CeLakodea'a Memoir Jt By EDWIN CASKODCN CHARLES MAJOR i OovurichU 1&8 and 1SOL, by tte Boiovn-MerrCU Company CHAPTER XIX. - - PROSEBFINA. iO the value received for Wol I sey's friendship to Brandon was Mary's promise to marry Louis. Mary wanted, to. send a message at , once to Brandon, telling him his life would be spared and that she had made no delay this time a fact of which she was very proud but the Tower gates would not open until morning, so she had to wait. She com pensated herself as . well as she could by writing a letter, which I should like to give you here, but it is too long. She told him of his pardon, but not one word upon the theme he so wished yet feared to hear of her promise never to wed any other man. Mary had not told hira of her final surrender in the ' matter of the French marriage, for the . reason that she dreaded to pain him and feared he might refuse the sacri fice. ' ' ii wui almost auu juuh, kuow, she said to Jane that night, 'land I - fear it is a false kindness I do him. He would, probably, rather die than that I should marry another. I know that I should rather die or have any-" thing else terrible to happen than for ntinther wnmnn tn rtnanoan him Tin lifl X I, 1 1J V , 1 1 promised me he never would, but sup--pose he should fail in his word, as I' have today failed in mine? The thought of it absolutely burns me." . And she threw herself into Jane's arms, and that little comforter tried to soothe her by making light of her fears. "Oh. but sunnose he should?" "Well, there is no need to borrow trouble. You said he promised you, and you know he is one . who keeps his Tvord.". r. "But I promised, too, and think of what I am about to do, Mary in heay en, help me! But he is made of differ ent stuff from me. I can and do trust his word, and when I think of all my , troubles and when it seems that I can- thought comes that no other woman will ever possess him no other woman, no other woman. I am glad that my. only comfort comes from iiim." "I hoped that I might have been some comfort" to you. I have tried hard enough," said Jane, who was Jeal- . OUS.. ' ''.'.; v , "Oh,' yes, my sweet Jane. You do comfort me, iou are like a soothing ,. bajmto an aching pain.", And she kiss ed the hands that held hers. This was . all that modest little. Jane required. She was content Jph a humble balm and did not aBpire to the dignity of an elixir. . ; ' ' . 'The girls then said their prayers in concert, and Mary gently wept herself , to -sleepy She lay dreaming and toss ing nervously until sunrise, when she letter-until I called tb take it. I was on hand soon after the Tower gates had opened and was permitted to see Brandon at once. He read Mary's letter and acted like every oth er lover since love letters first began. He was quick to note the absence of the longed for but not, expected assur ance, and when he did not Bee it went straight to the point. "She has , promised to marry the French king to purchase my life. Is that not true?" "I hope not," I answered evasively. ' "I .have seen very little of her,, and she has said nothing about it" "You are evading my question, I see. Do you know nothing of it?" "Nothing," I replied, telling an unnecessary- lie. "Oaskoden, you are either a liar or a blockhead." "Make it a liar, Brandon," said I, t laughingly, for I was sure of my place in his heart and knew, that he meant no offense. ... - I never doubt a friend. One would better be trustful of ninety-nine friends ' who are false than doubtful of one who is true. Suspicion and supersensltive - ness are at once the badge and the bane of a little soul. I did not leave the Tower until noon, and Brandon's pardon had been deliv- . erea xo mm oeiore i ieic xie was giau that the first news of it had come from Mary He naturally expected his liberty at once, and when told that be was to be nonoraDiy aexaineu ior a snort time turned to me and said: "I suppose they are afraid to let me out until she is off for France. King Henry flatters me." I looked out of the window up Tower street and said nothing. ' When I left, I took a letter- to Mary, which plainly told her he had divined' it all, and she wrote a tear stained an swer, begging him to forgive her for' having saved his life at a cost greater than Iier own. . TTnr coTdrn 1 ria-pg T waa Iron Vnatr carrying letters from Greenwich to the . Tower and back, again, but soon letters ceased to satisfy Mary, and she made up her mind that she must see him. Nothing else would do. She must not, could not and, In short, would not go another day without seeing him no, not anotner nour. Jane ana l opposed her all we could, but the best we could accomplish was to induce her for Bran don's sake for she was beginning to see that he was the one who had to suffer for her indiscretions to ask Henry'a permission, and if he refused, then try some other way. To deter mine was to act with Mary, so off she went without delay to hunt the king, taking Jane and me along as escort.' How full we were of Important busi ness as we scurried along the corridors, one on each side of Mary, all talking excitedly at once! When anything was to be done, it always required three of us to do it. We found the king, and without any Srelude Mary "proffered, hejrecuiest.. i ..Ma- . Mk4. 