The young people of the race, especially, are slipshod to a degree that was whipped out of their fathers and grandfathers long ago. The reason is said by this black-skinned Jeremiah to be false teaching by men I of his own race. As there is no place in the busy world of today for the slovenly toiler, the indifferent or the unskilled work man, Mr. Thomas proposes a remedy for the unfortunate existing conditions. It is a "return to the soil." Back to the country life of the old days our His regeneration must be worked out by himself, says Mr. Thomas, and that must come through a "return to the soil", land ownership, isolation of the race, enlightened teaching, indus trial education, protection from . de bauched politics, judicious oversight by honorable and tfioughtful white men, assimilation of American ideals, and cultivation of contentment with out apathy. Writing an answer to the often put question, "Can I Make a Farm Pay?" Prof. Bailey, of Cornell, gives in the World's Work for March some good advice.

It would make him inde pendent in a way of which the younger generation of the blacks never dream ed. Coupled with this solution must come land ownership and individual responsibility. The wrijter sees in this scheme, properly worked out, a grand university for the negro, in which he would be, in the highest sense, helped to help himself. He would, thinks Mr. Thomas, gain that faculty of Intelli gent forward action, which he now so conspicuously lacks. He advocates the establishment of negro communities of landowners, with schools, churches, workshops, stores, and all else that is needful in modern industrial life, own ed and managed by negroes. He be lieves that the association of the two races . is tbe worst thing that could happen, and the most formidable bar rier to the real advancement of the negro race. . The negro, says Mr. Thomas, is a savage still. He has all tbe savage traits,' that are only glossed over in some .cases by purely external and imi tative changes. He does not think or reason, he does not know what he wants or how to .get it. He has no deep seated respect for law and order. in the way in which we look at things Thoreau rejoiced when it rained, be cause he knew that his beans were hap py. One day my man was agitated be cause the woodchucks were eating the beans. He would go to town at once and buy a gun. I asked him how many beans the woodchucks would probably destroy. He thought from one-eighth to one-quarter of an acre. Now. one-quarter of an. acre of field beans should bring me a net cash re turn of three or four dollars. I told him that he could not buy a gun for that money. If he had a gun. he would waste more time killing the wood chucks than the beans would be worth. But the worst part of it would be that he would kill the wodochucks. and at daylight morning after morning I watched the animals as they stole from the bushes, sniffed the soft morning air. and nibbled tbe crisp young leaves. Many a time I had spent four dollars for much less entertainment. My neighbors thought that I ought to cu out the briars in the' fence corner. told him that I liked to see' the briars there. He remarked that some folks are fools. I replied that it was fun to be a fool." Facing me Faiare. There comes a time to most women when they must face the future of wife hood and motherhood. What that future has in store for them depends largely upon themselves. To a healthy woman tne obligations and consequences ot marriage are a lasting happiness. To a woman suf fering from irreg ularity or other ailments of the sex, marriage may prove a mockery and motherhood a misery. Where such irregularity exists Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip tion can De nsea with the assurance that health will speedily be re stored. It is the most reliable med icine known to medical scienefc for the cure of diseases which af fect the delicate womanly organs. "Favorite Pre scription" is a non-alcoholic medicine and is also free from opium cocaine and other narcotics. "At an earlv Starr of married life. writes Mrs. Flora Am, of Dnllas, Jackson Co..

Did some one whisper that there was going to be a city election in this city in five or six weeks? There is not sign of it on the surface.

It is hard ly likely that there will be any change for the better, since the better classes of people, the business men especially are so apathetic.

Mr. Thomas is not one of the young er school. He is a man of superior in telligence, and was a lawyer and law maker in South Carolina during the re construction period. He has watched the course of his race from bodily slav ery to a form of industrial slavery, for which latter bondage he does not blame the white man, nor the capitalist, nor the social system, but the negro him self.
