The Two Orphans was acain presented at.
ihe Theater last night by Kite. Claxton ancx
dramatic company, end betore a critical ara
dience. The play was well rendered and was
enjoyed. It has been so often played in car
city that the vast majority of our theater
goers care but little to witness it over usraio,
no matter how well it may bo put cn the
stage. The great secret of stage scscess is
novelty so far as the publio is concerted, and
especially the Memphis public, when the pa
trons of the tbeater are lnrgtly drawn from
one cla's of citizens. The Two Orphan is
no doubt one of the mo&t attractive dramas
that has been on the stage for many years,
but it has almost run its course and will toon
be shelved. Miss Claxtoa stands unexcelled
as "Jjoutse, " tne Diina orpuan gin, over
whoso troubles, sorrows and misfortunes eo
many tears bave been shed by sympathetic
people. The drama will be repeated to-night
and again for the matinee performance on
Saturday. To-morrow evening A Doubl
Marriage, a drama'izition of one of Charles
Reade1 attractive novels.

Editobs Appeal Farmers, do you want
to learn something that wiil be worth money
to you? Yes, ot course yoa do. Well, here
it is: Good roads between your homes and
your uiarkpt place. How do y.-u make that
appear? Easy enough. A good road would
enable you to carry as much produce to mar
ket at one load as you now carry at tour
loads. You could make the trip in one-half
the time; ycu would not irjure your teams;
you would not smash up your wagons, cre
ating bills for repairs and more lopt time;
you could obtain more for your produce by
putting it on the maiket earlier; you could
well afford to haul te.tiliz rs from the city to
enrich your impoverished lands, thereby
doubling their value to you; and if you did
not have sense enough to fertilize thorn, some
one else, seeing tbe opportunities and advan
tages, would give you double their present
value, and enable you to withdraw from the
neighborhood and "go west," which we
weuld be glad to have yoa do. On a good
road, you oou'd drive to tbe city oa Sundays
and attend church perhaps the attendance
would miiii-a'e your everlasting grumbling
at the weather; on fine nights (having plenty
of cah) you could eajiy an entertainment at
the Theater; you could have more opportuni
ties of intercourse with people ot culture,
which is the weightiest reason of all; you
could send your children to tbe city
schools to be educated; you could pay your
tuxes wi.hout feeling the outlay; you could
look the constable in the faca f ithsut frar ot
'I have a littio claim against you;" you
would have more elf-repcct traveling oa
a good road than creeping at a snail's gailop
along the torturous windings of your pie-ent
protracted mud-ho'e, besmattered with mire,

THE PUZZE STILL THE RAGE
Tbe Little Blocks or the Thirteen, Four

A Country Correspondent of tbe Appeal
Makes a Most Interesting: Addition
to the Game by a Revival or the
Magic "Square or the
The "Fifteen Puzzle" has racked, if not
wrecked, many an old mind as well as many
a young one. It has engaged alike the at
tention of the school children and the gray
headed sires and dames, and it permeates
Memphis like an epidemic. The addition of
a sixteenth number or block to the box gives
the "Thirty-four Puzzle," or magic square.
The aim is to so arrange the numbers that
they will aggregate thirty-four, horizontally,
perpendicularly and diagoually. The seta of
lour forming the corners and the center and
the f jur corner numbers also foot up thirty
tour. Here is the solution:
1 15 14 4
12 6 7 9
8 10 11 5
13 3 2 16
A gentleman residing at Harrison, Missis
sippi, sends ns another solution that counts
up 34 in 24 different ways, as follows:
7 1 10 16
12 14 5 3
13 11 4 6
2 8 15 9-
The gentleman adds triumphantly that ha
little daughter had made out the "13-14-15"
pu Ezle, so both are solved and no one crasy.
'The fifteen puzzle presents many problems,
t'ae "13-15-14" being the knottiest of all;
'out here is the solution : Put the blocks in
the box in regular order, then put the last
three blocks in tne puzzle order, li io 14,

A SHOCKING CRIME.
