iiatin and Often Lucrative
- Citrus Imlastry
ILirry Snowden Stabler in the Country
Gentleman.
The homeseeker in Florida is. told
'he can make $4736. 5 in the sixth
year from a ten-acre grove of 500 or orange
ange orange trees and 500 grapefruit, trees.
BUT, according to figures, of ave average
rage average citrus fruit values compiled by
the Florida, commissioner of agricul agriculture,
ture, agriculture, this eame number of trees
would produce a crop worth-at the
most, $3010. And the trees would
then be in full bearing.
A sixteen acre grove, with 1200
trees in full bearing, was offered for
sale for $G000, with the prospects
of $1500 income the first year,
And a twelve-acre grove, six years
bid, was offered for Jes3 than $4000.
All good Floridians date every everything
thing everything from the Big Freeze. That
happened twenty years ago a short
time in any country, except this bless blessed
ed blessed one of ours but as long ago as
it seems :. to them no man in that
warm climate recalls it without a
shudder. However, should such an
atmospheric freak occur today it
would not riot only be far less de de-structive,
structive, de-structive, but it would be viewed
with more-equanimity by the people,
for In 1912 the citrus fruits came
hear being fourth Instead of first In
the value of the state's products.
Florida today is an unknown
country to ninety-nine out of every
- hundred people In the United States.
Even the majority of those who visit
it fail to get anything like a correct
idea. In 1894 the peninsula was
thought by the inhabitants themselv themselves
es themselves to be a mere strip of sand jutting
out between the Atlantic and the
Gulf, fit for nothing but growing or oranges..
anges.. oranges.. So if you had then ventured
the opinion that the freeze was a sort
, of economic cataclysm one of
those proverbial "blessings in dis
guise" you would probably have
been hanged to a, sour orange -tree if
one could have been found.
But there were mighty few left,
and many people, thinking their only
asset was wiped out, quit the state.
There were many others, however,
possessed of courage, fortitude and
vision, whose faith in the future of
'the country has been amply justified.'
Those who stuck to citrus growing
realized that while ; freezes do come
- every now and then to darnage the
crops, or even cut the season's t'en-
. der growth back, the temperature
had not fallen so low as fourteen de degrees
grees degrees in Florida since 1835. Among
them E. II. Mote, whose story is
s worth sketching because it is in some
ways typical of thousands of men who
came to Florida when it was in a
very primitive stage, fell in love with
it and stuck to it.
Mr. Mote was a Delaware man.
Like many others he went south for
his healthy in 1881, locating at Lees Lees-burg,
burg, Lees-burg, then a village of less than a
hundred people, situated between
Lake Griffin and Lake Harris. The
lake region is by far the most beau beautiful
tiful beautiful part of Florida. But even then,
the crooked promoter was abroad in
the land. So the new comer promptly
got stung in the purchase of some
land which he had never seen, altho
he paid only $5 an acre for it.
With the deed in his pocket he went
out to take a look at it. It was not
only covered with scrub, but there
were a lot of small mounds scattered
all over it. Beneath each one was a
hole. ... -" '"
"What tare those?" he asked.
- "Gopher holes.' s
The Florida gopher is not furrow-
ed but shelled. It is a sort of land
turtle and it oftenv digs a hole into
which you could throw a good sized
valise. Disgusted, the tender-foot
was about to drop his deed into one
of them when he was persuaded to
" trade the land f orva pair of mules,
one of which was spavined, the other
4Hnd in one eye. With this pair of
steeds and $300 Mr. Mote embarked
in the livery business. It jogged
along for a few years, finally came
down to a walk, and then one day a
perfectly bare feed room over the
stable, gave him an idea.
Danger From Frost is Less Now
In a week or so enthusiastic Flor Floridians
idians Floridians were sailing around on roller
skates. The rink was opened in Feb February
ruary February and by July it had netted
$2200, just enough to give Mr. Mote
o start in the hotel business. That
grew, but the town needed a real
emporium. It was opened with a gen general
eral general stock of goods costing $S000,
half of which was bought with cash.
A series of free excursions brought
the natives from distances of fifty
'miles or more and the whole stock
was" sold out in less than two weeks.
Out of this business he bought a
twenty-acre orange grove in 1891,
paying $32,000 for it and forty acres
adjoining. Groves were just as high
priced in those days as they are now.
Then came thf big freeze which
cut the trees to the ground and broke
him as well as everyone else in the
citrus industry. Nothing daunted

