ROMANCE BY EVAN EVANS SYNOPSIS: Brother Pascual has come to the camp of Mateo Bubriz, the bandit. Mateo is not the usual bandit; he steals only from those who can afford to lose. And Brother Pascual is not the ordinary friar, for he has come to get Mateo's aid in recovering the emerald crown of Our Lady, stolen by the Governor from the church itself. Mateo says alone he can do nothing, but that if "El Keed" were with him, it might be possible to recover the crown. Chapter Four "EL KEED" "Ah, Mateo, is this 'El Keed' the only man? This gringo you hate?' "Ay, this man I hate- is the only one. But I also love him, and he loves me. Hai, Pascual! .Think thai I had him under the-muzzle of my gun. That his life ,was like.;'.this*Jn my hand to crush;:.'And.there lay Tonio, the traitor-r-PasciM,'. keep me from speaking, about it,-.."But I let them both go "free because Tonio loves.- ' : even while he is wearing- another flame and speaking another Speech. And Montana I saw was the- : .a&cond. .man in the world. Bubriz,rthenVEl;VKeed. There is no third. ;;/ "I could not kill him.,: I left the house. I took his hand. We spoke quietly. We were friends. For a little while, as I went away, my heart was so full with my friend that I could forget how I had' lost Tonio through him." Brother Pascual knew -very well that famous tale of how the Montana Kid, by means of a' tattooed birthmark, had insinuated himself into the Laveiy household in the place of the son whom Bubriz, to repay the whip-stroke, had stolen twenty years before; but then some stroke of conscience had driven the Kid south into Mexico to find the real heir, whom he had seen there In his wanderings. ! He knew how Montana had fought ;o take young "Tonio" away, and low Bubriz, who had raised the boy ;o love him and hate the "gringos," had resisted desperately and then pursued the pair north towards the Grande. Now Tonio was restored ;o his blood and his family; he had been sent off to Europe to put some distance between him and his terrible foster father, Bubriz; and the Montana Kid—El Keed in Mexico— remained on the Lavery ranch about ;o marry the daughter of the family. Bubriz blew his nose with a great snoring sound. "Now I am better," he said. "This Montana who stole Tonio—" jegan the friar. "Be silent J" shouted Bubriz, with ,he face of a madman: "If he were with you, might you not steal back the emeralds, even 'rom Fort Duraya and General Estrada? And if you went to El Keed, might he not remember how you mce spared him? Might he not ride with you in spite of the danger?" "He is to marry the sister of Tonio. How can I make him leave her?" 'Mateo, it is not for us to doubt. Let us go north towards the land of the gringos. Let us cross the river. When we have come to the place, God will surely show us the proper way. He will bring even Montana into our hands." Bubriz, at this, had stopped his racing. His heart began to lift Higher and higher. "Pascual," he said, "who can tell? Perhaps it is true. Perhaps it is the will of God, after all. It is true I I feel that the thing shall be. We shall ride together; we shall work together; and what will walls of stone se, what will solders be, when we two are side by side?" "But he is a gringo—and ah, the pity of it!" said the friar. "Ay," groaned Bubriz ,'the pity of it! But only his skin is American and his heart is pure Mexican!" In the corral thb bloopd-bay mare was being drawn to the snubbing- jost. And that great rider of outlaw horses, Tombstone - Joe, was pulling the ropes. The cowpunchers sat like crows on the fence posts, eight feet from the ground. The Montana Kid was among the crows. From the veranda of the ranch house, he looked like any of the others except that his shoulders were a little wider and the big double cord of back muscle could be distinguished even at that distance, and through the shirt. Buth Lavery stood by one of the porch pillars, "We ought to go down," she said. "There's no use having too much audience," said Bichard Lavery "That would make Montana want to ride the mare himself." "He's promised not to," answered the girl. But fear changed the blue of her eyes as she spoke. "Promises—well, promises are still only words, to Montana," said her father. "Don't say that," she protested. "Well, I won't say it, then," answered tall Bichard Lavery. But he 'kept his thought in the grim lines -of his face. ' 'I'You've never loved him!" said the' girl, nervously. '-''Honor and respect him I can," Said Eavery, curtly. "He're more man ;£h«ri anyone I know." •At this she sighed, quickly, as one in whom a great emotion is constantly pent. And she broke out, suddenly, "You' think he's only a tramp." • "I don't think he's only a tramp,' said Bichard Lavery. He looked down at a black band around the arm of his coat. His wife had died two months before. "You think he's a tramp—and something more," said the girl, speaking quietly, mostly to herself. "You sent Dick away to Europe—to get him away from Montana—to get him away from temptation. You've never trusted Montanta." „ "Now that your .mothe? is gone," said Lavery, very'gently, "do'you think that he'll be with us long?" She lifted her head a Uttle. She scanned, as if to find the answer there, the long lines of the valley, and the high plateaus, and the green pasture lands for miles and miles which. all belong to the Lavery estate. . "We'll be married Sunday," she said, briefly. "He's put it off before," said the rancher, and there was'no mercy in his hard voice. "He'll put it off again." 'He won't! This is the last time! He knows it." Then she added, in a half-weary, half-sad O u t b u r st, "Doesn't he pare about mej" "Ay, he cares about you. And he cares about other things, too.
