Manufactures Another Let
ter out of Nothing,
But Mtuingcg to Write About
the Decadence of Dueling,
And alio to Shorten His Signature and
Work off Some of Last Year's
Poetry at the Same Time.
Ono day in tho summer that has just
folded its tents and stolen nllontly away
I enjoyed or failed to enjoy would per
haps be the better expression a visit
from a current of air which I suspected
of being a cyclone. I wrote about it in
a letter, to this ourna1, and also took' ad
vantage of the' opportunity afforded io
tell a few lies, such as I knew would be
expected under the circumstances. At
t lifetime I was unaware that anyone
else had even realized that all the stories
told about cyclones were not strictly
true, but the funny Bide of the cyclone
if it really has a funny side seems to
have also suggested itself to Edward
Willett, who, under the head of "Cyclon
ic," contributed, the following lines to
How broad, and thick, and deep, and high
Tho Western-born tornadoes
Tlut ornament the under sky
With moat peculiar dadoes !
How vint the storms that rtde tho earth,
Electric and cyclonic,
That own a aapernatnral birth,
Celestial or plntonio I
How wild and weird those tempest are !
Their wonders, who can donbt them?
But wilder and more wondrous far
The tiles men tell about them !
However, that has nothing to do with
the campaign. But it affords mo some
and so I grasp it with the energy of des
peration. There isn't going to bo any
more fairs till away next summer, and
the matrimonial outlook is even yet
more obscure. John Hirons is resting
his trenchant pen while he is doing the
Prussian capital, so that the columns he
has heretofore so charmingly filled on
this page are liable to look lonely, and
here your humble servant is in Hillsboro,
of all places in the world the worst in
which to write two or three columns
about nothing. And beside it is one of
these cool, unpleasant, unwelcome, rainy
autumn days, all the more unpleasant
by contrast with the beautiful weather
of a week and more ago. But my pen
has to keep going whether my brain
does or not, and I really fear it is going
now a great deal faster than I'm think
ing. But speaking about the campaign re
minds mo of General Denver, and his
duel, and those things in turn remind
me of something that happened when I
was in Baltimore a few months ago, in
the decease of .Edward S. Jones, at Cecil
ton, near that city, about whom a duel
ing story is related. The deceased was
private secretary to his father, old
when the latter was in command of the
navy yard at League Island, Philadel
phia, and was afterwards in the marine
corps, but resigned his commission about
1860 and retired to "The Anchorage."
In many respects his was an interesting
career. During the war he was arrested
on, account of his sympathy wiih the
Confederacy, and was held as a prisoner
at Fort Lafayette, New York harbor.
Old Commodore Jacob Jones was one
of the great heroes of the war of 1812.
He commanded the sloop-of-war, Wasp,
which defeated and captured the British
sloop-of-war, Frolic, in an engagement
off the capes of Chesapeake. For this
he was lionized everywhere, and patri
otic citizens made him many valuable
presents. The leading cities sent him
services of plate and a costly sword for
his gallantry. When he retired from
active servico he built a residence upon
a fine estate in Cecil county and named
"ths anciiobage."
Congress voted him thanks, a gold
'medal and $25,000 to himself and crew
for capturing the Frolic. But for the
dueling story :
While stationed at Gibraltar, a quarrel
took place between an American mer
chant and a British officer. The Ameri
can challenged the Englishman to fight
a duel, but the officer declined, saying
he could not fight the American, as he
was not a gentleman. This remark came
to the ears of' old Commodore Jones,
who, In a tower of rage exclaimed :
"Well, d n him, maybe an American
Commodore's son- is good enough for
him. Here, Ned, you must fight him."
