How I Escaped Being Killed in a Duel.
The onlj merit I claim for the follow ing narrative is that it is a true Btory. It has a moral at the end of it, but I claim nothing, on that, as it is merely thrown iu to carry favor with the relig ious element. , After I had reported a couple of years on the Virginia City (Nevada) Daily J-Jntcrprhe, they promoted me to be editor-in-chief and I lasted just a week, by the watch. But I made an uncom monly lively newspaper while I did last, and when I retired I had a duel on my hands, and three horse-whippings prom ised me. The latter I made no attempt to collect; however, this history concerns only the former. It was the old "flush times" of the silver excitement, when the population was wonderfully wild and mixed; everybody went armed to the teeth, and all slights and insults had to be atoned for with the best article of blood your system could furnish. In the course of my editing I made trouble with a Mr. Lord, editor of a rival paper. He flew up at some little trouble or other that I said about him I do not re member now what it was. I suppose I called him a thief, or a body-snatcher, or an idiot, or something like that. I was obliged to make the paper readable, and I could not fail in my duty to a whole community of subscribers merely to save the exaggerated sensitiveness of an indi vidual. Mr. Lord was offended, and re plied vigorously in his paper. Vigor ously means a great deal when it refers to a personal editorial in a frontier news paper. Dueling was all the fasliion among the upper classes in that country, and very few gentlemen would throw away an opportunity of fighting one. To kill a pei-son in a duel caused a man to be even more looked up to than to kill two men in the ordinary way. Well, out there, if you abused a man, and that man did not like it, you had to call him out and kill him; otherwise, you would be disgraced. So I challenged Mr. Lord, and I did hope he would not accept; but I knew perfectly well that he aid not want to light, and so I challenged him in the most violent and implacable man ner. And then I sat down and suffered and suffered till the answer came. All our boys the editors were iu our office, "helping" me in the dismal business, and telling about duels, and discussing the code with a lot of aged ruffians who had experience in such things, and alto gether there was a loving interest taken in the matter, which made me unspeaka bly uncomfortable. The answer came Mr. Lord declined. Our boys were furious, and so was I on the surface. I sent him another challenge, and another and another ; and the more he did not want to fight, the bloodthirstier I became. But at last the man's tone changed. He appeared to be waking up. It was becoming apparent that he was going to fight me, after all. I ought to have known how it would be he was a man who never could be depended upon. Our boys were exultant. I was not, though I tried to be. It was now time to go out and prac tice. It was the custom there to fight duels with navy six-shooters at fifteen paces load and empty till the game for the funeral was secured. TVe went to a little ravine just outside of town, and borrowed a barn-door for a target bor rowed it of a gentleman who was absent and -we stood this barn-door up, and stood a rail on end against the middle of it to represent Lord, and put a squash on top of the rail to represent his head. He was a very tall, lean creature, the poorest sort of material for a duel noth ing but a line shot could " fetch" him, and even then he might split your bullet. Exaggeration aside, the rail was, of course, a little too thin to represent his body accurately, but the squash was all right. If there was any intellectual difference' between the squash and his head, it was in favor of the squash. "Well, I practiced and practiced at the barn door, and could not hit it ; and I practiced at the rail, and could not hit that ; and I tried hard for the squash, and could not hit the squash. I would have been entirely disheartened, but that occasionally I crippled one of the boys, and that encouraged me to hoje. At last we began to hear pistol-shots near by, in the next ravine. We knew what that meant! The other party were out practicing, too. Then I was in the last degree distressed; for, of course those people would hear our shots, and they would send spies over the ridge, and the spies would find my barn door with out a wound or a scratch, and that would simply be the end of me for of course that other man would immediately be come as bloodthirsty as I was. Just at this moment a little bird, no larger than a sparrow, flew by, and lit on a sage-bush, about thirty paces away; and my little second, Steve Gillis, who was a match less marksman with a pistol much bet ter than I was snatched out his re volver, and shot the bird's head off ! We all ran to pick up the game, and sure enough, just at this moment, some of the other duelists came reconnoitering over the little ridge. They ran to our group to see what the matter was ; and when they saw the bird, Lord's second said: " That was a splendid shot. How far off was it?" Steve said, with some indifference : " Oh, no great distance. About thirty paces." " Thirty paces Heavens alive, who did it?" "My man Twain." ' The mischief he did ! Can he do that often?" "Well yes. He can do it about well about four times out of five." I knew the little rascal was lying, but I never said anything. I never told' him so. He was not of a disposition to invite confidences of that kind, so I let the matter rest. But it was a comfort to see those people Jook sick, and see their under-jawa drop, when Steve made these statements "They went off and got jord, and to6k him' home ; and when we got home, half an hour later, there was a note saying that Mr. Lord peremptorily declined to fight. . . It was a narrow escape. We found out afterwards that Lord hit h is mark thir teen times in eighteen shots. ; If he had put those thirteen bullets through me, it would have narrowed my sphere of use fulness 'a! good jdeal-Mvould have well nigh closed it,1 in "fact"' True, they could have pcfc pegs in the holes,' and used me for a hat-rack but what is a hat-rack to a man who feels he has intellectual pow ers J wouklscorn such a position. - -1 I have written this true incident of mT personal history for one purpose, and one purpose only to warn the youth of the day against the pernicious practice of dueling, and to plead with them to war against it. If the remarks and sug gestions I am making can be of any service to Sunday school teachers, anil newspapers interested in the moral pro gress of society, they are at liberty to use them, and I shall even be grateful to have them widely disseminated, so that they may do as much good as possible. I was young and foolish when I chal lenged that gentleman, and I thought it was very fine and very grand to be a duelist, and stand upon the "field of honor ' But I am older and more ex perienced now, and am inflexibly opposed to the dreadful custom. I am glad, in deed, to be enabled to lift up my voice against it. I think it is a bad, immoral thing. I think it is every man's duty to do everything he can to discourage dueling. I always do now ; I discourage it upon every occasion. If a man were to challenge me now now that I can fully appreciate the in iquity of that practice I would go to that man, and take him by the hand, and lead him to a quiet, retired room and kill him Mark Twain. Killed bt a Falsehood. "He is dead," said a friend of ours the other day, in answer to an inquiry after the health of a mutual acquaintance. " Dead ! vou don't sav so. Of what did he die?" "Of eredulity," was the reply; "he believed in a patent medi cine of which the chief ingredient was forty-rod rum, and it proved the death of him." This was true; the unfortu nate man had taken for liver complaint a compound of fiery alcohol and root juice, and it killed him. Now, did that misguided invalid require a tonic ? He did ; but not a spirituous excitant. The writer of this brief statement is con fident, from his own experience, that if the Martyr to Drugged Alcohol had re sorted to De. Walker's Vinegar Bitteks, instead of to the poison with a medical name, which proved fatal to him, he would to-day be in the land of the living. The justly popular vegetable specific contains no destructive element. It is a tonic that does not excite, a cathartic that does not weaken, an anti septic that neutralizes the seeds of dis ease in the blood and other fluids of the body, and a general alterative which arrests diseased action in the secretive organs, and restores the functional regu larity iadispensable to health and vigor. We are no friend of indiscriminate praise, and believe that many patent medicines are merely poison but the experience of thousands has proved the Vinegar Bitters to be all they claim. Com. The N ew Ansrr Uniform. The new uniform of the United States army is very showy, and the plumes for the various branches of the service are designated by different colors. The coat is of dark blue cloth, double breasted, with a skirt extending one half to three-ouarters the listrw he. tween the hip and the knee. Staff onicers wear pants ol darK blue cloth, with stripe of a similar color to that of. the facings of their respective mas, except for infantry officers, where the stripe is of dark blue. Gen. Sher man wore two rows of buttons on the breast of his coat, placed in fours ; he wore epaulettes, and his plume consisted of three white ostrich feathers ; other general and staff officers wore three black ostrich feathers, and regimental officers wore plumes of horse-hair or cocks' feathers of a color similar to the trimmings of their coats. Gen. Sher man and the general and staff officers wore chapeaus ; light artillery and cavalry officers black felt helmets, with gold cords and tassels and " gilt trim mings; other officers dark blue cloth hats. Yankee Ingenuity. In the adapta tion of means to secure ends, in plan ning ways to get out of a scrape, the mind of a Yankee is equal to any emer gency. One of the best illustrations of Yankee ingenuity ever recorded is in connection with the steamer Idaho, that arrived in San Francisco harbor a few days ago. When several days from port the cylinder head of the boiler blew out and left the craft a goodly distance out on the high seas. The steamer was without masts, and there was no friendly sail in sight, to rescue freight or pas sengers. The captain was in dismay, and the crew were calculating how they could save their lives. But while every one else was disconcerted, a Yankee car penter, who was among the passengers, set himself to work, and out of such materials as he could find constructed a wooden cylinder head, which was sub stituted for the iron one, and such ex cellent service did it do that the boiler carried almost its usual amount of steam, and the steamer made its trip with only a comparatively short delay. A mighty hunter in Nevada attempted to get a bullet out out of his gun by melt ing it. Got it out, but had to call in a doctor to get it out of his head. Shaken Constitution. General debility, and the despondency by which It is invariably accompanied, are cftcn regarded as tbo symptomB of incurable physical decay. Of persons thas afflicted it is cftea Baid that their constitutions are undermined; that they have nothing left to faU back upon; that they are hope less cases. This, in at least eight Instances out of ten, is a false conclusion. A constitution may be shaken without being undermined; and even if undermined may be propped and strengthened; and in many so-called hopeless cases there are re serves of vitality and latent vigor in the system that only require stimulating and developing to render them equal to the wcrkof repair. The best and sdrest stimulant and invigorant that can be whether natural or casual, is Hostetter's Stomach ib. ix me loitering pnysiquo can De roused into healthy activitv hv nn v human mpnna thl. regenerating vegetable cordial will accomplish uujecu i;s euect upon ine appetite, the di gestion, the nervous system, the secretive organs and the bowels is most salutary.
