was the morn the wandering nlr just the pendulous brandi of the elms nnd mnpls and in the clear atmosphere the russet hills were sharply outlined As they swung out Into the road with Hans the musician at the reins the young girl removed her bonnet and leaned back In the chair of state where kings had fretted and queens had lolled The throne Imposing on the stage now appeared but a flimsy article of furniture wIUi frayed and torn up holstering and carving which had long since lost its glided magnificence Seated amid the Jumble of theatrical appliances and accoutcrmcnts scenery rolled up rug fashion property trunks stage clock lumps nnd draperies she accepted the situation gracefully oven finding nothing strange In the presence of the soldier New faces hnd come nnd gone in the company before and whon Barnes had complacently In formed her SaintProsper would Jour Hey with the players to New Orleans in a semlbuslnoss capacity the ar rangoraont appeared conformable to precedentThe satisfaction augured well for the Importance of the semi business role assumed by the stranger and Barnes friendliness was perhaps In some degree unconsciously reflected in her manner an attitude the soldiers own reserve or taciturnity had not tended to dispel So his being in the property wagon seemed no more singu mar than Hans occupancy of the front seat or If Adonis Hawkcs or Susan hud been there with her She was ac customed to free and easy comradeship Indeed knew no other life and It was only assiduous attentions like those of the land barons that startled and dis quieted her As comfortably as might be she set tied back In the capacious threadbare throne a slender figure in its depths more adapted to accommodate a corpu lent Henry VI11and smiled gayly as the wagon in avoiding one rut ran into another and lurched somewhat violently SaintProsper lodged on a neighboring trunk quickly extended a steadying hand You see how precarious thrones aro he said There Isnt room for it to more than totter she replied lightly removing her bonnet and lazily swinging It from the arm of the chair Thou ItV safer than real thrones be answered watching the swaying bonnet or perhaps contrasting the muscular bronzed hand he had placed on the chair with the smooth white one which held the blue ribbons n small though firm hand to grapple with the nil notaur Llfcl She slowly wound the ribbons around her fingers Oh you mean France she said and he looked away with sudden disquie tude Poor monarchs Their road is rougher than this one Houghor truly I You love France she asked suddenly after studying with secret side long glances his reserved Impenetrable face Ills gaze returned to tierto the bon net now resting in her lopto the hand beside It It Is my native land he replied Thou why did you leave ItIn its trouble she asked Impulsively Wily he repeated regarding her keenly but in a moment ho added For severalI reasons I returned from Africa from serving under Bugeaud to find the red flag waving in Paris the king lIetl- Oh she said quickly A king should What he asked as she paused- I was going to say It was better to dle like a king than Than live an outcast he concluded for her a shadow on his brow She nodded At any rate that Is the way they always do In the plays she added brightly Hut you were saying you found your real king fled Ills heavy brows contracted though lie answered readily enough Yes the king had lied A kinsman in whoso house I hud been reared then bade me head a movement for the restoration of the royal figure For what object The regency was doomed the king a May fly- And so you refusedSWe quarreled he swore Hke a Gas con ills little puppet should yet sit in the chair where Louis XIV hud lord it I who owed my commission to I noble name was a republican a tit serterl The best way out of the dim culty was out of the country First it was England then it was here tomor row where he added in a lower tone half to himself Where she repeated lightly That is our case too He looked at her with sudden Inter est Yours is an eventful life Miss Carew a I have never known any other she said simply adding after a pause My earliest recollections are associated with my mother nnd the stage As a child I watched her from the wings I remember a grand voice and majestic presence When the audience broke In to applause my heart throbbed with pride TT TT TTTTTTTTTTTTT Hut as her thoughts reverted to times past the touch of melancholy Invoked by the memory of her mother was grad ually dispelled as fancy conjured other scenes and n flickering smile hovered over the lips whose parting displaced that graver mood Once or twice I played with her too she added I thought it nice to be one of the little princes in Richard III and wear white satin clothes One night after the play nn old gentleman took me on his knee nnd said I had to cone my child and see If the wicket old uncle hadnt really smoth ered you When he hind gone my mother told mo he was Mr Washing ton Irving I thought him very kind for he brought me n bag of bonbons from the coffee room Its the first time I ever heard of a great critic laden with sweetmeats said the soldier And were you not flattered by his honeyed regard Oh yes I devoured it nnd wanted more she laughed Hans flourishing whip put nn end to further conversation They hnd advanced in this