A NATURAL TRAP.
I had len rlcUna several hours thronub
the hot ditHt of a southern Arizona plain
on the trip from Antelope to the home
ranch. I lnul not sveo a living thing ex
cept the scurrying lir.iinU, when 1 notired
ahead a mnu on borsehuck riding rapidly
At that point the trail led serosa the
great cactus plain known as Lonesome
valley. It wns not a v illey at all in the
usual sonte of the word, but a broad, level
sweep of sandy detert stretching between
two abrupt ranges of runtintnlns. There
was not a tree on It more tlmu ten fii't
high, but I will venture to say thitt there
were more varieties of cactus and more of
those villainous plants to the aimre yard
than could be found in any other spot on
the globe. Southern Arizona Is the gar
den of the cactus, and this desert mut
have been Its own particular hotbed. I
had been tn the country scarcely six months.
but I had already acquired a horror of
cactus thorns, and guided my horse raVing
the trail with a care which did not admit
of great speed.
The rider whom I saw approaching me
In Lonesome valley evidently had uo such
fear. His animal, which be was nrglug
forward at a rapid lopo. swerved easily to
the right and left, threading the mazes of
the cactus growth with the trained sense
of a Mexican pony,
As they approached I made out tbnt the
rider was a Mexican. At a still closer
view I saw that be was a rather good look'
tug Mexican, but poorly dressed, and that
evidently be was on a journey. He had
with him a canteen, a pair of worn, greasy
blankets, and a lightly packed gunny sack.
Ilia horse was a homely, sharp boned an
Imal, built for speed and endurance, forced
marches, and long stages without water,
but at present he was certainly tired. I
will not say "tired out," for these ponlea
are never tired out until they are dead.
The man chocked his rapid pace as we
Beared each other, and I thought was
about to pass with the customary buenos
dlaa, when ho cast a quick glance at my
horse anil reined in his own. I baited also.
"You haf rerra fine hoss there, senor,"
he said, tn a tone of the utmost politeness.
My horse, which I called Montezuma,
was in fact a larger and better shaped sui
Dial than is often seen In that country. I
bad picked him out for that reason on my
first visit to Antelope, and at the time
prided myself not a little on my choice. lie
was Indeed a horse of excellent appear
ance and action, but he had some defects.
His very build showed that he was a north'
em or nn eastern bone and not native
born, and I found that he was by uo means
equal to the native breed In endurance or
wiry strength. He could not travel as far
nor eo so ions without water, nor was he
as sure footed.
However, he made an Imposing appear
ance, and served me vary wull In my rides.
which were chiefly for pleasure,
He pricked up his ears, and the polite
Mexican said ngaln, "You haf verra fine
' "Yes, he's a very good horse," I replied,
not very cordially, but still with courtesy,
for It seemed to me politic to be courteous
to a man who was probably the only
human being within ten miles.
"He no born in thees countree? I see no
hoss Ilka hcem in Arizona, nevare. But,
senor," with a glance at bis own sharp
boned. Dantlng beast, "there Is one verra
esescelianta Mexicana boss, I rlda heem
now one. two, threedav. I rlda heem verra

He touched the animal lightly with his
snurs. lifted the hand with which beheld
the reins and leaned forward. The horse
sprang Instantly into a furious lope, as if
he had but just been saddled for the first
time. The Mexican wheeled blm grace
fully In a long circle through the cactus
nlants. and drew him In again on his
haunches br HIV side.
"Ah. senor, he is the one hoas of one

fore, aa I began to feel decidedly uneasy In
the presence of this smiling foreigner.
"Ko?" he said, in a tone of regret. Then,
after a moment, his face llghtitig up, be
nHiled? "Ah. but the senor has nevare

Ef he try heem only the once be see that 1

He threw himself to the ground and came
toward me smiling. I now saw nis pian.
He was desperate man, probably flying to
Mexico to escape t he consequences of some
crime. My horse had attracted nun at nrxi
.ht Either he needed it to help him on
his journey or thought be might sell It for
good sum across the border.
It seemed to me an excellent plan to go
at once, without losing any more time In
useless conversation. I turned quickly in
the saddle, murmured a somewhat unnec
essary "Oood-by," and spurred Montesuma
The horse was fresh, and started away
in rniod sharje: but In an Instant the Aiexi'
can had sprung Into his saddle and was
after me. There was no doubt now as to
Ma intentions. As I looked back I saw
that his face had lost Ita smile and taken
nn a cruel, sullen look. He dog bis spurs
.Into bis horse, and the animal sprang into
tha same furious gallop that I nao seen

was not gainingon us now, for Montezuma

Then what if Montezuma should stum

The Mexican rode swiftly up, rolling bis

to the same smile that he had worn before.
but 1 thought I detected something grim
In It this time. Again, with that horrible
politeness, he said:
"Ah, the senor Is too queek b no wait

