RiYutm-Merrttt Company CHAPTER V. AN HONOR AND AN ENEMT. SCAT or two after tbta Bran don wai commanded to an audience and presented to tlie king and queen. He was now eUfrible to all palace entertainments and would probably have many Invita tions, being a favorite with both their majesties. As to his standing with Mary, who was really the most Impor tant figure socially about the court, t could not exactly say. She was such a mixture of contradictory Impulses and rapid transitions, and was so full of whims and caprice, the Inevitable out growth of her blood, her rank and the adulation amid which she had always lived, that I could not predict for a day ahead her attitude toward any one. She had never shown so great favor to any man as to Brandon, but Just how much of her condescension was a mere whim, growing out of the Im pulse of tbe moment and subject to reaction, I could not tell. I believed, however, that Brandon stood upon a firmer foundation with this changing, shifting quicksand of a girl than with either of their majesties. In fact, I thought he rested upon her heart itself. But to guess correctly what a girl of that sort will do or think or feel would require inspiration. Of course most of the entertainments given by the king and queen included as guests nearly all the court, but Mary often had little fetes and danc ing parties which were smaller, more select and informal These parties were really with' the consent and encourage ment of the king, to avom tne respon sibility of not inviting everybody. The larger affairs were very aun, ami smaller ones might give offense to those who were left out. lue laiter, therefore, were turned over to Mary. who cured very little who was offend ed or. who was not, and invitations to them were highly valued. One afternoon a diiy or two after Brandon's presentation a message ar rived from Mary notifying uie that sue would have a little fete that evening in one of the smaller halls and direct ing me to be there as master of the dunce. Accompanying the message was note from no less n person than tne i princess herself, inviting Brandon. This was an honor nitieeu an auto graph invitation from the hand of Ma ry! But the masterful rascal did not seem to consider it anything unusual. and when I handed him the note upon his return from the hunt be simply read it carelessly over once, tore it in pieces and tossed it away. I believe the Duke of Buckingham would have given 10,000 crowns to receive such a note and would doubtless have shown it to half the court In triumphant con fidence before the middle of the night. To this great captain of the guard It was but a scrap of paper. He was glad to have it, nevertheless, and with all his self restraint and stoicism could not conceal his pleasure. Brandon at once accepted the Invita tion in personal note to the princess. The boldness of this actually took my breath, and it seems at first to have startled Mary a little also. As you must know by this time, ber "dignity royal" was subject to alarms and quite her most troublesome attribute very ipt to receive damage In her relations With Brandon. Mary did not destroy Brandon's note, despite tbe fact that her sense of dig nity had been disturbed by it, but after she had read it slipped off Into her pri vate room, rea4 it again and put it on her escritoire. Soon she picked it up. reread it and, after a little hesitation, put It in her pocket. It remained in the pocket for a moment or two. when out It came for another perusal, and then she unfastened her bodice and put it In her bosom. Mary had been so In tent upon what she was doing that she had not seen Jane, who was sitting quietly in the window, and when she turned and saw her she was so angry, she snatched the note from her bosom and threw it upon the floor, stamping her foot in embarrassment and rage. "How dare you watch me, hussy 7" she cried. "You lurk around as still as the grave, and I have to look into every nook and corner wherever I go or have you spying on me." "I did not spy upon you. Lady Mary," aid Jane quietly. "Don't answer me! I know you did! I want you to be less silent after this. Do you hear? Cough or sing or stum ble; do something, anything, that I may hear you." Jane rose, picked up the note and of fered it to her mistress, who snatched It with one hand while she gave her a hnm slr with the other. Jane ran Lt I l . . i .,11 ...me nn.1 ttlmmp. UUL, li 1111 .!

