CIUDAD JUAREZ, MEXICO. ! n i i n i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i.i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i m Saved .By S A Thrilling Days Before the Mexi can Central Railway Was Built- Written for The Herald by Paul F. Hunter. "It's wonderful; nay more, it Is mar velous, miraculous. Why a hundred burros could never pull such a load. Not even a hundred of the best horses in the state of Chihuahua. Come, my friend let us instantly depart. Of truth it is the work of the Evil One himself, and to remain longer would be to endanger the welfare of our souls. Let us never have railroads in Mexico." Don Enrique was a provincial Mexi can gentleman who had journeyed from- his far away ranch to the frontier town of Paso del Norte (The pass .of the north) now Juarez, where he was persuaded not a little against his will, to accompany a friend across the river to El Paso, on the Texas side of the Rio Grande, there to view wonders be ing wrought by the Americans. The first railroad to enter El Paso had just been completed, and he saw for the first time in his life that wonderful machine, a steam locomotive. Its strange noises filled him with alarm; the foul smoke pouring from its stack almost strangled him. and awestruck by its wonderful strength, he finally gave expression to his emotions as shown alove. He turned a deaf ear to the laughing remonstrances of his friend, meanwhile piously crossing him self, and insisted upon immediately re turning to the Mexican side of the riv er: there he felt they would be safe from the malignant Influences of the dialMlical machine. And. upon arriv ing in Juarez, he lost no time in start ing back home, but it was with a heavy heart: he was oppressed with the fear that he had committed a heinous sin. A few months later he was informed that a concession had been granted to an American company for the construc tion of a railroad in Mexico, whereup on he held up both hands in speech less horror. Regaining the use of his tongue, he denounced the impious gov ernment of his country in terms' both vigorous and picturesque, but that ac complished nothing: and when the en gineers who located the line of the load entered the bounds of Las Deli cins he used all the diplomacy at his command to turn them aside, but to no effect, for the road was surveyed to pass within a mile of his own house. In due time the graders came, a mot ley crowd of rude, rough men who laughed in his face, and with many an outburst of impotent rage he saw them tear an ugly trench across, the breadth of Ias Delicias. Then came the track layers, and he raved and stormed like one beside himself as the lines of glit tering steel crept up to and past his house: and he crossed himself in pious horror at the sight of the telegraph lines, lie was not the least mollified when the railroad company paid him a good round sum for the right of way across his property, and rejected with scorn the annual pass that was tender ed him. "No. no senor." he exclaimed indig nantly. "I was powerless to prevent this desecration of my beloved country, but I did what I could. As yet the in famous government has not enacted laws to compel me to patronize your railroad, and until that is done neither I nor my family nor even my servants shall imperil their souls by going near your trains. Take back the pass to those who sent It. and tell them that I. Enrique del Toro do execrate it and them." Don Enrique's opposition gave the officials of the road but little concern; his was only one of many cases. Never thHess it was decided to propitiate him by establishing a station convenient to his use. and a neat frame building was erected not far from his hotise. When the time arrived to select a man to have charge of the station. Hob Evans, a man who was a thorough rail roader and with a reputation for cool ness and nerve, but utterly lacking in respect of Mexicans, was chosen. He was not the man to make overtures to Enrique, most decidedly not. and Don Enrique would have repelled such over tures or friendship if they had been made. Weeks passed with each seem ing to be insensible of the others exis tence: but there were agencies at work that were destined to soon break down the barriers between hem. One morning a vaquero galloped up to bring Enrique the terrifying news that a large hand of Apache Indians had swept down from the neighboring mountains, destroying everything In their path and who were headed that v.iv. Many years had passed since the Indians had raided that country, and so Don Enrique del Toro was utterly r.nprepared for them. "God of my soul, what am I to do?" Story of the he groaned. "We are too few to resist them. t We must fly. but where? Oh, my -wife, my daughter. Truly it is an evil day that has come upon us.' We must fly from Las Delicas. but where can we find safety? There are no sol diers nearer than Chihuahua, and of truth the Indians would overtake us before we could go so far." And the poor man wrung nis nands in despair. 