talus, that this lord, my luislmruVts not ot 6ttf Indian blood, nor Is ho altogbthor k of thd bloott of tlio Teules, with whom wo bf6 at taif, but rathe* of that of the tone children of Quetzal, the dwellers In a fat - Off northern BOH, who are foes to tho Tottlos. And as they aro foes, so this, my lord, is their foo, and, aa doubtless you luivo hoard, tot all tho deeds of arms that wote wrought Upon tho night of tho slaying of thd Teules hone tjoro greater thnn Ills, atul it was he who first discovered tlielr z-otroofc. "Chiefs tihd captains of tlio great and ttDclcnt people O f tho Otomio, 1, yottr princess, haVo been sent to you by Cnltlahun, toy king and yours,>togothcrwifchiny lord, tb plead With you on a certrtin matter. , Out king has hoard, and 1 also havo beard With shame, that many of tho vmrrlora of our Mood havo joined tho Tlascalans, who Vote ever foes to tho Aztecs, la their nn- holy alliance with tho Teules. Now for awhile tho white men are beaten back, but they havo touched tho gold they covet, nnd they will return again llko bees to a half drained 'flower. They will return, yet of themselves they can do nothing against tho glory of Tenoctitlan. But how •hall It go if with thorn come thousands .and tons of thousands of tho Indian peoples? I know well that now in this timo of trouble, when kingdoms crumble, when tho air is full of portents and tho very gods seem Impotent, there aro many who would soizo tho moment and turn it to i •their profit. Thcro aro roany-^nou and tribes who "remember ancient wars and wrongs, and who cry: 'Now is tho hour of Vengeance. Now wo will think on tho widows that tho Aztec spears havo made, on the tribute which they have wrung from our poverty to swell their wealth and on the captives who luwo decked tbo ultar£ of their sacrifice!' "la It not so? Aye, It la BO, and I cannot wonder at it. Yot I ask you to remember this—that tho yoke you would help to eet upon tho neck of the quuon of cities Will fit your neck also. Oh, foolish uien, •do you think that you shall bo spared Whien by your aid Tonootitlan is a ruin and the Aztecs aro no more a people? I say to jrou, never I Tho sticks that tho Toules uso to beat shalTbo broken one by one and cast into the fire to burn. If the Aztecs fall, then, early or late, every tribe within this Wide land shall fall. They shall bo slain, their cities shall be stomped flat, their wealth shall bo wrung f rpni them,and their children shall cat tho bread of slavery und drink the water of affliction. Choose, ye people of tho Otomto. Will you stand by tho men of your own 'customs nnd country, though thoy havo boon your foes at times, or will you throw ii> .your lot with tho stranger? Choose, yo people of'the O to- mlo, and know this—that on your choice •and that of tho other men of Anahunc depends tho fnto of Aimhuuc. I am your princess, and you should obey mo, but today I issuo no command. I say ciiooso between tho alliance of tho'Aztec and tho yoke of tho Teulc, and may, tho God above tho gods, tho Almighty, tho invisible God, direct your choice.'' Otomio ceased, and a murmur of applause wont round tbo hall. Alas, I can do no justice to tho tiro of her words any snore thnn I can describe tho dignity and loveliness of her person an it seemed in that hour. But they went to tho hearts of tho rude chieftains who listened. Many of them despised tho Autoes as a womanish people of the plains nnd the lakes, a people of commerce. Many of them had blood feuds against them dating back for generations.' But still they know that their princess spoko truth, and that tho triumph of tho 'i'oulo iii Tenoctitlan would munn bis triumph over every city throughout tho land. So then and there they ehose, though in after days in tho stress of dcfunfc and trouble many wont bnf.k upon their choice, as is tho fashion of men. • • "Otomio," cried tho spokesman after they had taken counsel together, "wo havo chosen. Princess, your words have conquered us. Wo throw In our lot with tho Aztecs nnd will fight to tho lust for freedom from tho Teulo." "Now I sco tlnit you aro indeed my people, and I am indeed your ruler," answered Otomio. "So tlio great lords wUo are gone, my forcfiilhoro, your chief tains, would have Bpukun in alike case. May you novoi: regret thin uliolce, my brethren, men of tho Otomic." And BO It cttiiio to puss thnt when wo loft tho City of Finos we took from it to Gultluhna, tho emperor, a promise of »u army of ao.OOO men vowed to serve him to tho, (loath in hlHwarnptnlnHt the Spaniard.

