Souti Carolinin, i phiod Patieut,
Arrested in Wasiugton.
Washington, August 29.-Suffering
from typhoid fever, from which he
will not recover,, and nursed by his
girl-bride of ten days, Builer Grinis
ley, 25 years old, of Columbia, who,
the police allege, had married the girl
under the alias of Henry Timmons,
has been arrested here by Detective
Berman on a charge of bigamy.
The arrest was made Dn request of
Deputy Sheriff Simms J. Miller, of
New Brookland, S. C., who arrived in
Washington on a hunt for Grimsley,
When the arrest was made, Dr. Jas.
J. Kilroy, of 103 I street, Northwest,
who was attending the sick man, told
the police his patient was in no con
dition to accompany Deputy Sheriff
Miller to South Carolina, and if at
tempted, the trip would kill the man.
He said the patient was suffering from
a relapse of typhiod and that his con
dition was serious, his temperature
for the past two days having been 103
degrees. When this was made known
to the police, they hesitated and De
puty Sheriff Miller agreed to the pat
ient's transfer to the Washington Asy
lum hospital for treatment, where he
will be guarded. The physicians at
the hospital tonight said the man had
slight chances of recovery.
Sheriff Miller, accompanied by the
heart-broken young wife, left Wash
ington on a late train for New Brook
land. The officers will return the girl
to her parents. When Dectective Ber
man, accompanied by the deputy sher
iff, went to arrest Grimsley, it was
the first intimation, the bride told the
officers, that she was the wife of an
alleged bigamist a man who is said
to have a wife and one child in Co
lumbia. She sobbed piteously and
said she had been married to the
man on August 17 last. She had known
him only a short time under the name
of Henry Timmons, and as such had
married him. When told that the man
she had married had a wife and child
in Columbia, whom he is said to have
deserted, she readily consented to ac
company the South Carolina officer
Before her marriage to the man, the
young woman was Miss Ella Earhart,
a daughter of Joseph Earhart, of New
Brookland. She is only 18 years old,
prepossessing and well educated.
Grimsley is an electrican. He decided
to remain in Washington and follow
his vocation. He was not successful
in procuring a positon, and a few days
after starting on his honeymoon was
stricken with typhoid fever, from
which h~e has been suffering ever
since. . The ;;irl's mother received a
postal card from her daughter in this
city a few days ago, giving her ad
dress. It was due to the postal card
that the arrest followed.

DUELLING CENTRE OF PARIS.
Sword Encouters Which Take Place
Nowadays at tihe Great
Since the Ile de la Jatte of tragic
memory has been turned into a garden
where the children play, little mindful
of the scenes of bloodshed formerly
enacted there the Grande roue has been
the great centre of duelling in France.
"*Its history, however, is innocuous com
pared with that of the old duelling
ground of the island in the Seine.
One of the very last of the meetings
there had a fatal ending. The nature
of her husband's engagement was
kept secret from the wife of a duellist.
He brought her to a resturant near
by-she had innocently insisted on ac
companying him-and he left her and
the child on the pretext of a billiard
Smatch. He never saw them again, as
he fell, pierced to the heart in the
Duelling is a less serious business,
writes a Paris correspondent of the
Pall Mall Gazette, since these "af
faires d'honneur" were regulated at
the foot of the great rotatory which
plunges Parisians in midair. The pres
ent manager has witnessed some 250)
encounters, and( al save on1e or two
have had a serio-comic rather than a
grave aspect. One of the exceptions
was the celebrated battle between the
Vicomtte Marc de Pully and the Baroa
Itwa ae emendous setto. Vicomte
forrm haing been animputated as the r
re:sUlT of a shooing accident. Early p
in the engagement he was badly o
wounded in the ribs, the sword point v
of his adversary having deeply enter- t<
ed his body. But, though the blood fi
gushed, he continued to fight gamely c:
on. The umpire wrenched his sword a
from him by force. As a consequence c:
of his wound M. de Tully had to keep
his bed six months. t]
Four or five years ago there was an
other sensational case of spitting the R
enemy. The two men who faced one n
another were M. de Villette and M. de g
Malory. The latter was rather seri- s:
ously wounded. When M. Dubois, the g
famous"maitre d'arrnes," fought with 0
M. Damotte, the latter received a slash P
thirteen centimeters long in his leg as
a proof of the prowess of the profes- 0
The French law forbids duels, but
takes no steps to prevent them. Yet a
it is sometimes moved in spite of it- u
self. One of these occasions was when 0
M. de Villaz killed M. Pietri, a Cor
sican journalist. The latter had no
notion of the use of his arm, whereas t
the former was an exl.ert swordsman.
