The Little town of san a Arlos is so much like most other Little mexican towns that it hardly a it eds any careful description. Lying As it does in the heart of that vast wilderness of old Mexico a tiny Patch of Green on the face of the Sun Seo re lied Earth it seems insignificant to a degree and unt rally it is not Down on the Maje such towns rarely Are. Its few held bravely struggling against the heat and drought Are but sparsely watered by a Little Creek which Hows from a Ravine close by and which seems to disappear into a thirsty Earth a few Hundred Yards farther on. Kan Carlos itself is composed merely of a few Gray abode Bouses clustered together around a Square Little Daza and the remnants of what had once been a tiny Chapel built hundreds of years Ite fore by the old Spanish fathers and still standing a crumbling time worn Monument to their memory. Yet primitive As was the Little town Here Juanita had lived nil the Happy eighteen years of her life and right Here she was contented to stay until site should be Laid away beside her sleeping grandfathers and great grandfathers in the Little graveyard beside the Chapel for she loved the dear old place and possibly because she knew nothing of the great world beyond a she never even thought of leaving it. Thru. To it. There was another and a till stronger reason. Her father old Don Jose had promised her to the son of his oldest and Dearest Friend who had fought with him years before in the War with the hated americans and who had Lieen wounded in the Battle of Cerro Gordo before the famous old City of Mexico itself. Now secretly this was just what the Young people1 had desired. Pedro and Juanita had grown up together from childhood. They had Leen constant companions anti were they not the handsomest couple in the whole Broad Valley had not Juanita All her fathers Lund As her dowry which unite to those which Pedro owned make a twin the largest land owners in the Village it was certainly a most desirable match am the two old men congratulated each other As old men will who have seen their fondest Hopes fulfilled and tempted Many a sparkling cup to the health of Pedro and his fair Young Bride. Bur now Juanita w As sorely troubled. Everything had gone along smoothly As Ever until one Day something bad happened which bid fair to us set All their dans for the future. On a later Tain Bright morning there had Ridden up to the door of her father s hut one of a band of americans who were prospecting in the Gray mountains that Lay away Over to the West. He was a Fine looking Young fellow and for a Man who had been prospecting for two years under the fierce Sun of old Mexico he was remarkably fair and then his Blue eyes had a Frank expression about them which was far different from the e ver us Apoc ion glance which characterized the men of that quaint country. He wore the usual dress of men of his occupation Loose Blue Finnel shirt and Corduroy trousers tucked in at the top of i heavy hoots a red handkerchief knotted caries a around his neck and huge mexican spurs dangling from his heels. Juanita had been standing in the Little opening on the opposite Side of the House and had not seen him until he was almost beside her so that it appeared to her As if be must have suddenly sprung from Mother Earth. Harding had seen her about the Sanie instant she had seen him. And As he doffed his wide Sombrero and asked in imperfect Spanish to see the Don unconsciously his pulse quickened. Juanel was really a very a Beautiful mex ctn girl by far tie most Beautiful creature he had seen during the whole course of his stay in that dismally arid country and the expression on the girl s face flattered him not a Little. Still he had almost forgotten her w Hen he had finished bargaining with her father for provisions for himself and his men. Which he a lid at last succeed in getting Only at the payment of a fabulous sum. And w Hen he turned and saw her standing where be had left her he started and would have spoken had he not Felt the piercing Little Black eyes of Don Jose fastened Tiki a him. As it was. The old Man detected the Start and ordered his daughter hastily into the House. Ever since that time Juanita a thoughts had been in dire conflict with one another and late tint night when All was quiet in the Village she had crept aria Leftly into the Little Chapel and. Kun Eeling before the time worn image of tic holy Mother had prayed with tears streaming Down her Cheeks that she would direct Hei and help her to forget. But far up among the Hills of the great rang. That overlooks Han a Arlos the pros Ector w As standing alone whistling softly to himself Auto gazing Down into the Wride Dain at his feet. Some Little distance tie Hind him his companions Lay sleeping and on a Flat Rock which an swered for a table some one Ltd overturned the Coffee pot and a dark oozy Stream was slowly running Dow n the Side. One of the men moved a Little la his sleep. Harding started and looked around at him. Then As the Moon Rose slowly above the peaks behind him be turned Knock. The from his pipe wrap died himself up in Ida blankets and without More ado was sleeping soundly. Nearly a week passed and the feeling of restlessness which for a time had possessed Juanita had nearly lieu forgotten when again Harding Rode into san Carlos. Poor Little Juanita All her attempts to forget him had been in vain then for As she saw him come into the Plaza her heart gave a great bound for Joy and she flushed under her Olive skin to the tips of her Dainty lingers. The flush suited her dark face and heightened