XVI Tho bomb is thrown, but the princo escapes to the castlo. Mnrlanx is in control of tho city. CHAPTER XVIII (Continued) "lib sends lila lovo and rescinds the order of exile," snld King, smiling, then seriously: "Marlanx lias taken tho city. It was nil n game, this get ting rid of you. The prince and tho others are besieged In the castle. Thank God. we got to you in time! Back hero n couple of miles we came upon a small gang of robbers. Wo had ft bit of shooting, niul, 1 regret to say, no one was bagged." "Loralue where Is she. King-?" "Don't tremble llko that, old man. Sho's safe enough In the castle. Oh, It was n "fine gauio Marlanx had In his mind I" While the troopers were making ready for the march Truxton King nnd Ilobbs related their story to eager, horrltled groups of officers. Finally tho battalion, augmented by the misguided company from the de serted railroad camps, moved swiftly Into tho defile, led by young Rabot. Truxton King rode beside the brother of the girl he loved, uttering words of cheer and encouragement. "The Countess Iugomede has any thing been heard from her?" asked Tullis. lie had been thinking of her for days and nights. "Willi, nothing definite," said King evasively. cnAi'TrTiTxix." i me iiKtunx "W-ROM tho highlands ml Monastery Ctiptnlu below the Haas and his men were able to study the sltuntlou In the city. The Im practicability of nil assault on any one of the stubborn, well guarded gates was at ouco recognized. A force of 700 men, no matter how well trained or how determlued, could not be ex pected t) surmount walls that had often withstood the attack of as many thousands. Tho wisdom of delaying until a few thousiuul loyal though poorly armed countrymen could be brought Into play against the city ap pealed at ouco to Prince- Dautun and John Tullis. Squads of men were sent without de lay into tho hills and valleys to cull the panic stricken, wnveriug funmys Into tho fold. .John Tullis headed the compauy that struck off Into tho well populated Ganlook district. Marlanx. as It realizing the nature of the movement In the hills, began n furious assault on the gates leading to tho castle. Tho watchers In tho hills could see as well as hear tho conflict that raged almost at their feet, so to speak. Tho next morning Captain Haas an nounced to his followers that Marlanx had begun to shell the castle. Itlg guus lu the fortress wcro hurling great shells over the city, dropping them In the park. Ou tho other hand, Colonel Qulnnox during tho night had swung three Galling guns to the top of the wall; they were stationed at Intervals along the wall, commanding every point from which an assault might bo expected. That night recruits from tho farms and villages began to straggle Into the camp. They were armed with titles, ordinary shotguns and unique blun- A Siory of GraustarK, By GEORGE BARR M'CUTCHEON c dcrbusses. swords, staves and aged lances. All were willing to dio In the' service of the little prince. By the close of tho second day nearly 3,000 men were encamped above the city. Late that night John Tullis rode Into camp at the head of a great company from the Ganlook province. lie had retaken the town of Ganlook. seized the fortress and recruited the entire fighting strength of tho neighborhood. More than that, ho had uullmbered and conveyed to the provisional camp two of tho big guns that stood nbove the gates nt the fortress. Marlanx trnlned two of his big guns dii the camp lu tho hills. From the fortress he threw many futile shells toward their place of shelter. TJicy did no damage; Instead of death, they brought only laughter to tho scornful camp. Under cover of night the two Ganlook cannons were planted In u po sition commanding tho southeastern city gate. It was the plau of the new besiegers to bombard this gate, tear ing it to pieces with shot. The knowledge that Marlanx had no big guns except those stationed lu the fortress was most consoling to Tullis and his friends. He could not destroy tho castle gates with shells, except by purest chance. He could drop shells into tho castle, but to hit a gate twenty feet wide? Never! Truxton King was growing haggard from worry aud loss of sleep. He could uot understand the abominable, criminal procrastination. He was of a race that did things with a dash and on the spur of the moment. His soul sickened day by day. Johu Tullis. equally unhappy, but more philosoph ical, often found' him seated upon a rock at the top of the ravine, an un lighted pipe In his Augers, his eyes in tent upon tho hazy castle. "Cheer up. King. Our time will come," ho was wont to say. Then came the night before the pro posed nssault on the gatfes. The guns wero lu position, aud the cannonading was to begin at daybreak. Truxton was full of tho bitterness of doubt and misgiving. Was sho In love with Vos Engo? Was tho count's suit progressing favorably under the lire of tho enemy? Was his "undoubted bravery having Its effect upon the wavering susceptibilities of the dis tressed LoralneV Tho sound of a voice in sharp com mand attracted his attention. There was a bright moou, and Truxton could see other pickets hurrying to Join tho first. A few moments later several trespassers were escorted through tho' Hues and taken directly to headquarters a man and two wo men. King observed. Johu Tullis was staring hard at the group approaching from the roadway. One woman walked ahead of her com panions. Suddenly ho sprang forward with a cry of amazement. It was the Countess Iugomede. Her arrival created a sensation. In a moment she was In the center of nu amazed circle of men. Tullis, after his first low, eager greeting at the edge of the tire circle, drew her near to tho warmth giving flames. Prince Dantau and Captain Haas threw rugs and blankets In a great heap for her to sit upon. Every one was talking at once. Tho countess was smiling through her tears. "Make room for my maid and her father. They are colder and more fatigued than I," sho said, lifting her tired, glorious eyes to John Tullis. who stood beside her. "Wo have come from Balak. They suffered much that I might enjoy the slender comforts I was so ready to share with them." "Thank God. you are here!" he said in low, Intense tones. She could not mistake the fervor lu his voice nor the glow lu his eyes. "I know you wero here, John. I am not going back to Count