Wc arc thinking of the names of
some of the weekly newspapers pub
lished in this city. There is the
"Whip"; the very name carries us
back to the dear dead days of child
hood "when such a thing was possible.
We cannot for anything account for
a newspaper calling itself a whip.
Then there is the Enterprise; well
what doesjt mean? Enterprise? We
cannot fathom it Then there is the
Big Chicago Defender. We ran see
a- little something in a paper that
wants to defend something, or some
body, may be a race. Then we get
to The Broad Ax. 'We are absolutely
at sea unless with its sharp edge it
intends to cut so fine that truth will
fall to one side, while error falls on
the other With the Whip to whip
people, 'the Enterprise to start some
thing, the Defender to protect us and
The Broad Ax to cut up, or down, or
through things, the race b in a -fair
way towards its great goal.

Later it was out of sight, no delight,
Firing was good for him.
Is spite work a symptom of being
luny?- We heard tell of a lady who
fired her husband, sued him for ali
mony, lost her case, got mad, re
gretted herself nearly to death.
Though of all of the crazy-talk peo
ple would tell her when she didn't
have sense enough to turn a deaf ear,
then in the long stretch of years when
the husband she fired became wealthy,
it is said she would get mad and
weep whenever she-reviewed her sad
mistakes. If people listen for trash
even about themselves they are very
likely to hear it, for people will talk

Chambermaid aristocracy will cut

like a man when a mouse, is in the
house? Is i right to sit down, and let
the women stand up for her coun
trymen? Vhy is there a race prob
lem? Who are the white folk? What
is a rent hog? Will your Uncle Sam
fight the little brown men? And last,
but not least, when will x President
Harding starUto giving the race posi

serves, and then begin to show, the
South that this is not especially a
white man's country?
Why, Yes; Why, Bless 'Em?
If women are so sweet why do
they use so many things to supply
their deficiency? Powder-and puff are
