Hi'lH-e ut Mar ! blelioncl liiiilii'Ued his uen urljj unweil ut'i- t lit Julie Hebee ufter u:. wife, who Had milled Willi hi ill tor Uiany n voyage imU wu alums! iim b'oml k sailor hh lie was. Tlie tirst voyage of the uew lirig was to u eertuiu South American inuutry, ruled by a dictator, who run-led tilings with n bit:li haml for tive or six years and ttot uway with n luui) or money Just tu time to avoid the revolution that bis corrupt prac tices had evoked. The craft arrived ufter a tine run anil was wuitiug to haul Into the wharf when nu official came aboard and demanded u bonus of $1,000 for permission to land the cargo. This was in udditiou to customs dues and port charges and wus directly from Don Castro. It wus blackmail pure and simple, and Aunt June, us the cap tain's wife wus generally culled, said to her husband: "Jabez Ileuee. we won't pay It, and you tell him so straight from the shoulder. So, not a blessed penny!" The cuptuin braced up and became defiant, mid Don Castro's messenger was sent away with a (lea tu his ear It wus the general opinion that the die tutor would wilt. But the brig was held lu the harbor for forty-eight hours on one pretense or another and was forbidden to haul Into the whurf or set sail for another port. Then Jabez Bebee went ashore prepared to assert and maintain that the govern ment represented by the eagle would stand no trifling with one of Its rep resentatives from Murblebeud and in command of a new brig which hud logged off seven knots an hour with her yards checked in He bud his thunder duly prepared and bis light ning hundy by, but he struck u snug ulmost ut once. Don Castro was a man who would uot stop to bluff the com bined powers of the world If there had been $.H0 in sight for him. The wily old rascal also thoroughly understood statecraft and the number of years that would slip by while the offended government wus ranking an otflclul in vestigntlon Into one of his acts, official or private. "Pay me a thousuud dollars and you can laud your cargo." wus bis answer to Captain Bebee. Captain Bebee enine abourd with a long face, and lu reply to his wife's query he explained what had taken place ashore. The matter was talked over for an hour, and It was finally decided that the captain should go ashore again nnd try to buy Don Cas tro off for a smaller sum. If lie plead ed poverty nnd indulged in uo further bluffs it was hoped that the dictulnr's heurt might be softened Into accepting about $i00. It wus nlmut 4 o'clock when he wus pulled ashore again, and two hours later word was sent us by Don Castro that Captain Bebee was In Jail on the very serious charge of try ing to lii'ilie the very highest officials of the country. When Aunt .lane bad got the sil nation straight in her mind she promenaded up and down with her lips puckered up. At the end of about ten minutes she walked up to the mate with her fare as hard as slime and said: "Look here. Samuel Davis Sinitliers. are you a man or a scarecrow'?" "I'll stand by you In any plan you've got." replied the mate. "And how about the rest of 'em?" "They'll follow me to a man." The crew was called aft, and Aunt .lane detailed her plan. As a result they lifted anchor and sailed out of the harbor about an hour before sun down. The brig ran dowu the coast fourteen miles and came to anchor tu a bay resorted to by the dye craft, and all that night every man of the crew was kept hard at work. While the carpenter cut gun ports in the bin warks for four guns on n side men went ashore and brought off eight logs to represent cannons. These were stripped of their bark, painted black nnd rudely mounted, and. though the sailors were bunglers at I he business, they gave the Jane Bebee a man-of-war look to make you thrill. Viewed from a distance of half a mile the tjuaker guns looked ready to spout flame and smoke and round shot ns big us beer kegs, and Aunt Jane rub bed her hands and smiled and said. "Now for the rest of It." One of the crew had a drum and an other a life and a third a concertina, nnd 1 1 icy were tolled off us the band Kroui the slop chest and fo'castle" they got enough garments to rig up a dozen tummies und make them fast to the bulwarks here nnd there, and they set sail on their return to the port Straight up the harbor sailed the Jane Bebee an hour utter suurist. but she was barely broadside to the town and her anchor down before a boat pulled off from the mob with a flag of truce flying. In that boat sat Captain Keliee. who had been set at liberty with many apologies. "Jane." said Captain Bebee as the brig cleared the harbor and the wood en guns were tumbled overboard, "you are a mighty smart woman, but I can't Just understand it. How in the name of Goshen did you get the idea ? I talked and threatened and blustered and bluff ed, but"- "But a woman never bluffs." she