COPyRf&HT, BY HARPER- AND BROTHERS. iK CHAPTER VIII. The Spanish Doubloon. On the whole, Pancho Cueto's plans had worked smoothly. After denounc ing the Varona twins as traitors he had managed to have himself appointed trustee for the crown, for all their properties, consummation for which he had worked from the moment he read that letter of Esteban's on the morn Ing after Donna Isabel's death. That there was a treasure Cueto had never doubted, and, once the place was his to do with as he chose, he began his search. Commencing at the lower edge of the grounds, he ripped them up with a se ties of deep trenches and cross-cuts. It was a task that required the labor of many men for several weeks, and when it was finished there was scarce ly a growing thing left upon the place. Only a few of the larger trees re mained. Cueto was disappointed at finding nothing, but he was not dis couraged. Next he tore down the old slave barracoons and the outbuildings, after which he completely wrecked the residence itself. He pulled it apart bit by bit, brick by brick. He even dug up Us foundations, but without the reward of so much as a single peseta. Fi nally. when the villa was but a heap of rubbish and the grounds a soar upon the slope of La Cumbre, he de sisted, baffled. Incredulous, while all Matanzas laughed at him. Having sac rificed his choicest residence, he re tired in chagrin to the plantation of La Joya. But Cueto was now a man with a grievance. He burned with rage, and his contempt for the boy and girl he had wronged soured Into hatred. In time he begun to realize also that so long as they lived they would Jeop ardize his tenure of their property. Public feeling, at present, was high ; there was intense bitterness against all rebels ; but the war would end some day. What then? Cueto asked him self. Sympathy was ever on the side of the weak and oppressed. There would come a day of reckoning. As if to swell his discomfiture and strengthen his fears, out from the hills at the head of the Yumurl issued ru mors of a little baud of guerrilleros, under the leadership of a beardless boy—a band of blacks who were mak ing the upper valley unsafe for Span ish scouting parties. Cursing the name of Varona, Pancho Cueto armed himself. He did nut ven ture far alone, and, like Donna Isabel before him, he begun to have bud dreams at night. One day a field of Cueto's cane was burned, and his laborers reported see ing Esteban and some negroes riding into the wood. The overseer took horse within the hour and rode pell mell to Matauzas. In the city at this time was a certain Colonel Coho, in command of Spanish volunteers, those execrable convict troops from the Isle of Pines whose atrocities had already marked them us wolves rather than men, and to him Pancho went with Ins story. "Ah, yes ! That Varona boy. I've heard of him," Coho remarked, when Ids caller had finished his account. "He has reason to hate you, I dare say. for you robbed him." The colonel smiled disagreeably. Cueto murmured something to the effect that the law had placed him In his position as trustee for the crown, and should therefore protect him ; but Colonel Cobo's respect Tor the law, ll seemed, was slight. In his view there was but one law in the land, the law of force. "Why do you come to me?" he asked, "That fellow Is a desperado." Puu cho declared. "He should be de stroyed." "Bah ! The country la overrun with desperadoes of his kind, and Burning crops is nothing new. I'd make an end of him soon enough, but nearly all of qjy men are In Cardenas. We have work enough to do." "I'd make It worth while, If you could put an end to him," Pancho said, hes itatingly. Then, recalling some of those stories about Colonel Cobo, he added, "There are two of them, you know, a boy and a girl," "Ah. yes ! I remember.'' "I can direct you to the house of Asensio, where they live." "Um-m !" Cobo was thoughtful. "A girl. How old la she?" I worse. "Eighteen." "Ugly as an alligator. I'll warrant." "Ha ! The most ravishing creature in all Matanzas. All the men mad over her." Colonel Cobo. the guerrilla, licked his full, red lips and ran a strong, square hand over his curly, short cropped hair, where sh "Ah, perfectly 1 were "You auy you know where they are living?" It'S less than a light's ride. the boy So reckon with." "How much Is he worth to you?" W5®iiZ Inqui red the so ldier, and Cueto There's no one except sat down to make the best terms pos sible. ''Do you think he received my let- 1 ter?" Rosa asked of her brother one j evening as they sat on the board bench by Asenslo's door, question to Esteban ; he had answered j It many times. "Oh, yes !" he declared. "Lopez' mes- ! senger got through to Key West." "Then why doesn't he eome?" "But. my dear, yon must be patient. Thluk of his difficulties." This subject always distressed young Varova ; therefore he changed It. "Come ! You haven't heard of my good fortune. I captured another fine snake today, a big, sleepy fellow. Believe me, he'll wake up when I set fire to his tall. He'll go like the wind, and with , every foot he goes away will go more j of Pancho Cueto'a profits." "You Intend to burn more of his j fields?" absently Inquired the girl. "It seems terrible to destroy our own property." Esteban broke out excitedly; he could not discuss Pancho Cueto with out losing control of himself. "Would you permit that traitor to fatten upon the profits of our plantations? I shall ruin hlm, as he ruined us." Rosa shook her dark head sadly. "And we are Indeed ruined. Think of our beautiful house; all our beautiful ] things, too! We used to consider our- j selves poor, but—how little we knew Î of real poverty. There are so many j things I want. Have we nothing left?" "I thought It best to buy those rifles." 1 the brother murmured, dropping his J It was one chance In a mil It was a familiar eyes, lion." "No doubt It was.

Besides, of what use would money be to us when we have no place I to spend It?" "True ! mused aloud : "I wonder If Cueto found the treasure? If only we had that—" ( "He didn't find It," Esteban declared, positively. "I"—he hesitated—"I think I know why he didn't. I think I know i «here it Is." "Where Is It?" breathlessly Inquired the girl. After a furtive look over his shoul der Esteban whispered. "In the well." j "lÿu're Joking!" "No. no ! Think for yourself.
