became desperate. It seemed to annoy him
to think that a little fellow from Sumter,

his desperation he sought the aid of a de
vice unknown hitherto in the field. I am
almost ashamed to tell on him, but in order
to forewarn others of his friends, I must let
the cat out of the bag. The trick was avery
simple one. While I slept, he emptied the

substituted therefor a lot of slugs of lcad.

a device to whip me out. It gratifies me to
