GREAT LOVE STORIES
By ALBERT PAYSON TERHUNE
Mcry, Queen of Scots, and Bothwell
1' '"WrigUI by ll. Auiuot )
This is tln low sioiy of a fascinat
ing, wickcil wd'.iinii and of a man who
was quite as wicked without being in
the hast fasvine.tin;;. The woman
vas Mary cjiie..n f Scots. The man
was her luisliaii'l, James Hepburn,
fail of llothwcll.
Vary inherited the crown of Scot
l;nid. In early youth she married
Kini; Framls II. of Friinee. He died
and she came back to rule Iter ow n
country. The K.ty, frivolous French
court had just suited Mary'd linht na
ture. With the harsh, wave, quarrel
pome Scots who no'v surrounded her
she had uothins in common. She
shocked them. They boif d her. For
state reasons she married hor cousin,
young Lord Darn Icy. He was a bis,
awkward, stupid, weak fellow whom
Mary grew to despise, lie was lies
1" lately nl'raid of her. and was jealous
as well. Ho had ample cause for both
emotions. The marriage was unhap
py. So was Mary's whole reign. She
disliked her piople. They distrusted
her. From the first everything seemed
to go wrong.
It was when affairs were at their
woist that Moth well loomed up big on
the political horizon. Though of high
rank, he was a ruffian adventurer, who
had more than once been mixed up In
treasonable and other unlawful esca
pades. D p. r n 1 e y
the queen's elder
ly secretary, and in a lit of rage
sought Mary's death or imprisonment,
liothwell, with a strong army at his
back, interfered In her behalf, lie
also helped to stir her dislike for
Darnley Into hatred. Soon afterward
Darnley was assassinated. Then; can
be no doubt that Bothwell caused his
murder or that Mary knew beforehand
what fate the earl had plotted for her
young husband. With Darnley out of
liie way all. was clear sailing for Both
well, lie had gained tremendous In
fluence over the queen. Where other
men nattered her he bullied her.
Where others begged for her favor
Hothwcll brutally demanded it. He
was her master by sheer force of will
and rough si length. This sort of man
appealed to Mary's fickle heart. She
loved hint more and more devotedly
the more brutal treatment she re
ceived at his hands. Whatever orders
he gave she meekly obeyed. It was
'another case of Beauty and the Beast.
Directly after Darnley's murder
Bothwell planned a master stroke in
his game of courtship and statecraft.
Ai Mary was riding hack to Hdin-
A Queen and
burgh on April 24, 1507, from u visit
to her Infant son (whoas ufterwurd
James I. of England), Bothwell, at the
head of an armed force, met her and
carried her away to Dunbar castle.
Though this daring act was supposed
to be nothing less than a piece of law
less kidnaping, it is morn than prob
able that Mary not only freely con
sented to the scheme, but had helped
to plan It. At any rate, she made no
resistance. Bothwell promptly di
vorced his faithful wife, ami on May
15, 1.1 ll" (barely three months after
Darnley's death), he and Mary were
married. Mary had meanwhile made
Bothwell duke of Orkney. But lie was,
to all intents and purposes, the real
ruler of Scotland. When he and Mary
appeared In public he used to hold
hiht cap in his hand to show he was
her subject. But Mary would snatch
the cap from him and put it on Ids
head to Indicate that he was her
equal. He tyrannized over her and be
haved toward her with none of the
courtesy or deference due her rank.
He had apparently won his life's ambi
tion and no longer troubled to show
civility to the woman to whom he
owed all. But the more cruelly he
treated her the more Mary loved hliu.
The Scotch lords hated Bothwell
and had no Idea of accepting him as
their ruler. They rose In arms and
took Mary away from him. She es
caped from them disguised as a boy
and joined Bothwell. Then the lords
marched against the lovers in open
warfare. Bothwell, who was as brave
as he wus brutal, offered to settle the
qunrrel by single
combat with any
lords might name. The challenge
was rejected. The queen's followers
deserted her. She was at the lords'
Hemmed in and unable to escape,
she kissed Bothwell good by w ith
many tears and surrendered to her
foes. Bothwell, seeing all was lost,
deserted her. and. slipping through
the enemy's lines, escaped to Norway
There he was captured, and died in
sane in a Scandinavian prison. Mary
was dethroned. She fled for protection
to England. There Queen Elizabeth
cast her into prison and later had her
nut, indirectly, tne scotcn queen
was avenged. Her descendants, the
Stuart kings, misruled England and
(by their fickleness and other evil
qualities inherited from Mary) made
that country suffer untold inlsfor

