These were the days of which eh wrote to her friend Knuly: , "I Mem to be living in a kind of heaven up. in earth everything around me so beautiful, everybody so gtxxi to uie, that 1 appreciate it with an over-fulne- ta of the heart, and all the nn and trouble of the w.rld apparently removed.

Soon after this Dun Waiter's labor at the ruacin.'j came to an end. Then he disappear. 1, nd wm neither nen Bar fxard from ag ain for a oaaiden.U time.

He was much more direct in his talk on such a point as this. Indeed, in all matters involving a rough sort of execu-tiv- o ability, especially in the directions of greed and persecution, he was not lacking in spite of his foggy speech. The Senora del Prado and her daugh- - ter had already gone away in dudgeon. Tliis talk, in fact, broke up the group. Don Waiter and Amy went to the gar-den. It was in the great gardens that ,erbaps their pleasantoat hours of all' were spent. They passed along a bosky walk, opening into a sort of Pantheon of clipped foliage, in niches of which wore set Flora, Bacchus, Apollo and the like. The pr.th hence was narrow, and at the end of it you came, quite by surprise, npon cn immense, oblong fish pond, with a straight avenue of noble trws leading upward with a gentle undulation from its farther ?nd. At one side of the Dih pond were most ornate flower gardens; nn the other, extending its whole length, was a broad flight of steps with rows of broken columns along them, and at the top, little corner pavilions looking dywn over a miniature barranca. The couple sat down upon those steps, near the wa-ter. "When I first saw nil this," said Ami "I realized the enchanted gardens of Annida." In the fish pond were six little formal stone islands, which served as a place of support for roses. They wore to be readied by boats, high pooped, green and gilded, such as indeed might have been found iu the gardens of Arniida. Nor was all this too carefully kept; it was tieated in practical, every day fashion that but added to its charm. Somo of tho I.iscions superabundance of mango and guava lay rotting along tho terrace walks, aud appetizing odors coming forth from the corner turrets showed that they, too. were used for the storage of fruit. Amy had grown rounder and plumpei since coming to Las Delieias; her health, was better than before, and she had probably never looked so well in all her life as now. Her companion was diawn, perhaps, by some unusual appearance of bloom, to refer to it. "Yes," she said, welcoming the refer-ence brightly, "I got old Trinidad Jose to weigli mo on his scales the oher day, and tho result is, after calculating your kilograms into pounds which is no easy matter 1 weigh a good 140." 'JSo? really?" A Spanish girl would not have talked to him like that. There wis about her an entrain, a thorough fret loin of character, together with a range of intelligence to which he haft never been ieed in women, that contin-ually delighted him. "Oh, dear! I was such a thin, forlorn looking person," sho continued. "I had a cold one spring I believe they thought I would never recover from. It is not bo very long ago since my brother used to call me the Hag C:iby." "Rag Baby?" I don't think I under-stand." "I didn't suppose you would. Oh, a nerveless, boneless, limp sort of object don't yon know? I used to wear a very largo white necktio in a bow knot it was a fashion just then and my brother pretended that my head was tied on with it, ai d would full olf if I pulled out the ends," "Our Mexico has at least so much to commend it that it has done all this for you." ing electric currents along the mineral veins to melt out their content. I want to pierce to the central reservoirs of treasure. It is wealth like that which I j need; less will hardly suffice me." Amy was pained as by a certain earn-estness and genuine greed in these wild aud monstrous ideas. "Why do yon want so much money?" she ajked him. "To rival your Vanderbilts and As-tor- s, your great magnates of New York, he answered, turning it off, laughing. "But is there no way? Yon are to young yet. If you are discontented her, why not go Iwtck to your own country, where opportunities aud a career nat-urally await you?" "I want an incredible sum; I will never go there without it." "Yon do not do yourself justice in these ideas," she said, simply. They got np and walked on to a spot perhaps the most quaint and curious of all. The princely fjnuder of the haci-enda, fatlur of the present occupant, had spared no expensive caprice. He had built here, beside a wunu spring, a small pavilion made of solid blocks and columns of clear glass. This .'oquettish structure was but the bettor tor beiug greened end broken by time. "1 often come hero in the afternoon, when it is in slnde, and sit eitiier iu it or on the bench beside the spring," said Amy; "it is a favorite place of mine." It was not to be wondered at. The view, too, had its poculinrclniriit; a vitta had been cut through tho tms, and bo-fo-the eye was spread like a dream a prospect of agreeable solitude, ending in tho vast, twin snow crowned peaks. "Try it now, in the sun," begged Walt-er; "let me see the effect." His companion, amiably complying, mounted into it and stood in the center. Opalescent aud silvery gleams fell upon her and enhanced the brightness of her hair and the distinct blue of her eyes. Sho was like some priestess of light in her tj'inple, or there was a mysterious effect about the whole, like a flame burn-ing in the sunshine. 