SURE DEATH FOR BOTH.
Display of Remarkable Nerve By a Tea
derfoot In Issuing a Challenge.
"I once saw a challenge to a duel issued
and accepted and the time, place and
weapons named. The affair, however, did
not come to any issue."
The speaker was Dan Qiiinn, the well
known writer of wild and woolly western
character and dialect stories.
"It was in Dead wood," said he, "about
eight years ago, and the two men who
were to have been the participants had
been snarling at each other for many tlays.
One of them was a young, consumptive
looking fellow from somewhere east, and
of course was held in much contempt by
the old timers. In some indefinable way,
however, many of them seemed to have a
kind of respect for him, as on one or two
occasions he had given evidence that per
haps after all he was net to be laughed
at. He was, to these serniadmirers, ;in un
known quantity, and while they were all
anxious for some opportunity to present
Itself in which he would show what he
Was made of, yet not one of them cared to
furnish the looked for chance.
"The man who did the snarling was per
haps the only man in the select clique that
hung around the saloon where the quarrel
finally materialized who did not believe
that the tenderfoot had any nerve, and he
never missed an opportunity to intimate
as much. On the night in question the
two men had leen unusually spiteful, and
it was a cinch that t here would lie trouble
before the daylight broke in.
"Finally the old timer made a remark to
the other that there was no mistaking. It
meant business. The young fellow heard
it, and witjhout moving a hand announced
to the other that he had heard the remark
and that he had a proposition to make.
The crowd was in the right humor and the
boy was allowed to go on.
"He said that he was a tenderfoot. He
was aware of it, ho declared, and he felt
sorry, but he also said that if the other
would give him a fair show he would fight
him. Then he made what waa considered
a remarkable proposition. He asked his
antagonist to lay aside his gear, to make
no plays, but to issue him a challenge to
battle royal. He had. he said, conscien
tious scruples against leing the n'Kressor
in a quarrel, but he was perfectly willing
to do the square thing whi n the show
"Well, after much parley the big fellow
agreed to the deal and the challenge was
issued. The Ixiy nt once accepted it, named
gone as the weapons, the place the saloon
and the time riht then. Hut his condi
tion under which the duel was to be fought
was the remarkable part of it. He insisted
that he and his opponent should stand
face to face, with the toes of their right
boots touching. Their guns were to be in
their belts, and at the word they were to
draw and fire. There could be only one
result. It was a daring proposal, but
whether it was a bluff or not was never
known. The other crawfished and apolo
gised, and the outcome of it was that the
two men became partners. Hut nobody in
Dead wood ever intimated again that the
young fellow was lacking in nerve. He
showed that be had something about him."
Chicago Inter Ocean.
Australian station hospitality keeps the
latchstring always out and says, "Come
when you wish, do what you like, and
stay as long as you can." A writer says
that the Australian host places himself,
his family, and all that is his at t be serv
ice of the guest fishing tackle, breech
loaders, horses and servants. Such hospi
tality is rarely abused, though the writer
ment ions one exceptional ease, w here the
guest prolonged his visit until it wore out
his welcome. To one station came a vis
itor, whose original intention of staying a
month was reconsidered, and be remained
Six months passed, and he was still there.
He enjoyed himself hugely with horses,
dogs and gnns, developed an encouraging
appetite, and his host did not complain.
After about nine months the host's man
ner became less warm, and at the end of
the year he spoke no more to his guest.
The latter was not sensitive, but lingered
on fur the space of a second year, when he
departed and went, to visit somebody else.
During these two years he was never told
that he had staid long enough and would
do well to go away. Manchester (Eng
Tortoises That Made Good Katiiijj.
Ko provisions for ships were ever found
equal to the Galapagos tortoises, which
will remain in good condition for a year
without food or water. A supply of the
latter is carried by the animals in a bag,
which contains as much as two gallons
sometimes. They are very sagacious, and
when kept on deck can be taught to con
fine themselves to any space arranged for
their accommodation by whipping them
gently with a rope's end when they get out
of it. The meat is said to be liner than
that of green turtle.
Dampier, the explorer who visited the
islands in 1634, wrote that the flesh re
sembled a pullet's in flavor. ' The oil," he
says, "we kept in jars, and used it instead
of butter to eat with dumplings." llogers,
in 1707, wrote: "The eggs of the turtle are
as big as those of a goose, white, hard
shells and exactly round. Two men rode
on the back of one of the creatures, which
weighed 700 pounds, and it carried them
with ease." Host on Transcript.
Julia tVurd Howe und Her Grandpa.
With all his gravity. Grandfather Ward
had his gleams of fun occasionally. It is
told that Julia had a habit of dropping
off her slippers while at table. One day
her father felt a wandering shell of kid,
with no foot to keep it steady. He put
his own foot on it and moved it under his
chair, then said in his deep, grave voice,
"ily daughter, will you bring me my
seals, which i have left on the table in
my room?" And poor Julia, after a vain
and frantic hunting with both feet, was
forced to go, crimson cheeked, white
stockinged and slipperless, on the re
quired errand. She would never have
dreamed of asking for the shoe. Laura E.
