form of a man at Ids bedside. Mr.
Itogors grappled nt onco with tho Intruder,
who hold in his hand a rovolvor, which
he discharged before ho was attacked, the
bull piercing Mrs. Kogcrs's groin. Then
ensued a deadly hand-to-hand struggle, in
which Mr. Itogen was twico shot, onco
in the arm aud once in tho abdomen, tho
hall lodging under tho skin In his back. He
is a powerful man, and was finally able to
overcomo the burglar and secure the
weapon. Meantime Mrs. Itogors had sent
her little daughter for tho maid to come
and bring a light, w hich alio herself as
sisted her liuslmnd, biting tho hand of the
burglar, so that he used the revolver only
with tho groateit dilliculty. Tho servant

and perfectly ulot, compiled of all of tho
Is'St citizens, aud largely of the sulmtantiul
merchant of tho city, (several secret

Memphis is passing through the same
ordeal now, and the sentiment against lha
enticing gaming establishments daily gains
scores of converts.
Tlio same causes which brought about
tumultuous protests iu other citios prevail
hore. Young men and beardless' boys
haunt the places daily, putting up money
on short horses, that never come in, as

of ita citizens hundreds, who cannot oe

temptations to risk money at heavy odds.

how they lost all later. As one victim put
it, "I bad enough money laid aside when
theao poolrooms opened to take a long
summer trip, and intended doing so; now
I haven t got a cent"
There can bo but ono senuol to thesa

fropriftors of theso gambling shops,

employers of the victims will sutler, tho

a jury will convict the prisoners, a Judge
