frontier between the Browns and
Grays Marta Galland and her mother,
entertaining Colonel Westerling of
the Grays, see Captain Lanstron, staff
intelligence officer of the Browns, in-.
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.!
' '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,"
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
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
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
"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. "
