These things were nothing to her

Jfd his ambition Were they the same
as Stenovlcs Even a novice at the
game could see that this by no means
followed of necessity The king was
elderly and went afishlng The prince
wag young and a martinet In age Ste

twenty years younger than the king a
dozen or so older than the prince Un

had no such power over twentyeight
New to such meditations yet with a
Ihad J pleasure in iJemJqt into fee
troubled waters as though born a Swim
mer Sophy thought and watched and
looked about As to her own part Bho
was clear Whether Rastatz was right
Whether that most vivid and indelible
memory of hers was wrong were ques
tions which awaited the sole determi
nation of the Prince of Slavna I
Her attitude would have been un
changed but her knowledge much in
creased could she have been present
at a certain meeting on the terrace of
the Hotel de Paris that same evening
Markart was there and little Rastatz
whose timely flight and accommodating
memory rendered him today not only a
tree man but a personage of value But
neither did more than wait on the
iWords of the third member of the party
rthat Colonel Stafnltz of the hussars
Who had an old feud with Mlstltch for
Jhom Mistitch had mistaken the
prince of Slavna A most magnani
mous forgiving gentleman apparently J
this spare slim built man with thought
ful eyes His whole concern was to
get Mlstltch out of the mess The feud
1 seemed to remember not at all It
Was a feud of convenience a feud to
swear to at the court martial He waD
D ready to accommodate Stenovics
nth the use of his name as Rastatz
J fc to offer the requisite modifications
Qf his memory But there with that
supply of a convenient fiction his pli
ability stopped He spoke to Markart
using him as a conduit pipethe words
could flow through to General Ste i
novics I
IIIf the general doesnt want to see
me nowand I can understand that heI
mustnt be caught confabbing with any I
supposed parties to the affair you I
must make it plain to him how matters
stand Somehow and by some means
but dear Hercules must be saved Her
cules is an ass but so are most of the
J men and all the rowdies of Slavna
Whey love their Hercules and they
wont let him die without a fight and
a very big fight In that fight what
might happen to his royal highness the
commandant And if anything did
happen to him what might happen to
General Stenovlcs I dont know that I
either but It seems to me that hed b e I
in an awkward place The king I
ouldnt be pleased with him and we I
here in Slavna are we going to trouble i
Ourselves about the man who couldnt
save our Hercules
Vf Round faced Markart nodded in a
perplexed fashion Stafnltz clapped i
him on the shoulder with a laugh
t For heavens sake dont think about
r1t or youll get it all mixed Just try to
remember it Your only business is to
report what I say to the general
Rastatz sniggered shrilly When the
Wine was not in him ho was ay cunning
Uttlo roguea useful tool In tiny mat 1
tar which did not ask for courage I
ii If Id been here Mlstltch wouldnt I
have dono the thing at nllor done it j
better But whats done is done and

TENOVICS watt Indeed in a quan
STENO Mlstltch had precipitated
an unwelcome and premature
Crisis The ministers deliberate
slow moving game was brought to a
sudden issue which he was not ready
to face It had been an essential fea
ture t ft governing prule Qf his campaign
totQ avoid ando i2 conatckwith the
Prince of SlaVna until an occasion
then f
king would be on his side The king
was a power not merely by reason of
his cheaply won popularity but also
because he was while ho lived the
only man who could crown Stenovics
operations with the consummation to
Which the minister and his ally Count
ess Ellenburg looked forward + lth dis <
tant yet sanguine hope The army was
with him now but the other factdr
was lacking The kings pride as well
1as his affection > was enlisted in his
cons Interest Moreover this occasion
Mlstitch wits no tetter than an as
U sassln To take up arms on his behalf
Igracefulone which would make sure
cess very difficult and smirch It forever
1 and beyond remedy even If it came It
was no cause in which to fight both
prince and king That would be play
ing the big stake on a bad hand as
Stafnltz put It
Yet the alternative Stafnitz agaliJ
had put that clearly The armywould
have no more to do with the man who
could not help itat the pinch whp
could not save its favorite who could
not release Barabbas
I The prince seemed to be in big mOEt

I no secret about that but said plainly
that ho would sooner be beaten by a

The first meant for him defeat perj

Meanwhile Slavna waited in omi

1 was SO stormy that King Alexis had
no heart for fishing
IOn Friday morning tho day before
that appointed for Mlstitchs trial the
names of the members of the court
were published The list met with the
reception which was to doubt antlclj
