CHAPTKU VII. (Continued.)
The president looked round the assem

lence, stretched out Ms arm toward the
Xfeneral, who stood cold and passionless
before him, and, after danlng at him a

re about to hear. In the fint place. In
order to reassure you and restore your
freedom of mind, learn that you have
not fallen Into the hands of InJlani
thirsting for your blood, or of pirates who
intend to plunder you first and assas
tlnate you afterward. When you hare
sscted as Impartial witnesses you will be
nt liberty to continue your Journey, with
out the forfeiture of a slnrle article. The
tnen seated on my right and left, although
roasted, are brave and honest hut.er.
The day may ierhapa arrive when you
will know thun; but reason, who? Im-
irtanc you will speedily recognise, com
te them to remain unknown for the pres
ent." One of the travelers belonging to the
swoad caravan stepped forward; he was
young man, with elegant and noble
features, tall and well built.
"Csballero," he answered. In a dis
tinct voice, "I thank you. In the name of
tuy companions, for the reassuring words
Jron have spoken. I know haw Iturtlsra-
ld are the laws of the desert; but per
mit me to ask you one question."
"Speak, cabal lero."
"Is It an act of vengeance or Justice
jou are about to carry out?"
"Enough of this." the general said
haughtily; "and If you are. as you assert,
an honorable man. show me your fsce,"
"No. Doo SebastUn." said the presl
dent, "for In that case the tame would
not be even between us."
The general attempted to smile, but In
pile of himself the smile died away on
hla llpa. The president looked round
with Hashing eyes and began speaking
again In a sharp, cutting voice.
"Now, listen, senorrs." be ssld. "and

xreatest noblemen of Mexico. Ills for

forms the basis of bis character, has al

tiora." "Oht" tbe audience said Involuntarily,
aa they Instinctively recoiled In horror.
"It this man Is the ex-governor of
Sonora," tbe hunter wbo had already
apoken said. In disgust, "bt Is a wild
beast, whom his ferocity has placed be
yond the pale of society, and It Is tbe
duty of honest men to destroy him."

CHAPTKK VI II.
"Nonsense," aald the general, shrug
ring his shoulders with a contemptuous
sunlle. "I know now wbo you are; your
hatred of me has uncouscously discov
ered you. Itemove that veil which Is no
longer of any use. You are tbe French
hunter whom I have constantly met In
toy path to Impede my projects, or over
throw my plana."
"Add," the hunter Interrupted, "and
whom you will ever meet, llrothers," be
added, turning to his assistants, "my mask
eJone must fall; retain yours, for it is
Important for my plans of vengeance that
jou should remain unknown."
Tbe four men bowed tbelr assent and
tbe hunter threw away the crape that cov
ered bis features.
"Valentine GullJolsl" tbe general ex
claimed ; "I was sure of it"
"Listen then," tbe bunter coldly con
tinued ; "when my unhappy friend fell at
Cuaymas, in iny paroxysm of grief I
allow that I Intended to kill you ; but re
flection icon came, and I saw that it
would be better to let you live. Thanks
to me, one week after tbe Mexican govern
ment, not satisfied with disavowing your
conduct, deprived you of your command

u tie moUtm of their conduct."
"Ah. ah," the general said. "It was to
jou, then, that I Owe my recall?"
"Yes, general, to me alone."
"I am delighted to hear It."
"You remained, then, In Sonora. with
out power or lutluence, hated and despis
ed by all, and marked on your forehead
with that Indelible brand which was Im.
printed on Cain, the first murderer; but

