Jerry had even shown a disposition to shirk keeping her promise anent the new way of doing Teresita's hair. She said that she didn't think she'd go to the fiesta, after all which was like calmly telling a priest that one does not, after all, feel as if heaven is worth striving for. Teresita failed to see how the wistfulness was quite submerging the twinkle in Mrs.

It was my opinion then, and still is, that a fiesta at Pamplona is among the most vapid things in the world. There was a mixture of incomprehension and culture in Pamplona, that was truly ridiculous. The people would devote several days to going to bull fights, and then turn about, when evening came, and welcome Sarasate with Greek fire.

During the great week of the Fiesta he had tried everything from roulette to monte, but fortune's wheel had turned steadily against him. It was truly the devil's own luck and no mistake.

On days of fiesta, the church genuflexions are soon over; and then the gambling-booth, the race-course, bull-baiting, the cock-pit, and various minor amusements, come into full operation. In all these you may meet the robed priest of the morning, and stake your dollar or doubloon against his, if you feel so inclined.

"Who was that son of a flea?... Who was that son of a flea daring to doubt what I myself have seen?..." And what he had seen was the fiesta of the Peixet that was celebrated every year, simply listening to most learned men discoursing about the miracle in a commemorative chapel built on the banks of the glen.

For according to his own story at every town and village in the enemy's country, he and his brave followers, all of them thirsting for gore, were met by a brass band, and, accompanied by the leading citizens of the place, were marched down the principal street with great pomp and ceremony to where a fiesta in honour of the great American captain was in progress.

For the rest, Simoun remained unfathomable, since he had become very uncommunicative, showed himself seldom, and smiled mysteriously when the rumored fiesta was mentioned. "Come, Señor Sindbad," Ben-Zayb had once rallied him, "dazzle us with something Yankee! You owe something to this country." "Doubtless!" was Simoun's response, with a dry smile. "You'll throw the house wide open, eh?"

Perhaps only the newspaper correspondent, who concluded his account of the fiesta and its accompanying incidents in the following manner: "A thousand thanks, infinite thanks, to the opportune and active intervention of the Very Reverend Padre Fray Bernardo Salvi, who, defying every danger in the midst of the unbridled mob, without hat or cane, calmed the wrath of the crowd, using only his persuasive word with the majesty and authority that are never lacking to a minister of a Religion of Peace.

Then came a suspicion: that afternoon, upon leaving the prison, he had proceeded to the former house of Capitan Tiago to get his few personal effects and had found it transformed, prepared for a fiesta the wedding of Juanito Pelaez! Simoun had spoken of a fiesta.

An' I happened in at a hall we hev thet does duty fer' jail an' hospital an' election-post an' what not. Wal, just then it was doin' duty as a hospital. Last night was fiesta night these Greasers hev a fiesta every week or so an' one Greaser who hed been bad hurt was layin' in the hall, where he hed been fetched from the station.
