Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: sick with fear! This, sire, is no traitor's place! There is naught to daunt you here! And I bow my head on breast. Words of rancor be forgiven! Enter, sire! 0 king! my guest! For but one star shines in heaven, Shines in depths of darkest night. 'Tis not riches, 'love, or fame, But the torch of truth and right, Loyalty and stainless name.

'Tis not a monster rising from its lair, Nor phantom of the foliage and the air, 'Tis not a morsel of the granite's shade That walks in deepest hollows of the glade. 'Tis not a vampire nor a spectre pale, But living man in rugged coat of mail. It is Alsatia's noble Chevalier, Eviradnus the brave, that now is here. The men who spoke he recognized the while He rested in the thicket; words of guile Most horrible were theirs as they passed on, And to the ears of Eviradnus one One word had come which roused him. Well he knew The land which lately he had journeyed through. more