manner for some dis tance through furrow and groove when the vehicle gave n sharper lurch down a deeper rut and abruptly settled on one side liarues held the plunging horses in control while the gentlemen scram bled to the ground nnd assisted the Indies from Any to dismountINo damage done except to the ouch said Hawkes- By this time the horses had become quiet nnd Barnes now that the passengers were rescued like n good skipper left the quarter deck We couldnt have chosen a better place for our lunch he remarked philosophically How fortunate we should have broken down where we did Very fortunate echoed the old lady Ironically The accident hud happened upon n slight plateau of which they accordingly took possession tethering the horses to graze From the branches overhead the squirrels surveyed them as if asking what manner of people were these nnd the busy woodpecker ceased his drumming cocking his head Inquisitively at the Intruders then sly ly drew away mounting spirally the trunk of the tree to the hole chiseled by his strong beak for a nest As Barnes gazed around upon the pleasing pros pect he straightway became the duke in the comedy of the forest Ha my brothers In exile he ex claimed are not these woods more free from peril than the envious court All It wants said the tragedian hungrily is mutton greens nnd a foaming pot I cant promise the foaming pot answered the manager But at least we have u well filled hamper Soon the coffee was simmering and such viands as they had brought with them for Barnes was a farsighted and provident manager were spread out In tempting profusion Near them n swift flowing stream chattered about the stones like one of natures busiest gos sips it whispered to the flowers murmured to the rushes and was voluble to the overhanging branch that dragged upon the surface of the water The flowers on Its brim nodded the rushes waved and the branch bent as If In as sent to the mild gossip of the blithe some brook And it seemed as though all this animated conversation was caused by the encampment of the band of players by the wayside The repast finished they turned their attention to the injured chariot but fortunately the damage was not beyond repair and Barnes actor manager billposter license procurer added to his already extensive repertory the part of Joiner null wheelwright The skilled artisans in coachmaklng and coach repairing might not have regard ed the manager as a master workman but the fractured parts were finally sot after a fashion By that time how efer the sun hind sunk to rest upon a pillow of clouds the squirrels law abiding citizens hind sought their homes the woodpecker had vanished in his snug chamber and only forest dwellers of nocturnal habits were now abroad their name legion like the gad abouts of a populous city There exclaimed the manager surveying his handiwork The bus is ready But there is little use going on tonight I am not sure of the road and here In a likely spot to pass tho nightLikely to be devoured by wild beasts said Kate with a shudder I am sure I see two glistening eyes exclaimed Susan Fudge observed the elastic old lady Thats the first time you have been afraid of two glistening eyes Theres n vast difference between wolves and men murmured Susan Im not so sure of that returned the aged cynic But as tho light of day was with drawn a great fire sprang up illu minating the Immediate foreground The flames were cheering drawing tho party more closely together Even Hawkes partly discarded his tragedy face the old lady threw a bundle of fifty odd years from her shoulders as easily ns a wood carrier would cast aside his miserable stark of ftigqts a k while Barnes forgot his troubles InI narrating the harrowing experience ot1r a company vlilch hUll penetrated the west at a period antedating the settlement of the Michigan and Ohio bound nry dispute The soldier alone was silent curious ly watching the piny of light and shade on the faces of the strollers his gazo resting longest perhaps on the feature- of the young girl Leaning against n ancient oak so old the bisil o It was gone and it towered but n mighty shell the slender figure of the actress was clearly outlined but against that dark and roughly furrowed background she seethed too slight nnd delicate to but fet with storms and hardships That days experience wns n forerunner of the unexpected In this wandering life but another time the mishap might not be turned to diversion The coach would not always traverse Sunny byways The dry leaf flouting from the majestic arm of the oak the sound of an ncorn ns it struck the earth pre saged days less halcyon to come How do you enjoy being n stroller asked a voice Interrupting the soldiers reverie It has Its bitters nnd Its sweets hasnt It especially its sweets Su nn added glancing mean ingly nt the young girl But after all It doesnt much matter what happens to you If you are In good company The somlgloom permitted her to gaze steadfastly Into his eyes He Ignored the opportunity for u compliment nnd Susan stilled a little yawn real or im aginary Positively one could die of ennui In thiswilderness she continued Do you know you are a welcome addition to our band But you will have tc make yourself very agreeable I su- pposeurchloll were very agree able In the property wagon Mss Carew hud a part to

