A SOLD SWA IX.
Comical Adventure, of a Love-Sick Hwalli Hills
tnuliiL'tlm W'li of Woman ami the. lunncumc of
The scene of this story is laid at Dog
Tooth, and the man who figures tin n vic
tim of the w iles of woman is constable of
the precinct Mr. Eugene Mitchamp.
Eugene in the ordinary run of iiffairs
found himself, or imagined he found him
self, in love vith a Miss Irwin. Miss
Irwin is nbout eighteen years old, good
hsiking, nnd in every way a good girl.
But she will jilt al over, us Mr. M. learned
by sad experience. The father of the
young lady warned Eugene of what his fate
would be, but the love that laughs at lock
smiths heeded not the old gentleman's
warnings. Matters had progressed so far
between the young couple that the
day for the marriage was set, and
Eugene to appear as a groom should
on such an eventful occasion, disposed of a
horse to get a supply of store clothes and
pawned a heifer to pay Hiimm for his mar
ringc license. So far everything was lovely
The day for the wedding arrived, and
"Would Eugene do his 'adored a favor,''
Eugene certainly would. She had but to
name it. She desired, upon reflection, she
said, to be married by a justice a ftiein
ol tlie tainily living at Inches. Lite man
who had been selected at home there
was for some reason objectionable to her, and
she could not abide being married by him.
To such a very reasonable request, of
course Eugene assented, lie furnished her
a mount, she using her own saddle. They
started for Thebes and the justice, and had
progressed along their journey rive or six
miles when an important actor in this
mclo-draniu put in an appearance. His
name is Powliss ami he met them on the
road, bade them good day, ami passed on.
He was also mounted, leading
another horse. After riding about
a mile in an opposite direction
from the young couple he halted, turned
the heads of his horses, and retraced his
steps ut a rapid gait. It did not take
him long to conic up with Eugene and
Eugene's betrothed. He rode alongside for
a few moments. The young lady called a
halt, told Eugene she would go no fur
ther with Ihui. ami dismounted. She
transferred her saddle to the led horse of
Powliss, mounted it, waved her hand
affectionately at Eugene, and rode off
across the country, with Powliss following
chse behind. Eugene could not move.
He was transfixed with amazement. After
awhile something began to dawn upon his
mind, and lie realized that he had been
utilized by the young lady to forward her
scheme of elocnient witli young Powliss.
He returned home, reH)rted the facts and
received the sympathy ot his lnends.
The father of young Powliss. when he heard
of it, was so enraged at the conduct of his
sou that lie caused a search to be made for
the young couple, but up to day before
yesterday the search was in vain. No
tidings could be had of them.
Mr. Mitchcamj), in shaking of the matter,
is almost inconsolable at the loss of his
horse and heifer, but views the loss of Miss
Irwin with stoical indifference. Our in
formant says there may yet be serious
trouble alnnit the matter, as Powliss. sen
ior, is on the war path, very bitter against
the girl, whom he charges with instigating
his son to the awful deed of running away
w ith her.

THE ELECTION YESTERDAY.
THE I'HOI'OSITION, "FOUISSU.NU TUB llONIls"
CAIthIi:i 11V A OOOI) MAJORITY LKtUT
The election yesterday on tho proposi
tion to compromise the bonded indebted
ness of the city demonstrated a lack of in
terest in the matter in one instance ami a
lack of understanding of the full nature of
the proposition in another. It was not un
usual to hear some of those who opposed it
assert that by defeating tho proposition our
bonded debt would be repudiated in toto;
by others that if the bondholders signified
a willingness to take lll'ly cents on the dol
lar, it was evidence on its face that they
conceded the illegality of the bonds; oth
ers that it was a deep and villainous com
bination of designing men in the citv to
enrich themselves at the expense of the
people; more who would not commit them
selves by a vote for the reason that it might
not turn out to be just what it was repre
sented. Xo amoiiut of hammering could
drive a correct understanding of the propo
sition into their heads. The vote cast w as
comparatively light, but if it be taken as a
criterion of public sentiment, it shows
that a decidedly large majority of the vo
ters favor it.

MAX. James Webb, who is now in the jeiiiten
tiary at Chester, serving out a term of two
years for stealing a heifer, formed an ac
quaintance with Burklow in our county
jail, and reminds him of his friendship! .-.nd
of his regret at his fate in the following
letter, written evidently by a clergyman. It
is a remarkable specinvn of religious gush
for a convict to subscribe to:
Fit ikk i) Bi'kkai.ow Your letter of June

knows no IjouikIs, and that through the re- j

Jesus Christ Jour great mediator and J
heavenly advocute, these the darkest hours
of your earthly existence may lie the fore- !
nujner of a happy and glorious eternity. !

position that I assume a task beyond my j
ability in addressing you at all, and I would J
not by any means intrude on your medita

p.orablc and lamentable situation, were it '
not that I fear you would misconstrue my '
motives were I to refrain from answering j
