An Aimlr Iletween Two Col
New Lexixgtojt, O., Jan. 19, At the
mining town of Corning, in Perry County,
are a number of colored miners who were
imported from time to time pending strikes
by white miners, until, with their families,
they form quite a community. They have
their schools, their churches, their court
ships, marriages, and now since last night
they nave had their duel. It was the first
affair of honor'in ihe colored commnnity,
and it is an occasion of pride as well as of
excitement. Of course it was about a lady
Susan Shaver. She was the object of the
loves of Harold Robinson and McClellan
Balfie, and was unable to choose between
them. The rivals met one evening at the
young lady's house, and they quarreled as to
which should have the pleasure of her com
panv. The quarrel led to a challenge from
l il . . .. il. .,1 .. , . -4 .
one oi me men 10 me omer 10 meet nini in
deadly combat. The challenge was prompt
ly accepted, and last evening just before dark
was the time set Ior the duel, and the sub
urb of Corning was selected as the battle
At the appointed time the principals and
their seconds arrived at the place agreed
upon, ai;d preparations were speedily made
for the duel. The weapons previously agreed
upon were British bulldog revolvers. The
antagonists took position, and at the word
both blazed away. Robinson missed, but
the ball from Balfie's pistol lodged in Rob
inson's right cheek. Both stood firm; Rob
inson fired again. Balfie escaped, and Rob
inson received another bullet from Balfie's
pistol, this time in the right side. This put
a stop to theaflair, and all parties returned to
their homes satisfied. It is thought that
Robinson's wounds will prove fatal. Balfie
has not yet been arrested, but can hardlv
escape, a the offieers are after him.

That Boston contains a ladies' gymnasium,
well-appointed and in constant operation, is
a fact that is not generally known. The
Boston gymansium has had a short but un
usually successful course under the direction
of Miss Alary h. Allen. The hall contains
every appliance for gymnastic work, and in
the side rooms there are ample numbers of
bath and dressing-rooms.
The physical development that has fol
lowed a few months practice in the gymna
sium has, in every instance, been marked.
One lady, when she first entered, could ex
pand the chest only to 314 inches; at the
end of six months, inflated, it measured 33
inches. At first the limit of her power ot
contraction of the cheat was S0J inches, but
in the same time it became 29 inches, a gain
in six monins 01 mcnes in tne nexiOdity
of the chest muscles. One little girl, about
eight or ten years of age, when she entered
was in a wretched condition, but at the end
of two or three moaths had gained sixteen
pounds in weight, and was stronger- and
brighter every way. The gymnasium closed
at that time for the summer, but she
CONTINUED TO GAIN IN HEALTH AND
from the impetus of her few months of
practioe. One lady gained during the
gymnasium season of six months, one-
eitrhthof an inch in the upper arm measure-
meit, and three eighth in the fore arm.
Cases are numerous," sa:d Miss Allen,
"of slight curvatures of the spine that have
b' en benefited in every innance, and usu
ally entirely corrected. One shoulder or
hip is orten so much higher than the other
that the two sides of a dress roust be cut
differently; but this, which is really a slight
curvature, a few month' gymLaitic? will
remedy. It is often caused by playing
croquet or tennis entirely with one band,
and I have one case of a lady with a slight
curvature resulting fiom always carrying
her train with the fame hand."
A visit to tbe gymnasium showed its
pupils to ran go all the way from five years
to forty, and to be drawn from all classes of
society, but mainly from tho wealthiest and
most cultured The gymnattio costume of
blouse and Turkish trouteis,with low-heeled
elastic-soled ehoes, seemed in itself to Le a
source of gret enjoyment to the gymnasts,
and it was almost pathetic to see the pleas
ure they derive from the unrestrained
use of limb and body; they disdained tbe
common me mod oi locomotion, and ran,
skipped, jnmped wherever they wished to
go, appearing to take a wonderful pleasure
in the mere exersiee o muscle, as if
they had not known what they
could do. Said one miss to a
friend who had come in to look on: ''You
don't know hiw gol it teems to get into
this costume." An eminent nhviirian
speaking on this subject, said that if the
ladies did nothing ehe it would be of great
benefit to them just to run about awhile in

