O R O A. IN
AYashington being a cosmopoli
tan city and the citizens being con
genial, all newcomers of any noto
riety are admitted to the social
circle. People in good standing
from the "states, are often surprised
on arriving in the city to find
some folks, from the states r town in
which they live who are not anything
at home, taking the lead in the col
ored society. The persons who are
attempting to rnn society would
no doubt like to establish a blue
vein society iu this city as a cer
tain class had in certain parts ol
Ohio. The white people of superi
or intelligence coudemu this class
of Negroes. Social entertainments
given by the better class of colored
people in this city are cosmopoli
tan in their character, except a
narrow contracted class whose pre
judices are greater than their in
telligence. The Monday night lit
erary is a cast organization. There
is more intelligence excluded than
there is in the association. Some
few doctors who belong to it, re
ceive their support from tho poorer
class of Negroes. There, are a few
holding clerkships who belong
to the Monday night literary. Mes
sengers, watchmen and laborers
are excluded. It is on the order of
the Lotus club.
An amusiug incident happened
one time at one of the meetings of
this club, which is very ludicrous
A gentleman, who has a white la
dy for his wife and a doctor by pro
fession, escorted a lady to one of
these meetings and he says that he
was insulted by the host because
he asked for cream the second time.
There are a few who will
states that Mr. Rounds will prob
ably resign the office of Public
Printer in a few days. Let us
hope so. Free, Press. "

on New Year's day, bec-iuse they
have no desire to meet a few objec
tionable upstarts.. There is anoth
er class that society has made fools
of and another that has made a
fool of society. Parties, card par
ties and receptions are often given
by some to gain admission to socie
ty. Another class of people are
made to believe that, unless a per
son is always invited out heis not of
a society class. This is often among
the more ignorant class of the
Washington society or a chiss that
has been admitted to the social cir

class. This class will dress if they
have to go without eating. The
greatest fuss and empty show will
be found among that class of peo
ple who claim superiority over an
other class and who come from the
lowest elements or society. It is
this class that does so much dis

Dear Lou: I have been sick
for the last week, so much so, that
I have been uuable to write you.
The girls are very uneasy as to
who the trustees of the schools
will be. There are all kinds of
conjectures in circulation, but as
Mr! Webb isa good ana upright
rnau I am confident that he will
nut appoint an i-biectiona. le man.
Rev. VY alter Brooks is sp k.,-n of
as the successor of Mr. Brooke.
He is a guod man and one against
wnom no objection c in be raised,
except that he is minister. I favor
your selection, Dr. J. R. Francis.
The following named persons have
been recommended to the Com
missioners: Dr. Francis, W. H.
Smith, Reve. Waring, Walter
Brooks and J. H. Smith. I would
also suggest the name of Daniel
Murray. Mr. W. H. Smith has he jn

failure. His appointment would
be very objectionable to the teach
ers and people.
My dear little Miss Daffin will

that Miss Louise Smith is in Den

that the "regulators," or Ka-Klux,

by the trequency with which his

The following letter from a re-
cent issue of the Peoples1 Choice ex
Washington, D. C, July 7, '86.
Miss M. Bond, Secretary Bruce
Literary of Macon, Ga.
Miss Bond: Your valued favor
informing: me that the Macon col
oed literary society had adopted
my name, has been received. I
apprecia e the honor conferred and
tender my thanks therefor, but I
am m re grateful still at the mark
ed indication of the progress of
our people. Literary associations,
.vith their reading rooms and li
braries, not only indicate intellec
tual advancement among us, but
are powerful appliances of im
provement in the knowledge that
any progressive and successful peo
ple must attain.
At an early day I will send a
few volumes for your library.
Wishing abundant success to
the Bruce Literary of Macon.
I am sincerely yours,
B. K. Bruce.
Take your old gold and silver
to J. P. Waddleton's and have it
manufactured into any style of
Jewelry you wish. All work to
order at shortest notice.
