THE BEAL “HOME SWEET HOME.”
This is the real “‘Home, sweet home” the birthplace of John Howard Payne
at Easthampton, L. I. On May Bth next, the centenary of the son* will
be celebrated—probably by its being sung all over the world for it was
just 100 years ago, that date, that the world famous ballad was first
sung in public in an Opera called Clan or the Maid of Milan.
The negro has several points of
superiority over any other race.
Not the least of these is his sense
of humor. ~j
A negro is unquestionably the fun
niest man in the world. The negro
joke still ranks above anything the
Irishman can do, or the Yankee, or
The reason is that the negro is in
stinctively good natured, utterly hu
man, and can see the funny side of
anything. - *
Everybody has his collection of neg
ro jokes. Here are a few which, al
though they may be chestnuts, illus
trate the negro’s peculiar gift.
A colored man going to work ong
morning passed a jail. A prisoner
looked out through the bars and call
ed to him and asked him what time
it was: “What do you want to know
what time it is for?” replied the dar
key. “You ain’t goin’ to no place.”
- A guest at a hotel had had a cer
tain colored waiter for several days,
had tippqd him liberally and was en
joying especial attention. One morn
ing the waiter passed him by and
another took his place. The guest
called to the first waiter and asked
him why he had deserted'him. “Well
replied the waiter, “you see, I done
lost you last night; boss, in a game
of craps.” ’
A railroad contractor employed a
number of negroes in Florida. One
of them would sit up most of the
night playing cards. The employer re
monstrated with him' and told him
that be did not get enough sleep, and
that-he could not expect to do his
work when he sat up until 3 o’clock
playing cards and got up at 6 to
work. “Yas,” replied the negro, “I
gits sleep enough, boss. You see, I
sleeps awful fast.”
One of O. Henry’s favorite stories
was about the negro who had been
condemned to death by a judge. “You
are to be taken out into the yard
hung by the neck until you are dead,
on the 13th day of August. Have you
anything to say?” said the judge.
The negro rose to his feet and, after
stammering a bit, inquired, “You all
don’t mean this coming August, do
A characteristic reply was that of
a negro who was asked where he was
going. “I ain’t goin’ nowhere,” was
the ‘ answer. “I done been where I’m
Illustrative of the negro’s happy
disposition is the story of a man who
wanted a laborer to help him move a
piano. He stepped out on the street
and saw a negro leaning against a
lamp-post. ‘Do you want to earn a
quarter?” he asked. The boy slowly
turned his head and said, “No sir; I
got a quarter.”
A young negro had been away from
his native town in Kentucky to Chi
cago for some months. His name was
Fred Brown. When he returned home
some one greeted him with “How are
you, Fred?” He replied, “My name
! ain’t Fred no more; I done changed
my name. My name now is S. R.
Brown. That’s my name. Cicero
A negro waiter in a southern town
asked a guest at a hotel what kind of
pie he would have for dinner. “What
kind of pie have you?” asked the
guest. The answer was, “Black, straw,
huck an’ raz’ ”. And if you say these
