A arrow Escape from a Terrible D1m
The passengers on the Carolina Cen
. ral train which came in last night riar
Jwly escaped a dreadful fatality, a
short distance below Polkton yesterday.
The train was composed of the usual
ii umber of passenger cars and a half doz
en or more freight cars. As it was com
ing down the grade and turning the
eurve near the first of two trestles across
small stream.theforemost truck of the
inst-class car jumped the track. As
soon as the conductor felt the jar, he
pulled the bell cord and the brakes were
l,ut on and the engine1 reversed; as
quickly as possible, but owing to the
length of the train, and the rate at
v inch it was going, it was impossible
to stop it before the trestle was reach
ed Some of the passengers looked out
hiiu saw the danger, and two of them
leaped from the car. The first trestle'
was cleared and still the train did not
su p. The jarring caused by the1 wheels
Jinnping over the cross-ties added tor
uie confusion "and alarm among the
passengers. The next trestle, less than
hity yards distant,' was reached, and it
was not until the trucks had jumped
Ji f teen or twenty of the cross-ties on tpis,
that the train 'came to a standstill.
hen the passengers got out, they re
alized the danger through , which they
had passed. Tlie wheels had broken
may of the cross-ties on both trestles.
and were then resting within a.few
inches of the end. The escape was al
most miraculous. One of the r passen
gers who jumped from tlve train . was

Close riffbt. - -"
Almost the same faces which appear-"
ed in the cock pit day before yesterday
were again there on the last day f the
fight, but they wore more anxious and;
excited expressions, especially towards
the close, ot the main. A iew being
unable to stand the pressure of demor
alization resorted to the winie cups, and
hence the order was not so good as on
the first day, though there were no dis
turbances. ; " ' :'- ' "-',!
First Fight North Carolina showed
a ginger red of Sim Jenkins and Dusty
Miller, mixed breed, weight 5 :8 ; South
Carolina, red Nub Comb, weight 5:8.
llather slow fighters and neither seem
ed to have the advantage for the first
four or five deliveries. The ginger finally
struck his antagonist in the head and
he was carried out of the pit. Time,
10 minutes. .
Second Fight North Carolina, span
gled Phillips cock, 5:8; South Carolina,
dark red Pink Howell, 6:8. Even and
lively fight for the first two or three de
liveries, but the red lost first one and
then the other eye, while the spangled
also seemed to be pretty severely pun
ished. The red showed game till the
last, striking at his antagonist when
ever he could tell where he was. The
spangled at last suddenly left the pit in
a brisk trot. Time, 23 0,
Third Fight North Carolina show
ed a dark lied Horse,1 5:10; South Caro
lina. 'red Nub Comb, 5:11. Flew at each
other from the jump. On the first de
livery the dark red inflicted a cut on
his antagonist and received one him
self. On the fourth delivery he struck
the Nub Comb a blowr in the head,
when the latter jumped and fell dead
on his back. Time, 4.
Fourth Fight North Carolina, a sil
ver grav Jenkins and lied Horse, 5:14;
South Carolina, red Nub Comb, 5:12,
Short sharp and decisive. Both flew
high and stood up'To each "other until
the Bilver gray drove a gaftthrough the
head of his antagonist, killing him in
the pit. Time, 1 :30. ' ?
Fifth Fight. North Carolina.a bright
red "Flary Eye," 5:15; South Carolina,
silver gray cross on Sim Jenkins, 5:13.
The gray' seemed to be the stronger
cock from the beginning and held the
advantage throughout, the red seemed
to do his best, reviving towards the last.
On the fifth delivery he received a blow
in the head and trotted out of the pit.
The pitter of the red claimed another
chance, but his cock refused to fight.
Sixth Fight South Carolina;' red
dominique, Georgia ,breed, 6; North
Carolina, silver gray cross on Sim Jen
kins, 6. The gray" was game enough,
but a poor fighter, and the dominique
nid not press his advantage. Both cocks
were slightly injured at the close of the
fifth delivery. On the sixth delivery
the gray received a. wound in the body,
which produced bleeding at the mouth.;
fell and tried to come, but failed. Time,
Seventh Fight. North Carolina, dark
gray, same breed as above, 5 :15 ; South
Carolina, dark red Welshlegger, 6. In
the very first buckle the gray had his
leg broken above the knee, disabling
hiin, but he continued to fight bravely
notwithstanding the red inflicted a
half dozen wounds in the head and
neck, from the effects of which lie final
ly died. Time, 19.
Eighth Fight North Carolina, dark
red Jenkins, mixed breed, 6:3; South
Carolina, White Tarter, 6:2. Both in
fine condition, and neither seemed to
have the odds. The white received two
cuts, but recovered and dealt his antag
onist a head stroke which laid him over
on the fifth delivery. Time, 720.
Ninth Fight North Carolina, gray
Johnston's stock, 6:4; South Carolina,
Nub Comb, breed known as "Yaller-4
Gal," C :3. The hardest fought battle of
the day. Both hit hard licks and cut
each other pretty badly, being high fly
ers. The gray received all his wounds
about the neck ; the red on the fifth de
livprv pot a ojir, in Mia hack which
caused a deep rattfe. He showed signs
of flagging from this on, and finally
ran. (This is the first South?1' Carolina
cock that has run during the main.)
Time, 22. : '
This ended the main, the result of
the day's fightning being South Caroli
na 5 to North Carolina 4; the result of
the main being North Carolina 10,
South Carolina 8.
When the last fight ended the North
Carolina backers gave a yell that might
have been heard a half dozen blocks.
4'hey had almost despaired of winning
the main, having lost the four fights
immediately precedingthis one, when it
was generally believed that the result
would be a draw.
The fighting throughout the day was
better than that had the day before.
The betting was not so large at first,but
increased towards the last, until on the
final . fight both sides risked almost
everything they had lett.