him. He abandoned that land and
started to build another grove upon
some hammock land which was used
for growing vegetables. This oc occupied
cupied occupied a small peninsula at the south southwest
west southwest of Lake Griffin. In four years
10,000 trees had been set. out, when
In '1899 another freeze cut them back
so that they had to be budded over
again.. This time half the new buds
were grapefruit of a seedless variety,
the rest being oranges and tangerines.
It was in tjiis grove, accompanied
by the man who built it, that I fir it
saw a citrus tree in full bearing. It
came to me as a distinct shock, for
if there is anything in "nature so
beautiful and impressive, I have yet
to see it, unless it is an orange tree
with the bloom, the green fruit and
the ripe fruit upon it. This particu particular
lar particular tree, an unusually fine one for its
age about twelve years was not
more than that many feet tall, with
Its lower branches,, touching the
ground. Hanging upon them were
at least 400 grapefruit about ten
or twelve boxes such as you see in
the stores. I crawled under the
branches and tried to get an adequate
picture of the great yellow globes,
half a dozen of which could be seen
hanging to a stem smaller than a
lead pencil. But neither words nor
camera can describe it.
"Now you can understand," said
my host, "why the growing of these
things is the most fascinating occu occupation

from frost does not lessen or add
to its zest, because it is much less
than it used to be. We have learned
a great many things about frost "pro "protection

"Most variaties of grapefruit and
oranges are now budded on the hard hardier
ier hardier native or sour-orange stock and
close to the ground. That eliminates

the single tall trunk, so the branches
often seem to spring out of the earth.
Before the cold weather comes the
tree banked-with clean, dry earth,
sometimes to as height of three feet,
v;hich effectually protects the most
valuable part of it. And should a
very severe freeze occur, at least
fifty per cent; .of the tree's value
would be saved, besides giving us a
good long -start on the new growth.
"Then too, the temperature in a
grove located near a fair-sized body
of water, will be anywhere from six
to ten degrees warmer than other
wise. This grove has water on three
sides. The land slopes gently from
the center in all directions, which not
only allows a natural drainage, but
also enables us to irrigate ; it by
pumping water f-om the lake to the
highest point, whence it is evenly dis distributed.'
tributed.' distributed.' We had gone to the pump house
and stood looking across 125 acres
in full bloom, with here and, there a
tree on which fruit had been left to
ripen. The perfume is not the only
thing that is likely to go to your
head.
Figures to Make Your Brain Reel
"When this grove is in full bearing
when the youngest trees are, say, ten
years old, how many .boxes of fruit
ought it to produce each year?" I
asked.
"That is rather a difficult thing
to say," was the reply. "Like the
stars, one year, differeth from another
in glory. Neither are the trees
alike. But call it an average of four
boxes a tree. There are 15,000 of
them in this grove, which would
make 60,000 boxes."
"At what price a box?"
"That agaih is 'hard to say. But
in a good year grapefruit from this
grove have sold on. a basis of $3.5.0
a box on the tree; oranges from $1.40
to $2J tangerines from $2 to $3.50.
But leave out those figures,- which
are exceptional, and cail it $1 a box."
That's $60,000. And' the net
profit?""
- "Even at fifty cents a box that
would be $30,000 twenty per cent,
on $150,000, or $1200 an acre, for
which this grove has been sold."
Such figures as these sets one's
brain to buzzing. And with that
ten-box tree in mind it Is there yet,
by the way I wonder" if four boxes
a tree was not ultra-conservative for
suck a grove.
y I know owners whose groves can cannot
not cannot be purchased for love or money;
they derive splendid incomes from
them, besides the fascinating pleas pleasure
ure pleasure of growing them. For instance,
one man in one season received a net
profit of more than $40,000 from a
grove of seven and a half acres of
oranges and grapefruit containing
less than 650 trees. His affidavit to
this effect has been copied and com-
mented upon "dozens of times. He
! is some citrus grower, believe me,
and he has a magnificent lot of trees.
Yet his net income does not compare
with the "ultra-conservative esti-
mate" of Which the homeseeker can
make, -contained in the booklet of a
Knmnum- that Iipc bp.fnro me
As "usual the company is not composed
of Florida people.
What then is the answer to these
v.'ide discrepancies? This is the way
it looks to a man up a tree: Anybody
can grow oranges and grapefruit In
Florida. With the. expenditure of
time, money and brains I believe al

