Neither Could AVIn Her.
Something like fifty years ape two
young men , ono a lawyer nnd the other
a doctor , loved the same girl in the
town of Grand Gulf , Miss.kiyf3 the San
Francisco Chronicle. Both could not
have her , and neither could live with
out her. They decided to fight for her.
It was to bo a duel to death. There was
no insult to bo avenged by the discharge
of Hrearma , no stain on a reputation tote
to be wiped out bya fawidrops of blood.
The death of the ono wns demanded by
the other. The lawyer said it was to
bo a duel a outrnnco. The arrange
ments for a innssaero wore complete.
The principals were armed with rilles ,
revolvers and bowie-knives. They had
moro confidence in the continuation of
their hate than in the accuracy of their
aim. The rifles wore to bo discharged
first at twenty paces ; if neither com
batant waa killed they were to advance ,
firing their revolvers at will , and , if
they still lived the battle was to bo con
tinued with knives. '
It waa early morning when the party
of four men principals and seconds
left the little town of Grand Gulf und
bought a grove u few miles distant. No
olTort at reconciliation was made ; no
time was lost in the preliminaries. The
men were 'placed ' , the word was given
T. ) fire and the rlllos echoed the signal.

though the d6rotor gave his opponent
more thah 'tho time allowed by the
Marquis of'QUeonsbcrry rules ,
The marksmanship of the phyolclan

was made 3ibbu't ' tjio fight and she was
removed to nliothor part of the state.

San Frunul ao > and three weeks ago ,
after flftv-thre years , appeared in the
office of Dr. Vorhios , the well known
oculist. Ho is Dr. S. M. Tibbets , who
for many years was QUO of the best
known physicians in the state. Ho
gave up a large and lucrative practice
some time ago , as the burden of his
years proved too much for him. A cat
aract on his eye rendered him sightless ,
and his visit to Dr. Vorhios was that of
a patient to a physician.
with the assistance of Drs. Taylor
and Lane , Dr. Vorhios removed the
opaque substance , and the hero of the
duel in Grand Gulf , Miss. , had his
sight completely restored , and although
now eighty years of age , sees remarka
bly well , while In the operating room
Dr. Tlbbitts was asked how ho hud
lived for many years in Mississippi and
retained his solf-roapcot without fight
ing a duel. Then ho said ho had en
gaged in a battle , but had forgotten
the name of his opponent. Through
the mist of sixty years , he said , the
cause of the duel was nothing but it
seemed u right worthy cause when ho
accepted the lawyer's challenge.
A few days later S. Tood. of Stanis
laus , visited Dr. Vorhies * ofHco to bo
treated professionally , nnd while there
said he had lived at Grand Gulf for a
number of years long before the war.
He was ask'ed if ho knew a doctor of the

minister pitched forward on his face in

By that discharge darkness foil on

writer of note. His religious works
have boon widely read , and his "Pillar

Gladstone on Dante.
Mr. Gladstone's estimate of Danteox-
pressed after n paper read by the
bishop of Ripen at the duke of west-
minster's house , contained this : "I
wish to boar testimony with tlio bishop ,
as far as language can , to the degree of
magnitude and the importance of his
works , which can hardly bo possible to
exaggerate upon. Dante has a place
absolutolv alone in the whole compass
of what is called literature , and I do
not think that there is any writer who
can compote with Dante in what I call
educated power. In my opinion , the
study of Dante is a very serious matter ,
entailing a serious responsibility.
Every thinking person who gives him
self to that study cannot , during the
study , but feel profoundly its effects , for
many are the lessons which the poems
of Dante convoy to humanity , "

Vice President Morton Still a Banker
Our cocky weekly contemporary , the
Epoch , says the Now York Sun , speaks
with the proud consciousness of an ia-
fulliblo mugwump :
"Nothing moro indelicate in the
whole Hold of American politics can bo
imagined than the vice president of the
United States remaining a partner in a
banking and brokerage house in thia
city. The moment that ho took tjio
oath of olfico Mr. Morton should have
resigned from the firm of Morton , Bliss
& Co. This is so plain as to admit ol
no argument whatever. "
This Is nonsense. Thcro is nothing
either in the constitution or" the laws of
the United States to require any such
thing. 'The only provision that the
slatuies make in this direction is' that
which prohibits the tioorotarv of the
treasury , ' .tho first comptrollernrst audi
tor , treasurer , or register to bo con
cerned in trade or commerce. By nee !
ossnry implication also this law permits
and authorizes the vice president to
continuo in any trade or comuiorco
which ho may bo engaged in when
Neither is there In the statutes of
common sonco any euch provision us
our contemporary would enforce upon
Mr. Morton. So long as the president
liven the vice prestdentlius no function ,
no power , and no duty , except to preside -
side in the sessions of the sennto , and
in cases no rare as virtually never to
occur , to glvo a casting vote there ; and
also to figure as a regent of the Smith
sonian institution. Thus there is no
official or political act of his which can
bo alfocted by the circumstance thr.t hu
is stockholder or partner in nny bust-
nobs. The proposition of tlio Epoch is
