words spoken in clarion tones b)
"Liberal Jack" last Saturday morn
ing. Now Jack \vas an innoceni
looking young man, and took the
pains to explain to the satisfactiori
of all that his nlaml was J. F.
Pell, ropresenting the Poll M'f'g.
Co., of Charleston. He stated that
at Iis homo0 in Charleston, he was
known as "Liberal Jack", because
he gave away so much jewelry and
money to advertise the house for
which ho was traveling.
Jack then wont through the mo
tion of hypnotizng a little nigger
ho had along in the buggy. This
exposition was startling in the ex
tremo-tho little niggor shut his
eves as he was told to do and
looked just like any other sleepy
little nigger would, that had
drunk a quart of buttermilk and
eaten half a dozon big "nigger
chokers." lack saw that his per
formanco had creatod but little on.

was Imerely a )10l11( to get the
crowd togathor. 'Tho time had

"Gentleuen, I am here to-day to

advertisers out of you! Come clo

smiled approvingly and came clo.

'Ihe popuiace chuckled and el
bowed their way a little closer to
"Liberal Jack." Jack then pro
tOne(ld that ho heard some "Smart
Aleck" sayl he was going to sell
them. lie promiscuously threw
out a few pairs to show what
"Smart Alock" had told. He fur
ther lroposed to show "Smart
Aleck" that he could sell a few
if he wanted to and proceeded to
tell several at 25c each. The pop.
ulaco chuckled and chunked in
thsir chink. Those who trusted
him for a luarter, got from the
hat a quarter and a ring or a pair
of cuff buttons, 8ome got even two
quarters, especially those beaaing

Jack then held up a number of
glittering chains and stated that
lie was going to give every man
one that would wear it. He again
scored "Smart Aleck" and stated
that ho would just show him that
lie could soll the chains for $1.
And the p)opulace chuckled and
chuoked in their chink.
Jack then triumphantly called
out: "Men I am going to make
you proud. Some "neighbor"just
to put "Sm-art Aleck" to shame, let
me have a dollar, and after awbile
you'll be proud with your draw
from the hat''! And the populaoe

for chains lagged the least bit, they
were marked "Liberal Jack", "'J,

people chueleled and chunked it

When Jack had disposed o:
about 75 chamns at $1 each, lie an

populace winked and blinked bul
