DREAMING BY THE FIRE.
When, alone with my soul, I am tfttln
In the firelight's golden gleam.
Budly watching the Hhttdonn flitting:.
I iccm to slumber and dream;
A thousand deep fountains of feeling
Gush forth with melodious flow
Like the mimic of wlndhurps stealing
Through the twilight, sweet andilow.
Afloat on swift tides of emotion
As bluer with tears as the seas,
1 drift through a measureless ocean
Of sorrowful memories;
And out of the misty sea spaces
Fair phantoms around me rise
How well I remember their faces.
The light of their soulful eyes!
Afar, through the nebulous distance
A splendor ahlnos like a flame,
And voices, with tender insistence,
Lovingly call BM by name.
From mist, and from fonm, and the hollow
Sad sound of this sobblng'sea,
These phantom forms beckon and follow.
These voices whisper to me.
I know that these misty sea spaces,
These shapes, are not what they seem.
That the voices, the eyes, the facea.
Are only ghosts of a dream.
Long ago a strange guest came, unbidden.
An angel, out of the skies,
And !n graves nre these faces hidden
And dark are the shining eyes.
Hut still when alone I am sitting
In the'.lrellght'R golden gleam
Sadly watching the. shadows Hitting
They haunt my soul in my dream.
Charles W. llubner, In Atlanta Constitu
tion. 1 ELSACUDIDOR
By Manlev H. Pike
WQKN Will Low got honrC from
northern Mexico, where he had
been absent a year, in company with his
father, who owned some property there,
Charles Foster and myself didn't lose
n moment in rushing over to see him,
lis you may suppose, yet wc hardly
knew him at llrst, he had grown so much
taller and stouter, while as for his com
plexion, I don't give the slightest Idea
of it by saying that he wns sunburned.
Why, he was only a shade or two light
er than it genuine Congo negro.
Uut we found the same old Will un
der the tan, and such a chattering as we
three made trying to give a full ac
count of a whole year's happenings la
half an hour!
After awhile, however, we managed
to quiet down sufficiently to go upstairs
and look over Will's collection of cu
riosities, ranging all the way from
tarantulas' nests up to spears and war
clubs, Among them was a chestful
of Mexican clothing and ornaments,
rich and elegant enough, some of them ;
and while Charley was turning these
over, he came upon something which
made him Inquire, wonderingly:
"Why, Will, what under tho sun do
you keep tills old thing among these
nice clothes for7"
It was a common leather boot,
wrinkled, dusty, and half worn out,
wrupped around with a stout rawhide
rope, which we at once recognized as
n lasso. The boot couldn't have amount
ed to much in its best days, and now,
with a ragged cut extending all along
the sole, as if it had been ripped up
v.ith a dull knife, it was only fit for
the ash-barrel. No wonder Charley
asked the question.
"Hoys," sniil Will, "I think more of
this old boot thnn of anything else you
see here. It's B memento of the nar
rowest escape I ever had or expect to
have; and besides, it reminds me when
ever I look nt it that there ore dif
ferent kinds of ability in this world,
and that you must not. always judge a
person according to your own idea of
what he ought to be."
"Tell us aliout it, won't you?" urged
Charley and .
And Will, holding the old boot in his
hand, sat down between us, nnd be
gan: "After I was fairly settled out there
on the Lot Pueblos ranch, I must say
1 felt very lonesome. Father wns away
rnost of the time about his business,
and it wasn't generally convenient to
take mo with hiin, so I was left to my
own resources for amusement, and few
enough they were.
"The ranch buildings were simply
two adobe shanties, covered with red
tiles, looking more like sheds than
houses, and no better inside than out.
The Mexican nnd Indian peons, or hired
men, lived in one, and Don Mereno, the
owner. In the other.
"The don wns the proudest and laz
iest mortal it lias even been my luck
to meet with, lie did nothing ull day
but lie on a bench in the sun, smoking
cigarettes except when he took a nop
which was about half tlie time. Oc
casionally he'd ride over the ranch,
superintending matters, not often, for
it seemed to be too great an exertion
"You see, the don was a pure Span
iard descended straight from one of
the old conquerors of Mexico, I believe
and lie wns so proud of the fact that
he spent all his tiny in thinking what
a great man he was, and so had none left
for any other purpose. If he had lived
in a town, he would soon have had the
nonsense taken out of him, but out
there on the plains he seldom saw any
one except his servants, nnd his con
ceit nnd laziness hnd plenty of room
"His son, I'ablo, wns entirely differ
ent. He w as about our age, nnd a hand
some toy, too. Such n rider you never
saw; nnd he could do things with a
laso that you wouldn't believe without
seeing t he in.
