CHAPTER XIV (Continued) In n few minutes loud curses came from the vlver, proclaiming the fact that the pursuers lintl found the empty boat. Afterward they were to learn thut Newport's shouts had brought a boat load of men from tho opposite bauk, headed by tho Innkeeper, in whoso place I.ornlno was to have en countered Marians Inter on, If plans had not miscarried. By this time King had located tho open space which undoubtedly afford ed room for tho transfer of enrgoes from tho dock to tho company's yards Inside the walls. Without hesitation lie drew her nfter him up this wide, Mnlster roadway. The pursuers were trying for . land ing, noisily, even boisterously, It i truck Truxton ns queer that theso men were not afraid of alarming tho watchmen on tho docks or the man at the gate above.. Suddenly It came to him that there would be, no one there to opposo the landing of tho miscre ants. No doubt hundreds of men al ready had stolen through these gates during the night, secreting thCmselves In the fastnesses of the city, ready for tho morrow's fray. They rushed up the narrow railway chutes and through one of the numer ous gateways that opened out upon the barge docks. No one opposed them. No oue was standing guard. From be hind came the sound of rushing foot steps. Lightning (lashed In tho sky, and the rumble of thunder broko over the desolate night. "They'll see us by the lightning," gasped Truxton. almost ready to drop from falutncss and exhaustion. following n vivid Hash of lightning, two shots were tired by the, men who were now plunging up through tho gates, n hundred yards or more away. Tho same Hash of lightning showed to King the narrow, muddy street that stretched ahead of them. Instead of doing the obvious thing he turned faharply to the left, between tho lines of freight cars. Their progress was slow. At last they came to the end of their rope. They were literally up against the great city wall. A car door stood open In front of them. Ho waited for a second flash of lightning to reveal to him the na ture of Its Interior. It was quite emp ty. Without hesitation ho clambered In and pulled her up after hlni. They fell over on the tloor, completely fag Kid. A few minutes later the storm broke. Ho managed to clo.-,e tho door against the driving torrents. ' e'vo fooled them," he managed to whisper close to her car. "They won't look here. You're safe, Loralne. Gad. I'd like to see any ouo got you nway from me now!" Sho pressed his arm. Then sho was fast asleep. He sat with his back against the side of the car, a pistol In ouo hand, the other lying tenderly upon the drench ed hair of tho girl whose head rested upon his leg. She had slipped down from his shoulder. Ho did not have the desire or the energy to prevent It. Manfully as he had fought against tho Impelling desire to sleep, ho could not beat It off. His last waking thought was of tho effort ho must make to reach Dangloss with tho warulug. boniotniiig stirred In the far end of veiling space, so quietly that "a mouso could have made but little less noise. An Instant later the bluish llamc of a sulphur match struggled for life, growing stronger nnd brighter in tho hand of u man who stood above tho sleepers. I CHAPTER XV. THE Cllsr. IN' Tllfi IlKD CLOAK. NSIDE of an hour after the re turn of the frightened, quivering groom who had escaped from tho brigands in tho hills Jnck Tullis was granted permission by the war department to take n hundred picked men with him in the effort to over take and cap'ture the abductors of his sister. The dazed groom's story hard ly had been told to the horrjfled broth er beforo ho was engaged In telephon ing to General Braze and Baron Dan gloss. A hurried consultation fol lowed. Baron Dangloss was sadly upset. Three prominent persons had been stolen from beneath his nose, so to speak. He was beside himself with rnge and dismay. This last outrage was the climax. Tho old man adored the sister of Jack Tullis. He was heartbroken and crushed by tho news of the catastrophe. Captain Unas of the dragoons was put in chargo of the relief party. Tho party wns armed and equipped for a bitter chase. Word had been sent to Serros, the capital of Dawsbergcn, asking the assistance of Prince Dan tan in the effort to overtake the ab ductors. A detachment, it was an nounced lu reply, wns to start from Serros during tho afternoon bound for the eastern passes. Baron Dangloss rode to the southern gate with the white faced, suffering Tullis. "We will undoubtedly receive a communication from the rascals this afternoon or tomorrow," he said gloomily. "They will not bo slow to make a formal demand for ransom, knowing that you nnd your sister are possessed of unlimited wealth. Hello! Who's this?" . A man who had ridden up to the gates, his horse covered with foam, was demanding admission. The ward ers halted him unceremoniously as Dangloss rode forward, They found that he wns one of tho foremen in the employ of the railway construction company. Ho brought the disquieting news that another strike had been de clared, that the men were ugly and determined to tear up tho track al ready laid unless Jhelr demands were cousiuereu anil, rurtnerinore, that there had been severe fighting between the two factions engaged on tho work. He urgently implored Dangloss to send troops out to hold the rioters in check. "What is your name?" demanded the harassed minister of police. "Poison," replied the foreman. lie lied, for he was no other than John Cromer, the unsavory husband of Anna Cromer of the committeo of ten. "Come with me," said Dangloss. "Wo will go to General Braze. Good by and good luck, Tullis." At that very moment Loralne Tullis was comparing notes with Truxton King in the room beneath the armor er's shop. Count Marlnnx wns hiding In the trader's iuu outside the northern n position toglve them trouble or un