This hill xvqs marked on Xibalbav a map as l»eing the sit* of an underground reservoir, known as a cue va, whence ill the old days, w-hen this place was inhabited* the In-; dians draw their supply of water in the dry season from deep down in the boxv-els of the earth. That this particular eueva existed was proved by the fact that the ancient | road, which here was plainly visible, tan through the ruins of a large town xv hereof the insulation must once have been supplied by it, but when Zibal- ! hay and his daughter slept here on their downward journey they were spared the necessity of looking for it by the I discovery of a rain |>ool in the hollow 1 of a rock. Now, however, no rain hav- ' ing fallen for xx ceko, after we had eaten and drunk such water us remained in the water-Lkins, we determined to seek I f*»r the eueva in order to refill the skins arid give drink to the thirsty mules. Accordingly we began toexamiuethc ! r*K*ky hill, and presently found a stone archway now nearly filled tip with soil and half hidden by thorn bustics, which we judged to be the entrance to the eueva. Having provided ourselves with torches we lit four of them, and I led the xx ay through tho hob* to find myself in a eave where a great and mysterious xx md blew and sighed in sudden gusts that almost extinguished our lights. I- ol lowing this cti vc xxv came to a hole or shaft, at the end of it, which evidently led to the springs or pools of water. This shaft of unknown depth w as a I in ost if not quito as smooth and perpendicular us though it had been hollowed bx the hand bf man. hut the strangest thing about it was the terrible stairway that the ancient , had used -to approach the water, which consisted of a double row of notches, eight oi ten inches in depth, cut in the surface of the shaft.

He groaned and was silent for awhile, Rnd then said: "It would have been kinder to let me me of the poison, for this torment of thirst is more than I can bear.” “Can we try the eueva?" faltered Maya. "It is impossible,** answered lier father. "We should all be killed.” “Yes, yes,’’ repeated the senor, "it is impossible. Hitter that one should die • han all four." I* ear Hot, I said to the senor, “it is the poison that lids dried you up, but thirst xviii not kill you so soon, anti presently you will feel ii less. Oh! that x\e liad medicine here to make vou sleep!” Ho lay silent for awhile, making no answer, but from the workings of hi.-1 lands and face xve could see that he suffered much. "Maya," lie said at length, “can you find me a cool stone to put in im mouth?"    J She searched and found a pebble, w hich he slicked, but after a time it fell from his lips, and ive saw that it was as i dry as when it entered them. Then his j brain gave way, and he began to rave huskily in many languages. Ai*' jou devil? lie asked, "that you suffer me to die in torment for the want of a drink of water? Why do you stand there and mock me? Oh, have pity and give me water.” For awhile we bore it, though perhaps our agonies were greater than Ii is own then Maya rose and looked at bk face, It was sunken as though with a heavy illness, thick black rings had appeared beneath his blue eves, aud lo-hps were flecked with blood. I can endure this no more,” she said in a dry voice. "Watch your friend, Don Ignat to.” ou are right," I answered; “this is no place for a xvoman. Go and sleep yonder, so that I eau wake you if there is need.” She looked at me reproachfully, but went without ansxvering and sat down behind a bush about thirty yards away Here, it seems for all this story site told in-* afterward, and for the most part I do but repeat her words—she began to think. Only one tiling could save him-— water. In the depths of yonder hill, within a few* paces of lier, doubtless it laj’ in plenty, but who would dare to seek it there? Aud yet the descent of the eueva must be possible, sine,* the ancients used it daily, and xvliy could she not do what thee had done'* Yes she would try it!