John Phillips, a Shoemaker, Arrested
and Lodged In Jail Charged wltb
Baplnr and Destroying the
Health of a Little Nine-year-old
Statement of the Wretch whose Lecher,
ous Practices have Brought him
Trouble that May Cost him
his LITe Testimony or
Yesterday a warrant was sworn out by
Chief-of-Police Athy before Esquire Quigley
charging John Phillips with committing a
rape upon the person of a white child named
Lee Turner. The girl is small in size, child
ish in manner, and rather good-looking, hav
ing blond curls banging down to her neck.
She is about eight years of age, and is the
daughter of a Mrs. Turner who resides at 317
Main street and who works tor Thomas Ran
dolph, tailor, as a clothing-maker. The de
fendant, Phillips, is a large, burly-looking
man, sandy mustache, and possesses a club
foot. He is a shoemaker by trade, and works
at the shop of John Linkhauer, 283 Second
street The discovery that the child was
badly diseased having been made by the
mother within a few days caused an investi
gation and examination of the person of the
child, and the subsequent arrest of Phillips.
Two young colored girls, named respectively
Mary Johns and Clara- Bell, the former
fourteen and the latter eleven years of age,
detailed the particulars of the outrage to the
chief of police as follows: They, the two col
ored girls, had formerly visited the room of
John Phillips for immoral purposes, and they
induced the white child, Lee Turner, to visit
his room about two weeks ago. While there
Phillips had criminal intercourse with all
three before they left. This was the only
time that Lee Turner viBi ted his room. The
child was examined by Dr. Marable yester
day morning, and he found her badly dis
eased. She identified John Phillips as tbe
man who abused ber at his room on the oc
casion referred to. Phillips, when arrested,
appeared much frightened, unnerved and
agitated. In answer to the charge, he said
that he was drunk at the time; that he had
connection with tbe two little colored girls.
but not with the white child, Lee lurner.
THE PRISONKB'S TALK.
At another time he gave the following
statement to the reporter of the Ledger:
'My name is John Phillips. ' I am a shoe
maker by trade. Was born in Ireland, and
have lived in Memphis about five years. I
am at present working for John Linkhauer,
and have a room at 208 Second street, up
stairs. About three weeks ago I met a little
white girl in company with two little negio
girls, on Main street, near Union, and one
of them asked me what I wanted. I asked
them what they wanted, and the largest one
(meaning Mary Johns) asked me if I did not
want them up in my room, remarking, we
all three knows all about it.' 1 was disgus
ted, and told them to leave. I did not see
them again tor several days.' when 1 met
them again on Second atreet, when the oldest
one asked me again if I did not want her up
in my room. I then told her she migtt
come, but the little ones could not. She fol
lowed me to my room, but after 1 had closed
the door begged me to let them all in, which
did. but 1 was so disgusted when 1 saw
what little things they were, that I gave
them twenty cents and told them to go,which
they did; and so help me God I never had
any connection with any of them."
THE COLORED GIRL '8 STATEMENT.
Mary Johns, colored, aged fourteen years.
gave the following statement of the crime:
We never met the man over there (point
ing to Phillips) but once, and that was on
Mam street, near tbe corner of Gayoso. late
one evening about three weeks ago. It was
raining at the time, and we were all standing
under an awning. He asked ns to come up
to his room, and I said I did not want to go.
but the little colored girl, uiara Bell, said
yes, let's go up and make some money.' We
all followed him there, and after we got in
his room the outrage was committed upon
Lee Turner, the little white girl, and Clara
Bell. He did not say anything more to me
about it, but we all went out of the room and
down the stairs.- On the way home Lee said
her side hurt her so Bhe could hardly walk."
Ihe girl gave tbe details ot the horrible
crime in filthy language, and seemed much
amused while so reciting them. Phillips aad
the two colored girls, Mary Johns and Clara
Bell, were detained in custody to await the
examination, which took place at three
o'clock yesterday afternoon, before Esquire
At the examination tbe State was repre
sented by Assistant Attorney-General Cas-
sells, and the defendant by Judge Logwood..
