Bui few words were spoken until the
party arrived at a spot where the valley
began to narrow in near the boundary
•f the ranche. They were now consid
erably beyond the Indian fires.
“There is no fear of our meeting with
any of the red devils now,” Sancho said.
“They know well enough that our.ln
dians would not venture to attack them,
and that there are no other enemies near.
A Quarter of a mile and we shall be at
the wigwam where the senorita went this
“We will stop there for a moment.“
Will said; “it is not likely that we shall
find anything that will give us useful
Information, but at any rate the horses
may as well have a ishofit rest there as
well as anywhere else.”
They had come fifteen miles now at a

cord that had been soaked in saltpetre

found the two Indians lying dead; both

On the ground lay a broken medicine bot

round the wigwam. “The basket is not

But It Was Too Late.
II fta the last thing they would think ot |
taking. My idea 4a that the senorita
came back here. I expect she came to
warn the Indians. She would, to begin
with, if she rode at full speed, have
distanced the ’Paches, who would not be
able to get through the herd, which must j
have been between them and her when
she first saw them. If she were half
way down the valley she might have been
here some minutes before them. Of
course", the two old Indians knew that
there was no escape for them, and made
no effort to avoid their fate. I expect
they had only taken that pudding and
medicine out of the basket when she got
back. Now, seeing that the basket and
all that was In it are gone, It seems to
me possible enough that the senorita. who
may have caught it up and ridden off
with it, knowing that she had a long ride
before her, and that through a country
where there are no posadas.”
"I hope indeed that it may be so. San
cho, for I have been wondering what she
would do if she were lost in these moun
tains. What would she be likely to have
put in the basket?"
"I handed it up to her. eenor, when
she had mounted, there were two bottles
of milk, a bottle of wine and a pile of
cakes. There were a few ether things,
but I did not notice what they were."
"I only hope that your idea is correct,
Bancho; it would be a great comfort to
know’ that she had enough provisions to
last her for two or throe days."
"I expect you will find it Is so, senor;

laughing as she Joined her father, who
was looking pale as death at the danger
she had been in. I have very little doubt
that It has been, as I said; she galloped

distance beyond tho river; when they
found at last that they had no chance of
catching her they might turn and come
back and cross the river and camp on this
side. By that time their horses would he
done for; you see, they most likely had
a long ride yesterday, ma>oe they are
traveling all night, ond, of course, it gave
the senorita an immense advantage that
her horse was fresh while theirs had any
how a great deal taken out of them t* fore
they set out after her. I should recom
mend that we should halt as soon as it be
comes light in some clump of trees and
wait for them as they come back. We
are pretty well matched In numbers, and
with the advantage of a surprise we ought
to be able.to wipe them out altogether.
We might go as far as we cun up the
valley to the point where it becomes a
mere ravine, before daylight breaks, and
our horses will be all the better for a rest
of a few hours. They will have gone over
forty miles since they left the river, and
we may probably have a very long jour
ney to do*again to-morrow. There is no
saying how far the senorita may have
gone, she would not know whether the
redskins might not follow all night, and
I should think that she would keep on till
daybreak, though, of course, she would
only go at a walk.”
“It is difficult to say what she Is mosl
likely to do.“
“It is Indeed, senor; if I myself were
In her place I should be puzzled. I should
reckon that all in the valley had been
wiped out. The redskins would assuredly
first make a rush for the hacienda, be
cause it was most important that they
should carry that before the men could
rally round and make a defense. I should
reckon that the redskins would remain
there for four or five days before they
had Jerked as much meat as they could
carry, ond that when they started a party
wouid like enough be placed in ambush
to cat ’h me os I came buck. I should
know that it was next to hopeless to try
and find my way down across such moun
tains as there are ahead, through which,
so far as I know, there are no tra ks.
and 1 am not sure that I should not push
on in hopes of teaching the Moquls, who
are peaceful Indians, as I hove heard,
with their village perched on the top of
hills, and having fiocks and herds and
being in all ways different from ail the
other tribes except the Ztrais."
“The redskins say that these people
were hero before them’, and that they
really belong to the tribes of Central
Mexico, and came from there long IWore
the white man ever set foot in America
From there one could travel north, strike
the Santa Fe trail, and possibly make
one’s way’ through safely, though the
Navajoes are pretty nearly as bad there
as the Apaches are here. Whether the
senorita has ever heard of the Moquls I
cannot say’, but if she finds that she is
on a trail she will follow it, thinking any
thing better than going back and falling
into the hands of the Apaches."
"Are there any other tribes she would
have to pass through on the way?"
"I think not. It is a great mountain
track, where even redskins could not pick
up a living. As for as I have heard, the
track from the ford loads through a series
of passes between lofty hills. It is not the
course of a river, and, therefore, there
are not likely to be any villages. I should
say that there would be forest on the low
er slopes, and we are sure to meet with
enough game to keep us."

