Tho subjective enjoyment of tho
declaration kept him from any keen
notlco of tho effect of hlH words.
Lanny wns right. It hnd boon a wnr
of deliberate conquest; n war to

Marta would bo able to llvo over again
tho feelings of this moment. It wns as
If nho wcro frozen, all except bruin
and uerves, which wore on fire, wlillo
tho rigidity of Ico kept hor from
springing from her chnlr In contempt
and horror, nut & purposo enmo on tho
wings of diabolical temptation which
would pit tho art of woman against
tho power of a man who set millions
against millions In slaughtor to gratify
personal ambition. Sho was thankful
that sho was looking down ns sho
poke, for she could not bring herself
to another compliment. Her throat
waa too chilled for that yot.
"The ono way to end the feud be
tween tho two nations was a war that
would mean permanent pence," ho ex
plained, seeing how quiet oho was and
realizing, with a recollection of her
children's oath, that ho had gono a lit
tle too far. He wanted to retain her
admiration. It had becomo as precious
to him us a now dollcacy to Lucullus.
"Yes, I understand," sho managed
to murmur; then sho was ablo to look
tip. "It's all so immenso!" sho added.
"Your Ideas about war seem to bo a
great deal changed," ho btntod
"As I expressed them tit tho hotel,
you mean!" sho exclaimed. "That
corns ages ngo ages!" Tho perplex
ity and Indecision that, in a Bpaco of
alleuco, brooded in tho depths of her
eyes camo to tho Burfnco in wavering
lights. "Yes, ngcsl ages!" Tho wnvor

thrill that always presaged victory for

I "You soo, I have been very much
tirred up," sho said half apologetical
ly. "Thero aro eomo questions I want
to ask qulto practical, selfish ques
tions. You might call them questions
lot property and mercy. Tho longer
the war lasts the greater will bo tho
toss of life nnd tho misery?"
"Yet, for both sides; and tho heavier
tho expenso and tho taxes."
"If you win, then wo shall bo under
jrour flag and pay taxes to you?"
"The Browns do' not increase la
(population; tho Grays do rapidly. Thoy
(aro a great, powerful, civilized race.
Fhey stand for civilization!"
"Yes, facts and tho world's opinion
fcgroo," bo replied. Puzzled he might
woll bo by this peculiar catechism. Ho
could only contlnuo to roply until ho
hould seo whero sho was leading.
"And your victory will mean a now
(frontier, a new order of international
(relations and a long pcaco, you think?
tPcaco a long pcaco I"
i Was thoro evor a eoldlor who did
not flgUt for peaco? Was thero evor a
call for moro army-corps or guns that
was not mado In tho name of peaco?
Ho had his ready argument, spoken
with tho forclblo conviction of on ex

'only kind of peace thai; thero can bo,"

I Though tho premlor, could ho havo
jheard this, might hava smiled, oven
grinned, ho would havo understood
Westcrllng's unconsciousness of Incon
sistency. Tho chief of staff bad set
himself a task in victory which had
no military tonnc'ctlon. Without know
ing why, ho wanted to win uBcendancy
over her mind.
"Tho man of action!" exclaimed
Marta, her eyes opening very wldo, as
they would to let In tho light when
sho heard something now that plcaeod
her or gavo food for thought. "The

"Kxuctly!" said Wcsterllng, sen
sible of another of hor gifts. Sho
could get the essenco of a thing in a
few words. "When wo have won and
set unothor frontier, tho powor of our
nation will bo such In tho world that
tho Ilrowns can never afford to attack
us," ho went on. "Indeed, no two of
tho big nations of Europo can afford
to muko war without our consent. Wo
shall bo tho arbiters of International
dissensions. Wo shall commnnd peaco
yes, tho pcaco of forco, of fact! If
It could bo won In nny other way I
should not bo hero on this veranda In
command of an nrmy of Invasion.
That was my Idea for that I planned."
Ho wns making up for having over
shot himself In his confession that ho
had brought on tho war as a final
step for his ambition.
"You mean that you can gain poaco
by propaganda and education only
when human nnturo has so changed
thnt wo enn havo law and order and
housoB aro Bafo from burglary nnd
pedestriano from pickpockets without
policemen? Is that it?" sho asked.
"Yes, yost You have it! You havo
found tho wheat in tho chaff."
"Perhaps bceauso 1 havo been seo

