Second Avenue. I KILLED BY AN OFFICER. UNKNOWN NEGRO AT THE MORGUE Commanded to Surrender the Negro Drew a Knife and Attempted to Cut the Officer. An unknown negro Is lying on the cool ing boards at the Warner & Smiley com. pany undertaking establishment. He was killed last night by Deputy Sheriff Oscar Jones. The shooting occurred about 8 o’clock near the Alabama Great Southern yards, on Twenty-sixth street. Deputy Sheriff Jones was in that vicinity in quest of an other negro for whom he had a warrant. The railroad officials had requested the county officers to keep an eye on their coal cars when passing them at night. Officer Jones saw the negro on a coal car, and called to him to submit to arrest. Instead of heeding the command, the negro Jumped from the car and tried to get away with a basket full of coal. The deputy followed, and caught up with the negro after he had gone a short dis tance. The fugitive, It is said, made a savage assault on the officer with a knife, inflicting a gash on his hand and cutting his overcoat in several places. Deputy Jones is much smaller in stat ue than the negro, and says he could see the knife flashing dangerously near his head and throat, and, thinking that his life was in danger, he fired a shot at his assailant’s face. The ball struck the negro full in the forehead, and he dropped to the ground a corpse. He had • his hand In the officer's collar when he received the fatal bullet. His fingers did r.ot relax their grasp, and the determined little officer was snatched to the ground with the dead prisoner. Deputy Sheriff Jones notified the "War ner & Smiley company of the shooting, .and returned to the county Jail, where he gave himself up to Warden Will Reeves. The body of the dead negro was viewed at the morgue last night by a large num ber of people, but none of them recog nized him.

BLACH & SONS’ Manufacturers’ Sale HE USED HIS RAZOR, Eugene Walker Badly Stabbed by Another Negro Who Makes Good His Escape. Eugene Walker was badly cut last night about 8 o’clock on Avenue B and Twentieth street by an unknown man. Both parties were negroes. Walker was seen by a State Herald re porter at the city hospital, where Dr. Gibson dressed his bounds. He said he had just entered the door of a fruit stand adjoining a place known as "Fer guson’s dive,” when some one dealt him a heavy blow from behind. Before he could rise he says a light ginger-cake negro fell upqn him and cut him with a razor in several places on the head and body. Walker yelled for help, and two negroes ran out of the saloon and came to his assistance. The other negro ran to the door and,raising his razor high in the air, cursed his partners and dared them to follow him. He escaped, and has not been captured so far. Walker has been an inmate of the prison for several months, and was re leased only a short time since. He Is considered a dangerous character. When asked by the reporter if he himself was not a right bad negro, Walker said: "I ain’t near as bad as the nigger that cut me. He is a bad nigger. And I tell you, boss, I didn’t feel good but one time dur ing the attack, and that was when that nigger was getting oft of me with his razor.” _-_ SOUTHERN RAILWAY.

IR ML WORLD (All items of social interest will be gladly ! noted in these columns if sent to Mrs. George C. Ball, Nineteenth street, between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, South High lands. Telephone 988.) Thanksgiving Day is with us once again! According to presidential and gubernatorial proclamations we are called upon once more to offer public thanks for the manifold blessings which have been bestowed upon us by a gra cious providence. And it is mete and right so to do. During the past twelve months—twelve months that held their sorrows and disappointments for many a human heart, as has been the case with all the months in all the calendars of the ages—there have come mercies without number to each one of us. Even if we tried you and I could not count the good things which have come Into our lives, with barely a consciousness on our part of their coming. Many a blessing has "slipped through the gates of Heaven" into our hearts and homes as noiselessly as the falling snowflake. Now that a year since last Thanksgiving has passed into the records of eternity who can say v/e are not better off and happier than we were twelve months ago. The financial 'depression, with its heavy burdens, is quietly tilting about the horison. where there are rays of prismatic glulky which foretell the perfect day to come. This great nation of ours is steadily growing in power among the other nations of the globe, and human freedom Is making constant strides towards a universal ful fillment.* Through those tremendous in strumentalities, almost divine in their appointment and service—the- pulpit, the press and the schools—the human race is reaching upward. Heavenward, and con stantly climbing closer to God. Each year marks the bringing into closer re lationship the peoples of the earth; each year carries the gospel of Christ into more hearts and homes. That there have come into tvery soul during the past year disappointments dire and -dark you and I well know; but we also, know that sorrow and disappointment bring into every life their twin angels, hope and faith, provided our hearts are true and right and wo trust in the great God who doeth all things well. So on bended knee this beautiful autumn day we shall thank our creator for the countless mer cies with which he has crowned our lives and filled our homes. ft ft ft And while we send upward, through the blue of autumn skies, the praise of grateful hearts this Thanksgiving Day let us not forget those upon whom the burdens of life press weightily and those homes where want and hunger stalk un bidden and undefied.. Heaven is as close to us as we care to make it, my friends, and such a day as this brings its portals to our very doors. It is our own fault and because of our own blindness if our eyes perceive not the gate, behind which God and His angels stand. * * * The noble women of the United Char ities will gladly_njceive and distribute today all contributions sent to their rooms, 22 and 23 Thompson building.
