THE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE, NORTH PLATTE, NEBRASKA.
The Cuba of the days of
Weyler and Gomez and the
ragged, half-starved bands
of "insurrectos" furnishes
an admirable background
for this delightful story, in
which love, war and the
search for a buried treasure
are the principal strands
that are interwoven to make
a plot that is worthy of the
mind of Rex Beach. The
author of "The Spoilers,"
"The Barrier," and other
stirring tales, has produced
his most thrillinq story in
The Valley of Delight.
In nil probability your first view of
the'volley of tho Yumurl will bo from
the Her-nltngo of Montscrrute, for It Ib
there that tho cochoros drive you.
There yon overlook tho fairest sight In
nil Christendom "tho loveliest valley
'In tho world," ns Humboldt called It
for the Yumurl nestles right nt your
feet, n vale of pure delight, a gllmpso
of Paradise that bowlldcrs the eyq and
fills the foul with ecstasy
Standing beside tho shrine of Our
Lady of Montscrrntc, you will sou be
yond th't cleft through which tho river
emerges nnother hill, Ln Cumbre, from
which tho view Is wonderful, and your
driver may tell you about tho splendid
homes that used to grace Us slopes
itn the golden days when Cuba had an
aristocracy. Your cochero may point
lout a ccrtnln grove of orango trees,
now little more than a rank tangle,
'and tell you about tho qulntn .of Don
Esteban Varonn, and lta hidden treas
ure: about llttlo Esteban nnd Itosa, tho
twins; and about Sebastian, tho giant
slave, who died ln fury, taking with
him tho secret of tho well.
The Spanish Main is rich ln talcs of
treasure-trove, for when tho Antilles
were most affluent they were least so'
euro, and men wero put to strange
shifts to protect their fortunes. Cer
tain hoards, like jewels of tragic JiIb
tory, In time assumed a sort of evil
personality, not Infrequently exercising
a dire lnfluenco over tho lives of thtiso
who chanced to fnll under their spells.
It was as If tho money wero accursed,
for certainly tho seekers often came
to evil. Of such a character was tho
Varona treasure Don Estebnn himself
was neither better nor worso than
other men of hts time, and although
part of the money he hid was wrung
from the toll of slaves and tho trafllc
In their bodies, much of It was clean
enough, nnd In tlmo tho earth purified
It all. Since his acts tnndo so deep an
Impress, and since the trcasuro ho left
played so big n part In the destinies of
those who camo after him, It Is well
that somo accpunt of theso matters
should be given.
i She story, please remember, Is an
old one; It has been often told, and In
the telling and retelling It Is but natural
that a certain glamour, a ccrtnln
tropical cxtravngance, should attach to
It, therefore you should make allow
ance for some exaggeration, somo ac
cretions duo to the lapse of time. In
the main, however, It is well authenti
cated and runs parallel to fact.
Dounn Itosa Varonn lived barely long
enough to learn thnt she had given
birth to twins. Don Estebnn, whom
people knew ns u grim man, took tho
blow of his sudden berenvemont as bo
came ono of his strong liber. Leaving
the priest upon his knees nnd tho doc
tor busied with the bnblcs, ho strode
through the house and out Into tho
sunset, followed by tho walls of tho
' Don Esteban was at heart a solflsh
man, nnd now, therefore, ho felt a sul
len, fierce resentment mingled with
kls grltf. What trick was this? ho
asked himself. Whnt hnd ho done to
Hcrit such misfortune? Hnd he not
Made rich gifts to tho church? Had ho
not knelt and prayed for his wife's
safe delivery and then hung his gifts
upon the sacred Image, ns Loyola hud
hung, up his weapons before thnt other
counterpart o'f Our Lady? Don Este
ban scowled at the memory, for those
items wero of the finest.
He- looked up from his unhappy
musings to find n gigantic bare
footed negro standing before him.
The slave was middle-aged; his kinky
hair was growing gray ; "but ho was of
superb proportions, and tho muscles
which showed through the rents In his
cotton garments were as smooth nnd
supple as those of a stripling, Ills
black fuco was puckered with grief,
as he began:
"Master, is It true that Donnn Rosa
" Tho fellow choked.
"Yes," Esteban nodded, wearily, "she
Is dead, Selmstlnn.'l
Tears came to Sebastian's eyes aud
overflowed his checks; ho stood mo
tionless, striving to volco Ids sympathy,
At length ho said:
uHlw wns too good for this world.

She gained nothing by dying."
With n grnvo thoughtfulnoss which
proved him. superior to tho ordlnnry

"Truol She had nil that nny wom
an's heart could desire, but in return
for your goodness she gnvo you chil

gained an heir, and a beautiful girl
baby who will grow to bo nnother
Donnn Rosa. I grieved ns you grieve,
once upon a time, for my woman died
In childbirth, too. You remember? But
my daughter lives, nnd she has Drought
sunshine Into my old age. Thnt is the
purpose of children." Ho pnused and
shifted his weight uncertainly, digging
his stiff bluck toes Into the dirt. After
a time he said, slowly: "Excellency!
Now, nbout tho well i"
"Yes. Whnt nbout It?"
"Did the Donnn Itosa confide her
sharo of tho secret to anyone? Thoso
priests nnd those doctors, you know "
"She died without speaking."
"Then It rests between you nnd me?"
"It docs, unless you have babbled."
"Master I" Sebnstinn drew himself
up and there wns rent dignity ln his
"Understand, my whole fortune Is
thorc everything, even to tho deeds of
patent for tho plantations. If I thought
there wns danger o you bctruylng mo
I would have your tongue pulled out
and your eyes torn from their sockets."
Tho block mnn spoke with n sim
plicity that carried conviction : "Times
uro unsettled, Don Esteban, and death
comes without warning, You are
known to bo tho richest man In this
province and these government officials
nro robbers. ' Suppose I should he left
alono? What then?"
The planter considered for a mo
ment "Well, when my children nro old
enough to hold their tongues they will
havo to bo told. If I'm gone, you shall
be the ono to tell them. Now lcavo me ;
this Is no time to speak of such things."
Sebastian went as noiselessly ns ho
had come. On his way back to his quar
ters ho took tho path to tho well tho
place where most of his tlmo was ordi
narily spent. Sebastian hnd dug this
well, nnd with his own hands he had
beautified Its surroundings until they
wero the loveliest on the Varonn
grounds. It was Sebastian's task to
keep this place green, and thither ho
took his way, from force of habit.
Through tho twilight camo Pancho

