'Cenyrlfht, by Ilirpcr nil Drolhtri) FOREWORD The Cuba of tho days of Wcylcr and Gomez and the ragged, hnlNstarvcd bands of "insurreolos" furnishes an admirable background for this delightful story, in which love, war and tho search for a buried treasure are the principal strands that are Interwoven to make a plot that Is worthy of tho mind of Rex Beach. The author of "The Spoilers," "Tho Barrier," and other stlrrlnn tales, has produced his most thrlllinn, story In "Rainbow's End." CHAPTER I. The Valley of Delight. In nil probability your llrnt view of the vnllcy of tlio Ynmurl will lio from ttif Hermitage of Montscrrute. for It I" there tliat llit cochcros drive you. There you overlook Hie fairest sight In Kll Christendom "the loveliest vnlley In the world." ns Ilutnholilt collet It for tiiu Yumurl nestle!) right nt your feet, n vale of pure delight, n glimpse of Paradise Hint bewilders the eye nnd Blhi the onl with eostnsy. Htntidlng beside (Ik- shrine of Our Ijidy of Moiitsorrute, you will Fee be yoml the cleft through which tho river emerges nnnthcr hill, I.n Cutnhre, from' which the view In wonderful, nnd your driver mny tell you nhout tho splendid homes Hint used to gruci- It slopes In the golden days when Culm hnd tin aristocracy. Your Coeliern intiy point out n certnln grove of orange trees, now little more Hunt n rnnlt (ancle, nnd tell you nhout the nulntn of Don Flstcban Vnronn, nnd Its hidden treas ure; nhout little l'stelmti nnd Host:, tho twins; mid utmiit Sebastian, tho giant slave, who died In fury, Inking with him the secret of the well. The Kpnnliih Mnlu Is rich In tnles of tr.'inure-trnve. for when the Antilles were most nllluent they were lenst so cure, nnd men were put to slrnnge uhlfls lo protect their fortunes. Cer tnln hoards, like Jewels of tragic his tory. In time nssumed n sort of ovll IHTsonnltty, not Infrequently exercising n dire Influence over the lives of those who chnneed to fnll under their M'elln. It win ni If the money were nccursed, for certainly the seekers often cmne to evil, Of such n chnrnctcr wm the Vnronn trensure. Don Kstchun himself wns neither hotter nor worso thnn other men of his time, nnd although pnrt of I lie money he hid wns wrung from the toll of alnvcs and tho trnlllc . their hodles, much of It wns ctenn imiigh, nnd In tlmo the enrth purified It nil. Since his nets tnnde so deep nn Impress, nnd since tho treasure he left played so hie n pnrt In the destinies of those who rnme nfter him, It la well that soino nccount of theso mutters should ho Klven. The story, plensc rcmeniher, la nn old one; It hns ticeti often told, nnd In the telling nnd retelling It Is hut nnturul that n certnln glamour, n certnln troplcnl extravagance, Mmuld uttuch to It. therefore you fchould make nllnw nnco for some exaggeration, some no rrt-tlons due to the Inpse of time. In the main, however, It Is well nuthcntl cntcd nnd runs pnrnllel to fuel. Ilonnn Hosn Vnronn lived Imrely long enough to lenrn Hint sho hnd given birth to twins, Don KUchun, whom people knew us n grim man, took the blow of tils sudden herenveincnt lis be en mo una of his strong llher. l.envlng the priest upon his knees nnd the doc tor busied with the hnhles, ho strode through the house nnd out Into the sunset, followed by the walls of the slnvu women. Don Kstchun was at heart n selfish man, nnd now. therefore, he felt n sul len, fierce resentment mingled with his grief. What trick whs this? he asked himself. Whnt had he done to merit such intsfortune? Had he not made rich gifts to the church t Had he not knelt nnd praed for his wife's safe delivery nnd then hung tils gifts npon the sacred Image, sa lijola hud hung up his w lupous before that other counterpart of Our Lady? Don Uste ban scowled nt the memory, for those gems were of the finest. He looked up from his unhappy musings to find a glguntlc bare footed negro standing before him. The stave was mlddle-sged ; his kinky hair was growing gray; but he was of superb proportions, and the muscles which showed through the rents In his cotton garments were as smooth nnd supple as those of a stripling, ills black face waa puckered with grief, a he