THE RED CHANCELLOR. I A ROMANCE, I By, SIR WILLIAM MAGNAY, Bart., I Author of The Heiress of the Season," The Man-Trap," I The Pride of Life," &c. -0 I CHAPTER I. Duke Johann's Chapel. "Von Orsova is playing a dangerous game." "He takes the risk." "Of what?" It was I who asked tbo ques- tion, curious to hear what penalty attached to the handsome Rittmeister's temerity. The three men gave glances at each other, as though inquiring which of them could answer. My friend Von Lindheim broke the pause, replying with a shrug- "He is a captain of cavalry, Master of the Horse; a gentleman, noble, no doubt, by birth, but a simple, if magnificent, Hitt- meister. The lady"—he glanced round toward the dark shadows of the trees, gave another I flhru:; of caution and lowered his voice—"is what we all know. To couple their names is high treason; and, a fortiori, it is treason in a higher degree for the Bursche to aspire." "We have not forgotten," another said, "the case of poor Steiner." I saw they were not inclined to run risks by discussing State secreta under the very walls of the palace, so postponed the grati- fication of my curiosity until I should get Von Lindheim alone in my rooms or his house. We four had slipped out into the gardens, to snatch ten minutes for a cigarette from the rather dreary formality of a State Ball at the Palace of Buyda. My three companions were guests in their official capacities, being r attached to the bureau of the world-known Chancellor Rallenstein; I, Jasper Tyrrell, a mere traveller, through the friendly offices of Von Lindheim, to whom I had an introduc- tion. I had gone abroad in a restless, roving frame of mind, ready for any adventure and heartily sick of the monotony of inaction, forced inaction, very slightly relieved by the problematical fun of entertaining big shooting I parties at my place in Norfolk. That seemed all I had to look forward to in the year, and the more I thought of my autumn programme the more restless and discontented had I grown. Even the temporary diversion of I marriage, strennously commended to me by certain not altogether disinterested friends, had failed to take hold on my fancy; amuse- ments of that sort can be arranged at any I time and at comparatively short notice, and perhaps it is not unreasonable in the man who is led to sacrifice himself to make a society holiday to wish to postpone the inevitable on the chance of accepting his fate with a better grace later on. 80 one night at dinner, dur- ing which several friends and relations were good enough to map out a very pretty six months' programme for me-and themselves, my resolution was taken, and before I had got into bed that night my kit for an extended solitary ramble was packed. Next day I made a bolt of it, leaving to an astute aunt full authority, by letter, to carry on Sharnstone in my absence, and after a month's desultory progress found myself at Buyda. A generation ago there were, as every student of European diplomacy knows, some very curious political intrigues (we knew more about them now) in several of the Courts of Europe. More or lees secret acts of aggressive statesmanship were perpetrated which, had they not been diplomatically covered up or explained away, would have seemed to set the forces of civilisation to right-about-face. But the press, like speech, often serves, in some countries at any rate, to withhold rather than to give out information, while special corres- I pondente are mostly acclimatised and often merely human. oall there was Bomewhere, in east central Europe for choice, a chance of seeing some- thing of life a little more adventurous than the cricket field or the covert at home had to offer, and with young blood in one's veins, a perfect digestion, a muscular system second to none at Angelo's, the idea of a possible Ven.,ures is not displeasing, The dull smoothness and security of a. well- j policed commuity is monotonous to a. man of spirit. Such were the vague anticipations with which I -set forth, but my imagination cer- tainly never suggested such a series of adven- tures as that which I was to pass through before I got back. I had purposely left my destination un- certain, even to my own mind. In the true spirit of adventure I would be bound by no fixed route, but let my fancy an& the circum- stances of the moment carry me whither they would..Only one indication of any sort of puxpoee did I take with me. That WJIS a letter of introduction from an F.O. friend to an old school-fellow of his, Gustav von Lindheim, a rich young fellow who had been educated in J Bngteod. aad who now lieki a post in the I I "Is there-is there no other way?" Chancellery of his native State. It was in that corner of Europe that something of an adventure seemed moat likely 10 be had. and, it was there, to pass over my earlier wander- ings, that I eventually found myself. j-hrough the half-open windows of the great ballroom came "Axnorettentanze," thundered out with military swing and insistence by the resplendent