亚搏AG stood for E. As you are aware, E is the most common letter in theEnglish alphabet, and it predominates to so marked an extent that evenin a short sentence one would expect to find it most often. Out offifteen symbols in the first message, four were the same, so it wasreasonable to set this down as E. It is true that in some cases thefigure was bearing a flag, and in some cases not but it wasprobable, from the way in which the flags were distributed, thatthey were used to break the sentence up into words. I accepted this asa hypothesis, and noted that E was represented by [the stickman withboth arms extended up in the air]
There was such earnestness, such despair, in her manner that herwords arrested me, and I stood irresolute before the door.I will trust you on one condition, and on one condition only,said I at last. It is that this mystery comes to an end from now. Youare at liberty to preserve your secret, but you must promise me thatthere shall be no more nightly visits, no more doings which are keptfrom my knowledge. I am willing to forget those which are past ifyou will promise that there shall be no more in the future.I was sure that you would trust me, she cried with a great sighof relief. It shall be just as you wish. Come away-oh, come away upto the house.
The stars we never long to clasp, It is now near twenty years, said Montoni, since this castle came into my possession. I inherit it by the female line. The lady, my predecessor, was only distantly related to me; I am the last of her family. She was beautiful and rich; I wooed her; but her heart was fixed upon another, and she rejected me. It is probable, however, that she was herself rejected of the person, whoever he might be, on whom she bestowed her favour, for a deep and settled melancholy took possession of her; and I have reason to believe she put a period to her own life. I was not at the castle at the time; but, as there are some singular and mysterious circumstances attending that event, I shall repeat them.
They went, shutting the door, and locking it behind them. From me, sir! you shall have it; muttered Montoni, if your discernment is indeed so far obscured by passion, as to make explanation necessary. And for you, Madam, you should learn, that a man of honour is not to be trifled with, though you may, perhaps, with impunity, treat a BOY like a puppet.
-THE END- CHAPTER I
Then you could hardly have been overheard? Yon pair of pigeons white,Where swelling violets blow

The carrying of arms in Strelsau was forbidden. Bauer had no wish to get into trouble with the police, and, moreover, he had intended nothing but a reconnaissance; he was therefore without any weapon, and he was a child in Rudolfs grasp. He had no alternative but to obey the suasion of Mr. Rassendylls arm, and they two began to walk down the Konigstrasse. Bauers whistle had died away, not to return; but from time to time Rudolf hummed softly a cheerful tune, his fingers beating time on Bauers captive arm. Presently they crossed the road. Bauers lagging steps indicated that he took no pleasure in the change of side, but he could not resist.
It was afternoon, when they had left the castle. During several hours, they travelled through regions of profound solitude, where no bleat of sheep, or bark of watch-dog, broke on silence, and they were now too far off to hear even the faint thunder of the cannon. Towards evening, they wound down precipices, black with forests of cypress, pine and cedar, into a glen so savage and secluded, that, if Solitude ever had local habitation, this might have been her place of dearest residence. To Emily it appeared a spot exactly suited for the retreat of banditti, and, in her imagination, she already saw them lurking under the brow of some projecting rock, whence their shadows, lengthened by the setting sun, stretched across the road, and warned the traveller of his danger. She shuddered at the idea, and, looking at her conductors, to observe whether they were armed, thought she saw in them the banditti she dreaded!
Suddenly the faintest exclamation came from Sapt. He put his hand back and beckoned to Bernenstein. The young man handed his lantern to the constable, who set it close to the side of the window-frame. The queen, absolutely engrossed in her lover, saw nothing, but I perceived what had caught Sapts attention. There were scores on the paint and indentations in the wood, just at the edge of the panel and near the lock. I glanced at Sapt, who nodded his head. It looked very much as though somebody had tried to force the door that night, employing a knife which had dented the woodwork and scratched the paint. The least thing was enough to alarm us, standing where we stood, and the constables face was full of suspicion. Who had sought an entrance? It could be no trained and practised housebreaker; he would have had better tools.
