Before Home bad become the splen

days the carnival was a great event
Among the gnla performances were
races which took place on a street, or.
rather, nt that time a road, leading
from the foot of the Capltollne hill to
one of the gates (the Popolo) of the
city. That race course is now the
principal street in Rome and retains
its former name the Corso. During
the carnival, when the races were tak
ing rlace, the elite of Itomo lined the
Corso on seats erected for the occasion.
At one of these celebrations n young
girl, Clotilde Cusani, with her parents,
sat waiting to wlluess the races. When

HELD BEB HANDS T7I' FOR THE KINO TO
the Ivorses eamo galloping past, one of
the riders, possessing a superb figure
and sitting his horse like a centaur,
caufcot the eye of this maiden.
Ste was the daughter of a wine
grower whose vineyard was on the
western slope of the Alban hills. Still
ver youug, Bhe had rarely visited
Rome and had seen few young men
except those who cultivated the grapes
and worked iu the wine presses. The
warm Italian sun had shone down upon
her for eighteen years, ripening her
cheeks as well as her father's grapes.
TIiuji she grew up under soft skies, a
thing of beauty.
Tla sight of this handsome, well
formed man, his countenance lighted
wtfh the enthusiasm excited by the
race, was the first awakening in her
of an emotion akin to love. She had
rend the mythology of her ancestors,
and it seemed to her that the beautiful
god Apollo had come back from an
tiquity to show the followers of the
new religion that he was not yet ex
tinct. Admiratiou for him was not confined
t her. All were delighted with the
r'der whom no one present knew. He
von the race and rode back slowly
over the course amid the acclamations
of the spectators, and as he bowed
right and left they were reminded of
the progress of a general who,' some
twenty centuries before, having been
honored with a triumph passed up the
Via Sacra on the other side of the
There was throwing of confetti upon
the crowd passing below, laughing and
Joking, the amusements being kept up
till midnight, when the throng sep
arated and went to their homes to
begin the next inorniug the Lenten
A few days later when Clotilde
Cusani was walking in her father's
vineyard on the Alban hills several
young men came galloping along a
rood on the other side of the wall
that inclosed the farm, and the girl
recognized In advance of the others
the rider In tho races a short time be
fore. Now, Clotilde was a very beautiful
girl, so beautiful that the horseman
reined iu his horse to have a look at
her. Then, for an excuse to prolong
the meeting, he asked her where ho
might procure a drluk of water. She
replied iu a musical voice that a pure
stream ran in the vineyard that had
once poured through the aqueducts
that hud supplied water to ancient
Rome. If bo would dismount and
come over the wall she would show
hi in where be could get a drink. He
dismounted and, one of the party tak
ing charge of his horse, he vaulted the
"Shall wo remain hero, your maj
esty?" asked one of the attendants.
The man addressed frowned. "Be
more careful how you address me," he
said. "Yes, remain here."
Clotilde led "his majesty" down a
declivity through the vines to the
"But there is no cup," he Bald.
"I can only offer your majesty the
cup that I often use myself."
With that the girl, putting her hauda
together, formed a cup, took up some
of the water in it end held her bands
op for the king to drink. He did so
end asked for more. She gave It, and
still his thirst was uuquencbed. lie
kept calling for more till the girl, see
ing that her white hands, the fingers
tipped with vermilion, was attracting
him, blushed and clasped them behind
"Thanks." said the king. "I am still
thirsty, but I will trouble you no more.
Is there anything 1 can do to show
my appreciation for your kindness?"
"Yes, your majesty. Tell me why
you, a soverlRn. rode in the races on
the Corso during the carnival?"
"I will tell you, relying on you to
keep my secret 1 am traveling incog
nito that I may indulge my tastes. I
m desperately foud of horses and
would rather ride a race than partake
of a banquet. I nm not known here,
and I shall rciy upon you, who are the
only person in Italy except a few at
tendants who know thnt I am a kin;.'.
He who addressed mo as 'your maj
esty' forgot himself."
