The Unheaval of a Railway
Track.
A Savannah, special to the Picayune
says: Conductor W. T. Blanchard left
Savannah in charge of train No. 44 of
the Charleston and Savannah Railway,
at 7 o'clock yesterday morning. His ex
perieuce is perhaps the most interesting
that has yet been told. The train was
due in 'harleston at 11:25. The road
wai s loot, andl i.e raul to Adams Run
thirty miles this site of Charleston, was
made on s hedle time. At Adams Run
there was delay of some minutes for or
ders. Ravenals was reached at noon
Betweuen Adams Run and this point is
the mos4t ljrous and wonderful result
of the unbeaval. The track for several
muiles is wayedout of place from three
to ive feet. It was moved in every In
stance to thi east and towards the
ocean. The roads run through a level
country, and there is little or no grade
so that the track was simply shoved out
of place at somse points clear of from the
roadbled. Along thie road, the entire
distance from Adanm Run to Ravenale,
the ground is full of deep boles, some of
thema fifteen and twenty feet deep and
fron ten to thirty acrose. The soil in
that part of the country is blasek but
around the openings of these curious
holes, or what at first looked like sinks,
are masses of a blue substance somewhat
r-esetmtllng volcanie matter. Instead of I
being sinks the holes are the effect of
tremendous upheaval. The blue matter (
which is something like mus d has the I
appearance of having been blown out
of the gromnd into the air and then fall
en back in heaps. The country in what I
in called a dry swamp and is ten miles *
from salt water, and twenty- or more
miles from the oesan. The isles are
filled with water with a blackish taste
and smells something like swamp water.
When the train reached Adams Run,
it was slowed np and ran on to Ravenals
reaching there an hour late. The track
was uneven and places most of the road
edl. The ground was pitted with deep
h!olei.. ,end everywhere there were eviden
et of great cmmiuotion in the earth. The
water in the holes babbled up in the
'centre like a boiling point, and was in a
ceotinual state of agitation and a strong
sulphurmos smell was noticeable, and
the blue matter that was blown out of
the hole, rovered the ground. The train
was unable to proceed beyond Ravenals
the track being wider water.

Charles Brooseard, P. M.
The Westers Rural says that a lazy -
man ought never to get married. Home
duties are to exacting for laziness. It is
the husband's duty to assume a fall
share of the labor that is by many sp
posed to be peculiarly the wife's. It fuar
thersays that the average theory of home
life is that the happes of home de
pends solely upon the wife. She is ad
vised always to have the husband's sup
per ready and hot. It seems to be p
posed that she has married a stomach;
and we admit that the stomaeh appears
to be all there is to some men.
