Wise County Messenger from Decatur, Texas (2024)

DECATUR. April returning home from an evangelistic tour through the country, to our great sarprise and pleasure we found the brethren had gloriously "pounded" us. "If at first you don't succeed try, try The good people of Christian church succeeded marvously "at first." but they believe that "nothing succeeds like hence early Monday morning they resumed the "pounding" business. One would come in and "deal us a blow," observe the effect, return it seems, report to another one of the "tribe" and in they would come and let fly another blow, until late in the day, when two good sisters sent in some edibles supplemented with some "filthy lucre," and now we have a superabundance of groceries, and we not sure the "end is yet in These are noble people and we are glad to live and labor among them.

"The Leopa-d's Spots" and the Negro. The following excerpts are taken from the Rev. Thomas Dixon's novel, Leopard's "The future American must be an Anglo-Saxon or a mulatto! We are now deciding which it shall be. The future of the world depends upon the future of this republic. The republic can have no future if racial lines are broken and its proud citizenship sinks to the level of a mongrel breed of mulattoes.

The South must fight this battle to a finish. Two thousand years look down upon the struggle, and two thousand years of the future bend low to catch the message of life or death! Get rid of the negro? Ye gods, that would be a task! The negro is the sentimental pet of the nation. Put him on a continent alone, and he will sink like an iron wedge to the bottomless pit of barbarism. The African has held one-fourth of the globe for 3000 years. He has never taken one step in progress or rescued one jungle from the ape and the adder, except as the slave of a superior race.

He has one hundred years of trial in the Northern states of this union, with every facility of culture and progress, and he has not produced one man who has added a feather's weight to the progress of humanity. The more you educate, the more impossible you make his position in a democracy. Can you change the color of his skin, the kink of his hair, the bulge of his lips, the spread of his nose with a spelling book? The negro is the human donkey. You can train him, but you can't make him a horse. Mate him with a horse you lose the horse and get a larger donkey called a mule, incapable of preserving his species.

What is called our race prejudice is simply God's first law of nature-the instinct of self-preservation." Female Weakness Oured. Iwas troubled with severe female weakness for over six months. I was treated by six very prominent physicians without any marked benefit. My last doctor was a skilled specialist, and he told me that the only hope lay in an operation. I heard of Smith's Sure Kidney Cure and after using it for one month I find myself cured, and even the doctor who last treated me now pronounces me J.

Grove's signature is on each box, 25c. April 5th the Death Angel came and took from our midst the spirit of Mrs. B. E. Stewart (bet.

ter known as Aunt Biddy). In early youth she professed faith in God and joined the Missionary Baptist church, of which she was a consistent and devoted member, leaving an example of Christianity for us to follow, wnich would insure us a home in that fair Celestial City with God and the angels. She leaves two sons, several grandchildren and a host of friends to mourn her loss. She was kind and good to all, hence winning the friendship of a multitude. Her place in life is vacant and cannot be filled.

She is gone; dear relations and friends; weep not. Ere long we, too, shall be called by the angel band to realms of bliss and glory, there to see her spirit mingling with the ransomed of God. Her dying moments were spent in bidding her friends goodbye and asking them to meet her in heaven. Gone, oh, but not forgotten. Her blessed memory still lives.

Oh, how we miss her, but God in His infinite wisdom saw best to call her home. He needed another flower to grace his holy garden, to add beauty and fragrance to this sainted spot. God in His purity does all for the best. What a sweet home of delight and rest heaven is; no sorrow, pain nor death can enter its open portals--a peaceful home, a pure home. Let us all strive to meet this sweet sister in Paradise.
