At 10:00 p. m. the great double
j doors were flung open. The master of
ceremony came in with his big gilt
cane and knocked on the floor to an-
nounce the arrival of his majesty.
The emperor, a tall, typical Prus-
sian, came first, leading the Princess
of Wales, then came the Prince of
Wales, escorting the Princess Isold;
the young emperor was not married.
The hiddeu orchestra played the old
melody, "Die Wacht am Rhein." When
his majesty finished the regular circle
the chancellor introduced' the cheva-
lier. The courtiers fell back at a mo-
tion from the emperor and he and the
chevalier spent some time in what
was apparently an intimate conversa-
tion. When the dance began he was
dismissed and the emperor waltzed
around the groat hall once with his
cousin, the Princess of Wales.
Chevalier di Leon stood alone for a
short time, watching the dancers with
interest; then the Baron von Koener
came and whispered in his ear that
the Countess Kosiny desired to dance
with him. Di Leon smiled pleasantly
and followed the baron, who led him
to a young woman of great beauty.
