I was appointed to that position by tlie
Judge of the Court two and a half years
ago, to fill the vacancy caused by the
resignation of the former clerk. '
That I have given satlsfaction to those
most interested in the administration of

fact that 1 have the written endorsement
and the cordial support of more than
ninety per cent. of tlie lawyers, and of
even a larger proportion of the real es?

that I cannot offer higher evidence of
m.v competency and efiH-lency as clerk.

Asking your confidenoe and support,' I

worse until urged to try Dr. King's New
Diseovery. One bottle wholly cured her,

STORY OF A SLAVE' ?
To be bound hand and foot for years by
the chains of disease is the worst form of
slavery. George D. Williams, of Man?
chester, Mich., tells how such a slave was
made free: He says: "My wife has been
"so helplcss for five years that she could
not turn over in bed alone. After using
two bottles of Electric Bitters, she is
wonderfuliy improved and able to do her
own work." This supreme remedy fbr
female diseases qulckly cures nervousness
sleep*lessness, melancholy, headache, back?
ache, fainting and dizzy spells. This mtr

The Great Dispenser was as full of lifo
yesterday as a hoisting engine and as ir
resistable as a jack screw. He was greet
ed by dozens of people as if.he had taken
an ocean voyage, and given as''warn_ a
welcomo as if he had brought presents
back for al' his friends.
"When the cat's away, the mice will
Tho Great Dispenser was off the bench
only one day and yet the town was full
of lights. Men. boys and women who had
been good as long as the Great Dispenser
had his hand at tho throttle, though the
steam was popping off the safety valve,
went wild as soon as he laid off for a
day, jumped the track, and smashed
things right and left, before he got his
overalls-hung up ln the dressing-box.
BUT THE CAT CAME BACK.
John Walters and Henry Chittum were
charged on eeparate .warrants with as?
sault, striking and beating Lloyd Waldrop.
The Great Dispenser ls on the curves
of the Oregon Hill Terrors, and rested
the case early in the game as he knows
when he's got enough, but the boys had
a lawyer and he kept putting witnesses
on the stand until tlie lncrlminating facts
grew like a bail of snow, two 'inore
boys were swept into the vortex of the
law, and the evidence was so plain that
nothing stood between the boys and a
heavy fine except the pleading that im?
mediately takes ? place behind the bench
as soon as a line is imposed in front of
Lloyd Waldrop and a friend dressed in
their Sunday best, came out of Hollywood
after a walk, and Henry Chittum and
Elmo Starke and Dan Butler were stand?
ing on the corner and a strange thins
A STNGULAiR GAME.
Henry Chittum held his hand up In
front of Lloyd Waldrop's breast and in?
vited Elmo Starke to spit on It. Elmo
accepted the invitation and expectorated
with vigor in the direction of Henry's
hand, and in a timely manner, Henry
jerked his hand away and Lloyd caught
tlie spittle on his clothes.
He wiped lt away' without resentment
the lirst time, but when. the same perform
ance was enacted several times Lloyd
struck Elmo Starke and then the three
partners piled on Lloyd.
This encounter ended without serious
results, but the Great Dispenser, by way of
parenthesis, remarked that spitting on a
man was equivalent to a blow and mar
velled lhat Waldrop hadn*t let fly at the
first offense. -
Well, Waldrop went on home and he and
Elmo Starke later made friends, but while
going to church at nigiit Henry Chittum
picked a fuss with him at the corner of
Cherry and Albemarle Streets and bang
ed him in the eye, and here's where John
Walters got ln the game.
When Chittum hit Waldrop, Walters
hit him too from a point of the compas3
out of Waldrop's line of vlsion, and in
consoquence. Waldrop had a bump on his
forehead and a wail-pocket under h!s left
The Great Dispenser issued bench war
rants for Elmo Starke and Dan Butier
and fined Henry Chittum and Jno. Walters
He announced his Intention of breaking
up the disorder in the vicinity of this cor?
ner and instructed the police to report any
gathering of "the gang" there.
Bobert Lawrence came up to nnswer
a warrant that had been out for him.
since last December. He made nn unpro
voked assault on R. M. King Chri?tmas
Eve, and then moved to "Xewport News
.for a spell.
He filled up with fire water, as ls the
habit.of people of 'Richmond, with more
money and influence than Robert Law?
rence at that season of the year.
The liquor he drank was of the fighting
kind and when he met Mr. King he let
into him like a thousand of brick nnd
Mr. King said Lawrence hit him in the
face twenty-four times.
The Great Dispenser had no doubt of
the testimony. but was a little puzz'.ed to
know how Mr. King so clcverly ccunted
the licks under the cireumstances. Mrs.
King came to Mr. King's assistance and
Lawrence hlt her over the heatl with n
fcrlck and then he thought it was time
for dlsappearing nnd went to "Newport
* The Great Dispenser fined' him 520,
and as the man had no lawyer and no
members of the police force as near
neighbors. the Great Dispenser was not
wheedled to reduce the fine, and Law?
rence went to jail ln default.
