STOP HATING UNJUSTLY. It is
with amused interest that I read
"Southerner's" article and the an
swers of condemnation he brought
about his head. I guess he opened
his eyes wide when he saw them.
Still, I think it is enlightment that he
needs, and not such severe censure,
such as given him by C. M. Maxson.
Remember, "Southerner" did not
. stop to think when he penned that
letter. It is written in an uncon
trollable hatred, and who knows but
that he was taught to hate the black
man since his infancy, as most south
erners are. He has not hurt Miss G.
H. any, because if she is a negro it is
right for her to defend her race, re
gardless of such insinuations, and if
she is white and feels that a word
from a white woman would aid the
negro much credit should be given
her for her courage in raising her
voice to what she thought was just
No sane, even-tempered white per
son will imagine for an instant that
her interest in the black race is caus
ed by a passion, such as "Southern
er" says will be believed of her. Real
ly, I have to laugh. And I'm sure Miss
G. EL must do the same. Sick minds
and angry minds express many uncalled-for
should remember that there has been
just as many horrible crimes com
mitted upon white women by white
men as by black men.
If black men covet and desire white
women they have more control of
themselves than they are given credit
for, as their crimes are comparatively
T wlilte people. I wish, Mr. Southern
er, you would stop hating unjustly,
as it does a lot or harm and no good.
CONCERNING RAIN. There Is an
old saying that when in the morning
a dew is on the grass there will be
no rain, but I take notice that it rains
most every day, whether it is due or
not K. C.
WHY IRON CHILLS AND WOOD
DOESN'T Is iron colder than wood?
f it isn't will you please tell me why
it seems to be colder? Maurice B.
If you place one hand on the iron
head of a hammer and one hand on
the wooden handle the iron will seem
to be colder than the wood. As a
matter of fact, they are the same
temperature unless one of them has
The reason that one seems colder
than the other is that both Iron and
wood are colder than your skin, and
"they both draw heat from your skin.
The iron takes it much more quickly
than the wood, so it seems to you
the iron is colder. It isn't really, but
it is a good conductor of heat, and
wood is not a good conductor of heat
This explains why marble seems cold
er than cotton, why lead seems cold
er than paper, and why there seems
to be a difference in temperature of
many other objects. Some draw the
heat from your skin more quickly