His son Ned sent the challenge, but it is
related that it was met with' a profuse
By the way, one of the strongest
proofs that the world is advancing in
civilization is tho abandonment of "the
code," as' a means of settling differences
and wiping out insults. Still it seems
strange that an intelligent people should
have, only in comparative recent yearaj
realized that the innocent man is just as
liable to get killed as tlte one who is to
blame for the trouble, and that the kill
ing of an innocent man doesn't make
right wrong In the South may yet be
found traces of the barbaric idea, but it
'is dying' away more and more every,
year. One antiquated old fosail whd
-conducted a paper in a Misalatippltown,
when I' chanced to be connected with a,
Vlcksbarjt paper, a pair ot years ago,
'finding himself worsted in editorial re
,parte and made the laughing stock of
journalists all over the State, intimated
in the columns of his paper that a
Vicksburg editor might preparo to fight
a duel. Knowing that faith in the
code is yet strong nmong tho peoplo of
the South any prominent man might
have feared for the loss of his prestige
who would not have grasped at the op
portunity offered to settle matters ac
cordingly. In the faco of this, how in
finitely braver the Vicksburger proved
himself when In his next issue he said
something in substance like this : "This
paper is too far abreast witli civilization
to approve of dueling, but it has no re
tractions to make. The editor of the it
has proven himself a liar, and no
duel would alter that fact."
The expected challenge never came.
Perhaps it occurred to the other man
that one who was brave enough to face
a popular prejudice of the people, might
also be bravo enough to stand up and
be shot at if pressed.
Perhaps no better statement of tho
way dueling is now (and always has
been) regarded by those blessed with a
proper respect for right and justice has
been made than in the words of tho
Washington C. H., Herald, of last week,
in alluding to the Denver-Gilbert affair:
"While young Gilbert was provoked
to send General Denver (who was known
to be a first rate, reliable shot) a chal
lenge to mortal combat, we have no de
fense to make for him. The act was one
that is not, and was not recognized as
necessary and honorable in a country
where the people claim to be governed
by the teachings of the purer and high
er law. The challenge had its origin in
barbarous countries, and was itself a
barbarous) heathenish act. and its ac
ceptance, and its results were equally
barbarous and heathenish. By no prin
ciples of morality, or the principles up
on which our government was founded,
can the act be justified, nor is it attempt
ed anywhere except where a low stan
dard of morals prevails, unless It be
through a mistaken idea of correct mor
als, in this, the nineteenth century of
the Christian era. The Constitution of
Ohio, adopted in 1831, makes dueling
not honorable under any circumstances,
but a crime under all circumstances."
Thero can't be much satisfaction in
seeing the life-blood spurt from tho
wound you have made in another's
breast, and see his eye-balls roll in agony
and hear him gasp and struggle and seo
him die, simply because he insisted on
I never saw but one man die, and his
pale face and bloody wound haunted me
for many a day after and was before my
eyes many a sleepless night, innocent
though I was of his blood. And had I
been his slayer could I have ever slept
since 7
Should I, in course of human events,
ever be forced Into fighting a duel, I
shall insist, as did the Frenchman, upon
swords at forty yards.
following this article, as you will notice,
is not the one that has followed this
article's predecessors in the weeks that
have gone. The world moves. The
tendency of everything and everybody
seems to be to shorten and abbreviate,
and under the pressure of the style I
shall hereafter abbreviate. What has
been in the past "Tramp Printer" will
be simply, modestly, shortly and sweet
ly, "The Tramp" which is mo. The
new signature is, as was the old one, the
work of my own fingers and jack-knife,
and I am conceited enough to believe
that as an amateur engraver my work is
well, its plenty good enough anyway.
But if anyone don't like it I'll have it
The following verses were written at
Navaaota, Texas, over a year ago. Feel
ing myself beginning to grow ashamed
of them I hasten to insert them, fearful
that If they are not soon used I may be
tempted to throw them away and let
them waste their sweetness in the desert
air of the waste-basket. But they have
given me too much anxiety for me to
afford to lose them entirely, so, bad as
they are, here they go :
The warm sun beata o'er the aandy plain,
A mock-bird sings in tba chapperal,
And orer yon hillock, again and again,
Its fleet wlng'd made chirps an answering
The cardinal bird, like a spark aglow,
With rapid wing and tuneful throat ;
The finch, that thrills and warbles so
'Mid thorny boughs of the grove iwift float.
