The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is al
least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to cure in all
its stages and that is Catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only
positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is taken internally,
acting direotly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation
of the d.sease, and giving the pa
tient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting nature
in doing its work. The proprie

Hon. Walter M. Farmer.
It has been reported that Hon.
Walter M. Farmer, our talented
attorney of St. Louis, is to leave
the state. We hope this is not
true as Mr( Farmer's place as a
citizen and race man would be
hard to fill. He is a modest, un
assuming gentleman of the highest
type, and his removal from the
state would be almost an irrepar
able loss to us as a race.

It did not take the more level
headed members of the race long
to see that while the negro in the
South was surrounded by many
difficulties, there was practically
no line drawn and little race dis
crimination in the world of com
merce, banking, store-keeping,
manufacturing and the skilled
trades, and in agriculture, and that
in this lay his great opportunity.
They understood that, while the
whites might object to a uegro's
being a postmaster, they would not
object to his being the president of
a bauk, and in the latter occupa
tion they would give him assist
ance and encouragement. The col
ored people were quick' to see that
while the negro would not be in
vited as a rule to attend the white
man's prayer meeting, be would
be invited every time to attend the
stockholders' meeting of a busi
ness concern in which he had an
interest, and that he could buy
property in practically any portion
of the South where the white man
could buy it. The white citizens
were all the more willing to en
courage, the negro in this economic
or industrial development, because
they si w that the prosperity of the
negro meant also the prosperity of
the white man. They saw, too,

Educators throughout the coun
try are interested in the decision
of the appellate division of the
United ',!3tateB Supreme Court af
firming the right of the school
boards of New York to declare the
position vacant of any woman
teacher or principal who is married
during the term of service. There
is a difference of opinion among
school masters upon the subject,
which has resulted in very much
discussion. The school board
adopted a resolution that marrying
should be equivalent to resigning,
Two Brooklyn teachers brought
suits to test the law, and the lower
conrt decided in their favor. Supt,
Maxwell then brought the matter
before the Supreme Court, and the
result was the upholding of the
New York school board. Justice
Hooker, in giving his opinion
"The purpose of the rule is not
to disoourage marriage. It is
rather in the public interest to dis
pense with the services of that
class of teachers who assume new'
duties and step into another field,
and where it is thought their en
vironments would tend toward the
disparagement of school interest."
In the majority of the cities of
the country tljere is either a writ