Shu hud tasted of death by tho sword of the white mim; now death wag with Jn;r in another shnpu, fur tho Spaniard had brought tho foul <ilck- noM of Kun>i>!> with him, and smallpox raged throughout tho land.

My lord, iny hnstiond Teulo and I have won back the most part of tho people of tho Otomio to bur cause nnd standard. An army of SO, 000 mountain men waits upon your word, And whun those are spout there are more to follow." "Well done, daughter of Mohtezuma, and you, white man," gasped tho dying king. ''The gods woro wise when they ref used you both upon tho stono of sacrifice, and I wns foolish when 1 would have slain yon, Tcmlo. To you nnd all I say bo of a steadfast hcatt, and if you must die then die with honor. Tho fray draws on, but I shall not share it, and who knows its end?" Now ho lay silent for awhile; then of a sudden, as though an inspiration had seized him, he cnst the sheet from his face and sat up upon his couch, no pleasant sight to sco, for the pestilence hod done its worst with him. "Alas," he wailed, "and alnsl I see the streets of Tonoctitlan red with blood and fire. I sco her dead piled up In heaps, and tho horses of tho Teules trample them. I see tho spirit of my people, and her voice la sighing, and her neck Is heavy with chains. The children are visited because of tho evil of tho fathers. Sfo are doomed, people of Anahuao, whom I would have nurtured as an caglo nurtures her young. Hell yawns for you, and earth refuses you because of your sins, and the remnant that remains shall be slaves from generation to generation till the vengeance la accomplished." Having cried thus with a great voice, Culttuhuafqll back upon the cushions, and ' fell bac7: upon tJie cushions. before the frightened leech who tended him could lift his head he had passed beyond the troubles of this earth. But tho words which ho had spoken remained fixed in tho hearts of those who heard them, though they were told to none except to Guatemoo. Thus, then, in my presence and in that of Otomio died Cuitlahua, emperor of tho Aztecs, when ho had reigned but 15 weeks. Once more tho nation mourned Its king, tlio chief of Miany a thousand of its children whom the pestilence swept with him to tlio "mansions of tlio sun" or perchance to tho "darkness behind tho stars." . But tho mourning was not for long, for In the urgency of tho times it was necessary thnt a new emperor should be crowned to,.take command of tho armies nnd rule tno nutioi; Therefore on tho morrow of the burial f Oultlnhua tho council of tho four eU'cUiiH was convened nnd with thorn lesser nobles nnd princos to tho number of 800, ami I among thorn in the right of my rank us general nnd as husband of tho Princess Otomio. There was no great need of deliberation indeed, for though the names of several were mentioned the princes know there was but one man who by birth, by courage and nobility of mind was fitted to copo with tho troubles of tho nation. Thnt man wns Guatomoc, my friend and blood brother, the nephew of tho two lust emperors and tho husband of my wife's sister, Montczumn's daughter, Tooulchpo. All knew it, I suy, except, strangely enough, Guatomoo himself, for as wo passed into the council ho named two other princes, miylng that without doubt tho choice Isi^betwci-n them. It was a spundld and hulcmn sight, that gathering of tlio four great lords, tho electors, dressed In their magnificent robes, nnd of the lesser council of confirmation of 800 lords and princes, who sut without tho olrclo, but in hearing of /ill that passed. Vory Eolomn also was the prayer of tho high priest, who, clad inhlsrolxis of snblo, seemed likoablotof ink dropped on a glitter of gCld. When tho high priest had inmlo an end of his prayer, tho llrst of tho four groat electors ruse, saying: "Guatomoo, In tlio nnnio of God nnd with tho voioo of tho pcuplo of Anuhnno, wo summon you to tho throne of Anuhuno. Lung may you live, and justly may you rule, und may tho glory bo yours of beating back into tho si>a tlioHu foes who would destroy us. Hull to you, Guutcmoc, em- poror of tho Aztecs and of their vassal tribes." And all tho 800 of tho i:onnoll of confirmation repeated In a voice of thunder, "Hull to you, Guatomoo, uinpurorl" Now tho prince himself stood forward and spoko: ''You lords of election and you, prlncea, genoruli, nobles and captains of the council of confirmation, hear me. None can say what tho godn have In xtoro for us. It may bo vlotory, or It may bo destruction, but bo it triumph or death, lot u» uwour a groat oath together, my people and my brethren. Let u« awoar to light tho Toulon and tho traitors who abet them, for our cities, our hearth* and our altars, till the oUloi aro a nmoklng ruin, till tho hearth* aro cumbered with their dead and tho ul- tant run rod* with tho blood of their wor- ghlporn. So, If wo ara dontluod to conquer, vur triumph shall bo made sure, and if w* MO doom**! to full, at leant there will bo a story to bo told of us. Do you swear, iny pooplo und my brethren!" 