Negro's Color Solved.
A London dispatch in the Wash
ington Star fey? : Surgeon Major
Charles Woodruff, of the United
States army, has solved the interest
ing puzr.le, "Why is the negro
The answer, roughly summarized,
is that his blackness is bis defense
against the dangers of the sun. Tho
entire question is treated by Major
Woodruff in an exhaustive treatise
published by Messrs. llobman, (lim
ited,) under tho title of "Tho Effects
of Tropical Light "on White Men."
Sun rays are divided into two
classes-long and short. Tho latter
aro dangerous to all persons who are
not defended from them ; the former
j make for heat. To avoid theso dan
gers the pure negro has evolved a
blaok skin and nocturnal habits.
The defensive is an armour of pig
ment just under the outer skin. It
varies in intensity of color from tho
coal blaok negro of the tropics to the
white man of northern latitudes.
The pigment is always there-just
* su?ioient in strength to resist the
danger of different olimes. This ac
counts for the varying colors of dif
ferent races - blaok, red, yellow,
copper, and white. It is only absent
in Albinos-a sign of degeneration,
explains Major Woodruff.
An extreme illustration of the
danger of rays is provided by radium.
It is stated that a single pound of
radium in a room would kill overy
one present by the blasting forces of
its rays. The negro's nocturnal
habits aro rendered necessary by the
conversion of dangerous sun rays
into harmless but uncomfortable heat
rays. This is how Major Woodruff
Htates the facts of the case in this
"The negro is really a nocturnal
animal, like the other black animals
of the tropics. Left to himself he
behaves like thc cat-inclined to
sleep all day, hiding away some
whore, and becomes lively, energetic
and active at night. In the Southern
States the plantation negroes can be
hoard all night long, prowling about,
shouting, singing, courting and
"Their dances, camp?meetings and
household habits are bused on this
nocturnal instinct to hide from the
light even if they are better protec
ted than wc."
The negro's natural armor is only
efficacious against natural heat.
When exposed to artificial heat in a
dark atmosphere tho black skin
ceases to throw off heat and the ne
gro suffers. In a stroke hole, for in
stance, he is usually the first man to
collapse, oven when white men aro
