SKETCHES BY M. QUAD
Thoro Was Nu Duel.
After supper u dozen or more of us
congregated in tbo hotel oflioo for ti
snioku, und presently tho luudlord oanio
among us to say:
"Gentlemen, wo liave a liro eater in
this town named Colonel Sebastian. Ho
has several peculiar theories of Iiis own,
aud I wisli to post yon iu advance. Ho
is very strong in his talk, and should
you differ with him ho will challenge
you to a duel. Tho colonel is a dead
shot, and I hope you'll take a friendly
tip and not ougago in a discussion. Let
him huvo his own wuy and never mind
what ho says."
The colonel had never killed any 0110
yet, but that he stood ready to do so if
his opinions were disputed tho landlord
felt dead certain, and so wo agreed to
agree with tho colonel if ho caiuo in?
all but one. Tho oxception was tho
smallest and the most humblo looking
umu among the guests. No oue knew
that ho had made up his mind to oppose
tho colonel, and when tho latter entered
half an hour later ho picked him out of
tho crowd as a good man to go for. Ho
got down ulongsido of him and after a
bit turned on him with:
"Perhaps you have not been inform?
ed that I am the originator of the idea
that all men were oueo animals of some
sort and that perfection has only beeu
reached after many centuries of time?"
"No, sir, I haven't," was tho prompt
"But I am, salt, and what do you
think of tho Idea?''
"Why tho ono just stated. I think
you hoard me, sah. I think you did."
"Uli, 1 remember. Well, I don't train
with tbat crowd, thank heaven."
"What's that, sah?" exclaimed the
colonel, as ho .straightened tip.
"I said I was glad I didn't train with
"Crowd, sabpproTOd? Do you refer to
a man having a great idea as 'crowd?' "
"I do. I wouldn't be found dead
alongside of a man who hud an idea of
that sort. How u man of your seeming
"Sah! Do you know what you uro say?
ing?" interrupted tho colonel.
"And that your language is personal?
ly offensive, sab?personally offensive?"
"I'm sorry you belong to the crowd
which furnishes great ideas."
"Crowd, sali? Why, you have grossly
insulted me and must at once apologize
or accept a challenge."
"Bring on your challenge, colonol." |
"Thou you will light me, sah?"
"Certainly. Just name time, place
anil weapons. By the way, I want to
leave in tho morning. Can't we light in
the billiard room?out in the yard?up
in my room? No uso waiting until to?
"And you'll fight mo, sali?" gasped
"With tho greatest of pleasure, and
I'll bet $1,000 to a shilling I kill you.
Whero can we get swords, rifles, pistols
or bowie knives? I am just acliiug to
"You?you won't apologize?"
! "No, sir, never. My object is to kill
t you and get a theorist off tho face of the
earth. Hurry up, or I may not be able
to hold myself.1'
Tho colonel was on his feet, but he
drew himself up, settled his bat on bis
head, and Iiis face was as white as flour,
and his voice trembled as ho said:
"Sab, I am n lighter and a dead shot,
sab, but as this is my birthday, sab,
and I don't want to stain it with blood
I overlook your iu torn porntu language
and will not kill you, sab."
And with that lie strode swiftly out
of the hotel and was seen no more, and
the landlord, who hud heard all, said
to the little man :
"Stay hero a month if you can, and
there will be no bill to pay. I've known
tho colonel for six years, aud I thought
he ate lire instead of cotton."
II? Was an Honorable.
A fanner whom I mot on the high?
way three or four miles from Paolu in?
quired if I knew whether the Hon. Jim
Heushaw was in town. I replied tbat I
didn't, and asked bint in turn if Mr.
Heushaw was the member of congress.
"No, sab. Jim hain't no member of
congress," he replied.
"Member of the legislature perhaps?''
"No, sab. Jim never went to the
"Is ho n judge or an alderman?" I
"No, sah, be hain't," was the steady
reply. "He's jest the Hon. Jim Hen- ,
Show and nobody else.-'
"But tbe term is generally applied to
men of prominent political position.
How do you make Mr. Heushaw an
"Wnal, sab, it wasn't two y'ars ago
that he shot u mad dog which bud bit?
ten four bosses. Yes. sah; shot that dog
as dead as a nail."
"But that would hardly give him the

u wave of his band. 'Mini Heushaw
was tho first man to tliskiver coal in
"And lie caught three nun setting

"And ho contributed $100 to git tlie
race track at Paolo, and he's got the
fastest trottin horse in this state."
"Go on,'' I said.
"And, sah, Jim Heushaw bei $500 on
tlie presidential lection and won it as
straight as a string. "
"Is that nil?"
"Is that all?" ho echoed us be began
to get red in the face. "No, sub: that,

who says lie hain't an honorable that

?Tho world goes woll and lifo Ir. nil gay.
There is ho tomorrow, just today!"
Smiling I said tt ami turned to CO,
Thinking blindly 'twould ever be so.
A friend said softly: "Life is nil woe.
Joy is n thin;; I never shall know."
Smiling she said it, calmly resigned,