1 "Wo swear," thoy muworod, with a •bout. "It li well," wild Gnatemoo. "And now way overtoiling slituno overtake him who break* thU oulhl" Thus, then, wa* Guutomoo, the Umt and groituwt of Uio A*too omuoror*, elected to tbo throne of hi* forefather*. Wben all was done, I hurried to tbo pal- while she did nothing but rave of Ino, the secret terror of her heart was disclosed— that I should cease to care for her; that her beauty and love might pall upon me so that I should leave her; that "the flower maid," for so she nntned Lily, who dwelt Across the sea should draw me back to her by magic—this was tho burden of her madness. At length her senses returned, and sho spoke, saying: ''Ho*- long have I lain 111, husband?" I told her, and sho said, "And havo you nursed mo all this while and through so foul a sickness?" ''Yes, Otomio, I have tended you." ''What havo I done that you should bo so good to mo?" sho murmured. Then some dreadful thought seemed to strike her, for sho moaned as though in pain and said: "A inirrorl Swift, bring me a mir- rorl" t gave her one, and vising on her arm eagerly she scanned her face in tho dim light of tho shadowed room, then lot tho plato of burnished gold fall and sank bock With a faint nnd happy cry: "I feared," she said, "I feared that I had become hideous, as those arc whom tho pestilence has smitten, and that you would ceaso to love mo, than which it had been better to die." "For shame," I said. "Do you, then, think that lovo can be frightened away by Born* few scars?" "Yea," Otomio answered; "that is, tho love of a man—not such love as mine, husband. Had I been thus—ah, I shudder to think of it—within a year you would have hated me. Perhaps it had not been BO with another, the fair maid of far away, but me you would have hated. Nay, I know It, though I know this also—that I should not have lived to feel your hate. Oh, I am thankful, thankfull" So Otomio recovered from her great sickness, and shortly afterward the pestilence passed away from Tonootitlan. And now I had many other things to think of, for the choosing of Guatoinoc, iny friend and blood brother, as emperor meant much advancement to me, who was made a gon eral of .the highest class and a principal adviser In his councils. Nor did I spare myself in his serlvce, but labored by day and night In the work of preparing the olty for siege, and In tho marshaling of tho troops, 'and more especially of that army of Otomios, who came, as they had promised, to the number of 80,000. Tho work was hard indeed, for these Indian tribes lacked discipline and powers of unity, without which their thousands were of little avail in a war with white men; also there wero great jealousies between their leaders which must be overcome, and I was myself an object of jealousy. Moreover, many tribes took this occasion of the trouble of the Aztecs to throw off thoir al- legianco or vassalage, and, even if they did not join the Spaniards, to remain neutral, watching for tho event of tho war. Still we labored on, dividing tho armies into regiments after the fashion of Europe, and stationing each in its own quarter, drilling them to tlio better use of arms, provisioning the city for a siege und weeding out as many useless mouths as wo might, and there wns but ouo man in Tenoctitlan who tolled ut these tasks more heavily than I, and that was Guatcmoc, tho emperor, who did not rest day or night. I tried oven to make powder with sulphur which was brought from the throat of tho volcun Popo, but having no knowledge of that art I failed. Indeed It would have availed us little had I succeeded, for having neither arquebuses nor cannon and no skill to cast thorn wo could only havo used it In mining roads and gateways, and perhaps ill grenades to bo thrown with tho baud. And so tho months wont on till at length spies camo in with tho tidings that tho Spaniards woro advancing in numlSors, and with them countless hosts of allies. Now I would havo sent Otomio to seek safety among her own people, but sho laughed mo to scorn and said: "Where you um there I will bo, husband. What! Shall it ho suffered that yon face death, perhaps to find him, when I am not at your side to die with you? If that is the fashion of white-women, Ilouvo it to thorn, beloved, und here, with you, I stay." fTO BE CONTlNUTiD.] .

