the town council, than tho thousands
of dollars tho town has expended In
conventional ways. Tho league began
by offering prizes for clean and orderly
back yards and alleyB, and went on to
glvo prizes for the best vine-covered
fence, tho finest vegetable plot and tho
most beautiful flowering plant. Then
it organized, tho children to pick up
waste paper from the streets, keep tho
school yards neat, and "tidy up" tho

"that you havo had Bomo opportunity
to study Julian's character."

"And," added Ezabcl, "If you could

our heroine, "Julian Is at homo In this

From his earliest childhood ho know
no other homo but this." '
"And ho was on his way hither
when ho overtook mo in tho hands of
tho Arabs "
"And will my presenco causo him to

"I think not, lady. But you ' will
glvo yourself no uncaslnes3 on that ac
count. If Julian feels that ho hnd bet

his own sake. And, remember tho
truly noblo soul finds Joy in tho gen
erous sacrifices which It may bo called
upon to make. I hear Bon Hadad's
voice. Ho Is cnlllng mo."
Bho aroso and left the chnmbcr; and
when sho returned sno was followed by
Bon Hadad. Now that Ulln saw tho
hermit by tho light of tho day sho was
awe-struck by his vcnorablo appear
nncn. All that could bo noblo and
honorable nnd lovable In old ago
Rcemod combined In him; and as ho
bent his gazo upon hor and extended
his hand in wolcomo, sho folt hor heart
go, to him with all Its trust and confi
dence. "My child,"' ho Bald in tones of ten
dcrest solicitude, "Ezabel has told mo
your story and I havo como to bid
you an affectionate welcomo to my
cave. Rest hero and feel that you aro
nt homo. Your mother paid mo for
this long ago. Como follow mo to
whero tho air is fresher, and where
tho sunbeams can greet you."
Tho maiden thanked Ben Hadad as
well as sho was ablo and then roso to
follow him. Ho led her to tho main
cave, whero sho found Hobaddan and
"This is my home," said tho old
man, as ho led the maiden to a Beat;
"and hero have I lived moro years than

All theso trees and shrubs I have
trained up from tho tender sprout, and
these vines I have taught to clotho
the gray old recks. And I have been
most fortunato in my life. I have been
ablo to protect many who needed pro
tection and my days havo been length
ened out to protect more."
Ulln was touched by tho deep pathos
of tho hermit's words, and for a wholo
hour Bho sat nnd listened to his conver
sation. At the end of that tlmo ho led
her back to tho cavo where Ortok, tho
black slave, had prepared dinner. Sho
did not feel hungry, but she sat down
with Ben Hadad and Hobadden and
Ezabel sho and Albla and partook
Thus passed three day's; and Ulln
had become so used to the place that
It already Beemed like homo. She had
learned to love the hermit; and sho
had learned to love Ezabel; and sho
had learned to respect and esteem the
stout-hearted Hobaddan nnd to con