trees in most places grew thickly, and

by bowlder* that had rolled down from
the hillside. At lest they came to a point
where the valley was but a hundred yards
wide. Here they halted, took off the
horses’ bridles to allow them to pick what
grass there was, and threw themselves
down, and most of them were asleep In
a few minutes.

tree. Ha had no inclination for sleep.
THE WCKMIiG EJETFS: SUNDAY. JUNE 24. 1900.
His thoughts were busy with the girl
alone in these mountains with an un
known country before her and a band
of relentless savages who might, for
aught she knew, be still pressing after
her. I< was difficult to conceive a more
terrible situation. She might lose the
trail, which was sure to be a faintly
marked one, and in some places indis
tinguishable save to an eye accustomed
to tracking. If so, her fate was sealed.
She must wander about till she died of
hunger and thirst. It was maddening to
be waiting there even for an hour or two
and to know that she was alone. As soon
as daylight broke Sancho sent four of
the men back to hunt for game. If they
did not come upon something in the course
of three-quarters of an hour, they were
to return. They had been gone, how
ever, ha \f. that time when the crack of a
rifle was heard, and ten minutes later
they rode back, bringing with thejm a
stag they had shot. Already a fire had
been lighted 100 yards farther back from
the camping ground. Antonio, had col
lected some perfectly dry wood for the
“There will be no smoke to speak of, 1 *
he said to Will, “and what little there
is will make Its way out through the
leaves. It is unlikely in the extreme that
the Indians will notied it, and if they do
they will think that It is a fire made by
one of our Indians.”
A couple of the hunters at once set
about skinning and cutting up the car
cass. They were to go on cooking it
until a signal was made to them that
the Indians were approaching. The
horses had now been collected, and the
men disposed themselves behind trunks
of trees, each with his horse a few yards
behind him. All being well-trained
to sumd still when the reins wrre thrown
over their heads. In front of them was
a clear space some thirty yards across.
After half an 1 our’s anxious waiting,
Sancho. who was lying with his ear t>
the ground, raised his hand as a signal
that he could hear 'he Indians coming.
The men from the fire r;n up and took
their places with the rest. The rifles were
thrown forward in readiness. All could
now hear the dull tread of the horses,
with an occasional sharper sound as the
hoofs fell upon rock. As the Apaches

