THE FATE OF RAMON.
Ami now Ilainon Medrano was a
rained man. The cloud of misfortune
had burst uiton him at a time when he
thought it wsis about to pass away. It
was the fault of those rascally, long
tongued Americans, with their peep
ing ways and their vile inquinitiveness.
For half a score of years he had lived
' in the old Spanish town of Logrono
and had lieen the landlord of the
Posada Huespedes Oriental. Now ho
looked back and saw all of his work
swept away. Kvery duro that he had
would go, too. for who was there who
would come to eat and drink with him
when they heard this story? Who
would want to sleep in the rooms
which were likely to be haunted, or
who would even want to stand hi front
f a hou-e honeycombed with unknown
feoles, like a rabbit's burrow, aud
where had been fouud a pair of griu-
ing skeleton?.?
Oaraiubrt! Why couldn't the for
eigners have gone to some other place.
r in coming to him at least have
tended to their own business?
But the dam aire was tloue. There
would be no more business for the
posada. Alight as well close the door
ow. go away ami let the guafxlia
ivile have the whole place to them
selves, to root and dig about in like
hogs in a new pen. And such a fine
place to leave, with the walls white
washed only a month ago and every
thing fixed up so it wa tit for a don
and his suite. Why hadn't the Amer
icanos stayed away or gone off aud
lost themselves in the de.sert?
Ramon couldn't forget it. It was a
fne night aud the inoou came up
arly. The two Americaus had sat ou
the balcony until it was quite late.
There badu't been much drinking in
bbe front room, where he kept the two
rows of shiny black bottles, so he had
goue to the back room with Dolores,
is wife, and Pepe, the boy. I'eue was
at his guitar, playing softly, as if he
were thinking of the girl down the
street to whom his father had prom
ised him in marriage. Once in a
great while passing wagon wheels
reaked outside and broke in upon the
low, soft music of the guitar. Kamon
was smoking a cigarette, freshly
rolled, aud was looking at the picture
f the piuk faced Madonna which hung
en the wall, uhile bis i'eft foot tapped
the tiled door as he unconsciously
kept time to the fandango. Ho re
membered all of these things so plainly
aow.
Have the Americans gone to bed
yet. t;ii.k jou?'' said Dolores, as she
puure-i out a tumblerful of fragrant
wine for him.
How should I know? I am not
j?l a valet t my guests." he had an
swered -somcnli.it testily. He was
sorry for speaking that way now. and
se be;:iu lo wish i.e had answered dif
loreuii'. Hut let that pass with the
rest. He drank his wine in silence so
leep that the gulps he took sounded
like the cracking of a mau'a neck.
Las onze!''
That was the niht watch going by
ryinir out 11 o'clock. Who c:r-il
whether it was 11 o'clock or not? He
was in a bad mood and there was no
ause for it. He looked at the deep
blue gown of the Madonna with the
pink face aud blew his cigarette smoke
spitefully up toward the whitewashed
timbers of the ceiling. He heard the
hush swinging over the front door
the sign of a wine shop rustle uu
easily against the outside wall and he
knew the wind had sprung up. It
scratched against the boards and made
him feel shivery, although it was a
warm night.
The next room was the kitchen with
its big fireplace, and he could hear the
murmur of the breeze as it came down
etweeu the bricks and stirred about
among the cold ashes of the hearth.
It's a uight for ghosts," said the
woman, as the wind blew in stronger
gusts.
'Mind 3-our business." llamon had
said, as he poured out more wine for
a mi seif. He did not like the thought
f ghosts, for on such nights us this,
when the wiud blew, a secret dread
came over him. Tho. strings of Pope's
guitar were silent now, ami t!ie hoy
caressoij the instrument as it lay in his
lap. II. s big black eyes had taken on
a dreamy look.
"Come, mi qiierMo. go to bed." said
Dolore-. and obediently he had hung
the guitar on the nail under the pict
ure, lie went into the little room on
the left.
It seemed to the woman as if it was
almost time for the night watch to
come again, but she would not wait to
bear the midnight hour shouted out.
So away she went to her room, while
Ramon, usually Ramon the cheerful
but to-night Ramon the gloomy, sat
bolt upright in his chair.looking stead
ily at the wall and thinking. He
roiled a fresh cigarette and refilled his
glass. He was alone now and it
seemed as if the scratching of the bush
outside was louder and more clamor
ous. The flickering light of the candle
made long shadows. From a murmur
like ths breathing of a sleeping child
in health the breeze had turned to a
growl. It seemed even to menace
him. The pink face of the Madonna
was menred into the bluo of her rown.
x ne coiors sniitea ana" she naa a oine
face and a pink gown, while it seemed
to him as if the child had slipped from
her arms to the ground.
Ha! but that is queer," he thought.
The ciiraretto burned his fingers, rous
ing him. and he knew he had been
asleep. There was no reason why ho
shouldn't have goue to bed. It mut
have been his fate, lie rolled another
cigarette; h.) would blow out the liirht
and go to bed. He held his cigarette
over the llame, took two putfs. and in
htead of one caudie on the table there
w -r:: two, then three, then a long line
of tii-iii, sputtering away logeiher.
