 Another Good Man Gone Wrong

According to a local item in last week's Vinita Chieftain D N Leerskov, a well-known preacher of this nation, has wandered somewhat from the "straight and narrow path" of rectitude. It is said the Reverend went to Fort Smith last week with a woman not his wife and registered at a hotel as "D N Leerskov and Lady." The twain occupied the same room from Friday till Monday, when the irate hotel man, after finding out the true state of affairs, fired them out. Leerskov was formerly a resident of Tulsa and pastor of the Presbyterian church at Red Fork, and bore a good reputation. He was a merchant at the latter place, and it will be remembered he distinguished himself last fall by defending himself against the Green gang of outlaws who attempted to rob his store, badly wounding one of the outlaws and being seriously wounded himself. While he proved himself able to defend himself against the onslaught of a band of desperadoes, he was evidently not able to withstand the wiles of a pretty but naughty woman. The woman is said to have been a teacher of the Cherokee national schools.