denly checked his ho:se with a warning
cry, but it was too late.
Sixteen rifles flashed out, half the
Apaches fell, and before the others could
recover from their surprise at this unex
pected attack the vaqueros charged down
upon them. Hopelessly outnumbered as
they were, the Apaches fought desperately
but the combat was short. The pistols of
Will and Sancho were used with deadly
effect, and in a couple of minutes the
fight was over and the last Indian had fal
“Now. let us waste fio time.” Will said.
“Ten minutes must do for our breakfast,
then we will be off.”
"None of the party was seriously hurt,
and the wounds were soon bandaged. The
joints hanging about the fire were soon
taken down, cut into slices and four In
dians stepped from among the trees, one
of them being evidently a chief.
"You are breaking the rules." he said
to Will, whom he recognized as the leader
of the. party. "We shall lay a complaint
before the great muster "
Will did not answer, but Antonio, who
spoke their language fairly, replied, "Have
you not heard the news?"
"We have heard no news,” tho chief re
plied. "We heard a gun fire when we were
hunting two miles the valley. We
came to see what it was. Then we heard
many guns, tind not knowing what it
could be. hid out horses and came on."
"Then you do not know that there are
300 or 400 Apaches and Tejunas in the val
ley below, that the hacienda has been at
tacked and all within it killed, and that
the herds have been destroyed? So far as
we know, we alone have escaped."
The Indina* uttered deep exclamations
"W-hat was the firing?" the chief
"If you go on a hundred yards further
up you will find the dead bodies of twenty
Apache braves; they have been riding in
pursuit of Donna Clara, the daughter of
the fenor, who was fortunately at your
end of the valley, having gone there with
food and medicine for the old Indian of
your tribe who was too ill io leave with
the rest, a fortnight since."
*‘l mw her often then," the chief said,
"and this young brave"—and he motioned
to Will—-"he has often in our camp, and
the girl visited our wigwams and gave
many little presents to our women. Did
she escape them?"
"She did, but where she is we know
not. We are going in search of her. If
you and your warriors will go with us we
Fhall be glad, for your eyes are better
than ours, and could follow the footmarks
of her horse where we should see nothing."
"Teczumn. with one of his warriors, will
go," the chief said. "The other two must
go and carry the news to our people, and,
though they are not strong enough to fight
so large a force, yet they will not be Idle,
and many of the Apaches and Tejunas will
lose their scalps before they cross the
He fioke a few’ words to the three men,
who at once left, and in (n minutes one
returned with two horses. The chief had
already eaten two slices of deer’s flesh
and ho mounted and rode on with the
others, while hi follower waited for a
minute to eat tho flesh that had already
been cooked for him. Sanoho had
chosen the horse that had been ridden by
the Apache chief, and. without stopping,
they rode on until they wore a few min
utes later Joined by the other Indian. They
now pushed on rapidly, ascending the rav
ine, and on reaching the top Will saw with
satisfaction that high hills on both eid<s
bordered what was in fact a pass between
them, and that Hara must therefore have
kept straight on.
Tho chief with his followers rode a little
ahead of the others, Will with Antonio
and Rancho following closely behind him.
Once or twice the chief pointed down
to ’make on the rocks with the remark,
"A shod horse."
"That is all right." Antonio said "The
Indians do not shoe their horses, so wo
may be sure it was the senorita."
The* path soon began to descend again,
and in an hour from the time of starting
they emerged from the pas# within 100
yards of the river; the ground being here
soft, a well-marked track was visible.
"Mode by our people,” the chief said,
turning round.. "They often cross ford

time perfectly distinct, but It presently
became fainter. However, as the Indians
rode on rapidly, Will had no doulfi that
although he could not see the tracks on
the ground they were plain enough to the
eyes of the Indians.
“It is a mighty good job we have the
chief with us.” Antonio said, “the trail is
plain enough at present, but it is sure
to get fainter when we get into these for
ests they speak of. Probably U goes
straight enough there, but once among the
trees it will break up, as the Indians
would scatter t<\ hunt. We should have
lost a lot of time following it. Now we
have got these two redskin fellows they

The road, indeed, after passing over a
rocky plateau, dipped suddenly down
into a deep valley running up from the
river, *and extending as far as one
could see almost due east among the
hills. The track they were following
turned to the right at the foot of tlie
hill. For miles it was clearly defined,
then gradually I ©came fa nter as (he In
dians who hud followed It turned off in
search of game. The footprints o.f the
shod horse continued s raight up the val

to the left.
“It has been gong at a walk for some
miles,” the chief said, “and the white
girl has been walking b side it. I saw
her footpiin s many times. We shall find
that she halted for the night at the lit

It -must have bee i getting dark when
she at rived here. She must be a good
horsewoman and have a good horse un

to the hacienda.”
By the stream, indeed, they found the
place where Clara had slept. The In
dian pointed to spots where the horse had
cropped the grass by the edge of the
stream, and where it had at last lain
down near its mistress, who had, as a
few’ crumbs showed, eaten some of the

Antonio translated the Indian’s words, and
follow’ed the Indian on foot.
“Was the bear too much for the twro In

“If they had been alone they would have
fought it, but the chief was right in send
ing for us. It was like enough that they
might both have got badly hurt, and that
wouid have been a thing for us all.”
Presently the Indian stopped. It was
still twilight under the trees, but they
could make out a great gray form advanc
ing towards them. When within twenty
yards it scented danger, and stopped with
an angry growl. Almost at the same mo
ment n rifle flashed out behind a tree near
its flank. With a furious growl it turned,
exposing its flank to the watchers. An

