White Woman Diet
At Mulatto Home
Thomasville.—Mrs. Roxobel Gainey,
of Wallburg community was buried at
that place Sunday, her age being
years. Death released her spirit from
what was mortal on Friday night
while in the home of her daughter, who
is a mulatto, with a negro husband and
a number of children. The home of
this family with whom the aged Wo
man had lived for many years is said
to be in an almost unknown spot by
the average white person in the neigh
borhood, described as a wood hack of
a pasture, the entrance to the prem
ises being on apath with two gates
to be opened and shut by those pass
ing that way.
After an unfortunate circumstance
which practically ostracised the young
woman from her former associates,
she married Mr. Gainey, with whom
she lived until he died at the ago of
70 years. It was then that Mrs, Gainey
went to live with her daighter there
making her home until her body nes
tled in a casket was borne from thence
I to the hearse by'the hands of her col
ored neighbors, led by a colored preach
er, to a colored church where the fun
eral services were held by a colored
preacher, interment being made ac
cording to her request in the colored
cemetery thereby and again in ac
cordance with her last request, by the
side of a grandchild who died about
four year.-i ago.

Doe* It Pay
To Be Thrifty
(By Carl Anthony, 10th Crude.)
T (tvs e.<r that every true red blood

(o Ut thrifty. Per hap* yoa have often
hfwd It said, “that It Isn't what ww
Aavva that eonnts“. In my mind th#
above statement la as true a* th*
ftoexU* is to the pole. A person can
make a hundred dollars a week and
still not hare any put aside for a rainy
day at the end of the month or year
if they are extravagant. The spend
thrift* perhaps any: “Take no thought
for tomorrow for what re shall eat
nor what ye shal> wear.” U’« true th*
Bible teaches us that. But let* go
back a little and consider everything.
Perchance you Hare noticed on a
bright summer day the li’tle ant how

in order to get ahead a supply of food
for the winter weather. As Clod made

yen ever notat'd wasteful people? T
prermme that, yon have and on the oth.
er hand noticed saving prop'*. There
is as mnch difference in my estimation
between saving and extravagance ax
there Is between day and night. Th«
rtheifty person .has never beyn over?
estimated nor will they ever he in
their (ru» worth and value to Amer

makes money and spends it too, hut
spends it wisely. Next beware of the
tight wads for enough of them would
force every business of its kfnd to he

today. They hare money hut will not
spend if nor allow it to get Into ctr

can they he strong and the appetite
qoenched until some good wholesome
food is eaten? And so the same ap
plies to the tight wad.: if fhey have
money and will not let it get iuto dr*
eolation. What good will their money

'put into service it will he worth as
much to the town or city a« rt is worth

Why can't we make this year a real
thrifty year? We can do it if we will.

Now lets not only talk thrift hut let's