4u. At. .ftA,. J W W 'WTJ "W 'Wfr- .W- " FLOWER S orcourse it was "refused, r Mary pbuted and was getting ready for an outburst when Wolsey Kpoke up: "With your majesty's gracious permission, I would: subscribe to the petition of the prin cess. She has been good enough to give her promise in the matter of so much Importance to us, and in so email a thing , as this I hopayou may see your way clear toward favoring her. The interview will be the last and may help to make her duty easier." Mary gave the cardinal a fleeting glance from her lustrous eyes full of surprise and gratitude and as speaking, as a book . , Henry looked from one to the other of us for a moment and broke into a boisterous laugh. t , "Ob, I don't care, so that you keep it a secret. The old king will never know. We can hurry up the marriage. He Is getting too much already 400, 000 crowns and a girl like you. He cannot complain if he have an heir. It would be a good joke on the miserly old dotard, but better on'Ce Gros Garcon. " Mary sprang from her .chair with a cry of rage. "You brute! Do you think I am as vile as you because I have the misfortune to be your sister, or that Charles Brandon is like you simply because he Is a man?" Henry, laughed, his health; at that time being too good for him to be ill natured. He had all he wanted out of his Bister, so her outbursts amused him. ; Mary I hurriedly left the king ; arid walked back to her room, filled with shame and rage, feelings actively stim ulated by Jane, who was equally indig nant. Henry had noticed Jane's frown, but had laughed at her arid had tried to catch and kiss her as she. left, but she struggled away from ; him and fled with a speed worthy of the cause. This insulting suggestion put a stop to Mary's visit to the Tower niore ef fectually than any refusal could have done, and she sat down to pour forth her soul's indignation in a letter. She remained at home then, but saw Brandon later, and to good purpose, as I believe,; although I am riot sure about it even to this day. ' I took this letter to Brandon along with Mary's miniature the one that had been painted for Charles of Ger many, 'but had never been given and a curl of her hair, and it looked as if this was all he would ever possess of her' . . , : De ' Longueville heard of Henry's brutal consent that Mary, might .. see Brandon, and, with a Frenchman's be lief in woman's depravity, was exceed ingly anxious to, keep them apart To this end he requested that a member of his own retinue be placed near Bran don. To this. Henry readily consented, and there was an end to even the let ter writing. Opportunities increase in value doubly fast as they drift behind us, and now that the princess could not see Brandon or even write to him she regretted with her whole soul that she had not gone to the Tower when she had permission, regardless of what any one would sayor think. Mary was linperious and Impatient by nature, but upon rare and urgent occasions could employ the very smooth est sort of finesse. - Henry's, brutal selfishness in forcing upon her the French marriage, togeth er with his cruel condemnation of Brandon and his vile insinuations against herself, had driven nearly ev ery spark of affection for her brother from her heart But she felt that she might f eigh an affection she did , not feel, and that what she so wanted would be cheap at the price. Cheap? It would be cheap at the cost of her Immortal soul. Cheap? What she wanted was life's condensed sweets the man she loved and what she wan.ted to escape was life's distilled bitterness marriage with a man she loathed. None but a pure woman can know the torture of that. I saw this whole disastrous cam paign from start to finish. Mary began with a wide flank movement conducted under masked batteries and skillfully executed. She sighed over her- troubles and cried a great deal, but told the king he had been such a dear, kind brother to her that; she would gladly do anything to please him and advance his Interests. She said it would be torture to live with that old creature, King Louis, but she would do it will ingly to help her handsome brother, no matter how much she might suffer. The king laughed and said: "Poor old Louis! What about him? What about his suffering? He thinks he is making such a fine bargain, but the Lord pity him when he has my little sister m his side for a thorn. He had better employ some energetic soul to prick him with needles and bodkins, ror I think there Is more power for disturbance in this little body than in any other equal amount of space in all the universe. You will furnish him all the trouble he wants, won't you, Bister?" "I shall try,", said the princess de murely, perfectly willing to obey in everything. "Devil a doubt of that, and you will succeed, too, or my crown's a stew pan." And he laughed at the huge joke he wa3 about to perpetrate on his poor old royal brother. It would seem that the tremendous dose of flattery administered by Mary would have been so plainly self inter ested as to alarm the dullest percep tion, but Henry's vanity was so dense and his appetite for flattery so great that he accepted it all without sus picion, and It made him quite affable and gracious. , Mary kept up her show of affection and docile obedience 'for a week or two until she thought Henry's . suspicions were allayed, '. and then, after having .dpao jenouch Dettina A.d. f ondUnje. as she thought, ,tp. start the earth Itself a-moving as some men are foolish enough to say it really does he began the attack direct1 by putting her arms about the king's neck and pi teously begging him not to sacrifice her whole, life by sending her to France. ( Her - pathetic, soul charged appeal, might have softened the heart of Calig ula