but tlloria. sitting with her back to the
horses, did. und was about to exclaim,
when he made an imperative sign of
silence, and she paused, not wishing to
spoil snort If some fun were intended.
i In the meantime the estudlantina, in
whom she had recognized her novio
l'aco, overtook them, and chattering
with him she forgot to pay any more at
tention to the Devil. The black. musk
was looking straight in Manuela 's face;
she cast her eyes down und played with
her tan; he bent nearer and nearer: and
as hi- did so the scarlet hood of the
Devil crept closer to them over the back
of t lie carriage. Suddenly from theflps
or the Jilack Mask cume the words,
spoken for her alone: "This evening at

Manuela started violently and turned
towards the Mack Mask with opening
lips, but he sprang to the ground as
soon us the words were out or his mouth
and was lost in the crowd. At the same
moment the scarlet Devil slipped down
behind the carriage, und dodging In
und out among the horses' heads cross
ed to ihe opposite side of the Trado,
That evening Manuelu stood In her
room after dinner; over her head she
had I brown u luce mantilla, the folds
of w hich she held together in rront with
one huml: she was listeulng.but ull wuu
quiet in the house. The servunts were
ut supper. Dona Itiuncu and (ilorla. re

were resting after Ihe futlgues uf the
day. Kausto and her uncle hud gone

she left the room, sped along the cor- :
liilor. and found herself at the head of
n little sluircase leading to Ihe gulden. ,
The Viiasco's house wax tin old one and :
behind It lay a large neglected garden,
in which trees and shrubs growing in
tungled profusion had. in some parts,
almost blocked up the winding foot

the fourth, a high wall separated It
from the back of the arztlelu. or Opera
I'omlqiie. from which scraps und
strains of music flouted, us the per
formance went on. Towards this end
of the garden Manuelu hurried, push
ing aside the brunches of the shrubs,
which ulmost blocked up the approach
to un old door In the wall. It was
evidently rarely used, for its holts were
rusty, and was so completely over
grown by greenery as to be quite un
uotlceable to anyone who was unaware
of Its existence. Manuela drew back
the heavv bolts and went out. She
found herseir in a little plot or wuste
laud, not mote than a dozen yards
square. Ivlng between the buck of the
theater and the garden wall. It led no
where, and no windows looked on It: a
more secluded sped for u secret meeting
could not he imagined. A man was
there already leaning against the wall,
masked and wrapped In a cloak. As she
uppeured. he turned towards her It
was the Hluck Musk or the farnlval.
He sprang forward, took both her
hands in his. ami drawing her to him,
embraced her. What they could have
done next can' never be known, for
round the angle of the theater appear
ed another man. Manuelu started bac k
speechless against the wall, as she rec
ognlzed Ranion San Miguel. Without
casting u glance at her. he advanced
straight on the Hluck Musk.
"Draw, and defend yourself, if you
do not wish to be killed like a dog." he
hissed between his teeth, and from be
neath the folds of his cloak Hashed the
point of a rapier.
Ramon, Ramon! Stop, let me speak.
Hut she ,was too late. Before the
words were out of Manuela's mouth,
the Rlack Mask had sprung back, and
with marvelous ouickiiess, by one turn
of Ills left arm. had wrapped his cloak
round It to net as a guard, while with
the other he drew his long navaja from
his belt. (Hie or two passes were ex
changed with the rapidity of lightning,
but the Hlack Mask had no chance from
the first: he only sought to parry the
thrusts or his enemy, whereas Ramon
sought his lire blood. A few moments
and he sank to the ground transfixed
by the rapier of San Miguel, und .Man

self upon the lifeless body. The bluck
mask had fallen on. It wus Kspadu,
For un Instant San Miguel stood with
horror anil grief painted on his face,
looking at the prostrate form at his
feet; then he turned and fled from the
scene us if pursued by a thousand de
Manuela sprang toher rect and looked
wildly round: a figure glided out from
the coiner of the theater, whence he
IihiI apparently watched the fight, and
stood before her.
He wus quivering from head to foot:
a llendlsh triumph gleamed in his
Hashing eyes. She needed no words to
reveal the truth to her. The tiger had
sprung, his prey lay before them.
"Maldllo! ' It was you in your vile
Jealousy who brought Ramon here.
Know then that you Ure the murderer
or your cousin, or my unhappy brother
Rafael." : '
Fausto turned deudjy pule. He saw
his diabolical scheme of vengeance re
coiling on his own Head; he staggered
back against the wall, and for a mo
ment all swam before his eyes. Man
uela rushed past blm Into the garden,
calling for help. For a moment he was
alone in the little waste space, with the
body of Rufuel lying u few feet (rum
him. Close by lay the long navaja
which hud fallen from the torero's
nerveless hand. He stooped und picked
It up; hero was un atcape from the fear
ful position to which his curbless Jeal
ousy hud r.rought him. He had Just
rulsed the weapon to a level with his I
heurt when u tail, dark flu ure appeared
In the doorway leading to the garden
nnd a deep voice cried:
"Hold. Impious boy. What Is this?
Itlnod! Murder! Is there not enough
hurm done already that you must seek
to add another victim?" . ' .
' And a man dressed in the long bluck
cassock anil shovel hat of a priest ad
vanced to Fausto and took the knife
from his hund. It was Don tlregorlo,
the family chaplain, who. taking his
evening walk In the garden, hud been
attracted by Manuelu' crle. ' He
turned to the body and bent over It.
"Me Is not dead. Take his feet while
I lift the head." he suid Imperiously.
Kuusto obeyed mechanically, and be
tween them they bore the body Into the

