M that after a whllo the severity of his

indded, "I bcllovo you loto mo, Ivan.

Ivan. "I lovo you better thnn nnj

Then In a gayer tono he went on:
"I lovo you so much that I will
pledgo my father's whole army to help

tako Hnhcnstcln. Kerns-berg nnd Ma-sj-
rlenfold. And after that, If you are
' still ambitious, why to Plassonburg
and tlio Wolfmark, which now the
Kxccutloner'a Ron holds. That would

"And for this you nsk ?"
"Only your love, I.ouls only your

"My slsler Margaret, you mean? I
will do what I can, Ivan, but she nlso
Is wilful. You know she Is wilful! I
cannot compel her love!"
Tho Prlnco Ivan laughed.
"I am not so complaisant ns you,
Louis, nor yet so modest. Give me

Sword Hand sleeps In the palace of
Courtlnnd, as Its princess, nnd I will

CHAPTER XII.
Woman's Wilfulness.
Joan rodo on, silent, a furlong bo
foro all hor men, llohlnd her sulked
Maurlco von Lynar. Had any been
thcro to noto, their faces wero now
strangely nllko Iti feature, and yet
moro curiously unlike In expression.
Joan gazed forward Into tho distance
Ilko a soul dead and about to bo re
born, planning a now life. Maurice
von Lynar looked moro llko n naughty
schoolboy whom some- tyrant Kntc,
rod-wlcldlng, tins compelled to obey
against his will.
Soon Castlo Kornaberg floated up
llko a cloud beforo them nboro tho
bluo and misty plnln. Hut net word
spoko Joan till that purplo tladow
had taken shnpo as stately sloi;o and

of Louis of Courtlnnd upon tho top

Then on n little mound without tho
town sho haltod and faced, about,
"Men of Hohcnsteln." snld the
Duchess, In a clear, fnr-reachlng nlto,
"you havo followed me, asking no

"It Is tho will of Joan or tho
Sword Hand! It Is enough!" repeat
cd tho four hundred lances, llko a
class Hint learns a lesson by rote.
A lump roso In Joan's throat as sho
tried to shapo Into words tho thoughts
that surged within her. Sho felt
strangoly weak. Her prldo was not

So nlso Jonn of Hohenstoln desired

So In her Castlo of Kontsborg Joan
waited. lint not ldl All day long
and every day Maurice von l.jnnr rode

erod to his word, nnd In the court

hills went to Htul fro, matching nnd

Hut there wero two, at least, with
in tho realm of the Duchess Joan who
Knew no drawbacks to their Jo), who
nibbed palm on palm ami nudxed each
other fur pure gladness. These (it Is
nail to say) w ie tho military attaches
of the neighboring peaceful Statu or

In tho presence of his wlfo Helcnc.

Instructions.
They promised faithfully.
Yet theso two soldiers of fortune
lay waiting on tho slopes of ihu Jn
gernbergen, talking over the situation.
"A man surely htui a right to. his
own wlfo!" snld Jorlnn, taking for tho
sako of nrgutnenl tho conventional
side.
"Narron-Posson, Jorlnn!" cried
Ilorls, raising his voice lo the Indigna
tion point. "Clotted nonsense! Who
Is going to keep a man's wlfo for
him If ho cannot do It himself?"
"Tho troublo Is that so far sho feels
no necessity to bo any one's wife,"
snld Jorlnn.
"That nlso Is nonsense," said Doris,
who, splto his defenso of Joan, held
tho usual masculine views. "Kvory
wnmnn wishes to marry. It sho can
ouly havo first choice"
'Thoro they como!" whlsporod Jo
rlau.
Ilorls roo to hit feet and looked
long beneath his hand. Very far away
there a roso from tho lord green
plain first ono Inll column of dense
black smoke nnd then another, till
ns far as they could co to tho left
tho plain was .full of them.
"(lod's truth!" cried Jorlnn, "Ihey

"Let us go down," said Ilorls, "or

"What do )ou horo? (Jo back!"
shouted Werner ton Onoln, who with
his men lay walling behind tho flood-1
banks of tho Alia. "This Is not vnur

"Wo hnvo for tho time being do

"You may inetid that rword shortly,
