VETERAN TELLS THE STORY OF REMARKABLE FIGHT OF FRIENDS — Another “Yarn From the Courthouse Gang-.’’ In Which Is Told) How Whole County Was Stirred Up Before the War When Its Two Most Prominent Citizens Had a Falling Out About the New Stock Law By WELLINGTON VANU1VKK The old Confederate soldier lmd listened to ike story of a great fight between two champion puglists, as told round by round in a daily newspaper, and with fine scorn of such tame encounters he dived back into the waters of the past, as usual, and fished up narratives of scraps characteristic of his own times: “Them limelight fights don’t have any influence with me,” he remarked. “Most of ’em is faken—fixed beforehand in favor of a lot of gamblers, and the fighting is done for publication, pure and simple, like these here speeches that the five candi dates for governor is inflicting us with. Them chaps git on pink tights, have their photographs taken, see that the newspaper reporters have their pencils sharpened, and that the spot light is in working order, and then they make out like they were going to fight Most of this so-called fight ing consists in getting out of the way of the other fellow and collaring the gate money at the end of the disturb ance. In the good old days before the war things was mighty different. Why, Sah! we fit for exercise! We wasn't mad at each other, nor mean, ner nothin’—but we just hankered to prove to the public that we could lick the other fellow, fist and skull. NO WEAPONS USED **No weepuns was used, except them wdiat Natur bad give us; knives and pis tols was barred. The bystanders made a ring, the combatants went at it. tooth and claw, and when the bottom feller hol lered that he had enough the delighted spectators pulled the top man off, every body shook hands and the vanquished gladiator bought likker for the crowd. When a feller was licked, he hollered, thereby notifying the admirin’ bystanders that his thirst for gore was glutted, and immejitly the audience pulled the victor off’n his prey, in order to enable the aforesaid ’T/ost Cause’ to untie his gal lisses, wash the blood off his nose and settle with the grocery-keeper for the Stimulants, which cost the whole amount of Two bits per gallon—the main drink in them days being Old Monohghehaley Corn whiskey that had teeth to it, and tuk holt scandalus. “Immediately after Combat number one was ended a second one was inaugerated by different parties with conflicting views about their respective heft, so that the same dramy was enacted as the preceed in one with suitable intervals and slight variations endurin’ the entire day and all went merry as a marriage bell, with about half the audience a feeling up for the ground and unable to keep the forked end down, along towards the shank of the evenin’. “At a Public Speakln’. in the old times, I have counted 22 Jights in one day, re sultin’ in nothin’ more serious than a year chawed off, or a nose broke to mar the peacefulness of the occasion. GinnuHy the scraps was between the Red-Aecks, the ordinary folks, but occasionally there Was a history-making scrimmage between a'couple of big bugs, which of course was more talked about then if the fighters hadn’t a been members of the Aris tocracy.” A Real Gladiatorial Combat “Colonel Buck Mallory and Major Thad deus Rose hitched in a Gladaiatorial com bat that was a Peach.

