with Leep Interest as He Told of the Problems of

Why Is M?
. Have you ever wondered in looking
ver the pages of the great advertis
ing mediums that you do not see Lawn
Mowers advertised? Everything else
f a like nature is there, such as
McKee Refrigerators, Sherwin-Williams
Paints, Etc. (By the way, we
carry both of these excellent articles.)
But Lawn Mowers are not exploited
in the magazines. It remains for the
local dealer to popularize his line,
either by liberal use of printers ink or
by attracting attention by low prices.
In a factory that pays just wages to
its employe the cost of-manufacture to
day is greater than ever before. Hence
the oheap lawn mower is poorer qual
ity than ever. Price should not count
in buying lawn mowers.
Townsend's Spider and Flyer Mow
ers are the ones we stake our reputa
tion on. These are sold at a lower
percentage of profit than any other
make. Why not buy one? They are
easiest running and cut so close to an
obstruction or border that less trim
ming is necessary.

Every seat in Park Congregational
church wa.s filled and extra chairs
brought in from the chapel on Thurs
day evening, ho great was the inter
est in the address given by Hooker T.
Washington. In introducing the sueak
erRev. Dr. Howe emphasized the fact
that this was not a church function
but one in which every citizen was in
terested. Everyone knows of Mr.
Washington's work and recognizes
Tuskegee institute a3 a national as
set. . . ,
J. F. Slater and Moses Pierce.'
Mr. Washington expressed sue t'al
pleasure and gratification at coming
to Norwich again, as this was the
home of the great man. John V. Plat
er, to whom his race owes so much.
His original gift of one million dollars
has oeen increased b;.' judicious in
vestment to one and a half millions.
Also Tuskegee has a special sense of
gratitude to Afoses fierce, whose wise
foresightedness in buying needed land
when .easily obtained years aro made
him a great benefactor. Mr. Washing
ton's only embarrassment was that
he couldn't for the life of him remem
ber which address it was he gave when
he was here last and he afraid he
might repeat the same one.
. There is one question which is al
ways widely discussed the negro
question in the United States. Various
ways of solving it have been present
ed. Some have advocated sending them
back to Africa and 600 of them ac
tually did go hack but 600 babies
were born that same day in the south.
Some would colonize them in some
wild, unsettled place in the west, but
it would need a wall around it to keep
the negro in, and five walls to keep the
white man out. He will not disappear
or be absorbed by the other races.
for it i takes 100 xer cent, of white
blood to make a white man and only
1 per cent, of colored "blood to make
a colored man. The negro is the only
colored race that cau live side by side
with, the white man.
Colored Man in Everything.
True, the white man came first, but
he soon became lonesome and brought
the negro here at his own expense.
He has been in everything ever since.
When the Pacific wa reached, the
Rockies first crossed, Oregon explor
ed, the battle of Bunker Hill fought.
he was with the white man. He was
on both side in the civil war as al
ways, impartial and when the North
pole was reached, a iv' black man
was there. The srreat and fundamen
tal question is how these two peoples
may live together in peace and har
mony each helping instead of hinder
ing the other. For the colored race
to do its full share in this it must
give attention to those principles
which will enable it to succeed and
to show others its success.
Taught Wrong at Start.
Slavery was a school in which the
negro was taught that labor was de
grading. Consequently his first am
bition on being free was to get to a
point where he did v.ot have to work
with his hands. This lesson must be
unlearned. And down in Alabama this
problem is the greatest one to solve.
Mr. Washington went there from
Hampton on graduating years ago. and
began teaching in a poor shack. Soon
an unused hen house was added to
the equipment. From -this beginning
has grown Tuskegee with 1,000 stu
dents, 172 instructors, 3.000 acres of
land. 06 buildings tind cue million en-
made to speak there -at 9.30 o'clock.
The church was packed to the doors
with a congregation of both white
and colored people. A number who
had been at Park church followed the
speaker to the other meeting bouse to
hear him speak a second time.
An orchestra played Hold the Fort
as he. was escorted into the church,
and the congregation joined in the
