In no country has dueling enjoyed so
healthy a itality as in Ireland. For a con
siderable period of its history the (ireen
Isle was the happy hunting ground of
'satisfnrticu." Trie men and women of
the last cei tury and t he earlier iiart of the
prvcnt flung themselves into the exciting
pasting wi h a generous enthusiasm. It
was part o.' the curriculum of education,
and no young gentleman's education was
considered eomplete until he had fought a
duel. Indeed, at onetime a club existed
in Galwny to which no person was admit
ted who hail not shot his man.
In those days every respectable familv
had among their heirlooms the hereditary
pistols the preservators and vindicators
of the fami y honor. These were tenderly
regarded an 1 kept scrupulously clean anil
oiled, for no man knew the moment when
they would 1 required. The handles were
mysteriously notched, and on each notch
hung a tale perhaps a catastrophe. At

indicating tl at it had sent a bullet into an

A Terrilde View of Marriage.
The foundation of tbe confidence which
impels the masses of young Americans to
take n pon t henselves the responsibilities of
matrimony is, after all, the firmly fixed
customed gi.-ing wedding presents. Tbe
question ma offer no difficulties to the
wealthy; they leave an order with some
great jewelry bouse, and have it charged
up and then go to tbe wedding. It is.
However, upon the unmarried voune man
of tolerably w ide acquaintance, whose in
come exceeds his livingexpenses by a small
margin, whicl he fain would save," but who
does not feel t lat he can afford to get mr.r
ried, that the custom bears with peculiar
severity. For him nature, lovely in May
and splendid in October, has no charms:
for May and O-tober are to him but syno
nyms for weddings galore, each with its
obligation of gift.
The difficulty of selecting something
w hich is not likely to l duplicated half a
dozen times over is known to everybody:
but it is not o le-tenth so formidable as is
the production of the dollars necessary to
buy that somet mug. There seems to be
good ground f r the theory that wedding
presents play a weightier part than love in
the making of marriages, the majority of
young men having spent so much in these
gifts that they determine upon marriage
in retaliation, anil tbe rest, discouraged by
tbe periodical and alarming drain upon
their purses, become misanthropic Hnd

Were fastened at the back with wire as

Here is one inci lent in the life of the eld

his old age nnd adverse to exercise, his
physician advised him to ride on horse
back. He consented to do so. Accordingly,
a large, lofty trotter was led to the door
and the venerable ex-president mounted.
He rode down tie avenue to the street at
a smart trot, theu wheeled nnd returned.
Being asked if he did not intend to ride
any further, he reiliexi:
