THE ROBBER CHIEF.
In ono of tho fertile Tales at the base oJ
ths Sierra Madro mountains tho famou Al
cade do Mcndana controlled tho affairs of
the region. Amouc the inhabitants of the
hills, tho bandits and their lawless friends,
this same man was known as 'Don Carlos,
the Ilobbor chief," but so well was his secret
kept by those acquainted with it that no
whisper of his unholy connection ever pol
luted tho air of tho valley over which ho
Aa Don Carlos ho conducted his outrages
with all tho courtesy of a robber of romance,
being liberal to tho poor with what he
gained from the rich, and, while often
cruel, be would sometlmoj exhibit such
seeming goncrosity toward his victims, or
thoso in his power, that his virtues were
loudly sung by the easy-going multitude,
while his wrong-doing was only whispered,
and most charitably glossed over.
From Sonora, on a chilly evening in Jan
nary, IS , the coach which traveled the old
road to ChUhuahua was well filled with pas
sengers, all of whom, by display of arms as
well as by personal appearance, seemed to be
possessed of property worth defending;
and weapons were necessary, for the road to
be traversed was notoriously infested by
In the party were a gentle, timid old lady
and her black-ojoJ, vivacious, beautiful
niece, Mario do Navarro, sole child and
orphan of the noblo Count do Navarre, who,
dying, left his motherless child to the care
of her dead mother's sister: and with this
aunt the charming girl had passed fcer early
life in Sonora.
Good as licautifuh ondawith all the frank
ness of innocence, Marie entered into unre
strained conversation with her follow travel
ers. Natural!-, tho talk settled into ex
periences of each, or their friends, in con
nection with robbers and robberies, and this
continued long, dread inducing wakefulness.
ISut at last fatigue and slumber conquered,
and all wore sound asleep, despite tho terri
ble jolting of the clumsy vehicle
A very sudden pull up of tho hordes and
halt of the coach betokened that "something
had happened", and in an instant every one
was wide awake awake to see, surrounding
and peering in on every side, Cerce, dark,
wild, and wicked faces, made more hideous
by the dun dicker of tho rude torches ths
The passengers wcro made to dismount
and stand in a row, whilo the brigands
hastily pillagoJ them of their valuables.
Somewhat apart from the others wore
Mario and her aunt They were tho last to
be searched, and tho cool-headed girl occu
pied tho time in keen observations. Through
t'uo darkness she could discern tho figure of
a man on horseback, evidently in command,
though ho took no part in tho active plun
dering. When a rude desperado approached Marie
and her aunt, and the light of tho torch fell
full upon her beautiful, pole and determined
face, she placed herself before her aged rela
tive: "I have no wealth worth your taking;
we do not carry our treasures with us. My
aunt, neither has anything of value, and the
first of you that lays a hand upon her or
me." tho rounded arm flow out fiorccly,
and in the little hand was firmly grasped a
keen, long stilletto.
Staggered for a moment by this most un
expected opposition, the ruffian started back,
with a ha.t oath and half laugh, and was
about to grasp tus girl when, from the
gloom, was heard a voice:
"The sonoros aro not to bo molested. We
harm no children or wornon."
With the laugh turned to angry maledic
tion the robber moved away; then, under
cover of guns, the despoiled travelers wore
allowed to resume their places in the coach
and the driver was ordered to proceed on
The immunity granted Marie and her aunt
evidently displeased their idundered com
panions, and this dissatisfaction was openly
vented upon tho two ladies.
"I should certainly havo begged tho
senorita to act as my treasurer," taid one of
tho men, "had I known that, she would be
"So would I," groaned and growled oacli
of tho others.
Marie's eyes flashod. "Had you the spirit
of a girl of 19, sonors, sho said, "you would
not ha e given up your arms, but would
have ned them to savo your property and
protect tno womon from insult." Silenco
reigned in tho coach oftr that, and at tho
next station two passengers left the vehicle,
but were replaced by two other men; ono
with a coarse, bad face, in strong contrast
with his liandsomo companion, a man some
what past his primo and showing marks of
care, but w ith kindly cyei, a courteous man
ner, and roost fascinating smile. Ho sat
near tho door, and evidently knew tho
country by heart, pointing out overy place
of interest as they jiassoJ it. Through him
coni orsation was ro vie wed, and the whob
story of tho robbery rehearsed, which tale
seemed to a muss tho rough stranger beyond
measure. Marie thought the voico of tho
gentle newcomer somewhat familiar, and
like that sho hoard coming from tho dark
ness, but the fearless glance, the honest eyes,
tho charming manners of the man disarmed
all suspicion; his attentions showed that ho
admired her, and wcro so marked that this
fact was soon apparent to all the company.
In two hours the coach was again stopped,
and a robber prevented his gun and face at
tho door, requesting the iasscngers to alight.
Tho pleasant stranger near tho door just
touched the new visitor on tho wrist; the
robber met his eyes, changed color, stam
mered, and begged iiardon.
"Shall you uunt to see my passport I" in
quired tho stranger.
"Pardon, senor," replied the robber,
Tho coach proceeded without further an
noy anc-o. "It ttouW havo been fortunate
had we l.aJ J ou with us when we were at
tacked before," said tho man who had
growled at Mane.
"I w ish I had ben there,"1 answered the
polite stranger, with a smile, while hii rough
companion roared with rudo laughter, while
all the rest looked on amared.
By gradual approaches the stranger and
Mario became unintentionally communlca
the, and he discovered that sho was the
niece of tho rich banker de Xavarra in ChU
huahua. "De Naxarra," n cried, "why, he is an old
friend of mine! Will you present him this,
my card! 1 aui going to Chilhuahua myself
and will certainly renew my acquaintance;
with him. '
Marie promised, and performed in her se
cluded life she bad never heard of Den Carlo
Me dans and when she gave thi card and
message to her uncle, she thought he turn-d
pale. But it might only havo been her
It was weeks before Carlos redeemed hj
promise, but be never forgot, and at last he
came, much to the amazement and discom
fort of De Navarro,
"Ahl" cried Don Carlos, "and so ma meet
after these manv years! Von turned
traitor and tried to have us all hung but
yourself. Well, we all live, you see, and in
tend to do ta"
"Hush!" cried De Kavarra, "what I did
was to save my own neck. Do not whisper
of the past to my niece."
"Do not mention your niece's name in the
I breath with that of our villainous
She Is too pure and sweet to be spokec
of by our lips; but yet, L blood-stained,
guilty wretch though I am, I love her. Let
mo try to win her lor my wife, De Navarra
and I swear I will forget your trcacberr
and hide your past, as my own, from her,
nor shall sho suspect or know my pursuits
whilo I live."
Do Xavarra had for a long time previous
been a member, sometimes active, and at
others plotting, in Don Carlos' reckless,
murderous band. Once he was detected,
and only by bribes and treachery to his
companions had he escaped death, sines
which time be had striven to lead an honest
life. He dearly loved his niece, and it
lacked his Laart-strings to give her to hk
former master, but by so doing only ooald

