Now, for a week I was BO 111 from my wounds that I was unable to bo moved, and then I must be carried in s litter till we came to within three days' journey of the city of Tenootltlan, or Mexico. One night we camped in a rest house, of which there were many built along the roads for tfie use of travelers, that was placed almost on the top of the sierra or mountain range which surrounds the valley of Tenoctitlan. Next morning we took the road again before dawn, for the oold was go sharp at this great height that we, who had traveled from the hot land, could Bleep very little, and also Guatemoo desired if it were possible to roach the city that night. When we hod gone a few hundred paoea, the path came to the crest of the mountain range, and I halted suddenly in wonder and admiration. Below me lay a vast bowl of land and water, of which, however, I could see nothing, for the shadows of the night etlll filled it. But before me, piercing the very clouds, towered the crests if two snow clad mountains, and on these the light of the unrlscn sun played, already ibanging thuir whiteness to the stain of blood. Popo, or the Hill that Smokes, is the name of the one, and Iztac, or the Sleeping Woman, that of the other, and no grander sight was ever offered to the gyes of man than they furnished in that hour 'before tho dawn. From the lofty summit of Popo wont up great columns )f smoke, which, what with tho flro in ;helr heart and the crimson of tho sunrise, looked like rolling pillars of flame. And For tho glory of the glittering slopes below, tbat changed continually from the mystery of white to dull red, from red to criin- K>n and from crimson to every dazzling juo that the rainbow holds, who can tell it, who can even imagine HP None indeed except those that have seen tho sun rise over the volcano of Tonoctltlan. When I had feasted my eyes on Popo, I burned to Extoo. She is not so lolty as her "husband," for so the Aztecs name the volcano Popo, and when first I looked I could see nothing but the gigantic shape if a woman fashioned in snow and lying like a corpse upon her lofty bier, whoso jalr streamed down tho mountain side. But now the sunbeams caught her also, ind she seemed to start out in majesty From a veil of rosy mist, a wonderful and thrilling sight. But, beautiful us she was then, still I love tho Sleeping Woman best •t eve. Than she lies a shape of glory on the blackness beneath and is slowly swallowed up into the solemn night as the dark draws its veil across her. Now, as I gazed the light began to creep lown the sides of the volcauos, revealing the forests on their flanks. But still the vast valley was filled with mint that lay in dense billows resembling those of tho soo, through which hills and temples tops started up like islands. By slow degrees as we passed upon our downward road tho vapors cleared away and tho lakes of Tcz- ouco, Chaloo and Xoohicalco shone in tho sunlight like giant mirrors. OK their lanks stood many cities. Indeed tho greatest of these, Mexico, seemed to float ipon the waters. Beyond them and about them were green fields of corn and uloo ind groves of forest trees, while far away lowered the black wall of rook that hedges n tho valley. All day we journeyed swiftly through this fairyland. Wo passed through tho cities of Amaquem and AJotzluco, which I will not stay to describe, and munya lovely village that nestled upun thu borders of Lake Chulco. Then wo entered on the groat causeway of stone built like a road nutting on thu waters, and with tho af ter- 10011 wo euiuo to the town of Ouitlahuao. Thence wo passed on to Iztupulupan, and ioro Guatemoo would have rented for tho light in the royal housuof hU unole Cult- uhua. But when wo reached tho town wo 'oiuid Dmt Montezuiua, who hud bean advised of our approach by runners, had sent orders that we wuru to push on to 'i'enoo- 'Hluu, mid that palanquins had boon inado ready to bear UK. So wo unterud the palanquins, and leaving that luvuly city of giinlrjm wore bprno swiftly along tho southern cmmeway. On wo wont part towns built upun piles fixed u tho bou<;:ii of thu Juku, i«u>t gardens ihut woro luld out on reeds and Hauled over tho witter* like a bout, post toooAlUs and glistening temples without number, hrough lluots of light oantmu mid thousands of Imlluns going to and fro about