Manj years ago In Madrid there lived
a grandee, Don Aoderigo de Sandoval.
His bouse was on a little square, or
rather court. In the center of which waa
a fountain with a cup where an; one
might quench bis thirst. Don ltoderlgo
had married a girl very much younger
than himself and set her up on a pedes
tal as hla mother bad placed a crucifix
ea bar dressing table, to worship. Si
gnora de Sandoval while she at first
found It pleasant to be thus adored,
•specially since adoration brought with
it every comfort, soon found It tire-
gome. Her husband devoted but a brief
time to her every day, the rest being
given to affairs of state, he being one
« f the king's cabinet. The rest of the
time the young wife spent alone, and It
did not occur ts the husband that the
time would bang heavy on her hands
or that she would crave aoclety, espe
cially of the opposite sex. Did she not
have servants at her beck and call, the
finest apparel to wear, the most savory
dishes upon her table? What moro
could any woman need?
One Dlght when Don Roderlgo was re
turning from the palace where he had
been In conference with the king. Jnst
before entering the court In which be
lived he stopped short and fastened bis
eyes on a scene before him. A young
man stood st the fountsln bolding the
cu;> In his hand and looking up at the
balcony projecting from the second
floor of Don Roderlgo'« bouse. Just
within s window opening on to the bal

JL few weeks after the episode that
had such a marked effect upon Ro-
derlgo he was coming horns late at
night when he saw a man drinking at
the fountain. Advlnclng, he knocked
the cup from the stranger's hand. The
man turned, hot at the Insult and see
ing one worthy of hla steel drew his
rapier and attacked the lnsulter. San
doval drew and defended himself, cast
ing from time to time an eye on hla
wife's window. All was dark there,
and In time be called a halt In the
fight apologized for the Insult, refilled
the cup and offered It to the stranger.
The latter, puzzled, drank and went
After that on numerous occasions—
always at the dead of night—some
stranger stopping to quench his thirst
at the fountain would report In the
morning that the cup had been knocked
from his hand and. sometimes after a
fight, the lnsulter had apologized and
proffered a full cup. The police seemed
singularly apathetic about the matter,
not even taking pains to watch the
fountain. Thus It became the belief
that the person who gave these Insults
was high In favor of the government.
One night a man entered the square
and, seeing another at the fountain,
withdrew under the shadow of a flight
of steps While the man at the foun
tain was drinking a third figure ap
proached and knocked the cap out
of the drinker's band.
“What means this Insult?" asked the
At that moment a glimmer of white

His rapier flashed, but before the

man shot from a shadow and stood,
