THE TEXAN DUEL.
"Fat down that knife, or the conse
3uenoo be on your own head. Pat it
own, I say," and the hand of the
speaker slowly and deliberately raised a
TOVOiVjttV rr -, rv r - -, - , .
It was 0 very anxious moment lot the
lookers-on. One of the combatants was
a brawny- ruffian, upon -'whose faco was
stamped all the evil passions of the ha?
man race. Black haired, blank bearded,
black eyed, and strong enough to have
felled an ox with ? single blow of hie
fist. The other was a pale, slender, in?
tellectual-looking yoong man, boy al?
most, with light carls and complexion,
and bluo eyes.
The scene1 was in the little town of
Washington, on the Brazos Rivor, in
Texas, and the time midnight.
"Do yer know who yer talking, to,
boy?" was the coarse.. and uneducated
answer of Luke Bonton, than whom no
gambler in that vicinity was more de?
tested and feared,
A man to whom (and, not without Beat?
son) was imputed every crime-even wat'
of mordor; who was an unfailing shot
with tho pistol and rifle, and unmatched
in skill with that strictly border weapon
th? bowie-knife, A abort residence in
that locality had given him a reputation
as a duelist, for the long grass of the
Tampas covered the forms of two who
had fallen by bis hand* Where he came
from, no one knew, and he was particu?
larly reticent about his former life.
Still, it was whispered behind his back
for no one was foolhardy enough to say
it to his face-'that he was one of the
very few who escaped from the terrible
justice of "Natchez under the hill,"
when the outraged citizens awoke in
their wrath, and took speedy vengeance
in their hands. Be that as it might, he
had already earned a name sufficiently
bad to need no additions even where the
great majority of crimes were looked
upon lightly-making Texas in its in?
fancy the paradise of scoundrels.
Of the other, his boy antagonist, even
less was known. It was but two days
since his arrival, and he hod come' on
horseback, and alone. Of his business,
he had nothing to say, but his suave
manner, and quiet, gentlemanly deport?
ment had already ' made Lim friends
among the better portion of the sparse
"Tory much to their surprise, there
fore, was it that they had seen him en?
ter into a contest at cards with tho great'
professional gamester, Benton, confluent
that he would either be cheated or bul?
lied oat of his money, in case he was
successful, which was almost beyond the
range of possibility.
But for two hours the game had been
progressing, the gambler getting more
angry at every deal, and tho youth keep?
ing perfectly cool, and breathing taunt?
ing words, as if his object was still fur?
ther, to provoke him. Ur it was his pur-,
peso to do so, he was more than saccoss
fflCfor Benton had soddenly sprung to
his feet and drawn his heavy knife, with
an oath upon hi? lips and murder flash?
ing from his eyes.
"Pot down that knife," again repealed
the young man, Mark Whiteman, as he
had given all to understand was his
name. "Put it down. No ono but a
coward and a cheat would attempt to uso
soch fatal argnments'in a simple game of
"Er cheat-coward!" thundered Ben?
ton, with all his wrath aroused. "By
heaven, I'll make yer eat yer words."
"For. fear you do not felly understand,
I will repeat them."
"Ter dar? not!5' was hissed from th?
more than tightly compressed lips. . j
"Coward! cheat! I dare say anything
to one like you."
"Coward er gin?" and his knife flasher'
more wildly around.
In vain the others interfered. Thej
cared little for the professional and bru
tal' gamester, but they did for yoong
Whiteman, and could nob but be sur
prised at the almost sublimity of hi:
coolness and bravery, oven though hi
was courting his own death.
Something in the manner of tho y o un j
man, too, appeared to deeply impres
his antagonist, who had never before re

