BEWARE HOW WE BUILD.
"Be wise 0 ye kings and be instruc
ted ye judges of the Earth. Serve
the Lord with fear and rejoice-with
trembling." Nineteen hundred years
ago, the Lowly Nazareue, the greatest
expounder of democracy declared "Do
unto others as ye would that they
should do unto you." "Love ve one
another." "Whosoever heareth these:
sayings of mine and doeth them, I will'
liken him unto a wise man which;
built his house upon a rock, and the;
rain descended ami the Hoods came,
and the winds blew, and le;it upon
that house; and it fell not for it was;
founded upon a rock. Every one that
heareth these sayings and doeth them1
not shall bo likened unto a foolish
man that built his house upon the'
sand, and the foods came and the
winds blow and beat upon that house
and great was the fall thereof"
For nineteen hundred years, the
nations have built their hope i,n a
jui dy foundation, and when the' storm
descended great was the fall of their
house. Let. us beware how we buil i
our future civilization. Let us re
member that the .Most High rules in
the affairs of men. Let seltishne-s
anil envy and hatred and prejudice he
forever excluded from the principle-,
of our new democracy. .Move all. !e;
us pray that the spirit of llioi v.h ; i
no respect;, r of persius may permeate
and regenerate the hearts of those
men into whose hands are intrusted
the affairs id' our government, as they
sit around the council table, and help
them to buil 1 on the solid rock.

which would pay, it would be a splen
did nucleus toward building up our
people generally in a business way.
We understand quite thoroughly
that before the war was declared few
of our people, according to the wages
paid .them, were able to save much of
what they earned because wages were
so adjusted in many of the Industries,
that colored people were generally paid
only enough to .meet the actual costs
of living. But not so now. In many
instances our people have been organ
ized and are being paid the same wages
as any other people performing simi
lar service. Since wages have been
adjusted to enable the working man
to both live and have a little to save,
