4 lUnodwhcrf In Florida.
An old resident told a sojourner in
Florida the following story of aom
i anions and sanguinary dnels that occur
red there years ago : "In the Seminole
wAr," said Mr. Zabran, evidently arn
tiling down a well worn groove of eon
veraation, " Governor Call, of this State,
commanded a crock regiment. One
morning lip received a note announcing
that his wife was quite ill. Ho at once
repaimi to her bedside. During his
absence a battle was fought. Shortly
afterward an article appeared in the
(hronicle and Sentinel, of Augusta, in
sinuating that Governor Call had pur
posely alweuted himself from the battle.
The paper containing this cruel article
reached the camp aud waa at once the
subject of comment Lieutenant Au
gustus Alston determined, in the ab
sence of his colonel, to protect his honor,
mounted a horse and plunged through
flic woods for Augusta. Reaching that
city he made his way to the (Mront'r.V
office and demanded to know the author
of the offensive article. It turned out
that it was Governor lleed, of Florida,
for a long time a bitter political enemy
of Call's. Lieutenant Alston at once
sent him a peremptory challenge. Gov
ernor Ree replied that he would be
happy to accommodate Lieutenant Ala
♦oil with satisfaction as soon as he had
concluded an affair with Lieuteuant
Williams, of Call's staff, who had al
realy favored him with a note upon the
same subject. Alston thereupon had to
content his soul IU patience until the af
fair with Williams was over, lie did
not have to wait long. A meeting *-
soou arranged lietweeu levsl and Wil
liams, the couditi ma of which wen' that
they were to dght with bowie knives,
until one or the other should bo cut
down. At the meetiug the men came
tipou the ground, stripped to their
shirts. They advanced until they met
each other. They then clasped their
left hands together in a Arm and dead
game grasp, standing toe to toe. The
keen and sinning knives wen* then placed
iu their right hands. At a signal they
dropjHsl perpendicularlv along their
leg*. At the uext word tliey wen> ra.M\i
iuto tlie air, and then the terrible fenc
ing began. It was a brief, strenuous
struggle. The long knives cut and
gashed and wheeled through the flesh of
the combatants and clashed and sparkled
against each ether, now buried m vilai
tissue and now whipped out with a
dim, blueah moisture veiling the blades,
until at length Lieuteuant Williams
fell, hacked almost to pieces. Governor
Reed escaped without disabling injury.
" He then turned his attention to Lieu
tenant Alston. Being the challenged
party, he hail the choice of weapons.
He selected a murderous weapon, now
happily obsolete, but theu of common
use and knowu as a vagar. It was a
broad-mouthed, funnel-shaped, smooth
bore gun that **rriel a handful of shot
and was warranted to hit everything in
the neighborhood of its aim. The duel
■was a most unfortunate one in its direct
and remote results. Captain Keuon was
Lieutentant Alston's second. The
principals were posted with their hacks
to each other. As the word * wheel'
was called it is claimed that Alston
slipped and stumbled. Tlie command,
* Fire—one—two—three !" followed al
most immediately, and before he could
recover his gun went off into the air.
Governor Reed took cool aim, fired
promptly at the word, and Lieutenaut
Alston dropped de;ut Thus two gallant
young fellows had already fallen in
defence of the honor of an absent com
rade. But the cruel feud was hardly
opened. Colonel Willis Alston, then
living in Louisiana, heard of his brother's
death and became impressed with the
idea that he had not been fairly killed.
He claimed that Governor Reed should
have withheld Ms fire when he saw his
brother's gun spring aimless toward the
sky. Indeed, it is said that a sister of
Lieutenant Alston hail the lead taken
from iier brother's laxly and a new bul
let molded, which she sent to Colonel
Willis Alston and demanded that he
should come and avenge their brother's
death. Colonel Alston came as fast as
possible to this hotel. Governor Brown
met him as he rode up to the piazza anil
at once divined his purpose. * You have
come here to challenge Reed?' he asked.
Colonel Alston assented. Governor
Brown then l>egged him to be very
deliberate and cool and quiet about it
On the very night he got here he was
sitting near the fireplace yonder, with a
large cloak asoond him, and his head
bowed upon hie hand. He had been
sitting there only a few moments
when some one brushed past him rather
roughly. Raising his head he discovered
that it was Governor Reed, the very man
he had traveled so far to challenge to
deadly combat In an instant he was
ablaze with excitement and rising, ex
. laimed : 4 Yon have murdered my
brother, sir, and now do yon presume
to insult me ? Draw and defend your
self, sir.' As quick as thought Reed
drew a six-barrelled pistol and fired,
tearing away Alston's third finger, just
as the latter p ured a broadside into
him from a horseman's pistol, lodging a
ball in his side. The fire was repeated,
each man receiving another ballet
Colonel Alston was then ont of ammuni
tion, having only two horseman's pistols.
