Charleston and Memphis Play an Old-
Charleston. S. C., Oct. 4.-An old-time
game was played this afternoon between
Memphis and Charleston, the home umpire

were scarce, very few men succeeding in
landing the ball outside the diamond.

HAVEL FROM A HAREM.
The Story of Capt. Samuels—How Two
Sea Captains Aided a Lady to Escape
from a Turkish Pasha
From die Youth's Companion.
Capt. Samuels, while waiting at Constan
tinople for repairs on his ship Manhattan,
became acquainted with a Swede, a Capt.
H , whose ship was also lying in the har
bor. One afternoon the two captains, with
eight or ten others, were passing, as their
custom was. through the street which led
to the lauding whence they took tiieir boats
to go on board their ships. Blank walls
twenty feet high extended nOO feet along
tioth sides of the street and inclosed the
palaces of two pashas.
Only the windows of the tipper stories
could be seen. One of these windows was
suddenly thrown open and a beautiful
woman apjieared at it. She threw something
over the wall and closed the window.
It was a note and all the captains rushed
to pick it up. Tic Swede pocketed it. On
arriving at the landing he invited Capt.
Samuels on board his ship.
Once on board the note was opened by
the Swede, who read it. and. with great
agitation, handed it to Capt Samuels, say
mg: “Read and tell me wuat to do.” Tim
note was written in a good English hand
and read as follows:
“I know you are Christians and will save
me from this life of degradation lntoaibed
in this harem, 1 appeal to you to save me.
God, I know, will open your hearts, give
wisdom, and guide you to morrow night to
a silken thread thrown from this window,
near where you found my note. To the
thread attach your answer. 1 >eath awaits
‘•I will tnarry her if we rescue her and if
she will consent I” exclaimed the romantic
Swede, laying his right hand reverently on
the ship’s Bible. He afterward kept his
The two captains laid their plans. The
next night they remained on shore, know
ing that being suilors they could, with the
aid of piasters, pass the gates of the streets,
though Ihey were closed at night.
The two captains, ap|>arently half drunk,
staggered up to the guards, handed them
I lUO piasters, and passed through the gate,
• Each tarried the usual paper lantern and
j was well armed. The thread was found
| and their note of reply attached. The note
I was pulled up.
The note said that on the fifth night they
would attach a strong line to the end of the
cord, and to it a rope-lad ler, which she was
to pull up. Directions were given a-s to how
sue was to secure the ladder and descend it.
The next night an answer read that the
lady, assisted by a trusty eunuch, would
provide the ladiler, which they must null
toward them by a cord weighted by a silken
purse containing jewels, it mlso bade them
think well of the uaugor as death would lie
the penalty if they were dis<s>vered.
On the eventful night, the two captains
reached the gate, apparently in a drunken
condition, feed the guards as before, passed
through, found the cord and the purse. The
cord was pulled gently, ami drew down a
la lder made of silk.
The two captains put their weights u]>on
it to keep it from swaying. A burden was
felt upon it. and a min in a white tunic
sprang from the ladder, muttered some
thing, sprang up the ladder, and disap
Presently the strain announced that some
one was descending. It was the lady. Hhe
sprang to the ground, followed by tuc man,
her faithful slave. Falling on his knees, he
begged to be taken with her. It was impos
sible, a- it would precipitate the discovery
ol her flight.
The lady was calm and the party passed
through ihe gate, throwing a handful of
piasters on the ground. While the guard
van picking up the money Capt. Samuels
locked the gate and threw away the key.
Hearing tramping feet behind, they hur
ried to the boat, pulled a- quietly as possible

way at once, that she might be iu the Sea of
Marmora beiore sunrise.
Cant. Samuel returned to his own vessel
and in a lew days sailed for Odessa. On his
return he was warned lint to stop at Con
stantinople, as he was suspected of a ding

the Turkish army. He ran by the forts,
and received shots which did iiim uo barm.
An Odd Royal Favor

oldest of Ins subjects and found him a hale
and si 11 hearty \eieran of ldd, comfortably
seat-sI in an old arm-chair, enjoying his
inseparable companion—a short pitie. On
the approach of ihe King he rose, and
advauee 1 a few steps, but the King made
him sit down, and conversed quite freely,
whb him, the pipe, however, not leaving
tli old man’s lips a minute. On parting,
thi- King as ted him if he had any wish that
he coul 1 gratilA . "So, Your Majesty,’’
was tne reply, ‘H thank you; I have every

