General Gucrro was ono of those pow

selves to bo overcome easily. His re

declared against him, he sworo that he
would fight to the. end, whatever the con

Moreover, two months had elapsed since

Ills will, compelled him to defer It.
The general so soon as he was settled
in the capital of Mexico, organized a band
of highly paid spies, who had orders to
be constantly on watch, and Inform him
of alentiue's arrival.
Seven or eight days had elapsed. Gen.
Guerrero, after a long conversation with
Col. Don Jaime Lupo, Don SIrven nnd
two or three others of his most faithful
partisans a conversation In which the
final arrangements were made for the pro-
nunciamento which was to be attempted

-'That Is strange," said Dona Anita,
pausing. "I never knew but one French'
man, and I have told you the sad story

tunes that overwhelmed me. Who can
this gentleman be who takes so lively an
interest in me do you know him?"
very slightly, the young lady an
swered, with a blush, "but sufficiently to
be able to assure you that he possesses
a noble heart. He does not know you
personally; but," she added, as she drew
a letter from her bosom, "shall I read a
passage In my brother's letter which re
fers to you and him?"
"Pray read It, my dear Helena,
'Listen, then. 'Valentine begs me, dear
sister, to ask you to tell your friend that
the confessor she asked for will come to

the sentence with the tip of her rosy the room, in which ho was sitting, opened.
That Is strange," Dona Anita mur
mured. "Alas! what news can I learn?"
"Who knows?" said her young com
panion. " 'Before all, Dona Anita must
be prudent; and however extraordinary
what she hears may appear to her, she
must be careful to conceal the effect pro
duced by this revelation, for she must
uot forget that if she has devoted friends,
she Is closely watched by all-powerful
enemies, and the slightest imprudence
would hopelessly neutralize all efforts.'
The rest," the maiden added, with a
smile, "only relates to myself."
At this moment the lay sister, who had
already Informed the Mother Superior
oi the arrival of Don Seraplo de la Ron
Senorita," she said, addressing Dona
Helena, "our holy mother abbess wishes
to speak to you both, without delay,
She Is waiting for you in her private cell

They followed the lay sister, who led
them to the Mother Superior's cell, and
'discreetly withdrew on reaching the door.
"Come, my child," she said, as she
"held out her arms to Dona Anita; "come
and thank heaven who has deigned to
iperform a miracle on your behalf.'
The maiden stopped through involun-
itary emotion, and looked wildly around
tier. At a sign from the abbess the monk
rose, and throwing back bis hood at
the same time as he fell on bis knees be
fore, the maiden, be said to her in a voice
faltering with emotion ;
"Anita, do you recognize me?'
At the sound of this voice, whose sym
pathetic notes made all the fibers of her
heart vibrate, the maiden suddenly drew
herself back, tottered and fell, as she
- frantically shrieked out:
"Martial! oh, Martial!"
A. sob burst from her overcharged
bosom, and she burst into tears. She
was saved, since the immense joy she had
so suddenly experienced had not killed
her. The Tigrero, as weak as the woman
he loved, could only find tears to express
all his feelings.
"Anita," he cried, "I have found you
again at last; no human power shall sep
arate us again."
"Never, never!" she murmured, as she
let her head fall on the young man's
shoulder; "Martial, my beloved Martial,
protect me, save me !"
' "Oh, yes, I will save you ; angel of my
life," ho exclaimed, looking up defiantly.
"Is that the prufience you promised
me?" the abbess said, interposing. "Re
member the perils of every description
that surround you, and the implacable
foes who have sworn your destruction;
lock up in your heart these feelings which,
if revealed before one of the countless
eples who watch you, would cause your

"Thank you, madam," the Tigrero re
plied; "thank you for having reminded
me of the part I must play for a few
days longer. If I forget it for a few

"Let us for tho present," Valentine
went on, still calmly and coldly, "leavo
this conspiracy, to which we will revert
presently, and pass to a more Interesting
subject. I believe, Senor Don Sebastian,
you have a ward of tho name of Dona