began t "Master, Is It true that Donna Hose " Tho fellow choked. "Tee." Esteban nodded, wearily, "the u dead, Rebaatlan," Tears came to Sebastian's eye and overflowed his cheeks; he stood mo tionless, striving to voire his sympathy, At length be acidi "floe waa too good for this world. (lod waa Jenlour and took here to Pnrii dlse." The widowed man cried out angrily; "Paradise I Whnt Is this hut Pnra tllso?" llo tared wllh resentful eyes nt the benuty round nl. Jul him. "Heel Tho Yumurl I" Don Ustehan flung a long arm outwnrd. "Do you think there la u sight llko Hint In heaven? I'arn dlao Indeed! I gnve her everything. She gained nothing by dying." With n grave Hioiightfulucss which proved litin superior to the ordinary slave, Sebastian replied: "Tme! She hnd nil that any wom an's henrt could desire, but In return for your goodness she gnve you chil dren. You hnve lost her, but you hnvo gained nn heir, nnd a benutlful girl baby who will grow to bo another Donnn Itosa. I grieved ns you grieve, once upon n time, for my woman died In childbirth, too. You remember? Hut my daughter lives, nnd she tins brought sunshine Into my old n.v Thnt Is tho purpose of children." He paused and shifted his weight uncertainly, digging his stiff black toes Into the dirt After n Hina lie snld, slowly; "Kxccllencyl How, nhout Hie well ?" "Yes. What nbout It?" "Did tho Donna Hosn conllde her shnro of the secret to nnynno? Those priests nnd thoso doctors, you know " "She died without spenklng." Then It rests between you nnd me?'' "It does, unless you hnvo babbled." "Master 1" Sebastian drew himself up nnd there was real dignity In his blade faco. "Understand, my whole fortune Is there everything, oven to tho deeds of patent for the plantations. If 1 thought there wits danger of you betraying me I would have your tongue nulled out and your eyes torn from their sockets." The black man spoke with n sim plicity that cnrrlcd conviction: Times uro unsettled, Don Ustcban, nnd death ciimcs without warning. You nre known to be the richest man In this province nnd these government nlllcliils mo rubbers. Suppose I should be left ulone? What then?" Tho planter considered for a mo ment. "Well, when my children nre old enough to hold their tongues they will hnvo to be told. If I'm gone, you shttll he Hie one lo tell them. Now leave me; this Is no tlmo lo speak of such things," Sebastian went as noiselessly as he had come. On his way buck to his quar ters ho took tho path to the well thu place where moit of his time wits ordi narily spent, Sebastian bad dug thli well, and with his own hands he hud beautified Its surroundings until they were the loveliest on the Verona grounds. It wns Sebastian's task to keep this place green, and thither he took Ids wuy, from force of hublt. Through tho twilight came t'uncho Cueto, the manager, n youngish man, wlUi u narrow face nnd bold, ctoso-set eyes. Spying Sebastian, bo began; "So Don I.stcbnn has nn heir at last?" Tho slave rubbed his eyes with the heel of his huge yellow palm und an swered, respectfully : "Yes, Don I'nncho, Two little nngels, ii boy nnd n girl," His gray brows drow together tu a painful frown, "Donna ltotu was n saint. No doubt there Is great rejoicing In heaven nt her coming. Kh? What do you think?" "Um-ml Possibly. Don Kstchnn will miss her for n time nnd then. 1 dnro say, be will remarry." At the negro's exclamation Cueto said: "Sol And why not? IJveryhody knows how rich ho Is, from Orlrnte to l'liuir del I tin tho women have heard about his treas ure." "What treasure?" asked Sebastian, after tin Instant's pnuso. Cueto'a dark eye glennied resent fully at this show of tgnoruncn, hut be laughed. "llo! There's n careful fellow for you' No wonder he trusts you. Hut do yon think I hnvo neither eyes nor corn? My good Hebnstlnn. you know all about that treasure; In fact, you huow tar more nbout ninny things than Don Wstebnn would caro lo have you tell, t'nme now, don't you?" Sebmllnn's face was like n mask i-erved from ebony. "Of what does this treasure consist?" ho Inquired. "I have never heard about It," "Of gold, of Jewels, of silver bars and precious ornaments," Cueto'a