the king catches sight of , him, and
Louvois beckons to him to advance."
The stranger who had attracted Ra
cine's attention was a tall, thin man,
with a high aquiline nose, stern, fierce
gray eyes, peeping out from under tuft
ed brows, and a countenance so lined
and marked by age, care and stress of
weather that , it stood out amid the
prim courtier faces which surrounded
it as an old hawk might in a cage of
birds of gay plumage.
Louis possessed In a high degree the
royal faculty of recognition. . "It is
years since I have seen him. but I re
member bis face well,", said he, turn
ing to his minister. "It is the Comte
de Frontenac, Is it not?" .
Yes. sire," answered Louvois. "It Is
indeed Louis de Buade, comte de Fron
tenac and formerly governor of Can
ada." "We are glad to see you once more at
our lever," said the monarch as the
old nobleman stooped his head and
kisjed the white hand which was ex-