He was found by a Seine jury to be
guilty of voluntary uomicide and sen
tenced to three years imprisonment.
In other cases where men have been
killed-as. occurred a year or two ago
in a combat between two Rumanian
students-the courts have taken a len
lent view. e
The historic pitch is just at the base
of the Great Wheel, which was con
structed by an English firm named
Basset at the time of the great exhi
bition. A graveled strip bounded at
one end by a sapling and at the other
by two palms in tubs measures exactly
thirty metres, the regulation length
for a contest with words. The width
is two meters. When a duel takes
place, which occurs about 20 times a
year, the ground receives some sort 3
of preparation, the gravel being scrap
ed off and replaced by sand. The wits
of the boulevards declare 'at the,
Great Wheel pays its di%'Ey,d by s e
duels, charging 2 po.r..ds *a time. As l
a matter of fact ther? is ii-i taiiff at all. S
The only payment paid is a "pour
boire" to the men who prepare the
ground. The wheel's interest in tbp
affair is the advertisement it gains
from an encounter of the sort. a
Dueling is on the decrease, the man
ager tells me. Its present form is so
attenuated that it is ridiculous. Most
Frenchmen will admit it, but it is a
custom and has to be reprected, even .
by those who feel its absurdity. In
the vast majority of these morninge
engagements under shadow of the
huge machine the wound that brings
the fight to an end is a mere scratch.
on the wrist. This is partly due to the d
system of dueling in vogue, known as
the "methode Baudry." Its chief claima
is that it places the inferior performer
on a level with the expert.
Baudry, the inventor of this simple
"truc." is a reputed swordsman, but in
half an hour he will show you how to
disconcert the ablest antagonist. The
p)rinciple is to hold your sword out
straight and keep it there. By these
means you can, bar accidents, defy the
other to do his worst. He can hard-.
ly press the trio for fear of piercing
himself. Feints and counters are
rarely practised on the actual field;
movements are the simplest; thed
straight thrust is met by an almost
Military officers fight the fiercest;
they do not stop for the first scratch.
Again, their reasons for fighting are
generally of an intimate and private
character, which give impetus to the
sword arm. It is generally a case of .
"Cherchez la femme,' whereas the civ-e
ilian is often inspired by political mo
tives. Elections let loose the duelist.
Quarrels between politicians who
were rivals at the polls led to at least
a couple of encounters at the Great e
Wheel this year. Journalism and the a
Chamber provide the major part of the ~
scenes at this corner of the Champ de S
Mars, which appropriately near the
Ecole Militaire, is opposite the site of
the old Galerie des Machines, one of
the last of the vestiges of the exhibi- t:
tion of ten years ago.s
Socialists are by their principles a t
verse to the duel, but some havi re
course "tout de meme" to the arbi
trament of arms. Quite recently the
Deputy M. Messimy fought with a pen
man who had attacked him in print.
The notorious Sarrant and Pugliesci
Conti duel did not tak~e place here,
but On the outskirts of Paris. In this
case. the director of the combat was
M. Ciemenceau, M. Saarrant's chief at
that time at the ministry of the inte- ~
rior. The incident which led to the ~
spectacle of two middle aged gentle- ~
men in their shirt sleeves trying to
pierce one another occurred at the
Palais Bourmon itself.
No duel is complete without M. Rou
ed ovr mon~re affairs of4 the kind than
any one living. He is a journalist by
profession, but is an acknowledged au- 1:
thority on the etiquette of~ duels. i:
Some of these meetings have a thor
nogly thatrical equipment, with a
IWnmatograph, a big cro wd. a roped
ng, and The rs: hers are rigidly
rivate and linitod to principals, see
iids and director of the combat. Ad
enturous persons climb sometimes in
) the Wheel and view the assault
'om above ground. The last theatri
il fight was between M. Thomequex
nd M. T. de Pierrebourg. It was as
rowded as a prizefight.
There is something symbolical in
le fact that boxing contests take
lace on the other side of the Grande
oue from the duels. The English
tethod of settling disputes is gaining
round-at least as a pastime and a
port-in France. It looks as if the
ame of fisticuffs is treading hard up
ti the heels of the chevalieresque ap
eal to steel. At this Paris Wonder
tnd important glove fights take place

The Grand Roue, therefore, makes
double claim on sportsmen, as an
pholder of the new and the old meth
I of regulating disputes, of proving
'ho is the better man. Sword contests
nly take place at the Great Wheel;
ghts ~with pistols are celebrated at
ie Parc des Princes.
