X d THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 18, 188. IN THE TUNNEL A Story of Love and Jealousy Thai Euds Happily. Imbedded in a deep Italian valley' lay tho Tillage of Santa Chiara. Mountains surrounded it on all sides except on the north, where the valley narrowed into a gorge with steep pre cipitous sides, forming a natural roadway out into the open country. So the valley and village were in a cul-dc-sac, and to this reason the peasants attributed a great deal of their poverty. In remote, far-away times a narrow road had been made over the mountains toward, the south, and the rnoro enterprising of the vil lagers drove their mules once or twice a year over this pass a day and a half journey to the big town of Monte Caetauo, to sell the fruits of their industry; but the journey took time and money, and both were too valuable to be spent on the road very often. But with the energy and enterprise of the 19th century came a change. There was muck talk of the iuconv...
