creek after Bill Hopkins. When Bill
cmno up, tho stranger looked him over
nuil queried :
"Ar you a fighter?"
"I nr'," mcxlestly replied Bill.
"Hcv you got a record?"
"I hev. I'vo licked every critter who
lias dared stnnd lcforo mo from Grassy
Valley to Aco High."
"But nr' you n gentleman as well as
a fighter?" persisted tho stranger.
"Of courso I ar'l" suidBill, "and I'd
liko to eco tho blumed galoot who Bays
I hain't! But what's that got to do
with it, and what's all this riot about?"
"I'm wantin to conio across a critter
with hand," leplicdthn stranger, in soft
and oily tones.
"You ar' wantin a fuss?"
"I ar', but tho feller must be a gen
tleman, samo as I nr. No gentleman
over fights with a loafer. "
"Waal, I don't seo why wo can't git
together," Paid Bill, "but I don't sco
tho objick exactly."
"Tho objick 13 to lick you!"
"Oh, Bhonr'l Well, fix things your
own way, nud I'll bo on hand!"
After consulting with Judgo VTatkins
nud others, tho stranger arranged mat
ters. Ho war ted to light Bill rough and
tumble and ho wanted tho two of thera
to go up on tho hill after dark and have
it out nloue. Tho boys demurred to this,
as they wanted to sco tho fun, but Bill
Hopkins said it should bo that way. As
ho understood matters, gentlemen al
ways went off by themselves to settle
disputes. If tho stranger wns a gentle
man, ho couldn't afford to do anything
else Ho'd lick him out of his boots in
flvo minutes, but ho'd lick him as ono
gentleman should lick another.
Thus it camo about that thopnir went
off together up tho hill after dark, each
ono bowing and scraping and trying to
outdo tho other in gentility. Thoy wcro

When tho battlo was over, tho victor wns
Jp hoot and vt 0 would go up and bring
down tho mangled remains of tho van
quished. The signal was given as agreed,
bat nt tho cud of nn hour no one had
booted. Wo had just started to go up
when Bill camu down to us. There wcro
tears in his eyes, his back was humped
up, nud ho dragged his legs as ho
"Waal, is thocorpso upthar?" asked
"Nary a corpse "
"Didn't nobody get licked?"
"No. Tho feller slid out unbeknown
to mo beforo you gin tho signal, aud
thar was nuthin fur me to light!"
"Tho durned skunk! Why, ho said
ho was a gentleman!"
"Yes, ho said that."
"And wo guaranteed him that yon
was a gentleman."
"Yos. I hain't hud nuthin hurt my
fcolin's liko this fur 20 years!"
"I should say not Gentleman, tho

Tho preamble and resolution wcro
unanimously ndopted and Bill wiped
his tears away, braced up his feelings
and was socai himself again.

Gentlemen : I have taken only two bottles
of Paine' s Celery Compound for rheumatism,
and liver and stomach troubles, and will be
frank in saying that I am well pleased with the
results. I used one bottle and was so much
better that I abandoned its use for a
time, but my old stomach trouble made its ap
pearance again. I procured another bottle in
September and after using that I felt well.
