James at Irvington on laat Saturday morning. Arthur Messick warranted Willie Taylor, of White Stone, for aix dollars. Taylor notifled Meaaick that he would offset the clsim to the extent of $1.50. Mes? sick denied the offset in toto. Both partiesgot rungup and cleared for ac? tion. They came into the forum of Justice James, each backed by hia law yer. All suggestions of compromiae offered by the friendly lawyers were scouted. Justice James even offered to pay half rather than judge the fight, and to save time, but no quarter was asked or given by the psrties. It was "win the horse or lose the saddle'' straight through. The crowd grew large as the contentions of the attor neys rsng out on the morning air. When the smoke cleared away, Mes? sick stood victor over the prostrate form of his relentless antagoniat. Tay? lor in settling up waa heard to asaert that he had much rather go to jail than pay the extra one-fifty, and Measick gave his lawyer courage by asaerting during the heat of battle that he'd rath? er give up one hundred cold plunks than lose the case.

THOUGHT HADES TURNED LOOSE Bewlldered Travelers See a Streak ef Ureaaed Flame aad Take to the liaaber. As the shades of night were falling fast last Monday a pair of Romeos were speeding it toward Kilroarnock, behind a certain popular phyaician's horse named "Devil", when afront loomed up a line of flame that made them think of the great Eubank flre. Of course the horse's name had nothing to do with their easy consciences, but for some reason thoughts of the Inferno crossed their vision and both simultaneously ejaculated "H-has broke looae!" One scrambled out and started to ahin up a pine tree, while the other steer ed his horse into the nearby thicket. Past them like greased lightnlng thef flame sped down the road. It had hooked up to it one of the scaredest anirnals man ever saw. A buggy on fire and the flame fanned by the Maud S. pace left a streak about ten ysrds long behind. Thoughts of a comet hitched to a horse, or chasing him, ?flashed through the two gallants minds. After it had passed the tremulous pair crept out, and followed?but afar off. They could not have caught up had they tried. The apparition was solved when the runaway steed took up in a patch of wooda and started af resh with only shafts, axle and spring. The consuming buggy continued for awhile to make lurid the darkening air. A careless negro driver and a lantern were the cause of all the conaternation. Returning with Eubank's buggy the driver had a lantern under the buggy robe. Getting out to stretch his limbs, the horse started up, upset the lantern and?the rest has been told. 30 DAYS* SALE.