and lived most happily there for years.
Three lovely children wen bom to them,
and the devotion of the husband to his wife
never faltered; for her sake be bad given up
all personal share in the plnnderof the band,
living on his home estate, and directing his
henchmen by meninges or at Interviews.
Marie often wondered at the wild men
who came, asking always for Don Carlos
Rodrigo, a personage of whom her husband
would tall her nothing, but of whose plans
be always seemed to be f ully informed.
After several years, when the authorities
became active in bunting tho bandits, an
action took place between the soldiers and
the robbers. So many of the latter were
made prisoners and executed, that De Men
dana felt in honor bound to expose himself
with the remainder. So telling Marie that
he was called to aid Don Rodrigo, and might
be long absent, he tenderly bade farewell to
her and his children.
Marie for weeks heard nothing of her hus
band. Her aunt had come to visit her, and
when the old lady asked where Don Carlos
was, Marie Innocently replied: "He has
gone to assist, in some way, that great
friend of his, the mysterious Hon Rodrigo,
to whom he is so devoted." The aunt
stared. "Who did you sayl Don Rodrigol

and as days wore on and no news came
from Carlos, she was stricken with serious

but his face was now ghastly white as well
He was dusty and weary with hard riding,

Marie instinctively felt a horror of the man,
and drew back as he approached her. He

weary smile; "the widow of Don Rodrigo,

Mario's heart beat fast and sho could not
control her agitation. A great dread filled
her very soul with foreboding, but sho re
mained little time in suspense.
A melancholy procession wound into the
court-yard of the palace; around a rough
bier were torrib'.o men with Caring torches,
and on the bier lay a Lody covered with a
cloak. The desperate-looking men laid their
burden with tender care in the great hall
of tho house and withdrew to a respectful
distance, while Marie advanced to remove
the cloak to gaze for the only time on the
face of the mysterious Don Rodrigo
She knelt, lifted the covering and fell
with a shriek upon the body.
The hall echoed with her heart-rending
cries and all rushed forward to assist and