himself, but Henry was not even, cruel. He was simply an animal so absorbed in himself that he could not feel for others. ( "Oh, it is out at last!" he said with n laugh. "I thought all this sweetness must have been for something.' So the lady wants her Brandon and doesn't want her Louis, yet Is willing to obey her dear, kind brother? Well, we'll take her at her word and let her obey. You may as well understand, once and f or; that you are to go to France., You promised to go1 decently If I would not cut off that fellow's head, and now I tell you-that If I. hear another whim per from you off it comes, and you .will go to France too." This brought Mary to terms quickly, enough. It touched her one vulnerable spot her love. ,' . T .will go; I promise it again. You shall never hear another word that no harm shall come to him to him." And she put her hands over her face to con ceal her tears as she softly wept. "The day you sail for France Bran don shall go free and shall again have his old post at court I like the fellow as a good companion, and really beliero you are more to blame than he." ; ' v "I am all to blame, and am ready this day to pay the penalty. ,1 am at your disposal , to' go when and where you' choose," answered Mary most pathet ically. ' ! Poor, fair Proserpina, with no kind mother Demeter to help her. The ground will soon open, and Pluto will have his bride. That evening Cavendish- took me aside and said his master, Wolsey, wished to speak to me privately at a convenient opportunity. So when the bishop left his card table an houV later I threw myself In his way. He spoke gayly to me, and we walked down the corridor arm in arm. I could not im agine what was wanted but presently it came out: "My dear Caskoden'f had I been one for whom he could have had any use I should have grown suspi cious "my dear Caskoden, I know I can trust you; especially when that which I have to say ,1s for the happi ness of your friends. I am sure -you will never name me in connection with the suggestion I am about to make, and will use the thought only as your I did not know what was coming, but gave hira the strongest assurance of my trustworthiness. , , "It is this: Louis of France Is llttl better than a, dead man. King Henry, perhaps, is not fully aware of this, and if he Is he has never considered the probability of his speedy death. The thought occurred to me that although the princess cannot dissuade her broths er from this marriage, she may be able, in view of her ready and cheerful com "My dear Caskodent I know X cati trust you." pliance, to extract some virtue out of her sore necessity and induce him to promise that in case of the death of Louis she herself shall choose her sec ond husband." "My lord," I replied, quickly grasping the point, "it is small wonder you rule this land. You have both brain and heart." "I thank you, Sir Edwin, and hope that both may always be at the serv ice of you and your friends." ; I gave the suggestion to Mary as my own, recommending that she proffer her request to the king in the presence of Wolsey, and, although she had little faith or hope, she determined to try. Within a day or two an opportunity offered, and she said to Henry: "I am ready tOgo to France any time you wish, andtshall do It decently and will ingly, but If I do so much for you, brother, you might at least promise me that .when King Louis Is dead I may marry whomsoever I wish. He will probably live forever, but let m have at least that hope to give me what ; cheer It may while I suffer." ; , The ever present Wolsey, who; was j standing1 near and heard Mary's peti tion, interposed: "Let me add my pray er to that of her highness. We must give her her own way in something." Mary was such a complete picture of wretchedness that I thought at the . time she had really found a tender spot in Henry's hert, for he gave the prom ise. ' Since then I have learned, as you wlH shortly, that it was given sim ply to pacify the girl, and without any intention whatever of Its being kept, but that, in case of the death of King Louis, Henry intended again to use, his sister to his own advantage. To be .a beautiful princess is not to enjoy the bliss some people imagine. The earth is apt to open at any time, and Tluto to snatch her away to-the Lord knows where. : Mary again poured out her soul on paper a libation intended for Brandon. I made a dozen attempts in as many different ways to deliver her letters, but every effort was a failure, and this missive met the fate of the others. De Longueville kept close watch on his master's rival and coinplalned to Hen ry about these attempts at communica tion. . Henry laughed and said.hejvroulJ ; see that they were stopped," but paid no more attention to the matter. It Mary, before her. interview; with Henry, had been averse to, the French marriage, sire was now equally anx ious to. hurry it on and longed to go upon the rack in order that Brandon might be free.' , He, of course, .objected as strenuously as. possible to the pur chase of ;;, his life by her marriage to Louis but his better judgment told him In f act, . had told him from the first that she would be , compelled eventually to marry the French king, and common sense told him If it must be she might as well save his. life, at the same time. Furthermore, he felt a certain sense of delight in owing. hia life to her, and knew that the fact that she had saved him, that her sacrifice had not all been In yaln, would make It easier for her to bear. - The most