The storv, both us a. narrative of wild life in South Ami'.riea and as an illus- Iration of romance in real life, is well worth the telling-. For obvious .rc.a- >'0n.s, however, (ictit.ious-nn.mes of per- sons'nnd places are substituted for the real ones, the facts not being personal to myself, but relating <r> parties who arc siiil living. To begin at the beginning', the story I am about to roltiie eoinincnces with the arrival of Miss'Kva.Cunningham ixt the I'hiya del Oro mine, in Peru, which .was cJiicllv owned liy her father,TTran.i Ctit'ivnu'liam, and, as may well be supposed, the m.parition of a heartv onl ivithal beautiful your.g AIHCUCCVI girl at that out-of-Uie-world spot created quite a commotion amonglhe engineers r.nd other white employs nt the "dig- r ''T!ic iime was not well chusen for a voun" girl to travel through the interior of tlie republie, 'foi- the war with Chili had not long been over, and the. country was overrun with bands of brigands hailing from the disbanded national army. However, the party arrived safeiy, and we gave them a right heartv reception, little dreaming of. the tragedy'that was impending. So far the brigands had not molested any of tiic mining settlements, confining their ii'ttention to travelers. Even Castnvan old'professional brigand, who had lately raised u. gang and was then terrorix- iny the counlry, had not attempted anything of the sort. The discovery came upon us like a bolt from the blue, therefore, when, on younjj lady would be killed. The intention was to kidnap the father, but, he having met his death, the daughter waa talc en instead. We were all pretty well paralyzed by the horror of the incident, and quite bewildered as to what.steps should, be taken. To fol^w the bandits was impracticable, for they were well enough mounted, while, although we had mules enough, there was but one horse on the place. To sit down and wait until the: demand for the ransom cnme appeared to our excited minds, both cruel to.the captive girl and cowardly. But what could we do? The question was solved by Gaston Lafague, a young-French civil engineer, wlio volunteered to ride to the nearest town and get a detachment of soldiers to go after the bandits. He g-allopcd off, leaving us nil too excited to turn to work, nnd wondering how we would get through the weary hours that must elapse ere he could return with the soldiers. Btit the time came and brought- neither soldiers nor Lafague. The neMt day. after the tragedy had dawned, nnd many of us were preparing to saddle up the mules and ride over to the town after news of the Frenchman when that individual appeared, on foot r-nd accompanied by Miss Cunningham dressed in the native Peruvian costume. They were both"'so fatigued that they could scarcely stand, especially Miss Cunningham, and it was fortunate indeed that Uiey had no farther to travel. Of course, there had been a rescue, ami us it turned ovit a. most g-alhintone; but Lafague was very modest on the subject "and it was some time before the rest of us learnt what had happened during the interval of our waiting 1 ant! anxiety. La.fague never reaehcd the town. Whilst still some milus from it the road traversed a deep forest in the middle of whiuh he rode right into the eump of the bandits, who had halted there for dinner. Of'course lie was made a prisoner, and U'.ar, incident turned the whole tide of the affair. There were in fact but four of iihe band with Castro, and it was now decided that the latter, accompanied by two men, should at oiice_£ 0 .forward to their mountain haunt whilst the other two remained in the forest until Lafague coulcl return to the inine and secure the required ransom. Of course they held all the trump cards, as any attempt to Outwit them would be visited on the unfortunate prisoners. So they thought, but they did not count cm the young Frenchman's wit nnd plnck w Crying 1 out in French to Miss Cunningham to be of good cheer and ready •vVEST BOUND. ,.. iitiili uem c'iilU u f ' r iVnls llnlltrd dully. ^ "<> -13'..

Mr- Cunningham and his man-servant lay dead, hacked to pieces with machetes, and Miss Cunningham's maid was found gagged nnd bound. The young lady herself had disappeared. The maid's story was short and tragic. Several men, brigands, had broke into the house in the dead of night and attempted to bind her master, but both he and his man resisted so stoutly that at last they were cut down where they .stood and the cords' intended for the father were bound about the daughter and her maid. The young lady was then taken away, and a message left with the maid to the effect that Castro had done the deed, :ind if a heavy ransom to be demanded in due course was not paid the THE -MOUNTAIN JACAL. for a. surprise, La fugue started On his mission. So soon as lie got out of sight, however, he mode a detour throug-h the forest and came out on the mountain roaO a couple of miles above the jungle. There he awaited Castro, determined or. makiti"- a sudden coup. He luid net long to wait. As the throe desperadoes rode past, Castro ahead with Hiss Cui,- ningham before him on the saddle, Ln- I'ii-gue's 'Winchester Hashed twice and i.lietwohiiulerrnen reeled to the ground. Then began an exciting chase. Tho Frenchman h:-.d calculated on shooting 1 down the Uireol>:iiKlitsand rescuing the girl without more trouble,, but her position prevented his risking " sllot nt Ca-stro. The latter, finding that he had fallen into ini ambush, started off at a grill-op: and away went I.n fugue pelting after. ,. Unable to release bis hold on the girl, Cast.ro could not use his rifle, and so mile fifwr mile the splendid mountain ponies dashed on, La.fnguc slowly gain- in!? ground. At length came the critical moment, when sword, bayonet and machete (lashed above the heads of pursuer and pursued, making the lightning to the storm-cloud impact of the rushing steeds. Hut. the deadly weapon'; only flashed together to be violently hurled asunder as riders and horse* went crashing to the ground. For through Lafaguc's want of skill nnd Castro's left hand engaged both with supporting the girl and handling the. reins, the animals crushed together in full career and fell headlong with their own impetus. Miss Cunningham wtin hurled to some distance, but was uninjured. Both horses rolled completely over the bandit'chief, crushing the life out o"f him, whilst Lafague. falling 1 on top, escaped wit.b a severe shaking.. ' Fortunately for our friends there w:ia n native "jaeVl" perched ou the hillside not far oft, and there they were hospitably entertained for the night, and poor Miss Cunningham, who had been abducted as she- stood, in her night garments ar.d slippers, was provided with a more becoming outfit of clothing.
