overrulled the special demurrer, and

The Cynthiana Log Cabin tells of a resident
of Pendleton county having his pocket picked
of $148 by a fortune teller connected with
the Robinson circus, and says that skin
games and sure thing gambling devices were
as thick as fleas on the monkeys. It was
the same way in Paris, although we have not
heard of any large sums being lost. To show
that the circus proprietors themselves in
league with the swindlers, a prominent
attache of the circus called at The News
office on the day that they exhibited here,
and after asking if there was anything he
could to in the way of giving extra tickets,
etc., requested that if they should happen
to get into any trouble he would appreciate
it as a favor if The News would refrain from
"roasting" the show.