Like fragile barks, 'mid Isles and rocks
They gnide their way amid the boughs,
While black-bird in their noisy flocks
Add to the fleet their sable prows.
The cbacalaca whirs along
And emblem ever of peace and love
We hear the gontle flute-like song
Of far-off, softly ooolng dove.
The golden belli of tweet wild flow'rs
Peep coyly np j their gentle glance
Well fit for fairest, richest bow'rs
Cast a glow o'er the prairie brown expanse.
Upon yon knoll where grass lies dead
A rabbit alts In a cozy nest,
Where feeding herds with heavy tread
Will scarcely come to disturb its rest.
Amid the mesqnlte tha cactus grows
A fepid, tloggtah streamlet flows
satinet Mia al
The solitude teems a silent wall
Far hope long dead. -
A sound oomts over the rustling leas
I halt my tread
To listen aad hear but tba sighing breeze.

Melawahk, O., Oct. 22d, 1580.
Dear News-Hbuai.d : You and your
weekly budget of news aro welcomed
visitors in my college home and serve as
gentle reminders that I owe you a letter.
Thesa'weekly visits and a faint recollec
tion of a promise made to tell some
thing about Delaware and the O. W. U.
boys and girls in my next epistle, have
at lost led mo to take up tho pen.
School has now fairly begun. Tho
judge from tho grand stand (I. o. Dr.
Payne from the chapel rostrum) has
said "go," and suiting tho action to his
word the students of the O. W. V. have
gone. Many of them, like n Jay-Eye-See
or a Maud S. in the 2:10 trot, have
stretched away with tho utmost speed
and to a casual observer, they seem to
be neck and neck, so that it is impossi
ble to tell which is going to como under
tho wire ahead. Others did not come
right down to business in the start, but
started off on a kind of a jog as though
they were cither going to save them
selves for tho latter part of the heat or
else were just going to drive their time
out and it didn't make any difference
whether thoy were ruled out after the
first heat or not. And lastly, it is very
reasonable to suppose that thoro were
still a fow others that started off like
"Yankeo Doodle went to town" and of
course they are not concerned in the
least about being ruled out, distanced or
anything of that kind ; for "pony" will
take them there if he is only given time
enough. I hope no one will be led to
suppose that the two latter classes are in
the majority here, for they are not ; they
are largely in the minority, if I mistake
not. But it would be exceedingly
strange if there were not some of each
of these classes represented among 700
students coming from more than twenty
different States and territories, and at
least seven foreign countries.
Speaking of the different classes of
students, reminds mo of the words of
the old farmer: "I can't see no usa of
wastin' a five-thousand-dollar eddica
shun on a fifty-dollar boy, no way you
can fix it up." In college parlance I
will say "sound" to that, for it doesn't
take a very shrewd financier to see that
there would be little in any such a spec
ulation from a financial point of view,
and certainly little from any other
stand-point. I mean, of course, that
there would be littlo in it for the "old
man," as the above-mentioned fifty
dollar boy would doubtless style his in
dulgent father, and I hardly think I am
far out of the way when I say there
would be very little real, genuine, sub
stantial good In it for "Young America."
In the language of one of my professors
(who, by the way, is a native of Fayette
county, where they raise big corn and
fine cattle) I will say it would be better
for the boy were he "adding to the pro
ductive interests of his country." But
a father's love is next to a mother's, and
hence the reason why an occasional boy
Is found in college who does not appre
ciate his golden opportunities.
