The Redemption of Rawhide (1911)
- Summaries (1)
Rawhide, Arizona, was certainly some tough town when Reverend Simpson first blew in from civilization and started his campaign of redemption. From Alkali Ike to Shorty Smith, not a man of them had seen the inside of a church in fourteen years; there has never been a sermon preached in the county, and the only hymns that had ever been heard were those of the coyotes. The Rev. Simpson soon set up the "Rawhide Mission," but in spite of the hot weather, the result was a heavy frost. Nobody came even as far as the door, except Black Mike, who was drunk and who thought he was at the XXX saloon. The worthy pastor pleaded, prayed and billed the town without result. He undertook a one-man raid on the Silver King club-room, but soon landed wrong side up in the street. He was in despair and the redemption of Rawhide seemed a long way off. Just at his darkest hour, however, his daughter came to town to assist him. The results were magical. The boys straightened up and brushed up. They didn't bank very much on the sermon, but certainly were strong for Sunday School, where Mary taught. Mary had the Bible class and they were all in it. The town soon turned temperance and the faro dealer made a shack to shack collection for the heathen. At length, they all wanted to make love to the teacher, and to prevent a riot she agreed to keep company with the one that learned the most scripture texts. The result was the hottest contest ever known in the west, and it turned out, well, it turned out to the satisfaction of all concerned.