human nature of both tho Ilrowns nnd
tho drays at war. I havo seen tho
Ilrowns throwing hand-grenades nnd

dining-room directly thoy wcro out of

Hfidly, aB ono who hates to accept dis
illusionment but must In tho faco of
Wcstorling mado no reply oxcopt to
nod, for a movement on her part pre
occupied him. Sho leaned forward,
as sho had when she had told him he
would become chief of staff, her hands
clasped over her knee, hor eyes burn
ing with a question. It was the atti
tude of tho prophecy. Dut with the
prophecy sho had been a little mys
tical; tho fire in her eyes had precipi
tated an Idea. Now It forged another

she asked. "You think that you will
win?" buo ropentod with tho Blow em
phasis which demands a careful an
swer. Tho dcllboratcnoes of IiIb reply was
In keeping with her mood. He was do-
tached; ho was n referee.
"Yes, I know that wo shall. Num
bers niako It so, though thero bo no
cholco of skill between tho two Bides."
His tono had tho confidence of tho
flow of a mighty rlvor In Us destina
tion on Us way to tho sea. Thero was
nothing In It of prayer, of hopo, of des
peration, ns thero had beon In Lan
stron's: "We shall win!" spoken to her
in tho nrbor at their Inst Interview.
Sho drew forward slightly in her chair.
Her eyes seemed much larger nnd
nearer to him. Thoy wero sweeping
him up and down ns If sho woro seeing
tho s)lm flguro of Lnnstron In con
trast to Westcrllng's sturdlness; as If
Bho woro measuring tho might of tho
flvo millions behind him and tho throo
millions behind LaiiBtfon. Sho let go
a hnlf-whlsperod "Yes!" which seemed
to reflect tho conclusion gained from
tho power of his presenco.
"Then my mother's and my own In
terests aro with you tho lntoresta of
penco nro with you!" sho declared.
Sho did not appear to seo tho sud
den, uncontrolled glenm of victory In
his oyes. Ily this tlmo It had becomo
a habit for Wcstorling to wait sllontly
for her to coma out of her abstrac
tions. To disturb ono might make it
"Then If I want to help tho causo of
peaco I Bhould help tho Grays!"
Tho exclamation was moro to her
self than to him. He wub sllont. This

him and his flvo million bayonets and
four thousand guns! Quixote and the
windmills but U was amazing; It waa
flno! Tho golden glow of tho sunset
was running in his veins In a paean
of personal triumph. Tho profllo
turned uvor so llttlo. Now It wne
looking at tho point whoro Dollarmo
had lain dying. Wcsterllng uoted tho
smllo playing on tho lips. It had tho
quality of a smllo over a task com

and at last broko Its bondB.
"For I can holp 1 cau help!" sho
cried out, turning to him In wild In
decision which Boomed' to plead for
guldanco. "Ifn bo torrlblo yet if it
would hasten peace I I know much
of tho Drowns' plan of defenso! I

Hut ho controlled himself. "Yes, yos!"
He wns thoughtful and guarded.
"Do you think It le right to toll?"
Marta guspod half Inarticulately.
"Itlght? Yes, to hasten tho Inevit
able to snvo lives!" declared Wcster
llng with dollbernto assurance
"I 1 want to bco an end of tho kill
ing! I" Sho sprang to her feet as
If about tot break nway tumultously,
but patlsed', swaying unsteadily, nnd
pnescd hor hand across her eyes.
"Wo Intend n general attack on tho
first lino of defenBo tonight!" ho ex
claimed, his supremo thought leaping
"And you would want tho informa
tion about tho first lino tonight if If
It Is to bo of service?"
Marta brought her hands together
In a tight clasp. Her gaze fluttered
for a mlnuto over the toa-tablo. When
Bho looked up her oyes wore calm.
"It Ib a big thing, Isn't It?" she uald.
"A thing not to be dono In nn Impulse.
I try never to do big thlngB In an Im
pulse. When I see that I am in dnn
gor of It I always pay: 'Go by your
self and think for half an hour I' So I
must now. In a little while I will let
you know my decision."
Without further formality sho start
ed ncross tho lawn to the terrace
steps. Wcsterllng watched her sharp
ly, passing along tho path of tho sec
ond terrace, pacing slowly, head bent,
until sho was out of sight. Thon ho
stood for a tlmo getting a grip on his
own emotions before he went Into tho
In Feller's Place.
What nra I? What have I dono?
What am I about to do? shot bb forked
shadows over tho hot lava-flow of Mar
ta'B Impulse. Tho vitality that Wester
ling had felt by suggestion from a still
profllo rejoiced In a quickening of pace
directly eho was out of sight of the
voranda. All tho thinking sho had

