Thursday uigbt CoDstuldu Andoraon
and Mr. l-.dv.urd l'osenlhall started to
take a walk up the loud to tbo Seaboard
Air-Line rouiiribonne. When part of
tho way up there, between the crossing
at Blouut's storo und the doput, they
beard two pistol shots lired. They
stopped for a moment, and while stun :
ing on the tract: a n. ,-iu pussod them,
Constable Audersou suid to him: ".Say,
stop a minute, who was that tin:;,; up
tbo track just now." The negro said:
"What do you want to know for."
Audersou replied: "I urn ru officer ami
want to lind out who n was." The
negro said "it was me," at tho eamo
time bring at Anderson."
Mr, Anderson said that his pistol
was in bis pocket, but as quick as a
tlueh he pulled it out aud returned tho
tire, Tho negro walked a few steps
anil rolled over iu a puddle of water,
lie thought then thut he had 6hot him
and advanced. Whou he got within
ten feet of tho negro he lirud at him
and i ui,. He then tired directly at lbs
ncrgo as tin was running. The negro
hallowed und fell, but soon jumped up,
und in the darktuiss he made hisiS-'ape
in .(ones' cow yard ou tue ehell road.
Mr. Anderson says after tho negro
foil,his first thought was be killed him,
but ho cousiileroii tho matter, thinking
possibly the negro had done nothing
to be shot for, but if he hud had uuy
idea thai the negro was going to fire at
him no would hare ended his life, lie
thinks now, and is almost confident,
that the negro is uu escaped convict,
who is wanted and for whom hi- nan a
warraut. He went back out there last
night in search of him aud if ho runs
across him lie will fare worse thau he
did Thursday night. Things are gat?
ing desperate aud stringent measures
vtill have to be resorted to.