IT WAS EASY TO DISTINGUISH THE SF.X
'each by the different motion of the body.
In the matter of rucniog tbe advanced
claste showed .what can be done by prac
tice. The beginners in this exercise ran
with a heavy, ungraceful step and an awk
ward motion, while those who have been
under instruction for a longer time ran with
an aase and grace of motion and a lightness
and elasticity of step that could not have
been excelled in waltz of schottische.
While a score of girls under Wm Allen's
direction were exercising with pulley
weights a number, aided by a subordinate,
were vaulting, one was in the rowing ap
paiatus pulling away with as much z it as
if ehe were gliding swiftly down stream, an
other was climbing the shinning pole, two
were practicing all sorts of contortions on
the parallel bars, cne was making her
way along the fljing rings with the pecu
liar graceful, swinging motion which this
exercise gives, and on a mat at one side of
the room two merry p iris, whose bright
glances have been greatly coveted in the
assemblages of the elite of the Back Bay,
were turning somersaults, interspersing
their exercise with such merry peals of
laughter as showed their enjoyment of it
was ot do email aegree. Two others,
marchirg about the room with beanbazs
piled high on their headp, were acquiring
straightnets of rpinal column and elegance
or carriage in tneir enoris to elude each
other's attempts to dash said bean-bags to
tbe floor. At a signal irom the piano they
were ranged in position, with dumb-bells,
and, after going through tho various exer
cises with these, and marching and running
about the room, at the signal 'Rest" they
disported themselves in picturesque and
GRACEFUL, THOUOH UNCONVKNTloXAL ATI
on the floor mats about the room. In
speaking of the lack of muscle among the
women and girls when they first enter the
gymnasium, Miss Allen, a slender, petite
btdy, who is herself an example of the ben
eflts of gymnasium training, said: ''When
they first come in they have no muscle at
all; they can not lift their weight on the
parallel bars, and they can not vault with
tne poie as mgn as me Knees oi an average
sized woman. After a year or two of exer
cise they can vault with it up to their
shoulders. Gentleman g)mnasts often say
to me that thev have easy prelimi
nary exercises which the girls can do
easily; they are such that any boy fifteen
years old can go through them without dif
ficulty, but no girl who has just entered
here can begin to do them. The lack of
muscle among them is quite astonishing."
When questioned with regard to the aim t
the gjmnasium, the replied: "We do not at
tempt to teach tricks, and we make no pre
tense of bet -vy work. What we aim to do
is to correct deficiencies, develop the system
t jnly and tone it up by raising the circula
tion, which will result in a better appetite
and better general health. I have had
ladies come to me who were
UNABLE TO TAKE THE 8TANDINO XXKECISM
and would take what they could lying on

sician's treatment would be so aided and
supplemented by these that they would im
mediately begin to improve. Frequently
they cotre to their lessons feeling wretched
ly, and will a?k if they 'had better exercise
to-day but at tbe end of the lesson they
will say they never felt better."
As the ladits emerged from the dressing-
rooms, ciad once more in conventional na-
Mliment?, with some astonishment it was
noted that many of those who, in gymnastic
costume, had teemed to ba gay girls of
from fifteen to twenty years, were demure
ladies and stately matrons who must surely
have pasted their thirtieth mile-Eton e.

LYON AND OSCEOLA
Counties in Northwest Iowa, are con
ceded to be the most beautiful and fer
tile in the State. This summer we
have opened upwards of 300 new farms,
sinking a well, building a convenient
house and roomy barn, and breaking'
from 60 to 100 acres on each farm.
These farms are to let on terms that no
industrious man can fail to make profit
able. Immediate posfsession given.
We will, if needed, furnish seed for
next year's crop. We will also furnish
breaking to be done, for which we will
pay the regular prices. Tenants not
having teams enough to break with,
will be supplied with a horse or horses
for that purpose, at market price, and
the pay taken in breaking. These
farms are situated within a few milea
of the railroad. Apply personally or
by letter to CLOSE BROS. & CO.