man who has devoted his life to It
says:
"Every one who is willing to pay

but only he who is so constituted as

mental faculties to the fullest extent
can produce fruit of the finest qual quality.

knowledge, must be exercised in the
choice of the stock, the bud, the soil
and the location of the orchard; in
the cultivation and fertilization of the
crops in the treatment of the fung fungous,
ous, fungous, and insect diseases, in picking
and packing and selecting a market
for its disposal."
The perfection of growing condi"
tions is to be found in Florida
along the Indian River and below,
throughout the lake region and along
the southwest coast where the wide
waters of the gulf temper the winter
winds from the northwest. In these
localities, according ta my belief, it
will cost from $600 to $1,000 an acre

average output should be about 100
trees. It is about 200 now. The net

fifty cents, on grapefruit seventy-five
cents. It is less than that now; on
the average.
One of the reasons for this is that
in my opinion, fully a third of those
who are growing citrus fruits in Flor Florida

Is Just as. Independent and Out Outspoken
spoken Outspoken and Unrepentant
as Ever
The following from Claude LEn LEn-gle's
gle's LEn-gle's last Washington letter to Dixie
shows that the anvil chorus has had
no effect on this outspoken man, who
the people of Florida sent to Con
gress principally because he showed
that he had the independence
to blaze a trail of his own instead of
following the beaten paths in jour
nalism and politics:

ed papers, should find anything to
approve of in my way of doing things
I would begin to suspect myself. If
they should learn to love me enough
to print about me the slop that they
have printed about public men who
don't do anything to displease the
interests, I should begin to hate my myself,
self, myself, which, 3ust to beat Stovie or
Stoneman to it, I will say would
be-"a complete reversal of form."
Somewhere about the middle of
last week a patriotic, citizen of Flor Florida
ida Florida happened to be In my office, and
drawing up his chair close to mine
so close that even the stenographer
couldn't hear him told me that
some of the papers in Florida were
printing mighty mean things about
me, and that I ought to do something
to stop it.
After he got through whispering, I
talked out loud, and I told him that
the plute papers had been chewing
on my name for six years and that
the-' anvil chorus had always "been
ready and willing to work over-time
to put the kibosh on me; that the
peon press had been improving every
opportunity it had to lie and misrep
resent and to manufacture outright
in their desire to nrint anythlne
that would put .me in bad.
I told him that it did not sur
prise me or jar me a little bit to
know that the boys were at it again.
On the contrary, it satisfied me that
I was doing, and talking and writing
the same way in Washington as I had
done, and talked, and written in
Florida. I reminded him that the
people of Florida' seemed to like
what I did, how I talked, and the
way I wrote enough to favor me with
more than twice as big a majority
as they ever gave anybody else who
asked for their endorsement at the
polls.
It is true.thatyoung Herbert Fel-

in their well regulated columns that

not blindly followed the leaders of
the party, nor anyone else, and that
I have antagonized certain people.
These papers and the little ones
like McCreary's, and Jordan's, and

not print anything at all about me
unless they would, as they sometimes
have done, manufacture it outright
without carrying the news to their

the legislative ideas of Congressman

I did not antagonize the junior

enough to run the risk of antagoniz

thought the senator was right and
the Peerless was wrong. Nor will I

my speeches I told the people that I
did not know what I could do; that
it was a mighty big job and that I
was afraid that the cards were stack- :
ed against any one who wanted to
legislate for the rule of the people.' I
reminded the people that a man had
to get a majority of Congress to
agree with him before he could put
any legislation on the books, and that
therefore 1 could not promise to put
any there', but that I could tell about
everything I found out about, be because

