wether was also peculiarly happy in hor
reforenco to woman' plaro In the church
when it was yet a simple Institution, for
mulated upon tho plain plan of tho gospel
and almost within tho sound of tho volco
of tho Christ, Equality of sex was then
a diHtlnguiHhing sign and ovidonco of
ChriHliumty, as disllnguUihlug as tho high
moral fueling which lifted tho Chruttian
abovo tho evil and tho grossnoss by which
ho was surrounded. As to tho fable about
F.vo, no one of any broadth of scholarship
or thought now thinks ot banking upon it,
unless, liko Mr. Allen, he lias a purposo
that may best bo subserved by its use. In
much the Bruno spirit as Mrs. Moriwuthor
revives in her reference to tho historic
fart of tho Council of Macon, whoro
ninety-five bishops, alter gravo discussion,
settled tho status of woman as inferior and
secondary to that of nmn. It was this label
ling and libelling of tho sex that induced
the frenzies that ended In tho death
by firo and torture of 0,000,000 of thorn un
der charge of witchcraft and of consorting
with tho devil. Mr. Grunt Alien is evi
dently a uiedevillian, so far as women
aro concerned, and ia possessed of an In
curable prejudico to their advancomuut.

that there are such men M ho still in exis

A PRACTICAL EVA KOEL1ST.
Tux presonce in tho city of a notod
evangelist, Dr. Withorspoon, chaplain of
the Upper Dothol Cbapol, New Orleans, ia
an ovont to be chronicled, lie Is one ol
the noteworthy ecclesiastic of our time,
and has boon singularly successful in tho
noble mission which ho fouudod and has
built up to a condition ot solidity, sus
tained by a grateful public and uphold by
the united voice and effort ot the Chris
tians ot evory naruo in the great city of
Louisiana. Tho Rev. Dr. W. A. finlvoly,
roctor of Trinty Church, New Orloans, at
tho rccont anniversary mooting ot thia
Bothol, said that "among all tho groat
occlosiastics ot the country Corrlgurf,
Doano, Doocher, Hall, Talmago ho
placed tho namo ol tho lato Fathor
Taylor, of Iloston, and tho man who yet
livoa to labor with us our own Dr. With
orspoon. rio man has a larger congrega
tion than ho. No man' personal influence
so extond more into evory portion of tho
world than doe that of the organiser ot tho
Seamen's Dothol, of Now Orleans, To tho
bethel work can best be wished 'God'
secd to you.' To hi good and vcnorablo
brothor ho assured him ho had sympathy
and prayers. Though he might never write
his name on the flaunting flag of history,
ho would Inscribe it on tho hoarts ot mon,
and would engrave It whore la tho
book ot rosruod souls, it would live for
ever." This il high praise, but it 1 in
dorsed by tho press and tho active Chris
tian workers ot Now Orleans, In aplto ot
the modest disclaimer entered by Dr.
Witluirspoon after Dr. Snivcly bad closed
his remarks. It is high, but deserved
prai.su of ono who has become venerable
in tho service ot tho church but is still
strong to ciiiitinuo at it. Dr. ither
spoon comes.of a strong race, and as intuiy
of our reader will bo able next Sunday to
realise for themselves, is a strong, persua
sive and convincing preacher, lie has
promised to preach at th Second l'reshyto
rian Church iu tho morningand tho First in
thueveuing, and on both occasions will de
vote himself to the work that has tho hearty
approval of tho police authorities of New
Orleans bocauso It has had a decided effect
to produce order and suppress crime in a
part of the great city that formerly was a
fruitful field of cri mo and criminal.
An editorial from Tir.Vir York Sun on
the resolutions passed by tho Arkansas
I'ress Association is printed in another
column. In it the editor takes two very
seii'iblo position as to w hat ia termed
ermnnl journalism. In ono ot them ho
insist that tho true editor must be ready
to give and receive blow. This Is true,
but an editor I no more bound to yield
himself a prey to scurrility and abuse
and blackguardism merely bocauso a
blackguard choose lo Indulge himself
ban a merchant or professional
man. This Is what the Arkansas editors
condemn ami propose to punish by drop
ping tho blackguard editor from their
rxebnago lists. Wo agree with Tlx 5. in,
that "thero Is no peculiar privilege bo-
longing to an editor which entitles him to
exemption from attack. Ho should not
bo allowed to remain as an anonymous
character. His newspaper give him a
pow er (or w hone excrcito ho should Ikj bold
personally rroiiaiblu. Men In public
life, I'teaidenls, Senators, Congressmen,
Cabinet oltlcers, Governor and I-rgislntors
are all freely criticised, and why should
editors escaisi? They claim tho liWty of
finding fault with other people, whom
they designate by name, and they should
slaud rca ly to endure critictsm on their
own side. Tho s-rsonallty behind tho
newspaper should be brought U viow, and
if tho editor deserves punishment lie
should get it There I no great newspa
ht In thia country ot which aomo indi
vidual doe uot appear a tho representa
tive," Tna .Iwiiafu (ViruiiiVe again repeats the
statement lu its ciger defense of protection,
thai "tho IVniocrat who dm'l not believe
that the President' mtssii;i and tho Mill
bill, a at first introduced, defeated tho
party In the l ist election I not a ife
guide. I'nleis ho learns w isdotu from our
laat political defeat ho will not loam it
though one arose from tho dead
to Instruct liliu." Nothing, a Tna
Ai-ital has recntcdly shown, could
be farther from tho facts than
thl. Mr. Cleveland, who received 10,
0(H) majority of Ihs popular veto, lost the
electoral voto of Now York and Indiana
by tho game of tho block of five In tho
latner State and by being sold out In tlm
former where Hill w is re-cleclod Governor
by 10.I7I maority, Harrison carrying the
Slate hyonly WwhJ majority. Ho far ss tlm
tsrlir question I concerned Mr. Cleveland
had tho support of th people, m i indi
cated by hi Hiputr majority. Ho wa
old out by tho local politician ot Iudisoa
and Now York.
Tna AoViiV H' jitter indorse tho uggott

