Rutledge, Term.—“For thirty years
or longer we have been using Black

medicine, and have found it to be
very handy,” says Mrs. John Mc
Ginnis. of near here.
“Since I have been married and
had children of my own, I have
found it to be a fine medicine to
give them for colds and indigestion.
I have three little girls; and when I
see one of them fretful and ‘droopy*
in the morning, I begin treating her
with a course of Black-Draught. It
is not long until she is lively and
well again. I make a tea of it and
give it to the children, as they take
it best that way.
“I take Black-Draught for con
stipation and indigestion. If I wake
up with a bad taste in my mouth
and feel sluggish and dull, I know
it is time for a dose of Black
“We try to keep a box of Black
Draught always in the house and
are seldom without it. My health
is generally good, but I think it is

Women Taken From High
Pedestal By Magistrate
Learn' That They Are Liars And
Have No Sense Of Law
And Order.
New York —Woman, lovely wom
an, would be shocked to know how
she appears to Magistrate Alexan
der Brough, who has been peering at
her with increasing skepticism dur
ing six years he has presided over
the New York family court.
Those six years Magistrate Brough
admitted, have chased him away
from seeing eye to eye with the
poets. They have, in fact, lined the
judge up with H L. Mencken, the
well-known bachelor, who has for
long hitched up his red suspenders
and taken to flight every time he
got a whiff of Egyptian Nights per
Magistrate Brough learned about
women in court, and here are some
cf the things he said he learned:
They have no sense of law and
They have no consideration or
fairness towards their husbands.
Instead of being the pursued, they
are the pursuers, often seeking a
wedding ring simply to avoid the
social stigma (among women) of
appearing undesirable.
They marry a $25 a week man
and holler because they can't live on
a $60 scale.
Given $15 a week as the maximum
for the family budget, they will
blow- $10 on a permanent wave.
They are so lacking in sentiment
(aha Brother Mencken, didn't you
tack that one on the creatures a
while back?) That they don't even
remember their own wedding day.
They say, *'I was married three or
four years ago,'' and that does them
They are loafers, gossipcrs. braw
lers, poor sports and no help.
Magistrate Brough paused for
breath. Also to qualify. He does not
believe that all women are that way.
No indeed—only most of the ones
who come into court. Outside of
court. Magistrate Brough prefers to
believe that ladies ride around be
hind their knights on white pal
freys eternally grateful for being
rescued from certain dragons.
"Why, a woman was in court yes
terday wanting me to increase the
payments her husband was making
for her support, said the judge.
"Our social workers investigated and
found he couldn't pay her any more.
When I denied her request, she got
so angry she slapped and scratched
her husband right there in court.
"What can you do to her? You
can’t send a mother to jail for con
tempt and let her children go with
out care."
Tut! Tut! The magistrate scratch
ed his chin.
“Another woman the other day,"
he said, “wanted more money and
said she wasn't working. Our in
vestigators knew she was.
“ ‘Oh, well,' she admitted, ‘I knew
I’d get more money if you thought
I was dependent on him.'
“And when we threatened her
with prosecution for perjury, she
just laughed and said ‘I don't care.’
"She was a mother, too, with
children, who had to be consider
Magistrate Brough rubbed his
' They've ail got old clothes to
wear in court,” said the disillusion
ed judge. “They all dress to look
seedy when asking money. Usually
they accuse the husband of going
around with other women. I figure
the absolute minimum for a man
to lie on alone is $2 a day. And
when he is paying $15 to her out
of $30 wages there isn’t much left
for other women."
But can mere arithmetic allay
wifely suspicion?
"Any how. usually they try to say ;
the husbands wages are much high
er than they really are." said Mag- ;
istrate Brough.
"A woman will take her dress oil j
in court any time to show a bruise.
And when her husband is trying to
tell his side of the story, she will j
always interrupt him—no sense of ,
"Women have the idea that they
run the' town.” said Magistrate
Brough. "They feel that the courts | (
must give them everything they j
want. They know all about their •
rights, but they recognize no re
But the magistrate carefully at- j
firmed that he doesn't believe these 1
things of all women Only the ones !
who come into court And some cf I

Jonesboro.—Remarkable is the ' >
record of Patsy Womack, of Lee ,
“Aunt Patsy" was born in slavery
days and she was owned by Frank
Harrington, of Jonesboro. She is
past four score years but is a great
deal more active than the majority j
of persons that are 20 years young
She owns a farm near Sanford
which contains 11 1-2 acres, six
acres being in cultivation. She raises i
cotton, corn and vegetables. The |
labor on the farm is done by "Aunt
Patsy" including the plowing.
She is deeply religious. Her child
like faith and simplicity in these
days of skepticism are indeed re- : .
freshing. Darwinism, evolution, etc
do not bother her and the least 'or >
she has no doubts that she will some j
day walk along heaven's golden j
streets. >"
She has been a member of the '
Baptist church for 42 years, and •
she proudly tells you that she .s ,
"Baptist all over."
This intelligent and typical war- |
time darkey vehemently shakes her
head in disapproval of the modem
ways of the young people. She par
ticularly dislikes short skirts and
thinks everybody who wears them
is headed straight for destruction.
She has five living children and .
is quite proud of the fact that on:
of her sons is a preacher.
She attrib ites her unusual, j
strength of mind and body at her
extreme age to faith in God.
It is only a question of a very
short time before the South will
have no more “Aunt Patsy's.” Their :
final passing will rob the Southern j
people of one of their chief glories.
