Privately, as became invalids, without the knowledge of anyone outside their confiden tial entourage, the representatives of the two great neighbors received General Stenovics. They are believed to have convinced him that, in the event of any further disorders in Kra vonia, intervention could not be . avoided; troops were on either frontier, ready for such an emergency; a temporary joint occupation would be forced on the allies. With a great deal of sorrow, no doubt, the General felt himself driven to accept this con clusion. Hi' at once requested Stafnitz to fe'tch the gu:is to Slavna; he left the Colonel full discretion in the matter. His only desire was to insure the tranquillity of the capital and to show Volseni how hope ess it was to maintain the fanciful and absurd claims of Baroness Dobrava. The representatives, it must be supposed, approved this at'itude and wished the General all success. At a later date his efforts to se cure order, and to avoid the inevitable but regrettable result of any new disturbance, were handsomely acknowledged by both pow ers. General Stenovics had not Stafnitz's nerve and dash, but he was a man of consid erable resource. A man of good feeling too, to judge from another step ne took?whether with the cog nizance of the representatives or entirely of his own motion has never become known He waited till Colonel Stafnitz, who returned a civil and almost effusive reply to his commu nication, had set off to bring the guns?which, as has been seen, had been unloaded from the railway and lay at Kolskoi, three days' journey up the Krath -then he entered into communi cation with Volseni. He sent Volseni a private and friendly warning. What was the use of Volseni holding out when the big guns were coming? It could mean only hopeless resist ance, more disorder, more bloodshed. Let Volseni and the lady whose claims it sup ported consider that, be warned in time, and acknowledge King Alexis! This letter he addressed to Zerkovitch. There were insuperable diplomatic difficulties in the way of addressing it to Sophy directly. "Madam I may not call you, and mistress I am loth to call you," said Queen Elizabeth to the Archbishops wife: it was just a case of that sort of difficulty. He could not call her Queen of Kravonia, and she would be offended if he called her Baroness Dobrava. So the letter went to Zerkovitch, and it went by the hand of one of Zerkovitch's friends?so anxious was the General to be as friendly and conciliatory as circumstances permitted. Much to his surprise, considerably to his alarm, Lepage was sent for to the (general's private residence on the evening of the day on which Colonel Stafnitz set out for Kolskoi to bring up the guns. Stenovics greeted him cordially, smoothed away his apprehension, acquainted him with the nature of his mission and with the gist of the letter which he was to carry. "Beg M. Zerkovitch to give the letter to Baroness Dobrava?" He called her that to Lepage? "as soon as possible, and to urge her to listen to it. Add that we shall be readv to treat her with every consideration?any title in reason, and any provision in reason too. It's all in my letter; but repeat it on my lie half, Lepage " " I shouldn't think she'd take either title or money, General," said Lepage bluntly. " You think she's disinterested? No doubt, no doubt! She'll be the more ready to see the melessness of prolonging her present attitude." He grew almost vehement, as he laid his hand on a large map which was spread out on the table in front of him. " Look here, Lepage. This is Monday. By Wednesday evening Colonel Stafnitz will be at Kolskoi ?here." He put his finger by the spot. "On Thursday morning he'll start back. The barges travel slowly; but?yes, I think he'll have his guns here by Sunday? less than a week from now. Yes, on Thursday night he ought to reach Evena, on Friday Rapska, on Saturday the lock at Miklevni. Yes, on Saturday the lock at Miklevni. That would tiring him here on Sunday. Yes, the lock at Miklevni on Saturdav, I think." He looked up at Lepage almost imploringly. " If she hesitates show her that. They are bound to be here in less than a week." Stenovics passed a purse over to Lepage. " For your necessary expenses," he said. Lepage took up the purse, which felt well filled, and pocketed it. " The Baroness may not fully appreciate what 1 have been saying," added Stenovics. " But Lukoviteh knows every inch of the river - he'll make it quite plain, if she asks him about it. And present her with my sincere respects and sympathy?my sympathy with her as a private person, of course You mustn't commit me in any way, Lepage." " 1 think," said Lepage," that you are capable of looking after that department yourself, General. But aren't you making the Colonel go a little too fast?" "No, no; the barges will do about that." " But he has a large force to move, 1 sup pose?" "Oh, dear no! A large force? No, no! Only a company?just about a hundred strong, Lepage." He rose. "Just about a hundred, I think." "Ah, then he might keep time." Lepage agreed still thoughtfully. "You'll start at once?" the General asked. " Within an hour." "That's right. We must run no unneces sary risks; delay might