youii" soldiers one I mm Georgia und
Ihe ot. n i Iioiii Mississip)i who were
spcciall;, energetic in their attentions,
and inai keu had this become that
those pit-sent watched tho play with
constantly increasing interest, fully
believing thai both exhibited a case of
love at lirst sight. This sunniso on
tiie part ol those present was ouly too
title, us the tragic event which follow
ed fully proved. The Ueorgiun seemed
to huve tlie lead on tho Mfasissippian,
and when the dancers were culled to
take their places he led tho bello of
the vulley to u place in the set. At
this point the Mississippiau was seen
to upproaeh tho couple and heard to
claim the Italy's hand for tho dance.
An alU reulioii ensued, but both wero
cool, brave soldiers-- two of tho best
ahot.s in thearmy wbodid not believe
hi u war of words. So it was ended by
JlieUeorgian dancing with the ludvand
flip significant reiniii k of the Missis
aippiiiii, "J will see yon ufter tills sot."
V In-ii the ilaiico was pver (.ho Ueor
gian was seen to seek tho Mlssissip
pian, and together they called each a
trie ml from the crowd and departed.
When oulsiilu both claimed that an
iiiKiilJ. hail been ptLSsi.'d which could
only he wiped put in tho blood of (,hc
other, and that u duel to the death
should be arranged at once. A full
moon was iiisv appearing ui
tell you this talk of blood in the si
lenco of the night wits anything but
pleasant, jso iirgutiiont, however,
won Itl avail with liicso men, so it was
arranged that tlie duel should take
place on top of Blue Hidgo, near
the center of the road that passes
through the gap; that the weapons
should bo pistols at til' teen paces, and
to lire nt or between tho words, "one.
two, tiii'i.i, " llrjiig fo coutiuuo until
one or both were dead.
The point was reached, tho ground
measured oil', and tho men took their
positions without a tremor. Tho moou
gliod its pale light on u soeno never to
be forgotten. A moment or two, and
tho silence was broken by tho signal:
"One, two, three." At tlo word "ono"
the report of two pistols rung out on
the midnight air, but tho principals
inniiilaiiicil their respective positions.
The Georgian's left arm was seen to
drop closer to his side, but the Mis
sissippiau was immovable, and still
held his pistol to the front. Again a
Eistoi snot was hea.nl, coming from
io Ucorglnn, and thg Mississippian
till held his position, but did not lire.
The Georgian protested that ho hud
not come thero to murder him, but
no answer was returned. Tho Mis
lissippian'ssecond approached his prill
cip.-il and found liiin dead, shot
through the eye on tho llrst discharge
of the, weapon. Heath, it seems, hod
been instantaneous, so much so as not
even todisturh his equilibrium. I may
lorgel some things, but tho midnight
duel on the top of a spur of tho lilue
Ridge, with its utlcudant circum

"KffliiR ' P a Skeleton.
Dr. .lames Kurd, one of tho pioneers
of Wabash, lud., reports tho finding
of a skeleton on his residence lot in
Ibis city The bones were struck while
workmen were enuraged in uiakiuirex
cavations for a sewer, und wero about
twenty inches below tho surface in
compact clay soil. The skull was re
moved and cleaned. Examination
shnwi il that the sutures had ossilied
and the teeth gone, nl lowing tho jaws
to lock logi-lher. The teeth had evi
dently fallen out before death. AJlof
the Is s -ire very fragile The first
poriu f theskeleton struck by the
spade was the neck. Tho frame lay
bn an opposite direction from the
course of the ditch, tho skull just
le.-ielini'r the edge of tho excavation.
D- I' onl is of tho opinion that the
body was buried fully eighty years
airo, and the remains are thoso of
ui liiiii.iii advanced in years. Tho
shape nl tho skull indicates that it be
longed to one of tho aborigines. The
fore part is low and sunken and the
tuck protrudes, indicating a prcdom

We presume Asheville nan more eomnietits
passed upon it than any other city in the
State. They say "Such elegant buildings,
sueli line house, and uch splendid fiwd."
Hotels, bonrdtnK houses aud private families
arc often asked by their visitors "Where do
you nor to make such elegant bread ?"
"Why, at Cooikt's, where the lest of every
thing can Ik- had in the way of Groceries."
Our aim is to furnish the purest and liest
goods for the least money, to wage bitter
war against all adulterations of food prod
ut ts and never buy ehenp groceries lor the
purpose ni selling below cost.
