By Georgo Barr McCutchcon
CHAPTER I Truxton King arrives

IV King iuvades tho royal park,
meets tho princo and is presented to tho
lull's fascinating Aunt Lorainc.
V Tho committee of' ten, conspir

against tho princo.
VII, VIII, IX and X King visits tho
houso of tho witch of Oanlook gap and
meets tho royal household there. Ho

in a door, and while searching for tho
person ho is overpowered and dragged
into n loft. Ho is confronted by Count
Marlanx and then taken to tho under
ground den of tho committeo of ten.
XI Olga defends King beforo tho
committee of anarchists.
XII Loraino is brought to the den
and thrown into tho sanio room with
King.
XIII King fells a jailer, dons li is
clothing, and, disguised, carries Loraino
into a boat at night in which several of
tho anarchists are about to depart.
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'

thing alive that moved with tho uu-l The word had sped to every corner
most wariness. 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.
