Ohio, in the interest of the Republican
party 1 A bigger traud than he never de
veloped in human shape.
FnoM the following paragraph which i
sent from Du Quoin as special correspon
dence to tho St. Louis Republican, it would
seem that the Illinois Central is having
some difficulty in obtaining miners. The
difficulty is not in the price offered, but the
size of the screen used. The screen present
ing onc-and-a-half-inch openings, it is al
leged that nearly one-half the marketable
coal is lost to the miner. Even to the un
initiated this allegation presents an absurdi
ty. The coal dealer who would come upon
the market with coal, nearly one-half of
which would pass through inch-and-a-half
meshes or openings lumps smaller than
an average sized hen's egg would find
himself essentially lacking in the essential
particular of purchasers, unless, indeed, he
accommodated liis prices to the grade of
his coal. Hut hero is the paragraph :
"Considerable interest and some excite
ment are being manifested here over the
arrivals of colored men to fill tlio places of
the miners at the Illinois Central Iron and
Coal company's mines. Tho difficulty giv
ing rise to this invoice of colored help is
partly explained by the fact that while the
miners are paid two cents per bushel,- it is
only for that coal which has passed over an
y inch screen, which permits, it is said,
nearly one-half of marketable coal to be
lost to the miner. Several of tho new ar
rivals have returned, and it is now probable
that nearly all of them will do likewise, as
money is being readily furnished them to
pay their passages. Peace and quietude
reign as yet, anA tho likelihood is that
good counsels will continue to prevail."
Perfect equality for the blacks in the
Christian churches of tho middle and New
England States, is a beautiful theory, tho
practice of which is very generally urged
M an essential element of Christian fellow
ship and charity. In Newburg, N. Y., is a
M. . church with which several colored
people have worshipped tor many years, al
ways filling the rear scats, and kneeling at
the communion table after ull the whites
had partaken. Quito recently, however,
the colored members arrived at the conclu
sion that, oi such distinctions could not be
kept up in Heaven, there was no good rea
son, for enforcing them on earth. They ac
cordingly resolved to mingle more freely
with tho whites,, and to at once demand the
right to sit in tho same pews, and to kneel
with them at communion. They m'ht not
excrciso tho right, tlicy said; but they
wanted it recognized. A few days ngo tint
question came up for decision before
the church. A half dozen persons
voted affirmatively the balance re-
inftloecir. silent, 'find i thofriglit Of
tlio blacks tp mlnlo at plensiirg witlj their
wliito skinned ulsters and brothers was ro
cognized' Word of the decision getting
abrowl, onl. many of the moro suspicious
bittCKg uouunng tno sincerity ui ' "r
determined to put it to a test, and on tho
first opportunity thereafter as many as a
httlfdozcn black brethren and sisters took
seats further forward. From some pews
they were fenccJ out, and in thoso into
which they wero rocoived they were giveu
an abundance of room. Tlio "cordial
fellowship" was conspicuously absent, and
beforo tlio close of the day a goodly por
tion of tho congregation had announced a
purpose to sever their connection with tho
church. It is now held as one of the in
evitables that the church will soon need an
epitaph that will road somewhat this way:
"Went up on the coior line."
T1IERE IS DANGER IN IT.
We have, on several occasions, spoken of
the dangers, the besetmcnts ifhd corrputing
influences that surround boys who are per
mitted to run abroad upon the streets, dur-
he late hours of the night. Wo can
not conceive that tho danger to girls is
less alarming. In the following paragraph
this danger is so forcibly and truly pre
sented, that wo give it conspicuous place, in
the hope and belief that it will command a
general reading from those among us whom
it most vitally concerns :
An alarming custom, says the unknown
writer, which seems to be growing fcmong
our girls, is the practice of walking the
streets during the evening. We believe in
walking, and think our people, require
plenty of fresh air and exercise; but surely
an hour's brisk walk at sunset will affect
this object. Mode st girls should not be
seen on the street, unless necessity compels
it, after dark. We hope and behove tliut
this alarming custom in the majority i f
cases works no serious result, and yet it re
quires a great deal of faith in hu;;ian na
ture to believe even this, i.nt r.o
great degree of foresight to predict the
mischief that in very many cases must come
cf it. Girls are too often inclined to get up
'little flirtations" with the gentlemen they
meet. Sometimes it is no more than an in
terchange of glances, a cough, a wave of the
handkerchief; but these little departures
from niiiideiily modesty lead to greater aud
more dangerous ventures; and we shudder
to think of the abyss on which they unw it
tingly stand. What kind of parents can
they be who let their daughters thus expose
themselves to the greatest of all danger.