I don't expect, to get on this subject
any more, to remind the people of
Florida that no one ever came to
Congress from Florida as free and as
unpledged as I am. .1 owe my elec
tion to no faction; 1 didn't get here
because any combination, crowd, or

DIAMOND DUST
Good Local Xotes on the National
; Game
"Shorty" McLeod, who played first
base for Ocala last Thursday, played
the best game he has been in this
year, not making the semblance of
an error and rapping out three per
fect singles out of four, times at bat.
But "Shorty" says that the thing
which won him a home wa3 his
stealing second in the fourth inning.
Frank Heidle was robbed of two
perfect hits in Palatka. In the sixth
inning he connected with the pill
and sent it over the third baseman's
head for two bases. The ball hit
fully six feet inside the foul line, but
the "umps" from his position on the
diamond was not able to see the ball
and therefore called it a foul.
George Batts played a good game
at third Thursday, but on account of
not being able to get much practice
on. the diamond there was a slight
flaw in his peg to first. Batts has a
good arm and with a little practice he
will prove a valuable man to the
team.
Roy Galloway, as a pitcher, is an
exception to the rule when it comes to
hitting. It is indeed very seldom
that a pitcher raps out .a home run.
And as an infielder he has "some
class." vV" -,
..
I
Fleckenstelh" and Roberts did no
accompany the team on the last trip.
An opposing batter might be able
to put a ball under, through or be beside
side beside Ocala's' Infield but when it
comes to knocking one over their
heads there is nothing doing. The
infield has the appearance of some
fiatlron buildings, with McLeod on
first; Anthony on second and Dewey
on third.
-k The team will put In good practice
all this week prior to the game with
Riverside Thursday and make the
Jacksonville boys work '. to carry
away the game.

ANOTHER BANK FOR OCALA
Colored Men Will Establish What
Promises to be a nourishing
Institution
As will be seen by the articles of
incorporation elsewhere in this issue,
Ocala is to have a new bank to be
opened and entirely financed by our
substantial colored citizens.
As soon as the charter is granted
and the necessary equipment, books
and stationery can be received the
Metropolitan Savings Bank, capital
ized at $25,000, will be opened for
business in the handsome new build
ing of the Metropolitan Realty and
Investment Co., a kindred organiza organization,

the best paying businesses in the
city.
George Giles is president of the
bank, Frank P. Gadson is cashier and
Prof. Joseph L. Wiley is first vice
president. The other officers and
directors, whose names appear in the
charter in another column, are all
solid, respectable and very sucecssful
colored business men of the city and
county.
This bank will make a special ef effort
fort effort to get the business of men of the
colored race, much of which Is going
to other banks in other localities.
There are many substantial colored
farmers along the northern line of
Marion and in the southern part of
Alachua counties, as well as else elsewhere,
where, elsewhere, who do their business in
Gainesville and in Jacksonville, and
this institution proposes to induce
these people to bring their money to
Ocala.
No section of the South boasts a
better class of colored citizenry than
does Ocala and Marion county, and at
least, a goodly number of the men of
this race have demonstrated their
ability to make good in financial mat matters,
ters, matters, and have done, a' great work
intha business world to develop their
race, stimulate and encourage them
and make them independent and self self-reliant.

with pride to Giles, Gadson, Wiley
Mitchell, LaRoche, Dr. Wilson and
others who have accumulated a good
share of this world's goods, and
whose w6rd and commercial standing
are excellent assets.
Three years ago these men with
several others on their board, organ
ized and commenced business with
the Metropolitan Realty and Invest
ment Company, incorporated for
$25,000. Today, this company owns
the beautiful-building on- Magnolia
street now just being completed and
the entire block on which It stands,
together with two other "blocks in the
northern part of the city, thirty
houses standing on the different
properties with a monthly rental roll
of over $500. Every man who invest invested
ed invested in shares of this company in the
three years just closed has received

fifty per cent of his investment back
in dividends and his stock is now
worth twice what he paid for it. Can
any company, white or colored, make
a better showing.
The company has financed a num number
ber number of other building operations,
among them the splendid double double-store
store double-store brick block on the corner west
of Schlemmer's bakery. They have
assisted many a colored man in his
business and on his farm in a finan financial

