ICMrrlebt, ISM. by
Now Kins Rudolph, In his great cha
grin and dismay, had himself forgotten
or at least neglwted to warn the count
of Festenburjr that his sister, I'rinceKS
Osra, was residing at the castle of
Zenda: for It was her favorite resort
and she often retired from the court
and spent many days there alone.
There she was now with two of her
ladies, a small retinue of servants, and
no mora than half a dozen guards; and
when Count Nikolas oame to the gate.
It being then after nine, she had gone
to her chamber and sat before the
mirror, dressed in a loose white gown
and with her ruddy hair unbound and
floating over her shoulders; and she
was reading an old story-book, con
taining tales of Helen of Troy, of Cleo
patra, of Berenice, and other lovely
ladies, very elegantly related and cm
bellkdlpd with fine pictures. And the
princess, being very niueli absorbed in
the stories, did not hear or notice the
arrival of the count's company, but
continued to read while 'Nikolas roused
the watchmen, and the bridge was let
down and the steward summoned.
And Siit lie fore llcr Mirror.
Then Nikolas took the steward aside
and showed him the ki:ig's order, bear
ing the king's seal; and the steward,
although both greatly astonished and
greatly grieved, could not deny the let
ter or 'the seal, but declared himself
ready to obey and to surrender the
castle; and the sergeant in command
of the guard said the same: but, they
added, since the princess wan In th
castle, they must Inform her of the
matter and take her commands.
"Aye. do," said Nikolas, sittins down
In the great hall. "Tell her not to be
disturbed, but to give me the honor of
being her host for aa long as she will:
and say that I will wait upon her, if It
be her pleasure." And he smiled to
think of the anger and scorn with
which Osra would receive the tidings
when the steward delivered them to
In this resppct the event did not fall
short of his expectations; for she was
so Indignant and aghast that, thinking
of nothing but the tidings, she flung
away the book and cried, "Send the
count here to me." and stood waiting
for him there In her chamber. In her
white gown and with her hair un
bound and flowing down over her
shoulders. And when he came she
cried. "What Is this, my lord?" and
listened to his story with parted lips
and flashing eyes, and thus read the
King's letter and saw the king's seal.
And her ey"es filled with tears, but she
lashed them away with her hand. Then
the. count said, bowing to her as mock
ingly as, ho had bowed to her brother:
"It la the fortune of the dice, ma
dame." "Yes, my lord, as you play the gjrne,"
ca Id she.
His eyes were fixed upon her. and It
fccmJ to 'him that he was more beau
tiful In her white gown and with her
hiilr unbound over her shoulders than
he had ever feltt her to be before; and
fce eyed fter clowely. Suddenly she
looked at him; and for a moment 'he
nverteij his eyes; but he looked again
end her eyts met his. For several mo
ments she stood rigid and motionless.
Then she said: "My lord, the king has
Inrt the castle of Zenda. which Is the
home and cradle of our house. It was
scarcely 't'he'klng'fl alone to lose. Have
I no title In It?"
'"It w.ui the king's ma da me, and now
W Is mine." smiled Nikolas.
"Well, titien. It Is yours." said ."he;
and. taking a step toward him, she
sobl: . "Have you a mind to venture ft
again, my lord?"
"I would venture it only agahint a
grent intake," piald he, smiling still,
while his eyes were fixed on her face,
and- marked every change In the color
Of her cheeks.
"I can play at dice as well as the
king!" she cried. "Are we not all
gamblers, we Klphbcrga?" And she
laughed bitterly.
"Bdt w'ha't would your stake he?" he
asked eneerlngly.
Princess Osra'a face was now very
pal, but iher voice did not tremble anil
ihe did not fllnoh: for the honor of her
house and of the throne was as sacred
10 her a her salvaitlon, and more than
her happiness.
stake, my lord," said she, "that
many gerMlemen have thought above
any caertle In pretHousness."
, "Of what do you speak?" he akod,
amd his voice quivered a little, us a
man's kHce In exoKement. "For, par-

don me, madame, but what have you of
such value?"
"I iave what the poorest girl has,
and It Is of the value that It has
pleased G.hI to make It and pleases men
to think it." said Osra. "And all of It
I will stake gu4iiHt the king's castle
of Zenda and its demesne."
Count Nikolas' eye Hushed and he
drew nearer to 'her; he took his dice
box from his pocket, and 'he held It up
before her, and he whimpered, In an
eager, hoaise voice:
"Name this great stake, madame,
what is it?"
"It Is myself, my lord." sakl Princess
"Yourself?" he cried wondering,
though he had half guessed.
"Aye. To be lord of Zenda Is much.
Is It not more to be husband to the
king's sister?"
"It Is more.' 'said he, "when the
king's sister Is the Princess Osra." And
he looked ivt her now with open d
mlratkm. Hut ho did not heed his
glance, but with face pule us dentin,
she seized a small table and drew It
between them, and cried. "Throw,
then, my lord! We know the stakes."
