There was a young man in this city
or some other, we will not locate it too def
initely who at the beginning ot his mar
ried life, not so very long ago, entered into
a scheme of practical reform. He was not
a bad man; his habits were generally cor
rect; he was a bright light in Sunday
school, and occasionally wundcJed ground
and lost himself in one or tho other of the
churches, and other strange places, but he
had one failing. He doted on a quiet
game of "draw" and worshipped at the
shrino of the "jack pot." He married a
pretty girl and thought bo could master the
gambling propensity by teaching his young
and blushing bride the fashionable game
and she entered into it with all her heart
and soul. Tho stakes were coffee grains
plain, innocent ami healthful articles of af
ternoon refreshment. But alas, tho gam
bling spirit grow up in hor and one fatal
game upset tho happiness ot their lovely
homo. Ho had been honest with her. Ho
had concealed his deep knowledge of tho
game. But there came n time when ho saw
bis chance and took it, Ho gave her four
kings and ho himself took four nces. Her
eyes glistened. She grabbed half her pile
and put it in. He put everything ho had
to It. Sho added hers, Ho went out into
the pantry and taking a handful of stakes
from the coffeo repository, threw them
down defiantly. Sho went to tho sumo
place, sii zed the cnuister and returning in
wild excitement turned it up on the table.
Against her four great, bearded bedizined
kings there were four miserable little spots,
there was a pause for a moment; tho calm
before tho cyclone. Ho still carries a scar
where tho tin can struck him, and the hired
girt was picking up coffeo for a week,

families in the 6tate, his grandfather having
been among the first settlers in the neigh
borhood of KaBkaskia when Illinois was a
trackh'ss wilderness, tvherc he came with
bis wife and seven sons and established the
first Baptist church, in the state,
and during a long life preached
the goupcl according to tho firm,
unswervering belief of the early Baptists, to
the hardy settlers who devoted themselves
to reclaiming the rich country around them
from the savages who had for centuries
held it in possession. Six of his seven sons
as they grew up to manhood became
preachers, following in the footsteps of
their father and their names are identified
with the early history of the Baptist
church and the farmer preachers of Illi
nois. Ono of these sons settled in St. Clair
county near Collinsville, where ho engaged
in larming ami preaching the Batist re
ligion fp.m the pulpit of a church built by
himself, in tho country 3 miles south of
Collinsville, anil known as "Bethel church"

the finest in tho slate, is held mostly by the
dependents of the first Limcns and is
known in all the r gin round about as the
"Lemon settlement," tho family having
held possession of its rich lands for nearly
a hundred years. Jis. Lemon was a warm
hearted, puio minded man, ono whose
heart, during a long and changeful life, al
ways inclined to deeds of kindiiesfl, whose
cars were never deaf to tho cry of distress
and whose hand w.is alw-yj ( pen for the

of tho Master, and dying ho has gone to bis