Sleepy echoed Barnes Take your choice the Hotel du Omnibus indi eating the chariot or the Villa Itall enne with n gesture toward n tent made of the drop curtain upon the walls of which was the picture of an Italian scene The chariot for me answered Su san It Is more high and dry and docs not suggest spiders and other crawling things Good night then and remember a good conscience makes a bard bed softThen I shall sleep on down 1 havent had a chance with a sigh to damage my conscience lately But when I strike civilization ngalnoml Susan shook her head eloquently to conclude her sentence Oh yes if beds depend on conscience boughs would be feathers for me tonight with which half laughing half defiant conclusion Susan tripped to the char lot pausing a moment however to cast a reproachful glance over her shoulder nt SaintProsper before vanishing in the cavernous depths of the vehicle of the muses Her departure was the signal for the dispersing of the party to their re spective couches Now the fire sank lower the stars came out brighter und the moon arose and traveled majestic ally up the heavens taking a brief but comprehensive survey of the habita tlons of mortals and then as It

ordered lils equl page While waiting he strode impa tiently to and fro In the dining room which dismantled of the stage by very contrast to the temporary temple of art turned his thoughts to the players The barrenness of the room smote him acutely with the memory of those performances and he laughed Ironically to himself that he should thus revert to them But as he scoffed inwardly his eyes gleamed with vivacity and the sensations with which ho bad viewed the young girl night after night were reawakened What was one woman lost to him his egotism whispered lie had parted from many as a gormand leaves one meal for another Yes but she had not been his Insinuated van ity another had whipped her off before hiseyesWhy the devil didnt you tell me ho was going with them ho demanded of the

his way partly forgetting his vexation In new anticipa lions nnd traveling with spirit to his destination which he reached late that afternoon In answer to repeated summons from the ponderous knocker shuflllng foot steps were finally heard within the door was opened n few inches nnd the gleaming teeth of a great gaunt log were thrust Into the opening fol lowell by nn ominous growling Mnu vllle sprang back n step tliCjSnarllng resolved Itself into a yelp as some one unceremoulouHiy dragged the canine back the door was opened wider and n brawny figure smoking n long stemmed pipe barred the way The dog but partly appeased peered from behind the mans sturdy legs awaiting hostili tits The latter an Imperturbable Dutchman eyed tho Intruder askance Bitiuklng ns Impassively In his face ns one of his ancestors before William the Testy Front his point of vantage on the threshold the caretaker looked down upon the master so Indifferently while the dog glared so viciously that the land baron cried angrily Why the devil dont you get out of the way nnd call oft that beast The urn pondered No one but the heir would give orders like that he said so accustomed to speaking his thoughts in the solitude of the great rooms that he gave way to the habit now This must be tho heir Slowly the caretaker moved aside the hound shifting his position accordingly and Mauville entered gazing around with some interest for the In terior of the manor realized the pretensions of Its outward aspect The floor of the hall was of satlnwood nnd rose wood and the mahogany wainscoting extending almost to the

hardwood floor In surveying his surroundings the land barons attention was attracted by a coat of arms deeply carved in the massive wood of the bookcase on n saltlre sable a fleurdelis or This head of heraldic flowers appeared to interest Mauville who smiled grimly From what I know of my worthy an cestors he muttered and their propensities to prey on their fellow men I should say n more fitting

colonial days by nominal purchase He had never married his desire for an heir being discounted by his aversion for the oth er sex until as the days dragged on he found himself bedridden und child less In his old age Unfortunately the miser cannot take his acres lute paradise and the patroon with many an Inward groan cast about him for some remote relative to whom he would reluctantly transfer his

the children of tho forest protested against this evangelizing process and carried off the good dominie to the torture stake where they plucked out his finger nails but he returned with ns much zest to his task of landing these simple souls in paradise as those who employed him displayed In making an earthly paradise out of the lands the red men left behind them r When by this shrewd system the

Fountain and thereby fills a lonefelt want Ft ee Press Any reliable tune saver is eagerly welcomed by the modern business man Probably the most forceful illustration of this condition of things in recent years was the enthusiasm with which the fountain pen was greeted It seemed to mean the saving of so much peopiethatDut the fountain pen was not by any means perfect and its users soon dis covered that the was only con centrated instead of being dispensed with The finest fountain pen would write indifferently well as long as there was ink in it but when that gave out our busy man had to stop unscrew an inky cap hunt around for a filler and the particular ink recommended by the manufacturers of tLat particular pen and so on through a long process of QuakerCityovercome all this bother and produced a practical writing tool which is as easy to use as if one were simply writing with the filler needed for the old pen There is nothing to unscrew nothing to squirt nothing to lose or get out of order Its construction is simple and substantial and the operation of filling it so simple that you wonder nobody thought of it before It is merely necessary to dip the pen pressing it slightly lift up as usual and go on writing Its capacity is no less than the bothersome kind We feel that we are not overpraioing the Quuker City SelfFilling Fountain Pen when we say that it represents the
