CHAPTER II Continued.
Huthur Idly, now, ho drow a pad to
ward him nnd, taking up n pencil,
mado tlio flguroa Bovcntccn and twen-
ty-aoven. Then lie mado tho figures
thtrty-two and forty-two. Ho black
ened them with ropeatcd tracings iui
Iho niUBod. This done, ho put seven
toon undor twenty-seven and thirty
two under forty-two. Ho mado tho
subtraction and studied tho two tciiH.
A bwIhk door opened softly nnd hie
executive clerk reappeared with a Boft
"Some papers for your Blgnnture,
sir," ho said as ho slipped them on tho
blotter In front of Wcaterllng. "And
'tho 132d no order about that, Blr?"
"Nono. It remnlns!" WcBtcrllng ro
ipllod. Tho clerk went out Impressed. HIb
chief taking to Bums of subtraction
end totally preoccupied) Tho 132d to
"remain! Ho, too, had a question-mark
In his secret mind.
WcBterllng proceeded with his math
ematics. Having heavily shaded tho
tons, ho essayed a Bum In division. He
found that ten wont Into seventy Just
"Ono-sovcnth tho allotted span of
llfot" ho mused. "Tako off Ilfteon
years for youth and Ilfteen after fifty
five nobody counts nftor that, though
I mean to and you havo ten Into
forty, which Is one-fourth. That Is w
good deal. Hut It's more to a woman
than to a man yes, a lot moro to a
woman than to a man!"
The clerk wus right In thinking
Wostorllng preoccupied; but It was
not with tho International crisis. Over
his coffee tho name of Miss Mnrta Gal
land, In tho list of arrivals nt a hotel,
had caught hlu oyo In tho morning pa
per. A noto to her hnd brought an
answer, Baying that her tlmo was lim
ited, but she would bo glad to havo
him call at live that afternoon.
Wcstorllng realized that tho ques
tion of marriage as n social require
ment might arlso when he should be
come officially chief of staff with the
retirement of His Excelloncy tho Hold
marshah For tho present ha enjoyed
his position ns n bachelor who was
tho most favored man In tho army too
much to think of marriage.
It was a little surprising that tho
bell' that tho girl of seventeen hnd
rung In his secret mind when ho was
on ono of tho llrst rounds of tho lad
der, now lost In tho mists of a lower
stratum of existence, should ever
tlnklo again. Yet ho had heard Its
noto In tho tono of nor prophecy with
oach step In his promotion; and while
tho othor peoplo whom ho had known
at La Tlr wcro tho vaguest shadows of
personalities, her plcturo was as defi
nite In detail as when sho said: "You
havo tho wlllt You havo the ambi
tion I" Sho had recognized in him the
power that ho felt; foreseen his ascent
to tho veey apex of tho pyramid. She
was still unmarried, which was
strange; for sho had not been bad
looking and sho waa of a flno old fam
ily. What waa eho like now? Com
monplaco and provincial, moat likely.
Many of tho peoplo ho had known In
his early days appeared so when he
met them again. Hut, at tho worst, ho
looked for nn interesting half-hour.
Tho throbbing activity of the streets
of the capital, as his car proceeded on
tho way to her hotel, formed an ener
getic accompaniment to bis gratifying
backward survey of how all IiIb plans
had worked out from tho very day of
tho prophecy. Had ho heard tho re
mark of a great manufacturer to tho
bankor at his sldo in a passing llmous
Ino, "Thoro gooB the gronteat captain
o industry of us all!" Wcstorllng
would only havo thought: "Cortalnly.
I am chief of staff. I am at tho head
of all your workmen at ono tlmo or
another!'1. Had ho heard tho bnnkor's
nnswor, "But pretty poor pay, pretty
mniill dividends!" ho would havo
thought, "Splendid dividends tho divi
dends of power!"
Ho hud n casto contempt for tho mou
of comniorce, with tholr mercenary
tk about credit and market prices;
aud also far tho tidontlsts, doctors, en
gineers, and men of other professions,
who spoko of things In books which
ho did not understand. Heading books
was ono of tho faults of Turcas, his as
sistant. No bookish tioldtor, ho know,
had over beon a great general. Ho re
sented tho growing power of these
loaders of tho civil world, taking dis
tinction away from tho military, oven
when, an a man of parts, ho had to
court their Influence. His was tho
profession that was and ovar should
ibo tho elect. A penniless subaltern
waa a gentleman, while ho could never
think of a man In business as ono.
All tho faces In tho street belonged
to a b t ran go, busy world outside his In
terest and thoughts. Thoy formed
what was known as the public, often
makto a clattor about things, which
thuy did not understand, when they
should obey tho ordcra of their nn
perlois. Of late, tholr clatter had boon
about tho extra taxes for tho recent In
crease of tho standing forces by an
other corps. Tho public was bovine
with a pnrrot's head. Yet It did not
admlro tho tolling ox, but the cnglo
and tho lion.
As his car camo to tho park his eyes
lighted at sight of ono of tho dividends
ono featuro of urban llfo that over
gave him a thrill. A battalion of the
128th, which ho had ordored that after
noon to tho very garrison at South La
Tlr that ho had onco commanded, wiib
marching through tho main avenuo.
Youths all, of twonty-ono or two, thoy
wore In a muddy-grayish uniform
which waa tho color of tho plain as
seen from tho veranda of the Qalland
house. Whcro these camo from wero
other boys growing up. to tako their
places. The mothers of tho nation
wero doing their duty. All tho land
was a breeding-ground for tho divi
dends of Hedworth Wcstorllng.
At tho far sldo of tho park ho saw
another kind of dividend anothor
group of marching men. Theso wore
not In uniform. They wero tho unem
ployed. Many wcro middle-aged, with
worn, tired faces, llesldo tho flag of
tho country at tho head of tho proces
sion wus that of universal radicalism.
And his car had to atop to let them
pass. For an Instant tho Indignation
of military autocracy roso strong with
in htm at sight of tho national colors
in such company. Dut ho noted how
naturally tho men kept step; the
solidarity of their movement. Tho
stamp of tholr army servlco In youth
could not bo easily removed. Ho real
ized tho advantage of heading an army
In which dofense was not dependent
on n mixture of regulars and volun
teers, but on universal conscription
that brought every able-bodied man

