It rained it rains it will rain!. I
could conjugate this verb in all its
moods and tenses in English
Spanish French a fid Italian and
then sigh for more fangnages in
which to give weut to. -the joy I
feel unseeing the kindly clouds
dropping their geutle dew upon
the parched fields that need the
refreshing showers to bring forth
the seeds sown therein.' Yes kind
sir 'tig. true tho' ' conveyed in
hyperbolical language that yester-
day we were gladdened with rain.
Earl' yesterday morning to the
rolling din of thunder it came!
jNot in torrents to run off infft the
river and esteros but in gentle
showers that soak into the ground
and keep it moist a long time.
Nearly all day long did we nave
these rains and mucli did. we re-
joice. I have one fault to find and that
is tnrautula. Frequently before
and after a rain these big groni.d
spiders take a walk abroad. If
there is anything I detest it is a
spider. Often at night (for these
insects fire mostly nocturnal in
their habits) have I chanced to
glance toward the door and see an
enormous spider slowly advancing.
I jump for my stick kept specially
I for such intruders and make one
. or two wild passes at the beast. In-
variably do I miss and just as
invariably does the "trant" come
galloping toward me for he can
run fast -and jnmp high too. With
a wild? cry I retreat raining blow
upon the spots wheie the "trant"

deal of robbery .is being done not
only of animals but from people.
A Mexican peddler is reported to
have been robbed and murdered
and the suicide of that shepherd-
boy would seem to be a murder
too. It is said that he refused to
let some men take sheep he was
guarding and the' hung him. I
tell the tale but do not vouch for
it. Still Don Celedonio ought to
have an eye'for that section.

Mr. Calix.to Yalle one of our best
all-round yonug merchauts receiv-
ed an anonywjrms letter warning
him of an attempt to burglarize his
store. Getting the aid of our ever-
popular sheriff the two ensconced
themselves inside the store arm-
ed and waited. Quite early in the
night about 9 or 10 o'clock three
men entered the lot at the back of
the store. While two of the men
kept watch -One attacked the rear
door with an axe. After three or
four blows the door came open
and-then the battle opened.- The
burglar flrev his pistol refused to
surrender and -fled firing and be
ing fired upon .as he ran. Calixto
had a shot gun and managed to
ge his man on thefly and brought
him to the ground. He turned out