reasonable charges for the service.
A year ago they planned for the
erection of their home on the corner
of Magnolia and South Second streets
and today the building stand3 com completed,
pleted, completed, with the exception of a little
interior work, which is being done
as rapidly as possible.
This building is worth $20,000 and
Is one of the handsomest, best built
and strongest buildings in the city.
It is 60x70 feet, three stories high,
with solid concrete floors and four four-foot

carry six-story walls.
The first floor is divided Into bank banking

little banking rooms in the country
with tiled floors and a directors room
in the rear. Like every store and
front in the building, office and hall,

it is a credit to the city and no stores
are better made or better finished.
At the rear of the banking room
and facing on South Third street is a
large store room which will be oc
cupied as a drugstore. On the Mag Magnolia
nolia Magnolia street front are two handsome
stores with as modern fronts as the
city can shdw, one of which will be a
grocery and the other a drygoods
store.. In the southwest corner is the
stairway, broad and easy of ascent.
The second floor has four hand
some offices in the front and four on
the north side, with a large hall, box
office and toilets for both sexes and
a large hall or passageway ell shaped
through the building. Every store,
office or hall in the building is well
ventilated, large windows being in
great numbers all over the house.
These offices are all rented to doc doctors,
tors, doctors, insurance men and a lodge.
The third floor is one vast hall,
70x60 feet, with a stage in one end
and is well lighted and ventilated. It
is the largest single room in the city
by long odds, and is in charge of
Jay G. Glymp. It is going to" be a
money maker and a very popular re resort
sort resort for the better class, of colored
people for their entertainments a"hd
for a gathering place for large meet meetings
ings meetings of various kinds. Already, it
has paid well before the building was
near completed. Good order and
decency must be observed here, the
officers of the company say.
Nothing short of an k earthquake
will ever shake this building. There
is. nothing in town, short of the fed
eral building that is stronger.
Messrs. Mclver & MacKay were-the
architects and they have congratulat congratulated
ed congratulated the members of the company on
the splendid construction of their
building. George Giles did the work,'
that is, superintended it, and follow
ed every foot of its progress with. an
eagle eye. Its material from ton to
bottom is the best that could be had
and it was put together to stay.
The walls are brick on the north
and west fronts, thick and strong and
on the south and east, heavy trussed
frame with galvanized siding resting
on the thick concrete foundations. It
is the intention of the company to
brick up these two sides a little later
on. Carpenters, tinners and painters
say there is not a better roof in the
city than covers this building and the
painters are putting on the third coat
of paint this morning. The walls are
plastered in first class shape and the
ceilings are stamped steel.

in the near future, other handsome
buildings will be erected by this com company
pany company on the block to supplant small

there. We are informed that some
very substantial brick blocks will

corners on the north'and northwest
of the new building, and with George
Giles' big factory south of it, his store
on the east, another large building to

CHAPTER VI.
The Memss From Helgoland.
The election was over. Astra Pro Pro-dent,

had been elected President of the
United Republics of "America. The

was occupied consulting politicians,
generals, admirals, making flying trips
to the fortifications that were rapidly

times.:""-". v
Constantly she expected news from
the man she had seen only-once, the
man whom she looked upon as the de deliverer
liverer deliverer of the American continent, and
also the man she loved. -..' :
Days, weeks, months went by. The
day of Inauguration came. "She had
expected confidently that she would
hear from him, or see him on the day
she took the oath at the capItoL but
she was disappointed.

on her way to the altar with the man
she had chosen. ... , r,. r,.-'

entire day, and the evening was spent
at the ball given by the continental continental-Ists.