Ia an instant all was confusion. Bea?
ton sprang forward with his knife up?
raised, and would have out down his in?
sulter with a blow. But others did the
some. They realized that blood must be
shed, but they insisted upon "fair play. "
Evan in the horrible code of Texas duel?
ing they demanded that rules of honor (?)
should be strictly adhered to.
"If you must fight," said an old
ranger, "and I see no way .to avoid it
now, it shall ba all open and abovo
boord. It's your ohoioe, Benton. Fiok
your weapon, and stand up and fight it
out like a man."
"Pistols, then-ten paces-word!" was
the gruff answer.
"Are you satisfied?" was asked of
"Yes-perfectly. Let him take his
revolver-I have mine. We will com?
mence firing at the word, and continue
to odvanoe to do so until one or both
A few steps from the house brought
them to a spot where the green grass
and bright flowers had more than once
been stained in suoh encounters. The
men were planed, the weapons prepared,
and the fatal word was about to be given,
when Whiteman coiled the ranger, (who
was acting os his second,) and toking his
hand within his own, whispered:
"You appear to be a true-hearted man,
and I wish to ask a favor of you."
"Speak on. Anything I oan do shall
be done. Just say the word, and I'll
take your place."
"No, not that. But if I should chance
to foll, promise that you will seo me
buried ss I am. Do not let my dress be
disturbed in the least. Boll me up in a
blanket, and let no one pry around me
after I am dead. Will you promise me
"It is a strange thing to ask, bat I'll
"Then I am ready."
"Yes, I'll do it," repeated the ranger,
as he slowly retreated, muttering to
himself, "and if yoa do fall, I'll send o
ballet through the skull of him that kills
you; and may the good Lord forgive me
if it is murder."
"Now, Luke Benton," continued
Whiteman, "I om ready. Yet oae
word;" and he stepped to bis sido and
handed him a miniature. "If I die,
look at this."
"I'll do it now;" and with trembling
fingers he undid the clasp, then let it
drop from his haod os if it had been o
serpent, exclaiming, "No; I'll not fight
you. Take him away, some one; take
him away, for God's sake."
"Not fight! Then yoa will die like o
dog!" and Whiteman raised his weapon
aaa motioned for the word to be
It was somo time, however, before his
request was complied with. The sinewy
frame of the gambler trembled like a dry
leaf in the autumn wind; all the color
had left his face; his lips were like ashes;
his pistol was pointing downwards, and
shook in his hand. At length he suc?
ceeded, by a mighty effort, in calming
himself. He braced his nerves, glared
widely around, and, with all the calm?
ness of despair, stood apon his guard.
"Are you ready--both ready?"
"Yes, came simultaneously from two
pairs of lips.
? 'One-two-three-fire !"
The report of the pistols cut the last
word in twain. The seconds rushod for?
ward and lifted the men up again, foi
both had fallen. One, however, would
never breathe more. Luke. Bentoo had
fought his last duel-bad gone to hi.
final account with his heart ballet-cleft.
Whiteman, too, was dangerously wound
ed. With his breath bubbling fort!
through blood, he called the ranger tc
him and asked him for the miniature,
It was given him-the fair face of t
young man. He covered it with blood]
fingers-whispered, "Bury it with me,'
and ho, too, had cea?ed to live.
With tearful eyes that form was pre
pared for the grave, the ranger insisting
that his promise to the dead should bi
fulfilled to the letter. But all saw auf

FOR. PURIFYING THE BLOOD.
THE reputation this
excellent inedioine en?
joye, is derived from its
cures, many of which
aro truly marvellous;
inveterate cases of Scro?
fulous Disease, where
thc system seemed sat?
urated with corruption,
k have been purified and
-''cured by it. Scrofulous
which were aggravated by the scrofulous con?
tamination until they were painfully afflicting,
have been radically cured in sttcb treat num?
bers in almest every section of the country,
that the public scarcely need to be informed of
its virtues or uses.
Scrofulous poison is ono of the most destruc?
tive enemies of our race. Often, this unseen
and unfelt tenant of the organism undermines
the constitution, and invites the attack of en?
feebling or fatal diseases, without exciting a
suspicion of its presence. Again, it seems to
breed infection throughout tho body and then,
on some favorable occasion, rapidly develop
into one-or other of its hideous forme, either
ou the surface or among the vitals. In the
latter, tubercles may be suddenly deposited in
the !ut:gs or heart, or tumors formed in the
liver, or it shows its presence by eruptions on
tho skin, or foul ulcerations on some part of
the bodv. Hence the ocoask nal use of a bottle
of this' SARSAPARILLA ts advisable, even
when no active symptoms of disease appear.
Poraons aniioted with the following complaints
generallv find immediate relief, and st length
cure, by'the use of this SARSAPARILLA : st.
Anthony's Fire, Rose or L'rysij.f Ui.>, Tetter. Sali
Rheum, Scald Head, Ringitohh, Sore Eye*,
Sore Ears and other eruptions or visible forms
of Scrofulous disease. Aleo, in the more con?
cealed forms, as Dyspepsia, Dropsy, Heart Die
ease, Fits, Epilepsy, Neuralgia and tho various
Ulcerous i.flections of the muscular and nerv?
Syphilis or Venereal and Mercurial Din-eases
are cured by it, though alotg time is required
for subduing these obstinate maladies by any
medicine. Butiflng ?onfinneaSvee ?fthis me?
dicine will cure the complaint. Leuccrrhoa or
Whites; Uterine- Ulcerations, and Female Rjr
eases, are commonly soon relieved and .ulti?
mately cured by its purifying aud invigorating
effect.' Minute directions iu each ea-e aro found
in our Almanac, supplied gratis. RheumatiSni

to it, as also Liver Complaints, Torpidity, Con
