The distance by highway between Mem phis and Tanis was eighty miles, a little more than two days' journey by horseback. Masanath had required two weeks to ac complish that distance. She refused to travel except in the cool of the morning and of the afternoon; if she felt the fatigue of an hour's journey, she rested a day at the next town; she consulted astrologers and moved forward only under propitious signs; she insisted on following the Nile until she wras opposite Tanis, instead of taking the highway at -On and continuing across the delta. She was now within ten miles of Tanis, fourteen days after her departure from Memphis. It was near sunset when a company of royal guards, under Menes, rode up from the north. The captain flung himself from his horse and hurried to Masanath's litter. "Holy Isis! Lady Masanath." he ex claimed; "where in all Egypt hast thou hid den thyself these fourteen days? The whole army of the north hath been search ing after thee, and Rameses hath raved like a madman since that day long past on which thou shouldst have arrived in Tanis.' "I have. been on the way," she answered loftily. "The haste of the prince is un seemly. I would not fatigue myself nor court disaster by incautiousness, these perilous days." "Perchance. thou hast been famished these fourteen days in the matter of court gossip," the captain said. "Wherefore I am come as thy informant with such news as thou shouldst know. For, being ignorant of the infelicities in the household of the king, it may be that thou wouldst ask after the little prince, Seti, and wherefore the queen appears no more at the side of the Pharaoh, nor speaks with thy lord nor sees thy noble father; and furthermore, where Ta-user hath taken herself and other things which would embarrass thee to hear answered openly." Masanath roused herself and prepared to listen. Serious words from the lips of the light-hearted captain were not common, and when he spoke in that manner it was time to take heed. "I had heard of the little prince's misfor tune and of the treason of Ta-user and her party, and the placing of a price upon her head, but nothing more hath come to mine ears. Is there more, of a truth?" "Remember, I pray thee," the captain re plied, riding near to her, "that I bring thee this for thine own sake, not for the love of tale-bearing. On the counsel of Rameses, this day the Pharaoh sentenced Setl to ban ishment for a year to the mines of Lib ya-" "To the mines!" Masanath cried in horror. "Not as a laborer. Nay, the sentence was not so harsh. But as a scribe to the gover nor over them." "It matters little!" she declared indignant ly. "The boy prince-the poor, misguided young brother sent to a year banishment a lifelong humiliation! Libya, the death country! Now, was anything more brutal? Nay, it is like Rameses!" She sank back to the shadows of her lit ter. covered her face with her hands and shuddered because of the imminence of her trial. So they journeyed on, till at last Masa nath fell asleep-not from indifference, for her fears exhausted her-but because her mind still retained babyhood's way of com forting itself when too roughly beset. She was aroused in the middle of the first watch by the passage of her litter between bewildering stretches of lights. She was within the palace. The soldiers that bore her were tramping over a Damascene car pet, and between long lines of groveling at tendants. through an atmosphere of over whelming perfume. The messenger had been swift and the cotirt had had time to prepare to greet the coming crown princess with'propriety. After the first spasm of terror Masanath set her teeth and prepared to endure. She was borne to the doors of the throne room and two nobles gorgeously habited set the carved, steps beside the litter for her feet. N ithout hesitation she descended. The great hall was ablase with light and lined with courtiers. The Pharaoh, with the ueen by his side again, was in his place un der the canopy. Har-hat, glittering with gems and rustling in snow-white robes, approached with tri umph in his face to embrace her. But with in three steps he paused as suddenly as though he had been commanded. He bent his knee and kissed the proffered hand. He had become the subject of his daughter. She suffered him to lead her to the royal dais, where she knelt. The queen de scended, raised her and led her to the throne. Meneptah met them, kissed Masa nath's forehead and blessed her. The queen embraced her and returned to her place beside the Pharaoh. Masanath turned to the right of the royal dais and faced the prince. Thus far her greetings had not been hard. Now was the supreme test. Har-hat conducted her within a few paces of the prince and stepped aside. What followed was to prove Masanath's willingness. Rameses stood in the center of a slight ly raised platform, which was carpeted with gold-edged purple. Behind him was his great chair. But for the badge of princehood, the fringed ribbon dependent from a gem-crusted annulet over each temple. his haibiliments were the same as the Pharaoh's. Masanath's face fell and she approncehed the prince with slow steps. Within three paces of the platform she paused and sank to her knees. It was done. She had acknowledged the betrothal and knelt to her lord. Ranmeses raised her. He lifted the badge of princehood from his fore head, shortened the tillet from which it hung. so that it would fit her small head. and set it on her brow. The great palace shook with the ac elaim of the courtiers. Taking Masanath's hand. -Rameses led her down the hall through the bending ranks of purple wearing Egyptians to the great portals of the hall. There he gave her into the hands of a troop of court ladies, lithe as leopards and gorgeous as butterflies, who led her with