"If you win, Zenda la mine. If 1 win,
you are mine."
"Yes, I ami Zenda also," said she.
"Throw, my lord."
"Shall we throw thrice, madame, or
once, or how often?"
"Thrice, my lord,' she answered, toss
ing 1'ack her hair behind her n.M'k. and
holding one ha ml to her side. "Throw
iirs't," she added.
The count rattled his box. nnd his
throw was seven. Osrsi took the box
from 'him, looked keenly and delliantly
In his eyes, and threw.
"Fortune is with you, madame," said
he. biting his lips. "For a five nnd a
four make nine, or I err greatly."
lie took the box from her; Ills hand
shook, but hers was tlrm and steady;
and again he threw.
"Ah. it Is but live," said he Impa
tiently, and a frown settled on his
"It Is enough, my lord," said Osra,
and pointed to the dice that she had
thrown, a three and a one.
The count's cyt-s gleamed again, and
he sprang to her and was alniut to seize
the box. Itut hn checked himself sud
denly and bowed, saying:
"Throw first this time, I pray you,
madame, If It be not disagreeable to
"I do not care which way It Is." said
Osra, and she sho-k the box and made
her third cast. And when she lifted
the box. the face of the dice showed
seven. And a smile broadened on the
count's face, for he thought surely he
could beat seven, he that had beat
eleven, and thereby won the castle of
Zenda, which now he staked against
the Prlncers Osra. Hut his eyes also
were w.r" keenly and attentively on
her, ami he held the box poised, shoulder-high.
In his right hand.
Hut then a sudden a faintness and
sickness seized upon th'e princess, and
the composure that had hitherto up
held her failed: she could not meet his
glance nor could she bear to see the
fall of the dice; but she turned away
her head before lie threw and stood
thus with averted face. And he kept
attentive eyes on her and drew very
near to the table so that he stood right
over It. And the Princess Osra caught
sight of her own face In the mirror and
started to see herself, pallid and ghast
ly, and her fuce was drawn as though
she were suffering some great pain.
Hut she uttered no sound.
The Mice rattled In the box; they
rattled on the table; there was a pause
while a man might quickly count a
dozen; and then Count Nikolas of Fes
tenbtirg cried out' in a voice that
trembled and tripped over the words:
"Kight. eight, eight."
But before the last of the words had
left his sinking lips the Princess Osra
faced round on him like lightning. She
rnlsed her hands so that the loose
white gown fell back from her rounded
arm. and her eye flashed and her lips
curled as she outstretched her arm at
him and crledr
"Foul play."
"For. a she watched her own pa1?
face In the mirror the mirror that
Count Nikolas had not heeded she had
seen him throw, she had seen him
stand for an instant over the dice he
"Yes, and ends Also," She Sold,
had thrown with gloomy and mad
dened facerand then she "had seen a
light, swift movement of his left hand,
as his fingers deftly darted down and
touched one of the dice and turned it.
And all' this she had wen before he
had cried elgW! Therefore now she
turned on him, and cried, "Foul play,"
and before he could speak she darted
by him towards the door. But he
sprang forward and caught her by the
arm above the wrist and gripped her,
and his fingers-- cut Into the tender
flesh of her arm,' as he gasped, "You lie!
Where are you going?"
But her voice rang out clear and
loud In answer:
"I am going to tell all the world that
Zenda Is ours again, nnd I am going to
publish In every city In the kingdom
that Count Nikolas, of Festonburg, Is
a common 'cheat and rogue and should
be whipped at the cart's tall through
the streets of Htrelsau. For I saw you
In the mirror my lord, I saw you In
the mirror." 'And she ended with a
wild laugh tho,t echoed through the
room. ,
Still he gripped her arm and she did
not flinch; for an Instant he looked full
In her eye; mid covetuousness and
desire and shame came altogether upon
him ' and overmastered him, and he
hissed between setteeth:
"You shan't! 'By God, you shan't!"-
"Ay, but I. will, my lord." said Osra.
"It Is a fine tale-for the king and for
your friends In Strelsau."
An Instant lonVer he held her wtiere
she was; and he gasped and licked his
lips.' Then, he suddenly dragged her
with him towards a couch, seising up
a coverlet that lay nn a couch he flung
It round her: h folded It tight about
her, and he drew H close over her (face.
She could not cry out or move. And
he lifted up and swung her over hlo
shoulder, and, opening the door of the
room, dashed down the stairs towards
the reat hall.
In the great hall were the six of the
king's guard, and some of the servants
of the castle, and many of the people
who had come with Count Nikolas;
they all sprang to their feet when
they saw hira. But he took no heed
of them but rushed at a run through
the hall, and out under the portcullis
and across the bridge, which had not
been raised since he entered. And
there at the end of the bridge a lackey
held bis horse; and he leapt on his
horse, setting one hand on the saddle
and still holding Osra; and then he
cried aloud:
"My men, follow me! To Festen
burg!" (To be continued.) . , ,
Happening of Interest to the Staple
Trades and particularly to the Trade
In Iron, Steel and Anthracite Coul.
