k::.ra:n and jem smith.
A Tal J with Richard K. Fox in Paris-
The Great Fight,
The correspondent of the Horning News,
Paris, has interviewed Richard K. Fox, the
backer of Juke Kilrain, in reference to the
latest particulars of the international prize j
fight, between Jake Kilrain and Jem Smith I
fnr the relief Gazette diamond belt, $lO,OOO
an ,i the championship of the world. The
correspondent write's: “Mr. Richard K. Fox,
tie- liacker of Jake Kilrain in the coining
C n .it. international light, is now in Paris.
He comes from London with fresh and
grateful memories of his reception at the
pelican Club and elsewhere. His visit to
Paris lies no direct reference to the coining
fi-lit, the details of which are left to the
bmuL of Mr. W. E. Harding.
“ ‘Yes,’ said Mr. Fox, warmly, ‘I am
proud of this light. Do not believe a word
of those wiio say that it. is a mere advertis
ing job. The diamond belt is worth £5OO
in good English money, and I shall give
Jake Kilrain $l,OOO to back himself. I may
j. , tvefi tell you at. once that 1 am prepared
to double the stakes if Jem Smith’s backers
ore willing. For my part, if Kilrain wins
the tight, 1 will make him present of all the
money. I think you must say that our
combination beats the Heenan and Sayers
combat to tits, seeing that, that fight was
only tor £2OO a side.’
■•'Asked whether the tight would take
place in Franco, Mr. Fox drew up, and de
clared that there must be no shuttling or in
terference this time. Spain was mentioned
at , the likely arena of the Kilrain and Smith
fight. But the clauses of the challenge are,
of course, not biudiug. One of these stipu- j
lates that the combat shall take place within I
one hundred miles of Madrid. All this is I
kept secret. ‘I should like personally,’ said j
Mr. Fox, ‘that the fight should take place
in America. I offered Jem Smith $l,OOO to
cross the Atlantic. For sonie'beason he did
not accept it. Gibraltar has been mentioned
as the trysting place, and oue kind friend
has recommended the semi-neutral Island of
Pheasants, near St. Jean de Luz. Where
monarchs have met to patch up royal mar
riages and to arrange the affairs of Europe,
honest prize-fighters may struggle for the
world's belt, the symbol of superiority be
tween Jem Smith and Jake Kilrain.’
■■ ’Have you seen Jem Smith!’
“ -Yes, and I fully recognize his points.
You have got the ad vantage of me over his
legs for, to tell you the truth, I have not
seen them. But 1 can imagine them, and I
have no disposition to vilipend tile other
“ ’What about Sullivans’
“‘Well, they say he is out of the hunt
since he broke his arm. apart from other
and by no means unimportant reasons. On
this subject I must be reticent. But if you
will go to the Grand Hotel you will rind,
with my authorization, the copy of a cable
gram sent last night to my New York office,
in which I say substantially that should
Jake Kilrain beat Jem Smith I am pre
pared to back him against Sulli
van for $lO,OOO to $20,000. I should
like you to put that down, because it
is a matter on which lam very explicit.
The American papers have been very talk
ative of late about a series of sparring ex
peditions. which, I suppose, are intended to
cloud Kilrain. Well, of course, anybody is
entitled to his own show, and every man
can be his own champion, if he likes. Ido
not lay much stress, however, upon these
wondrous projects A prize-fighter doe*
not make his money by big fights only. The
curiosity of the public is always excited by
exhibitions of muscular activity in which
the actors are the celebrities of the ring.
This has nothing to do with the great issue
at stake, which amounts to the champion
ship of the two hemispheres. ’
“ ‘Do you think that the public interest
in prize lighting is as great as ever!’
“ ‘Well. I don’t know what may lie the
amount of excitement over the noble art on
this side of the Atlantic, although I can
guess it from what I saw m London. Tho
English aristocraci will always provide a
certain number of patrons of the ring. The
Marquis of Queensberry and .Sir John Astley
do not stand alone in their advocacy of
something far higher'in tone than the pink
ing and pistol-shooting of French duelists.
As far as America is concerned, all I can say
is this; May the Fates decide that the great
battlefield of the future shall be the prize ring.
France, Germany and Russia might then
fling up their respective sponges arid leave
the world to the valor of fisticuffs. Tap
ping claret is better than torpedo warfare,
and the bread-basket is a citadel that may
be attacked without increasing the national
debt. It is certainly false nioralism to ac
cept. wholesale bloodshed as allowable and
to t urn up the w hites of the eyes over a
good old mill, which is the ideal of a light
between man aud man, in which there are
neither knives nor six-shooters. Possibly
my diamond belt is the finest war indem
nity of the century.’
