"Courage" whispered Itelln and I
tv as before the King. In the first two
steps I took on entering the room I
perceived thnt there had been a scene.
Sully was standing against the open
window his back to the light and
gravely stroking his heard. The mar-
shal was pacing backward and forward
in an agitated manner and the king
himself wus leaning against a high
desk beating n tattoo with his flijgers
on the veneer.
As de Belin presented me I bent to
my knee and there was a dead silence
broken only by Henry renewing the
quick impatient tapping of his fingers
on the woodwork of his desk. He was
what was unusual with him when in
Paris In half armor nnd perhaps in
compliment to the king of Spain for it
was the anniversary of tho treaty of
Vcn ins wore the senrlet and ermine-
lined mantle of the Toison d'Or. In the
silence my ejes unconsciously caught
the glitter of the collar nnd 1 could al-
most read the device "Pretluin non
vile lnborum" on the fleece.
"You mnj rise monsieur" the king
said nt last coldly nnd added: "And
jou may speak. It is because 1 under-
stand that 1 have for the moment e-
cusedjou now what havejoutosaj ?"
As ho spoke his glittering ejes met
mo full in the face and for the mo-
ment I could not find words.
"Ventre St. Grisl" und Henry picked
up a mclocotin from a salver that was
by him nnd plnjed with it between his
fingers "you could not have been born
under tho two cows on the field or else
jou would have found jour tongue ere
this M. d Atirinc jou are not of the
south are jou?"
"No sire though mj father was gov-
ernor of Prov ence and married into the
"If so j ou slrould be a perfect Chrj s-
ostom. What have jou to saj'?"
1 had regained my courage bj' this
nnd took the matter in both hands:
"Your majesty I will speak I charge
the marshal Due delllron with being a
traitor to j-ou nnd to Prnnre 1 charge
him with conspiring "
It was lliron's voice furious and
cracked with rage thnt rang through
the room; but Henry stopped him with
a word and then 1 went on repeating
exactly what is know n and what I have
described before. When it was over the
king turned to. thu marshal who burst
out in a passion of upbraiding calling
God and his own services to witness
that his hands were clean "and is the
word of this man to be believed?" ho
concluded "this man who was openly
In arms against the king w ho Is know 11
as a brawler In the streets who is even
now trjlng to win the hand of a rojal
ward with not a penny piece to line his
doublet ockets who Is excluded from
the king's peace Is his oath to be tak-
en before the word of n peer of France?
Slre.uiy father died bj jour side and I
I will say 00 more itelleve him if jou
" fc rsJ fr
will. Here Is my sword I It has served
jou well" aud unbuckling his sword
the marshal flung himself on his knees
beforo the king and presented him with
the hilt of his blade.
Astonished nnd silenced by this nu-
daclous outburst 1 could say nothing
but saw Sully and de Uelln exchnnge n
strange smile. The king however was
much moved. Putting his linnds on
lliron's shoulders he lifted him to his
feet. "Ulron my old friend" he said
"the oaths of this man hnd n hundred
such ns he are but tiR n featherweight
against your simple word. Messieurs
It Is because I wished the marshal to
know that 1 would hear nothing behind
a man's back that I would not repeat to
his own face that V have allowed M.
d'Aurlac n free rein to his tongue. In
fine I believe no word of this incredible
tnle M.d'Aurlnc"and he turned tome
"1 give jou 84 hours to quit Prance
nnd never cross my pnth again."
With my heart boiling with rage I
made for the stalnvaj'. I did not dare
to look for mndarnc. There w as enough
despair on inj' face to enable her to read
it like a book were she to see me and
I had no doubt she had. I felt I had
miscrablj'fallcd. There was one chance
however nnd that was to urge her to
instant flight aud 1 determined to ride
straight to the Itue Vnre'nne nnd there
await cither madame's or Putin's re-
turn and induce them to adopt this
At this moment some one came in mj
way and stepping aside to let him pass
'I caught sight of madnme with both de
llelln and the Huguenot at her bide.
She was not three feet from me nnd
held out her hand snj lng: "Courage I
know all." I held her small fingers for
n moment nnd then the ribbon by which
her fan vvas slung to her wrist somehow
slipped and the fan fell to the ground.
I picked it up nnd on handing it to her
caught a whisper: "Coiflier to-night"
and then with n bow I went en. Ten
steps more brought me to the head of
the stolrwnj' and Collllcr was standing
there. "Would jou have jour fortune
told monsieur?" he nbked.
"Will to-night suit jou?" I answered
"To-nlglitvvill betoolate monsicurle
chev alicr look in that as j ou ride home
nnd jou will see nnd now go."
