A few minutes after 12 the door wns  thrown   open   liy  n   servant,  and  the  rlnn win. had fought many duels, aft-    la(i*v' *X0Wml l"i������ Hie apartment. Every  er having safely come out of his fifteenth encounter determined to retlro  from the field. Ou doing this he resolved lo give a banquet to those only  who could prove that they bad participated in at least five duels. Selecting  three of his frieuds, all of whom were  entitled under the condition to an invitation, .he asked them to examine  the credentials of those who claimed  the right to he present.  As I have said, the count proposed to  retire   after   Ills   fifteenth   encounter.  Some said ttint at his twelfth he had  shown a lack of nerve, which was re-!  pea ter and gi''������*r upon him in Ills sub- |  sequent encounters, nnd that the reu- I  son why lie intended to retire was that j  lie dare not continue in ihe Held.   Ills -  twelfth meeting was -with n more boy :  barely  eighteen years old.   The chat- .  lenge was sent with n statement that]  the count  had  killed  the challenger's  brother.   Whether it was ihe youth of  EVERT MAN EOSR.  this his twelfth adversary or the circumstance of that adversary's figuring  to avenge his brother or some superstition no oue knew, but Menneiuek  showed tin extreme distaste for killing  the boy, intending to pink hiiu. But  the youth fought so desperately that  the count was finally obliged to run  him through to save his own life. The  youth did not die, but it was said that;  ho would never recover from his  wound.  All these facts and e'ueouuters were  the talk of Vietiuu. and never was  there so much interest manifested in  any function as "the Immortal's" banquet celebrating his retirement from  the field Iu which he had so long held  the most conspicuous place. Kor two  ��������� months the committee examined credentials. Among the applicants was  oue woman. She had been out only  once, but claimed that for a woman to  fight a duel with a man was equivalent  to the record of "the immortal" himself. She declined to appear before  the committee, but siijt a certificate  of a physician' who had attended her  after her encounter in which she had  been wounded. The committee, all of  whom were gallant gentlemen, unanimously voted to udmit the applicant.  When the evening for the banquet  arrived Count Meunerzek received his  guests in an anteroom communicating  with the banquet hall. He looked  about as if for some one and said:  "But 1 have been told that 1 am to  entertain a lady.' 1 don't see her."  "She wrote, count," said one of the  invitation committee, "that since a  woman would be out of place among  so many men she would merely appear for a few minutes after coffee  is served."  The host led the way into the banquet room nud stood nt his seat at the  head of the table flanked by a man on  his right who had fought the next  greatest number of duels���������thirteen���������  and on his left by oue who had fought  the next number���������eleven. The others  were arranged In accordance with  their records. Oue seat was not occupied -thnt at the end of the table  opposite the count. It was reserved for  the lady.  For three hours there was the hum  of conversation, naturally about the  encounters of the conversers. while  tbe popping of corks represented those  contents wherein pistols or rlllefl had  been used. In several cases men met  men who hnd been adversaries. It  was singular to hear them discuss In  a friendly way combats in which they  had tried to kill each other. Then  there were those who hud fought and  hnd never been reconciled. Despite  the Injunction nt the host thnt every  man should be every .other man's  friend some of these glared nt one another as though they would Hue lo go  out again and settle their quarrel. One  couple attempted to leave the room  for such a purpose, but found themselves locked In. The count hud foreseen that the meeting of so many men  who hnd so often fought might kindle  anew some smoldering (lame and bad  token the necessary precautions.  Coffee had been brought on nnd had  been dmnk and still the one guest  In whom was felt more Interest than  in nn tne rest rc^t-ruei m.i nor iippeiu*.  .Meunerzek, whose spirits were.ul the  highest, called oul to I lie cu in m it tecum n who Iitid told him l lie lady would  ,1oIn them at c-oil'ee to know why she  did uot appear.  "I told her. count." was ihe reply,  "thnt I could not name the exact lime  toffee would be served, but I thought  it would be ul 12 o'clock. She will  be here lit thai hour."  There was soineililiig In this fighting woman coiine-ied with the witch-  lug hour of night that added to the  zest of her expected entrance.

