Those beautifully painted tin cans<

it seems that Edgefield and Saluda

NEGRO UTOPIA. FOUND.
t Educator Invites Colored Americans
ito Go to Republic of Liberia.
sL. Dr. R. A.'M. Deputies, superintend

Spublic of Liberia on the west coast of
iAfrica, who although born in Ameri:
e a, has spent fifty years in Monrovia,
Liberia, started recently on his re
turn trip by way of the Batavia,
d bound for Hamburg. He was a dele

> Presbyterian church. Doetor Depu
ties went to Africa by way of the
Underground railroad on his -first
ejourney there, and contrasted it with
the palatial corniforts of today, says
ethe New York Tribune. He declared
e5 that this will be his last trip across
n the ocean. aThe doctor declares that
n Lieriais aGod-selected spot for the
American negro and thait within five
e years he wants to see 100,000 Ameri
can negroes in Liberia, where they
can be happy, prosperous and wealthy
>and can truly worship under their
own vine and 'fig tree. ''We want
no 'undersirable citizens' though,''

'r In Liberia,'' continued he, ''we
1want men of our own race from Amer

.come with the desire to help us build
Sup our country and establish there a
a nation that can be made the wonder

a government of their own people and

ethe God of their fathers, build good
a schoolhouses, seminaries and colleges

. whichi would eventuate in the forma

Africa they will be born again.
"Of course Liberia is situated,"
said he, "in tropical Africa, and yet
it does not get as -hofthere as it has
been in 'the United States within the a

in the world in which to live after one

that if Stewart had remained in Liber
