Several mouths ago some hot-headed, but
Impracticable Polish youths in Warsaw, be.
gen plotting against the Itusalan adminis

laid planaj as to bo overthrown in a night
nd replaced by Poles. All was satisfac
torily arranged on paper and Jan was
among the conspirators, though he had lit
tle more thun a passive hatred for the gov.
ernment. Serge noticed a change in his
friend when he. went up to Warsaw. All
the youth's spirits seemed to have left him.
"What la the matter?" he asked one night
at a gay supper, after he had vainly
striven to bring a amile Into the other's
face. "Nothing." was the reply. "Im
sleepy and will go home to- bed." Instead,
he left the supper table to attend a secret
meet'ng at which lots were past as to who

general. The fatal choice fell upon Jan
and final arrangements were aoon made.
Dressed In his dragoon's uniform he was
to go to the governor general's summer
residence on the outskirts of Warsaw and
demand to see him, saying he bore private
and pressing dispatches from tfie garrison
at Nllawa concerning the Germans, who
are continually looking hungrily across the
Russian frontier. Once In' the governor's
presence there was no fear of his plan
failing, because the conspirators had
chosen a day when men who were known
to harbor grudges against . the official
would be on guard at the house.
As these supposed secret dispatches were
timed to arrive In the evening, the young
soldier world be received In tho governor's
private room overlookiiaf the park. The
men on guard there were Poles, who had
bribed the police to change uniforms. The
victim would be gagged, carried through
tho park and hurried to a quiet road, where
a closed motor car watted. No violence
km to be used unless absolutely necesaar.
Ufllflala to Be Hostages.
Simultaneously with the capture of the
governor general all the other high Rustin
military and civil officials would b seized

houses. If the cxar granted the demand of
tho conaplratora for autonomy these men
would be released; if not, they weie to ba
killed and an attempt made to forcibly
secure the reins of government. It was
as mad. daring and hopeless a plot as ever
Although few peopl; wore acqua nled with
tho existence of the plul, it happened that
one of the most trusted of the plotters was
a Russian spy. The arrangements once
completed, this Individual lost no time In
putting all the details, together with a list
of U.e conspirators and the parts they were
to play, into the hands of tho police. This
happened on June 3. tho day before thai
fixed for the can y ins" cut of the plot.
Through a frieijd In tho police word
reached Jan that he and his friends had
been ' betrayed. Jan, after warning his
fellow conspirators, decided upon flight.
He had no choice cf routes, because he
happened to be at the country house
destined for the governor general's prison
a little place In the gcvoi uiient of Flock,
not (ar from tho German frontier when
the news of betrayal cane. Having no
passport, such aa is necessary to go abroad,
he borrowed one from a lady named
Madame Oadomaka, living near at haul.
Tie quickly dressed In woman's clothes, and
as he waa yourjR, slight and beardless, dis
guise was an easy matter. With false hair
and a thick veil, such as women wear when
tisvelang, he was soon ready to pass the
cursory scrutiny customary among frontier
officials. His friends put him Into a closed
carnage and he act out.
Spy Spoils All Plata.
It was a three hours' drive to tho frontier
station and the road lay on the outskirts
of Nils a, where his old regiment was still
stationed. I'nfortunately for tho young
Pole, tho same spy who had mads known
the plot to the authorities also disclosed
the whereabouts of tho several arch con
spirator. Co panic-stricken was the gov
ernor general that, upon learning the Iden
tity of the man who planned to get rid of
him, he telegiaphed to the colonel of Jail's
former regiment to scour the country for
this desperate character, and shoot him on
the spot. Serge Alexandrovitch. among
others, was ordered out with his troop. He
paled when he heard the fugitive's name,
and his colonel, noticing It, said: "You
know hhn better than any of us. If fat
puts him into voir hands, it Is your duty,
not only as a Russian, but the czai'a hpi
vant. i(j have hlni shot." Srge saluted in
silence and went out to watch the road
along which the fugitive must pass on hi
way to tho station.
It grew dusk. Many peasants' carts and
humble vehicles had passed and each time
the young Hii'slan heaved a siKli of relief
as he satisfied himself that none of them
contained the friend he loved better almost
than a brother. The dull, sultry day was
closing In when a shut can-las-, drawn by
four good horses, came in sight. It was
the first conveyance of the kind that had
passed. Serge Alexandrovitch ordered his
mer to stop It with a light heart. Doubt
less some lady was traveling in state, he
mused. The driver pulled up with reluc
tance, protesting that his mistress was In
a hurry to catch the evening train. Walk

asked courteously for the lady's passport.
They faced one another In the dusk Jan

silence through the open window. Rut. un
happily, he nad taken off his glove, which
was tight. The right hand bore a large
scar on the back the result of a cut given
him by Serge Alexandrovitch while they
were playing with foils one afternoon In
tho barrack yard. Serge saw and remem
bered It; his own hand trembled as he took

hat anil veil with a cry of despair.
"It haa to be." he exclaimed. "Oh!

represented life. Then he stared at the
