The Kim .... OF . CHAPTER XXI. IEGFRIED, with all his effeminacy, felt a little spasm of pride or shame which prevented his making any further attempts to have It shut. It was not until he had haul to endure the rapidly cooling atmosphere for quite half mn hour that Rose had mercy on him and pulled up th« window. As he remained immov- *bl* in the corner in which he had now entrenched himself, almost hidden In hie coat and rugs, she thought he was sulking, and left him to himself. When they drew near London, however, and she h»d to consider the question of disposing of him for the night, she was obliged to break th« long silence. "Do you know London well? Where would you lik« to stay?" ghe asked. He started at the sound ol her voice, and looked at her in alarm. Rose saw that there were half-dried tears on his face, which he had been too proud to let her ae« him wipe away. She was etruck with remorse on the instant. If he had txen pampered and spoilt until no vestige of manliness could possibly be discovered'in him, was it his fault? If nig brain had been over-crammed »nd his body allowed to remain inactive till n« lo*t the proper powers of both, was he not to be pitied rather than blamed? In A rush of repentance Rose thought BO. Taking the seat opposite to him, she held out her hand to take his, and said most sweetly: "Do forgive me if I have been too hard. I only want to do what is best lor you, but I'm such a harsh, arbitrary creature that I don't set about it exactly in the right way." Poor Siegfried did not hesitate or hold aloof one moment; but bending down until his head rested on her lap, he buried his face in his hands and Bobbed convulsively. Rose did her best to soothe him, blaming herself, encouraging him with a gentle voice and kindly touch. "No, no, madam," said the young prince brokenly, between his sobs. "Do not blame yourself. It is I—I, who aa foolish, useless. I am not brave and strong, as a prince should be. But 1 am alone, my father is dead. I am tossed I know not where. Madam, be merciful to me; I shall not have long life, I think. I shall die as my father died. It is decreed." Rose Revel's strong hands closed round th« unhappy lad's shoulders, a* the maternal instinct which slumber* in the breast of every good woman sprang suddenly intovivid life within her.thrill- :a£ her voice wifin tenderness, warming her heart with pity. She raised the fair face with her hands, and looked Into Siegfried's red. wet eyes with an Intent earnestness which made him blink. "My boy, my poor boy," she said, and the words lingered lovingly on her lips, "you wSll not die, il a woman's care can keep you alive. We will hide you away somewhere, and keep you quietly until yor are strong and well, and by God's b'*-? can defy them." But it. vas typical of the vague dread they both foil of a Mysterious power and its workings, that neither mentioned a definite name or a definite danger. It was as if it hung in the air, breathed in with their breath, impalpable, awful, that they lowered their voices, gave a half-glance round, and brought their lips nearer to the ear of the other, as they alluded to the peril in which he stood. Siegfried shook his head, and repeated "defy them!" with a little hollow, mocking laugh. But he found comfort In. th« warmth and heartiness of his companion, and drawine .one of h«r Stands between both his, he said, half- pleading, half-commanding: "Sit here—by me." Rose crossed over and sat by him. "And now," she said, "we can't go to •ee this Mr. Combermere till tomorrow, s.nd I want to know where you would like to stay." But the pritice would not take upon himself the responsibility of settling the smallest thing. He trusted himself in her hands like a child, as soon as she had touched his feelings. "Anywhere, anywhere you like," said he docilely, drawing his hand affectionately over hers. "I will go with you wherever you please." Rose felt again rather irritated by this lamb-like submission to the will of a stranger. She felt, too, that the situation was rather awkward. She could not go back to some lodgings which she had occupied by herself when a student in London with this young man in tow. On the other hand, his •tate of health would not justify her in leaving him at an hotel by himself, even if she had felt that it would be eafe in other ways for her to do so. Although thwe seemed to b« no reason why Mr. 311ch«rter «hould try to snuff •at a lif« which seemed only too likely t« ticker oat shortly of it* own Record, •k* WM tM mistrustful of ftlm t* ft* tor one moment easy unless h«r chirf» mw ia sight She resolved, therefore, to tak« Siegfried to a very quiet hotel, not fw from the Law Courts, where her •tmtement that she was the medical attendant of her rather eccentric cam- Sergania. pan ion would be accepted without question. Indeed, there was no room foi doubt on this point. Siegfried had no sooner stepped out on the platfonp at EuBton than he fainted away, and she had to get the assistance of a porter to get him to a cab, where she loosened the clothes about his neck, and revived with cold water. CHAPTER' xxii. BEN he came to himself, his teeth chattered and the tears ran down his cheeks; so that, by the time they arrived at the hotel, Siegfried was such a piteous object, with livid cheeks and nose blue from cold, that It was quite unnecessary for Rose to give any explanation that he was an invalid. The only fear of the people about the place, as he staggered in, bent and shivering, was lest he should die he- tore morning. Rc?