“In conclusion, Mr. Fox stated that in
the coming fight every arrangement will be
made to keep out anything savoring of the
riff-raff element. There will lie no fear of
rope-cutting or ugly rushes. The audience
will be limited to just 100 spectators, fifty
on each side, each of these paying £5O for
his share in the day’s proceedings. The
press will, of course, receive a limited num
ber of invitations. ‘Mum,’ however, will
be the great word of the situation. The
man who is fortunate enough to be
classified w. 'i the initiated will have
to be pr * ired to receive a tele
gram in the dead of night requesting
him to take th firs; train to some Spanish
bull ring. Pistols and foils are winked at
in France, but th > sight of a stand-up fight
would shock the vigilant gendarme and
upset tho apple cart of French judicial pro
Asa supplement to the above interview,
it may tie useful to add that here in Paris
Jem Smith is the decided favorite in tho
great coming fight. The fact is that friend
Jem has been seen at work, and his per
formances at Maison Laftlte and the Nou
veau Cirque have made him popular. It
only remains to be seen who will be the con
queror in the first tournament.
Cure for Insomnia.
From Chambers Journal.
I had frequently noticed that when en
gaged in deep thought, particularly at
night, there seemed to tie something like a
compression ot tho eyelids, the upper one
especially, aud the eves themselves were
apparently turned upward, as if looking in
that direction. This invariably occurred,
and the moment that, by an effort, I ar
rested the course of thought aud freed tho
mind from tho subject with which it was
engaged the eves resumed their natural
position and the compression of the lids
Now, it occurred to me one night that I
would not allow the eyes to turn upward,
but kept them determinedly in the opposite
liosition, as if looking down; and, having
dona so for a short time. I found that the
mind did not revert to the thoughts with
which it had Vieeu occupied, and I soon fell
asleep. I tried the plan again with the same
result, and, after an experience of two
years. I can truly say that, unless when
something really annoying or worrying
occurred, T have always been able logo to
sleep very shortly after retiring to rest.
Thero may occasionally be some difficulty
in keening the eyes in the position I have
described, but a determined effort to do so
is all that is required, and 1 am certain
that, if kept in the down-looking position,
it will bo found that composure aud sleep
will bo the result.

A SHOCKING CRIME RECALLED.
Arrest of Two Men for a Murder Com
mitted Seventeen Years Ago.
From the Few York Graphic.
Nashville, Te.nw. , Oct. 11. —On June 10
last Gov. Taylor issued requisition papers
for the arrest of Nat H. Whittaker, then in
the State of Arkansas. Whittaker 3vas
arrested in Boone county, that State, aud
brought to Tennessee a few days ago by
Mack Roland, Deputy Sheriff of Boone
county. The return of Whittaker to Ten
nessee revives the memory* of one of the
most horrible murders ever committed in
the State. The crime for which Whittiker
is to be tried was committed in Overton
county in January, IS7O, but the details
have never been published.
The victim was Andrew Wilson, a well
to-do farmer, living not far from Roaring
river and eleven miles from Livingston, and
the causes that led to the murder are about
those: Wilson was not only a farmer, but
ail extensive dealer in horses and mules.
Twice a year he made trips to Alabama and
Georgia with droves of horses. This life led
him into an extensive aud intimate acquain
tance, not only with the people of the coun
try, but with the country itself. At the
dose of the war this acquaintance gave him
a peculiar fitness for seeking out and captur
ing horse thieves that infested that country.
Mr. Wilson and Price Whitaker had a per
sonal difficulty about the amount of pay
that the former should receive for capturing
a thief and the horses stolen from the latter.
This quarrel was taken up by Price Whitta
ker's son, Nat H. Whittaker.
It was on a cold night in January that
Mr. Wilson and his oldest son, John T. Wil
son. were uwakened by heavy footsteps ap
proaching the house. A moment later two
men stepped upon the floor of the piazza ex
tending along the side of the house, and two
more steps were heard at the door on the
other side of the dwelliug. Someone,
whose voice several of the family claim to
have recognized as that of Nat Whittaker,
called to Mr. Wilson to own the door. They
refused to tell who they were, but insisted
they were friends. Mr. Wilson and his son,
a young man of 20 years, went to the two
doors aud positively refused admittance un
less those outride would tell who they were.
The father armed himself with an ax, the
son with a hatchet and stood guard.
The Ku-Klux, as they claimed to be, then
began an attack with rails and stones upon
the door. Fading in this way to effect an
entrance they told Mr. Wilson that if he
did not open the do. >r they would burn the
house and kill every member of the family;
but if he would open the door no one should
be hurt. The door was then opened and the
four men marched in with their pistols
cocked, at the time professing friendship.
