Excerpt: ...paid to Jerry Rook, proved to be the last. On meeting the contracting parties, and applying for the sixth, he found to his great surprise, as well as chagrin, that the grand secret was gone out of his keeping, and his power over them at an end! They were not only prepared to repudiate, but talked of his refunding, and even threatened to lynch him upon the spot. So far from making his claim, he was but too glad to get out of their company. It is probable they would have insisted upon the repayment, or put lynching in practice, but for fear of the scandal that either must necessarily create in the community. To this was Jerry indebted for his escape from their vengeful indignation.
