Twenty jears apo, there was in a
Mexican-Spaiiihli town of Mexico, a
nance hall known as the "Tholl Ale
Kre." Not a swj-ll place, by any means.
For it was mostly adobe, as refjurds
construction, mid flic floor and tables

and the assnyers and other employes

an American-owned mine, the "Santa
Cru." men were all Americans yoiinjr
fellows frefh from engineering col
leges and the like. And "Santa Cruz"
not being the liveliest place in the
world, they were in the habit of turn
ing themselves, loose on occasions in
this same Tivoli even to George
Hewitt, the M. E., who, being older
and more experienced than the other?,

"La Conchitn," "Little Shell," was
the star of the place and admired
alike by Mexicans, Spaniards and Grin
gos. And no wonder, either, for Con

pretty. All the Americans hijd made
love to her, by means of pantomine.
and sighR, mostly, not knowing the
Spanish to otherwise express their
feelings. But even those who could
talk her language were frowned upon
by Concha to none of them would she
have anything to say. And as for ever
the Mexicans and Spaniards in des
pair they had long ago retired, to
worship at other shrines. Of truth.
Conchita was "dificil!"
Mr. George Hewitt, M. K., found it
otherwise. As a "matter of form,"
more than anything else, he had sent
many bunches of big poppies and
crimson roses to the pretty dancer,
likewise taking his drinks of an even
ing close to the rickety stage on
which she, with true Spanish grace
and verve, danced the exquisite Span
ish "Jota" and to please the Mexicans,
the "Jarabe." As a matter of form

white violet. While poor little Concha

does happen to be good, she rarely
gets the renutation; and anvway, no
one could liken the "Little Shell" to a
violet. More was she like the flaring,
glowing crimson of her country's cac
But Conchita, no doubt attracted by
Hewitt's indifference, fell wildly in
love wilh him. And, whatever else
she knew, control, hiding of one's feel
ings, was not therein counted; even
from her passing glance at Hewitt,
one could tell. Though, for that mat

tion. Naturally, Hewitt was shocked
he had done nothing to win the girl's
fancy; why should she be fond of him?
However, so long as she was pues! if

rode to her.
Following out bis theory that, let-

gan to bestow some of his idle mom
ents on the pretty Concha. To his
surprise, he found that she was as
thoroughly pure and sweet-minded as
his own fiance at home. Of coc.rse.
sue had no mind, no training, no edu
cation to speak of, and of the Anglo
Saxon belief that a man's wife should
be his friend, companion and help
mate, she had no conception. To her
the man one loves is a superior mortal
(wilh capitals) to be worshiped, wait
ed upon, indulged, petted and com
forted to the last degree. One of the
customs of the Dark Ages, as Hewitt
amusedly thought, but still a pleasant
one. For without doubt it was sooth
ing to a man to occasionally find a
woman who could think of him alone;
whose few leisure h"urs were spent in
devising plans for his comfort ad
amusement, and who even thought it
the best of all good things to merely
be allowed to gaze at and worship
him. I'rpbably some men would have
found it embarrassing Hewitt
didn't! For more and more of his
time was spent with Concha, until nt
last the aunt who cared for her and
watched her by day and by night,
hinted openly nt the marriage. Con
chn laughed she hnd not thought of
marriage! Of course, she hnd no
doubt but what it would be, later
people who truly loved each other nl
wnys married! And loving her as did
the "Americano," surely he would be
as wretched avvny from her as 'she
would be without him. In truth, she
was too happy in merely loving the
man to think or care for the future.
Antonio, her cousin, did think nbout
it. however, being a "Gachupln" of
some business sense, besides having a
deep and not altogether selfish passion
for his little cousin. He had nlwavs I
loved her, and her oft-repented "No"
to him hnd been the cause. n she was
many times reminded, of his taking to
lequiln and coiniuc. And even after
her refusal, and though he was wildly

himself. So that, after watching the

route to her dressing room. He wait
ed to have another copita before join
ing her, however, thinking that she
would thereby have more time to get
wrapped up, and be ready for him
when he did come. He was going to
take her home afterward and talk to
her for anhouror so longer she would
not permit. So, after tossing off the
copita of brandy, he lit a cigarette and
moved off toward the dressing room.
A strangled shriek of "Dios Mio!
Help!" reached him as he turned the
corner. Thinking it came from the
dancing room he paid no attention.
It was repeated, and he recognized
Conchita's voice. He ran to her room.
She was struggling in the furious
grasp of Antonio, who was swearing
by all the saints that she should never
marry Gringo; she must marry him,
Antonio, who loved her. To the devil
with the Americano!

itt flung himself upon the drunken
Mexican and slammed him against the
wall, shaking him ns a terrier would a

sharp just graze his coat a machete,

never knew howit happened, and could
never account for it, in the twinkling
of an eye, that same machete was in
his own grasp, and he was thrusting

would-be murderer. There was only a
sickening gurgle, a last dying curse,

"You must go, querido mio," she
whispered, brokenly. "It is dangerous

knew the danger, as Hewitt could not.
His first thought was to brave it
out. He had not meant to kill Anton
io he could get off free. But how
could he prove it? Concha loved him
her testimony would not be taken.
Besides, he, an American, had killed a
Mexican, and whether rightfully or
not, would never be considered. As he
begnn to realize what it meant, Hewitt
shivered! There would be no trial

As they embraced for good-bye.
Concha murmured, weeping that she
would always be faithful waiting for
him until he came. And wrought up
to a high pitch, as he realized how the
girl loved him, Hewitt swore that he
would return. And then, with a last
kiss, he went.
Then Concha knelt down by the dead

It all came out as she had thought.
Hewitt got safely out of the way, but
she was tried and convicted for the
murder of her cousin, Antonio. It
means hanging, or a life sentence,
generally, but in the view of the cir
cumstances, nnd her youth and here
tofore perfect character. Concha got
only 25 yearn in San Juan. She ac
cepted it gladly for the Americano.
And before imprisonment, she was al
lowed to write Hewitt, telling him that
she would love him nlwavs, and would
-nil. lur mm ana marrv him in 25
years. Rhe knew that no answer
would come to her in San .Tiian, but
she wanted to write him of her con

that, however, few women die in San

Hewitt In the meantime, his wild
onfs sown, hns married his sweetheart
(with money) and is a most exemplary
husband. At rare intervals he thinks
of Conehn. nnd wonders what wan her

course, he is fat nnd ungninlv, nnd
