The League of Lost Causes « Being the Romantic Adventnrea of Paul Lane, American Millionaire By H. M. EGBERT fl A Dutch Music Lesson (Copyright. IMS. by HAVE been expecting you for some days, Mr. Lame," said Lord Claude Tresham, when the young American stood before him In the li brary of his mansion on Park lane, London. "I learned some time that you had ceased to be associated with the League. Sit down and tell me precisely why." Paul Lane answered with some ve hemence: "1 waB, as you probably know, In deed to place my services and my for tune at the League's disposal by Her Highness Princess Clothilde," he be gan. "I Bay 'service and fortune,' al hough I believe that only the latter was required by the minds at the ^back of the organization. At first I was unaware of this. I threw myself With enthusiasm Into the cause." ''That enthusiasm of you Americans Will yet be the cause of your country's downfall," answered Lord Claude. "But pleas« pardon the interruption. You found things different from what you had been led to expect?" "Yes. I had been told that the League was an international associa tion for promoting the principles of monarchy. I found it to be an anarch istic body, controlled by men of whose identity I was never Informed. I worked In the dark, and they spent my money—some three millions of dol lars—also in the dark. Finally, when the princess proposed that I should or ganize a conspiracy against my own country, which would have led to the absorption of all the Pacific coast states by a hostile power, I severed my connection. And so—" "You have come to me to offer to place your services and your knowl edge of affairs at the disposal of the counter-organization?" said Lord Claude. "I think you have acted wise ly, Mr. Lane. The League Is nothing but a criminal society, led by some of the younger and least influential of Europe's rulers. Under the cloak of devotion to monarchy—and no one be lieves more In that principle than I, for I am secretary of what Is called, I believe, the Black Cabinet of Rulers— as I was saying, Mr. Lane, under this pretense the League has united all the criminal and anarchistic elments In Europe against the established order of society. I welcome you and trust that we shall deal with you more frank ly than your late friends did." Lord Claude dismissed Paul Lane cordially soon after, promising to call upon him as soon as the need for his services developed. Paul went back to his quarters in Piccadilly aflame with enthusiasm. The frankness of Lord Tresham had pro duced a very different effect from that created in hiB mind by the evasions of his late allies. Since his failing out with the Princess Clothilde hiB life had seemed wholly empty and un profitable. He had thought at first of returning to America to resume charge of the huge corporation built up by his father. But the experiences that he had undergone while in the service of the League had made the life of an American business "king" seem tame and stale, and the memory of the princess burned always in his heart, so that, though he had re nounced her, he could not bring him self to leave the sphere of her activ ities. Even though In deadly enmity, he always looked forward to meeting her again. The summons from Lord Claude came more speedily than either man had anticipated. When, a few morn ings after, Paul went to the secretary's house by invitation, he found him pac ing the floor of his study In what in xny other man would have been mark id agitation. In Lord Claude, how sver, this mood evinced itself only by i sharper manner of speech than his Habitual drawl knd certain nervous novements of the hands. "I am glad you have come so prompt ly, Mr. Lane," said Lord Claude. "I «ant you to go upon a mission of the ttmost delicacy. I have not forgotten tow you outwitted me in the matter of the kaiser's visit to Paris, when you sere with our enemies, and If any man tan clear up this situation. I know you U ago He handed Paul a cigarette, lit It, xnd resumed. "Trouble Is brewing In Holland— rery serious trouble. Her Majesty Queen Wllhelmlna, as you doubtless are aware, when she ascended the throne at the age of eighteen, became fascinated by the ideals of the League, snd for a time assisted In Its councils Later, when her eyes had been opened to the true nature of this body, she withdrew from all participation In Its schemes, thereby Incurring the dead y hostility of the society. You are aware, of course, that her majesty vls ts Berlin on the fifth, In order to dis cuss with the kaiser the proposed fortl Icatlon of Flushing, a measure which he has inspired, and which gives cause lor considerable anxiety to England. "Certain patriots of Holland, consid *ring that the queen, In visiting Ber lin, has betrayed her country, are plan ning a counter-measure, aided, of ourse by the ubiquitous League. What this is we do not know. We know only one fact—that it is to center around the Princess Juliana, her majesty's five-year-old daughter, and heir to the Dutch throne. It may be the plan to proclaim her queen in her mother's lace; it may be something more das tardly. That Is what we have to dis cover—and we rely on you to do it. "There is no fear of a coup d'etat, for. during the queen's absence, to gether with her husband, the palace will be guarded by two