A FAMOUS FIGHT.
-A Story of the Early Day3 In
Ko man in Leadville in the early
mining' days enjoyed a more deserved
popularity thin little Bob Brierly. lie
was a bright fellow, genial and so
ciablein his disposition, warm in his at
tachments and courteous and obliging
to everybody. Nothing was known of
his antecedents except that he had been
driven west by domestic difficulties,
had settled down in r, Leadville, opened
a law office, and had rapidly acquired
about all the practice that was afloat
in those day's. JJank Mclaughlin
lived in an adjoining camp, where lie
enjoyed the reputation of a desperado,
and was a frequent visitorat Leadville
lie was a big, savage fellow, the very
opposite of -Bob Brierly, who was be
low the medium ize, delicate and gen
tlemanly. From the first the two
seemed to hate each other. There was
a natural antipathy between theui.
Instinct taught each to see in the other
A deadly and dangerous enemy.
One day ilcLaughlin struck the little
mining town in an ugly humor and
proceeded'to make himself very numer
ous, and people knew before he had
been there two hours that trouble was
brewing between him and Brierly.
They had met up the country some
time before the discovery of rich silver
rock in the Leadville district and came
very near having a difficulty then. The
fact appeared to be that McLaughlin,
who was anxious to be thought a
fighter, was insanely jealous of Brier
ly's well-established reputation in that
respect. The first night of his advent
into camp he got on a jamboree, flour
ished his revolver and swore that no
man who wore a "biled" shirt and a
"plug" hat could make him take
water. As Bob was the only one in
town who sported such evidences of
civilization as a white shirt and a high
Bilk hat, of course all knew that Hank
meant him. But Bob only smiled on
the riotous demonstrations of the big
rough, and quietly walked off and
went to bed. From that hour, however,
the town felt that something serious
was going to happen. Strangely
enough, in a place where shooting
scrapes were of daily occurrence, Lead
ville got excited all over at the pros
pect of a quarrel between Bob Brierly
and Hank McLaughlin. The death
dealing merits of the men were dis
cussed freely, and money was wagered
on the final results. Notwithstanding
McLaughlin's size and bloodthirsty
talk, Brierly was the popular favorite.
The little fellow had won his spurs in
many a hard-fought scrimmage, and
many of the miners were ready to bet
that he would kill his opponent or
drive him out of camp.
Leadville had among its cosmopoli
tan population in those days quite a
sprinkling of men who believed that
the right way for gentlemen to settle
their difficulties was according to the
code. Street fights and barroom en
counters were well enough in their
way, but the proper tiling was a duel
according to the code of honor. Lead
ville bore testimony to the handiwork
of these gentlemen in this respect.
Time and again had her high-toned
and pugnacious citizens, actuated by
the true spirit of chivalr-, gone out and
shot each other in the most approved
fashion. Why not arrange a regular
affair between McLaughlin and Brier
ly? With Bob there was no trouble,
and he at once cheerfully acquiesced
in the proposal of his friends to nvoid
the vulgar barbarity of a street affray
or a saloon encounter.
McLaughlin, however, did not take
the thing kindly, so it was said, and
gave his officious interviewers such a
6tormy reception as came near start
ing a riot in the camp, For this rea
son, to the sincere regret of not a few,
the proposed duel had to be abandoned,
and the town was left in a feverish
condition of expectation, impatiently
waiting for the fray. Fortunately,
they had not long to wait. A difficulty
among some miners led to a lawsuit
before Judge Stead, a judicial autocrat
of the place, and Bob Brierly appeared
as attorney for one of the parties.
Ilappily, oc- unhappily, as the fact
might be viewed from different stand
points, Hank McLaughlin was a wit
ness against the side represented by
Brierly, and when this condition of
affairs became generally known it was
in the air that the time had come for
one or both to pass in his checks, as
the sports phrased it.
When the belligerent witness took
the stand all eye3 were turned on hSta.