LEJCLVOTO.V. Ky.. Sept, IT.-^-The victors seek to possess the entire field, the van quished accept defeat manfully. This conclusion is justified by outside appear ances here which began to manifest themselves early Sunday morning. One notable indication was the doffing ol Breckthridge badges/ and donnin? of Owens' badges by the most ardent young bloods who supported Breckinridge throughout the campaign with their money and their personal services. These men say that they went to the election Saturday believing that every voter at the primaries was morally bound to support the nominee. Now that their favorite, for whom they fought so valiantly, seems to have suffered de feat, they feel in honor bound to support his opponent. Breckinridge absolutely refuses to talk. The most thorough in. vestigation fa'.led to find a shadow ot ground for the rumor that he wpuld contest Owens' election. Everybody is thoroughly tired of the fierce contest that terminated at the primaries. To con test the election would be to prolong tbe struggle.' Tbe probabilities, therefore, seem to be against the contest. The best figures obtainable here give totals for candidates as follows: Owens, 7,900; Breckinridge, 7,070; Settle, 8,405. Owens' plurality, 330. Corrected returns will probably vary but little from these figures. A strong Breckinridge man, cashier in one of 'the banks here, attributed the defeat ot his candidate to the opposition ol Judge Morton and Prof. McCurvey ol the Christian church. He said: "The Christian church has a very strong fol .lowing here, and while ordinarily we should have given HOO or 1,000 plurality to Breckiuridge, we carried Fayette county by only 205 votes." Colonel John R. Allen, county attorney, one of Breckinridge's incessant supporters, says that he intends to support Oweas, and in fact, ia wearing an Owens' button, The BreckinritlgB managers from all parts of the district hava been in close consultation here. They figure Owens' plurality at 1»9, against the 410 plurality claimed by Owens' men. Dr. E. J. Mahoney, a Breckinridge detective, has been sent to Henry county to see if he could not rind some grounds for charges of fraud against the officers of one precinct in that county which gave Owens an overwhelming majority, und thereby throw the Owens vote out. M. A. Gas sidy, another detective employed by the Breckinridge forces, is iu Owen county on a similar mission, Breckinridgo lenders claim thnt in Scott county Owens received many fraudulent votes, as OUU more Democrats voted in this county than at the last election. Desha Breckinridgo saj's ho is confident of bis father's election. He said: "I cannot give out a statement by conn' ties, but our latest reports reduce Owens 1 plurality to HI. I am sure the county will bu given us by tho district committee wiion it meets. If it docs not [ am not prepared to suy what will follow— maybe a contest." At Midway. liert Hammond cauia and confessed to tin- judged that he had cast an illegal voto and uskod that one less vote be counted for Owens. Tho judges refused to do this anil Hiuumond was summoned to uppunr in court, FIFTY COUNri£S_ WENT DRY.

A. R. LADY OFFICbH DEFAULTS, Natlonnt Trensnrer Mrm OrnWk MI<a|>propt-I*t«* Fnndi, PITTSBURO, Sept, lo.>—By an official announcement, Mrs. Anna E, 0-rubb of Camden, N. J., past national treasurer of the Ladies of the Q. A. R, is charged With misappropriating the funds of that vrgnnization. This statement cheated a sensation. The proceedings were secret. One of the ladfes who is in standing makes the statr-nent that Mrs. Grubb defaulted to the amount of $500, and suits have been brought against her bondsmen. Mrs. Grubb, sho says, was re-elected to the office sovernl times and had the confidence of the ladies to such an extent that the auditors in going over her books considered it necessary only to make a cursory examination, How long the ihortage has existed is not stated, but at the Washington encampment the books were thought to be correct and she was re-elected. At Indianapolis in 189U, when a new treasurer was elected, Mrs. Grubb failed to turn over some of the books and investigation disclosed the discrepancy. When Mrs. Carrie V. Sheriff, who was president in 18&2, learned the facts, she, together with Attorney John Vanderslice of Philadelphia conferred with Mrs. Grnbb, and suit waa filed through Voorhees & Co. ot Camden. The case will come to trial next month. It appears that nothing of this was known to the members of the order until Friday, In the very .warm discussion which followed the announcement, Mrs. M. A. Stevens of Camden, a member of the council of administration, and Mn. Laura McNear, the first national president, make urgent appeals in behalf of Mrs. Grubb, and suggested that the ladies donate enough to make up the de- ficency, hoping to keep the scandal from the public. Others, however, bitterly denounced tho ex-treasurer and iniistetj that the law take its course. The excuse made for her by her friends ia that when she used the money it was to help her husband out of financial straits and she could not return it when called upon. r~ «.i". — Honor for Mils Breckinridge.
