"It happened this way : I had been
playing poker the night before in
great luck. Came out a cool $10,000
winner. Then a kind of remorse
came over me, and I made up my
mind it would be a good time to re
form. ' I resolved to quit poker and
be respectable, and I thought a good
way to begin would be by going to
church. So I fixed myself up and
walked into the biggest church In
the place. My intentions were real
ly good, but I hadn't slept any that
"The sermon was rather prosy and
I went to' sleep. After the sermon
the parson explained that the church
was a little in debt, and he thought
this svdlild be a good time to pay off.
I woke up just in time to hear him
say : 'We must raise $5,000.'
" Well, you see, I was 'half asleep,
thought I was still playing poker, an'
hearin' that put me on my nerve.
The deacon with the plate was right
beside me in the aisle. I pulled out
ray roll and yelled out : 'I'll tee that
$5,000 and go $5,000 better.' With
that I put my whole $10,000 on the

I was well enough awake to know
where I was the whole congregation
was singing and the minister was

go. '"Got a complimentary notice in

it has been sold on a guarantee, a

She'd Get the "Worst of It.
A boy came to the door of a lady's
house and asked if she did not wish
some berries, for he had been out all
day gathering them. "Yes," sa'd
tie lady, "I will take them." So
she took the basket and stepped into
the house, the boy remaining outside,
whistling to some canary birds hang
ing in the cages on the porch. "Why
don't you come in and see that I meas
ure your berries right?" she said,
how do you know but I may cheat
you?" "I am not afraid," said the
boy, "for you would get the worst of
it." "Get the worst of it!" said the
lady. "What do you mean by that ?"
"Why, ma'am," said the boy, "I
should only lose my berries, and you
would make yourself a thief. Don't
you think you would be getting the
worst of it?" The boy was right.
He who steals, or does anythiug
wrong or mean just to gain a few
pence or a few shillings, burdens him
self with a sin which is worse than
all the gain. Let this be borne in
mind ; the one who does a wrong
thing always gets the worst of it.

Special to Memphis Appial-Avalanche.
Dumas, Ark., Ju.ly22.-In answer
to a call for a mass-meeting of all
good citizens of lied Fork and Silver
Lake townships, this county, to pub
licly protest against certain scurrilous
attacks made upon the good namo of
our county and its residents, a repre
sentative body of men met last night
at Bed Fork in the open roadwav.
The meeting was called to order by
Lapt. G. E. Buck, who made a brief
address, outlining the necessity for
decided action, and saying the time
had come when good men must speak
in no uncertain way. He invited
nominations and on motion Dr. II.
N. Austin, of Pendleton, was elected
chairmau, and It. M. JBlakemore, of
The following gentlemen: Walker
W. Quilling, of Pendleton, J. T.
Sledge, of Red Fork, P. McFarland,
of Medford, were appointed a com
mittee on resolutions.
After some delay they brought in
the following report, which was
Whereas, John II. McDowell, for
merly a resident of this county, but
now president of the Tennessee state
alliance, has, in reply to charges
made against his political character
by the daily American, a newspaper
published in Nashville, Tenn., de
scended to unworthy, outrageous and
scandalous methods of vindication;
Whereas, the said McDowell has
seen fit to publish his scandalous
statements in several newspapers of
Tennessee, to-wit: the Banner, the
Toiler, and the Appeal-Avalanche,
Whereas, the said statements pub
lished by McDowell misrepresent and
malign our people, defame their
characters and distort the facts, all to
the commercial and material injury
of our county; and,
Whereas, we, whose names appear
signed to this document, are the own
ers or representatives of tho owners
of more than three -fourths of all the
land in Red Fork and Silver Lake
townships, being mindful of the is
sues made by J. II. McDowell, and
intimate by personal knowledge, or
evidence easily produced, with said
McDowell's record while he resided
in this county; now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That we are ready and
can produce evidence before any
court of law to prove that John II.
McDowell, while a resident of this
county, affiliated with the negroes,
both as a man and a republican, and
held offico through their votes as a
2. We cannot condemn too severe
ly the said McDowell's course during
his recent visit to our county, sum
moning the negroes to his house, and
by threats and other means obtain
ing their denial of statements pre
viously made in the presence of wit
nesses. 3. We have a contempt for the
method of McDowell's vindication.
It is a matter of public knowledge
that his two chief henchmen, Jack
son Green and Harrison Nelson,
can be bribed at any time. Invok
ing their assistance as a preliminary
move is evidence of guilt.
4. We hold it a monstrous outrage
that the said McDowell should have
suggested such obscene interviews as
appear in print by his authority.
They should down him in the es
teem of every good man.
5. We denounce as an infamous
als ehood the utterance of one Rev,
Robert H.Poynter concerning Dr. S,
J. Peeples, and we hereby record
ourselves as reposing the utmost con
fidence in the honorable character
and uprightness of said Peeples. To
each one of us he is personally known
and individually we can testify to his
0. We .do not claim for ourselves
spotless christian characters, but
we concede that no man has
greater honesty in dealing with
our fellow men, greater honor for
our obligations, or greator truth in
affairs of life.
7. We welcome to our county capi
tal and labor of whatever kind or
color, but of such as J. II. McDowell
we want not one.
8. We cordially invite any man or
committee of men to come to our
county and fairly judge between the
characters of John II. McDowell and
his witnesses, and ourselves, and by
that judgment we will abide.
9. That the secretary of this meet
ing be and he is hereby instructed to
have copies of these resolutions sent
to the Daily American, the Banner
and the Toiler, of Nashville, the Appeal-Avalanche,
of Memphis, and
the Arkansas City Journal, with the
request that said resolutions be
printed, and should such reauest be
refused he is instructed to pay for in
sertion as advertising matter.
