ARRANCfMfwT WITH fH(M "And I lovo to talk to you, to tell yon what 1 would tell no other. Listen, then An envoy goes to Mexico next week with letters from Alvarado desiring that 1 be the next governor of tho (.'alifornias, and containing the assurance that tho die part men t junta will indorse mo. 1 shall follow next month to see Santa Anna per sonally; 1 know him well, and ho was a friend of my father's, 1 wish to be in vested with peculiar powers—that is to ■ay, 1 wish California to leu practically overlooked while 1 am governor, and 1 wish it understood that 1 shall lee gov ernor as long as I please. Alvarado does not care for the office again; he lias other ambitions. "Of course my predilection for the Americans must be carefully concealed both from the Mexican government and the mass of the people hero. Santa Anna and Alvarado know what is bound to couie; the Mexicans generally retain enough interest in the Californias to wish to keep them. I shall be the last governor of the department, and 1 shall employ that period to amalgamate the native population so closely that they will make a strong contingent in the new order of things and be completely tinder my domination. 1 shall establish a college with American professors, so tliat our youth will be taught to think, and to think in English. "Alvarado lias done something for ed ucation, hut not enough; ho has not en forced it. and the methods are very primitive. 1 intend to be virtually dic tator With as little delay as possible 1 shall establish a newspaper—a powerful weapon in tho hands of a ruler, as well as a factor of development. Then 1 shall organize a superior court for tho punish ment of capital crimes. Not that 1 do not recognize the right of a man to kill if his reasons satisfy himself, but there can lie no subservience to authority m a country where murder is practically licensed. 'American immigration will be more than encouraged, and it will he die tinctly understood by tlie Americans that I encourage it. Everything of course will lie done to promote good will lie tween the Californians and tho new comers. Then when the United Stales make up their mind to tako iiossessiun of 11s 1 shall waste no blood, but hand over a country worthy of capture. In the meantime it will have lieeu care fully drilled in the Californian uiiud that American occupation will bo for their ultimate good, and that I shall go to Washington to protect their interests. There will then be no foolish insurrec tions. Do you care to hear more'/” Her face was UusneU; tier client was rising rapidly •1 hardly know what to think—bow I feel. You interest me so much as you talk that 1 wish you to succeed; 1 pic ture your success. Aud yet it maddens me to hear you talk of the Americans in that way—also to know that your house will be greater than ours—that we will be forgotten. But—yes, tell mo all. What will you do then?” •1 will have California, in the first place, scratched for the gold that 1 be lieve lies somewhere within her. When that great resource is located and de veloped I shall publish in every Ameri can newspaper the extraordinary agri cultural advantages of the country. In a word, my object is to make California a great state and its name synonymous with my own. As I told you before, for fame as fume 1 care nothing; 1 do not care if 1 am forgotten on my deathbed; but with tny blood biting tny veins I must have action while living. Shall I say that I have have a worthier motive in wishing to aid in the development of civilization? But why worthier? Mere ly a higher form of selfishness. The liest and the worst of motives are prompted by the same instinct." •‘I would advise you,” she said slowly, “never to marry. Y our wife would bo very unhappy.” “But no ono has greater scorn than yon for the man who spends his life with his lips at the chalice of the poppy.” “True. I had forgotten them.” She rose abruptly. “Let us go back,” she said. “It is better not to stay too long.” As they walked down tho canyon sho looked at him furtively. The men of her race were almost all tall and finely pro Iiortioned, but they did not suggest strength as this man did. And his face— it was so grimly determined at times that she shrank from it, then drew near, fascinated. It had no beauty at all, but it liad a subtle power, an absolute au dacity, an almost contemptuous fearless ness in its bold, fine outline, a dominat ing intelligence in the keen, deeply set eyes, and a hint of weakness, where and what sho could not determine, that mys tified and magnetized her. “1 know you a little better," sho said, “just u little—enough to make my curi osity ache and lump. At tho same time I HlKto now what I did not before—that I might climb and mine and study and watch, and yon would always be beyond me. There is something subtle and evasive about you—something I seem to be close to always, yet never can see or grasp." “It is merely the barrierof sex. A man can knew a woman fairly well, because her life, consequently the interests which mold her mind and conceive her thoughts, are more or less simple. A man's life is so complex, bis nature so in evitably the sum and work of it—much of it lies so far outside of woman’s sphere, his mind spiked with a thousand magnets, each pointing to a different possibility— that she would need divine wisdom to comprehend him in his entirety, even if he made her a diagram of every cell in his brain—which he never would, out of consideration for both her and his own vanity. But within certain restrictions there can he a magnificent sense of comradeship." “But a woman, I think, would never be happy with that something in the man always beyond her grasp—that something which she conld be nothing to. She would he more jealous of that indejiendence of her in man than in an otner woman. “That was pure insight,” hosaid. “You could not know that.” "No,” ehe said. "1 had not thought of it before.” 