The Peabody Fund.
1\ .> We doubt very much whether
f Mr. Peabody would have left his
millions just in the manner he
# did in 1866 if he could have fore
seen the ma?ner in which it has
been handled. Not that the fund
has'nt been honestly used but
rather the manne?. Although
given for the help of the entire
population of the South, the Ne
gro, when the totals are consid
ered, has been treated as though
he was not a large part of that
population. Furthermore there
seems to have been certain mem
bers of the board whose chief
object was to see just what plans
they could carry through that
would give as little to the Negro
If there is any part of the
South's population that needed
the money of this Yankee philan
thropist, it certainly is the Ne
gro. There is not a real normal
school in the whole South for
the training of colored teachers
maintained by any of the States,
and yet that board never attemp
ted to establish one. The idea
seems seems to prevail that the
Negro can just teach any how.
But it is different when it comes
to other races, training of the
best is necessary. And now there
is a quarrel in South Carolina ov
er this good yankee's money
?tat Wi Carolina doesn't think'she
Civilisation upheld in Missis
A few days ago, an innocent
Negro was lynched in that law
less State named Mississippi.
The News Dispatch for once said
that the Negro "would not con
fess." That was certainly won
derful, for who ever heard of
a lynching before when the vic
tim did not "confessf"
The mob, which by the way
seems to be the agency whereby
civilization is now taught and up
held, was not satisfied, it want
ed a Negro who would confess
The victim was found and
promptly bound to an, iron pump
in the court yard. Wood, well
saturated with kerosene, was
piled around him, a lighted match
applied and a thousand or more
gentle, refined, cultured and re
ligious spectators got a first class
demonstration in the useful arti
of roasting. The officers of the
law were interesting observers,
they know who the chief cooks
were for there was no attempt
at disguise* No, nothing will be
done; the coroner's jury will
promptly find a verdict of "death
caused by parties unknown to
Of course that's all, must not j
civilization be upheld? And is
not that the way to do it? Court I
houses are not made for any such j
thing as that. That's old fash- j
ion, the mob is the latest thing. j
Furthermore how can mobs learn
to roast such high priced meats
as beef, pork, lamb, etc, if they
occasionally cannot practice on
such cheap things as "niggers?"
But Let the juries acquit; have
they power to heal the field's
black scorch? Can they banish
memory of the wild-beast-mad
dened hour and the glare of the
Obscene torch? Nay verily.
The ghost of the slayer slain,
escaping the fagot and cord,
shall darken the face of the day;
The verdict of man is in vain
Hearken the voice of the Lord,
"I will repay."
The Black Touch.
Legend tells us of a king who
was so endowed that everything
he touched turned to gold. Per
haps in many years to come,
there may be a legend handed
down to the generations yet to
be telling of a people who once
lived in a place called America
which had what might be call the
Black Touch. The peculiarity of
the touch is that anyone not of
that race coming in contact with
it was forever undone.
That certainly seems to be the
case now. There is no white
man in the State today who is in
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
of the "Black Touch."
Most every legislator takes
pains to see that he speaks
and votes so that in after years
the ghost of this spectre does
not rise up against him. Es
pecially will this be done now
because of the character of the
last campaign for governorship.
It is really amusing to see just
how a recommendation for a lit
tle money for Negro education
is couched, it seems that every
line is all but an apology, Oh,
if such conditions did not exist!
How good would it be if things
could just go on their merits.
Who wou\d not feel better? Who
would not say that it would be
better for all concerned? May
the power of the "Black Touch"
soon pass away and be forgotten.
The "Hotel Jackson."
While it is not our policy to ad
vertise individuals in these col
umns, yet we must by way of
commendation call attention to
this splendid enterprise. It has
long been a reproach to the col
ored population of this city that
none seem to have business sa
gacity enough to open up a clean
. up-to-date place where tra velo 'S
No '.onger ?oes'-web reproach lie
for Mr. and Mrs. Jackson have
provided a place where the most
exacting may be satisfied. NpT
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 Ithe
service therein is first class in
every particular. Now, let the
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
trial Printing Company is turn
ing out a number of very hand
some jobs. People who know
good printing when they see it,
ask: 4 'What white office did that
work?" When informed that it
was done by colored men, there
joinder usually isthat "the work
does not look like that done by
Negroes." We are it when it
comes to job printing. Try us

