By WILLARD BLAKEMAN
When the Franco-Prussian war broke
o-;t Edward Penton. a young American
medical student who. on account of
youth, had escaped being either killed
by ammunition or disease in the great
struggle that bad ended five years be
fore In bis own country, went to Ger
many and through the Influence of the
American minister was accepted as
assistant surgeon with rank of lieuten
uct. After the battle of Gravelotte. when
nil the medical staff was most needed,
word was brought to Dr. Suedicker,
medical director of the Prussian army,
that the American had deliberately in
sulted a medical officer of his own
rank and that a duel was to be fought
between the two.
"This is very wrong," exclaimed the
doctor with a scowl. "These two
young men may both be disabled, and
we have not now enough physicians to
take care of the wounded."
"And yet, doctor, the challenge hav
ing passed, there is no way out of it
Both would have to leave the army If
they did not fight."
"They don't fight duels in America,'
naid Dr. Snedicker. "Send this Ameri
can to me."
Penton reported, and the doctor en
deavored to persuade him to apologize.
"I'll tell you what I'll do, doctor,"
Penton replied. "I'll agree to Are nn
ininglnary shot nt him, and if he is not
killed at the first fire I will apologize
"What do you mean by that?"
"Permit the duel on the following
terms: Make two tablets, both harm
less. Announce tbat one contains a
deadly poison. The principals each
choose a tablet Convince my oppo
nent I.leutennnt Berkhalter, that be
has chosen the poisoned one."
"If that will satisfy you, proceed."
As soon as -the , wounded were at
least temporarily provided for Dr.
Snedicker called a number of medi
cal officers into his tent and. Inst of
all, the participants of the duel. He
showed them two pellets exactly alike
in appearance, announcing tbat one
was harmless while the other contain
ed prusslc acid. The one containing
the poison would have the taste of the
kernel of peach stones. "And now.
gentlemen." concluded the doctor,
"choose. It is better for this army to
have one lire surgeon than two dis
abled ones." .
Berkhalter bravely stepped up to his
superior, put his hand Into a glass
tumbler and took out one of two tab
lets. Penton took the remaining one.
Then at a word from the commander
each put his tablet in his mouth. An
officer handed each a glass of water,
which be was required to drink in or
der to maVe sure tbat he had swal
lowed his dose.
Berkhalter turned pale. He had rec
ognized the taste of prusslc acid given
him by his superior. One of the offi
cers stepped up to the doomed man
"If you have anything to say, say It
quick. The poison acts at once."
"I have only to say thnt I propose to
die as an officer of the Prussian army
should." replied the plucky doctor.
At the same time he felt his legs
giving way nnder him, and he sank
into the arms of his second, who car
ried him to an army cot and laid him
upon it Fenton went to biro and of
fered him his hand.
"I envy you," he said, "your oppor
tunity to show yorlr bravery. I would
not have you die without withdrawing I
the offensive words I spoke to you."
But Berkhalter bad passed into nn
consciousness. "Are you satisfied?" asked Dr. Sned
icker to Penton.
"Walt n moment nis imagination
cannot act while he is unconscious. lie
will revive presently."
Snedicker was disposed to put an
end to the matter before it should be
too late, but a German Is nothing if
not an Investigator, and he was con
tent to grant the request on the ground
' Presently Berkhalter opened his eyes;
but seeing a group of officers stand
ing over him, watching him die, he
closed them again.
One of the tnedlcal men present went
to the cot and placed his hand on
Berkhalter's heart, then looked anxious
ly at the American.
"A few minutes." he said, "will place
him beyond the pale of revival."
Penton whipped a vial from his pock
et and. removing the stopper, held it
under his antagonist's nose. Berkhal
ter again opened his eyes.
"Tell him," said Penton and Immedi
ately left the tent
"Doctor." said Snedicker. "you hove
not swallowed potion. The duel has
been turned Into a scientific demonstra
tion. Xelther tablet contained poison."
"Where is the cursed American?"
cried Berkhalter, standing erect "1
shall kill himr
"Here is c written apology."
"I want no apology. I shall kill"
A corporal came In. but Berkhalter
had no mind to be handled by an en
listed man and subsided.
Penton received a warning from his
commander that be had better keep
out of his late opponent's way if he
didn't wish to die a violent death. In-1
stead of doing so. the next time he saw ,
bis enemy he approached hlrn with j
outstretched hand. j
"These Americans." said Berkhalter,
"have no sentiment"
