THE POINT OF HONOUR

have to go to Cordova. I find that my attorney has been robbing me. I know that all attorneys are thieves, but I stupidly thought this one was honest.'
" He seemed to speak quite lightly, and it was as lightly that Pepe Alvarez put in his word.
" 'I think you exaggerate, Pedrito. Don't forget that my father is an attorney and he at least is honest.'
" 'I don't believe it for a minute,' laughed Don Pedro. `I have no doubt that your father is as big a thief as any:
" The insult was so unexpected and so unprovoked that for a moment Pepe Alvarez was staggered. The others were startled into sudden seriousness.
" 'What do you mean, Pedrito?'
" 'Exactly what I say.'
" 'It's a lie and you know it's a lie. You must withdraw that at once.'
" Don Pedro laughed.
" `Of course I shall not withdraw. Your father is a thief and a rascal.'
" Pepe did the only thing he could do. He sprang from his chair and with his open hand hit Don Pedro in the face. The outcome was inevitable. Next day the two men met on the frontier of Portugal. Pepe Alvarez, the attorney's son, died like a gentleman with a bullet in his heart."
The Spaniard ended his story on such a casual note that for the first moment I hardly took it in. But when I did I was profoundly shocked.
" Barbarous," I said. "It was just cold-blooded murder." My host got up.
" You're talking nonsense, my young friend. Don Pedro did the only thing he could do in the circumstances."
I left Seville next day, and from then till now have never been able to discover the name of the man who told me this strange story. I have often wondered whether the lady I saw, the lady with the pale face and the lock of white hair, was the unhappy Soledad.
