Vulley Mills, July 25. Tho course
of true love never runs smooth is an
old saying, and to anmmnce tho mar
riage of Miss Liizzio Dagley nnd Mr.
John McCune, would perhaps
excite no attention, but the
circumstances connected therewith
i make the occurrence one of romance.
A young merchant of Norway Mills
had engaged himself to Miss Dagley
and the wedding cards were
issued. They were to have been
married to-morrow, a largo number of
friends and acquaintances having
been invited. It seems the young
lady had nerinittcdlrcrsolltibecomeen-
gaged to tUo young merchant through
tue mierjereuoeoioiiieis, uiumugu ner
love belonged it another. Mr. Mc
Cune was notilled to make liasto and
procure license, imd all would be well,
then at ilie eleventh hour, which fce
did, nisl at midnight's iioly hour
the hapjiy lovers stole forth and wore
driven rapidly io tho justice of tho
peace, whore liie two 'hearts moto
made to boat as one. The Tunawnys
are exacted to return to-night, when
they willa-eeol-TC tlio congratulation of
a host f frlondfj.

The prisoner was very tractable, add it
did not require much persuasion to

near Columbia, lujloono county, Mis

so unfortunate as to bo the slayer of a

Kennard suid Smith roaumed tlieli
quarrel. I had taken iw part up to
tills tlmo, aud with a desire to make
peace and pile vent a light, I remarked
that we would all take ti delink and go
home, at theame time producing my
fiask. Ken iiiird spoke up: "No: we'll
not give theiu any of our whisky.'C.
Tho quarrel oantluued, aiui I again
suggested that wo all take a clnk ""d
gojiome. Sml tii then turned on me
and said: "Take your whisky jind go
to hell!" I nuide sonio curt reply
probably cursed xd, Smitlt, wJiawald if
I would come to Lrm ho would lick
mo. IVo were standing about twenty
feet apart, and both advanced until we
met, when I said: "I havo come."
Jjmith tlapped me ou tho shoulder,
saying: "I don't want to pay a fine for
lighting ciiildrcn." We wero each IS
years of age. I was very small and he
very largo fbr his yeaip. I laughed at
his remark About lighting children,
and Kennard camo up to urge on the
fight. Wn quarreled a few minutes,
when Smith agaiti slapped mo on the
shoulder und said: ".Let ns go into tho
street and fight it out aud let the fine
go to hell."
Wo went out together, Kennard and
Winster. following. As soon as we
readied the street we commenced
fighting. Smith hit me several tlmc3,
aud seeing that ho wus getting the
better of me, I drew my pockot knife.
Ho hit mo a heavy blow on tho right
side of my head, knocking me half
way round. Regaining my balance, I
struck a random blow nt him, plung
ing tho blade of my knife into the
right side of his neck, penetrating tho
Jugular voln. He fell, was picked up
by Kennard and Winston wlio curried
him to the sidewalk whoro ho bled to
death in a faw minutes. Tho killing
was a matter of impulse and not
malice. I had never known Smith
and consequently never owed him any
ill will. 1 did not realize -what I was
doing until after thostabblng, aud my
victim lay bleeding to death on tho
sidewalk. I fled nnd camo to Texas,
and was captured about ten dny after
ward at Doulson. I was tried, con
victed and sentenced to the peniten
tiary for a term of fifteen years. 1 had
served four years of my seittenco and
was In such delicalo health that I
had to bo placed in tho prison hospital.
In the hospital with me were Jim

years: Bill Stevens, ulso a robber, and
