Handy, that Jack ' Holies and I, a couple of boys, not yet 20 years old, were discharged In Val paraiso from the whaling bark Goleon da, of New Bedford, with a hundred and ten dollars apiece In gold "condors" In our pockets. All the romance of WhaIlng in the South Seas and Its at tendant dangers which had tilled our Imaginations when we shipped as green hands at the "l'.HMh lay," had been ef fectually dissipated by the greasy real ities of "blanket and hawse pieces," cutting up In the "blubber room," "down scraps" and "trying out," sup plemented by a ten hours' pull in the boats every other day, poor food, and rough. If not brutal, treatment, from the officers. So, as we stood that morulug on the Jetty, clinking the money In our pock ets and watching our old ship disappear In the offing, we felt, indeed, "nionarchs of all we surveyed." At last she was hull down, and turn ing away with sighs of relief, we clat tered once more up the Ill-paved street to the Consul's office, where we bad been paid off, and Inquired of bini sailor-like, and motioned her to lead and I would follow. A look of Joy overspread her face,, and she fervently murmured her thanks as she guided me up the dark and narrow street. Here and there some building was fantastically silhouetted by the moon, and among Its grim shadows 1 fancied I could see a dark form mov ing, but at the low, sweet sound of my fair guide's 'Tor aea, senor" (This way, sir), all my suspicions would vanish, and I felt heartily ashamed of myself aud hurried forward In her wake. Graceful as a fawn, she bounded lightly up the steps which led to the street above, revealing as she did so a beau tiful foot and ankle, and I, agile though I was, could hardly keep up with her. ranting with exertion, at last we reached the top of the plateau, which overlooked the town, and my guide gracefully waved her hand toward a light, like a star In the distance, and murmured: "Ahl esta la casa'" (Yonder is the house).

"We tiiiist resign ourselves to the In evitable," said .Tack, "aud the next question Is, Where are we solng to stop?" The Consul assured us that an Ameri can named Henderson kept the only decent place in town, outside of the roujjli sailor hoarding houses, and rec ommended us to go there. We found Henderson a good fellow, who gave lis a large room with two beds In It, anil after seeing our chests safely stowed away, we strolled out to look at the town, nud incidentally to get work. After walking about the city for an (lour or two, we descended to the first or commercial street to look for work. Kelng young, persistent and fairly well educated, we were lucky enough to find employment with two Kuglish firms, branch houses of London and Liverpool traders; Next morning we went to work, and for a couple of mouths our lives moved ou, tranquilly enough. In the evenings after supper we smoked our flgai'ittos, and managed, with the aid of an old grammar, to learn a little Spanish. Occasionally, on moonlight nights, we walked out through the town, but wu never went far, as Hen derson warned us Unit it was HQ un common thing for a stranger to be found In the outlying parls of the city with his pocket 8 rilled aud a dagger wound In his breast. One evening my superintendent dis covered that a mistake had been made In the outward manifest of the ship Lord I'aluierstou, and noting (hat she was ljiug "off and on," with her an chor atrip, ordered me to board her as soon as possibly before she squared away for old England, and rectify the jrror. So, without delay, I hurried to the jetty, embarked, aud In a half hour climbed up the ide of the Paluierston. My business detained me lunger than I had anticipated, and It was fully Q o'clock before I stepped to the side. As the tide was on the ebb, my boatman had to land me at the nearest poiut, and I figured that I had about four miles to walk home. It was moonlight, but here and there the dark shadows seemed to Invite the assassin, aud as 1 hurried ou, I cast many an anxious glance behind me. I had reached the outskirts of the city tiud was congratulating myself, when suddeulv, from under iu overhanging balcon," a woman darted forth and clutched my arm, crying out In piteous accents: I'or el amor tie plosl Senqr Amer icano! Por el amor de JMos!" (For the love of (lod, Senor American!) "Que qulere eonmlgo, Benorita?" (What do you want with me, lady?) I replied, as 1 stepped under the soli tary lamp ou the corner and looked at her more closely. She was dressed In somber black and the mantilla she wore was so drawn over her face that but one eye was visible; that single orb, however, shone with singular limpidity and beauty. She was evidently greatly excited, and as she went ou In her voluble Span ish, 1 gathered from the little I knew of the language that her father was ly ing al the point of death In a house near by aud she wanted me to, go with her to his assistance. Why she wanted me to aceonipuuy her, I could not un derstand; therefore I asked her why she did not appeal to her own people. She replied that she aud her father were strangers, who hud but recently come from Santiago, and that there were so many "ladroues," or robbers, among her own people that she dared not trust them, aud In a still more urg ent tone, begged me to go with her. Truly, "he who hesitates Is lost," for as 1 thought of Henderson's warning, the lateness of the hour, aud the worn an's singular persistence, and faltered, undecided, she dropped her mantilla, aud In an instant every scruple had vanished. The light from the.mooi Il lumined a face perfect In Its elalo beauty, aud as luuoceut as thut of tjie Madonna, and as I saw the girl's tar stalned cheeks (she was only about 1(1) and looked Into her beautiful, implor- miiie, advanced steadily toward the fen exhausted through the portan f I HotuleisuHi' home. Manatrlnir to crawl M up the step I staggered into the din-lng-roow, vrher Jack and Hendenon sat. anxiously awaiting me, and aanlt breartblesa Into a chair. Their look of astonishment were succeeded by those of horror aa Jack elclalrred: "My God, Henderson! Look at the blood!" Putting my band up to my fan I withdrew It wet with blood, and Hen derson, who busted himself In washing It away, disclosed a cut two Inches long where the knife had just touched me. Explanations- followed and as I ate tbe meal waiting for me. I told the strange adventure to my willing listen era. As I finished, Hendersou, who had listened quietly, as was bis wont. burst out excitedly: "This explains it all, boys. It s no longer a mystery!" Pressing hliu for his reasons, he went on to say that for the last two years foreigners had frequently been found, stabbed. In outlying and solitary parts of the city. The victims were Invaria bly well dressiHl, but as no money or papers were ever found upon them, in- relitigation had beeu of no avail. "But here's a clew which can be fol lowed up," said Henderson, "ami to morrow morning we'll consult the chief of police." Bright and early next morning (for we got but little sleep that night) Wi? repaired to the chief of police, and to him I told my tale, Henderson acting as Interpreter. The chief was very uiuch surprised and pleased by my Information, and after cautioning us to keep silent, dis missed na by saylug "we'd hear from him In a few days." Two days later the foreign element of the city was thrilled by another atro cious murder. This time It was a rich young Englishman, named Burton, who had come down from Lima to visit some friends, and who, after spending the evening with them, left about 11 o'clock for his hotel, which was only two blocks away. Next morning his body, robbed of all his valuables and papers, was found, floating In the bay, with a gaping dagger wound In the back. Burton's friends, who were rich and Influential, backed by the British Coa stil, made a vigorous attack upon the supine methods of the police, and at last aroused the authorities to some thing like activity.