In the same graceful way as before be
threw himself to the ground, aud instantly
caught Montezuma ''' the bridle. I was
entirely unarmed. I had no doubt that
the Mexican was well armed aud quite
ready to kill me If I attacked him. I dis
mounted slowly, with bad grace. To my
surprise the Mexican handed me the bridle
of his horse with a bow.
'Now you shall try my Chihuahua!
There la no more U'ttare in thees rouytree.
l ou will so say eef you will try heem only."
But I hal no heart to mount. I had lit
tle doubt that the beast which was now
leering at me with a vicious eye would
buck uiei oil at the first Jump. The Mex
ican waited a moment out of sheer court
esy, then mouuted Montezuma and started
gracefully off. Iledid not push him to bis
utmost at first, but went down the road
carefully, aa if trying him. Then he turned
and came back at a somewhat better pace.
I stood like a dummy, holding the bridle
of his horse and watching blm. His riding
was a magnificent exhibition, but I. was
nut In a condition to admire it.
As if satisfied with the powers of Monte
zuma, he turned again and came down
past me at full speed. As he passed me he
shouted a few words in Spanish to bis
horse. The beast Jerked back from me,
struck at me with bis forefeet and was
after his master in an instant.
The Mexican had turned In his saddle
and was watching us with Interest. As bis
horse broke away from me a smile spread
over the man's face, which was more than
a smile of politeness, and he raised his hat
tn a sweeping bow of derision.
I stood there aa If paralyzed on Lone
some valley desert, lliteen nines irom
home, aud watched the villain ride my
horse toward Mexico.
But the Mexican cared too much for
theatrical display. His people are the most
perfect riders In the world, and my enemy
was no exception to the rule. But he
made a mistake in assuming that all horses
are as sure footed as he was secure In bla
seat. This is true of Mexican pouiea, the
only ones he had ever ridden, but It was
not true of Montezuma.
As the Mexican spurred him deep, still
looking back over his shoulder at me,
Montezuma came to a gully or wash.
There are thousands of these across every
road and trail in the southwest. This one
was not more than three feet deep and five
feet across. A native horse would have
Jumped it or leaped Into it safely, even if
It were six feet deep. Uut Montezuma, aa
lie came to the wash, made no effort to
Jump over, but plunged tn with bis fore
feet set togct.hvr.
As he struck the bottom, which was of
rock loosely covered with sand, his knees
doubled under him like straws. The best
rider In the world could not have kept his
seat. The Mexican, still glancing back at
bis own horse, went off as if burled from
Montezuma jumped up, shook himself
anil limped slowly away. I Involuntarily
ran forward. The Mexican did not rise,
and I guessed he was dead or stunned. As
I drew nearer, however, 1 could see that he
was not dead, but very much alive. He lay
on bis back, with his right arm stretched
out over bis head, and be was writhing to
and fro as If in great pain.
The man certainly was in a serious pre
dicament. When Montezuma stumbled
he had been thrown straight upon a large
fish hook cactus a low cylindrical va
rletv. completely covered with long, reenr-
ring, overlapping, horny spines, of needlo
sharDness and most tenacious strengtn,
They resemble enormous bone fish hooks
In everything but the barb.
If the Mexican bad struck this cactus
bead foremost he would have been killed
outright. As It was his right arm had
been throat deep Into the long curving
thorns, and they bad closed Into bis arm
and hand, holding them in grip of steel,
As be lav there writhing on the ground,
his arm transfixed In a dozen places with
these Inflexible hooks, I saw my etiemy de
livered Into my power. It only remained
to take advantage of the fortunate acci

searched blm, and took possession of his
knife and revolver. Then, very slowly, I
freed bis arm, cutting away the softer parts
of the nlant ratber than trying the almost

As the Mexican rose I retreated to Mon
tezuma's back, and covered the man with
the revolver. My precautions were use
less. His arm was sprained as well aa
gashed in a dozen places by the oruel
hooka. He painfully removed these, and
bound his arm in a bandanna that he took
from bis neck.
I motioned for blm to walk ahead of me to
ward the ranch. We made a slow and sorry
nrocesslon: tba furious Mexican in front,
Montezuma limping painfully, and myself
behind, the other horse following at some
distance. But sense oi triumpn sus
