For Sale is a Full Page Drawing taken from "The Bystander," April 12th, 1905, showing "A Fatal Fencing Accident in a French School." Artist- Frederic Regaincy.
One of the best Fencing Schools in France was the scene, the other day, of a Fatal accident. Two good Fencers were having a bout with the epee. During the combat, one of the men threw himself forward on to the point of his adversary's steel, which pierced the stiff jacket, and entered his Chest. Accidents of this sort are exceedingly rare, only four or five of them having happened in fifty years.
