How a. Tiny Bird Made Mark's Or
poneut Decline an Kncvaolrr.
Mark Twain in an Installment of his
autobiography in the North American
Review for December gives his experi
ences as a duelist In his early journal
istic days in Nevada. He describes
the preparations made for a duel be
tween him and a Mr. Laird, proprietor
of the Virginia Union, as follows:
"The boys were jubilant beyond ex
pression. They helped me make my
will. Then they took me home. I
didn't sleep any didn't want to sleep.
I had plenty of things to think about
and less than four hours to do it in,
because 5 o'clock was the hour ap
pointed for the tragedy, and I should
have to use up one hour beginning at
4 in practicing with the revolver and
finding out which end of it to level at
the adversary. At 4 we went down
Into a little gorge about a mile from
town and borrowed a barn door for a
mark borrowed it of a man who was
over In California on a visit and we
set the barn door up and stood a fence
rail up against the middle of it to rep
resent Mr. Laird. But the rail was no
proper representative of him, for he
was longer than a rail and thinner.
Nothing would ever fetch him but a
line shot, and then a like as not he
would split the bullet the worst ma
terial for dueling purposes that could
be imagined. I began on the rail. I
conldn't hit the rail. Then I tried the
barn door, but I couldn't hit the barn
door. There was nobody in danger ex
cept stragglers around on the flanks of
that mark. I was thoroughly discour
aged, and I didn't cheer up any when
we presently heard pistol shots over In
the next little ravine. I knew what
that was that was Laird's gang out
practicing him. They would hear my
shots, and of course they would come
up over the ridge to see what kind of
a record I was making see what their
chances were against me. Well. I
hadn't any record, and I knew that If
Laird came over that ridge and saw
my barn door without a scratch on It
he would be as anxious to fight as I
was, or as I had been at midnight be
fore that disastrous acceptance came.
"Now, just at this moment a little
bird no bigger than a sparrow flew
along by and lit on a sage bush about
thirty yards away. Steve Gillis whip
ped out his revolver and shot its head
off. Oh. lie was a marksman -much
better than I was! We ran down
there to pick up the bird, and Just then,
sure enough. Mr. Laird and Ids people
came over the ride. and they joined
us. And when Laird's second saw that
bird with its head shot off he lost
color, he faded, and you could see that
he was interested. He said:
" 'Who did that?"
"Before I could answer, Steve spoke
up and said quite calmly and In a mat
ter of fact way:
"Clemens did It.'
"The second said: 'Why, that Is won
derful. How far off was that bird?'
"Steve said. 'Oh, not far about thir

tonishing shooting, now often can he
Steve said languidly, 'Oh, about
four times out of five!'
I knew the little rascal was lying.
but I didn't say anything. The second
said: Why, that Is amazing shooting.
I supposed boVouldn't hit a church.'
"He was supposing very sagaciously.
but I didn't say anything. Well, they
said 'Good morning.' The second took
Mr. Laird home, a little tottery on his
legs, and Laird sent back a note in his
own hand declining to fight n duel
with me on any terms whatever."

Rock Island has secured the ser
vices of a manager for its ball team
to take the place of Jack McConnell,
recently released to Terre Haute, in
the person of John Tighe of the Nor
wich team of the Connecticut league,
with whom President Spencer of the
local association has been correspond
ing for some time. The negotiations
were completed by Mr. Spencer up to
the point of receiving the formal sig
nature of the player. When M. H.
Sexton departed for New York Sun
day he agreed to see Tighe and secure
his signature. This Mr. Sexton has
succeeded in accomplishing, as indi
cated by telegrams received this after
noon by President Spencer and by The
Argus. In his wire to The Argus Mr
Sexton says: "Tighe has a splendid
reputation in the Connecticut league,
and is a fine looking fellow."
Won Two I'ennnntM.
Tighe. who is a first baseman, has
been with the Norwich team for five
years, being captain of the team in
1903, when it won the Connecticut
league pennant, and during the past
season was manager, when with an en
tirely new team, he again landed the
flag. A well known baseball authority
in writing to President Spencer of
Tighe some weeks ago said. "I believe
him to be a good manager, if it is fo be
predicted on results. He has the fa
culty of getting telling work out of his
men as is evidenced by his work in
190G. He is a splendid batter and
baseman. If I wanted a manager, I
would be glad to secure such a man."
WnnlM to Comp t.
The only reason for Tighe leaving
Norwich is his desire to come west.
His entire baseball career has been
cast in the east and like many another
good player, wanted a change. .The
Norwich Baseball association, felt that
inasmuch as he had rendered it long
and faithful service, his wishes should
be acceded to, although it parted with
him with regret.
Kine AtlvnufUKe to Tram Work.
With a playing manager on first base

s believed will be exceptionally for

Tighe may bring with him or see fit to
add. the Islanders should make th
best record in their career during the
season of 1907.
jn its docket for consideration, the
board of arbitration of the National
Association of Professional Baseball
leagues, which governs the affairs of
the minor circuits, began its session
here a day in advance of the scheduled
The first case disposed of was the
appeal of the Uniontown club of the
Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Maryland
league from, a -decision by President
Guy. which made, a tie for the league
pennant. The.; appeal was sustained
and the pennant awarded to the Union
town team. .
The application of the Texas leagua
for advancement from class C to class
B was denied, but the amalgamation
of that circuit with the Southern Tex
as league was sanctioned.
Lonx Life to tlie Ment
When we recrossed the Bosporus we
bade farewell to Asia, within whose
borders we had spent about seven
months. They have been wonderfully
Instructive months, and we have en
Joyed the experiences through which
we have passed, but we cannot shy
that we have fallen in love with Asi
atic food. We have been afraid of the
raw vegetables; we have distrusted the
water unless it was boiled, and we
have sometimes been skeptical about
the meat. The butter has not always
looked Invitiuff, and our fondness for
cream has not been increased by the
sight of the g3ats driven from dwor to
door and milked in the presence of the
purchaser. The bread was not a rival
for the Vienna brand, and the cooking
has not been up to western standards.
But the hen long life to her! She has
been our constant friend. When all
else failed we could fall back upon the
boiled egg with a sense of security and
a feeling of satisfaction. If I am not
henceforth a poultry fancier in the
technical sense of the term I shall re
turn with an increased respect for the
common, ' everyday barn yard fowl.
There are many differences between
the east and the west differences in
race characteristics," uluerences m cos
tume, differences in Ideals of life, of
government and of religion but we all
meet at the breakfast table. The egg,
