I forgot to say that the day I
Mxtnt in Kilgore (New Hope) was
No. 2 in the Christmas and such
Christmas table comforts as town
folk can not buy were to be had
in abundance without even the ask
ing. In Dallas.
Just to keep aa Important engage
ment, I took the midnight north
bound train on the L & G. N., for
Longview, reaching the East Texas
Manufacturing town of Longview, the
second hour of the day. I went
to bed on a bench made of twisted
oak and folded my gloves and tiel
them in a bundle with my 'kerchief
for a pillow. I slept here without
rocking from 2 till 6:30 when the
train came which was scheduled to
get there at 3:15. This was the
T. & P., fast train for the west I
reached Dallas a little while before
the middle meal of the day and
went to work. I finished as the
King of Day lit up the Golden West,
and "Just as Twilight let down her
curtain and pinned R with a star,"
I laid my garments by upon my bed
to rest, for the first time in 72 hours.
Having rested my tired frame, .1
went to Hawkins, Texas,
the next morning, which was Dec.
28, 1918," where Bro. Swann, of Ty
ler, a comlmttee 'of one met me and
soon I was in the Hawkins Baptist
church over which Rev. Williams was
acting as pastor, but resigned the
day I left Right on the get-off I
may as well tell you that I was in
Hawkins on the invitation of Rev.
R. B. Francis of Tyler, who is the
president of the Mincola Baptist
Board of the East Texas Associa
tion. Rev. - Francis is the treasurer
of the Association, a pastoring
preacher, a . college trustee, a pros
perous land owner and an all 'round
man of affairs. He is back of the
idea of having only brick buildings
on the Campus of East Texas Acad
emy at Tyler, which will mean an
outlay of some $50,000. This is
some change, but Francis is some
But back to Hawkins! Hawkins
lays no claim to being a city, not
much town just a good wide place
in the road, but it is surrounded
by a colony of wealthy Colored farm
ers, wh0.se property is absolutely
unbelievable by the average Colored
man, who has spent his whole life
time living in town out of a paper
sack in other words from hand to
mouth to be more exact as a min
ister would say: "living on the
providence of God." For instance,
there's Parson S. H. Halwkins owns
400 acres of land and a grocery
store to feed his tenants. Then
there's Claude Watson, who owns
a fortune in two large club lakes
and report equipment on a ISO acre
tract of land and has a bank ac
count of $1400. R Pulham beside
owning 360 aores of land operates
a grocery store with his son carry
ing a $4,000 stock. S. P. Prince
owns 164 acres, and King Godson
owns half a hundred. Now here the
rest as near as I could get them:
Jack Brown, 400 acres; Prof. A
Price, 300; Jobe Bros., 700; R. Kel
ly, 200; T. Davis, 250; B. H. Hall,
160; W. M. Hall, 175; Col. G. Price,
161; J. A. Brown, 120; Jim Cullars,
100; William Hall, 101; Willie White,
120; G. B. Hall, 100; George Rich
ard, 100; Garflell Johnson, 100; Rev.
T. j. Jackson, 120; Jesse Hawkins,
100; S. J. Hawkins, 100; Rice H.
Price, 100; Colonel Price, 161. There
are others, but I counted an acreage
owned by the men of color amount
ing to 8,000.
A. D. Williams is the section fore
man at Crow, Texas (next stop)
and has hold the job against all
comers for four years.
Jnrvis Institute, Prof. Irvin, prin
cipal is located here. It Is a dream.
It employs 16 teachers and has 135
students. Among other things, it
operates a saw mill and farm. The
property will register around $100,
000. Prof. Frost is one of the migh
ty men of Jarvls.
The Hawkins high school is housed
In large roomy building. It is mod
ern. It is finished. It is the last
word In rural sohool building. The
school operates 9 months, has 85
students. Prof. A. Price is the effi
cient principal. Miss Dove Fea ranee
Is the aide. Messrs. C. A. Pi.4cock,
J. F. Parish and F. B. Ponler, all
white men, are trustees, but they
are the kind who take no stock in
the notion that education runs a
field hand. If white trustees over
Texas cou'd be carried to Hawkins
they would go back to their re
spective districts with a better idea
and a never vlbi-m. Hats off to the
white trutuees of Hawkins Colore'
school. Buy the iway I like to have
forgot to say that the school people
lent us the house to hold our meet
ing and I am writing thanks.
-The Board The Boa.d meeting
under the direction of Rev. Fran
ols was a success, despite the bitter
and unrejoicin, weather, the amount
raised was $C10.26. In Sunday school
Miss Lillian Hall's class raised $23.
46 and Miss Annie Whltten's class
raised $23.42. Prof. Price was sup
erintendent. Revs. Sid Stephens, Dr.
Ana.ews and Rev. Francis did the
preaching and I made my war talk.
The next meeting goes to Edgewood.
The time is the Friday before the
5th Sunday in March. Keep the
date in tiiind. Rev. Williams who re
signed the (hureh while we were
in session is a fine man and leaves
a fine people. The Methodist preach