The End of
QUEEN ELIZABETH AND ESSEX
Queen Elizabeth of England at the
time this story begins was 00 years old.
She was tall, thin, and ugly and had a
fearful temper, ller teeth were black
from tobacco and decay, and she wore
a red wig. Kobert Devereux. earl of
Essex, was barely 21. He was hand
some, accomplished and of fine llgure,
lesides being one of the best edu
cated men of his day. He was popular
and seemed to have a great future In
itore. It pleased Elizabeth to fancy
berself in love with him. This love
affair was destined to make both of
the participants miserable and to end
Essex's life at ."!.
Elizabeth was the daughter of
Henry VIII. and Anne Boleyn. On the
death of her half-sister. Mary, she be
came queen of England. She surround
.'d herself with wise counsellors, and
encouraged literature, exploration and
all the arts. For this reason her reign
was England's "golden age." Eliza
beth never married. Vet she was in
the habit of falling in love with nobles
ol her own court and of carrying on
violent, flirtations with them. Their
flattery delighted her. She believed
in it all. Such men as succeeded in
making the queen think they adored
her usually rose high In power; but
Ihey found it no easy task to gratify
her tremendous vanity or to avoid her
furious temper. The best and last of
hese nobles who won her fleeting af
fections was the
A Royal younK of Ka.
Flirtation. He wa8 at
!H an accomplished soldier and emir
Mer. That he really loved Elizabeth
is very doubtful. But he was ambi
tious and jumped at so dazzling a
chance for advancing his own inter
ests. At heart he was honest and Im
pulsive. It was not as easy for him
us for his predecessors to keep on
good tenia: with the cranky old queen
r.nd to soothe her Ill-humor w ith pret
ty speeches. In fact, so tiresome did
be find the royal flirtation that he
tried to amuse himself mole once by
making love to her majesty's maids of
bonor. But this was perilous pastime.
For Elizabeth was as Jealous us she
Court life wearied young Essex.
Wars, explorations and other sorta
' ' adventure were going on all about
aim. But Elizabeth would not let hint
tnko part In any of these expeditions.
Ne could not bear to have him out
of her sight. He loved excitement and
found existence dreary at the palace.
So in 15S7, when he was 22. he slipped
away secretly nnd Joined Drake's fleet
that was sailing on Portugal. But
llzabeth sent a message after the
el. commanding Essex "at his utter
ou peril" to come back at once.

The Fall of
Back he came, angry and chagrined
in no mood to meet Elizabeth's re
preaches. In this mood he picked a
quarrel with Sir Charles Blount, on
whom the queen had also deigned to
cast a favoring eye. He and Blount
fought a duel, in which Essex was
wounded and disarmed.
Life at the court dragged on for a
while longer. Then Essex fell in love
with the clever widow of Sir Philip
Sydney and married her. The mar
rlage was kept secret for fear of the
queen's wrath. Xor was the fear in
vain. When Elizabeth learned of the
wedding she was enruged beyond
measure. Yet such was her fondness
for Essex that she at last pretended
to forgive him, and he was In a incus
ure restored to royal favor. High
honors and offices were showered
upon him. Yet Elizabeth, it seems.
never quite pardoned his crime of dar
ing to prefer another woman to her
self. His former power over her was
gone. The end was drawlug near. She
no longer forbade him to embark on
dangerous enterprises; but she man
aged to see that he got scant profit or
glory from such expeditions. Once,
when he protested against a piece of
niatilfest injustice on her part. Eliza
boxed his ears,
and with a volley
of profanity bade him "go to the
devil." This scene killed any linger

of Ireland nnd sent to quell an upris
ing in that country. He failed to car
ry out his mission, and on his return
was deprived of hla titles and put un
der arrest. Soon he was set free, but
forbidden to come to court. He now
tasted all the bitterness of a fallen
favorite of fortune. The wealth, high
office und power lavished upon him
by Elizabeth were snatched away. Ho
had sacrificed his youth, his Indepen
dence, his ambitions all for nothing.
To a man like Essex such a fall
from favor was Intolerable. Misfor
tune turned his brain. Instead of ac
cepting his ill-luck gracefully the mis
guided man actually tried to stir up a
revolution. He was captured and con
demned to death. On February 21,

34. Put for his unfortunate affair with
the queen ho might have won perman

reproached herself bitterly for her
treatment of tho young carl. She sur
