YOUTH AND AGE.
When hearts are young and lightsome.
The road is straight and clear,
And round about on every side
How bright all things appear !
The dullest music charms us then,
We laugh and know not why ;
The very flowers upon our path, t
They look too bright to die.
When hearts are old and weary.
The road is twisted sore,
And there is little to be seen 1
Beyond our cottage door ;
The flowers we thought would never 1
Lie dead upon the sod ;
And then we sigh for peace and rest
Within the arms of God.

ADDRESS BY REV. DR. HAYGCOD.
Dr. Haygood was received with
the Chautauqua salute, and coming
forward took two of the toy flags,
from the stand and held them in
his hand, which act was greeted
with rounds of applause, He said :
I am glad that Georgia is on that t
flag, [Applause.] I have seen the t
day that I would have died under t
the oMier, and if you cannot take 1
me into the Union on that basis,, #
count me a heathen and publican.
There are many differences and
yet many resemblances. I saw out I
there-and I will not look that way i
now-a woman crowned with the g
glory of gray hairs. When the first i
battle-song was sung, she quivered c
with memories, the tears coursed I
down her. cheeks, Johnny did not t
come marching home to her. She
was strangely like a mother who t
lives in my town, abopt the same r
age, with one boy shot through the
head on the Potomac, the other I
buried from a hospital in Richmond. s
Both of these women love God and s
the Lord Jesus Christ, and I know
would help one another and love I
each other. So we are alike as t
to many things, in our heart-aches (
and griefs . t
I am very much obliged to the s
Professor and these admirable sin- 1
gers for trying to sing a reb'el war- e
song. They can't do it. [Ap
plause.] But if there were a few of I
Stonewall Jackson's men here and
it was the year 1862, they could1
sing it. But we don't sing it now. t
I have not tried to sing that song1
or any other army hymn in a longc
time, hardly since Appomattox. 1
But nobody who has got the heartC
of a man in him will ask me to-day
to be ashamed that I did sing them
once, [Applause.] But we do t
not sing them now. We have .
buried there for the most part with I
that flag we followed for four long
years fighting for what we believed I
was the right thing. I said th,ere 1
are also differences. 0, if we c9914
put ourselves in each other's
places ! Sometimes when I read t
your papers that don't understand i
us, or read our papers that don't 1
understand you, I am reminde4 of
a short speech made by an old <
Frenchrna~n in Atlanta. We had
been organising horne guards and
made him surgeon. One night we]
had a meeting and called on himn
for a speech. He said.i
"Fellow-citizens, I agi in one bad<
fix to make a speech, fdr last night<
a storm come and blow down my
stable, and soigie one steal my bug
gy and my cow run away. I tell
you we must whip this fight. I
have been in my own country in
two revolutions; in one I was the 1
conqueror and in the other I was
the egnqutered. There is a great]
deal of difference in those two leetle
lettares, d and r."
When the wise men and women]
of the North have learned the diffe
rence between the two letters, D
and R, we will not need to explain
to each other. There will be so
many grounds for patience, and
toleration, and broad manliness,i
that by that time we will forget the
war, except in the good things that 4
in the providence of God it broughta
to this whole country. [Applause.) ]
I will tell you how I do my chil
dren I do not know whether I
represent a class, for I never asked.
I teach them that this flag repre
sents our Union that is God's gift
to us, that is worth dying f<r. Then
if they ask me who Robert Lee or 1
Stonewall Jackson was, what we
mean in April when we strew
fowers over the humble graves of
our dead soldiers, I tell them who]
they were, that they were brave, I
ttrue men. I do not teachimy chil- I
dren to despise their kindred who
fought and died. You would hate I
me if I did. [Applause.]i
IHardly anybod is mad now]
about this matter. [Lughter) We I

to this people. It could not have
been done with a' divided union.

Divine Providence. But now,
after all that God has done in set

can go on, working out by his great
help the noblest problem ever
given to a civilized nation in this