then had uny significance Yes, tho
old human Impulses would predomi
nate and tho only enemy would be on
tho other sldo of tho frontier. They
would bo pawns of his will tho will
that Marta Qalland hud said would
mako him chief of staff.
Wasn't war tho real euro for tho
general unroot? Wasn't tho nation
growing stale from tho long peace? Ho
was ready for war now that ho had be
come vlcochtof, when tho retirement
of I Its Excellency, unable to bear tho
weight of his years and decorations In
tho Held, would mako him tho supremo
commander. Ono ambition gained, ho
heard tho appeal of unother; to llvo
to see tho guns aud rifles that had
Ilred only blank cartridges In practice
pouring out shells and bullets, and all
tho battalions that had played at shnm
war in maneuvers engaged In real
war, under hl direction. Ho saw his
columns sweeping up tho slopes of tho
Hrown range. Victory waa certain. Ho
would bo tho llrst to lead a greut mod
el u army against a great modern
army; his placo as tho master of mod
oru tactics secure In tho mlnda of all
tho soldiers of the world. Tho public
would forget Its unrest In the thrill of
battle won nnd provinces conquered,
and Its clatter would bo that of ac
claim for a now idol of its old faith.
The Second Prophecy.
Marta, when sho had received tho
noto from Wostorllng, had boon in
doubt as to her answer. Her curiosity
to bco him afcaln was not of itself com
pelling. Tho actual making of the
prophecy waa rather dim to her mind
until ho recalled it. Sho had heard of
his rlso nnd sho hud heard, too, things
about him which a girl of twenty-seven
can better understand than a girl of
seventeen. HIb renso'n for wanting to
bco her ho had said was to "renew an
old acquaintance." Ho could havo lit
tlo Interest in her, and her interest in
him was that ho was head of tho Gray
army. HIb work had Intimate relation
to thnt which the Marta of twenty
sovon, u Marta with a mission, had set
for herself. ,
A page came to toll WcBterllng thut
Miss Qalland would bo down directly.
When she appeared alio crossed tho
room with a flowing, spontaneous vital
ity that appealed to him as something
"Ton years, Isn't It?" she exclaimed
ub alio seated herself on tho other sldo
of tho tea-table. "And, let mo see, you
took two lumps, If I remember ?"
"Nono now," he Bald.
"Do you Hnd it fattening?" she
Ho recognized the mischievous
sparkle of tho eyes, tho quizzical turn
of tho lips, which was her asset in
kooplng any question from being per
sonal. Noverthlcss, ho flushed slightly.
"A change of taste," ho averred.
"Since you'vo become such a groat
man?" she hazarded. "Is that too
strong?" This referred to tho tea.
"No, Just right!" ho noddod.
Ho was Btudylng her with tho polite,
veiled scrutiny of a man of tho world.
A matorlallst, ho would look a woman
over as ho would a soldlor when he
had been a major-general making an
Inspection. Sho wus slim, supplo; he
liked slim, supple women. Yes, she
was twenty-sevon, with tho vivacity of
Bovcntcen retained, though sho wero
on the edgo of being an old maid ac
cording to tho conventional notions.
Necks and shoulders that happened to
bo at his sldo at dinner, ho had found,
when they wero really beautiful, were
not averse to his glance of appreci
ative and discriminating admiration of
physical charm. Dut he saw her
shrug slightly and caught a spark from
her eyes that mado him vaguely con
scious of nn offense to her sensibili
ties, and ho was wholly conscious that
tho suggestion, bringing his faculties
up sharply, had tho pleasure of a novel