Marlanx. It Is ended." "I knew It would come, Ingoraede. You will let me tell you how glad I am some day." "Some day. when I am truly, wholly free from him. John. I know what foil will say. and I think you know rvhat 1 shall say In reply." Both un derstood and were exalted. No other word passed between them touching upon the thing that was uppermost in their minds. Food was provided for. the wayfar ers, and Tullis' tent was made ready for tho countess and her maid. The countess' story was soon told. Sitting before the great fire, surround ed by eager listeners, sho related her experiences. She had been seized on the night of tho ball as she started across her father's garden, and escape had bo come possible only through tho aid of Josepha nnd the girl's father. Farm ers' wives told them of the newly formed army and of its leaders. Sho determined to make her wny to tho camp of those who would destroy her husband, eager to give them any as sistance that her own knowledge of Mnrhuix's plans might provide. One bit of Information she gave created no end of consternation among tho would be deliverers of the city. It had the effect of making them all tho more resolute; the absolute necessity for Immediately regaining control In tho city was forced upon them. She told them that Count Marlanx had lately received word that the Grand Duko Paulus was likely to Intervene before many days, nctlng on his own Initiative, lu the belief that he could force the government of Graustark to grant the railway privileges so much desired by his country: Marlanx re alized that he would have to forestall the wily grand duke. If ho wero lu absolute control of the Graustark gov ernment when the Russian appeared he, and ho alone, would be In a posi tion to deal with the situation. "The grand duke may send n large force of men across the border at any time," said the countess In conclusion. "Count Marlanx Is sure to make n de cisive assault as soon as he hears that the movement has begun. Ho had hopes of starving them out, thus sav ing tho castle from destruction, but as that seems unlikely his shells will soon begin to ruin In earnest upon the dear old pile." Truxton King was listening with wide open ears. As sho finished this dreary prediction he silently arose to his feet and, without a word to any one, stalked off In the darkness. Tul lis looked after him and shook his head sadly. "I'll be happy on that fellow's ac count when daybreak comes nnd wo arc really at It," he said to Prince Dautun, who knew something of King's nflllctlon. But Truxton King was uot there at daybreak. When ho strode out of the camp that night he left It behind for ever. The unfortunate lack -of means to communicate with the occupants of the castle had been the source of great distress to Captain Haas. If the de fenders could be informed as to the exact hour of the assault from the out side they could do much toward Its speedy success by making a fierce sor tie from behind their own walls. A quick dash from the castle grounds would servo to draw Mnrlanx's atten tion In that direction, diminishing the force that he would send to check the onslaught at the gates. Truxton King had all this In mind as ho swung off down the mountain road, having stolen past the sentries with comparative enso. The dauger from Mnrlanx's scouts outside the city was not great; they had been scattered and beaten by Haas' recruiting par ties. He stood In more danger from the men ho would help, they who were the watchful defenders of the castle. It must have been 2 o'clock when he crossed the king's highway, a mile or more above he northern gates, nnd struck down Into the same thick un dergrowth that had protected him nnd Hobbs on n memorable night not long before. At ii o'clock a dripping figure threw up his hands obligingly and laughed with exultation when confronted by a startled guardsman Inside tho castle walls and not more than fifty -yards from the water gate, ne shouted a friendly cry as he advanced toward the man, calling out his own name. Ten minutes later ho was standing in the presence of the haggard, nerve racked Qulnnox, pouring into his as tonished ears the news of the coming nttack. The colonel lost no time In routing out tho sleeping guardsmen and reserves and 'In sending com mands to those already on duty at the gates. When the sun peeped over the lofty hills he saw Inside the gates' a rest less, waiting company of dragoons ready for the command to ride forth. Meantime King had crossed the grounds with Colonel Qulnnox on the way to the castle. He was amazed, al most stupefied, by the devastation that already had been wrought. A dozen or more balls had crashed Into the facade. Yawning fissures, gigantic holes, mark ed the path of tho ugly messengers from Marlanx." Nearly all of the win dows had been wrecked by riflemen who shot from tho roots of palaces in and about the avenue. Two of the smaller minarets were In ruins, A huge pillar in the lower balcony was gone. The terrace had been plowed up by a single rlcochettlug shell. "Great God!" gasped King. "It Is frightfult" "They began bombarding yesterday afternoon. We were asked to surren der nt !1 o'clock. Our reply brouglU the shells, Mr. King. "It was terrible. After the first two or three shells wo found places of shelter for the prince and his friends. They are In the stone tower beyond the castle. The most glorious courage is shown. Count Vos Engo guards the prince nnd the ladles of the household. Alas, It was hunger that we feared the most. To day wo should have resorted to horse's flesh. There was no other way. Wo knew tint relief would come someday. Johu Tullis was there. And now It Is s today! This shall bo our day, thank God!" Attendants sped to the tower, sho'it lng the battle tidings. The prince came tumbling down the narrow Iron stairs from his room above, shouting Joyously to Truxton King. No man was ever so welcome, lie was besieged with questions, hand shakings and praise -i. liven tho Duko of Perse, hobbling on : "itches, had a kindly greeting for him. Tears stream ed down the old man's cheeks when King told him of Ids daughter's safe arrival in the friendly camp. But jnpt now Truxton was staring at tho narrow stalrcuse. Vos Engo and Loraino were descending slowly. The former was white and evidently very weak. He leaned on the girl for support.
