Whalebone Howker, being asked for
his experience, gave it as follows:
"I was de honestest man in Detroit
until a merchant sold mo two cotton
undershirts fur all wool, an' one of his
cash boys beat me outer twenty cents
of de change. On dat samo day my
pound of coffee wa hort an ounce an'

down an' counted up dat I started life
wid fo' hundred dollars an' had been
reduced to about sixteen. I went out
dat night an' stole a bar'l of salt from
a grocer, an' befo' ten o'clock next day
dat werry man had trusted me fur fo

Shindig Watkins. Pernambuco John

Jones, all spoke to tho same point, de
claring th:it strict honesty was tho
highway to tho poor-house.and Brother
Gardner then said:
' "I ar' not a bit surprised. My owa
