Mark Twain's Duel.
Murk Twain con tributes the follow
ing to" Tom Hood's annual:
The ouly merit I ehum for the fol
lowing narrative is that it is a true
story. It bus a moral on the cud of it,
but I claim nothi ng on that, as it io
merely thrown in 10 curry favor with
the religious clement.
After I hail reported a couple of
years on the Virginia Uity (Nevada)
Daily Enterprise they promoted mo to
be editor-in-chief; ami 1 lasted just a
week by the watch. 13tit 1 made an
uncommonly lively newspaper while
I did last, and when I retired I had a
duel on my bauds and three horse
whippings promised me.
The latter I made no a! tempt to
collect; however, this history concerns
only the former. It was the old
"(lush times" of the silver excitement,
when the population was wonderfully
wild and mixed; everybody Wehl
armed to the. teeth, and all slights and
insults had to bo atoned for with the
best article of blood your system could
furnish. In the courseI of my editing
I made' trouble with a Mr; Loid, the
editor of a rival paper. He flew lip
about some little trifle or other that I
said about him?1 d<> not remember
! now what it was. 1 suppose 1 culled
him a thief, or a body-snutehcr, or an
idot, or something like that; 1 was
obliged to make tin; paper readable,
and I couldn't fail in my duty to a
whole Community of subscribers mere
ly lu save the exaggerated sensitiveness
of an individual. Mr. Lord was
oliended, and replied vigorously in his
paper. Vigorously means a great
deal when it refers to a personal edi
torial in a front tor newspaper. Duel
ing was all the fashion among the
upper classes its that country, anil a
very few gentlemen vyoul I throw away
an opportunity of lighting one. To
kill one man in t> duel caused a man
lo ho even more looked up to I ban to,
kill two men in the ordinary way
Will, out there if you abuse a man
and that man did not like li; you .had
lo call him out and kill him, other
wise -ypu'> ayotijtl bp disgraced. So 1
challenged .Mr. Lord, und I did hope
he would not accept; but I knew per
fectly well that he did not want to
light, ami so 1 challenged him in the
most vi -lint ami imp arable manner
And t Inn I sat clown und sou lied and
snuffed iili the answer came. All the
I hoys?-the editor.-?were in (he office
"helping" mo iii the dismal business,
and leliiii;! about duels and discussing
the code with' a lot. of aged ruf Hans,
who bad experience in such matters,
ami altogether there was a loving
interest taken in such matters that
made me unspeakably uncomfortable.
The answer came- r. Lord declin
ed. Our hoys were furious, and so
was I on the surface.
1 tent him another challenge, and
another, and the more he did not
waul to light the more blood-thirstier
I became. I>ut at last, the man's tone
began to change. He appeared to be
waking up. It was'becoming appar
ent that he was going to light me after
all. 1 ought to have known how it
would be?ho was a man who could
never he depended upon. Our boys
were jubilant. I was n t, though 1
tried hiird to bo.
It was now lime to go out. and prac
tice. It was the custom there to light
duels with navy six-shooters at fifteen
paces?load and empty till the game
for the funeral was secure. Wc went
lo a little ravine just out of town and
hot rowed a barn door for a target?
borrowed it fromngentleman who was
absent?and wc stood this barn door
up, ami .stood it mil on one cud
against thu middle of it to represent
Lord, and put a squash mi top of the
rail to represent bis bead, lie was
a very lull, lean creature, the poorest
sort, of material for a ?Ittel; nothing
but a line shot could letch him, au.t
even then he might sp?l your bullet.
Exaggeration aside, the rail was,of
course, a little too thin to represent
the body accurately, but the squash
was all right. If I hero was any iii
tellcetual difference between * the
squash and his head, it was in favor
Well, I practiced and practiced at
the barn door and could not hit it;
and 1 practiced tit the rail and could
not hit that; und 1 tried for the squash
and could not hii that. 1 would have
been'entirely disheartened hut that
occasionally I crippled pno of the buys,
and that gave htc hope.
At h<st wo begun to hoar pistol
shots near by, in the next ravine. Wc
knew what that meant! The other
party was out practicing loo. Thon I
wiis in the least degree distressed, for
of course they would hear our shots
and then send over the ridge, and the
spies would find my bam door with
out a wound or murk, and that would
simply bo an end to mo; for of course
the other man would immediately he
1 conic as blood-thirsty nsl was.
Just r.t this moment a little bird
not larger than a sparrow flew by and
lit on a bush, about thirty paces away,
nnd my little second, Steve Gilta, who
was a dead shot with a pistol?much
better than I wns?snatched out his
revolver and shut the bird's head off!
We all ran to pick up the game, nnd
sure enough, just at ibis momentsomc
of the other duelistscame roconnoitcr
ing over the little ridge. They ran
to our group to see what the matter
was, nnd when they saw the bird,
Lord's second said :
"That was a splendid shot. How
far oil'was it ?"
Steve said, with some indifl'erence :
"Qh, no great distance. About
"Thirty paces! Heavens alive!
Who did it?"
"The mischief ho did ! Can ho do
it often ?"
"Well, yes. ITc can do it about
four times out of five."
I kn w the little rascal was lying,
but 1 never said anything. I never
told him so. lie was not of a disposi
tion to invite confidence of that kind,
so 1 let the matter rest. But it was a
comfort to see. those people look sick,
and sec their jaws drop when Sieve
made that statement. They went oil'
and got Lord and took him home;
when we got home, half an hour later,
there was a note, saying that Mr.
Lord peremptorily declined to fight.
We f i?ud out afterward that Lord
hit his mark thirteen times iu eighteen
shots?if he had put those thirteen
Indicts into mc it would have narrow
ed my sphere of usefulness a good
deal. True, they could have put
pegs in the holes add used mc lor a
hat rack; but what is a hat rack to n
man who feels he has intellectual
I have written this true incident of
my history for one purpose only?to
ivarn the youth ol to-day against the
practice of dueling, and to plead with
them to war against it. I was young
and foolish when I challenged the
gentleman, und thought it very fine
and grand to be a duelist and stand
upon the "field of honor." But I am
older and more experienced now, and
am* inflexibly opposed to tha dreadful
cu-tnm. I am gbid, indeed, to be
enabled to lift, up my voice against it.
I think it is a bad, immoral thing. It
is every mail's duty to do all he can
to discourage dueling.
If a man were to challenge mo, I
would go to that hum and lake him
by tin- hand and lead him to a retired
room ? ami kill him.

beautiful young w ?man on one of our
