Mr. Editer: I am mighty surprised
t that you never had a thing in yore
paper about-the concert at O'Neall St.
Metherdist church last Sat. nite. It
wuz won of the biggest tretes we
ever had, an wuz jest the out come
of havin a mill president with a hart
big as the mill he presides over.
Mr. Zach is allers a studyin up
sumthin fur the benefit an plezure nf
West End peepil, an he ordered a hi
class Concert Band frum Columby,
which wuz made up of three hily
educated blind men an their manager.
They shore wuz all good singers an
musicianers, an intertaned us with
the very best of clasical music. Mr.
J. M. Davis sed they wuz "rale ar
tists," but I never seen any of their
picters, an I don't see how a blind
man can paint no how. They sung
sum mighty funny songs, an won in
pertickler, where a ole man an wo
man wuz a goin to celebrate their
K iftieth weddin annerversy, keeps
ringin in mi hed. The chorus started
"Git yore ole gray bonnet with the
blue ribbins on it
While I hitch old Dobbin to the shay,"
an I tell you it wuz shore fine. They
had a song about niggers stealin
chickens, and won of em wood cackle
fur all the world like a old domineck
er rooster, while the others wuz a
singing. Oh, it wuz funny an god. They
had sum little toy horns an mimick
ed West End band a playin Red Wing,
an peepil like to a kilt theirselves
a laffin. Mr. Wherry (West End band
master) looked like thirty cents an
sum of the other boys looked still
I thought shore you wood a had a
reporter over thare, or that sum of
them good Metherdists wood a seen
atter it, or I'd a tuck mi pencil an
paper along an done it miself. I'm
allers wonderin if Mr. Zach has any
idee how much we all apprashate his
There's a heap of things happenin
on this side of the Rale Rode that
ort to git in yore paper an don't.
My hel:th haint been no account an
I haint worked none in three months,
but I tuck a agency fur a a,rtickle an
went to N. C. about three weeks ago,
an made enuff to pay my expenses
while I wuz gone, an had a swell time
besides. Mi helth. improved sum while
I wuz gone too, an if Jeems hadn't
a kept ritin aboult bein so lonesum
I'd a stade longer then too w(eeks.
It's a mighty long ride frum Clin
ton to Wadesboro, an if thare hadn't
a been a preacher on the trane that
node me, I spect I'd a passed the time
off by playing widder agin, an catchim
me a bo. There wuz a drummer on
thare that looked intrestin. When we
stopped at Chester fur the trane to
rest a few minites, a little nigger
come in a sellin papers. That drum
mer tuck a seegar outen his pocket
an sorter held it out, an when that
little nigger cum along he sed:
"Say, coon, do you smoke?" The
smiles broke out over that little nig
gers face same as measles an he roll
ed his ize toerds that seegar with a
kind of a glory-halleluyer look, an an
sered emfatic like:
"Yessur, boss, I shore does!" Then
that drummer stuck the seegar back
into his pocket an anserad mighty
"Better quit it-it's a mighty bad
habit" An the disappinted coon pass
ed on with his lips curled tuther way,
while every body but me laffed fit to
kill. I wuz sorry fur the little feller.
I stade mitey ni a week in Wades
boro, where I shore had a fine time.
Thare is a site of work goin on there.
I reckin thare wuz mighty ni three
hundred men a workin the street,
cementin, gradin an pavib. Thare
wuz lots of curis mersheens ever
hare. and it wuz dangeris to walk
around. Then thare wuz a lot of fel
lers a c11min hi poles an stretchin
close lines mighty ni all over town, an
I spected ever time I past won of
them poles that a feller wood cumt
a tumblini down on to me an smasa
me fiat a.s a flitter. But law sakes'
thema boys cud climb strate up them
poles same as flize and it never both
ered them a bit.
I stade in Monroe severil days at
the home of Cousin .Jack Greene.
While I wuz thare I met preacher
Fullenwider's pa, an he shore is a
fine lookin jolly ole gentlemtai. He's
got a bewtifuli home, too.
Cusin .hek is a widder an rents
is house to Mrs. Griffin. an she keeps
b e somi boarders, an Jack has
1 wat to the opery show~ to ee
Human Harts played. In course Jacl
carried us; he don't mind spendix
money, cawse he makes a lot of it ai
haint got nobody but won boy, an he'1
z at skule. Well, that play-if i
wuz a play-beat anything I eve
seen. But I tell you what it looke
like the rale thing to me. I'll tel
you a little sketch of it.
Tom Logan wuz the hero, an wuz
blacksmith-the handsomest an fines
fookin specimen of manhood I eve
seen (Jeem's excepted of corse!) witl
a hart of pure gold, and hi ideals ai
lofty notions of honer, truth an integ
rity. He loved an marrid a orful pur
ty woman, an trusted her implicitly
She had been kinder raised up oi
flattery, I think, an her nater wu:
pizened bi it, jest same as a body cai
gft pizened on drugs an sich like til
thay can't do without em.
Well, this woman soon got tired 0
honest Tom an sich a quiet, eas:
life, an when a polished, slick tongue(
villun come along an told her shi

bewty as hern wuz ment to adorn ,
home of wealth an luxury-why, thi
little wretch jest swallred it all
down an injoyed it same as a bab:
with a nursin bottle, an it wern't lonj
till she wuz plum reddy to runawa:
with him an leve her husband ai
Thay wuz sorter skeered of Ton

swore that Tom done it an she seei
him do it, an the pore feller wuz sen
to the prison fur life, an the womai
went an tuck up with that scoundral
Sumtimes she wood -actilly dress up ii
her finest duds, an go to the jail t<
see her deserted husban4 an sh(
wood laff an make fun of him an hii
But them stripes couldn't hide thi
true worth of Tom Logan; if any
thing. thay made his virtues shin
still brighter. The grand nobility o
his great soul sh'one through it all
dazling as the sun, an even in pris
on he commanded unbounded respec
Atter a while that villin got to beih
mighty cruel to the woman who ha<
mortgaged her sole to the devil fu
his sake. Jest like a man-he didn'
love her no longer then he had rea
sin to respect her. He wuz orfu
mean to the little gal, too, which the:
had got away from Tom's mother
Sumtimes when that villin wood gi

I'd grab mi umbrel and start in to giva
him a thrashin, but Cousin Jack woof
stop me an say:
"Stop. Cousin Becky, don't furgi
that this is jest a play." an I'd se
down, but mighty onwillin. I tell yol
it didn't look like no play to me-bu
the tale gingerwine thing.
Well, atter while-in about fora
year, the governor set Tom Loga:
free. An law sakes! I never seen an;
body as happy as he wuz, when tha:
brung that pardon dockament to th
prison an gi 'e it to him. He jes