1 had made a martyr of myself on a three cornered stone at the entrance of the canyon waiting to dnena them out. “Never will 1 do this again!" I exclaimed, w'ith that virtue born of discomfort, as they came in sight. "My dearest Eustaquia,” said Diego, kissing my hand gallantly, "thou hast given me pleasure so often, most charm ing and clever of women; thou hast but added one new art to thy overflowing store." Wo mounted almost immediately up on returning, und 1 was alone with Cho nita for a moment. “Do you realize that yon are playing with tire?" 1 said warningly "Estenega is a dangerous man; the most successful man with women 1 have ever known." "1 do not deny his power,” she said. ■But I am safe, for the many reasons thou knowest of. And being safe why should i deny myself the pleasure of talking to him? 1 shall never meet his like again. Let me live for a little while." "Ayo, but do not live too hard! It hurts down into the core and marrow." CHAPTER XVIIl She made a target of their shaven crowns. While we were eating supper a dozen Indian girls were gathered alxmt u table in one of the lurge rooms behind the house, busily engaged in blowing out the contents of several hundred eggs and fill ing the hollow shells with cologne, flour, tinsel, bright scraps of puj>er. Each egg was then sealed with white was and ready for the cascaron frolic of the even ing. We had been dancing, singing and talk ing for an hour after rosario when the eggs were brought in. In an instant ev ery girl’s hair was unbound, a wild dive was made for the trays and eggs flew in every direction. Dancing was forgotten. The girls and men chused each other about the room; the air was tilled with perfume and glittering particles, the lat ter looking very pretty on black floating hair. Etiquette demanded that only one egg should be thrown by the same hand at a time, but quick turns of supple wrists followed each other, very rapidly. To really accomplish a feat tho egg must crash on the back of the head, and each occupied in attack was easy prey. Chonita was like a child. Two priests were of our party, and she made a tar get of their shaven crowns, shrieking with delight. They vowed revenge and chased her all over the house, but not an egg had broken on that golden mane. She was surrounded at one time by Ca balleros, but she whirled and doubled so swiftly that every cascaron Hew afield. The pelting grew faster and more furi ous; every room was invaded; we chased each other up und down the corridors. me people in tno court had their casca rons also, and the noise must have been heard at the mission. Don Guillermo hobbled about delightedly, covered with tinsel and flour. Estenega had tried a dozen times to hit Chonita. but as if by instinct she faced him each time before the egg could leave his hand. Finally he pursued her down the corridor to her li brary, where I, fortunately, happened to be resting, and both threw themselves into chairs, breathless. “Let us stay here,” he said. “We have l)ad enough of this." “Very well," she Baid. She bent her head to lift a book which had fallen from a shelf, and felt the soft blow of the cas caron. “At last I” said Estenega contentedly. “I was determined to conquer if I waited until morning.” Chonita looked vexed for a moment— she did not liko to be vanquished—then shrugged her shoulders and leaned back in her chair. The little room was plainly furnished. Shelves covered three sides, and the window seat and table were lit tered with books. There were no cur tains, no carpet, no ornaments; but Cho nita's hair, billowing to the floor, her slender voluptuous form and radiant face, the candle light half revealing, half concealing, made a picture requiring no background. 1 caught the expression of Estenega’s face and determined to re main if he murdered me. Peals of laughter, joyous shrieks, screams of mock terror floated in to us. I broke a silence which was growing awkward; “How happy they are! Creatures of air and sunshine! Life in this Arcadia is an idyl." “They are not happy,” said Estenega contemptuously; “they are gay. They are light of heart through absence of material cares—an endless source of en joyment, which in its turn has bred a careless order of mind. But did each pause long enough to look into his own heart would he not find a stone some where in its depths—perhaps a skull graven on the stone—who knows?” "Oh, Diego!” 1 exclaimed impatiently, “this is a jiarty; not a funeral.” “Then is no one happy?” asked Cho nita wistfully. “How can he be when in each mo ment of attainment he is pricked by the knowledge that it must soon be over? The youth is not happy because fhe shadow of the future is on him. The man is not happy because the knowledge of life's incompleteness is with him.” •Then of what use to live at all?” “No use. It is no use to die either; so we live. I will grant that there may be ten completely happy moments in life—the ten conscious moments preced ing certain death—and oblivion.” "I will not discuss the beautiful hope of our religion with you, because you do | not believe, and 1 should only get angry. But what are we to do with this life? You say nothing is wrong nor right. What would you have the stumbling and unanchored do with what has been thrust upon them?” “Man, in his gropings down through the centuries, has concocted, shivered and patched certain social