"Yes, far safer than you would be in

'I have sent a mesgenser to Plesy for

l thanked her for remembering him in
the excitement of her homo comlntc.
beard a far aweet call through a cleft of
tho hills, and Kacle turned her head.

but lis nlsht noises can be heard through
an oponlng In tho forest Paul will soon

Philippe had died. The violation or her
childhood bv such a marrlagn rose up
that instant a wordless tragedy

"Did you know Jerome Bonaparte has

for political reasons."
"Jerome Bonapnrto Ib a houmll" 1 spoko
"And his wife a venturesome woman
to marry oven a temporary prince."
"I like her sort, madamo!"
"Do you, sire?"
"Yes, I like a woman who can love!"
"And ruin?"
"How could you ruin me?"
"Tho Salnt-Michels brought me up,"
said Eagle. "They taught me what Is
lawful and unlawful. I will never do
an unlawful thing, to tho disgrace and
rhamo of my house, A woman should
build her house, not tear It down."
"What is unlawful?"
"It Is unlawful for mo to encournge the
suit of my sovereign." ,
"Am I ever likely to be anything but

"That wo do not know. You shall keep

"I am free from them Qod knows I

"Ilcmember." she said gravely, "that
your claim was in a manner recognized
by one of the most cautious,' one of the
least ardent "oyallsta. In France."
Tho recognition she knew nothing about
came to my lips, and I told her the whole
story of thp Jewels. The snuffbox was
In my pocket. Sophie Saint-Michel had
often described It to her.
She sat and looked ut me, contemplat
ing tho stupendous loss.
"The marquis advised me not to take
thorn Into Itussla," I acknowledged.
"There Is no robbery so terrible as tha
robbery committed by those who think
they aro dolny right."
"t am one of tho losing Bourbons."
"Can anythinc be hidden In that closet
In the queen's dreeing room wall?"
mused Eagle. "I believe I could find It
ln the dark, Sophie told me so often
where the sccrot spring may bo touched.
When tho De Chaumonta took me to the
Tullerlos I wanted to search for It. But
all the state apartments are now on tho
second floor, and Madame Bonaparte has
her own rooms below, Evidently ahe
knows nothing of tho secrets of the place.
The queen kept her moat beautiful robes
in that closet. It has no visible door.
The wall opens. And wo havo heard that
a door wus made through tho back of it
to let upon u spiral staircase of stone,
and through this tho royal family made
their eecapo to Varcnties, when they
were arrested and brought back,"
Wo foil Into tsllence at mention of tho
unsuccessful llight which could have
charged history; nnd she rose and said
"Good night, (.Ire."
Next mornlns there was such a deli
cious woild to live In that breathing was
a pleasure.
1 walked under the green canopy watch
Ins tho sun mount and walling for Ma
dame de Fcrrler. When she did appear,
the old man who had served her father
followed with a tray. I could only say
"Uood morning, madamc," not daring to
add "I have acarccly slept for thinking
of you."
, "Wc will have our coffee out here," sho
told me.
It was placed on tho broad stone seat
tinder the arch of the pavilion where we
sat the night beforej bread, unsalted but
tor from the farms, the coffee, the creom,
,i,r innr tnrar. lliidamo de Fcrrler her
self opened a door In the end of the wall
nnd plunged into ma aow at me gprucu.
Her old servant exclaimed. Bhe caught
her hair In briers and laughed, tucking
It up from falling and brought off two
great roses, each the head and tho
strength of a stem, to lay beside our
plrites. Tho breath of rotes to this hour
sends through my volna the Joy of that.
"This Is the flrat day of September,
slfc "
la It? I thought H was the first day
of creation."
"I mention the date that you may not
forget It. Because I am going to give
you something' today,"
My heart leaped like a conqueror a.
Then her faco went grave, like a child a
when It Is surprised In wickedness,
"But our fathers and mothers would
huvo us forget their suffering In the
festival of coming, home, wouldn t they,
"Then why are yoq looking at me witn
"I'm not."
i..i..n, n Ann't llkn mv dreta?"
I told her It was the flrat time I had
ever noticed anything she wore, and I
liked It.
"I used to 'wear my mother's clothes.
Erneitlne and I mado them over. But
this Is new; forho now day, and the
lew life here." .... ... .....
'And the day." I reminded her, "Is the
1: of September,"
Hha laughed and opened her J,J''",
showing mo two squat keys so small that
both had lain concealed under two of
her finger tips.
r Am Mine to live you a key, sire,
-"Will it unlock a woman's mind?
"U will open a padlocked book, wst
nliiht I found a little blank-leaved book,
with wooden covers, It was fastened by
a padlock, and these keyu were tied to

