The canvass of votes of the late citv

For some time past there has boon an
aged and peculiar couple residing near
the Northwestern round house , both of
whom scorned n little dn/cd or unbal
anced. They are continually talking
about somebody who , in their imagina
tion , is stoning their house , and seem to
bo greatly worried about other imaginary
ills. Vcstcrday morning the old lady
went down on the dummy track , near the
pauking house , and placed herself in n
position to bo run over and killed by the
rapidly approaching train. Some labor
ers noticing her queer procedure hur
ried to the spot and pulled her off the
track in time to prevent her death. The
woman is apparently of unsound mind ,
and should b'J caied for by the authori
ties. It is reporlei ! tlii't this is not her
first attempt at sclf-dohtructiOM ,

Neola has boon wrestling over the queS'
tion of water works , and has decided to
have them. The amount of the cxpon
dlture is slated as about $12,000 , of winch
amount the railroads are to contribute
about $5,000 , leaving $7,000 for the city.
It is stated that the city has $3,000 in cash
in its treasury which can be used for this
purpose , so that an indebtedness of only
$1,000 is to bo incurred. The local light
has been a hot ono , but the decision of
the voters has been made in favor of the
works as tlio best preventive of llres.
A Sncnlc Tlilof.
A stranger in Doll Morgan's drug stofo
yesterday attracted the attention of the
proprietor by his suspicious actions , and
being convinced that the fellow had slipped
pod something into his pocket ho gave
O nicer Unthank the hint , as soon as the
follow loft the store. That olllcer follow
ed him to the corner , when the fellow
broke into a run , and the olllcor had a
lively nnd long chase up the alloy before
ho caught him. The fellow gave his
name as Charles Jackson , and when
searched nt the station n perlumery case
was found in his pocket. He will have a
hearing this morning.
Prepare to Register.
The boards of registry moot next
Tuesday at the same places as before ,
nnd will continue in session dally for the
rest of the week. Voters should not
overlook the fact that they must register
ngain if they would vole , The old regis
try , taken for the recent city election ,
counts for naught in the coming elec
tion. Kvery ono who expects or desires
to vote nuiHt sue to it personally that Ids
name is registered next week , or else his
vote will not bo received on election day
The boards will meet for one tiay after
wards , on the Wednesday preceding
election ( lay , but votois should not post
pone registering until that day , unless
some unavoidable circumstances proven
their registering next week. The earlier
the matter is attended to the bettor am
surer. It seems strange that toters
should need any urging to attend to this
mutter , but such seems the caso.

The council then adjourned until

The adjournment was rather unex
pected. There was a large number of
bills and other documents on the table ,
and the deputy clerk was instructed by
his father to hold the now mayor's bond
to the last , buthe slipped the jack from
the bottom , and it was approved before
the council realized what the effect would
be. As soon as attention was called to
the fact that Mayor Kvans was no longer
mayor , business had to be suspended and
the adjournment took place.
City Attorney Holmes , although of the
opposite party , suggested that resolu

Kvans for his services , anil this matter
was laid over until next Thursday night.