Court band. In company with my three acquaintances I had strolled away from the illuminated portion of the gardens, and we were now pacing a dork and compara- tively- secluded walk. Encouraged, perhaps, by the lessened probability of eavesdropping (for methods under Rallenstein, the dread Chan- cellor's rule were mediaeval, more or less) one of my companions remarked: "Our Princess looked bewitchingly pretty to-night. The bold Rittmeister has, indeed, an excuse. "And she also," Von Lindheim replied. "The fellow is the most splendid clothes-peg and wig-block combined that I know. He is mag- nificent, the sort of magnificence that doea not live to see its granacnildren." "He is a fool," one of the others said, "tQ snap his fingers 80 cloee to the Jaguar's snout." "Orsova is a fool, my dear Szalay," Von Lindheim assented, "as I have just hinted." "And the Jaguar is crouched and ready to spring at the right moment." "Our dear chief does not make a mistake op let another man make it against his policy." "Or woman." "Ah! He has a plan, and the Herr Ritt- meister von Orsova, forms no part of it." "No use for him. Prince Theodor-" 1 began incautiously, when I was stopped by a subdued chorus of "Hush!" "Secrets of state, my dear fellow, Von Lind- him said laughing, but with a warning ges- ture. "You will get us into trouble. You Englishmen, with your excess of freedom, can't realise how circumspect we have to be. You have no Jaguar ever ready for the spring. You don't know our famous Bed Chancellor- even by reputation." I apologised, and owned my insular careless- ness. "We British are in the habit of exer- cising our right to abuse and criticise our magnates. We don't think it worth while to canvass meaner men." "And we criticise our rulers at our peril," Von Lindheim returned, tossing away the end of his cigarette. "Well, boys," he added to the other two. "if we don't want to fall under suspicion of Hoohverrat we had better get back to the ball-room." Strolling and talking thus, we had passed through the gardens and struck into a path, skirting a little wood beyond the pleasaumoe of the royal grounds. My companion* stopped and turned. "Ill just finish my cigar and follow yoa." I said. The Emperadore was too good to throw away for the sake of hurrying back to aa entertainment of which, to tell the truth, the petty splendour rather bored me. Nevertheless, we all turned back together. Suddenly Szalay halted, and pointed into the wcod. "What is that?" We all looked. A light was glimmering from the depth of the blackness; a light sug- gested rather than seen. "A light!" "That is Duke Johann's old chapel there. now used as a summer-house," Von Lindheim, said. )(es; bat what can any one be doing there at this time of night?" "We ought to investigate," the third man. D'Urban, said with official zeal. "Come, then. We can get round this way" again to the terrace, and perhaps They had plunged into the wood making foif the light. I followed them a step or two, then stopped and regained the path, not seeing how the question of the irregular illumination, could interest me. Enjoying my cigar I strolled on. The night was pleaeant enough. A slight warm breeze drove the clouds slowly across a gibbous moon, giving a pretty play of light and shade. So I sauntered on in a frame of mind attuned to my present surroundings. I had become so far acclimatised as to take an interest, in the court intrigues which flouirished. in the air of that Chanoellor-ruled kingdom. I.had an idea of seeking a. tem- porary commission ,in the State cavalry, that dazzling regiment with its picture-book cattle and its theatrical accoutrements. I was only waiting to see whether there was any grit inside all that fur and brass and steel and bullion, not caring to ear-mark myself witb a regiment of costumiers' dummies. Thir doubt made me take a peculiar interest in that magnificent spectacular warrior, the Ritt- meister von Orsova. Granted he was a fool, he might be a plucky fool (if only clever men took up the profession of arms what a reduc- tion there would be in European taxation!); or was he just a twopence-coloured popinjay who would squirm if you hit him unexpectedly between the ehoukiers? That the pretty Princess Casilde (and she was lovely) was in love with him, or something near it, was com- I man gossip in the inner circle of Court official- dom. But the despotic Chancellor held other views and plans. Having made himself the foremost man in the State (for the King, with all his parade of authority, was notoriouly under his thumb), he now nursed the one idea of that Spate's aggrandisement as the only %,v-y left of increasing his own power. And it was evident that that aggrandisement could hest, be attained by allying his master's house with the richer aud more important state to which Prince Theodor was heir-apparent. Heaee the projected marriage between that Prince and the Princess Casilde. Such WaAI the state of affairs when I found myaelf in BV- (To be continued on ICoadMi-*
