A Brave Woman.
M R s. GAILLARD's DESPERATE
STRUGOLE WITH A PRISONER AT
TEMPTING To ESCAPE-A WELL
LAID PLAN FOR LInERTY AND
How IT WAs DEFEATED--GOOD
CONDUCT OF A COL.oRED "TRUs
TY."
At the Greenville jail the priso
nors are allowed the freedom of the
hall-ways until the big iron doors
at the ends are to be opened.
Then all prisoners wore ordered
to their cells and the cell doors are
looked on thon simultaneously by
turning a lover outside which
throws bolts running along each
side of the halls.
Monday evening it became
known that Victor Posey, a colored
prisoner who had served a short
term, was to be released yesterday
morning, and Anderson Davis, who
is awaiting trial for assault and
battery, laid a plan for escape.
Ho hung a blanket over the win
dow of the hall-way to make it
dark. Yesterday morning be
tween 8 and 9 Mrs. A. D. Gaillard,
jr., wife .of the jailor, went to the
upper story where the colored pris
onors are kept to release Posey, Mr.
Gaillard boing absent at the time.
She order3d all the mon from the
hall except Posey and then had
Jim Harrison, a colored "trusty"
who is sorving a short sentonco
and who she took up with her,
turn the lover and lock the cell
doors. Davis had lurked in the
dark place at the rear of the hall
and slipped bohmid the stovo in
stead of going to his cell. Posey
passed out and down the steps,
Harrison going with him. As Mrs.
Gaillard was closing tho door to
the hall Davis made a quick rush.
She saw him coming and tried to
get tle heavy outer hasp over the
staple, but lie was too fast. The
door opens inward and Davis seized
the bars and pulled it. open with
all his power.
Mrs. Gaillard is as brave and
nervy a woman as lives. She
swung on to the door and pulled
it shut. Davis is a stout, thick set
fellow and had all 'the advantage
of leverage on his side. He braced
his feet against the inner facing
and tugged desperately. He got
the door half open half a dozen
times, but Mrs. Gaillard pulled it
shut again every time. Each
struggle is marked on her right
are, for she was crowded close up
against the corner of the stone
wall, and whenever she wvas pulled
forward the skin and flesh on that
arm were torn and bruised. It was
not a long struggle, but it was a
ha'rd and desperate one. Mrs.
Gaillard called to her father-in
law, A. D. Gaillard, sr., who was
down stairs, to bring a p)istol.
She says she wvould have used it
and there is no doubt she would
for she has steady eyes in which
there is no suggestion of being
afraid of anything. Mr. Gaillard
hoard the call but did not under
stand what was wanted and went
half-way up the steps before he
knew the pistol was wanted. He is
old and can not move very fast,
andl by the time ho got back with
it the trouble was over. Jim Har
rison, the "trusty" heard the noise
and ran back up the stairs to Mrs.
Gaililard's assistance. Meanwhile
Bur t, the jailer's little son-a chip
of the old blood evidently, had
gathered and loaded his parlor ri
flie and stationed himself on the
stairs with the injunction to his
mother to "lot him come" and
Steve Howard had sung out from
the window down stairs . to* John
Forrest, a United States prisoner
in the yard, who had improvised a
clb and stationed himself at the
lower door. So there was not the
slightest chance for Davis to es
cape. He had got one leg through
the door, but Mrs. Gaillard and
Harrison together pulled the door
so hard on it that he presently
weakened and sullenly bogged to
be allowed to retnrn to his cell.
They let him go, then, a sore, mad
and disheartened jail bird, with
his scheme for liberty spoiled.
Mrs. Gaillard was going about
her household work as usual yes
terday evening with her injured
arm wrapped in bandages and her
nerves unshaken. And her hus
band was the maddest - man this
side of Columbia and the proudest
man anywhare.-.mnAd beanan his.
wife had boon hurt, and proul ho.
cause she and the boy had shown
such undaunted pluck.--Groonvillo

A Greenville Fire.
Monday last a short timo beforo
12 o'clock noon, the harsh, ruigged
fire alarm sounded and the (u iot
city was stirred from conter, the
court house, to circumferenco, that
is, the outlines of the corporato
limits. The fire brigade headed
for West street, now known as
Highland avonue. A h u n d r e d
voices called "central" and soon
the telephono messago went over
the wires that tho sash and blind
factory of Gower & Dillard was
burning. Tho mill is located at
the corner of Echols stroot and
Highland avenue.
The firemen were prompt in ro
sponding to the call and a stream
of citizens followed tho machines.
With the destruction of the mill,
office and dry kiln, the flames leap
od across the street or alley and
attacked the tonoment houses ad
joining, and four h o u s es were
quickly destroyod.-G r o o n v ile

Gov. Tillman moans to enforce
the dispensary law as long as he
is at the head of affairs in South
Carolina. The law requires him
to do so and he will discharge his
duties no matter how much the
whiskey organs may protest and
the liquor men resist the oflicers.
No friend of morality and so
brioty can afford to countenance
any resistance to the law. The
civil authorities must be sustained
and the iniquitous blind tigers put
down.
If the law is not all that is d
sired by its friends it can be a
mended as its defects appear.
But it will never be stricken from
the statute books until it has had
a fair trial -and ths people are
made to respect authority.
Gov. Tillman will accomplish
two things in enforcing the law.
He will teach respect for authority
and aid the cause of temperance
too.-Abbeville Medium.

A now inviutionl has just sprung
imto 0existencie which will revo
iltioniize the entire system of pro
Polling cars by olectricity. It is
somothing that has never been
thought of hol'ore, and it comes
fresli from tho hands of the inven
tor. with millions to back it, and
1n0 stock for salEo. Next to tho ap
plication of oloctrielty as a pro
pelling agont, this new contrivance
is one of the most important in
voltions of the ago.
1R is a devico for operating sur
face and elovatod cars by an un
dorground and olectric system in
dopendent of tho storago hattery
or trolloy wiro.
The system was rocently invent
od by Mr. James F. McLaughlin,
of Philadelphia, and a model has
hoon sent to Atlanta for its first
exhibition hoforo tho Street Rail
way Association now inl session in
this city. Mr. Georgo Lodge, of
Phila(elphia, the genoral inaa
ger of the syndicato contr'olling
the patent., has the model in charge
at the Kimball IHoIuse.
Tih( now invention, which has
sprung into the olectrical world
like a brilliant imotoor, is yet with
out a namo, 118 it has just left the
h1and(ls of the i nven tor: but that it
haw como to stay is a fIt that im
prossos itself at a glance. it is a
paragon of simnplicity. Its appli
cation' requires no chango in pow
or house, dynaios or motors on
car's.
Tho equipmient , weight is aboutlOO
poun1ds, and is hiolted luidoineath
the bottom of the car. The ad
juniiict aitt ach ment is a conduit fas
tonoid to tho top of th sloopei's in
the centro of the roadhods, and to
do this a sipaIco of only .eightoon
inches in which has to 1o oxcava

onarrow spceI is ropaved, leaving
nothing to bo soon but a flat and
levol strip ono inch wide running
along the top of the conduit paral

the stroot. Thoro is no slot or

of a series of flat iron rails, separ