With an angry glance at Brierly and a
suggestive hitch at his hip pocket,
where the handle of a big six-shooter
could be plainly seen, he proceeded
with his testimony and for a time got
along smoothly enough. The cross ex
amination, however, was too much for
the witness. Repeatedly he was
admonished by the justice to answer
the questions and avoid insulting per
sonalities. Still he was ugly, cross
and abusive and indulged in a vicious
sneer when Brierly quietly remarked
that nothing he might say could make
him forget he was in a court of justice.
At last, losing all patience and find
ing restraint next to impossible.
Briefly insisted that the court should
take a recess. Immediately on ad
journment, the crowd poured into "The
Carbonate," directly across the street,
and filled the saloon to its utmost
While the long line of thirsty souls
were standing at the bar drinking or
waiting to be served, a cry of "look
out" was heard, and instantly the
sharp and loud reports of two revol
vers scattered the crowd in all direc
tions. Who drew first none could say,
but the little one evidently got in the
first shot, for McLaughlin was seen to
stagger and put his hand to his breast.
He did not flinch, however, and both
men continued to fire with great
rapidity. At this critical juncture
something was noticed to be wrong
with Brierly's pistol. It would not re
volve, and in working with it the
chamber dropped out and rolled on the
floor. Again McLaughlin's pistol rang
out, and a bullet hole through his an
tagonist's hat showed that the effect of
the first shot had not destroyed his
aim, although he staggered around the
room like a drunken man. Coolly
stooping down, Brierly picked up the
chamber of his revolver, deliberately
replaced it and began firing again.
While fixing his weapon he had got
into a corner at one end of the bar or
counter and McLaughlin took a similar
position at the other end. The fire
now raked the counter from end to
end, to the danger and horror of a
number of spectators who had taken
refuge from the flying bullets behind
the bar at the beginning of the fight.
With the crack of the pistols was heard
the wild cry of some poor devil in the
line of fire. The shriek and fall of one
of the number, a quiet, inoffensive
German, who had nothing to do with
the affray, put a n. end to the bloody
business. The proprietor of the Car
bonate, now a well-known citizen of
Denver, Jumped across the counter and
seized Brierly with an iron grasp,
while others caught McLaughlin and
wrenched the revolver from his hands.
The result of the shooting was tho
death of the unfortunate German, shot
through the heart, the fearful wound
ing of McLaughlin, who V?us sinking
fast from a serious flesh wound in the
breast, and a sligiit flesh wound re
ceived by Brierly.
The barroom duel over, Leadville re
sumed its normal condition. The fight
was eminently satisfactory. Both men
were game, but the little one had come
out on top. Brierly was well known
throughout the sage-brush country,
lie was a prime favorite with every
body, and no bigger heart ever beat in
a little body. On more than one occa
sion he had talked over his turbulent
life and the exciting scenes in which
he had been an actor. No mention had
ever been made of his early life, but a
tiny miniature of a fair-haired, blue-
eyed maiden, which he always carried
next his heart, might have told its sad
story of love and sorrow, hope and de
spair. Few men ever knew how
thoroughly Brierly despised, in his lat
ter years, the reputation of a fighting
Such a reputation, he would bitterly
remark, is a curse to anyone. Every
reckless fool who wanted to get his
name up as a desperado thinks he is
in duty bound to have a difficulty with
you, while you are expected to resent
every grievance, real or imaginary,
with the knife or pistol. "If I had to
live my life over again, nothing short
of absolute dishonor would make me
light anybody." His reflections on tho
past were evidently not of a pleasant
character, and there can be no doubt
that he deeply and sincerely regretted
many events in his reckless career. It
was singular how so quiet and gen
tlemanly a little fellow could pet into
so many ugly scrapes. His early griefs
weighed upon his mind, and like many
another gallant fellow he sought for
getfulncss in strong drink. Doubtless
this had much to do with his numerous
deadly quarrels, for few men were
more quiet and inoffensive when sober.
Poor Brierly! With him life's fitful
fever is over, and he sleeps beneath the
pinon bushes, on the carbonate hills,
his secret buried with him. Peace to
his ashes! Washington Post.