Throwing back his long cloak, however,
he drew his bowie and closed with his
antagonbt. In a few strokes Governor
Reed was cat to the floor, and his op
ponent sank in a fainting fit It was in
that melee that the ballet bole was male
"The two men were taken to their
beds, and for several weeks were con
fined to their rooms. Colonel Alston
was first to recover. H<* was much em
bittered by the contest that hal taken
place, and said that he intended to kill
Governor Reed on sight. A few days
afterward he met Governor Reed on the
street. He went home and loaded a
double-barreled shot gun, potting in
one of the barrels, it is said, the bullet
that his sister had moulded with the
lead taken from his brother's dead body.
Seeking Reed agaiD, he fired at him on
sight, tearing away his shoulder with
his first barrel anil riddling his heart
with the second. This rencuntre created
the intensest excitement and led to some
iegid proceeding against Colonel Alston,
which, however, did not result in any
thing. Colonel Alston shortly after this
went to Texas. He had been there but
a short time when he heard that Dr.
John McNeil Stewart, a man of promi
nence in Brazoria, had commented dis
paragingly upon his affair with Gover
nor Reed. Meeting Dr. Stewart upon
the prairie a few days after this report
had come to his ears, he handed him a
letter containing the offensive language
and asked him if he was responsible for
it. Pending the discussion of the mat
ter at issue they fell upon each other
with great furv! It appears that Dr.
Stewart was armed with a pair of Colt's
pistols and Colonel Alston witli a bowie
knife and shot gun. When found bv
their friends, Colonel Alston was found
lying at the foot of a large tree, with
four bullet holes through his body;
Stewart was lying near by, with two
loads of buckshot in his heart, stark and
stiff. Colonel Alston was so badly
wounded that he could only be carried
in a blanket, swung hammockwise be
tween two men. As he was being borne
into the town in this manner his friends
were met by a company of armed men,
who fired iOO shots into the blanket,
killing Colonel Alston instantly."

A Marriage That Created a Sensation.
Thomas Lord is an octogenarian mil
lionaire and the father of a family well
known in the canal world of New York.
He is nearly eighty-tlve years old, owns
very valuable teal estate near Wall
street, and is worth, according to moder
ate estimates, not tar from two millions.
He ha* been a widower onlv a few years,
and since Ins wife's death he has livisi
quietly iu the old family homo on Seven
teenth street, near Fifth avenue. As
might be supposed, considering his great
age, his health is quite feeble, and for
some time past he has not ventured out
w ithcut a companion.
Anuetta Wilnelmiiia Wilkens Hicks is
the famous "rich American widow,"
whose dinner* and receptions utlraeted
so much attention in London during the
past few vears. Probably the nuud
notable of these waa tier dinner in honor
of lien. I Irani some months ago, which
r<veivsl a great deal of newspaper uo
tioe. She is forty-eight years old, and a
woman of handsome aud commanding
presence. She has one residence in
New York and another iu lamdou, and
it has been her custom to alteruate fre
quently from tiue to the other. Her
first husband, whose name she has borue
since Ins death, was a wealthy Quaker,
of the family from which the Hickaitc
branch of the Society of Friends
took its name. He left her a large
fortune, which she has aiuoe been
atieuding quite freely iu lavish so
cial entertainment. Loudon goaaip
hail it, some time ago, that Mrs. flicks,
the dashing and wealthy widow, was
about to marry lieu. Scheuck. but that
seems to have la-en a mistake. She
returned to New York iu November, and
her reappeanutoe WHS hailed with satis
faction bv the society people who like
rtvepUou* and g-ssl dinner*. No one
had the slightest suspi>-nm, however,
that she ram* witli matrimonial inten
tion*. and if any one hail suggested a
probable alliance on her part with one
of the oldest men iu New York, the
ancient and iteorepid Thomas Lord, that
snggcatiiHi would have promptly lavn
writteu down as absurd. The three
sous of the old man have taken legal

prevent him from settling his fortune ou

A Chinaman's Freak.