regiments of loyal troops. What treachery is planned must be consummated by stealth. Your task will be to go o the palace, arriving on the fifth, im mediately after her majesty has left. You will remain there until the eighth, cne hour before the queens return. W. a. Chapman.) the ihe, of course, knows nothing of this. You will deliver your credentials to Herr Von Orobelaar, the Dutch tnlnla tetr for home affairs, who will be In attendance at the palace; you will take up your quarters there and will keep the Princess Juliana constantly under your supervision. "Now, my dear Lane, there Is a very unfortunate Incident In this af fair. The notorious Princess Clothil de, of Austria, who la well known to be connected with the League, has been Installed at The Hague for sev eral weeks as the Princess Juliana's music teacher. She has completely won the favor of Queen Wllhelmlna, and all representation» made to her majesty on this point have been fruit less. When the queen's mind Is made up. nothing can shake her. In that respect she is a true Netherlander. And her majesty, unfortunately, has most complete confidence In the Princess Clothilde. So you will have to regard the princess as an enemy within the gates. Von Grobelaar will doubtless post you on all necessary matters. You can trust him Implicit ly. Good morning, Mr. Lane. You will report to me here five days hence at the same hour." Lord Claude handed Paul his cigar ette case again, lit a cigarette for him, and bowed him to the door. In Bplte of the nonchalance of Jiis demeanor. Paul felt that Tresham was seriously alarmed as to the outcome. The thought of meeting Clothilde again, matching himself against her. sent the blood coursing wildly through Paul's veins. He hurried home, pack ed his suit-case, and caught the next train for Harwich, , whence a fast steamer landed him In Holland on the following morning. That afternoon he reached The Hague and he drove at once to the palace, and was soon In consultation with Vop Grobelaar. The minister proved to be a resolute, tried old man of about seventy years. He welcomed Paul without the slight est formality, and anxiously read through the credentials which Lord Tresham had furnished him. Then, with a grave mien, he asked him to be seated. "I have received a communication from Lord Tresham," he said. "He has described you thoroughly, both in features and manner, so that I am confident that you are the person whom you represent yourself to be. You will appreciate the necessity of these precautions when I tell you that Hol land Is facing the greatest crisis In all her checkered history. Its pre cise nature Is still unknown to us, but we know enough to be aware that It centers upon the Princess Juliana, and It will be effected tomorrow evening, as soon as the news is telephoned to The Hague that her majesty has rati fied the treaty which is now pending with Germany. Your task will be to guard the little princess. You are to act under my orders aB the prlnceBS' guardian until her majesty returns. In particular, you are to watch scrupu lously the Princess Clothilde, who Is quite well known to be an agent of the League, and who, unhappily, was placed in charge of the princess' mu sical tuition by her majesty, In spite of all our representations. "Come, now," he added, "and I will introduce you to her highness." With a beating heart Paul followed the old minister along the main corri dor of the old-fashioned, rambling pal ace, until they entered the royal apart ments. Sounds of a child practicing scales were heard as soon as the heavy swing doors were opened, and Von Grobelaar led Paul Into the music room, where, seated upon a high stool, the royal princess was fingering a small keyboard with her tiny fingers, under the direction of Clothilde, who sat beside her on a straight-backed chair. The entrance of the two caused an Immediate cessation of the lesson. The child princes» looked round curiously; the other princess, she of Austria, rose and stood looking at Paul defiantly. Her face was deeply flushed, and Paul could see that her own agitation al most equaled his own. He made an obeisance to the child automatically, and then heard Von Orobelaar begin the laborious formula of a Dutch In troduction. "Mr. Lane and I are old acquaint ances." murmured Clothilde, Inclining her head. "Mr. Lane is to be assistant super visor of her highness during her ma jesty's absence," said the old gen tleman. Paul mumbled something which seemed appropriate at the time. What it was he could not afterward recall. In spite of his resolutions, the sight of the woman whom he had once loved devotedly, and whom, he knew, he loved, in spite of his volition, still, had completely overcome his self-posses sion. He walked to her side like a man in a dream, and In the same me chanical fashion went through the process of introduction to the chief nurse, Vrouw Leldermeer, a stout, mid dle-aged person of apparent capabil lty. men and two women to attend labor! ously upon the wishes of a child that devoted its pampered day to playing with an enormous collection of toys— bricks, dolls of all kinds—and throw ing them aside as It grew tired of each But to Paul the situation was fraught with ghastly mockery. It was not un til the little princess was safely in bed, under the guardianship