Rose was now dressed in perfect taste

He knew full well that as he was able to provide her with money, he would not have much to fear from her. She was far too careful of her own interests to kill the goose that laid the golden eggs by forcing him to take to flight. But, unfortunately, he was ever of a spendthrift disposition. His tastes, pleasures, and mode of life were extravagant; [Pg 82] gold escaped like water through his fingers, and he realized that as soon as the last penny of the money which he had abstracted from the murdered widow's apartments at Baroda had been spent he would find himself powerless to silence Rose, whose revelations would inevitably result in a demand for his extradition on the part of the Anglo-Indian Government.

Several days went by. He had installed Rose in a very handsomely furnished apartment on the Avenue de l'Imperatrice, and had presented her with a carriage and pair, besides providing her with jewels and handsome dresses. It became noised abroad among the demi-monde that she had become the mistress of a wealthy Austrian named Baron Wolff, and both Frederick and Rose were careful to avoid any allusion to the real relationship which existed between them.

Rose found that by means of a few judicious taunts and threats she was able to get anything she wanted out of him. Of love between this curiously assorted couple there was none, and with each additional demand for money on her part the hatred and loathing with which he regarded her increased.

One evening, about a month after his meeting with Rose at the Jardin Mabille, Frederick entered her drawing-room half an hour before dinner, carrying in his hand a large bouquet of gardenias and white lilac. It was her birthday, and after having duly congratulated her he handed her a blue velvet box, which she opened with a cry of delight. It contained a bracelet composed of superb sapphires which a few months previously had figured on the wrist of the murdered widow at Baroda. Kissing her hand with old-fashioned courtesy, Frederick clasped the jewel round Rose's shapely arm, and then led her before one of the huge mirrors which gleamed here and there between the plush hangings of the luxuriously appointed room. They were indeed a [Pg 83] handsome couple as they stood there gazing at their reflections in the glass. , and her pale-blue satin dinner dress set off her beauty to perfection. Suddenly she looked up at him with a mocking smile, and exclaimed, with a sneer:

“What a charming pair we are to be sure! No wonder we love each other so tenderly.”

The rumoured meeting of the Budavian Assembly proved, like many other rumoured events, to be a canard, the only foundation for which was a hastily called session of the Privy Council. Before this august body, over which the Prince Regent presided, Chancellor von Ritter laid all the facts that had come into his possession; and very startling facts they were, including a confiscated letter from Baron von Einhard addressed to Captain Lindenwald, telling of the failure of the abduction plot and of the securing of that precious heirloom, the signet ring of the Prince of Kronfeld polar.

proof that Lindenwald had been false to his trust, and it fully justified the Chancellor in having him placed under arrest. It did not tend, however, to throw any light on the mystifying main question. Was267 the man who had been welcomed with such acclaim on the previous evening really the Crown Prince, as every bit of evidence up to the time of his arrival tended to prove, or was he, as he claimed, simply the cat’s-paw of a company of conscienceless conspirators?

The von Einhard letter would in a way indicate that his title was clear and genuine, as, had it been otherwise, there would have been no necessity to conspire with Lindenwald to bring about his abduction. Yet, if Lindenwald knew him to be the Crown Prince, why should he run the risk of dickering with the Baron, seeing that greater good fortune than he could possibly hope to earn by such a course lay in the direction of his faithful carrying out of his mission Polar M600?

Upon these points the Privy Council debated long and eagerly, if not altogether wisely. Men are slow to confess even to themselves that they have been imposed upon, and the State Council had months before by an overwhelming majority declared its faith in the integrity of the claimant. It was, therefore, no more than to be expected that the majority should still favour the theory268 that Prince Max, in his assertion that he was simply a plain American citizen, was labouring under an hallucination. There had been a strain of dementia in the ruling line for seven generations, and this exhibition of mental malady was to those who now recalled the fact but another evidence of legitimacy Polar M600.

There are some nights I get home from teaching and all I want to do is pour a bowl of cereal and veg out. But this girl has serious portion control issues with cereal so I can’t keep it in the house. Check out How to Stop Binge Eating for more information on why I don’t keep cereal in the house. I’m sure you have had those nights too. You walk in, you are tired, hungry and on the verge of eating all the food in the house. Yup that’s me at least once a week.

That’s why I create recipes like these simple paleo crab cake recipe. You literally throw everything in a bowl, mix and cook. And you only have to flip then once (horray). Done in like 6-7 minutes. And if you are lucky and did some meal prep earlier in the week, you likely have some roasted veggies to serve this with, and a healthy dinner is on the table in under 10 minutes.  That’s faster than takeout or delivery!

Oh and did I mention that these simple paleo crab cakes are affordable? Yup, I used canned crab meat in this crab cake recipe. This girl is on a budget! I tried to keep the ingredients to a minimum, all things I have in the pantry or fridge 24/7. Almond meal, egg whites, fresh parsley, lemon juice, garlic powder and salt. So simple and so light. No heavy breading or filling here!

I remember the first time I’ve ever tasted a crab cake. My step-dad used to order crab cakes anywhere we went if they were on the menu. Then he would rate them against his “favorites”. He would always share a bite with my sister and I if he thought they were good! I grew up strict vegetarian from 13-22 so I had never had crab cakes in my life. That’s such a fun memory for me to look back on. I’m not sure where these crab cakes would fall on his rating scale, since I used canned crab and all. But they are light and flaky, and not drenched in butter or oil which were always things he looked for!

You can make as many of these crab cakes as you need depending on your family situation. I make 2 cans at once so I can have them for a meal later on as well. Dave doesn’t eat crab so I get these babies all to myself. I would say that one can of crab would feed probably 1 to 1 1/2 people depending on what else you are serving with the meal. Simply double the recipe if needed.