heir busluutut, till at length toward Bunnet we ruuohwl tho tmUlemeuted fort hut is culled Xoloo, which bUiuds upon ho iliko. I guy suuids, but, ulati, U ntuuila >o morel Cortes has dtwtruyiHl U, ttiid with, it all those glojrluun cities which wy >yus behold that day. At XuJoo wu begun to enter tho city ot L'ouootUlmi, or Mexico, thu mightiest city ihut ovor I had toon. Thu huuuos on tho outuklrt* iudojid were built of mud or adobe, but Uuwo in the richer pori* were constructed of rodstoue. Koch home sur- juud \vitf, lj) ,turu, surrounded by a garden, while between them ran canals, having footpaths on either side. Then there were squares, anc In the squares pyramids, palaces and temples without end. I gazed on them till I was bewildered, but all seemed as nothing when at length I saw the great temple, with its stone gateways opening to the north and the south, the east and the west, its walla cnrven everywhere with serpents, its polished pavements, its teoo- nllii decked with human skulls, thousands upon thousands of them, and its vast surrounding tianquez, or market place. I caught but a glimpse of it then, for the darkness was falling, and afterward we were borne on through the darkness, I did not know whither. Awhile went by, and I saw that we had left the city and were passing up a steep hill beneath the shadow of mighty cedar trees. Presently we halted in a courtyard, and here I was bidden to alight. Then tho Prince Guatemoo led me into a wondrous house, of which all the rooms were roofed with cedar wood and its walls hung with richly colored cloths, and In that house gold seemed as plentiful aa bricks and oak are with ua In England. Led by domestics) who bore cedar wands in their hands, we went through many passages and rooms till at length we came to a chamber where other domestics were awaiting us, who washed us with scented waters and clothed us In gorgeous apparel. Thence they conducted us to a door, where we were bidden to remove our shoes, and a coarse colored robe was given to each of ua to hide our splendid dress. The robes having been put on, we were suffered to pass the door and found ourselves in a vast chamber in which were many noble men and some women, all standing and clad in coarse robes. At the far end of this chamber was a gilded screen, and. from behind it floated sounds of sweet music. Now, as we stood in the great chamber, that was lighted with sweet smelling torches, many men advanced and greeted Guatemoc, the prince, and I noticed that all of them looked upon me curiously. Presently a woman came, and I saw that her beauty was great. She was tall and •lately, and beneath her rough outer robe splendidly attired In worked and jeweled garments. Weary and bewildered as I Was, her loveliness seized me, as it were, In a vise—never before hod I seen such loveliness, for her eye was proud and full like the eye of a buck, her curling hair fell upon her shoulders, and her features were very noble, yet tender almost to sadness, though at times she could seem fierce enough. This lady was yet la h«r first youth; perchance she may have wen some 18 years, but her shape was that ot a full grown woman and most royal. "Greeting, Guatemoo, my cousin," she •aid in a sweet voice. "So you ore come at last. My royal father has awaited you for long and will ask qucBtlonsjjs to your delay. My sister, your wife,iiae wondered also why youitarried." Now, aa she spoke, I felt rather tb»u saw that this lady was searching me with her eyes. "Greeting, Otomio, my cousin, "answered tho-prince. ''I have been delayed by tho accidents of travel. Tabasco is far away; also my charge and companion, Teule," and ho nodded toward me, "mat with an accident en tho road." "What was tho accident?" sho asked. "Only this—that he saved me from the Jaws of a puma at the risk of his life when all the others fled from me and was somewhat hurt in the deed. Ue saved me thus,'' —and in u few words he told tho story. Sho listened, and I saw that her eye* sparkled at tho tale. When It was done, sho spoke again, and this time to me. "Welcome, Teule," sho said, smiling. "You are not of our people, yet my heart goes out to such a man." And, still smiling, sho left us. "Who is that great ladyf I asked ot Guatemoo. "That is my cousin Otomio, the princess of tho Otomio, my undo Montozu- ma'i