'The basin is a singular one," said she, coming down. "Sometimes, as I tit beside it, it tubs and flows before iu very ey-- I have heard thera say ita level can be affected even by the human voice." "Some of tho water is that coming down from the hot springs above, but it una much more than their singulari-ties." "I havo not yet seen those springs." They started to go to them, when Trinidad Jose, lately detailed to look af-ter that part of the place, came along with a large dog, that was much his companion, trotting at his hcei "What is his name'" asked Amy, stop-ping as they passed to give the animal a friendly pat. She had a pleasant word for everybody, by which sho had gained already no small popularity on the es-tate. The man, before replying, looked cautiously this way and that, and then at both of them in a searching way that seemed to reassure him. " 'Corcovedo,' " he answered. " 'Corcovedo?' " rejieated Walter In surprise. "If you despise a man in this country," he explained to Amy, "the most insulting thing you can do is to call an animal after him." "I wouldn't want to have it known," said the gardener. "Do' you like the Jefe Politico?" he asked. "No, I think him an odious man," re-- , turned Amy. j "Ah, that is it, you don't find liim an ' admirable person? Well, I think him a dovil and the son of a devil; that is why I call my dog after him." "But such a nice dog' It isn't fair to him." "I can't help it; it's the only way I have. 1 just call him Corcovodo over to myself a few times every now and then, and it doe me a world of (food. The old scouudrel don't know it; if he did he'd be too strong an enemy for me." Ing bvu used to anything else," Raid Dou Tftlter. Aud he was led into questioning tier with interest on the appearance of thi'-g-in the United States, about which his recollections of infancy were so exceed-in-vague. He waa evasive, and checked himself, however, when there seemed any approach towards a need of declar-ing who his connections were there and under what circumstances he had left it. They also rode together a good deal about the hacienda, the young women sometimes accompanying Walter, and sometimes repairing, under proper guard, to the curious points some dis-tant corral, or an aqueduct, or an irri-gating pond, large enough for a lake, where he was at work. Amy hud looked forward to mounting into the saddle in which she had had but slight experience with a kind of longing dread, but, the ice once broken, she made up iu courage what she lacked in skill. Young Walter thought her masculine looking English habit, with her high silk hat, from which floated a blue gauze veil like a light smoke in autumn, even more becoming than her costumes of every day life. They two, as Americans, to whom all things are permitted, were allowed to be together with more freedom than might otherwise have lcen the case. The fam-ily thought good to wam Amy on the score of Dou Walter's rather improvident character, and that he would not be at all a good match in the pecuniary way, but they were reassured by her smile, and felt that this companionship was only another of her ways of enjoying with a keen zest tho novelty of the country. Besides this, too, their atten-tion was drawn away from it by some-thing of especial interest to themselves. The Jefe Politico, Senor Corcovedo, it appeared, had been taken by the looks of Beuorita Luz, young as she was, and, though he himself was a widower of even more than middle age, was conung there to pay her his court. "He is too ugly; he has odious high cheek bones and great yellow teoth like a gorilla, and he is stupid and without manners," objected Senorita Luz, aroused on this score at least to plenty of vi-vacity. There were traditious, too, of repul-sive cruelty he had used in the wars. He was an ignorant, self made man, who had pushed himself well to the front and featherf 1 his nest in the politi-cal troubles. SMI, he was a person of much consideration, he stood high with the govrtmTKiiit, beiug sustained by the favor Qf pi eminent persons of the more radical ?ring at Mexico, and Ueu. del Pradft Jioved by grounds of worldly policy, thought well to give ample op-portunity for his suit, and to seo if the reluctance uf his dtiJtrliter ml.'tkt not be evereome. I n.e aaugnter, too since n. wa.i her first suitor, even though a re-pulsive one was not so wholly uncivil still boiling and bubbling in the gorge, that it is still an active crater, as it were," said Amy. "Seriously, now, it occurs to me sjieaking of treasure as yon were that places in which such vi-olent turmoil is going on ought to be promising. It seenis as if nature ought to throw out there complete specimens of everything she piwsessee in the heart of the earth, including the most valu-able of all." "It's a rather striking idea, but it must have been tried yes, I'm sure it has been tried. My recollection it that, though volcanic districts are rather favorable generally tb the precious melals, the active craters have not yielded anything of consequence." j "Have you been to the gorijeV j "No; and yet I hardly know why I Haven't, since 1 have often been hard put to it for excitement." " 'Eicitemeut;' are yon snre yon make tho most of yourself?" asked Amy, tak-ing him to task. "Do yon know they give you something of a bad character?" she said, frankly "consort iuc with un-principled revolutionist, and the like." "They mean Capt. Perea. of course," takiug it quite good uaturedly. "The general here docs not like him lieramw iie did not belong to the same political faction. I can truthfully i I have never seeii anything wroug with Peres. Kor my part I find no great difference le-- ween the factions; all alike we ready to tear their country to pieces it an uotice. My small experietin wit', revolutions has made me aeqc'UUiod with somo bold fighters aud good iport-tne-that's all." "And you take iirt in Uiem? la this a career for a young man who ought to take a leading position?' "What is the use of trying under such a state of things, where first one ambi-tious chief upsets the government, then another? There is no stability, no cer-tainty. They promise us peaceful times at present, aud that more railroads are to be built; pcrhaiu some opportunities will open in them, but 1 think it will be long enough before we shall see them, and they will hardly furnish place to all."'