says that if "DoSoto County doe not (end

it will be because ota failure of our citizen!
to manifest tho In tores t necessary to con

J. Aixkh Tuubmak, Ja., ia reported to

least sympathy with protection cau bo
elected Uovornor ot Ohio. Well, ho ought
to know what ho la bilking about. The
issuo betweon tho tari 11 reformers and tho
free traders is everywhere being sharply
drawn, and nowliero more sharply than in

HOW A GENTLEMAN WAS CAUGHT
IN UNPROFITABLE TBADB.
A Patent Ironing Board Ia the Cauao-a
It Is Sold for a Large Sum and tbe
Seller Arrested and Made to Dl
gorge. "A suckor is born every second," said a
well known New York confidence man
when asked how he found eo many vic
tims. It teems that tho crop is not falling any
shorter as the world grows older.
A caso came up yesterday before J ustice
M. T. Garvin which shows the exceeding
gullibility ol men considered shrewd and
Tho caso was this: Mr. Frotwell and
Jiis partner Mr. George camo to Memphis
from Texas. They bad a patent ironing
board and were anxious to sell county,
State or national rights. Thoy had testi
monials showing tho fabulous sums made
by agent in tho Lone Star State. The
Texas gentlemen took up thoir position on
Court Square and waited for thoir prey.
They did not wait long.
Mr. R. W. Buford, who livos a few miles
from Memphis, aud who was a damaging
witness against W. O. Hodrlck In his late
trial, came along and looked upon tho In
vention and pronounced it good. Some of
Mr. Frelwell'a strikers camo up, and, in
true Mulberry Sellers stylo, praised the
scheme and audibly yearned for money
enough to purchase a small interest in the
thing. Mr. Buford listenod. Tbe Messrs.
Sellers calculated how many '"'-n-kfj,
cuuiu uo mauo out oi ii in a couple
of years. Mr. Buford became Inter
ested. The Messrs. Sellers continuod to
argue that while the patent wo appar
ently simple, it was just tho tort of thing
to sell liko wildfire. Tho man who id
vented tbe fifteen puzzle it a millionaire.
The man who invontod pigs in the clover it
becoming a millionaire. Tho man who
invented toothpicka is a millionaire. The
man who invented tho toy ball, with rub
ber tiring attachment, is twico a million-
aire. Tho man who inveutod clothespins
is throe times a millionaire, and tho pat
entee and owner o( this wonderful ironing
bonrd, which challenged tho world, and was
recommended by several gentlemen from '
Texus, would bo a Juv Gould before ho
would have time to wciir out half his old
clothes. To all of this Mr. Buford in
clined a listening and attentlvo ear. Vis
ions oi wealth rose up before him. Ho
imagined himself tho owner of tine old
ensiles in Spain, deer parks in Scotland,
brown stone fronts in New York and more
money than Carter had oats. He made
inquino as to tho poatubililics oi securing
an interest in tho bonanza nnd found that
such a deul was possible.
He was overjoyed.
A trade was soou oflectod w hereby Mr.
Buford was mado half owuer in the patent
for a territory covering tho whole United
States, including the Territories ami
Alaska, for snd in consideration ol the sum
of SI2.0O0, the receipt of which was duly
nckuowludged. Mr. Buford did not have
Uie ready money but gave instead deeds to
divers and sumfry vsluublu hunts iu North
Mississippi. Tho deeds were promptly
mailed for record.
When Mr. Buford reconsidered hi
bargain ho begun lo realizo that bo had
been what is known hi uncommercial
circles as "thuillaiuuied." lie wanted 10
trade back, but Mr. Fretwell would not
consent He then swore out a warrant
agniust Mr. Fretwell charging that geullu. .
man with bavin obtained money under
false pretense. lawyers were employed
on. both side and. sooner than go to jail
the Texas gentleman concluded to com

Buford excepting a tract ot 100 arree in

Mr. Fretwell paid the Court costs aud ex
plained to the Court: "1 do this merely
