OBJECT LESSON FOR ANYONE
Hundred Year Old Colored Woman
Decides on The Bank.
The Raleigh Times. Feb. 17.
Slinging a shining milk can from
under her shawl “Aunt Katie Jor
dan,” who in spite of her activity and
i bright eyes claims to be a hundred,
showered 155 silver dollars on the
desk of Ed. Crow in the Commercial
National bank Saturday. The bright
est and shiniest dollar of them all
was one dated 1887. For thirty-six
years Aunt Katie has been hiding
Ker silver hoard in the “chist,” but
the recent Simpkins’ Garage fire set
the old woman thinking and she de
cided that after all maybe the bank
could take care of her savings better
than the old “chist.”
The paper money that Aunt Katie
has been able to save from her work,
washing, ironing and cooking, she has
deposited in the bank, fearing that it
might be burned, but the silver she
kept in her little cabin safely hid
“What made you bring it to M*.
Crow?” someone asked.
“Lawse I been knowin’ Mr. Ed.
evah since he was er little boy. I
knowed he’d tak keer uv my money,”
the old negro woman answered with
Mr. Crow smiled. “Aunt Katie used j
to bring me good things to eat when ;
I was sick,” he said. p j
“How old are you, Aunt Katie,” she !
was asked. !
“I don’ tknow zactly, but I’s over a !
hundred. My birthday comes just be- J
so George Washingt’ns. I wuz done ]
a grown ’oman befo de Mexican Wah,” <
she replied. Her wrinkled skin and !
white hair alone testifies to her ad- !
vanced age, for she is still active and \
her eyes are bright. She has all the
deference and politeness of the old ;
time negroes with a srtong loyalty '
for “her white folks.” She was a !
slave in the family of Robert Harri- !
son. She lives somewhere near the ‘
rock Quarry, though she was unable '
to. say on what street. !
While the “chist” has safely guard- !
ed Aunt Katie’s little hoard of silver j
dollars from fire or theft, it has ;
nevertheless robbed the old woman of <
more than half of her little fortune. !
If Aunt Katie had begun depositing !
her money in the bank when she first |
made that bright shiney dollar in j
1887, the amount would have been '
more than doubled by this time and '
instead of $156 there would have been !
over three hundred dollars to her J
credit besides the paper money which \
she has from time to time been wil- 1
ling to trust to Mr. Ed’s keeping.
