I came in from poor little Colettes funeral, sad and tired, for I had walked, hat in hand, among the chief mourners, all the long way to the cemetery. At the loge by the iron gate the concierge told me that M. le Colonel waited for me in the studio. When I entered I thought at fust that he must have wearied of waiting and gone away. Then, after a moment. I saw him sitting by Denis" writing table, over In the shadows at the far side of the room. His head was in his arms upon the table. And he was quite still. "Von Altdorf:-' biit he did not stir. Then I went across the room and touched him upon the arm. Colonel von Altdorf raised a face that I did not know. "Whywhy, man. what's happened?" I cried in alarm. "What are you looking that way for? What is it, I say?" Then my eye caught a crumpled bit of paper between liis fists, a dispatch. "You've news?" I demanded, "bad news? from Novodnia? from the prince?" - "There is no Novodnia." said Colonel von Altdorf in a dull tired voice, "and there's no prince, either." I think I stared at him for quite a min ute. Then I went over to the little cup- "-* ffii nVltilifririfrir/lffi CHAPTER XXIV Fourth Floor.

"Here!" said I, soothingly, "you drink a bit of this, and then we'll talk it over. You're a bit feverish. You don't know what you're saying." But von Altdorf pushed away the flask. "Would youlike to see it?" he asked, still in the strange, dull tone, and offered me the crumpled telegram. It was a senseless jumble of words, and I threw it back to him impatiently. "I can't read that, man!" said I. "write it out. or else, for heaven's sake, tell me what it says. If anything has happened, tell me! Wake up!" Colonel von Altdorf settled back in his chair with a little sigh, and twisted the sheets of paper idly between his fingers. He seemed in a kind of stupor quite be yond^any feeling. 'This," said he, with no emotion or seem ing interest in his* tone, "this tells of things that must have happened two days ago. It was sent, not fromfrom Novod ni. but Belgrade, by one ofCzerowitz's men. Czerowitz is dead. The prince is dead " "Great God!" I cried in a gasping whis per. "Dead? dead? the prince?" "Denis Mallory is dead," continued von Altdorf. as if he had not noticed the in teruption. "Georgias and his forces made an unexpected attack upon the capital Wattham, Mass.

The garrison turned color and joined them, even the Life Guards, all but a few. The princethe prince was killed upon the steps of the palace surrounded by a dozen officers and faithful men, Denis Malloi-y among them. It is certain that the prince is dead and that Czerowitz and the marshal are dead also. Denis Mallory fell across the body of the prince whom he had been shieding. A young lieutenant of the guards escaped and fled to Belgrade, from whence he sent the message to me. butbut not before he had learned that Georgias' movement had been inspired and in part directed and provisioned bythe White Throne, and that Novodni is to beto be wiped off the mapincluded within the Bulgarian boun daries. There is no more Novodnia. it's a Bulgarian province. Thatthat isall." And he sat silent once more, crumpling and smoothing the bits of paper between his hands, staring at the tapestried walls across the room. I suppose it was quite half an hour be fore either of us spoke or moved. Then at last I rose, taking a long deep breath, and moved once or twice up and down the room. I laid a hand upon Von Alt dorrs shoulder, and shook him gently till he raised his head. "Come!" said I. "Come! we must tell hiswe must tell the princess." "There is no princess," muttered von Altdorf. "She must always be the princess to us!" said I. "Come, man'." and he fol lowed me quietly. At the foot of the little ladder that had long since been set for our conveni ence at the studio window, we ran upon Sir Gavin MacKenzie. "Von Altdorf stood by while I told him swiftly the terrible news which the dispatch had brought. I had never seen the gruff old Scotsman-so overcome. , Then, after a momerR, slowly and with drooping heads, we went up thru the gar den paths to where a gleam of white and yellow showed the princess in her long steamer chair. She must have seen us coming, for she rose, when we were still at some distance, and stood waiting, and the book that she had held in her. hands dropped unnoticed to the ground. I think she suspected, from our faces and our bearing, some thing of what we would tell, for her own face went a little pale and her eyes grew wide and frightened. So we came to where she waited, and stood before her, bowed and silent, dread ing to speak the first word. But the princess put out a hand and touched me, looking into my face with those wide frightened eyes. "Whywhy "gentlemen!" she faltered. "What is It?What is it you would say? Colonel! Sir Gavin!Why, Mr. Creigh ton! Tell me, please! It'sbad news of of .coursefromNovodnia? Tell me, please, quietly! See. I'm quite, quite calm I I canbear anything.

