I udgo John D. Cunningham, of

?omember a single instance where a

dancen where unprincipled men, in
ipito of the terrors of impending
leath, hell and the grave, have told
lalpablo lies in order to wreak ven
tanee through tho law on their eno

IOIIB of bad men, it will bo bettor
br the cause of justice; for thei u
loems to bo a kind of superstitious
'overenee, tonding to persuade, that

t is generally understood by them
hat they all go to heaven, and ?
vish it were true, but cannot boliovo
t. Tho last man on whom I passed
lenience debauched his neighbor's
vifo, then waylaid, murdered and
uiriod the husband in a swamp.
STet upon tho gallows ho asserted
hat ho was going to hoavon, and in
ho same breath made u palpably
'also statement concerning his guilt,
jlood men toll tho truth, both in life

than New York, seven times as

his companions. This particular ono
tried every kind of snoring. Ile
bogan low and gently and then pulled
out ono stop after another, until the
sound resembled a steam piano with
a plaining mill accompaniment. As
tho noise increased tho preacher
became restless. He rolled over and
groaned and grunted and writhed in
agony. Tho snoring continued. It
would run up and down and go with
a jerk over rough places. At last a
succession of snorts came which
wero followed by profound silence.
Tho preacher then gave a deep sigh
of relief and devoutly said : "Thank
God, ho's dead at last."
