Capt. D. T. Bra iham, which building I

purposes and later used for.day school
purposes until atout three years a.ro.
After the dispensary was votea out the
finances being greatly reduced, and
scarcely enough pupils in attendance
for it to be called aschool, t.he trustees
temporarily closed-.. In the meantime
Capt. Bradham had sold the laud on
which the buildingi stood to William
Hcdge, colored. I directed that Hodge's
written consent ie obtained for this
temporary closioag but it seems it was
not done, and shortdy afterwards he laid
claim to the building and forbade any
The trustees and myself took the mat
ter up with Hodze, and several confer
ecces were had relative to the buildine.
Capt. Brad han used his good influences
with Hodge and he finally consented
that they might have tWhe house i they

Real Angel of Death.
Most of us are familiar with the
beautiful and artistic conception of
French wherein a young sculptor who
is plying his magic chisel upon a block
of stone and summoning from the
snowy depths of the marble the dream
race of his soul's ideal is gently touch
ed by the wistful eyed angel of death
ind the skillful arm forever stayed.
The whole creation is marvelously
beautiful, and the world. Is better for
ts birth. Nevertheless it is allegorical
md misleading. The real angel of
leath in the case of the thin faced
sculptor was not a sad visaged maiden
)f classical profile. In all probability
t was a minute, rodlike organism float
ng amid motes of dust and known to
