tlioiii-lit, while phtyin; oirds in

k'unc. Hit oppoiicnl was n known

wore slightly wounded, when a lucky

"See here, .liui." said ho, "you

At the next tcriiio! Court, Wooley
wnsuportr.nl; tho jury returned a
verdict of guilty, the judges sentenced
him to one ye-ir in the penitentiary at
Jack-on. The paper-wero duly male
on, nnd the Sherilf propose I lo start
wit b him lor Jacks-m, but Wooley do-
murrcd.
"You know, Sheriff,'' said he, "that
tho county m poor can't afford the
trip and s I'll just let my boy Ca-sir
drive mo down lo Jacksuii, and save
all the expense. (Jul the papers ?"
The Sher.ff produced them, and. ere
ho was aware, Wooley se;zud them
mi l put llnni in bis pocket.
"All rigjit." said he, 1 shall be oil
to-morrow morning."
Tho Slier ill' knew ho hi I a desperate
nun t deal with, but when bo re
flected that Wooley never broko his
word, uud had, besides, over ?101',00U
worth of property he could not move,
ho made a virtue of necessity, and left
things to lake their turn
' True to his word, Wooley h-lt for
Jack-on. and in time arrived. Putting
up ut tho Mansion House, ho sullied
out. visited all the gambling lu lls with
which that towu abounded, uud tho
next morning drove up tn tho pent
temiury. Kutei-iiig tho waul room,
he inquired :
Where shall I find lbs Warden"
"I urn the man," said Col. Dickson
"Well, 1'vo brought you a prisoner "
'Where is he T' inquired Iho War
den "Here : I nin tho mnn," nnd Wooley
handed over Ibo Sheriff's mittimus.
Tho Warden was ainan-d. Had he
tt lunatic to deal with, or had the man
killed Ihe Sheritf, slid then came, to the
prison todely him f He could not tell;
lull ba determined quickly lo keep
tho man. since ho offered himself.
"Xuw," said Wooley, "let us go
through tins place und so bow ii
looks." nnd through they went. As
they returned to Ihe guard-riHm
YVooJcy had talked so pteasautiy mat
v
"Xow, Mr. Wooley, what branch ol
the- buitiee do you tbiok you would
like heat V
" To tell you the truth, Oolonol,"
said Wooley, " I uover did a day's
work in my lite, aud I don't in inn in
ik any of your cussed trades. I'll
tell you how we can fix it I'll clerk
lor yu. just for the name of tho thing,
and we'll live jollity together till the
year's up.' '
Tbe Wardea aaw he had a character
to deal withheld concluded that a ma
who would an into prison of hi own
accord would not run iway, and )o
qiiioseed. Wooley staid bia year ac
cordingly ; nominal olerk r eou.pai.iou
by day and a gambler in Jackson by
