In tlio rocky bnt pleasant little valley of the Rio Florido, in the state of Clii bnahna, not far from the ntntinn of Cor- rrjitot on the Mexican Cent ml railway, there mar be Been the miiis of what CO years ar;o was tho magninccnt manor lionwe or hacienda of n large rancho. There, too, wcro rained the atrong, thick bulls for Uio arenas of Clu limihua and the lower provinces of Mexico. The pateway to this once fa mous place, although dilapidated und thrown down, has not yet crumMed (nto dust, but still shows the marica of its former splendor. On tho left si lo of the entrance, about 800 foet distant from the broad road which led to the stately mansion, side by side, are two wooden crosses roughly fashioned out of oak loirs, on both of which with caro may MU be traced a rudely carved inscrip tion. Tho words are in thut crude Mexico-CuMllian lanfrantro common to tho country. That on tho right as yon face tho lino of what was ouco the fence sarroundinjf the grounds of tho luici--enda invites the passerby to offer: "Or.e avo tharia and a pnter nostor for the reposo of the soul of Ysabel Mora. who full by the hands of tho Indians on the IUj day of October in tho year 1W3, In tho flower of her youth and beauty." On the other: "llera lies Junu Maria Ortoza, nativo of , killed by the Indians on tho 1 1th of October, 1845. Christian, for thuxake of God, pray for him." Tho story of the young girl and young Twin who Ho under these rudely hewn crosses is a sad one and absolutely true. Tho rancho de Cadena is about half way between tho cities of Durnnso mid Clii linahua. It flourished 60 yenra ago under the careful innn.ige.nent of its owner, an nged Mexican known all over the region jis "El Coxo" (the gamo leg). He whs a widower, with a family of eight sons, each of whom was an expert in tho ex citiuff games of the country "Colea do toros," or the more cruel and barbarous pastime of "El gallo." "Colea de toros" in plain English is bull tailing thnt is, seizing the bull in ho ring by the tail and securing it un der the right leg. Tho rider then, by wheeling his horse suddenly outward, upsets the bull in the midst of hi i mnd career, tho hugo animal rolling over and over in tho tlnst, bellowing with pain and frij'lit. "El gallo," much moro bru tal, consists of fastening a rooster by the leg to a tree or to a picket driven into the ground, with its head and neck well .greased. Tho irimio is played on horse back, 11, ftaiting together, strive to reach the bird first, and seizing it by the neck try to break the strings that hold it and ride off with the prize. The well reased neck generally slips through the lingers of the first who gr.isps it, bnt as soon as ono finds himself in possesion ho rides off pursued by the rest, whose object is to recuo tho fowl. Of course in the exciting contest which ensues the bird is torn to pieces. Then the fortu nate possessor of the bleeding inorxels presents them to his lady love as a gago d'amour. : The eight sons of "El Coxo" wers con ceded to bo the bravest, the handsomest and tho best in handling the lasso of any young men in tho state of Chihuahua, Their experience from boyhood as va queros or herdsmen on their father's vast pastures had made them as used to sit ting on a horso its in a chair, and the character of tho fierce bulls which won raised on tho ranch expressly for the are nas of the City of Mexico inspired thetn with the bravo nature of the famous ani mals themselves. Residing with tho family was a young girl, a ward of "El Coxo," an orphan .and the danghter of a friend and class inato at school. Ysabel Mora was in 1S15 bnt 10 years old a very pretty, black eyed, black haired girl, the "toast" of both tho vnllcy of Rio Florido and of the valley of Nar.os. Her extremo love liness even had been the talk of the great fair held in San liartolomo. Escantille, tho third son of "El Coxo," was just CO, stood 0 feet 10 in his shoes, was as straight as an arrow and as lithe some as the reeds that grew on tho mar gin of the lagoons on the ranch. He was better educated than the rest of his broth' ere, both in a practical sense and in the usages of the best society tho republic afforded, as he had attended two or three terms at school in the City of Mexico, the great capital of the great nation to which be belonged, and which he be lieved to bo tho best on earth. Iu hi first bull fight after bis return from tho metropolis, he uiadu his apiiearauce in the arena in a most elaborate suit, faidi- loned from tho reigning stylo lit the can- i tul, creating a surpri.se among his own Bex that bordered npon jealousy and a furore among those of the oiiixmito.' Ho' listingnitihed himself further by throw, ing tliree bulls successively. Encatnilla-'s rival in good looks and ex. Tertue in the bull ring was his brother Juau Maria in fact, thero were ninny of the people of the Kio Florido, bota old vaqueros and young maideus, who thotiiiht J cat fur enrpuused Escumilluiu insul liter at hast if not in personal . beauty. I'o certainly equaled him in Lorn uiNUiliip, simply lacking perhaps summ of thut "brilliancy of execution" which i'.!-' i.u.i'la Lad rcciuirtd in the City of M'.