As a variation from the abandoned

American Cultivator. Prices of Ver
mont farms are supposed to have ad

range of price here given shows that
there are many cheap 1 .ma 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 120
acres of land, * advertised to keep
twelve cows and team, is also held at
only $500. Some 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 the impression that there are
still plenty of bargains in New Eng
land farm property.

Thc plan was the result of an ex

state that thc results secured from

surrounding the Negro in the south,

To Show the World Progress of
A national exposition that will,
through every style of exhibit,
?brougnt from every part of the coun
ty, demonstrate the industrial, agri
cultural and educational progress of
the Negro since emancipation, 1B the
project wherewith Professor R. R.
Wright, principal of the Georgia State
Industrial ' College for Negroes,
at Savannah, would celebrate the 50th
anni vei sar y of emancipation in 1913.
Professor Wright has just returned
from a 5,000-mile tour of the country
during the com se of which he tested
the sentiment regal ding the exposi
tion of prominent leaders of thc; race.
He speut several hours in Atlanta.
With every element of the Negro
population, Professor Wright says, the
idea advanced by himself ls universal
ly popular. Educators, preachers,
farmers and business men generally
view the proposed exposition as a
means of epieading beiore the world
. what the Negro has done since becom
ing hi3 own master, and what ho is
capable of accomplishing, regarding
advancement achieved as earnest fot
Recently at Louisville, Booker T
Washington enthusiastically endorsed
the proposal, and it is an accepted
conclusion that Negroes, irrespectlvt
of location or vocation, will give theil
"Logically, of course," said Profes
sor Wright, "an exposition of thh
character and significance would ut
held in a southern city. Macon, At
lanta, New Orleans, or some othei
representative modem city will be se
lected as the site. I am particularly
anxious, also, that the federal govern
s ment should participate and I an
hopeful of success in this direction.'
Proles-sor Wright ls president o
the National Tc 41er?' Asosciation
which held its seventh annual sessioi
in Asheville, N. C., .June 22, whei
the idea of tie racial exposition wot
unqualifiedly- endorsed. Other repre
sentative bedies have extended th<
movement their -sanction.
"We want to obliteiaie," said Proi
Wright, "the old bitter association
that in a measure still characterize
emancipation celebrations and the er:
to which ?mancipation gave .birth.
"It is our plan to strip the occo
sion on Its flttleth anniversary of al
political pr prejudicial meaning, au

wrought toward bis own salvatlor

and most understanding friends of th
race, in arranging a worthy diepla
which shall show the world what th
Negro has acutally achieved along mi
terial lines, which shall inspire th

... :The Professional Negro.
"I have nb use for a professional;
Negro, the one who.makv-j'hls way-by'
being a Negro. I have no more i UKO
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 haye
no faith in a man who claims to' -be.
? believe in law and order. I believe
in the law being meted out to all men
and races alike and thte is my special
friendship to all races and nations'.'**
These strong words fell from* "trie
lips of the Governor of Kentucky, Au
gustus E. Wilson, as he welcomed the
National Negro Business League to
Louisville last week. Governor Wilson
besides being a republican and a Har
vard man is a brave man. He is one
of the new school of southerners, sin
cerely interested in the future of tho
Negro, because he ls Interested in the
future of the south aud the 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 at present. His
admirable words are worthy cf 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 dayB gone
by on Negro emotionalism and preju
dice has been driven to the outside
of work. The 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 and as all other Ameri
cans.-New York Age.

It is not known yet when the cases j
will be called, although it is thought
that some of them will be taken up

may not be brought up at the present
term as each of the trials may con
mine several days and it is customary
