How They Got Even.
A practical joke was played nearly 30
years ago at a cocking-raain in Havana by
some sailors belonging to an American
man-of-war. The sailors had been bet
ting and losing day after day at the cock
pit, which was the amusement that they
most affected, until they were all left
without a cent. In that plight the sail
ors were when the man-of-war was or
dered off to San Francisco. A number
of months afterward the vessel returned
to Havana, and the Jack Tars had fully
matured a scheme for vengeance. Draw
ing all their pay, and borrowing all the
money they could in addition, atf the first
shore-leave they started for the cock-pit,
carrrying with them their gold and a bag,
about which they preserved a great deal
Some of the ship's officers surmising
that something was in the wind, followed,
but not even to them was the sailors' se
cret divulged. Scarcely had they reached
the pit when an excited Spaniard sprang
into the little arena, where a battle had
just ended. Under his left arm he car
Vied a magnificent game-cock in his right
hand he flourished a bag of doubloons, and
lie yelled forth a challenge on behalf of
his bird against anything that wore
No other challenge could have been
half so welcome to the sailors, for during
their former unhappy experience he had
been their bete noir, raking in their gold
pieces almost as f:u»t as they could bet
Them. His verbose and" grandiloquent
defiance was promptly accepted, the money
v»as staked, and the Americans shook
their champion out of the mysterious
A nondescript creature he was with a
great solid body, roughly covered with
chicken feather* and tar, its wings and
tail clipped, its head broad and adorned
with a keen curved beak, with long, sharp
talons at the ends of its toes, instead of
gall's upon his legs. Despite its strange
half-disguise, the officer recognized it at
once as rn American eagle. But the
Spaniards knew nothing abut it, and the
one who had made the match was furi
ous, deeming himself insulted by the pit
ting of such a miserable looking creature
against his splendid fowL The alcalde
ordered, however, that the fight should
take place according to the terms of the
challenge, and the senor tossed his bird
into the pit. It was ready to fight, of
course, for a game-cock of good blood
would not hesitate to attack a bird as big
as the fabled roc. So, the first notice the
American game-chicken, as the sailors
had christened their bird, received of the
presence of the enemy was a fierce attack.
He looked calmly down upon the game
cock strutting threateningly before him.
The sailors were not without anxiety lest
the keen gaffs might settle their eagle be
fore he got warmed up to his work, but
fear was quickly dispelled. The game
cock dashed forward again. In less than
a second the Spaniards witnessed an as
tounding sight. The American
chicken" placidly stretched out one
great claw, siezed his antagonist by the
head, drew him up, and applying the
other claw to his body, tore his head off
with a single pull. Then he proceeded to
eat him. A storm of imprecations and
shouts of astonishment rent the air, but
the sailors were too well armed and too
numerous for the Spaniards, and so they
got their money and returned aboard the
ship, laden with more gold than they ever
before had, and carrying their champion