In terrupted. "No. Jabez Bebee. when a woman starts out to do anything she does It. even If she has to walk all over the onion beds in the garden. And now 1 think yon had better wash your hands and face and comb your hair and get ready for dinner. The Colonel's Duel By M. QUAD Copyright, 1315, by the McClure Newspaper Syndic-tie. After supper 'u dozen or more of us congregated iu the hotel office for a smoke, and presently the landlurd cnuie among us to say: "Gentlemen, we have u lire cuter in this town named Colonel Sebastian. He has several peculiar theories of his own, und I wish to post you in ad vance. He is very strong in his talk and should you differ with him he will challenge you to a duel. The colonel is a dead shot, nud I hope you'll take a friendly tip und not engage in a discussion. Let him have his own way und never mind whut he says." The colonel had never killed any one yet, but Unit lie stood ready to do so if his opinions were disputed the land lord felt dead certain, and so ve agreed to agree with the colonel if he came in nil but one. The exeeitiou was the smallest nnd the most humble looking man among the guests. No one knew that he had mnde up his mind to op pose the colonel, and when the latter entered, half an hour later, he picked him out of the crowd as a good man to go for. He got alongside of him and after a bit turned on him with: "I'crbaps you have not been inform ed that I am the originator of the idea that all men were once animals of some sort and that perfection has been reached only after many centuries of time?" "No, sir, I haven't." was the prompt reply. "But I am, sub, and whnt do you think of the ideaT "Whnt Idea?" "Why, the one Just stated. I think you heard me, suh I think you did." "Oh, I remember! Well, I don't train with that crowd, thank heaven!" "Suh, do you know what you are saying?" cried the colonel. "I do." "And that your language, suh, is personally offensive personally offen sive!" "I'm sorry you belong to the crowd who furnishes great ideas." "Crowd, suh! Why, yon hnve gross ly insulted me and must at once apol ogize or accept a challenge!" "Bring on your challenge, colonel!" "Then you will frglit me. suh?" "Certainly. Just name time, place nnd weapons. By the way, I want to leave In the morning. Can't we light in the billiard room, out iu the ynrd. up in my room? No use wnltlng until tomorrow." "And you'll fight me, suh?" gasped the colonel. "With the greatest of pleasure, and I'll bet n thousand dollars to a shilling I kill you. Where can we get swords, rifles, pistols or bowie knives? I am just aching to fight you!" "Were you told nbout me, suh. befo' I appeared here tills evening?" "Oh. yes." "You were told thnt I wus Colonel Sebastian?" "I believe that was the name." "The Colonel Sebastian of the Fif teenth Texas?" "Yes, the Tenth or the Fifteenth." "Who led the charge at Malvern run?" "It was something like that." "Not only one cliaire. suh, but three three desperate charges!" "They say live, but let It go at three." "Anil, suh." said the colonel ns he frowned like n bushel of carpet tacks, "did you hoar thnt I was a duelist?" "Something was said to that effect." "And that I bail had twelve affairs of honahV" "Only twelve, colonel? Why I under stood it was twenty." replied the oth er. "Well, tills one will make you thir teen." "Yc. stih-yes. suh. Will you honah nio by givitis your name?" "Name? I'loase excuse me for my forgotfuhipps. Did you ever hear of (ieuerni t'liilvcrs'" "Why why" "Of the Louisiana Tigers?" "Who wlnit"- "Who led nine desperate charges at second Bull Kim?" "Bles me. su'i!" "And who has kilted three times the number of men that you have In duels?" "Oeneral Chllvers" "Never mind that, colonel. Ton have challenged me. and I accept Let us have It over with ns soon as possible, as I hnve some business to attend to." "General Chllvers" "I choose pistols, nnd I don't think it will detain me over Ave minutes. Where shall we go?" The colonel swallowed bis Adam's apple three or four times nnd then asked: "Yon you won't apologize?" "No, sir. never! My object Is to kill you and get a theorist off the earth. Hurry up. or I may not be able to hold myself!" Tbe colonel was on his feet, but he drew himself up. settled his hat on his head and his face was as white ns flour nnd his voice trembled as he said: "Suh, lama fighter and n dead shot, but ns this is my birthday, suh. and I don't want to stain it with blood 1 overlook your rather eccentric ways." And when the silence ha J lasted five long minutes the landlord turned to the small and humble man and gasped: "For heaven's sake, who and what are yon?" And the reply was: "Oh. I'm Just Simmons, and I trav el for a Chicago crockery boose. This Is my first trip." $1500 to $3000 to loan on Al property See A. E. DONNELLY 74 SOUTH BEACH STREET.
