To the Editor:
—There is a sharper who has been working the physicians here in the south. He pretends to be an old graduate and usually states that he wants a draft endorsed so that he may obtain money to pay the burial expenses for some of his relatives, or to have a relative operated on. He is about 5 feet 10 inches in height and of a swarthy complexion. If you will call attention to this in The Journal and ask anyone that he tries to bunco to have him arrested and wire the chief of detectives in Nashville you will be conferring a great favor.