its Beauty thought Harding As. Dismounting he asked if Don Jose were in. As Luck would have it he Hud gone Over to see a Friend and the two fell into conversation. She was shy at first but this evident ease of her companion finally set her Las fear at rest and when the old Don did return they parted the in St of friends and with an understanding that they were to meet again Down by tin old Well hidden away in the Little Ravine outside the town. After an hours talk with her father Harding again left the House and., swinging himself into the Saddle Rode carelessly out toward the Hills. A mile or so from the town he made a slight change in the direction lie was taking and so Little by Little headed for the Ravine. Just As the Sun went Down Harding reached the Well and after turning his Tony to nibble the Juicy Blades of grass which grew around it. Threw himself Down to wait he had i Wen there perhaps two or three hours when the Bushes were parted gently and Juanita Cam toward him. She had slipped away Sho said while her father Ami Pedro sat smoking and had come As site had promised but she must hurry for the time was Short and her absent would Law noticed. It tie by Little. A tween questions and promising she told him All her Brief life history of Pedro of her father a wishes and lastly of her own new love for him. Ami when at last she could say no Inore she stood looking up at him. Her eyes full of the love she had just confessed until he took her in ills arms and kissed her. In the same instant they were startled by a sound i whited them. Don Jose his fare Pale with fury stood scowling at them. Cho kingly he ordered the girl away and when she was gone he turned to Harding. A a curse you a he said a you shall for this Santa Marin do America no a and disappeared As quickly As he had come. There was no mistaking that and the Young fellow knew that if be stayed where he was his life would not be Worth the waiting. Ills Llrath fear was for Juanita. Dot opening his revolvers in his Belt he mounted his Tony and Rode slowly toward san Carlos. Sosonte moments had passed in this Way and he had almost reached the Mouth of the Ravine when he saw a figure coming swiftly toward him. An instant later he recognized Juanita. The poor child was almost exhausted from running. A go go a she sobbed Quot they Are going to follow you. Dou Joe and Pedro they will kill you if you stay a no not now a she cried As Harding held out his arms to her. Quot they will find me Here with you and then a and then As the impulse seized her. She Flung herself int. His arms and sobbed As if her heart would break. She had not been a moment too soon for even As he spoke the sound of galloping hoofs reached them As Riding furiously their two pursuers dashed into the Ravine. With one Arm supporting the trembling girl. Harding coolly us slipped Bis revolver and waited. The mexicans were within thirty Yards before they saw him. And then As they opened tire with their Uncertain aim he slowly raised his own weapon and pressed the trigger. With a bitter curse on his lips one of the men pitched Forward from the Saddle and fell to the ground. One More shot a ame from the remain leg Man before the revolver s Mke again and Harding heard a smothered cry at his Side As the ride less horse plunged past him and vanished tip the Ravine. Then he pot up his revolver and turned again to Juanita a a a a a she was strangely quiet As she gazed up into his face and smiled. A quickly spreading stain Over her fait Young breast told him the reason at a glance. That last Bullet of Don Jose a Hud found a Mark and As the shouts of alarm reached them from the Vil Inge whither a a horse had Goue the Light faded slowly from Juanita a eyes and tit a closed forever. For some moments Harding did not move then be Laid her gently Down a lonely Little Willow kissed once the fair bloodless lips and mounting his Pony Rode out of the Ravine past the dead in mics of the two Mezi cans and with his head sunk deep on his breast turned his horses nose toward the Distant mountains on whose summits the last beams of the waning Moon still . A. Webster in Yale courant. Foil Nenie of the mad Mallah. Not much is know n about the mad Mullah a the old Man of India. He is mad Only in the fanatical sense. He first made himself notorious in the chit nil outbreak of 1wkv when although More than seventy years old he was among the Foremost in Energy and strategic ability. In the fighting at the Mala Kand he lost two lingers and afterwards the meal ers were buried with great pomp in the Bonair Valley and a shrine was erected to Mark the spot. The Mullah is a native of the Bonair country and wields therein a tremendous amount of influence this influence in Lias used in skilfully turning the enmity of the people in swat against the Khan of Dir in the or holy War. There is a feud of Long standing Between the Al Walls and the Kalian. The Kalian claims certain parts of upper swat and it intervals from before the British occupation tin til this Day. He has Leen in the habit of raiding the country. His agent a Kaka Kiel of the Kairat. Near now Shera. Had spread terror throughout the Valley but it is doubtful whether the Khan with All his boasts for he is a weak Many would is Able to main Tain his official position were it not for British support. The Frontier will not lie secure As Long As the Mullah is at Large but the suppression of the present outbreak is Likely to Lead to a Independent inquiry into the pretensions of the Khan of Dir with a View to a settlement of the old letter in a Aldfo be card.

