Saturday, Dec. 17, 1021.
Reading colored journals is all
right and just what every colored
person should do; but paying for
them is of just as much importance*
at least to the publishers.

The epidemic of giving is near al j
hand and some of these folks here- J
abouts are shuddering at the pros- j
peet. $1.25 will send The Indicator to ?
a relative or friend for a year and I
serve as a weekly reminder of the j
giver. Nothing more appropriate at
. . .
Every body knows it costs much
money to run business, but some j
people seem to think that the longer |
they wait to pay bill3 the better will j
the business thrive.
Promises are alright if they are
kept but not if not kept. This is a
fact that many don't seem to real
ize or appreciate; for they pay
little or no attention to promises.
For that reason more of them
bear hard names and rightly so.

The Indicator welcomes Dr. J. C. 1
White back on the "firing line," as j
editor of The Peoples Recorder.
While The Recorder is one of the old
e3t papers in the State and has done
its share of the great work of keep
ing our people abreast of the times
as well as holding up the light of ?
hope to us, while others would
turn to us the dark side of the pic
ture as it pertains to our group, !
there is still much work for The Re- j
corder to do along with the rest of
the poorly appreciated papers,
and The Indicator welcomes
Dr. White's return to help in this
As a writer and thinker, Dr.
White has but few equals, therefore,
we bespeak for The Recorder's edito
rials that will broaden its field of use
fulness; for the thinking minds
really look to the editorial columns
of all papers for independent
thoughts and opinions.

REV. M. G. JOHNSON.
In the sudden passing away or
the 8th, of Rev. M. G. Johnson,
moved away one of Columbia's old
t, must dependable, und upright
tizens. Rev. Johnson was indeed
great man and did many great
ungs in his day. We knew Rev.
dutson initimatcly for several
?ars. He was always a quiet un
smiling Christian gentleman. In
isiness he was ns true to his prom
us as tlie cai til is to its orbit, that
i, if it was possible for him to
eup his promise, and ii* he could
ot we could always depend upon
im for a satisfactory slaloment nt
dat time, giving reasons why. He
new that was the honest way to
o busines and so governed himself.
Just tiie day before his death he
ailed at our ellice with a notice to
ie published of Iiis free service to
he prisoners at the penitentiary
he Sunday following with the ,
tutement that his previous services
it the prison had helped the
nisoncrs and he wanted to keep it
ip. Just before leaving us,he in- "
iuired whether he owed us anything
for The Indicator. We assured him '
hat he owed us nothing and that if '
ill of our subscribers paid up as
promptly as did he, The Indicator
would be in better shape and a bet
ter paper. Said he, "Well if 1 owe
you anything I want to pay up."
With this he left us.but little did
we think that that was his last
visit to our ollice.
Rev. Johnson's 44 years pastorate ,
at Ladson Presbyterian Church, !
his first and only pastorate, is evi
dence enough that he was a great
and good man. !
Bc it also said that he and h's
devoted wile have reared up one of
the best families of devoted upright
and christian young men and women
to be found anywhere.
During our several years sojourn
in this city we have not heard
naught against a single one that
would cause father and mother to
be ashamed. This in itself is re

Our New Linotype
With a good deal of satisfaction :
the editor of the Indicator announces
thc installation of a new Linotype.
This mechnical marvel qualifies us
to serve efficiently the large num
ber of persons who look to our pub
lication for enlightenment and en
tertainment and who patronize our
The rapidly increasing circulation
of The Indicator, together with our
desire to place at the command of
our advertisers and others the high
est grddc of 'typography, induced us
to secure a fine composing machine
for the quick and accurate and
pleasing presentation of the news of
the day, and the production of su- j
pcrior job work. :
Our new Linotype enables us to !
set by machine many forms of com
position that previously necessitated )
tedious work by hand. Our plant is j
now capable of turning out compo
sition consisting of correct type !
laces in many different S-ZJS, and !
the change from one size to another j
is made very quickly. At a high '
rate of speed the versatile operator S
--whose hand is made famous by '
the .Mergenthaler Linotype Company j
as "the hand that keeps the world
informed"--produces line after line
of the sort of composition desired. 1
This installation is a testimonial ?
to the prosperity of Columbia and I
vicinity. And that the good people
of the community are duly apprecia
tive of our efforts to serve them in
all departments of the printing
business is manifested by the
many compliments received from in
dividual patrons since the arrival of
I our new machine.
The accompnying illustration will
give our readers some idea of the
marvelous mechan.se of the Linotype,

assembled matrices (or little brass
molds) and lines of type cast