But pardon me gentle reader, for thus
giving way to my propensity to illus
trate a point by telling an anecdote and
at the same time bring out the sound
wagon-horse sense of that almost pro
verbial old farmer. I believe I am be
coming fonder of a good anecdote the
older I grow, and I can't remember the
time I didn't love and in many respects
admire, an old farmer. Boys, if I have
said anything worth remembering, may
it be treasured up in good and honest
hearts ; If not worth remembering, why
all right, I won't charge you anything
for it. Barrere & Co. have agreed to
foot the bill anyhow, so that neither
you nor I will be out of pocket any
thing. Well, I guess that will do for the
preface. Tho next thing in order will
be some of that "fillin"' that I prom
ised in my last.
Is a nobby little city situated in the
central part of the State, some twenty
miles north of Columbus. It is in the
central part of Delaware county, of
which it is the county seat and as it is
also In the center of a township of the
same name, it can be said that Delaware
occupies a truly central position. I
hardly know how large to tell you Dela
ware is, but I tell you the truth when I
say it is the biggest little city in the
State, with perhaps the exception of
Clinton Valley or perhaps it would
sound more citified to say "Smith City."
I wonder that "Tramp Printer" hasn't
struck Delaware in hla checkered career
and written it up for the benefit of your
readers. It would be an excellent sub
ject for hla ready pen and I think it
would just suit him to a T. It is reach
ed by two lines of railroad, the O. O; C.
& I., and the C. H. V. & T. It has three
hotels, the Central House, the Empire
House and Hotel Donavln. My, but don't
that last one sound Parisian like ? It is
an imposingfour-storybrick structure and
all of its appointments within are in keep
ing with it appearance without ; in short
It comes as near being a typo of the
holel tie Parh as nn American hotel
should. Its proprietor, Mr. J. W. Don
avln. is tho gentleman whom many
Hillsboronns will remember in connect
ion with tho Tennesseo Singers. Mr.
Donavln was the founder of the original
troupe of Tennessceans and I have a
dim rememberance of seeing him in the
M. E. Church in Hillsboro some years
ago. Ho brought in his troop at tho
evening service and rendered "Swing
Low Sweet Chariot" and one or two
more selections. I have a distinct re
memberance of his remark, "I hardly
think Dr. Starr's sermon brought all you
folks out here to-night," and then he
got ready for tho doxology. Maybe he
was hitting atr me j anyhow, Earn Jones
says, "the hit dog always hollers."
But I haven't told you yet how large
Delaware is. I asked the hotel clerk
what was the number of inhabitants and
he said 11,000. He saw a twinkle in my
eyes that seemed to say, "rats!" and so
he modified it some by taking off a
couple of thousand, explaining as he
did so, that they were getting up a new
directory and it would contain tho first
mentioned number. He supposed,
though, that the discrepancy arose from
rating tho students too high. Of course
that was satisfactory but I could not re
frain from ejaculating, "great guns!
that's bad on the student" when my
mathematics told mo that one student
was equivalentto almost three residents.
I think Delaware had barely 7,000 in
habitants when I came here, a little
more than two years ago, so you see
there has been a gain of 1,000 a year, if
we count the present population at 9,000,
which is not far out of tho way.
There are some good, substantial busi
ness blocks here, but Delaware is more
noted for her handsome residences than
for her business houses. Then there
are five large college buildings that are
a credit to the town. I may describe
these at some future time, but cannot
now for want of time and space. A
dozen or more of the college professors
have residences that I would like to de
scribe at length if timo would permit.
I will mention but one, that of Dr. Payne.
It is a magnificent piece of workman
ship and I was about to say is a veritablo
palace. Many a king has lived and died
in a far less palatial mansion. It is a
frame structure, and, although not what
may be called a Queen Anne's Cottage,
it is somewhat after that style. It was
completed last year.
I cannot begin to describe the Dela
ware churches in this article and there
fore will not attempt it. I think Dela
ware might well be called "the city of
churches." There are fifteen oreighteen
churches here, representing at least a
dozen different denominations and they
are building new churches all the time.