- "Then why uot go to the I'nited Statoa, I ask you ouee more?" "It takes much money to live there among you American Cnnsusee." Such perverse answers as this tended to confirm the account she had heard of him as an unsettled, improvident person. But when have women required that those in whom they interest themselves should MMHa nil the cardinal virtues. Siiring a disappointed look un her face, Wal:er added, however, as they were going down, "It is for a purpose worthy of your approval; I have a great burden psting upon me." lie was accomplished in woodcraft, (n a season of leisure he headed an ex-peditionIn which all the children of tho house were included to explore the 'oods on the slope behind the hacienda, tie put a tltarocte in his belt, the half word, half kiokle of the country, useful to open a path, cut an orange or coffee stick, or lop off an orchid for whoever wanted it. He hud the gift, among others, of making himself agreeable to tho children, and they enjoyed the day highly. They likod to run, to shriek, to pretend to be afraid. "Los torus! los toros!" (the bulls) they would cry, finding purely imaginary re-semblances to some fierce animal, and then Uar bock madly to bury their faces in the skirtsof Amy or Lni!. Walter pointed out tbn mahogany tree, the white camphor, the quinia bush. "It is like a growing drug store," said Amy. "How do you come to know so much about them all? For my part, I am surprisingly igmrant of the country, nd it U now too lal to learn." He did not tell her that his father perpetrator of the greatest defalcation of his day, which had shaken the money centers to their depths had turned, in his refuge, to such pursuits, and mad him the companion of all his walks, im-planting thus a taste whioh his later manner of life had served to coufirm. He turned the queetion aaitl in some easy way, as he often had occasion to do. They grouped themselves for luncheon on a large rock, near which a cool brook ran forth, and the children went and wided merrily in the water, mingling their laughter with its bubbling. . CHAPTER IV.

Meanwhile, Amy had not forgotten the sweot looking young nun she had met at Cuernavaca. This was a figure by whose appearance aud unusual history she had been particularly struck. Senora del Prado took her to see the embroideries of ,the and she sometimes turned there alone. They lived in a ileasant, one story house, of the rural sort, in tho hamlet of Campo Flondo, not far from tho hacienda. Their prin-cipal room was of large size, brick floored, and cool, and looked out on one side into the "T;.S3 grown, principal street, and on tho "other into a charming, simple garden. .. Amv, whoso imagination was easily kindled, said to Deatriz, as she sat there with the latter one day, learning a new lace stitch " How charming and peaceful your life is! It seems ideal. Sometimes lean-no- t help envying you." "Ah. no; 1 am very unfortunate. 1 am neither of the world nor out of it, returned the recluse, sadly "How many of its distractions and temptations are thrown in upon us bore!

Way, n, ft? a Ud silver raUing across and golden candlesticks high-t- h th I am and as thick through the While they were still smilyig with amusement at this simple way of reveng-ing one's self npon an enemy, the young brother Angel came up. He had the hobby of chemical experiments pres-ent, and he was in search of Tton Walter, to go with him to the upper source of the spring, and help him find among the mineral substancos, incrusted abont those waters, somo proper specimens for asalysis. Accordingly, they all wfint on togeth-er, following the little stream, which smoked, over a clear bed, among thickets of luxuriant tropical plant. At the up-per level nature, as usual, had been much supplemented by art. The springs brok out at the foot of a cliff formed of col nmns like those of Fincl's (Jave. A por-tion of the upper part of the cliff had been rudely carved in the shape of a hu-man face, and had a balustrade and cy-presses on the top. The waters hot, cold and impregnated with various min-eral elements ran out upon a terrace, with heavy ramps and stairway, and were led along to a place where bathing tanks, discreftly veiled with charming shrubbery, were arranged. "Here, indeed, one may rather appre-ciate that he is in a crater. This rock is a part of the denuded wreck of tb very heart and nucleus of the eld volcano, wind and weather having ground all the ret to powder. It came up molten hot in its time; that's what made it cool off in these hexagon columtm. You can find them of all sizes, some as fine as a needle." "And haven't the hot springs some-thing to do with those same internal fires?" inquired Amy, her voice not quite free from a tra of anxiety. "There can't lie much doubt of it, con-sidering the peculiarities thrty present Or they may be only indirectly connect-ed with it through those on a far greater scale in the Barranca of Cimarron. The bottom of toe Barranca, 1 believe, is higher than toia point, and possibly they work through. At any rate, the luine formation belongs to the two placee; the same rent made in the moun-tains when the Barranca was formed, tapering off to an infinitesimal crack, can be traced over the country to very near here."
