EUFAULA, I. T., February 5.-Belle
Starr; the female terror of the Terri
tory, was killed last Sunday evening at
6 o'clock, at a place known as Taylor's
Farm, seven miles northeast of Brook.
Having eaten supper with Jack Rose,
an Indian, she left on horseback and
alone for home, a mile and a ihalf dis
tant. She was never again seen alive.
The South Canadian River was to have
been crossed by her, and the ferryman
at the river was waiting for her.
Just at twilight a riderless horse
came dashing down towards the river
and the ferryman knew the .horse was
the property of the notorious Belle
Starr. Thinking Belle had been
thrown, he retraced the horse's steps
for half a mile, where he found her
dead body lying in the mnd. A load
of buckshot had been emptied into her
breast, while a load of fine shot had
struck her head. She had evidently
been assasinated, for her pistol had not
been drawn from her belt. She would
have done dangerous work had she
been boldly faced. She left a daring

And the dew-drops kiss the drooping
When shadows 'cross the door-way fall,
And cast their gloem upon the wall;
When lost is silent reverie,
I wonder if she'll think of me?
When looking back upon the past,
Through iecollections fading fast,
Like thoughts of Erin o'er the sea,
In fancy's mirror she shall see
The friends with whom she used to be,

While seated in her cushion'd chair,
Reposing from her daily care,
Alone, while not a whisper'd werd
- Upon the soft, still air is heard;
When the Bible rests.upon her knee,
I wonder if she'll think of me?
When other light hands shall caress,
With tender stroke, each auburn
And when some favor'd heir of bliss
Those precious, rose-fringedlips shall
When heavenly joys in turn shall be,
I wonder if she'll think of me?
When clasp'd in some wild lover's arms

And promises, with solemn vow,
All worldly coraforts to allow,
If but his angel she will be,

When spring-time comes, and flowers
'And fil1 the air with sweet perfume;
When pansies raise their little heads,
And violets smile in verdant beds,.
Alas! I will be far away
Who then will claim her fair beau
And when thi flowers I loved so well,
She pins upon his proud lapel
The same that I have held so dear
And cherish'<d as a fond souvenir
Say, can she on another see
Mytreasures, and not think of me?
Ah! will she miss~me when I'm gone,
And teel forsaken, sad and lone?
Alas! too well the truth I fear,
My darling will but little,.care
Another lover she will find,
Since "out of sight is out of mind."
I heave a low and gentle sigh,
For the sad-rememnber'd days gone by,
When cupid's keen-edged silver dart,
First pierced my young and tender
Thus wreck'd with pain and misery,
I wonder if she cares for me?
And when shall come -the thought of
The final pang, the gasping breath,
The unfrequented, silent grave,
She seeks her precious soul to sava;
When on her prayerful, bended knee,
Oh God! will she remember me?
God grant she may remember-ine,
In prayer upon her bended knee!
May her petitions e'er ascend
For the p:ot:iction of her friend,
And may this heart be brought as near
In love to God, as 'tis to her!
She is my first, my only love,
More fair tban angel-forms ab"ve,
Whom I shall cherish 'till heart is
And never a second woo or wed;
Thrice green her memory e'er shall be,
Whether or not she thinks of me !!!

