B The Game Begins.
B Teresa do la Gucrra's face went red
M and white, nnd Torre, seeing, smiled.
B Slto heard in tho words only an In
B suit to her beloved papa grande, know
m Ing as she so well knew that of all
m men tlio old Spaniard hated his arro-
m gant young kinsman roost Implacably.
Bl "Wo don't understand," she said
M presently, turning her back upon the
Bl "Ifcrliups Captain Juarez' call will
H olonr matters for, um. Will you come
H with me, Senor Stnnway.?"
BJ , Torro's face darkened an ho watched
(hem go out' together.
H In tho drawing room ln mucl worn
H wnlform hnsocnklng, his rank,, a very
broad, heavy-set Mexican, swarthy,
hard-featured, keen-eyed, wns waiting.
He bowed deeply ns they entered.
"Scnorlta," ho said briskly, his eyes
disregarding Stnnway nnd resting
upon tho girl's fnco In n keen regard,
"It Is an unpleasant duty which
brings ino here this morning."
"Be sontcd," she said quietly, going
to u chnlr. "But first, Captain Juarez,
this Is my friend, Senor Stanway of
the Painted Itock rnnclio."
Tho two men bowed coolly. Stnn
way remained standing near the girl's
chair, while Juarez sat down.
"Wo of poor Mexico," said the cap
tain shortly, "aro fighting hard for a
dcur cause. Wo sacrlflco ourselves,
our hopes, our homes tie tho thing
wo love most, scnorlta,
"And that Is our country. Wo do

any opportunity which, chanco gives ui
to free tho neck of our land from tho
foot of tho tyrant."
"And you linvo called this morn
lng; you havo crossed tho border "
"At the behest of n Mexican's duty.
Scno.rltn, your grandfather Is well and
sends his lovo to you."
"Tell me," sho cried Impetuously,
"whero Is ho?"
"Many miles beyond tho border," ho
answered succinctly. "In tho hands

"And tlio.io demands?" curiously.
"I hnvo not as yet mado of him," re
turned tho captain. "Allow mo to ex

"nad I mado n demand upon him

I So I como straight to you,, without so
much as a word to him, Informing you

IIo broko off, shrugging his shoul
ders. "You realize, senor," broko In Stnn
way coolly, "that this Is rather an un
usual sort or thing at this duy? That
It Is not without danger to you? If
tho scnorlta wcro not disposed to give
what you nsk, If on tho other hand
wo held you for tho crime you havo
Again tho captain shrugged.
"It would mean Imprisonment for
me, or perhaps death," ho answered
promptly. "Things which a soldier
faces overy day of his life and grows
to think nothing nbout. Ami pardon
me', senorltn It would mcr.n tho denth
of tho Senor do In Gucrra."
Again n Uttlo shiver trembled
through tho frnmo of tho girl. Stan
wny, his eyes steady upon tho Mexi
can's, was silent n moment. Finally
ho said, turning to Teresa:
"Ueforo you glvo this gentleman his
answer, senorltn, may I ask for n few
words with you?"
"May I Interrupt ngnln?" It was
Kduardo Itamon Torre, Insolent and
debonair, bowing In tho doorway,, n
fresh, unllghtcd cigarette between his
fingers. "Ituenos dlas, Senor el Capl
tan." Captain Juarez stared at him fixed
ly, his hard eyes as Indolent as those
of Torre, and in ado no answer,
"I think, senor," went on Torro In
mock courtesy, still lounging In the
doorway, "that It Is with me that you
wish to deal. Am I not right, prima
mm?" lightly to Teresa.
Tho girl's eyes darkened. Juarez
looked from ono to another curiously.
"I think," ho said slowly, "that I
can havo business with no one except
la scnorlta. Sho Is the ono to speak
In a caso llko this one, slnco tho old
senor Is not hero to speak for himself
and sho Is his heiress."
"Let your keen eyes rest on this."
Torro drew tho will from his pocket
nnd carelessly tossed It Into Juarez'
Tho Mexican looked at It swiftly,
Ills eyo ran down tho written sheet,
and ho started palpably when his
glanco res tell upon the name Kduardo
"I havo been misinformed," ho
cried, starting to his feet. "The se
norltn Is not tho heiress. It Is Senor
Torro who Inherits I"
"Scguro," replied Torre, putting out
his shapely hand for tho will. "And I,
senor, am that Senor Torre. Now,
what doyou want ?"r
"This Is true, senorltn?" Juarez
whirled about, his eyes bright und
hard upon Teresa's.
"l'ou como from papa gronde," she
answered him guardedly. "Did he not
tell you of u change In his will?'!
'-Vo did not speak," Juarez remind-,
cd her. "As I havo said, I know that
it would bo useless to "talk with him.
Ho knows only that he Is being held;
ho docs not know why. I know only,"
nnd ho resorted to the shrug so much
ajpart of his method cf spccch,"that
' rumor has It that you nfo his heiress,
and this paper states that Torro In
herits." "Humor at times Is misinformed,"
Torro said smilingly. 'Tou have tho
will nnd testament Itself before you.
If It Is sufllclcntly plnln-tliat I and
not tho scnorlta," with an apologetic
bow to Teresa, "represent my klns
man; I trust that you will state your
"It Is this," snld Juarez shortly. "El

