The class who are coming, however, receive but scant considera tion. It is refreshing to notice in many of our race papers and In tome of the tributes to the struggling en ergy of the undiscovered Negroes. They are not great In the sense that they have won fame in some of our schools or colleges, or have been eloquent orators, politicians, etc., but they have taken a barren waste and made it blossom as the rose. They have produced something They have "y thrift and frugality laid by a snug The Colorado Eagle.

Dear Sisters of Chickasaw Court No. 84: As this is the beginning of a new year it is the time to lay down old grouches, old; ; resentments, .yold hate and old mental sores. ' . It) s ia slight to our Maker to carry debasing things like these into the new year and' the untlred life that lies before us. Let us forget the slights, the wounds, the blows, the bitter ingratitude that fell to us during the past year. If one was unkind to you, if . another be trayed you and abused you, rise above them and say, "I will forget it." Our enemies mean for us to remember, for in remembering, we suffer. So let us forget, then we triumph over our enemies. We do not know what is to come, yet we are hopeful and confident that in the flight of time, old sorrows will be forgotten and our grief will lose Its keenest sting. We are face to face with new con ditions. We are inspired with new hopes and new purposes. Hope will always rise in our breasts, and for that reason there Is always some thing consoling and comforting.' no ! matter what our present condition may bo( We have got to prepare ourselves for the sorrows of life that are sure to come upon us.

ORDtB FROM national Baptist Publishing Board,. 523 SECOND AVE., NORTH, Na.hTllU. - - TENN. informed that the Cuban men did not think very much of the Church; thJt they thought it a 'good place for wo men and children to go occasionally, but for men, the bar-room, the cock pit, the bull fights, baseball or polo game were much better. The pre vailing religion on the island is Cath olic, the Spaniards being most largely Catholic. There is not much evi dence of the Protestant faith in the island. Dishop Candler and the Bap tists are making strenuous efforts to establish churches of their faith among the natives. The conditions of vice described In this letter do not apply to the Ameri cans and Spaniards who own the wealth, intelligence and respectability of the island, but to the native Cu bans, black and white. The Cubans do not believe much in marrying. They largely believe that a man is entitled to as many wives a9 he can control. They seem' to be a set of floaters, who have nothing sub stantial in tlieir minds. Gambling chicken fights, and other vices of the basest sort, seem to occupy the minds and time of the people. Cuba is a great missionary ground for the Chris tians, and Bishop Candler and other Protestants cannot find, any field more fertile than the reclaiming of Cuba for the Lord. Ma rch 3
