And now that the name and very life of colored men arc jeopardized by the word of anv white woman, the thinking white women should utter a protest so loud that the entire nation will hear and heed. As one writer states the case: "By the divine law of reaping as one sows, if the white woman is not moved to uproot the crimes done in her name, if ever the scales arc turned, God help her! God have mercy on her soul! The white women in America possess wonderful powers of organization. And wc believe if they could once be con vinced that the lawlessness of America is theirs, they would purpose in their hearts to remove the accursed lynching that is the chief source of racial an tagonism." The Advocate, Portland, Oregon, September 3, 1921. - . . . L t HON. THOMAS CAREY HON. THOMAS CAREY, PRESIDENT ! OF THE CHICAGO LIFE INSUR ANCE COMPANY AND CHAIRMAN OF THE CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE TO RAISE ONE HUNDRED THOU SAND DOLLARS FOR A GREATER FORT DEARBORN HOSPITAL AND TRAINING SCHOOL FOR COLORED NURSES, ISSUES THE FOLLOWING APPEAL TO THE COLORED CITI ZENS OF CHICAGO- CHICAGO, SEPTEMBER 8, 1921 I wish to state that a huhiIkt of lead ing citizens called urnm me to accept the General Chairmanship of the Fort Dearborn Hospital and Training Sehool for Nurses in their fund-raising cam paign for $100,000. I hesitated for sometime, owing to the many business interests with which I am connected, that requires niy personal attention, 1 ' ' " li"fllWll 'Willi Mllll-ll and I was loath to accept the hnor at thi time, but after listening to their iuo:4 worthy and human appeal, I in- estimated the institution and the men who were directors and advisory mem bers of the board, and found them ' vomp of the prominent business men n -iding in the immediate community, H whom the management could safely be entrusted for the benefit of the nas-is. second to none, and that the Fort Dearborn Hospital and Training School for Nur.es, being a real public institution, controlled by public spirit ed men for the public god, with a President of the Chicago National Life Insurance Company, Appeals to the Colored Citizens of Chicago to Rally to the Support of the Fort Dearborn Hospital and Training School for Colored Nurses. "AGAINST CATHOLICS, JEWS AND NEGROES." 13 ,fiaat it can prevail. tt J Wonieii of America nw a K teftnfle to the n,n f r does not record a Bingle Wc have never thought seriously that the Ku Klux Klan would ever really amount to anything except a nuisance and a menace to Colored peo ple in the rural unprotected sections. That was when we had concluded that the Klan only meant to "keep the Ne gro in his place." . TW cinro it has leaked out that the Ku Klnx Klan is against the "Catho lics, Jews and Negroes" we know it is "Good Night, Ku Klar." The Colored Brother is the weakest of the trio, we admit. And we seri ously doubt if he meant to take any Ku Klux foolishness without giving an "eye for an eye." But with the other two elements'of the nation's popula tiontwo of its strongest elements, the Jew and the Catholic to have common cause with him, the Colored Brother need bother no longer. That is to say, tit is only a matter-of time now and the Kn Klux Klan will go back to the grave from which it eprung "unwept, nnhonorcd and unsung" But while we are passing, wo might point out the irony of this thing: the Klan calls itself 100 per cent American and says : !,.-. ;. tn crash all nn-Amencans. What a joke when it announces as the subjects of its persecution "The Catho lic, the Jew and the negro- i" ---most tmly 100 per cent Americans m the nation. The News, Louisville, -y., Sept. 3, 1921.

Mr. and Mrs. Walter Thompson, of New York City, arc spending their va cation at the home of the sisters of Mrs. Thompson, Miss Nellie Callaway, Madame M. Callaway Byron, 3300 Rhodes avenue. Mrs. Thompson is the most noted or celebrated drummer in the world, having traveled all over Enrope and this country while plying her art, and Mr. Thompson has for some time been one of the stars of the well known 'LaFayette players. A woman, who was too economical to subscribe for her home paper sent her little son to borrow a copy from her neighbor. In his haste the boy ran over a four-dollar stand of bees, and in ten minutes looked like a warty summer squash. His cries reached his father, who ran to his assistance, and failing to notice a barbed wire fence, ran into it, breaking it down, cutting a handful of flesh from his anatomy and raining a five-dollar pair of pants. The old cow took advantage of the gap in the fence and get into the corn field and killed herself eating corn. Hearing the racket, the mother ran. upsetting a four-gallon churn of rich cream into a basket of kittens, drown ing the whole litter. la her hurry she dropped and broke, past all hope of mending, a twenty-five dollar set of false teeth. The baby, left alonv, crawled through the spilled cream and into the parlor, ruin ing a twenty-dollar carpet. Dur ing the excitement the eldest daughter ran away with the hired man, the dog broke up eleven setting hens and the calf got out and chewed the tails off of four fine shirts. All to save a meas ly dollar. Exchange.
