CLARA TO LOUISE.
Dear Louise :
Let us be ijlad that we are women
and are not concerned in politics.
Deception is the foundation of poli
tics. When a man is an applicant for
a position and declares that he
wouldn't have it for double pay
when he encourages you to seek
for the same position he wants him
self bo as to Oud out your influence
then he is a-good uolitmian. n '

very carelessly, mv belief is tou

dark path to travel.
WhenDr JchnR. Francis was
on the school board, he protended
when he was asked, that he could
not appoint a lady who sold her
position and many things he was
asked to do that he claimed could

a "professional negro," as some
people put it, of the Bruce and
Douglass stripe, without their ora

appointment as collector of taxes
to his color, aud it being determin
ed to appoint one black ReDubliuan
on the new board, he was selected
as the most suitable man of color
for the place, overlooking many
.uistnct colored men who had work

It may not surprise many people
to know that Mr. Cook secured the
written and verbal indorsements of
several Democrats, real aud alleg

to this is largely due his selection

Cook the opinion was freely express
ed that his appointment was a
bluuder and an outrage. It was
generally oeiieved that his selection
was entirely dno in hiQ i .,,i
politics and his willingness to serve
certain property interest to the
best of his ability. The Commis
sioners it was alleged, following in
the iootsteps of certain illustrious
Presidents, had discovered a six
teenth amendment to the Constitu
tion, requiring a discrimination in
favor of colored men in appoint

have already appointed two colored