PEERAGES IN AVBYANC&
A Thousand British Titles Awaiting
New York. June 22.—As one result of the
Queen's visit to Ireland the report has
been circulated that It Is her intention
to revive an ancient Irish title to which
a diaim has been laid by a Chicagoan.
Incidentally this brings out the fact that
over a thousand British coronets are
awaiting heads that can prove their right
to wear them.
That some of these titles are rightfully
the heritage of some of the leading fam
ilies in the United States, authorities ex
press little doubt, and probably there is
more than one unconscious citizen in com
paratively humble circumstances whose
name is entitled to a prefixed earl or
Beyond this, however,*a possible claim
ant must look rather to expend money
than to the inheritance of vast estates,
as by the British statute of limitations
all such have long since either passed be
yond reclaim into private hands or lapsed
into possession of the drown. It was re
cently officially stated that the largest
sum of money held by the Court of Chan
cery awaiting heirs was only a little over
$200,000. In this connection perhaps the
strangest story told within a recent pe
riod is that of the ancient Barony of Bel
haven. In the middle of the century a coal
miner of Lancashire, Scotland, named
Watson, found it necessary to occasion
ally visit a pawnbroker’s establishment in
Glasgow, with whose clerk he became up
on intimate terms. In the course of sev
eral chats the clerk, among other circum
stances of his life, intimated that he be-
lieved himself to be the lawful heir 10 the
Barony of Belhaven, then about to fall
into abeyance through the anticipated
death of the childless holder of the title.
At the time this information did not
particulorly Interest the hard working
miner, who, in due course, commencing
to find his way up to better position,
ceased .his visits to the pawn broker, an 1
consequently lost sight of the friendly
clerk. Fifteen years passed away, and
the delver in the earth found himself
instead the employer of thousands of min
ers. By his own ability he had become
one of the greatest coal property owners
in the west of Scotland. He was a mill
ionaire many times over, and, naturally,
then turned his thoughts toward social
advancement—not perhaps so much for
himself as for the soke of his sons and
daughters. He was particularly anxious
that the latter should marry Into the
Scotch aristocracy. With ail his wealth
this was a difficult matter to accomplish
in a land where pride of birth and demo
cratic sentiment strangely enough go
hand iri hand. It is not easy for a self
made native to form an alliance with 3
Douglas or o Campbell, who stands near
the chieftain of the clan. Pondering over
these matters he recollected the story
of the pawn broker’s clerk. The title of
Bel haven was one of the most famous in
Scottish history. Perhaps, after all, the
clerk was the rightful heir, as he bore the
family name of Hamilton.
Further reflection determined him to
discover If his old acquaintance was still
alive. This he succeeded in doing, finding
the clerk still in much the same position.
Mr. Watson again heard the story, and,
apparently being satisfied of its genuine
tenor, made what must have seemed to
the clerk a starting proposition. Mr.
Watson agreed to find the money to put
forward the claim to the title, which, if
proved valid, he would then endow with
an income of $30,000 a year, provided the
peer would undertake to marry one
of his (Mr. Watson’s) daughters
Needless to say, the clerk was willing
to fall in with such plans. The claim was
put forward, and after an expensive suit,
judgment was rendered by the House of
Lords in the appMlar.t’s favor. Then Lord
Be’haven married Miss Watson and en
tered upon a life of novel splendor, in
which everything was emblazoned with
core nets. It is doubtful, however.* If he
enjoyed much greater happiness, for fie’
was more than once heard to expre c s a
longing for a linan haddock or a dish of
t hall brose in place of the elaborate menus
’ of Garnock.
It was Mr. Watson’s natural ambition
to be able to speak of a grandson as the
future Lord Belhaven, but Fate took lit
tle heel of the and sire of the millionaire,
ironically blrsvng the noble coup’e with
seven daughters in succession, but never
a son and heir.
Thus when Lord Belhaven died a year
or two ago the title passed away to an
other branch of the family, though Mr.
Watson’s disappointment may have been
somewhat assuaged by being shortly after
created a baronet, and from the reflec
iton that he may yet live to take another
step and become himself a peer.
