i ' ' : : j j , j , ! Randolph Argus: A colored divine from Salisbury was holding a meeting here last week, and during the services he told them he had two songs to sing for them; that every where else he wa3 paid five dollars each for singing them, but because of the friendly relations between the Asheboro negroes he would render the two for five dollars. At once the congregation set to work and raised the money for which they received two fancy : ragtime pieces.