As the first one canto in his mask was
knocked aside and the face of a man who, it
is said, was recognized as Samuel Law-sou,
was revealed. After the men had entered
they took Mr. Wilson at the muzzle of three
cocked pistols, aud led him out of the yard
into the lane in front of the house. His
family followed him out, begging the men
not to kill him, but while his w ife and his
oluest son were on their knees pleading for
his life, two of the men placed their pistols
to his breast and fired. He fell in the arms
of his son Robert, a youth not 15 years old.
The murderers ran away, leaving the terri
fied family with their dead and the darkness
The remainder of the night was spent by
the bereaved family in abject terror, fear
ing that every sound told of the return of
the slayers. Early in the morning an anon
ymous note w as found near the gate, saying:
“We come here for this purpose. We will
kill the whole family if anything is said
about it.” As soon as the body of the father
was buried his oldest son, John, fearful for
his life, left the neighborhood aud went to
Kentucky. In April following two masked
men rode up to the house of Mrs. Wilson
and ordered the family to leave the neigh
borhood at once on pain of death. They
left their home in a few days and joined
The murder seems to have passed out of
the mind of the public, but not out of the
minds' of the IV ilsons. They were deter
mined that the murder of their father
should lie legally avenged. The family
drifted into poverty and into the West,
finally settling in Arkansas. By some
some strange fortune Nat Whittaker also
went West aud settled in the same State,
and near enough to the Wilsons for John,
who had become a Presbyterian minister
and Sunday-school evangelist, to discover
him. The second son, Robert, then quietly
came back to Overton county, went before
the grand jury, had Whittaker aud Lawson
indicted, and their arrest followed. They
will lie tried at the coming term of the Cir
cuit Court, if the Wilsons can come from
the. West, where they live, to appear as wit

Moral Lessons as Taught ir. the
Language of the Frog.
From Vie Wesleyan Christian Advocate.
Speaking of traveling on Sunday, I am
reminded of a good thing I heard on Judge
Colquitt, father of Senator Colquitt. He
was a Methodist preacher, and a good one,
too. He used to go to the courts on Sun
day, and, to ease his conscience, he always
stopped if he came across a church on his
way, and sometimes preached. On oue oc
casion he stopped at a Hardshell Baptist
church. When he went in the preacher
was belaboring the different denominations
other than his own. He at length
got to the Methodists (of course
he didn't know Judge Colquitt).
He said they reminded him of a tree frog.
They got on one limb and they said higher,
and then got on another limb above and
they say higher, and thus they go on til!
they get to the top, at A) down they come
kerflop, aud, brethren, that’s what they call
falling from grace. When he was done he
said if there was anybody present that
wanted to speak he’d” be ” glad to hear
from them. Judge Colquitt arose and
thanked him for the privilege of speak
ing; said the brother’s illustration, of
the true frog reminded him of another sort
of frog in Southern Georgia. You might
walk along beside a creek and shake a bush
and you’d hear something go ker-dip as it
struck the water, and seemed to say, as it
went under, safe. Then after a while you'd
see the same frog crawling out on a rock in
the middle of the stream, ami changing his
voice, he would say, “Gim-me the jug—gim
me the jug.” ...
The Baptist brother admitted that the
Judge got him on the frog story.
Origin of Blue Writing Paper.
From the London Press-News.
A singular story is recorded concerning
the origin of blue-tinted paper now so much
in vogue for commercial uses. The wife of
an English paper manufacturer named Wil
liam East, going into the factory on the
domestic wash day with an old-fashioned
blue-bag in her hand, accidentally let the
bag and its contents fall into a vat full of
pulp. She thought nothing of the incident,
and said nothing about it either to her hus
band or his workmen. Great was the as
tonishment of the latter when the paper
turned out a peculiar blue color, while
the master was vexed at what he
regarded as gross carelessness on the
part of some of the hands. His wife—
wise woman—kept her own council.
Tlie lot of paper was regarded as
unsaleable and was stored for four years
At length East consigned it to his London
correspondent with instructions to sell it
for what it would bring. The unlucky
paper was accepted as a happily-designed
novelty, and was disposed of in open market
at a considerable advance in price. Judgo
Mr East’s surprise when he received from
his agent an order for a large invoice of the
despised blue paper! Here was a pretty
dilemma; he was totally ignorant of the
manner in which the paper had bocomeblue
in color, and in his perplexity mentioned
the matter to his wife. She promptly en
lightened her lord: ho in turn kept the sim
ple process secret and was ior many years
the monopolist, of the blue commercial