of the capable nurxe, that Paul found himself for a few momenta alone with Clo During the remainder of that day the They seemed inspired by mutual distrust. Under other circumstances, it would have seemed comical to Paul for two four never left one another. thllde. She glanced round with a furtive movement, as though the suspicion In the air had communicated Itself to her own gesture!: then she came ap Paul. tc I "Monsieur, 1 learn that you have left j the League." she said, in a tone of In ■ quiry which startled him. For surely I Clothilde must have been aware of his ! :own action In the matter of the at-j ! tempt on the Pacific squadrou: of his relations with Tresham. She seemed - to read his thoughts , ] "I. too, am no longer connected with It," she said. "Monsieur, I, too. was un able to acquiesce In the demands made upon me. So now, you see me here, a j revolutionary turned courtier, a hum bie music teacher to the Princess Ju ! liana." She was trying to disarm his suspi cions; Paul saw that, and though he strove to conceal % hls knowledge of It. he could see that she knew. "Monsieur Lane Is still suspicious of me?" she asked mockingly. She came close to him and stood look ing ap at him, her arms at her sides, her Upe temptingly close. "Mon sieur has not repented of the harsh and cruel words he said to me when we met last?" In another moment he would have caught her In his arms. But Just then the door opened and the minis ter came slowly In. The princess start ed round, an angry look upon her face; then, recovering her self possession with amazing swiftness, she buret Into laughter. Her words stung Paul to the quick. He felt the overpowering Influences of her presence, he was disarmed against \ "m \ f, ii® ' V Ilf v V ! / * m î V « t| Ill « jtei WI wm 7 & m 2 I %■$> n m r civ im 1• i A t j X V Mi I n f Vu V £ i l - II wm j ii in iV I int. !j| I i m V JblirryiTOKHiV 1 i l/i & 3 î Ttiô côtier princess, she of Austria, rose and stood lookir ?9 at Paul defiantly. hts will.

Have you Paul?" "I was just telling Monsieur Lane," she said, "that I am a revolutionary turned courtier. I believe that Mon sleur suspects me of complicity In the plans of the conspirators." Schooled as he was In diplomacy. Von Grobelaar could not help starting This was the first allusion made in the palace, except in his own talk with Paul that morning, to what everyone knew. "But let me say, Mynheer," went on Clothilde, "that I, for one, hope with all my heart that the German treaty will be ratified, and that tomorrow night we shall hear the good news by telephone. And In proof of my own j good intentions. I request that, as soon as the new. Is verified, Her Highness 1 the Princess Juliana may be permitted to play the Dutch National anthem ! upon the old state harpsichord In the : 1 you, mademoiselle," said royal museum." "Thank Von Grobelaar coldly. "1 am sure that the museum can be placed at your dis- I posai If you desire it. object to our presence, I trust?" he added with Insulting humility.

"Now, I wondet^ what deviltry Is afoot," said Von Grobelaar thought [fully. "You do not trust herT' ask' d Paul, [shaken with miserable doubt. Von Grobelaar advanced and placed his hand in a kindly fashion upon the shoulder of the younger man.

Paul." "And how about her majesty queen*" asked Paul with some itidi« - nation. ] Von Orobelaar smiled wearily 'Her [majesty is—Holland," he answered "And Holland must be preserved Come. Mr laine, forgive an old man's j outburst, and let me see you to your sleeping quarters You were not I think, informed that they are those oc cupled by her majesty herself when she Is in residence here, and that they command the approach to the Princess Juliana's room. Lock your door and take this pistol." He drew a serviceable weapon from his pocket and handed It to Paul "Put you are not likely to be called upon to use it."' he added, "for two thousand loyal sol dlers are at this moment under arms in The Hague and command all ap proaches to the palace." ! It would be difficult for any man to Bleep soundly after receiving such In formation, and Paul was no more phlegmatic than most men. lie did not even undress, but resolving to b«' faithful to hla trust, he started In to spend a watchful night. Hla first step was to assure himself that Von C.ro belaar's statement as to the location of the prince*» room was accurate His first search was for the royal mu seum, and this be found to be upon the floor below his, and almost Immediate ly beneath his apartment, except that, being of considerably larger size. It extended beneath the apartments of the princess and her nurses devoted to the storage of articles and objects of no special Intrinsic value, but much prized on account of their historical associations Among these It was was the old harpsichord which was said to have been used by William of Orange, afterward William III of England, and to which Clothilde had evidently referred. But why had the Princess Clothilde selected this as the Instrument on which her Infant charge was to play He resolved to examine the harpsl chord In order to determine whether It could be reasonably associated with the design of Clothilde, For that, de spite her denial, she was the center of be entert»ln«-d no the Dutch national anthem? the conspiracy, doubt whatever.
