In this day of the development in aeronautics it may be interesting to recall tlie first duel that was ever fought in the air. It took place In 180S and, as might have been ex pected, occurred in France. XI. de Grandpre and M. le Pique had a quar rel arising out of jealousy concerning a lady engaged in the Imperial Opera. They agreed to tight a duel to settle their respective claims, and iu order that the heat of angry passion should not interfere with the polished ele gance of the proceeding they postponed the duel for a month, the lady agree ing to bestow her smiles on the sur vivor. The duelists were to fight in the air. Two balloons were constructed ex actly alike. On the day of the duel De Graudpre and bis second entered the car of one balloon, Le Pique and his second the other. This was iu the garden ot the Tuilerles, amid a big crowd of spectators. The men were to fire, not at each other, but at each other's balloon, in order to bring them down by the escape of gas. As ids tols would hardly have served for this purpose, each aeronaut took a blunder buss in bis car. At a given signal the ropes holding the balloons were cut, and up they went into the air. The wind was nearly moderate and kept the balloons in their respective positions, about eighty yards apart When about half a mile up in the air the preconcerted signal for firing was given. M. le Pique fired, but missed. M. de Graud pre fired and sent a ball through Le Pique's balloon. The balloon collapsed, the car descended with frightful rapid ity, and Le Pique and his second were dashed to pieces. 'De Grandpre continued his ascent and terminated his aerial voyage at a distance of seven leagues from Paris. History does not state whether be was rewarded by the hand^pf the lady for whose sake the duel bad been fought —New York Herald. SPOKE HIS OWN DOOM. In Spite of His Caution an Innocent Remark Condemned Him. The father of Gueau de Reverseaux had been a distinguished lawyer, and through bis influence he held impor tant olfices under the government When the revolution began he gave up his office at La Rochelle and retired to Chart res. From the time that the revolution began Gueau de Reverseaux devoted his attention exclusively to preserving his own safety. He wrote no letters. II would receive no letters. lie saw no visitors and paid no visits. He spoke to no person and allowed no one to come near him. It wouUl have been impossible to be more prudent than be was. However, lie wanted some sheds built on his farm near Chartres and ven tured to consult a carpenter. The car penter told him that he could not un dertake the work Immediately, as Gueau de Reverseaux wished, because most of bis workmen were drafted to join the army at once. Gueau de Reverseaux replied: "The workmen need not go. They can send substitutes." This remark was heard by the work men, but only the first phrase made any impression on them. They reported everywhere that M. Gueau de Rever seaux, who must be good authority, had said that they need not go. The news went to headquarters that Gueau de Reverseaux declared that the draft ed workmen need not obey the gov ernment. This was considered to be conspiracy, and he was condemned to death and executed. Who He Was. A traveler saw a woman take a man by the collar, yank him up the steps into a railroad car, jam him down into a seat, pile up a valise and two big brown baskets with loose covers and long handles at his feet and say: "Now, sit there until I help Mary Jane on the car, and don't move till I come back." When the woman reached the door the traveler said to her: "Is that man your husband?" "Naw!" roared the woman. "He's my daughter's husband, and she hasn't spirit enough to say her soul Is her own." Wouldn't Work Nowadays. The Egyptians had a very remarka ble ordinance to prevent persons from borrowing imprudently. An Egyptian was not permitted to borrow without giving to his creditors in pledge the body of his father.
