"Oh, I do so many ridiculous things! complained Beverly, remembering who she was supposed to lie. I have never seen him. you know," she added. "It la not strange, your highness. He waa educated In England and had aeon hut little of his own country when he was called to tbe throne two years ago. You remember of course that hla mother waa an Englishwoman, Iwdy Ida Falconer." "I I think I have heard some of hia history. A very little, to be lure, she explained lamely.

"I lived In Dawsbergen for a littla while aud waa ever Interested in tbe dolnga of royalty. That is s poor mans privilege, you know. "Prince Gabriel must be a terrible man," cried Beverly, her heart swelling with tender thoughts of tlw exiled Dan-ta- n and hla llttje sister. You have cause to know, aald be shortly, aud she waa perplexed until she recalled the atoriea of Gabriel's misdemeanors at tlw court of Edelweiss. Is mice Dantan at handsome as they say be &?"'hbd asked. "It is entirely a matter of opinion, be replied. "1 for one do not consider him at all prepos (leasing." Tlw day went on, fatiguing, distressing In Its length and Its happenings. Progress was necessarily slow, tho perils of the road Increasing as tbs little cavalcade wound deeper and deeper Into ibe Wilderness. Thera were timea when the coach fairly crawled along tlw edge of a precipice, a proceeding so hazardous that Beverly shuddered as if Jn a chill. Aunt Fanny slept serenely most of tbe time, and Baldos took to dreaming with his eyes wide open. Contrary to her expectations, tlw Axphalnlana did not appear, and If there were robbers In tho bills they thought I tetter than to attack the valorous looking party. It dawned upon her finally that the Axphalnlana were guarding the upper route and not tlw one over which she was traveling. Yetive doubtless was approaching Ganlook over tbe northern pass, provided the enemy bad not been encountered liefore Ijtbhot waa renebed. Beverly soon found berself fearing for tbe safety of tlw princess, a fear which at last liecame nlmost unendurable. Near nightfall they came upon three Graustark shepherds and learned that Ganlook could not be reached before the next afternoon. The tired, hungry travelers sprut the night In s snug little valley through which a rivulet bounded onward to the river below. The supper wns a scant one, tbe foragers Laving poor luck In tlw bunt for food. Daybreak saw them on their way once more. Hunger and dread had worn down Beverly's supply of good spirits; she was having difficulty In keeping the haggard, distressed look from her face. Her tender, hopeful eyes were not so bold or so merry as on the day before: cheerfulness cost her an effort, but she managed to ke-- p It fairly alive. Her escort, wretched and hnlf starved, never forgot the deference due to their charge, but strode steadily on with tbe doggedness of martyrs. At times she was Impelled to disclose her true Identity, but discretion told ).vr that deception was her best safeguard. Late In tbe afternoon of the second day the front axle of tbe coach snapped In two, and a tedious delay of two hours ensued. Bsklos was strangely silent and subdued. It was not until the misfortune came that Beverly observed the flushed condition of hla face. Involuntarily and with the compassion of a true woman, ahe touched hla hand and brow. They were burning hot Tbe wounded man was In a high fever. He laughed at her fears snd scoffsd at the prospect of blood poisoning and the hundred other possibilities that suggested themselves to her anxlons brain. YYe are close to Ganlook, he said, with tbs setting of tbe sun. "goon yon may be relieved of yonr tiresome, cheerless company, your highness." You are going to a physician, ahe said resolutely, alive and active once more, now that the worst part of tbo Journey was coming to an end.

Soon after the arrival of tho royal couple at the Palace, there will occur a dramatic episode.

Suddenly, all the window of the Palace giving on the balconies will bo thrown opt-and the bride and bridegroom will step forth, accompanied by tbo members of the royal family and tho court. Then Madrid will show how It can cheer. On the afternoon of the urn day, following another curious traditional custom.
