TO THE BUSINESS MEN. Advertise in the New Age. The col" ored people will transact their busi ness with you and extend to those their patronage who patronize their race paper. "A Folded Paper." By Nora E. Huling Siegel, (Nodle.) "Angels and ministers of grace de fend us" from our lack of self-appre clation and incentive to use what we recognize. Mind is a folded paper as it were. and to many of us remains folded. What good would Mrs. Will lam Post's "Freedom." for Instance, do us If we left it in the shape In which we received it from the hands of the postman? No good. except perhaps to be used as a policeman's club end I protest! Well, individual mentalities remain, mostly, in this state. Think of it! Is It not lament able? In some instances the indl vidual is as the man who suddealy comes Into possession of wealth; among other material things he laYs in a library of handsomely bound books. "Yes, the bindings must be of the most expensive quality. Neigh bor Jones has Just such a collection. baring the bindings, and his own must surpass Jones's" Matters not that Jones is also in possession of the contents of those volumes, by virtue of a life-long application In unfolding and studynig the same. Jones is a reputed scholar and scien tist, and materiality In unfoldlng slightly redo0nises Jones' posit~io an enviable one. So he Industrious ly reads the title and headings and uses these as wise invectives to whack his less fortunate fellows about the heads with. They stare at him with willing mouths and eyes agape. This is exactly the effect he anticipated and is content And this is exactly the effect that material wealth has upon the conscious senses until the subconscious be quick ened. The effect and end that this club bing enjoins is to arouse envy. Envy is all right, however; it begets ac tivity which is itself begotten of in quiry, and inquiry often follows on to a development of the subconscious mind. This subconscious mentality, however, is in possession of each in dividual, and is far superior to either Jones' possession, which is acquired by wrote or the library of superior bindings, for we have stored away a whole universe, yes, the wisdom of the ages, right within the sub-con scious mind, and all we need do is to unfold and read. This is true of health, wealth and wisdom. Ii fact, everything. The inner individual conscious ness has nothing to waste, therefore, it must necessarily bide our con scious recognition. But as we make use of what comes, more develops, and as we become able to appreciate it, the texture and beauty enhanses and the quantity multiplies. The individual mentality is like unto a Chinese paper puzzle: Very small and insigniflcent, appearing before opened, but how surprising is the effect upon proper manipula tlon. Mentality in construction is quite similar to the tiny green bud upon the bush. The bud in its develop ment has back of It the aid and abestment of the whole plant, nay more, the whole universe of earth, moisture and air, but not an atom is wasted in its fulfillment. The Individual mentality is the whole man, with the universe to draw on. and he may make use of himself to the uphuilding of a glor iously satisfactory end or the re verse. The universe will not desert him, though that effect is produced through his own ignorance of the laws of life and being; which man ifests in his lack of energy, Improper thought. Indifferent purpose, etc. The foregoing subject presented it self to me through suggestion; by being awakened each morning by whack whack of the morning papers as they are thrown against the sev eral doors, in the block, which open into the court. The newsboys twist them in shapes resembling clubs and give them a flip to the upper land ing. This saves th, boys ascending the second flight of stairs. When I was about fourteen years of age I suddenly conceived an idea that I would read the whole con tents of our large library. I decid ed with industry I might accomplish the feat within six months. That seemed an eternity. but I concluded I could hold out that long. The conception was induced by hearing a noted lecturer upon bacteriology. His lecture was illustrated by mic roscopic views of insects, snakes. etc. His knowledge was surpass ingly wonderful in my estimation and I determined to become his sec ond in short order. I plodded along all that Sabbath afternoon. The weather wet as it frequently is in Kentucky, I could not be out. so for that day circumstances seemed to further my project. I began the digest by opening an "Encyclopedia of Useful .nowledg:." volume one. There were thirteen of them. I read on steadily the whole afternoon. At evening's approach I counted those I had read and divided the whole number of pages the volumes con tained by the number I had read and figured out that in six months with six hours study per day. I would hardly accomplish the peru sial of two volumes. Imagine my chagrin. This placed such a dam per upon my aspirations that I there by gave up the