tures; somo saying, Bomo cry, some,

Tho elttlng-room of tho tower was
empty to other eyes but not to hers.
Tho lantern was In tho corner at hand.
After her hastening steps had carried
hor along tho tunnel to the telephone,
sho set down tho lantern and pressed
tho spring that opened tho panel door.
Another moment and sho would be em
barked on her great adventure In the
finality of action. That llttlo ear-piece
became a specter of conscience. Sho
drew back convulsively and her hands
flew to her face; she was a rocking

ing the true nature of tho change that
war had wrought in her. She who had

sho had been playing I Every word,
ovcry shado of expression, overy toll
ing pauao of abstraction after Wcster
llng confessed thnt ho had mado war
for his own ends had been subtly
prompted by a purposo whoso actuality
Hor hypocrisy, she renllzod, was as
black as tho wall ol darkness beyond
tho lantern's gleam. Thon thla demor
alization passed, as a nightmare
passoe, with Westcrllng's boast again
in her ears.
When war's principles, enacted by
men, woro based on sinister trickery
called strategy and tactics, should not
women, uslug such weapons as thoy
had, also fight for tholr homes? Mar
ta's hands swept down from her eyes;
sho was on flro with resolution.
Forty miles away a boll In Lan
stron's bedroom and at hla desk rang
simultaneously. At tho tlmo ho and
Partow woro seated facing each other
across n map on tho tablo of tho room
whero they worked together. No por
suasion of tho youug vice-chief, no
edict of tho doctors, could make tho
old chief take oxorclso or shorten his
"I kuow. I know myBolXl" ho Bald.
"I know my duty. And you aro learn
ing, mV boy, learning!"
Every day tho flabby cheeks grew
pastier and tho pouches under the eye
brows heavier. Hut thero wns no
dimming of tho eagle flnohcs of tho
oyes, no weakening of tho will, Last
night Lnnstron had turned as whlto
as chalk when Partow stuggered on
rising from tho tablo, the veins on his
temples knotted bluo whip-cords. Yot
after a fow hours' sleep ho reappeared
with firm Btep, fresh for tho fray.
Tho paraphernalia around these two
was tho same as that nround Westor
ling. Only the ntmosphero of tho staff
was different. Each man wn perform
ing tho part sot for him. No man know
much of any other man's pnrt. Partow
alono know all, and Lnnstron was try
ing to grnsp nil and praying thnt Par
tow's old body should still feed his
mind with energy. Lanstron was thin
ner and pnlcr, a new and glittering in
tensity in his eyes.
When word of Feller's defection
enme, Lanstron realized for tho first
tlmo by Partow's manner that tho old
chief of staff, with all hlfl deprecation
of tho telephone schemo as chimerical,
had grounded a hope on It.
"Thero was tho chance that wo
might know so vital to the defenso
what they wero going to do before nnd
not nftor tho attack," he said.
Yet tho story of how Feller yielded
to tho temptation of the automatic had
mado tho nostrils of tho old war-horse
quiver with u dramatic breath, and In
stead of tho command of a battery of
guns, which Lanstron had promised,
tho chief mado It n battalion. He had
drawn down hla browB when ho hoard
that Mnrta had asked that tho wire
be left intact; ho had shot u ehrowd,
questioning glance at Lanstron and
then beat a tattoo on tho tablo nnd
half grinned as ho grumbled under his

