General Putnam's Duel.
A certain Englisliofficer,' who
was a prisoner on Lis parol or
word of honor took mortal offense,
at somo sharp remarks, in which
the General had indulged respect
ing the IJritish, and chnllenged
him, thinking this was the easiest
way to take satisfaction and cor
rect the General's candid opinion
at the same time. Tut nam accept
fcl. Jiia lraggarlQhalei)e without
aify' h;o6ita'ti0H,lJand "proposed to
meet; hiurbrr the following day.
On the next" "morning they were
both' to bo at a certain place at a
specified hour, and 1 Putnam, who
was the challenged party, and of
course had choice of them, and was
to provide the weapon?.
When the English officer arrived
at the place agreed upon, he found
Putnam seated on a bench, on
which stood close beside him a keg
of what was,to appearance.powder.
A hole was bored into the head,
and a match had been thrust into
the hole, all ready to be lighted.
Putnam removed his pipe from
his mouth,and told the Englishman
to sit down on the bench on the
other side of the keg.
As soon as the latter had com
plied, Putnam lit the match byJiis
pipe, and began to smoke again
with as much unconcern as if there
was no possible danger. His op
ponent sat and watched the burn
ing of the thatch as long as he
could and then began to grow ner
vous. The moment the fire came near
the few grains ot powder that lay
scattered about the head of the bar
rel, the officer sprang up in great
haste and ran off at great speed.
'You arc just as brave a man as
I. thought, you were,' exclaimed the
triumphant Putnam, 'this is only
a keg of - onions, with powder
sprinkled over its head to try your
pluck! I see you don't like the
smell I .
He had the laugh against the
Englishman, who never forgave
him the mock test to which he
thus publicly put his personal

said, . as well as .a, choking fit ol
laughter would let her:
"Well, upon mv word. Cantnin.

Things I Don't Like to Hear.
BY PHILANDER PEABODY.
I don't like to hear women talk
unless they have something to say,
and. yet I generally listen when
they talk to me.
.1 don't like to hear politicians
say tney don't want office, nor maid
ens say they don't want to get mar
ried. I don't like to hear men de
nounce Women's Kights ' unless
they have been married at least
seven times and then there would
be-some excuse for them. " '
I don't like to hear girls say No
when they don't mean it it sounds
Worse, however, when they do mean

A Cockand-Bull Story.
; The Chicago Times has the fol
lowing cock-and-bull story tele
graphed it from Iowa:,
MUSCATINE, May 9.
Mr. Meltzar, who lives on the
west side ol Cedar liiver. about
niiie miles from this city, says that
immediately alter daylight yester
day morning, while feeding his cat
tle In the yard, he was astonished
at the appearance of an immense
structure, evidently a balloon, lie
describes the object to be a sort of
aerial boat of mammoth dimen
sions, and supported by threo im
mense balloons. It, was quite low
at tho time It passed him, and he'
was able to distinguish several la
dies and gentleman looking 'over
the sides. One of tliem hallooed
some words which.- he did not un
derstand, and' threw, .overboard a
flask of curious pattern. Mr. M.
says that he' does not suppose any
body will believe his story, but he
is ready to make affidavit that what
he tells is strictly tiuo. Ho says
that the hull of the boat appeared
ten or fifteen feet high, by forty in
length; and ; fifteen or twenty in
breadth. There wero windows in
it, through which.theraysof lamps
could be. seen,' and a Hag floated
from the snv lie could not see
the design.; The ladies waved hand
kerchiefs.' ;lie thinks ho saw ten
or fifteen persons' altogether. ' One
man was high' tip-on the side ol the
center balloon, climbing a ropo
ladder. While ,he gazed, at it in
speechless wonder, a lot of sand
was thrown overboard, and I ho
ship rose with grc'at .velocity ,sween
ing rapidly away ip a westerly di
rection, and in twenty minutes
time was out of sight.
Eloquent Peroration. We give
below the concluding portion of i
the He v. Mr. Caddis' address to the
Odd-fellows of Cleveland:
"We aro writing our names on
humanity, in lines of undying
light. He that engraves his name
on these, through his charitable
works and good deeds, engraves it
on an eternal tablet. Then write
your names thereon, and when the
sire of us all in the Grand Lodge
above calls us to account,1 he will
find our names graven on the White
Stone, and bid us welcome to eter
naljoy. To one and all 1 would
say, ere I close your being an
Odd-fellow .will not, in any way,
interfere with yourdomestic, social,
religious or political enjoyment.
Odd-fellowship sweetens the ties of
domestic life, endears the social
relations of earth, makes us better
citizens, and is the forerunner to
our present and eternal hanniness
Then let us push; on the good work
of increasing the triumph of Odd
fellowship triumphs that remain
forever. For long after time has
mouldered into dust, the noblest
monuments of genius and .art,
erected as testimonials of man's
creatness and worth, those of Odd
fellowship! shall" still remain , clad
in me origin naoniments ot etern
al truth! Its victories are death
less,.and its triumphs destined to
be universal. . Its heart-cheering
songs of Friendship, Love and
Truth, shall never die. They will
be heard above the groans of ex
piring nature, and only lost as they
blend with the soriies' of the re