And he explained to hor that he had
communicated with thorn that they
know of their chieftain's safety and
had gono away Into the mountains of
Lebanon, where comfortable abiding
places for them woro plenty.
When Ulln retired to her own apart
ment she sat by herself, with her head
bowed upon her hands, taking no no
tice of hor servlng-mald. At an early
hour sho retired; but it was a long
tlmo oro sho slept; and when she did
sleep sho was troubled with strange
dreams. Sho dreamed of tho unfortu
nate Helena, and awoko with a cry
of pain. And then sho dreamed a more
pleasant dream a dream of something
that had haunted her waking thoughts
a dream of the Scourge and Damas
cus. CHAPTER XVIII.
Something Moro Than a Dream.
On the following morning, when
Ulln entered the main cave, Julian
was thcro to greet her. She extended
her hand to him and smiled as she
spoko. The youthful chieftain was
somewhat pale, but his large, lustrous
eyes burned with a deeped intensity
and the white brow offered a strange
contract to the waving mases of golden
hair. Tho maiden's smile faded away
when she met tho earnest gaze that
was Axed upon her, and her hand
trebled before she withdrew it. He
spoke to ber a few words of cheer, ex
pressed his gratltudo that she had
found a, place of safety; and hoped
that the future might have no more
clouds for her.
"O, my mistress," cried Albla, when
she and Ulln wero alone, "how noblo
a man he la!"
"Who?" asked the princess, stalling
out from a deep revtrla.
A Story of
Bobert Bonner's Sons.
Julian, I mean." roturned tho maid,
quickly and with enthusiasm. "Docs
ho not look handsomer than over?"
Ulln bowed her head and mado no
"Is ho not beautiful to gaze upon?"
pursued Albla, without seeming to no
tice hor lady's abstracted mood
nuHii, Albla, say no moro now. I
am busy with my own thoughts."
"Pardon, sweet mistress. 1 meant
no wrong. I thought wo owed him
so much and he has Buffered in our
behalf that you might"
"Albln, say no more. I know you
meant well. You mistako mo If you
think I um not grateful. Thero-say
no moro. I lovo you, and would not
hurt your feelings. Go out into tho
grovo and walk awhile."
Ulln bowed her hend again ns sho
spoke, with her hand upon her brow
upon her brow for a moment and
thon pressed upon her bosom. And
thus Albla left hor.
When tho freed girl reached tho
grovo in front of tho cavo sho found
Julian nnd Osmlr In close conversa
tion and before thoy noticed hor Bho
hnd heard enough to cxclto her cu
riosity; and with a freedom that was
natural to her, sho asked them what
"Osmlr thinks," said Julian, with n
smile, "that ono of tho Arnb robbers
has- followed us and tracked us to
this place; but I laugh at him."
"I may bo mistaken," rejoined tho
uuicr, -out still I think I am right.
I havo seen tho follow twin n i.
tho river at tho cntrnnce of tho wood,
and onco further away. It was ono of
tho rascals wno escaped us."
"And if it is tho Arab, what can he
want?" asked Albla.
"If it bo ono of those follows," ro
turned Julian, "ho may wish to join
"Oh," added Osmlr, "ho may hope to
"Very likely," assented the chieftain.
"However," ho concluded, after a brief
pause, "wo may as well keep a sharp
"Sollm and I nro on tho watch," said
Osmlr; "and if wo catch tho rascal,
we'll securo him."
Albla fancied that Julian had
thoughts which ho wbb not willing to
express in her presence, but Bho did
not mean to fret herself; and beforo
sho rejoined hor mlstrtss sho had al
most forgotten tho circumstances.
At noon, and again In tho evening,
did Ulln meet Julian; but they did
not converse freely together. She
could not meet tho gazo of those lus
trouB eyes without treinbung, and sho
sought to avoid that which so much
moved hor. If he had approached her
and spoken freely with her on some
subject of general Interest she would
havo Joined him readily; but bo did
not do so.
Morning camo ngaln, and again tha
'maiden mot tho man who had saved
hor from tho Arabs. This tlmo he
greeted her in fow words, and soon
turned away to Bpeak with Hobaddan.
Ho did not seem well. Ho looked
paler than on tho day before, and
thoro was an expression of pain about
tho mouth and eyes. Ulln was uneasy.
Perhaps his wound wsb giving him
now trouble. As soon as the morn
ing's meal had been eaten, she Bought
Ezabel and asked her If Julian was
suffering from his wound.
"No," replied the old woman. "I
do not think it Is his wound. I have
noticed his appearanco and have asked
him what it meant; but he puts mo
off with a smllo and a blessing and
tries to assure me that all Is well. I
do not llko to see him Buffer. He is
like a child to me and I love him ten
derly. Ah, tho world little knows
what a noble, generous soul dwells
within that manly form."
"If I thought he was suffering from
my account," said Ulln, "I should be
"How on your account?" said Eza
"I mean In consequence of the wound
he received while fighting for my de
liverance." "I hardly think It Is that. Some
thing besido the wound troubles him.
It may be that tho short captivity in
Damascus worries him. Ho may havo
heard something there that gives him
At noon Julian did not appear when
the rest ate their dlnnor. Ho was out
by tho river. Late in tbo attornoon
Ulln met Ezabel again and tho latter
seemed sad and dejected.
"Julian 1b going to leave us," ex
claimed the woman, In answer to an
Inquiry from Ulln.
"Leavo us!" repeated our heroine,
with a start.
"Yes; so ho told me only an hour
"When will ho go?"
"Early In tho morning."
"But he will shortly return?"
"I fear not. I asked him that and
he only shook his head."
"Does he give any reason for his
"None that you need to know, my
child. In fact, he gives me no reason
directly. I am left to draw my conclu
sions from accidental remarks."
Whon Ulln retired to her chamber
she was In a frame ol mind not eas
ily analyzed. She spoke to Albla con
cerning the chieftain's unexpected de
parture and the girl expressed the
opinion that he felt himself to be In
"What do you mean by that?" asked
"Wcll,H replied Albla, "I think JuN
Ian feels that there aro enough dwell

