ma Beta wa.i cciiuinly a (ireat nueccra.
At .li Iouk tab.o ut I BO (.'nests, nf all
ages nml lrtnn nil parts or tho land.
Tho feast was cnilcil when the captain
r.ro?o lrom his place ni ar the head of
tho board. Straight of nuro and ulrrt
of eye, liu boro bin CO years lightly.
"Coys," pnys tho captain, "I haven't
been to a Oauiuin Ueta dinner for JO
years. Tho last time. I went I was a boy
in colletio. As l look nrottuil ir.o I tun
(ilnd I am not tho oldest nluniuu.i here,
for I feel as young tn any fri finnan, i
But I camo hero tonight to tell yon n
story, and if you hao rattenco to hear
ino I may as well tiegin. Itcnieniber,
wo old ones nro garrulous at times and
stop mo when yon havo had enough."
Ills nntlieueu was all attention, nnd
tho captaiu lighted n fresh cigar, blow
out n pull of stnoko nml began.
"I was tho first northern iiinu to
plant cotton In Atknusaa nftcr tho war.
Tho i-tato had declared for tho Union
early 1 u lSll-1, but tlifirjvras plenty of
Ir.wlef s K oitisionitin about, and n north
erner's life anil property vrero nono too
safe Bcforo 1 had been long at my
planting I got n notico from sonio of my
eecessiouist friends that I must stop op
erations or lcaro tho district if I had
any regard for my life. In chort, they
gave mo to understand that if thoy
canght mo they wonld Ftriug mo up to
tho nearest treo ns suro as my nnmovas
Jim Roberts. Now, I didn't intend to
stop plautiug, nnd I didn't intend to bo
hangeil, fo I went niu ml and told I hem
they could hang mo If they could catch
inc.
"About a month nftcr that I was rid
ing across country onu afternoon to get
a little busiucss dune in tho nearest
town. An I entered a lonely plnco of
road n dozen men jumped out of tint
woods, pointed their guns nt my bend
and ordt n d niu to halt and dismount.
I saw I could do nothing but surrender
at dircretiuu, so I camo down from my
liorfo and tk matched off in silence.
In a few minutes we turned into a Inuo
that led deeper into tho woods and kept
on until wo eamu to a li 1 1 lo clearing
Quo of my friends bronglit out a rope,
tilling one end of it over the limb of a
convenient treo and had tho other end
slipkiiutted around my neck in a jiffy.
"Probably noiieof you hns ever felt a
liaugnuiu'B ropo around his neck, ro yon
can't appreciate tho state of my feelings
at that time. I'll toll you, I felt pretty
serious aud thought my lease of lituhad
tun out for ccitaiu. But n uuui clinps
to life nt such times, and all at ouco 1
had a hnppy thought, I remembered
that I had u paekngo of excel lent cigar
in lay pocket, and I drew it out.
" 'Cieullemeu, ' 1 said, with as much
coolness as 1 could muster. 'I know
that I havo but a few minutes morn to
live. 1 want to ask ono favor. Oivo me
timo to smoko out a cigar before yon
swing mo into eternity. Will yon join
wo't You xv ill Hud thum moat excel
lent.' "My captors grimly n?scnted, and wo
lighted our 'weeds' together. No one
said a word Well, boys, I made ths.c
cigar bold out, you may depend. But it
would bum. Littlo by little tho icdi be
gan to get longer mid drop off until
thero xvas just so much left. " And tho
captain held up his smoking stiinij,
measuring its small rcmniuuu- ethical
ly xvlth his f.i ger.
" 'Well.' thought I to myself, 'hero
goes for a few moro puffs anyway. '
and 1 xvas just getting tho very lnit of
thum when wo heard a horso coining
through tho trees. A fiuo looking fellow
rodo up, who seemed to bo a sort of
commander of tho compnuy. 'Hello,
boys!' ho called out, 'who'vo jou got
here?' 'We've got Roberts, and we'ro
goirg to hang him,' said they. 'Ail
right,' said tho officer and camo over to
havo a look at niu
"Now, 1 had on my xvatch chain this
littlo -badgo here," ami tho captaiu
touched n jeweled monogrntu of gold
that hung to his breast, "I havo always
worn it thero nnd expect to as lcng.as I
livo. My coat was open, nnd as tho Con
federate camo up his eyo caught tho
budKO. Well, sirs, ho turned all sorts of
colors, and leaning close to my car
whimpered the unmo of our fraternity,
nt tho biiiuo timo grasping my hnudxvilli
tho good old Uaiiimn grip, given Willi
tho strength of a giant. Then ho turned
to his men. 'Boys,' said lie, 'this man
is my friend. You must let him go.'
And in an instnut ho took tho ropo from
my neck, led up my hop-e, pulled a pair
of pistols from his pockot aud handed
ono to mo. 'Now, brother, ' said ho, 'do
fend yourself aud get away as best you

