THE PASSING THRONG Last Sunday morning I picked up a mag azine and tin- lirst thing I saw therein was the cjipiion of a story written by Bdgar Lloyd Hampton, which gave me no particu lar concern for the moment, but, after read ing a few paragraphs of the story, I again glanced at Hie head and at tbe name of the author, and it immediately occurred to me that Edgar Lloyd Hampton was none other than E. L. Hampton, erstwhile Seattle week ly newspaper man, with whom I was per sonally acquainted and with whom I had often exchanged journalistic compliments. I finished the story and thought it unusually clever, yes. far more clever than I had the slightest idea he could write. For some time 1 had lost sight of him, but I have recently learned that he is now devoting his entire lime and talent to story writing and is classed as a literary man. Once, while talking with Hampton, he threatened to break into short story writing but my only reply was a significant grunt and a sickly grin. But he ...

This estab lishment is said to be the largest of its kind in the South and doing the largest business. The general home life of the Negroes in Clarksdale will rank with any town, for many own handsome and well furnished homes. In this instance the white people have encouraged the Negro wonderfully. The grocery concerns of Cole and Goosby stand as a perfect example of the Negro to do a clean cut retail business with fairness to all. At a recent Business League meet ing one of these merchants testified that he was able, by paying his bills promptly and taking advantage of the cash discounts, to sell on the same basis as the white merchant and was in a position at all times to court the most critical examination of his books. He further testified that in business there was no color line, for white wholesalers ex tended them the same consideration as any other race. In t...
