At the little chalet among the hilIs where the Duchess Joan had so sud- denly disappeared they found two of her tire-maidens and her aged nurse impatiently awaiting their mistress. To them entered that composite and puzzling youth the ex-architect and secretary of the embassy of Plassen- burg, Johann, Count you Loen. And. wonder of wondex~, in an hour Joan of the Sword Hand was riding eagerly towards her capital city with her due retinue, as if she had been only taking a little summer breathing space at a country seal It was six months afterwards that the Sparhawk. who had been given the command of a troop of good Hohen- stein lancers, asked permission to go on a Journey. "V4hither would you go?" asked .~is mistress. "'To Courtland." he confessed, some- what reluctantly, looking down at the peaked toe of his tanned leather rid- ing boot. "And what takes you to Courtl~md?" said Joan; "you are in danger there. Besides, would you leave my service and engage with some other?" "Nay, my lady," he burst out; "that will not I, so long as life lasts! But~ but the truth is"~he hesitated as he spdke~"I cannot get out of my mind the Princess who kissed me in the dark. The like never happened before to any man. I cannot forget her, do what r will. No. nor rest till I have looked upon her face." "Walt." said Joan. "Only wait till the spring and it is my hap to ride to Courtland for my marriage day. Then I promise you you shall see somewhat of her~the Lord send it be not more than enough!" So through many bitter days the 8parhawk abode at the castle ot Kernsberg, ill content. CHAPTER IX. The Sparhawk in the Tolls. It was the end of May, and the full bursting glory of a northern spring, when at last the bridal cavalcade wound down from the towers of the Castle of Kernsl~rg. As they rode toward the gate of Courtlaffd they were aware of a splen- did cavalcade which came out to re- ceive them in the name of the prince, and to conduct them with honor to the palace prepared for them. In the center of a brilliant ~company rode the Princess Margaret. At sight of the duchess' party the prtnce~s alighted from. her steed with the laelp of a cavalier. At the same moment Joan of the Sword Hand leaped down of her own accord and came forward to meet her new sister. The face of the princess showed a trace of emotion. She appeared to be struggling with some recollection she was unable to locate with precision. "I hope you will be very happy with my brother," she faltered; then after a moment she'added, "Have you not perchance a brother of your own?" But before Joan could reply, a repre- sentative of the prince had come for- ward to conduct the bride-elect to her rooms, and the princess gave place to him. But all the same She kept her eyes keenly about her, and presently they rested with a sudden brightness upon the young Dane, Maurlce yon Lynar, tatthe head of his of troop horses. "He is different~he is changed," she said to herself;''b~t how--wait till we get to the palace, and I shall soon find~ out.'' - " And ImmediateIy she caused it to be intimated that all~ the captains of troops and the superior officers ~f the escort of the Duchess Joan were to be entertained at the palace of the Prin- cess' Margaret, So at that moment when Joan was ~Have you not, perchance, a brother of your own ?" taking her first survey of her cham- of,the Count commanders own land and then come back to flout her for it." MaurIee understood her to refer to the kiss given and returned in the darkness of the night. He knew not of how many other indiscretions he was now to bear the brunt, or he had turne~l on the spot and fled once more across the river. "Princess," he said, standing hum- bly before her, "I did wrong. But con. sider the temptation, the darkness of the night " "The darkness of the night," she said, stamping her foot, and in an in- stinctively mocking tone; "you are in- deed well inspired. You remind me of what I ventured that you should be free. The darkness of the night, in- deed! I suppose that is all that sticks in your memory, because you gained something tangible by it. You have forgotten the walk through the corri- dors of the palace, all you taught me in the rose garden, and~and how apt a pupil you said I was. Pray, good Master Forgetfulness, who hath for- gotten all that, tell me what you did in Courtland eight months ago?" "I came--I came," faltered the Spar- hawk,fearful of yet further committing himself, "I came to find and save my dear mistress." "Your~dear--mistress?" The prin- cess spoke slowly, and the blue eyes hardened till they overtopped and beat down the bold, black ones of Maui'lce yon Ly.nar; "and you dare to tell me this--me, to whom yoq swore that you had never loved woman in the world before, never spoken to them word of wooing or compliment! Out of my sight, fellow! The prince, my brother, will ~eal with you." Then all suddenly her pride gave way. The disappointment was too keen. She sank down on a silk-cov- ered ottoman by the window side, sob- bing, Now Maurlce yon Lynar was not quick in discerhment where woman was concerned, but on this occasion he recognized that he was blindly play- ing tbe hand of another, a hand, more- over, of which he could not hope to see the cards. He did the only thing which could have saved him with the princess. He came near and sank on one knee be$ore