A GOOD EXAMPLE. Strenuous Life of a North Carolina Colored Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 30 November 1901
A GOOD EXAMPLE. Strenuous Life of a North Carolina Colored Woman. It is encouraging to see a person whose life has been successful aud an influence for good under adverse circumstances! Such a persons is Aunt Tillie, a coal-black negress born in slavery, who lives in the mountains of North Carolina, midway between two villages. She has a patronymic, no doubt, but her neighbors have forgotten it, and it does not matter, for there is only one Aunt Tillie in that community. How her education was begun no one knows, but she was able, when she had a family, to teach her boys and girls to read and to print. She possessed no book save the Bible, and used that as a text-book. She knows no other literature, and now, In her later days, when she has plenty of friends who would cheerfully give her books, all have refrained, preferring to leave untouched by lesser literature that fine imagination which employs with ease the words of David aud Isaiah. In course of time her family slipped from her...
A Three-Hours’ Hanging Record. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 30 November 1901
A Three-Hours’ Hanging Record. One very stormy day fourteen years ago, while acting as assistant keeper of Sir Walter Scott’s monument, Edinburgh, I crept on ail fours along the balcony at top of first lauding in order to remove one of the water griffins. Wiien about half-way, a sudden gust of wind sent me off my balance, and my legs went over. Clinging with the tenacity of a tiger, with both hands, to the copestone, I hung in that position three hours, when my cries attracted a couple of gentlemen passing along Princess street, and I was relieved. A space of eighty feet with a spiked railing lay beneath me, and I cannot understand how I was ab.T to hang on . q long.—Scottish Leat,"&gt;-.

THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 30 November 1901
THE ELECTION. Ob Wednesday, December 4th, sthe election to decide the bond question will take place, and we hope lor the interest of the town and community it will carry. As the Record of last week stated very truthfully., the item of insurance, which is certainly an important one, is practically impossible under the present conditions. We need more water for protection against fire, for domestic purposes, for properly sprinkling streets and to accommodate a very large number of applicants who want town water that cannot now besupplied. If this measure would have a tendency to raise the taxes and otheiwise burden the* property owners, then there would be some excuse for opposing its passage, but, such is not by any means the case, the proposed new system with the increased water supply will more than pay for the cost of construction and maintenance as the amounts fall due, then why should anyone interested in the welfare of our town and community oppose the passage? We do not believ...