Thero was a storm of applause when

"But, captain," ;rird moro than ono,
'you'll havo to finish tho story. Who

yon over seo him ngaiu?"
Tho captaiu aroso again, smiling.
"Who was he? Well, ho belonged to ono
cf our southern chapters. And did 1
ever see him again? Yes, I did."

SARCEY'3 FAMOUS DUCL.
Tim Not I Tort-dan Critic' Own Kloiy of
tl.e lliiciiunlcr.
At tht moment appears n gentleman
xvhtinrT.il' Puns knows and almost nil
Parisians adore namely, Francisqno
Haicey. Knowing himself to bo nmoug
friends, ho talked freely. For half n
contnry Hourly our great critic ban held
tho lien, nt first timidly, and new iio
wlolds it with unquestioned authority.
I.iko most Parisian ecltbritics, ho xvaj
born in tho province:, at Dounltui,
wliero his fntlur kept n rchool after Iho
fall of tho llrst Napoleon dissolved tho
army in which tho elder Sarcoy had In
sisted on enlisting in spito of his excess
ivo uenrslghteduei-'s, transmitted to bin
son. There Sarcey's parents toiled xvith
varying fortunes, niultlirnco Frnncisqno
took Ida flight for Paris and walked
(Irmly in thu footprints ot tho lato Jules
lanin, who nlso devoted his iifo to
dramntio criticism. Iio makes an Idol of
tho drnina. Ho lives for Ids work. Ho re
spectfully considers dramntio criticism
an art ami not it trade, nnd perhaps for
that reason is tho greatest critical au
thority lu France.
Ho told us of his duel with Hector
Pcssnrd, tho musical critic and comic
opera compos cr, xvho is a very charming
man, by tho way. Sarcoy, in 1UC5,
wroto n scathing attack on Girnrilln's
paper, I.a Libert a Enillo do Oirnrdin
objected on priuciplo to ducl.i, so tho
editorial staff, considering their literary
stylo insulted by Snrccy, drew lots as to
who would call him oat and kill htm if
possible. Tho lot fell on Pissurd. Noxv,
Pcssard and Saray xvcro great friends,
but it xvas necessary to oboy tho call of
honor, so Pcssard scut tho challenge,
which Sarcey accepted xvlth diguity.
Tho advcisarics took otf their coats and
vests and faced each other, swords in
hand, when, lot tho fonr. seconds took to
Fqunbbling ovir coniu detail. The dis
pute xvas long aud ferocious, nnd tlm
two adversaries loll into ccuvcisatiou,
sword in hand.
Quoth Pcssard I am fiozen. Would
yon ir.lnrt if I pnt on my coat?
Sarcey A good idea. Wo can kill
each other later.
Pcssard Let mo tell you, my dear
Sarcoy, how greatly I admiro your tal
ent Sarcey I can my tho sauio to you,
but why aro xvo going to kill each other?
Pcssard I dou't qnjto know. It
seems you grossly insulted me, and if I
