"Have you learned any Important new
since our last Interview?"
"Only one thins, but I think It Is ot
the utmost gravity for you."
"Speak, niy friend."
"What I tare to tell you I short and
gloomy, senorv. The general, after a
secret conversation with hi man ot busi
ness, ordered tat- to carry a letter to the
Convent of the llernardlnes."
"To the convent?" Don Martial ex
claimed. "Silence," mU Valentine. "lo you
know the contenta ot thl letter!"
MIona Anita par It me to read. The
general Inform the abbess that he la
resolved to finish the matter: that wheth
er hi ward be mad or not, he mean to
tnarry her, and that at sunrlso on the
day after to-morrow, a prleet sent by
him will present himself at the convent
to arrange the ceremony."
"What la to be done!" the Tlgrero ex
"Silence." Valentine repeated. "la that
"No; the general add that be reo.uet
the abbe. to prepare the young lady
for thLi union, and that he will himself
call at the tonvent to-morrow, In order
to explain more fully hla Inexorable
"Very good, my friend. I thank you
for thla precloui Information ; It I ot the
utmost Importance that the general should
be prevented from going to the convent
before three o'clock."
"Do not be uneasy, my dear Valentine ;
the general shall not go to the convent
before the boor you Indicate."
"I count on your promise, my friend;
and now good-by."
He offered him hla hand, which the
capatai pressed forcibly.
"My friends," Valentine then aald. "we
have now arrived at the moment for the
final itruggte which we have so lone
been preparing. We must not let our
wives be led away by hatred, but act like
judge, not as men who are avenging
themselrea. Illood demands blood. It Is
true, according to the law ot the desert,
but remember, however culpable the man
whom we have condemned may be, his
death would be an Indelible spot, a brand
of Infamy which would sully our honor."
"lint thla monster," the Tlgrero ex
claimed, "la beyond the pale ot human
ity." "He may re-enter It to repent."
"Are we priests then, to practice for
getfulnes ot huulta?" Don Martial ask
ed with a fiendish grin.
"No, my friend; there are men In the
grand and sublime acceptance of the
term; men who have often been faulty
themselves, and who, rendered better by
the life of struggling they have led, and
tbe grief which has frequently bowed
them beneath Its Iron yoke, Inflict a
chastisement, but despise vengeance,
which they leave to weak and pusillani
mous minds. Who of you,' my friends,
would dare to say that be has suffered
more thtn 17 To him alone will I con
cede the right of Imposing his will on
me, and what he bids me do I will do."
"forgive me, my friend," tbe Tlgrero
answered, "you are ever good, ever great.
Heaven, lu imposing on you a heavy
task, endowed you at tbe same time with
en energetic soul, and a heart which
seems to expand In your bosom under the
blast of adversity, Instead of withering"
"Through my own sufferings, I can
understand what yours are. 1, too, often
feel my heart bound with wrath and In
dignation; for, believe me, my friend, I
have a constant struggle to wage against
myself, not to let myself be led away
to make a vengeance of what must only
be a punishment. Hut enough on this
bead; time press, aud we must arrange
our plana so a not to be foiled by our
enemies. I went to-day to tbe 1'alace,
where I bad a secret conversation with
tbe I'rorldent ot the Republic, whom, a
you are aware, I have known for many
years, and who honors me with a friend
ship of which I am far from believing
myself worthy. At the end of our Inter
view he handed me a paper, a species of
blank signature, by the aid ot which I
can do what I think advisable for tbe
success of our plana."
"Did you obtain such a paper?"
"I have It In my pocket Now, listen
to me. You will go at sunrise to-morrow
to the bouse ot Don Antonio llallier; he
will be. Informed of your coming, and you
will follow his Instructions."
"Do not be anxious about my move
ment, good friend, and only think of
your own business, for, I repeat) the de
cisive moment Is approaching, Tliu day
after to-morrow begins the feast of the
anniversary of Mexican Independence;
that la to aay, on that day we shall do
1)0 1 tie with our enemy, and meet him
face to face; and the combat will be a
rude one, for this man boa a will ot
Iron, and a terrible energy, We shall be
able to conquer blm, but not to subdue
him, and if we do not take care be will
slip through our bauds like a serpent;
hence our personal affair must be fin
ished to-morrow. Though apparently ab
sent, I shall be really near you, that Is
to aay, I will help you with all my pow
er, I trust that you have beard and
understood me, mj friend?"
"Ye. Don Valentine."
"And you will act a I recommend?"
"I promise It."
"Reflect that you are perhaps ricking
Us U of your future happiness."
"I will not forget your recommenda
tion, I swear to you; I ant risking too
great n stake In this game, which mint
decide my future life, to let myself lie
Induced to commit any act of violence."
"(rood; 1 am happy to hear you speak
thus; but have confidence, my friend, 1
feel certain that we shall succeed."
"May heaven hear you P
"It alnays hears those who appeal to
It with a pure heart and a lively faith.
Hope, I tell you; and now, my dear IVm
Martial, permit me to say n few words
to our worthy friend, llelhumeur."
"I will withdraw."
"What for? have I any secrets from
you? You can hear what I am going to
say to him."
"You have nothing to say to me, Val
entine," the hunter said, with a shako of
his head, "nothing but what I know al
ready; I have no other Interest In what
Is about to take place beyond the deep
friendship that attached me to the count
and now to you. You think that the
recollection 1 have preserved of our un
happy friend cannot be sufficiently en
graven on my heart for me to risk my
life at your side In minting hlra; but
you are mistaken, Valentine, that's all.
I will not abandon you In the hour of
combat; I will remain at your side even
should you order me to leave you, 1 tell
you that I swear, and have taken an
oath to that effect, to make a shield of
my body to protect you. It It should be
necessary. Now, give me your hand, and
suppose we sty no more about It?"
Valentine remained silent for a mo
ment; a scalding tear ran down hla
bronted cheek, and he took the hand of
the honest, simple-minded Canadian, and
merely uttered the words I
"Thank you, I accept."
They then rose and returned to their
carriage, after Valentine had warned his
faithful bodyguard, Curumllla, by a sig
nal that be could leave his biding place,
as the Interview was over. A quarter of
an hour later the three gentlemen reach
ed the house In the Calls de Tacuba,
where Curumllla was already awaiting