beautiful feature of the re lations between these two, lovers was their entire faith in each other. The way of their true love was at least not X'oughened by cobblestones of doubt, however Impassable It was from moun tains of opposition. My Inability to deliver Mary's letters did not deter her from writing them, and as she was to be married in a few days De Longueville to act as proxy she devoted her entire time to her let ters and wrote pages upon pages, which she left with me to be delivered, "after death," as she called her marriage. At 'this time T was called away from court for a day or two, and when 1 re turned and called upon Brandon at the Tower I found him whistling and sing ing, apparently as happy as a lark. "You heartless dog!" thought I at first, but I soon found that he felt mora than happiness exaltation. "Have you seen her?" I asked. "Who?" f As if there were more than one woman in all the world for him. "The princess." "Not since I left her at Bristol." -' I believed then, and believe now, that this was a point blank falsehood, a very unusual thing for Brandon, but. for some reason probably necessary In this case. There was an expression in his face which I could not Interpret, but he wrote, as if carelessly scribbling on a scrap of paper that lay upon the table, the words, "Be careful," and I took the hint we were watched. There Is an unpleasant sensation when one feels that he is watched by unseen eyes, and after talking for awhile on common topics I left and took a boat for Green wich. When I arrived at the palace and saw Mary, what was my ' surprise to find her as bright and jubilant as I had left Brandon. ' She, too, laughed and sang and was so happy that she light ed the whole room. v What did it all mean ? There was but one explana tion. They had met, and 'there was some new plan on foot with a fatal ending. X The next failure would mean death to Brandon as certainly as the sun rises in" the east. What the plan was I could not guess. With Brandon in the Tower under guard both day and night and Mary as closely guarded in the palace,' I could not see any way of escape for either of them, nor how they could possibly have come together. Brandon bad not told ineV I supposed, for fear of being overheard, and Mary, although she had the opportunity, was equally noncommunicatlve, so I had recourse to Jane upon the first occa sion. She; by the way, was as blue and sad faced as Mary was joyous. I asked her if the princess and Brandon had met, and she sadly said: "I do not know. We went down to London yes terday, and as we ! returned stopped at Bridewell House, where we found the king- and -Wolsey.: The princess left the room, saying she would return tn a few Ellhutes, and then Wolsey went out, leaving me alone with the king. Mary did not return for half an hour,rand she may have seen Master Brandon du ring that time, t do not understand how the; meeting could have occurred, but that is the only time she has been away from me." Here Jane , deliberately put her head on my shoulder and began to weep piteously. "What is the trouble?" I asked. She shook her head: "I cannot, dare not, tell you." . "Oh, but you must, you must!" And I Insisted so emphatically that she at length said: T ' "Thriving!" "The king! God in heaven, Jane; tell me quickly!" When urged, Jane said between her sobs: "He tried to kiss me' and to mis treat me when Wolsey left the room at Bridewell House. I; may have been used to detain him while Mary met Master Brandon; but if so,, I am sure she knew nothing of it" "And what did you do?" "I struggled away from him and snatched this dagger from my breast, telling him that if be took but one step toward me I would plunge it in my heart, and he said I was a fool." "God keep you always a fool!" said I prayerfully. "How long has this been going on?" v "A month or two. But I have always, been able to run away from him. He has been growing more Importunate of late, so I bought a dagger that very day and had it not one hour too soon." With this she drew out a gleaming lit tle weapon that flashed in the rays of the candle. , , This was trouble in earnest for me,' arid I showed it very plainly. Then Jane timidly put her hand in mine for the first time in her life and murmured: "W will, be married, Edwin, if you wish, before we return from France.' She was glad to fly to me to save her self from Henry, and I waB glad even to be the less er of two evils. As to whether my two friends met or not that day; at Bridewell I cannot say, but I think they did. They had In stne way come to an understanding that .lightened both their hearts before Mary left for France, and "this had been their only possible opportunity. Jane and I . were always taken into their confidence on other occasions, but as , to this meeting. If any there was, we have never been told a word. My belief is that the meeting was con trived by Wolsey upon a solemn prom ise from Brandon and Mary never to reveal It, and if so they haye sacredly kept their word.

The girl remained on the jtrain and before it pulled, , out he swung on again. They went on to Pittsburg and there were caught. More complete descriptions had been sent ahead. The father of the girl had igone to Baltimore and had learned by Inquiries that a girl; resembling, his daughterhadbeen there and had taken, the train for Washington. Telegraph ic inquiries there revealed the fact that tie girl had not left the train. The supposition- was that they would arrive, in Pittsburg that evening.
