culation calculation shows that in Alabama there
were twenty-eight persons killed and
about the same number of persons
seriously or fatally wounded.
Taking for granted that an equal
number were killed and wounded in
the remaining twelve Southern states,
and I think that this is a conservative
estimate, we have a total of about 300
persons killed and an equal number
wounded during Christmas week.
Of course I realize that all of this
shooting was not done by colored peo people,

accidents relate to members of my
My object in writing is to appeal to
the masses of our people through the
ministers, teachers and other leaders,
to give up once for all the habit of
carrying concealed weapons. It is a
subject that should be taken up in the
pulpit. In the Sunday school, in the
home and continually agitated until
every member of our race who is now
in the habit of carrying concealed
weapons will feel ashamed to do so.
During all the years that I lave lived
in Alabama I have never carried a
concealed weapon, I have never kept
one in my house, and I have never felt
the need of one. I have traveled thru
all arts of the J-outh by night and by
day and have nevt-r felt that I have
been in the last danger, and If I had
I am Quite sure I would not have been
prote-cted by carrying a pistol. Where
a gun or pistol keeps a person out of
trouble one time, nine times it gets
him in trouble. Besides, carrying con concealed
cealed concealed weapons not only does not pro
tect life, but carrying concealed weap-
ons is a barbarous and vulgar habit.
There is no reason why a person In a
civilized country like the United States i
should get in the habit of going around
in the community loaded and burden burdened
ed burdened with a piece of iron In the form of
a pistol or gun.
If this subject is taken up at once
and discussed and agitated through throughout
out throughout the South by our people. I am sure
that within a few years at least the
colored people will cease carrying con concealed
cealed concealed weapons and there will not be
so great a loss of life and limb as is
now true. Booker T. Washington,

A GIRL'S WILD MIDNIGHT RIDE
To warn people of a fearful forest
fire in the Catskills a young girl rode
horseback at midnight and saved many
lives. Her deed was glorious but lives
are often saved by Dr. King's New
Discovery in curing lung trouble,
coughs and colds, which might have
ended in consumption or pneumonia.
"It cured me of a dreadful cough and
lung disease," writes AV. R. Patterson,
Wellington, Texas, "after four in our
family had died with consumption,
and I gained 87 pounds." Nothing so
sure and safe for all throat and lung
troubles. Price 50c and $1. Trial
bottle free. Guaranteed by Tydings &

"I was ashamed of my face," writes
Miss Pickard of North Carolina. "It
was all full of pimples and scars, but
after using D. D. D. Prescription for
Kczema I can say that now there is
no sign of that Kczema and that was
three years ago."
This is but one of thousands of cases
In which D. D. D. has simply washed
away the skin trouble. D. IX D.
cleanses the skin of the perms of Kc Kczema,

diseases; stops the itch instantly, and
when used with D. D. D. soap the cures
seem to be permanent. Nothing like