FLOGGING IN RUSSIA.
Its Abolition Refers to the Vn of the
l'let, and Not the Knout.
The St. Petersburg dispatch to the
effect that an imperial edict had been
issued abolishing the flogging of crimi
nals apparently refers to the use of the
plet or pleti and not to the knout, as
was first supposed. Punishment with
the knout, or more correctly the knut,
was abolished by Emperor Nicholas I.
more than forty years ago. The lash
of the knout was composed of broad
leather thongs, prepared to a metallic
hardness, and often intertwined with
A sentence of from one hundred to two
hundred blows was considered equiva
lent to death. When the knout was
done away with, the plet, a simple lash,
was substituted for it. This was con
sidered a much milder form of punish
ment, but the prison officials found
ways of increasing its efficacy, and
George Kennan, in his recent book on
Siberia, says that he was informed by
Russian officers that death might be
caused by a hundred blows of the plet.
Flogging has always been a favorite
mode of Russian expression of dissatis
faction. An invariable wedding gift
from the friends of the bride to the
groom is a rawhide, and one of the first
duties of the newly-wed Russian peas
ant if he wishes to retain his self-respect
is to beat his wife. The story is
told of a German resident of Russia
who married a native wife. All went
joyously for three weeks. One day the
husband found his wife in tears.
"You do not love me," was the best
information he could get. In vain he
protested and caressed her.
Day after day saw the same weeping,
protesting condition. At last the wife,
in a burst of despair, made the full
charge: "You do not love mo, else you
would beat me as other men beat their
The woman's doubts were set at rest
and by judicious clubbings the German
was enabled to live hapjvly and onre
criminatingly ever afterward.

REVIVAL OF STARCH.
Lawns and Muslins Will Re Laundered la
the Old Way.
The recent fashions which bring
back to use the old-fashioned lawns,
dimities and organdy muslins in which
our grandmothers delighted have final
ly brought back the starched white
petticoat of years ago. The flaring
skirts of the present time demand
starched petticoats. The laundresses
of to-day have almost forgotten the art
of the clear-stretcher, so little starch
has been used. The chief use of starch
has been in men's laundry work. The
laundresses of to-day must learn again
if they have forgotton the starching of
muslins, lawns and other goods, so they
will not "rattle," but will hold out
in clear, crisp folds. The secret of
making a starch that will hold with
out a paper-like rattle at the least
movement of the wearer depends to
some extent on the cloth. Sheer mus
lins do not give much trouble in this
way, starched with fine starch. There
fore it is better to make new white
skirts of Victoria lawn, a suitable
quality of which may be purchased for
twelve and a half cents a yard. This
lawn is heavy, yet sheer, and wears
well. The glue starches are more suc
cessful than anything else in giving
the necessary stiffness to sheer dimi
ties and organdies, without the unde
sirable rattle. This starch is made of
proper consistenccy by simply melting
a tablespoonful of common white glue
in boiling water, and thinning it grad
ually by adding half a gallon of water,
quart by quart, and testing it by
starching a sample in it until proper
consistency is reached. Gum-arabic
starch is used in the same way. N. Y.
Sleeves Still Growing
Sleeves have grown rather than di
minished in size, but they are so often
pressed down by epaulets or shoulder
frills of various kinds, or caught down
on top with rosettes, or bands of Jet in
butterfly fashion, that the extra ful
ness is not so noticeable. The mutton
leg shape is still the favorite sleeve,
and it is usually finished at the wrist
Kith a narrow turn-over cuff, which is
often supplemented by another of
white batiste, edged with narrow
Valenciennes lace; or the sleeve is some
times trimmed with folds of silk or lace
insertion put on in rows the entire
length, from arm hole to wrist. There
is a hint of an old-time flowing sleeve
in a model which flares a little at the
wrist, displaying a dainty under-sleeve

THE CARRIER PIGEON.
Rendered Valuable by Xtu RemarkabU
Love for Home.
