STOKY OF THE BULL KING.
I was curly in my Beat, fur 1 like,
above all tliiiiRS, tist the umtlcy crowd
of sunburned Spaniards come trooping
to llicir national game.
I was Bin-prised at the crowd: there
u iiH nn great matador going to kill bulls

tell me why so many people are here to
day?" "You do not know! Sebastian will
kill the bull."
"St-hastinul I know no bull fighter of
"He has never killed a bull before. I
will tell you his story Sebastian is only
a muleteer Once a week he comes with
his burden of fruit But he is pour; the
mules are not his; he only works for an
other." tie paused for a moment, and
added: "You are a stranger?"
"Yes." I said. "I arrived yesterday."
"Then you do not know Juanita.
Every one falls in love with Juanita.
Sebastian prayed and liesought her to
marry him, but she is proud, and would
not look at the humble muleteer. But
aftera lime his handsome lace impressed
her: so she told him she would marry
him if he would kill a bull iu the ring at
today's fair. But. husht there she is.
standing near that column."
I turned anil gazed at one of the most
lovely creatures it has ever been my lot
to see. Her light golden hair was bound
up high upon her head, and surmounted
by a dark crimson rose, held in her man
tilla of black lace; her dress was open,
and showed a wonderfully chiseled
throat; her arms, too, were bare from
the ellmw, in their exquisite whiteness
and shape; her dress was of black lace.
But it was not the dress that struck one
so forcibly it was those great gray eyes
and dark lashes, the curved eyebrows,
the aquiline nose, the perfect lips.
She took her seat among the common
people, whom she entirely ignored, and
drew out a great fan of black lace, which
she opened and closed, leaning back with
a weary look in her half shuteyes.
It was time the bull fight commenced.
I gazed round the ring. Behind nnd
around me was the dusty crowd, among
which passed the sellers of water with
their shrill cry of "Agua, agua fresca,"
and the venders of biscuits and nuts.
Below, the arena, with its burning yel
low sand, a miniature desert. Suddenly
the band commenced to play; 1 turned
and saw that the administrator's box
was no longer empty. A small man in
a black coat and silk hat had taken his
seat tliere. One by one the spears of the
picadors were handed to him, nnd he
measured the points to see that, none
were beyond the prescribed length.
Clear above the music of the hand rang
out the notes of a bugle. A great fold
ing gate was thrown open and the pro
I'our of the matadors were profession
als; the fifth was Sebastian. Pale in his
scarlet and gold costume hut dignified
and graceful, he approached the admin
istrator's box, before which he bowed.
Then he came close to where I was sitting
and bowed to Juanita. His face was
deadly pale, but never in my life have I
seen a more determined look. He was
very handsome handsomer almost than
Juanita herself, who acknowledged his
bow with a scarcely pprcepliblo sign of
recognition over the top of her black lace
A gate is opened in the arena. With
a roar, and a shout from ttio people, the
bull rushes from his darkened cell into
the ring. lie looks round him; for a
moment he paws the ground, then, led
011 by the moving cloak of one of the
matadors, hecharges but his horns touch
nothing more solid than the crimson
cloak. For a moment "toro" stands as
if stupelied, then espies a larger and
safer bait, and with a fearful rush lifts
horse and picador into the air, hurling
them to the ground in a heap. The
matadors are quick, however, and they
call off the bull by waving their cloaks,
and keep his attention fixed on them
selves. He is a good bull. The people
are delighted. "Bravo, toro!" they cry.
Another horse falls dead, the third ie
wounded and led out. the fourth killed:
but the Spaniards aro not satisfied in
their love of blood. "Mas caballosl mas
caballos!" Then the bu;:le sounds.
Two of the matadors step to the aide
of the arena, leaving their cloaks and
taking in each hand a bandcrillo. Four
times docs the bull receive the sharp
forked points, and four times does he
miss his man.
Again the buglo blows. Sebastian
steps forward, takes t' o sword and the
Hag and marches lo the administrator's
box, where he swear In kill the bull.
There is a deal ning cheer as he
throws his hat among the people, to be
held till he returns victorious or dead.
I turn instinctively toward Juanita;
she was leaning buck in her seat, slowly
fanning herself, her half closed eyes
scarcely conveying any expression of in
terest. Sebastian faces the bull, the flag in his
left hand, his eyes on the beast's. His
band is as steady as a rock.
The bull charges: I drew a quick
breath; Sebastian gracefully, with the
ease of a practiced bull tighter, escaped
the horns. A cheer rings out from ths

Sebastian approached the golieriiadol
and bowed, lie is paler than ever, but
a smile lights up his lips. Then, sword
in hand, he turned,' approached and
faced Juanita. Her expression is the
same as ever. Tliere is no smile of en

the bouquet at her breast and throws it

The diamond signet of the ill fated

by the well known French traveler T