The total value of the oiohard pindnct of the State for 1897 estimated at S3 1, 389,545. This total is divided aa follows. Citrus frnils, 13,860,000; prunes, $2,900,000; anea iruits other than prunes, 13.- 800,000; raisins, 13,275,000; decid uous fruits, 13,000,000; nuts, $600, 000; canned fruits, 7,0S4,S45. This is a good showing, but unfortunately tbe value of the crop it misleading when considered ae aa index if the profit to the grower. On this point the report says: "Comparing the value of Califor nia's production for th post season, It will be observed that tb orchard products of this bus ' are second only to wheat. With these values, In some ibstanoes muuh lower than usual, we show a valuable orchard yield, and it is to bo regretted that tbe grower should receive (excepting for citrus fruits) the smaller portion of the re turns, the great bulk of these values going to mske good the enormous ex pense of marketing the product. In the shipments of deciduous fruits under present methods, it is safe to say that ;afrigeration, transportation and charge of commission men will average from 75 to 90 per cent of tbe entite sales, to say nothing of material and labor in preparing shipments. At predent prices for oured fruits, the amount returned from pale thereof. pays bnt little over cost ot picking and packing, leaving no returns for in vestment and time of grower." WOMAN TO W0MN.

As the moon shone out In radiant beauty, my blood for n moment seemed to freeo li) my veins, for there, before me, Kk-tuiiiiig brightly In the moonlight, and winding like a serpent among the doddering crosses aud mouldering graves of the Pantheon, was the path that' led to our destination. The low-lying wall of the Pantheon lay directly In front of nie. and my guide quickly tripped up the steps which led over It, beckoning for nie to follow. Though loath to go further, yet the wondrous lienuty of the girl held me as In 11 spell, and step by step I advanced uutll I stood npou the top of the wall. As I looked downward 1 though I saw the gleam of steel beneath the steps, aud the shadow of a mau's form crouching there. I halted and called out to the girl: "Espera!" (Walt:) At that moment the moon was again obscured aud In the semi-darkuess (for there was no street lamp there, and now all my senses were on the alert) I felt, rather than saw, her form as she mounted the steps, nud reaching for ward, tcok my hand, saying, 'Torque?' (Why?) 'Torque no me voy!" (Because I shall not go!) I answered, sternly. As 1 spoke, her fingers clutched mine and with Incredible strength she strove to drag me forward, but, ignoring her efforts, I cast a final look downward, and this time I Baw distinctly (for the cloud had passed from the moon) a mail coining swiftly ami silently to ward the foot of the steps. With one glance at the girl, whose face was now transformed by fury Into that of a demon, I hurled her aside, rushed down the steps, every nerve strung to Its highest tension, nnd ran at my utmost speed toward the city. I heard a man's hoarse shout behind me, aud bud reached the steps which led down lutQ the city, lu safety, when suddenly I caught my foot, stumbled, and halt fell to the ground. Just as I fell forward something graed my cheek, searing It like a rcdhot Iron, and fell, with a ringing souud, on the steps far below me.