The king, who hud Just come of age,
full of life and spirits, fond of athletic
sports, annoyed by tho rouUno of a
court, bad with a couple of intimate
associates and a 6lngle serving man
come to Italy for the carnival and en
tered for one of tho races. In those
days there was not tho travel there Is
today, and ho did not incur the same
risk of being recognized by ono of his
subjects. He rcmuined in Rome for
some time, and mnuy were his rides
across the Campagna to the villa of
Senore Cusani. Clotilde kept the king's
secret and her father supposed at first
that his guest had taken a fancy to
his 'wine rather than his daughter. But
when he discovered the cause of these
frequent visits he told Clotilde that
she niunt dismiss the stranger, who
gave no satisfactory account of him
self, since he (her father) was nego
tiating a marriage for her with the
son of a neighboring wine grower with
a view to uniting the two vineyards.
After Kincf Otho's departure mes
sages cauio from time to time for Clo
tilde. No one but herself knew that she
wns in correspondence with a sovereign.
But when one day an envoy came
openly from King Otho, bearing a
huge parchment creating Clotilde a
countess, the people of Rome and Its
environs were nstoulshed. The nobil
ity especially were agog, wondering
why n little country girl was so hon
ored. But they did not learn that
King Otho had visited them and had
ridden before them at a breakneck
speed down the Corso. CloUldo alone
knew that, nud she would not tell.
But the sensation had not died out
before along came another envoy with
another parchment bigger than the
first creating Clotilde a duchess. Then
the people begun to open their eyes In
earnest. Had they known of King
Otho's visit and that be had met and
courted the recipient of these honors
they might have surmised that they
were preparatory for something im
portant. The last elevation included
an estate, and Clotilde removed to it
with her parents, who In the mean
time had brokeu off negotiations for
her union with a wine grower's son.
There was no scandal connected
with the bestowal of these favors,
firstly, because of Clotilde's uative
purity, and, secondly, because the
donor never appeared and was not
known to have ever seen her on whom
he bestowed tbem. They came so
thick and so fast that the scandal
mongers were puzzled. A watch was
set upon the countess, but before the
watchers had time to learn the secret
of her elevation she had been made a
duchess, and before any return could
be discovered to have been made for
the ducal coronet a deputation of no
bles arrived from King Otho propos
ing to make the duchess his queen.
And so the reason for these star
tling elevations was out, but not their
cause. No one knew that In addition
to the cup won by a stranger in a
race on the Corso he had won a cup
formed by the two hands of a young
Italian gltd, or, rather, that by making
a cup with her bands the girl had won
a queenly crown.
Then it was announced that the roy
al groom was coming to claim his
bride. Both were devout Catholics, and
it was arranged that the marriage
should take place in St. Peter's. For
weeks before the nuptials workmen
were employed decorating the interior,
and all Rome was preparing for the
When King Otho came to the city he
refrained from appearing in public
till the celebration of the marriage.
The royal procession entered the
church at a rear door and few saw the
king's face, since he went directly to
the altar. But after the ceremony,
when he turned and walked with his
bride down through the center of the
church, many of those who crowded
either side looked at one another and
exclaimed breathlessly: ..
"Tho rn e rider of the carnival r'
The bridal couple drove away from
the church, followed by tho acclama
tions of the people, here and there,
now and npaln, a voice rising above
the tumult: "Tho race rider!" "A roy
al Jockey!" "Tie won a prize!" and
other like shouts. As the cavalcade
crossed the Tiber tho news that the
king had visited Rome before, had won
a prize in the Corso and his bride on
the Alban hills grew like au expend
ed wave circlet till every one knew.
But of all the most wondering were
the nobles. Many a matron with mar
riageable daughter was wrathful that
she had not known that this impression
able young king was in their midst In
cog. Many a girl among the hereditary
princesses that alwund In Italy grieved
that she had missed a chance to be
come a queen.
They were all too late. The king
took the vineyard lassie away with
him, followed by the lamentations ot
every marriageable woman in Rome
who might huve hoped to win a crown
had she known of the king's presence.
