SOME TEXAS TOWNS A. A A A A A. A A A Wichita Falls, Feb. 8. Sunday was another one of those Ideal church going days, and good services were reported from all churches. Rev. R. Wells, P. E. of the -Quannah Dis trict worshpped at Anderson Chapel. Rev. Curry preached at St. John Baptist Church. Miss Myrtle 'John son spent Sunday in Henrietta. Prot H. D. Robinson spent the week-end In Abilene.- Rev. 10. D. Bonner of Anderson Chapel A. M. E. Church has launched a 5,000 rally. Watch us raise it. The U. and I. Club en tertained Jast Thursday evening as the home oi' Mr. J. Norwood on Pecan street. Floyd Ray, who is charged with an attempt of criminal assault on a 13 year-old white girl was sen tenced to bang here last week in the District court. Young Ray is now about the age he should be finishing a High School course, but ' instead he a criminal of the worst kind and sentenced to hang. We do not know the boy, but we feel that his lamentable predicament, and his ultimate fate is chargable to his parents. Women who are not capa ble of rearing children properly, to my mind, would commit no sin to go through life without them. And too, 1 think that civic clubs amon our women should see to it that every boy of scholastic age should either go to school or to the re formatory. N6 boy that is brought up without education, and without knowledge of church and Sunday School, could be expected to be other than "Criminalistic." Now let's cease to be Abraham's, furnishing human sacrifices for the burnt offerings of the other fellow. The Christians and the better element of our race, shares equal responsibility for crimes com- mitted in their immediate vicinity , when they offer nothing as a cor- , roctive to the criminal before he commits his crime. Prof. C. C. Trimble, who has been spending a three weeks vacation here at his home, will leave February 6th for Louisville, Ky., where he has bis office and headquarters as Na tional Supervisor of the American Woodmen. All Wichita joins me in saying: Prof. Trimble, we were glad to have you come; regret' to see you loave, and hope for your early return. Last Friday night in the basement of St. John Baptist Church, the Brave boys of Trimble K. of P. Lodge No. 272, entertained the social elects of Wichita Falls with a public instal lation and banquet. The generous and hospitable spirit which character A ized the brave boys of Trimble Lodge, in their public functions, 4s too well known to warrant comment. But it would be an Injustice to society to not mention this festivity. We begin by saying that Knlgkh Walter Pointer was chairman of the Committee on Arrangements, and it is needless to say that he discharged his duties. For when one entered the door one's optics were caught by the artistic arrangement of the tables; and the profusion of national and fraternal buntings which were artistically draped around the windows, and around the walls, and on the tables. Then when one- approached nearer the tables, one's olfactory nerves were excited when one inhaled the fragrance of beautiful ferns, ( palms and cut flowers; and Oh my! just the sight of those delicious comes tibles set the inner-man awry. The feature of the evening was an address by Prof. C. C. Trimble for whom this lodge was named. Prof.- Trimble told in glowing terms and command ing eloquence the historj of "Damon and Pythias." Some of the old vet eran Knights looked on with amaze ' A.and wonderment, when Prof. Trimble t unearthed many hidden facts rei ative to Pythlanism. Messrs Lawler Smith and A. Byrd, Rev. McPhersoti and Dr. J. T .Welch, also made brief remarks. Since In the course of human events It is always possible and equally probable that any speech of a public speaker may be his last. we herewith chronicle the last words of Prof. Trimble said to Trimble K. of P. Lodge and the citizens of Wichita. (That Is if he should never return) Chancellor Commanded, Sir Knights, -Ladles and Gentlemen: I must now close, should it be mine to pass from this way 'ere I see you again, and should you Journey to the spot- in some city of the dead - which marks the final resting place of your friend and brother, C. C. Trimble. - and should you through curiosity or fraternal care, or Christian love ex hume my body, and cut out my heart you will find atamrnd indelibly upon It these1 words: "I bled for My Race," for I love you-Jod knows tI love you I thank you.
