No class of the great population of the United States has a keener interest in the census than the nine million A fro-Americans. By the warm friends of the race it is be lieved that if only a correct census were had, favorable conditions and steady, hopeful progress would he shown, by which their argu ments would be proved and those of their tradmers answered. Only once in ten years this op portunity comes toplace ihettselveA upon record, an opportunity too great to be lost by ignorance or in difference or unwarranted fear. Every Afro-American leader who has the true interest of his race at heart will enter upon earnest and persistent efforts to teach them the scope and purpose of the coming census. “Nothing succeeds like success.” Every success of the negro proved by Federal censm facts will give him a great impetus in his forward march. In *he census he is a wit ness in hisown behalf before a chart which will render a verdict Withbut fear or favor upon his own lioned testimony. If he h se this op portunity the loss will i< st at his own door. The census office will treat him as it does evefy other American citizen. ’ >• Stamp the Eiephant. * * * aow Tc get a‘‘ring 4 ’ Wad a dollar bill up into your hand and the i lay it out Hat and you will find it “Increases.'’ Take A quarter and saw it into two in the middle and you will have two halves.