FAMOUS FLORIDA DUELS. ti
How They Fought in the Land of Flowers
A Loafng Tour Through the Land of
the Hotspnrs-Beminiscences of
the Seminole War-A Personal al
Insult that Led to Half a tl
Dosen Fatal Dncoun- cl
[H. W. Grady in Philadelphia Weekly b
Some of the bloodiest duels on record
were fought in Florida. The Seminole
war, in 1837, brought to the front a lot t<
of .reckless young blue bloods that
were full of fire and sparkle. Gay livers
for the most part, they headed care- e.
lessly through the world and carried
the whole defense of their lives in their u
pistol-fingers. A pressure of the trigger
was the answer they gave to protest of cl
deprecation. The brush they had with A
Osceola and his yellow devils warmed tl
them up sharply, and when Prince
Murat settled upon their coast with a
colony of Frenchmen, challenges flew
thick and fast. The Frenchman,. of cl
necessity and with pleasure, fought u,
their way through, and very soon the tt
already turbulent society of Florida 01
had received a deeper tinge from the
splendid drilling of the cut and thrust w
followers of "the Prince." It was in h
Florida that the feud began in which d
the Alstons, Willis and Augustus, lost
their lives. I was sitting one night in
Brown's hotel-a famous old rendez- b
vous of forty years' standing-pickling tc
myself in orange brandy and munch
ing soaked biscuit, when a shuffling old d
fellow approached me. I. recognized L
him as Mr. Zabran, a ragged postscript a
to the life of a gentlemen, engaged at
the time in the humble but respectable to
business of washing dishes at the hotel. re
"Do you see that'ragged hole up there bi
over the furder fly brush?" asked the
old man. Upon my replying to the
question, which really did not require cl
an answer, but was tnrown out by the cl
crafty old gabbler as a lasso, with its
interrogatory loop at the end, he re- ci
flectively wound his cup-towel about
him, and sitting down, remarked: tl
"Well, sir, if all the blood that was
shed in the quarrel in which that hole
was made smeared on these walls it
would redden up this whole room, I
can tell you." The sanguinary seduc- b
tion that the old fellow had put into fi
his story, and pushing him a glass of w
brandy, I asked him to tell me all m
about it. Then and there, in that h
musty and half-ruined hotel, full of its te
wild and riotous memories, the old fel- A
low told me a story that for fierce gal- R
lantry and recklessness puts fiction to a!
shame. The actors in it, of sunny and pi
heroic temper, of large wealth and il- tt
lustrious lineage, are dead. Their de- w
scendants yet live and stand high d
among the highest. Of course, it is im- fi
possible to avouch the particular cor- si
rectness of the details of this story, or d]
the most of those that follow, but the re
general points are believed to be just as i
A DUEL OF THE SEMINOLE WAR.
"In the Seminole wvar," said Mr.
Zabran, ev'dently ambling down a til
wellworn groove of conversation, M
"Governor Call of this State, com- in
manded a crack regiment. One morn- i
ing he received a note announcing that R
is wife was quite ill. He at. once re- p
paired to her bedside. During his ab
sence a battle was fought. Shortly af- c
terward an article appeared in the- as
Chronicle and Sentinel, of Augusta, in-p
sinuatmng that Governor Call had pur- at
posely absented himself from the bat- g
te. The paper containing this cruel ar
article reached the camp and was at to
once the subject of comment. Lieu
t enant Augustus Alston deternu.ned, in t
the absence of his Colonel, to protect rc
his honor,. mounted a horse and plung- hi
ed through the woods for Augusta. 1g
Reaching that city he made his way to g
the Chronicle office and demanded to n
know the author of the offensive article, hi
It turned out that it was Governor sl
Reed, of Florida, for a long time a bit
ter political enemy of Call's. Lieuten- tc
ant Alston at once sent him a peremp- m
tory challenge. Governor Reed re
plied that he would be happy to accom-k
modate Lieutenant Alston with satis
faction as soon as he had concluded an
affair with Lieutenant Williams, of
Call's staff, who had already favored I
him with a note upon the same sub- t~
ect. Alston thereupon had to co'ntent tI
his soul in patience until the affair with seC
Williams was over. He did not have em
to wait long. A meeting was soon ar- t
ranged between Reed and Williams, t~
the conditions of,which were that they 1o
were to fight with bowie-knives, until ""
ne or the other should be cut down.
At the meeting the men came upon
the ground, stripped to their shirts.
They advanced until they met each
ther. They then clasped their left
ands together in a firm and dead
ame grasp, standing toe to toe. The
een and shining knives were then
placed in their right hands. At a sig
nal they were dropped perpendicularly
along their legs. At the next word
they were raised into the air, and then
the terrible fencing began. It was a
>rief, strenuous struggle. The long
nives cut and gashed and wheezed
through the flesh of the ccmbatants
nd clashed and sparkled agains each
other, now buried in vital tissue and
now whipped out with a dim, bluish
oisture veiling the blades, until at
length Lieutenant Williams fell, hack
d almost to pieces. Governor Reed
scaped without disabling injury.
A BROTHER'S REvENGE.
"He then turned his attention to
Lieutenant Alston. Being the chal
lenged party, he had the choice of
weapons. He selected a murderous
wveapon, now happily obsolete, but
then of common use, and known as a
yager. It wa a broad-mouthed, fun
nel-shaped smooth-bore gun that car
ried a handful of shot andl was warrant
ed to hit everything in the neighbor
hood of its adi. The duel wa:s a most
unfortunate one in its direct anid re
miote results. Captain Ke'non was
Lieutenant Alstoni's seond. The prin
:ipals were posted with their backs to
each other. As the word~ 'wheel' was 1
called it is claimed that Aistoni slipped ]
and stumbled: The command, 'Fire
ne-two-three!' followed almost im
mediately, and before he could recover
his gun went off into the air. Gover
nor Reed took cool aim, fired prompt-!
ly at the ward,-and Lieutenr.et Alston
dropped dead. Thus two gallant young j
fel~'s had already fallen im.~ defense of
te honor of an absent comrade. But
ie cruel feud was hardly opened.
olonel Willis Alston, then living in
ouisiana, heard of his brother's death,
id became impressed with the idea
at he had not been fairly killed. He
aimed that Governor Reed should
ve withheld his fire when he saw his
,other's gun spring aimlessly toward
e sky. Indeed, it is said that a sister
Lieutenant Alston had the lead
ken from her brother's body and a
w bullet moulded, which she sent to
Colonel Willis Alston, and demand
