aide, who explained brieily that they had
entered the Chateau to demand acoimmo
dation for the Emperor and hi* staff; that
I hud opposed eutraneej and that without
provocation had viciously attacked the
Colonel. To this version the Colonel weakly
agreed. The Kaiser turned to me.
••You say my Colonel insulted the lady?”
including in his glance Aimee, who stood
on the stairway overcome with the embar
rassment of her position and the preeace
of tin- German ruler.
*Tb* put his arm abnnt her.” 1 replied, 1
my anger rising again,“and endeavored to
kiss her. Ask the lady herself.”
*TS it true. Mademoiselle?”

Colonel* who cringed before this rebuke.
”1 have issued specific orders avoid
just such improprieties. You tire under

and await further orders.” Tima to the
aide—“ See that he is attended by the I

A‘ they passed tit rough the g'-ent door

also applaud the gallantry of your -your -

bowed again to Aimee and strode out iu'oj
the sunlight, followed by his orderly who
had been standing tit tiie door.
I ran to Aimee and took her in my arras,
comforting her in the way of a lover.
Uut she seemed not to be afraid. On tie*
contrary she was quite serene, expressing i
her confidence in the Kaiser's assurance
“Is he not a grand man?” she asked.
‘•Stub dignity; such magnificent bearing;
what lire shone in his eyes I And oh.my i
brave sweetheart,” patting my cheeks lov-j
lugly, “how like a lion yon were. 1 shall j
never be afraid with you near me.” So we
went on for a delicious half hour, when a
detachment of the Emperor’s bodyguard,
under command of a sergeant of mag- ,
nificent proportions, entered the dooryard ,
and took up their positions around the !
house Then Aimee retired to her rooms on
the second floor, ami I sallied forth to
learn something of the military situation.
1 hav said that 1 was well acquainted ,
in Berlin, so it was not surprising, that!
I should run across friends. Hardly hail
I left the Chateau when I came face to
face with a portly, red-bearded officer, lean
ing against a tree and contentedly smoking
a long-stemmed pipe. I b*Md out my hand,
smiling my recognition.
“Lowenberg!” I exelaltned In delight.
“It is really you.” He was a Colonel of
Hussars, and I had beaten him at chess
many and many a time.
For full a minute he stared mo in the
face. Gradually his features relaxed.
Then a roar of laughter shook kis paunch.
He snatched my outstretched hand and
clasped it in both his own. Tears ran
down his cheeks.
“Oh, my dear # Adams, my dear Adams.”
he cried between peals of laughter. “What
manner of fancy doll is this? I sec you
in Berlin, attired cn rigeur. gravely dis
cussing tariffs and values. I hurry to tin*
front to fight, and find you strutting about
the grounds of a French Chateau, clad in
velvet and bice, like a medieval fachion
plate. Oh, you changeable Americans.
What next, what next?”
Ah. my brave Lowenberg! he was ever
a fine friend. How my heart ached* when,
a few weeks later, I saw him stretched
upon a heap of straw, both legs shot away
in that descent into the hell of Montepelier,
and dying as a German warrior can die,
with a prayer for bis country and a smile
for his friends.
In a few minutes I told Lowenberg of
the events of the past few days, hinting,
however, that I had started from Amiens
in tin air-ship, bent on a pleasure trip.
I learned that the German forces were
forming to the west of us, and that a col-
.. pjM^.
lislon was certain to take place within a
week. He insisted that 1 remain with
them. "It will be a great fight," he said,
his blue eyes sparkling with enthusiam.
I protested that 1 had no clothes.
"Tut. What of that? You shall have a
uniform. You shall ride with me. Ho!
Grossman.” He culled to a subordinate
officer, gave him brief instructions, and sent
him away. An hour later, at the Chateau,
after a seance with the regimental tailor.
I was rema-’o converted at once into a
German Lieutenant of Ilnssars; but to
Aimee’s great disgust.
"Oh. shame, shame,” she cried, making
a wry face. You are now my enemy. I
do not know you at all.” And so I had to
begin all over again with ray love making,
in which delightful proceeding I was
eminently successful, though it took me a
full hour, and required, in addition to
manjv many kisses, a solemn promise that
I would dispense with the odious uniform
at the earliest possible moment.
Early In the evening the Emperor and
his staff came to the Chateau a-d - ’ '
arrangement for their aeeoßQtnodAacß.
Every precaution was taken to avoid ia
jur* to the building and its contents.
I was deeply Impressed with his Majesty s
consideration In thlg matter. Cajivas
I panllns were spread over the carpets and
draped around the marble mantles. Such
furniture as remained was drawn to one
side and covered. Small cots were brought
in, with tables, map cases, and other neces
sary Impediments, and through the night
a council of war was held, plans being laid
for the disposition of the troops. There
i being nothing for me to do there, I saw
; that Aimee was well cared for, and spent
the evening with Lowenberg and a group
of fellow officers, in their quarters, dis
missing the military situation and spec
ulating as to the outcome of the war.
During the evening Lowenberg referred
casually to my trip from Amiens and my
wreck in the trees, which subject produced
Immediate Interest.
“Lucky for you—that accident,” said
Meschner, Captain of Lancers, who fell a
fews days later in the Argonne valley.
"There were two others in an air-ship who
fared not so well, eh, Lowenberg?”
Lowenberg nodded, musing over his pipe.
|My heart leaped. Was it possible that they
1 had seen me clinging to la Jaune as sh'"
bounded, like an affrighted deer, from the
German guns in Lorraine? With tense
nerves and an appearance ,of unconcern I
waited for the next remark.
“By God,” broke out a heavy voire,
“that was a terrible end for the French
general.” It was Fleischraann speaking,—
the gigantic sergeant of tlie Emperor’s
bodyguard, whose strength and eonrag
later saved me at Montepelier. He ros
suddenly to his feet and pointed upward
“I saw him falling for miles." he said.
“At first a tiny speck, then coming nearer,
arms and legs beating the air. Ah, heaven!
What a smash it was. He f 11 upon a
stuck of rifles, yon remember,” turning
to the others, who sat open-mouthed, for
Fleischraann was a born actor, and in his
gestures and facial expressions brought out
clearly the horror of Martini’s descent in
to the midst 'of the encamped troops.
"He was torn apart; he was split into
fragments; his brains splattered twenty i
feet away." Then, with a French shrug
of his great shoulders, —“Bah, what of it?
Death is death, come as it may.”
“There was another,” observed Lowen
berg, speaking deliberately as ho refilled
his pipe. "He fell In the midst of Wasser
uian’s kitchen.” He shook with laughter
as the picture came back to him. and throw
ing back his head blew the smoke from his