Parents are bound to watch over their chil
dren. Perhaps the mother ihinks
that girls will be ' girls, and that she
iiad her flirtations in her day and
no harm came of it, and her girls will have
time enough to sober down "when they arc
married -and off her hands. So they wfll,
poor things; but what chance of a happy
married life has a girl brought up or
allowed to grov up in this way, not only
with no domestic training, but with no
sense of womanly dignity and responsi
bility? Once in a while there comes a
dreadful reckoning to one of these silly
mothers, the discovery of an awful shame
that a perpetual shadow on the household.
This daughter, perhaps, is turned adrift
upon the world, to suffer alone the inevita
ble penalty of tho fault that was more her
parents' than her own. Wo have not ex
aggerated the magnitude of this evil; we
arc sure that we do not exaggerate its dan
ger. Mothers, take care of your daughters.
Cotrecpomk'iictf Cnrbon ( Wyoming Journal.
1 was standing in front ot the hotel when
my attention was attracted bv a tlilani-
dated, antiquated looking specimen of a
saloon bummer, who was passing alflng the
street ringing a bell. At intervals he would
cense ringing and shout:
"Religious racket right away at the big
tent! Roll up, tumble up, or slide up on
yer years, turwell have a bang-up dish o
Gospel talk lrom Faro Bill: nn'd-o-o-o-n'-t
you torgit it!'
Turning to a dapper little gambler who
stood near, 1 asked :
"Who is this Faro Bill?"
"Who is he? Well, now, if that ain't the
1k)ss play fur high. You kin break me
right here if I thought there was a broko in
tho mines that didn't know Bill. Ho used
to be one 'o tho boys, but got capped into n
religious gamo by a slick tongued Gospel
sharp about two months ago. He's chopped
on all his old rackets, an' don't stand in
with nothin' now that don't show up n Hi-
bio or prayer book in the lay-out. Billy
useu to do mo dors gamuieroi the camp,
and warn't afcurd to sit in a irame with the
llycst sport that ever slung a card; but he's
cloan gone on tho pious lay now, and seems
10 nave lost all the irooil there ever was In
him. Tho boss mouthpiece of the heavenly
mm mis gone oown to uenvcr, an' Hill is a
going to stand in un' sling Gospel to the
uoys as wen as no can."
This explanation, giveu m tho most earn
est tones, started mo instanter for tho bitr
tout. ii was useu at night lor a variety
theatre, where aitistsf?) tit questionable
character pcriormwl acts of still more ques
tionable decency and was rented for reliii
ous service every Sunday morninir. I found
tho tent filled to its utmost tiipneity.
Many had, no doubt, come through curios
ity to see how Bill would deport himself in
this, initial sermon. Upon tho uta-re wit a
n burly, red-faced man. with arms fuliUt
in a careless manner, who looked over the
largo audience with an air of the most de
cided independence. This was Faro Bill,
the speaker of the occasion. When ho

ment, evidently collecting hi thoughts,
and began:''' - j , , ,
Feller citizens: The preacher hem ab
sent it falls on mo to take bis hand and play
it fur all it's worth. You nil know that
I'm Just a learnin' tho gamo, an' of course,
I may bo expected to mako wild breaks,
but! don't believe there's a rooster in the
camp mean enough 10 uiko advantage o
my iguorancc an' cold deck me right on the
first deal. I'm sincere in this new depar
ture, an' I balievo that I've struck a gamo
tlat I can piny clear through without
copperin' a bet, fur when a man tackles a
lay out like this ho plays every card to
win, an' if ho goes through tho deal as ho
orter do, when he luys down to die, an' the
hist case is ready to slide from tho box, he
can cull tho turn every time.