that were received a shadow was hov hovering

It was late, when Astra arrived at
her home. She looked over the cor correspondence

was no line from the man whose hand handwriting
writing handwriting she had never seen, no news
whatever from Napoleon Edison.
Yet he had said: "You will hear
from me as soon as I can tell you
something ; definite. When you. need
me I will be at your side ready to
help, you..':" '. V
With these thoughts to console her
she bent her head to sleep.
The President was at her office
early the next morning. ; Her first of official
ficial official action was to consult with the
military commanders, then to send
out a proclamation to all the republics
of the greatest union of the world,
giving' them detailed instructions re

garding the defense. of the continent.
In accordance .with the decision of
the most competent military men,
General Eugene Grant Gunner, was ap appointed
pointed appointed commander in chief of the con continental
tinental continental armies of America. Exten Extensive
sive Extensive arrangements were made to en enlist
list enlist those who were willing to take up
arms for the defense of their country,
and the old form of national guard
tactics were revived.
Astra labored day and night though
she prayed that God would prevent
the bloodshed for which, she was pre preparing
paring preparing her people. Such were her
thoughts and still no news came from
the man who had promised so much,
from whom she expected so much.
Her cheeks began to lose their
color, and, her large eyes often looked
longingly Into the distance. "Why
does he not come? Why does. he not
send a message?"
The Vice-president, Mr. Hale, was
announced v to her one evening. He
bowed deeply before her as the Pres

ident, then with the familiar air of a
close friend, be took Astra's hand In
his. -
rMy dear girl," he began, "I am
much troubled; your efforts will un undermine

your cheeks are already turning pale.
You should think of yourself in the
interest of the union, or you will be

words "she slowly withdrew It.
"I first saw you when under the
care of your father, watched you de develop,
velop, develop, strong and beautiful. I wish
you would let me carry at least part
of your burden. I am a man and I
can stand more than a frail woman."
The girl president blushed; taking
"this for encouragement, Mr. Hale con continued:
tinued: continued: -Astra, I love you, will you
be my wife?"
The statesman stood helpless before
the girl who smiled kindly at him.
"Sit down, Mr. Vice-president, and
be good enough to listen to me."
He obeyed and Astra sat down op opposite
posite opposite him. :
"Your proposal honors me, Mr. Vice Vice-president;
president; Vice-president; I am sorry that I am un unable
able unable to accept it. The times that we

are living in are such that matters

such as this v would be out of place,

and while you have all my sympathy,
I cannot tell you that you have my

A sigh escaped her lips; she thought
of the man whom she loved, for whom
she felt that she was created. She
yearned to say eome soothing worda
to the friend of her father, but just
then a sharp ringing sounded through
the whole suite. It was a signal for
extrerjely important communications
and she left hurriedly with a glance
pleading for .Hale's pardon.
A moment later Astra was in the
library putting the electro-stylograph
in working order with shaking fingers.

She could hardly believe her eyes; the

pointer of the machine was on the Is Island
land Island of Helgoland, the great German
fortiilcation.
The machine was at last adjusted;

heard. his picture appeared oh tne
helioplate, howlng smilingly toward
the girl whose "heart was beating
painfully. Her blood rushed to her
.head as she responded .to the" greet
"Your excellency. I have to report
that the confederated fleet of the Eu European
ropean European monarchies started for Ma Madeira
deira Madeira today. I have been a prisoner,
but an hour ago I escaped: Tomor Tomorrow

-T "I am so very, very happy that I
have at last -heard from you!" V
x Edison bowed; in the hazy back background

In his hand, and beside him was the
faint form of a woman watching Edi Edison.

"I will be there at ten, your ex excellency.',
cellency.', excellency.', "I will expect you!"
The picture vanished. She leaned
over the plate that had, a second ago,
reflected the Image of the man in
whom she placed all her hopes.
Joy and happiness so filled her
heart that the news that the confed confederated
erated confederated fleet was on Its way did not
seem so terrible.
As she took the paper out of the
machine to see the message she pon pondered:
dered: pondered: "The message came from Hel Helgoland,
goland, Helgoland, and he says he will be here
tomorrow. 'How can 1 that be?"
Recalling that the Vice-president
was waiting for her, she went back
to the green room. :
"A very important message came,"
she said to Hale, in extenuation ol
her long absence, x Then, after a short
pause, she added:' "I may as well tell
you now, the confederated European
fleet is on its way to. Madeira."
The Vice-President gasped. "And
you have connections with Europe,
your excellency?"
She smiled at his surprise. Not
connections; only one, but that one
I believe in implicitly."
"Then there will be a session of
the union ministers tomorrow?"
"Not tomorrow, but very likely the
day after."
Shortly after this the Vice-president
left and Astra retired to her private
apartment, giving out orders no one
should disturb her until the next
morning.
When the tired, but now happy girl
was alone, undisturbed, she kissed the
ring with the word "Cirynith" on It,
and looked up to heaven with joyful
eyes. The man who gave her the ring
was coming.

