A younff clerk in Albany is wiser
than he was a year ago. In the bank
where he was a clerk a new man was
given a somewhat inferior position.
The new coiner was a small, slight-j
Frwnchmal , whose English
was decidedly lame, but who so
seldom spoke that it made little differ- j
«ce- The senior clerk had a decided ;
penchant for fencing, and. compared
most,fellows of his age and position,
^ unquestionably a good swordsman.
In addition he was a most insufferable
bruggart, and Ms military accomplish
men f wag hig wic 0 f thought and
conversation. He had about him a
very patronizing air, which he pro-;
f^bacic evidently displeased the >
stranger. Finally, a particularly em
phatic thump between the little French-1
man's shoulders produced as response
a-stinging slap in the face, which left
the red mark of a small hand sharply
the otherwise
prominent against
deathly pale face of the young Amer
Speechless with rage, the young man 1
found his desk, and shortly afterward,
through a friend, challenged the
Frenchman to mortal combat. The ,
latter apologized, in fact did all in his t
power to undo the mischief of his hasty
blow; in vain. "Nothing but blood can
wipe out that insult," the youn{f man
said, haughtily. The details were ar- !
ranged, the Frenchman, as the chal- ;
lenged party, choosing rapiers. Greatly i
to the surprise of the hotblooded young
challenger, the cashier of the hank, j
who knew the Frenchman well, acted
as the latter's second. The day came,
and the hour. The principals stepped
to position, salutod, and the blue blades
or0 ssed with that smooth, gliding
sound which is music to the ear of the
true swordsman,
whose familiarity with his weapon
evident at the start, confined himself
at first entirely to defence, turning his
opponent's point with a grace of move
ment and absence of fear or nervous
ness which were poetry in action. The
young man grow bolder, his thrusts
began to have an air of ferocity which
seemed to anger the Frenchmen a
trifle, and turning aside his opponent's
thrust he made a quick lunge, which
the young American baroly parried.
Another quick thrust and a turn of
the wrist was too much for him. There
was a sharp snap and the top button
of his coat flew across the room. An
gry at this evident trifling, the button's
owner made a spiteful lunge, which
was quietly parried, and the next but
ton was snapped away. One after an
other the shiny buttons on hiB natty
blue-braided jacket were out off by the
Frenchman's ready point. Decidedly
"rattled" at his opponent's skill and
the irrepressible smiles of the seconds
and surgeon, the young clerk now,
with greater rapidity and less caution,
made fierce lunges, any one of which
would have driven the sharp rapior
through the body of the cool French
man, while the little man, quietly
parrying with the sharp point of his
weapon stripped the front of the young
man's jacket to ribbons. The contest
had lasted some twenty minutes when
suddenly the Frenchman caught the
swiftly advancing point of his opponent,
turned it aside, slipped his own sword
quickly down along the other's blade,
turning it with a quick wrist motion
so that it partly wound around it, and
with a sharp wrenching motion tore
the weapon away and sent it flying
across the floor. Then he saluted,
The Frenchman,
threw his weapon down, and left the
room. It subsequently transpired that
the foreigner was, and is, a member
of a once noble French family, a Cap
tain in the French army, and his teach
ers have been some of the best swords
men in France. The young American
has not challenged any miscellaneous
foreigners since then and is less in
clined to talk of his experience or
skill.— Albany Journal.
Durable and Ornamental.
There is a new invention which will
be of great advantage to those who
wear rubber boots and shoes for pro
tection, and may be a means of making
these articles more valuable for orna
mental use. The trouble has always
been to get a sole which would wear,
for the usual boot, when constantly
used, will not wear more than a month.
They are not durable goods and are ex
pensive to those who havo to use them
constantly. The new invention pro
vides a substantial sole, which will
wear as long as leather. The upper is
constructed in the usual maimer, but,
while the rubber is still warm in the
mold, studs of metal are pressed into
the inner part of the sole and molted
rubber is poured around them so aa to
hold them firmly. This forms a smooth,
hard sole, preventing it from being
pierced by the metal, or allowing the
rubber to become enlarged or leaky.
The sole lasts as long as the metal
studs remain, and make a rubber boot
as durable as leather. This is in the
line of improvement toward rubber
footwear for ornamental use;— St. Louis