ology habitual whenever men or wom
en, to flatter him, had Intimated that
they realized that ho was tho actual
head of the army. Hie Excellency,
with the prestlgo of a career, must bo

of authority. To arouse his Jealousy

"Yea, yes!" breathed Marta Boftly,
arching her eyebrows a trifle as she
would when looking all around and
through a thing or when she found
any one beating about tho bush. Tho
little frown disappeared and aho
smiled understanding. "You know
I'm not a perfect goose!" alio added.
"Had you been made chief of staff rh
namo, too, all the old generals would
have been In the Bulks and tho young
generals Jealous," sho continued. "The
ono way that you. might havo tho
po'wer to exercise was by proxy."
This downright frankness wua an
other reflectlpn of the old days before
he was at tho apex of tho pyramid.
Now it was bo unusual In his experi
ence as to bo almost a shock. On tho
point of arguing, ho caught a mis
chievous, delightful "Isn't that so?" in
her eyes, nnd replied:
"Yes, I shouldn't wonder If It wero!"
Why shouldn't ho admit the truth to
tho ono who had rung tho bell of his
oecrct ambition long ago by recogniz
ing In htm tho ability to reach his
goal? Ho marvelled at her grasp of
"It wasn't bo vory hard to say,, was
It?" sho asked happily, In rcsponso to
his smile. Then, her gift of putting
heraolf in another's place, whilo sho
strovo to look at things with his pur
pose and vision, In full play, alio went
on In a different tono, ns much to hor
self us to him: "You havo labored to
mako yourself mnster of a mighty or
ganization. You did not caro for the
non-essentials'. You wanted tho reality
of shaping results."
"Yes, tho results, tho power!" ho
"Fifteen hundred regiments!" she
continued thoughtfully, looking at a
given point rather than at him. "Every
regiment a blado which you would
bring to an oven shnrpness! Evory
regiment a unit of a harmonious whole,
knowing how to screen ltaalf from Are
nnd give flro as long as bidden, In
answer to your will If war comes! That
Is what you live and plan for, Isn't It?"
"Yes, oxactlyl Yes, you havovlt!"
he said. Ills shouldsra stiffened as h
thrilled at seeing a picture of him
self, na he wanted to ace himself, done
In bold strokes. It assured him that
not only hnd his own mind grown bo
yond whut wcro to him tho narrow ne
ooctallonfl of his old La Tlr days, but
thnt hers had grown, too. "And you
what havo you been doing all these
years?" he asked.
"Living the life of u woman on a
country estate," sho replied. "Slnco
you mado u rule that no Gray officers
should cross the frontier wo have been
u little lonelier, having only the Drawn
officers to tea. Did you really And It
so bad for discipline In your own
cue?" sho concluded with playful
"One cannot consider Individual
cases In a general order," he explained.
"And, remember, the BrowflB mado tho
ruling llrst. You seo, every yenr
menus a tightening yes, a tightening,
ns arms and armies grow more compli
cated and tho maintaining of stuff

been all tho tlmo at La Tlr, truly?" he
asked, changing tho subject. Ho woe
convinced that she had acquired some
thing that could not ho gained on the
outskirts of a provincial town.
"No. I have traveled, t have been
quite around the world."
"You havo!" This explained much.
"How I envy you! That is a prlvllego
I shall not know until I um suterunnu
ated." While ho should remain chief
of staff he must be literally a prisoner
In his own country.
"Yes, I should euy it wus splendid!
Splendid yes, indeed!" Snappy llttlo
nods of the head being unequal to ex
pressing the Joy of tho memories that
her exclamation evoked, she clasped
her hands over her knees and swung
back and forth In the ecstasy of seven
toen. "Splendid! I should say so!"
Sho nestled tho curling tip of her
tonguo against her teeth, us if the
recollection must also be tasted.
"Splendid, enchanting, enlightening,
stupendous and wickedly expensive!
Another girl and 1 did It all on our
"O-oh!" he exclaimed.
"Oh, oh, oh!" she ropeuted after him.
"Oh, what, pleuBe?"
"Oh, nothing!" he said. It was quite
comprehensible to him how well
equipped she wae to tako care of her
self on such an adventure.
"Precisely, when you como to think
It over!" she concluded.
"What Interested you most? What
was tho big lesson of all your Journey
ing?" ho asked, ready to play the lis
tener. "Being born and bred on a frontier,
of an ancestry that was bom nnd bred
on a frontier, why, frontiers interested
mo most," eho said. "I collected Im
pressions of frontiers as some people
collect pictures. I found them all alike
stupid, Just stupid! Oh, so stupid!"
Her frown grow with tho repetition of
the word; her fingers closed In on her
palm In vexation. He recollected that
ho had Been her Uko this two or threo
times at La Tlr, when he had found
tho outbursts most entertaining. He
Imagined that tho small (1st pressed
against the table edgo could deliver a
stinging blow. "As stupid ns it Is for
neighbors to quarrel! It put me at
war with all frontiers."
"Apparently," he said.
She withdrew her fist from tho table,
dropped tho opened hand over the
other on her knee, her body relaxing,
her wrath pausing Into a kind of
shntnofacednesi and then Into a soft,
"I laugh at myself, at my own incon
sistency," sho said. "I was warllko
against war. At all events, if there Is
anything to make a teacher of peace

