THE CASTLE vu built, jn the corner of a treat rock, bo lhat on three sides It was quit Impregnable, and great window were placed here wher. sling, or bow, or culverln could not reach, and consequently light and comfort. Impossible to a position which had to bs guarded, were se cured. To the west was a great rallav. and then, rising far away. Treat Jagged mountain fastnesses: rising peak on peaic, me sneer t studded with mountain ash and thorn, whosa roots clung In cracks and crev ices and crannies of the stone. This was evidently the portion of the aUe occupied by the ladles In by sone days, for the furniture had more air of comfort than any I had seen. The windows were curialnless, and he yellow moonlight, flowing In through the diamond panes, enabled one to see even colors, whilst It soft ened the wealth of dust which lay over all and dltgulsed In some measure the ravages of time and the moth. My lamp seemed to be of little effect In the brilliant moonlight, but I was .glad to have It with me, for there was a dread loneliness In the place which chilled my heart and made my nerves tremble. Still, it was better, than living alone In the rooms which I had come to hate from the presence of the Count, and after try fas a little to school my nerves, I found a soft quietude come over me. A MARKED CONTRAST TVROUGIIT BY TIM. I Here I am, sitting ata little oak table where In old times possibly some fair lady sat to pen, with much thought I and many blushes, her Ill-spelt love letter, and writing In my diary In shorthand all that has happened since I closed It last. It Is nineteenth century up-to-date with a vengeance. And Tet, unless tnyJ senses" deceive me. the old centuries had. and have, powers of their own which mere "modernity" cannot kill Later: the morning of 16 May God preserve my sanity, for to this X am reduaad. Safety and the assur ance of safety are things of the past. Whilst I live on here there Is but one thing to hope for; that I may not go mad. If. Indeed, I be not mad already. If I be sane, then surely It is maddening to think that of all the foul things that lurk In this hate ful place the Count is the least dread ful to me; that to him alone I can look for safety, even though this be onlT while fI can serve his nuraose. Great God! merciful God! Let me be ' calm, for out of that way lies mad ness Indeed. X begin to get new lights on certain things which have puzzled me.

The sense of sleep was I upon me. and with it the obstinacy! which sleep brings as outrider. The! nft nnnml"i.1it awithei! nnri thft wMs' expanse without gave a sense of free dom which refreshed me. I deter mined not to return tonight to the gloom haunted rooms, but to sleep here, where of old ladles had sat and sung and lived sweet lives whilst their gentle breasts were sad for their menfolk away In the midst of re morseless wars. I drew a great couch out of Its place near the comer, so that, as I lay, I could look at the lovely view to east and south, and unthinking of and uncaring for the dust, composed myself for sleep. I suppose I must have fallen asleep; I hope so, but I fear, for all that followed was startling real so real that now, sit ting here In the broad, full aunllgl o? the morning, I cannot In the least believe that It was all sleep. TnE "DREAM" BEGINS TO TJJfWIXD ITSELF. I was not alone. The room was the same, unchanged In any way since I came Into It; I could see along thej floor, In the brilliant moonlight, my i own footsteps marked where I had disturbed the long accumulation of j dust. In the moonlight opposite me were three- young women, ladles" by their dress and manner. I thought at ! tho time that I roust be dreaming when I saw them, for, though the moonlight was behind them, they threw no shadow on the floor. They came close to me and looked at me for some time, and then whls pered together. Two were dark, and had high aquiline noses, like the Count, and great dark, piercing eyes, that seemed to be almost red when contrasted with the pale yellow moon. The other was fair, as fair as can be with great wavy masses of golden nair ana eyes -Ke paie cappnires. i seemed somehow to know her face, and to know it In connection with some dreamy fear, but I could not recollect at the moment how or where. All three had brilliant white teeth, that shone like pearls against the ruby of their voluptuous lips. There was something about them that made me uneasy, some longing and at the same time some deadly fear. This story will b continued In the Pan-lay afternoon c-ditlen of The Tlmea.

And yet every man. woman and child of this great army could stand comfortably on State n Island.

That there Is still ample room on the earth for Its Inhabitants Is proved by the fact that. If they were equally distributed, each would have more than a score of acres for "elbow-room" In other words, there are thlrty-on persons to each square mile of land surface Hut. as a matter of fact, the distribution Is so very unequal that, while Belgium hasf or had before the war) 651 people to each square mile (more than one to each acre), there are J JO acrea for each Canadian, Holland ranks next tu Ilelgium with 407 to every square mile: the Hrltlsh Isles have t74, Japan, 25C and Germany, 111. At the other end of the list we have Australia with little more than three people for every two square miles f Peru and Algeria with five to the square inlla.