The witnesses testified as follows:
My name is Lee Turner: am eight, veara
old; I know the man over there, bo. I don't
know his name; I saw him the day I was up
in his house; it was more than a 'week ago: I
. 1 Til. A. 1 J - 1 . .
went up witu two coioreu giris, aad saw the
man; he did something to me,, and hurt me.
Here the child would not answer anv other
questions touching the details of the vile out
rage that had Deen commuted unon her. She
commenced crying and refused to answer
questions. In response to questions pro
pounded by Judge Logwood she said: "I
don't know what an oath is; if I tell a lie I
will go to the bad man when 1 die.
MBS. ELIZABETH: TURNER,
the mother of the child, appeared in court at
this juncture and the examination was re
sumed on behalf ot tbe state. Tbe child
said that she and the two colored Grids met
the man on Main street; he told them to go-
up to nis nouse ana ne tonowed them. They
stayed there half an hour, and the man gave
her and the smaller colored girl five cents
each, and Mary, the larger colored girl,, ten
cents. The man put sr quilt on the floor and
the three girls laid upon it after taking off
their clothing, the man fhulips having told
them to do so, and then he laid with, them
and looked at them.
On cross-examination by Judge Log wood, she
said: Mary got us to go up to the house; she
said the man was going to give them a dol
lar; the man was not drank; she never had
anything to do with a man befcre; bad never
carried a dollar to her mother; was never in
any othtr man's room before; we were all
covered up on a pallet on the floor; the man
bur; me with his hand.
MART JONES, COLORED,
testified that she was fourteen years I age;
had known Phillips a long times be told
them to go to his room, and he would give
them bait a dollar; when at tbe room, he
made all three of them take off their clothing
and lay down on the floor; he violated the
rxraons of the little white girl and the little
colcred girl, but had nothing to do with wit
ness. On cross examination by Judge Logwood
she said she had been at his room before with
two colored girls; when she and the littla
white girl went there he spread a quilt oa
the floor, upon which they all laid down and
were covered with another quilt; he told the
whit9 girl that if he saw her again he would
call a policeman and have her arrested: he
violated her first, then the little colored girl,
CLARA SELL, COLORED,.
testified that she was twelve years of age;
lived on Vance street; the man got them to
go to his room: he violated the persons ot all
of them; the white girl, "Lee," begged him to
stop, that he hurt her; he gave one of them
ten cents and the others five cents each
On cross examination by Judge Logwood
she said the man made them take off their
dresses; his room was on Second street, be
tween Madison and Monroe streets; when in
the room he
DR. JOHN T. MARABLE.
Dr. Marable, on being sworn, said that he
had examined the white child Lee Turner;
that she was diseased and slightly bruised.
It was a disease peculiar to sexual inter
course; had examined the man John Phillips;
he was not diseased at the present time.
MRS. ELIZABETH TURNER,
on being sworn, said she was the mother of
the child Lee Turner: Lee was eight years of
age; two weeks ago last Saturday the child
complained of soreness, and she had her exam
ined by a physician.
Dr. Marabletnd the colored girls were re
examined on certain points which are un
necessary to detail.
Defendant Cammttted Wlthoat Ball.
Short arguments were made by Attorney
General Cassells for the State and by Judge
Logwood for the defendant. Esquire Quig
ley committed the prisoner, Phillips, to jail
without bail, on the charge of committing a
rape upon a child, an offense not bailable
under the laws of the State. The colored
girls were also sent to jail, to be detained as
witnesses to the crime. The facts as detailed
by the two colored girls were of a most hor
rible and vulgar character, and while they
were being detailed the burly human brute,
Phillips, -hung his head in shame and trem
bled with excitement and fear.
laaac Watta was a Little SXan.
He said jocosely to six of bis tall quizzing;
friends who asked how he felt among so many
men, "that he was a sixpence among six pen
nies, worth them all." Sozodont is just so;
there may be many preparations for the
teeth, bat it is worth them all.
