Character Sketch of the Negro of
A Today.
B KV. IBENAKUS TROUT.
A few years ago, when I was
-ctorofthc beautiful village of
[. j„ North Mississippi, I hail for
the Rectory servant, “Mammy
Kilts." Mammy was a brownish
black in color, and, ns the local
darkies termed it, “stiingy neck
c(j ” but despite her defects
Mammy Kitta was a very accep
table servant and extremely neat
about her personal appearance.
kj(, e was never seen without a
brilliant rod bandanna handker
chief tied neatly over her head,
„ n d ooe of similar hue neatly
pinned ‘about her neck and shoul
ders, except on Sundays. Then
the “wool twists" on her head
were unwound and combed out
with great care, and a wreath of
fluffy Siifahair material was gath
ered into great soft mounds on
each side of her rather severe
forehead. For this, and for this
on |y, was the head-kerchief dis
carded.
Though her color would havcjn
negro social ethics classed h'er
below the mulatto, yet her tidi
ness and general neatness, which
the negro breast holds over in
awe, and which, by the way. was
the chief reason for her being re
tained as a “house nigger” in
alavo days,—and, he it known,
that ‘ house nigger” had no deal
ings with “fiel* ban’s,” so far
were they removed from each
other,--so her tidiness and neat
ness, coupled with the fact that
she had been in the past a “house
nigger,” and hence of “do quali
ty,’’ and the fact that she was ut
present “connected witli the Rec
tory, ’’ had much to do with Mam
my Kitta’s social position. Then,
too, Mammy Ritta was feared.
She was an Episcopalian, which
was a thing but vaguely under-
stood among tho town darkies,
bulge far as understood was re
garded us a sort of religious ma
sonry that could exist only among
certain minds capable of reading
those strange mysteries, and be
longing peculiarly to “do quality
whi’ fokes,” who were deemed but
as so many Dives here, and who
should plead to Lazarus later.
Yet,notwithstanding the aloof
ness of Mammy liitta, the negroes
were proud of her acquaintance
and hung with great earnestness
upon her words when she deigned
to play ofacle.
I' •
And Mammy Kitta was a great
stickler for tho old school etiquet
te and a proud defender of “de
whi’ fokes’ ’’ rights in the matter
of politeness. Did an unfortu
nate maiden venture upon tho
front porch and ring the bell to
ask “ef dey wanter buy enny
aigs”—as only the unsuspecting
from the rural districts over dared
do—Mammy Kitta would burst
forth into an indignant torrent of
words ns soon us she flung open
the door. “ Well 1 Well 11 Weill!!
is 1 done lib ter see dis? Niggahs
jister walkin' up er-ringin’ de
whi’ fokes’ boll same ez de quali
ty. Huhl iMI touch you your
manners, head mo? You jiat put
you foot in daf paff en tafc’ you’
sef eroun dat house laK you had
sum razin, you heah? En den
when yuh gits dar, doan slan’ er
squallin’ erbout laker guinea hen
or put-rackin en put-rackin put
rackin ’bout dem aigs. xuh
heah? Jes curtsy en mak’ yuh
mannahs lik’ dis (acurtesy) when
you see Missis en say, ‘Scuzen
me, young Mjstuss, en duz you all
-want enny aigs, ma’am?’ ”
And so Mammy Kitta was quite
a paragon of wisdom, both ethi
cal and theological, to her kind.

Wo had adopted tho custom in
tiio parish of tolling the church
bell upon Good Friday at noon,
and this great fast day coming al
ways during the garden planting
season,the surrounding “patches’*
were always full of hands planting
*nd breaking ground. Upon the
first of these Good Friday ser
vices, an old darkey called Unc’l
Kobert was in a neighboring gard
-6,1 fronting the Rectory back-
P°roh,bui>y at work, when “bong”
went tho bell in the tower, Uno’l
Robert slowly raised himself
ami looked toward the tower and
waited. “Bong” again came the
single note of the mellow bell,
Gracious, here was a mystery.
Inc bell was in the Episcopal bel
fry; be looked across the fosce
toward the Rectory, and 10l them
was Mummy Ritia, busied wfth
washing some table napkins right
before him on the Rectory poch.
Be would call her; ho would find
the meaning for thisstrange thing;
surely she would know—it did not
seem to disturb her, so she must
know. Why, of course, wasn’t
she a “Piscopul?” Did she not
know all the mysteries of that pe
culiar people “who ain’ got no
ngon en whar de pabson wars a
abroad?” Had it not been ru
mored that within those myste
-1 l0U!i 'villa and closed doors where
even the windows were leaded and
m ed with colored glass “to keep
tokes rum seem’ wnat dey doin’

