kind tat prepares a man for the
greatest sphere of usefulness for his
day and generation; be It on the
farm, in the shops, in the pulpit in
the sick room, in the professors
chair, in the halls of congress, or tho
thief executive of a state or niaion.
I believe, in a thorough preparation
so that when the opportunity comes
and responsibilities fall heavy upon
our shoulders that we should be able
to bear our burden, and rejoice that
we have been counted worthy to oc
cupy station that mark few mile
stones In the progress of civilization.
One sad mistake made by too many
of our people, that they have not yet
learned that there are degrees in in
telligence. They think that all mem
bers of a profession stand on the
same parity. The preacher who has
never gone to school and is not
conversant with the teachings of a
single Theologicaal book is daubed
"Doc" just the same as the one who
has undergone years of preparation
in mental discipline and has be
come acquainted with ancient lore
and modern language. The so-called)
teacher who by some unknown, and
unmentionable nnd questionable
methods or fho by some lngenius
move succeeds in getting some kind
of a certificate, is tailed "Fessor"
just the same aa one- who has delve!
deep in the sciences, unraveled the
intricacies of languages and mused
upon the thoughts of philosophers.
Go Into the homes and sick-room
of our people and you will see a
pitiablg spectacle. You will find the
ignoramus playing doctor; the
uack administerqing medicine and
the sorcerer attending the sick. If
called in, his orders tire often coun
termanded by these wise ones; and.
the patient hurries into an untime
ly grave. The web of superstition
has been woven so firmly about
many of us, that we resign ourselves
reluctantly, and with a great deal of
reservation Into the hands of a true
ioetor and Impede hiu progress in
getting us on the road to recovery.

If you have you have discovered

since you have kept a tabulated ac

there is something radically wrong

We are often imposed upon be
cause we do not know how to protect
ourselves. There are dcsignins
iigents who come to our homes and
with oily words induce us to take
their goods; present an elastic con
tract which any one. seemingly,
could meet. After we have starte!
with them they usually tighten down
and when we have aimost paid out,
if we fail to meet one payment, they
back up to our doors, take the goods
away only to be sold to another. If
we Were properly educated we would
demand legal procedure before the
goods were moved. When we show
our creditors this, they will be more
leady to treat with than to dispos
sess us. Some of us have already
paid for things ten times over and
do not now posses them, and it is
because of the wicked, pernicious
system I have been diseasing above,
because we have not the mental
the failure of all our institutions
Wo need educational development
that we may become acquainted
with the laws of commerce and
great business methods. I know
that there are those who say that
the failurl of all our institutions
was brought about by our educated
men. I want to emphatically deny
this assertion. It may have come
about through the so-called educated.
They did not fail because of educa
tion, but because of the lack of It.
They failed because those in charge
did not have enough Intellect to run
them; or those who put tliem in
charge were careless in their se
lection; or negligent ln binding
them. We are an emotional people
and ar too often actuated by our
feelings; our likes and dislikes.
We pay our preacher a good salary
'"if he preaches until we can feel
him" and makes us feel good before
collection. 'We join a project if we
like those in it or If we feel right
about It. We should learn to put
business into whatever we do and
not our petty whims. When a man
is anxious for a responsible position,
und more anxious that we should
not bind him but trust his honor, we
should scrutinize him all the more
carefully and bind htm all the more
tightly,, for the one who wants to do
right does not hate to be bound.
There I3 need of educational de
velopment to reduce the death rate
of our people. We nro dying faster
than we should according to statis
tics; and dying faster than we are
being born in many places. It does
not take the eye of a philosopher to
see the- Inevitable results of this con
tinues. When we purchase' homes
we do not first ntudy the topography
of the place. Too often we build our
houses at the ends of sewers which
belch forth death and destruction in
to our doors. Too often- we squat
ln basins and become the constant
boon companions of tho lurking dead
ly miasma ln these valeys of death;
too often we build our houses much
too small for our families and gen
erate venom which preys on our
vitals; too often our fathers go to
market get culled and purified meat
and fuma and fret and even fight
if the'.r wives and daughters do not
perform a miracle on it and make it
rival the ambrosia that was served
at the table of the gods upon Mount
Olympus. Too often fathers who se
lect good food have to bring it to
cooks who do not know what in

doors. The slums of the East are at
the Dago stands; Africa touches us
on all sides; and in the shops, in
the wash tub, ln fields and almost in
every avenue of life you will find
fields already white unto harvest.
There is always need of education
al development among us that we
may have some thing ennobling and
elevating to think on. and talk about.
Have you noticed that the most of
our conversations are about the com
mon flippancy of everyday gissip:
that our daily theme consists of
distorted facts and misrepresenta
tions of our neighbors? Y'ou can
Kirdly go visiting but that ten thou
sand eyes are eager to magnify

to cntch some unfavorable whisper
detrimental to the virtuous charac

lofty, more sublime. If our young

things that make for true manhood
and pure womanhood; they will give
the wheel of progress another move

forms and fashions they will talk
about lCuclid, Homer, Newton and
L'Overture; instead tf following in
the weathor&eaten paths of crime,
they will seek the footprints of the

When our minds have been devel

have no attraction for us. Cnod
books will become our companions
and we shall hear the voices of the
distant and the dead: we shall re
ceive the heritage of all the ages
and noble thoughts will spring from
our minds in full ranopy as did

And nfially we need Intellectual
development because of the keenness;
of competition the world over. Mind

work today. One intelligent man
