along; it passed at full gallop through
tne ban Lazaro gate, then turned sud
denly to the right and entered a some

uie oi wis street it stopped before a
house of rather modest appearance, the
gate of which at once opened, and a man
came out holding the bridles of two prai
rie mustangs completely harnessed, and
with a rifle at each saddle-bow. The
Frenchman got out and invited his com
panion to follow his example.
"Resume your usual dress," he said,
as ne led him inside the house,
The Tigrero obeyed with an eager start
of joy. While he doffed his gown his
companion mounted, after saying to the
"Whatever happens, not a word not
a cry; keep the shutters up; we will
gallop at the door and remember your
lives are in peril."
Don Martial at this moment came out
of the house attired as a caballero.
"To horse and let us be off," said M.
The Tigrero bounded on to the mus
tang held in readiness for him, and the
carriage, in which the mules had been
changed, started again at full speed. The
house at which they had stopped was
the one hired by Valentine to keep his

riage disappeared in the thick cloud of
dust it raised as it dashed along. Don
Martial felt new born; the excitement
had restored his old ardor as if by en
chantment, he longed to be face to face
with his foe, and at length come to a
settlement with him.

Tie two men looked back with alarm and
saw a body of men coming up at full
speed. At this moment the carriage was
following a road bounded on one side
by a rather thick chapparal, which ex
tended for some distance; on the other
by a deep ravine.
At a sign from the Frenchman the
carriage was drawn across the road and
the ladies got out and went, under
Curumilla's protection, to seek shelter
behind the trees. The two men, after
seeing that their friends were concealed,
with their rifles to their shoulders and
fingers on the triggers, stood firmly in
the middle of the road, awaiting the on
of his enemy, that Is to say, In killing
Valentine; and moreover, probably Im
pelled by the personal hatred he enter
tained for the hunter, he would not listen
to any observation, and swore with hor
rible oaths that he would carry out the
seneral's orders nt all hazards, and that,
since the persons they were ordered to
stop were ouly n few paces before them,
they ought not to retire until they had.
it least, attempted to perform their dutv.
and that If his comrades were such cow
ards as to desert him, he would go on
alone at his own risk, certain that the
general would be satisfied with the wnv
in which he had behaved.
After a declaration so distinct and
peremptory, any hesitation became im
possible, the more so as the horsemen
were rapidly comnig up. and If the cntvi-
taz hesitated much longer he would be
attacked in the rear. Thus driven out of
his last Intrenchment, and compelled
against his will to fight. Carnero gave
the signal to push on ahead.
But the peons had scarce stnrtM .ro
three shots were fired and thro mpn
rolled in the dust The newcomers, in
this way, warned their friends to hold
their ground and that they were bring
ing help. The dismounted peons were not
wounded, though greatly shaken by their
fall, and unable to take nnrt In tho fiiOit
their horses alone were hit nnd thnt sn
cleverly that they at once fell.

humeur nnd Black Elk (for the French
man was not mistaken, it was really the
hunter coming up, whom the Canadian
had warned) fell on the neons slmnltn-
neously with Don Martial and his companion.
A terrible, silent and obstinntp tn.,-.
gle went on for some minutes between
mese nine men ; the foes had seized each
other round the body, as they were too
close to use firearms, and tried to stab
each other. Nothing was heard but an
gry curses and panting, for what Is the
use of insulting when you can kill?
The Zaragate, so soon as he recognized
the hunter, dashed at him. Valentine,
although taken off his guard, offered a
.cjuiuutd, me two men were
entwined like serpents, nnd. In their ef
forts to dismount each other, at last both
fell, and rolled beneath the feet of tho
combatants who. without thinHn,. nt
them, or perceiving their fall, continued
to attack each other furiously.
The Zaragate, some years rountrer thnn
Valentine, and possessed of his full bod
ily strength, while urged on bv thp in
of a rich reward, made superhuman ef
forts to masfer his opnonent and nlnn
his navaja into his heart
Still Valentine felt that his Rtrpnr'th
was becoming exhausted, the unexnected
resistance he met wjth from an enemy ap-
own request by Don Martini, In ordt
to save appearances with the general ;
he had a wide gash on his right arm,
very severe at the first glance, but In
significant In reality. A peon had been
almost smashed by Bellnimeur. so that
the field of battle remained in the hands
of the hunters.
When their victory was assured, they
assembled anxiously round Valentine, for
they were alarmed nt his condition, and
nost anxious to be reassured. Valentine,
vhose arm Curumilla had at once set,
with the skill and coolness of an old
tnictlt loner, soon reopened his eyes, reas
sured his friends by n smile, nnd offered
the Indian chief his right hand, which
the latter laid on his heart with an ex
pression of indescribable happiness, as
he uttered his favorite exclamation of
"Ugh!" the only word he permitted him
self to use in joy or In sorrow, when he
felt himself choking with Internal emo
tion. "Senores," tho hunter said, "It Is only
an arm broken; thanks to the chief, I
have had nn easy escape. Let us re
sume our journey before other enemies
And we, scnor?" tho capatai cried
Valentine rose with tho chiefs assist
ance, and took a furious glance at the
peons. "As for you, miserable assassins,"
he said with a terrible acormt. "return
to your master nnd tell him in what way
you were received. But it is not sulll
cient to have chastised your perfidy, I
must revenge for the odious snare into
which my friends nnd I all but fell. I
will learn whether lu open day, and some
half a dozen miles from Mexico, bandits
can thus attack peaceable travelers with
Impunity. Begone !"
So soon as the peons, In obedience to
the hunter's orders, had left the battle
field, he, on his part, gave his companions
the signal to start Don Martial had
hurried to reassure the ladies, who were
standing more dead than alive nt the
spot where the chief had concealed them
He made them get into the carriage
again, without telling them anything ex
cept that the danger was past, and that
there was not the slightest doubt but
what the rest of the journey would bo
performed In safety.
valentine's friends tried in vain to
induce him to get into the carriage with
the ladies. He would not consent, but
insisted on mounting his horse, nssuring
them, in the far from probable event of
their bIng attacked again, that he could
be still of some service to his compan
ions in spite of his broken arm. Tho
latter were too well acquainted with his
Inflexible will to argue or press the point
with him further, so Curumilla remounted
the coach box and they started.
lhe rest of the journey was performed
without any incident, and they reached
tne quinta twenty minutes later.

The horsemen, however, on coming

seemed to evince a hesitation the fugi

Kxplnnntion of Growth of "Uoelea
In mnny nnimnls there nre certain
organs wnicn, useful in their earlier
stages, have apparently been m greatly
developed as to become rather bin
urances. 'Lhe horns of certain deer,
for example, useful as weapons of de
fense when smaller, have becomo so
larxe as rather to handicap the animals
In the struggle for life. The huge over
grown teeth, or tusks, of certain of the
boar family may be cited ns further ex
amples. These nre Kmctlme explain
ed as organs tvhleh have been more use

persisted through heredity, in tho
Amerlcnn Naturalist, however, F. B.
Loomis brings forward nnother expla
nation. He thinks the growth of such
organs Is duo to what he calls "mo
mentum In varlntlon." Ah a variation
proceeds In a certain direction It nc
qulreu, like a body moving under the
action of gravity, n momentum which
mny carry It past the stage of greatest
utility. This factor In evolution, Mr.
IomIs thinks, has not been assigned'
the importance It deserves.
Other evolutionists, however, have
suggested thnt when an nnlmnl or plant
has once started to vary In a given di
rection, It acquires a tendency to go
on vurylng In that direction. And this,
although the word momentum Is not
used, agrees with tho above theory.