CHAPTER VII.
The Prison.
"The morning after the imprison imprisonment

served as his temporary cell.

easiness uneasiness to do that, as. there is not
the slightest chance for you to gain
your liberty." ;
: "Captain, I thank you very much;
not only will I not give my word, but
I will tell you plainly that I intend
to do my best to escape' from this
prison, where your superiors have
placed me without having the slight slightest
est slightest cause for the action." 'He smiled
pleasantly at the captain and contin continued:
ued: continued: "I can see that you realize how
I feel about it, and for that reason I
advise you to be on the alert or I
will escape."
"Just 03 rou Dleaae. chevalier. It

fs my duty to make your temporary
detention as pleasant as possible, and
If agreeable to you we can get ac acquainted
quainted acquainted at the breakfast table."
"That sounds good, I ( am hungry.".
The dfning-room was comfortable
and pleasant; the breakfast was
simple and wholesome.
Prisoner and guard sat silent for a
while, and at last the chevalier said:
"I suppose.it is vain for, me to ask
you the name of the place where I am
imprisoned?" j u
"You are right, chevalier!" "4
"You have an advantage over me,
captain. You know my name and I
don't know yours ; is it against your
orders to tell me?"
"No, indeed, chevalier; my name is
Hans Euler."
"Thank you. Captain Euler. I as assure
sure assure you that I "am 'glad .'I have made
your acquaintance." ;
They talked pleasantly .during
breakfast. Afterward the captain es escorted

played a game of carambol; the chev chevalier

The chevalier suggested a walk in
the open air, but the captain shook
his head. "I am sorry to disappoint
you, my dear chevalier, but your ter territory
ritory territory ends here." He said this with
euch kindness that it was plain to the
chevalier that he was sorry for the
imprisonment. r :
For two long months the Captain
Hans Euler kept faithful company to
the chevalier.
There -s no chance to escape from
this prison; not even a chance to look
out at the ocean." The Chevalier di
Leon soon realized that he could not
escape and knew that all he could do
was to wait.
The personal belongings that he
had left in the room at the Hotel
Metropole were brought to h.lm, and
great was his satisfaction when he
saw that nothing had been forgotten.
Ewn his money was intact, and a re receipt
ceipt receipt from the hotel was given him
showing that his bill had been paid.
Papers from Berlin and England
were in the reading-room and he was
informed of the doings of the world.
On the 5th of February the chancel chancellor

the chevalier was comfortably read reading

Itider Haggard, that had been pub published

The answer came as a flash, but

in the' gray eyes of the chevalier.
The chancellor was offended; the
young man dared to play with him,
the iron handed master. k
"Your jokes are out of place; you
are a clever man, but I will have to
ask -my question again. Will you
answer it?"
"I refuse!"
Their eyes clashed like the cold
steel of two swords. v

turned to the quietly sitting man.
"Chevalier, I certainly admire your
courage. I must admit my defeat."
He offered his hand to the chevalier
and turned to leave the room saying:
"Until we meet again, chevalier!"
When the chancellor returned to
Berlin he called for the Countess Ro Ro-siny
siny Ro-siny and asked her to attend a private
audience as soon as possible. She hur hurried
ried hurried to the chancellor's private office.
"My dear countess, I requested your
presence urgently, as I desire to make
you a gift that I am sure you will be
glad to accept."
The countess looked questioningly
at her dictator.
"You have asked me several times
what happened to the Chevalier di
Leon, your gallant tknlght and. dancer,
and I have found -him for you; mora
than that, I will turn him over to
you for safe keeping."
The countess' beautiful face became,

