race must bo segregated and removed.
It Is Impracticable as he urges with
out the agency of the general govern

without the consent of tho negro him
self. This Is not objectionable, and in
time, a long stretch of time, might
gradually relievo the South of its

A busy government clerk hurried in

many little tables about, nnd each ono
was attended to by au ebon lined

from a long counter that acted us a

Bpple dumplings, deviled ernbs. tripe
nnd oysters and other similar dainties
so famili?r to the ordinary luuchrootu.
"Bring me a sandwich and a glass of

quickly returned with the desired food

to the darky. The waiter pulled forth
