Two people attracted a lot of atten tion by their palpable efforts at conceal ment lie, although the day was so hor, was enveloped in a long cloak, with a collar reaching past his cars, and his cotton white hair and mustache showed up occasionally in strong contrast to the deep brown of his face as he turned to watch the porters attacking a hug2 mound of his belongings. Each box and bag was blazoned with an imperial coronet over a monogram, and then told cme another guardedly and under promises of profound secrecy "that was Prince Paul DemtoiT. the owner of tho new 100 rater now lyin off Southampton. " She, the lady, was tall and gracefully girllike. A neat, natty blue serge lied feru frock; a sunburnt straw nat, with a dark blue ribbon; tiny tanned boots; a white shirt, with a turndown collar, and flowing tie completed her cotuim. raving a thick gossamer veil that com pletely hid her face, and but for the whiteness ami purity of her neck it would have womcd she suffered from some facial di-sflgurcme::t. It was evi dently a desire not to be recognized that Ted to the adoption of the yaslunak. She was evidently expecting or avoid fnjrCIl friends. Her had moved with ITbirdliko quickness as sho scanned each new arrival ou the platform, and her slender hand, whito and jewclless, twitched nervously round the handle of tho morocco menogrammed case sho car ried "Catching her eye from a distance, ho walked toward her with the easy, firm self assurance that women like She saw ho was coming to her and wait ed calmly perhaps sho breathed mor-. quickly. Ho raised his soft hat, and with a courtly bow said in p- rfect L'nglish, with tho mere scent of an acce::t: "Par don me, you are distressed. Have you missed your maid? Can I bo of any serv ice to you?" Now his hat was ofT he appeared a prematurely whito haired man of 4.3 r ou, wiin a una iace ana voices a ma:i evidently used to command. "Thank you very much," came in a soft sibilant voico from beneath th thick gcs.samer. "I have not oily !-r my maid, but my portmanteau, i afraid it is under that pile of lngga:.v. and" with a little shrug "1 afraid that pile of luggage is yours. " "That is mine, madame. I will p r your bag at once. May I ask where yv aro going? To Southampton, and it : of the highest importance you shouh! not miss this train? Pardon, docottrmt Lie. I will see that all is arranged " A few words to the guard, a rapii passage of backsheesh, and the missinu bag with a dainty monogram and -mall crest was placed carefully ou tho rack of the first class carriage by which the veiled lady was standing. With th coolness that seemed part of his natuiv. the Russian indicated to a iorter a small hamper and had it placed in the same compartment. There must have been some collusion and a lavish tip. lor, though the trai.i was crowded, tl: guarci, a:ttr tne imperceptible manner of his kind, kept that carriage empty until the train started, and thev found themselves alone, securely locked in. A sudden start ran through her slen der frame. She paused and asked quick ly. "Do you know when the next train leaves Waterloo for Southampton?" Ho was desolatetL Of course slu missed lu r maid, but ho was afraid not lor some hours. "Madame is glad? Madame is afraid cf being followed?" 'Ycs, madame is glad. She docs not wish to be taken back and forced into a hateful marriage," blushing prettily Tho old, old story stern father, eld crly lover, titled, rich, but horrid. No mother, no sister, no brother. She was flying from bondage to her aunt. Lady Azurcgore, in Guernsey. Yes, she was Lady Constanco Az urcgore. Had ho really met her at the Duchess of Arlington's dance? She thought she knew his face. That was why she trusted him so implicitly ou the platform, of course. But if sho was veiled, why was ho so shrouded in a big cloak? "Come, now," anxiously, "a lady? An elopement?" No, no, and again no! Nothing so joyous. He was Princo Paul DemtoiT and had fallen between two stools had incurred the enmity of the imperial court through coquetting with tho ni hilists. That meant tho Alexiefsky Ra velin or tho fortress of Peter and Paul in St. Petersburg, and, on the other hand, finding the "party of progress" go ing too far, ho was threatened with death for deserting tho red flag. You must pardon ma, prince, but we seem in trouble together, " and sho laughed merrily. "Do you know I half f houxrht von were a detective?" By this time ho hal returned to his hamper and produced deftly a tables cloth, plates knives, forks and servi ettes, small bottle of Chateau Mouton Uothsehild and a dainty cold chicken. Their mutual confessions had lessened embarrassment, and tho lady, after making a little moue, said that she was so hungry and so glad to eat, eta They chatted and laughed as the train sped