I eometines answered by the
contempt of silence, and some
times replied that I would have
no objection to their religion if
they would keep it to themselves, and
not be flaunting it in my fac? on
every street corner, aud from every
hired pulpit and press.
After a while I got tired ot
talking theology as a gratuity, and
concluded to try to turn a penny

Then as s'on as I didn't want
to talk it, they changed their
minds and liked to get me started
on that subj ct.
When a fellow writes a news
paper every week, and keeps up
his end of a big correspondence,
and looks over sixty iiewspajers,
and keeps himself up in the cur
rent literature of magazines and
books, he don't hanker much after
talking with the average man, as
an intellectual recreation!
The other day I was sitting in
the ladU-e' room of the Queen &
Crescent station at Lexington,
absorbed iu a Democratic editorial,
when a very bright and handsome
Georgetown doctor walked up to
me and said, ''What is your opin
ion of the existence of a Deity?"
His idea seemed to be that I could
answer that question about as
easily as I could give my opinion
of the ('Lilian racket; whereas to
do even such justice to the sub
ject as even I am capable oi doing,

But of course I told him in the

to do when we said circuit nances
would allow, though of course,
fragmentary and incongruvial.
VTben I was safely delivered of
the theological banMing, and was
"doing as well as could be expected
under the circumstance' that is
environments, I remembered Mr.
Blaine's great idea of reciprocty,
and ak d the Doctor what was
his opinion of theology in general
and in the concrete. I know a
good many dictionary words, and
whenever I can use one that I
don't kuow the meaning of, I

The Doctor informed ni that
until recently he had b.en skepti
cal in his views, but that recently
he had been cou verted to Christi
anity purely by the evidence in
the case, aud that now he was
a member of the Caiiipbclii'e
church that's what he called it
and a Sunday-school teacher.
I asked him what he had rend.
He said lie had read the New
Testament through, aud was now
starting the Old Testament.

all religion with me, aud I asked

there would be something soci

But as soon as I mentioned the
name St. Johu, he told me, with
a cbi?alric shudder, that he would
uot vote for any man who had
whipped his trife.
For a few moments it so flat
tened me out that our great
champion ol woman and Prohibi

that I just collapsed, and began to
look for something else to read in

I asked him w here he got that

she is a saint.
He was not exactly prepared to
give the source of his information,
but he insisted that it was gener
ally admitted by the friends, male
and female, of the Ex-Governor
that his regular mode of exercise
was thrashing his wife.
Now remember that this gen
tleman was not a country bumpkin
from way back, but a learned
physician who used long diction
ary words until they made my
head swim, as I had not had any
dinner, and was feeling a little
rickety in consequence of the
pathologic sympathy between my
esophagus and cerebrum.

There are millions of people
who have not the courage to do
right simply because it is right,
but they will do it if they can get
enough others to go in with them
to make it popular. They always
tell you they don't want to throw
their votes away, but will vote
for Prohibition when they think
it has any chance to win."
To help people of this kind the
National Prohibition Executive
Committee, or the New York
Voice, has gotten up what the
call the "Million vote pledge.
Jn mar p. edge each man agrees
to v te lor the Prohibition candi
dates for President and Vice Pres

will promise to do the eame thing.

I was getting signatures to one
of 'these pledges, and 1 went t a
man who has been a professor iu
Georgetown college, and who is
tody one of the pillars and sup
ports of the Baptist church here.
I presented him one of these
blanks to see if he would sign it.
There were on it only a tew names,
but they were the vi ry best meu
in the town.
I did not know how he stood
politically, but he was a nice good
man and a good, g me rally intclli-

ticed however that he did not sign
the pledge. I asked him how he
stood on the Honor traffic, and
found he was frantically opposed
to it. I still could not tell
whether lie was a' Prohibitionist.
and asked him if he voted for
Fisk and Brooks.
lie said no, and that he would
not vote for any men who were
'final cial failures." I said to him
"Gen. Fisk was not only a success
as a capitalist, but he was a hu
manitarian and has given away a

said he did not allude to their in
dividual success, but to financial
policy ot their party. I asked
11m if he knew what the Prohibi
tion national platform said upon
the subject of finance aud after
some wriggling he admitted that
he did not. ' Then he said "I
object to all the isms in the Pro
hibition party. ' I asked him
what was one of its isnts. He
would not say, until I drove him
to the wall, and then he got mad
and said ''Woman Suffrage;" and
then I got mad and went on about

