Robison served notice on his church members yesterday that if they played cards or danced they might expect him to report their names to the church coun cil of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. He declares he has a little book in which he is going to keep a record of card playing and dancing; and that he will see that the official body of his church has the advantage of this information. Rev. Robison made this startling dec laration in a sermon in which he de clared that all the churches of Hum boldt are carrying a lot of dead ma terial, and that if people persist in such things as dancing and playing cards they ought to get out of the churches, and if they persist in these things and don't' get out of 'the churches" on "their own accord, then they ought to be re ported for willfully disobeying the rules of their churches.

In a'dif ficulty hero last night three men were injured by knife cuts. It appears" that David Sines was in a drunken condi tion and retired to a room at the rcstau rant with Charles Woody, who was also drinking, in order to partake a little more of the quart they had between them. While in the room they fell out about who ownded the quart of whisky, and Sipca began to cut Woody up with his knife, and at the same time to call for help. Henry Tucker, son of the proprietor of the restaurant, ran into the room at the order of his father to separate the parties, and while pulling Sipes off Woody, Sipes turned upon Tucker and cut him but not seriously, it is said. This terribly angered the peacemaker, who got a fire poker after he was cut and was about to make a short finish of Sipes, when order was restored by par ties intervening. Sipes got into a bug gy and left town, while Woody is pain fully and seriously injured in the arms and thighs, and Tucker is sore from the wound he received.
