CHAPTER XIX - THE EMPEROR MAKES A SUGGESTION

he had been standing facing the door in an expectant way, from the moment his master had put his key into the lock of the outer door.
" Excellency," he muttered, bowing low from the waist.
" All is well ? " the Chief grated out his question, entirely ignoring the other's humble greeting.
" All is well, Excellency," was the subservient answer.
" Good ! Then pass me the reports I asked for, and tell Madame I will be home for No! " He paused, and a new look came into his brooding eyes. " I will speak to her myself. Get me through."
Very few people ever saw this man of iron in his moments of relaxation. And not one of them would ever have thought him guilty of sentiment. Yet it was something more than sentiment he felt as he spoke to the woman at the end of the wire.
" So you will be home to-night," she was saying. " I can hardly believe it."
He spoke softly back in reply-but did not tell her he was leaving again at midnight on another of his strange absences. He was already wondering if he could manage to take her with him.
The Grand Duke Ferdinand had a curious mixture of qualities bound up in his character-some goodmost of them bad. The one outstanding thing that he kept apart from all the rest of his varied experiences was his love for his wife. He himself would never have admitted to such a tender emotion-though, strangely enough, he had never attempted to analyse his feelings towards Madame Freda. He had carried her off literally from the arms of another man because she captured the fiery imagination of his unrestrained youth. During all these intervening years he had kept her safe in his magnificent castle in Silesia, awal' from the curious eyes of the Court of his sister-in-law