mean new troubles.' He held out his hand and shook Lepage's warmly. " You must believe that I respect and share your grief at the Kind's death.'' "Which King, General?" "Oh, oh! King Alexis, of course! We must listen to the voice of the nation Our new King lives and reigns. The voice of the nation, j Lepage!" " An!" said Lepage dryly. " I'd been suspect ing some ventriloquist." General Stenovics honored the sally with a broad smile. He thought the representatives with colds would be amused if he repeated it. The pat on the shoulder which he gave Lepage was a congratulation The animal is so very inarticulate of itself,' he said To be continued next Sunday , Synopsis of Preceding Chapters IT is name-day of the King of the ancient King dom of Kravonia, and the capital city of Slavna is given over to festivities in His Majesty's honor. Sophy de Gruche is new to Slavna and its peo ple, except to Marie Zerkovitch and the latter's husband, proprietor of the leading newspaper in Kravonia. She has come to Slavna to find her fortune, but on this festal day Sophy has only a few shillings and the fee from a couple of Frencn pupils between her and dire want. Sophy is watching the military parade, and listening to the court gossip of Captain Markart. The latter hints of some grave scandals in imperial affairs, notably the evident existence of factions? some plotting for the elevation of the King's son by a morganatic wife in place of the legitimate Prince. The Prince is considered a martinet by the Slavna military, of whom he is garrison Comman, dant, and there is no small objecting when an order is issue* 1 that all soldiers must remain at barracks during this merry evening. Captain Mistitch (nicknamed Captain " Hercules''), the leader in mutinous talk, induces Lieutenants Rastatz and Sterkoff to join him in defying the order, and the three start-out to fi. i the Prince, loudly boasting of what will happen when they meet him. They do meet him soon, Pastatz flees in terror, and Sterkoff conceals himself behind a pillar, leav ing Mistitch to make good his threats. The latter | defies the Commandant. In the ensuing duel the Prince severs the tendons of Mist itch's wrist, and is about to march him off to the guard-house, when Sterkoff springs out of the darkness to stab the Prince in the back. At that instant Sophy, who has been watching the encounter from a window overhead, lets fall a heavy bronze statue, which crushes the would-be assassin to the ground. Sophy receives her reward, the King appointing her Keeper of the Tapestries, at four hundred pounds a year; but there is no end of trouble over Mistitch's proposed execution. The Prince is firm in his intention, despite the protests of General Stenovics and Hercules's admirers; but finally consents to reprieve his assailant, when the (leneral approves an order for a lot of cannon, which will give the Prince's tower command of the city. The King confers a patent of nobility on Sophy, making her Baroness of Dobrava, as further recog nition of her services. Sophy goes to Praslok, the Prince's country estate, and is there appointed lieutenant of the Volseni artillery at the request of the rank and file. The King, in fear of an early death, orders the Prince to go abroad to find a fitting wife. The Prince, in love with Sophy, temporizes. The two plight their troth with the arrival of the news of the "big guns" for Slavna. The clique at the Palace conspire to keep from the Prince all knowledge of his father's precarious condition: but the valet Lepage and the journalist Zerkovitch inform the Prince that "the King's life hangs by a hair; and your crown by a thread.'' The cabal in the Palace persuade the King to sign an order requiring the immediate return from Praslok of Sophy, convincing him that she has designs on the Prince. Stenovics, knowing that Lepage is giving in formation to the Prince, so informs the King. The valet, given a hearing, tells the King of the conspiracy to place the Countess' son on the throne, and His Majesty, suffering from his weak heart, falls back dead. Stafnitz, realizing the need of time, when informed by the physician of the King's death, exclaims: "No! His Majesty dies to-morrow!" The twenty-four hours this would give the con spirators would be enough to effectually head off the Prince's attempt to assume his inheritance, and to place the Countess' son on the throne. Also they decide to send Captain Mistitch with one hun dred soldiers to Praslok to execute the King's order in reference to Sophy, with the tentative hope that the Prince would object, and be shot. However, Lepage manages to escape from the Palace and inform Zerkovitch of the King's death, and Zerkovitch departs to inform the Prince, an hour t>efore Mistitch leives on his mission. Mistitch reaches Praslok subsequent to Zerko vitch's arrival, who has gone to Volseni to find the Prince, and at once places Sophy under arres*. The Prince rushes back with a small force. He and Mistitch tire at each other simultaneously, and both are hit, the latter fatally, and the Prince dangerously. Countess Kllensburg's son Alexis is placed on the t hrone by the ant 1 Prince faction. TARTARLITHINE A Spottswood, N.