i>een seen in spite of all their pre
caution standing up with tho “whi’
“o i ’ • on a back bench,
er jawin’ at de pahson outen er
)ook on do pahson er Jawin’ back
. *® a > veril y, and more,
" n .°J. that mysterjous man they
ailed the Bishop, who cam® but
once a year from nobody knew
where and went to nobodv seemed
to know where, placed bis bands
on her Wooly head and said the
hoo-doo words, had rendered her
immune to rheumatism for life,
as well ns confe red in some mys
terious wav complete insight into
all the cabalistic secrets of “dem
Piscalopians?” Surely Mammy
Ritta could tell, and so ho called:
“Hi, dnr, Mamin, what flat hell
nippin’ erbont? Dey gin’ nobody
dead?” But Mammy Ritta paid
no heed; she continued to hang up
and wring out napkins, crooning
to herself, “Alas, an’ did my Sa
vior bleed,” Again Unc’l Robert
called, “Hi,dar, Mam’ Ritta—”
But he got no further. Blazing
with indignation, Mammy Ritta
straightened herself up and pierc
ed him with an angry eye. “Hi,
dar, huh? Dai’s it, huh? ’Pears
ter mo you gittin’ inity familious
like wid dat ‘Hi. dar, Mammy.’
Whose yuh mammy? 1 ain’ no kin
ter ynh. Wha’you want, nigger,
anyhow?”
And Unc’i Robert, thoroughly
abashed, replied: “Scuzen mo.
Mis Brigot, 1 ain’ rnenl no hahm,
knowin’ you was a ’Piscopul, I Jes
want tor know who ringin’ dat
bell, eu what fur. ’Taint nohod
dy dead?”
And Mammy Kitta, with a look
of contempt at Uuc’l Robert,
which gradually melted into u look
of profound pity at his ignorance
exclaimed:
"Lo’d amity, niggah. donn you
know nothin’ ’tall ’bout philoso
phy? ’Pears to mo dose Missisip

Unc’l Robert satisfied by his
new-found knowledge, replied,
“Uh-huh.yessum.” And Mammy
Kitta wont back into the kitchen
humming to herself: My soul be
on dy gyurd,” And--
The Rector hearing from Ids
study—fainted.
THE TELOPTO SCOPE.
• ________
Wonderful Device (or Telegraphing
Pictures.
“Although the new century has
scarcely begun,” said a man in
terested in science, yesterday,
“there has already been introduc
ed electrical devices for talking
across the Atlantic, for telephon
ing to tho antipodes, for trans
mitting pictures over a wire just
as articulate speech is carried over
a telephone line, for signaling
through the seas without wires,
and for automatically record
ing telephone messages. Thein
instrumont that transmits optical
images is capable of taking in
Galveston the photograph of a
person in Now York. It is called
the telophotoscopo and will be of
great service to tho police depart
ment in indentifying criminals.
For some time tho Postal Tele
graph Company has had in use in
Boston an iustrumeut which trans
mitted messages to Now York
and automatically printed them in
Roman characters at the rate of
130 words a minute. However,
this is said to be a crude bit of
mechanism compared with the
telophotoscopo. Waldtmiar Poul
sen, an electrical engineer of Co
penhagen, Denmark, has invented
what he terms tho telephono
graph, which may he said to per
petuate a telephone message, as
it will repeat a conversation 10,
000 times or more. In connection
with Edison’s electromonograph,
the tclcphonograph will deliver
messages so distinctly that an as
semblage of more than 500 persons
may hear them perfectly. It is
likely that before 1915 train dis
patching will be done exclusively
by telephone, and permanent re
cords kept of all orders. Then
there is tho wireless telephone
system of Prof. Collins of Phila
delphia, who struck upon a plan
to utilize the electric currents Just
below the earth’s surface. Re
cently messages were sent across
the Delaware river, a distance of
more that a mile and tho and the
words were enunciated with abso
lute clearness. Prof. Pupin of
Columbia University has almost
perfected a trans-Atlantic tele
phone. Ho will use a relay system
and the spoken words will be au
tomalicaly repeated, say, every
100 miles. In this way they will be
strong and clear at their ultimnto
destination.”

