The Black Touch.
Legend tells us of a king who
was so endowed that everything
I he touched turned to gold. Per
' haps in many years to come,
I there may be a legend handed
! down to the generations yet to
I be telling of a people who once
; lived in a place called America
? which had what might be call the
j Black Touch. The peculiarity of
: the touch is that anyone not of
! that race coming in contact with
i it was forever undone.
; That certainly seems to be the
j case now. There is no white
j man in the State today who is in
i public or semi public life that
dares stand out boldly for abso
lute fair and squire dealing with
the Negro according to the privi
leges of an American citizen.
; There are many who believe i n
! such but they sing it low for fear
I of the "Black Touch."
Most every legislator takes
! pams to see that he speaks
i and votes so that in after years
I the ghost of this spectre does
i not rise up against him. Es
i pecially will this be done now I
i because nf the character of the I
last campaign for governorship. \
It is really amusing to see just ?
; how a recommendation for a lit-1 ?
tie money for Negro education !
j is couched, it seems that every !
i line is all but an apology, Oh, j
I if such conditions did not exist!
How good would it be if things'
? could just go on their merits.
; Who would not feel better? Who
j would not say that it would be
j better for all concerned? May '
j the power of the "Black Touch"
i soon pass away and be forgotten.
The "Hotel Jackson." j
! While it is not our policy toad- j
\ vertise individuals in these col- j
? umns, yet we must by way of
! commendation call attention to
? this splendid enterprise. It has
i long been a reproach to the col
I ored population of this city that
j none seem to have business sa
i gacity enough to open up a clean
j up-+o- la*-?, piare \vhev<" \i.> <
? m: ? ^Sy$)?M??&&
?. ::gei. . ..'. i*i reproach lie
for Mr. and Mrs. Jackson have
provided a place where the most
exacting may be satisfied. Np
where can a better fitted cafe be
found than that run in connec
tion with the hotel. Neat, clean
and well furnished is it and lithe I
service therein is frst class in I
every particular. Now, let the j
colored people in other sections
do likewise and some of the dis
advantages of the colored trav
eler will at least be done away
with. Mr. and Mrs. Tom Jack
son need to be congratuluted.

JOB PRINTING. -The Indus
tria! Printing Company is turn
: ing out a number of very hand
some jobs. People who know
i good printing when they see it,

1 was done by colored men, there
! joinder usually isthat "the work
! does not look like that done by
'Negroes." Weare it when it

Abraham, though Torah's youngest
son, at the death of his father doubt
less inherited all that remained of his
possessions, iucluding the share of
Sarah, Abra

After Abraham had accepted thc I ?I

lt may be asked. Why this elia upi
in (Jod's dealings? The reply of tin
Scriptures is that ii|i lo the time ol
Christ, (Jed's blessings were to men a

Abraham's Friends Not Joint-Heirs.
Lot was a man nearly Abraham^
age. the son of Haran. (Jod did not
call Lot, nor any oilier of Abraham*;
relatives, but merely himself, to be tin

Riches Often Bring Trouble.
Cod's blessing upon Abraham, share*
by Lot, brought strife between thel
servants. Abraham perceived that th
two families had better part Lot ns

of country, and Lot chose the most foi

illustrated the difference between seo

Many Christian people today mal
