DESCRIIPTIO OF A SPANISH B ULL
FiG mlT.
A Scene of Slaughter at Madrid--The
achievoments of the Matadors--Do
scription of a very Questionable
Pastimo.
Corre ))omiuenc of the tiraphie.
MAnRID, Feb. 26.-I do not doubt
tha'. American roadors would be in,
te v ated in a description of a Span
is ' bull-fight, every detail of which
wns roted in pencil at the time of
occurrence. The following particu
1 rs tro traniscribed from my diary
Actor breakfasting at the Fonda
Peninsular I besought mine host to
tell me the pleasaritest way of
spending tho day. His dark-bro wn
face manifested at oneo the pleasure
it afforded him to riuggost the bull
fight, while lie gave me directions
regarding the purchase of a ticket
and the place of the contest. Some
hours later I strolled up the Callo
Allcala until a ticket ofico was
reached, where seats for the bull.
fight were advertised.
I purchased one marked "sombraL"
(shade) those exposed to the glare
of the sun being cheaper, but less
desirable. Passing through the
city, a large open place was reached,
at the opposite extremity of which
stood a circular amphitheatro of
brick, two stories in height. ''he
roads leading thither were lined
with little booths, at which were
sold the wine of Val do Penas amnd
other beverages. Many elegant
equipages swept past, and for the
first time since my arrival in Spain
have I beheld a type of that femamle
loveliness for which Castile hits ever
been noted. The women of Madrid,
as a rule, are not pretty ; even the
liquid, lustrous eyes and luxuriant
masses of hair, arranged with con
sumumato skill, do not compensate
for the wretched, faded complexions
nn!a lj'MLj forms that one is contii
ally meeting. I soon arrived at the
building and gropod about the
daIrk corridors of the Mrst floor
seeking a passago leading to the
seats within. While thus occupied,
loud shouts were heard and clapping
of hands and stamping of feet. Eu
tering the gallery the arena as seen
was perhaps one hundred and fifty
feet in diameter, bounded by a high
barrier, which, in turn, was encom
passed by an annular alley ; behind
this rose tier after tier of seats up
to the covered galleries. The dens
in which the wild cattle are confined
up to the time of combat havo also at
port-cullis entrance to the ring
directly opposite these was a hand
some pavilion which I correctly
judged to be the royal box. For a
moment I experienced a very
strange sensation-something inw
describable,-what it wars I scarcely
know. A sudden shoek ; titter as
tonishmnen t, which maiy be0 likened
to the effect produced upon01 a nerv
ous midnight scanner of one of
Wilkie Collins' thrilling "situa
tions." Tihe arena of ancient Rome
seemed actually before me-tang1led
ideas of Olympian gamnes---of the
gladiators and martyrs flitted
through mny brain. Then my eyes
werto riveted upon two disabled
horses ini the ring, panting in death
throes !-the fight had begun.
From their flanks gory entrails hung,
and as the purplish intestines ooso
out, forming a bloody ball, I heatr
laughter on all sides. There, is a
young girl behind me. How cain
she endure this ? I look around
and see her apparenitly unmoved
not at all agitated ; on the contrary
rather disposed to ennui, atnd
bored.
Now a third blindfolded steed
with rider approaches the bull.
The horseman poises his lance, and1(
the brute charges at him. Now is
the chance for dexterity ; now the
time to wheel about saving horse
and piercing bull simultaneously.
But no I the horse is held etoeadfast
ly awaiting the onslaught. As the
rider buries his lance in the bull,
the steed impaled upon tho horns of
his adversary is lifted into the air,
while the ground turns crimson with
his blood. The rider falls beneath
the dying horse, and the bull, mad..
dened by the lance-thrust, prepares
to charge again. But at this
juncture a pack of gaudily-.dressed
auxiliaries hastoen to th~e sceno with
red banners which direet'his atten
tion from the picador just thrown.
This unbarmed rider gets another
mount while his rescuers take
refug~e from the bull behlid the
barrier.
