The public Is invited to be present to near these great speakers, some of the best in the race. Prof. Jackson has recently returned from Europe and Africa where, he made an extensive trip looking Into the condition of the Negro race In general. It will be of every walk of life to be present and hear him. The Board of Education of the city will be present to hear this great man speak. Farmers day of the Institution Is Thursday from 10:30 a. tu. to 6 p. m. All of the farmers of Upsher County that are interested in the lat est methods of farming will be present. The State will furnish us one of their best and ablest spakers to address them on that occasion. "SUMMER SCHOOL." Our summer school will open June 6th and will continue through for ninety days. Teachers have secured and will be present at the open ing exercises which will take place at 10:30 Tuesday. June 6th. Mr. Woods Mayor of the City of Gilmer will deliver the address of welcome to the teachers at the opening. Teachers from all parts of the County and students who desire to take Domestic Science, Domestic Art, Shorthand and Typewriting, special courses In Scientific Farming will be given full attention. Special attention Is given to Shortland and Typewriting during these 90 days by two of the most skilled Negro Shorthand writers in the State. They are ladles of special talent. Every one In this county and adjoining counties should take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. There Is a demand for stenographers throughout this state and our girls and boys should avail themselves of this privilege to improve themselves along all lines of the latest methods of education. The feummer School will be conducted on the campus of the Dickson Colored Orphanage every year beginning on the 6th day of June. Any boy or girl who graduates from the high school course with Domestic Science and Domestic Art, Truck Gardening will be given a permanent first grade certificate In the State of Texas without having to take further examina tion. This is going to be the largest school of Its kind in America and we are appealing to the young men and women of the Negro race to stop and consider this. The Negro Is going back instead of going forward. The great masses of them are going hack uneducated and undeveloped and they are trying to measure arms with the white race In every way In their habits, dress, society and any race born yesterday with no means, no education, no hacking are bound to fall and go back unless they grasp at every oppor tunity and for education. Let us stop trying to Imitate the American white man In society, in politic, etc., and let us get together and buy homes, farms, beautify them and make farm life what It ought to be. 50 years ago the old Negro who had been emancipated began to try to edu cate his children and to buy land and get out in the country and mak his honui happy and protect his own; but the Negro of today Is trying to break away from the old habits and customs and Is trying to get social equality. He Is so wild over his relationship to this country, his social features that he Is attempting to equalize himself with the white man that he Is forgetting and losing sight of what Is right, his duty as a man and his duty to GoJ. Leaders in the pulpit should teach the people to get their own homes, make themselves comfortable, buy land, get in the country and stay out of the city. There are too many who are trying to get by in this world without working, without the sweat of the brow, I may be criticized by making this broad statement which is the truth and I am ready to go to battle and prove every word that I have said.