many sinuous obeisances to her apartments. After a sumptuous meal Masanath sur veyed herself with a swift glance in a plate of polished silver which was her mirror, and then, darting out of her door, ran down the corridor as though she would outstrip repentance before it over took her. She came upon him whom she sought. He was on the point of entering his apartments. lle paused with his hands on the curtains and waited for her. "A boon, my lord," she panted, chiefly from trepidation. "A boon! Thou would'st ask a boon of me! Nay, I will not promise, for it may be thou comest to ask thy freedom, and that I will not grant for spleen." Still she curbed herself, "Nay, 0 Prince; I am come to ask naught of thee which-a wife-may not justly ask of-her-lord." "What is the boon that thou mayest just ly ask of me?" "My father-" "I am no longer in debt to thy father." "I ask no favor for my father at thy hands. Rather am I come to crave a boon for myself. My father asked an Israelite maiden at the hands of the Pharaoh a year agone. and she was beloved by my friend and thine. She fled from my father and was hidden by the man she loved-" "Aye, I know the story. Hotep brought it to mine ears months ago. The man was Kenkenes, and thy father overtook him and threw him into prison in Tape. What more?" "The Israelite *s gone, and my father's servants are still seeking for her, and I would not have her taken." "Thou art a queen. What is she, a slave, to thee?" "A sister, my comforter, my one friend!" "Thou canst find sisters and comforters and friends among high-born women ef Egypt. I had laid Kenkenes' folly concern ing this Israelite to the moonshine genius in him. But the slave is a sorceress, for the madness touches whosoever looks upon "I is her goodness and her grae that win. Rameses. If that he sorcey. let it prevail the world over. Give herfreo and save her spotlessness." "Hr-hat shall not take her, I promise thee. I shall mend her hack to her place in the brick fields." Ma=anath reconle in horror. "To the brick $ids !" she cried. "Bachat to the brick ails Im" YOKE riE DAYS wM EN ED TAE CHILDREN BONDAGE OF EGYPT will be secure there, and the reduction of her charms will be the saving of Kenkene. "Turn not away, my lord," she begged. "See what havoc I have wrought for RacheI when I sought to help her. And behold the honesty of thy boast of love for me. My first boon and thou dost deny it!" He laughed, and slipping an arm about her, pressed her to him. "First I am a king-nexf a lover," he said. "Thy prayer seeketh to come between me and my rule over the Israelites. Ask for something which hath naught to do with my scepter." Crushed and stunned with despair and horror, Masanath made her way to her apartments in a mist of tears. CHAPTER XXVI. The Fint-Born. At the door of her apartments Masanath was met by the faithful Mart, who drew her within and showed her triumphantly that the usurping ladies-in-waiting had de parted. The unhappy girl was grateful for the change. The relief for her sorrow was its expression, and she dreaded the restraint put upon her by the presence of discerning and unfamiliar eyes. All desire ,for sleep had left her. Narl, weary and heavy-headed, begged her to re tire, but she would not. So at last the wait ing woman, at her -mistress' command, lay down and slept. The night wore on to its noon, and-Masa nath was becoming drowsy, In spite of her determination to keep a sleepless vigil until dawn, when she was aroused by, a commo tion in the vicinity of the palace. There were indoor cries and shouts for help and frantic knocks upon doors without. Masanath passed into the outer room to the window that looked upon the city. Every house had a light, which flickered and appeared at this window and that, and the streets were full of flying messengers, who cried 6ut as they ran. Now and then a chariot, drawn at full speed, dashed past, and by the fluttering robes of the occupants Masanath guessed them to be physicians. All Ta 'is was in an uproar, and its alarm possessed her at once. "Awake, awake, Nari!" Masanath cried, shaking the sleeping woman. "Something has befallen the city. It Is In the palace and everywhere." Meanwhile a chorus of screams smote upon her ears, and the wild outcries of men filled the great palace with terrifying clamor. Masanath, shaking with dread, wrung her hands and wept. Nar, stupid with fear, sat up and listened. Presently some one came running and beat with frenzied hands upon the door. "Open! Open! In the name of Osiris!" cried a voice, which, though it quaked with consternation, Masanath recognized as her father's She flew to the door and wrenched it open. Har-hat, half-dressed, stood before it. "Father, what manner of sending is this?" she cried. "Death!" he panted, "Come with me!" He caught her arm and ran, dragging her after him down the corridor, half-lighted, but murmurous with sound. "What is it, father?" she begged as he hurried her on. "The gods only know. Rameses hath been smitten and is dying, or even now is dead!" "Rameses!" she breathed in a terrified whisper. "Rameses! And an hour ago i talked with him-so strong, so resolute, so full of life-O Holy Isis!" "It is a pestilence sent by Mesu. The whole city is afflicted. Ptah shield us!" All the dwellers of the palace were flocked about the apartments of Rameses. The royal pair, the king's ministers, the imme diate companions of Remeses. the high priest from the Rameside temple to Set at Tanis and a corps of leeches were present. The couch was surrounded. Seti was not present, for only in the last moment had some one realized that the young prince should be brought. Hotep had gone to conduct him to the chamber. The queen, inert and lifeless, lay on the floor at the foot of the prince's bed. Most of the