COWARDLY ASSAULT CITIZEN
Without Pretext Other than
LAST SATURDAY NIGHT TWO OF
NASHVILLE'S ACCREDITED PO
LICEMEN, WITH TWO OUTSIDE
PALS, ASSAULT A WELL-KNOWN
CITIZEN OUT ON THE SAD ER
RAND TO GET ASSISTANCE TO
HELP WITH HIS DEAD WIFE.
On Inst Raturdav nteht two police
men and two civilians committed one
of the most, cowardly assaults ever
heard of in the history of Nashville
Mr. Frank Mills, who lives at 180fi Jeff
fcrson street, was out at a late hour
on a very sad mission. Mr. Mills'
wife d'ed about midnight, and as there
wpvp onlv a fpw friends present, he
was compelled to go out for assist
nnce. There was no one he could
send, all of the friends present being
ladles. Mr. Mills had been to the
nlice and was returning home. "When
he was near the Jubilee Hall yard
Tate on Jefferson street he saw four
men break across the street toward

the erent oss he hafl Slistained, and
was in no mood to receive another
great shock. When he saw the men
rushing toward him he called to them
to stop. He least suspected that two
of them w"ere officers, for they had
their coats off and were lounging
around on the curbstone. Their ap-
pearance led Mr. Mills to believe that
he was about to be attacked by a gang
of cutthroats. He had nothing to pro
tect himself with save- a little old
broken knife that would be harmless
to a three-year-old boy. On they came
rushing upon the man already
stridden, and now before he can ar
range to bury his dead wife he must
be possibly murdered himself. But
he kept cool. He called out to the in
tnulers: "Who are you?" and to his
neat surprise the response was, "We

when seen by a Globe representative.
The man was almost exhausted and
mortified beyond expression. He said

Mr. MiS intends to report the ca$

to the civil service commission, and
his friends have expressed a desire to
rally to his aid.
The camp meeting at 1318 North
Cherry street, two blocks above the
Bcuna Vista car line, grows better
and better each night. The audi-
ences increase in size every service
by different preachers.
The State of Tennessee may not be
contributing an equal share of the
school funds to the educating of the
Negro youth blessed with health,
strength and with good sight, but cer
tainly she has deported herself admir
ably in her care for the poor unfortu
nate blind children. The Colored De
partment of the Tennessee School for
the Blind located in South Nashville
on Tennessee street, is an example of
the care the thoueht and the affec
tions with which the state, through its
officers, is looking after these children.
Not much attention, however, is paid
uy rne parents oi sue a cmiaren, ana
especially has it been noted that few
of them are interested in those seem
insly neglected ones that nature has
tied to them by family connections.
The colored department of this school
has been established for more than a
quarter of a century. In fact, Mrs. S.
M. Lowe, the present principal, has
been at work in this department for
twenty-seven years. She has travelled
extensively. Hardly a summer passes
but that she spends it or a part of It
in different parts of the state, pre
sumably for rest, yet it is not known
that she ever ceased from her untiring
labors In the interest of these unfor-
innate little ones. At present she is
in the evtveme eastern portion of the
state looking for a little recreation
and at the same time thinking and
