One of the  girls frequently accompanied her, and  Romualdo was always at her service.  Oue eveuinkj tbe young man and his  teacher extended their ride into the  mountains, where there was a pretty  waterfall.  They had reached the place, and  Romualdo was about to dismount,  when a black Mexican wearing a large  sombrero stepped from,behind n. great  rock with a carbine in his hand. "Stop,  senor," he said. "You need not dismount. I think ' you are Romualdo  Poyereina."  , The trembling youth answered that  bis uame had been uttered correctly.  Twp horsemen emerged from the bushes, both of them armed and looking as  ugly as the man who had spoken.  "I was dumb with terror aud unable  to move," said Miss Lorena. "I could  hardly realize what was happening until I discovered that they were leading  our horses away into tho mountains. 1  began to cry and beg them to lot us go  home.

The Texas girl and her escort had  been captured by throe brigands, members of the baud of Lugo (Jortinas. oue  of the most desperate of modern criminals.

Ife, reached the hacienda before morning, where he found  everything in confusion and the whole  family in the greatest distress.  Quickly explaining, the situation to  his father, the,young man fell upon his  knees and confessed his love for the  American girl.  ' "No'ruatter as to that," said tbe gen-'  erous old man. "Wo must save her.  Truly, I know this Cortinas. ancl a  more-heartless, merciless wretch never  lived. Take faithful, oid, Balmaceda'  with .you.

The-Texas girl was not yet aware of  the fact that she was being ransomed,  and she saidT"When I saw the pack-  mule unloaded aud (he sacks containing great gold bars and.coined gold  emptied in a groat heap. I stood like  one in a dream, wondering what it all.  meant. A pole was accurately measured in "order to find the exact center,  and then it was balanced across another pole, one end of which rested aipon  a limb of the lone oak. while the other  was sustained" by a, gentle 'horse. A  strong sack was attached to one end  of the balance pole, and a loop made  of a lariat was thrown over the'-other  end. ��� ���  t 1 '  The now thoroughly -amazed young  woman was requested to'seat herself  in that loop. ���,   t  Gold was poured -into the sack until  an.exact equipoise had bee.n established  between the gold and the body of the  girl.  "Not another grain." exclaimed the  bandit with a grandiloquent air. "I  said she was worth her weiglit in gold,  and the amount has been attained. Not  another cent The word of Cortinas is  his bond. Let us separate. " With all  my heart I wish you well. Remember  mo kindly to your father, young man."  While the bandit was forming and  uttering these words bis confederates  were, packing the irold ancl mounting  their horses. Only a few moments  passed before they were galloping  away, leaving thoir released captives  so utterly bewildered with joy that  they could hardly unci language to express their feelings.  "The enormous sum of gold rested  upon my mind like some hideous nightmare," she says.

Twice she slipped and fell and  cut her hands.     -Under   the   porous,  piled-up  rock,   rabbits  and., owls'.and  qr.ail were hidden; there were snakes,  too,  and lizards.   At   firat   siie    -was  frightened when they scurried by -her,  but soon, with h^r head ringing and  her eyes dazed with congested   blood  and her mouth open and as dry as flour,  sh* did not even notice them. *  _ She reached tlie end Of the huge rock  river at last, and found the ambulance  waiting.
