We of'en wonder if the injection of the rac v issue at every turn by colored mnn themselves is not reupcmsible in large measure for the often 'harrow ing anxiety and consequent disappoint ments whir-h follow that agitation by colored men. We wonder if often men known by long practiced policy and eoncrete acts as great a?nd good friends aif- so embarrassed by having the race quesMon incessantly and insistently presved upon them that when they [are made to declare on a mythical is sue between their own race and the black racp they are not forced by cir cum stances to ftppear as favoring their own. The question: How do you stand cm t'he color line? so often raided by colored men is the same one inverted that is forced upon white po litical candidates by the Southern rab ble. If 'the candidate w does not de clare a policy of "Negro annihilation," "an .irrepressible conflict between the races, rendering it impossible for them to live vide by side," he is at once sac rificed to public sentiment. The proof of the pudding Is the eat ing. The test of the ability of the rat s to liv^ side by side and thus ta prosper is the fact that t'hey are liv ing side by side and they are prosper ing. The stand of a man white or black, upon the race question is his deeds and his work for or against -the rightfui. fair and square solution of that ques tion. The colored citizen, thinking too much and too often of himself as n separate nation within a nation, thus politely Segregates himself. His need less and eternal raising of 'the Issue 'himself cannot but lose him prestige and public favor, cannot but result eveutually in disaster to his own standing. Despite his points in com mon with Anglo-Saxons, t'he colored mau of this country, from the stand point of his ^racial self-consciousness, is prom? to assert his racial identity much more frequently than does the) Hebrew or Italian. The colored citi zen is an American citisen first, enti tled to all rights and privileges of all other Americans. If he will but think so and act so he will be treated so much sooner t'han now seems evident. Not long ago in a session of a plaster ers' union in this city a colored mem ber, fined for a clear infraction of the law, immediately proclaimed the race prejudice and persecution which the choir was inflicting upon him. Many colored lawyers and whit? ones, too, immediately raise the question of col or as a mitigating element of the of fense of their colored client. Social ly and in places of public accommoda tion the average colored man confi dently looks for the color line, and people generally find what they are looking for. I^et colored men (411 i t hysterically raising the color question ti^mselves 1 and there will be less race question raised by white men, there will be less of the dangerous race hysteria, whose pangs. the race too often feels through its sensitive skin, and whose anger it not infrequently invites upon itself. ?

At 9:30 o'clock Sunday morning a very ' interesting Sunday School ser vice was conducted by Superintendent of Missions, Rev. J. J.

In' the afternoon Rev. J. M. Wood ing, of Wevaoo, conducted the opening exercise. Mrs. J. I. Thomas opened the discussion on "Child Study.'* Jno. W\ Winston, a student of Livingston College, spoke on the subject. Rev. Turner delivered a very helpful ad dress on "Teacher Training." Rev. Turner is striving earnestly to raise the standard of Sunday School teach-' I ing. He !has an arrangement through , which he is giving an excellent train Mug course, which leads up to the. regular teachers .training diploma free, of charge. Resolutlops were passed urging that the school send up more money for missions. ' After the usual opeurag devotional* Sunday evening, Rev. Turner lead a strong resolution condemning the! use |of intoxicating d'rinks and pleading that all Sunday School offi cers use their influence persuading all voters to cast their ballots for the prohibition amendment in the fall elec ticu. The meeting was closed with a very excellent sermon by Rev. H. M. C. Reed, who used for his subject "Pray er." Rev. Reed in referring to dis tressing condition in mining sections pleaded with liis hearers to obey the laws of the State, avoid assembling with men in meetings that disregard civil authority and above all things be prayerful.

The sand bin, the slide, the giant stride, the horizontal bar, in door baseball diamond (for boys , and girls), courts for volley ball and tether ball, running track and jump ing pit, and a skating rink where ; the climate permits; these are some 'of the desirable features of an up-to date school playground, as planned by Mr. Henry S. Curtis in a bulletin just issued by the United States Bureau of Education. Mr. Curtis shows how the attitude of the pub lic has changed in the last ten years, since the great play movement burst upon us. The typical school play ground used to be as bare and for bidding as a prison;- the modern spirit requires that it shall be> roomy, inviting, well cared for, open at all times to the children,, and equipped with every safe means for enjoyable, profitable play. '' George Peabody College for the Training of Teachers, at Nashville, Tennessee, is attracting wide atten tion in its effort to raise a million dollars for its endownment fjind. The college is conspicuous for Its ; high aim. Believing that "the most Urgent educational need of the South is trained leadership," it seeks to I furnish that leadership. It seeks to , do for teaching in the South "what Harvard and Johnp Hopkins havo done for medicine, and what Teach ers College of -New York has done for teaching." The amount needed for the new undertaking is $1,500, 000, and the trustees of the Pea body fund have offered $500,000 provided the college will raise the million. | A striking instance of the prevail ing cosmopolitanism of American. I life is afforded by the German Pre* , byterian Theological School of the j Northwest, where a group of stu dents showed the following races represented: Jew, Bohemian, Mexi can, Carman, Slovak, Russian, Jap anese. The basis of the work of the school is German; a thoroughly equiped Bohemian course parallels the German course; and the sciences and mathematics are taught in Kng jliflh; while other languages are KAught as required. "In Rome, in the time of the Re I public, 64 days in every year were i MVr -*? 4|> .jdevoted to ipubljc festivals ?reooe nlzed by law. The American Re public has not reached such a num ber of holidays, but Its Bchools sur passed it long ago," says the current report of the United States Bureau of Education. The document points out, however that there Is now a wholesome trend away from the cus tom of granting an overabundance of school holidays.