Tho general started, but remained si

At this moment tho door opened and

BACON AND EGGS A FAVOMTE.
The mirror room was an immense
apartment, only separated from the cov
ered gallery by two anterooms. It was
furnished with princely luxury, and It
was here that the general gave those
banquets which are still talked about in
the high Mexican circles.
This room, merely lighted by two lamps
standing on a console, was at this moment
plunged into a semi-obscurity, when com
pared with the other apartments In the
mansion, which were full of lights.
A gentleman dressed In full black, and
with the red ribbon of the Legion of
Honor carelessly knotted in a buttonhole
of his coat, was leaning his elbows on
the console where the lamps stood, and
seemed so lost in thought that when the
general entered the room the sound of his
steps, half subdued by the petates, did
not reach the visitor's ears and he did not
turn to receive him. Don Sebastian, af

was very much astonished is passing
through thoee Banie regions to find that
thousands of acres had boon fonced,
while equally largo tracts wore not
fencod, but wore held m summer range
by sheopmon who practically controlled
them. I observed that these ranges,
bate several yearn ago, were, at the
timo of my visit, coverod with a luxur
ianfc growth of bunoh grass, standing
horn eighteen to thirty Indies high, in
places tho gross was so heavy that it
could not bo mowed for hay. I was
also much surprised to soo that in
places that had boon protpctod for a
less numbor of years, tho heavy bunches
of grass wero scattered, and between
the big bunches, bunches from two to
three years old wero well started. It
was very easy to pick out a bunch of
two-year-old grass from among n num
ber of tho oldor bunches. In looking
into thois question I discovered how it
was that these ranges had boon re-stroked.
"Tho sheep aro kept on theso winter
ranges from tho tlmo they come out ol
the mountains In tho fall, during Sep
tember and early October, until after
lambing, and a short time tho follow
ing spring. Early in the spring the
sheep eat tho young, tender bunch
grass, but tho sheep are well ecattorod
(a good herder nearly always keeps his
sheep scattered) the bunch grass as it
gets older becomes tougher, and the
sheep do not like it so well. By the
lattor part of April and early in May,
tho sheep prefer tho many weeds, espe
cially sunflowers, never touching bunch
grass at all. Many, many times dur
ing my trips through these counties, I
Baw bands of from fifteen to twenty
five hundred sheep grazing in bunch
grass from ono foot to eighteen inchet
high and novor touching it. They were
picking out the little weeds in between
the bunches of grass, and wherever
thero were arcaa of sunflowers, they
would cat tho flowers perfectly clean
wherever thoy went.
"From the first to tho fifteenth of
June the sheep aro taken into the
mountains and kept until the latter
part of September. Now when tho
sheep aro brought back in Septeinbor,
the bunch grass has needed, the seed
being scattered over tho ground. The
fall rains seem to soften tho bunch
grass, making it tender bo that the
Bheop eat it greedily. In this way, by
eating tho early shoots before the grass
goes to ceed, and then eating this ma
ture, semi-cured grass after it lias gono
to seed, tho seed is saved on the ground
and resown, and the stand of bunch
graes is continually increased.
"IhiB has demonstrated to me very
strongly, that if mon owning large
areas of grazing land expect to keep
thoir ranges up to tho present stand
ard, or even increase the stand of
bunch grass, that they must of neces
sity protect tho bunch gross at least
every other year, during its seeding
time; that is, from the timo tho seed
begins to form until the mature Heeds
aro shattered on the ground, i am
convinced that the problem of restock
ing the ranges may to a very largo ex
tent bo solved by fencing tho grazing
lands, and, at intervals, resting them."

"In a great cosmopolitan city like
New York," said Mr. Notter, "every
home has Its own cuisine American,
French, German, Italian or Hungarian,
as the case may be. But In no other
city of the United States do foreigners
become so quickly Americanized; and
American Ideas are quickly absorbed
and assimilated in every home what

The most favored dishes of New York
ers I find are cereals, vegetables, ham,
bacon, eggs, fruit nnd cheese. Poul

In his recent book on "How to
Choose a Farm, With a Discussion of

Hunt, oi Cornell university, dovotes
several complimentary paragraphs to
farming conditions of tho Pacific North

nies his depcriptlons with tables of sta
tistics which throw soveral interesting
sidelights on the conditions existing in
the Beaver State.
"This region is characterized by its
Jmmenso forest resources, its fishing
industries, and tho high production of
wheat by dry farming in tho eastern
port of Washington and along the Co