"The key to n padlocked book with
nothing In it."
Her eyes tuntullzed me.
"I am going to put something In It.
Sophie Saint-Michel said I had tjlft
for putting down my thoughts, if tne
gift appeared to flophle when I was a,
child It must grow In m by use. Every
day I shall put some of my life Into the
book. And whn I dla I will bequeath It
"Take back tha key, nutdame. I have

"You would rather have It than give It

"Well, lou will have the kev to mv

"I will see that It doesn't."
"I will say, years from now "
"Twenty? O Kogle!"
"Months? That's too long."
"No, 10 years, sire."
"Not 10 years, Uagle. Say eight."
"NO, nine."
"Seven. If tho book falls Into my hands
at the end of seven years, may I open
"I may safely promise you that." slip
laughed. "The book will never fall Into
your hands."
I took from my pocket the gold snuff,
box with the portraits on tho lid. nnd
placed my key carefully therein. Kagle
leaned forward to look at them. Sho took
tho box In her hand, and gnzed with
long reverence, drooping her hend.
Young as I was, arid unskilled In the
ways of women, that key worked magic
comfort. She had given mo n link to
hold us together. The Inconsistent, con
tradictory being, old one instant with the
wisdom of the Salnt-Mlchtls. rlpplln
full of unrestrained life the next, deny
ing me all hope, yet Indefinitely tantaliz
ing, wns adorable beyond words. I
closed my eyes; the blinding sunshine
struck them through the Ivied arch.
Turning my head as I opened them, 1
saw an old man come out on the terrace.
lie tried to search In every direction,
his gray head nnd faded eyes movlns
anxiously. Madame de Fcrrler wns still
I heard her lay the snuffbox on the ston )
seat. I knew, though I could not et
myself watch her, that she stood Jp
against the wall, a woman of stone, her
lip chiseled npnrt.
"Kagle Eagle l" the old mnn cried fiom
tho terrace.
She whispered "Yes. Cousin Philippe!"
FTIVY as sho passed bctucon the
tree columns, more swiftly her jouth
and vitality died In that wnlk of a few

brief half hour, heedless and gay. When
sho reached tho arbor end, our chapter
of youth was ended.
I saw her bloodless face as she stepped
upon the terrace,
The man stretched his arms to her. As
If tho blight of her spirit fell upon him,
the light died out of his faco and he
dropped his arms at his sides.
IIo was a courtly gcntloman, cadaverous
and shabby as he stood, oil the breeding
of past generations appearing ln him.
"Eaglo?" ho said. The tone of piteous
apology went through me llko a Bword.
She took his hands and herself drew
them around her neck. He kissed her on
both cheeks.
"O Cousin Philippe!"
'I havo frightened you, child! I meant
to send a mossage tlrst but I wanted to

