' Sunday, Feb. 17, we had the un
expected pleasure of an address "by Dr.
Trumbull, editor of the Sunday Schdol
Times. The basis of his address was
his trip to the Holy Land several
years ago.
Mr. Allen, of Walden, addressed the
Y. M. C. A. February 17. His subject,
which was well handled, was, "Am! I
My Brother's Keeper?" The president
of the Walden Y. M. C. A. was present

One decided change was noted In
our Southern trip: We did not see
tho large crowds of loafers hanging
around the depots. Any number of
ebony faces could constantly be seen
all along the entire route, but they
were employed in different vocations.
The avenues have opened up all over
the country and the wage earners need
not stand idle and say, "No man has
hired me." The harvest Is great and
the laborers are few. What a great
opportunity has come to our race and
just at the time when so many things
are being said and done against us;
here comes the call for the laborer.
Let our race prove loyal to the call and
prove ourselves worthy of the confi
dence imposed in us; do a day's work
for a day's pay, and give no opportun
ity to have the country filled with for
eign emigrants to supplant the race

Daytona is owned by Mr. Duncan, a

fifty thousand dollars per year, which
he has built up from a very small be
