It may seem strange that the white press of the country with its men of letters, linguists and scholars, con tinue to treat the word Negro as a common noun, when It Is well known that the word, regardless of its deri vation, is Intended to denote a partic ular race. The pity of it Is that there are some Negro Journals which per sist In treating the word as a common noun. We have no aversion to the word, but when It Is used out of re spect for English. It should bo writ ten with a big "N". Well! Well! This office has recelv n threat from certain club managers that they will batter our heads In, and snatch our legs from us and hammer us over the head with them.

This is one of the greatest scandals of the year. The ldta of such a tiling happening In our community. Why did h? wait until her father dlea to perpetrate such a vUllanous crime. Was It be cause he thought she never hnd any protection? It is an outrage to the good negro families nnd should be n sented. The Son Is surprised that the race has been so patient with such people.