<e had no difficulty in obtaining two room* communicating the one with the other, so that she might keep watch over her charge during the night. To her surprise he sank very soon into a heavy sleep, from which he did not awake until late the next morning. Her suspicions being aroused by this, she questioned him closely, and got him at last, after several evasive answers, to confess that for the past year and more he had been in the habit of using a sleeping draught. She received the information very quietly, cnly asking who had recommended it. Again he hesitated a little, but at length said it was Donald Keith who ha.d done so. "My head used to ache so at the back," he explained, "so that I lay awake all night and could get no rest; and Donald got me this that I might have some sleep. I could not do without it now, indeed." "Of course not," assented Rose. "Let me see what it is 5 r ou take, please." It was not without great difficulty that she. conquered his reluctance to show it to her; but, by dint of patient coaxing, she at last induced him to bring her a long, figured glass bottle which she had supposed to contain smelling salts. This, he said, would hold enough for three nights. As there was one dose left in the bottle she confiscated it, and decided, from the docility -with which he submitted to this arbitrary action, that he had other supplies to draw upon. But she gave no hint of this Buspicion, and turned her attention to the sort of breakfast he made. As she had expected, he ate scarcely anything, and drank nothing but a small glass of soda-water and milk. The' meal finished, she told him to get ready to go with her to call upon Mr. Combermere. But he begged so hard to b« left at home, pleading exhaustion, that she had to give in. Not having any great measure of trust in her patient, however, she am not leave him, but sent a telegram to the solicitor, asking him to call as early as he could. In the meantime, Siegfried professed ihlmself very tired.and withdrawing to his bedroom, which communicated on one side with the small room in which she had slept, and on the other with the j sitting room where they breakfasted, he either fell or pretended to fall into a deep sleeo. Within two hours of the dispatch ot the telegram, Mr. Combermere arrived. He was a middle-aged, prosperous- looking man, but ho greeted Rose with a warmth which utterly surprised her. "I daresay you are astonished, Miss Revel," be began, "to see anything like feeling in a dry, old thing like me; but your father and I were the closest of friends throughout our college days', and though we met very little ia after I life, I never lost my old feeling for him | a? one of the grandest young fellows . that ever lived. And so you never j heard him mention my name?" I "Yes," said Rose, raising her head j after a moment's pause, "I think I have, j Percy Combermere?" ! "That's it, that's my name," said the j lawyer. "And now. Miss Revel, by j what lucky chance have I this oppor- j tunity of making your acquaintance?" j "Unlucky chance, I am afraid," mur- | mured Rose; "but what made you so ' sure I was the daughter of your , friend?" | "I heard that Charles Revel's daugh- j ter had become a, sick nurse, for one \ thing; and I see his black eyes look- | ing out from under his black brows in your face," ! "Oh. yes," said Rose, "I am like my ! poor father. I know." j Then she proceeded to narrate the i whole of the strange story in which j she had played so unwelcome a part, | and to hand him the letter from the : dead king. ; .Mr. Combermere listened to her and read the letter in utter silence, and it was not until after a long pause, during which his face had worn an expression j of the greatest severity, that he said in j a very low voice, glancing at the slosed •' folding-doors: ; "And you have got the young cub here?" | Rose was astonished at fte expression. "The prince is here," she said.

Now will you abide by my advice?" "No," said Rose, in a very low voice. "Of course not, of course not; I knew It would b« so. You are your father's child, noble-minded, resolute, pig-headed and — ridiculous', a -woman, moreover, and impervious to reason," added Mr. Combennere irritably. "But surely it must be apparent to you that you, a young unmarried woman, can't become guardian to a young man about your own age." Rose looked in front of her for a few moments, "The idea sounds ridiculous until you see the young woman and the young man," she said. "But I think I could obviate the absurdity." "How?" "By getting married." "Dear, dear, that's a strong measure. You must pardon me, Miss Revel, but I have heard of your engagement, and I can't but think the longer you delay the fulfillment of it the better it will be for you. Yon must excuse me for giving this marked and no doubt unpalatable advice - " "I have to excuse it from everybody," said Rose witti a laugh, not as if much Moved In any way by his words.