"Yes?" ho exclaimed. "Yes? Go
o'n!" And ho thought: "I'm really
having a very good time."
"You see, I came homo from my tour
with an idea an idea for a llfo occu
pation JUBt as engrossing as yours,"
sho went on, "and opposed to yours. I
saw there was no use of working with
the grown-up folks. They must bo left
to Tho Hague conferences and the
peace eof letles. But children are quite
nltko tho world over. You can plant

"Patriotism, for Instance," he ob
"No, tho follies of ' martial patriot
Ism! Tho wickedness of war, which
is tho product of martial patriotism!"
The follies of patriotism! This wus
tho red Hug of anarchy to him. He
started to speak, flushing angrily, but
held his tonguo und only emitted a
"whew!" In good-humored wonder.
"I seo you nre not very frightened
by my opposition," she rejoined in a
flash of amusement not wholly untein
nored by oxnsperntlon.
"Wo got tho appropriation for nn ad

plained contentedly, his repose com
"Thus lucreaslug tho odds against

"Naturally they don't, whon you talk
to them," ho Interrupted.
Sho was so lntont that eho passed
over tho compliment-with a gesture
like that cJ brushing away a cobweb.
Her oyoa wero Uko deop, clear wolls
of faith and purpose,
"I try to mako the children of other

"There Is something cIbc to come,

Intently and smiling. "So please bo

"I shall not beat my (1st on tho table

"If otherwise, 1 should lose," ho re
plied. "Exactly. You make It easy for me

cheerfully yet very seriously.
"Yes? Proceed. 1 brace myself

This Was the Red Flag of Anarchy to
to use all hor Influence with tho people

going to ask you not to let your coun

you are chief of staff."
"Mlno against yours?" he equivo
cated. "Why, you llvo almost within
gunshot of tho lino! Your people have
us much Gray as Brown blood In their
veins. Your country! My country!
Isn't that patrlotlam?"
"Patriotism, but not martial patriot
ism," sho corrected him. "My thought
Is to stop war for both countries air
wnr, regardless of sides. Promiso mo
that you will not permit it!"
"I not permit it!" Ho smiled with
tho kindly patronngo of a great man
who sees a charming woman flounder
ing in nn nttempt at logic. "It is for
tho premier to say. I merely make tho
machine ready. The government saye
the word that makes It move. I able
to stop war! Como, come!"
"But you can yes, you cau with a

"How?" he aaked, amazed. "How?"
he repeated blandly.
WaB alio teasing him? ho wonderod.
What new resources of confusion had
ten years und u tour around tho world
developed in her? Was It possible that
tho whole Idea of tho touchers of peaco
was an Invention to mako conversa

It off with a sincerity that suggested
other depths yet unsounded.
"Very easily," she answered. "You
can tell tho premier that you cannot
win. Tell him thut you will break your
army to pieces against tho Browns'
Ho gasped. Then an Inner voice
prompted him that tho cuo was
'Excellent fooling excellent!" he
said with n laugh. "Tell tho premier
that I should lose when I havo flvo
million men to their threo million!
What a harlequin chief of staff I
should bo! Excollont fooling! You al
most had me!"
Again ho laughed, though In the
fashion of ono who hnd hardly unbent
his spine, whilo ho was wishing for
the old days when ho might take tea
with hor one or two afternoons a week.
It would bo a flno tonic after his ieola-.
tlon at tho apex of tho pyramid sur

lovels. Then ho saw thut her eyes,
ahimmorlng with wonder, grew dull
nnd her lips parted In a rigid, palo lint
as it alio wero hurt.