mouth in great rings.. “I shall remember
it always. The man was already dead,
shot through the head; but down he came
like a cartload of fresh beef, right into
the huge cauldron of soup that was cook
ing for Wassermau’s bearded darlings. Ha,
ha. ha. They fed on bread and cheese that
night. There was soup spread over an acre
of ground.
I dared not break the period of silence
that followed, though my anxiety was be
numbing. Then Fleischraann spoke, an
swering the questiou that was uppermost
in my mind.
“Fine shooting.” he broke onf suddenly.
“It. was Gerstner’s battery that brought
them down—he sighted the guns himself.
He tells me—oh. the liar—that he aimed
for the cables supporting the basket, and
cut them, by God. It was au unlucky trip
for the two Frenchmen.”
The TWO Frenchmen! Then they did not
suspect a third member of the party. 1
ventured nu inquiry.
“And what became of the bag?”
“Oh, it blew away to the northeast. I
suppose it fell in some Prussian field.”
God be thanked! Then they did not
know. For had these excitable Germans
guessed that I was with Martini and
Kechere, rcconnoitering the German ad
vance, they would have branded me for
a spy and my life would not have been
worth a pfenig.
I was heartily glad when the conversa
tion changed and the Incident of the bal
loon was forgotten. Moreover I was eager
to learn something of the military situation.
The French were known to be far to the
southwest —forty miles or more away—
thoir right resting on Rar-10-Pnc. their
left at the camp at Chalons. This gave
them the support of an extensive area of
wooded hills to the left, and right, and the
Marne river, with its high banks, at the
rear. In front extended the great Cata
lonian plain. It was an admirable position,
and one of great natural strength. There
fore they showed no disposition to ad
vance, preferring, apparently, to await at
tack by their opponent, though all north
ern France lay open to the invaders.
All that day and the next the Germans
continued to arrive, crossing the Meuse,
ascending the heights, and moving west
ward. Some two hundred thousand of the
flower of the army were there, actually
treading French soil, ready for whatever
might come. Infantry, artillery, cavalry;
all splendidly equipped and accoutered. It
seemed to me that they must prove nn
conquerable; that they would advance with
irresistible determination; that I-ranee
would inevitably be compelled to sue lor
I saw the Emperor seldom. He was en
craved much of the time in council, and my
acquaintance with him was not of such a
nature as to permit interruption. When
I met him he merely acknowledged my
salute. I doubt that at first fie recognized
In the German Lieutenant of Hussars hts
American friend, Adams. A circumstance
arose about the fourth day ofWhis presence,
however, that Illustrated in a striking man
ner his_ keen re mem Iterance, his attention
to details, and his belief in discipline.
Reports had come in of the presence of
a French scouting party at a small village
some distance to the south. A company of
cavalry was sent out, and Lowenberg was
ordered to observe and report. We arrived
just in time to sec the French put to rout,
though the action was sharp and spirited.
It was the first real fighting, and the ex
citement set our nerves to tingling. On the
return a man was seen skulking in the edge
of the woods friuging the road. Our
troopers captured him and brought him
along. When we reached headquarters he
was summoned for examination.
1 glanced at him casually as Lowenberg
put the usual questions. XJien I rose to
my feet with a gasp. I could not Ive mis
taken. The large, clear-cut features, the
heavy beard, the speaking eyes; there was
no doubt of his identity, it was Latour,
the correspondent of “La Vie.” from whom
1 had received report of the declaration
of war at the Club in Paris. Recognition
was mutual, but neither of us betrayed it.
Latour <ie< lared in provincial French
that he came from a rural district near
by; that he was ou his way to the village
when he heard the shots, and fearing in
jury left the road. His story, couplr-d with
his peasant dress, might have sufficed to
clear him, but when they came to search
him I knew that lie was doomed. A book
of notes iu shorthand which none of us
could read proved that he was not a
peasant; a wallet containing a consider
able sum in gold further complicated the
situation; and a carefully drawn map of
the German positions, found in the band
of his drawers, proclaimed his mission. He
was a spy.
“What is the next step?” I asked of
Lowenberg, as the two corporals led Latour
“Report to the Emperor: execution.” He
spoke without feeling, as was natural.
Rut my heart was heavy.
“It is too bad,” i said. ‘Tie looks like
a fine man.”
“On the contrary,” he replied sharply.
"It is good. They shot two of our scouts
yesterday. Why not retaliate? A fine man?
Vcs, perhaps, but* it is the fortune of war—
he has made the mistake of being cap
It chanced that as I entered the Chateau
late that night 1 met the Kaiser. 11;•
stood at the door, looking gravely out into
the glorious moonlight, lie was alone,
and I thought his expression nobler than 1
had ever before seen ou the face of man.
He asked after Aimee. I replied that sin*
was well, but that 1 thought it best to
send her north to her cousins. I had made
arrangements for carriages for herself an 1
servants. He said that he would give na
an order of safe conduct, and calling a
secretary had one written out.
I spoke of the bitterness of war. of the |
Ikss of men and property, of the inevitable |
severance of personal and commercial ties. '
“It seems to me to be so futile a war," I
said. "What is to lx' gained? why resort
to violence and bloodshed? think of the
enormous expense and the re lilting in
crease of taxes. Why not arbitrate, your
Majesty? ’
The Kaiser's expression hardened. “It is
sometimes recessary in life to assert one's
dignity by force," be said, after a period j
of silence. “I represent a great nation. ;
We have been mocked, trampled, spit upon, j
We have borne insults to the point of mad- !
ness. It is time to strike back. This very
day messages came to me from your great
President Roosevelt, whose influence in
the affairs of the world is undeniable, and
from the King of England, my Uncle. !
They suggested arbitration. I replied that
I proposed first to administer punishment,
using what, in your country, you are
pleased to term ‘the big slick’, the club,
the hand of castigation. Is this m>t their
own policy in the last stages of disagree
ments? Remember Cuba, and the Trans
vaal. No. it is too early for arbitration.
There will be two great battles. One, on
land, is before us; the other on the sea,
will occur within a fortnight. Then, and
not tmtil then, will the Emperor of Germany
listen to intervention.”
I could make uo reply. The argument
was conclusive.
Then Latour, the spy. came into my mind.
“Your Majesty.” 1 said, “a Free h spv

