A DUEL TO THE DEATH.
of Man's Crime and
KY IV. I- FRENCH.
It was in the early days of Texas,
many 'years ago, when the incilents that
form this sketch transpired. In one of the
small border towns, where the cattle
mon of the surrounding country mot to
spend their money in drinking and
gambling, held forth a gambler, who
was known by tho name of Handsome
Cleve. If ho had any other namo no
onoknewit; or whence ho came. That
he fairly deserved the title handsome,
none who ever saw the man would deny.
Perhaps it was a certain ease and grace
in his movements that won him the ap
pellation. But he was as heartless as
ho was handsome, and though he usu
ally bore a polite and gentlemanly de
meanor toward all with whom ho came
in contact, yet he was known to be the
most dangerous man in that section of
country in a deadly encounter. Sov
eral mon who had given him offence
since ho had been in the town had met
their death violently at his hand. His
skill with tho revolver and his coolness
in danger mado most men fear to en
counter him in a fight, and as law was
laxly administered on tho border in
those days, his murderous deeds went
About this time there drifted into tho
place a young man from the East, who,
like many another young fellow, had
come to the boundless West to mako
his fortune, aud like tho others, per
haps, he had left behind a sweetheart
to mourn his departure and eagerly an
ticipate his return.
Henry Lester was only 22. Young,
and unused to tho wild, reck
less ways of the peoplo among whom he
had so recently entered, there is
little wonder that ho soon encountered
trouble. In character he was honor
able to a fault and could not brook
cowardly, deceitful conduct in another.
On the evening of the day 01 his ar
rival in the town ho drifted into Hand
some Clove's saloon and gambling
house, and was soon engaged in watch
ing the game closely between Clove, as
banker and dealer, on one side, and a
dozen cattle men on the other. Cle e
was winning all tho larger stakes with
ease and letting the smaller ones lose,
and, as Lester watched him closely, he
detected that Cleve was dealing what is
known in gambling parlance as a "brace
Not for an instant thinking of the
danger to himself, ho determined to in
form the men about the tablo that they
were being swindled, and ho said
"Men, you are being cheated by that
fellow; he is not dealing fair," pointing
The men about the tablo looked at
the young man in surprise, and several
of them hurriedly moved away from the
vicinity of the table as though they ex
pected" that the bullets would soon bo
Hying about there in a reckless fashion.
There was no one present that would
have made the assertion which he had
so boldly spoken except with a weapon
in their hand ready for instant use.
Much to their surprise, however,
Handsome Cleve did not shoot the dar
ing young stranger on the spot, he sim
ply gave him a sharp scrutiniingglance,
and, realizing that the man before him
was from the East, and no doubt un
skilled in the use of weapons, he de
termined to engage in w hat ho termed
"a fair light," though nothing could
have been more unfair than a duel be
tween these two.
"You havo made an assertion; now
come cut and back it," said Cleve
"I can do that," replied Lester
quietly, as ho followed Clove, who had
risen and was moving toward tho door.
He fully realized the dangor with
whioh he was now threatened, and ho
wondered much that the men w horn the
gambler had been systematically cheat
ing did not' punish him for his rascality,
but he was not awaro of the power
whioh a cool, determined man exercises
over a crowd, through the fear in which
they hold hi m.
"If you have any word for your
friends you'd bettor leave it with mo."
said a voice at his elbow, as he was
about to pass through the door.
Henry thought the man had spoken
with a view of intimidating or frighten
ing him, but the kindly face and look
of the man assured him that he was in
earnest in what he had said, and Henry
"Only that my father be notified if I
fall; you will find his address in my in
ner coat pocket," and without waiting
for a reply he passed outside.
The moon was shining brightly, and
objects were as plainly visible as they
would have been by the light of day.
"Are yon armed?" asked Celve
abruptly, as they approached the spot
where he was waiting.
On receiving a reply in the affirma
tive the gambler continued: "I shall
walk to the post yonder" indicating
one some twenty yards away "and
when I reach that I will turn and com
mence tiring, so be prepared and do not
attempt treachery, for the men here
know how to punish if
"If they did you would have been
dead long ago; but have no fears, I am
not a cowardly sneak," and he cast a
look at Handsome Cleve that said as
plainly as words, "If I am not, you are."
Cleve bit his lip with anger as he strode
toward the post he had designated.
Beaching it, he whirled about, revolver
in hand, and almost instantly two re
ports rang out Lester fell face down
ward in the street dead, with a ball'
through his brain, while Cleve, without
deigning to look at his fellow adversary
walked coolly back into the saloon and
resumed his place at the gaming table.
Lester's body was picked up and car
ried into an adjoining building, on the
morrow to be started on its journey to
his old home, to bring grief and sorrow
to loving ones there.
One year rolled swiftly by, and
Handsome Cleve's gambling den is run
ning on, just as of yore.
He is at the table to-night, as polite,
suave and murderous as ever. He has
added two victims to his list since Les
ter fell before him, and he is' more
feared than ever by those with whom
he comes in contact The usual mis
cellaneouB crowd surround the table,
and many of them are betting freely, in
a vain effort to break the bank.
Among them is seated a quiet well
dressed stranger. Be is of alight
stature, with small, regular features
and a face as smooth as a girl's. He
bets coolly and steadily, and his eyes
never wander from the dealer's hands.
He starts to his feet as a large sum he
has just bet is raked across the table
and disappears in the gambler's ever
Hi's eves flash fire as he says : "That
was not" done fair. You are a cheat
and a scoundrel."
"You lie!" roared Cleve, and his ever
ready gun flashed in the lamplight, but
for once he was too slow, and the
stranger had him covered before he
could raise his weapon.
There was a scattering from about
the table, and the two soon had a little
space clear to themselves.
"Put up that weapon! demanded the
Handsome Cleve hesitated. It was
something he had never been compelled
to do before, and now he almost deter
mined to run the risk of instant death
to overcome his enemy.
"Put it up ! Quick.'or you are a dead
man!", shouted the stranger as he
noticed Cleve's hesitation:
Slowly tho weapon was returned to
its holster, and Cleve remarked: "You
have the drop, and lv'e got to do as
Without noticing this remark the
stranger thus addressed him: "I
suppose 1 have insulted you by
what I have said, if such a
thing is possible with a man of your
stamp. Come outside and we will set
tle it. Let ono of these men step off
twenty yards and I will give you a
hhowfor your miserable life, though
you don't deserve it
'Thank you for your kindness," re
plied Clevo, whoso spirits readily rose
with the prospect of a fight before him.
They were soon outside, wherooneof
the crowd obligingly stepped off the dis
tance and tho two men took their posi
tions. They were to hold their pistols ready
by their side and at the word fire they
wero to commence shooting and con
tinue till one or both were killed, for
duels in those days on the border were
usually fought to the death.
Few present believed but what the
strauger would meet the fate of all
others who had stood before the weapon
of Handsome Clove, and that ho with
his usual good fortune would escape
"Fire!" cried the man, who was to
give tho word.
Two hands Hew up, and two shots
rang out simultaneously, aud as the
smoke drifted up both principals were
seen to pitch forward to the ground.
Men hastened to their assistance, but
Handsomo Cleve was dead before they
reached him. Ho was Bhot through the
brain, just as Lester had been.
Tho stranger was shot in the breast,
and lay with closed eyes, breathing
One of the men stooped down and
loosened his clothing at the throat to
permit him to breathe more freely.
As ho did so he started back with an
exclamation of surprise, "Good God,
boys, its a woman !"
The stranger heard him and slowly
opened her eyes and said : "Yes, I am
a woman and I am dying; but tell me if
he is dead?"
"He is," replied several of the men in
"Then my lifo is not sacrificed in
vain. Ho -killed my betrothed, Henry
Lester, and broke my heart. I vowed
vengeance on his slayer, and now that

