SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1913. The Peabody Fund. 1\ .> We doubt very much whether f Mr. Peabody would have left his millions just in the manner he # did in 1866 if he could have fore seen the ma?ner in which it has been handled. Not that the fund has'nt been honestly used but rather the manne?. Although given for the help of the entire population of the South, the Ne gro, when the totals are consid ered, has been treated as though he was not a large part of that population. Furthermore there seems to have been certain mem bers of the board whose chief object was to see just what plans they could carry through that would give as little to the Negro as possible. If there is any part of the South's population that needed the money of this Yankee philan thropist, it certainly is the Ne gro. There is not a real normal school in the whole South for the training of colored teachers maintained by any of the States, and yet that board never attemp ted to establish one. The idea seems seems to prevail that the Negro can just teach any how. But it is different when it comes to other races, training of the best is necessary. And now there is a quarrel in South Carolina ov er this good yankee's money ?tat Wi Carolina doesn't think'she ^mimm, attic_~~ Civilisation upheld in Missis sippi. A few days ago, an innocent Negro was lynched in that law less State named Mississippi. The News Dispatch for once said that the Negro "would not con fess." That was certainly won derful, for who ever heard of a lynching before when the vic tim did not "confessf" The mob, which by the way seems to be the agency whereby civilization is now taught and up held, was not satisfied, it want ed a Negro who would confess The victim was found and promptly bound to an, iron pump in the court yard. Wood, well saturated with kerosene, was piled around him, a lighted match applied and a thousand or more gentle, refined, cultured and re ligious spectators got a first class demonstration in the useful arti of roasting. The officers of the law were interesting observers, they know who the chief cooks were for there was no attempt at disguise* No, nothing will be done; the coroner's jury will promptly find a verdict of "death caused by parties unknown to the jury." Of course that's all, must not j civilization be upheld? And is not that the way to do it? Court I houses are not made for any such j thing as that. That's old fash- j ion, the mob is the latest thing. j Furthermore how can mobs learn to roast such high priced meats as beef, pork, lamb, etc, if they occasionally cannot practice on such cheap things as "niggers?" But Let the juries acquit; have they power to heal the field's black scorch? Can they banish memory of the wild-beast-mad dened hour and the glare of the Obscene torch? Nay verily. The ghost of the slayer slain, escaping the fagot and cord, shall darken the face of the day; The verdict of man is in vain Hearken the voice of the Lord, "I will repay." The Black Touch. Legend tells us of a king who was so endowed that everything he touched turned to gold. Per haps in many years to come, there may be a legend handed down to the generations yet to be telling of a people who once lived in a place called America which had what might be call the Black Touch. The peculiarity of the touch is that anyone not of that race coming in contact with it was forever undone. That certainly seems to be the case now. There is no white man in the State today who is in public or semi public life that dares stand out boldly for abso lute fair and squire dealing with the Negro according to the privi leges of an American citizen. There are many who believe i n such but they sing it low for fear of the "Black Touch." Most every legislator takes pains to see that he speaks and votes so that in after years the ghost of this spectre does not rise up against him. Es pecially will this be done now because of the character of the last campaign for governorship. It is really amusing to see just how a recommendation for a lit tle money for Negro education is couched, it seems that every line is all but an apology, Oh, if such conditions did not exist! How good would it be if things could just go on their merits. Who wou\d not feel better? Who would not say that it would be better for all concerned? May the power of the "Black Touch" soon pass away and be forgotten. The "Hotel Jackson." While it is not our policy to ad vertise individuals in these col umns, yet we must by way of commendation call attention to this splendid enterprise. It has long been a reproach to the col ored population of this city that none seem to have business sa gacity enough to open up a clean . up-to-date place where tra velo 'S No '.onger ?oes'-web reproach lie for Mr. and Mrs. Jackson have provided a place where the most exacting may be satisfied. NpT where can a better fitted cafe be found than that run in connec tion with the hotel. Neat, clean and well furnished is it and Ithe service therein is first class in every particular. Now, let the colored people in other sections do likewise and some of the dis advantages of the colored trav eler will at least be done away with. Mr. and Mrs. Tom Jack son need to be congratuluted.

