In tho last 20 yearn whlto friends
In this country have privately con
tributed to exceed $20,000,000 for the
causa of negro education and to oxceed
$5,000,000 for our benevolent nnd re
ligious Institutions. Hampton and
Tuskegco, tho two greatest exclusive
industrial educational institutions,
whlto or black, In tho country, espe
cially established and maintained for
tho benefit of tho negro, aro endowed
from tho private purees of whlto
friends, Flsk, Atlanta and Wllbcrforco
colleges, types of so-called negro Insti
tutions for higher oducatlon, and every
negro educational Institution In all tbo
southern Btates, except tho negro de
nominational schools, wero established,
bavo been fostered and maintained
from tho prlvato means of white
friends. And many of tho denomina
tional schools havo benefited from tho
prlvato means of helpful whlto friends.
7o open our eyes, stand aghast and
denounce, with that volatllo propensity
characteristic of our own nnd tho Latin
races, tho more Introduction of a re
strictive legislative measure offered
meroly to appcaso a partisan sectional
constituency, but too frequently fail to
nuako to and applaud tho beneficent
glfta mado by philanthropic whlto
friends to assist racial advancement.
Tho gifts of n Hocekcfoller to negro
educational 'Institutions and for colored
Y. M. 0. A. establishments aro too soon
forgotten In our zeal to denounco tho
nntngonlsm of somo Tillman. The
splendidly largo bequests of a Carneglo
to help along raco advancement are
overlooked whllo wo Btop to anathema
tlzo somo Vardaman for opposing tho
appointment of somo negro to an In
conseqontlal ofllce Inconsequential In

total of raco progress. Wo fall to con
gregato and publicly thank somo Jew
ish philanthropist like Mr. Iloscnwald
for his munificent gifts to negro edu
cation and colored Y. M. C. A. work,
whllo making hnsto to call mass meet
ings to protest against tho cheap po
litical antagonism of some man, who
enters to a ribald hostility.
"Tho city has been owing mo CO
ccntB for almost halt a century," said
M. II. Scott, as ho presented a yel
low slip of paper, which wns a check

mayor of Topoka, 40 years ago. It was
cashed by City Treasurer Albert Halo.
It Is tho fine optimism of Dr. Hooker
T. Washington that causes him to tako
no note of tho Intermittent shots fired
by Isolated raco enemies, whllo ho Is

It Is well, perhaps, that wo noto and

and nil attempts to nbrldgo or rostrlct

by tho Constitution. It Is also urgent

Tbo silent, helpful whlto factors out

Tho good ofllce nnd contributions of
whlto friends alono Incited the raco
to reduce Its Illiteracy to a point where
wo can boast that but 17 per cent of
the 11,000.000 negrooa of this country
Thero Is no effort or Intention of
European governments having posses
sions In West Africa, or of Europeans
having business interests here, to col
onize these possessions nt present or
In tho future. Though thousands of
Europeans aro engaged In tho servlco
of tho vnrlous governments nnd trad
ing nnd mining companies, they do not
Intend to make West Africa their
home. They nro usually on contrnct
with ono of tho governments or with
trading or mining companies for ono,
two or throe cars, at the end of which
periods they return to their Kuropean
homes. Government olIlclMs claim
thnt the country Is being developed
solely for tho native, and that thero
Is neither purposo nor hopo to mako
It a "whlto man's" country. At pres
ent, at least, this appears to be thi
purpose of tho various governments,
excoptlng Liberia, tho negro republic,
which Invites colonization of American
negroes of financial means nnd educa
tion. Even Syrians and Hast Indians
coming to West Africa to engago in
trado return periodically to their
Asiatic homes. Of tho few American
negroes who have found their way to
West Africa to scttlo In Liberia, 99 por
cent aro unprepared to meet tho
economic conditions nnd express re
gret at having left America. These,
excepting a few who cannot secure
passago monoy, return to tho United
States. Somo have been assisted by
tho consul In securing passago on sail
ing vb 'els returning to America. Few,
other than well-educated American
nogroes, can accommodate themselves
to the existing racial, religious and
economic conditions, the natives al
ways considering them foreigners.
In soclologlc symbolism, tho "pov
erty lino" and tho "color lino" must
not bo confused. Tho burden Is not
peculiar to this land; all tho world
over, people living under such condi
tions as thoso In which the bulk of
our negro population Is placed aro af
fected by their environment, nnd re
act upon It, Just as tho American ne
gro does. Poverty and Ignorance aro
no respecters of social differentiation.
But raco consciousness Is not merely
Ineradicable, It is a deslrablo thing, It
1b a beneficial necessity: "LIfo does
not develop toward uniformity but to
ward richness of variety in a unity
of boauty and servlco. in the light of
natural law and ultimate physical one
ness of tho human races becomes as
chimerical as tho disappearance of
tho rich diversity of winged forms in
fnvor of an Ultimnto Bird." Uncial
differences nro not marks of superior
ity and Inferiority. Tho white raco
needs to loso not Its regard for racial
purity and differentiation but Its prej
udice, and tho black raco needs to
cherish Its entity, with faith In Its own
fitness for somo peculiar "servlco
which It, and It alone, can render In
richest measure Ui tho great Brother-,
hood of Man." Although sho doos not
say so, tho author of "In Illnck and
White," Mrs. L. H. Hammond, would
probably Indorse as a motto for both
black and whlto folks: Truo altru
ism begins at home.
An explosion In a Michigan mlno
killed nil tho rats, and tho miners re
fused to return to work until a fresh
Bupply was obtained. They aro re
garded as a necessity In thoso mines,
and are known as tho minors' friends.

Then, too, tho conservation of cul
tural values can also bo better socured
through race sympathy than through
laco antipathy. Tho production of such
values may depend upon particular
ruces, not necessarily, how over, their
conservation no rnco may rMso tho
(lower and giw. tho seed to others. Tho
moro ono rnco aftor another shares In
tho Intellectual wealth of tho world,
tho more humanity progresses. These
very values are produced on tho high
er IovoIb, and raco antipathy belongs
to lower levels. We must depend upon
rnco sympathy for tholr consorvntlon.
Therefore, It seems clear that what
ever good purposo raco antipathy 1ms
hitherto servod can now bo better
Borved by raco sympathy. Not through
raco aversion, but through race ap
preciation; not through rnco antagon
ism, but through raco co-oporatlon; not
through race separation, but through
race fellowship lies the way to the
rtcher.-fuller life of humanity.

BABY HAD SCALP TROUBLE
Carthago, Texas. "My little girl had
some kind of breaking out on her head
that came In whlto blisters and when
tho blisters burst they formed some
thing like scales. If I washod her
head and combed tho scales off they
would como again In Just a few days.
Tho troublo looked something like
dandruff but was hard and scaly and
when the scalos would come off all of
tho hair came also and would leave
the head raw.
"I bad tried salves which only soft
ened the scales so I decided to use
Cutlcura Soap and Ointment. I
washed her head with warm water and
Cutlcura Soap and then applied tho
Cutlcura Ointment and let It remain
over night. I used only one box of
Cutlcura Olntmont and ono bar of
Cutlcura Soap and her head was well."