physicians bent over her. Her wo men, chiefly the wives of the ministers, were hysterical and helpless. But it was Meneptah who froze the hearts of his courtiers with horror. Because of his obstinacy Egypt had gone down into famine, pestilence and destruc tion. Without more than ordinary concern he had watched the hand of the. scourge pursue it into ruin till what time he should relent, and he had not relented. But now that dread Hand had entered within the boundaries of his loves and had smitten Rameses, his heir, his idol! The effect upon him was terrible. The death chamber rang like a torture dungeon. Nechutes and Menes, by united efforts, barely prevented him from doing self-mur der. The earnest attempts of the priest to quiet him were totally useless. Nothing could have been more shocking. The violent scene wrought Masanath's already overstrained nerves to the highest. pitch of distress. The blood congeailed in her veins and her steps lagged, but Har hat, for some purpose not apparent to any who looked upon his daughter's anguish, drew her to the vecry side of the couch. The ieeches. who had been vainly seeking for some flicker of life, stepped aside and the eyes of the cowering girl fell on the prince. Rameses had seen the Hand that smote him. The look on the frozen features completed the undoing of Masanath's self-control and she collapsed beside the bed, utterly pros trated. Hotep' entered with Seti. The boy prince's face was inflamed with much weep~ng, and he flung himself upon the cold clay of R~ameses, forgetting wholly that the older brother had urged the passage of a harsh sentence upon his young head. The courtiers, who had stoically witnessed Meneptah's frantic grief, turned now and hid their blinded eyes. Hotep went to the Pharaoh and laid his hand on the mon arch's shouider. The action commanded. Exhausted by his frenzy, Meneptah leaned against his scribe, The cup)-bearer and the captain released him and Hotep spoke quietly. "Beest thou, 0 my king, the sorrow of thy people? Behold thy young son and pity him. Look upon thy queen and com fort her. If thou, their staff, art broken, who shall bear' them 'up in their sorrow? Break not, Be thou as the strong father of thy great son, so that from the bosom of Osiris he may look upon Egypt and sleep well, seeing that in his loss his king dom lost not her prop and stay, her king, The scanty mnhpod of the monarch, thus ably invoked, responded somewhat. lHe raised himself nnd permitted Hotep to conduct him to the side of the boy prince. Beti fell down at his father's feet, and Hotep took Meneptah's hand and laid it on the bowed head. "Thou dost pardon him, 0 ron of Ptah," the scribe said in the same quiet voice, The king nodded weakly and wept afresh. After the prince had clasped his father's knees and covered the hand with kisses, he obeyed the scribe's sign and Went away to his mother's side. Again Hotep, com pelling by his low voice, spoke to the king and the assembly listetied. "The gods have not limited the darts of affliction to thee, 0 son of Ptah. Rameses journeyed not alone into Amenti. He took a kingdom with him, Behold, the Hebrew hath loosed his direst plague upon Egypt. and by the lips of an Israelite, in the streets, every first-born in thy realm per ished in the home of his father this night!" The entire assembly cried out, and most of them ran sobbing and praying from the chamber. Instantly the outcry and clamor in the palace broke forth again, for the in habitants knew that the bow which had smitten Rameses had fallen on one of their own. Meneptah staggered away from Hotep, his frenzy upon him again. "Bend them hither," he cried hoarsely, waving his arms toward a white-faced courtier that had stood hi. ground. "Send them hither-the Hebrews, Mesu and Aaron! Israel shall depart before they make me sink the world! For they have sent mad ness upon me! I condemned my gentle son, E uihdthose who gvs me wise counsel, Iavruned Egypt, Ihave slain mine heir and now the blood of the first-born of all my kingdom is upon my head!" His voice rose to a shriek, and Hot p , putting an arm about him, hushed hiqp with gentle authior ity and signed the courtier to obey. The physiciana lifted the queen and bore her away.

"Rise up and get you forth front mong my people," he besought them. "both ye and the children of Israel, and go as&Uerve the Lord as ye have said.

Sir 'Thomas Lipton Says It is Too Late to Make Arsiangements. There will be no race for the America's cup next year, unless at the last moment, some other aspirant for international hon ors than Sir 'thomas Lipton steps into the breach. A letter from Sir Thomas received in New York Saturday said that it was too late now to arrange a race for next year. Lipton had hoped to get George L. Watson to design a challenger for him. Sir Thomas in his letter says that there is plenty of time to arrange things for 1906, and he will weigh matters carefully and look for an ' tI or designec:-. t 1:tn is s still woni dering about the new rule, anel peraps after another season of trial the New York Yacht Club may be disposed to arrange a race under the rule, which has now become a national one. There has been some talk of Kenneth Clark challenging, but that gentleman is in the same position now as Sir Thomas. Wat son was to have designed a boat for Mr. Clark under the new rule if a race could have been arrangel. It seems to be the opinion that Alfred Mylne will be the next man to turn out a cup challenger. He is a pupil of Mr. Wat son. and has been very successful with the boats he has built. It Is not at all unlikely that Sir Thomas will have a big boat built from designs by Mylne for racing in home waters next season, and if that boat is a success Mylne will design the next chal lenger.
