THINKS OF VETERAN BOARDER
He Beta Forth a In pie Ilale
tha Galdance of the Inti.
"How true It If," said th veteran
boarder, "that w never know when we
are well off.
'This is particularly true of Uf In
boarding houses. We think how much
better tho food and cooking and the serv
ice might be In the place where we are,
never thinking how much poorer we might
find them elsewhere.
'At the same time there are certain
things that It Is wise to consider in the
selection of a boarding house, on of these
concerning the bounteousnens of the table.
You cannot live by dlahes alone; you must
have food; a pretty table would little
please If there were on It nothing to eat;
and so I suppose It will be conceded that
In choosing a boarding place th question
of whether we would get enough to eat
or not would be an Important, If not In
deed the primary, consideration.
"Fortunately there Is a simple way by
which we can determine this before taking
board permanently. Appearances are de
ceitful and we may sometimes be misled;
but this simple way that I will now de
scribe to you will at least serve as a use
"If you ar wise you will eat a sample
dinner In the house in advance, pending
negotiations; and If you find the meat
portions served generous and the vege
tables served to you In dlahes from which
you help yourself to so much as you
desire, It Is a fair presumption that In
this house you would get enough to eat.
The meat portions might not be very
large, but If they wer of fair dfmenslons
and the vegetables were still served so
that you could help yourself to whatever
you wanted, and the bread supply was
ample, why, then you might consider
that here you would get enough to eat;
but If the vegetables are served to you In
little side dishes, containing portions
dished out In the kitchen, why, then It I
your own fault If you go astray.
"To be sure, the portlona In the little
dishes may be generoua, but It Isn't in
reason to expect that they would be.
Dished up In the kitchen, where the rule
la economy, aa In truth It haa to be. for
there I none too much profit In the
boarding house business, even at Its best,
there 1 a natural tendency to be skimpy
In the spoonfuls, and to put not too many
of them In a dish. In tha kitchen they
can keep control of what goes on the
table and make a amall aupply auffioe
for many board era, by the simple ex
pedient ot dividing It up Into aa many
portlona aa may be required to make It
go around. In ahort, where you can help
yourself you get all you want; wher you
ar helped In the kitchen you may get all
you want or you may not.
"So, In choosing a boarding place note
for one thlnsr. and I should say the firat
thing. In wtiat manner the vegetables
are aerved, and If they ar put on the
table In Individual portlona In little dlnhea,
why, then you want to look out; and If
you have any question about the slxe of
the portions you had better give yourself
the benefit of the doubt.
"A simple rule thla may aeem to be,
but aa to whether the table Is generously
supplied or not all experienced boarders
find a sur guide In what comes In th
llttl dishes." New York Sun.

Thirty Dnels Fongbt There.
More than thirty duels were fought on
thla fatal spot. Aa early a a 1S14 Cantaln '
Edward Hopklna of Maryland, then an
iralgn of infantry, was slain here In a
duel with swords. On Februat-y (I, 1S19, a
rtei-perate and fatal duel was fought here
between two famous Virginians, both of
the F. F. V. pedla-ree General Mason,
formerly Cnlted states senator, and Colonel
John M. McCarty. They were second
cousins, but had quarreled over politics.
McCarty first challeneged Mason, but
Maaon declined on account of the condi
tions. Afterward, when Mason waa riding
through Richmond, Va., in a stage, with
General Andrew Jackson of Tennessee, the
general told Mason he should now chal
When McCarty received the challenge he
accepted and named the conditions, that he
and Mason should leap together from the
great dome of the capltol, 210 feet above
the ground. Theee terma were declined aa
against the code duello. Then McCarty
proposed bowle knlvea, close range, which
was also declined. The next proposition
was muskets loaded with buckshot, ten
feet apart. These terms Mason accepted.
At 8 a. m. Mason and McCarty met on this
fatal field. At first fire Mason fell dead,
and McCarty was severely wounded on the
rtght arm, but recovered disabled for life.
Admiral Decatur Killed.
The next most famous duel was on March
C 1830, between Admiral Stephen Decatur
and James Barron, a commodore of the
navy. Admiral Decatur was then In the
full vigor of his manhood and at the senith
of his fame. The cause of this duel was
In 1807 Commodore Barron was In com
mand of th United States frigate Chesa
peake. On meeting the British ship Leo
pard h allowed several of his seamen,
claimed aa British deserters, to be taken
from his deck without firing a gun, and
this waa one of the Incidents that brought
on the war of 1812 between the United
State and England. Admiral Decatur was
chosen by the secretary of the navy as
one of the members of the court-martial
that found Commodore Barron guilty. After
the court-martial Barron challenged Ad
miral Decatur to deadly combat. This duel
was fought with pistols, eight paces apart.
Both fired at th same Instant and both
fell at first fire.
Admiral Decatur died at 11 o'clock that
night, but Barron recovered. A leading
Washington paper printed th following
the next morning:
"Commodore Stephen Decatur, the pride
of his country, the noble-hearted gentle
man, la no more. Mourn, Columbia, for
one of thy brightest stars Is set."

Dueling originated in the age of chivalry.
Chivalrous duel, however, were seldom
fatal, as knight fought each other In full
armor of steel. Neither did they have any
Ananias clubs In the fourteenth century,
and It was dangerous to fight duels either
with lance or broadsword.
In 1380, 829 years ago, a duel was fought
at Westminster, England, between a knight
nd a squire, both In full armor. They
became so exhausted that when thoy
closed and fell they had to be lifted from
the ground by their seconds, on account uf
that tired feeling." The next day the
squire died from exhaustion, and the chron
icles of the period wrote: "He died to the

Great Tobacco Mart.
But old Bladenshurg, that was once a
smart town with 1,500 people, has other re
nown besides bloodahedding. It was a
great tobacco mart long before the war of
the revolution, when the eastern branch of
the Potomac was navigable, and sloops and
hips loaded tobacco on the docks at Iilad
ensburg to, make sail direct to Liverpool,
across the Atlantic.
At Bladenshurg still stands aa a live host
elry th "George Washington hotel," that
ha been kept continuously as a hotel for
177 years. It Is a two-story brick struc
ture, plastered and painted white, with a
projecting balcony on second story and a
largo board sign swung In front, with a
faded and battered head, of the Immortal
George, that looks to be at least 100 years
old. A tower projecta above the cen'er
roof, on which la painted in bold, black
letters: "Georg Washington Hotel. Eatab
