We must extend our thanks to
our white friends for the interest
manifested in us towards nelping us
in our church both by contributions, j
presence and speech. I think it but
right to say to the reading public,
that our people were highly bene
fitted and much stimulated by the
address of our esteemed townsman,
Mr. C G Montgomery. Long will his
truths live in the hearts of our peo
ple to work out a great problem that
only time will solve'. We received
from all sources $90 for Price Me
morial Temple. Again we must
thank our white friends.

Everything was orderly, good
natured and not a single thing haps
pened to mar the pleasure. Cabarrus

its colored people.
Too Cut Off.
Thursday evening Barber J L
Montgomery brought into our office
a little negroe's toe. His name is
Goodman. He ran up to Sam Eury
and a3ked to ride with him on a bi
cycle. Jumping on the little bare
footed boy got his big toe under the
chain and when pabsing around the
wheel the toe was cut entirely off.
This toe Montgomery wrapped in a
paper and brought to this office.
The toe was yet alive, though fast
growing cold. It's the completest
case of amputation we ever saw.
