The Way of the Transgressor.
About three months ago, Reuben
Perry, who was sent to the chain gang
for stealing Joe Lee's ox, escaped one
mile from town on the hill where the
work was in progress. A search for
several hours, continuing into tile
nigh', provel fruitless. News of Rou
ben's movements amongst the hills of
Waterce reached town from several
sources. It was known thaat he was
6 "lying out." He had no firm abiding
place, but was resting on his arms-an
r old musket- and while he dodged
from view of passers-b'y it was thought
that to take him it would be necessary
t-> "get the drop." Several parties
who wanted the "drop" went and re
turned as they went-empty handed.
Reuben was finally last sight of'. It
was thought he had gone to North
Carolina "where all [he bad niggers
go" when they commit crime in South
Subsequent events proved to the
contrary. Ti'ue as fate, the eccd
criminal lingered, t o neat' for his own
g.od around his family and friendly
associationa. He had sought work in
I~ershaw County, and could cr'oss over
to Fairfield arnd see how all were. But
Trial Justice Matheson heard of him
and proceeded to Camden. Stcuring
the aid of the deputy s-heriff, he and
Mr. Moon (from our county) rode
about si; miles and a half, They
hitched their horses and actually
crawled one mile and a half up field,
~ditches and through growing crops.
Fortunately a p'ece of woods formed
a complete shield of view between
them, and Perry ploughed to the end
of a furrow within twenty feet cf the
crouching p'arty. As he turned bhs
mule and got his back to them they
made a break. Tbeir gurns reduced
his chances of leg bai! to a minimnum.
He spoke out with graat assurance,
saying, "Pim not the man." WVhen
asked, "Whomi ar'e we hunting?" lie
replied, "Reuben Perry ; but my name
is Reuben Jones." It was agreed that
he could have a chance to p:-ove his
ientt in Fairfield, but he admitted
it when he reached Mr. Gunion
Mr. Mathe-on says he verily believes
that Perry would have iumped from
the car window, and killed himself
rather than to have gone back to the
chain gang. But he is there and will
haye to make up the time he has lost
from work, which will be about three