"You are welcome," the Frenchman
said cordially, on perceiving Don Mar

Although the Tlgrero did not entirely
understand what the banker said to him,
he considered It unnecessary to show It,
and hence bowed without answering.
"All Is settled, then," M. Ilaller con
tinued, addressing hi brother; "get
everything ready, for we shall probably
arrive before mid-day that Is to say,
In time for lunch."
"Your country house I not far from
the city?" the Tlgrero asked, for the
ake of saying something.
"Hardly fire miles; It Is at Ht. Angel;
but In an excellent position for defense,
In event of attack. You are aware that
St. Angel Is built on the side of an ex
tinct volcano, and surrounded by lava and
spongy scoria, which render an ap
proach Tery difficult."
"I must confess mj Ignorance of the
"In a country like this, where the
government I bound to think of It own

During this conversation the peon
had put tbe horse in a close carriage,

"What J" Don Martial replied, "are
we going to drive?"
"Do you think I would venture to
go to the convent on horseback?"
"Hut thl carriage will betray you."
"I admit It; but no one will know
whom It contain when tbe shutter are
drawn up, which I shall be careful to
do before leaving the house. Come, get
The Tlgrero placed himself by the
FrsachiBaa's slds; tba latter culled up
tbe shutters, .nod started at a gallop In
n direction diametrically opposed (o that
which It should have followed. In order
to reach the convent.
"Where nre we going?" the Tlgrero
To the Convent ot the IJernsrdtnc."
"I faucy we ure not going tin right
M'hat Is invisible, but, at any rate, It
Is the safest."
"t humbly confess that I cannot under
stand It nt all."
M. Italller began laughing.
"My good fellow," he replied, "you will
understand at the right time, so tie may.
You heed only know that In acting as I
ii m now doing I am carrying out to the
letter the luitructlona of Valentine, my
friend and yours."
"I have no repugnance to obey you,
Seuor lVn Antonio," the Tlgrero an
swered. "The confidence our common
friend place In jou I a sure guarantee
to mo ot your Intentions. Hence dispose,
of me as you think proper, without fear
ing the sllahtest objection on my part."
"That Is tho way to talk." the banker
atld. with a laugh. "Now, to begin, my
dear senor, you will do me the pleasure
of chauglug your dre, for the one you
wear Is slightly loo worldly tor tne place
to which Me are going.
"Change mv drel" the Tlgrero ex
claimed. "You ought to have told m so

took from one of the conch pockets a
Franclenn' gown, while from the other
he drew a pair of sandal and a cord.
"Have you not worn this dress beforel"
"Well, you are going to put It on
again, and for the following reason :
At the couveut people bellsve (or pretend
to believe, which come to the same
thing) that you are a Kranelscan monk.
For the sake, then, of the persons who
are not In the. secret. It Is nceuy that
I should be accompanied by a monk, and
more, that they may be aide. If required,
to take their oaths to the fact."
"1 obey you. Hut will not your coach
man be surprised at.seelng a Franciscan
emerge from the carriage Into which he
showed a cabellero?"
"My coachman? Tardon me, but I do
not think 70U looked at him."
"Indeed I did not. All these Indians
are alike and equally hideous."
"That Is true; however, look at him."
Don Martial bent forward and slightly
lowered the shutter.

"Caspltal My permission? On the

what are they?"
"You shall see. A machete, a knife,
and a air of pistols,"
"That I first rate. If necessary, I
shall bo able to find you a rllle."
While talking thus, the-Tlgrero bad
changed hi dress.
"There," the Frenchman continued,
"you are a perfect monk."
"No; I want something more, Some
thing which Is even Indispensable."
"That -part of my costume I hardly
know how we shall obtain."
"Man of little faith!" the Frenehman
satd with a smile, "see, and be con
founded." While speaking thu he raised the
front cushion, opened the liox It covered
and pulled out the hat of a monk ot St.
Francis, which he gave the Tlgrero.
"And now do you want anything else?"
"indeed, no. Why, your carriage I a
perfect locomotive shop."
The Frenchwau opened the door, for
the carriage had atopped In front of the
Convent of the llernardlne. Two or
three Ill-looking fellow were prowling
about: and. In spite of their affected In
difference, It was easy to rocognlie them
for spies. The Frenchman and his com
lnlon were not deceived. They got out
with an Indifference ns well assumed a
that of the spivs, and approached the
door slowly, which opened at their first
knock, and closed again behind them with
a speed that proved the slight confidence

Tho trouble Is that tho Wlllnmotlo

with llltlo or no effort mode to give

Had moro clover and alfalfa been