Chicago Nov. 25. — Captain Leonard A Lovering's fellow officers in the Unite< States army yesterday finished llstenin; to the testimony against him. Wltnesse; called by the accused member of the Fourth, reg-iment spoke in his defense At noon Attorney Blair, counsel fo: Captain Lovering, be^an his address for the defense, and late in the after noon Judge Advocate Hunter made hi address. Before concluding the prosecu. tion the members of the court wen over the grounds and looked at tli< stone walks over which the guard hous< prisoner had been dragged. The cour left the ball room in the officers' club house and took a walk to the prison and thence traced its wav to the place where the summary court sat Oct. 9 It was by request of Judge Advocat Hunter that the grounds were viewed Found but Two Slight Cuts. Major Lippracott, army surgeon a Fort Sheridan, was the first witness called and was the last witness of th prosecution, and testified that he was called to treat Hammond the evening t __ .— . . __ incrtaw .- , trust, as you call it, or you tenfold the misfortune this affair is bound to bring upon you." He had scarcely uttered the worda when the door of Siegfried's room opsjaed slowly and the young prince itood before them, H« looked troubled ind excited, and he glanced from th- lawyer to Rose eagerly, as if trying to read their faces. "I could not help" but. hear," he be- jcan hoarsely, in an apologetic tone; "I try to sleep, but the words you both say reach me all the same, *"~ A ' of Oct. 8, after the dragging affair. The Madam," he continued, turning to Rose, while a faint flush came into his cheeks, "it is true what he says: I am selfish—not worth running into danger for. But I am not so selfish as to let you sacnfici yourself—the thought of your marry ing is—is terrible, is distasteful to me. You must not. I have been kept like a boy; I will try to be a man, and take care of myself. I know not what thesa dangers are the gentleman speaks of, but I will be strong; I will meet them alone." Even as he spoke, however, tne color faded out of his cheeks and left them livid, his breath grew short, his voice weak, while his whole frame trembled. Thinking he was on the point of fainting, Rose hurried across the room to him, and, with a soothing, supporting hand under his arm, led him to the sofa, on which she sat down beside him. "You see. prince," she began in the rich, musical voice which had so strong an influence upon him, "unluckily for you, it does not lie with you to make or break my compact with your father. Whether you choose or not, I intend to haunt you like your shadow. There is nothing for you to do but to submit." He looked at her with grateful, timid eyes, but said nothiuc. Mr. Combermere, who had risen from his chair on the prince's entrance, now said with an air of decision, and not without subdued impatience: "You have decided, then?" "Yes," said Rose. "Very well. Then if you will let ma know your pleasure in the matter I wilJ wait on you or see you at my office and inform you of the arrangements his late majesty was pleased to make." "Tell her now," interposed Siegfried, IT, ffl vniVa trambline with eagerness. Rose inclined her head in acquiescence. Mr. Combermere bowed to the prince, who begged him to be seated. Reopening the letter Rose had given him. the >awyer glanced through it and said, turning to Siegfried: "Briefly, the provisions of your late illustrious father are these: He wishes you to reside in England, for the pres- witness said he found no wounds on Hammond's body except two small cuts on the thighs, which were not serious The line of defense was not that Hammond was not dragged. The previous testimony heard before the court really has little bearing on the case, as Lovering admitted all that has been charged. The captain, however, maintains that all he did was necessary and not contrary to good discipline- Synopsis of the Surjreon'g Story. The surgeon's story briefly was this: "Oct. 9, in the evening, I went to see Private Hammond, accompanied by a guard. He told me he had been kicked on the head and struck with a sword by Captain Lovering. I examined the man very carefully and thoroughly, beginning at the head. I found no evidence whatever of any injury, but ordered Hammond taken to the hospital. The prisoner in the evening- complained of pain in the left shoulder and in the leg's. I again examined him and found two small cuts. I marked him for light duty the next day, because he had complained and in order to give him the benefit of a very small doubt." Defense Ha» Its Innings. The prosecution here rested and th» defense put Colonel R. H. Hall, commanding at Fort Sheridan, on the stand. He said: "Captain Lovering told me that Hammond positively refused to come to the court and that he had found it necessary to drag the prisoner. I told him I highly approved of his action. We have constant trouble in handling prisoners. Captain Lovering is a most excellent officer." In cross- examination Colonel Hunter asked the witness: "If Hammond's conduct had been reported to you, would you have ordered him to drag the prisoner?" "Not specifically. I would have ordered him to bring- the man in. Yes." "Had you any other means at that time for conveying the prisoner to the court?" "Yes. There are about thirty wagons around the barracks." FORMER TROUBLE WITH PRISONERS Col. Hall Highly Commended the Action of Captain Lovering. ""What report did Captain Lovering make to you in regard to this affair?" asked Attorney Blair. "He told me of Hammond's refusal to appear before the court in direct disobedience to my orders and said that he had dragged him from tie guard house with a rope." "What comment did you make?" "I commended him highly for his action, but cautioned him to remove the rope from the prisoner's feet, before he appeared in courr." "Has there been any trouble, colonel, during the year you have !?een here, with prisoners?" the attorney asked. "There has been almost constant trouble," said Colonel Hall. "Priaeners have refused to work and there has been al- i most daily infraction of the rules.

Washing-ton, Nov. 2-f.—First 'Assistant Postmaster General Heath has transmitted to the postal administration of the German government through Second Assistant Shallenberger a comprehensive report on the employment of women in the government service. He states that it is impossible to give the exact number of women employed in the postal service. There are, however, .7,570 women postmasters and perhaps S,000 women to whom the oath of office has been administered to qualify them to assist in conducting the business of the postoffices. There are 167 women employed in the postoffice department proper. Wom«n are not debarred by rule or regulation from entering any branch of the service. In fact there are postoffices in the United States at which there are none but women employed. The same salary is paid them as to men for the same character of work. The resort says, it has been a mooted question for many years whether women can render as good general service aa men. because the latter may be transferable at all times to any position, whereas women may be confronted with duties !n a- sense indelicate or which require too much manual labor. The conlusion of the department is that altogether :he services of women have proven almost if not equally satisfactory with those of men.