promptly, without a scratch on him.

aro modest, senor 1"
"American money," Juarez added ns
"American monoy," nodded (Torre.
"Thnt Is better thnn Mexican pesos,
at any, rate. It Is at least less Insult
ing to my kinsman."
Captain Juarez made no rcnlv. J
resa and Stnnway looked-at each fotner
Torre, smiling as though the wholo
mntter wero merely amusing, ad
dressed himself to tho girl! ,
"Tercsltn," and sho flushed under
the easy familiarity, "perhaps tho val
iant captain has not yet breakfasted.
Ho has n long rldo beforo him and It
would bo better If he should notM-y
nway a misunderstanding of tliVPOo In
Gucrrn hospitality. Also, while ho has
his' coffee, you nnd I might discuss
','Yes," tho girl ngrecd slowly. "Thnt
would perhaps bo best." Her hand
went to tho bell cord to summon Pe
dro, "Wo have Just breakfasted, senor
capltan. If you will go with Pedro iio
will see that you nro served. And Se
nor Torre, Senor Stnnway nnd, myself
can avnll ourselves of tho time to
como to n decision."
Tho captain bowed, nnd with no hes
itation turned his' back on' them to
follow tho servant to tho dining room.
Torro ca mo In, snt down, crossing his
legs w,lth cloborato caro to tho creasa
In his trousers, nnd favored Stanway
with n look which mocked openly.
"An Interesting situation, Is it not,
senor?" ho nsked lightly.
"An extremely hazardous game you
nro playing, Torre," cried Stanway an
grily. "I?" Torro llftou his brows. "It
Is not I who play. It Is I who wntch
the game." v
"Watch tho pawns your owtflo
hand has set moving I" t-ms Stnaflpb
heated retort. "Do you think that yon
can get away with a thing of this
kind, Torre? Why, man, Jt smells to
heaven I" '
"Itccrlmlnatlonsasldo at least shall
we postpono them? There Is a crisis
demanding attention. Now," lifting
his hand against Stanway'a words, "I
havo a proposition to make to you,
"What Is It?" sho nsked coldly.
"Merely this: As heir to tho Do la
Guerrn cstato I may bo n prejudiced
person. You, with no personal Inter
est," nnd n quick light flicked In his
eyes at tho girl's wincing at his wordi,
"aro tho one to decide. Shall tho cap
tain's request bo granted? I lenvo It
to you, senorltn. Entirely to you."
Tercsn bit her lip, tho color surging
angrily Into her cheeks. Sho saw the
trap as plainly as did Torre, as plainly
jis Stanwny saw It. And sho did not
sco the answer to make.
"It Is perhaps not Impossible," went
on Torro evenly, "thnt a large part of
tho sum montloned Is now on tho
premises. Wo all know that my kins
man has always been his own banker;