“The friends of Hon. E. J,
Bowers are quietly aiinouttcing
him as a candidate ’for Congress.
Mr. Bowers will not make formal
announcement until after the ad
journment of the Legislature.
This gives decidedly an interest

a warm time for the candidate
who undertakes to wage war with
Mr. Bowers. Mr, Bower* is a na
tive of this State, having been
born in Canton, Madison county,
some twenty-five years ago. Ho
is considered one of the most bril

A STRANGE REQUEST.
Jim Frye Wants Enough Bananas
Before He Dies.
In all of their varied exper
iences with criminals the city and
county officials have never en
countered such ns Jim Frye. He
seems to be thoroughly indiffer
ent and unmindful of his fate, and
is not disturbed in the least over the
fact that on the 7th of next month,
which is a little over three weeks
distant, that ho is to die upon the
i gallows.
Yesterday afternoon Sheriff
Harding visited the jail, to inform
and to impress upon Jim Fowler,
alias Frye, that ho was to he ush
ered out of this world in a very
short time,ninl that he had better
be preparations for the
event.
So the colonel called the con
demned man out of his cell and
told him that he was soon to be
called a way; that he was to drop
into eternity through the gallows;
that there was no help for him.
the sentence had been passed, and
that he would have to answer for
his foul crime with hi own life,
and that ho had best be making
preparations to make his final
exit. The sheriff thought that
Mm negro would ask that he
should ho prayed for, and would
want several Bible* and a preach
er. but not Jim. When the slier
iff had fini-hed he said, n a most
matter of fact way: “('an’t you
give me plenty of bananas, Just for
once, boss, befo’ 1 die." The re
quest knocked the official off his
feet, but he told the negro that
he should have plenty of bananas,
and the negro has been sitting in
his cell with a bunch of the yel
low fruit by his side and satisfy
ing a longing and a hunger, that
up yesterday, had never been
gratified. He seems to ho con
tented now, and willing to die,
that he has had enough bananas.

A ‘Popular’ Man Who Never Forgot
a Face or a Name, Out he Went
Wrong Once.
‘‘l once knew a fellow,” said
I the commercial traver, “whoso
object in life was to lie looked up
on as a’pnpular man,’ and he strove
strenuously to that end. He was
one of those baby kissing creatures
who told every father that the
child iu question was the bright
\ est,prettiest youngster he over saw.
His pockets were always cnirnmed
i with vile cigars, which he declared,
looking in the vague distance, had
been sent him by a friend living in
, Havana, and they might be good
or they might not; he liad Just re
ceived them and hadn’t tested
one. At the second time he met
a person ho invariably called him
by his first name. He made it a
fioint to remember every name,
or he knew enough of human
nature to realize the pique a per
son feels when he or she has made
sufficient impression to insure his
or her name being remembered.
But this man I knew was once
completely taken back, lie was
sent as a delegate to a convention
of the United Something or An
other, and he hud been introduc
ed to possibly 200 men. It was
impossible for him to remember
every name and this was a great
source of annoyance to him. Fi
nally he hit upon a plan that was
unique, even if it did ultimately
cause him acute discomfiture.*
When ho had occasion to speak
to a delegate and had forgotten
his name ho would approach him
and then ask in the sweetest of
voices: ‘How did you say you
spelled your name?’ This was
subtle indeed. On the last night
of the convention, however, the
formulae failed him. Ho wished
to ask a favor of a delegate from
| the eastern part of the State, hut
| couldn’t think of his name. So
he resorted to his query: ‘How
did you say you spoiled your
name?” In clear tones, audible
to twenty persons who hoard the
question, camo tho reply
‘J-o-n-e-s.’ ”