through the beautiful country, and by the time Southampton was thought of she had smoked half a mild cigaretto and he had kissed her hand. Sho readjusted her veil, and he as sumed his big cloak with a sigh as tho whistle of the train signaled the station. "Tho Guernsey boat does not leave till midnight. What are you going to ilo? Where will you put up?" "I don't know. I will never be taken back alive. And you, you are hunted What will you do?" "Go on board my yacht. She is lying ofT here, and the gigwait3 for thi3 train at the landing steps. I must hail them, as none of them know me. My agent has engaged an entirely new crew, skip per included, all English. I want no nihilists on board." And ho looked moodily out of the window. She made a sudden movement, as if about to speak, but drew back. Again sho leaned forward, and the repetiton roused him from his thoughts. He looked up and saw her eyes glistening even through tho thick veil. She was crying! "What is the matter? You are fright ened. Can I help you?" "I hardly dare ask you. You may think badly of mo, but I will not bo forced into this detestable marriage. Can you may I" Ho divined her thoughts. "Stay on board my yacht and board tho boat at midnight? Yea, your ladyship, yes in all honor, yes." And ho held out both his hands, and -with a sob almost hys terical sho placed her tiny gloves in them as the train stopped. They left the station by a side door unnoticed, and walking down the broad graveled road with the soft sward and tho old time cannon passed the crum bling walls and found tho boat manned by six bronzed typical yachtsmen, the skipper, a fine looking old man, sitting motionless in the stern sheets holding tho yoke lines. "Do you know a respectablo woman who can look after this lady until the mail boat starts?" asked tho princo as ho handed her carefully on board and passed her portmanteau. Sho carried tho morocco case herself. "Well, snrr, I've took tho libbaty of invitiu my old woman on board today. Sho's been a stewardess, suit. " "Capital, captain. Now, lads, give way!' The boat soon shot alongsido a beau tiful schooner yacht Tho crew manned tho gangway as tho princo and Lady Constance came on board, and a mother ly, sunburned woman courtesied her through au exquisitely furnished saloon cabin into a bijou boudoir with a laco curtained bunk and a host of feminine fripperies. "I may sail tonight. Is all readv? Right Take the boat and go ashore, bring off my luggage and anything we may want from tho ship's stores. And, Johnson, keep tho men afloat, but yon just find out if there is any hue and cry about a lady eloping. " Captain Johnson, an old merchant captain, slowly winked and looked very knowing. "H'ml" ho said to himself. "I half s'spected as much. That's the sort of owner I likes to sail with. Lots o yellow boys kickin about this voyage, I lay." In about au hour he returned, and doffing his peaked cap said mysterious ly, "I spoke to my cousin, tho pleece man, an he says there's a lot o' cockney detectives down a-watchin the station an the Guernsey packet for some young 'ooman." Her ladyship had washed all travel stains away and changed her frock. She looked like a fresh rosebud, but her face grew deathly pale, her eyes dilated, and the nerve lines deepened into marks of agony when he told her tho captain's story. Ho thought she was going to faint and made as though to catch her. With a supremo effort sho regained her self possession and said in a hoarse whisper: "Oh, save me! Takomo to Guernsey in your yacht, cr I will jump over board!" He turned ou his heel without reply ing and went up tho companiouway on deck. "Johnson, your wife doesn't mind a trip to sea?" "Lor bless yer royal 'ighness, she's dying for a sniff of tho ocean!" "Get under weigh at once." "Aye, aye, sir I All hands on deck! Tumble up, my hearties!" Her face flushed deeply when sht heard the clank of the chain pump and the flapping of tho foresail, and she thanked him with both hands and a sweet smile. under a good southwesterly breeze tho yacht spun along merrily, throwing tho loam in long, beautiful, featherlike curves from her clipper stern. Tho lady stood leaning dreamily against tho side ropes, and tho prince, Jin PTDPT1pnPvi citlnr nviilontlT. - X - . WV.V.VUfcAV, the tiller and threaded the way careful- 1 it I- A.

"I will land you at Guernsey tomor row morning," he said, "but I have been deceiving you. I am not Prince Paul Demtoff. I am his valet I havo robbed him of 1,000,000 rubles and am now coine to tho Argentine in his yacht," and ho stood up rigidlv and faced her. Sho smiled and said calmly: "Verv good I Take me with you. I am not Lady Constance Azurcgore. I am her maid, but I've got her jewel case." Million. Sirs. ll"m. K. Baringcr Oliye IiiJge, N. Y.
