On the Way to the Plaza De Toros.

Havana Is never thoroughly awake,
until this hour of sunset, and to-night

hours of the early morning merriment
Aroused from his roverlo by the
coming or a servant, Jack Is again led
to the dining hall, where ho finds tho
senorlta awaiting him.
She looks more ravlshlngly beauti
ful than before, nnd might charm tho
most confirmed bachelor: but Jack
touches tho cardboard In tho pocket
oter his heart, and lol before his
eyes appears an angelic face, a brown
haired, rosy-cheeked, blue-eyed lassie,
and he feels secure. That Is his talis
man; ho fears no fetish In existence.

Bights ho will see at tho grand recep

enters upon the subject declares that,

ots Into battle, Lola is but a woman,
with all the love of her sex for gay
scenes, where music and Jewels and
lovely damsels, as well as dashing
military gallants, hold cour.t with Terp
sichore. Then Smithers bobs up serenely
and proceeds to make himself quite
at homo at the table of this most
singular Cuban senorlta.
Jack Is struck by the fact, and
shoots a quick glance from one face
to the other, as a sudden suspicion
gallops through his brain. Can It bo
possible there Is any relation between
these .two? It would be remarkable,
indeed, after he .found himself thrown
into tho company of Lola at Santa Fe
and Smithers In Edinburgh,' to have
them turn out father and daughter;
and yet, after all, not more singular
than some other chapters In his ex
perience. At least, a mysterious tie
-connects them that Is more cogent
than the fact of their being both sworn
to tho service of Cuba libra.
Half an hour later tho two men,
"having altered their usual street dress
tor something more appropriate to the
captain general's reception, leave the
sylvan retreat in which they have
found such a refuge, and with Ah Sin
.as a bodyguard, head in the direction
of the Plaza de Toros,
Even Jack's phclgmatic, cold Yankee
blood is stirred by the picture present
ed by the wide square thronged with
people, as seen under tho numerous
Slltterlng electric lights, and a variety
of glowing colored lanterns hung for
effect upon the branches of orange
trees or over the booths of the street
It is a grand holiday for Havana, and
.J.er citizens desire to make the most
of Jt; for, in spite of the presenco of
so many soldiers, the merchants are
uneasy about the future, knowing that,
as of old, Cuba is proving the grave
yard for tho flower of Spain's army,
and It has become simply a test of
endurance. They see new troops con
stantly arriving and going,to the rront,
multitudes being brought back sick,
end shipped home or burled; while
Gomez and Macco and Garcia still hold
their own, sometimes making their
liiescnce known by a dasii into the
Tory suburbs of the capital.
In glancing around with some curi
osity as they make slow progress
They become quite sociable over the

opened to the crowd, Jack Is struck
with the merry nature of the general
assemblage. A gathering of people
celebrating a holiday throw dull care
.to the wind, and although In places
the crush is Intense, the little shrieks
ljotn senorltas and the exclamations
of the caballeros are uttered In sport.
"Look!" says Smithers, pulling his
Turning to the right, Jack notices
a large tent or booth that has been
raited, and under It may be seen for
a small fee the camp of the Spanish

known as the gipsy dance. Just beyond

Finally their turn arrives; thoro Is
ccmethlng of a squeeze, and at length
they find themselves beyond tho barriers.
In all Spanish speaking countries
the ono national sport Is bull-baltlng.
Wherever tho language of Spain pre
vails thero will bo round tho Plazo do
Toros, toward which the people flock
on holidays, as Britons do to tho crick
et and goir games and Americans tho
baseball field. That standard of
"sport" is a sure thermomctor to the
nature of tho people. Spaniards have,
It must bo conressed, a reputation for
cruelty far in excess of their Anglo
Saxon neighbors, though they also
possess many admlrablo qualities
when you como to know them at
home. Ono may witness a bullfight In
almost any South American country,
although hero and thoro an element
hostile to such bloody sport is gradu
ally gaining headway.
How a Black Bull Ran the Circus.
While in Mexico, Jack has been
a spectator at a bullfight, and that one
sight quite satisfied him. Ho never
wants to look upon another.
It Is with a keen Interest, however,
that he now glances around. The
placo has been gaily decorated. Pillar
and post are covered with bunting;
bright colors meet the eye In overy
dl.ectlon. Even tho ring where
such spirited action occurred only
n few hours before has had all traces
of the bullfight removed, and a por
tion of the crowd wanders over the
ttn-bark and wonders how it would
I feel to bo chased arourid the ring by
a savage beast with sharp horns, a
massive neck and steaming breath.
Already the vast amphitheater Is
beginning to show quite an animated
appearance as the audience scatters to
various quarters. -
Jack and Smithers, having secured
a position that affords a good view
cf the whole expanse, stand there to
comment upon It.
Somo parties are talking on the
right, and Jack catches the drift of
what they say. The leading speaker
Is an American, but his two compan
ions seem to be, ono a French tourist,
the other a Cuban merchant.
The New Yorker has" evidently at
tended tho great entertainment given
by the management tho previous after
noon, and as he is still filled with tho
to him, unusual spectacle of a bull
fight, he describes It In snatches,
while the Parisian exclaims in won
der, and the Cuban nods his head ap
provingly, as though proud of tho fact
that his land may provide an amuse
ment unequaled for desperate valor
and the shedding of gore since the
cays of Roman gladiators.
"Well, sir," the American Is saying,
"the black fellow overtook the bander-
fllero who had been throwing fancy
darts at him, and with one gigantic
sweep of his superb head he sent the
wretch flying through space. I never
saw such a sight. Jove! he must have
gene twenty feet high, his arms and
legs flying in every direction. Over
the barrier he came, struck this pil
lar, and fell in a heap. They carried
him away to tho Hospital San Merced,
but 've since heard he Is dead."
"Mon DIeu! It must have been a won
derful sight," declares tho Gaul, as he
svrveys the high fence.
"Carramba! what other country
could produce such a rare, spectacle?"
arks the Cuban proudly, as he puffs
away at his clgarro.
"I know of nothing that can ap
proach It unless It be our annua!