said the priest. "Now come with me,"
and laying his hand on the young man'i
shoulder with an action which, though
gentle, was a tlrm a iron, he led him
away. Fausto made no resistance.
This unlooked-for ending to the scheme
of revenge which his jealous mad
ness had given birth to. seemed to
have crushed the - life out of him.
Three strong passions" rule the Spanish
breast love, revenge and religious
zul; of these, the two first had turned
to venom in his blood, and he felt him
self passive in the hundi of the lust.
Kafue.1 Velasi'o recovered, but he
never again uppeared in the bull ring
of Madrid ax iluaplto the Kxpada. The
discovery of the kinship1 with Don
t'hiistolml ended his career as torero.
Thut this would be the case he knew
w hen he exacted a vow of secrecy from
his sister so solemn that she dared not
reveal the truth even to the man she
loved. Now, however, that the secret
had come out. by means of Kausto's
treachery, an explanution took place
between the lovers, and whut the
Jealous rival hud hoped would forever
separate Manuelu and llamon became
the means of their union.
The morning after the encounter be
tween Kufael und 'Ramon. Fausto set
out on a journey with Don liregotio.
No one knew tor certain what became
of him, but in a Trappist monastery
high up among the Pyrenees a monk,
renowned for his austerities, was
found, and the Hashing eyes which
gleamed through the covering which
hid the face of Brother Antonio from
the world forever were strangely like
those of the Scarlet Devil of the car
nival. (The Knd.l

Although the Lehigh Valley has not
puld u dividend for some time, the posi
tion of the stock has been greatly Im
proved during the lust year. The com
puny has been so materially strength
ened rinamiully thut a resumption of
dividends Is now dependent entirely
upon continued betterment of Ihe an
thracite coal trade. The latter is in a
state which may be characterized as
satisfactory. The Lehigh Valley is un
doubtedly beuellting by the improved
slute of the anthracite coal trade, and
while no otHclul announcement of earn
ings has been made or Is likely to be
made ut itlt time, the outlook is en
couraging for a resumption of dividends
on the stock in the more or less near
rut ure; say. the coming fall.
A New York dispatch to the Philadel
phia l'ress asserts, "on good authority,"
that the agreement entered Into In the
early part of January among the an
thracite coal-currylng lines for the
regulation of the coul output and t rattle
hus been Indefinitely abandoned. The
speclul committee Intrusted with the
tusk of urrunging the detulls of the or
ganization some days ugo decided to
miike no report and the general under
standing reached by the interested par
ties wus that no action should be taken
for the present looking to the enforce
ment of the measure. The reason as
signed for the abandonment of the as
sociation was the opposition leveled
against the measure. The clahn is that
the action of the New York and New
Jersey legislatures, in threatening to
investigate the organization, coupled
with the clamor in certain quarters in
duced the Indefinite postponement of
the contract, and it Is not likely thut
there will be any attempt to enforce It
for some time. The promised increase
In the price of coal will not be mude, und
the vurlous companies will continue,
as heretofore, to operate under their
Individual methods. In other words,
the agreement Is off for the present.

Philadelphia Stockholder: The tide
water anthracite coal trade has been
stimulated into activity by March
winds. Interior points are also profit
ing by favorable climatic conditions.
As u result consumption for March
will be normal, and not far from :i,uou.
Oiio tons. This will be an excess over
tne monthly estimate of L'.'iO.omi tons. It
was understood that the increase was
tacitly allowed when the unexpected de
mand developed early In the month.
Full circular prices are being obtained
at all eastern and western points, and
general satisfaction Is expressed over
net returns. A ruvorable reature of the
situation from the producers' stand
point is thut the demand Is from hand-to-mouth,
indicating thut the trade Is
bare of stocks, and that when it starts
In to provide fall requirements It will
make things lively. There Is consider
able talk In trade circles just now as
to production for April. We under
stand that it will be no greater than
3.ui Mi.ooil tons, and may be a liiHe less.
Prices will not be changed April 1, but
may be advanced May 1. It Is under
stood that the commltte in control of
the Industry determines the allotments
month by month. The interests can
produce their proportion, less or more,
as they see lit. with this reservation,
that they will be allowed to make up
any deficiency, and must make good
any excess. Knowledge that they will
come out of the year even naturally
renders them eager to secure as much
for their coal as possible month by
mouth. Hence the almost total absence

week in the year, is assured to

Just now of anything' that macks'' of
underselling. A development of Im
mense Importance to the tide-water
business is an agreement among coal
companies owning barge lines as to
rates from tide-water delivery points
to New Kngland points. Heretofore
this rate has always been from & to 15
cents below the figure at which the
charter should be made In the open
market. Companies not owning barges
were forced to make a price on coal,
open at both ends of the line, that much
less than the market in order to com
pete. The barge owners have agreed
(subject to change) to a 60-cent rate.
This Is 10 cents less than the open rate.
Independent coal men. however, are al
lowed to make a delivery price at Bos
ton, common points, equivalent to the
delivery price of the ba;e owning com
panies, thus placing all on equal basis