With n turn of his wrist he produced
n smnll red ball of polished wood and
placed It In my )iands nnd then moved
backwnrds amongst the crowd.
It did not tnke me five minutes more
to find Couronne but as I turned her
hend on reaching the gntes of the town
towards the river face I heard de
Belin's quiet voice behind:
"Not that way d'Aurlac jou come
UNDCD THE LIMES.
It mattered little to me if I rode a
portion of the waj back with dc Belln
nnd so I turned Couronne's head ns he
wished. Before setting oiT however he
gave some rapid nnd whispered orders
to Vallon emphncizing them with n
loud "Quick mind jou anddonot fall."
"It Is not likely monsieur" nnsw ercd
Vallon nnd then set oft.
The crowd was ns great as ever and
we were compelled to go slowlj-. Look-
HE FELL EXACTLY OVER THE PAPER.
lng for a moment to mj- right ns we
went forward I saw Vallon making ns
much haste as he could in the delivery
of his message and I wished to mjself
that mj own stout-hearted knnvc were
with me; one blndc such as his was
worth a half-dozen hired swords.
It vvas my intention to leave de Belin
nt his hotel nnd mnke my vvnj' ns
qulcklj' as possible to my lodging nnd
thence taking tho risk of the king's
warning go straight to the Due Va-
renne and) urge niadume to instnnt
flight. Mj house of cards had come
down n fluttering heap ns the first
f storj was raised nnd to mj mind there
was nothing for it but n sharp spur nnd
a loose rein. I wished too for n mo-
ment of leisure to exnmine Coifller's
gift. I had little doubt that it com ejed
n message orn warning nnd the sooner
I got at its contents the belter.
In the meantime Belln rode by mj
side whistling a innreh to himself
whilst n couple of lackejs immediately
behind us shouted themselves hoarse
with nn insistent "Wnj wnj for mon-
sieur le comptel"
This crj' of theirs wns being constant-
ly echoed by a capuchin who mounted
on n mule with his hood drawn over his
face so un to show little but his ejes
nnd n poition of n grnj beard kept al-
ternately flinging nn "Ave!" and a
"Way! way!" to the crowd the whiles
he struck close to our heels having evi-
dently made up his mind to follow the
old saw the stronger the companj the
freer the road.
I know not why it was but the jing-
ling notes of the tune my friend whis-
tled irritated me bejond measure and
nt last ut the corner of the Hue Per-
rnult I could stand It no longer and
reining in held out my hnnd.
"I mubt sny good-by here Belln. We
will meet again andi meet in better
times I trust for me. In the incnn-
whlle let me thank jou mj friend the
rest of xnj- business lies in my own
He laughed and said: "Xot jet good-
by; and as for jour business there Is
somo of it in Coifller's wooden ball. I
would open that here before jou decide
to leave me."
"Morbleu! You all seem determined
to speak to me In riddles. Whj- can j ou
not saj plainly what you mean and
besides this is no place to read."
"It Is as good nb any other. See here
d'Aurlac! I slipped1 out of the king's
cabinet as he spoke to j-ou told mndnme
how jour affair wns progressing; she
herself bad something to communicate
to jou; the matter was pressing and at
thlngsstoodshe could not tell jou there.
As for jour being treated like n pawn
I give j ou my w 01 d It w as bej ond me to
help that; but If jou come with me jou
will learn many things within the hour.
In the meantime open the ball maul It
was a lucky thing Coiflier was there."
Withoutnny further hesitation 1 drew
forth Collller's gift. It was as I have
said a hollow wooden globe und was
made In two parts which could be
joined together or separated by n turn
of the wrlsU I held it In my hands for
a moment or so nnd then opened it and
had just pulled forth the paper It con-
tained when by III chance ub It seemed
the capuchin who was urging his mule
past us blushed violently against my
horse with the result that the paper
slipped from between by fingers and
fluttered to earth. Couronne after her
first start was steady enough but the
monk's ill-conditioned mule kicked and
plunged bringinghlm apparently hcavi-
Ij to the ground. He fell exactly over
the paper and lay there foru moment
face downNvnrd resting on one elbow. I
sprang down ns much to get the paper
ns to assist him but ns I did bo he
scrambled to his feet with n "hundred
pardons monsieur for mj" clumsiness"
nnd then hastily turned nnd. hurried
nftcr his mule which was alrendj manj
jnrds ahead behaving after its kind
and whose speed was notdlminishul bj
the sticks btoncs nnd oaths filing nt
him and there was a roar of Inughter a
mob will laugh or hiss nt the merest
trifles as the lank figure of the capu-
chin sped nlong in pursuit of his beast
nnd vanished after him down n side
Belln himself joined in the merri-
ment nnd I picked up the paper mud-
dy nnd much soiled. Smoothing it out
ngainst the Hup of mj saddle I made
out the vvord-s: "To-night under the
limes in the Tullcrles nt Compline."
