A Crnle AVho lVm Mniln a IJrnn nml Win, .lust MUacd n. Illihoprlc, DiiticliiK t'ntlcr Comptilntfiii A Fn mmis French I 'e, mile Urn-lint. The stories of American duels nre of great interest nnd nro ninong the mo.t famous in tho wholo history of dueling, hut they nro too well known to be re pented. Thn mnjorlty hnve been desper. ate trngedles whea good men nnd true hnve been led to kill cncli other often through nilsiepresentntlons that lost tho wen lil many a noble nnd helpful life. One, however, that was uot so elisastroti.i was between an American nnd n hot hendeil foreigner. Wbnt the quarrel wns history stntuth not. I'erhnps it was so .sinnll ns to he qulto ovorlooked, but nt nil events It was nrrnnged that the two tnke their plnces on licgB of powder, with a lighted fuse plnceil In the hunghole of each. The kegs, of course, were empty, but ns the fotelgner snw the fire slowly burning down to 'he supposed volcano below him his courage failed him nnd ho lied. Still more Interesting is the story of the Vanltee skipper nnd tho KnglUhmnn. In the enrller days there wns not much love lot between the two factions, con sequently it wns no very hard matter to pick n quarrel, especially when each thought the dentil of the other would be n service not only to his country, but to the world, ln this pnrtlculnr enso the sk'pper of a weather beaten Ynnkeo whaler met an Kngllshmnn In a foreign port nnd hnd nn altercation with him, perhnps over n matter of precedence. A duel was nrrungetl, and at the ap pointed time the Englishman appeared, bunging with him two swords, as though l! ' Yankee lirul the choice of weapons. He Inferred that the armory ot the whaler contnlned no siirh luxuries. Hut the skip per would not nccept the proffered weap on", whereupon the other brought out a lint, Isome pulr of dueling pistols. These, too, were refused, nml the Engllshmnn demanded In astonishment whnt his oppo nent did want to fight with, whereupon the Vnnkeo replied he had brought his weapons with him nnd produced a pair of well sharpened harpoons. The Eng lishman, of course, pictested, but a3 the el. a'ee of weapons did not lie with hint lc wna obliged to accept the harpoons. When the Yankee raised the murderous looking piece, the Englishman knew that nrm. experienced in piercing the dodging whale, could not fail to miss him. The unwieldy hnrpoon began to shake In his nwkward hnnd, nnri he flung It down, leaving the exultant Yankee master of the situation. Another Interesting duel fought with out the use of ordinary weapons had for one of its principals the Duke of Rich mond, then -lccroy of Ireland. His title, to fame rests on the fact of his being a H'rcat duelist and n six brittle man, able to Irink all his staff nnd gentlemen guest! under the table. On n visit to n friend n the west of Ireland the duke complain ed that he had no one to drink with him, and his host, wishing to remedy thiB de ficiency, sent for n curate Tajnoiis for his liqtiur drliikeig. After five bottles had been disposed of by each the curate com plained that It was too slow work and propose ! bumpers of brandy. These wero linn edintely filled nnd as quickly emptied. Fresh bumpers were then rilled for each, but n, the representative ot the church stretched out his hand to receive one ho fell heli, less to the floor. On the follow ing dny the duke made him n denn, re marking thnt if he hnd been victorious In Ihe drinking duel his curncy would have been exchnuged for a bishopric. A little earlier than this the fnmous Dr. Young, going with some Indies to Vnnxhall, then the rendezvous of ull tho beauty and fashion of Iondon, played on the German fiute to nmuse them Just behind them came n boatload of officers, and when the doctor ceased playing one of them Insisted that he should contisuo or be thrown Into the wnter. Wish'nj o avoid a dispute before bis friends, he con tinued; but, arriving at his destination, he sought out his tormentor nr.d demead fd satisfnetion with sworda ami without seconds enrly the following morrlng. When they met, however, nnd had tnken their places, the doctor instantly drew out n hugrt horse pistol nnd, pointing it at the officer's bend, compelled him to daace a minuet. The officer had no choice but to obey nnd for a quarter of an hour kept np the dance. The doctor then lowered bis pistol, saying ns they were quits they might now arrange nuother affair with Fcconds (i id the otlicer might hare satis faction. Hut If England was an uncomfortable place to I've In thoso days, Prance was Btill wors Such a state of affairs ex isted tha- in 1041 was Instituted the "Sa vior's tn.ee," whereby duels were prohib ited from Wednesdays until Mondays. Hut, llko nil other forbidden things, the duel ratl-er grew In favor than decreased. Montalsne says, "If three Frenchmen were pat into the Libyan desert, thoy would not bo a month there without fi.-lhtiue r.nd quarreling." Cases are re corded o( father and sou facing each oth er in in.,rtal combnt, brother arrayed ngninst I 'other and the denrest ot friends killing eich other for absolutely nothing except perhnps a misplaced word. Even the women of France have fought, though, indeed, It wns no very unuRual occurnnce in any country for a wife to disguise herself in her husband's armor when he was unnble to meet the foe him self. One of the most famous of the women duelists of France was Maupln, one of the performers at the opera, fierane, tho fnmous fencing master, fell in lore with her and gave her mnny valuable lessons in the nrt. One evening at a bnll Matt pin was very rude to another lady and was riMiuented to leave the room. Sho replied she would If those sentlemen who hnd espoused tha lady's cause would accompany her. This thfy consented to do, nnd after a hard combat she killed them all. Then she quietly returned to the ballroom. Hut of these affairs no count can bs made. More people hnve probably lost their lives over some foolish quibble than hnve been killed In a dozen wars for their country's good.