In the islands there j Fago record Are about 2,000 telephones to a popu lation of 110,000, or one Telephone to every fifty two Nhah Tanta. On the Islan 1 of Oahu on which Honolulu la situated there Are i too telephones to a population of about 4a.oo0, or about Plant and animal plagues. Jute an interesting Story might Lee written so rot Day about the attempts which have then Wade to acclimatize strange plants and animals Ami then one to each forty one of the Popula a. To eradicate them. There is the famous Mong use episode of Jamaica. The Mongoose was introduced to kill the rats which ate the Cane plantations. Having done this and Multi plied very rapidly it proceeded to kill All the snakes and Lizard As Well. It next attacked the Birds learning to climb Trees in the process until the poultry and wild Birds disappeared. Then arose the or Ehl goes which the Birds used to keep Down Anil the Island groaned under n fresh plague. The ticks however finally attacked the Mongoose which began to decline the Birds began to reappear and attacked the ticks snakes and lizards were seen once More and in the end the Cane plantations were de Tion. The Telephone was introduced Here says a Honolulu correspondent in the latter part of 1k.h0 and so gtd became an established part of the business social and political use of the country. It Mav sound strange to use the word a a political in this connection but it is True in a Solter and literal sense for in every revolution that has been planned or attempted the seizure and control of the Central Telephone office has always been one of the first stint Egic move thought of. The Telephone is much More of a Public institution Here than it is in most places. Isolated As the islands Are the arrival of a steamship from a foreign land is of per a Mal interest to it eos ted As much As Ever by rats. It almost every individual. The government maintains a Lookout station on Diamond .11 end. From which approaching vessels in any direction Cau is sighted while still from Twenty to forty Miles Distant depending on the state of the atmosphere As soon As a Steamer is sighted Quot centrals is notified.

One of these plague that of the Gypsy Moth arose from six eggs which a collector had placed on a paper blow lug out of his window Ami it Lias Cost Massachusetts in which teds Accident happened Many thousand of Dollar a year Ever since whole gangs of men being organize to collect the larvae and Burn them in plies. Just at to present moment the subject is engrossing the government naturalist of Madras. Years ago some one introduced into Madras As a go Al idea the yellow flowering Cactus or Quot prickly now the prickly tear Lias become a nuisance and it is proposed to do a useful stroke by introducing the cochineal Beetle to destroy it. 1 it a. Bourne however has grave doubts As to the result for the right kind of cochineal refuses to flourish and the wrong kinds threatens to i be to it time. Like to York that All any individual neds to do is come a greater nuisance than the cacti go to the nearest Telephone put the receiver to his car and listen and lie will know what Steamer it is where it is. And if he has lire Here any length of time he can form a accurate judgment As to lib a Long it will be before the Steamer will be at the wharf. If the Steamer brings any striking piece of news of general. Interest a ventral Quot gives it to everybody who Calls up for a connection. In this Way the destruction of the Maine was known All Over the Island within ten non utes after the Zea land la which brought the news was at the wharf.