favorite daughter," ho answered. "She likes you, Tculo, and that is well for you for many reasons. Hush)" As ho spoke tho screen lit the far end of the chamber was drawn aside. Beyond it a man sat upon a broldered cushion, 'who was inhaling tho fumes of tho tobacco wood from a gilded pipe of wood, after the Indian fashion. This wan, who was no other than tho monarch Montozuma, was of a tall build and melancholy countenance, having a very palo face for ono of bis nation, and thin, black hair. He wits dressed in a white robo of tho purest cotton and woro a golden bait and sandals sot with pearls, and on his bead a plume of feathers of tho royal green. Behind him woro a bund of beautiful girls somewhat •lightly clothed, sowu of whom play.xl on lutes and other instruments of mut,i<i, uud on cither bldo stood four ancient ccuusol- ors, all of them barefooted and olud In the coarsest garments.' 80 soon us thu Boivon was drawn all the company In thu chuiubor prostrated Diem- solves ujiun their knees, (in example tluit I hastened U) follow, uud thus they ivmuiu- A inun nut won a hrotdercd i-uuhUm, in- he lumen of tlw tvltucvu, Ml till the viuuoror made a sign with the glWod UMT! of his l>l\*>\ wliw» they rusu lii fijolr feet avuli) unil stood with folded bonds uud pyutf lUoU abjectly upon tho floor. 1'retumUy Montozui/m tuudu uiipth- Mr tijrnu), and throe ugod men, whom I onduntouU to bo ouiUuwuulon, udvuuuod, uikud toiuo prayer of htm. Ho <u>- u with a nod of Uk> Uqud, aud they retreated ffom his presence, ranking oWsfttie* nnd stopping backward till they mingled with the crowd, Then the emper or spoke a word to one of the counselors Who bowed and came slowly down tho hall, looking to the right and to tho left Presently his eye fell upon Guatelnoo, and Indeed ho was easy to see, for ho stood a head taller thnn any there. "Hnll, prince," he said. "The royn Monteztima desires to spoak with you, and witfe lie Teule, j-oni' companion." "Do oa I do, Toule," said Guatemoo, and led the way up the chamber till we reached tho place where tho wooden screen bad been, which, as wo passed it, was drawn behind us, shutting us off from the hall. Hero we stood awhile, with folded hands and downcast eyes, till a signal wns made to us to advance. "Your report, nephew," said Montezu ma In a low voice of command. "I went to the city of Tabasco, O glorious Montezuma. I found the Tculo and brought him thither; also t caused tho high priest to bo sacrificed according to tho loyal command, and now I hand bock the Imperial signet," and ho gave the ring to a counselor. "Why did you delay so long upon the lead, nephew) 1 " "Because of tho chances of tho journey. While saving my life, royal Montcziima, the Teule, my prisoner, was bitten by a puma. Its skin is brought to you as an offering." Now Montezuma looked at me for the first time, then opened a picture scroll that one of the counselors handed to him and read in it, glancing at mo from time to time. "Tha description is good," he said at length, "In all save one thing—it does not •ay that this prisoner Is the handsomest man in Anahuoc. Say, Teule, why have jour countrymen landed on my dominions and slain my people?" "I know nothing of It, O king," I an •wered aa well as I might, with the help ot Guatemoo, "and they are not my countrymen." "The report says that yon confess to having the blood of these Teules in your veins, and that you came to these shores, or near them, in one of their great canoes." "That Is so, O king, yet I am notof their people, and I come to the shore floating on a barrel." "I hold that you lie, "answered Monto- •umo, frowning, "for the sharks and crocodiles would devour one who swam thus." Then he added anxiously, "Say, are you of the descendants of Quetzal?" "I do not know, O king. I am of a white race, and our forefather was named Adam." "Perchance that Is another name for Qnetaal," he said. "It has long been prophesied tbat his children would return, and now it seems that the hour of their coming IB at hand." And he sighed heavily, then added: "Go now. Tomorrow you •hall tell me of these Teules, and the council of the priests shall decide your fate." Now, when I heard the names of the priest*, I trembled in all my bones and cried, clasping my bands in supplication: "Slay me If you will, O king, but I bo- seech you