Ihmm lioraalf rlnwn to pout In the course of five minutes she turned her head for one fleeting in.rnr and looked at the note, and ihpn. after a little hesitation, stole ! over to where she had thrown lt and picked it up. Going back to the light ! at the window she held it In her hand 1 a moment and then read It once, twice, thrice. Tho third time brought the smile, and tbe note nestled In the bosom again. ! Jane did not come off so well, for ber mistress did not speak to ber until she ; called her in that evening to make her toilet By that time Mary had forgot ten about the note in her bosom; so when Jane began to array ber for the 'dance lt fell to the floor, whereupon ' both girls broke Into a laugh, and Jane 1 kissed Mary's bare Bhonlder, and Mary i THE WINDHAM COUNTY REFORMER, FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 190 kissed tbe top of Jane's head, and they were friends again. ' So Brandon accepted Mary's invita tion and went to Mary's dance, but bis going made for him an enemy of the most powerful uobleman in the realm, and this was the way of it: These parties of Mary's bad been go ing on once or twice u week during the entire winter and spring, and usually included the same persons. It was a sort of coterie, whose members were more or less congenial and most of them very Jealous of Interlopers. Strange as it may seem, uninvited persons of ten attempted to force themselves in, and all sorts of schemes and maneu vers were adopted to gain admission. To prevent this two guardsmen with halberds were stationed at the door. Modesty. I might say, neither thrives nor Is useful at court When Brandon presented himself at the door, his entrance was barred, but be quickly pushed aside the halberds and entered. Tbe Duke of Bucking ham, a proud, self important indivldu al, was standing near the door and saw lt all. Now. Buckingham was one of those unfortunate persdns who never lose an opportunity to make a mistake, and. being anxious to display his aeal on behalf of the princess, step ped up to prevent Brandon's entrance. "Sir, you will have to move out of this," bo said. pompously. "You are not at a Jousting bout You have made a mistake and have come to the wrong place." , , , "My lord of Buckingham is pleased to make rather more of an ass of him self than usual this evening," replied Brandon, with a smile, as he started across the room to Mary, whose eye be had caught She bad seen and beard it all. but instead of coming to nis re lief stood there laughing to herself. At this Buckingham grew furious and ran around ahead of Brandon, vallaat ly drawing bis sword. "Now, by heaven, fellow, make but an other step, and I will ruu you through!" be said. I saw it all. but could hardly realise what was going on. it came so quickly and was over eo eoon. Like a flash Brandon's sword was out of Its sheath and Buckingham's blade was flying to ward tbe celling. Brandon's sword was sheathed again so quickly that one could hardly believe it Tiad been out at all, and. picking up Buckingham's, be said with half smothered laugh. "My lord baa aroppeo nis swuru. Be then broke its point with his beel against the. bard floor, saying. "1 will Bull the point lest my lord, being unac customed to Its 05, wound himself." This brought peals of laughter from everybody. Including tne kiug. Mary laughed also, but. as Brandon was banding Buckingham bis blade, came up and demanded: "My lord, la this the way you take it upon yourself to receive my guests? Who appointed you. let me ask, to guard my door? We shall have to omit your name from our next list unless you take a few lessons In good man ners." This was striking him bard, and tbe quality of the man will at once appear plain to you when I say that be bad often received worse treatment but clung to tlie fiu-1' skim aU tbe more tenaciously. Tut uing lo urandon, the.princess said: "Maste Brandon, I am glad to see you, and regret exceedingly that our friend of Buckingham should so thirst for your blood." She then led him to the king and queen, to whom he made his bow, and the pair continued their walk about the room. Mary again al luded to the sklrmlsti at the door and said laughingly: "I would have come to your help, but I knew you were, amply able to take eare of yourself. I was sure you would worst the duke in some way. It was better than a mummery, and I was glad to see it. I do not like him." The king did not open these private balls, as he was supposed at least not to be their patron, and the queen, who was considerably older than Henry, was averse to such things. So the prin cess opened her own balls, dancing for a few minutes, with the floor entirely to herself and partner. It was the hon