What qii.er things were h'appcniug
this night.
U tinon. are you going to sit up all
night?" came the shrill voice of Dol
ores. He had beeu sleeping. The
voice roused him, but it was only for
an instant just long enough for him
to call her an uncomplimentary name
under his breath. Then he was nod
ding again. The cigarette fell to the
floor aud he dreamed. His dream
must have been a bad one. for it made
him clutch his chair. lu the midst of
it he heard sounds, like voices. He
heard a scratching noise, then a fall,
us if a loose brick had fallen down the
chimney. Wearily he lifted his heavy
eyelids." Tho row of candles faded
out. uutil there was only one left. He
looked half stupid with sleep at the
bottle, next at the empty tumbler aud
then at the burning cigarette on the
floor. He reached over mechanically
and picked up the roll of tobacco.
With an unsteady hand he poured
from the bottle iuto the glass and
drank. He pulled at the cigarette un
til the lighted end was in a glow. He
was dozing again.
Twelve o'clock!" cried the night
watch, and then
Then came the horror. In the
kitchen there was a crash. Like a
wounded beast he had leaped to his
feet with a cry. He snatched the can
dle up and ran to the door. He held
it high above his head and looked.
There, in the big fireplace, lie saw a
face. It was grimy with dirt. The
cj'es seemed to him to shine supernat
urally. Behind was a faint glow.
The figure moved forward, as if to
struggle out. llamon tried to speak,
but his tongue rattied in his mouth.
Three times as the figure squirmed
forward his lips moved. At the third
etfort the sound came. But such a
sound it was like the gasp of a dying
man.
'Is it you? Have you come back?"
The band which clutched the door
went up to his face and across his
eyes, shutting out what he saw. The
voice which came in answer was not
Spanish. It was American.
"Well, old man." it said, "how long
are you going to stand there? Give a
fellow a lift, can't j'ou?"
The terrified figure at the door was
Ramon, the landlord, once more. He
pulled himself together aud said in a
quavering voice:
"Ah, senor. I did not know you.
You have met with an accident."
He remembered very well how he
felt just theu. He would like to have
jumped forward and taken hold of the
American's neck just as . Well, just
as a dog chokes a rat. The more he
hatl thought of it the less able he
seemed to resist the temptation. The
hand which held the candle compress
ed itself until the muscles in his arms
stood out like ropes and the nails of
the other hand sunk into the hard
palm. He heard another voice. Both
Americans were in the fireplace. His
grip relaxed and he helped them out
the oue who had a stick in his hand
and the one who held a candle. They
all sat down together over the half
empty bottle. There they had told
him iu the hard Spanish which they
spoke, how, becoming tired of the
moonlight, they had gone into the
room; how they had looked curiously
into the fireplace and how they had
accidentally disturbed a slab.
Did he not know of the secret corri
dor which ran along between the walls
from one fireplace to another? they
asked.
Nor he had answered with some
sharpness. "Why should I?"
Well, then, they had said, it would
be a irooJ thing for him to look around
a little, for there were a couple of fel
lows up there with no flesh on their
bones; two skeletons, who wore smiles
on their bone faces, as if they were
glad they were dead.
The end of it all was that the three
went up to the room and into the fire
place, along the damp, foul smelling
corridor, so heavy with mold that the
candle burned dim. Half way they
came across the dead, and the land
lord, crossing himself piously, had
started back in horror. Both skele
tons were clothed. One wore the cos
tume of a Carlist captain, but the blue
jacket was mokly aud the lustre of the
brass buttons was hidden by a thick
catiug of verdigris. The jaunty red
Bisque hat had rolled to oue side and
the tapestrings which had held the
rope sandals were rotten, and they too
had fallen aside.
The dress of the other showed he
had been nothing more than a Spanish
peasant, and a poor one at that.
And now he was ruined, was Ramon.
No one would stop at his house uow.
and he wrung his hands at the thought,
apparently, as he backed up against
the corridor wall. Would the good,
kind American gentleman say nothing
about this affair, that he might save
the reputation of the house?
They had promised readily enough
and he had gone down-stairs to the
little room to sit and thiuk. He had
fixed up the fireplace in the kitchen
but he must think. The red sunlight
came boldly through the east window
and it saw him still thinking.
He was ruined.
Mechanically he arose and opened
the front doors for business. Dolores
came out, rubbing her eyes, wondering
where be had been and where he had
spent the night.
Ah, una amigita yolo creo." she re
marked, but hepaid no attention to
her.
Pepe came out yawning. The Amer
icans came down and breakfasted.
Others came iu to eat. Would those
Americans never stop talking.
"I'm going to keep that red skull
cap," one was saying as they went in
to the wine room, which already had
its quota of customers. How a story
flies. Before the siesta the secret was
out.
"Pack up." said Ramon to Dolores.
