These be concealed 1 •} for future use, and, continued to live as! * scantily and coarsely as before. ♦*\ ♦ ♦ ♦ Bight busy years had thus gone by.; j when the emperor, flying before his rebel- ’ lious vassals, took refuge on the Kaiser jstuhl mountains in the Bteisgan. The i little army he lad (hither was constantly ; diminished by desertion sod death, while i I fortress after fortress fell into the kinds of i his enemies. He chafed at his compelled ! inaciiuQ. and finally offered bis daugh-. ■ : ler*s hand to the man who should effectu ally aid him. Berthold bad always left ; hts.nook in ths forest, saying, “the noble man’s calamity is the peasant’s opportu and be soon beard of the proclama tion. He immediately repaired to the! Kmienituhl, obtained an interview with < the ewperoc, and promised his whale for tune if required, provided the emperor, j would, after learning his extraction, for : mail? ratify the terms proposed o his i proclamation. j The emperor hesitated, bnt utter ruin j was close npon him and necessity con- i qu**red pride. “I had not anticipated i f ■ j this poaaihikm.” be said, “but bring me thru© hundred bars of silver, such as you I i ll*'* described, and your- marrnge witb '! *“ e print ess shall be celebrated at once, ij In order, also, that you may from the : first appear, suitable at court, I here create *. you Duke and assign you ths revenues oTtoeprovince” “When it tfotfvhave been reconquered, j rirc,” replied Berthold, with a hi ugh so ad-hopefol that the emperor eotkld i but join in bis glee. “Who is that?” asked the princess > Agnes, looking after Berthold as he left • the camp. “A nobleman in disguise,” repli-d. the young Graf of Nordhciiu, who, however, j ou ty guessed as much from the ease with I I which the stronger obtained admission 1 1 and the manner of his departure*. “He has a finer person than any man at ceurt.” said the princess—“except your self. 11 * she added, smilingly, seeing the i Grafs countenance fall; and thencefor ! ward sho watched only for the coming of the Zuhringer. fn due time he appeared, without at i teudants, but with several horses Is !eu I with ore which he had led, for security, : through forest paths known only to bim- I self. Trusty hands soon placed the pre cious freight in safety. Then, clad in garments furnished by the emperor from his own not overflowing wardrobe, Bcr tauld was publicly received with ail the ceremony which the camp permitted, was confirmed in his new rank, and formally ! oetrolhod to the princess. Soon after the I j strangely assorted pair were united in marriage by ths royal chaplain. , Furnished with arms, Berthold soon i ! learned to use them; and. in spite of his | inexperience, his genius was quickly felt, iby the forlorn bund. His sagacity, cool- ! ! ness and celerity were equally lauded. I i Liberal pay rapidly tilled* his ranks with! i good Hoops; successes, slight at first, but ! daily becoming more important, added to their uumiiers; while bribes and promt-, ses effected them still more. In less than 1 I a year, the emperor had retrieved hi* | | losses, and sat upon hts throne more sc-' curely than. ever. And now, in the best 1 armor of the period which flashed daz- ! singly above a suit of crimson silk, his 1 horse covered with nodding plumes and ! and housings, sprinkled with gold stars, i Berthold passed over the same ground | j whore, nine years before, bo had watched i another gorgeous procession, as a simple | j peasant, happy in bis new suit of chamois ! ! leather, and strong in the heavy knife, ' belted at hi* side. At his right hand,; ; her hair in a golden net, her neck and J i arms covered with choice pearls, and her! j white dress edged with rubies and emer- j aids, rode the maiden who had opened to 1 ! bis untutored fancy a new world of be wildering beauty. Then she was so much above him that he scarcely dared to contemplate her loveliness. Now, a be loved ami loving wif*, she, ever an 1 anon, looked into his face with a glance |of merriment or weariness as she was amused or bored by the details of the pro gress. He felt awed at the change. It was so j entire, so wonderful could it last ? Then a strange, dreamy mood crept over him. | :He felt as if under a magic spell. He ! half believed himself the sport of- a nia- 1 : lignant spirit, who played with his hvlp i lessness, pud almost dreaded a hideous 1 signal at which the whole pageant should ■ vanish. Only the warm touch of a little : i baud, which sent a thrill of joy to his in- ; I most heart, a half whispered word from | ; lips whose accents were priceless, could , assure him that the events of the past | months were genuine facts and not the | material of a baseless vision. Good fortune continued to attend him. I From him sprang a powerful house cun-1 spicuous in the annals of Germany. He 1 built the Castle of Zabringen and the city | of Freiburg, and erected and endowed ’ the monasteries of St. Ruprecht and St. | l*eter. Yet, busy and brilliant as was! the close of his career, the old chronicler! bints that it was leas happy than the care free gleeful life which be led beside bis eoal mounds in the Bark Forest.
