The Attempt to Kill Gultenu.
TIickb detail of tliB attempt to nssassi.
tiate Guiti'im Inst !i(bt are luinUhnd by A
"Washington apecial :
Tbcro is reason to beliovo tbnt a few days
Ago tbnie wits aotne talk among tbe soldiers
ilotailed to guard btm, itl regard to wkluk
one of (bom alioukl be chosen to shoot Rt
him whenever he should present bis bead at
the wiudow of bis celt where it could be
seen from the outside. It was deolded
that the work should be done by Sergeant
John A. Mnsou, of company It, Second
artillery, mid be male preparations for It.
This evening three wngoii-loads of soldiers
left tbe arsenal for the jail to relieve tbe
day guards. Mason was in tbe lust wagon,
aud bis companions noticed that be was
fumbling with tbe lock of his gun, aud was
acting srraugely. Nothing was said to
liloi about it bowovor. When his wagon
readied the jail M.iRon was tbe first to get
out. He rushed forward, reached n small
hillock about three feet from where the
horses stood, brought bis gnu to his shoul
der, took steady aim at Ouiteau's wludow,
shouted, "There be is," and fired. Boforo
tbe amoko cluafed away tbo other soldiers
gathered around biin.
" In heaven's namo, man," cried private
Davin, "why did you shoot?"
"I wanted to kill that wretch in there,"
was the reply, "and I have been nt it tut
ton days. I hope I have done the work in
Mason then walked townid the command
ing oflloer, Cupttiiii McGilvray, saying :
" Captain, I Imve tried to kill that dirty
loafer iu thero. Here's my guu and bayo
net. Take me in charge."
MoGilvray bad beard the shot, hut bad
not dreamed of Mason's Intentions. lie
placed MaHou In tbe custody of two sol
diers. There was much excitement about tbe
jail and iuside of it. Prisoners who bad
Vie.Vid tbe shot ran to tbe windows and
s'iouted. Warden Crocker aud his deputy,
who had been in tho jail ofllce, ran through
the coi ri Jora to Ouiteau's cell aud found
liitu on bis knees, tenor-stricken.
"1) i thoy want to murder me?" he ask
ed. The warden assured hi in that bo need
have no fear.
"But l'vo been shot at," said the pris
ouer. "I was standing at my window
when one of those soldiers fired at me.
The ball passed by my ear, went through
my coat hanging up there, and tore lu
pieces tbe photograph of my niotbor, which
wa3 in tbo pocket."
The warden discovered that the ball had
not hit the prisoner's body, aud he then
went outsido to see who bad fired the shot.
It was agreed that it would be best to tell
Guiteau that tho shooting had been acci
dental. This announcement was made to
him, the explanation being that a soldier
iu getting out of tbo wagon bad acciden
tally discharged his guu. It was decided
that Guiteau should be removed to another
cell, and he was placed iu the oue formerly
occupied by Stone, who murdered bis wife.
" A Clrl's Choice.
It was iu a drug store of course. Al
interesting iucideuts occur in drug stores, -that
is nearly all. Sho was pretty, with
blue eyes aud golden hair, one of those
kind of beauties the poet would bave called
au " angel," but for tbe fact that a colony
of pimples on her fair frontispiece preclud
ed all thought of a colcstial beiug. Bow
ing timidly to tho handsome cierk, she
asked for "Swayue's Ointment for skin
deseases," and upon receiving it vanished
like tho morning dew before the Bummer
Getting Married In North Carolina.
A couple from Virginia lauded in Milton
the other morning to be married by 'Squire
Lewis. They walked baud-in-band up
Tiluin street and took a seat upon the front
step of tho 'Squire's office, and tbe man
anked for a license. As the 'Squire was
preparing to mriki it out, the buxoin girl
began to inch oil', aud hesitated, aud finally
said to the young man iu a half whisper :
"John," said she, "I don't believe I
will I never did feel so llustrated lawd !
I wonder what pappy'a doing now I feel
right titmblesorue let's go back; come on,
"Well, you don't waut the license, then?"
eaid the 'Squire.
1 "Holdonthar, Mister; yes, we do,"
said the mau ; aud be moved closer up and
set hiB cbiu to earnest work. " Now,
Sally," said be, "don't go on tbater way ;
what 'ud the folks say ? It 'ud be awful
hard on me. An' thar's the candy stew at
Bob Brown's to-night, an' aller that ; aud
Sukey Jones would just die a-griunin' over
you about it. She was mad as pizen yister
diy when she beard we was comiu' "
"I don't mind her no more'u tbe dust
off my feet, but I feel so skittish-like, John;
wish 'erraydio if I hain't sorry we come.
I don't want'er get married, John."
' "Sty, Mister, fix ou your.papers," said
John. " Marryia's nuthin : no more'n
standlu' up iu spelliu' class at Oldfield
"Well, stand up," said tbe 'Squire.
But us the ceremony was under way the
girl Jeiktd back, exolaimiog : "I'll-be
Johndioged ef I do !'' ,
The 'i'a.uU-e suggested that tho liceuse
bad been given, aud tbey had gone most
too far to buck out now.
"That's so I" said John. "Stand fast,
Bally I Don't git nil lu'er quiver now,"
gently taking her arru. , "C'otn'or 'long In
place ; It's most over(wltli ;" and she sidled
As the 'Squire snid " I now pronounce
you man nod wifo I"
"Lud 'amoicy I" oiled the bride, tin' is
it done?" - ' - ;
" You bet 'tip easy ns spell In'; and now
we'll go," said tbe man aud they mounted
tho hoi so double oud rode out of town.