She lay for a moment quite still and
then suddenly stretching out her hands
and starting partly up, sne crieu.
"Hcnrv, 1 come!" and sank back,

The Ideal Entertainment.
Perhaps the choicest of modern enter
tainments is the dinner party, says
Harper's Bazar. The smooth rich
napery, the costly china, the noiseless
service, the well-dressed guests, the
well-cooked viands, combined to make
up a most attractive scene; yet all these
are subservient to another element, and
if this bo not present the dinner is a
failure. These guests are gathered not
to look at fine linen, nor silver pitchers,
nor to contemplate each other's clothes,
nor even to feast upon tempting food.
The prime object of their coming to
gether is the interchange and stimulus
of thought. There must be talk at the
The more refined and elevated and
sparkling the talk, the more successful
the dinner. If the talk lags, if prosy
dullness monopolizes the time, if un
fortunate topics are brought forward.
tho whole entertainment comes to
naught. The faculty of fresh, stimu
lating, discreet conversation is the most
desirable of society accomplishments,
and yet how few there aro who possess
it. Indeed, how few there are who
seem to understand its value, to strive
after its requirement for themselves or
to teach it to their children.
At the meeting of a woman's club, not
long ago, for intellectual purposes, two
elegantly dressed members of the so
ciety, during the hour allotted for social
intercourse, discussed their daily diet !
This was not done as a means of im
proving that diet, nor for any sort of
useful purpose. The menu of dinners
eaten during a prolonged attack of
dyspepsia formed a juicy bit con
tributed by one; the other retailed a
list of the dishes in the composition of
which her cook excelled. After ono
calendar hour spent in variations upon
these topics, the ladies fell to discuss
ing their new clothes; but the meeting
was then called to order, and an essay
ist upon Browning took the floor.

