of the Negro have at all times
been interested in this matter.
There is only the one true way

Negro, viz.. A free and un

and wealth. There is no class
of peaple to-day in our land
{that has a stronger claim upon

toffers a more inviting fleld for

~ Givethe Negro afair show
ing, and before the end of the
next decade, he will show you
that his eapabilities are equal
to those of any race. Give to
him liberty, fraternity, and
equality; the three greatest
wotds 1n all the Janguages of
| men. Liberty gives to every
mari the fruit of his own labor
—the labor of his hand and
of his brain. Fraternity: Ev
ery man in the right is my
brother. ' Equality: %‘he rights |
of all are equal. - No race, no.
. color, no previous econdition
can change the rights of men;
God ereated them free and
lequal. Give the Negro the
opportunity to own . better
}'homes. and more of the con
' veniences of life; remember,
' that man must give liberty to
' others, if 'he would be ‘tree

'the man whe helps his fellow

From the reading of the arti:
cle it would seem that some
of our merchants would do
well to employ the same kind|
of clerks. Read it carefully
and then act accordingly:
. A gentleman who owns a big clothing
store was agpliad to by & young negro man
last month for employment. There was &
good deal ot.qmbi&ioq in the young fellow,
‘for he asked for a clerkship. He hadafair}
eduoation, was quick at fi_guru, and was |
blessed with a tongue that knew no halting.
He didn't get the post of salesman that he
wanted, but was hired to play the part of's’
eneral utility man in the establishment at
58 & week. He did up the bundles, ran er
rands, swept the floors—did general menial
servica. But he didn’t complain. One
day three or four weeks ago be approached
the proprietor with a néew proposition. I
luprofi," eaid ke, “‘that you've got no ob- z
jeotion to my diumming up & litile trade?”
The merebant smiled, perbaps a little sar- |
castieally, and assured the young man that ;
‘he might drum (o his heart’s content. ‘*And
| what’s the commisaion?” quoth the business-
Jike young man. The proprietor, amused,
'gamed & very libersl percentage. Before
the week was over somebody eles hud'to he |

‘things in thé genersl wutility liné. The.

‘goods. -In a moment be had developed
into a full-blown salesman. His eommission
on actual sales amounted for the first week
to'over $3O. The next week they were|
twice that. The proprietor’s eyes were
wider open than ever they dared peep be-,
' fore. Such push and enterprise,such success, }
were smazing from such a source. But he |
‘bad made a good bargain and he sticks te
‘it. Some of the white clerks objected a lit