It was evident that  she hail been beautiful and that her  beauty had been lost by sorrow, for  her 1',-ice bore unmistakable signs of  having suffered She advanced to the  vacant chair at the end of the table  opposite Hie host, and as she seated  herself the others resumed their chairs.  .Meanwhile tlie expression on the  count's face changed to one of serious  nnd eager curiosity. He was the first���������  naturally the first since he wus the  last-to speak.  "Your face Is familiar to me, madam.  May 1 ask where I have met youV"  The answer came Icy cold:  "On the field.    It's to my encounter  with  you   that   I   am   entitled   to  tbe  honor of a place among you here."  "Pardon me;  I have never fought n  i woman."  ���������-you fought one you thought to be a  beardless boy.    I was that boy."  The count started. A slight pallor  overspread his face. The woman con  tinned:  "Tbe duel you fought before that,  count, was with my husband the day  after our marriage. I offered my for  tune to any man who would kill you  One tried to oblige me. hnrMost his  life in doing so. Then I felt that It  was my own time to act. Personating  the brother of this man who tried to  avenge me, 1 challenged yon and was  carried otf the field, as it was supposed, mortally wounded."  There was a pause. The clock on  the mantel ticked loudly in the other  wise sileut room. Then the woman  continued:  "As you see. I recovered. I ������as plan  uing further effort to punish you for  your many crimes when I heard that  you were about to retire from the dueling Held. 1 secured an iuvitation here  iu order that you might grace your retirement with one more victim. I have  a proposition."  The count continued to stare at his  only woman guest, but did not speuk.  "Ciontlemcn," continued tlie lady, "I  have no formal challenge for our host.  I simply request that we be furnished  with pistols and that some one of your  number will give us a signal. We can  do so as we sit and with a large number of expert witnesses to see fair  play."  No one spoke for a few moments:  then the man on the host's right said:  "Gentlemen, you hear the lady's proposition. It seems lo me that we are  in honor bound to accord her the opportunity she asks provided our host consents to her terms."  "1 will not light a woman," said the  count, almost with a groan.  "You Khali tight a woman." said the  lady, "or 1 will post you as a coward  all over the capital."  All looked toward the count. It  seemed that he read the hand of fate  in the coming of this woman whose  life lie had wrecked He sat irresolute, as if trying to make up his mind  what to do, whether to sacrifice her  or himself. There were too many witnesses for 111 tn to act any other part  than that of a man. He could not kill  a woman before them, especially one  he had so injured. If he did not kill  her she would kill him. lie must accept oue or the other of these alterna-  t ives.  "Come, count." snid his friend on  his right, "what Is your decision?"  "Bring ihe pistols," he replied in a  scarcely audible voice.  A smile of triumph lighted the face  of his adversary.  One of the guests who wns to stand  as second in an affair to come off in  the early morning had a case of dueling pistols within reach.    They were  C. B. F1Z12R, Mt.

Tliere Is an old superstition which  dies hard, and that is that the position of tlie horns of the new moon  tells what the weather will be. If the  horns of the crescent are on the same  level it will hold water, nndi heuce it  is" a dry moon, but if it is tipped up  then the water will run out, aud it is  a wet raoou.  One thing has helped keep this belief alive. Tbe moon is "dry" in the  part of the spring that is usually fair,  while it is' "wet" during the season of.  autumn rains.  If this were a mire sign of the  weather we could have our predictions published many years in advance, for uu astronomer can-predict  the exact position of t he moon at any  time iu the future.  The cause for tbe different positions  of the cresceut is'siruple. The moon is  south of the sun In the autumn and  north of it in spring. The crescent is  found by the light of the sun falling  ou the moou, and the horns are naturally In a Hue perpendicular to the direction of the sun from the moon.  That is all there is to this old superstition.  Miss Ella Muriel Wood, ef Brownsville, Ont., lays ; " Two years ago I was  going into a decline.

This change has been brought  about wholly by the use of ORANGE   LILY.  In addition I have had the Jjrlvllege and pleasure of Inducing multitudes of other suffering women to give ORANQE  LILY a trial, and have received thousands of enthusiastic acknowledgments of the blessings It lias brought to them. The  following Is a sample:  Truro, N. S., April 5, 190������.  Dear Mrs. Cnrrah,���������Your very kind letter was received yesterday. In reply to your question about my health, I am  thankful to say that 1 am very well. As I have never given  you a statement of my case you may be Interested In It.  For several years I have suffered untold agony. This suffering was continuous,  but I would have violent attacks every few weeks, each attack lasting several  days. Tho first Sunday In November, I felt the pain increasing and so did not go  to prayers. The rest of the family did go, and soon after the forcing down palne  selted me and I had to remain on the floor until their return. I was In great  pain all night and waavvcry sick for a whole week.  Then Mrs. L. came to see-me and told,me of your wonderful medicine. I got  my husband to send for It right away, as I was too. sick to write myself. (My  doctor could do nothing for me.) I have used 5 boxes of ORANGE LILY, have  had three months of good rest, and am now well, never better In my life. I have  r.ot had the old pains since. I often ask my husband if It Is myself that Is going  around and doing my own work. J can scarcely believe It. It brings tears-of Joy  to my eves.   I could shout It to all the world.   I cannot spoak enough In Its praise.  Your friend, MBS. E. H. P.  Receiving as I do, dozens of such reports each day, I feci Impelled to make>  known to my suffering sisters the merits of ORANGE LILY. It differs from  other so-called remedies In that It Is not taken Internally. It Is a strictly local  treatment and Is applied directly to the;affected organs. Its curative element!  arc absorbed Into the congested tissues, expelling the stagnant forolgn matter ���������  which has been Irritating the membrane and oppressing the nerves, and a grow,  mg feeling of? physical and mental relief is noticeable almost from the starl. It  Is a positive, scientific remedy, and even If you use no more than tho Free Trial  treatment  you  will  be very  materially benoflted.  FREE TRIAL.