home. What goes abroad is bad, very
bad and horrible. Besides containing

A FEW SUGGESTIONS Fdft OUR
Some lafbrsBatioa or Value to the Farmer,

THE FARM, v
An Oleo Test. -
The host and tltnplpst tst ever dovisr-H
for touting oleomargarine was given to
the tmbtie snnie years ago by Prof.
Thojiias Taylor, of the United States
Departmonrot. Agriculture. The test is
tv easily appfie(T7Trrttfccnsists in eom
biningllic ainjtle with sulphuric acid, in
the proportion of one grain of" the sub
stance to two drops of the acid.
When pure butter is eombinrd with
sulphuric arid 111 these proportions it
changes immediately to an opaque,
whitish'yrllow. Within five minutes ft

takes placviid it becomes a very pale
shade of scarlet. In thirty minutes the
color deepens perceptibly.
Hut fn-sh oleomargarine, made from
beef fat, when treated with sulphuric
acid, becomes at first a transparent amber
color, and in the course of twenty min
utes chances to a deepj;rimson. When
the beef OH'O i stale or" decomposing it
turns under the acid treatment to a dark
Fn-sh ol'o, with a lardbaMS, when first
treated changes quickly to a transparent
amber, a .hade paler than beef oleo, and
in half an hour becomes a deep brown.
Itutter oleo mixed will show tints in pro
portion to the quantities, of each.
Scab on Sheep.
Mr. Cass, of Kansas, gives the follow
ing on this plague of the flock:
Scab is caused by a spider-like parasite
called the aearus. It is aearus which
produces Itch in man and mange in other
animals, but the sheep aearus or scab
mite will not live long on any other ani
mal. A female aearus will burrow into
the skin of a healthy sheep aud within
ten or twelve days lay eight to fifteen
eggs, which are quickly hatched, and the
young in turn are laying eggs within the
next ten or twelve days, until within
three months the increase from one fe
male has according to reliable authori
ties, reached the vast number of l,roo,
000. A close observer will detect the first in
dications of scab in about two weeks after
exposure to contagion. One thorough
dipping with tobacco and Milphur. or
other safe dip, will kill all living cab
mites on the .sheep. A second dipping
ten days later will kill all that were un
hatched at the fir.M, dipping and leave the
flock clean, provided the work ha been
properly done. Some, to insure success,
give a third dipping ten days later. After
the first dipping the sheep must be re
moved to fresh, uninfected yards, pas
tures, etc., or all will again become in
fected. Frost, only, will effectually
cleanse a barn, jard, or pastures from
the infection of scab.
The Art of Slacking.
Few understand the art of stacking
hay so that rain will not get info the ren
ter, says Mr. W. II. Do.me in the Ommjc
Juild Fanner. One great enemy to keep
ing of hay is the wind, especially in Kan
sas. Many time the farmer gels his hay
and grain stacked up in good condition,
and along comes a gust of wind and all
his labor is swept away, as far as the
keeping qualities of his Mack is con
cerned. Enough hay goc to waste every
j ear on many farm to pay for lumber to
cover it. In Illinois, years ago. stacks
of hay were roofed with three-eighths or
five-eighths inchceiliiiir. They were hip
4Vofed, making them as solid as light ma
terial could make them; then to hold them
in place four l.4 inch posts were s.-t in
the ground fourteen feet high, with four
plates at tho top to hold the posts in po
sition and keep them plumb. Thy roof
was placed in position before the posts
were sot up. having the corner at the
cave ends of the roof gained in to permit
the roof to slide iipurdowu on or between
the posts. Holes wen bored in the posts
to put in pin to hold the roof up. When
it is time to begin stacking fasten the
roof at the top of the posts anil begin the
stack between the posts. Iluild to a
finish, or in case there is not enough hay.
put in what there is, stopping work on
the stack for any length of time, take
out the pins and lower .the roof down
upon the hay, leaving the hay level, or
nearly so. As the stack settles the roof
will follow the hay down and protect it
from rain and wind. If I were going to
build one I should build it for ricks in
stead of stacks; it would be cheaper in
the long run in cost of lumber and the
work generally. Then when not in use
as covers for hay they could be used for
storage of farm tools, wagons or any
thing that should be housed from sun or
Seeds of any hardy flower of which
more plants are desired, are better sown
as soon as ripe. The voting plants which
come up will bloom the next year.
When it is observed that trees planted
in the spring have trouble in holding
their foliage, mulch them and prune a
little more, even if it is late in the season.
Wiiii.k trees and plants are growing is
th" time to prune them, to make thick
bushes of them. It forces out the side
branches, giving, perhaps, a half doen
for every one that was there before.
Common ashes from the house are ex
cellent to use on heavy soils. Many
changes of a beneficial nature hae been
made by their ue. It gives a porosity
which it i hard to get in any other way
Ccttixos of chrysanthemums rooted
in late summer form nice little pot plants
for house decoration in eaily winter.
Plants which have been grown since
spring are often too large for the pur
pose. Common poppy seeds sown in half wild
places give variety when they grow and
flower. Thej re-sow thenisele when
once introduced. Several lots of En
glish field ioppy seen in situations re
cently suggest the thought.
CiiuvsAXTiiEMrM uiulticaule is a re
cently introduced plant of dwarf habit
and bearing buttercup-like flowers. In
wet seasons, such as that of last year,
the plants rot out badly. Hot summers
suit it best. It is an annual and forms a
low. thick mass of foliage.
Amo.no weeping trees destined to be
come ery popular is the Tea's weeping
mulberry. There is just enough sweep
of the branches as they bend oer to
give a pretty outline. The long pendu
lous branches soon reach the ground.
They should be had on stems of from