head was thrust forward, his nostrils wero dilated, his teeth gleamed. "Oh, It Is somewhere about, us you very well know! Unlit Don't deny It. I'm no fool. What becomes of tho money from tho slave girls, eh? And Hie sugar crops, too? Does It go to buy arms and ammunition fur the rcbela? No. Don Ksteban hides It, and you help mm. uomo, be cried, disregard ing Hehnstlan'a murmurs of protest, "did you ever think how fabulous that fortune must bo by this time? Did you ever think that one IHUe gem, one bng of gold, would buy your freedom?" "Don Esteban baa promised to buy my freedom and (be freedom of my girl." "So?" The manager waa plainly surprised. "I didn't know that" After u moment he began to laugh. "And yet yon pretend to know nothing about that treasure? Hat Tou're good boy, Sebastian, and so 1 a in. I admire you. We're both loyal to onr master, eh? But now aboat Kvanfellna," Cueto'a face took on a crnftler expres sion. "She Is n likely girl, und when she grows up alio will be worth more thnn you, her father. Don't forget Hint Don l.stcbau Is beforo all else n busi ness mnn. He careful thnt soma one doesn't make him so good an offer for your girl thnt ho -.v 1 1 1 forget his prom ise mid sell her," Hchnstlnn uttered n hoarse, animal cry nnd the whites of his eyes showed through the gloom. "He would never sell l.vniigollim I" Cueto Inughed aloud once more. "Of course! Ho would not dare, eh? I urn only tensing you. Hut seel You have given yourself nwoy. Everything you tell me pruvos Hint you know nil about Hint trensure." "I know hut one thing." the slnve declared, stiffening himself slowly, "und that Is to bo faithful to Don tehan," He turned nnd departed, leav ing I'nncho Cueto staring after him meditatively. In the days following the birth of his children nnd the death of his wife, Don l.stolmti Vnronu, us had been Ida custom, steered u middle course In politics. In Hint wny mnnnglng to uvold a clash with the Spanish ofllclals who ruled the Island, or an open break with his Cuban neighbors, who rebelled he nenth their wrongs, I.stchan dealt diplomatically with boUi factions und went on raising slaves and sugar to his own great profit The twins, Kstcbun nnd Itnsn, devel oped Into healthy children nnd became tint pride of Sebastian nnd his daugh ter, Into whose caro they hud been given. As for Kviingcllnn, the young uegfess, she grow tail and strong nnd haudsnme, until she was the finest slavo girl In the neighborhood. Then, one day, Don Kslcbiin Vnronn remarried, und tho Donna Isabel, who hod been a famous lluliana beauty, came to llvi nt tho qultita. The daugh ter nt Impoverished parents, she hnd heard and thought much about the mysterious treasure of I .a Cumbre, llcforo the Hrst fervor of his honey moon cooled tho groom begun to feur that ho hud made a serious mistake. Donnn Isabel, he discovered, wns bolh vain nnd solflnh. Not only did sho crnvo luxury and display, but with bin gulnr persistence she demanded lo know nil nbout her husband's financial affairs. , Now Don Hstehun waa no longer young; ngo bad soured htm with sus picion, und when once ho saw himself as Hie victim of u mercenary mnrrluge he turned bitterly against his wire. Her curiosity he sullenly resented, und be unbluthlngly denied his pussesslon of any considerable wealth. In fact, he tried with malicious Ingenuity to make her believe him a pour mnn. Hut Isabel was not of tho sort to be readily deceived, l-'lndlng her aria nnd co quetries uf no avail, she flew Into n rage, und a furious quarrel ensued tho first of many. For tho Indy could not rest without knowing all (hero wus to know about tho treasure. She searched the qulntu, uf course, whenever she had n chance, but she discovered nothing- -with the result that the mystery began to engross her whole thought. She pried Into the ob scurest corners, she questioned the slaves, she lay nwuko at night listening to I'ste'nan'8 breathing, lu the hope uf surprising Ids secret from bis dreams. At length n tlmo enmo when Ihey lived In frank enmity; when lsuhcl never spoke to llmelian except In rcprnnch or anger, und when Kstcbiui unlocked his lips only to taunt Ida wife with