THE POINT OF HONOUR

of Santaguador, whose box was opposite his own. A few days later he met Pepe Alvarez at his club in the Sierpes and had a chat with him. To his surprise he found him a very pleasant young fellow. He was full of his exploits in Cuba and he related them with humour.
" The six weeks about Easter and the great Fair are the gayest in Seville, and the world meets to exchange gossip and laughter, at one festivity after another. Pepe Alvarez with his good nature and high spirits was in great request and the Agurias met him constantly. Don Pedro saw that he amused Soledad. She was more vivacious when he was there, and her laughter, which he had so seldom heard, was a delight to him. Like other members of the aristocracy he took a booth for the Fair where they danced, supped and drank champagne till dawn. Pepe Alvarez was always the life and soul of the parties.
" One night Don Pedro was dancing with the Duchess of Santaguador and they passed Soledad with Pepe Alvarez.
" `Soledad is looking very beautiful this evening,' she remarked.
" 'And happy,' he replied.
" 'Is it true that once she was engaged to be married to Pepe Alvarez?'
" `Of course not.'
" But the question startled him. He had known that Soledad and Pepe had known one another when they were children, but it had never crossed his mind that there could have been anything between them. The Count of Acaba, though a rogue, was a gentleman by birth, and it was inconceivable that he could have thought of marrying his daughter to the son of a provincial attorney. When they got home Don Pedro told his wife what the duchess had said and what he had replied.
" 'But I was engaged to Pepe,' she said.
" 'Why did you never tell me?'
" `It was finished and done with. He was in Cuba. I never expected to see him again.'
" 'There must be people who know you were engaged to him.'
