Hon. John C. McKinley.
It seems now a settled fact that Hon. John C. McKinley our
present Lieutenant Governor will oe a candidate on the Republican
ticket for United States Senator to succeed William J. Stone, the
present incumbent, and whose term expires March 4 lg09, Mr.
McKinley has been in the limelight for a number years. He served
two years as State Senator from his district, from which position
he resigned after his election to his present office. As senator and
in the office of Lieutenant Governor, he has come up to the expecta
tions of his party friends, and won the plaudits of the opposition.
All persons concede that John C. McKinley is a most able man and
that he is honest and incorruptible in private and public life. He
is young vigorous and aggressive and would fill every requtrmentof
the high office he seeks with credit to himself and with honor to the
great State of Missouri. The principles of thegrcatest McKinley of
cur age and country will never be tarnished by John C. of Unionville
faith in himself, But if he had 1 Df p IJt f1Bftfl
ihnl,) liio Jn,n ... SaWS
den race and gone about with the
same old whine, the same old
backache the same taleof woe and
hard luck, would he have won or
would he have been supported?
One exhibition of accomplish
ments will do the race more gocd
than all indignation meetings you
can hold from now to doomsday.
HIS WORK AT ARMSTRONG

LY. A GOOD
"Broaden Your Occupations"
fir. Washington's Advice to His
Fellow Race-Men, in a Re
cent Philadelphia Address.
"Dear Friends: I am over
whelmed by your evidence ol
kindness. I thank you from the
bottom of my heart. Your pastor
has given me a text to speak from.
I suppose he thinks no mutter
what the text is, the sermon wi'l
be the same. It is very hard for a
preacher, editor, or orator to say
anything really new. No matter
from what point ve state a fund
men tal fact, it is but repetition of
a fact established since the, foun
dation of the world. This is a
consolation to me. I am some-
j'ou here in the North' where you
have splendid opportunities,
wouia widen and broaden your
occupations, lscacerly ever get
into a Pullman car that some
white man docs not ask me to
make his bed or bring a glass of
water. No insult to me is intend
ed, but our race has clung so
close to one line of occupation
that we are unconsciously and
intimately associated with it. We
fish in the shallow water for min
nows instead cf venturing out on
the deep, where the big fish are.
Strike out! Don't shun rd
work of learning something
Learn to be thrifty and lay the
economic foundation for an edu
cated race and drive out the loaf
ers among you.
"Learn a- lesson from Joe Gans;
You remember dome time ago he
had a fight with Nelson, and his
times asked how can the colored friends asked him about his
chance, and he simply said, 'Put
every dollar on me.' Some nerv
ous people ran to Gans and asked
him if he wasn't afraid of the col.
or line. But to all inquiries he
simply answered, "Put every dol
lar on me.' And he won. He had
people North help the colored
people South. Let us bear in
mind, whether we live North or
South, we arc one. I feel myself
very much at home tonight, be
cause I find myself among so
many from the South. "I wish

The Douglass Public school
of Armstrong Mo. under the cap
taincy of Prof. P. Martin Cason
is nearing the close of the best
year's work in its history; under
his progressive leadership it has
steadily grown in efficiency until
it ranks among the best :n state
So thoroughly has be imbued the
patrons with the idea of main
taining the school, and the im
portance of educating their child
ren that we can. boast of a com
munity where every boy girl of
school age is taking advantage of
this great opportunity. Who can
surpass or even equal this stand
ard? Underthe dauntless leader
ship and tireless efforts of Prof.
Cason the school has arisen from
the old-fashioned one room a com
modious and well arranged three
room school buildiner, two of
which are used for teaching. His
first assistant was one of his
graduates in the person of Miss
Ethel Hurt, now Mrs. Henry
Yancy; she made an excellent
teacher and contributed much
toward the advancement of the
school, having served in the capac
ity for three years. The pres
ent assistant was a Miss Lucrutia
Kruthers, a graduate from th
Normal Dept. of the Geo. R
Smith College. Sedalia Mo.
but since Oct. 23rd. she has been
Mrs. f. i. (jason having mar
ried die Prof, since assuming the
position. As a teacher it goes
without saying that she is well
liked and has won the hearts o f
all even to the principal and be
not hesitate to affirm that he ib
well pleased with his assistant
Not only is the Professor a po
tent iactor in tnc community as
a secular educator, but equally so
in religious circles; he is a tire
less worker in the various depart
ments of the church, the sunday
school being his forte; It is
rare treat to sit under nis sane
instructions- His Bible class is
nothing less than a practial The
ological Institute to which old and
young are eager to throng everv
Sundav morning. The Professor
is widely known, having travelled
extensively, and attended some of
the lending assemblages of the
land especially those among his
own race. He is an ardent lover
ol literature and is the possessor
of a fine library of well selected
volumes; also he. has built up a
most valuable one in the school.
, He is a writer of no mean ability
and has served as reporter for
some of the most prominent ga
therings in and out of the state.
He stands high with the board of
aducation as is shown by their
readiness to assist him in any un
dertaking for the elevation of the
school. The' graduating class
this year which consists of 5 girls
and 4 boys is the larges-t in the
history cf the school; coming as
they do from some of the repre
s:ntative families of thecomimin
lty, they already possess many
traite of womanly and manly bear
ing, showing how faithfully their
instructor has worked in shaping
their lives for usefulness in the
world. May his life be sparec
many more years to engage it.
