Intends to keep In the front rank of
progressives It must pull up on its
bootstraps or stand aside while the
procession of whites marches by.
But to the point: A Negro postman
of this city who serves well nigh
an equal number of white and Col
ored patrons has observed much to
his regret that a big majority of his
white patrons are subscribers to not
only some weekly home or race pa
per but also to from one to several
well known magazines; while about
all the literature he carries to his
Negro patrons Is one or both of the
Negro papers. Now how can a race
whose general reading Is confined to
a weekly newspaper or two besides
one of the dally papers become as
generally Informed and acquire a vo
cabulary equal to that of the reader
of magazines and books? And It
must be admitted that tho average
Colored person is sadly lacking in a
choice of words, or an easy vocabu
lary, and In Ideas as well. Test the
young pupils in school of whatever
grade. Ask questions. Try to draw
them out. What do you get but yes
and no replies or answers In mono
syllables? Cme need not stop at the
class rooms. Apply the same test to
men and women of older growth who
have been through the schools In a
way. A lamentable poverty of syno
nyms Is noticeable, such words as
"nice" and "splendid" often standing
for. a score of descrlptlves. Contrast
this paucity of Ideas and lameness of
language with that of the average
white child who reads magazines and
books. Note the readiness with
which the latter responds or takes
part in a conversation, it would be
well if Colored people should awake
to tho fact of a race discrimination
which Is of their own begetting. To
borrow a phrase from a distinguished
editor orator, "this race variety of
ours" should pursue a course of gen
eral reading. It was a truism uttered
by Lord Bacon that "reading maketh
a full man." Sydney Smith gave
sage counsel when he said "we should
