Although slavery In the United
States has long been abolished, tbere
are still 3ome reminders of the Insti
tution In the south. It Is doubtful if
the emancipation proclamation of
President Lincoln altogether abolished
the Idea In the minds of some good
old southern families. This was clear
ly demonstrated by the 'will of an
aged woman who died recently In
southern Maryland. Before the war
there had been many slaves In the
family, and at the time of her death
three old black mammies still re