deliver me not again into the hands of the priest*." ''We are all in the hands of tho priest*, Who are the mouth of God," he answered coldly. "Besides I hold that you have lied tome," Then 1 went, foreboding evil, and Gua- temoo also looked downcast. Bitterly did I carte the hour when I hod said that I wail st *be_ Spanish blood and yet no Span- hud. Had I known even what I know that day, torture would not have wrung those word* from me. But now It was too late. Row Guatemoo led me to certain apartments of this palace of Chapoltepoo, where hi* wife, the royal Princess Teculchpo, Wai awaiting him, a very lovely lady, and wlifa her other ladles, among them tho Princes* Otomio, Montozuma's daughter, and some nobles. Here a rich repast was served to us, and I was seated next to the Princess Otomlu, who spoke to mo most graciously, asking mo many things concerning my land and the people of the Teulra. It was from her that I learned first that the ompuror was much disturbed at heart because of these Toules, or Span BBnfe for ho was superstitious and hold them to be the children of the god Quest- sal, who, according to ancient prophecy, wowld come to tafco the land. Indeed so gracious was she, and *o royally lovely, tbat for the first time I felt my heart stirred by any other woman than my betrothed whom I had loft fur away in Kngiuud, and whom, as I thought, I should never ••• again. And, as I learned in aftorduys, mine was not tho only heart that was stir- rod that night. Near to us sat another royal lady, Pa- pantiln, tho sister of Montezuma, but she neither young nor lovely, and yet most sweet faced and sad, as though with the presage of death. Indeed sho died not many weeks after, but could not rest quiet in her grave, an shall bo told. Wben the feast was done and wo had drank of the cocoa or chocolate and smoked tobacco in pipes, A itrungo but most soothing custom tbut I learned InTatuisoo, and of which I 'have never boon able to break myself, though tho weed is still hard to oomo by hero in England, I was led to my sleeping place, asinull chamber, paneled with cedar boards. For awhile I could not (loop, for I was overcome by thu memory of all tho strange sights that I had aeon In this wonderful now lunil, which was to civilized and yet so burba- sous. Then my thought* flow to tho vision ot that most lovely moid, the Priuootu Oto- into, who, M I believed, hud looked on mo ao kindly, and I found that vision sweet, for I was young, and the English Lily, my own lore, wus far away and lost to mo for- eve* Was it then wonderful thitt I should EUu) this Indian poppy falrf Indeed where !• Iho juun who would uothnvo been overcome by her •wooctnoss, her beauty and that stamp of royal grace wiileli ooiuea with kingly blood and tho dully exorcise of power)* Llko tho rich wonders of tho robo she wore, her very barbarism, of which now I saw but tho hotter »li|o, drew and diwitlud my mind's eye, giving liur woman's toudcmwu •onto HOW (iiiullty, •oiubor and wtrango, an custom rlohuuas which Is lucking in our woll schooled Ung- lUh women, tlmt at ono uud tho sumo •troko touched both tho limigluiiUoii uud tho souses and through them uuthrallvd tho heart.

But os I Iny in tho chamber of tho palace of Chapoltopeo the tramp of tho guards without my door reminded me that I had little now to do with love and other do- llghte, I whose life hung from day to clay upon s hair. Tomorrow the priests would decide my fate, and when tho priests were judges the prisoner might know tho sentence before it was spoken. I was a stronger and a white man, surely suoh a one would prove nn offering more acceptable to the gods than that furnished by a thousand Indian hearts. I had been snatched from tho altars of Tabasco that I might grace tho higher altars of Tenootltlan, and that was all, My fate would bo to perish miserably far from my home, and In this world never to bo heard of more. Musing thus sadly, at last I slept. When I woke, tho sun was up. Rising from my mat, I went to the wood barrod window place and looked through. The palaco whence I gazed was placed on tho crest of a rooky hill. On one side this hill was bathed by tho blue waters of Tezouco; on the other, a mile or more away, rose tho temple towers of Mexico. Along the slopes of tho hill and In some directions for a mile from its