easiness. The liOth dawned bright and cool nfter the savage storm from the north. "I don't like the looks of things," said Baron Dangloss time and again. Ills men were never so alert ns today and never so deceived. "There can't be trouble of any sort," mused Colonel Qulnnox. "Theso fel lows are ugly, 'tis true, but they are not prepared for a demonstration." "Colonel, we'll yet see the day when Graustark regrets the economy that has cut our little army to almost noth ing. What have we now nil told? Three hundred men In the royal guard, fewer than COO in the fortress. I have a hundred policemen. There you are. Today there are nearly 200 soldiers off in the mountains on nasty business of one sort or another. Gnd, If these radians from the railroad possessed no more than pistols they could give us a merry light. There must bo a thou sand of them. I don't like It. We'll have trouble before the day's over." By 11 o'clock the streets in the neighborhood of the plaza were pack ed with people. At 12 tho castle gates were to be thrown open for the brilliant cavalcade that was to pass between these cheering rows of people. Shortly after half past 11 o'clock cer tain groups of men usurped the posi tions In from of certain buildings on the south side of ths square, a score here, a half score there, others below them. They favored the shops op erated by the friends of the commit tee of ten; they were the men who were to take possession of the rifles that lay hidden behind counters and walls. From tho distant castle came tho sounds of shouts, crawling up the long line of spectators, for the full length THEY SLEPT. HOW TIRED THEY WEEK I gates. The abductors" themselves were scattered about the city, laughing tri umphantly over tho success of the ruso that had drawn tho well feared Amer ican nway on n wild goose chase to tho distant passes of Dawsbergcn. More than that, at 5 o'clock in the afternoon a second detachment of soldiers left tho city for' the scene of tho riots In the construction camps, twenty miles away. Surely the well laid plans of tho Iron Count were being skillfully car ried out! All afternoon and evening men strag gled in from tlio hills and surrounding country, apparently loath to miss the early excitement attending tho cere monies on the following day. Sullen strikers from tho camps came down, cursing; the company, but drinking noisy toasts to tho railroad nnd Its fu ture. Tho city by night swarmed with reveling thousands. The bauds were playing, the crowds were singing and mobs were drinking and carousing in tlio lower end. At ,. o'clock In tho morning word flow from brothel to lirntlipl. lYnni 'lodging houso to lodging house, In all parts or me slumbering city. A thou sand men cropt out into tho streets nfter tho storm, all animated by one Impulse, nil obeying n single fierce In junction. They were to find nnd kill n tall American! They wcro to keep him or his companion from getting in touch with tlio police authorities or with the royal castle, no matter what the cost! At fl o'clock a stealthy whisper went tho rounds, reaching the ear of every vagabond and cutthroat.engagcd in the' UIltlrlllL' Vlpil T.ll-n CMinV-r. (linn f.,,lrwl Mm nnfn ..1111 .....II ..!

A heavy, breathing of tho town that It was no longer nee body crept stealthily across tho Inter- essnry to maintain tho watch for Truxton King. He was nojpuger in of the avenue to the eager throng In Regengetz circus, swelling and grow ing louder as the news camo that the prince had ridden forth from the gates. Glad voices cried out tidings to those in the background. The prince was coming! Bonny, adorable Prince Robin! On camo tho splendid phalanx of guardsmen, followed by rigid infantry men in measured tread. The great coach of gold, with its half score of horses, rolled somberly beneath na ture's canopy of green, surrounded on all sides by proud members of the royal guard. Two carriages from the royal stables preceded the prince's coach. In the first wcro the Duke of Perse and three fellow members of the cabinet. The second contained Baron Dangloss and General Braze. The curtains lu a house at tho cor ner of the square parted gently. A hawk faced old man peered out upon the joyous crowd. His black eyes swept the scene. A grim smile crept h'to his face. He dropped the cur tains and walked away from tho win dow, hissing a cigarette into a grate on the opposite side of the loom. Then he looked at his watch. The man who stood in the middle of the freight car looking down In wonder at the fugitives wns a tall vagabond of the most picturesque typo. No raga muffin wns ever so tattered and torn as this rakish individual. His clothes barely hung together on Ills lank frame. Long, thin lips curled into a smile of delicious regard. Ills sides shook with the quiet chuckle of understanding Ho was thinking of other days aud nights and of many maids In faroff lands and of countless journeys in which he, too, had had fair aud gentle company short journeys, yes, but not to be forgotten. Ho lighted the stub of a tallow can dle. Ah, how envied this great, sleep ing wayfarer! How beautiful his mis tress! How fortunate the lover! They slept. How tired they were! Whence had they come? Why should ho stay here to spoil their waking hour? No. He would surrender his apartment to them. Softly ho tiptoed to his own corner of tlio car. He gatl ; M up his be longings an nncient violin case, n stout walking stick, a goodly sized pack done up in gaudy cloth, a well worn pair of sandals with long, frayed lacings. As gently ho stole back to the door. He tossed a kiss to the sleeping girl, his dark gypsy face aglow with admiration and mischief, and was about to blow out tho light of his candle. Then ho changed his mind. With a determined shako of his head and a now Hash of tho eye, ho calmly seated himself nnd began to open his ragged pack.