"I was readin' in the Bible to-day that
yarn about tlio Prodigal Son, an' I want to
tell yer tho story. The book don't give no
dates, but it happened long, long ngt This
Prodigal Son had nu old man that put up
the coin every time tho kid struck him for
a stake, an' never kicked at tho size of the
pile either. I reckon the old man was
purty well fixed, an' when he died he in
tended to give all his wealth to the, kid an'
his brother. Prod give the old man a little
gamo o' talk one day, an' induced him to
whack in advance o' tho death racket.
He'd no sooner got his divy in his fist than
ho shook tho old man an' struck out to take
in some o' the other camps. He had a way
tip time for a while an' slung his cash to
tho front like he owned the best payiu'
lead en airth; but hard luck hit him a lick
at last an' left him flat. The book don't
state what he went Ijroke on, but I reckon
ho got steered up agin eomo brace game.
But, anyhow, hefjot left without a chip, or
a four-bit piece to go ah' ante on. An old
granger then tuk him homo an' set him to
hcrdiu hogs, an' here fie got so hard up an
hungry that he piped off the swine while
they were feedin', an' he stood in with 'em
on a husk lunch. He soon weakened on
such nl&in provender an' savs to himself.
says he : 'Eveu the old man's hired hands
are livin' on square grub while I'm worryin'
along here on corn husks straight. I'll
jist take a grand tumble to myself an" chop
un this racket at once. I'll skip back to the
governor and try to fix things up. r.ad call
lor a new ileal,' so off he started.
"The old man seed the kid a comin" r.u'
what do ye re;'on he done?" Did he pu!l
his gun an' lay for him, inttndip' to wij ;
him a soon as he got iuto range? Did h-.
cJll the dogs to chase him i'ff th r.-.uc i. '.
Did he ribtle around i't a club an' Live
him a stand offct the front g. te; Eh? Not
to tr.y alarming extent he didn't. No, sir

At iiie conclusion of the narrative tb;
speuker paus.d. evidently frumir.g 5a hi
mind a proper application of the story.
Before he could resume a tail. Wear-eyed
gambler, with a ilerce mustache, arose and
"Taint me wouid try Ur weak up a
meetin', or do anythin' disreiigious. No.
sir, I'm not that rt of a citizen. But in
all public hoo does it is a parliamentary
rule fur cnyWly as wants to ax questions
to rise up an' the them off. I don't want
t.er foul away time a questionin' the w orig
in's of religion; oil, no. As long as it is
kept in pn 'per, bounds, an' does not inter
fere with the boys in their
'rames, I don't see as it" can do harm. I
just want to ax the honorable speaker if lie
has not give hunse! dead away: Does it
stand to reason that a broke would fee l
upon corn an' husks, when there was hath
factories in the camp'? Would c nybody Iwv
refused him the price of a squaie meal f
he hed stritcK t.'ieni fur it: Would eny of
the dealers who beat him out of his coin
see him starve? As I remarked afore.!
don't want ter make eny tiisrespectal 'e
breaks, but I must say that I have got i:
put up that the speaker kis been a try in'
ter feed us on cussed thirr taffy, an' no one
but a silly would take it in."
Bill glared upon the speaker and fairly
"Do you moan to say that I am a lhir:"
'Wal. you can take it just as you chon-.
Some folks would swaller it in that shepe."
Bill pulled his revolver, and in an instant
the bright barrels of numerous weapons
flashed in the air as the friends of each
party prepared for active duty. The I re
vet preacher was the first to lire, and th
rash doubter of spiritual truth fell dead en
the ground. Shut followed shot in quiek
succession and when quiet was again re
stored a score or more of dead and wounded
men were carried from the tent. Having
secured attention Bill said:
"Further proceedings is adjourned for
the day. You will receive the doxology."
The audience arose.
" May grace, mercy nu' peace be with
you, now and forever. Amen; an' I want it
distinctly Understood that I am going ter
maintain a proper respect for the Gospel it'
I have ter croak every dirty son-of-a-gun in
the mines. Meetin' is out.''
The crowd filed from the tent as cooly as
if nothing extraordinary had ncoured, and
as I gained the udewolk I heard a man re
"Bill has got the sand to make a bang
up preacher, and I would not wonder if lie
made a big mark in the world yet."
