that we owe to our homes, to our families
to our fellow men, to our God, and we must
recognize our debt to the nation as well. —
Rev. N. W, Stroup, Methodist, Cleveland,
Not a Mere Animal.— Man is not a
mere animal and hence to be supplied with
food and clothing and a home is not the
whole of education. His mental faculties,
too, must be perfect—his mind, his imagi
nation, his memory—they must be so train
ed as to respond freely and actively to the
demands of social intercourse; they must be
made fit instruments to perform the num
berless duties that every calling in life
brings with it.- Rev. Charles Trinkans,
Roman Catholic, Washington, D. C.
Divine Laws.— The man who does not
glorify God owes the present an apology
and the future an answer. God has fol
lowed us with loving interest through many
steps and stages. Down through the whole
mysterious realm of origin it was divinity
that shaped our end. All laws are divine
in origin; all gifts of genius are divine; all
measures or degrees of talent are divine.
There is a chapter in each one's history
that is never opened, but no man can ever
approach the everlasting concealments of
the human origin.—Rev. W. A. Lampert,
Methodist, Pasadena, Cal.
The Individual Man.— Man is an in
dividual, a person. He is individually and
solely accountable for his life and actions.
He must bear his own burden, and in re
spect of the phase of his being, he shall
stand or fall alone. But this is not the
whole truth concerning man. Man is a
part of the universe. In particular he is a
part or member of one of the orders of cre
ation—the order of humanity. He was
born into it. He owes his being to it. He
is bound to it by ties which cannot be bro
ken without loss to himself and to the or
der from whence he came.—Rev. R. M.
Blackburn, Presbyterian, Reading, Pa.
High School Meet.
On May 10-11 representatives from
thirty accredited high schools of both East
ern and Western Washington, will meet in
Pullman, wher they will participate in the
Interscholastic Contests, given under the
auspices of the Washington State College
each year. The following institutions are
expected to send representatives. The
high schools at Aberdeen, Bellingham, Cen
tralia. Clarkston. Coif ax, Davenporl, Day
ton, Ellesburg, Everett, Garfield, Golden
dale, Lewiston, North Yakima, Oakesdale,
Olympia, Palouse, Pomeroy, Prosser, Ritz
ville, Seattle, Spokane, Sprague, Sunny
side, Tacoma, Walla Walla, Waterville and
Wenatchee. Waitsburg, Washington will
have both her academy and high school
Correspondence received from the high
schools by Prof. Charles Timblin, chairman
of the committee in charge, indicates that
the attendance in visitors and contestants
this year will nearly double the attendance
of last year, or the previous year. The
Spokane high school expects to send four
hundred, including visitors and athletes,
THE SEATTLE REPUBLICAN
and smaller towns are sending in propor
tionately large estimate of the number of
visitors and athletes they expect to send.
Subscriptions for the conduct of the meet
to the amount of $1,000 have been raised
among the students and faculty of the Col
lege and business men of Pullman. This
amount added to the gate receipts which,
judging from the past two years, will be
nearly $1,500, will be spent by the com
mittee for trophies and medals, and in pay
ing incidental expenses of the meet.
Most notable among the trophies to be
awarded are the big McCroskey cup, which
will be given to the school making the
highest number of points in the meet, and
will be retained by the school winning it
three times successively; the J. L. Harris
cup, which will be given to that Washing
ton high school having had no more than
two-hundred pupils in 1905-1906, which
wins the most points in the contest; a spec
ial silver medal to be given to that individ
ual making the highest number of points
in the Athletic Contest; a crimson and gray
banner to be awarded to that school win
ning the McCrosky cup; and a similar ban
ner to be awarded to the school winning
first place in the Public Speaking Contest.
The Negroes of Arkansas paid into the
state treasury last year for real and per
sonal property tax $260,000 besides $50,000
poll tax making a total of $310,000 paid
the state treasury by Negroes as taxes for
the year 1906. According to the census
bureau at Washington, D. C, the Negroes
of Arkansas own $30,000,000 worth of
property. This vast sum of money in
property values does not represent his cash,
bank and savings accounts. We fail to see
in these figures the worthless, shiftless side
of the Negro problem. Slowly, but surely
the Negroes of Arkansas are solving their
own problem with cash, bank accounts and
property. If they can accomplish so much
in 40 years who can tell in 40 more years
what the harvest will be? God and God
alone can answer this question.
