A Touchlhg Letter from Mack Fcrrell.
(Kdltor Interior Jou'tial.J
Stanford Jail, Oct. 4. If you will
kindly tflve mo spaco In your paper I
would like to express tny gratitude for
tho kindness that lins been shown me.
First to my people, whom I will never
censo to love. Secondly to tho kind and
christian friends who have extended to
mo their sympathy and good advicn during
my incarceration. Hut a few days
remain until tho grated doors, the
gloomy walls, the cold and dismal cell
and convict's gnrb of the State prfeon
Hovers my life from theirs. God and
God alono knows that now nor never
did I harbor any malico toward anybody,
and so help mo God, that today after
maturo deliberation and not under sudden
fear of mr own life, if I had a thou
eand lives I would pivo them all in that
manv forms if I could bring back my
friend, tho kind and loving husband, the
fond and Indulgent father. I wish to
oxiend my hoartfelt devotion to my
friends and especially to my counsel that
did all in thoir power In my defense
To tho ministers and christian Indies who
have given to mo good advice In tho salvation
of my soul, but they know that
for such thuy will lie rownrded, and also
do I wish to thank thoso who have had
charge of mo during my imprisonment.
To my family, of courso, I bid to them
the saddest adieu; to my poor old mother,
to a loving sister and brothers, I ran
simply say, think of mo as littlo as
trust in an all-merciful God, hold
no 111 feeling or malico against anybody
and In a better hereafter I hope to meet
you. And In conclusion, I will Bay to
my young associates that my prayers
will ever bo for them. Stay tit home
with your fathers I and mothers, heed
their advice, shun all places, If possible,
where there is any probability that in
defense of your own life you will have to
tako life. With these few words of parting,
I resign myself as best I can to my
living tomb. Very Respectfully Yours,
The Races at Lexington to be Run.
I To the Kdltor Interior Journal.)
This letter was intended for last caper
but did not reach here till Friday morning.
LixiNfiTO.v, Oct. fith. I mu in Monday's
I.vtriuohJol'Iinal, which, by the
way, does not reach hero until Wednesday
morning, that you have been made
to believe that there will be no fall running
races here. That is a very ll.it
mistake. Tho programs are already
printed and there will bonlno days' running
for purses of $250, live or more
races each day; beginning Oct. 10th, and
more than one Lincoln county horse will
compete for tho purses, Bmall though
they are, and some first-class horses will
bo hero to race from other places. Stable
room has been asked for such a number
that all tho yearling here Imvu been ordered
ofl tho track to accommodate those
that will race during the meeting. So, if
you have not thrown aside all your taste
for speculation, you can come and bring
your frionds with you; it will be at least
equal to investments at Middleaboro,
Could hatonia have gone on uninterrupted,
there would have been troubled
acqulescenso here. Hut when the
morn grow into a threatening storm to
prohibit pool-selling throughout tho
State, If IJitonla ignored tho rights of all
other meetings, tho modest manager of
that courso decided to discontinue. However
the breeders and board of this neso
ciation had already determined to give
tho usual meeting hero anyway. Tho
Cumberland i'ark Association at Nashville
had ho determined too, and so now
they go on without nearby conllicting
The Cincinnati Enquirer is a great pa-per,
but it cannot run tho race courses of
this country just yet a little while
and all tho prompting encouragement it
gave did not avail against the sentiment,
the proposition to continue at Latonia
stirred throughout the country. Tho'
it did succeed in its cry against Hardy
Durham, In Rotting him ruled off that
course (suspended indefinitely) when ho
was trying to win. Hut it was necessary
to do something and ho foil under the
ban. Tho man who bought Rook
as honest a turfman as lives, has
raced him repeatedly since and won
nothing. But when a monkey quill-driver
loses his cigars, or a whole $2 bill

E. M. Cooker, of Pulaaki, who waa
tried in Louisville last week for illicit
whisky Belling. His plan was to keep
hlmswlf hidden from public gaze, an in
nocent looking wooded bucket dangling
from a small window In tie Becond story
being apparently the only jjuilty party.
Thewould.be purchaser simply put tho
money and a bottle in the swinging
bucket and it disappeared up Btairs, returning
presently with tho liquor which
the money called for. Cooker laid it on
his mother-in-law, Mrs. Shepard, but the
Jury found him guilty.

Another Dark-Eyed Widow Playing the
Deuce With Bobbltt In the Mountains.

tho docket. What n Held for Judgo J.

I did notBpenk hero last night, saving
my throat for tho Jphn Martin murder
trial set lor today. TIiIb court is to continue
five weeks. This is tho finest place
to stay I over Baw except Crab Orchard.
Quite tin episode occurred in the courthouse
A little curly-headed girl camo run
ning in and in a loud voice said: "Mr.
Uobbltt, Bister Bald for you to enme
down thero." Tho lfur und spectators
roared with laughter and even Judge
Hall, who never laughs more than King
Henry the 4th, was seen to smile audibly.
J followed the littlo girl, blushing
deeply, nnd when I arrived nt tho stately
mansion where tho lady wns stop
ping, I found a beautiful woman dressed
like n princess. She said "And this is
the celebrnted otator, Fontaino Fox
Bobbin?" To which I modestly assented.
For more than two hours I was
highly entertained by a most olegant lady.
In a fow days she will tako her departure
for Knoxville, where she resides.
Another dark-eyed widow now holds
my heart in thrall. She lives in Ferry
county and innocently said "1'apa is
worth $10,000." I said "I am very
to hear it. My magnificent blue-grass
farm and half-hundred short-horn
milk cows lowing to their calves across
my barn yard gate will not induce you
to migrate to Crab Orchard. You muBt
get tho old gentleman to invest his fortune
in some hazardous enterprise so ho
will loose all his money und then perhaps
I cau induce you to go with me."
In talking of engagements she Bald alio
did not believo in long engagements.
She eaid when lovers are youug it is well
onough, but when they are getting along
in life liko wo are there is no time to
wait. This waa rather withering on a
man who prides himself on his youthful
appearance. Hut I told her tho greatest

Nashville, Tenn., March C, 1893 The
Stockton Medicine Co., Nashville, Tenn.,
Gentlemen: It gives me exceeding
fleaaura to speak of your Antiseptic, as
consider it something wonderful in the
way of medicine. My old servant, Albert,
who is 72 years old, was very sick
with Pneumonia, complicated with
Heart Trouble and Dropsy. I called in
my family physician and gave him every
attention, but the doctor finally told me
there was no hope and the only thing
that could be done was to make him
comfortable until the end. At this
point I decided to give him Stockton's
Antiseptic, as it Eeemed to be
almost miracles for others. It was
given in regular doses every three hours
and the fever began to decrease from the
first dose and a decided improvement
was noticed the first day. In three
days he was sitting up and in a week he
was back at bis work as usual, and is
retraining in strength very fast. I
believe it saved the old
man's life. Respectfully yours,
No. 5 Noel Block.