The Catholic Church completed a new
building last year which is used for both
church and school purposes.The com
pletion of it resulted in the taking of a
goodly number of pupils out of the pub
lic schools whence they were transferr
ed to their own school and put under
the instruction of the Sisters of Charity.
They will thus be brought up in the
Catholic faith so that they will not de
part from it when they are old. Our
Catholic friends realize the full import
of Solomon's words In regard to bring
ing a child up in the way he should go.
They have laid the foundation of an
other church which looks like it covers
a good part of a half acre lot. Their
zeal is such as might well be imitated
by other Christian denominations.
The English Lutheran Church has
erected a fine church building which
was dedicated lost Lord's day. The ded
ication sermon was preached by Dr. Ort,
President of Wittenburg College, and
was a masterly effort. Tho Asbury M.
E. Church Is erecting a new church
building which will he dedicated in the
course of a few weeks. But enough on
this line for the present ; I know you
are already agreed with me that Dela
ware is preeminently a church town.
Now a few words about the O. W. U.,
boys and girls and I am done. The col
lege opened with a larger attendance
this fall than it has for several years and
has now reached nearly or quite seven
hundred. The quota of ladies is also
larger this year than usual, so much so
that Monnett Hall 'would not hold them
all and consequently some were com
pelled to secure rooms out in the city.
The accommodations at the Hall are ex
cellent, a number of improvements hav
ing been made during the past summer.
It must not be supposed that it is only
the daughters of the select few that find
a college homo at Monnett Hall. The
daughter of the minister, the merchant,
the doctor, the lawyer, the editor and
even of the farmer there receives a cor
dial welcome. I haven't much to say
about the boys, more than that they are
like boys the world over. They are just
as fond of kicking the foot-ball and play
ing leap-frog as any in the world and I
was about to say could compete very
favorably with the famous Rugby boys
where Tom Brown went to school. To
hear some ot them talk about club-board
you would think it was perfectly horrible
and consisted of nothing more nor less
than Lalt and pepper, vinegar and tooth
picks. But if you were to see those
same boys kick the foot-ball for two
hours at a stretch you would conclude
that there Is something more substantial
about that" bill of fare than reports say.
As a rule! have found that club-board
consists of a reasonable amount of good,
wholesome food at a reasonable price.
"Old Highland" Li represented this
year by Messrs. Hugh Morrow, Lucas
and Butler, Charles Ketcham, S. J. Brit
ton and W. B. Maxey. Perhaps thero
are others whoso names I have not learn
ed among so many, but no slight is in
tended if any name has been omitted.
I believe Hamilton county will claim Mr.
Ketcham this year.
Alec Holz and Bob Hardy, whom some
of the boys of the News-Herald family
remember as two of tho "Arkansaw
Travelers" are with us this year. This
is the first time for Bob to be so far away
from homo and I think he was a little
homesick at first, but he has gotten
bravely over that now. Alec 13 the
same saucy, black-eyed, mlschevlous lit
tle chap he used to be and likes to hunt
and play foot-ball better than to eat, un
less he is very hungry. He brought his
gun out with him and sometimes goes
out in the country a few miles on Satur
day and kills some squirrels. As I
brought mine along with me too, I mean
to go along with him some time if I can
ever spare the time from my studies and
have him show me how he shoots In
dians. (I hardly know about that either
he might practice on me.) He said he
was obliged to sell his pony this summer
as she was so viscious as to kick a lady
and fracture her leg. But that will do
for the "Arkansaw Travelers."
That kicking pony reminds mc of an
old "chestnut." You may have heard
it, but I will give it anyhow, to help 1111
up that third column. "My son, emu
late the mule ; it is backward in deeds
of violence."
For fear that last column won't be
full and since we are on chestnuts I will
give you two or three more.

Figuratively speaking, tho Sem who
asked a senior if this were his first term

And laughed to hear him groan,

She sat upon the thrown.