To show you how much I trust you
and your ability, I give, you carte

If you should find, it necessary, you
may even elope with him. Here is a

"I think I know what my duties are,

"When your mission is at an end."
The Countess Rosiny picked up the
documents, looked them over and
placed them in her handbag.
The punctilious chancellor escorted
her to his office door and bade her
goodby, wishing her good fortune.
When the door closed behind the de departing
parting departing countess the chancellor rubbed
his hands with satisfaction. "I am
glad she took the commission so calm calmly.

can withstand those violet eyes you
are not an ordinary mortal but a
saint."
The countess beautiful face was
set and determined; she had not spok spoken,

Three days later the captain told
his prisoner that a new guest was expected;-that
she was a lady of the
court, charged with conspiracy against
the government.
The chevalier laughed. T ; should
not be surprised to find an bid ac acquaintance

The captain's eyes grew round and
his honest face expressed surprise, but
he made no comment.
The following morning Countess Ro Rosiny
siny Rosiny arrived. The apartment adjoin adjoining
ing adjoining that of the chevalier was given her
and the prisoners met in the presence
of Captain Euler at the breakfast
table.
The greeting that Chevalier di Leon
gave was quite a surprise to the count countess;

not the-least sign that he had ever
met her before. When the breakfast
was over he retired to the reading reading-room,'

him, without the captain.
"You don't seem to recognize me,

He glanced around cautiously, and

When the month of February was
gone he felt a longing for the.free air
and his thoughts began to concentrate
upon an attempt to make a strike for
liberty. -He examined all the devices
that were arranged to prevent escape
from the prison.-
The Countess Roslny noticed the
change that had come over the cheva chevalier
lier chevalier and one evening she began to talk
about the moon and stars, saying that
spring was at the door. The chevalier
listened to the sweet voice of the wom
an who sat opposite to him quietly.
"Tell me, chevalier, are you of
stone? Have you no human feelings
whatever? ",
"I certainly have, countess ; Indeed,
I am well endowed la that respect."
"Haven't you felt happier since I
came to share your: solitude ?"-
He looked at her with those bold,
penetrating gray eyes for a long time.
"Countess, I admire you, and you
are the pleasantest comrade that I
ever had, but I am troubled. The con
tinuous indoor life is beginning to tell
on me. I am used to much exercise
in the open air, and I have many
things that I am "worried about."
' A few days later Captain Euler told
the prisoners that they would be al allowed
lowed allowed to spend the evenings on the
roof of the building.
The countess watched Chevalier dl
Leon's face very closely when the cap captain
tain captain told them this and saw-the gleam
of real pleasure in his eyes.
That evening they were taken to
the roof of the building; to be accu accurate,
rate, accurate, to a section of the roof which
was surrounded by a high wall, so
high that It prevented them from see seeing
ing seeing the courtyard beneath, or anything
but the stars and the pale face of the
full moon.
It was springtime.
"Don't you think this would be an
ideal place to send up fire rockets?"
He looked toward the stars; his eyes
wandered over the dark blue firma
ment restlessly, i
"You are playing with fire all the
time," remarked the countess, as she
moved nearer to the chevalier.
"Have you ever heard of a case
where people were married In a pris
on?" she continued.
"No, I never have." r :
"Chevalier, will you tell me one
thing- frankly, honestly?" Her voice
was tender and soft.
"Anything.you ask, countess."
"Are you engaged tc be married?"
"I am not." The firmness of his
voice was enough to assure the count countess
ess countess that he told the truth.
"Are you in love ?"
"In love?" he repeated thoughtfully.
"I don't know; all I know Is that I
have an image, a saint enshrined in
my heart, of whom I think, for whose
welfare I am fighting and suffering. If
that is lpve, then I am in love."
The countess eighed, a sob. broke
from her, heaving bosom and she let
her shoulder lean heavily against him;
she buried her face in his shoulder
and the tears trickled down her soft
cheeks as she, sighed:
"I 'am so very, very unhappy."
The chevalier bent his head over
her and his eyee became dark for a
second; then he folded her in his
arms and their lips met in a kiss.
'The spell was short; the next mo moment

chevalier picked her up and placed
her on the bench again, as. if she were
a little child; then he turned and ran