A Chinaman can ride the walkiiijj
beaniof a steam engiue without losing hi*
head or his pig- tail. Engineer Golden,
of Virginia City, Nov., one night recent
ly. w as ou duty in a section of the works
underground, where stood a huge pump
ing engine and a tug air compressor. A
door at the head of a flight of stoue steps
hail opened several times and let iu cur
rents of cold air, which had chilled his
marrow; and each time he hail gone up
stair* and latched the door without dis
covering the intruder. Once more the
door swung open, and he started up the
steps witli a curse on his hps, when sud
denly he saw iu front of him the withered
face of an aged Cluniuusu, in whose eves
blazed the tires of opium audlietMt En
gineer Golden returned to the engiue
room and retreated around the pumping
apparatus. Scarcely hail he taken re
fuge behind that huge piece of machine
ry, when his midnight visitor appeared
at the foot of tlie stairway and glared at
him. Then the Chinaman started to
climb straight across the engiue toward
his euemv. Tlie engine was on the
down-stroke when he set out, ami before
he could get across, the walking-beam
carried him np toward the ooilmg. Bat
• lie was at home in the saddle, and seem
to enjoy the motion. Had he been two
feet nearer the bishop-head he would
have been crushed to death at the first
stroke of the pump. It cbaueed, how
ever, that tlie position he occupied was
about the only safe one on the whole
length of the beam, As the beam sawed
the air he sat composedly astride of it,
his long tail swaying in the air like a
pendulum. The engineer caught hold
of the Chmam&a's legs and attempted to
drag him from his perilous position, but
the fellow drew a double-edged knife,
with a blade some twelve inches in
length, which he began whirling abont
his head. Finally the engineer got an
iron rod, and with the end of it tickled
the Celestial gymnast in the ribs, mak
ing it so unpleasant for him that after
hacking the iron for a time with his
knife, he got off the beam about as he
Never be afraid of becoming an " old
maid," fair reader. An old maid is far
more honorable than u heartless wife,
and "single blessedness" is greatly
superior in point of happiness to wedded
life without love. " Fall not in love,
dear girls, beware," says the song. But
we do not aifreo *itli the song on this
question. Ou the contrary, we hold it a
good thing to fall in love, if the loved
object be a worthy one. To fall in love
with an honorable mau is as proper as
it is for an honorable man to fall in
love with an amiable and virtuous
woman ; aud what could be a more
gratifying spectacle even to the angels
in Heaven than a sight so pure—so ap
proaching in its devotion to the
No ; fall in love as soon as you please,
ladies, provided it be with a suitable
person. Fall in love and then marry ;
bnt never marry unless you do love.
That's the great point. Never marry
merely for a "home" or a husband.
Never degrade yourself by be- uning a
party to such an alliance. N ver sell
yourself body and soul, on terms so con
temptible. Love dignifies all things ;
it eunobles all conditions. With love
the marriage rite is truly a sacrament.
Without it the ceremony is a base fraud,
and the art a human desecration.
Marry for love or not at aIL Be an
"old maid," if fortune throw not in
your way the man of your heart, and
though tiie witness may sneer, and the
jester may laugh, y.m will still have
your reward in an approving conscience
and a comparatively peaceful life.
Slaughtering the Buffalo in Texas.
The Galveston Newt says; The town
of Griffin is supported by buffalo hunt
ers, and is their general rendezvous in
this section. The number oi hunters on
the ranges tliis season is estimated at
1,500. We saw at Griffin a plat of
ground of about four acres covered with
buffalo hides spread out to dry, besides
a large quantity piled up for shipment.
These hides are worth in this place from
$1 to $1.60 each. The generally accept
ed idea of the exciting chase in buffalo
hunting is not the plan pursued by the
men who make it a regular business.
They use the needle gnu with telescope,
bay powder bv the keg, their lead in
bulk and the shells, and make their own
cartridges. The guns in a party of
banters are used by only one or two
men, who say they usually kill a drove
of thirty or forty buffaloes on one or two
acres of ground. As soon as one is
killed the whole herd, smelling the blood
collect around the dead laxly, snuffing
ami pawing up the ground and uttering
a singular noise. The hunter continues
to shoot them down as long as lie can
remain concealed, or until the last animal

attention to the report of the gun, and
flees only at sight or scent of his enemy.
The others of the party then occupy
themselves in 44 peeling.'' Some of these