The illustration given below is re
produced from the French of Ad. Ben
ion. It shows a carrier pigeon en route
with a message. The letter in this
case appears to be fastened to its legs.
The carrier pigeon is a bird larger
generally than the common pigeon,
measuring about fifteen inches in
length and weighing about one and
one-fourth pounds. The neck is long
and the pectoral muscle very large.
An appendage of naked skin hangs
across its bill and continues down on
either side of the lower mandible.
The great development of this muscle
is what gives the bird the power of
long continued flight.
The quality that renders these birds
so valuable as messengers is their love
for home, which seems abnormally
developed. The art of training them
is carried to perfection in Turkey,
where the procedure is about as fol
lows: A number of very young birds
are taken to a distance of one-half mile
fjoirt hei home and freed. The most
intelligent will quickly find their way
to their homes. Those that get lost
are regarded as stupid and Ire re
jected. The ones that return home are
then taken to greater distances, first
only two or three miles from the domi-

cile, but afterwards to hundreds and
even a thousand miles. Thus taught,
they become expert in returning to
their owners, and do this from all parts
of the country.
As to their rapidity of flight there is
much dispute. The more conservative
say that the usual speed is about 30
miles per hour. Some, however, be
lieve it possible for these birds to fly
from 50 to 90 miles per hour in rare in
stances. It takes alxmt 13 hours foi
a carrier pigeon to digest a crop full oi
grain. Passenger pigeons have been
shot in New York with their crops full
of rice, which they could not have ob
tained nearer than the Carolina rice
fields. They must have traveled 300 or
400 miles in six hours, or over 50 miles
In England pigeons have been re
peatedly used in wagers, bets being
made on the full speed of the birds. In
such cases a greater speed than 36
miles per hour has rarely been made.
In 1H33 a great trial of pigeons was
made at Ghent. On June 24, of that
year, 24 birds that had been entered
for the prize were thrown up at Rouen,
about 150 miles from Ghent. The first
pigeon arrived in Ghent in one and
one-half hours; 10 came in within two
and one-half hours, and three in the
course of the day; four were lost. The
first pigeon must have traveled at a
rate of nearly 100 miles an hour, which
seems incredible. Yet it is possible,
seeing "that lfi others also obtained a
speed of over CO miles per hour.
It is hard to believe that carrier
pigeons are not governed by instinct,
yet men that handle them say that it is
merely a matter of education. If the
bird cannot recognize some landmark
he gets lost. Also birds thrown np dur
ing a fog or haze seldom reach their
destination. There are, however, some
rare instances extant that seem to
prove that birds can succeed irrespec
tive of the educational principle.
BROAD TIRE WAGONS.
Ther Is No Reason Why They Should
Not He L'Aed Every where.
While the subject of good roads is
being agitated in every part of the
country those most interested in the
subject are doing their best to make
bad roads still worse by using narrow
tires on their wagons. Heavy loads are
drawn over our mud roads on these
narrow-tired wagons and deep ruts cut
into them, that in wet weather make
them almost and sometimes entirely,
impassable. I have a sort of a pity for
a man who urges his team along a
muddy road, all the time grumbling
about the badness of it, when he might
reduce the labor of his team from one
third to one-half by using wide tires at
very little additional cost to himself
and to the great saving of team and
temper. It is to be hoped that the
first legislation looking to the improve
ment of the roads of the country will
be in the way of encouraging the use
of wide tires, for one narrow-tired
wagon will do more damage than a
dozen with wide tires if the roads are
at all soft. No one disputes the philos
ophy of wide tires, and no one seems to
have any good reason to offer why
they should not bs used. Our farmers
simply follow precedent and go on us
ing narrow tires because their fathers
did before them. Lumbermen and
freighters use wide tires almost uni
versally and save money by doing so,
but it seems that farmers do not care
to economize in this direction. The
condition of our roads costs us more
than any other single item of waste in
this country, and the common use of
wide tires would reduce this waste of
energy to a large extent. Americar