the fact that the bad been thwarted de spite her cunning. It was only natural under such con ditions that Donnn Isabel should lenrn to dlsllko her stepchildren Kstcbon had told her fruukly that they would Inherit whatever fortune he possessed, As mny bo Imagined, elm found wuys to vent her spite upon the twins. Sho widened her hatred so as to Include old Seluuilan and his duughter, and even went so far ns to persecute Kvnnge llna's sweetheart, a slave named Asen-slo. It bad not taken Donna Isabel long to guess the reason for Sebastian's tunny privileges, and oue of her first efforts had been to win tho old man's confidence. It was In Talu, however, that she flattered and cajoled, or stormed and threatened; Sebastian wlthitood her as a towering celba with stands the summer heat and the win ter hurricane. Ills firmness made her vindictive, nnd so In time she laid a scheme to estrnngo him from his master. Donna Isabel was crafty. She began to complain ubout I.vnngclluu, but It waa only ufter ninny months that sho ventured to auggest to her husband thnt ho sell the girl. Kstcbnn, of course, refused point-blank ; he was too fond of Sebastian's daughter, he d dared, to think of such n thing,' "So, Uiat Is It," sneered Donna Isu bel. "Well, ahe Is young and shapely nnd handsome, ns wenches go, I rather suspected you were fond of her " With dirtlculty Uatrbon restrained nn oath, "You mistake my meaning," he said etlflly. "Sebastian has served me faithfully, and I.vsngellna plays with my children. She la good to them; she la more of a mother to them than you bare ever been." "la that why yoo dreas her Ilk lady? Bah I A likely story I" Isabel tossed her line, dark head. "I'm not blind ; I seo whnt goes on about me, 1 won't hnve Hint wench In my house." (londed to fury by his .wifo'H sense less accusation, littchan cried: 'Your house? Hy what license do you call It yours?" Am I not married to you?" 'Yes us n leech Is married to Its victim. You suck my blood." "Your blood I" The woman laughed shrilly. "You have nn blood; your veins run vinegar. You nre u miser." 'Miser I Mlserl I grow sick of the word. It Is all you find to Intuit mv with. Confess that you married me for my money," ho mured. Of courso I did! Do you think n womun of my beauty would marry you for anything else? Hut u line bargain I made I" "Vampire I" "Wlfo or vampire, I Intend to nilo this home, nnd I refuse to he shamed by u thick-lipped African. Her airs tell her story, Sho is Insolent to mc, but I shn'n't endure It, She laughs at me. Well, your friends shall laugh nt you," "Silence I" commanded l.sicban. "Sell her, or" Without waiting to hear her threat Ustcban tossed bis arms above his heud and fled from tho room. Flinging himself Into tho saddle, ho spurred down tho hill aud through the town to the Casino de ICspanol, where he spent tho night nt cards with the Spanish of ficials. Hut ho did not sell Kvangcllna. In the days Hint followed many simi lar scenes occurred, and ns I.stcban'a home life grew moro unhappy his dissi pations Increased. Ho drunk nnd gam bled heavily; ho brought his friends to the qulnti) with him, nnd strovo tu for get domestic unpleasantness In boister ous revelry. Ills wife, howovcr, found opportuni ties enough to weary and exnspcrnto lu in with reproaches regurdlng the slave girl. CHAPTER II. Spanish Cold. The twins were seven years old when Donna Isabel's schemes bore their first bitter fruit, and thu occasion was n particularly uproarious night when Don I.stehun entertained a crowd of his Cnstlllnn friends. I.lttlo Hosn was nwukened ut a Inte hour by tho laugh ter and shouts of her father's guests, She was afraid, for there was some thing strange about the voices, some quality to them which wns foreign to the child's experience. Creeping Into her brother's room, she awoke him, and "Your Father Has Sold Me to Hlml" together they listened, Hosa began to whimper, and when Estoban tried lo reassure her his own voice waa thin and reedy from fright In the midst of their agitation they heard some one weeping; there came a rush of feet down the hallway, nnd tho next Instant Kvangcllna flung herself Into the