A LEAP FOR LIFE COURAGE
OUS ACT OF A YOUNG LADY OF
The Sumter Republican, of the 17th in
ttant, after giving an account of a de
structive lire in that town, goes on to say:
"There it one act connected with this
calamity deserving particular mention,
which caused a display of bravery and
courage never sui passed and but seldom
equalled, and which marks its author as
a perfect heroine. Mist Sallie Maxwell,
In her efforts to save everything of Value
in the house that she could, was delayed
iu the second storv of the building until
the fire had destroyed the lower story so
much that there was danger of the walls
falling in every minute. Seeing her dan
ger, .-he gathered a few articles for the
purpose of taking a final b-avc of tho
houte. On entering the hall from the
room she was in, to her horror and dis
may she saw that the stabs, was in a sol
id sheet of flame. There was only oue
way of escape now, and that wan through
the upper windowt, where the fiery ele
ment had not communicated itself. Go
ing out on the top of thccolonadc her aw
ful 'situation was immediately realized by
I h M'tt' tl judnw .and thai mU'n.!
feeling that stirred the tool of every one.
A laddtirwat brought, but it was too
short to reach the roof, and was of no a
vail. Jnttli the crackling flames behind
and around, and making the most rapid
headway imaginable, every moment was
precious beyond computation. Tbconly
chance for life now was to jump from the
high place on which she was standing.
A mattress was brought,, and bciug firm
ly held Ly strong men, with a spirit rn
daxnicd and intrepid, she made tbe leap
from the point she occupied, embracing in
its curve at least sixty feet, reaching the
ground with comparative safety, and,

The wholo philosophy of the manufac
ture id vinegar Is included in the- word
oxydathn, the alcohol contained in elder,
beer, or wine, combining with tha ay
gen of the atmosphere, becomes acetic ac
id, which, in a diluted state, is vinegar.
x iic uiemoas usually pursued tn tbe do
mestic manufacture of tbit article are, to
to say the least of them, tusceptable ol
improvement. The colversion of cider
into good vinegar, by exposure to the air
in casks, requires weeks, and cved months
to accomplish, because only a small sur
facnls exposed at one time to the oxydiz
ing action of the atmosphere. By expos
ing a larger surface ot the liquor to tbo
aimospherc, oxydation takes place with
corresponding rapidity, and the process
may be completed in from twenty-four to
fnj ty-eigh t hoars. The method of accom
plishing this rapid acetification, which baa
long been known to acientific men and
manufacturers, may be pursued, without
difficulty, in private houses, at follows :
Take a clean flour barrel, and bore auger
boles all around the sides, and in the bot
tom ; set it over a flat tub or cask, and
fill it light with beech shavings, which
have been soaked In vinecar. On th
top of this barrel, which it open, lay two
strips of wood, and retting on these a
pail filled with cider, beer, or tho like. -
Procure twelve or fifteen lengths of cotton
wicking, about thirty inches long j which,
after dipping in the liquid, nrranfr wuJ
sv ...t oiic-enu oi earn wlcx will Be nang-
ing in the cider, and the other one hang
ing down outside, and below tbe bottom
of the 'pail. By means of these wicks,
the pail will gradually ba emptied of ila
contents, which, trickling over the shav
ings, will be exposed "to the air. absorb
oxygen, and finally be received in tha
tub benoath. By returning tbo liquor in
to tbe pail above, and suffering thit trick
ling process to be repeated two or three
timet, a splendid vinegar will be obtain
ed. The whole secret of the process lies
in the mechanical increase of surface ac
complished by the shaving.
