Thero nro thrco j.oreons, colored, of
course, directly concorned in h! matter.
Wil tain S'ovall, Meek, ugly nnd Igno
rant, Is tho hero; Martha Stovall, orange-
hued, fresh-looking, living in t to middle
of the twenties, sharp as n razor, and ad
dicted to liquor and looso virtuos, is the
heroine; Samuel Johnston, a fancy buck;
h load dresser, of winning ways; a prac
ticed colored fomalo heart-smasher, is tho
Interloper who hat invaded tho bliss of tho
Stovall mansion, "tricked" tho head of it,
transformed him into a frothing dog, pos
sessing and giving uttoranco to all tho
yelps nnd growls,bnrks nnd bays, moans and
groans known to dogology, and who has
set by tho cars till tho colored population
and n portion of tho whito, living in Cairo
and tho adjacont country into which
tho nows has ponctratcd.
THE STORY IS A REMAIIKA11LE ONE,
as told by Mrs. Stovall hcrsol' and woll
illustrates tho duplicity and tunning of
tho "smart" nlggor on tho ono hand, and
tho mental caliber, foar nnd superstition oi
tho common darkey on tho othor. It is
proper to preface Mrs. Stovall's statement
with tho remark that tho main incidents
narrated by her nro absolutely truo, ns
hundreds of persons, will testify who havo
visited tho quarters of Stovall during his
strange sickness; and if thero still should
be doubts entertained by any ono,wo adviso
that ono to at onco visit Stovall whilo in
his present condition.
MRS. STOVALL SAYS
sho boa been living with Stovall, as his
wifo for over two years ; that.ho has boon
been uniformly kind to her; has worked
for and supported her, but could never
bear to seo her talk to, walk with, or even
look at n man of her race, no matter what
might be his ago or condition. Upon ono
occasion, while conversing with tho rever
end Mr. Bradley, whom she describes at a
pure and good old man, Stovall caruo up
nnd becamo so exasperated that sho was
obliged to run away to save herself from
his wrath. Immediately aftorwardho went
to bod and threatened to kill himself, un
loss sho would twear to novor speak or
look at "that man" again. Promising that
sho would not, henroso from his bed, and
was soon himself again.
ABOUT TOUR WEEKS A (10,
Stovall left tho city, to work in tbo coun
try, saying that he would bo absent for a
couple of months at least. Stovall's back
had scarcely been turned upon his homo
when tho fascinating Johnson entered and
took complete possession, nt tho request of
tho falsa Mrs. S. This condition of af irs
