At last we have the pleasure of an
nouncing the fact that one of our colored
citizens has gone into the real estate
business. Mr. T. H. Lyles whose ad
veitisement appears on our first page is
well known in this community and
needs no introduction at our hands. He
came to this city about thiiteen years
ago with comparatively nothing, but by
his thrift, foresight and econemy he
now has eight houses paying him a rent
al of 1,800 per year besides his well
established business. now proposes
to help those of our people who desire
to purchase property by selling them a
portion of that which he controls. Theie
are very few of our young men whoyard,
earn less than four or five hundred
dollars per year, and certainly by strict
econemy they could each save one hun
dred dollars from their earnings to in
vest in property. Mr.Lyles has some good
lots which he can sell for tho email sum
of one hundred dollars per year. The
main trouble about buying property is
to begin once started, you keep it up,
and almost before one kuowns it, he is
the owner of a good home. Read Mr.
Lyles' advertisement and then call up
on him, and he will take you to see any
of the property on his list, and will not
fail to make satisfactory terms with any
and all. He has had so much of this
business on his hands lately that he
determined to go regularly into the
business of dealing in real estate, feeling
that in this way he can be of consider
able service to those who are really
anxious to own their own homes.
Moitgage, loans can be obtained of him,
at reasonable rates. We hope our read
ers will not think too long about this
matter, but will begin now, to better
theircondition.More fortunes have been
made out of real estate in this city than
in any other way, and the opportunities
are as good now as they ever were.
AFRAID OF THE ANGELS.
It is said that women must not vote,
because they are angels and in the
next breath it is predicted that their
votes "would generally be cast for the
worst men and the worst measures."
This suggests the story of the little boy
who was told that he need not be afraid
to go to bed in the dark, because angels
would be there to watch over him.
only sobbed the harder, and answered,
"It is the angels themselves that I'm
afraid of!" If women are angels, the
influence of their votes could hardly be
otherwise than good, and no one need
be afraid of them. On the other hand,
if they are only ordinary human beings,
why should they not have ordinary

FLESH SLOUGHING OFF IN PIECES,
For two years I have been confined to
bed with a loathsome form of Blood
Poison, 'which had about eaten me up,
and I and otheis had no hope of a re
covery. For a while I could neither
walk, sit down, nor lie down, only in
misery as my flesh seemed to be falling
off my bones in pieces as big as a hen
egg. My appetite was lost, my bones
ached and pained me, and iriends even
shunned me. I used various blood purr
fiers without benefit, and several pnysi
cians treated me until large sura's of
money had been expended, but not one
particle of good did any one give me.
On the 9thofFebruaiy., 1886, Mr.
R. Jackson called to see if I was not
dead, as it was throught I could not en
