THE MAY-BENNETT DU 7L.
An Authentio Account of the Affair by
The New York !'ines publishes
what purports to be a correct
account of the duel which occurred
in January, 1877, between James
Gordon Bennett and Mr. May.
The story is told by Mr. George
Wilkes, who heard it from Dr.
Phelps, who was present on the
occasion. Mr. Wilkes tells the
facts, he says, in justice to Mr.
Be.nett, with. it is intimated, the
tacit permission of Dr. Phelps.
According to this version Mr.
Bennett used a pistol, brought by
Mr. May, which had a very sti
trigger, whereas Mr. May used one
of Mr. Bennett's pistols, which had
a hair trigger most delicately bal
anced. The duel is described as
"The party took their places, and
the word was given to fire. The
direction was to fire at the word
'fire,' and not after the word
"Almost instantly upon the word
Mr. May fired. 'One, two, three 1"
followed, and Mr. Bennett, who
pulled at his trigger, and evidently
with the best will in the world, did
not succeed in getting his weapon
off. He was baffled by the hard
ness, or rather the stiffness, of the
"It was an exciting moment. No
one who looked at his eye as it
bore straight across the angry
wound which his opponent had
inflicted upon his face a few days
before (while his arms were en
tangled in his coat) could doubt for
a moment what he then meant to
do ; but the ineffective pistol ex
hausted the 'one, two, three,' by its
reluctance and dropped harmlessly
by his sido.
'His second at once interposed
and claimed that ns Mr. Bennett
had suffered his risk and disadvant
ago through no fault of his own, he
was entitled to a return shot at Mr.
".he claim, being according to
rule, was of course allowed, and Mr.
May took his place, emp)ty handed,
before Mr. Bennett's pistol. Tho
fatal disk of the avenging weapon
covered him as the merciless word
was given, but the,. face of Mr
Bennett changed as ho saw his
opponent at his mercy, and before
the signal wvords wvere counted out
he had forgiven him and fired in
"This terminated the proceed
ings; and as the party left the
ground1, Mr. Bennett, who during
the whole affair had acted on his
judgment, said to the surgeon:
W~ell, doctor, do you think I did
"I should have been very sorry
* to have killcd any man who wvas at
my mercy,' was the answer of the
doctor ; 'but,' glancing at the
shining fresh scar across Mr. Ben
nett's nose-a scar he wears to this
day, and will carry to his grave-lie
P ~ added, 'but with such a pistol-hand
as yours 1 should have been terribly
tempted to wing him.
" 'At any rate,' said Mr. Wilkes,
'his conduct was generous, and his
opponents should have been glad to
take any responsibility of prosecu
6 tion (if that 'is what governed them)
to save him from being defamed
and branded as a coward. The gift
S, of a life was worth certainly as
mutch as that.'"
The voice of reform is heard
through the land, and speaks of the
"good time coming." So too the
spirit of the reform is working in
the nurseries of the land to banish
~those dangerous Opium and Morphia
preparations, and. establish useful
and harmless remodies, of which

TOTAL ABSTINENCE SAVING WINE TIL If
There is a curious story about some native
wines which are extensively advertised nowa
days, and have only recently been put upon
the market. Dr. Underhill, the well-known
grape-grower of Croton Point, died in 187t.
'ome of his heirs entertained temperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwilling to allow the stock of wines then on
hand to be sold or any more to be made.
The grapes have sometimes been sent to
market, and sometimes left to decay upon
the vines. It Is only now that the other heirs
have succeeded in arranging for a settlement
of the estate and the -sale of the wines on
hand. Among these is a wine of the vintage
of 1864, described as a "Sweet Union Port,"
but suggesting the Imperial Tokay more
tha av~yn oter Eulroenwine,f and being
growth. Its-purity, age and mellowness are
remarkable, and both physicians and wine-.
fanciers have a special interest in it as the
oldest native wvine now aceessible in nny con'
siderable quantity. The whole stock Is ln'the
hands of the well-knowvn wholesale grocery
house of the Thurbers.-N. V. Tribun.,
Nov. 19, 1577.
The above speaks for itself, bat we would
add that this is the pture juice of the grape,
neither drugged, liquored nor wvatered ; that it
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for medicinal or sacramental purposes It is
unsurpassed. Yt can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists throughout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
undersigned, who will forward descriptive
pamphlet, free of charge, on application,