The ImjMirtant announcement has
just been made that the Steel Itullniak
eis' association has advanced prices of
steel rails from t-i to J:'S per ton. It
had been ktn -wii for several days past
that the matter was under considera
tion, and that, while an advance In
prices had been decided upon. It 'hail not
been determined whether to make the
Increase $2 or $4 per ton. Later in the
day a dispatch from Pittsburg stated
that an advance to $28 had been or
dered, and this was confirmed by the
Carnegie company. The price, by the
action just taken, is now about the
same as it wus In 1S'.U. Karly In that
year $-' per ton was quoted for steel
rails, but tarly in the fall the price was
first lowered to til and then to $24.
Last year another cut was made and
U2 per ton was quoti d up to within a
few weeks ago. when the price was
laised to $21. It Is of Interest to note
In this connection that those railroad
irii lingers who rightly gnuge the
trend of 'business Improvement suc
ceeded in placing their contracts at $-2
per ton. President Roberts, of the
Pennsylvania, was among -the number,
nnd bis foresight has resulted In sav
ing to his company something like
$2i)U,tkM. The present advance carries
Mie price of steel rails to $10.7 per ton
higher than the price abroad, which
was. on Sept. 7. $17.0:1. To liniiort steel
rails, however, a duty of $7.H4 per ton
must bo paid, nnd the ocean freight per
ton is $l."iti. Wins making the cost of
foreign rails at 'New York $26.37 per ton,
or $l.6J per ton less than the present
domestic price. The foreign iron and
steel markets have recently, however,
shown considerable strength and ac
tivity, and. it Is claimed, or. rather,
believed, that foreign rails cannot now
be laid down at New" York at a price
less than domestic figures. The pres
ent advance hns been Induced by re.
cent advances In raw material, the In
crease In the price of Bessemer pig iron,
which Is now $16..rj0, against less than
S10 a few months ago, the probability
that a further advance will shortly be
made In Bessemer ore, and a good de
mand for steel rails.
Two hundred railroads throughout
the I'nlted 'States are at present using
the Alexander car replaeer. which was
Invented by a Forest City man. whose
name It bears, and which a company,
composed of Scrantonians, Is putting
on the market. Joseph J. Jormyn is
president of the company; R. B. Wil
liams, vice president; John A. Mears,
manager, and John T. Richards, treas
urer. It'ls scarcely two years wince the
Invention was placed upon the market,
but so popular has it become that there
are but few roads In the United States
but what have either adopted It or are
giving It a test. The replaeer Is so
simple in construction nnd so effective
In its work that ail railroad men say
that it Is by far theibest on the market.
The new signal system which the
Pennsylvania is putting In at the
liroad street station Is thought to bo
so perfect 'that It Is almost nn Impossi
bility to have an accident on It. The
motive, power will he compressed air,
which Is conveyed from the air com
pressors through a three-Inch air pipe
to the switches and signals, at which
point the valves operating the air are
actuated and controlled by electricity.
In the territory which Is being recon
structed there will be five electric pneu
matic towers. They will do away with
all mechanical power nnd the old lever
switching towers and will .make It
considerably easier for the operators,
a. all they will have to do Is to move
a lever about the size of a lend pencil.
This will Insure a saving of time and a
more rapid movement in the operation
of trains.
The 'Baldwin, Westlnghotise people
are to make a test of the new electric
locomotive In Mouth America. ;
The Brotherhood of locomotive Fire
men will run an excursion to Pleasant
Beach nnd Syracuse tomorrow, over
Ihe Delaware. Lackawanna and West
ern. Trains will leave Hcranton at 6
oclock a. m. Caterer Ilanley will go
along to furnjsh the refreshments.

New York, Sept. 12. Speculation at
the Stock P.xchange opened steady to
firm, the result of rather liberal pur
chases of stocks for fonlsn account.
The improvement in prices was unim
portant, however, uniotintlng to less
than a point in the general list. Before
the expiration of the ili- t hour of busl
i: f s the x.dllng movement was resumed
with renewed vigor, and the early gain
was not only lost, but a decline of V
to 3 per cent, was recorded. In the
downward movement the greatest
I. si s were scored by Tennessee Coal
and Iron and the (.imagers. -The feel
ing was pronouncedly bearish at this
lime. Reports were ulloat to the effect
tnat the shipments of gold by Satur
day's Kuiopeau steamers would run
Into the millions, and us the bond syndi
cate contract with the government ex
pires shortly 'the bears made the most
of thc--e rumors. After mid-day, how
ever, the market relapsed Into dullness.
It was announced later that the l,elilgi
Valley, Lehigh 'Navigation and Head
ing companies had agreed to advance
prices of coal 10 to U0 cents per ton.
Immediately this was accepted as fore
shadowing a more import-ant deul be
tween the anthracite companies, and a
rush to cover followed. Jersey Cen
