LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES.
Even in the matter of length of
term Lincoln Institute stands almost
in a class by itself among accredited
schools for the education of the Negro
Here, a complete ten months' term
constitutes the regular scholastic year,
which, with a summer term of seven
weeks, leaves just one month during
which the school is closed and even
then the president is doing a land of
fice business in the matter of official
Many schools for higher as well as
for industrial training are now Se
tember 30th, and from this time on
jiiBt opening. Lincoln Institute opened
for the eiiioliine.i' of students and
organization of classes, Tuesday morn
Ing, September 3rd, while the first
faculty meeting was called for M ou
tlay, September 2. The first day's en
rollment was a record breaker and
the close of the fir it month, September
29, shows over fo'ir hundred students,
while each day brings an additional
number. Another dormitory for girls
could easily be filled and indicates the
wisdom of asking for another building
from the next legislature.
President Allen certainly merits the
high commendation which he receives
locally and from M parts of the coun
try for the enthusiasm, energy and
business acumen which he is throw
ing into the work of making Lincoln
Institute the special pride of both
races in Missouri ami elsewnere.
The sixth annual session ' of the
farmers' convention will be held In
the Institute auditorium on the first
Friday In November. This movement,
inaugurated by President Allen in the
first year of his presidency, should
appeal to all thinking people who
I well in this marvelously fertile agri
cultural district, known ns the Middle
The ownership of land was the
basis of mediaeval feudalism, and we
of to-day are In the midst of a new
feudalism in which the safety of the
Negro depends very largely upon ten
ure of land and knowledge of how it
may add to his material prosperity
and constitute him a producer as well
ns a consumer.
Come one, come all, to the farmers'
convention and help to make it a success.
H. D. EARL.
Mr. II. I). Earl, president of the
Freeman Mining, Milling & Develop
ment company, ia still at the Dunbar
hotel In tins city for a few days, for
the purpose of giving the colored peo
ple of this city a chance to purchase
the Freeman stock nt 10c per share.
Never before in the history of Negro
business enterprise has there been
such a great opportunity for an invest
ment, which 1 believe it is safe to say
that It will make every stockholder In
dependent In a few years. The stock
of course will not sell for that very
long because of the fact that there are
only 0,0i)0 shares in this allotment
and these are almost gone.
No better advice could be given to
the colored people of this country,
than to say to them take in every good
safe Investment that is possible for
you to get into. Remember that no
man ever gets rich by simply "hard
work," and also remember that the
thoHsands and thousands of Anglo-
Saxons who are worth their millions
made It out of stocks.
The property this company owns Is
situated in Gold Mountain District
Nevada, and It Is believed that tin
Freeman company's property Is in the
richest section of the district. It is
clear of all incumbrance, and there Is
a good treasure to develop the mines
Dont delay for you may lose your
opportunity and be sorry of it.
The great mistake made by people
In regard to minlnglnvcstmcnts Is that
they wait too long, and lose their
chances by delay. Some will make
this very mistake in waiting too long
to buy this stock now offered at Idc a
This company has been the subject
of painstaking investigation on the
part of the Western Trade Journal
and fairness impels this statement
that the most searching examination
convinces us that the company offers
the best form of Investment In Nevada
mining stock within our knowledge,
