THE NEGRO AS HE STANDS IN
THE MIDST OF MODERN CIVIL
IZATION, AND HIS ENVI
RONMENTS. The Negro minister of the gospel
has a lield to preach and each in,
which reaches from the Atlantic ocean
on the East to the Pacific waters on
the far West, and from the tSrent
likes in the North to the Everglades
of Florida on the South. The harvest
is ripe, ami Ills work Is lo teach an
unfortunate and neglected people who
in the days of clnvery were taught
not to recogul.e the institutions of the
marriage relation, and most of whom
were conceived and brought forth In
Kin. Yes, they were born badly, reared,
and come up without proper train
ing, cither in murals, virtue or In their
relaiions with their fellow man. A
people who for two hundred and fifty
years were taught not to regard tiie
Institution of marriage and who were
encouraged in lusty things of the
world. Their moral and social life
was not regarded the animal of the
i ace was sought to be developed, and
the arts of a Christian civilization
were hidden from the Negro for two
hundred and fifty years. Many of
those who now preach and lecture of
the Negro as a failure, in the days
gone by forty years ago, would preach
to his white hearers: "Repent, be
lieve. and be sound tiion the terms of
To the Negro congregations tho min
ister would often lake for his text
Servants, obey your master and you
will be saved." This deception was
carried on for over seven generations,
but in Ciod s own good time he re
moved the bonds of slavery, and left
g.ooii.iHi ,,f these people in ignorance,
penniless and almost without a hope
in the star of liothlchom. Their lib
eration mew out of a cruel war and
the circumstances naturally caused
thi-lr former owners to take issue with
any movement on the part of the Lin
coln government looking toward their
elevation. The rirst move that called
them together was the Negro minis
ter in the church and Sabbath schools.
The next was the Negro teacher and
they have had charge of the destiny
of the race for nearly forty years.
Have they been faithful to their sta
tion and the piople of whom they
have fashioned to their liken?
'W are constrained to think that
while they have done much to schools,
they could have done far more by a
united effort. Tho minister should
have laid more stress on morality and
Industry the teacher should have
sought to make good readers and good
spellers of his pupils. Has he suc
ceeded on these lines? Wie think not.

LINCOLN INSTITUTE OF TO DAY.
Lincoln ltistiiiiU', which presents
represents tne highest torm fit public
Instruction fur tho Negro youth in Mis
sourl, Is fit Hilled at Jefferson City.
This has been without question thu
most prosperous year In the history
of Lincoln Institute, it compares fav
orably with other institutions of high
er education of this country; ltd Nor
mal ami collegiate departments show
well In the catalogues, hut better at
tho institution In active working op
eration. This institution has been
gradually growing for the last decade,
but it remained for this last year to
eclipse all former records of tho
school. The highest former attend
ance was that of last year, 24'; and
this year, It.'id. This Is due to the re
sult of the wide range of advertise
ment given this year by President It.
V. Alloa, A. M., the efficient and
newly elected president, who has so
ably presided over the Institution this
year. The institution is particularly
fortunate in having such a man of ed
ucation to preside over it. The lioard
of Regents, as well as the students,
appreciated the great amount of good
that was being carried on by him this
year to such aa extent that the He.
gents reelected him for a period of
two years longer. President Allen Is
a man of great sagacity and ceaseless
industry. Lincoln Institute under his
management in the ensuing futirro
years, as it has in this past year, will
continue to rise to the very high ideal
of Its president and will take its place
In th rank with all the leading col
leges in this country. It is right and
proper inat every colored family, es
pecially In this state of Missouri,
should its appreciation for this in
