Car pentier had 19 chances to one of coming through a duel with . pis tols unscathed. A little prick from the tip ot a disinfected sword would have caused the referee to call the fight, in the event of a meeting on the field of honor. ' . . - Another point which Mr. Luquet makes is that the school children of Paris, owing to the publicity giv en to pugilistic encounters, all im agine that when they . reach 20 years . of age they will be cham pions of France and Navarre, with the result that they are devoting more time to flattening the noses and cauliflwering the ears of their comrades than to the study of classics or modern sciences. 1 10c AifilCArf 10c rss Today g William Fairbanks g "Peaceful Peters" : Also I "By Heck" : A Mack Senett comedy Sunday H Go Get 'Em Hutch EE ' Ko. 10 EE Harry.