and I was glad to see it. This

builds a race. Those who helpr
Among those who came to me and
o'tered there subscriptions to the
Express were: E. C. Charner, J. A.
Brown, J. M. Cullars, Willie White,
Geo. Richards, HIT lard Johnson, A.
T. Williams, Garfield Johnson, E. P.
Prince.. I did not have to run them
down as a dog does a rabbit They
are Intelligent No argument is nec
essary to get a Negro with sense to
take a Negro newspaper.
Was my next stop, I arrived there
somewhere around 1:00 o'clock Mon
day morning, ond a pretty good show
er of rain, face to tucc', I bad a
mile to count tha ores tlof out to the
Dli.knon Colored Orptianmo, but I
madu it in company wild a soldier
a former inmate of the Or
phanage, who was returning from
the "Camps". We had our difficul
ties on the way falling over rail
road switches, Jumping cattle-guards
and crawling trestles, but the end
was not yet we had the Orphanage
watch dogs to face and they are
some dogs I hallooed myself hoarse
without awakening any one, and
finally I suggested to the young
draftee Uut while he did not have a
chance to go to France; he could
now show his metal by routing the
dogs. Taking me at my word, he
armed himself with plenty of brick
bat ammunition and marched to the
attack. We won the victory and
entered the fort The aroused sup
erintendent and his aides finding who
led the attaok capitulated and with
out further hostilities we entered
the castle at 2:35 a. m., Dec. 30,
1918. Tired out and worn out we
were no sooner in bed than asleep
and I slept too soundly to even
Bye and bye the morning came
and after a hearty breakfast Rev.1
W. L. Dickson the founder and sup
erintendent took me over the
What I saw The Beginning.
To commence at the start and
to start at the commencement the
Orphange is about a mile from the
Gilmer Courthouse, which is in the
heart of the business district It
occupies a commanding portion a
hill which slopes toward the setting
sun. It was founded by Rev. W. L.
Dickson, the present superintendent
It was organized and chartered July,
1899 and dedicated Jan. 4, 1901. Its
first board of trustees was composed
of eight Colored and four white
men, Dr. R. C. Buckuer, D. D., be
ing Its first president, serving four
years. He was sucoeedel by Rev. Dr.
A. S. Jackson of Dallas, Texas, then
and now pastor New Hope Baptist
church. After a -service of four
years, he retired and Rev. W. L.
Dickson succeeded to the presidency.
Once County Farm
It might be Interesting to know
that the 100 acres now used as .an
orphanage was once the Upshur
County Convict Farm, and was
bought from the county by Rev. W.
L. Dickson and converted into a
house for dependent children. He
was at that time pastor of Gilgal
All of the buildings which were
left on the site and which had been
used for prison purposes were burn
ed down March 17, 1901, and the
same conflagration destroyed 250
bushels of corn. The day the spot
was delicated six children were re
ceived and Miss Mamie C. Jones of
Marshall was installed as matron,
cook and her charges eight per
sons in all is still standing, and
is being used a dry good warehouse.
It is a single room 16x18.
Today the campus of the orphan
age contains (14) fourteen buildings,
commodious and substantial, beside
well filled barns and cattle and horse
and hog well fed and sleek. . Every
child is clean and well fed and Dr.
Dickson told me that each child
owned two good pairs of shoes and
two or more suits of clothes. Beside
Music, Domestic Art and Science and
Agriculture, a high school course
Is open to every child. 1
This Is the curriculum. I noticed
something else not on the curricu
lum, and that was firm control and
a demand for absolute obedience. I
saw more well behaved - children at
Dickson's orphanage than outside of
it and I cheerfully recommend his
rules for Colored homes. We would
have better cMldren. A white man
said to me: "Yes, when Dickson's
children come up town, we know
them on account of their intelligence
Beside the educational advantage
at the Orphanage, every year cer
tain schools give sccholarships to
deserving children. This year schol
arships were given by all colleges
In Texas, except Bishop College,
Marshall, Texas, and by Arkansas
(Little Rock) Baptist College, and
Meharry and FIsk at Nashville, Tenn.
Nearly 4,000 Children.
Since the institution opened 3998
children have enrolled. Ninety-two
girls and seventeen boys have reach
ed their majority and married. Ten
boys are in France and nineteen in
different army camps, while twenty
two boys have been engaged in war
work. Dr. Tom Dickson now prac
ticing medicine at Bartlett Texas,
was at one time' an orphan here.
Miss Martha Moxley is an accom
plished musician while Miss Jessie
Jackon is teaching lq Arkansas.
The present faculty Is composed
Miss Inez Veals, Principal, grad
uate of Prairie View, Dallas, Texas;
Miss Alvnrnon V. King, Music and
Primary teacher, Dallas, graduate of
Prairie View; Miss R. L. Washing
ton, Alabama, teacher of Domestic
Science and Art and Agriculture,
graduate of Tuskegee and Howard
University; Mrs. Sarah Furch, Ty

The good influence of the orphan
age has made a county convict farm
unnecessary. Upshur County has
none. This year the, orphanage has
raised something like $3000 worth of
cotton, 3000 bu&hels of sweet po
tatoes, a house full of peanuts, and
all other farm products an1 fruits
Verily, Dickson has worked a mi
racle. I ani writing these lines for
for the information of the people
generally, to the end that they may
the better understand in - what a
great work they engage, when they
help Dickson and his orphans.
A great meeting of mighty men
bad been called by Y'ke Marathon

which Colored peopele ge at the
