When the Aro swept in from all

fled in terror, but Boyd deoided to re
main until tho last moment. When
flight was impossible he p'uogod into
tho mill pond. The mill burst into

the mill was the oil tank. With a
roar heard above the hissing of the
fire, it exploded. His face from a

head, w?-bTTrned black, showing what

Morristown, N. J., May 13.-As tho.
result of a duel fought at Wharton
over Rosa Latzsky, an 18 year old
Hungarian girl, who. told her suitors
that they would have to fight for her,
Henry Waldee is io the hospital in a
badly damaged oondition.
Rosa helped to arrange the duel,
which was to take plaoe with clubs in
the presence of no witnesses save
Rosa and a young man whom she ask
ed to accompany her to the plaoe.
She w?tohed her admirers cudgel each
other with their clubs until neither
oould stand, and then she departed
with her friend, and they were mar
ried by a justice of peace.
The duelists were found later by
mine employes, both unconscious and
Waldee so badly bruised that be was
brought to the hospital.
Why Pupil and Teacher Clash.
It ia a pity that the remarks of
Supt. John Bon on the matter .of pun
ishment in the schools last night
I could not have been heard by every
patron of public schools. It is very
true that thoughtless and indiscreet
parents are wholly to blame for the
troubles now so frequently occurring
between pupils and teachers and pu
pils themselves in the public schools
of the country. Impatience of re
straint and an exaggerated idea of the
importance and the personality of
every ohiok and child in his teens is
at the root of tho trouble.' Parents
who cannot control or restrain their
children at home, or who aro willing
to put up with scant oourtesy and con
venience in the matter' of obedience
are generally the most ready to take
exception to an attempt to restrain or
control their joy and pride when they
send him to sohool. People with such
notions as these ought not to inflict
their unruly offspring on a long suffer
ing teacher. It is too late to teaoh a
ohild obedience and promptness and to
get s tubber ness out of their head
when the child is beginning to feel
his inches. There ought really to bo
a'military reformatory for such and
their bad influence removed from the
aohools.. The Times is delighted to
know that there has been little to
complain of in tho matter of discip
line in the local schools during the
past year, and wo hope that Florence's
schools will always be a model in
this respeot.-Florence Times.
