to some slight degree and like
other races, is usually able to pick
his friends even though those
friends do not make known their
friendship by noisy protestations.
The men in whose hands the
reins of government are placed

the sentiments of the people whoi
elevated them to power and the sen-'
timenU built irp year by year by1
such men and set in motion by'
abuse and denunciation of the Ne-j

icuu ouou decision that "a Negro

in the Blind of the white man the

Pin-prises of the entire Auditorium

markable record is going to bo made
I'V the ladies' auxiliary. The lad'es'

what in the light of the experience
