gus?" inquired Al Chritz, the darkey
porter in the Harper hoL.se narucr
shop. "I just want to expose a couple
of crooks who euchred me out of $1.20
In a gentjemen's game," Al continued,
"and I want to roast them to a fraz
!zle. Since skinning me out of my
j hard-earned money they have been go
ing about threatening me and slandcr

' about how they were going to put me
' in jail for criminal libel if I publish -d
ithis, about putting me in the river,'
and all that. And here a few days ago
they tried to entice me down lo the

potatoes down there, but I was on to

bring them here and put them on the
floor of the shop. I'm a little too w iaa

under no raft.
"Now what 1 want to say about these
twe crooks is that fhey are a couple
of idle rich and I defy them. If they
don't pay me by next Saturday night ;
I am going to print this notice with
their name In it and tack it to every
telegraph pole in town:
"'Notice: If you don't pay me the
money you beat me out of in 48 hours ;
you are hereby warned to leave town.'