her. "Madam," he said humbly and in a moved v~ce, "I beseech you not m be angry---~ot to condemn me unheard. In th~ sense of being in love, [ never lov~i any but yourself. I would rather d).e than put the least slight upon one so surpassingly fair, whose memory has never departed from me, sleeping or waking, whose image, dimly seen, has never for a moment been erased from my heart's tablets." "But you said just now that you came to Courtland tO see 'your dear mistress' ?" The young man put his hand to his head. "You must bear with me." he sald, "if perchance for a little my words are wild. I had, Indeed, no right to speak of you as my dearqmlstress." "Oh. it was of me that you spoke," said the princess, begi~lning to smile a little; "I begia to understand." "Of what other could I speak?" said the shameless Von Lynar, who now began to fe~l his way a little clearer. "I have ind~ed been very ill, and when I am in straits my head iS still unsettled. It springs from a secret wound that. at the time I knew noth- ing of." As he kneeled thus the princess bent over him with a quizzical expres. slon on her face: "You are sure that you sReak the truth now? Your wonnd is not causing you to dote?'7 ?Nay," said the Sparhawk; "indeed, 'tis almost healed," +'Where was the wormd?" queried the princess, anxiously. "There were ~wo." answered Von Lynar. diplomatically; "one in my shoulder at~ the base of my neck, and the other, more dangerous, beca~zse in. ternal; on the head, Rself." ?'Let me" see." She cam~ and e',:mcl above him as he put his h$~d to t~e collar of his doublet, and,' unfasteulng a tie, ,he slipped' it down a little and showed her at the spring of his neck Werner yon Orseln's'thrtmt. "And the other,'' she said; covering with a ,little sh~xdder, "that on where is it?" The youth blush~tl, but answered valiantly enough. "It never was an .open wound, and so is a little difficult to find, Here, ~here my hand is. above my brow." "Hold up your head," said the prin- cess. "On what side was it? On the right? Strange, I cannot find it. You are too, far beneath me. The light falls not aright. Ah, that is better!" Von Lynar looked at the princess. Their position was one as charming as it was dangerous. They were kneeling opposite to one another, their f~ces, drawn together by the interest d~f the surgical examination, had ap- proached very close. The dark e~es squarely looked into the blue. With stuff inflammable, fire and tow in such conjunction, who knows what conflagration might have ensued had Von ~ynar's eyes continued thuz to dwell on those of the princess? But ~he~ young man's gaze Dassed at 'the door with hls hand stm on the feet as the young Dane also had done a moment before. Maurice recognized the man who stood by the door as the same whom he had seen on the ground in the yew. tree walk when he and Joan of the Sword Hand ,had faced the howling mob of the city. For the second time Prince Wasp had interfered with the amusements of the Princess Margaret. The lady looked haughtily at the in- truder. "To what." she said, "am I so for- tunate as to owe the unexpected honor of this visit?" "5 came to pay my respects to your highness," said Prince Wasp, bowing low. "'I did not know the princess was amusing herself. It is my tlb fortune, not my fault, that I interrupt- ed at a point so full of interest." "You are at liberty to leave me now.'" said the princess, failing back on a certain haughty dignity which she kept behind her headlong impul- siveness. "I obey, madam." he replied; "but first I have a message from your brother. He asks you to be good "Dnly In the heartl" she added. enough to accompany his bride to the ~lnster to-morrow. He has been ill all day with his old trouble, and can- not wait in person upon his betrothed. He must abide iu solitude for this day at least. Your highness is apparently more fortunate!" The purpose of the insult was plain; but the Princess Margaret. restrained herself, not, however, hating the In-" sulter less. "I pray you, Prince Ivan," she said, "return to my brother and tell him that his commands are ever an honor, and shall be obeyed to the letter." She bowed in dignified dismissal Prince Wasp swept his plumed hat along the floor with the depth of his retiring salutation, and in the same moment he flashed out his sting. "1 leave your highness with less re- gret as I perceive that solitude has its compensations!" he said. The pair was left alone, but all ~hings seemed altered now. Margaret of Coartland was silent and distrait. Von Lynar had a frown upon his brow, and his eyes were very dark and angry. "Next time I must kilI the feIIow!" he muttered. He took the hand Of the princess and respectfully kissed it. "I am your servant," he said; "l wiI1 do your bidding i r~ aII things. In life or in death. If I have forgotten anything, in aught been remiss, hetieve me that it was rate and not L I wilI never .pre- sume, never count on your friendship past your desire, never recall your ancient goodness. I am but a poor soI- dier, but at least I can faithfully lteep my word." The prtnceswwithdrew her hand as if she had been somewhat fatigue@. "Do not hre afraid," she said a Iittle bitterly. "I shall not forget, [ h~ve no~ been wounded In the head! O~Iy in the heart!" she added, as ~e turned away. (To be continued.) Northern Settlere' Hosplta~!t~.
