Jured by a fall in his aeroplane. , , . CHAPTER II Ten years . later. Westerling, nominal vice but real chief of staff, reinforces South La Tir, meditates on war, and speculates on the comparative ages of himself and Marta, who is visiting in the Gray Capital ' ri.: jf..7i- CHAPTER III Westerling calls on Marta.. She tells him of her teach ing children the follies of war and martial patriotism, begs him to pre vent war while he is chief of staff, and predicts that if he makes war against the Browns he will not win. CHAPTER IV On the ' march with the 53rd of .the. Browns Private Stransky, anarchist, decries war and played-out patrotism and is placed under arrest. Colonel Lanstron over hearng, begs him off saying the an archist will fight well when enraged , and is "all man." ' v CHAPTER W Lanstron calls' '''on Marta at her home. He talks with Feller, the gardner. Marta tells Lan strom that she believes Feller to be a spy. Lanstron. conffesses.it is true. ' f t i' CHAPTER VI Lanstron shows Marta a telephone which Feller has concealed in a secret passage Under the tower for use to benefit the Browns in war emergencies pointing out its value as being in the center of the fighting zone in case of war, Marta consents for it and 'Teller to remain for the present. LanstrOn de clares 'tis love for, Marta. ' , CHAPTER VII Westerling and the Gray premier' plan to use a tri vial international affair to forment warlike patrotism in army and peo ple and striking before declaring war. Partow, Brown chief of staff, and Lanstron, made vice, discuss the "trouble,( and the Brown defenses. Par tow reveals his plans to Lanstron.! whis- ' 'Tea, very merciful," Hugo ipered, patting Peterkin's arm, :' ; "feh-h-h! Silence, I tell, you!" com imanded Fracasse crossly. He was I falling into a halt doze at last. . In marching order, with cartridge jbozes full, on Saturday night, the 53d of the . Browns .marched out of bar racks to the main pass road. One (company after another left the road at ia given point, bound for the position imapped in its instructions. Dellarme's, however, went on until it was oppo site the Galland house. "We are depending on you," the colonel said to Dellarme, giving his ihand a grip., "You are not to draw 1 off till you get the flag." "No, sir," Dellarme replied. "Mind the signal to the batteries keep the men screened warn them not to let their first baptism of shell fire break their nerves!" the colonel added in a final repetition of instruc tions already Indelibly Impressed on the captain's mind. Moving cautiously through a cut, 'Dellarme's company came, about mid jnlght, to a halt among the stubble of I a wheat-field behind a knoll. After I he bad bidden the men to break ranks, 1 he crept up the incline.. "Yes, it's there!" he whispered when Ihe returned. "On the crest of the knoll a cord Is stretched from stake to stake," he said, explaining the rea son for what was to be done, ae was his custom. "The engineers placed it there after dusk and the frontier was closed, so that you would know just where to use your spades in the dark. Quietly as possible I No talking!" he kept cautioning as the men turned the soft earth, "and not higher than. the cord, and lay the etubble side of the soda on the reverse so as to cover the fresh earth on the aky-ilne." .V' When the work was done all re turned behind the knoll except the sentries posted at intervals on the crest to watch. With the aid of a small electric flash, screened by hie hands, Dellarme again examined a sec tion of the etaff map "that outlined the contour of the knoll in relation tq the other positions. After this he wrote in his diary the simple facts of the day's events, concluding with a senti ment of gratitude for the honor shown his company and a prayer that he might keep a clear head and "do his duty if war came on the morrow. "Now, every one got all the sleep he can!" ho advised the men. Straneky slept with hia head on his arm, soundly; the others slept ho bet ter, than the men. of the 128th. The night passed without any alarm ex- copt that of their own thoughts, end therwelcoinM dawn at .8 tPllef frfi&i suspense., - mere was no not Conee thla morning, and they washed down their rations with water -from their canteens. . The old sergeant was lying beside Captain Dellarme on the crest, the eunrise in their faces.,! As the mist cleared from the plain it revealed the white dots of the frontier posts in the meadow, and behind them many gray figures m skirmish order, scarcely vis ible except through the glasses. "It .looks like business!" declared the old Bergeant. , "Yes, it begins the minute they eroes the , line ! " . said Dellarme. -' Hia glance sweeping to the rear tc scan the landscape under Jthe light 01 day, he' recognized, with . a sense i of pride and awe, the tactical important of his company's position in relation to that of the importance of the other companies.. Easily he made out the regimental line by streaks of con cealed trenches and groups of brown uniforms; and here and there were the oblong, cloth stretches of waiting hospital litters. On the reverse slope of another knoll was the farmhouse, marked X on his map as the regimen tal headquarters, where he was to watch for tho signal to fall back from his first stand in delaying the enemy's advance. . Directly to the rear was the cut through which the company had come from the main pass road, and be yond that the Galland house, which was to be the second stand.' Now Dellarme disposed his men in line back of the ridge of fresh earth that they had dug in the night, ready to rush to their places when he blew the whistle that hung from his neck, but he. did, not allow them a glimpse over the crest. f1 know that you are curious, but powerful glasses are watching for you to show yourselves; and if a battery turned loose, on us you'd understand," be explained. V Thus .the hours wore on, and the church clock struck nine and ten. -- "Never a movement down there! called the sergeant from the crest to Dellarme. "Maybe this is Just; their final bluff before they come to terms about Bodlapoo" that , stretch of Af rican luncle that seemed very far away to them' all. "Let; us hope so!" said Dellarme seriously. ' Choosing to ko, to town by the castle road rather than down the ter race to the main pass road, Marta, starting for the regular Sunday ser vice of her school, as she emerged from the grounds, saw Feller, garden- shears in hand, a figure of stone watching the approach of "some field batteries. The question of allowing blm to undertake his -part as a spy had drifted into the background of her mind under the distressing and 'ever present pressure of the crisis. He was to remain until there was war. She was almost past him before he real lzed her presence, which he acknowl edged by a startled motement and a step forward as he took oft his hat She paused. His eyes were glowing like coals under a blower as he looked at her . and again at the batteries seeming to include her with the guns in the spell of his fervid abstraction "Frontier closed last night to pre vent Intelligence about , our prepara Hons leaking out Lanny's plan all alive the guns coming," he said, his shoulders stiffening, hie chin drawing in, bis features resolute and beaming with the ardor Of youth in action "troops moving here and there to their places engineers preparing me ae tenses automatics at critical points with the infantry field-wires laid field-telephones set up the wireless spitting the caissons full planes and dirigibles ready search-lights in po sition" s There the torrent of hia broken sen tences was checked. A shadow passed in front of him. .He came out of his trance of' imageries of activities, so .vividly clear to his military mind, to realize that Marta was abruptly leav ing. . .' 1 "Miss Galland!" he called urgently. ,"Firing may commence at any min lute. You must not go Into town!" ! "But I must!" she declared, speak ling ... over, her, shoulder .. while she passed. It was clear that no warning iwould prevail against her determined 'mood, . ' : .U sj ; 'r- "Then I shall go wnn your' ne saia, starting toward her with a light step. "It is not necessary, thank your' she . answered, more coldly than she had ever spoken to him. This had a magically quick effect on his atti tude. "I beg your pardon 1 I forgot!" he explained in his old man's voice, his head sinking, his shoulders drooping In the humility' of a servant who rec ognizes that he has been properly re buked fori presumption. "Not a gun ner any more I'm & spy!" he thought, asxhe uhuffled . off without looking toward the batterie3 twain, though the music of wheels and hoofs, was now close by.
