THURSDAY, FEBKUARY 21,1918. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNEIjLSVlJUUn, fa. ' The king looked at him, and placed | Ills hand on the bowed pay head, i Then his eyes turned to Annunclatal and rested there. It was as If he eaw i 2jer, not as the wabltterfd woman of late years, but as the child of the vromnn he had loved. , "A. good friend, nnd a good daugh- j ·ter," he said clearly. "1'ew men die; so fortunate, and fewer sovereigns." 'His hand moved from Mottlich's head, 'and rested on the photograph. The elder sister leaned forward and touched his wrist "Doctor!" she said sharply. ' Doctor Weiderman caine first, the| 'others following. They grouped j [around the bed. Then the oldest of .them, who had brought Annunciata! -Into the world, touched her on the 'shoulder. ' "Madame 1" he said. "Madame, I-Ms majesty has passed away." ! Mettlich staggered to Ills feet, and took a long look at the face of his old ; so\ereign and king. In the meantime, things had been happening In the room where the council waited. The council free of the restraint oE the chancellor's pres-, ;ence, had fallen into low-voiced consultation. What was to be done?! [They knew already the r amors of the' Wreets, and were helpless before them. ·They hod done what they could. But Ithe boy was gone, and Uie city rising.' [Already the garrison of the fortress had been ordered to the palace, but, it could not arrive before midnight-, iFrlese had que*tioned the wisdom of I*,' fit that, and was for flight as scon as' the king died. Bayerl. on the other hand, urged a stand. In the hope that the crown prince would be found. j Their voices, lowered at first, rose acrimoniously; almost tb*'y penetrated to the silent room beyond. On to the! discussion cnrne ??ikky T.arlsch, cov- fered with dnst and "potti-d with froth !fro:n hi? horso. He entered without ceremony, his boyish fnce drawn and ·white, hi* cap gone, his eyes star-' "The chancellor?" he said. Some one pointed to the room be-, yont!. | Xltky hesitated. Then being yonng' iiml drnmatic. even In tragedy, he uu- Juirfcled his sword belt and took It off, ' ·placing it on a table. "Gent^men," he said, "I have coma to Mirrradcr myself." The council stared. '·For v.hit reason?" demanded Mar- Khali coldly. "I tu-l.cve it .is cal.ed li gh treason." He cl'iied his eyes for a moment, "It Is het-ausr of my uefllcc'ice that this thing lias happened. HL was in my dinrge, and I left him." Iso oae said anything. The council looked at a loss, rather like a flock of shoup coafronting some strange animal. "I would have shoi myself," said Kikky Larisdi, "but it u as too easy." Then, rather at a lo?s as to the exact etiquette of arresting one's self, he bowed slightly and widted. The door into the klng\ bedchamber opened. The chancellor came through, his face working. It closed behind him. "Gentlemen of the council." he said. "It Is my duty--my iluty--to announce--" His voice broke; his grizzled chin o.uiverert: tears rolled down his cheeks. "Friend*;." he .said pitifully, "our good kin; rnde--Is dead 1" damned. The crown prince, who was of an age with the American lad upstairs, the crowny prince was In the hands of his enemies.

"What, then, If this rumor was true? Where was the little klngS Revolution, now, in tho making. A flame ready to blaze. Haotily, on the outskirts of the throng, a delegation formed to visit the palace, and learn tho truth. Drams were now 'beating steadily, -filling the air with their throbbing, almost drowning out the solemn tolling of the bell. Around them were ralljj,- Ing angry groups.