ABRAHAM WAS VERY RICH.
Genesis 13:1-18-Feb. 23.
"The Meaning of Jehovah, ii makcth rich, amt
Uc addcth no narrow therewith."-Proverbs
10.-ti lt. V.
CHE l?ible teaches (hat tbere are
uot many rich, great wise or
learned, who enjoy the Loni's
special favor, but chiefly the
poor of this world, rich In faith. Bul
whoever concludes from this thal God
is prejudiced against the rich, or that
all the rich are iniquitous and have
gained their wealth through fraud,
errs grievously. God ls uo respecter
of persons. Ills estimation is from !
the standpoint of the heart There are
both good aud bad rich men, just as
there are both good and bad poor.
Abraham, though Terah'u youngest
son, at the death of his father doubt

possessions. Including the share of

half-sister. Some JSF\

est sou of Torah.
After Abraham had accepted the Di
vine call and become a sojourner in
Canaan, his flocks and herds increased
greatly, under (Jud's blessing. Others
of God's servants in the past were
greatly blessed with riches; foi in
stance. Job. Hut the blessing or the
Lord very rarely makes wealthy Ills
saintly people during Mils Gospel Age
It may be asked. Why this change
in God's dealings? The reply of the
Scriptures ls that up to the time of
Christ. God's blessings were to tuen as
men; but since then God's saints an*
"New Creatures In Christ." The terms
of discipleship are that they sacrifice
their claims to all earthly riches, and
blessings, to become heirs of God and
Joint-heirs with Jesus Christ to the
Heavenly inheritance. God dealt with
Abraham as a friend and promised him
earthly blessings. But He accepts Je
sus and His followers as BONA, ami
promises them Heavenly things.
Abraham's Friends Not Joint-Heirs.
Lot wns a mau nearly Abraham's
age. the son of Haran. God did not
call Lot, nor any other of Abraham's
relatives, but merely himself, to he the
recipient of the promises. This did not
hinder Lot from being with his uncle,
but permitted him to share the bless
ingB of Divine providence, which gu'.d
ed Abraham's affairs. Slmllarijw the
spiritual children of Abraham hl3n? ?ve

of spiritual influence through assort:*
tion with them.
These spiritual children of Abraham.
Christ and His consecrated followers,
are particularly specified as the heirs
of the A bra ha mic Promise. (Gala
tians 3:29.) They All have a faith and
a spirit of obedience similar to Abra
ham's. Jesus is their Head, as well as
their Redeemer; and they become His
disciples by a covenant of sacrifice,
similar to His own.
Riches Often Bring Trouble.
God's blessing upon Abraham, shared
by Lot. brought strife between their
servants. Abraham perceived that the
two families had better part Lot as
sented. Abraham gave him his choice
of country, and Lot chose the most fer
tile-the Plain of Sodom. Lot made
bis home In Sodom, while bis flocks
and herds were pastured in the region
Doubtless Lot's wife had to do with
the choice. The fnmlly lived there
three years The riches of the country
had a debasing
effect upon the

she lost her life
Abraham fixed his heart upon God's
promises, which appertaine to the lu
ture life. Sarah was a real helpmate
and co-labored faithfully with him for
their accomplishment In these two
families, both well Intentioned, we see
Illustrated the difference between seek
lng chiefly the Divine approval and
seeking chiefly earthly welfare.
Many Christian people today make
mistakes similar to Lot's. The/ allow
conflicting earthly Interests io sen.
arate them from God's favor. Thus
they Involve themselves and their fain
j Hies in the snare of the wicked. The
j Master's advice should be remembered
-"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God
and lils righteousness."
God's Blessing Makes Rich.
Whoever has God's blessing is rich
indeed, regardless of the amount ?>l
earthly prosperity. Those whom thc
Lord makes rich with His promises
and His favor have the Joy which otb
ers vainly seek. These true riches arc
obtainable by all who learn of God's
favor In Jesus Christ
God's Covenant with Abraham wai
not Heavenly, but earthly, and to ar
earthly people. But the seed is two
fold-an earthly and a Heavenly Recd
? The promises of God appertaining fi
these two seeds are.very difieren. ::?
