THE POINT OF HONOUR

ent a marksman that everyone had laughed at him. The young artilleryman had borne the chaff with good humour. Cannon were his weapon, he said.
" `What are you going to do?' Soledad asked.
" `You know that there is only one thing I can do.'
" She understood. But she tried to treat what he said as a pleasantry.
" 'You're childish. We're not living any more in the sixteenth century.'
" 'I know. That is why I am talking to you now. If I have to challenge Pepe I shall kill him. I don't want to do that. If he will resign his commission and leave Spain I will do nothing."

" 'I love him too much to ask him to run away like a coward. How could he face life without honour?'

" She did not answer, but in her eyes he saw the fierce hatred she bore him. That look stabbed his heart, for he loved her, he loved her as passionately as ever.

" 'When are you going to give us our revenge, Pedrito?' asked another.
" 'I'm afraid you'll have to wait for that,' he answered. `I
