GREAT WRITERS NEAR DUEL
Tolstoy and Turgenev in Fierce Dis
pute That Might Have Led to
Tolstoy and Turgenev, famous Rus
sinna novelIsts, w\ere contemporaries
aind friends, but on onie ocenasion they
had a seriaos falling out. As. gathered
from a recent bIography, t his is the
story of their quarrel: The two fit
maouse novelIsts met tat it friend's house.
Turgenev spoke eitliusiastieltly of
hIs young daauglter's tew\ English gov
erness, ntiitloning lutt sht' reqiriied
the child to mend old, ragged clothes
to give to the poor. "Do you contsider
thatt gttod?' demandd Tolstoy. "I Cer
tainly do," reiled Turgenev ; "it iikes
the charily workers realize everydly
netds." "And I 1ini1uk that at well
dressedl girl wlilt filthy, malotorous
rags In her liaids is acting a iusiliere
fiar'ce," co-t:ttented Tolsloy. "I task
you not to say that," excilained Ttil
gtentv, holly. "Why slould I it ta.
what I am: cnvinctd is I rut'e?" retorted
Tolstoy. "If youi. siy that igatii I will
box youlns!" Tlrgenev erled, Vhait
with rage, iand ruslhed from IIt' room.
A dol was nitrrowly averted. After
ward ilhese fmittious men beenme ree
onltilei, ail oi his dlathbed Turgenev
wrote an affecting note to ToIlstoy, ad
dressing him its "the great writer of
our Iussian hutl."-Outlook.