KEELEY’S MOTOR MOVES.
It Comes from Philadelphia to New
York on a Train
From the Sew York S tar.
The distinguished inventor. Mr. Keeley,
of Philadelphia, whose motor has effected
such a startling revolution in the world's
industry, is stopping for a few days at the
Clarendon Hotel, at Fourth avenue and
Seventeenth street. He lias come to New
York to rest from his invention* and to
give liis stockholders a few days to count
their dividend*. It may l>e given out as a
fiction unknown to people in general, that
tne Volunteer, during tie- recent rare, hail a
Keeley motor aboard. This motor clearly
proved it* superiority to the triple expan
sion engine which the Thistle carried under
Mr. Keeley is in the best of humor over
the perennial success of his inventions. The
mere fact that stock in the Keeley Motor
Company has gone up ‘J* - . a pound, and now
leads the alie.i rags of Egypt by a quarter
of a cent, lends a strong air of probability
to the rumor that the Keeley motor is about
to tie adopted by ail the manufacturers and
owners of tall buildings in New York. Mr.
Keeley remains suspiciously mysterious
about his machine, which was pej-feoted
tlitre months ago and is now, so to speak,
readr for the retail market. It is said that
toy Keeley motors of one-haif mule power,
and strong enough to run a sewing ma
chine. will, in a few days, tie sold by hand
cart men on all the principal streets of the
There is a rival inventor to Mr. Keeley in
town. The Philadelphian was somewhat
surprised to see at breakfast yesterday
morning Mr. McGuffiu, of Fond du Lac,
VS’is., the inventor of the McGuttin motor.
Mr Keeley seowied across the table at Mr.
M'-Guflin. Mr. McGuffiu returned the scowl
with interest. Mr. Keeley disdainfully arose
from the table and sought the smoking
Interest in the McGuffiu motor at present
Mir] lasses that in the Keeley motor, and the
stockholders in the former enterprise are
trying to unload their stock with that spirit
of altruism which is often shown by the
owners of an Arizona silver mine.
The McGuffin motor is based on anew
principle in mechanics. Everybody knows
that butter is strong. Sometimes it is so
strong that it is popularly said that it can
walk. Litnburger cheese is universally ad
mitted to be strong. Mr. McGuffin pro
poses to take this rare strength which be
longs to odors and apply it to machinery.
He says that it will surpass Mr. Keeley’s
force, and that with an ounce of Limhurger
cheese lie can produce more power than
Keeley can with a thimbleful ol ether.
If the mechanical power afforded by the
rise of a single tide in New York Bay might
be utilized it would move all the machinery
in the world. Mr. McGuffiu claims that if
he could utilize the odors made in a single
day in Hunter’s Point he could move all the
machinery in the world and have plenty of
power to spare. He nas invented a huge
machine to bottle and apply as a mechanical
power the enormous strength of these vari
ous odors, which are now suffered lo go to
waste. A series of huge sweeps, like those
of a Holland windmill, gather these odor*
into the central reservoir by a process which
is a part of the mysterious secret of the in
vention and inert pable of being under
stood, just as Mr. Keeley’* ether and motor
are profound secrets ami beyond the under
standing of anybody.
In regions where the air is absolutely
puie ihe McGuffin moter may be run oil
stale butter. A pound of ordinary packed
butter would furnisti enough power to run
a rolling mill for a week. A single ounce
of Lira burger cheese would run all the facto
ries and elevators in New York for a month.
Oleomargarine would furnish still stronger
power than either of the others for the new
Mr. McGuffin has applied for a patent for
his new motor, and will trv to introduce it
in .St. I Amis, Chicago and Pittsburg, where
strong odors are abundant and free. Hunt
ers Point will lie the headquarters of the
new motor company in the East, and here
most of its machines will be set up. It is
confidently lielieved that the odors in Hunt