of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the

THE NEGRO PROuLEM.
FROM THE STAiDPOINT Og A COL
ORED AND EX-CONGRESSMAN.
From the Chicago Inter-Ocean.
Bishop R. H. Cain, ex-Congress-,
man from South Carolina delivered
an eloquent lecture last night
at Bethel Methodist Episcopal
Church on "The Negro Problem."
The Bishop presented many of the
characteristics of his race in this
lecture in such a ridiculous light
that the audience laughed con
The following is the substance er
his remarks: 9
I regard it as essential to the ne
gro that he shall seek to establish
his race, his quota of dignity
among the nations of the earth.
He has a problem, a place, a dig
nity. It belongs to him per se. It
belongs to each nation to have a
problem of its own. All nations
should have an idea to make their
race work up to. I believe ther
are distinctive places in g94u
economy, Nations of men are dis
tinctive in place and complex in,
their dispositions. All nations have
clannishness. The Scotch, the Irish,
the French are clannish, and we
have peculiarities among ourselves.
The negro problem is distinctive
and peculiar. The German has a
problem of his own-the English,
the French have theirs.
HOW THEY CAME HERE.
The Europeans came to this cogn
try knowing sornething of the arts
.somne pf the European nations
camne highly cultured-but the ne
gro came to this country unlike
them. He came chained, outraged,
wronged-a crouching slave chain
ed to everything that pertains to
manhood, chained to everything
that pertains to womanhood. He
was chained 250 years.
There seemed to be no sunlight
no beacon light to cheer him on
He was made the galley slave. The
school was closed to him. Educa
tion~ was a sealed book. The
church was closed against him.
Thus, for 250 years this face 'wa
solving the problem of the negro.
Yet with all of this he has thriven.
There was not bondage enough in
the system to crush out all the
manhood of the negro man-not
bond1age enough to crush out all
the womanhood of the' negro wo
man. Simultaneously with the tramp
of the warriors he has emerged from
The South found him an integral
part of the Government. I find
him as I find all other nations,
bringing wealth and power to the
country. Democrats and Repub
lieans are in fierce contests as to
to w'.o shall have the negro's vote.
He is becoming the balance-wheel,
as it were, in the politics of the
country. The same is true in the
financial and the commercial rela
tions of the world. It seems the
army could not conquer the South
until the negro had put his big
black foot into it, if you please.
He had become a warrior and a
sailor before the nation acknowl
edged him as an integral part of it.
The German, the Scandinavian and
every nation, what not, are part of
it, and it could not be a true mon
grel nation without the negro. You
say it was a great blessing to come
here; we learned the arts which we
could not in Africa. Ah ! we never
learned to lie till we came here.
We did not steal. You could drop
your gold dust anywhere and no
BLACKS VS. WHITE.
Professor Gillman in the Popular
Scieac Moantuy says ha in afraid
the negro will over-top e white
man in this country; th in 1990
at the present rate of in ase of
each race, the two will sta 190,
000,000 blacks and 160, ,000
whites. The Irishman comet here
with a shilalah and soon lays it 'down
for the shovel and the hoe. The
Frenchman comes with police lit
erature. They all have something
to bring. But they change and be
come Americans. The great ques
tion is how to make Americans
stand out in bold relief. I like the
Americans. I like the sturdy tramp
of the German. A good deal is
said of him, but the German keeps
on taking sourkraut and succeed
ing. I like the Chinamen with his
whing, whang, whung. I like the
negro, for he makes the cotton and
the sugar if you please. You could
not have made the Englishmen do
cile-and Paddy would have turn
ed the field upside down if you had
tried to make a slave of him.
The redeeming quality in the ne
gro character is his love of the
right. You do not know one negro
who struck his mistress during the
war. Yet the slaves knew as much
about the problem as did General
Lee. They knew that the whites
were fighting to keep them in
slavery. I thank God to-day that
my race were so true to their
The negro is coming in the
South. He is becoming wealthy,
refined, a philosopher. He has not
yet called into question the exis
tence of God. He is not so big a
fool. He has had a practical dem
Dnstration of His existence, He
knew nowhere to go, If he looked
oo the right there was but a lash,
oo the left a rod. The old lady who
mung, "Come near, dear chanot,"
hoped to ride away from slavery in
that chariot. It was her only hope,
anything to get away.
THE NEGRO'S DESTINY.
The negro has a destiny as
far-reaching, as deep-sounding, and
ap as high as any other race of
men. The money spent in our ed
ication and for us is simply the
restoration of some money stolen
from us. The negro must educate
iimself, The white man cannot
!ducate the negro. . To educate
you must get down into the social
structure. The negro has not be
gun to think for himselt. He is
fddling away and dancing away
and picnicing, and some of them
don't own the sand in their shoes.
We throw away our money. We
have not got to go where we under
stand relationships. The aegro
dresses himself, ppts a cigar in his
mouth, and stand6 on the corner,
arms akimbo, thinking he is a fine
gentleman, and perhaps has a four
weeks' unpaid board bill.
You complain that you don't
have a chance. If I wanted to be