"He really managed the ranch, and
his father would have had a hard time
of it without him.
"lie thought nothing of riding 50 or
on miles a dny, and didn't seem to know
vhat the word 'tired' means, for he
had first snt on n horse when four years
o'd, and for years had scarcely been
oit of the saddle, except to sleeps
not always for that Talk about rid
ing horseback, boys why, Pablo lived
on horseback I
"Now, you can guess that beside such
a fellow I wasn't of much account, com
ing from a New England town, where
if we take a ride now and then on some
old carriage horse, it's as much as we
do. Of course, I began riding as soon
as I got to Los Pueblos, because if I
didn't there was little else to do; but
I could no more sit in a saddle all day
mid keep up with Pablo nnd his vaque
ros than I could By, liesides, I was a
sight to laugh at even when I was do
ing my best bouncing up nnd down
like a churn-handle, swaying from one
side to the other, nnd quite often go
ing head-first over my horse's ears to
the ground. The vaqucros used to laugh
at and make fun of me behind my
back, from morning till night, and,
although Pablo's ideas of a Spanish
gentleman's conduct made him act as
if he never noticed my uwkward
ness, yet I could see that he despised
me for not being able to do what every
child ought, as he looked nt it. All
this used to grind me terribly, boys,
I can tell you.
"On mv side, I didn't think well of
I Pablo. I was greatly surprised when
1 found that lie could scorcely read
a wonl or ins own language not so
much as I could after having studied
Spanish a single month and that he
actually didn't know the meaning of
the Latin prayers he repeated every day;
and, what was worse, didn't enre to.
lie was more ignorant of arithmetic
than the youngest boy in the grammar
school, nnd couldn't udd up four or
live numbers without using counters,
to snve his life. lint what took me
aback most was that he didn't seem
to know that he knew nothing, or to
want to lie anything different from
what he was then had no ambition,
"Here we boys are, each with his
plans for the future Fred wants to be
a lawyer, Charley a business man, and
I an engineer; but such idens never
entered Pablo's head. I don't believe
he ever once thought even whether he
would continue herding cattle all his
life, but just went on doing it without
thinking anything at all.
"So, you see, Pablo and I had a con
tempt for each other, and after awhile
we kept apart as entirely as we could.
He was very kind and hospitable,
though, and nlwuys took care that I
got the beBt of everything, and didn't
run Into danger, which I was very like
ly to do because of hy habit of taking
long walks about the country alone.
"This was another thing Pablo
couldn't understand why any sensible
person should ever walk a step when
he could just as well ride, and especial
ly why he should enjoy doing it. I be
lieve ho used to think me a little out
of mind when he saw me starting out
for a ten or fifteen-mile tramp; nnd,
indeed, it wasn't exactly a wise thing
on my part, for I ran more or less risk
every time I went, on account of the
cattle, and particularly one old bull,
called 'El Sacudldor' (the 'thrower' or
"This bull had killed several horses,
and severely injured two or three
vnqueros; but on Moreno wouldn't
hear of his being killed nnd even re
fused to let them saw off his horns.
This was because tlie bull was pure
Spanish, like the don, who seemed to
think that miserable, half-breed Mexi
cans ought to feel highly honored if
n real old Spanish bull found any pleas
ure in goring them.
"The animal generally pastured in a
certain place nt some distance from the
house; yet you never could tell when
he might take a fancy to go charging
nil over the ranch, attackingeverything
that came In his way; for, though bulls
ant not always savage, they have crazy
spells, during which they seem to en
joy doing mischief, and would rather
kill a man than not.
"One morning I was going through
a long, deep ravine a. favorite walk of
mine when I heard a sort of puffing
noise, and a great rattling of gravel.
Looking up, what Bhould I see but El
Sucudidor coming around a bend about
30 yard iu front of me, head down,
tail" up, and evidently just as full of
ugliness as he could hold. Good gra
cious, what a savage brute he looked!