úd. Before the refrito of til to Ca dena Junn Maria wm f.lvay9 tho firnt at El callo" and "Colea de toros," and had ver laid his trophies of Oto Rport at tho feet of tho bewitching Ysabel. At a "gallo" in DeceniVr, fonr months b;foro the arrival of Escantilla, Ysabel was wooed and in a measure won by the presentation of the remains of a gallant rooster at the hands of Junn Maria, who, his offering being well received, from that moment looked npon tho beautiful girl as his sweetheart. When, however, Ewamilla took np his abode at the luciendo, apiin, he, too much of an exquisite to work with his brothers and father in the great pas tures, finding plenty of time on his hands for courting, supplanted Juan in the af fections of the young girl. As Juan's nature was superior iu frankness and open heartodness, ho refrained from forcing his suit, and tho affair was con cluded by a day being set for tho mar riage of Ysabel nnd Escantilla. In honor of tho occasion it was deter mined to havo a grand bull fight, at Which all tho neighbors within a radius of 100 miles were to lie present. Tho morning lteforo the ceremony was to lto performed "El Coxo," with all his sons. excepting Escantilla, who rcmnined be hind to attend upon his affianced Ysalxd, started out Into tli great pastures for the purpose of driving in the iuiiuenso black bulls required for tho fcpnrt, while other neighboring rancheroi binned thei: selves in lmilding stout corrals in which to secure them until the timo arrived to lead them into tho arena. Toward evening, whilo tlr- mosquito grass lay cold antl gray under tho shad ows of tho mountains, Escamilhi and the happy Ysabel left their hammocks oa the wide gallery of tho house, where they had been resting during the sultry hours, to tako a wnllc along the main trail lead ing toward the rocky hills. When they reached a point half a mile from tho gato of tho hacienda, where a thicket of chapparal bountled each Fide of tho road, suddenly thero arose a croud of dust in front of them. "Hero come tint bull fighters," ex claimed Ysabel, as 'ie withdrew her waist from tha encircling arm of her lover; "let us go back to tho house." "Oh, no," replied Escauiilla, "perhaps they are uty father and brothers. Yes, there are eight; look!" But what the poor girl really saw, with her eyes aluiort .starting from their sock ets and motionh S3 with fear, as she rec ognized them now only a few hundred yards uway, was a band of Comanches, naked to the waist, painted horribly and brandiahing their lances. In a moment, heedless of tho helpless maid at his side, tho coward Escumilla turned and fled down tho trail toward tho rancho, shont iftg as he ran: "Los barbaros! Los bar baros!" In a few rods a horseman met him. It was his brother Junn . Maria. Ho had caught a young antelope with his lasso and woa riding ahead of his party to pre sent it to sabel. Trrs exclamation of the frightened Escauiilla and ono glauco np tho road showed him the danger the poor girl was in. Ho threw tho animal he was cravrying to tho ground, and plunging his spurs into the flanks of his horse dashed furiously to tho rescue. Alas, tho savages were already upon her! Ysabel, covering her face with herha:ids as if to thwart tho impending blov.- and recognizing Juan, shrieked out to her old lover, "Salva uie, Juan Maria, por Dios, salva me!" At that instant the lance of the nearest Indian pierced her heart, and in another her reeking sculp was swung exultantly aloft by tiro incarnate fiend. Short was his triumph. Almost bound ing through tho air. with ever ready lasso swinging nbovo him, Juan Maria threw tho open coil from his expert hand, and it fell over the Indian's head. As tho skillful thrower pulled np his bridle reins, heaily the savage tumbled to the earth. Then Junn had fearful odds to contend against. Received with a flight of arrows und unarmed except a shoi t, mbty sword, regardless of every, thing but to avenge the murder of the girl he deeply loved, ho attacked tho nearest Indian, and bringing him within reach of his arm cleft his skull by a master stroko. The others, terrified at the fierce look of tho bravo Mexican, keeping at a re spectful distance from him, assailed him with a shower of arrows, and in an instant he was bleeding from a score of terrible wounds. Still the gallant Junn fought bravely, hoping against hope, and was soon encouraged by tho shouts of his father and six brothers, whose horses were on the dead run to the rescue. The old man and his sons rode up in time to see Jaan fall from 1.1s horse, pierced by a feathered shaft jnrt above hla breast, "El. Coxo" and his boys fought with desperate courage to avenge the murder of YsaIh'1 and Juan. Half a dozen of the Comanches were soon utado to "bite the dnat," but two f the Mexicans also lay dead upon tho now reddened sod. The .aucheros eamo up iu a short timo from tho hacienda In" force, coiuitclling the Indians to retreat, but as night was now" upon them the Mexicans were obliged to abandon pursuit. On the ground lay the still quivering body of the unfortunate Ysabel and near her the two Indians killed by tho gallant Juun .Muria. Juan was quite dead, 20 arrows having pierced Kim. Two of his brave brothers were seriously wounded, and six of the savages were killed, be tides those who felj by the avenging arm of Juan. , Badly the bodica of Ysabel and Juan Maria were borne in tho darkness to the hacienda by the ranchero, whence both were buried next day, side by sido, ut the very hour when the marriage ceremony was to have been performed. Escantilla, ashamed of his cowardice, dlsapieared. It was supposed he went to the City of Mexico, married there and purposely kept the knowledjfo of Ids whureabonts a secret. New York Re corder.