"Was that all?" asks Paris.
"All? Not by a Jug full. Ah? Well.
I wish you could have seen It. That
was only tho beginning, my dear man.
Tho bull seemed to be possessed of a
devil; like a crazy Chinaman running
amuck, he saw only foes around him.
The way he tossed those chaps was a
caution. Men and horses fell victims;
he soon had them so badly rattled
that not one would enter tho ring.
They sat on the fence and defied him,
and even then if the rascals made a
rush every perch in that quarter was
"And the matador the unequaled
Peplto?" asks the Cuban eagerly.
"Oh, he was game enough, I give
you my word. He lacked discretion,
that was all. But he did better than

"Ah, better, say you? Peplto always

The Gaul laughs, tho Cuban scowls,
and then Joins In the merriment.
"Carajcl thon If tho only Poplto
could not master the black devil, who
did?" ho demands.
"No ono. All tho purses In Hnvann
did not tempt nnothor matador 'to
pick up tho sword."
"Then tho bull Is still alive?"
"Very muoh so, I should Imagine.
Listen; I think I hear him now." .
"Senor, you make no mistake. That

heard many such bellow, but nono glvo

may not contain tho multitudes of peo

"It would bo a torrlblo thing, I am
thinking, If tho old bruto smashed

that would follow. Tho band Is
directly In his way. Wo would have

and makes up his mind on the spot
that tho American Is a keen observer,
for there appears to bo a frail looli
about tho barrier which ho really does
Smithers thoughts appear to run In
something of tho same groove.
"Suppose the vicious old chap should
take a notion to Introduce himself to

"I do not llko to say. It would seem

PERILS OF THE STOWAWAY.

wouldn't stowaway. Never."
He regarded thoughtfully a crack

"Two lads I know stowed away In

and they thought it was ghosts. The
next night and the next day they
heard this scratching, very loud and
fierce. The next night It was weaker.
The next it stopped. When they camo
to open the hatches at tho voyage
end they found the skinny Jiody of a
stowaway that had starved to death.
Then they wished they hadn't "been so
"It never pays to try to como into
this country as a stowaway. Cap
tains are mighty careful to seo that
they let no stowaways land. Why?
Why, because any captain that brings
in a stowaway to America is liable to
be fined $2,500.
"I'vo been bravo and reckless tR

COL. GODY LOSES

TITLED TO A DIVORCE.
DEFENDANT WINS ALL POINTS
Judge Scott of Wyoming Say that the
Plaintiff Failed to Prove Any of tho
Allegations In His Complaint.
SHERIDAN. Wyo. The district
?ourt hero on Thursday refused tho
petition or Colonol William F. Cody
(Buffalo Bill) for a divorce.
A decision In tho case was not ex
pected beforo Friday at the earliest,
but tho court room was filled with
residents of Shorldun and tho sur
rounding country when It wnB given.
After tho reading of tho depositions
was finished the lawyers for both
sides announced that they would sub
mit the enso without argument. After
a short recess Judge R. II. Scott ask
ed the attorneys for the defendant,
Wilcox & Hnlllgan of North Platte,
Neb., to amond their answer In tho
enso by striking out those sections
which dealt with charges against
Colonel Cody's conduct In Chicago
and his early excesses at Fort Mc
l'herson. When this was done tho
court found entirely In favor of tho
defendant, Mrs. Louisa Cody,
Judgo Scott delivered nn opinion of
considerable length, reviewing tho al
legations nnd evidence and giving his
"Tho law of tho state does not
make Incompatibility n ground for di
vorce, but It does read that oxtremo
cruelty, rendering tho condition of
either party to tho mnrrlago contract
intolerable is sufficient ground to al

"Tho first cause or action In this
case is tho charge of potsonlng on De

thereto. Tho evldenco wholly falls to

administered not poison, but remedies
which she deemed benoflclal to him.
His Inability to speak on thin occa
sion did not como from these rem
edies, but came from his excessive
use of intoxicating liquors at tho ban
quet board, and was as humiliating to
tho defendant as to the plaintiff.
"The unhapplnosH caused by the ac
tions of tno plaintiff Is shown by tho
letter of their daughter Arta Thorpe,
whose beautiful character shone out
from her unhappy homo and tho wnrds
of her letter written beforo her death:
'Oh, papa, why did he do It. My heart
Is Just broken over it. Oh, why did he
Judge Scott also found that tho
charge of unbecoming ncttoiiB on the
part of the defendant toward tho col
onel's guests was not proven, that
thero was no evidence that she had
even threatened her husband's life
and that when attending tho funeral
of her daughter Arta at Rochester, N.
Y., In February 1904, sho offered a
permanent reconciliation and no an
swer over came to this. He then con
tinued: "She was an over-Indulgent mother
and wlfo who always took pride In his
success and always looked forward to
his home-coming and made great pre
parations to receive him.
"Sho entertained hl3 guests with
cordiality. She did hot use profane
language. Tho poisoning of his pet
dogs was accidental. She never rpoke
disrespectfully of him to Ms friends
or guests. She always accompanied
him to the depot on his departure nnd
was there to receive him on his re
turn. In return for, this wifely dovo
tion the plaintiff has been cruel to
her and heaped Indignities upon her."