A week had passed slnco tho Grays
had taken tho Galland house, and still
no word from Marta. The ring of the
bell brought Lanstron to his feet with
a startled, boyish bound.
"Very springy, that tendon of
Achilles!" muttered Partow. "And,
my boy, tnko caro, take caro!" ho
called suddenly In his sonorous volco,
as vast and billowy as his body.
It was Mnrtn's volco and yet not
Marta's, this voice that beat In nerv
ous waves over the wire.
"Lanny Yes, I, Lanny! You wero
right. Westerllng planned to mako war
deliberately to satisfy his ambition.
Ho told mo so. Tho first general at
tack on the first lino of defenBo 1b to
night. Westerllng says so!" Sho bad
to pause for breath. "And, Lanny, I
want to know some position of tho
Drowns which Is weak not actually
weak, maybe, but some position where
tho Grays expect torrlblo resistance
and will not find it where you will let
"In the name of Marta! Marta,
"I am-going to fight for the Drowns
for my homo!"
In the sheer satisfaction of explain
ing herself to herself, of voicing her
sentiments, she sent the pictures which
had wrought the change moving across
tho screen before Lanstron's amazed
vision. There was no room for Inter
ruption on his part, no question or
need of ono. The wlro seemed to
quiver with tho militant tension of her
spirit. It was Marta uflame who was
talking at tho other end; not aflame
for him, but with a purposo that re
vealed all the latent strength of her
personality and daring.
"I shall have to ask Partow. It's a
pretty big thing."
"Yes only that Is not all my plan,
my llttlo plan. After they havo taken
tho first lino of defense and thoy
will got It, won't they?"
"Yes, we shall yield In tho end, yield
rather than Buffer too great Iobscs
thoro that will weaken tho defense on
tho main lino."
"Then I want to know whero It Is
that you want Westerllng to attack on
tho main lino, so that wo can got him
to attack thero. That that will help,
"Of course, all tho wlillo I shall bo

worth while with you to direct me;
don't you think so, Lanny 7 I'll hold
tho wire, Lanny. Ask Partow!" she
concluded. Of the two sho was tho
"Well?" said Partow, looking up at
tho sound of Lanstron's stop. Then he
halt raised himself from his chair at
sight of a Lanstron with oyes In a
dazo of brilliancy; a Lanstron with
his maimed hand twitching In an out
stretched gesture; a Lanstron In tho
dilemma of being at tho samo tlmo
lover and chief of Intelligence. Should
he let her mako the sacriflco of every
thing that he held to bo sacred to a
woman's delicacy? Should ho not re
turn to tho telephono 'and tell her that
ho would not permit hor to play such
a part? Partow's voice cut In on his
demoralization with tho sharpness of a
"Well, what, man, what?" ho de
manded. Ho feared that the girl might
bo dead. Anything that could upset
Lanstron In this fashion struck a
chord of sympathy and apprehension.
Lanbtron advanced to tho tablo,
pressed hie hands on tho odgo, and,
now master of hlmsolf, began an ac
count of Marta's offor. Partow's form
less arms lay Inert on tho tablo, his
Boft, pudgy fingers outsproad on tho
map and his bulk settled deep in tho
chair, wlillo IiIb caglo eyes wero Boo
ing through Lanstron, through a moun
tain rnngo, Into the eyes of, a woman
onemy'a ncadqunrters. ThB plan mean-;
giving, giving in the hopo of receiving
much In return. Would he got tho re
turn? "A woman wns the Ideal ono for tho
task wo IntiUBted to Feller," ho mused,
"a gentlewoman, big enough, udrolt
enough, wlthher soul In tho work b
no paid woman's could be! Tiioro
seemed no such one in the world!"
"Dut to let her do It!" gasped Lan
stron, "It Is her suggestion, not yours? Sho
offerH herself? Sho wants no per
suasion?" Partow asked sharply.
"Entirely her suggestion," Bald Lan
Btron. "Sho offers herself for lior
country for tho cause for which our
soldiers will give their lives by tho
thousnuds. It Is n tlmo of sacrifice."
Partow raised IiIb arms. They were
not formless as ho brought them down
with sledgu-hnmmcr force to tho tablo.

"Wo must! She shall holp!" Par

across the tablo and seizod Lanstron's

around toward tho door of his bed
