Around Our TOWN
By RENN DRUM
A negro man, nearing the half century mark, sitting over in the
court room here yesterday listening to evidence in his preliminary hear
ing on a charge of muder, various expressions flitting across his furrow
ed and ginger-colored brow, proved to us a theory we have held for years
—that the people of the negro race have vivid imaginations despite the
general belief that they do not. I-——
The negro's name was Cliff Ful
lenwider niuJTie killed hit young
.rother-Ml-law Sunday afternoon in
Uo^rtfd of a colored church not far
distant from Shelby. But names
ind details matter little in our ar
gument, w hich is to show that col
ored people do have minds which,
fortunately or unfortunately, can
'oncelve more imaginary things
han can the minds of their white
irettiren. Perhaps the average
nentality of the race is low, but,
nevertheless, the imagination is
here and it does not restrict itself
,o union hours in working.
To recall all the superstitious
ghost stories related by and told tn
connection with members of the
Slack race It Is hard to understand
how anyone has ever delivered the
opinion that "a colored man has no
Imagination.” Ofet, right often you
hear some one say, in referring to
thr happy-go-lucky life colored peo
ple appear to live, “they have no
Imagination; they never think about
tomorrow and they do not know
what worry is.”
That's all bologney. If you ask us,
or if you do a bit of observing O'l
your own part.
Any mind that can picture ghorts,
apparatlons and specters can vision
In our memory not a single col
ored slayer has been placed in the
county Jail, down where East War
ren atreet runs Into Jones Place,
who has not- during his first night
in a cell visioned the face or voice
of hts victim. Pew of them sleep
more than an hour at a stretch for
tho first few nights.
It was that W'ay with Cliff Ful
lenwtder. His brow filled with
troubled furrows, and his half
frightened brown eyes darting about
the court room Tuesday morning
were ample proof. Yet he told offi
cers at the Jail what might be
termed further proof of the ima
gination of the negTo mind.
"All night long I heard him (the
man he shot) walking about in the
sand." he said. The churchyard
where the killing took place was
sandy, but there Is no sand on the
floors down In the county jail. Such
was the cruel working of Fullen
wlder's Imagination Sunday and
Monday nights in jail that he not
only could hear the footsteps in tihe
sand but his mental worries so un
strung his three colored cellmates
that they. too. were unable to sleep
and began to picture apparitions
of their own
Still some people will tell you
that a colored mnn has no Imagina
tion. It's pure bunk. They may be
able to brush away money worries
and other such troubles of life as
the white man brushes the cobwebs
out of his eyes on the morning rft
er, but wherein dead people and
spooks are concerned the negro has
an Imagination from which great
novels might come had they the
proper education and atmosphere
for the work.
Not being versed in psychology
we cannot explain what appears vo
be the Irrefutable declaration that
the reason the negro race is satis
fied under existing conditions is be
cause they have no imagination and
cannot vision to themselves what
they might be or might have been
Despite that we contend that they
do have mentalities capable of vi
sioning things In their mind—and
they may be satisfied with life as
it is. We do not know, for no one
can tell what is going on behind
those faces laughing in care-f ee
style one moment, and closing up
into a frosen stoical expression the
next which cannot be read.

Men From Cabin Doors.
i By S. Frontis.)
Wc boast about our modern schools
And methods up to date,
And all these new tangled ways
About which teachers prate;
And point with pride to buildings
Where they teach all sorts of love,
But they don’t turn out the schol
That came from cabin doors.
The fundamentals are not taught
As they used to be.
They’re out of dale as much today
As the "Rule of Three.”
There's too much haste to cover
The fact wc all deplore,
To ever turn such scholars out
As came from cabin doors.
Pupils pass from book to book
With a hop, skip, and a jump
And the books that are discarded
Are cast uside as junk.
They didn’t have the time to get
The contents therein stored,
Like those who studied fewer books
Behind the cabin doors.
It takes deep plowing to conserve
The moist ure for the crop.
It takes time and study to absorb
Text books now days taught.
This skimming of the surface.
And neglecting of the core.
Cannot produce such learned men
As came from cabin doors.
I grant the course is broader,
More subjects now are taught.
But they skim o’er them so quickly
They're very soon forgot.
And the graduates are counted,
Not by dozens but by scores,
But they haven’t had the training
Of the men from cabin doors.
"A little learning's dangerous,”
The poet truly said.
While Festus said to 'postle Paul
‘‘Much learning makes thee mad. ’
However much or little
Our teachers now may know.
They don’t turn out the scholars
That came from cabin doors.
Yet their salaries quadruple
Those of thirty years ago.
And the school books of a ten years
Will number half a score.
Taxes loo are higher than
They ever were before.
But does the produce equal that
Turned out from cabin doors?
Sonic teachers now attempt to teach
That God evolved a man.
From monkeys he'd created
'Fore the human race began;
They may preach their monkev
From the mountains to the shores
But they'll never change the minds
Who came from cabin doors.

It Is a far more common thing to neglect .he