or of the evening to open the ball with her, and quite curious to see how men put themselves In her way and stood so as to be easily observed and, per chance, chosen. Brandon after leaving Mary had drifted Into a corner of the room back of a group of people and was talking to Wolsey who was al ways very friendly to him and to Mas ter Cavendish, a quaint, quiet easy lit tle man. full of learning and kindness. nri n warm friend to the Princess Mary. It was time to open the ball, and fmm mv nlace In the musicians' gal lery I could see Mary moving about among the guests, evidently looking for a partner, while the men resorted to finmp verv transparent and amusing expedients to attract her attention. The nrinrvaa. however, took none of the bidders, and soon, I noticed, she espied Brandon standing In the corner witn bis back toward her. Something told me she was going to ask him to open the dance, and I re gretted it, because I knew it would set every nobleman In the house against him. they being very Jealous of the "lowborn favorites," as they called the untitled friends of royalty. Sure enough. I was right Mary at once be gan to make her way over to the cor ner, and I heard her say, "Master Bran don, will von dance with me?' It was done prettily. The whole girl ! changed as soon as she found herself in ! front of him. In place of the old time confidence, strongly tinged with arro- ganee. she was almost shy. and blushed and stammered with quick coming breath, like a burgher maid before ber new found gallant At once the court iers made way for her, and out she walked, leading Brandon by tbe hand. Upon her lips and in her eyes was a rare, triumphant smile, as If to Bay: "Look at this handsome new trophy of my bow and spear." I was surprised and alarmed when Mary chose Brandon, but when I turn ed to the musicians to direct their play imagine. If you can, my surprise when the leader said: "Master, we have our orders for the first dance from the princess." Imagine also, if you can, my double surprise and alarm nay, almost my terror when the band struck up Jane'a ."Rnllnr Lass." I saw the look or sur prise and Inquiry which Brandon gave Mary, standing there demurely by his side, when he first beard the music, and I beard ber nervous little laugh as abe nodded ber bead, "Yes," and step ped closer to him to take position for the dance. The next moment she was In .Brandon'a arms, flying like a sylph about tbe room. A buss of astonish ment and delight greeted them before they were half way around and then a great clapping of hands. In which the king himself Joined. It was a lovely tight, although I think a graceful wo man. Is more beautiful in La Galllard than any other dance or, In fact, any other situation in which she can place herself. After a little time the dowager Duch ss of Kent, first lady in waiting to tbe queen, presented herself at tbe musi cians' gallery and said that ber majes ty had ordered tbe music stopped, and tbe musicians, of course, ceased play ing at once. Mary thereupon turned quickly to me. "Master, are our musicians weary that they stop before we are through V Tbe queen answered for me in a blgb voiced Spanish accent: "I ordered the music stopped. I will not permit such an indecent exhibition to go on longer." Fire sprang to Mary's eyes and she exclaimed: "If your majesty does not like the way we do and dance at my balls, you can retire as soon as you aee fit Your face Is a kill-mirth any way." It never took long to rouse her ladyship. The queen turned to Henry, who was laughing, and angrily demanded: "Will your majesty permit me to be thus Insulted In your very presence?" You got yourself Into It Oet out or It as best you can. I have orten torn you to let her alone. She has sharp claws." The king was really tired of Catherine's sour frown before he mar ried her. It was her dower of Spanisn. gold that brought her a second Tudor busband. "Shall I not have what music and dances I want at my own balls?" asked the princess. "That you shall, sister mine: mat tou shall." answered the king. "Go on, mnster. and if the girl likes to dance that wav. in Cod's name let her have her wish. It will never hurt ner. we will learn lt ourself. and will wear tne ladies out a-dnnclng." After Mary bad finished the opening dance there was a great demand ror Instruction. The king asked Branaon to teach him the steps, which he soon learned to perform with a grace per haps equaled by no living crenture oth er than a fat brown bear. The ladies were at first a little shy and Inclined to stand at arm's length, but Mary bad set tbe fashion and the others soon followed. I had taken a fiddler to my room and had learned the dance from Brandon and