A SCHIKEN TEEF.
Stop thief : Stop thief ! Bang! were r
be sounds that rang out upen the still- f
ess of last Wednesday night in the vi- I
inity of the Baptist church. Imme- I
iately afterwards the sounds of rapid- z
9 moving feet, and the puffing and r
lowing of an almost out-of-breath man J
ras heard approaching. The night E
tas dark, but the face attached to the e
apidly moving man was so pale that it
emoved the darkness from around it to
ad exposed to full view one of Man- u
ing's city officials. Close behind this n
eet but paled-faced official was anoth- p
r citizen armed with an engine of 2
eath, in the shape of a double-barrel s
hot gun. The race was swift and v
hort, as the pursued indiyidual was t
eaded off and his pursurer caught him h
rith gun in his hand and blood in his n
ye the man with the gun accused his t)
ersurer of robbing his hen roost, s
rbich brought forth an indignant de- h
ial in language more emphatic than
usually used in ordinary conversa
on. The emphatic denial was intend
d as a bluff, but when the .man with
ae gun persisted in the accusation. 3
he pare-faced and now excited official d
wore that he had never been on his i
cuser's premises, and with one hand a
aised and eyes imploringly :plifted, E
e said, "1 neffer stole your schikens,
am the innercentest man in de town." b
11 this did not avail him, because he a
'as not only seen at the chicken coop, c

nother member of the town council to
ecome responsible for h:; appearance.
'he member of the council that con- r;
,nted to release his fellow-official, did r,
reluctantly, because he regarded it a
s a reflection upon the whole body to ,
ave such an accusation brought d
gainst a colleague with almost posi- si
ve evidence of guilt, and the only rea

rotested his innocence so vehemently
iat he had hopes of it being a case of S
istaken identity, and that when a
torning arrived the mystery might be b
!eared. The evidence, however, was c
Lmost positive, as one gentleman re- a

a there unfolded which would have G
rought a blush to the face of the hi,
est Munchausen in the worla. His
inocent better half accepted the state- U
ent of her lord, because he "vas der e
inercentest man in der town."
The next morning he got up and E

She arrived at Chis store the -man n
:ross the street in the livery stable in- t
ead of greeting him with the usual C
nod morning, greeted him with, ~
Hello, Mi. K. how is the chicken busi
ess?" He rolled his eyes toward the 9
an across the street, and said, "Dot ~
as a lie, don't say schiken to me agin."V
. little later in the day, his son came
>the store and told his father what 9
ie cook had told -to the house,. and ~
at "mama says come home quick, ~
xe wants to see you, and clean up the ~
reakfast dishes," He replied to his
n, "tell your mama I won't come to
reakast. und not believe de lies de 9
ok vas telling her." P
After the boy left no Russian cossack ~
er cursed more in such a'short space ,
time than did M. K. He paced up
2d down in front of his store in deep
editation, totally oblivious to all
ssers-by, but when a chicken in a
righboring yard would cackle, he
ould jump in a startled manner and
utter something in his native tongue,
hich will have to be sent to the. Czar
Russia for translation.
While thus meditating over-'the 9
rent of the previous night, a deputy 9
eriff armed with a warrant of ar- 9
s called upon him and performed
s dty. He arrested Mr. Kalisky up F
Sthe charge of stealing a chicken s

rious charge, brought out a large
imber of persons. W. C. Ulavis, Esq. C
presentedithe accused and Maj. Ab 0
ri the State. Trial Justice Tim- ti
ons presided. A number of witness- a
was examined, and the testimony "
as in some respects clinching, bnt
rtunately the accused had for his L
tnesses some of his confederates and
ey swore their best to clear him
owever, -the defendant himself put
e finishing touches on the swearing Y
his own behalf.. He convinced the
urt that he had never been on Mr.
an's yard, and that he did not steal
e "schiken." In short, he was "der
inercentest man in town." The tes- F
mony being conflicting created a
:ubt en the court's mind, and he dis- c
issed the prisoner.
The whole affair was a huge joke,
d the parties in collusion with Mr.
aliskey put up the job. They did go
>Dean's chicken house, but had first
ild Mr. Dean and the whole gang
ne w of it but M. K., and Dean was on
e watch. M. K was to get the chick
n, and the crowd were to have it
oked for supper. Since last Wednes
ay nights experience, and the ordeal
e passed through the next day, he
ants no one to say "schikens" to him
o more. When asked why he per
sted in denying stealing the chicken. o
e said, "A lie well stuck to is so goot

Henry Anderson, the negro who is
harged with killing bis mother-in- ei

rounding his wife, Sarah Anderson, is tc

aobile. Anderson last night about mid- it
ight gave himself up to Magistrate A. tc
Richbourg at Summerton and the pl
ummerton magistrate at once inform- ti
d the sheriff that he had the man.
Anderson's relatives in the Summer- n'
on section were warned to give him ai

night go hard with them if they gave ti
rotection to him. It is understood that ti
knderson waded in the creek for a con- b
iderable distance and it was in this St
ray that he threw the dogs off his ai
rack. He walked all the distance. to p,
is brother's, reaching there Sunday

here, gave himself up that nignt. He ti
