the intentions of the Chinese. "If they

Maeon. "we will not quarrel with them
about it, for then we will be apared a

A Parisian duel, which nrcaHioned a
great w;nialioii at the time of its occur
rence, was one U-tween Henri Delagrave
and Alphonv) Riviere, the cause being
the success of the former in wooing a
young lady to w hom they were both at
tached. Riviere insulted Ins successful
rival by f-lappiog him on the cheek, and
it was agreed that a duel should take
place in w hich the life of one should be
The details were left to their seconds
to arrange, and until they faced each
other upon the field neither of the young
men knew in what form they were to
brave death. On the following morning
four men met in a quiet wood. They
were Riviere, with Monxieur Savalle, bis
second, Delagrave, who was accom
panied by a doctor named Rocquet.
The latter informed the rivals that Mon
sieur Savalle and himself had arrived at
the decision that, in order to secure
fatal result to one of the principals, it
would be best to leave out of the ques
tion swords and pistols, and to trust to
the more sure action of a deadly poison.
As he spoke he drew from hio pocket a
little box, in which lay four black pel
lets, all exactly identical in shape and
In one of these," he said, "I hare
placed a sufficient quantity of prusaio
acid to cause the almost instantaneous
death of him who swallows it. Monsieur
Savalle and I will decide by the toss of a
coin which of you ia to hae the first
choice, and you shall alternately draw
and swallow a pill until the poison
shows the effects."
While speaking the last words the doc
tor spun into the air a glittering gold
piece, and as it fell Savalle cried "Tail8.,,
It fell with the head uppermost, and

The two whose fate was contained In
those innocent looking black balls had
shown no signs of ire; : !;.iion, while the
doctor explained the- awful preparations
that he had made for the death of one of
them; and Delagrave's face was perfect
ly impassive as he selected and washed
down with a glass of claret one of the
"And now, Monsieur Riviere," said the
Riviere extended his hand and took a
pill, which he swallowed with as little
appearance of concern as his opponent.
A minute passed, two, three, and still
the duelists stood motionless.
"It is your choice again, Monsieur Del
agrave," said the doctor, "but this tim
you must swallow the pill at the same
instant as Monsieur Riviere swallows the
one you leave for him."
Delagrave paused for a moment, look
ing in silence at the two balls that lay
before him. The closest scrutiny showed
not the slightest difference between
them; one was harmless, but in the other
rested the pall of eternity the silence
and peace of that sleep that knows no
awakening in this world.
With a start he drew his eyes from the
box, and putting his finger and thumb
into it, drew forth one of the remaining
pills. Riviere took the solitary one re
maining, and both men simultaneously
gulped dow n their fate.
A few seconds passed without any per
ceptible movement on the part of either
of them, and then Riviere threw up his
hands, and, without a sound, fell fiat
upon the grass. He turned half round,
gave one convulsive shudder, and, as his
rival bent over him, breathed his last.
The fair cause of this awful tragedy was
bo horrified over it that she refused to sea
Delagrave again, and the memory of
those few minutes weighed so heavily
npon him that he foUowed Riviere to tha
grave in a few months time. Glasgow