base grow huge cedar trees, from the boughs of which hung a gray and ghostly looking moss. These trees are so large that the smallest of them is bigger than the best oak in this pariah of Ditch- inghom, while the greatest measures 83 paces round the base. Beyond and between these marvelous and ancient trees were the gardens of Moutczuma, that with their strange and gorgeous flowers, their marble baths, their aviaries and wild beast dens were, as I believe, the most wonderful In the whole world. [Tho gardens of Monte- coma have been long destroyed, but some of tho cedars still flourish at Ohapoltepeo, though the Spaniards out down many. One of them, which tradition says was a favorite tree of the great emperor's, measures—according to a rough calculation the author of -this book made upon the spot- about 00 feet round the bole. It Is strange to think that a few 1 ancient conifers should alone survive of all the glories of Monte- cuma's wealth and state.] "At the least," thought I to myself, "even if I must die, U is something to have •sen this country of Anahuac, its king, it* customs and its people." CHAPTER XIII. THOMAS BECOMES A GOD. Little did I, plain Thomas Wingffeldy gentleman, know when I rose that mom- Ing that before sunset I should bo a god, and, after Montezuma, the emperor, the- most honored man, or rather god, In the City of Mexico. It came about thus: When I had breakfasted with the household of tho Prince Guatemoo, I was led to the hall of justice,. which was named the "tribunal of God." Hero on a golden throne sat Montezuma,.' administering justice in such pomp as I. cannot describe. About him were his counselors and great lords, and before him was placed a human skull crowned with emeralds so large tbat a blaze of light went up from them. In his hand also ho held an arrow for a scepter. Certain chiefs or co* ilques wore -m tholr trial for treason, nor woro they Iwft long in doubt aa to their fate, for when some evidence had been board they woro asked what thoy had to u say in their defense'. Koch of them tolbVb his talo in few words and short. Then'" Montozuma, who till now hod said and done nothing, took the painted scroll of ' their Indictments and priokod it with the arrow in his hand where the picture of each prisoner appeared upon the scroll. Then they wore led away to death, but how they died I do not know. When this trial was finished, certain priests entered tho hall clothed In sable robes, their matted hair hanging down their backs. Thoy woro fierce, wild eyed men of groat dignity, and I shivered whoa I sow them, I noticed also that thoy alone mode small reverence to the majesty • of Montozuma. Tho counselors and nobles having fallen b&ok, those priests entered into talk with the emperor, and presently two-of them came forward, and taking me from tho custody of the quanta led mo forward before tho throuo.. Then of a sudden I was commanduil to strip my•elf of my garments, uud this I did, with no little shame, till I stood naked bofon them all. Now thu prlcats came forward and examined every purt of mo closely. On my urms wore the sours loft by Do Garola's sword, and on my bromit thu scarcely healed murks of thu jumm's tooth and claw*. Those wounds they scanned, asking how I had oomo by them. I told thorn, and thereupon thoy curried on a discussion among themselves and out of my hearing, which grew so warm that ut length they appealed to tho emperor to dooldo the point He thought awhile, and .1 heard him say: "The blemishes do not come from within the body, nor woro thoy upon it at birth, but have been inflicted by the violence of man and boost." Then the priest* consulted together again, and presently their loader upokq wine words Into tho oar of Montozuuia. Bo nodded, and rising from his throuo camo toward mo, who stood naked and shivering before him, for tho air of Mexico Is keen. Aa ho advanced ho loosed a chain of emeralds aud gold that hung about Ills neck and unoluspod tho royal cloak from his shouldon. Then with his own hand ho put tho chain about my throat and the cloak upon my shoulders, and having humbly bent tho knoo buforo mo, at though in adoration, ho catt his anus about mo and embraced me. "Hull, most blessed," he null], "divine sou of Quetzal, holder of thu spirit of UVz- Cttt, toul of tho world, creator of the world.