"This house has a curse on it now and
we will go away."
"How could they have come there,
think you?" asked the woman, mean
ing the skeletons.
"How should I know?" he answered.
And then they set to work to pack up.
Ramon was in a feverish excitement to
get away. It seemed to him as if he
could not bear the thought of stopping
in that house another night.
By the time the sun was ready to
shine on the other half of the world
the laden mules were in front of the
door, standing like statues, waiting for
the word of the driver. The bush over
the door swung carelessly on its
string. The stars began to come out.
"You're a fool, Ramon, to take us
off like this." said Dolores. "The
mountains are not pleasant places to
sleep ou when one has been used lo a
bed."
He glared at her, yelled at the mules
and the little train had started. They
went down the narrow street toward
the south, and when they had passed
the last gaping villager aud left the
last adobe house behind Ramon picked
ui) courare. He whistled a gay chan
son and drove his heels into the sides
of his mule as if to urge him to a faster
2a it.
"We will go to the south," he was
just saying, when Pepe. who had sharp
ears for a boy, exclaimed:
"Here comes the guardia civile. We
shall have company."
"Let them come," returned Ramon
recklessly. "Who cares? But may
the blessed madonna save us from the
brigands."
The hoof-beats sounded nearer and
nearer, until before long the leader of
the rough-looking troop was neck and
neck with Ramon's mule. The cap
tain reached over and w ith a dexterous
touch twisted the rope bridle from
Rimon's hand.
Not so fast. rood friend. One
would think you were going to leave
us." and he laughed.
"What do 3011 meau?" asked the
innkeeper.
"Nothing. But the bones of the
Carlist captain and of Antonio want
company. You must come back."
For the seiud time within twenty
four hours Ruiiuii fouud he could not
speak. He looked at the men with a
silent horror in his e3'es, allowed the
head of the mule to be turned toward
the town, and was ridden back like a
sack of meal going to market. The
shrill voice of Dolores and the crying
of Pepe mingled along the route. In
front of the posada was a group of ex
cited villagers, aud when the party
rode up they greeted Ramon with
cries of:
"Here he comes, the assassin."
"Kill the man who killed Antonio,
who never even harmed a cat," and
"Ah! the murderer!"
Ramon would have fallen from his
seat had there not been a guard on
either side. He was taken to the jail,
while Dolores aud Pepe went inside
the louely iun aud the mules were
taken to the stable and unpacked.
While the guards were taking llamon
away Dolores stalked up aud down the
vacant rooms and wailed:
"Why have they done this? Of
what great crime is Ramon guilty?"
Her question was answered soonei
than she thought, for she had scarcely
taken a dozen turns about thf weeping
Pepe when Padre Vinci en te, the soon
priest, entered. He told her that Ra
mon was accused of killing and rob
bing the Carlist captain and later of
killing Antonio.
"They say," he went ou, "that Ra
mon strangled Antonio because An
tonio knew of the death of the captain.
But. perhaps," reassuringly, "it's not
true."
That night there was a maniac at
the jail, a madman who shrieked and
cursed aud who at intervals cowered
tremblingly in a corner of the cell and
begged the good captain, the kind cap
tain, not to hurt him.
"I did not mean it, Antonio, my
friend. I did not mean to choke thee
so hard. (Jo back, I tell thee, go
back, there! Oh, holy mother, save
me from him." Thus he went on all
night, and thus, bit by bit, he told with
the ring of truth in his frenzy the
story of th murders. At one time he
seemed to be dragging a body iuto the
fireplace of the iuu.
"You'll be nice and safe here," he
muttered, "and warm, too, for in the
winter you'll have plenty of fire.
You'll never need money now, Auto
nio, and you'll never drink my wine
again and tell me to take the dead
captain's money for the pay. There
30U are now. Antonio, close by the
captain's side. Ah. you rogue, don't
steal his red cap. Good night, dear
Antonio, good night, and if your
friends call I'll tell them you have
gone away for your health. Ha! ha!
away for "your "health, Antonio, away
for your health."
Then he changed suddenly and
shrieked out:
"It was not I! I did not do it! T'vi
a poor innkeeper, gentlemen. Yiio aeiis
wine. Upon ray soul 1 did not do it.
I am ruined, do you hear? Ruined!
Piea-e let me go."
In the morniug there was a change.
Ramon was lying on the stone lloor
when the guard came in with the
padre. He was mumbliug and was
very near the end.
Have you anything to say to me,
my sou?" came the soft tones of the
priest.
Ramon sat up and glared at him.
He fell back stiffly and his hands
clutched at his throat. "Don't. An
tonio, good Antonio, don't. Padre,
padre, he is strangling me. I cannot
breathe. Let go. Antonio, let go,
curse you."
He "writhed in a last convulsion,
there was a hoarse scraping sound. aud
the innkeeper was dead. Hot by nat
ural causes, but by his own hand.
Under his vest those who searched
found his keen navaja stuck into his
body between the fourth and fifth ribs.