reporter, I would not ask these men
for a chance. I would go down to
that table and write. I don't think
our black faces a hindrance. The
cars go just the same. The nego
must cope and gttin his position
in the body social, in the body
politic. I am alarmed it the in
orease of the negro population my
self. There isn't a log cabin in the
South but can turn out seven, some
fifteen, all rollicking, "sassy." The
whites don't know how to stop it.
It can't be stopped. -God has for
the negro race a destiny. He is to
occupy all the tropies. The white
can't~ stand it down there. When
the sun goes down he goes out.
We inust educate, and when the
negro problem is -solved the negro
will take his place among the na
tions of the world, knowing he has
solved the problem himself.
HER FIRST RAILWAY RIDE.
THE EXPERIENCE OF AN INEXPERI
ENCED YOUNG WOMAN IN IDAHO.
A young lady well known on
Wood river, who was born and
raised in Idaho and who had never
seen a steamboat or railway car,
recently left for a trip south, and
much interest was expressed here
by her friends as to first impres
sions of the outer world. She al
ways evinced such an even demea
nor that many friends believed she
would pass as an old traveler, but a
letter just received from her escort
proves that a young lady, even one
of Idaho's fairest, and one that can
calmly regard the wild Indian on
the warpath, is unequal to the oc
casion of calmly passing through the
surprises of modern progress.
She became skittish at the ap
proach of the evening lightning ex
press, with its great bull's-eye head
light, and actually pranced when
the train neared the depot and blew
a long, shrill whistle. Her friends
could not quiet her or coax her, and
finally, rather than be left, they
blindfolded the young lady and by
main force landed her safely on the
train. The letter remarks it was
fortunate the windows were so small,
as she frequently attempted to get
out, and could not be convinced
that the telegraph poles, the hills
and houses were not all whirling
past her as she sat in the car, and
every time they crossed a bridge she
shut her eyes, believing the cars
were flying in the air across the
A HOG STORY.
It was at the beginning of the
war. His regiment was marching
through Louisiana by forced
marches; for it is a solemn matter
of fact that the first troops that
went out from Texas were in very
much of a haurry, because they
feared that the war would be over
before they could reach the tented
field. They were afraid that the
Virginians would swindle them out
of their share of glory in taking
Washington. While the Northern
people were talking about a ninety
days' war, the Texans thought it
it hardly worth while to start odt,
as the war would be over before
they could get a chance to strike a
blow. But to the story, which is
best given in the language of the
newspaper man himself:
"Just before dark one afternoon,
we passed a comfortable looking
farm-honse, the owner of which was
busily engaged, with a very anxious
expression of countenance and a
long pole, in driving a number of
pigs under the house. The im
pression that forced itself upon us,
on observing this conduct was
that he thought the pigs would be
safer and last longer, as far as his
selfish wants were concerned, un
der his immediate supervision, than
in any place where we could get at
them. One of my comrades who
was trudging along by my side,
Bob Beasley, a proud, high-strung,
sensitive fellow, but as honest,
nevertheless, as the day is long,
was stung to the quick by the ao
tion of the farmer; and ia;rning to
me, Bob said, "That is an insult to
our sacred cause and to every hon
est man in the regiment. Let us
resent it. Let as teach this man to
respect us. Let's go back there tA
night and steal one of his darns
old hogs, to show him that we
won't stand any of his sinuations."
-I saw that Bob's feelings were
hurt by the ungenerous conduct of
the rustic and endeavored to calm
him down but in vain. His blood
was up. I agreed to assist him in
wiping out the insult, on condition
that I should have one-half of the
pork. We camped a few miles from
the house, and that night, although
we were very tired, we cheerfully
trudged back to the house where
we had seen the farmer trying to
steal the pigs from us. We quietly
called a councilofwar and agreed up
on a campaign plan, It was thought
best not to make any unnecessary
noise, as It might induce the far
mer to come out and still further
irritate us. All we really wanted
was the hog. Bob Beasley was to
crawl through the hole under
the house and drive the hogs
out, because he was more familar
with the habit of hogs than I was.
I was to assume an offensive posi
tion, with a club, at the outside of
the hole, and as soon as a hog
came out I was to stun him
witha blow, after whiqhhe was to
be despatched and carried to cap.
Bob crawled in on all-fours and
pretty soon I heard a hog scramb
ling toward the hole. I drew back
my club; and just as the porker
came through the hole I gave him a
tremendous blow. Bob Beasley
gave a grunt for he was the hog.
I had only dislocated -his shoulder
instead of knocking his brains out.
The farmer, it seems, had added in
sult to injury by removing his hogs
from under the house. He did not
thnk they were safe even there.
"hBob expressed himself very for
cibly. He used language to me
which no soldier should use to a
comrade. He was evidently much
disappointed at not finding the hogs
under the house. In the excite
ment of the moment I spoke em
phatically in a low tone of voice of
what I thought of the conduct of
