Tho battery communicated the contents of a note written by one of tho ladles present through the wire by menus of spaces nnd lines, which Professoi" Morse trans, luted Into English. At that time the registering machine printed signs that stood for the ten numerical digits, and these numbers were translated Into words by means of n bulky dictionary compiled by Professor Mono, In which each word was represented by n combination of figures." !!y Jan. 21 of that year, however, when the Invention was shown In New York, the dots and dashes were arranged to signify letters, according to n plan of Vnll's, nnd tho cumbrous dictionary was discarded.

"Tho Itltz is hardly tho place for" But Itobin clapped him on tho back and favored him with tho good boyish smile that mastered oven tho fiercest of hl3 counselors, and tho minister of police, being an astute man, heaved a. deep sigh of icsignatlon. Count Qulnnox was gnawing his mustache. "Seo here, Itobin," ho said, laying his hand on tho young nian'ii shoulder, "you aro in Paris now, and not on board a ship at sea. Miss Gullo is a beautiful, charming, highly estlmablo young woman, and, might as well say it straight out to your face, you ought not to subject her to tho notoriety that la bound to follow If tho newspapers learn that sho Is playing around Paris, no matter how innocently, with a prince whom" "Just a monieut, count," Interrupted Itobin. a cold light In hla noiv unsmiling eyes.

Robin snatched up tho paper and read aloud for himself. Tho following card appeared at tho head of the column and was supple- mcnted by n completo resume of tho Blithers Graustark muddle: "Miss Blithers dcslro to correct an erroneous report that has appeared In tho nowEpa: rs. Sho Is not engaged to bo marrkJ to tho Princo of Grau-- ' stark, nor is thero even the remotest probability that such will over bo tho case.

Tho statements of tho two persons most vitally affected by this disturb- lng rumor should bo taken as final. Sufficient pain and nnnoyanco nlrcady havo been caused by tho malicious and utterly groundless report." Tho namo of Maud Applegato Blithers was ap- pended to '" statement, and It was dated Paris, .nig. 29. . It nppeara that tho signed statement was left in the counting' room of tho various newspapers by a heavily veil ed lady at an hour agreed upon as "about 10 o'clock." There was absolutely no clue to tho Identity of this woman.

Inspired writers began to weave n romance nround them. Tho newspapers also printed a bit of news in tho shape of a dispatch from Now York to tho effect that Mr. and Mrs. William W. Blithers were sailing for Europe on tho ensuing day, bound for Graustark. Howovcr, tho chief and present con-crof tho threo loyal gentlemen In midnight conclavo was not centered In tho trouble that Mr. Blithers had started, bat In tho moro desperato situation created by Miss Guile. She was tho peril that now confronted them, and sho was Indeed a peril. "By Jovo!" exclaimed Dank, so loudly that his companions actually Jumped In their seats. "What ails you, Dank?" demanded tho baron, removing his eyes from tho young man's faco long enough to ghinco fearfully at tho transom. "I've I'vo got it!" cried tho soldier. Count, you remember tho big red letter B on all of her trunks, dont you? defl-nlto n threo Journals and stared at Dank as If expecting hopo from that most unreliable source. "I supposo you will now admit that I am right about tho letter B," said Dank sullenly. "When I see Miss Gullo I shall ask point blank If sho Is Maud Applegate, Dank, and If sho says sho Isn't I'll take her word for It," said Robin. "And if sho says she is?" "Well," said tho princo ruefully, "I'll still take her word for It." "And then?" "Then I shall bo equally frank and tell her that I am Robin of Graustark. That will put us all square again, and we'll seo what comes of It In tho end." The day was warm and clear, and Paris was gleaming. Robin stretched his long legs In a brisk walk across tho Place Vendomo and up tho Rue do la Palx to tho boulevard. Here ho hesitated and then retraced his steps slowly down tho street of diamonds, for he suspected Miss Gullo of being Interested in things that wero costly. Suddenly inspired, ho made his way to tho Place do la Concordo and settled himself on ono of tho seats near tho entrance to tho Chnmps Elysees. A man came up and took a scat bcsldo tho newcomer, and Robin somowhat grufily demanded what tho dcuco ho meant by following him. "I havo somo Interesting nows," said Baron Gourou quietly. "From homo?" asked Robin carelessly. "Indirectly. It comes through Berlin.

There was a tantalizing smile on tho baron's faco as ho watched tho changing expressions In that of his princo. "Aro you In earnest?" demanded Robin, a bright red spot appearing In each cheek. Tho baron nodded his hend. "Well, ho's got a lot of nervo!" "I shudder when I think of what Is likely to happen to thoso architects when thoy begin snooping around tho castle," said Gourou dryly. "By tho way, havo you seen Miss Gullo this morning?" Robin's cheeks were now completely suffused. "Certainly not."

Meantime Sautn Anna ndvanced nt tho head of it Mexican nriny. entered Texas nnd on Feb. ffil laid siege to the Alamo fort nt San Antonio. Atrocious butchery marked the progress of his soldiery. The Mexican general made frequent assaults upon the fort to rout the defenders. The .small handful of Americans, however, wero able to withstand tlie slego for eleven days. They were starving, but in spite of this they wero able to Inflict death upon about 1,000 of the enemy. When the siego was nt its height Davy Crockett, with nbout thirty fron tiersmen, cut his way through the Mexican forces and, rushing into the fort, shouted, "Boys, we're here to die with you!" Finally tho day came when the little band could withstand the assault no longer. It wns the memorable Cth of March. It was a hand to hand struggle, but each American beforo he gave up his life inndo the enemy pay nn nwful toll. Colonel James Bowie was one of tho bravest of tho Amcrlcnns, nnd when his body was discovered It lay In the center of a circle of slain Mexicans. At last only six defenders remained nllve. among whom wns Davy Crockett. Santa Anna promised them protection if they would surrender, but the moment they laid down their arms they wcro butchered like sheep. Moro than a dozen sword wounds pierced Crockett before he fell. Mad with rage at tho Alamo tragedy. Sam Houston gathered the settlers together. Ho showed nn unusual amount of strategy, knowing that his hand of followers would not be able to competo with tho Mexicans, so ho retreated in order to scatter the pursuing Mexican forco until San Jacinto was reached. At San Jacinto the Americans charged the Mexican force, which wns much superior In number, but throughout the roar of the cannonading and the rattle of musketry that wild yell, "Remember the Alamol" could bo constantly heard above the din. It stirred the patriots and made them fight like demons. In barely twenty minutes nfter tho first onslaught tho Mexicans wero flying In every direction, with Houston and his men following them. Houston had his horse shot from under him, and n bullet had smashed his own ankle. This mndo no Impres sion upon him, for ho paused not for a moment until the entire Mexican force was destroyed. The Mexican loss was 1,300 killed nnd captured, nnd among the hitter was Santa Anna. It was the battle of San Jacinto that secured for Texns her Independence, nnd for his valor Sam Houston received ns his pay tho honor of being the first president of tho now republic, which wns later to becomo the largest state In tho Union. It was through Houston's influence ten years later that Texas became a member of the United States with tho result, the Mexican war.
