THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
TRUSTFUL WAITING: Our soul
waiteth for the Lord; He is our help
and our shield. Psalm 33:20.
HOW CAN WE IMPROVE
What is a good town?
There is a little song which chil
dren used to be taught, which ran
"I am proud of my town,
Is my town proud of me?
What she needs is citizens
Trained in loyalty.
When we work, when we play
With our fellow-man,
Good citizens we will be,
, Then I'll be proud,
Proud of my home town,
And I'll make her proud of me!"
There are some citizens which our
town has a right to be proud of. But
what about you and me, we average
citizens? Is our town proud of us?
And do we have reason to be proud
of our town? Personally, I am proud
of my town, though I know it has
faults. I see much to be proud of.
f erhaps I am biased in my judgment
because I like Hertford so much. I
like to live in Hertford. I think Per
quimans folks are the finest in the
world, or at least the finest I have
known. Having lived here for nearly
a quarter of a century, I feel quali
fied to speak for or against the place.
That's the way I feel personally.
There are folks who are not so at
tached to the place, who do not, per
haps, have the same reasons that I
have for liking Hertford, who sec
In fairness, it must be admitted
that we as a town have some faults,
some very grave ones. We lack a lot
of being perfect. Incidentally, I
never heard of a town which didn't
Most of our citizens can and do
point out a good many improvement I
which could be made in the town, j
But, after all, what i. the town but
its citizens, you and I? So what?.
Isn't the town what we make it?
Maybe wo ought to see about im
proving our: elves first.
I recently heard an individual say,
,in critidsii.i of Hertford, that we ap
parently had no leaders in llcrtlo,
(Strong enough to take a decided st-..
on local public questions; that sor.-.i
of them feared what somebody el: c
might say; that some feared they
might offend some one with whom
they did business and thereby lost
money; and that others were reluc
tant to take any stand which migh.
TunnnJ tho fpplinas of snmp one else
I don't know that we can do any
thing about the shortcomings of oth
ers by way of making of them goo
citizens, but if every thoughtful per
son in Hertford would take stock oi
themselves and find out if this indict
ment applies to himself ur herself, I
wonder if we wouldn't be on the wa;
to becoming better citizens, if .
town wouldn't be a better town.
It's your job, and mine.

BARGAINS TO BUYERS

place. It is interesting to v;;.i:
through the various stores of
town and to note the cuts that !:..
been made in prices. There aie I.
gains in every class of merchandise
and certain articles have been mail
ed especially low.
While the merchants are giving the
public the benefit of these low price
in order to clean up the winter stock
and make room for the spring good:
which will be coming in shortly, i is
certainly a fine opportunity to buy
at low prices the things needed by
every family or individual.

"Aunt" Rhoda Diea V
fcv At Belvidere Hone
Rhoda Perry," well known colored
woman of the Belvidere section,
whose life deserves "mention,' died
Sunday morning, January 6ta, fun
eral services being held ait her home
Monday afternoon with a number of
white people in attendance.
"Aunt" Rhoda, as she was called
by most people, was probably the
oldest person in the Belvidere com
munity. She never knew her age ex
actly, but her people thought she was
98 or more. ;
She never married nut spent most
of her life helping others. Her .early
days were in time of slavery, and it
was very interesting to listen to the
many things she could tell of what
she knew of how the colored people
were treated and about her life. Af
ter the slaves got their freedom she
found homes among the best people,
for her honest, upright life gave her
a name that caused people to seek
her help. She lived in nearly all the
homes in Belvidere at some time of
her life and some in Hertford. In
her. younger days she lived in Rhode
Island, Connecticut, Philadelphia and
Baltimore at Johns Hopkins Orphan
age. Once she went to Indiana as
nurse for Dr. Elbert White and his
sisters. She abo spent one summer
at Thermont, Ind., in a boarding
house. But for the last 30 years she
spsnt most of the time at her home
helping people in the neighborhood
Now she has finished her work
here, and friends feel sure sha has
been gathered to her eternal rest, for
"by their fruits ye shall know them."
"Aunt" Rhoda's life was such that
both white and colored loved and
honored her. She was an example
for her race to follow.
