"My frens," said Brother Gardner
Jjben the Saturday night meeting of the
Cotton Blossom club had been oned in
?ZTi duVm dUTS
things I desiah to call yo'r 'tenshun to
at dig ti me, when dis club has no per
tickler Jizness befo' it
Z if06 datT8ome of y' i8 eat hands
fur mot toes. In my time I has knowed
heaps o people wid mottoes, an I nebber
got alon,f y better
dan od!er folks. Do trubble seems to
be i dat t e- matto an de man doan' exactly
hitch Q togwdwr. De laziest, sleepiest
man I tber knowed had 'Excelsior' fur
his motto. De man who stole sixteen
chicken from my coop in Detroit had
fur his motto. 'Honesty brings success.'
Itisnow ober seben yars since I lent
three dc liars to a man who had no less
dan fire different mottoes to spur him
on, an I hain't got dat money back yit.
It hain't de motto dat makes de man,
but ebei y man must make hisself. When
Shindig Watkins goes to de grocery fur
a pound of saleratus de grocer doan' ax
him what motto he am runnin bizness
on. but looks hin in de eye an expects
him to come down wid de cold cash. If
Samuel Shin had bin livin fur the last
twenty-ene y'ars by de golden principles
ofdemttto of 'Strive to Do Right," he
couldn't go out on Sixth avenue an
make it buy him three yards of caliker.
When Lit caliker was cut off an rolled
np, Brnt der Shin would hev to plank
down de cash or offer good security.
'.'An I want to tell yo' dat one-half de
trubble ve encounter in dis wurld cums
from our expectin too much of our feller
men. We expect a man am gwine to
tell de troof when we know we'd dodge
it ourself; dat he's gwine to be honest
where w:'d be tricky; dat he'll believe in
ns while we doubt him; dat he orter be
generous while we am stingy. In fact,
we's look in fur odder folks to lie perfect,
while w- realize dat we ourselves am
chuck fn 1 o' meanue.-s.
"I has made it a rule all my life not to
expect Uo much of my feller man. I've
knowed s man to run 'long fur a y'ar or so
as level us a plank an as good natnred as
a squash. Then he'd suddenly kick up
an show "lis mean side. We is all full o'
streaks nn whims an noshuns, an dar
cums a li me when we've got to show 'em
out or ln ;t tie b Her.
"I hes jin pained to obsarve a dispo
sishun o:i de part of sartin members of
dis club t ) le curns regardin deir nay
bars. I used to be dat way myself in de
long ago. Df-re was a time in my life
when, if a strange nigger pasd mv
cabin rilin a 6traw cull'd mewl an fol
lowed by a valler dawg, I'd stop hoein
co n and sot down to wonder who he
was whir' he cam frnm how many
chill'en he had wheder he wouldn't
trade dat dawg fur a b'ar trap, an so on
an so forti. I found it a losin bizness an
I quit. Any one of us who kin manage
to keep cut of de hands of de doctors.
police an lawyers has about all de biz
ness he w.int s to see to.
"An I vant to say a few words to de
younger members of dis clnb on de sub-
jlck of ppieadin deirselves. Deodderday
1 saw Thrr-f ly Johnson. who is a waitah
in a hotel, gwine along Broadway wid so
much spread dat folks stopped to look
arter him an wonder how many banks
he owned. When we come right down
to facts, Brndder Johnson airns about
ten dollnrs a week, an if he am heah to
night I'll liet he hain't got fifty cents in
his pocke What's de use, den, of all
dat spread? What's de use of deceivin de
public? Let a man be what he am. If
he s got seventeen mill yon dollars, den
let him fri'W on seventeen millyon dol
lars' wuth of etyle. If he haint got but
seven te-n nts let hitu walk softly aroun
an atiemj t no decejv.hnn. De public
can't be dt-ceived about dese things.
"When Waydown Beliee gits on dat
cape rout of his an goes sailing down
Broadway, nobody believes dat he owns
all dis town, ik-Iuw Bleecker street. Dey
is right m o him for a chap who couldn't
buy fiff-n cents' worth of paregoric an
hev 'nuff sh left to ride home on de
kvar. I sj, w one of our members gwine
into a bunk de odder day wid great stiff
ness an importance. He jnst reckoned
dat ober fo'ty thousand people would
believe he was gwine in dar to git $20,
000 in cash an buy a house on Lexington
avenue, b it he wa dfceived. I dun
sfw a man look nrt?r him an say, 'I
wonder if dat nigger is gwine to carry
"I saw arioder member standin down
by the pof-soffis an lookin at de Astor
Honse. He walked up an down an
looked an looked. He wanted people to
emagine dat he was gwine to bny dat
hotel. He felt in his pocket an he asked
a man if Mr. Astor was home, but he
deceived to one. I was standin right
dar when & policeman said he mus' dnn
move on or he'd give him de collar.
"Jist a word or two mo. From whar
I stan I kit count no less dan forty-two
great, largt diamond pins glitterin on de
shirt bosnr an ireckscarfs of members,
an I reckor dere ar' forty-two mo' on de
back rows. De ideah wid ebery single
one of yo" is to make de public believe
yo'r pin co t at least $500, an dat yo' is
rollin in richness. Does de public so
believe? otmuch De public knows
winder gla-s when it sees it, an de pub
lic pities vo' fur yo'r childish vanity.
We will i ow put out de fiah, upset de
water pail an depart to our various
homes." New York World.
