15ut tbo Duel XVr.a Fought, nud Ererybody
Everyone who knows anything about
Major Winton knows that ho is with) nt
a spark of physical cowardice. Th; ! is
tho reason that ho incurred no ritk in
telling tho story that follows:
"Right uftor the war I vent to Toxas
nnd formed :t business partnership with
a rough but brave and big hearted native.
Wo leased and stocked an extent ice, eat
tlo ranch, hired our cowboys and estab?
lished a little community of our own.
My partner superintended affairs at tho
ranch while I did tho dealing, tho pur?
chase of supplies included. This took
mo to tho nearest market, and, as it was
too soon for tho prejudices between tho
two great sections of the country to bo
entirely allayed, I was very careful to
talk nothing but business.
"But one day in tho hotel an cx-colo
uolwho had taken on extra steam at tho
bar so persistently attacked my political
principles and so dourly aimed his gen?
eralities ut mo that I retorted angrily.
This was what ho wanted. Ho handed
mo his card, aud within half an hour
two of his friends waited on me, pursu?
ant to the codo duello. To gain time I
referred them to my partner and hurried
back to the ranch. Ho was delighted at
tho prospect. It would bo a great piece
of advertising to bowl tho colonel over,
and at the samo time it would insure
mo against like troublo in tho future.
But by principle and training I was ir?
revocably committed against tho duel.
"It was difficult for mo to make my
partner comprehend any such moral bias,
especially as wo had fought off cat tin
thieves together, and he knew that I
had nervo and was a dead shot. Ho

must meet, but with it was a positive
assurance that no ouo should be hurt.
The affair camo off, nud after threo ex?
changes honor was satisfied without a
drop of blood.. My partner had simply
told thecolonel'sseconds that they must
load with blank cartridges or settle with
him. They hastened to chooso tho blank
alternative, and in timo tho colonel and