"Oh, madame!" said I, "the Novodman hopes have been crushed utterlybeyond retrieving. There has been an attack uponupon the palace, and the prince, your husbandthe prince, your husband,, isdead." "But he?" demanded the Princess Eleanor swiftly, her voice rising to a hoarse cry, "but he? What of him?' And then all at once shS bethought her self and shrank back, catching her hands to her mouth. "Madame." said I, "the bravest gentle man and faithfulest friend in all the world is said to have died also, fighting to the last for the prince, your husband." Then I went on, gently as I might, to tell her all we knew of the tragedy that had swept so suddenly across the high hopes and brave plans of the gentlemen who fought for Novodnia's independence, but I do not think the princess heard any word of it all. She had sunk back into her chair again and sat quite still, her hands covering her face. Then after a long time, while we stood, silent and awkward, not daring to speak to her. powerless to utter any word of poor comfort, she looked up once more. Her face was perfectly calm, unnatural ly calm, with no trace of emotion7as von Altdorf's had been. "I thank you, gentlemen," said she, "for telling methe truth with no hesitation, no foolish attempts to make it light. I can say nothing just now. I musthave time to think. Will you leave for a little? Oh, Colonel von Altdorf, that Fate, of which you preach, has played her last card, hasn't she?I wonderI wonder if she's laughing?Ah, go. please, go!" And we left her there under the trees, the sweet, warm sunlight slanting through the leaves in golden splashes about her, the heavy perfume of flowers filling all the air, birds twittering cheerily from the branches overhead, and evento complete the ironya snatch of bright, gay music coming from a. barrel organ in the street beyond the high wall. I remember the music, it was an air from "Mignon." We went down through the garden to the studioColonel von Altdorf having, by this time, come quite to himself again we talked till the day was gone of the terrible thing which had all in a moment wrecked our every plan and , hope, .and had cut the very ground from under our feet. The chief problem was, of course, what was to become of the Princess Eleanor for we still thought of and spoke of her as "the princess," though she had no right to the title. To have called her anything else would have seemed a sort of unwar rantable liberty, an impertinence. The most natural event seemed to be that she should go back to her people in America, for there was now nothing to keep her in Europe. The prince was dead, his coun try was as if it had never existed as a body politic. She had no place here. 1 a - i_~ So a* t least it seemed to us, as. we sat Great Sale of Drapery Goods We expect a splendid response from the Twin Cities during this sale because the values secured are the very best that have been offered in recent years.

Tapestry, for talking the matter over, and we agreed that after a little delay, when the horror and shock should have in some measure passed, we would put the thing to her judgment and advise her to return home. Then after a bit we fell, most naturally, to talking of Denis Mallory, in hushed gentle voices, as of a great man gone to his last rest to reminding each other of all the things which had happened since that first evening at the Cafe d'Alencon. of his sayings and deeds, of what seemed to us the matchless nobility of the man. and of our bitter shame that we should so have misjudged, so have slighted him, at the first. We tried to picture that gal lant fight on the steps of the palace whei-e he had met his death. We tried to picture his bearing in the face of that certain dis asterthe paltry dozen brave spirits grouped there on the steps high over a snarling mob. Gallant It must have been. Ah, there was no doubt of that! smiling, probably. That would have been like him, smiling derisively down into the sea of faces while he drew his blade for its last grand play. Close beside his prince, aye, that's where he would have been, close beside or before him, covering his body with a marvelous swordsmanship that must have made those southern dogs gape and stare. mm 25c 42c 85c Constipation Makes Bat d Blood. HULL'S GRAPE TONIC GURES CONSTIPATION Constipation is the rotting and decaying of undigested food In the alimentary canal. Disease germs arise from this fester- ^ ^ ing mass, which find their way into the blood. The blood becomes impure and shortly the entire system gives way to the unhealthy condition.

Mull's Grape Tonic is a gentle and mild laxative in addition to being a blood-making and strength giving tonic which immediately builds up the wasted body and makes rich, red blood that carries its health-giving strength to every tissue at every heart beat.

So we talked together and wove our fan cies and sang our valedictory to the man we lov-3d, till the daylight faded to the dusk and dusk gloomed to night. And at last old MacKenzie and Colonel von Alt dorf rose sighing and went to their homes. "He was the best that the good God makes," said old Sir Gavin, gruffly. "We'll no see another such in the world." "We all refused, once, to take his hand." said von Altdorf. "We should pay well for that in the next world."
