A Committee* v/?s then : selected
to. present the meraorial to this
hoard. After weeks of effort
they succeeded- in getting an op
portunity, and on Wednesday
hight of last week appeared be
fore tne board and presented the
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. The
memorial is a strong and convin
cing paper, and will doubtless
have effect. The members oi
the school board who were pres
ent, some of them were absent
expressed themselves as being ir
sympathy with us, and is willinj
todo all that is possible for thc
colored people; but said they dk
not see their way clear to ac
just at present upon any of th?
requests made, but would consid
er them carefully and take actioi
just as soon as possible. Whil
there is a desire on the part o
some persons to have the mern

tee as well as The Indicate
believes it is not expedient to d
so; at any rate not expedient jus
now. The Indicator will keep il
readers advised from time to tim

On Wednesday night, April ls
a select number of friends gat
ered by invitation at the res
dence of Mrs Williams, widow
Mr, Ben Williams, to participa
in the celebration of her 82i
birthday. They found her as e
tive and vigorous and as convc
sati?nal as ever. Her chief coi
plaint was that little two mont
old Ben Williams Frederick coi
yell like a Comanche Indian a
had thc strength of Sampson a
she couldn't manage him. ?!

firm of Ferguson and Morris, was
aeen seated in the buggy behind
the "old gray" wet with sweat
and with foam on the bit, slowly
and meditatively returning from
Ward One, where he had gone at
the call on the phone, to come
quick and get a dead man. K[e
too had been hoaxed. On our
way back we found the grave
digger in chief, seated in the of
fice of one of these undertakers,
looking like the chief mourner at
his own funeral; he too it ap
pears had been April fooled.
And these three firms of under
takers at their respective places
of business, picked un a copy of
The Southern Indicator and read
from it the following lines. -
Alas! Alas! O'Lackaday!
What three mocked fools these
mortals be!"
Speaking of Aprils Fool's Day,
reminds us of an incident thal
happened some years ago. Ole
man Sizer kept a hotel in i
little country town in Westen
North Carolina. He had a ne'ei
do well son named Dennis, wh<
loafed around the hotel and ren
dered but little service. Denni;
had a habit of looking over th?
shoulders of the guests whil
they sat at the desk writing thei
letters. One young fellow re
cently arrived and of a poeti
frame of mind, whil? writing t
his best girl, happened to fe(
some one brushing up benin
him. He had heard of Denni*
propensity, and without apparer
stop or hesitancy continued h
writing and penned these lines
"I've seen some men who wei
very wise,
And then again some wiser;
But the biggest fool I've ev
seen
His name is Dennis Sizer."
Dennis moved away and a
noyed him never again.