"Cousin rhillppe, who wroto that let

He looked toward the chateau and lifted

With gracious courtesy, restialnlng an
Impulse to punge up tho steps, ho gave
her his arm; and sho swayed against It
as they entered.
When I could see them no more, I rose,
nnd put my snuffbox In my breast. Tho
key rattled In It.
A snvago need of hiding when so
wounded, worked first through the dis
order that lot me seo none of the amen
ities ot leiwe-taklng. self-comamnd, con
duct. I was beyond the gates, bars-headed,
walking with long strides, when an old
mill caught my eye, and I turned toward
It, as wo turn to trifles to relieve us from
unendurable tension.
Tho water dripped over the wheel and
a long green beard trailed from Its chin
down the sluice. In this quieting com
pany Skpnedonk spied me as ho rattled
past with the post-carriage; and, con
sidering my behavior at other times, ha
was not enough surprised to waste any
good words of Oneida.
He stopped the carriage and I got In.
ilo pointed ahead toward a curtain of
tiees which screened the chateau,
"Paris," I answered,
"Paris," he repeated to the postilion,
and wo turned about. I looked from hill
to stream, from the fruited brambles ot
blackberry to reaches of noble forest,
realizing that I should never see thoao
lands again or the neighboring crest
where my friend the Marquis slept.
Wa posted the distance to Parts In two
What tha country was like or what
towns we passed I could not this hour
doclare with any certainty. At first
making effort and groping numbly ln my
mind, but the second day grasping de
termination, I formed my plana .and
talked them over with Skenedonk. We
would sail for America on the flrat con
venient ship, waiting In Parla only long
enough to prepare ror me poat journey
to a port. Charges must at once be set
tled with Doctor Chantry, who would
willingly at.iy In Parla while tha De
Chaumonta remained there.
Beyond the voyage I did not look. The
first faint tugging of my foster country
began to pull me as It has pulled many
a broken wretch out of tho conditions of
the older world.
I drove to his hotel in the Faubourg
St. Uermaln for my possessions. It was
closed, the distant relative who Inherited

taste, The caretaker, however, that

I sent him out to buy. Ho gave me a
letter from my friend which he had held
to deliver on my return In enso nny ac

care of me was service rendered to the
I sat ln tho garden with tho letter
spread upon the table whore wo hod
dined. It brevity was gay. The writer
would havo gone under the knife with
a Jest. Ho did not burden me with nny
kind of counsel. We had touched. We
might' touch again. , 1 1 nns as If n soul
sailed by waving Its hat.
"My Dear Boy:
"t wanted you, but It was best you
should not stay nnd behold the depravity
ut your, ciders. It Is about a woman.
Mny you come to a better throne than
tho unsteady one of France.
Your friend nnd servant,
Etlenue du Piessy
Oarllc Is tho spice of life, my boy."
For no sooner wns I on the street than
a sense of being umnlstnkably watched
grew upon me. I scarcely caught any
body In the net. A succession of vanish
ing people passed me from one to an
other A working man In his blouse eyed
me; and disappeared, ln the afternoon
It was a soldier who turned up near my
elbow, and In the evening ho wns suc
ceeded by an equally Interesting old
woman, I might not have remembered
these people with distrust If Skenedonk
had not told me he wns trailed by chang
ing figures, and ho thought It was time
to get behind trees.
Bcllenger might have returned to Paris,
nnd set Napoleon's spies on tho least be
friended Bourbon of ull; or tho pollen
upon a man escnped from Stc. Pelagic
nfter choking a sacristan.
Thp Indian nnd I wore not skilled In
disguises a our watchers were. Our
.ni'ty lay In getting out of Paris. Skene
donk undertook to stow our belongings
in the poatchalHe at tho last minute. I
vcnt to De Chaumont's hotel to bring
tho money from Doctor Chantry and to
take leave without appearing to do so.
Mademoiselle de Chaumont seized mo as
I entered. Her carriage stood In the
court. Miss Chantry was waiting In It
while Annabel's mnld fastened her glovo.
"O I.azarre!" the poppet cried, her
henrtlness going tlnoqgh mo like wine.
"Are you back? And how you are
changed! They must havo abused you
In Itussln. We heard you wont to Itus
sla But since dear Marquis du Plessy
died we never hear the truth about any
thing." I acknowledged that I had been to Rus
sia. "Why did you go there? Tell your denr
cst Annabel. She won't tell."
"To se a lady."
Annabel shook her fietwork of misty
"That's treason to me. Is she beauti
ful?" "Very."
"Perfectly "
"Well, you're not. By the way, why
aro you looking so wan It she Is beautiful
and kind?"
"I didn't say she was beautiful and
kind for me. did I?"
"No, of course not. She has JJIlled you,
the wretch. Your denrest Annabel will
console you!" She clasped my arm with
both hands. "Madamo do Ferrler's
husband Is alive!"
"What consolation Is there In that?"
"A great deal for me. She has her
estates back, nnd ho was only hiding
until she got them!"
"May I enter?" said tho humblest of
voices outside the door.
We heard a shuffling stop.
Annabelr-niado a faco nnd .clenched -her
hands. The sprite was so harmless 1
laughed nt her mischief. She brought In
Doctor Chantry as she had brought me.
Chattering with every breath, Annabel
entrained us both to tho court, my poor
master hobbling after her a vlctoin, and
staring nt me with hatred when I tried
to get a word In undertone.
I put Annabel Into the conch and Mlsa
Chantry made frigid room for mo.
"Husten yourself, Iazarre," said Made
moiselle do Chaumont.
I looked back nt tho poor man, who
was being, played with, and she crledl
out, laughing
"Did you go to Ttussla a Parisian to
come back a bear?'
I entered her coach, Intending to takV
my leave aa Boon as I had seen Count
de Chaumont, Annabel chattered all ths
way about civil marriage, and directed
Miss Chantry to watt for us whllo wo
went In to the Mayor. I was, perhaps,
too Indifferent to tho trick. "The usually
sharp governess, undecided and piqued,
But still
The count was not In the Muyor"s office.
A civil marrlnge was golnR forward, and
a strange bridal party looked at us.
"Now, Lozarre," the strategist confided,
"Your dearest Annabel Is going to cover
herself with Parisian disgrace. You
don't know how maddening It Is to have
every step dogged by a woman who
never was, never could have been
and manifestly never will be young!
WoBn't that a divine flash about the
corbellle and tho mayor? Miss Chantry
will wait outsldo half a day. As I said,
she will be tired of sitting In the carriage.