whole plan. His wis dom. however, acted upon my men tality as a stuffed club. I ever aft erwards desired knowledge. Later on in life I found that my childish idea had not been so wihl as may be and that I held the unrecognized signal to the whole lib. rary and more, right within my own being and there was no need for me to sit glancing over old digests. I found by a thoughtful application of life's experiences I might attain any end I desired. Oh yes, I need be diligent. After the subconscious mind is awakened and we rollow the spirit there is no lagging. The spirit is no laggard, at the same time there Is no haste. Just time enough. Through application of the fuller con(cption of being all things that trable so that no duty was Irksome. Irksomeness remains in the con UCotns ruling. This is the point that I would be defended of in the beginning of my article. Defended of the lack of an incentive to make use of as much energy as I recog aize. for that means only may more come; may I progress, develope. These pigmy mertalities not regen crated are helpless. Indeed. SAD NEGRO MINISTERS. Whenever Booker T. Washington talks he says something that is w+onr 1stening to. A few weeks •go this great negro addressed a gathering of his people in New Or leans. Most of them were mnlisteth. a fact which makes the remarks of Washington all the more pithy and courageous. Discussing the negro ministers he said in part: "There are few influences at thte present moment which are working so much harm in connection with the develop' bent of our people as the actions of the Ignorant and immoral negro ministers. I mean the ministers who have no home, who do not own a toot of land; who have no bank ac counts; ywho spend their time prowl" lag from one plantation to another. preaching here a little, and there a little, and in one community a few weeks and in another a few weeks. This class of ignorant, immoral and shiftless ministers are responsible, you know, for the ruin of families and for the bringsng down of con demntiotk upon our race. In most cases I do not hesitate to say that the people would be better off with out say ministers than with the class of ministers to whom I have referred. "Many of these men have gone into the ministerial profession simply with a view of escaping work with their hands. Mr. Washington might have added that the shiftless, demoralizing neg ro minister is not confined to the plantation of the south. They have found their way into every cit, and Here in Bait Lake we have had negro ministers of the gospel who prostituted their holy calling and made their race a laughing stock. Negro churches have been turned into meeting places for political or ganizations and from their pulpits the so-called pastors have urged their congregation to vote one ticket or an other. It is unfortunate for the negro race that such things are possible and the sooner they secure minis ters who will not stoop to the dift .f politics, the better off they will be.-Salt Lake Herald, Nov. 19, 1902 THEATRICAL NOTES.

The programme offered by Herr. mann the present season contains many novelties besides several new. and very attractive illusions. Herr mann is the most remarkable expert of legerdemain ever seen upon the stage. Of the new illusions intro duced. "The Princess Mahomeda" Ins probably the most mystifying. Herr mann introduces a young lady whom he hypnotizes, places on a brilliantly lighted couch and then causes her to slowly rise into space. To show his audience she has no wire or other support he passes a large hoop over her -everal times and then slowly descends her to the stage again. It is a most mystifying illusion and baffles analysis. A Chinese mystery called "Voyage Instantaneous" Is al so a large. showy and very attractive illusion, which creates much talk and thor.ughly mystifies. Herrmann is accompanied by the musical Gool mans, whose, interpolation of musical numbers on numerous instruments adds materially to the performance. in presenting "Over the Fence." a three-act musical farce comedy by C. Herbert Kerr, to the amusement going public of Butte next week, Manager Sutton will have offered one of the most successful attractions before theb public this season.

On Tuesday and Wednesday at the' Broadway will be presented Edwin Milton Rolal's comedy drama of "Frleds.' The company is certainly a strong one, and one well calculat ed to bring out the pure wit and epi gramatic bits that abound. The story is a simple one. A poet and a musician, young men with one dress suit between them and two good sized hearts, live together and hunt elusive fame. Even when the we Jack helps Adrian through the dif ficultics that hedge Marguerite about. She is a singer of noble birth, but she doesn't know it. A director of the opera house does and uses this knowledge to further his own ends. The interests of the story is admir ably sustained throughout, the plot is consistent, the incidents are crisp and the dialogue is forcible, witty and appropriate.
