From his sudden disappearance on the
morning of the duel nothing was seen or

abroad, when, at a like early hour in the

"1 have been expecting you," said Cap

himself fearfully calm.
He conducted his visitor into an empty

him to load it, while he proceeded to

"You are more than a match for me
with swords," he said, "and so we will try
these. It is my wish that one of us may
not quit this hall alive. We will take our
places and fire at the wor 1."
"Aud Monsieur le enpitaino shall give
the word," replied Houitan, with the most
perfect sang froid.
At the first fire the imp-rialist received a
flesh wound in the sh mlder, and the
royalist lost a portion of Ids right ear.

As they were taking fieir positions for

with bitter emphasis:
"Now, then. Monsieur le captaine, I will

Both pistol cracked together nt the