And what a place that was to meet him
Inl The walls of the ravine went up
almost perpendicularly, and, being of
conglomerate earth and gravel mixed
together a monkey couldn't have
climbed them, while tbe path wasn't
more than six feet wide, if as, much,
and right In the middle of it the bull
wus coming down ii'ion me st a quick
"Hoys, to say that I was frightened
It nothing. If anybody's hair ever
nctually stands on end, mine did then;
and every drop of blood in me seemed
turned into pins and needles, I was so
terrified. 1 hadn't a weapon of any.
sort, not even a knife though that
didn't matter, for nothing short o! a
heavy rifle would hove saved me, and
perhaps that wouldn't.
"Fortunately, I hnd sufficient pres
ence of mind left not to run. I stood
my ground, and thus gained a few sec
onds, for El Sacudidor stopped short
on seeing me, nnd began bellowing and
tearing up the ground with his hprns,
while he tried to make out what I was.
"You see he was not accustomed to
the sight of a man on foot, and very
likely had never seen one before, which
slightly puzzled and made him doubt
ful as to how he should act. If I had
been on horseback, he wouldn't have
wasted much time in reconnoitering.
"I tell you, fellows, he was a most
ferocious-looking beast, with his red
eyes, great nostrils, and horns sharp aa
spears, with the foam hanging from
his mouth in long ropes. The bulls we
have cast are no more like him than a
house cat is like a Bengal tiger.
"To see those horns dig up the hard
earth as if it hnd been cheese, and to
think that in another minute they
would be coming down on. me like an
express train, with hundreds of pounds
of solid flesh to push them along
something I can't attempt to make you
realize. It was simply horrible!
"Suddenly the bull threw up his tall,
gave a loud bellow and sprang forward
with his horns almost touching the
"I had shut my eyes anil given up all
hope, when something sfruck me iu tfie
face the noose of a liisso. Looking up,
I saw Pablo Moreno cheeking his horse
upon the very brink of the bank above,
so close that the animal's feet crumbled
" 'Put the lasso under your arms!
Quick! quick!' screnmed Pablo,
"His gesture told me what to do, and
running close to the wall, I passed the
noose around my shoulders.
"'Hold on to it!' called Pablo, and
I was drawn up Into the air just us El
Sacudidor thundered beneath me with
a toss of his head which sent one of his
pointed hortisiilong the Mile of my boot,
cutting the tough leather like a knife.
One instant more of delay would have
given that horn something softer to cut.
"Hefore the bull could turn about to
attack me ngain, I was sitting sufe at
the lop beside Pablo, who told me how
be chanced to come to my rescue.
"Having seen El Sacudidor entering
the ravine, he had galloped to the eJige
to watch his movements nnd looking
over, discovered me.
"I don't believe you'll dispute me,
boys, when I say that no one not
trained ns he had been could have pos
sibly dared what he did. If he hnd
stopped n single second to think what
plan he should pursue if lie hnd hesi
tated the least bit in the world I
should have been gored to death or
trampled into a jelly under tho great
"But he did exactly the right thing
exactly in the nick of time, nnd I was
saved. I had made a great mistake In
"I told him this, and much more,
when I wns able to speak again; and on
his side he acknowledged that he hnd
often envied me what I knew. So, with
out any particular agreement, we be
oemc firm friends, and went to work to
"The result was that before I left Los
Pueblos I could ride a horse, drive cat
tic and throw a lasso in what I'm con
ceited enough to sny is a very skillful
manner, while Pablo picked up Lntin.
English nnd a dozen other things with
most surprising quickness. He soon
found the use of them, too, for a ras
cally speculator would have cheated
his father out of half the ranch if Pablo
hadn't been able to read the documents
and detect the swindle.
"El Sacudidor was killed as soon as
the don learned of my adventure. 1
suppose the old gentleman thought
that a bull which so far forgot Spanish
hospitality as to attack his master's
guest couldn't be of the genuine race,
and would appear to better advantage
as beef for the guest's consumption.
Anyhow, that was what he became.
And I had the satisfaction of eating
some of his sirloin tough enough it
"When I came away I brought the
boot and Insso with me," finished Will,
carefully putting his treasures back In
their former resting place, "and I shall
keep them ns long ns I live, to remind
me of the time when my friend Pablo
Moreno pulled me up from before the
horns of El Sncudidor." (lolden Days.
