j The agitation among the j rank?
and file as well as the leaders of
the colored people iii Columbia
to improve our school conditions,
resulted some months ago in. the
?pppintment-of a committee of
representative men to prepM'?.a
memorial to present to the tibard
of school commissioners.. The
memorial was prepared.- submit
ted to a mass meeting held at
Sidney Par!; church, and fh#ce
..'. then ' '..*... "?iionoly ?. opted?
A committee v. as then oelect?d
to present the memorial to this
board. After weeks of effort
they succeeded-in getting an op
portunity, and on Wednesday
night of last week appeared be
fore the board and presented th?
memorial. Those appearing be,
fore the board were:- Reverends
N. C. Cleaves, J. J. Durham. C.
C. Scott, Messrs Joseph Pelot
Issac S. Levy, N. H Collins, G
W. Pegues, N. S. Shelton. Th<
memorial is a strong and con vin
cing paper, and will doubtlesi
have effect. The members o
the school board who were pres
ent, some of them were absent
expressed themselves as being ii
sympathy with us, and is willinj
todo all that is possible for th
colored people; but said they di
not see their way clear to ac
just at present upon any of th
requests made, but would consit
er them carefully and take actio
just as soon as possible. Whil
there is a desire on the part c
some persons to have the men
orial published ir The Souther
Indicator, the memorial commi
tee as well as The lndicat<
believes it is not expedient to c
so; at any rate notexpedient ju
now. The Indicator will keep i
readers advised from time to tin
of what is being done in regan
to the matter.

of Lhe old reliable and ever ready

seen seated in the buggy behinc
the "old gray" wet with sweal
and with foam on the bit, slowly
and meditatively returning fron
Ward One, where he had gone a

quick and get a dead man. H<
too nad been hoaxed. On oui
way back we found the gravi
digger in chief, seated in the of

looking like the chief mourner a
his own funeral; he too it ap
pears had been April fooled
And these three firms of under
takers at their respective place
of business, picked up a copy o
Tne Southern Indicator and rea
from it the following lines. -
"Alas! Alas! O'Lackaday!
What three mocked fools thes
mortals be!"
Speaking of Aprils Fool's I)aj
reminds us of an incident thi
happened some years ago. Ol
man Sizer kept a hotel in
little country town in Wester
North Carolina. He had a ne'e
do well son named Dennis, wi
loafed around the hotel and rei
dered but little service. Denn
had a habit of looking over tl
shoulders of the guests vvhi
they sat at the desk writing thc
letters. One young fellow r
cently arrived and of a poe!
frame of mind, while writing
his best girl, happened to fe
some one brushing up beni
him. He had heard of Denn
propensity, and without appare
stop or hesitancy continued 1
writing and penned these linef
"I've seen some men who we
very wise,
And then again some wiser;
Butthe biggest fool I've e^
seen
His name is Dennis Sizer."
