man I would see that he would serve
colored people hereafter. I told him
that he was granted his license that
he might serve the public, and that
he was compelled by the provisions of
his license to-serve any one who paid
him. I further "asked him why he
had located in a district where the
majority of residents are colored

"Cash in advance," said the pro
prietor. "Twenty-five cents, please."
'Why charge me 25 when the price

I am a white woman and I do not
think any less of the negro race be
cause of their color. The majority of

its people for making all illegitimate
children legitimate by legislative act
When we think of a poor baby, with
its little hands, its faint cries, its
helpless, trusting soul, hurled into the
world against the law because the
parents loved lust and were selfish, it

We cannot expect much of our
present legislators, who probably
robbed birds' nests of their young
when they were young. They con

But Norway has taken the part of the
defenseless and ought to cause other
nations to blush with shame. Allen