It seems ver nice to tell of having to
prop up the limbs of fruit trees to sup
port the crop, but it is evidence of lack
of knowledge. Such a tree is overloaded,
and is being injured by being permitted
to carry so much fruit.

A great many orchardists say that
while trees grown In grass are of slower
growth than when cultivated, they are
almost entirely free of blight. The
growth ripens well and is able to resist
all fungus attacks. Coolness at the root,
which sod produces, is of great benefit
to all kinds of fruit trees:
Pear bght is le93 abundant In or
chards where btit fair growth Is made
than among trees forced along by strong
manures. Moderate growth well ripened
is the best for pears. For this reason in
districts where blight abounds the trees
are often grown in sod. There is but
little pear blight in Pcnnsyl-ania.

pear Is not that It will not bear, the fault.

Any other sort grafted on it does well
enough, showing that in somo way it is
the fruit and not the treo that the fungus
attacks which cracks the fruit.
Some laugh at the idea of varieties
running out, but there is no doubt that a
change of plants is of benefit sometimes.
Raspberries and strawberries will fail to
give satisfaction at times. If the same
kinds are brought from distant parts to
replace them they do well enough. The
same may be said of potatoes. Good
varieties of strawberries will deteriorate
after some years, and new seedlings have
to be depended on.
The Care of the Eyes.
Troubles of the eye are very common
and numerous, and yet for many of them
the simplest remedies can bo npplied
with the most salutary results.
When cinders or other -foreign bodies
get into the eye, do not drop in a flax
seed or use a key, for these do more
damage than the cinder. It might bo
almost as well to get a crowbar at once
as to use a key.
The proper way to get a cinder out of
the eye is to draw the upper lid down
over the lower, utilizing the lashes of
the lower as a broom, that it msy sweep
the surface of tho former, and thus get
rid of the intruder. Or, gently drawing
the lid away from the globe, pass a clean
camel's hair brush, or fold of a soft silk
handkerchief, two or three times be
tween them. This procedure will in
nearly all cases suffice; when it does not,
the services of a physician are neces
sary. It is a remarkable fact that a very
minute body will give riso 10 intense
pain, and even after it has been extracted
the sensation remains for an hour or
more. After the intruder is out, gently
bathe the lids every fifteen minutes in
iced water till the feeling subsides.
When the eyes itch, or are a little red,
bathe them with a weak solution of salt
every few hours, a teaspoonful to a glass
of cold water.
Should an eye be greatly inflamed and
painful, bathing it in hot water will re
lieve for the time being. The eye should
be kept perfectly clean, pus and other
discharges gently washed away with
lukewarm water. The other ee may
be infected by the discharges, so the
affected one should be covered by a
light bandage, Kemember that matters
from an inflamed eye are infectious, and
a person having sore eyes should have
his own towels and wash basin, which
ought not to be used by any other per
son, lest they, too, contract the disease.
When the eyes stick together in the
morning, a little vaseline applied to the
edges of the lids before going to bed is
better than all the patent eye-salves in
existence. Crusts forming on the edges
of the lids may be readily removed by
gentle friction with the tips of the fingers
dipped in warm water.
Advertised nostrums aro usually ap
plied without reason, and, like homo