at Menigny.”
lie waved his hand impatiently. “I know.
Tie was caught red-handed, lie had notes —
maps. He dies at sunrise.
“He is my friend.” I said simply. “I
have known him for years—a splendid
“Is he any less a spy?" The words came
suddenly, like bullets from a gun. “Yet
you would have me set aside the rules of
; war because he is your friend. Understand,
young man, that your own position is none
too secure.” He leaned toward me with
I uplifted, warning finger. “There is room
for explanation, for instance, as to how it
happens that you start from Amiens ou a
pleasure trip, in a French war-balloon, la
Jaime by designation, and coming from the
west are wrecked in yonder tree;” he
pointed to the white case of the balloon,
that fluttered in the night wind high in the
great oak behind the Chateau, "when the
basket of that same balloon, containing a
French General of Staff and a wireless
telegraph, drops within the German lines
far to the east, in Lorraine. Were it not
for your nationality, tomorrow's sun might
look* down upon your own body as well as
that of Latour’s lying dead before a squad
of infantry.”
“Then Latour must die?” I asked. T was
pleading without hope. For myself I feared
“Latour must die. It is the rule of war—
a rule not to be broken.”
He turned away to speak to an approach
ing officer, and I climbed the steps to my
room. My dear friend —my poor Latour.
In the night I was awakened by my valet.
Before I could arise Lo wen berg burst Into
the room. “We are to advance iinmedi
; ately." he said. “A surprise party. wMth
i probable sharp fighting. I want you with
me. Come at once.”
1 dressed with all haste. Aimee was
asleep and I would not waken her. I wrote
her a hasty note, explaining the arrange
ments for her departure, giving it to her
maid. Hurrying down to the courtyard I
found tny horse stamping with impatience
i to be off. Five minutes later Lowenberg
; and 1 wore galloping along the main road to
the west. In the moonlight we could see
the glitter of helmets and sabres. The
earth trembled with the tramp of men and
horses. The very air quivered with Impend
ing violence. We were in the midst of war.
