A day spent in Birmingham would
convince any skeptic of the wonderful
nogress our people have made. The
mines and furnaces which have made
the city noted, are worked by colored
men. The firemen on all railroads, aft
er leaving Nashville, are colored, and

of great value. The Penny iSavines
Bank owns its own building, a three-
story brown stone front, with offices
above. They have ten employees,
such as president, cashier, teller, sten
ographer, clerks, etc. They did a busi

of great activity, and his company has

Dr. A. M. Brown is one of the most
affable gentlemen of the city. His

most elegant style, with all the mod

buggy, with his horse, Fox, moves
among his numerous patients at light
ning speed. He is holding all he has
and getting more and now already
counts his possessions by the scores.

shows they have been able to conduct
a satisfactory business both to the
people and themselves.
