Thursday March 17, 1904 The Watson Community.

Reed—at his home, on the morning of March 14, Mr. Frank Reed passed peacefully away. With sad and broken hearts, his devoted father, mother, brothers and sisters, and a large company of friends followed the remains to the grave.

Thursday March 17, 1904 Ohio Race Riots. (editorial)

The race riot at Springfield, Ohio, last week was one of the fiercest conflicts that has ever taken place between the blacks and whites. At the same time there was a like disturbance at Tempson, Texas, but the Texas affair was tame when compared to the Ohio trouble, and this again demonstrates the fact that the blacks and whites can never live together on equal footing, theoretical though it may be, in peace and harmony, it also demonstrates the fact again, that it is no matter of geography, of north and south, it further demonstrates the pernicious influence of republican agitation of the race question. Ohio people have shed floods of tears over wrongs inflicted on negroes in the south, yet when it comes to a practical solution of negro outrages, they resort to the bullet, the rope, and the torch, with a cruelty and vengeance, seldom equaled and never excelled in the south. These thing sought to teach the people of the north some valuable lessons, and but for “office blindness” they would.

Thursday March 17, 1904 (editorial)

Dallas lost a lot of sweetness on the desert air last week, trying to get the cattlemens convention for 1905. They also lost wholesale lot of cigars, beer and stronger stuff, but it was no go. Other cities may secure every other kind of plum. Conventions, Colleges, Masonic temples, benevolent and state institutions, but never the Cattlemens Convention. That belongs to Fort Worth, and there is no power able to pluck it out of her hands. And it is nothing more than is just and equitable. It is merely a rendering unto Caesar the things which belong to Caesar. As a Christian when he dies wants to go to heaven, so does a cowman while he is alive want to make pilgrimages to Fort Worth, and it would be the veriest and most wanton cruelty, to exile him to some other city.

Thursday March 17, 1904 Norton Hammack.

At 7:30 A.M. on the 11 inst. the spirit of sweet little Norton Hammack left the fever racked body and wended its way to a home in the mansions above where the dear Savior had prepared a place for it. A sweet little bud born on earth to open a full flower in the garden above where it will ever live. No blighting frost to nip it there. Christ said, “suffer little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” It is sweet to think our darling is a bright angel now. He was so loving and beloved by all, how much we will miss him; yet “not our will, but thine be done.” The little darling was taken with measles on Friday and on the next Friday he left us. May God comfort the sorrowing parents, grandparents and friends. He was born in Arlington, Texas, to his parents, T. R. and Effie Hammack on Jan. 19, 1901. His stay on earth was short, but O, how sweet! His little body was placed in the Oak Lawn Cemetery Friday afternoon—Funeral services at grave by Rev. Little.

Aunt Lydia.
