He was able, as no man 1 have ever known, to hide himself al>- solutcly behind the great cause for whit h he worked. He thought nothing atKH.t himself, but lie thought always of how he could serve. “The keynote of Dr. Frissell's life waw tho note of service to one's race, on** country, one’s God. It was not narrowed down to one or two races, but it Included the human race—man kind wherever there was a chance to serve.

C., formerly associate chaplain at Hampton Institute, read the prayer which Dr. Frissell himself offered less than two years ago at the funeral service of Dr. Booker T. Wash ington. “Thanks be to God, who glveth us the victory”—with these words Dr. Frissell opened the service held in memory of Hampton’s most distinguished gradu ate. These words were repeated again and again as an expression of Dr. Frls sell’s victorious life. Favorite Hymns. The Hampton school sang with rare feeling two Negro religious folk songs —“Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” and “My Lord, What a Morning”—which were dear to the heart of Hampton’s principal. The Rev. Laurence Fennlnger read appropriate selections from the Scrip tures, and the Rev. Dr. Herbert B. Turner offered the closing prayer at the church service. Scores of floral pieces covered the casket—mute wit nesses of the affection of white and colored people. The flowers were car ried from the church to the cemetery by Hampton gruduates. The funeral procession was headed by the well trained Hampton institute band. Then followed the Hampton ca dets, the girl students, the funeral car, the flower bearers, officers of liatterv D, Virginia field artillery und hundreds of Dr. FrissoH's friends from far and near. The service at the grave included the committment of the body by the Rev. Herbert B. Turner, prayer by the Rev. Laurence Feuninger and the singing of “My Faith Looks Up to Thee.” “Taps” was sounded by Hampton’s bandmas ter, uml again the battalion moved to the quickened step of martial music. LOYAL IN PEACE AND WAR. What a Northern Paper Saya About ths Colored American. Commenting editorially on the pro test of the colored citizens of New York against lynching tlie Newark (N. J.) Ledger in part says: “The Negro has had ample cause for bitter complaint not alone because of the East St. Louis outrage, but also be cause of other outrages of which he has been a victim as u result of race prejudice. “The American Negro has seldom been found lacking in courage and pa triotism when called upon to serve the country. lie is not found today among the disloyal, but, on the contrary, la ready and anxious to do his share to save for the world the freedom won for him by the Union armies fifty-flv# years ago. “Despite many handicaps and draw backs tl»© Negro has steadily advanced from the lowly position he occupied be fore the civil war. There ore excep tions, of course. There are the law breakers and the shiftless, but that is not u good reason for condemning the colored nice as a whole and subjecting the innocent and law abiding colored innn to outrage. “The colored man has a place and an Important place in our cosmopolitan population, and he is entitled to fair pluy and to all the encouragement and aid that can be given to him."

This dump having assay tests made on all sides gives we honestly believe that if you buy shares of stock In this Company now, a flattering future. You Will Never Regret if Assays from this old dump have varied from 20 to ounces of silver per ton with sufficient lead to pay the **ost of transportation and smelting; and this is not surprising, as the cost of smelting and shipping ore in the early days of The Snowdrift Mining Co. operations cost $90.00 per ton, making ore worth less than fIOO per ton valueless, while this same ore can now be loaded, shipped to Denver and smelted for less than $6.00 per ton. While this condition was unfortunate for the early operators, the rich ore dumps left by reason of the crude methods employed by the pioneer miners, means sure profit without risk for the investors and mining operators of today. Statement of Daniel Peters, superintendent of Snowdrift mine, March 15th, 2880, to Gen. B. M. McCook of New York: “At the time I worked the mine. I never saved ore that paid anything less than $lOO.OO per ton, my orders being to throw anything on the dump pile which ran under that amount. I have been in Colorado ten years and consider this one of the best in the state. The title of this mine is the oldest in the district.” General McCook was President of Snowdrift Company and ex-Governor of Colorado. DON'T DELAY—DELAY MEANS JAMES M.