I may bo mistaken; but his manner, r
for a day or two past, has seemed to
indicate that ho was not perfectly at.,,
Tho princess asked no moro ques

As tho sun was sinking from its
dally course, Ulln wandered out Into
the grovo alono, and as sho approached
the spot whero sho sometimes Bat with
tho hermit, Bho saw Julian, seated
upon a btnch beneath an orange tree.
At first sho thought of turning back,
and retracing her stops; but an Im
pulso which was no result of her will, y;
but rather an instlnctlvo emotion, as
though somo secret force, led her on;
and almost beforo sho wai awaro of it
Bho camo bo near that tho youth
hoard her stop and looked up. Ho
started when ho snw her and a flash
of Joy, llko a quick passago of sun
light, was upon his face. In a moment,
howover, tho look was gono, nnd a
shado of sadness succeeded. Tbo
mnldon could not now havo withdrawn
even had sho been so disposed in the
first place. Following the strong im
pulse, sho aavanccd to tho shadow
of the orange treo and placed her hand
upon Julian's Bhouldor; and it thrilled -w
tho youth liko an olcctrlc shock.
"Kind sir," sho said, scarcely able
to speak nbovo a whisper when she
commenced, "Ezabel tells me you aro
"Yes, lady," Julian replied, rising
as ho spoke; "I havo so determined."
"And you go soon?"
"In tho morning."
"This Is sudden, sir."
"No, lady; no moro so than my
movements urc apt to be."
Ulln and Julian.
Ulln hesitated nnd trembled, nnd
finally snt down UDon tho beneh from
which the chieftain had arisen. In a
few moments sho had recovered her
self so that sho could speak without
"Good sir, I havo ono question to ask
you." She went on hurriedly, as
though tho old Impulse still led her;
"You had not planned to leave tho
cavo so soon?"
"I had planned nothing about it,
"But if I had not been here, with
my servant, you would havo remained
"Lady, do not ask mo such ques
tions." "I must ask them, sir, for I want
to know. If I thought that my pres
enco hero had caused you to leave
your old home, I should bo most un
happy. Whon I camo hero I did not
know how near and dear this placo
was to you. If ono of us must go,
let me find eomo other resting place."
Julian started and trembled like nn
aspen. A moment it was so, and then
ho turned upon the maiden a look so
earnest and so deep and so full of
tumultuous feeling, that she shook be
"Lady," ho said, speaking 'almost In
a whisper, "you shall know tho se
cret which I had purposed never to
reveal to mortal being. Tho words
are forced from me. Let me speak
them now; nnd then let them bo for
gotten. When I heard that the king
of Damascus had shut up a fair maid
en within the Palaco of Lycanlua, and
that ho meant to mako that maiden
hla wlfo, I felt my heart grow sick
within mo and I resolved, If the fair
ono was held against her will, that I
would set her free. I led my brave
men to the palace and overcamo the
guard which tho king had sot Heaven
was opened, but in the blessed realm
I was offered no abiding place. I saw
tho loved spirit of light within tho
cave which had been tho homo of my
childhood; but my love I dared not
speak. How could I, tho enemy of
Damascus, and tho branded robber,
toll my lovo to the daughter of the
king's prime minister. Lady, I dare
not trouble you more."
