To the Editor, of the Appeal:
The many and very different an

thousand people were in the Muetic
Hall, the Odeon and the adjoining
nreeui in Cincinnati to hear Nam
Join lately, while the clinrcliea were
empty; and the Htaid Appeal auks.
Why empty? In it a mystery? Not
at all. it wan only curiosity. The
Roman Circus could Heat 100,000 eo-
ple, and it was always lull when elait
latora performed. What motive took
theo thousands to witness such re
volting scenes as were generally lire-
penW there? What but a blind ca
riosity 7 No pay, eood seats and
armed officials preservinir strict oriler.
The temples of the gods were always
open, dm never crowded, tirand
circus displays did not occur very
often. Why should not the latter be
patronised? Was religion moving

Sam Jones. Last summer, Sam, the
Willipoo-Wallopus of the gospel of
peace, was on the "grand rounds" in
Kentucky, and among others who
heard and sketched him was "Fal
con," the. widely-known correspond
ent oi a leading Kentucky naner.
Hear what "Falcon" says of this cir-
cus representative of a peripatetic
christionity. It is graphic, and par
lies wdo nave heard the Key.
Walloptw, tell me the garment
exactly fits . Willipus. "As Kun
stands now, he in a combination
of steel springs and chicken hawk ;
and, from a Presbyterian standpoint,
he seema fall of original sin in a con
densed fonri, and needs a vast amount

says ine negroes nave twice as much
religion of that sort as the whites, and
can do ten times the shouting; "yet
the negroes never raise any chickens
until uiey are largo enough to fry."
(This Inst idea sotto voce.) Can such a
caricature of a Christian minister-
such on apology for reverence have
any real piety 1 Could any Memphian
think such a creature is as well calcu
lated to tench Christian virtues as the
Rev. Din. Daniel, Boggs, Moore, Ven-
auie, manonr . t;oulil you possibly
imagine these ministers, whose Sab
bath sermons and daily w ork of reliev

sorrowing have endeared them to our
people 1 say could you possibly fancy
such truly good ahd pious divines
leaving their churches and taking
uit: granu rounus - witn such a pre
tentious missionary as Sam Jones?
And in this morning's Appeal is a
communication lrom a correspondent,
"Looker On," who says : "It was not
scientista or infidels, but Christian
missionaries that, after the sacking of

Hrlkna, Ark., February L'4. The
militical cauldron of Arkansas has
begun to Iwil. The news is wafted to
us that Judge t ate of Jonesboro, Ark.,
is going to oppose the Hon. Poindex
ter Dunn for Congress from tho First
District, Judge 11. Jj. Hutton of Ma
rianna, one of the most profound law
yers in Eastern Arkansas, has formal
ly announced himself as a candidate
for circuit judge of this district, com
posed of the counties of Phillips,
Lee, St. Francis, Woodruff, White,
Monroe and Prairie counties.
From all parts of the State the rum
bling of the approaching candidates
can lie heard. Gov. Simon P.
Hughes, as an executive, has eiven
eminent satisfaction to the iteonle of
the State, and there is but little prob
ability that he will have an opponent,
unless the many warm friends of that
eminent 'gentleman, Col. John G.
Fletcher of Little Rock, persuade him
to become such. There is no doubt
but that the colonel is about the only
man that could stand the irhost of a
show against Gov. Hughes for a sec
ond term. Col. E. R. Moore. Secre
tary of State, and Treasurer Woodruff
will hardly have any opponents. A
number of gentlemen in dimtmnt
parts of the State are being groomed

An engineer on the main line of
the Iron Mountain and Southern rail
way related to us an experience that
we presume nas lew nam e x in mil
road hihtory. He was pulling the
north-bound passenger some four
weeks ago, during the intensely cold
spell of January, and the train was
about two hours late. Instructions
were received to make up us much
time as possible in order to make St.
Louis connections. The rest is better
told in the engineer s own laneuaire :
"I had on a (rood bitr head of steam.
and was forging along at the rate of
forty milosan hour. All portions of the
road over which wo were traveling
were as familiar to me us my own
room. We were rushine down a hi?
grade that I knew was near a smalt
river that had, however, a macniliccnt
sieei oriiige spanning it, and we never
thought of slacking up for it. On the
banks of the river was a railroad tank,
but as I had plenty of water there was
no need of my stopping. As I neared
the river I instructed the fireman to
fire .up, as just beyond the river we
had a steep grade to pull over. He
was shoveling in the coal, and I kent
a good lookout ahead ; but imagine
my horror when, within twenty feet
of the bridge, to see a great white bulk
stretched across the track. I felt my
hair raise on my head and at the
same time one of the most neculiar
sensations I ever felt in my life to
thrill through me. By the time I
could reverse my engine and put on
the brakes the object had been reached
and the engine went dashing over it.
"I called out to my fireman to look
out for himself, as we were going to
the bottom. Realizing that if he
jumped off it would be certain death,
I threw out my hand, and cautrht him
just in tho act of plunging headfore
most into the river. The engine stuck
to the track, however, and came to a
standstill iust across the bridge. I
called up the conductor, and we went
back to the bank to see what the ob
ject was. We found that a train,
some time during the night, had taken
on water and fuiled to shut off the
valve. The contents of the tank had
been emptied on the track, which had I
become frozen us hard as adamant, j
covering the rail fully eight inches.
"The heavy locomotive, nx it duhhimI
over the ice, matio but little impres
sion upon it, antl surely there was
something providential that guided
my train over the ice, for you must
remember that the ice did not break
or scale off. Tho flanges of the heavy
driving-wheels made an indenture in
tho ice about the size of mv tinuer.
The baggage, mail antl express cam,
three passenger coaches and three
Pullman sleepers, all full of people,
followed in the groove cut out by the
heavy driving-wheel. I never pass
over inn inace niow without a
shuddur and feeling the peculiar sen
sation of that night shooting through
me. i ne strangest part ol the busi
ness was that the momentum of the
engine was sufficient to shoot it square
ahead. I firmly believe that if we had
keen going our regular schedule rate,
twenty miles an hour, instead of forty,
that my bones would have been at the
bottom of that river now.
"Not one of the passengers knew
how near they had been to the brink
of a horriblo death. I have been on
the road eighteen years, and consitler
tlmt the closest call I ever had."
