1,xtensive Fire in Charlesto.
lietvoe) l0 and 11 o'clock Satur
day night a fire was discovered in the
rear of Madson's Tobacco Store,
opposite the- 0harles

soine time ago. As usual, the alarm
was not given by belli until, some
time afte-r the fir6 Was ascertained,
and when the engio-ch arrived 'on the
ground mattei's 'had taken a serious
turn. The buildings occupied by
Madsen, ani Lengniek, dealer in
Millintary, were so burnt that nothing
but a shell of them is left. The build.
ing occupied by H'. B. Stoddard
& Co., Wholsalo Shoo Dealors, next
door, was badly injured. Madsen's
stock ihich ho valued at $7,500, was
insured for 6,00 in Ravonal, Huger
& Co.'s Agency, and Longniek's for
5,000 in A. L. Tobias' Agency, which
covers his loss. The stores they o..
cnpied were owned by Jennings,

for $5,000-$2,000 in . the London,
Liverpool and Globo Company, and

not suffer at all.
It is the general' opinion of those
who saw the condition of affairs in
the early stage of the fire, that it was
in act of incendiarisin, and one that
ought to be rigidly invobtigated.
Singular Case of Female Ativetnure, De
votion and Death.
One of the 'most remarkable in
stanceos of woman's attachment to
man and heroism under adversity
came to our notice to-day. To be.
gin at the conmonoemont, we will
state that. in 1860, a young lady in
the city of Auburn, N. Y., the daugh
ter of wealthy paronts, eloped with a
yotng man named Niles, a railroad
enginoer, and both proceeded to
Cleveland, Ohio, and afterwards to
Toledo. They were pursued by an
infuriated brother of the young lady
and in the latter place, to avoid do
toetion, tafter the snarriasge ceremony
haud beeni perfor med, the young lady
arrayed horseltf in male attire. In
this udis.guiso', and while selling ap
pioe, slie passed her brother several
tin..s on th la treet without recognition
on his pat. Shortly afterward early
in the~ war, the two wecnt south to
Nashville, Tennessee, where Niles
procured employmnent as a locothotive
enginaeer, his wifto engaging as fire
man, still keepling up her disguise.

of' travelling they 'returnaed to Cloves

Caniada attracted them thither, and
the wife accompanied .her husband,
'still in masculine garments. The
vicissitundes of her career, oxposed to
hardships and ace~idents, were too so
yore, however, and a few weeks since
sho died at. Cleveland, after a brief
illnaess. Niles, who is now in this
eity, is a man about 40 years of ago
and does not refer to the heroic de'
votion of his wife but in terms of the

few days ago. For some time past
he had no'iced a very great diminu.

by his cows. Oin making inquiries
into the causo, of the woman who bad
charge of the cows, she accounted fi
It by stating that the milk was sucked
from the cows by a litter of pigi that
stayed at night in the same yard In
which the cows were kept. This im
probable story only flxed deeper in
his rnind the suspicion that the wo.
man was using the milk for her own
purposts. 8he persistinig, though, in
her rtory, he went to his cow lot ear
ly In the mnornir.g, and there he found
the cows. ly ing quiet ly on thr ir sides,
and the pigs tuvging away for their
bi eakfnst. Afterwards, when the
cows wOre standing up, he saw tli
pigs running aroand and under
them, jumping up, and doing all
they could to reach the teats.
