Wants to Find His Father.

I would like to locate my father
Bartlett Braxton. We were separat-

mother's name which was Mitchell.
After freedom I lived at Nashville,
Tenn. If any one can give me any
information as to whether my fath-
er is living or dead it will be very
thankfully received. Address
B. B. MITCHELL,
Spring Hill, Kan.
