(CHAPTER XI?Continued.)
Esteban idolized his sister, her loy
alty to him waa the most precious
thine of hi? x,ife. Therefore, the
thought of that swarthy ruffian hunt
ing her down ae a hound hange to the
trait of a doe awoke In him a terrible
anger. Second only to his haired for
the guerrilla chief was his bittern???
against the traitor. Pancho Cuet?,
who liad capped his villainy by set
ting th_ti new peril upon them; une
since Rosa's safety and his own hon
or called for the death of both men.
he had sworn that somehow he would
effect it. It wan. of course, a difficult
matter to get at the colonel of vol
unteers, hut Cueto still lived in the
midst of his blackened fields, and tt
wi'ii against him that the boy was
now planning tn launch hit* flrst blow.
The mentiou of Cobo's name had
moment aril y distracted Esteban's
thoughts. Now he collected them and
said:
"Walt' I am forgetting something.
See what Lacret'a men handed me;
they are posted from one end of tne
island to the other." He displayed a
printed bando, or proclamation,
s.gned by the new captain-general,
and read as follows:
"All inhabitants of the country die
tricts, or those who reside outside the
lines of forti neat ions of the towns,
shall, within a period uf eight dare,
enter the town? which are occupied by
the troops. Any individual found out
side the lines in the country at the
expiration of this period shall be con
sidered a rebel and shall be U-*alt with
a.?* such."
It wag that Inhuman order of con
< cntratton, the result of which proved
to be without panile) in military his
tory?an order'which gav? its savage
author the name of bains; the arch
fiend of a nation reputed peculiarly
cruel. Neither Esteban nor Rosa, bow
ever, grasped the full significane? of
the proclamation t no on? could have
done ?o. No eye could hav? foreseen
the merciless butchery ot noncora
batants, the starvation and death by
disease of hordes of helpless men.
women and children herded into tbe
cities. Four hundred thousand Cu
bans driven from their homes Into
shelterless prison camps; more than
two hun?h-ed thousand dead from hun
ger and disease; a fruitful '.and laid
bare or all that could serve ss food,
and changed to an ash-gray desola
tion; gaunt famine from Orient? to
Pinar del Rio?that was the sequel to
those printed words of "Weyler tb?
Butch?*" which Esteban read. ? e
"Eight day?! When I? Ihe tlm? up?"
Rosa inquired.
"Bless you, this is already two
week? old!" her brother told ber.
"Why, then. It means ?hat we'll be
?hot If we're caught."
"Exactly! But we sha'n't be
caught, eh? Let the timid ones take
fright at the squeaks of this old
blackbird. Let them go Into the
cities; we ?hall have the more to eat!"
Esteban crumpled the paper In bla
hand and dropped it. "Meanwhile 1
shall proceed to vard my aettlement
with Pancho Cueto." Hla very care
lens confidence gave Rosa courage.
WHEN THE WORLD RAN BACK
WARD.
Esteban went about hi? plan of de
stroying Pancho Cueto with youthful
energy and ?est. First he secured, at
some pains, a half-stick of dynamite.
a cap and a fuse, and a gallon or
more of kerosene; then he assembled
his followers and led them once again
into the San Juan.
This time the ride to La Joya was
longer than before, and since every
member of the little band was pro
inrribed. Esteban insisted upon the
"?reutest caution. Hut there was little
need of especial care, for the coun
try was already depopulated, as a re
sult of Werter*? proclamation. Fields
were .?mpty. houses silent; no living
creatures stirred, except in the tree
tops, and the very birds seemed
frightened, subdued. It ?truck young
Varona queerly. It waa as if the
whole land was in mourning; he saw
nothing but blackbirds, somber-hued
vultures, dismal J dea-birds with
their ebon*- plumage and yellow beaks.
Far up the valley a funeral pall or
.?moke hung in the sky itself; that
was where the Spaniards were burn
ing ihe houses of tlio?*?e too slow in
obeying the order of concentration.
U Joya, however, was still tenant
?TP
ed when early in the evening Its right
ful owner arrived; th? boo?? aad some
of Ita outbuildings showed light?. Es
teban concealed Mi men. Wall? the
horse? cropped and tbe negroes rest
ed he fitted fisse and cap to hi? pre
cious piece of dynamite. It ina
likely, he thought, that Cueto had
provided himaelf wtth a body-guard,
and knowing th? plantation hou?? a?
be did. he ?aad no Intention ot batter
ing weakly at its Stout Ironwooxl door
while hia quarry took fright and slip
ped away.
Now while E*teban was thus busied,
Pancho Cueto waa entertaining an un
welcome guesL In th* late afternoon
he had been surprised by th? visit ot
a dosen or mors volunteers, and In
asmuch aa his relation? witb their
colonel bed been none of the friend
liest since that Ill-starred ex: edition
into the Yumuri, be had felt a ch.ll
of apprehension on seeing the re
doubtable Cobo himself st their heead.
The colonel had explained that he
waa returning from a trip up the Ban
Juan, taken for the purpose of round
ing* up those inhabitants who had
been dilatory in obeying the new or
ders from Havana. That amoke to
the southward was from fires of his
kindling; he had burned a good many
crops and houses and punished a good
many people, and since this wss ex
actly the sort of task he liked he was
tn no unpleasant mood. He had de
manded of Cueto lodging for himself
and hia troop, announcing that a part
of his command was somewhere be
hind and would rejoin him later In the
night.
Cueto piad welcomed hla vliltor In
all humility; he put up the soMlers In
the Date of the sugar-mill, and then
Installed Cobo In his best room, after
which he ransacked the house for food
and drink and tobacco.
Later he and the colonel sat long
over their supper, for the latter? ex
1 ultant humor continued. Cobo, it
| transpired, waa delighted with the
new captain-general, a man of blood
and iron, a man after his own heart.
This Weyler, he predicted, would put
an end to the Insurrection; there
would be no more of I'ampo's weak,
merciful method?, which were, In real
ity, nothing leas than encouragement
to revolt. Cueto, of couree, agreed.
"We're ?weeping the country as with
a broom, and already Mantamas is
bulging with refugee?." the ol*J;cer
teli! him. "They call themselves
psclflcos; but they carry information
and aid our enemies. We'll have no
more ofsliat.??
"Vf-UI it not be a great expense to
feed so many people?" Cueto ven
tured.
"Let them feed themselves. Is it
our fault that they make such meas
ure? ne*..*?ary? By no means. Once
we have them safe, we shall ester
nante all whom we encounter In the
country." The speaker drank deeply
of ?'?'???'.?? good wine and ?m:'< k?-d
hi? lip?. "It s the kind of work 1
like. Extermination! They have had
their warning. From now on we ?hall
upare neither man. woman nor child.
The men are traitor?., the women
breed and the children grow up."
Cueto nodded his complete approval
of this program. "Oh, decidedly,".
?said he. "Thia apiri t of violence nuit
be stamped out or none of ua will
be aafe, Lat me tell -jr-eu I ayheit
Uve in conatant tt<?ad of that yonng
villain. Varona, ?-hop? you haven't

"F?rgot Un him?" Colonel Cobo
