Here dwelt f.be most iui-! portant man In the principality, not excepting the devoted prime minister himself. Not that Perse was so' well beloved, but that be held the destinies of the land iu Midas-like fingers. More than that, be was the father of the far famed Countess Marians, the ; most glorious beauty at the Austrian aud nusHlan courts. She had gone forth from Graustark as its most notable bride since the wedding day of the Princess Yetive. late In the nineties. Ingomede, the beautiful, bad Journeyed far to the hymeneal altnr. The hus band who claimed bor was a bated, dishonored man in hiB owfflnnd. There were those who went so far as to say that her father bad delivered her Into the hands of a latter day Bluebeard, who whisked her o'ff into the high lands, many leagues from Vienna. She was seen no more in the gay courts for a year. Then of a sudden she appeared before them all. as daz zlingly beautiful as ever, but with a haunting, wistful look in her dark eyes that could not be mistaken. The old count found an uneasy delight in ex hibiting her to the world once more, plainly as a bit of property that all men were, expected to look upon with envy in their hearts. . Then the Duke of Perse resumed bis residence In ' Edelweiss, opening the old palace once more to the world. His daughter after the death of the prin cess began her extended visits to the home of ber cirlhood. ' So Ions as the princess was alive she remained away irom Eaeiweiss reluctant to meet the friend who had banished her husband long before the wedding day in Buda pest Now she came f reouentlv anil stayed for weeks at a time, apparently nappy aunng these escapes from life in the great capitals. Of late she came more frequently to Edelweiss thnn before. John Tullls was always to remember the moment when he looked unon this exnulttite creature for the first time. That was months ago. After that he never ceased being a secret silent worshiner at her transient shrine. ' Ten o'clock on this rnlnv nltrht n carriage has drawn up before the low er gates to the Perse irrounda. niul n tall, shadowy figure loaves it to burry wrougn tne snruD lined walks to the massive doors. Tullls had long since ceased to be a welcome visitor In the bume of the Duke of Perse. The men were openly unfriendly to each other. Th dnko resented the cool Interference of the sandy haired American: ou the other band, 'Tullls made no effort to conceal bis dislike, if not Ul!trust. of the older man. The countess was alone in the long, warm tinted library. ' "it is cood of rou to come slu nnlri as they shook bauds warmly. "Do you know It Is ii I niOH t a rear since von Inat came to this house?" "It would be a centurv. countess. If I were not welcomed In other bouses where 1 am sure of a glimpse of you rrom time to time aud a word now and then."

"I have been so bold on occasion as to assert-for your private ear. of course -that you could not by nny freak of nature happen to care for Count Mar lanx, whom 1 know oifly by ' descrip tion. You have laughed at my so called American wit. aud you have been most tolerant Now, I fuel that I am Justified.. I'm immeasurably glad to hear you confess that you do not love four husbaud." "You have never tried to make love to me," she went on. "That's what 1 like about you, I think most men ore silly, not because I aib so very young, but because my .husband is so ridicu lously old. Don't you think so? But never mind! 1 see you are quite eager to answer. That's euough. Take an other cigarette nud-llsten to what 1 am going to say." He declined the cigarette with a shake of his head. After a moment alio weut on reso lutely:.

But he la not a man to serve his hatred with mere idle words and inaction.. , "I am seeing you here in this- big room openly." she went on. "for the simple reason tbat if I am belug watched this manner of meeting may be above suspicion. We may speak freely here, 'for we cannot be beard unless we raise- our voices.