I MALONE-McCONNELL CO | 2024 3d Ave. Phone 1238 Fox-hound, the dinner-horn, the dance and seranade—the hlrth-pluce of Plo-nics and Egg-nogg— the clime where all made merry and where nobody cared a dam for the Iniquitous Tariff. "These two Plantation owners was blue bloods from the head-waters. If there was any real Aristocracy existin' at that time Colonel Buck and Major Thad were samples of the ginorlne article. Each of 'em owned Niggers by the hundreds, and rich land by the league. Bein' Baptists, Democrats and neighbors, they was al ways together, and got along as peaceful as a church. Every day one of 'em vis ited the other, which called for much talk on Politics, more seegar smokin’, and a Inordinate consumption of Mint Juleps. Politics In them times was the main sub ject of talk among elderly Gents so that the mistakes and rottenness of the Whigs always proved a exhlleratin' topic for these old Swells, as they sat on the Porch and fanned with Panamas—they got a heap more out of 1t than we do with the Lacey steal. Comer’s piccolo elo quence and that blasted Amendment question. Consumption of Mint Julips "When they’d git on the subject of the hell-deserving Whigs, the consumption of Mint juleps increased alarmingly, so that the black Butler was often in danger of brain fag, fearing the straws wouldn’t draw, or he'd git holt of the wrong bottle of whiskey. On every topic these friends was unanimous: as kids they had liked each other, as boys they had fit for each other In College, and at the time I am a tellin' you about they was what you might call "Buddies," right. “But bye and bye there happened a lit tle rip 1n the warp of their friendship which threatened to tear open the whole garment. All on account of a cow law which a fool Legislature had sawed off on the people. If there is any law that will make a man madder than a law to re move the County seat, It Is a durned Stock law. Now Colonel Mallory owned a val ley farm, with no range for cattle—pro tected wdth about 10 miles of fencing— and of course he favored the Stock law, but the Major had untold miles of moun tain range where the grazing was fine, not needin' any fence. Therefore he was agin It. Cow Reported Impounded “The first outburst took place one Spring evenin’, when a nigger reported to the Overseer, and the Overseer passed the news on to Major Rose that one of Major Thaddeus Rose’s cows was imponded In the lot of Colonel Mallory. This pro ceedin’ was like a red rag to a bull and tlie Major surged over to the Mallory mansion, all spraddled out, and organized for war. Seeing Colonel Mallory sitting tranquilly on his porch the Major bawled out to him in stentorian tones: 'Oit olt’en that Porch, Mallory, and come down here and explain this outrage to me!' “Colonel Buck got up, sorter lazy, sauntered down to where Major Rose stpod fuming by the gate, and lows: ‘Come on in, Thad, and less have a Julep.' “ 'Julep nothin'!’ bawls the Major, ‘I’ve come over here after my cow, and I’m going to git her, or blood will flow, sah!’ ■’Lookin’ surprised, and hurt, Colonel Mallory stiffened up a little and said: 'I haven't been informed that I have your cow, but if I have one. and you make it a matter of such Imperious and insulting demand, my reply is that you can't get her, sah, unless you first pay all lawful charges for impounding her!’ “ 'Pay your Granny*’ furiously whooped Major Rose. *1 won't pay a cent, unless I have to pay a fine for whipping every man person on this place! I'll have that cow, or else I will lick everything with two legs on your blame Plantation!' “ 'Now, see here, Major Thaddeus Rose,' replied the Colonel, ‘I am not accustomed to such language from any one. You can't bluff me with your threats. I did not know I had your cow, but I am no more afraid of you than of an old woman.' " 'Who’s an old woman?’ spluttered the Major. ‘If I'm an old woman I throw It back In your teeth, that you are an old fool!’ ■' ‘Do you mean to insult me. sah?’ re sponded the Colonel, unconsciously ad vancing a step toward his Irate neighbor. "‘Insult nothin’!’ bawled Major Rose, doubling up his fists, ‘you can't bo insult ed! You are an Old Granny, and I can mop the Karth with yer.’ " ‘Stand back, sail,’ sternly demanded I Mallory, 'slightly pushing against the shoulder of the advancing Major. ‘Ar Har* You'd hit me, would you?’ roared the Major, aimin' a blow at. the proboscis of'the Colonel, but failin' short. 'Take that! you old Rhlnocerous!’ snarled the Colonel, maltin' a lick which was dodged and fannin' nothin' but the air. “After glaring awhile and breathin' hard both these boiling jew-larkers clinched and walked around in the dusty road, doin' each other no manner of harm, but both of 'em bjowin* like spreadin' add ers. Thar was plenty of rocks, and bean poles handy, but they didn't seem to need 'em—fact Is, it looked to a man up a tree as if these old pards didn't want to hurt one another'much. Round and round they clrkled. hugged up like they was mighty affectionate and bye and bye the Major's foot hung under a grapevine root, when with a mighty wrench he jerked loose from his antagonist and fell sprawlin' flat of his back In the dust. The impetus of the jerk also flung Colonel Mallory, and thar they lay, side and side, glaring ai etch other, and after awhile each feller gazed at his own person. Both Badly Mussed Up “Colonel Buck had undoubtedly sorter' laid it on the Major, as that Gent’s nose looked like a busted tomato, which with ; a leetle blood on his face made him look like a drunk fireman at a Dutch Pic-nit*. The garments of the Mage was also right peartly used up, but it was a heap of consolation to him to discover that Col onel Mallory hadn’t got off so powerful light, hisself. His full moon face had enough scratches on it to resemble a profile map of Birmingham's suburbs, a large gap in the thin hair of the pudgy 1 Colonel showed that the Mage had got him where the hair was short, which fact whs further proved by some scattered locks of grey held triumphantly in the perspiring grasp of Major Thaddeus Rose. “There on the ground they panted and scowled at each other for some time, and then slowly and unbidden in the memory of Colonel Buck there came a recollection of how the Major's face looked as it bent over his sick bed five years before, when the Doctors all said the Colonel was a goin' to die. The softening of his antag onist’s expression recalled to Major Rose the autumn evening of the Long Ago. when they both stood together with bowed heads over the open grave of the Major’s only darling boy, when the firm hand-clnsp, and wet eyes of the Colonel was about the oelv solace lie had. But his mind returning to battered features and captive cow I Ills rage broke out afresh. ' 4 “ ‘I'm going to have that Cow if it costs a fortune.’ he yelled. ■‘ftp-id Mallory: ‘Wed,% just take your old long-horn. You could have had her at first If you had askeo for her. Any* way. I reckon I ha\re taught you that you couldn’t bluff me. You ought to be ashamed of yourself trying to run over peaceful neighbors, and about nothin', too. I certainly have taught you a lesson. Just look at that old nose of yours. Why don't you wipe th© blood off of it?’ ’Y-a-a-s.’ sneered Mage, ’and you’d better exam hie your own tough old face looks like a tflripod squach You cant whip a baby, much less a man Why don’t you take a hankercheef and wipe off the blood ?’ "Colonel Thad fumbled in his coat tail pocket, produced a silk square, but In stead of using it on hisself he stepped across to the Mage and mopped that rosy Gent's phiz mighty soft and tender, say ing- ‘By Ganny, Thad, I sure did bung you up! Done you a heap more damage than T thort. S'pose we go up to the house and rub on some arnica before your wife sees you?' " •Shucks!’ said Mage, ‘them cat scratches aint nothin’. 1 give you about as good as vou sent. You can’t beat me at nothin' except fixin up a julep.’ “About My Time o’ Day "This here admission tetched the Colonel on his vain spot. Sorter grinning he jerked his thumb over his shoulder and remarked: ‘S-a-a-y, Thad. won’t you join me In one?’ ‘Ahem,’ replied the Major, It s jest about my time of day. Dont care if I do.’ "An hour from that time two pudgy and affectionate Gents, with mint and things between ’em occupied the front porch. The left arm of the Colonel lovingly em braced the shoulder of the Major, while the right leg of the latter was being care fully nursed In the lap of the Colonel. After a blissful silence the Colonel re marked: ‘Thad, handn’t I better call a nig ger and send your cow home?’ ‘Naw,’ scornfully replied the Major, ’just give her to your niggers for beef. I dont want her.’ ‘All right,’ said the Colonel, ’but on the condition that you’ll let me send that spotted pony over to your little girl as a present in the morning.’ "The softening shadow’s of twilight closed over tw’o bald heads nodding over glasses, while a mocking bird overhead in the vines poured out a musical torrent of lullabys, and the round moon winked good and hard at discovering these two other's arms." others arms.” Proverbs Tramp—You know the sayin', mum: "He that giveth to the poor lendeth to the Lord.” Mrs. Subbubs—Very true. And since you speak of proverbs, I’ll refer you to another old suw. Tramp—Which one Is that, mum? Mrs. Subbubs—The one back in the woodshed.