room, Sho felt upon her knres before them. "I.lttlo tnnsterl Little mistress I" she sobbed. "You will save me, won't you? We love each other, eh? See then, what a crime this la I Say that you will save inel" Tho children were frightened, but they managed to quaver; "What has happened? Who hns harmed you?" "Don I'ablo I'eia," wept the negress. "Your fattier baa sold me to him lost me at cards. Oh, I shall die I Rebnar Hon won't believe It He Is praying. And Asenslo Hut what can they do to help me? You alone can save me. You won't let Don I'ablo take mo away? It would kill me." "Waltl" Ksteban scrambled oat of bed and stood before his dusky nurse nnd playmate. "Don't cry any more. I'll tell papa that you don't like Don I'ablo." Hosa followed. "Yss, com along. brother." alio cried, shrilly. 'We'll ten Don I'ablo to gn homo nnd leave our Kvungcllnn." "My blessed doves I Hut wilt they listen lo you?" moaned the slnve. "I'npn docs whatever wo osk," they nssured her, grnvcly. "If he should growl we'll come back and hide ou In the big wnrdroho where nobody will ever llnd you." Then bnnd In hand, with their long nightgowns lifted to their knees, they pnttcred out Into the hall nnd down Inward tho living room, whence came tho shunting nnd tho luugliter. Don Mnrln de Cnstano. who wns fac ing thejloor, stopped In the midst of a ribald song to cryi "Clod ho praised! What's this I scur Tho others looked nnd then hurst Into merriment, for ncrnss tho Utter of cards nnd dlco nnd empty glasses they saw n dimpled girl nnd boy, ns like as two peas. They wero Just out of bed ; they wero peering Uirougti tho smoke, and blinking llko two little owls. "So! You nwnken tho housetiuld with your songs," some ono chitted Don Mario, "Two rhcrulis from heaven," another exclaimed, Hut thn father lurched forward, a frown upon his face. "What Is this, my dears?" ho Inquired, thickly. "Hun buck to your beds, This Is no plnco for you." "We lovo l.vungollim," piped the twins. "You must not let Don I'ablo have her If you please." "I.vnngellnn?" They nodded. "Wo lovo her, , , . She plays with us every day. , . . We want her to stny here. , . . She belongs to us." Accustomed as they were to prompt compliance with their demands, they spoko Imperiously; but they hud nuer seen a frown llko this rpon Uielr fa ther's face. "Oo to your rooms, my sweethearts," Don Estchnn directed, "Wo want I.vnngcllnu. Shu belongs to us," they chorused, stubbornly, Don I'ablo shook with laughter. "Sol Sho belongs to you, ch? And I'm to be robbed of my winnings. Very wdl, then, come and give mo a kiss, both of you, nnd I II see whnt can he done," Hut the children suw Hint Don Pub lo's faco wns strangely Dialled, Hint his eyes wore wild nnd bis magnificent beard was wet with wine; therefore they hung back. "You won your bet fairly." Ustebnn growled ut him. "Pay no heed to these buhles." "Ilvuiigclltia Is ours," the little ones bravely repcutod. Then their father exploded: The devil I Am I dreaming? Where huvo you learned to oppose mo? Hack your beds, bolh of you." Seeing them hesitate, he shouted for his wife. "Ho, there I Isabel, my love! Come put these Imps to rest. Or must I teach them manners with my pntm? A line thing, truly I Are they In be nllnwed to roam tho house at will and get a fever?" Mere mention of their stepmother's nnmo was enough for Itnsu and Uste bnn; they scuttled uway as fast an they could go, nnd when Donna lsnhcl came to their rooms, n few momenta Inter, fthe found them In their beds, with their eyes deceitfully squeezed shut. Kvnngcllnn wns cowering In a corner, Isnbcl hnd overheard thn wager, and her soul was evilly alight; sho Jerked the slave girl to her feet und wlui n blow of her pnlm sent her to her quarters. Then she turned her at tention to the twins, When sho left them they were weeping silently, both for themselves nnd for Hvnngcllnu, whom they dearly loved. Day was breaking when ICsteban Vnronn bndu his guests good-by at the door of his house. As he stood there Sebastian came to him nut of the mists of the dawn. He was half crazed from apprehension, und now cast him self prone before his maater, begging for Kvangeltna.
