Convention. Are you going? t?
IT should be entirely out of
order for any citizen, white or
colored to knock Orangeburg.
JN pulling, let us pull alto
gether to make this one of the
best places on earth for both
white and colored-the industri
ous and progressive classes.
THE North Pole discovered by
Dr. Cook ten days ago and then
comes the news that eight or ten
days later.the same North Pole
was discovered by commander,
Peary. Who next?
IT always pays to aevertise. It
will pay better if the advertise
ment is where it can be seen by
all the people, in white papers
.'_wJute people and Negro pa^
pers^for Negro people. Every
merchant -in Orangeb?rg who
wishes colored patronage should
put a'card in this papet_and let
our people know that their trade
is wanted and will be appreciat
ed. Try it and watch results..
THE more than one column ac
count of the North Carolina Mu
tual meeting at Colombia some
little time ago, to be found in
this "issue of the Recorder speaks
for itself. The N. C. Mutuals
are a great concern, they 'do not
do things by halves, We com
mend this great institution to
our people everywhere. The
men at the head ol it are among
the business giants o? the Negro
MORKIS COLL?GE Notes and
the large two column advertise-'
ment of the college, both to" be
seen in this issue of the Record
er wilkbe refreshing information
to the thousands of< friends to
this institution over the State.
The college opens this year on
Sept. ti?th. The President states
that the prospect for a large at
tendance, is assured'. Sixteen
instructors in the facility, men
and women all of Whom are grad
uates from prominent/colleges ol
the country. Many useful
industries are to be taught
this year which, in our opinion,
is a step in the right direction.
Let the friends to Negro educa
tion rally to the support of Mor
ris College and to every other
institution of learning for the
PORjaaore than sixteen years
this paper has made its weekly
visits to thousands of South Car
olinians, some have showed theil
appreciation for it by paying al

NGEBURG, 8. C.
ti Only the other ,day the papers |
told the stbryxof a man who trav*1
?le??jall the way- from Indiat?ai
to Massachusetts to trace. and I
buy back an old family horse
that he had sold a few months
before. Ever since the horse
had been gone, the man's wife
had grieved. Her condition had
finally become such that her
husband gladly paid ? larger
price than he.had received, and
cheerfully bore the cost of an
expensive trip besides, to get
the horse back.
. In the same week New Eng.
land newspapers recorded the
tragic -death of an old man who
was Hviofir. comfortably with a
rrjarried datight?r.in a town near
Boston. The cause ascribed was
?JWlnaf^r th^iarj^; wherfe
hadf spent most of his days, ,
ajbdj ^bicti he1 had left for ? pre- j
s ,u in ably easier existence. ' J ' " . '
j There*also appeared, lately, in
on?'o? the maga^nes. a descrip
tion; of ^he p?th?tic'j l?st act
which mark s tri?' 2.*al abandon-,
merit of i an old farm-the auction
by Which the homely household
utensils that have.'bOr'ne so inti
mate a relation to the home are
distributed among ueighbors to
whom tjiey have no special sig
nificance.. ; . V
Similar things are constantly
occurring.. To any on? with in
sight, they disclose the depth of
sentiment which lies hidden even
In the most unemotional of lives.
For young people, especially,
they are full of significances.
Nothing is more natural than
that a son should say: "Father
is getting too old to live alone
any longer, liie land is all run
3ut, anyway. We might as well
sell tne old place and bring him
lo vj', here with us, where he
can be more comfortable."
It is the beginning of tragedy,
folland is ever so run out that it
loes not produce a harvest of
ii?mories more'precious than the
3est crop of corn it ever raised.
ion can make the old man corn
iorjbable, but-^yon can ? rarely
nake him happy.
The roots of an bid tree go

,h?y draw comes not through
mch obvious tap-roots as food
ind shelter and clothing; but