JOB PRINTING.-The Indus trial Printing Company is turn ing out a number of very hand some jobs. People who know good printing when they see it, ask: 4 'What white office did that work?" When informed that it was done by colored men, there joinder usually isthat "the work does not look like that done by Negroes." We are it when it comes to job printing. Try us with a job.

"The Meaning of Jehovah, ii makcth rich, amt Uc addcth no narrow therewith."-Proverbs 10.-ti lt. V. CHE l?ible teaches (hat tbere are uot many rich, great wise or learned, who enjoy the Loni's special favor, but chiefly the poor of this world, rich In faith. Bul whoever concludes from this thal God is prejudiced against the rich, or that all the rich are iniquitous and have gained their wealth through fraud, errs grievously. God ls uo respecter of persons. Ills estimation is from ! the standpoint of the heart There are both good aud bad rich men, just as there are both good and bad poor. Abraham, though Terah'u youngest son, at the death of his father doubt less inherited all that remaiued of ht? possessions. Including the share of Sarah, Abra ham's wife and fist half-sister. Some JSF\ hu ve erred in the /?^VN?T^SH" study of the *^0^V chronology of the >~* narrative.

After Abraham had accepted the Di vine call and become a sojourner in Canaan, his flocks and herds increased greatly, under (Jud's blessing. Others of God's servants in the past were greatly blessed with riches; foi in stance. Job. Hut the blessing or the Lord very rarely makes wealthy Ills saintly people during Mils Gospel Age It may be asked. Why this change in God's dealings? The reply of the Scriptures ls that up to the time of Christ. God's blessings were to tuen as men; but since then God's saints an* "New Creatures In Christ." The terms of discipleship are that they sacrifice their claims to all earthly riches, and blessings, to become heirs of God and Joint-heirs with Jesus Christ to the Heavenly inheritance. God dealt with Abraham as a friend and promised him earthly blessings. But He accepts Je sus and His followers as BONA, ami promises them Heavenly things. Abraham's Friends Not Joint-Heirs. Lot wns a mau nearly Abraham's age. the son of Haran. God did not call Lot, nor any other of Abraham's relatives, but merely himself, to he the recipient of the promises. This did not hinder Lot from being with his uncle, but permitted him to share the bless ingB of Divine providence, which gu'.d ed Abraham's affairs. Slmllarijw the spiritual children of Abraham hl3n? ?ve heirs to thc ??H^ft^ME- - ?'.\.;.'!'..?ti:- .\\;$E3mare a reflex ble&t$$ of spiritual influence through assort:* tion with them. These spiritual children of Abraham. Christ and His consecrated followers, are particularly specified as the heirs of the A bra ha mic Promise. (Gala tians 3:29.) They All have a faith and a spirit of obedience similar to Abra ham's. Jesus is their Head, as well as their Redeemer; and they become His disciples by a covenant of sacrifice, similar to His own. Riches Often Bring Trouble. God's blessing upon Abraham, shared by Lot. brought strife between their servants. Abraham perceived that the two families had better part Lot as sented. Abraham gave him his choice of country, and Lot chose the most fer tile-the Plain of Sodom. Lot made bis home In Sodom, while bis flocks and herds were pastured in the region surrounding Doubtless Lot's wife had to do with the choice. The fnmlly lived there three years The riches of the country had a debasing effect upon the / /f??$\ i people. Lot's J f\*5??^J!? righteous s o u I ??

Sarah was a real helpmate and co-labored faithfully with him for their accomplishment In these two families, both well Intentioned, we see Illustrated the difference between seek lng chiefly the Divine approval and seeking chiefly earthly welfare. Many Christian people today make mistakes similar to Lot's. The/ allow conflicting earthly Interests io sen. arate them from God's favor. Thus they Involve themselves and their fain j Hies in the snare of the wicked. The j Master's advice should be remembered -"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and lils righteousness." God's Blessing Makes Rich. Whoever has God's blessing is rich indeed, regardless of the amount ?>l earthly prosperity. Those whom thc Lord makes rich with His promises and His favor have the Joy which otb ers vainly seek. These true riches arc obtainable by all who learn of God's favor In Jesus Christ God's Covenant with Abraham wai not Heavenly, but earthly, and to ar earthly people. But the seed is two fold-an earthly and a Heavenly Recd ? The promises of God appertaining fi these two seeds are.very difieren. ::? our next Study will show. .i MADAME G. J.
