Pedro s Example It was a dark stormy day All the elements seemed to be rorned together to depress the already low sprnts of a small band of peons who were stolrdly ploddrng down the road toward the abobe mrssron Therr heads were bowed therr feet slow As they entered the church Rodrrgo the leader dropped a corn rn a box and lrghted a candle Srlently they knelt and prayed all wrth the same thought and hope that Pedro the small and brave one mrght be saved It had been just two weeks srnce Pedro had been run down by Iuan the Bandrt of the Red Cloak And for these two long weeks the boy had been rn the Hosprtal of the Whrte Flower frghtrng valrantly for hrs lrfe The bandrt Iuan had terrorrzed the whole valley for several months and no one had had the courage to stop hrm Every mornmg the poor peons had feared to irnd a house ransacked or a herd of sheep mrssrng Iuan had but two known characterrstrcs He always rode a snow whrte steed and wore a scarlet cloak As was the case wrth most bandrts he always struck at nrght or rn the early dawn He once had been seen ndmg through a near bv forest rn the twllrght but no one had ever dared follow hrm Don Carlos the Spanrsh land owner for whom the peons worked had offered a hrgh reward for the capture of Iuan One nrght when the moon was almost full the red cloaked bandrt had attacked Rodrrgos small flock Pedro Rodrrgos only son had been watchrng the sheep as unusual when Iuan had charged from the forest In a valrant attempt to save the sheep Pedro had thrown hrs own frarl body between the flock and the onrushrng bandrt In the mornmg when the peons had come to the pasture to look for hrm they had found the boy trampled down and the sheep gone Only hrs farthful lrttle dog was there keeprng watch over hrs prostrate form Thrs accrdent had forced the mens decrsron for all of them dearly loved courageous Pedro All that they had really lacked before was the rncentrve to capture Iuan As soon as they had taken the boy to the hosprtal they agreed upon a plan They would all work together to rrd the valley of Iuan forever The perfect nrght for the plot had soon appeared Three of the smaller flocks of sheep had been moved rnto the upper meadow and as the bandrt had not attacked for some trme he was expected that mght The men had all mounted therr swrftest horses and had rrdden to the upper meadow The moon was just commg over the nerghbonng Srerra Madre mountams as they arrrved and hrd themselves rn the underbrush surround mg the pasture The sheep had been grazrng peacefully but the scene was tense Suddenly a whrte horse had galloped through the thrcket and had begun to herd the now frrghtened sheep together The rrder was the surprrsed bandrt He had reached for hrs guns but a lasso had settled over hrs shoulders and held hrm trghtly The rrde home had been a srlent one Each had been thrnkrng not only of the successful capture but also of lrttle Pedro rn the hosprtal The peons had turned the defeated Bandit of the Red Cloak over to Don Carlos who had been surprrsed but thankful that the bandrt had been frnally apprehended The reward had been forgotten for the moment as the trred peons returned to therr homes Now all these humble peopl were prayrng for lrttle Pedro The doctor had told them that the boy had a frghtmg chance and that rf all went well he would recover As the peons solemnly frled out of the small mrssron each gave a last srlent prayer for the courageous boy When they were all outsrde the church agarn they headed toward the Hosprtal of the Whrte Flower to vrsrt Pedro As they entered hrs strll room the doctors came toward them wrth happy smrles upon therr faces Suddenly the tensron was broken as all present realrzed that lrttle Pedro was gorng to be all nght Rodrigo went to hrs sons bedsrde and relorced to see a clear unfevered brow for the first time srnce the accrdent They left the room quretly so as not to drsturb the peaceful sleep of Pedro When the happy group returned to the ranch Don Carlos was wartrng for them He announced to the parents that therr reward was to be the ownerslup of the land whrch they had for so many years He added that the beautrful whrte steed of the captured bandrt was to be grven to Pedro when he had fully recovered The peons rarsed therr yoyful vorces wrth one accord They greatly apprecrated therr freedom but they vowed they would serve both therr benefactor and therr God untrl the end of therr lrves Kathy Davrs 52 Never Free' Should gamblrng be legalrzed9 Thats all I hear The pros and cons lust frll my earl lm srttrng quretly studyrng now My eyes on the page my hands on my brow Tranqurllrty settles rts quret I vow Then the uproar descends Quret" Not nowl I lre on my prllow and pull up the sheet I cover my head and dreams oer me sweep Yet where ever I turn what ever I dream The gamblers roulettes and wheels do fleet Holly Edwards 53 . . . wearing a scarlet cloak.
