Miss Hallle Dickerson departed this
fe at her home 77 East EleMh
street, April 11. after a lineerinz ill
ness of several months. She bore her
sickness with patience and almost to
the last day of her life she was cheer
ful and hopeful of regaining her
strength and mingling with her
friends again. She was devoted to
her parents and they were equally de-
oted to her. Last fall her mother
carried her to Florida, thinking that
the warm climate would prove bene
ficial, but finding no relief, she soon
returned home. She was a young
lady of unusual attractiveness and
high ideals. After finishing from the
Columbia public school she went to
uskegee.Ala.,and took a professional
course in trained sick nursing. She
finished with honors, and her future
seemed bright for a few short years.
Her funeral was preached at Bethel
A. M. E. Church, of which she was a
member, by Kev. T. w. Hampton, her
pastor. The following young ladies
acted as honorary pallbearers: Misses
Pauline Green, Maggie Kelly, Mag
nolia Daniel, Zellia Perry. Lula Amos
and Bertha Guinn.

Miss Emma L. C. Stone, the only
young lady that graduated from the
Pharmaceutical Department on March
29, was the youngest student that
ever graduated from Mtharry Medi
cal College. Though young, she is
bright and amiable and possesses al
qualities of a noble and great woman
It will be remembered that she passed
the state board for assistant pharma
cist last January. Being the
only lady in the class, Miss
Stone before leaving the platform,
was offered a position by Mr. Wash
ington to take charge of the Tuskegee
Pharmacy, which she had to decline
because she intended to practice with

Hathaway is also the possessor of the

have this shown in the art division of
the Negro Exhibit.
These here folks that go a-fishin' In

With their store-bought pole an'

Make us old-time fellers tired as we
see them passin' by.
An' we think about the old times when
we used to fish, an' sigh.
An' we think of how we'd march off
with a cane long, dry an' straight,
With spirits full of cheerfulness, a tin
can full o bait;
Then we'd sit upon the creek bank,
an' we'd fish the long day through,
At some dark an' shady hole, where
lish would bite an' skeeters, too.
How we cussed the meddlin' crawfish
an' the turtle that we caught,
Or the log we hung our hook into jest
when we hadn't ought:
When we'd ketch one extry heavy,
how our poles an' hearts would
When he'd drop back in the water

But I can't come on the new-style
stuff the fellers has to-day.
An' their wooden bait an' feathers

All the world's growin' artificial

But I'm fer the old-time doin's an' the

JAMESTOWN EXPOSITION NOTES
The Jamestown Exnosition is a com
prehensive historical study in black
and white of the past three hundred
years or. American achievement.
The musical exhibit, which will be
quite an elaborate collection of the
productions, vocal and instrumental
of the colored composers of the coun
try, has been placed in charee of Mr
Clarence Cameron White, the eminent
violinist of Washington, D. C. Musi
cal instruments made by Negroes wil
be displayed and frequent recitals
using the compositions of Negroes ex
clusively, will be glvea.
Newport News is a prttty little city
and its people are hospitable to the
last degree. It is in close proximity
to the exposition grounds and many
will doubtless make it the base of
their operations during their sojourn
in the Tidewater section. The ferry
company lias agieed to furnish clean
comfortable boats, on which there
will be no discrimination between col
oi ed and white passengers. The trip
across Hampton Roads is a delight
The amusement concession has been
granted to Wetmore in Jackson, and
on a given number of evenings each
week the "top-notch" dramatic, lyric
and comedy specialists of the race wil
be presented under their direction
Mr. Wetmore's extensive acquaintance
with the "stars" of the theatrical firm'
anient, and acknowledged taste as a
purveyor of entertainments that ap
peal to refined audiences, are assur
ances that there will ba no dearth o
enjoyable attractions In the magnifi
cent auditorium of the Negro building
A permanent orchestra and grand
chorus organized and led bv a skilled
musician, will be among the artistic
features of the exposition season.
The Negro Exhibit Is doing good In
more than one direction it is opening
the door of opportunity to many
phases of Negro endeavor by furnish
ing lucrative employment to a smal
army of the intelligent, skilled and in
dustrious men and women of the race
Clerks, stenographers, carpenters
builders, architects, electricians
printers, trained writers, experienced
THE HUSBAND, NOT A NEGRO.
The cat, as the old saying goes, ever
now and then "hops out of the wal
let," that is, the truth of some das
tardly crime committed ty the "other
fellow," but charged up to some Ne
gro, any Negro, who may happen
along handily, comes to the surface
For every one that crops out discover
ing the real perpetrator, ninety-nine
will remain undiscovered till the
Saturday, April, 13, Mrs. T. T. Tis
sue (white), of Kirbyville, Texas,
went fishing with her husband, by
whom she was shot. Thinking he had
killed her, he smeared himself with
her blood and then with a murderous
lie in his mouth, that a Negro with
whom he had grappled committed the
crime, he went forth to circulate that
lie, feeling sure that some Negro
would pay the penalty.
This man had premeditated and de
liberately planned the murder of his
wife at the expense of the life of some
Negro, who would surely have met a
horrible, ignominious death, had not
God thwarted the plan3 of the infa
mous scoundrel and murderer, lodging
his own brute-crime upon his own
worthless head. The villaia had not
done his bloody work as thoroughly
as he thought, or the world would
have been shocked by the flaming
headlines in every Texas paper "A
Burly Negro Brute Lynched for the
Murder of Mrs. T. T. Tissue. He
Confessed His Crime. The Mob Wa3
an Orderly One and did its Work
Quietly and Quickly and Dispersed to
Their Homes." Some would have put
it possibly in words to this effect:
"Confessed His Crime and the Eiv
raged Populace Strung up the Black
Brute and Riddled His Body with
uullets. The Mob Was Composed of
the Best Citizens."
Such would have been the gross
misrepresentation, heading as false an
account of the Negro's crime, had not
Heaven or Fate decreed otherwise.
Mrs. Tissue survived the murder
ous attack of her husband (the Cauca
sian Negro) and signed a sworn
statement that it was he and not a
Negro that tried to kill her.
It is so easy to fasten any crime on
the Negro, owing to overbearing
prejudice that will not allow trial, that
every scoundrel who wishes to com
mit some kind of capital crime plans
It to fall on the Negro.
Texas soldiers are now guarding
the husband of Mrs. Tissue, and not a
Negro, who would have been dead
long ago, as the soldiers could not
have been gotten there In time.
