OLD DUELING RULES.
"MUCH USEFUL ADVICE" FROM AN
If the Coiiilintnnt Dies nm a Result of
(he Kncousder, lie la Told So Oo Off
With ns Good (Irsee na Poaalule.
Irlahmen Not Good Seconds.
To Englishmen dueling Is happily n
lost art, but rhreo-quartcrs of a century
ngo dueling was sufficiently In voguo to
Induce an anonymous writer to publish
book "containing much useful infor
mation," Ironically dedicated to Daniel
O'Connell, Esq., M. P., and James Silk
Bnckinghaia, Esq., M. P., ns "enter
taining tlie opinion first promulgated
by the immortal Falstoff of happy
memory that discretion is the better
part of valor. "
Tho author advises "all my country
men who go abroad to nso tho pistol in
stead of the sword when Ihey havo tho
choice of the weapon, as the balanco of
killed and wounded is now much in fu
vor of tho French, who. npon the ter
mination of the late war, amused them
selves by occasionally spitting Bomo half
dozen of our traveling young fashion
ables before breakfast." lie recom
mends "Pnrdoy, in Oxford street, as
tho maker of the bost dueling pistol
locks," care in tho selection of a stock
which fits tho hnnd comfortably and to
eschew "saw handles." Barrels should
bo ten inchos long and half rifled,
which, considering that throughout his
volnmo ho poses as a man of the strict
est honor, is puzzling, for he admits
that a wholly rifled pistol Is considered
an unfair woupon, therefore one not ap
pearing to bo rifled should bo substi
tuted. On "tho chances" ho wrltcsi "Mnny
a poor, long; nrmed, straggling fellow
has receives! tho coup dl (slo) ccour (or
fatal stroke) who might still havo been
in existence had ho known how to pro
tect his person in the field," the neces
sary protection consisting in standing
sideways and drawing in tho stomach.
"Should tho party be hit" presumably
becauso ho could not draw in his stom
ach "ho must not feel alarmed, " Thisi
seems difficult, as n man with a bullet
In his stomach can hardly lie expected
not to display some littlo natural nnxio
ty, for, as Is admitted later, "a shot in
tho dlgestlvo organs must bo particu
larly annoying to a bon vivnut. " To
aldermen his advico is "the old method
of lighting the back to tho adversary
and discharging over the shonldor."
"Tho chances of a man's being killed
nro about 14 to 1, and of his being
hit nbont 6 to 1." Ho arrives at
this conclusion by dividing a man's
body, when opposed to his udversary,
Into nlno parts. Therefore he says, "As
iu only three of these a wound would
prove mortal, the chances uro 3 to
1 against his being killed, and 5 to
1 against his being hit that is, how
ever," ho hastens to ndd, "provided his
antagonist has uover read my work. If
he has, tho case may bo different I"
Tho combatant is told "not to allow
the idea of becoming a target to make
him uneasy, but to troat the matter
jocosely," Ho is to laugh nw-ny the
evening over a bottle of port, and play
a rubber of whist, but he must avoid
drinking to excess, or taking "any food
that tends to croato bile. " becauso "bil
ious objects aro not seen either distinct
ly or correctly. " This would rather be
a valid reason for getting ns bilious as
posslblo. A mini witli an attack ot
jaundice should bo Invisible, and nblu
to blazo at his antagonist in perfect
safety If ho cannot fclecp on retiring
to rest, ho is to read Byron's "Cliildo
Harold." His servant is to coll him at 5
and give him a stiongcupof coffeo.
Then ho is to smoke a cigar, nud "on
his way to tho sceuqiot nction" ho Is to
tako a brandy and soda, us n most
"grateful stimulant and corrective."
No wonder our author recommends
him at this point to draw In his stom
ach "If ho dies, ho Is to go off with ns
goodgMue as posstblel" On tho other
hand, if ho lilts his antagonist, ho Is to
tako off bis hut to him and express ro
grot A challenge is not to bo in rhyme,
such as "a certain poetical, brandy lov

to u brother officer who ran otf with his
Wounds on tha flesh a surgeon's skill may

An Irishman is not to bo chosen as

Innate lovo of lighting they cannot
bring nn affair to mi amlcablo adjust

to prevent lho affair coming to a seri
ous issno. Other udvlco is for tho sec
ond to tuko enro his principal Is not In
convenienced by the sun, and to got his
antagonist with something dark behind
him, when it will be much more easy
to hit him.
As may be inferred, the author holds
by dueling, for "the man who falls
In a dnol nnd the Individual who is
killed by tho overturn of a stagecoach
ore both unfortumito victims, to a prac
tice from which wo derive great advan
tages. It would bo absurd to prohibit
stago traveling becauso occmionally a
few lives are lost by on overturn, and
unless men endeavored to destroy each
other they might live to ii patriarchal
ngo and multiply so .rapidly that tho
soil would soon be insufficient to sup
ply thein with nourishment." with
which rodtictio nd nhsnrdum tho vol
ume may well be put back on tho shelf.

FOOLED IN A HORSE TRADE,

A prominent English landlord was
one day riding across a common ad

mounted. After the usual salutations
they rodo ou in silence for some min

bis horse, a balky animal, whereupon
it dropped to its knees.
"What's the matter with your
horse?" asked his lordship. Tho em
barrassed tenant remarked by way of
explanation that his steed always acted
that way when there was game to bo
A moment later, to tho tenant's sat

jumped out of some bushes near by.

he at onco drove a bargain by which ho
secured tho tenant's barebacked beast
in exchange for his own fine mount,
perfectly saddled. With much agility
the tenant leaped to his new horse, nnd
