JUDGE OF SEVILLE;
A LEGEND of PETER the CRUEL
KING OF CASTILE.
TRANSLATED FROM ALEXANDER DUMAS,
BY ALFRED GAUDELET.
'Towards llie end of the year 1358, on a
cold evening in September, one of those storms
of which Ihe inhabitants ofaSoulhern country
alona could hove any idea, visited Seville and
. The heavens seemed like one entire sheet
of flamej the thunder rolled frightfully, while
torrents of rain fell like lava from an overturn
ed volcano. Now and then a flash of light
ning would detach itself from this vast crater,
encircling like a fiery seipent some distant fir
tree; again in a twinkling, everything would
be totally obscure, rendering the darkneess
more intense than before. It was at this
time, hich seemed to threaten another deluge,
that two huntsmen, separated from their com
panions, were leading by the bridle their hor
ses, which were no longer able to carry them
through a kind of stony path, which served as
ii bed for one of (he many torrents which fall
from the mountains of Sierre Norermi into the
valley, atthe bottom of which flows theGuad
slnuiver. ' Occasionally thesa trnve'ets, who walked
In perfeclsilence, would stop to listen, hoping
they might hear some sound beside that of
the rolling thunder; but all seemed Id be lis
tening i'i death-like stillness to the great
voice speaking from Heaven. In n moment,
while they were stopping to rest themse ves,
the younger of the two, who was a fine-loo's-ine
man about twenty-two years old, with
lone liiilit hair and fair skin, like the men of
the North, placed to his lips a horn of ivory
an J olew several sou mis so clear ni prolong
ed that in the midst of this fearful storm it
must have appeared to those who heard it,
like a call from Ihe angel on the judgment
day. It was the third or fourth time that the
misguided hunter hail resorted 10 this method,
without anv result, but tins time he was
more successful, for in in an instant the sound
of a mountaineer's horn struck his ear. but
feeble and distant, that both 'bought it might
l.e their own echo. He blew a second time
with new strength, accumulated by hope, and
to his rapturous delight, was responded to
notsto distinct, that he knew well the direc
tion from which they came.
Then the young man with the light hair
threw the bridle uf his horse into the hnndsof
liis companion, ascended one of the nearest
hilli, and lookiiif; into the valley, which was
' now and then illuminated by the lightning,
, be perceived about two miles distnnl a laive
fire burning tpon a rock. For a moment they
doubttd whether it bad been lighted by God
or man but, after blowing the horn a third
.time, tho.ounds which answered them came
an directly from tins spot where the fire wai
seen, thrt they no longer hesitated to descend
After an hour's nmrol , not, however, with
out renewing their call, which each lime
brought quicker responses, the huntsmen nr-
rived at the loot of the mountain, nud saw
plainly the fire in front of a small house which
appeared to be a farm, but between them and
this house rolled the tumultuous and threat,
'. VMay San Jago protect rs," exclaimed
the younger of Ihe two huntsmen at tins
sight "I sincerely believe that we have
t.iken all this troublesnnie trip (or nothing,
, mid that the only chance left lor us, now,

"And why, I pray you, my lord?" inquir

"Well, Juan Pasquale," replied the king.
"I wish I bad many servants like you, for you
are a brave fellow."
Juan Pasanale bowed as a man who re
ceived a compliment which he feels conscious
of deserving, and pointing to the door of his
cabin, invited the travelers io go in. nicy
found the table already spread, ond a sparkling
fire on the heirth, which proved that Juan
Pasquale had thought of the two most impor
tant things in such cases, cold nil J hunger.
"Should it be agreeable to you, my lords,"
so id Juan Pasquale, "I can lend you some
clothes, which, although very course, will do
better than those you nave on now, which win

"Agreeable, by heaven ! sucn a proposal is
always ogreeable to a poor hunter wet to the
bonss. Come quick; bring on the cluthes my
worthy host, for I confess that I shall be glad
to say two words to this attrocltvo supper."

"The Tact is," replied Ferrand, "tliat our
host might have been mora respectful, but no!
"It is exactly his cordiality which pleases
me. I have often derived much benefit frm
advice given to tin? strnnsrer, but never from
praises bestowed upon the king. I must make
this brave fellow converse, Ferrand,"
"It will not be a difficult metier, sire ; ond
I think von can rely, beforehand, upon Ihe
sincerity of what he will tell yon. At any
ra', your highness can hear nothing but what
will b flatterine."
"Amen," said Don Pedro, and as Ihey bad
finished their toilet, they returned lo the room

she had a gri-nt desire to know the cause

toconceal it from her, she soon found thnt her
husband, by Ihe king's order, was instantly

poor Jucnn was terrified, and not withstanding
ihe repeated nssurnncesof the messeneer thai

not banish her fears. ' ' '
