TH E END oF AN ELOPEMENT.
Tfle Girl Waiting t'or her Faith les I over Until She Becomes a Rlaving ,Maniac. c.'.Ut:Lorr~, N. C.. Feb. 13.-Some weeks ago Miss Steila Martin of this coun ty, despite the opposition of her parents, accepted the attentions of Junius Harris bugg, of an adjoining county, and un known to them, agreed to marry him. K nowing that the girl's parents would not COnIiftIiL to the match, the lovers agreed to elope. It was planned that Miss Martin should colme to this place, where she would he met by her lover at the depot, and the two were to leave on the train for Concord, where they were to he 'married. Tuesday morning was fixed uipomn as the time lor the elopemnnt. The young wollan escaped in the night '. onm her father's house and came to this city. Her lover, however, proved faithless, and did not Imieet her. She stood at the depot from dayb treak till noon, not daring to leave the rtmlln for fear of miss ing h, r lovcr, anil ati tied her hunger with a few apples . ii oht she purchased fromil a by. As lllight caille on she real ized !hat ,ho h; tla ei ieu. dipd(, and when, a li!tie later, a policeman came to suggest that lshe leave the depot, he found her a raving maniac. Her father, when he dis covered her absence, traced her to this city, and this morning, when he found the girl, her reason had so far fled that she did not recognize him. lie carried her home to-night. A I)lsgusting Glove Fight. 'thirty men, who paid $5 each for a ticket, dropped in one by one into an up town hall between midnight and 1 o'clock yesterday morning, and saw Jim Connelly and Jack McConnell slug each other with smani hard gloves until the referee thought there would be danger in letting them go on. More blood was spilled in one of the rounds than in Sullivan's fight with Ryan at Mississippi City. From the first ex change they fought like madmen, all over the rineg, landing terrific blows. When the three minutes were up and time was called, both were battered and bleeding. They went, into the second round no less deslperately. The hard gloves cut theirI taces and breasts and each seemed bent more on disabling his adversary than de fending himself. Blood eovered their faces and dropped down their chests. The oldest frequenters of prize lights present said-they luad never seen such desperate slugging, The men came up gamely for the third round and were hardly at the scratch Ibefore they went at it again, giv ing and receiving tremendous right and left hand blows upon the nose, mouth, ear anld nose. They were supported to their corners when this had lasted three min utes. When the minute for rest was gone and time was calluad fotr the fourth round, they faced each other determinedly, but both were weak. Neither seemed to have the advantage in the give-and-take which followed. They mustered their spirits and drove their fists with what strength they had left against their ghush ed and swollen faces and bleeding bodies. They came up again at the call for the fifth round, but were sodisfigured and ex hausted that the referee stepped into the center of the ring and ordered the fight stopped.-N. Y. Mail and Exchange. Sparks From the Telegraph. By an explosion in a powder mill in ('orbeil, France, six persons were killed. Dr. Glenn, who was shot on Saturday in Jacinto, Cal., by his bookkeeper, H.

Early on Saturday morning, as the Wa bash cannon-ball train from Chicago stop. ped at the junction, forty miles from Kan sas City, a Pullman sleeper caught fire sacd was burned. The occupants were not Injured, but lost nearly all their property. Is This the Truth? In r.ply to some one who asked him why hcrdi.l not enter the Senatorial con test in Colohrado, Congressman BRelford -aid : '"There is no chance for me in that Jack pot. They have already got it up to $12,000,000, and I haven't got a single opener; alnd, if I had, there are men play ing at that game who would bet 'em so high that they would make any common man lay down a 'jack full.'"
