A i was a Coward to were Bot i oow1 Ards a so spake our Law Tutor Moses Drake and thus to continued to had graduated from Ilar Vard Laban and myself and had come fenced Trio practice of Law. We were neither of us married though to were anticipating that event. We had a Case in court a Caso of Adams was for the plaintiff and i for the defendant. It was a weak Aud foolish complaint and Adams should not have taken it up it was merely a Case of extortion. Trio plaintiff hold a Rod Over tho tack of the do fen danc in tho shape of a bit of knowledge concerning a private misstep of a former time and tho present complaint was Only a seemingly Legal Way in which that other Power was to be used for the purpose of opening a poor Man s purse. At the trial i exposed the trick and obtained tho ruling out by Trio court of a scandal which i Adunni i had planned to introduce As testimony. Of i was Severo and As my opponent had entered upon a very bad Case my utri Turos Cut Home. I gained tho verdict for my client Anu people laughed at tho foiled plaintiff and Spuke i glitzy of his lawyer. A thus it commenced. Adavis could riot forgive me for the Chagrin i had caused him. Lie had Laid it up against to and talked openly about being revenged. This was on the first of August. A month afterwards we Mot at a party who to the gent Lymun drank wino. L Ite in tho evening Adams and i lift and a third person made some remark upon tho old trial whereupon a fourth person said i had done a great thing. At this a Iiams flushed and made an impudent reply. Tho reply was addressed to to and i answered. The two outsiders laughed at the hit i had made and Adams said something Nior Severo than a before. I replied to him. Lie deliberately told to that i was a liar a a i had been drinking wine and my blood wits heated. As that harsh hard cowardly Yord fell upon my ear my passion of Arcamo me. I struck Laban Adams in tho face and knocked him Back against the Wall. It was a cowardly thing for to to strike him Thero in that qom Pauy but i was too much excited to reflect. I expected Adams would strike Bank but he did not. Was stronger than he though this consideration May not have influenced him. His friends Drew away Rind i went out into the open air. As soon As tho tool Brcek a fanned my brow Aud eased the heated blood away from my brain i was sorry for what i had Doue but it was too Lato to help the matter. I might have gone to Adams and asked him to Overlook the wrong i had done bub i had not the courage for that it / 1 a on tho following morning , named Watkins called upon to and presented a note from Laban Adams. I opened it and found it to to a Challenge. I requested to give satisfaction for Trio blow Iliad struck. If i was a gentleman i would do so. If i was willing i might designate the time and place and select the weapons. A what should i do ?. What 1 ought to do was very Plain the lessons of life which by fond Mother had taught to did not a Oava to in doubt. I ought to have gone to Adams and made such an offer of conciliation As Nogent Lemorin May honorable make to another and if to rejected that i could Havo simply turned from and refused to do a further wrong to right the Wfong already Dono. Bufe a had not the courage to do that i was a Coward. I feared that my friends would laugh at m e and that Quot the Especial friends of Adams would Point at to the Finger of scorn so in tho cowardice of Noy heart i thought i would be Brave before the world and i accepted the Challenge. Trio sooner it is Over Trio better remarked Watkins. 1 Cert Brinly i responded. A let it be on this very Day at Sunset upon tho River a Bank directly beneath the Lyli Ito heart ledge. I will Send a Friend to you to make further a and tho weapons a a a pistols and so it was fixed. An hour afterwards a found John Primo a Young physician who agreed to act As by second. He did not urge to to abandon tho idea nor did he in Tomilio work As though he loved it but to did it because he fancied that i was determined and in Case of to rident his professional service might be of value. I knt a a that Adams was a Good shot Atud he know that i was the same for we had practice much together so that there was no advantage to Vithor party in the weapons. After dinner. Price Camo to me and told me All was arranged. Everything had Boon fixed of i had planned and Adams and his second would to on the ground at tho appointed time a after Price had Gono i sat Down a and wrote two letters. What a Coward 1 was to write to them. Oho was to my Mother and the other to tho gentle being who had promised to to my wife. As 1 sit now and think of that hour i shudder with horror tho hour i wrote to my Mother and what about to do to Fob them of All earthly Joy forever and for what ? because i had not the courage to be a bold Frank Man to obey my god and tho Laws of my country i was to Bow before a wicked spirit a to offer my blood to Folly and my hand to murder a White heart Lego was a Light perpendicular Wall of Granite rising above the River the top crowned with dark Spruce Trees. It received its name from a Peculiar Mark where a mass of White Quartz appeared half Way up the Lego in the form of a heart. A late in the afternoon i was upon the Sandy Shore beneath the ledge and almost at the same time Laban Adams made his appearance. We. Were both anxious to be thought Brave men. Lie did not speak to me. Our seconds conferred awhile together and then Price came to my Sido. A. 4 must things go on a i told him i did not know How it could to stopped. I lied for i did know. He informed to that if i would Mako tho lease of Torturo of period to Felt sure that Adama would accept it. A i think lie said a that Adams is sorry for what has happened. You struck him and to cannot 4 and to called to a liar 1�?T a 1 know he did and i know he did wrong fun fact there was wrong upon both sides a offer him your hand and i think he will take it without no i would not do it and Why not ? i wanted to do it my heart urged to t. The spirit of my dear Mother speaking in Elioso old lessons of love and Blessing urged me to do it. God spa aking through Llis son urged me do do it. The Law of the land urged me to do it. And yet i would not. 1 Vas afraid that men would by i was a Coward. 