thanks to jour colossal fortune and the
Influence It would necessarily give you.
you could carry on jour ambitious pro
jects. Your preparations were soon made
listen attentively, general, for I assure
you that I have reached the most Inter
esting part of my narrative.
"As you fancied, for certain reasons
wclca It Is unnecessary to remind von
of, that your enemies might try to lay
rome ambush for you, you thought It
necessary to take the following preoau
tltns, the Inutility of some of which I
presume that you have recogulied. While,
for the purpose of deceiving your enemies,
you started In disguise, and only accom
panied by a few men. for California. In
order to return to Mexico across the
Hocky mountains; while you gave ques
tioners tbe fullest details of the msd vnn
Intended to follow, with your men your
real object was different. The man In
whom you placed your confidence, Hon
isldro Vargas, wbo bad known you when
a child, and whom you bad converted
Into your tool, took the shortest, and.
consequently, most direct route for the
capital, having with him not only twelve
mules loaded with gold and sliver, the
run oi your plunder during the period
of your command, but a more precious ar-
iicie sun. me body of your unhappy
daughter, which you bad embalmed, and
which the captain had orders to Inter
with your ancestors at your Hacienda del
I'almar. Your object In acting thus was
not only to divert attention from your
Ill-gotten riches, but also to attract your
enemies after yourself, t'nfortunately,
I am an old bunter so difficult to deceive
that my comrades gave me long ago the
glorious title of the Trail-hunter, and
oence, i alone was not deceived."
"Still your presence here glvjs a strik
ing denlsl to tbe assertion," tbe general
"You think so, senor. That proves you
sre not thoroughly acquainted with me;
but ltlnee. I tope that you will, ere
long, appreciate me better. Again, you
have not reflected on the time that has
elapsed since your departure from Her
moslllo." "What do you meanr the general ask-
w. who a sodden start of apprehension.

resolved to settle matters first with tbe

with greater Interest than be would have
liked to display.
"My men were so Imprudent," the
hunter continued, "as to leave the captain
the means of defending himself. Tbe re
sult was that he died, bravely fighting to
save tbe gold you had Intrusted to him,
and tbe coffin containing your daughter's
"Well, and I presume vou nlnndered
tbe caravan, and carried off the gold and
silver?" he asked, contemptuously.
"So, most probably, you would have
acted under the circumstances, Don He
bastian," tbe bunter answered, "but I
thought It my duty to act differently.
What could you expect? I, a coarse, un
educated bunter, do not know how to
plunder, for I did not learn it when I had
the honor to serve my country. This Is
what I did; so soon as tbe caotaln ami
tbe peons be commanded were killed for
tbe poor devils, I must do them the Jus
tice to say, offered a desperate resistance
I myself, you understand, friend, I my
self conveyed the money to your Hacienda
del I'almar, where it now remains In safety,"
The general breathed again, and smiled
itcnlcally. "Instead of blaming you,
seiior," be said, "I, on tbe contrary, owe
jou thanks for this chivalrous conduct."
"i not be in such a hurry to thank
me," the hunter answered; "I have not
told you all. Captain Don Isldro Vargas
not only escorted tho money, but there
was also a coffin. Well, general, why do
you sot ask me wbat has become of that
An electric shock ran through the audi
ence on bearing the Ironical question so
coldly asked by tbe bunter.
"What!" Don Sebastian exclaimed.
"The assassin can have no claim to the
body of his victim, and you are morally
your daughter's murderer, I have robbed
you of Ibis lody, which must rest by tbe
side of him for whom she died."
There was a moment's silence, Tbe
gtneral's face, hitherto pale, assumed a
greenish hue. At length he yelled In a
hoarse and hissing voice:
"It Is not true; you have not done
Ibis. You cannot bave dared to rob a
father of his child's body."
"I have dose It, I tell you," ths hunter
said coldly, "l have lakrn possession '
tne body of your lctlm, nud mow you
ctmcrataiid mo; net or shall jou know
vhero this ioor body rests. Itut this Is
on'- the beginning of my tongeaiice. What
I with to kill In ton Is the soul and not
the body, and now Ix-gonc, and remember
that j-ou will Unci me In your path every
where, and ever."
"One Inst word." the cenernl rirlslm.
ed. affected by the deepest despair, "re
store me my daughters body; she was tbe
utily Im mn ii creature I eer loved."
The hunter regarded him for a moment
with an undeniable expression, and then
in a Harsh and coldly mocking voice,
Then, turning away, he re-entered the
gtotto, followed by his assistants.
Dou Sebastlsn, who was the more over
whelmed by the last blow because It was
unexpected, stood for a moment tike a
man struck by lightning. At Isst a heart
rending m)i burst from his bosom, two
uurulug tears sprang from his eyes and
he rolled like a corpse on the ground.
In the meanwhile the Jester had or
dered the peons to saddle the horses and
load the mules. The general was tdsced
by two servants on a horse, without ap
pearing to notice what was done to him,
and a few moments later the caravan left
the fort of the l hlchlmrqurs.
When the Mexicans had disappeared la
the windings of the road Valentine emerg
ed from the grotto, and walked courteous
ly up to the huntrrs.
"Forgive me." he said, "not tbe delsv.
but the Involuntary alarm I caused you;
but I was compelled to act as I did. You
are going to Metlro, where I shall soon
Im myself, and It Is possible that I may
require your testimony some day "
"A testimony whkh will not be re
fused," tbe first bunter gracefully answer
"What!" tbe hunter exclaimed In
amaieaient. "are you French?"
"Yes, and all my companions. We
bave come from Ssn Francisco, where,
thanks to Providence, we amassed a for
tune, which we but to double In ths
Mexican capital. My name Is Antolne
Hauler, and these are iny brothers. Ill-
ward and Augustus; the two Isdles who
accompany us are my mother and sister."
Jt.e hunter pressed tbe hand his coun
tryman offered him.
Then," he said, "I will not let you
go alone! Tbne mountains are Infested
by dangerous bandits but with my pro
tection you can pns anywhere."
"I heartily accept the offer; but why
do you not come with as to Mexico?"
'That Is Impossible for the present."
Two hours later the Fort of tbe CM-
chlmei)ues bad returned to Its usual soli
tude; white men and Indians had abn
doaed it forever.

