know how to go about finding

Ans : Consult with some gool
attorney there in your city and
let him check up on the property
thoroughly ... he can put the
whole business before your eyes
and let you see what must be
paid out in order to hold the
place. If the indebtness is too
great ... let it slide by and make
the change that j'ou are contem

A. R. — wife got so she
like to go car riding, she go and
stay out real late and sometime

is the trouble with her? She tells
stories to me all the time and I
want her to tell the truth. I told
her I didn’t care if she went out
if she would tell me the truth.
What is she going to do?
Ans; Well she thinks she
wants to leave and make her
home in some other town for she
dosn’t care for married life.
There is very little that you can
do in a situatfon of this kind , .

Goner Gregson & Main Sts.
(By William Pickens for ANP
He is (lend. lie was a scholar,
a great philo:H)plior, but not at
all suited to pnu'fioul life. He
could not nianiiiT'’ in economic
life; he needed a place wIkto his
life would be fre«* of’ iill rcoiio.nic
exactions and when* lu* (unild
think, talk and write Philosopliy.
His own race could give liirn no
such place, — and Yale and
Harvard would not. Yale dnd
Harvard adniittel him as a stu
dent to their highest counses in
philosophy and burdened him
with their Ph. I)’s. Then they
were through with him.
One great professor of philos
ophy at Yale in 1903 tol^d me
that Ferris was one of the best
students he had ever taught. He
.said nothing about Perris as
an associate profes.sor or even as
an instructor in the department
of philosophy.
And so Ferris wandered a-
broad among his own people,
who had no niche for his im-
practial genius. He tired school
teaching, and accidentally blew
up a part of the chemical lab
oratory equipment. He wrote a
book — “The African Abroad",
-Cumbersome, full, scholarly,
but not so attractive to the hoi
polloi. He became an editor of
Garvey’s “Negro World”; and
wrote editorials that were good,
except when they were dictated
or too much influenced by Gar-
talk things over with her and

she seems to have definitely
made up her mind about leaving
Let her go ... it won’t take her
many months to get this idea out
of her head for she she isn’t too
fond of work and no other man
is going to provide the good liv
ing that you have. The change
will straigm;en her out quicker
than anything else.
W. R. — Recently I took out
an insurance policy on my hus
band and he thinks that I should
let it go. Now I am paying it and
I feel that I should hold on to
it. Let me know if I am right?
Ans: I for one, am a firm be
liever in insurance and it is an
investment . . . you don’t have
anything to lose. Keep the in
surance and say nothing more
about it.
M. C. G. — My friend says she
has a gentleman she wants me
to meet and he has expressed his
desire to meet me. Should I put
myself in his way ?
Ans: Why not . . . you should
meet as many different people
as you can. Go ahead and meet
the man ... he is keenly interes
ted in you from seeing you.
Since tHat he has wandered a-
bout' trying to live in a world
which he was ill-educated, —
because his own race had no
place that fitted his genius and
preparation and the white race
would not admit his genius. He
could not handle money or man-
a"o his own personal econom/.
Ho should haye had a professor
ship that would pay him so
much per month for his life,—
so l!:at he could not spend,
waste or he robbed of all of it
at once. What he received one
month, he would be certain not
to be in possession of ndtt
month. If a whole year’s salary
had been paid him at once, he
would probably starve for thf
last eleven months of his year.
But he could have filled a
great place usefully, if his race
had been able to make a place
for him. Maladjusted is not only
a quality of the person but is a
quality of the environment.
He makes us remember ano
ther great misfit — Hubert Har
rison, — one of the fullest two-
legged cyclopedias we have ever
met, — who ought to have sat in
a lecture chair, at Columbia or
New York University, where
many a lesser scholar has sat;
but instead, had to lecture from
step-ladders on the streets of
Harlem and try to live from sel
ling pamphlets and book. Harri
son, too, was incapable of any
practical economic management,
and should not have been bur
dened with it. He had lectured
on Wall Street to wide-eyed
stock manipulators and famous
financiers; he had spoken to
crowds at City Hall; he had
served the City forums. He had
entertained the rabble and the
radical. He knew every book
from “Alice in Wonderland” to
“The Decline of the West”, —
and his family was always on
the move, from place to place
and from flat to flat, because of
upaid rent.
William Ferris and Hubert
Harrison, — these two black
m^ri of genius are pierfect illu
stration of something w'c may
some day overcome in the diffi
cult situation of Black Ameri
if it is lacking in humus, a crop

Unless the land is very fertile
a one-to-two-inch layer of well-

Where top soil has eroded, it
should be replaced, the humus

Q, What care is necessary for
farm machinery during the win
ter months?
A. David S. Weaver, Agrri-
Engineering Dept, says farmers
should take adequate .steps to
protect and house their machin
ery and implements this winter.
More equipment rusts and rots
away than actually wears away
through use. Paint up ma
chines, grease all exposed met
al surfaces, and store them un
der a shelter. Such a practice
will pay handsome dividends.
Q. Do young pullets lose ef
ficiency when too many are
crowded into one house?
A. At least'3% to 4 square
feet'of floor space should be
allowed for each bird.
Q. (>in electricity be used to
cure sweet potatoes?
A. A growine number of
farmers in North Carolina and
neighboring states are using
electricity for curing and stor
ing sweet potatoes.
