We clip the following- from the April
~mber of the A. M. E. Review: "I is
then for ih Negra^American to op
whining. If he has grieVta*^ let him
either overcome them or have sufficient
integrity to endure them. Only by
doing either of these can he hope to
command-respect. The day of the sup
pliant is past. That of the man is at
hand. Let the Negro recognize it and
govern himself accordingly." Right,
Dr. Tanner. It has been whine, whine,
whine, until every self respecting color
ed man would rather suffer in silence
than be always begging for redress.
But there is a difference between a
manly dignified stand for what is justly
due us, and a cringing cry for help. The
former is always right. The latter
lowers our manhood.

THE DARKEST HOUR.
For ft period of four years I've been a
victim of a very severe and agonizing
case of Salt Rheum, which affected my
hands to such an extent that they al
most become a burden.
My hand became raw and horrifying,
compelling me to keep it covered all the
I've spent hundreds of dollars for
various preparations, but instead of
benefiting my condition, they all seemed
to stimulate and encourage the progress
of the miserable disease, until I had
about given up all hope.
But thank heaven, "the darkest hour
is just before day,".and I am rejoiced tr
know that a positive cure has been
found, which is known as B. B. B.
Botanic Blood Balm.
My familv all rejoice at its magical
curative powers in giving me relief.
My hand has been cured and resembles
a burnt surface after being healed over,
more than anything else. I has also
cured my two children of a loathsome
form of Itch which had resisted all pre
vious treatment. I refer to any busi
ness house in Moody and, to Thomas
Payne, Druggist, of whom I purchased
the goods. Signed, W. A. BRYANT.
Moody, Texas, April 27,1886.
FLESH SLOUGHING OFF IN PIECES.
For two years I have been confined to
bed with a loathsome form of Blood
Poison, which had about eaten me up,
and I and others bad no hope of a re
covery. For a while I could neither
walk, sit down, nor lie down, only in
misery as my flesh seemed to be falling
off my bones in pieces as big as a hen
egg. My appetite was lost, my bones
ached and pained me, and friends even
shunned me. I used various blood puri
fiers without benefit, and several physi
cians treated me until large sums of
money had been expended, but not one
particle of good did any one give me.
On the 9thofFebruaxy, 1886, Mr.
R. Jackson called to see if I was not
dead, as it was throught I could not en
dure my suffering much longer. He
concluded to try P.. B. B. on me and got
a bottle from Mr. Brockington, at Beau
fort, S.-C, and before one bottle had
been used I commenced gaining strength,
my appetite improved, sores commenced
healing and when two bottles had been
used I was on my feet and walking
around to the astonishment of every