Wis will now leap over about two
months, and Invite the reader to accom
pany us to the heart of Mexico, to the
capital. Half-past nine was striking by
the cathedral clock at the moment when
a dull sound resembling the rustling of
rents shaken by the wind was audible on
the gigantic highway Joining the cltv to
mainland. This sound soon become more
distinct, ami changed into I lie trampling

damp air and the ground, softened by a
lengthened rain. A black mass emerged

In thick cloaks stood out distinctly In ths
These horsemen seemed to bave made a

roofed house through' whose dirty panes a
doubtful tight Issued, which showed that
the Inhabitants were still awake.
The horsemen sIoiiihsI before this
bouse, which was an Inn. and without
dismounting one of I hem gave tbe door
two or three kicks and called tbe host In
a loud, sharp voice. The latter was In
no hurry to answer, and would have prob
ably left the strangers for some time In
tht cold If the man who had kicked, prob
ably tired of waiting, bad not thought of
an expeditious means of obtaining an an
swer. "Ah!" he shouted, as be drew a pistol
from his bolster and cocked It. "since this
dog Is resolm! not to open, I will send a
buurt ttirougli his window."
This menace had scarce been uttered
ere the door opened as If by enchantment
and the landlord appeared on the thresh
old. "Ilelleve me, senor, that If I had known
what a distinguished raballero did me tbe
honor of stopping before my humble
dwelling, I should have hastened to open,"
"A truce to such Impertinent remarks,
and open tbe door."
A glance was sufficient for the travelers
to understand the nlace to which srrl.

play any of the disgust with which the
sight or this cut-throat den Inspired them.
They seated themselves as comfortably
as they could at a table, and the one who
Had hitherto addressed mine host went
'Tx)ok here, we are dying of hunger,
patron; could you not serve us up a
morsel of food?"
"Hum!" said the host, with an em
barrassed air, "it is very late, caballero,
and I don't believe I have even a maize
tortilla left In tbo whole house."
"Nonsense." the traveler renlled "I
know all about It, so let us deal frankly
wiui escu owier; give me some supper,
for I am hungry, and we will not squab

"Even If you paid me a piastre for ev

supply you with two," the landlord re
plied, with Increased constraint.
