PLEASED WITH HIS SPEECH Editor of The Bee: I write to congratulate you on your Emancipation Day speech. The speech is wortny 01 consiaerauon ana an yuu said I trulv understood. It gave me joy to read it as well as those to whom I read it. I would have written before now but I have been sick. I herewith enclose to you my subscription lor six months more and close by saying, long live The Bee. Respectfully, Rev. G. V. E. Kendall. Tnhn's M. E. Church in urange, J j - mA aitani Atio tirac was a grana success ahu cvw) .- .. highly pleased with the pictures that were painted by her class. The pictures were all nicely made and reflected much credit on her as a teacher. The essays and music were grand. The scholars made her several valuable presents. BAYONNE PICTORIAL EXHIBITION The exhibition civen at Bayonne, N. t k,t Mice riara A. lohnson's class in art was a success. Her scholars did fine work, which was a great credit to her as an art teacher. We will say more about her exhibits next week. Miss Sallie N. Jett and Miss Emma G.

Here is Micheal O'Leary and John O'Day disussing Horn, the tailor, O' Leary who has his hand to his heart, is endeavoring to convince O'Day that Horn, the tailor, is the only man in town who has the faculty of shaping an ugly formed man into a polite gen tleman. If the readers of The Bee wish to be convinced that Horn is one of the greatest tailors in town, read The Bee next week and see for your selves, the fine cut of O'Leary's suit, while he is talking to his wife at one of the latest swell receptions. His wife is a young woman any way and had decided to give him the ticket of leave man, but a friend advised him to go to Horn's ana nave a 510 or $15 sun 01 clothes, made to order. O'Leary has decided to try Horn anv way and see what he can do. Now, if you want a fine summer suit; one that will fit vou. don't delav. but go to Horn's 637 F street, n. w. and be suited. The latest summer goods have ar rived and you should not fail so select one. Mr. Horn has the reputation of civmg you what your money calls for and if you are not satisfied your money is refunded. It is everything in dealing with a man who will give you a guarantee and a good nt. iur. Horn is that man. He endeavors to please you and if you will not be satis fied it is no fault of his. If you want find trousers made to order and in the latest style, Horn, the tailor, is the place to patronize. If this was idle talk The Bee was indulging in, its patrons would say that Horn is not one of the best tailors in town. His goods are first-class. You can get imported goods that would cost wnn Hnnhle the. nrice elsewhere. You can get all shades and qualities. This is what the people want. You have no money to throw away on worthless goods and if you want to economize and at the same time get the worth of your money, Horn, the tailor, 637 F street, n. w. is the man. The readers of The Bee are requested to look at Mr. Horn's transformation nf the above mctures in the next TALENTS MISAPPLIED. SHOEMAKERS INSTEAD OF LAWYERS. BUTCHERS INSTEAD OF DOCTORS. BLACKSMITH'S INSTEAD OF COUN SELS, ETC. Rev. Dr. Rankin, President of the Howard University preached a very stinging sermon on last Sunday after noon in the presence of the largest au- cience mamas ever assembled in the chapel. "The world is full of misfits; poor ministers, doctors, lawyers, who would have made prime shoemakers or black smiths," said President Rankin of Howard University, in his baccalau reate sermon yesterday before the graduating class of Howard University, and in the presence of a large audience, ai Aimtsw iauKin memorial L,napei. The theme of Dr. Rankin's address was the necessity for every person to have employment, and his text was from Luke, xix, 13 : "And He called His ten servants and delivered unto them ten pounds, and said unto them : 'Occupy until I come.' " Dr. Rankin said, in part: "The great want of every man is sometaing to do, something he can do. The true aristocracy of the nniverse is not made up of the idlers; not of those who are ministered unto, but of those who min ister. These are the titled class. These are knighted by God. There is no law of life but this. The other is a law of idleness, uselessness and death. Cwrfy Hair Straightened. The curliest, kinkiest hair straigh tened and made glossy and smooth bjrKINKARA.

It is the men who stand idle in the market place to whom the devil gives employ ment. There is no better safeguard aerainst crime and sin than occupation ; than having something to do. A pick ax and a spade are a surer preventive of wrong-doing than legislation. It is while men are idle, hanging around drinking places, or gossiping around corner groceries, that they concoct their schemes of crime The men whom we see with dinner pails in their hands, in the early morning, making their way to their places ot empioy men, engaged in providing for their own ; these are the men against whom are no charges of irregular conduct. Nor are they lodged in the police sta tions. The police do not know them. "That desperate sentiment, the world owes me a living, and a living I will have, has this element of truth in it. The world maKes a living pobbiuic fnr Pprv man if he will earn it ; if he will accept this possibility. She owes the living and she will pay the debt to the industrious. The places for work in this world are almost innumerable, and the men who are out of work are not usually the men who re shirking and skulking from it. Or they want some other work than what the world offers them and what they can get. THE OFFICE SEEKHKS.

Central Building, Baltimore, Md. From The Weekly Express. The President in appointing Chea tham to be the Register of Deeds in place of the "old liners," has recog nized that element in the party which must fight its future battles. From The Wichita Tribune. The appointment of Henry P. Chea- n-im nfMnrth Carolina, to the Re- cordership of the District of Colum bia, to succeed Mr. Taylor, of Kansas, is a most fitting compliment to the young Afro-American republicans of the country. The President has shown in it his appreciation of the young negro blood of the party that supported him so hardilv in the Presidential canvass. Mr. Cheatham is a gentleman posses sing rare and excellent attainments ; n ic rpmntc from the old eane of ne groes that have loafed around Wash ington ever since the days of recon struction, misrepresenting the race. No man since the days of our lamented Douglass will the negroes of the Union point to with greater pride than Henry P. Cheatham. From The Kansas City Observor.l We commend the appointment of Hon. H. P. Cheatham, of North Caro lina, for Recorder of Deeds ol the uis trict of Columbia, and would like to see some of our Missouri boys get enmpthiner as we are a factor of the parly. From The Omaha Enterprise. The appointment of ex-Congress man Cheatham to the office ol Ke corder of Deeds should meet the henrtv annroval of all sections. There was quite a number of prominent men in the race from all various sections of the country. Some had to be left and we are of the opinion that the Presi dent made no mistake when he de cided to name a Southern man in the person of Mr. Cheatham. From The Weekly Tribune.

"If a man has nothing in him, can anything come out ? "A o-rent future, ereat occasions, come only to the man who has been improving his circumstances, so as to fit himself for them.
