"No; 1 bellow 1 will go nijself and

The Gentleman!? War In Which Itl
Tal MoTora tinners cd New Year's,
For years thero had been n bitter
rivalry between the towns of .Tuba
Hill nnd Dog Creek, nnd such a thing
as an olllclal visit between town otfl
clals had not been dreamed of Some
times a Dog Creek man who went
over to Juba Hill got back nllvc, nnd
Instances could bo cited where a Juba
Hill man hnd got out of Dog Creek
without being shot at These were ex.-

ceptlonnl cases, however, and there
was no guldo to go by. When Peto
Mahoucy was elected mayor of Dog
Greek, It was on bis pledge to mako
It still hotter for Juba Hill. That
same fall Joe Drake was elected
mayor of Juba Hill on his pledgo that
ho would endeavor to wipe Dog Creek
off the face of tho earth. December
wns wearing Itself away and both
towns wer whooping It up when
Mayor Mahoney beard that Mayor
Drake said he was no gentleman.
"No gentleman, eh?" ho sld to somo
of his closest friends. "Well, wo'li seo
nbout that. New Year's day will soon
bo here, and do you know what I'm go
ing to do? I'm going to mount my
mule and tide over to Juba mil and
call on Mayor Drake. I'll call as a
gentleman should."
At about the same tlmo Mayor Drako
was told that Mayor Mahoney did not
consider him a gentleman, and ho sat
down nnd thought It over nnd then
said to his friends:
"I'll prove that Mayor Mahoucy Is a
hosi thief and a liar. On Now Year's
day I'll ride over there ns n gentleman,
call on him as a gentleman and let him
see the difference between a scrub aud
a man."
It Is needless to add that both towns
onccurnged their respective mayors In
tholr plans. When New Year's day
came, both mouuted their mules nt
nbout the same hour nud set out, and
as n conscqucneo they met hulf way
between the towns, Knch had n fol
lowing of about a hundred. As tho
two mayors enrno to a halt Mnyor Ma
honey graciously observed:
"Will tho gentleman from Juba mil
return to Dog Ctcck with tho other
gentloman?"
"Tho gentleman from Juba Hill wnB
about to ask tho other gentleman to
accept f his liospltnllty," was tho re
ply of Mayor Drnke.
"As a gentleman nnd knowing what
belongs to good manners"
"As another gentleman nnd knowing
all about etiquette"
"I must suy that Dog CretU has tho
biggest gravcynid,"
"t Juba Hill has the most sa
loons." "And that you aro a duffer and a
llnrl"
"And that you are a quitter and n
sueak!"
Then tho respective nnyors pulled
their respective gnus with a whoop.
The respective gentlemen on either
pldo followed suit, and for half nn hour
tho most cheerful Industry prevailed.
The gentlemanly shooting contluucil

and then Major Mahoney camo out
from behind a tree nud said:
Vriio mnyor of Dog Creek, who Is
still a gentleman und no hog, wilt uow
bid you a polite good day anil retire."
Then Mayor Drnke rose up from bo
hind the stump which had sheltered
him through the fray and replied:
"Tho mayor of Juba Hill, who Is
also a gentloman and knows when he's
got enough, presents bis compliments
and best wishes aud trusts that this
auspicious beginning of tho New Year
may strengthen the bond of love bew

And then each side Hided up Its vic

QUAINT NEW
YEAR CUSTOMS.
THE DAY AND ITS OBSERVANCES IN
MANY LANDS.
Sometimes ft SUncllnrr of Supersti
tious Ceremoiilfs und Exceiislvo
Jollity Odd festivities In Scotland,
China and Japan.
Dvery nation has Its partlcutnr feast
days aud holidays, some paying great
er attention to one and some to an
other, but all peoples on the face of
the earth who reckon time at all In
some manner greet the New Year.
Wo have so shuffled our calendar
that now the occurrence of tho New
Year on iho 1st of January has lost Its
significance. Among primitive nations,
however, the New Year invniiably
marked the opening of one of tho nat
ural divisions of the seasons.
One of the oldest of Now Year cus
toms Is that practiced by the Alnos of
Japan. For n thousand years thc30
people have stood still In their civili
zation, following nil thtlr primitive
customs and ceremonies. New Year
with them Is n season of merrymaking
which winds up with the great bear
feast, called Omsla, in which a huge
bear Is sacrificed.
In Scotland, where Christmas Is not
observed ns a geuerul holiday becauso
no many Presbyterians look upon Its
observance as a species of supersti
tion. New Year's day Is aJojous one,
and a strange way of celebrating the
dying of the old year has long been
customary there. The Inst night of
the year Is called "Hogmeuayo night"
and Is celebrated by drinking, singing
and general festivities.
Tho Chlnesp nro notorious for their
fondness for holidays, and the Celes
tials make the most of this one. They
nra not content with ono day, but take
n whole month tq celebrate the ap
proach of the Now Year. Chinese lan
terns, tlrecrnekers. feasting and tho
paying up of old debts play tho major
part In the ecieinanles.
A strange custom In many parts of
Europe Is tluit of having n member of
tho family, cither tho eldest or youn
gest, open the family Illble at random
nnd place bis or ber fiuger nt any spot
on the open 'page, without glancing nt
It. The verse'thus marked Is regarded
as a sort of text for the ensuing 12
months. .
A very poetical old ceremony Is that
of tho so callid. Messc des Anlmiux, or
animals' mass, which takes place on
Now Year's eve In tho Trench depart
ment of the' Covennes, a country In
which the celebration of the Now Year
almost entliely supersedes that of
Christmas. This truly pastoral festival
Is given in behalf of the herds of cattle
which constitute tho chief wealth of
tho hardy mountaineers. Bpforo tho
ceremony begins herds of cows and
sheep nnd goats arc driven to an open
spneo beforo the chuicir. Inside tho
building Is gathered a crowd of stal
wart men and women In festive rai
ment, each holding a lighted candle
while the euro celebrates mass.
Komo of the aborigines of our own
land hav c Nevy Year enstonjs that nre
exceedingly Interesting, notably that
of the Moqul Indians, called So-j'n-u-ua,
which Is a singular and elaborate
mythical drama, divided Into two
parts, In which offerings are mnde to
eillgles of tho great plumo headed ser
pent, the enemy of the sun. This, Is fol
lowed by a sun dance In which tho con
flict between tho orb pf day nnd the
Inferior hostile gods Is. portrayed.