"That's why I am afraid. If be Is plotting against the crown, you may depend upon it be Is laying bis plans well. John Tullis, that man Is a devil a devil Incarnate!" She turned ber face away. A spasm of utter re pugnance crossed her face. "1 am afraid of Peter Urutus. He Is here to watch everybody." She leaned against the great carved mantel post, a tall, slender, lissom creature, exquisitely gowned In rarest Irish luce, her bure neck and shoulders gleaming white against tbe dull tim bers beyond, the faint glow frW the embers creeping up to her face with the insistence of a maiden's flush. He gazed in rapt admiration, bis heart thumping like fury In bis great breast She was little more thnn a girl this wife of old' Marlanx, and yet how wise, how clever, bow brilliant sbe was! She was well named Ingomede the Beautiful. "Does Baron Danglosg know this man Brutus?" asked Tullls. arising to stand beside her. "1 don't know," she said thought fully. "I have not spoken to him con cerning Brutus. Perhaps be knows. The bnron is very wise. Let me tell you how I happen to know that Peter Urutus is aril I serving Count Marians and why I think bis presence signifies a crisis of some sort" Her voice, always low and even, seemed lower still. "In the first place, I have a faithful friend in one of the oldest retainers at Scbloss Marlanx. His daughter U my maid. She Is bere with me now. Tbe old man came to see Joseplni one day 'last week. He had accompanied Count Marlanx to tbe town of Bulak, which Is in Ax phalli, a mile beyond the Graustark Hue. Peter Brutus was with my bus band In Baluk , for two days. They were closeted together from morning till night in tuo bouse where Marlanx was stopping.

The colonist rush this spring is breaking all records, say the reports from stations on the main lines of rail roads. Trains are loaded to the plat forms and running in three and four sections. Homeseekers are arriving in Portland at the rate- of over 2000 a day, and hundreds are stopping off at stations east of that city. Many are coming into Wallowa coun ty. Friday's train brought la over a. score, some getting off at each sta tion in the valley. The majority of the arrivals Friday were Skandina vians from Minnesota and the Dako- tas. It is estlmatedby the railroad offic ials that 60,000 "colonists will come to Oregon during, the. continuance of rates in March and April. Of that number fully three-fifths will remain and make- homes in, this state. The rush Is so much greater than' expected that the problem in Port land Is how to take care of them, and the commercial bodies have taken the matter in hand and will organ ize bureaux of information and den all things possible to give the newcom ers a hearty welcome, and whatever assistance In matter of selecting a location that la needed. As to the latter however, little is needed for nearly all know just what they want to do and- where they wand to go. H. H, Weatherspoon was re-elected mayor of Elgin Monday, having a ma jority of 4 over D. Sommer. Bonds for $10,000 for city hall and fire eta tlon were voted. Minimum saloon license of $1,000 carried. morning. He wore a disguise, hut Jacob says be could 'not be mistaken. Moreover, be was accompanied by sev eral men whom be recognized as Grau-' stark - mountaineers and hunters of rather unsavory reputation. They left Brutus at tbe gates of Balak and went off Into the bills. All this happened before I knew tbat Peter was living in Edelweiss. When I saw blm here I knew at once tbat bis presence meant something sinister. 1 cau put many things together that once puzzled me tbe comings aud goings of months, the secret reports and consultations, the queer looking men who came to the castle, tbe long absences of my hus band and my my own virtual Impris onmentyes. Imprisonment. I was not permitted to leave tbe castle for days ot a time during his absences." "Surely you will not go bock again!" be began botly. "Sb!" Sbe put a finger to her lips. A manservant was quietly crossing tbe ball just off tbe library, "lie is a new man. I do not like bis appear ance."' Tbe servant disappeared through a door at the end of tbe hall., "Then there were tbe great suras of money that my busband sent off from time to time." she continued, "and tbe strange boxes that came overland to tbe castle aud later went away again as secretly as tbey came. Mr. Tullls, I am confident In my mind tbnt those boxes contained firearms and ammu nition. I have thought It all out. Per bnps I am wrong, but It seems to me thut I can almost see those H rear urn stored away lu tbe caves aud cabins outside of Edelweiss, ready for Instant use wbeu tbe signal comes." "God! Au uprising! A plot so huge as tbat!" be gasped, amazed. It Is for tunate tbnt be was not facing the door Tbe same servant, passing once more, might bave seeu tbe telltale coiisterua tlon lu bis eyea. "It cannot be pokmi ble! Why, Dangloss and his men would bave scented It long ago" "1 have not snid tbat I am sure of anything, remember tbat. I leave tt to you to analyze. You bave tbe foun dation on which to work. I'd udrlxp you to waste no time. Something tells me tbat tbe crisis Is Dear at baud." CHAPTER Til. .. AT THE WITCU'S HUT. IN the meantime our excellent young friend.
