At the banquets of the eighteenth
century the man who carved needed
to know words as well as the use of
knives. Venison he "broached," the
pheasant he "allayed," the rabbit and

was "lifting" him and the crane under
his knife was being "dsplayed." The
peacock was "disfigured."
As a variation from the abandoned
farm idea the Vermont Commissioner
of Agriculture has prepared an "avail
able farm booklet" Including a list of
farms, apparently supplied by the real
estate agencies. Judging by the
prices and descriptions, some might
very well have been described as
abandoned but a great many are plain
ly first class in price, declares the
American Cultivator. Prices of Ver
mont farms are supposed to have ad
vanced during recent years, but the
range of price here given shows that
there are many cheap farms still on
sale in Vermont. As for instance,
twenty-five acres with a quantity of
spruce lumber, fair buildings, 4 1-2
miles from Barre, price ?500. Anoth
er farm in East Montpelier with a
good house but poor barns and 126
acres of land,' advertised to keep
twelve cows and team, is also held at
only $500. Soms of the best bar
gains offered appear to be in the line
? of higher priced farms, which accord
ing to the description contain amply
enough lumber and wood to pay for
the farm. A study of the booklet
gives thc impression that there are
still plenty of bargains In New Eng
land farm property.

To Show the Wcrld Progress of
A national exposition that will,
through every style of exhibit,
.brougnt from every part of the coun
ty, demonstiate the industrial, agri
cultural and educational progress ol
the Negro since emancipation, is thc
project wherewith Prott^sor R. R
Wright, principal of the (JOv rgia State
Industrial College for Negroes,
ai Savannah, would celebrate the 50tli
anniveisary of emancipation in 15)13
Professor Wright has just retiirnoci
from a S.UOOinale tour of the country
during the couise of which he tested
the sentiment reguiding the cxposi
tion of prominent leaders of th<j race
He spent several hours in Atlanta
With every element of the Negrc
population, Professor Wright says, the
idea advanced by himself is universal
ly popular. Educators, preachers
farmers and business men generally
view the proposed exposition as i
means of spicading beiore the work
, what the Negro has done since becom
lng hi'j own master, and what ho is
capable of accomplishing, regardini
advancement achieved as earnest foi
Recently at Louisville, Hooker T
Washington enthusiastically endorsee
the proposal, and it is an accept?e
conclusion that Negroes, irrespectivi
of location or vocation, will give the!
"Logically, of course," said Profes
.soi* Wright, "an exposition ot thl
tharacter and significance wouid ?><

lanta, New Orleans, or some othe
repiesentative modem city will be sc
lected as the site. 1 am particular!;
anxious, also, that the federal goverr

hopeful of success in this direction.
Proiessor Wright is president o
the National Teachers' Asosciatior
which held its seventh annual sessioi
in Asheville, N. C., June 22, whe:
the idea of lUe racial exposition wa
unqualifiedly endorsed. Other rep?
senlative bedies have extended th
movement their ?anction.
"We want to obliteiate," said Pro:
Wright, "the old hitler association

emancipation celebrations and the er
lo which emancipation gave birth.
"It is our plan to strip the occi
sion on its flliieth anniversary of a

wrought toward his own salvatioi
and what he is capable further of o

The Professional Negro.
"I huve no use for n professional
Negro, the one who.mak^ Ids way by
being a Negro. 1 have no more use
for him than I have for a professional
Irishman or a professional German or
a professional Methodist. I am no
special friend to the Negro and I have
no faith in a man who claims to' 'Je.
I bplievR in low and order. I believe
in the law being meted out to all men
and races alike and this is ray special
friendship to all races and nations?1
These strong words fell from "tho
lips of the Governor of Kentucky, Au
gustus Ii. Wilson, as he welcomed the
National Negro Business Lejague to
Louisville last week. Governor Wilson
besides being a republican and a Har
vard mun is a brave man. He is ono
of tho new school of southerners, sin
cerely interested in the future of the
Negro, because lie is Interested in tho
future of tlie south and ?be future of
America. His type of southerner's
friendship is vital for the Negro's fu
ture and in a large measure responsi
ble for his progress ut present. His
admirable words ure worthy of the
calm consideration of every Negro.
The professional Negro like the pro
fessional Irishman and the profession
al Methodist is passing. That Negro
who traded and throve in days gone
by on Negro emotionalism and preju
dice has been driven to the outside
of work. Thc grip sack politician
was in turn supplanted by the "intel
lectual" problem-solve who had his
rendezvous at Boston. But both were
professional Negroes and of both the
race has had good riddance. The race
has learned that neither legislation
nor agitation .but that patient and
persistent effort in all directions will
solve his problem. The Negro
throughout this country needs no
special friends, but defender of law
and order. He needs the opportunity
to work out his own existence as all
other Americans and then to be pro
tected only aud as ail other Ameri
cans.- New York Age.
