A SHAME
It seems a shame to slaughter clothes
At the prices now "on sale."
But OVERSTOCK has got to go
For those who may avail.
The SUITS and COATS are going fast
To meet the great demand.
The price you pay takes them away;
We have the stock on hand.
The DRESSES, too, are moving out;
The HATS and SKIRTS as well.
The OVERSTOCK is on display
And prices make them sell.
The SALE is on for several days
To cut down our great stock.
The prices on our merchandise
Has made the people talk.

"I don't want any of this sympathy

the cards were stacked against me and
that's all there Is to it.

brother or sister to support her, I
wouldn't mind so much.
"But I haven't given up the fight by
a long way. The case will be taken to
the supreme court and my attorneys
state they will make every effort for
a new trial. I believe that I am a vic
tim of circumstances; that the com
munity is demanding some hangings
and that I happened to come along for
trial at the wrong time.
"Some people s^y a colored man is
yellow. If the worse comes there
won't be a man living that will be
able to say that this colored man
showed a yellow streak. I'll take my
medicine, If necessary, hoping all
along that I will get a new trial."
Powell has not yet been removed
to a separate cell. The death watch
will not be put on in his case until
after formal sentence Is pronounced
by Judge Dwyer.