Democrat against Democrat for
some little two-for-fivc office, and
just as I started on to go to Lex
ington a man came up to him and
asked him to go down to manage
things at a certain voting place,
and he said he would do so.
There was the usual whisky
drinking of such days, aud when
1 came hack to Georgetown K
dark, just within a few steps Oifi
where that pillar of the church
and I had talked, there lay a
handsome young man dead, who
had just fallen with several bullet
holes in him. I came on to my
house, and utmost the last man I
saw 011 the street was drunk, and
at 3 o'clock next morning, Sunday,
my wile and I were wakened by
loud swearing of what seemed to
be drunken men on the streets.
The man who was killed had
uot long ago killed a man in a
saloon fight here, and had been
pardoned out of the penitentiary
by the Governor.
Do you think you can make me
believe that men such as I was
talking to have not sense enough
to see the connection between

flowed, and the blood that was
flowing from that voung man's

The courage shown by Mrs.
Faxton, Mayor of Kiowa, Kansas,
in enforciee the law there is thus
euloeized by the Cincinnati Post:
It will be becoming, and a just
tribute to her excellence for every
male mayor, in the United States
to take ofl his hat, and bow rev
erently before Mr?. Paxton the
female Mayor of Kiowa, Kansas
She is a cold water but not a milk
and water official; she is the quin
tessence of grit, and there isn't
even an embryonic truckle in her
composition. What she wills she
wills, aud "there's an end oa it'
The law was made to be enforced,
and she sent out a brigade of dep
uty marshals to destroy all intoxi
cating liquors, and nail up the 8a-loon-doors.
Nearly the whole
male town protested, and she
never winked. The male town
petitioned Council earnestly to
step into the breach and save
them, but she told the Council to
keep its mouth shut, and out of
the trouble, and it did. Then the
whole male town, with her own
dear duck of a husband at the
head of the petition, entreated her
to resign, and she only smiled.
They told, her, she was running
things into the ground and she re
plied, "that was just where the
law authorized her to run the
whisky, and she was running it."
She was informed by the weak
aud unprotected males that she
could never be elected mayor
again, and she said she had been
elected to enforce the law and it
was the only bid she had to offer
for votes. Then the thirsty Kio
wans fell back on muscular ar
gument, threatening to organize a
mob and t fleet a local revolution,
but she trumped this last card
with a remark, delivered iu dulcet
feminine tones, that it her mar
shals should not be equal to the
occasion she would ask the Gov
ernor of the State to call out the
malitia. The female Mayor of
Kiowa is mistress of the situation.
Yet there are some people who
uia'.ntaiu that women would be an
element of weakness 111
politics. Weakness? Why it is
just such a womanly kind of Un
enforcing Mayor that is wanted 111
most of the cities 111 this Union
She is not tin sort of a woman
Cincinnati has for a Mayor.
The Organizer Indianapolis.
The above account is written
by an editor ot one of the old rum
soaked parties and he has never
shown any leaning, so far as I
know, toward Prohibit ion What
he says thereiore can have no
partizan bias in it, and is only ex
torted from lil m h causa it is stern
truth and justice.
That woman, Mrs. Paxton, has
more sense than all the mayors
of Lexington put together, in the
last twenty years.
She could take charge of the
city of Lexington to-day by her
lone self, with five policemen such
as she would select, at her com
mand, aud she would manage the
whole town, without a single
councilman or alderman, better
than this aggregation of thirty
people, consisting with not more
than three or four exceptions, of
bummers and drunkards, and saloon-keepers,
and dead beats, and technically
known as a mayor and council,
with a big police force; and she
would for less that $1,000 a year
manage the city better than this
array of Falstatf recruit would do;
all put together.
The people of Kentucky have
been under these old political
hacks and shysters and dema
gogues, and a lot of editors that
have gone into the editing busi

to succeed as type setters and pi in

lot ot theological "Pecksniffs" and
"Chadbands." until they do not

of other people, tor drunkenness,
lawlessness, ignorance and lagging
iu the rear of everybody else;
when here is the tact admitted by

But the redeeming feature of

had on a dirty old slouch hat
made for a man, and such dang
Iiu dirty clothes that she would
not have been allowed to appear

those of a lady. She was educated
here at the eame college with my

the business houses
like a man. The people
seem to al low her to do so, because
they recollect what she once was,
and what her nice old father was,
and they pity her, and everybody
seems to have patience with her.
Wheu I had gotten my hat aud
started out tor a stroll, the first
man 1 recognized as anybody I
had ec-r seen before was riding
iu a nice turnout with a tine horse,
and he had 011 a tine overcoat ami
looked comfortable and warm.
1 have never seen him to speak
to him since he was a poor boy
nearly twenty-live years ago.
I saw him come into a store a
few da) sago. He looked like a
man who felt that he was finan

his mien, aud the clerks inquired
must respectfully what they could
do for him.
He is a retired saloon-keeper.

I am going to tell the people of
this town something tnai 11 seems

which I think I can verify.
Whisky has been the immediate
cause of juore deaths in this town

and pestilences of every kind, ac
cidents of all kinds (not including
those from drunkenness) burglars,
fire3, fljods, tornadoes, lightning
and earthquakes, all put together.
And yet when a Democratic
candidate was nominated here by
a crowd of men that the George
town Times, a Democratic paper,
described as a lot ot toughs who
jelled and fought because they
were drunk on mean whisky,
leading men from every church
in this town voted for him.
