Tllfl.linn nf Tula nml tho troo of Sad
ps'lgltiio known tluoughout tho world
,bnt tucro Is a trco In Moxlco which
linB ttcqulied a local reputation somo
I El'Mrbol Maldllo is said to havo
bcoijjiianlcd by a gentleman who had
iho nllsfortune to bo swallowed up by
Mother Earth on account of bis crlmos.
llo was known tluoughout tho country
as unhombia nitty mnlo. Ho never
wont to mass, never confessed his
sins, nor did ho havo tho Imago or a
saint, in his house, wear a rosary
'Aiound his neck or muko tho slgu of
tho cross as a rcspoctablo man should.
Ho never gavo u beggar oven n ccnta
vlto, nnd when ho mot n pridrcclto on
tho strcot ho did not deign to rcmovo
Now It was rumored, says Modern
Mexico, thnt this gentleman was ro
sponsible for ninny murders and ntro
wiioiisiuio ior ninny murucrs nuu niro-i
clous crimes of every dcscilptlon, but
ho wnB never conilucd iu Jail becaubo.
It was known that ho had n compact
with tho devil, so that whenever ho
Invoked hh Majesty ho was icddorcd
invisible to tho human cyo, or at least
so small that ho could easily efceape.
Ho was shunned by 'nil, ahd "ho had
neither friends nor relatives.
Hut u peculiar thing about this man
wnB thut ho lovod tho trees, tho birds
and nil tho animals. Ho planted a
great many trees and fed a flock ol
birds every morning.
It wns muny j-oais ago that the
event of his departure took placo, but
Ib still reuiomboicd by tho ancient In
habitants of tho neighborhood. Every
body on tho Hnclcndlta ranch had at
tended tho lollglotiB sorviccB of tho
morning, nhd they woro ictuinlng
homo whon a terrific nolso was heard.
They rushed to tho strcot whero it
canto fiom, nnd there they saw how
tho catth had opened up under the
foot of that hombro iiitty mnlo. lie
wns enveloped by thick flnmes nnd
smoko nnd quickly disappeared be
neath tho surfaco of tho catth.
This was considered n Just punish
ment iu view of tho situation, and
ovety ono was cxcccdlnly plcabcd.
While tho faithful hnd been attending
tho services of tho church tho cursed
ono hnd.uolhlng else to do but placo a
burning cigaietto between tho lips oi
nn Imago on a big crucifix, carried by
an nltar on tho street. It wns then
thnt the convenient cavity opened up
nnd ho wns engulfed by tho cntth.
Thnt very day all tho tiocs which
he had planted, .except El Arbol Mnl
dlto, dried up nnd died and so did
tho birds which ho hnd fed fiom his
own hand. An attempt was made to
cut down the troo tbnt did not dry
up, but tho foolish mnn who mado the
attempt dropped dead on stopping un
dor the shadow of the follago. As no
ono had the temctlty to approach and
icuiovo It Iho man's body hnd lo be
left thcro to bo eaten by tho ciows.
Slnco that day many huvo met a
tingle death undor tho tree. A pedes
train who went under It lor shade oil ti
uiimiucr day was bitten by u snake
uud died In tow houra. .Thrco men on
different occasions sought sholtcr fiom
lain under its branches nnd were
struck by lightning.
A woman hanging somo clothes Ic
dry from tho trunk of tho tieo was ul
tacked by a goat that enmo fiom no
bod j knows wheru and whs never seen
again. Tlnuo je.us ngo n llttlu buy
lidliig a bin i o. led his animal to the
treo. Ho wan llnowu oif uud kicked Jo
Tho last victim of this fatal tico
was a man hy the name of Mclqulude.
Aiovalo, who ran undor It for uhul
,ter during ti ralnsloint n jear ago, and
llko his prcdcccasois, he was shuck
Tho antipathy that (ho poons have
lor this trco Is such that they rofusc
to work In tho fluids for half a milt
aiound It. Somo tlmo agoiProspcro
Gatcla, proprietor of the. ranch whoic
El Arbol Mnldllo glows,' rosolvod to

no doubt ho has becu tinnhlu to find a
bun bruvii enough to vonluro nvar n
