ne: these was William A. Lan
ot>. ^f Thomasville. N. C., who!
subje,: was "The Spirit of the Pre
em So1th." Mr. Lambeth's arg1
-:e Di est summed up in his on
words: "In the Sout-h of today tI
.hree great movements of the pai
it :e ave appeared in the rise of
industrjai: iiS. in suffrage restrnctionh,
v and in p; u.ar educatiOn.

1. pralsed th^e wvrrk oi Governors Mon
u agne. Acock and other southern
r state.men. But the thene most em
phasized was that of suffrage restric
. tit n. On this subject he said:
.These men. interpreters of the best
a spirit of the South. rejoice also in the
rise -f suffrage restrictions, for they
believe that these restri.i ns are the
master strokes of statesmen fo,r the
unding of the evils of the recon
t struction period. They know that the
South is thus blazing out a new and
o even hazardous path. just as the na
tion is doing in the Philippines, but
d they are determined that the res:ric
d ons sial n1t fail in the accomplish
, ment of their purpose, and that they
shall be applied to both races with
identical justice. They think that the
e spirit which prompted the heart of
America to fit the Filipino for suff
e rage before giving him the ballot
n son-ething which he can now neither
It appreciate nor use-is the same which
;o prompted the heart of the South to
n eliminate the incompetent negro vote,
until that vote can be fitted by educa
I tion for intelligent suffrage. But
whenever a black man, who has been
s disenfranchised by these new laws,
lv comes to possess the qualifications
required for suffrage, they are decided
that he shall be received into the body
ic >olitic and cast his vote along with
the more highly favored. In the spirit
s of Governor Taft in the Philippines,
they have thoughtfully and fervently
committed themselves to the task of
ib making not color, not aristocracy, but
fitness and ability the test of- South
i "These men, who are both interpre
ters and impersonations of the spirit
of the South, rejoice still further in
m education, for they are fully and fin
of ally committed to the policy of edu
in cation, that is, training of hands, mind
and morals, as the one solution of the
e- so-called race problm. They know
that the negro is present in the South
through no fault of his, but because of
m the criminal folly of our fathers.
a- Conscious that this folly has laid on
u them the heaviest responsibility, they
are looking upon the settlement of the
cnegro -problem as the South's share
ac in the great service of the wvorld. In
athe spirit of Governor Aycock and
Governor Montague. they are practi
eing race superiority in deeds, but not
sin wordls: in actions that bless, not in
sentences that irritate.".
Now any one who is at all acquaint
er ed with New England wvill recognize
othe boldness which is required to ut
ter such sentiments on an occasion
like this. But t-he effect wvas surpris
a- ng. Again and again Mr. Lambeth
was~ interruptedl by rounds of applause,
in whinch President Rosevelt wvas of
ten leading. The writer was sitting
I thixn a few- feet of the President,
1e ho sat next to Lieute'nant Govern
rd o Guild. (If Massachusetts. Next
again were Secretary Taft. Justice
e- White. and a number of other men of
national importance. All these men
feotll11we~d the speaker wit-h intense in
terest. frequently commenting among
themselves on his statements.
ad .hen the speech was concluded,
accrdig t th BotonGlobe. Mr.
La mbeth received the greatest ova
I U n ever tendelre~d a Harvard com
emencement speaker. This was due
eprtly t4 commendat ion of his deliv
ery. partly to endorsement of his
views, bhm largely to the fact that
President Roo sevelt was himself of
ferinug p4ersoPnal congratulations, in the
presence of the audience. I have the
best authority for his words at this
ime. First he said: "That's a cork
er!" Again he called Mr. Lambeth to
him and said. "Byv George. that's
where I stand!"
The incident attracted unusual at
:-temti'n. but t.he President's words

s. Robert Adger Law.
Owner Of The Apples.
sHorace Parks, of Russell. some
tm called the sage of Russell, sta
etion agent at that village longer than
any other man in a similiar post in
the employ of t-he B. & A. railroad,
took his little grandson down on his
farm one Sunday afternoon after the
boy had returned from Sunday school
to show him an apple tree that was
then bearing fruit for the first time.
On the way to the orchard the little
fell w asked. "Whom do these fields
aIl( ,ISI)s bel-ong to grandpa?
\\~i. to me," replied he grand
sir." emphatically replied the
bor: "they belong to God..
The grandfather s.aid nothing till
they reached the apple tree, when he
saidl: "Well, my boy. whom does this
tree belong to?"
This was a poser, and for a moment
the boy hesitated, but casting a long
ing look upon the apples, he replied:
WVell. grandpa, tl' tree belongs to
God, but the apples are ours."
In the course of a conversation be
tween two men at the club last night
one of them jokingly remarked that a
man with "clieei:" could get anything
he desired. and he backed up his
statement with the following story:
One of his frie:jis, a merchant, had
advertised for a porter. A big, burly
Irishman applied for the job. After
looking him over the merchant was
satisfied with his appearance. The
only objection was the question of ref
erences and the Irishman did not seem
to have a very good one. "Can you
get no better reference than this?"
asked the merchant. "Oh, yis, sor. I
kin git ye the very best kind of a wan
if that's all ye want, sor, and I don't
have to go far for it either. Me father
and me mother, sor, live down the
sthrate. and they've known me all me
And he landed the job.
John Adams' Toast To His Friend.
When John ',dams was a young
man he was invited to dine with the
court and bar at the house of Judge
Paine, an eminent loyalist, at \Vor
Judge Paine gave as a .oast, "The
King." Some of the Whigs were
about to refuse to drink it. Mr. Adams
whispered to them to comply, : :ng
"We shall have t'he opportunity to
return the compliment."
At length. when John Adams was
desired to give a toast, he gave, "The
Devil." His host was about to resent
the supposed indignity, but his wife
calmed him, and turned the laugh
upon Mr. Adams by immediately say
ing. "My dear, as the gentlemen has
seen fit to drink to our friend, let us
hv no means refuse to drink to his."