'You forget the railroad Don Enri que." the vaquero auswered. "Let us hurrv to the station; a train may come at any moment, and all the Indians in the Sierra Madre could not overtake that, it moves with great swiftness." "The railroad is a device of satan for entrapping our souls." Don Enri que replied. "And are the Apaches not satan's own imps?" the vaquero rejoined with respectful insistance. Don Enrique was loath to surrender the cherished policy of non-interference with the railroad, but his wife and .daughter promptly championed the vaquero's suggestion, and when two women beset one poor man. that man has but one course to follow. He yield ed, and immediately his household be gan its flight. Pell mell. shrieking, and gesticulating, they poured into the station, surprising Evans into sneech lessness. and Don Enrique, his simple mind agitated no less by fear of the clicking telegraph instruments than bv h8 apprehension of the blood-curdling norrors or an Apache raid, attempted to explain tne cause of their coming. He spoke Spanish, the only language ne Knew, and his excitement caused his words to pour out in an unbroken stream that was wholly unintelligible to .vans. who could understand Span ish only when It was spoken slowly and witn careful enunciation. Mexicans always amused Evans when they did not disgust him. Their theatrical display of emotion, their ef fusiveness, startling gesticulation and comical grimaces when excited were to him all that the antics of a cage of monkeys are to the small boys. In puzzled amusement he sat staring at uon Enrique, letting him talk away an til exhausted, and then coolly inform ed him that he had failed to catch his meaning. Don Enrique gasped with despair; wnat could he do to arouse this thick headed American, he wondered. A huppy thought occurred to him. Grasp ing h.vans by the arm he dragged him to the window. "Mira. senor," he cried, pointing to the west, where number of slender columns of smoke were rising. "Indios. Apaches, mnchos muchos. Evans was a frontiersman, and his n-ind instantly took in the situation With a bound he reached his telegraph instrument and began calling Chihua hua, while Don Enrique drew back from the devilish machine as far as he could. The Chihuahua office was prompt to respond, and the next mo ment an urgent call for soldiers went leaping over the wires.- There was im mediate excitement in Chihuahua; the fussy switch engine that was standing idle for the moment beside the tele graph office awoke with a snort, and darted to the far end of the yard, where it began hastily sorting out coaches. In hot haste a messenger was dispatched to the barracks; breathless ly he rushed into the office of the com ir.andant and the next minute there arose an angry snarling or drums and a loud, excited calling of bugles. Then came the pattering of many feet and the rattle and jingle of arms, a hasty caning or rolls and counting of fours followed by sharp, quick spoken words of command, and a column of swarthy, uniformed soldiers emerged from the barracks. Again a sharp command. and they sprang forward at the double quick, racing to the railroad station where a train was now waiting for them. Having seen the soldiers safely on lioard. the conductor rushed into the telegraph office, where he remained a few moments: when he came out again he carried a crumpled bit of paper, up on which appeared the words. "Run regardless." His hand shot upward in a signal tothe engineer, and. with clanging bell and the hiss of escaping steam, the train moved out. Anxiously the refugees at Las Deli cias scanned the western horizon. In that i direction an almost level Dlain stretched away mile upon mile to where it met a range of mountains that were velvety and blue with distance. Midway in this plain a cloud of dust arose, grew larger with every moment and drew nearer rapidly. Now a dense roll of black smoke appeared and as cended straight upward to lose itself in the blue sky. and an angry flame leaped upward beneatn it. Tne Apacnes were coming in a whirlwind of death and destruction. 'A Dins thev are hut little more than three leagues away." groaned Enrique. "What shall we dor "No need to fear or worry, senor."' returned Evans, who was sitting with one ear over his telegraph instruments and with exasneratiner coolness he struck a match and lit his pipe. "No need 10 worry, gaspea jiinnque. "Gr'.