hymn. Pastor W. H. Eley presented
Mayor Iippitt, who in turn introduced
Dr. Washington, referring to the -honor
he felt in introducing him-as an Am
Dr. Washington was due to leave
by the boat train, so that he spoke
only briefly, but to the intense appre
ciation of his audience, who frequent
ly interrupted him with applause." To
shun idleness, to appreciate the digni
ty of labor and to acquire and use an
education that shall contribute to the
material prosperity of the great mass
of the people he made the keynotes in
his forceful words of advice.
Idleness a Disgrace.
Idleness, he said, is ci disgrace to
any peule and no condition more than
idleness is so productive of evil to
young men and young women. The
negro people need an education, but
they need to use it when they get it
ann to get the kmd that can be used
It is the prosperity- of the ordinary
people that means the prosperity of
tiie whole and we need to educate
great mass of the people in ways that
win bring in something to- eat. Be
cause the negro people haven't put
brains and skill into the things they
knew, they have lost some occupa
tions which formerly belonged to them
and we need to put these things into
our work to hold our jobs. Illustrat
ing this point. Dr. Washington said
that he had gone into a hotel recently
where there was a Flench waiter.
This man had put Drains into fits bus
iness, for when he brought the change
it was on a silver tray all carefully
spread out in nickles. -aimes, quarters
and halves. It was a pretty mean man
who would pick up ever; one of those
pieces. But nert dav in a hotel wheat
the waiter wps a negro, it was differ
ent. This waiter brought the change
all in his hand. " and dumped the
whole amount into Dr. Washington's,
who yielded to the temptation of put
ting it all into his pocket.
Saving Is Necessary.
OC equal importance with making
money was to acquire the habit of
saving some of what you get hold of,
said Dr. Washington. Start a bank
account for 3'ourself and every mem
her of your family, and get some mon
ey to working for you. like the white
man. Married men should talk Iheir
business affairs over with their wives,
telling all about their debts and their
wages, for without such knowledge no
wite could .successfully heip her hus
Concluding, the speaker said tfiat
he was more interested in getting
some of heaven into this world than
getting the people into heaven in the
next. Keep hell out of here and you
won't have to worry about getting in
to hell in the next world. In spite of
ail handicaps the race is progressing,
and will continue to progress, Jyut
don't keep on advertising that you
are a downtrodden race. One thing
that the white man will respect is
success and if ;-o;i show him that you
can succeed you will get his help, for
in this jreat American republic there's
a chance for every black boy and every
dowment. The constant aim through- I black girl that will show they have
out is not increase of students, land
or money but Christian usefulness. A
study of the conditions of the masses
shows that this idea of the degrada
tion of labor must be overcome.
Industrial Schools Necessary.
Industrial schools are necessary to
teach the dignity of labor and the dis
grace of idleness. For. 250 years the
negro was worked lit slavery. Now
he is being iaugUt how to work. Work
ing and beinr worked is the difference
between freedom, and slavery, and tb."y
have learned the difference in these
2."i years. Thi change of opinion in
regard to labor is the greatest achieve
ment of the schools in this time. , They
are a vonng and inexperienced race,
with th-jr tuture still ahead of them
and. iike a il yoinic people. 1 in "ole ro

to get the lai .things in civilization
the stuff in them.
Blest Be the Tie That Binds was the
concluding hymn, and then Dr. Wash
ington and Mayor Lippitt with the
pastor were invited to a banquet given
by the trustees in the room at the rear
of the church. The speaker had time
to stop for only a minute before he
had to take his auto for the train. A
fine menu was served including salads,
croquettes, green peas, biscuits, cake,
ice cream and coffee. Those serving
were Mrs. William E. Geary, Mrs.
Speed Evans, Mrs. Mafia Silvia, Mrs.
Zorah Hall and Mrs. John Harris, with
Al UBcti Josephine Fields. Anna Cross,
and Idella Scott as waitresses.

This is a natural reaction against i
the abuse of the "third degree" by i
Superintendent Byrnes, the first to
practice it in an extreme v.av, and his j
successors. But a law such as ha

has weight as evidence at common law. ,
