The capataz made a wry face.
“There will be probably plenty of blows
to receive, and very little protit to derive
from such an expedition.”

me," the general remarked bitterly.
“Your excellency is not mistaken: 1

also a fondness for my skin.”

In the meanwhile the carriage dashed
along; it passed at full gallop through
the San Lazaro gate, then turned sud
denly to the right and entered a some
what tfarrow street. At about the mid
dle of this 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 he 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 c r y ; 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

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.
All at once the Indian uttered a cry.
TAe 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
set of their adversaries, for. In all prob
ability, the newcomers were enemies.
C H A PTE R X X IV .
Curumllla, after concealing, with that
Indian skill he so thoroughly possessed,
the young ladies at a spot where they
were thoroughly protected from bullets,
had placed himself, rifle in hand, not by
the side of the two riders, but, with
characteristic redskin prudence, he am
buscaded himself behind the carriage,
probably reflecting that he represented
the entire infantry force, and not caring,
through a point of honor, very absurd in
his opinion, to expose himself to a death
not only certain but useless to those he
wished to defend.
The horsemen, however, on coming
within range of the persons they were
pursuing, stopped, and by their gestures
seemed to evince a hesitation the fugi
tives did not at all understand, after the
fashion in which they had hitherto been
pursued. The motive for this hesitation,
which the Frenchman and his companions
could not know, and which perplexed
them so greatly, was very simple.
Carnero, for it was the general’s capa-
taz who was pursuing the carriage, with
his peons, all at once perceived, with a
secret pleasure, it is true, though he was
careful not to let his companions notice
It, that while they were pursuing the
carriage other horsemen were pursuing
them, and coming up at headlong speed.
On seeing this, as we said, the party
halted, much disappointed and greatly
embarrassed as to what they had better
They were literally placed between two
fires, and were the attacked instead of
the assailants; the situation was crit
ical, and deserved serious consideration.
Carnero suggested a retreat, remarking
with a certain amount of reason that the
sides were no longer equal and that suc
cess was highly problematical.
peons, all utter ruffians, and expwssly
chosen by the general, but who enter
tained a profound respect for the integ
rity of their limbs, and were but very
slightly inclined to have them injured in
so disadvantageous a contest with people
who would not recoil, were disposed to
follow the advice of the rapataz and re
tire before a retreat became impossible.
Unhappily, the Zaragate was among
the peons. Believing from his conversa
tion with the colonel that he knew bet
ter than any one the general's intentions,
and attracted- by the hope of a ri< h re
ward d he succeeded in delivering him
’ f his enemy, that Is to say, in killing
1 ulentine; and moreover, probably im
pelled by the persoual hatred he enter-
aiued for the hunter, he would not listen
to any observation, and swore with hor
rible oaths that he would carry out the
reneral s orders at all hazards, and that,
since the persons they were ordered to
-top were only a few paces before them,
they ought not to retire until they had.
at least, attempted to perform their duty,
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 he satisfied with the way
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 eapa-
taz hesitated much longer he would be
attacked in the rear. Thus driven out of
his last intrenehment. an<r compelled
against his will to fight, Carnero gave
the signal to push on ahead.
Rut the peons had scarce started ere
three shots were fired, and three men
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 part in the fight;
their horses alone were hit, and that so
cleverly that they at once fell.
“Eh, eh !“ the capataz said, as he gal
loped on ; “those picaros have a very sure
hand. What do you think of it?“
“I say that there are still four of u s ;
that is double the number of those wait
ing for us down there, and we are suffi
cient to master them.“
“Don’t be too sure, my good friend,
Zaragate,“ the capataz said with a grin;
“they are men made of iron, who must
be killed twice over before they fall.”
The Tigrero and his companions had
heard Shots and seen the peons bite the
“There is Valentine,” said the French
“ I believe so,” Don Martial replied.
“Shall we charge?“
And digging in their spurs, they dashed
at the peons.
Valentine and his two comrades, Bel-
humeur and Black Elk (for the French
man was not mistaken, it was really the
hunter coming up, whom the Canadian
had warned) fell on the peons simulta
neously with Don Martial and his com
A terrible, silent and obstinate strug
gle went on for some minutes between
these 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
vigorous resistance; the two men were
entwined like serpents, and, in their ef
forts to dismount each other, at last both
loll, and rolled beneath the feet of the
combatants who, without thinking of
them, or perceiving their fall, continued
to attack each other furiously.
The Zaragate, some years younger than
Valentine, and possessed of his full bod
ily strength, while urged on by the love
of a rich reward, made superhuman ef
forts to master his opponent and plunge
his navaja into his heart.
Still Valentine felt that his strength
was becoming exhausted, the unexpected
resistance he met with from an enemy ap
parently so little worthy of him exasper
ated him and made him lose his coolness.
Collecting all his remaining vigor to at
tempt a final and decisive effort, he suc
ceeded in getting his enemy once again
under him, and pinned him down; but,
nt the same moment, Valentine uttered a
cry of pain and rolled on the ground—
a horse’s kick had broken his left arm.
The Zaragate sprang up with a tigej’s
bound, and bursting into a yell of de
light, placed his knee on his enemy’s
chest, ot the same time as he prepared
to bury his navaja in his heaVt. Valen-
titie felt that he was lost, and did not at
tempt to avoid the death that threatened
“All, a h !” the Zaragate said, with a
ferocious grin. “ I hold my vengeance
a : length, accursed Trail-hunter.”
He did not complete the sentence;
suddenly seized by his long hair, while
a knee, thrust between his shoulders, forc
ed him to bend back, he saw, as in a
horrible dream, a ferocious face grinning
above his iend. With a fearful groan he
rolled on the ground; a knife had been
buried in his heart, while his scalp,
which was suddenly removed, left his
denuded skull to inundate with blood the
Curumilla raised in his arms the body
of his friend, whose life he had just saved
once again, and bore it to the side of the
road. Valentine had fainted.
The chief, so soon as he saw his friends
charge the peons, left his ambush, and
while careful to remain behind them, fol
lowed to the battlefield. He had watched
eagerly the long struggle between the
hunter and the Zaragate; trying vainly
to assist his friend, but never able to
succeed. The two enemies were so en
twined, their movements were so rapid,
and they changed their positions so sud
denly that the chief was afraid lest he
might wound his friend in attempting to
help him. Finally the Arancano bounded
like a wild beast on the Mexican, and
without hesitation scalped and stabbed
him with the agility characteristic of
the redskins, and which he himself pos
sessed in so high a degree.
Almost at the same moment the horse
men also finished their fight. The peons
had offered a vigorous resistance, but
being badly supported by the capatax.

skirmish by Ikra Martial, and seeing the
Zaragate dead and three of their friends
dismounted and incapable of coming to
their assistance, they gave in.
