Inquire iiito the new insurance company now being orga
nized and letsl pull together to the goal of success.
Don't wonder at "The Human Knocker" article which ap
peared in Thel Indicator last week if the "cap doesn't fit" you
just come togiether and lets "pull and push." .
OUR NEW ENTERPRISES.
Despite the fact that Columbia is now passing through a
crisis the likej of which it has never witnessed before, new enter
prises are springing up here and there and our peopte are gradu
ally taking toj them.
The Victory Savings Bank and The Industrial Building and
Loan Association are enjoying a season of prosperity. And they
are filling a dijre need among our people.
The thirdj cf importance is another insurance company now
in process of brganizution which it is hoped will spread through
out the entire! state. The promoters of this are Mr. I. J. Joseph,
Lawyer N. J.jFrederiek, Mr. G. L. Floyd, Mr. G. Lee Ratliff,
and others. We are looking forward for as great success in this
organization in the two proceeding it. Our people need more
employment ajnd they can only get it through our own enter
prises. Lets jpull and stop knocking.
NEGROES, THE OBJECT OF PREY.
From thej earliest days of slavery to the present the Negro
race has beenjthe object of prey for other people,-the root doc
tor, fortune taller and all other class of beats on the face of the
And even at tjhis late day a supposed medicine concern in Atlanta
advertises forj agents to sell medicine to "colored people". It re
quires no experience." The following want ad. appeared in last
"Agents-j-Sell medicine to colored people. It requires no
experience. ?Vrite to day for full particulars. Four Seasons
Medicine Company, Atlanta, Ga."
The Indicator would admonish its readers to stop buying this
"cure all kindj of diseases medicine." We understand that there
are certain doctors ( ?) in Columbia right now representing an
Atlanta firm jselling medicine that cures every mentionable ail
ment. Theyj are here making a house to house canvass selling
seen these doctors ( ?) but we have heard much of their house
to house canvass and carrying big rolls of greenback collected J
through this jscheme. We are at a loss to understand how it is
that regular practicing physicians can afford to suspend the prac
tice of medicine to sell a patent medicine.. They go through a
form of examination with those of varied ailments and sell the
self same patent meicine for the thousand and one diseases.
Some how, vire are not so wise as to believe in these transient
physicians ( ?) and would advise our people to go slow in buying
their medicine-the , self-same medicine that they sell every
patient. Th?se might be representatives of the Atlanta firm
which carried the above ad in The State last Sunday.
We would advise our readers to use our own physicians-Co
lumbia has tjhem and to spare.
Now is ?the time for us to show to these spontaneous Medi
cine companies and their representatives that it takes more than
experience lio sell us medicine or a general mixture of the most
common ingredients that cure nothing.
Let a ?regular practicing physician prescribe for your ails
and close ycjur door in the faces of those who "need no experience
to sell you"!.

Every conductor that worked
this line declared that it was the
best paying line of the system,
and yet, without any considera
tion because the patrons were
Negroes, the tracts were moved.
Naturally they expected the
j Negroes to walk three more
j blocks to catch the same car
I without a break or complaint
j but it is a fact that the majority
oi these people walked the re
mainder of the blocks while oft
time? the empty "cars would
pass them by. Now that the;
I cars are at a complete stand
still, these people are rejoicing;
and hoping that unless better
consideration be given themi
that they will rust out rather
than wear out.
She Finished Her Course.
The passing away of the
editor's wife Thursday night,
February 23rd, has made mor?
evident than ever before thb
fact that a truer woman nevejr
lived, and that a better woman
must yet be born. As her
husband, the thirteen years of
our happy union, we knew her
greatness. But so unassuming
was she and so little ambition
did she possess to forge her
way to the front ranks for
popularity / in high positions
and the social world, that we
did not once think that, that
host of friends who so willing
ly and anxiously attended bei
during 1er illness and thronged
the Ichirch beyond seating ca
pacity to pay her their lasl
tribute of respect, bringing a
veritable mound of the mosi
beautiful , lovely and costly
floral tributes, saw in her as
we did, such beautiful traits
and noble character. She
simply lived the Ufe and went
about doing good. And in this
way sh 3 touched the lives of
hundreds and unconsciously
impressed them as she did us
of her greatness and worth.
Those j who knew her loved
her,-tiley ' couldn't do other
wise. Those who did not love
her die n't know the charac
White we feel that our loss is
ineparable, we still have an un
faltering trust in Him who
came t> heal the broken heart
ed and to .proclaim liberty to
the weary captives. Her pass
ings away was not by mistake;
for Go i is too wise to make
mistakes. She had simply
finished her course; for thf,
way st e went about her affairs
in her last days now come to us
as an evidence that she was
finishing up her work before
He took unto Himself one of
His most precious jewels.
