Tit For Tat.
Dallas, Tex., Aug. 9. The law and
order movement recently inaugurated
in this city by preachers against the
violators of the Sunday liquor laws
has developed into a unique contest.
The Law and Order Society has a
number of spies appointed to detect
all violators of the law. The saloon
men as a countei-thrust have placed
detectives at work on the private lives
of the ministers, both in the past and
at present. The air is full of rumors
concerning discoveries made as to the
unholy doings of the clergy, and a
scandalous sensation is liable to burst
upon the city at any moment.
A Unman Beast.
Tyler, Aug. 10 Last night 'the

beating his wife whenever it suited
his fancy. Last night he kicked her
out of her house, which is in the
northwestern part of town, and she
started away, it is supposed, to notify
the mayor. Pricer overtook her and,
knocking her down, kicked and stamp
ed her until there is no hope for her
recovery. The woman was. enciente,
and if she dies the beast will be guilty
of double murder. Some negroes
found the child dead on the ground
where the woman received her in
juries. There was great excitement
among the colored people last night
and lynching was freely talked of.
