THE LETTERS AGAIN

The Baron was about to remonstrate with Carl-he could not account for the change of attitude ; but, after all, the boy was ill !
" I will retire now," said the Prince, lifting his coat from the chair where it had been lying since the Baron came in and found him preparing for bed. As he picked it up, a letter fell from the pocket ; but he did not see it. The Baron did not notice it either till the bedroom door had closed behind his charge. He was preparing to light a cigar when he suddenly caught sight of it. He was not prepared for the shock he got when he stooped down and picked it up, and saw it was one of the stolen letters. He recognised this particular one because Carl had shown it to him when it arrived; and he had made certain notes on the back of the envelope. It was very astonishing ; and wrinkling his brow in perplexity, the Baron went over and knocked gently on Carl's door. There was no answer at first. The Prince was sulking-another new development.
" You left a letter lying on the chair, Highness," he said at last.
The door suddenly burst open and the Prince appeared, his face ablaze with fury. " Spy," he hissed through his teeth. " Give it to me! "
" But I found it here by the chair," answered the other plaintively. " I did not know that Your Highness had found the letters."
" Did those two English pigs tell you that too? " cried Carl. "They are nothing but spies as well."
" No! They did not," answered the Baron with a return of spirit. "And what is more I would remind Your Highness that I have always been a very faithful servant ; but I will not stand insult. I would not put up with it from your uncle, my master-and I certainly will not have it from you."

THE LETTERS AGAIN

The young man saw that he had made a mistake, and his own anger died down at once. But he did not apologise.
" Oh, very well," he said more quietly. "Perhaps you are right. Good-night." He was still ungracious as he shut the door and turned the key.
Baron Erfurt, with all his experience, had never been treated in such a manner as this before ! He would never have believed that Carl could have treated him so unkindly or in such an ungracious manner. They had always had great affection for each other. But then-the Prince had been quite different in quite a number of ways since his return from the ball in London.
