Tin; olt!f rs of one of the volunteer regiments were rivaling tln-uiselves In Havana, where the command waa sent after the. surrender f Santiago. fie brating the results of the campaign. During the evening the reiiueiilul sur K'tii. Major Norris. deliberately insult h1 a young lieutenant, llertrani, who was sitting opposite liim at table. Ber tram was surrounded by a number of junior otlieers, Norris by several sur geons who happened to lie on duty at Havana at the time and who had been invited to participate in the festivities. Norris accused I'.ertraiu of eowurdice before Santiago. Since Bertram bore i'li unexceptionable record bis compan ions were astonished at the doctor's charge. Bertram left the "table and sent one of (hem to demand a retrac tion It was refused, and he sent a challenge. The doctor agreed to nive satisfaction, but as the challenged par ly demanded the privilege of choosing the method of the contest. He dcclaP-d that his method would involve certain ly the death of one of the n litagoutsts mid stipulated that Bertram should sign an agreement before knowing of the terms to accept them. '1 his Ber tram was obliged lo do or remaia un der the ban of cowardice. When the preliminaries were completed and the paper was signed Norris made kuuwn tiis way of lighiiiig. Two pellet, tin1 one harmless, the other containing priw sie acid in concenlratiil form, weiild" lie placed in a cup. The principals should each draw and swallow a pellet. Some of Bertram's brother otticers begged him to refuse to tight on the terms on account of their uumilitary character, but he suffered fit severely under the surgeon's aspersions that he dcclan-d he would rather run one chance in two of dentil than live under oblotpiy. He f 1 1 1 1 i 1 1 - 1 his agreement, and after the dinner was over a party of ollicers, including all the surgiM.ns who had sat logeiher a) table, the two principals ami two of Bertram's com pany, as'senibled in a room above where the bauUct hail been held, ready for the duel. Norris chose one of the surgeon and Bertram another lo prepare the pellets, both agreeing that the major of the regiment act as supervising umpire. The three retired to an adjoining room. where I hey were gone a long while. There was cvideiiilv a want of har mony among them, and the major's voice could be heiird raised in protest, the words "certain death" lieing di. ti in t ly audible. While this was going on Surgeon Norris sat coolly reading a medical journal. Bertram thinking of that terrible even chance letwvii life and death. The consepieiie was that when at the end of an hour the men returned from the other room Bertram was very nervous. "( letitleuien, are yon ready?" asked (lie major, who held the cup. Both replied in the aMirmative. "This cup," continued the niaS'tr. "contains the pellets, as agreed Ihii. The surgeons who have prepared them have surrounded the fata! one wltti winlergreen." lie held the nip Sirst Norris II the ranking oilieer, who chose j pct and Kwalloweil it. Bertram, whose hand trembied. did the same with the re maining pellet. Presently Norris said. "Bertram. I comniisef r.e yoil. I era i k ed my nllet with my ic :L, and yet I taste not hing " At the same moment Bertram went deadly pale. Tin- outer coating of his pellet had been dissolved, and tlire was a strong Ha vor of wintergiveti. "If you have anything in say." ni! Olie of the surgeons, " should .idvise you lo say it piiekly. The drug, jm! know, nets instantly, and we have rI lowcd only ten ininules for its inelosure to be dissolved." B"rtrain was standing when f took the pellet, but llow the certainly of death weakened his knees, mid he said; back mi a lounge. One of those pr-s.eit brought him writing materials with which lo write a last message. He too the pen. bet was unable lo write. Nev Titleless his pluck was good. "It wort-' ipiiekly." he said, with some cuullie,. "The nervi-s of my lingers are already fiowerless." "Speak what you have to say." naij one of the surgeons. "Your tongue will soon be paralyzed." Bertram spoke a few words, then found it impossible to arti'.'iilale fur ther. He sank lower on the sofa and closed his eyes. The surginu whom he had chosen to prepare the food of deiitti went lo him and felt of his heart. "The whisky, ipiick!" h shouted. "tJreaf liea vens. I'm afraid le's gone!" Whisky had been kept at hand, and 1: If a tumbler was Hiiired down the lieutenant's throat. "I say. I'.ertraiu." cried the mirgmn. "you are mistaken! You hive not swal lowed poison'" I'.ertraiu slowly op ihsI his eyes and looked wildly about him. "This is not a duel." cm 'inueil the surgeon "If is medical experiment to test if a man may lc killed by tie Imagination. The pellets were Imth made of bread " "Wake up.