There was no doubt about the writing
and thrusting the precious scrap into
my breast pocket I remounted. As I
did so de Belln said: "Well have jou
changed jour plans?"
"Partlj ; but I think I shall go back-
to my lodging."
"Do nothing of the kind ns jet. 1
have asked Pnntln to meet us at the
Tw o l'cus j our ow n ordlnarj' Vallon
has gone to call him; jou can give him
an j- orders there. You ow e me as much
ns to jleld tome In this."
It would have been ungracious not to
have agreed and I told Libois I would
go with him.
"Hasten then! The road is eleaier
now thanks to the capuchin or rather
to his mule. Bj the way did jou see
the monk's face'.'"
"A pitj ! I tried to but fniled In the
attempt. His voice was familiar to me
and he sccined wonderfully active foi
an old man."
As we pulled up at the ordlnarj- and
dismounted Belin exclaimed: "Xow for
our supper I I am of those w ho can mil j
fight under a full belt nnd I would
ndvibe jou d'Aurlac jou who will
have fighting to do very boon perhnps
to follow mj' advice and mnke the best
use jou enn of j our knife."
I laughed out some replj nnd then
turning to mine hobt ordered refresh-
ment for both mun nnd beast nnd di-
rected that our supper should be
seived In a piivatc room.
"And observe." cut in Belin "If
Maitre Pnntin nrrives let him be shown
up to us at once;."
How well do I remember that small
room in the Two 1'cus with the dark
oak wainscoting the furniture thnt
age had polished the open window
showing the j ellow sunset between the
high-roofed and manj'-gnbled houses
the red Prontignnc sparkling like ru-
bles in our long-necked glnsbes and the
deft herviee of Susette the landlord's
daughter w hose prettj-lips pouted with
disappointment because no notice was
taken of her good looks bj the two env
allcrs who supped together whose
faces were ho grave and whose ppeecl
wns In tones so low as to be heard onlj
bj each other. At labt we were left to
ourselves nnd Belin who hnd been ex-
plaining many things to me that I knew
not before euddenlj- rose and begun
to pace the room sajing: "See here
d'Aurlnc I hove helped jou for two
reasons. One because I love Pi mice
and the other because I love jou. Hen-
ry hns ordered the marriage of .Madame
de laBldache w ith d'A j"en to be celebra-
ted to-morrow. He gave thnt order to-
daj to put nn end to the Importunities
of the mnrsTnl in regard to de Gomer-
011. I know this nnd mndame knows
it too. In plain language jou must
plaj n bold stroke for the woman jou
love take her awaj to-night."
"That was partlj arranged we are
to go to Switzerland."
"You will never reach the frontier.
Look there 'is- mj- castle of Mourmeton
In Champagne. It Is old and half in
ruins. See here is mj' signet. Take
it bIiow it to Grlngel the old forester
there; he will take jou to n hiding
place. Stay there until the nrtnlr blow s
over and then to Switzerland or else-
where if you will; In the meantime I
pledge jou the fnith of de Belin that
no stone will be left unturned to effect
j our pardon."

The Mule Knew.
Several jeur ago there lived in Cin-
cinnati a mule which wasemploj ed b a
street railwaj- enmpanj In hauling ears
up a steep incline. This animal was un-
hitched in front of the rrgular team
and unhitched ns soon ns the car ar-
rived at the top ot the hill. It made a
certain number of trips in the forenoon
(I have forgotten the number but will
sny 50 for the sake ofconvcnience)nnd
n like number in the afternoon resting
for an hour at noon. As soon ns the
mule completed Its 50th trip it inarched
away to Its stnble without orders from
tts driver. To show that it was no- In-
fluenced bj- the sound of the faetcrj'
whistles and bells the following re-
markable action on the part of this ani-
mal is vouched for bj the superintend-
ent of the line who gave me these data.
On a certain occasion during 11 musical
festival this mule wus transferred to
the night shift and the very inMant it
completed its 50th .trip It started for the
stables. It took the oorabli.ed efforts of
several men to make it return to its
duty. At night there were no bells or
whisiles to inform the creatures that
"quitting time" had corae; It had count-
ed the trips and haviug finished its
full quota of 50 It thought that the