was able to teach lt also, though I lacked practice to make my step perfect The princess had needed no practice, but had danced beautiful ly from the. first ner strong youug limbs and supple body taking as nat urally to anything requiring grace of movement as a cygnet to water. This, thought I, Is my opportunity to teach Jane the new dance. I wanted to go to her first, but was afraid, or for some reason did not, and took sev eral other ladies as they came. After I bad shown the step to them I sought out my sweetheart. Jane was not a prude, but I honestly believe she was the most provoking girl that ever lived. I never had succeeded In holding her hand even the smallest part of an in stant, and yet I was sure she liked me very much almost sure she loved nie. She feared I might unhinge lt and car ry it away, or something of that sort I siipiRise. When I went lip and asked her to let me teach her the new dance, she said: "I thank you, Edwin, but there are others who are more anxious to learn than I, and you had better teach them first." "But I want to tench you. When I wish to teach them. I will go to them." "You did go to several others before you thought of coming to me." answer ed Jane, pretending to be piqued. Now, that was the uiikimlest thing I ever knew a girl to do refuse me what she knew I so wanted and then put the re fusal on the pretended ground that I did not cure much nlout it. I so told her, and she saw she hud carried things too far and that I was growing angry in earnest. She then made another false though somewhat flattering ex cuse: "I could not bear to go through that dance before so large a company. I should not object so much If no one else Could see that is, with you, Edwin." "Edwin!" Oh, so soft and sweet! The little jade! To think that she could hoodwink me so easily and talk me Into a good humor with her soft, purring "Edwin!" I saw through it all quickly enough and left her without another word. In a few minutes she went Into an adjoining room where l anew Bue was alone. The door was open, and the music could be heard there, so I followed. "My lady, there is no one to see us here. ' I can teach you. now, if you wish," said I. She saw she was cornered, and re plied, with a toss of her saucy little head. "But what if I do not wish?" Now. this was more than I could en dure with patience, so I answered, "My A " The eold Is io thick T The sold 1" so thick n a Ja..

"There are others who can dance it much tetter than you," she returned, without looking at me. "If you allow another to teach you that dance," I responded, "you will have seen the last of me." She had made me angry, and I did not speak to her for more than a week. When I did but I will tell you of that later on. The evening was devoted to learning the new dance, and I saw Mary busily engaged imparting Information among the ladles. As we were about to dis perse I beard ber say to Braudod: "Tou have greatly pleased the king by bringing him a new amusement He asked me where I learned it, and I told him you bad taught it to Casko den and that I bad it from blm. I told Caskoden so that be can tell the same, tory." "Ob, but that is not true. Don't you think you should have told him the truth or have evaded it in some way?" asked Brandon, who was really a great lover of the truth, "when possible," but who, I fear, on this occasion wish ed to appear more truthful than he really was. If a man is to a woman's "But viliat if I do not wlxltf" taste and she is inclined to him, he lays up great stores in her heart by making ber think him good, and shame ful impositions are often practiced to this end. Mary flushed a little and answered: "I can't help It You do not know. Had I told Henry that we four bad enjoyed sucb a famous time in my rooms he would, have been very angry, and and you might have been the sufferer." "But might you not have compro mised matters by going around the truth some way and leaving the Im pression that others were of the party that evening?" That was a mistake, for it gave Mary an opportunity to retaliate: "The best way to go around tbe truth, as you call it, is by a direct lie.' My He was no worse than yours. But I did not stop to argue about sucb matters. There is something else I wished to say. I want to tell you that you have greatly pleased the king with the new dance. Now teach blm 'honor and ruff and your fortune is made. He has bad some Jews and Lombards In of late to teach him new games at cards, but yours is worth all of them." Then, aomewbat hastily and Irrelevancy, "I not rlnnre the new dance with any ) -.1-- nllnntnn hut T till IllifmP VOll did Utuet ' " - - - i not notice it," and she was gone before be could thank ber.
