1915 Tales From Old Timers #3a –

 Churches were not as plentiful in those days and services were often held at unusual places. A certain Methodist preacher came to town and wanted to hold services in one of the saloons. Someone named Jack Ware promised to make all the necessary arrangements. On the appointed day, the preacher arrived at the saloon and inquired of the proprietor if he could hold the service. “Sure” replied the saloon keeper, “ yer kin preach here, mister sky pilot, providing yer don’t disturb the poker game that’s agoing on”
