OUR NEAR NORTH HOE
By L. WALKER
Another week, and things are
still going on. The .North Side
os still in the running and it1 is
good. We are having our fun
and troubles also, we have en
tertained visitors from all sides
of town and they ai’e also satis
fied. This comes from one of
our readers and a loyal citizen

From the southland comes the
following"sroTy: In Tipton Coun

Edmondson. Blind but other
wise his physical condition is,
well, we cannot say perfect; hut
is a little above par.
ThisT is wheat was told to the
reporter that interiewe'd him at
the farm in Brighton. Being
asked concerning his age, he
replied: “I don’t know, but I
was born December 25th, 1824”.
Then you were born a slave?
Oh yes, was the answer. Mv
master’s name was Mr. Charley
Edmondson, that is why I’m
His official birth record was
lost in the flood of T912, also a
$300.00 bankroll, two suits Of
clothes. He emphasized that
was a bad flood. About the war, j
I was in it for six months with j
my master, but I did nr. fight- |

admitted being a gambler in his
youth, and added that gambling
money did no good
Crime Draesn’t Pay
In answer to the question: —
would he like to live another
hundred years ? he answered:
“I am acquainted here, and I
don’t care if I’m here a thousand
more”. Sin, he says is the trouble!
with the world today. His ad
vice to the younger folk’s was
they should not live so bad that
they would end up in hell.
Noticing a dent in his fore
head, I asked the source of it
being there. The answer w’Us
that he had beem shot with a 38
pistol, but his offender took off
across the field before he could
counter the attack. I didn’t go
to the hospital, (but was unable
to catch the guy that shot me.
A doctor in Memphis informed
him that the bullet in his brain/
was a menace to his health, hut
rather than have someone to
operate on his head he preferred
to let it stay there and so it is.
To all of us that have never

The Northside Auxiliary of
The Chicago Urban League held
a meeting last Saturday night
at the Wayman church. The at
tendance was very poor, I feel
that the residents of the near
Northside should wake up and
respond any meeting sponsored
by any organization, regardless
of race or party, as long as it is
making an effort1 for their bene
fit Their next meeting is "Feb. 4
at the Union Baptist Church. 1
feel that every citizen of the
North Side should come out and
support a cause as worthy as this
one. Ouv children need it, and
are entitled to it, they have their
program outlined for this purpose
of producing it, and it’s up to the
residents f the northside to re
spond and learn of the progress
that is being made. This is each
ones duty to their race and com

Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Palmer
House in the gran ballroom at
12:00 the league is holding its
thirty-thirl annual meeting. Every
person concerned in their own
welfare, will be or should be
there. I’ll be seeing you for I

Davis Cleaners Still
Doing A-l Job
At 355 W. Division the Davis
Cleaners are giving the near
Northside real service in the way
of cleaning pressing and repair*
Ole Doc. the chief hatter, knows
just1 Exactly what to d as far as
custom built hats are concerned.
Let him give you an example,
and see how much better you
look in a real GOOD hat.

Here’s something else from
Tennessee: A large hound was
taking his afternoon sieta, on his
master’s own front lawn; and
what happened? A big bad rah*
hit turns up out of nlowhere and
runs oyer him; collecting his
wits, he tofok off in hot pursuit
of the rabbit and caught him.
He didn’t take the trouble to
fettch’im, he ate him just where
he caught him.
It’s not that I’m nosey- but
that is abbut all one could call
it. But its surprising h»w many
folks residing in this large town
have been neglegent about regis
tering. This paper has contin
uously advocated that all citizens
should register, it has also in
formed them of the importance
in their dbing so. Be a good,
loyal citizen, if you are not regis
tered, then DO SO NOW’!
Rou never can tell when you
will need your vote, maybe some
day I’ll decide to run for some
office, instead of running form
all officers. Then I would be
expecting your vote, no register,
no vote. So again I repeat —
This is not exactly how T heard
it said; but there’s millions now
1 living that should 'be dead.
I hope on this shee you find
For this is sincerely how I feel.
Lbu help me, and I’ll help you
This way every ordeal will come
So, until neyt week, A TONE

Be slow to anger. The wise j

matter. “Anger is sc wind which
