A man giving the euphonious
name of Jones, struck this town last
week, and engaged board at the
home of Mr. W. H. Lipscomb, on
Sixth Street. On Thursday he wen
to Ilev. W. R. McKennon, Intro
ducing himself as J. C. Marvin, and
stating that he was a Methodist
preacher and had a charge at Pa
ducah, Ky. He also produced
letter from Rev. G. C. Kelley, of
Birmingham, recommending him to
members of the ministry. He
stated that he was in straightened
e'reumstances and wanted enough
money to get home on. Mr. McKen
non's sympathies were aroused, and
he started about to raise a colleo
tion for him. He had not proceeded
far, however, until he came across
Mr. Ed Turner, who also boards at
Mr. Lipscomb's. Mr. Turner told
Mr. McKennon that the man wa
going under different names, and
their suspicion beine aroused, th
matter was placed in the hancU of
officer Jackson, who placed th
needy "minister" under arrest
When he was approached by officer
Jackson he tore uo the letter alleged
to have been written by Rev. G. C
Kelley, or Birmingham, and ad
mitted that the papers had been
forged. He then gave the officer
another alias, this time calling him
self C. M. Palmer, and said his
home was in Earlville, 111.; but,
response to a telegram of inquiry
the City Marshall at Earlvillo said
no such man was known there. Th
man had letters in his possession
addressed to him in nearly every
state in the Union. He is still being
neid on suspicion, and the officers
are endeavoring to find out who h
is and where he is from.

and let your hearts pity them, not