with a narrow face and bold, close-set
eyes. Spying Sebastian, ho began i

Sebastian's face wns like n mask
carved from ebony. "Of what does this
treasure consist?" ho Inquired. "I havo

"Of gold, of Jewels, of silver bars

In the dnys following the birth of
his children and the denth of his, wife,
Don Esteban Varona, ns hnd been Ids
custom, steered n middle course In
politics, In that way mannglng to nvold
n clnsh with the Spanish ofliclnls who
ruled the island, or nn open break with
his Cuban neighbors, who rebelled be-
ncath their wrongs. Estebnn dcnlt
diplomatically with both fnctlons nnd
went on raising slaves and sugar to his
own great profit.
Tho twins. Estebnn and Itosn. devel
oped Into healthy children and became
tho pride of Sebastian and his daugh
ter, Into whoso caro they had been
given. . As for Evnngellna, the young
ncgress, sho grew tall nnd strong nnd
handsome, until she was tho finest
slavo girl ln tho neighborhood.
Then, one day, Don Estebnn Vnronu
remarried, and tho Donnn Isabel, who
had been a famous Hubann benuty,
enmo to live at tho qulnta. Tho daugh
ter of Impoverished parents, she had
heard nnd thought much about tho
mysterious trcasuro of La Cumbre.,
Before the first fervor of his honey-
ntoon cooled the groom began to fear
thnt ho hnd mado a serious mlstnke.
Donnn Isnbcl, ho discovered, wns both
vnln'and selfish. Not only did sho
crnvo luxury and display, but with sin
gular persistence she demanded to
know all about her husband's financial
Now Don Estebnn wns no longer
young; ngo hnd soured him with sus
picion, nnd when onco he saw hlmgclf
us the victim of a mercenary mnrrlngo
he turned bitterly ngnlnst his wife.
Her curiosity he sullenly resented, nnd
he unblushlngly denied his possession
Of any considerable wealth. In fnct,
ho tried with malicious Ingenuity to
ranko her bcllcvo him a poor man. But
Isnbcl wns not of tho sort to be readily
deceived. Finding her nrts nnd co
quetries of no avail, she flew Into n
rngc, nnd n furious qun'rrcl ensued
the first of mnny. For tho lndy could
not rest without knowing nil there wns
to know nbout the trensure.
Sho searched the qulntn, of course,
whenever she had a, chance, but sho
discovered nothing with tho result
thnt tho mystery begjin to engross her
whole (bought. She pried Into the ob
scurest corners, sho questioned tho
slaves, she lny awnko at night listening
to Esteban s breathing, In the hope of
surprising his secret from his dreams.
At length a time camo when they lived
ln frank enmity; when Isnbel never
spoke to Estebnn except In reproach or
auger, and when Esteban unlocked his
Hps only to taunt his wlfo with the
fnct thnt sho had been thwarted de
spite her cunning.
It wns only natural under such con
ditions thnt Donnn Isnbel should lenrn
to dlsllko her stepchildren Estebnn
hnd told her frankly that they would
Inherit whatever fortuno ho possessed.
As may bo Imagined, sho found wnys
to vent her spite upon the twins. Sho
widened her hatred so ns to Include old
Sebastian nnd his daughter, nnd even
went so fnr ns to persecute Evnnge
llna's sweetheart, n slave nnmed Asen
slo. It had not taken Donna Isnbel long
to guess the reason for Sebastian's
many privileges, nnd ono of her first
offorts hnd been to win the old man's
confidence. It was ln vnln, however,
that she llattcred nnd cajoled, or
stormed and threatened; Sebastian
withstood her us n towering celba with
Btunds tho summer hent nnd the win
His firmness mado her vindictive,
nnd so In tlmo sho laid a "scheme to
estrange him from hts master.
Dounn Isabel wns crafty. Sho began
to complain about Evangollnn, but It
wns only ufter mnny months thnt she
ventured to suggest to her husband
thnt ho sell tho girl. Estebnn, of
course, refused point-blank ; he wns too
fond of Sebastian's daughter, he de
clnred, to think of such a thing.
"So, Hint Is It," sneered Donna Isa
bel. "Well, -Bho Is young nnd shnpely
nnd hnndsome, us wenches go. I rather
suspected you woro fond of her"
With difficulty Estebnn restrained an
oath. "You mlstnko my meaning," ho
snld sillily. "Sebastian has served mo
fnlthfully, and Evnngellna plays with
my children. Sho Is good to them; sho
Is more of u mother to them than you
hnvo ever been."
"Is that why you dress her llko n
ludy? Baht A likely story 1" Isabel
tossed her fine, dnrk hend. "I'm not
blind ; I see whnt goes on about me. I
won't hnve thnt wench ln my house."

for my money," ho roared.
"Of course I did I Do you think a

In the midst of their agitation they
heard sumu one weeping ; there camo u

Into the room.
She fell upon her knees before them
