with "Kufus Uastns" a teal coon show, in which they are rtarritii; Krnest
Ilonn, who Is known the world over as "the unbleached American." The
attraction which will be presented to the (irand audiences ilnriitK the week
of .May tith differs entirely from the Hetienil run of these musical plays. Not
only on account of Its cast beins of a dark had", but also for the reason
that every style of trayety and frivolity, wums and dances for which the
colored race Is known, will be Introduced Is sufficient guarantee, that "Kufus
ltastus" Is a well diirestable offering. "Mowm Is a whole show by himself."
Htiyn the Philadelphia item. In 'Ituf us RaM us" he Is depicted as a Southern
ction with a proclivity for constantly tfettinu into trouble and ridiculous
situations. The opening of the farce is at I once de I, eon Hotel. St. Augus
tine, Kla.. where he has been stranded willi an "I'ncle Tom" show. From
the scene of action Is moved to Madison Square (iardt n. New York, on the
nijjht of a ran-tlme masque ball. In the Metropolis he suddenly becomes
luckv and the finish or the piece Is a Pod one to the measly moke. Through
out the production which Is put on with elaborate effect In every detail, the
coniedv is wholesome and thorotmhly typical of the Southern nenro. 1 he
aim of the performers is to create nothing but comedy and they mote than
succeed In their effects.

In Affliction's School.
One month In the school of affliction

ceits of fortune. Fuller.
Tends Monkeys and Men.
The monkey house ot the London
zoo Is helm? cleaned, difinfected and
partly reconstructed. The Field re
marks: "The work will lie done un
der the supervision of Mr. nrdon, the
expert, who has been In charge of the
sanitation ot the House or Commons."
It Is indeed ad to see so man of
our colored girls out of employment
and wandering nroundfrom pUoe to
place. Many of them are too proud
to work Tor their own people and
many of them ore too lazy to work
for the white people. Of course
are some honorable exceptions. TTie
colored set v:' nt s should remember
that they can be ladies and gentle
men in l lie kitchen and dining room
as well as they can in 1 lie parlor.
There are lots of young men and wo
men writ king out as servants and can
command respect If they respect
themselves. Hut the condition of
many of the colored servants today
Is heart-rendcl ing. Many of them
are not wanted because they are not
reliable and unclean in appearance.
The large hotels are dispensing with
the colored waiters, bell boys and
colored cooks. Ilarber shops that
have heretofore been couducjtcil 1'T
colored men are fast being dWSrasSMI
bv white barbers. The Italians haveT:
pushed the colored bootblack aside
and established modern and up-to-date
pallors. The Chinaman and up-to-date
laundries have taken the place
of the colored washerwoman, and the
colored nurs( s no longer lire seen
upon the public streets. What will la
the future of the colored servant Is
the question? The colored pulpit lias
thrown aside religion and joined the
army of money grafters. Instead of
religion in the colored church being
preached, begging for money to carry
into effect speculation schemes from
which many of them receive a per
centage. What will be the future of
the colored seivaut Is the question
that ought to lie considered by the
pulpit. The time Is ripe for the col
ored people in this city to be look
ing about them. The colored servant
is passing out of existence fast.

The following editorial from the
Jefferson City Kepublican Review
speaks for itself:
A party of Jefferson City men went
over to Lincoln Institute yesterday
to inspect the work of that school
and came away with a high opinion
of its management and teachers.
They were deeply impressed with
the standards of work in all tin1
departments, but they were particu
larly impressed with the work which
isc being done In the industrial de
partment. In t hat department tiny
found young men gleaning practical
information in blacksmil hlng, carpen

moulding and other useful trades, and
the girls acquiring the rudiments, nyo
more, a practical and working knowl
edge of domestic science in all its
They were shown exhibits of the
sewing, laundering, fancy needle
work, etc., done by the girls, and
they were not only shown, but ate

students and served in the spacious
