tending, and In n fat trot wo drove down
by the hotel where the Ku-klux prisoners
were guarded, and Into a livery stuble lo
cated In ti corner ol the square.
In my other letter 1 said that llenton
was composed of 700 Inhabitants and
eleven lawyers. When my friend Uncus
and mysi.'ll drove into the stable at least
three of the eleven Inwycrs and an odd
looking small boy entered. Tho latter
gazed at Dacus for a moment, then
walked up to me, ami took mi' by the
coat-sleeve, saying : K

I was about to say "He Is Mr.Dactts. of

appeared between the three lawyers, and
sped away to win re the prisoners rumi
nated over their folly, and reported tho
AKIitVAL 01- tlti: fSOVKKSOH.
Leaving the llverv-sUiblc wc walked to
the hotel, and present a very handsome
man (and they certainly have handsome
men In llenton ), one of the three law
ers. approached me, saying:
Turdon inc. are you gentlemen re

1 equivocated, as Dacns and myselfhad
determined to keep quiet lu tact, reti
cent and mysterous, and take all kinds of
items, and write them up in a grand med
ley, and astonMi the good iieople of Hen
ton. Here was a formidable obstacle to a
pursuance of that line of policy in the
shape of a man weighing two hundred
pound and a lawyer.
"Vou see, we have been expecting
von," he said persuasively, as he button
holed mv duster.
"We are, sir," I reluctantly replied.
The "guvnur" was the centre of at
traction, face and hands dripping water,
and looking maliciously at thu small boy
who gazed with undisguised admiration
into his lace.
"My name Is Cautrell, sir. W hat pa
per da you represent':"
"The Chicago Timti."
"Ah, Indeed ! Your name, sir?"
'Ocelot! Oh. ho ! blue-tall fly cor

in an undertone.

said the atfable Mr. Cautrell, "then meet

D.icus and myself sat down to a Benton

to the arrival ot myself and thu "guv

wrolc our dispatches were tho costumes
of the Ku-klux white robes, white
musks, and bill, peaked while hats.
Tnesu were trimmed with black cloth,
and spots of blood on them marked where
warm human blood had spurted from
deep, and perhaps fatal wounds. Sad
dles a'ld old hats were also In the heap ;
and a gun and pistol were pointed out to
us as the weapons of young Duckworth.
We asked to seu tho prisoners, when
Mr. Cautrell, who was our e'eort during
our stay in Kenton, said:
"Wait until alter dark. It would cre
ate a sensation to visit them now."
Night came, nnd with It a chill wind,
that sobbed nnd sighed through the lo
cust trees In the square, A mist hung
over the wet town, and only a murmur
of voices could he heard in the direction
of thu hotel prison. The transition had
been great from a city of one-halt mil
lion inhabitants to a town of seven hun
dredand eleven lawyers.

cartridges with a vim.
Cant. Hogan addressed them

railing of the long porch, were the two
prisoners Capt. Green Cautrell and Aa

" This way. gentlemen ! "
Wc passed through a room filled with
armed men, up n flight of stairs, and
were inhered Into thu conipanv of Neal
and Cantrell. After an introduction, l
" Gentleman, we arc correspondents of
newspapers St. Louis nnd Chicago and
are anxious to get a statement from you.
as wc do not wish to do you injustice hi
our letters from llenton, nor do wc ak

" 1 know my rights," said Neal, In a
grating, harsh voice; "and anything I
could say would do mc no harm."
We had caught a Tartar and, to take
his word for it, a very innocent and
1 looked to D.icus for relief, and soon
saw thegeiilalfuceofthe "guvnur'" light
up with confidence.
"Mr. Neal, pardon me ; but you had a

forward and riveted Neal with a benign
" Yes, I nnd a lather," said Neal in his
jarring, grating way.

Wu next entered the room where
young Duckworth lay. He rested upon
his back unable to move Irom (hat posi
tion. A bullet had tilt him back ot the
right ear. one hi the right side ol his neck,
and one in the right arm. The "guvnur"
went straight Into the young man's affec
tions, who talked right along under thu
Infliction ot questions,
"Did you have any ritual in vour
bands ."' 1 queried.
"Any ritual any oath or obligation,
to bind you together?"
"Oli, yes sir f"
"How long have yon been a member"
"At least a mouth."

"Xeal. Hu led us."

by giving III in correct Ku-klux grips-,
which he had picked up as hu rummaged
around peach-brandy still houses, in
.search of Kit-Wlux. on the linu between
Alabama and Mississippi.
THK "GUV.VEK'8" CONCLUSIONS.
"These filgns aru the same that existed
in the south duringthu reign ol Ku-klux-liiu
in Teimusseu aud Alabama. '1 he or
giiuUatlons in those states were broken
up, and many of their members hunted
new homes, which they found In south
ern Illinois. Here tho order was again
establUhed and now exists, with tho
same rules and penalties to govern it as
existed hi tlio southern statea."
"True," I responded.
"ThU Is a productive country, and Its
peoplo aro clever and generous; but, Mr.
Ocelot, the majority ot them aro very ig
norant." "True again, sir."
'Whv, some of them have never seen
a railroad or train of cars. They talk of
u plunk road nnd telegraph! The house
wives would hang their wet
linen on the wires, Mr. Oce
lot, it they could reach them.
Dense Ignorance prevails among them hi
regard to the rapid strides of science.
These peoplu I mean the ignorant onea
aro the atipodes to progress."
"Indeed, very true, 'guvnur,'"
Dacus and myself retired to ln-d that
jilght feeling there was a screw loose in

1 That sunbeam warned the "guvnur" and
myself thut more notes had to bo looked

1 to the morning meal awaiting iih. At
the table we met a talkative gentleman.
"Will they ever be punished r Did
you say that?" he mll, looking at me.
"No! They will all be turned loose.
Then what ? The bush, sir the amo as

Yes, sir. On Webb's prairie six men
wero seen In white uniforms, riding

of any Ku-klux? Certainly. It Is re
ported on good mithorliy that a man
named Vaucll has ten sets of those mil

this county, bordering on Saline and WIN
llamson enmities. All were dressed In
uniforms. They pa-seil him by and did
not say ti word. In is:."!, in the month
of October, a man named Wilson, who
lived about nine miles northeast of Mur
