lcejily interested his entire audience
with liis grand thoughts on prohibition,
t times bringing forth storms of ap
plause and laughter. Many thoughts
ank deep into the hearts atid minds of

never erase. No word of thanks can
fully express our appreciation for such
a lecture, and we can but wish liltn a
grand success in all his future efforts

Anpkkws, May 18. Last week we

little home, lies slowly dying, on, now
sad! Pving, yes dying! and nothing
that medical skill or loving hands can
do to prevent the cold hand of Death

love so well. As our eyes rested on

Happy Home" the work of her own

reloice at the coming of one so lovely.

IN A FEATHER RED.
Sam Whitehead Trie to Make
Kiteape From Jail.
For some time there has been in
carcerated in the jail a crazy colored
woman by the name of Mary Martin,
who has been allowed the privilege
of sleeping on a feather bed, which
was furnished to tier by her hus
band, Tom Martin. Of late, how
ever, she became so violent that she
would tear the ticking and strew
feathers all over the cell, and Turn
key Frazier ordered her husband to
take the bed out. Monday morning
t he negro man came to the jail to
comply with the turnkey's orders,
and was permitted to go to his wife's
Sam Whitehead, a white man.
who was bound over to the Circuit
Court on the charge of larceny,
occupied a cell near the crazy wo
man s, and while the negro man
was in the cell, Sam entered into a
scheme witli him to secrete himself
in the bed of feathers and be carried
from the jail, and thus effect an
escape. So, while unobserved by
the olncials, he snugly ensconsed
himself in the bed and the negro
hoisted him on ins shoulders and
passed safely through the door of
the jail into the hall.

sharp eye, and lie was f ir too wisi
for the wily Mam nnd bis dusky ac
complice. Noticing that the bed
was rather bulky, he ordered the
negro to deposit his burden on the
floor. He then gave the bed a hard
kick, and Sam, within, receiving
the lick on ins head, commenced
kicking too. Mr. Frazier kindly
made an opening in the ticking, and
Ham literally covered with feathers
emerged from his hiding place,
very nncli abashed and greatly
chagrined at the unexpected turn
things had taken. He was taken
back to his cage, and Tom, his part
ner in guilt, is now enjoying the
same tribulations from winch be
tried to ave his fellowman.
A Colored Missionary .Heeling.

night, there was held quite an enthu

to have the colored jsaptists to un
derstand that responsibilities were
increased upon them by tenfold,

drawn their aid iroin the mission
work. After the sermon, an inter

full of the mission spirit were listeiv