cleanliness which should distinguish such

How ignorant, too, women seem to be
about dyeing. Tho aniline dyes, soluble by

Violet; red, bright blues and yellows should

happy contrast to these mistakes in dress

A LIFE WHICH PRESENTS BUT FEW
Ko Great Manual labor and Still
Mental Exertion Camp and Cooklag
Utensils Freparlns; the Modest Even
lns Meal A Might's lodging.
If the ancients deemed this life one of the
happiest that man could engage In merely
becauso it involves no great ""' labor
and still less mental, 1 most heartily agree
with them, for I can imagine no life, unless
it be that of tho professional Idler, that re
quires less of these ingredients than that of
the sheep-herder. There may be one or two
months in the year when be Is compelled to
make a pretenso of exerting himself, but
during the remaining ten months his life
work is to wander lazily up and down
through the woods, kicking small stones out
of his pathway and whistling till the very
trees around him groan. His only care Is ta
see that tho flock docs not wander too fa!
from tho camp and that no wayward sheea
strays from tho main band. It gives him
no particular troublo to keep them at a
reasonable distance from the place of ren
dezvous, and should any black sheep become
so perverse as to attempt to sever all con
nections with his fellows, and to wander out
into tho wickod world all by himself, a mere
"shoo, there," and a stono well aimed qulcklj
strikes terror into his rebellious heart, and
causes him to seek once moro the society
from which ho sought to separate himself,
Thii, then, constitutes for the greater part
of tho year what tho sheep-herder is pleased
to call his daily labor. But his labors do
not cease with the day, for when darkness
approaches be returns, not to the "bosom of
his family," but to bis lonely and uninvit
ing camp, wnere he prepares his frugal
meals, and indulges in the "balmy," to use a
favorite expression of tho poetic Mr.
The camp usually consists of a small tent,
In which aro stored the scanty provisions
and the necessary cooking utcnsill before
the tent a few sapling pino trees, it they can
bo readily obtained, are arranged in such a
manner as to form a small inclosure, on I
within this inclosure a blazing fire of pine
logs, which answers tho triple purpose of
heating stove, cooking stove, and lamp, is
kept burning during tho lonely hours of the
long winter evenings, and its lambent flames
light up the forest far and wide with a sort
of spectral glow.
A MEAL AND MOUT'S LODOI.tO.
Upon .reaching camp the herder's first
care is to prepare his modest evening meal
With this and in view he melts a quantity
of snow in a tin kettle, thus obtaining suili
clent water with which to make bread and
coffee. The bread is baked in a sort of iron
oven, ha ing a closely fitting iron cover.
This oven, in which the dough is placed, is
covered with glowing coals, and in a very
few moments a well baked, but extremely
untempting loaf, is turned out The bread
and coffee being in readiness, jthe would-bo
cook applies himself to the cooking of meat,
which is, except on state occasions, mutton
The meat is cut into large pieces and placed
in a frying pan over the coals, whore it is
allowed to remain until the external portions
at least havo become browned, it matters
very little whether the Interior be cooked or
To such a repast, with the possible addi
tion of a few potatoes, onions, or beans, the
sheep herder diligently applies himself each
morning anil ovening of the greater part of
the year. His table is the bare ground, his
table cloth such an article is utterly un
known. Ho usually eats from tho dishes in
which the food has been cooked, and, though
knives and forks may always be found in
tho camp, ho prefers his fingers, acting on
the principle that "fingers were made
before forks." After this barbarous rite is
concluded, he is at liberty to indulge in bis
favorite pastimo of whistling, or, if he be a
Mexican, in brushing his teeth with aa in
strument which ho calls a "harp," but which
in .musical circles is generally designated as
the " villainous mouth-organ," until he feels
disposed to retire. This is a very simple
operation, and does not require much prepa
ration. Two or three sheep skins that serve
as mattress are placed on the ground, and a
few blankets aro placed over these, which
with a coat for a pillow, make up the royal
couch. Diverting himself of no other articles
of apparel except his coat and booU, the
herder wrans himself In his blankets, and Is
all prepared to receive the god of sleep
whenever his majesty may be pleased to ap
pear. He sleeps in blissful unconsciousness
of all around until the newborn light tells
him that another day has begun. Then,
casting his blankets aside and drawing on
his boots and coat, be immediately proceeds
to prepare breakfast, which is essentially
the same as the meal of the previous even
ing. This being finished, he drives his
bleating flocks to their pasture, and per
forms tho same round of duties as on the
preceding day. M. J. Rlordan in Chicago
Kffect of Impurities In Metals.
In a recent lecture Mr. W. C Roberts
Austen, chemist of the British mint, re
marked upon the wonderful effects often
produced upon metals by minute quantities
of impurities. Slight impurities in metallic
copper would render ocean telegraphy im
possible. When purified, tin loses iti well
known "cry," or noise made when bent A
trace of arsenic Increases the fluidity of
lead so that it will roll itself into small shot
in sliding down an inclined plane.
Standard gold melts at about 10CO degrees,
but if a fifth of 1 percent of silica be added
it will soften in a candle-flame. A trace of
lead added to gold forms an alloy much
dreaded at the mint, the breaking strain of
the gold being reduced from twenty tons to
five. Some metals havo a remarkable power
of taking up gases, palladium being capable
of absorbing MX) times its volume of hydro
gen and giving it out again when heated. A
remarkable discovery is that an alloy of
rhodium and lead will absorb nitrogen and
oxygen, and when heated give them off with
explosive violence as gun-cotton dosa
