LESSON ON ABBIRATIION. Taught Two Youngsters Who Thought It Manly to Indulge in Fighting. Their Instructor Was a Boy of Larger Growth and More Experience. In Their Discomfiture the Combatants Forget All About the Cause of Their Trouble. rWritten for Tan HELHNA IennD'PENDrNT.1 N THE MIDST OF THE BARREN hills and rocky pastures which surround the town of Anniaville is a circular area of green turf about fifty feet in diameter, from which steep grassy banks rise on all aides. It is just the place for the dances of the elves and fairies on moon light nights. Far different is the purpose which it serves in the day time. For many years it has been the fighting ground of the boys of Annisville, and from being put to this use it has gained its name of the Bat tiefield. Here a joyous crowd often assem bled to see a couple of yourgsters punch each other's heads; and hither oun fine af ternoon in May a little procession came trooping to see Ralph Tusker fight little Bobby Tetlow. The procession moved in three divisions. First same Ralph, surrounded by his ad mirers, then Bobby with a much larger crowd, for he was a great favorite, and lastly the neutral spectators, who had no special preference, but merely came out to see the fun. Both combatant, must have been about 15 years old, but they were very different in point of size. Ralph was tall and loose-jointed, while Bobby was short and thickset. Ralph was pale and nerv ons. He said very little to his friends, and seemed to feel somewhat ashamed of him self. But this wae natural, for he had never been in a real fight before. Bobby had been in a dozen, and was as nonclhalant and talkative as if he wore coing to his din ner. When the procession reached the battle field. the soestators sat down in little com panies on the step sides of the hollow, while each gladiator stripped off his coat, handed it to a chosen friend, and prepared for action. Then the two little wretches be gan to dance about on tiptoe, for neither wes in much of a harry to began. Ralph wits the stronger, but he knew nothing about fight ino; and he thought Bobby did. Blt Bobby, in spite of his dozen battles, in most of which, by the way, he had been worsted, did not much want to g, t too close to Ralph, for Ralph was strong and angry, and altogether not the sort of fellow Bobby liked. In a few minutes, however, the crowd began to taunt them with being afraid of each other. Upon this Ralph, who was more afraid of ridicule that of Bobby Tetlow, rushed upon his foe and struck out with a enucession of very unscientific blows. Bobby defended him self manfully, and, to tell the tr bth, most of Ralph's strokes came nowhere near him; but at last one swinging blow struck him full upon the ear and the gallant Bobby fell to the earth. He was up in an instant, however, and ettaeked poor Ralph, who already had begun to consider himself a victor, with such vigor that he was obliged to give way, and In doing so stumbled backward on a stone and esat down vio lently on the ground. This was more than the spectators could have asked for. They rose and obeered loudly, while Ralph got ap and fiercely prepared to pitch in again. But just as he was rushing on Bobby. ready to finish him, and witr very much the same feeling surging in his breast. I sup pose, which animated Bluebeard when about to out of his wife's bead, he saw a tall figure step in between him and his toe and heard a deep voice say: "Well, well, boys, we've had enough of this." Ralph was almost blind with rage, but he could see enough to know it was Jim Hathaway, whom he looked nuon with great reverence on ordinary occasions, beauase he was so big and strong and had been to college. But now he was so anxious to get at Bobby that he forgot everything else, and avoiding Mr. Hathaway as well as he could, he was r tQUIRitED AND RICKED. launching ii tremendous blow at his enemy, when he felt himself seized by the collar and raised from the ground, and then con fronted by his foe, who had undergone a similar fate. "I have half a mind to knock your two foolish heads together, you little rae cols." said Jim, grinily, while the two ex heros eiquirsued and kicked in a meot en heroio manner. "You look for all the world like two blind puppies juet about to be drowned." Alas for the hero's crown that Bobby and ltalelh bad each hoped to earn. The very a.owd that had been cheering them again and again, only a few moments since, was now lanubing at their miserable plight. When Jim set them down again they wanted no more lighting. The spectators began to move away, for they saw that the fun was over. The two fighters put on their coats and sheepishly wondered what was to hap pen next. Jim came sauntering up to them, and they shrank back, fearing to feel his grasp again on their collurs, but he re assured them. "1)on't be afraid; I won't toceh you. I wouldn't have before if you hadn't kept on fighting when 1 told you to stop. But never mind that. flow would you fellows like to come up to my house and have me give you a sparring lesson?" The drooping spirits of the champions revived at this invitation; and they readily assented. For Jim Hathaway was such a celebrated boxer that for the last two years of his stay at college no one had dated to enter the lists against him. So each of the two boys immediately re flected that if Mr. Hathaway would teach him how to fight, ie would be more than a match for his next antagonist on the Battlefield. Accordingly they set out, with Jim in the middle, al though it was no longer necessary to separ ate the combatants. After a short walk they reached the Hathawars houae, which was a very large and fiue one, and Jim took them to. They passed one of his sisters on the stairs. Ithe was a handsome young lady and they felt quite proud that they were there, and quite as if they had made their entry into society. As to Jim'e room, it almost took their breath away. lheh an exhibition of photographs, dumbbells, In dian clubs, books and boxing gloves they had never seen before. Then Jim made them each put on a pair of boxing gloves and showed them how to spar. Hie taught them the crose-counter and the straight counter and other things too numerous to mention, even if I knew what they were. And when be had shown them as much as he thought their heads would hold he made them give him an ex hibition sparring match till they were both ready to drop. When the exhibition was over Jim told the pugilists to sit down in two great arm chairs. Then he went to the door, and calling a servant, bade her make some lem onade with plenty of ice in it. When his visitors were comfortably sipping their lemonade he began talking to them. "Now, boys, you listen to what I tell you. In old times, when two men had a quarrel, they'd get together in some battlefield or other and fight till one had chopped the other's head off. But by and be people began to think that this was foolish and bar barons, and now when two men quarrel they refer the fight to a judge and jury, who decide which is in the wrong. And in old times when nations had a quartel they used to fight it out till one had knocked the other into a cooked hat; but this, too, is getting to be considered barbarone. and nowadays when two nations quarrel they ate ant to refer the question to wise and impartial judges, and tuese judges decide which nation it in the wrong. And now I want to show you how foolish it is to settle a dispute by fighting. Ralph, you call me a liar." "You're a liar!" said Ralph, smiling. "Oh, 1 am, am I?" cried Jid, p etending to be very angry. "You just come to the battlefield and see if I am or. not." And ho flourished his big fists wildly. Both the love laughed and both felt a little ashamed, for this wis very much what had passed between them not many hours before. "Now don't you see, Bobby." Jim went on, "that if I had had a light with lIalph, and, being so much stronger than be, had given hini a black eye, the fact that I had shown myself a better fighter than he would have had nothing to do with whether I was a liar or not." Ioth boys assented. "Well, then, what is the use of fighting?" "Now, what you want to do when you have a quarrel is to submit it to some impartial person and let hiri decide it to you. You A LFBSON IN JZINO). had better take me this time. ]lobby, what was the dispute between you and Ralph?" Bobby thougbt a minute. Then he turned to his late enemy. "What was it Rialph?" "I don't exactly remember," said Iinlph. Jim laughed. "Well, boys there's no great need of thinking it up. But, as I am the judge. I shall sentene you to so home now, for I have some work to do, mail on the way you must, each treat the other to soda water-raspberry and crearn-rmm rmmber, now." A few minutes later, when Jim sat down on the window seat with his law book in his lap, he had the satusfaction of seeing the two boys come out of the apothecary's shop, arm in arm, wiping their months with their diasengaged hands.