-at God. man thou art crazed with tear." Rut Evans did not renlv. did not hear K. n-nu Aifrivcfclv ahonrhpH tiv what the- (alamnll wnQ KAvillP PrPSPlltlV A lOOk' of satisfaction shone on his face, and he made a hasty mental calculation: "Inrilans ten miles awav. and co mi ne ten miles an hour; soldiers sixty miles away and "Cussm Jimmy jonnson at the "throttle pulling them; result some Indians to bury in about an hour if Jimmy stays on the rails; hot times for- us if he don t. The cloud of dust kept rolling nearer, and a group of tiny black specks came into view at Its base, specss mat in creased in number with every moment and that grew larger, took form, and developed into galloping Apaches. Nearer and nearer they came and the sobbing, praying, hysterical Mexicans relinguished all hope of mortal aid. but not. so with Evans. Leaning far out of bis window he was watching the track, end presently far away where the two lines of gleaming rails seemed to meet in one. he caught sight of another f,pcft that was sending aloft a plume of inky black smoke. "Fireman's working like the devil," he mused. ' and Jimmy has got her wide open, end coming down a one per cent grade. oo. ain't he a bird?" Now he looked at the Indians and a look of concern s--!o into his face? They were getiing tiangerously near. Going to his desk he took out and cocked his six shooter. It held five loads and he hastily placed a shell in the sixth chamber. One load fr each of the women if the wovst should come: far better death for them than cr.pture by the Apache-s he thought. Glancing at those poor creat ures who were huddling together im the corner of the room, ne nouceo ior the first time that one of them whom he took to be the daughter of Enrique. was possessed of more than ordinary b auty, and he trembled at the thought that, his might be the hand tha. must end her life. The Apaches were within rifli ran?e of the station, and the rapid po.icc'ins of their horses hoofs were distinct ly hcard. when the rails began to vibrate and hum "neath the swiftly turning Vvhtels. The next minute with a deaf- euing roar or escaping steam, ana witn every wheel sliding and sending show ers of sparks from the rails, the tiain bearing the soldiers swept up to its station and came to a stop. Stentorian commands rang out, followed instantly by rattling and c racking of locks ant a thunderous Volley came from the car wiacVows. vt, a f . mrica tf tne Anarhen WiR- J. .1 Ulll J I V. ..uu ' .

A whoop and a wave of their leader" hand sent them flying back to th- mountains, and the soldiers, quickly pouring fro mthe train started in hope less pursuit of them. Don Enrique was as one who sees a vision, so sudden a transition from dumb despair to a sense of safety stu-; pined him. With round wide open eyes, he stared a few moments at the Dying Indians, at the dusty soldiers above whose heads fluttered the flag of his country, and then in a sudden transport of Joy, rushed to Evans and clasped him to his arms. "My friend, my very dear friend." he cried kissing the surprised AmerU can, first on one cheek and then on the other. "Nay thou are more than 4 friend savior savior of my property,, of my family, of all that I hold dear. Thou hast " , "Hello. Say drop it; turn me loose. you old fool. D you. quit kissing me," sputtered Evans, speaking Eng lish, as was natural under the circum stances. performed a miracle, thou and thy railroad, and thy telegraph," Don En rique went on. not noticing the inter ruption and holding tight to Evans, who was struggling with all his strength to get away. Evans gave up and to prevent receiv ing any more kisses pushed forward his head on the Mexican's shoulder, his face was flushed with shame, and his eyes were rolling ludicrously from side to side, fairly speaking the disgust that he felt. "A Dio mi! I did oppose the building of thy railroad. I thougbt it the work of the devil, and I denounced the gov ernment for permitting it. But I was wrong I, "Enrique del Toro. do admit that I was wrong, and henceforth I am the friend of railroads. Of the tele graph, also. It has been the means of saving our lives and therefore cannot he. harmful to our souls. I am the friend of thy railroad, I repeat, and I will now accept the pass i once aia refuse. Come to my house my friend. It is thine. All that I possess is thine at thy pleasure." He was trying to kiss Evans again when a voice that shook with laughter called from me window: "Say, Evans: what's the mat ter with the good looking dangnter. ivt .-othoi- Visa her than the old man. I'll take her off your hands if you'll let me in your game." n von. and the daugnier ioo.
