MANY DUELS ARE FOUGHT IN PARK French Still Settle Their Feuds by Means of Guns or Swords PARIS Oct 5 wlion hot hasty words led to flashing rapiers or gleaming pistols on the dueling ground are not yet over for the gentlemen of Paris During a recent month seven af fairs of honor were settled on the sward under the gray light of dawn at various secluded spots within the neighborhood of the capital ac cording to Jean TosephRenaud wellknown French fencer Joaeph Renaud assisted at one ol the duels with rapiers Both partisans re ceived severe wounds before honor was declared satisfied Pistols Are Poised The favorite dueling ground for the polished blades French so ciety is tho historic Pare dus Princes There as the cold daylight creeps up from tho east shadowy figuresmay be seen moving among the trees towards the chosen duelists seconds doctors and anx ious friends A few minutes later the pair face one another coals off shirts open sleeves rolled rapiers or pistols poised Four or five duels are fought every mouth on the average muny of them in private grounds where there is not the remotest fear of the police intervening since dueling ii officially forbidden Sometimes a few scattered members of the public succeed in being present but that is more often when the quar rel is a public one perhaps the out come of a clash of words in the readers columns of a newspaper Most

ap pease wounded honor and preserve boiling blood from being spilled in atonement Only the bitterest feuds end in where an apology is refused or the words of offense are repeated In the old days milady used to encourage her courtier to defend her honor in this gentle manly way but nowadays women arc opposed to dueling perhaps be cause men are scarce enough in France as it iri Roads Used 20

they were charged with electricity during li storm last August Dr William G Wilson or nithologist will tell the United States Department Agriculture in a report which he is preparing More than 5000 dead birds were reported to have been found on a farm a short distance from this city and more than 1100 on another farm following the storm accord ing to Dr Wilson I have never heard of n case of this kind before Dr Wilson said and it may not happen again in a thousand years but I believe that it is worth reporting to federal ex perts In my opinion only birds roost ing on smooth barked trees were electrocuted when unusual atmos pheric conditions charged the lives with electricity I believethat this j kind of a tree is a conductor of electricity during a storm because water can not be absorbed making the tree attractive to the electrical charge The charge was not strong enough to kill any but the smallest birds however since no large ones were found to have been victims of this wholesale electrocution tho doctor declared Accepts ISw Iosilion EAGLE GROVK Oct Black former manager of lhe Ea gle Grove Ice company left with his family Wednesday for Los Angeles Cal where lie has
