A BLOOD TAX.
Payment by a French Town to Spain
For an Ancient Crime.
Seven hundred years ago some shep
herds of the valley of Roncal, in Na
varre, were murdered by shepherds of
the valley of Bareton. in Beam, the
crime taking place on the high pasture
lands of Arias, in the Pyrenees. It
would have been difficult to bring the
murderers individually to justice, and
the Spaniards were preparing to make
war upon the valley from which the
French murderers had come when the
French villages proposed that peace be
maintained at the price of a yearly tax
or tribute, to endure for all time, and
this proposition was accepted.
The payment of this blood tax—origi
nally three white mares, but later three
cows of a particular breed and color
has been made ever since, the custom
(it is nothing more) having survived
even the great wars in which both
France and Spain have engaged and
the storm of the French revolution.
Yearly the representative men of the
two valleys meet on the frontier at a
certain stone remote from any town
and go through the ceremony of pre
senting and receiving the cattle. The
order of procedure, which is elaborate
and impressive. Is fixed by a document
bearing the date 1375. though the tax
was paid a hundred years prior to that
time. The records of each yearly meet
ing and payment are duly attested and
deposited in the archives of the Ron
calais.—New York Tribune.