Oeeionai~y one of the disablea
horses lifts his head from the
ground, stretching out his neck as
though stilled with blood. In the
intervals of fighting, the bull vainly
attempts to leap over the auditori
um ; baflod in which he returns to
his victims and gores the steeds till
they are dyed scarlet, and dcafening
appl:iuse follows. C.mnes are rapped
hanldkorchiefs waved anid the mob
whistles like the winter winds on the
prairies, and now the senorita bo
hind inc joyously surveys the seenos
with her glass
The excitement abates when
Taurus leaves the horses and im
potuiously rends to pieces a saddle
which a. frightened groom had
dropped in his flight noross the
arena. At this lull in butchery, tho
band in attendance performs a few
bars of a popular air. Fatigued by
the terrible shocks which lie has
sustained, the bull now pauses, evi
dently elb:Lrrassed.
Plainly the noise and plaudits bo'
wildercd him. But, for meditation,
ho has but little Limo Another of
his human tormentors, silk-stocking
ed and elegantly wigged, dances
lightly into the cirle, balancing him
self alternatly on either foot, and
holding above him in each hand
a long dart. Tantalizingly he nears
his bovine adversary, who at length
plunges at him. .But the charge is
evaded, and the bull has boon deoply
lanced in both shoulders. This
worthy now retires, leaving the
hull bleeding profusely trembling
with 1 Illed rage, glaring at the
ground and the w hist.ling begins
ag;in, and the applaIso redoubles
as the mat.ilor is seen advancing.
In one hand is at red standard ; tho
other gra.Lsis a sword. '1'lho bull,
goailel t:o fury, leaps at him. By a
skilful filng of the Il:g to one side
and at countter movement of his own
body, the matador slccoods in
pluging the sword far into the
hull's shoulder. Again and again
this demllonliae sconoC recurs, till 'id4
a savage clamor the bull totters, es
says vainly to stand and sinks ex
hausted on the 011. of his triumphs.
Every throat in all this multitudo
pours forth its cry of joy. The vast
throng bursts into a prolonged peal
of applause. And now- the matador
with face flushed with victory turns
proudly to the people and makes
his salutation. As he revolves
around the ring addressing the ons
tire assembhl:igo and low yet confi.,
deutly to all, a perfect hailstorm of
cigars meets him at each turn.
These grateful tributes of a delight,
ed autldience iare collected by his
atten(lants.
Everybody hurls his hat reckloss
ly at the niat:alor, hero of the day I
This divinity hallows them with his
touch and throws them back to their
owners. Whether the proper tiles
were in every instanco restored to
the rightful owners I could not
discover. The subsequent fightts
differed from the above only in the
occasional introduction of detoit
ing ball,or bombs, which were thrust
into the flesh of bulls which mani
fested a lack of p)luck. The1 exI)los
ions were attended with great ap
plause and fluttering of handkor
chiefs. On tihe death of each bull,
four mnules, guily caparisoned, are
driven into the arona dragging a
stretcher. To this the bull and the
horses are miade fast, and to the
sound1( of gay music are hurried
poell-moll into an outer court, leaving
loroad lines of blood to mark their
co)urso.
The bulls for these fights are
found on the vast plins between
(Jordova and Seville. Those early
indicating a savago3 disposition are
isolated, andl undergo a longt course
of systematic torture before acqulire
ing the dlesidora~tum) of fury. Dis,
gusted and sickened at the revolting
spectacle I had just witnessed, I
arose and left the b~uildling, travers
ing thle square before the tumnultu
ous applauso and bursting of bombs
had censed to thrill mfO with horror.
Some days later, at dusk, I was
strolling through thle narrow,
crowvded alleys of Seville, when the
thron g ahead of me separated, to
allowv a herdsman and his cattle to
pass. I lifted my eyes suddenly, to
behold a half-dozen bulls apparent%
ly rushing at me, The assoeiations
of the contest at Madrid were still
frezh in my mind. I felt an intense
horror, and leaped with all my fore
into a glazier's hard by, throwing
down several men as-I entered.- The
bulls passed on, and regaining my
composure slightly, I apologized for
my rudeness to the men who'. only
revenge was some pleasantry about
the English. 'With beating heart,-IK
stepped out upon the street where
my presence :caused groat amuse
ment among the by standers. whoIed~
witneseed my fllht.
