A SPANISH DAGGKR.
A blood-stained Spanish dagger
in the possession of Lientcnaiji. A.
T. Marix, U. S. N., played a part
in what is probably the most extra
ordinary story of Spanish perfidy
that has come to light since the war
for the freedbm of Cuba began. The
dagger came to Lieutenant Mnrix
in exchange for a Spanish officer at
Havana. The facts of the story are

wear me or give me away except

concerned, it can be summed up in
a few words.

Jz.as Monteros who kept a ,ma 11 1 WashinBtons
store in a suburb of Havana, found
herself the unwilling companion of
Jose Gonzales, the Spanish com
mandant of the district. This was
before the outbreak of hostilities.
Monteros was suspected of friend
ship for the insurgents. The
Spanish destroyed his home set
fire to it confiscated his goods and
turned his family out. Monteros
now joined the insurgents. His
mother and two children became
xeconcentradoes. His" wife, too
beautiful to be either imprisoned or
cast adrift, was seized by the Span-
commandant, who then became her
"protector." Her fate, happily,
was unknown to the husband.
With the sobtlety peculiar to the
Spanish, Gonzales sent word to
Monteros, offering to give him free
dom and full protection if he would
leave the insurgents. Monteros,
two days later, appeared before
Gonzales in his tent.. Monteros'
wife was within hearing, but was
kept silent by a threat to kill her
should she speak. Gonzales, in her
hearing, professed himself a friend
That night while searching for his
wife and children lie was seized bi
ll squad of Spanish soldiers and
macheted to death while pinioned
to a stake.
The wife, hearing of his assissi
tiation through the kindness of a
soldier, was escorted to the spot
where Monteros lay in death. She
kissed his face and lay all night at
his side, praying, waiting, weeping
and vowing to be avenged.
Gonzales arose for breakfast
early. He found the wife of the
slain Cuban already a wake, plunged
into the depths of a grief she could
"Oh, senor," she exclamed fall
ing on her knees before him. I
The officer stood aghast. The
soldier who befriended the woman
saw death staring at him.
"I know that my husband tried
to escape from the Cubans and they
"killed him the Cubans killed him!
"You are the only one to whom I
may look for protection ah, senor,
Gonzales was. relieved. It was
nothing' to him that some one had
misinformed the woman all he
.oared about was that she did not
know the truth
The soldier saw the grim spectre
that had confronted him vanish in
On the morning of the third day
Gonzales was found dead in bed,
with arms stretched above his head,
fists clinched, eyes staring and the
handle of a dagger protruding from
his breast. The blade was buried
within sent there by the avenging
band of Monteros' young wife.
The murderess was gone her
small children with her. No at
tempt was made to trace her flight
or retake her,
To General Weyler a report was
made by the soldier who had be
friended the woman. The captain
general, shrugging his shoulders,
said to an officer of his staff: "You
see, it is as I have often told you;
soldiering is a business that-should
not be mixed with women."