conditions I well enough calculated to develop the best and the worst that is in us, making ! it easier for us to be bad than good, that l good might be the standard. We feel I a deeper satisfaction if we have con i querod an evil impulse and done what is accepted as right, becauso we have 1 groaned and stumbled in the doing; that is all. Temptation is sweet only because the impulse comes from the depths of our being, not because it is difficult to be tempted. If we overcome the satis ; faction is deep and enduring—which only ; goes to show that mau is but a petty egoist, always drawing pictures of him self on a pedestal. The man who eman cipates himself from traditions and yields to his impulses is debarred from happiuess by the blindfolded generations 1 preceding him, which arranged that to yield was easy and to resist difficult. Had the}- reversed the conditions and conclusions the majority of the human race would have fought each other to death, but the selected remnant would have had a better time of it. “Let us suppose a case as conditions now exist. Assume, for the sake of ar gument, that you loved me and that you plucked from your nature your religion, your fidelity to your house, your love for your brother and gave yourself to me. ! You would stand appalled at the sac rifice till you realized that you had come to me only because it would have been more difficult to stay away. You conquer the passionate cry of love—the strongest the human compouud ever has voiced—and you are miserably happy for the rest of your life, no attitude being so pleasing to the soul as the attitude of martrydom. Many a man and woman looks with some impatience for the lost goodby to be said, so sweet is the pros pect of sadness, of suffering, of resigns non. I was agha6t at his audacity, but I saw that Chonita was fascinated. Her ego tism was caressed and her womanhood thrilled. "Are we all such shams hb that?’ was what she said. “You make me despise myself." "Not yourself, but a great structure, of which you are but a grain, with a faulty foundation. Don’t despise your self. Curse the builders who shoveled those stones together." He left her then, and she told me to go to bed; she wanted to sit awhile and think. “He makes you think too much,” I ■aid. “Better forget what he says as soon as you can. He is a very disturb ing influence.” But she made me no reply and sat there staring at the floor. She began to feel a sense of helplessness, like a crea ture caught in a net. It was more the man's personality than his words which made her feel as if be were pouring him self all through her, taking possession of brain and every sense, as though he were a devilfish with a thousand arms. “1 believe 1 was made from his rib,” she thought angrily, “else why can he have this extraordinary power over me? I do not love him. 1 have read some what of love and seen more. This is different, quite. I only feel that there is something in him that 1 want. Some times 1 feel that 1 must dig my nails into him and tear him apart until I find what 1 want—something that belongs to me. Sometimes it is as if he promised it; at others as if he were unconscious of its existence—always it is evanescent. Is he going to make my mind his own? And yet he always seems to leave mine free. He has never snubbed me. He makes me think. There is the danger." An hour later there was a tap on her door. Casa Grande was asleep. She sat upright, her heart beating rapidly. Es tenega was audacious enough for any thing. But it was her brother who en tered. “Reinaldo!” she exclaimed, horrified to feel an unmistakable stab of disap pointment. “Yes. it is 1. Art thon alone?” “Sure.” “I have something to say to thee.” He drew a chair close to her and sat down. “Thon knowest, my sister,” ho began, haltingly, “how I hats the house of Estenega. My hatred is as loyal as thine; every drop of blood in my veins is true to the honor of the house of Iturbi y Moncada. But, my sister, is it not so that one can sacrifice himself, his mere personal feelings, upon the altar of his country? Is it not so, my sister?” “What is it thou wishest me to under stand.

Thou art devoted to thy house?" “Thou hast come here in the night to ask me such a question as that?” “And thou lovest thy brother?" “Reinaldo, thou hast drunken more mescal than Angelica. Go back to thy bride.” But although she spoke lightly she was uneasy. “My sister, I never drank a drop Of mescal in my life. Listen. It is our father’*wish, thy wish, my wish, that I become a great and distinguished man, an ornament to the house of Iturbiy Moncada, a star on the brow of Cali fornia. How can I accomplish this great and desirable end? . By the medium of politics only; onr wars are so insignifi cant. I have been debarred from the departmental junta by the enemy of our house, else would it have rung with my eloquence and Mexico have known me today. .Yet I care little. for the junta. I wish to go as dipntado to Mexico; it i* a grander arena. Moreover, in that great capital I shall become a man of the world, which is necessary to control men. That lis his power, cone him! And he—he will not let me go there. Even Alvarado listens to him. The de partmental junta is under his thumb. I will never be anything but a caballero of Santa Barbara—I, an Iturbi y Mon cada, the last scion of a line illustrious in war, in diplomacy, in politics—until he is either dead—do not jump, my sis ter; it is not my intention to murder him and ruin my career—or becomes my friend.” “Canst thou not put thy meaning in fewer words?” LTD BE CONTINUED. | “AIUKESIS ” gives Instant, relief and is an Infallible Cure fbr I’ilca.
