that It was most impolitic for Whistler
to offend them It was growing late
and yet Whistler was painting away

One Highly Distressing to an Ac
complished Swordsman
Used by a Weak or a Timid Opponent
It Renders His Adversary Practicall
Helpless A Case of Two Playing at
the Same Game
A long aud Interesting chapter might
be written ou the humors of dueK
which never came off or which iu home
way fell short of deserving the name
A case which occurred a few years
ago in Paris the particular home aud
harvest field of the habitual duelist
merits mention
A peaceable looking gentleman was
walking down one of the boulevnrds
with a lady on his arm when out of u
rafe sprang a man who dealt him a
violent kick The victim turned oulj
to meet the horrified apologies of tin
aggressor who begged to assure him
that It was wholly a mistake iu iden
tlty Instead of insisting upon an ex
change of cards and the other custom
ary forms the kicked man answered
with much warmth but admirable self
control I cannot sir accept your ex
pression of regret as sufficient Ynnr
action may have been a mistake as
you say but acquaintances of mine
may have witnessed It and will go
away and spread the news that 1 have
submitted to an insult without aveng
ing it I must therefore and instantly
slap your face with equal publicity
The other most becomingly assented
the first sufferer administering a ring
ing blow on his ear and the affair
ended with entire satisfaction on both
Weak or timid fencers are sometimes
taught by their masters to keep a more
skillful antagonist busy by fixing the
sword in one position aimed straight
at his sword hand and then not mov
ing except to retreat when pressed too
hard it Is highly distressing to hn
accomplished swordsman to have to
face a learner so instructed for It
means a great outlay of energy and
wind to little purpose
Comte de Dion ouce thus chased a
retreating adversary across plowed
fields for a mile and a half and final
ly under the wheel of a cab for the
poor satisfaction of giving bim a t > ight
prod in the back Dr Clemeueeau in
his famous duel with M Deschanel
after a swift and wearisome pursuit
halted shouldered his rapier like n
walking stick and strolled back to bis
original place throwing the contemp
tuous remark over his shoulder And
now monsieur I will await you here
Catulle Mendes had a similar run
after Lugne Poe through the forest of
St Germain which he ended by fling
ingbis awnsVQfi iitoJiir5 buabtar
with the angry exclamation I am
willing to die from exhaustion by the
roadside if need be but not from run
ning alter a poltroon
A yet funnier incident was that
which occurred In Toulouse where a
lawyer of some note named Cazeneuve
was called out by a landed proprietor
whom he had offended by a speech in
court He repaired at once to a fenc
ing master as he knew nothing what
ever about handling a sword This
teacher gave him the usual advice
about keeping his adversary at arms
length with the poised and immovable
rapier but strongly enjoined bim not
to retreat It so happened that the
landed proprietor being equally Igno
rant applied to the same master for
instruction The master who waa
somewhat of a wag gave him the law
yers lesson In duplicate
When the two men met and their
seconds had duly placed them a long
and tedious stillness ensued Koi
more than five minutes each foeniau
stood with his sword arm extended at
full length waiting for the other to
advance Then the seconds Inteneu
ed claiming that both had pnneil
themselves men of honor and courage
and that nothing further was necessa
ry but to shake hands and be reeou
And this recalls the occasion when
Lieutenant Randolph Ridgely of our
army while iu the Mexican war wa
sought by two young ofilcers who bud
quarreled and each of whom wished
the lieutenant for his second It was
finally arranged that be should act as
second for both On the field nbeie
the adversaries were armed with shut
guns Ridgely measured off a Hue oi
ten paces and placed them respective
ly at Its two termini cocked his own
revolver and announced that he would
give all the orders himself and In liH
own way and that he would shoot
down whichever of his principals dis
obeyed bim in the slightest particular
Then came the orders very delib
erately uttered Present arms Car
ry arms Shoulder arms Take
aim They took careful aim and
waited almost breathlessly for some
minutes for the command to fire It
never came Instead came the orders
Present arms Carry arms Slioul
der arms Right about face
Front Forward march
They recognized his commands us
given In deadly earnest and knew that
It would be lnstautlj fatal to rebel
He kept them marching till tbej
reached his tent There be halted
them and bade them stand at parade
rest till they had listened to a lecture
on the folly of dueling which falrlj
made their ears ring But lie sea
soned his dose of rebuke with a feu
words of praise for the soldierly met
tie they had shown iu facing each oth
ers gun without flinching and the
two men became fast friends from