In the spring of Mil , when thu federal
government had placed so many block
ades outside of Charleston bar that tliov
wore in danger of colliding with oacli
other every time lUo son got up , says a
writer in the Detroit FIDO I'iesl shipped
at Nassau on an English blockade runner
cabled thu Deerhound. She was loaded
with arms , clothes , shoos , inodieines ,
tents and drv goods , nnd the cargo was
worth nt least > ? SOOIOO ( in gold. At that
time not more than two bloukaders n
month slipped into Charlestonami it wa
well understood among us that wo had
nineteen chances of going to the bottom
or being captured to ono of getting safe
in. Indeed , the risk was known to be so
great thnl the confederate agent hud
haul work to get a crow. It was only a
short run , as you know , but the four of
us who might be. classed as roustabouts
were promised $100 in gold npiuco to
make the trip. If wo got in wu were to
bu retained by the steamer at ifo pur day
until she was ready to come out with
cotton. If wo were sunk or captured
that was our own lookout.
The confederate agent who had the
mailer in charge was n hustler. There
were half n do/.on 'Yankee spies in and
about Nassau , with Jjome of the federal
cruisers constantly , in port , and it was
useless to expect to get away without our
departure being known. It was , however ,
given out and generally credited that we
were bound tor Savannah. Wo were
ready to leave late tin tile afternoon of a
Monday , but a Yankee cruiser arrived
that day noon anil some < > f the spies put
off ami warned the captain of what was
up. Ho had como in for water , provisions
and repairs , out down wenl ins anchor in
Ihe harbor , and ho kept up a full head of
steam. If wo loft ho would follow , and
even if wo could outrun him lie would
keep near enough to bother us off Charles
ton. In this emergency a lot more freight
was brought down lo the wharf , and
everybody turned lo as if we had at least
another day's work. A number of bar
rels and bales wore hoisted into the hold
before dark , but only to be hoisted out
again when our scouts reported that the
cruiser had banked her lires and allowed
a number of her crew to go ashore on
leave.
At 10 o'clock al night the weather
turned nasty , and it begun to dri//.lo.
Half an hour later the Deerhound sliipcd
away from her clocks so quietly that few
know of her departure. We ran within
a quarter of a mile of the cruiser , but
the weather was so thick that the best
glass could nol have made us oul to bo
the craft ho was so anxious to follow.
When we got fairly out the steamer was
driven for all she was worth. There was
ovor.y chance that her nbsonce would bo
observed before morning , nnd n long
stiu t would bo our only salvation. As it
afterward turned out wo were not
missed until daylight , nnd then the crui
ser got under way at onco. Why ho
headed for Charleston instead ot Sa
vannah I never ascertained. Ho ptolta-
bly acted on thu idea thai if wo said one
place wo were bound for Ilio olhor.
Hail all gonu well with us wu should
have appeared off Charleston bar in the
early hours of ovonin < i , thus giving us
all night to slip past the blocknders1
Vhon thirty miles away , at 5 o'clock in
tlio rtflernoon. an accident happened in
the engine room , s 2'l rc lay like a logon
the sea. Half an hoi.r later wo sighted
the cruiser who had como oui 0 * Nassau
after us. Wo had overrun our dlHir.II'0
to the north by ten or twelve miles on
purpose. The cruiser came down within
six miles of us before he bore nwuy to
the west. Wo could make him out very
.clearly , although the weather was ha/.y ,
but he could not see us. The blue-white
color of the sloamer made her blond
with the horizon , and seem a part of it
at thai distance. Our coal was smoke
less , and loft no trace on the sky. It was
not until tlio cruiser was almost out of
sight to the west that wo hud our repairs
completed and started ahead nt half
speed. Wo ran In to within ten miles of
the bar , nnd the cruiser had been lost to
sight tor two hourswhon the lookoutwho
had u strong night glass , dupovered : him
ogam. Ho was standing oul lo sen , and
was scarcely iwo inilouway nnd dead
nhead of us. Our edurse was changed
Iwo or three points , , eyery light ex
tinguished , and wo crept out of Ills path.
Ho was off our quarter and u milo away
when ho discovered ui { , and the very lirot
warning we had wW ) the roar of a big
gun ana the scream of a ahull which However
over us. Wo were nv forlt now. It was
either run to sea or l6ld ; 'Straight for Uio
bur. O.ir captain deeidgdupon the latter
course , and Uio Doerhoiind dashed for
ward al her bcsl spool. Up wonl half a
do/.en rockets from \\o \ } \ cruiser , and
bung ! bangl wonl l.i-r guns , and llvo
minutes later every bloeknder on the
station was liring rockets. It was under
stood that a runner wns approaching.
As wo drew near \vp saw light after
light dancing on the waters I believe
there wore twenty blockudors on the sta
tion. Red and blue lights wcro burned ,
rockets wore exploded and the Deerhound -
hound was pushed into the thickest of
them. The first eraft wo passed was not
K pistol shol away , the second was al
most grazed ; the third guvo us a shot
which look the ornament off the sto-im-
or's stom. Then all of thorn seemed to
open lire at once , and shots came from
all points of the compass. Wo were
struck throe times within a minute , but
no 0110 was hurt , nnd not much dumago
was done. Wo kepi driving ahoad.nover
swerving a point , nnd after a few min
utes all the shot oamo from astern , thus
proving that wo hud passed through the
iloet. Shell and round shot screamed
over us and splashed around us , but wo
swept up the channel unharmed and
were llnully out of rnngo and safe in
BjccsBiu.
