Ramona was the adopted daughter of the Senora Moreno, proud and haughty widow— a religious fanatic who ruled her vast rancho in feudal grandeur. From girlhood, she loved the Senora’s son, Felipe, and he in turn loved Ramona. The story begins at sheep-shearing time on the Moreno rancho. A band of In¬ dians, headed by the handsome and youthful Alessandro, are engaged for the shearing, and during this annual harvest of wool, the young chieftain and Ramona fall in love. All of her rich heritage of Indian blood rises into the ascendency, and the girl determines to marry Ales¬ sandro. Senora Moreno resorts to every artifice of her cunning nature to frus¬ trate the marriage. By wedding an In¬ dian, Ramona would be disgraced, argued the Senora. Felipe, when he learns that Romana and Alessandro are in love, sac¬ rifices his own devotion for the girl, defies his obdurate mother and aids ,n thwarting her scheme to place Ramona in a convent. With his guitar he in¬ trigues the senora in the patio while Ramona escapes from the hacienda and elopes with Alessandro.

Connect the little stars and find out RA-13 {Mat, 10c; Cut, 50c) Ramona goes off with Alessandro who eturns to his own people with his Indi- in bride. Many hardships and tragedies oliow the marriage, but they serve only o cement their love in stronger union, rhey find happiness in the birth of a baby : irl and life’s outlook seems happy indeed trhen a gang of brutal outlaws raid their tillage and masscre the inhabitants. Ra- nona and Alessandro, with their child, .scape after she sets fire to their home o keep it from falling into the hands ot he maurauders. They find refuge in a :abin on a mountain peak. Then comes he death of little Ramona, which upsets he mind of Alessandro and all but ireaks the heart of Ramona. Alessandro s shot down, slain before her eyes. Ka- nona, in the depths of despair, loses her nemory and becomes a wandering out- :ast among the Indians of the San Jacin- Meanwhile, the old Senora dies. Felipe, left alone, and with a smouldering love for Ramona, seeks everywhere for the girl and Alessandro. His ambition is to find and bring them back to the old hacienda where they may live in peace and happiness. He searches the mis¬ sions, the gold fields, the cantinas and the Indian villages—all in vain. Finally, Felipe finds Ramona in an adobe Indian hut, where for ten days she has lain un- conscious after the death of Alessandro. He brings her back to the old hacienda. The servants rush out to greet her. But Ramona does not remember them. In¬ stead she shrinks in fear, clinging to the arm of Felipe, a pathetic figure in her tragic unhappiness. Felipe tries to restore Ramona s shat¬ tered memory. He takes her to all the loved spots she knew as a girl. In vain he seeks a rfestorative. Finally he hits upon a great idea! He has Ramonas maid dress her in a beautiful Spanish costume which she wore in her youth. And then in the patio he plays his guitar and sings to her an old love song as he sang to her years ago. Slowly the strains seep into Ramona’s sleeping brain. She begins to dance, mechanically as a doll at first. Then as the strains of the music come more vividly back to her mind, she dances with more animation, finally entering into the spirit of the dance with all the wild abandon of her youth. The old servants are overjoyed and Felipe is swept into a great happiness. At last, recognizing him and all the servants, Ramona exclaims, “It is just as though I had never been away.” Sheep-shearing time comes again at the old hacienda. Ramona and Felipe, in a spirit of youthful sport, help drive home the sheep for the shearing. They linger on the hillside to pluck wild flowers. The sparkle of health has come again to Ramona’s dark, mysterious eyes. Felipe at last finds courage to speak of his love. It is then that the white blood in Ramona submerges the Indian and she gives her heart to Felipe, her white blood answering his love in a spiritual union of perfect understanding.