Doctor Chantry could not bo found

Attorneys Announce Plan to
Ask Judge of Court No. 4
for Injunction
A new fight for a preliminary Injunc
tion to restrain the city from enforcing
the antl-Jltnty ordinance will be begun
next Tuesday by Harry M. BerkowlU and
Harry Shapiro, attorneys for the lnlted
Motor Bus Company. These attorneys
were the men who were refused an In
junction by Judge Ferguson yesterday at
the sama time he refused an application
for a similar Injunction to Michael Fran
els Doyle, attorney for the Philadelphia f i
uiuiey Association anu tne Boutu mil
delphla Jitney Owners' AasoclaUon.
Tho renewed action to be taken on
Tuesday, as announced by Harry M. Berk
owltz, will be started In Common Pleas
Court No. 4, Mr, Berkowltz announced
that, since Judge Ferguson had not at
tacked tho merits ot his clients' bill In
equity, and had simply refuaed to take
action on it because he declared It was
Inexpedient for him so to do when hi
sitting aa temporary vacation Judge was
about to end and the matter could coma
beforo tha regular sessions of court, ha
would arrange to have a Judge of No. (
Court hear the application, Mr. Berk
owltz had entered hi bill in Common
Pleas Court No. 4 and had called on Judgs
Ferguson to hear the petition In No. 3
Court, because he wa tha only Judge
available and because none of the No. 4
men were In the city.
He and his associates are confident of
winning their suit, because they claim to
havo brought up several Important ques
tions ln their complaints that were not
touched on ln the original application,
strengthening their claims for an Injunc
tion. Therefore, since Judge Ferguson
was willing to grant a preliminary In
junction on the first petition, they are
confident that they will obtain another on
their bill from a Judge ln Common Plea
Court No. 4.
Immediately after Judgo Ferguson filed
his opinion yesterday, Mr. Berkowltz an
nounced that he would Ml a new bill In
Court No. 4 In order that ha and his as
sociate could Join with the other attorney
In the battle for a permanent Injunction
nfter September 20. the date set by Judga
Sulzberger for final hearing on the origi
nal petition for a stay ot the enforcement
of the ordinance, Atter considering th
opinion of the court he changed hi plana,
Mr. Doyle also plans to put a new move
Into nctlon today or tomorrow. He will
announce what It Is soon.
