Mrs. Oscar Ericson and Mrs. George FAMILY, MOLINE. Hugo Lutgetis, an interpreter of , Swedish characters, heads the bill for The idea from which the code duello Svas developed came down from the jnorth with the barbarians who over ran the Roman empire. They brought with them the ordeal or wager of bat tle or Judicial duel, which sprang from their idea to fight It out and let the igullt or lnuocence of the accused be determined by the result of the battle. Strangely enough, the Judicial duel was considered a fitting mode of set tling disputes between man and wife. To equalize as much as possible the Inequality of such a contest the man was put In a pit In which he was biiried up to the girdle, while one of his arms was bound to his side. Sometimes a barrel took the place of a pit. For a weapon the man had a bnton or stick, the woman a kind of aling with a stone In it. The story of the duel in the modern pecse may be dated from 1327, when Francis I. gave the lie to the Emperor Charles V., a proceeding which prom ised to lead to a combat of excep tional Interest, but which never took place because mutual friends recon ciled the pugnacious monarchs. ! By tb'.i time the judicial duel bad been gradually abolished, and the pri vate duel, fought before witnesses, who seconded the principals in the en counter, came in. Sometimes the sec onds also mixed it up, and instead of a duel there was a qunrtet or a sextet. The day of dueling has passed long since In England and America and only lingers In France as a sort of harmless comedy. Several duels have been fought be tween women, and there are two or three Instances of duels between a man and a woman, in which the man did not always get the better of It I One of these duels between women was that between two Frenchwomen, the Marquise de Nesle and the Com tesse de Polignac. in the eighteenth century. The two titled women were Rivals for the affections of a certain duke, and an incident occurred which brought on a bitter quarrel between the two jealous prande dames. As a result of this the marquise chal lenged the comtesse to fight her a duel, and the challenge was accepted. Pis tols were chosen and the Boise de Bou logne selected as the plate of meeting, 'hen the women hnd taken their places the comtesse called out to the marquise. "Do you fire first, madame, 'and, mind you, don't miss me; don't imagine for a moment that I am going 'to miss you!" The marquise fired, but missed and hit a neighboring tree. The icomtesse smiled. "Your hand trembles "with passion, madame," cried she. jToo are lostr The comtesse aimed deliberately at the head of the marquise and fired. The marquise fell with a great cry as ot one who had received a mortal wound, but the bullet had only cut away a minute pieee of her shell-like ar. All Paris laughed even the duke. Two duels have been fought from balloons. The most interesting was that between M. de Grandpre and M. Le Tique. which took place on May 3. 1808. Why they selected balloons is not clear, but possibly because balloon ing was one of the crazes of the day. I Each duelist, with his second, got Into a balloon In the field adjoining the iTuileries, and in the presence of a grear crowd the cords were cut and up 'shot the balloons. The combataats were armed with blunderbusses. At ,about 800 feet from the ground Le Pique fired, and Grandpre Immediately jresponded. The latter's shot was ef fective and penetrated I.e Pique's bal loon, which rapidly descended, and I-e Pique and his second were dar-hed to 'death on a housetop, while Grandpre and his second descended safely some seven leagues nway. LA duel with billiard balls took place France Sept. 4, 1S43, between two young men named, respectively, Le vant and Melfant. They quarreled over a game of billiards and decided to fight a duel with the balls with 'which they were playing. They drew 'lots for the first throw, and Melfant won. "1 am going to kill you at the rst throw," said Melfant, and. aim ing the missile, he hurled It at Lefant, 'striking him In the center of the fore head and killing him almost instantly. I Among curious American duels wits that fought at the Oaks, the famous iNew Orleans dueling ground, between iM. Pedesclaux, a Creole, and a retired ! (French cavalry officer, in antebellum j days. The duel was fought with both j com Dat ants mounted on magniucem stallions and armed with broadswords. It was a fierce battle. In which the French officer was killed. SHE DIDN'T LIKE CARLYLE.