0, what a precious Covard i was 1 a i a you arc both Good shots added Prico a a and if you fire Togo Thor you May both but i dared not offer tho hand of conciliation. I told him i was ready lie went Back to Watkins and pretty soon they measured Oft tho Groin do twelve paces. We were to stand Hack to Back those twelve prloc9 a print. We of arc to turn at tho word one we were to raise it tho word two and at the word three we wore to fire. I caught the Eye of Laban Adams As i took my position and i was sure no angry past d on dwelt therein. For an instant tho impulse was in me to drop Niy Pic Tol and offer him my hand i was sure he would not refuse me. But i had not tho courage to do it. I would rather do Trio deep damning wrong than do that simple Christian act of love., a our seconds As though they saw Flint was passing in our thoughts but to offered no word and they proceeded. Tho word one was Given. I cannot Tell the foe Ings that come crowding upon to Attlio to moment. I st of face to face with my Brothers in a moment More to were to offer our hands to the infernal strains i thought of the holy love thet Hau beamed upon me Sinco i had grown to Many a estate and i thought that in one Short moment More tho Black pall might cover it All. A Watkins was a Long time in pronouncing the word two. Lie evidently hoped that Ono of us would relent but to hoped in Only a breath held Back the last fatal word but that word was never spoken. As we raised , a Sharp agonized cry from a breaking Hoart burst upon the air and in another moment two Light shadows flitted upon the scene. I was to prisoners Laban Adams was a prisoner. Our pistols a. Undischarged upon the ground. Two gentle Maidens who loved us botnet than to loved stir solves and whose love had led them to deep anxiety in our behalf had guessed our secret. Love has Sharp Clara Wolcott knew Laban shot temper when under Strong excitement and she feared something of tins kind from the first. She had Only to whisper her suspicion to Mary and two sleepless sentinels were upon us. These two Wierm spirits with their cries and their tears Tel trip the Joy crust and our hearts found the surface a 0, in gods name to enemies no Mure a implored Clara. A a by the love you Bear me by tho memory of All you hold dear on Earth and All you Hope to meet in heaven cast Forth the Demon from your heart prayed Mary. In an instant a resolved to to a with the arms of my beloved still encircling to i stretched Forth my hand but i was Notin Advance of Laban. As thou gli one spirit had moved us our hands met Piid Way. A 4 i Hove Boon a fool said Laban. ,. 4 and i have been a fool and a Coward be Causo i dared not do right.�?T. A a a 4 Aye i added 4 had it not been for those blessed Angels we might have been something ,. To returned from the dark Grovind just As tho Day was softening into Twilight and from Liat hour Laban a Lams and myself were vast friends and Thoy who had saved us from great crime entered upon tho life path with us and have blessed us Ever since. Avaio ranks the now York Herald publishes the following anecdote. It relates it As a matter of history when general Grant was about to Leavo Washington to enter upon that Sublime Campaign which began with the Battle of tho wilderness and ended with the Dowhal of Trio rebellion he called upon Secretary Stanton to say Good Bye. The Secretary was anxiously awaiting him. During the two and Adial years that president. Lincoln and Secretary Stanton had managed tho Eastern armies it was the firsts Point in their plans to keep Washington heavily garrisoned with troops. Large bodies of men were stationed in the fortifications around Trio City and other Large bodies were kept in supporting distance. Now that Grant had come into Power Stanton wanted to see that the defence of Washington was not overlooked. Accordingly after a few preliminaries the Secretary remarked4 Well general i suppose you left us enough men to strongly Garrison the forts a 4 no said Grant coolly 41 can to do that 4 Why not a cried Stanton jumping nervously about. 4 Why not Why not a 4 because i have already sent the Mou to tho front . A that wont do cried Stanton 91010 nervous than before. 4 its contrary to my plans. Ill order them 4 i shall need them there answered Grant 4 and you can to order them 4 Why not a inquired Stanton again. A Why not Why not a. 4 i believe that i rank tho Secretary in tho matter was the Quick reply. 4 very Well said Stanton a Little warmly 4 we of la Seo. Tho president about that. Ill have to take you to the president.�?T. A that a right / politely observed Grant 4 tho president ranks us a arrived at the White House the general and the Secretary asked to see tho president upon important business and in a Lew moments tho Good hearted face of or. Line la appeared. A Ltd it. A Well a gentlemen said tho president with a genial smile 4 what do you want with me v 4 general said Stanton stiffly 4 Stato your 4 f have no Caso to state 4 in a satisfied As it is thus out flanking the Secretary and displaying tho same strategy in diplomacy As in War. 4 Well we said the president laughing get 4 Stato your enso Secretary. A Secretary Stanton obeyed general Grant said nothing the president listened very attentively. When Stanton had concluded the president Rob cd his legs rested his Elbow on Liis Kuco twinkled his eyes Yuri fitly and said. A 4 now Secretary you know we have been trying to manage this army for two years and a half and you know to Haven t done Nizich with it. To sent Over the mountains and brought mister Grant As mrs. Grant Calls him to manage it for us and now i guess we had better let mister Grant have his own from this decision there was no nobody ranked tho president. So general Grant went off with tho army and Secretary Stanton went Back to his office.
