V vy m tcb depends upon the

mister. VV.ien it is understood
that a man is at the head of a

soon diffuse themselves through
the house, and the piety, or the

There are many white men
who are superior to Negroes hut
they are not the men who are

them —Omaha Enterprise.
Poor people are, as a rule, dis
p ’S°d to develop the luxurious
and extravagant side of life.
Tnis disposition would be lessen

that luxury is only an enticing
pleasure, a bastard mirth, which
hath honey in her mouth, gall in
her heart, and a sting in her tail.

Prom authentic sources, the

colored men at their pleasure.
We only have* to say. the colored
people shou d arm themselves
and not take it. Shoot them
down when you know you are to
he shot for naught. Tie* colored
papers should advise Negroes
not,, as much as possible, to ride
on a car. I' will nut do. Dm't
take everything. Die for your
rights. What right has the con
couductor to carry a concealed

Evolution of Man.
Evolution of the human race
has claimed considerable discus
sion for many years by the re
nown anthropologists, not only
.-f America but of European coun
tries- In the development by
hypothesis, it traces both the an
imal and vegetable kingdom to
one very iow form of life; con
sisting of a minute cell, and sup
poses this cell produced by or
from inorganic matter. Darwin
held that a living being of very
simple and low organization once
obtained, all animals and plants
were evolved or developed from
it by the operation of natural
laws. Some small approach to
the physical structure of man is
suppos d to be traceable in the
humble and shelless molluses
called Ascidians, which man's
hue of ancestry ran through the
lower vertebrae, the Monotremo
tors Mammals, other orders oi
the class, and finally the Anthro
poid Apes- The evolution theory
a , 1 % r o » i I'a n t* i rurin unH pnnplirprl
into by others of his elk are pre
dicated on false hypothesis.
There is no logical ground for
the assertion that man evolved
from species of the ape or mon
key tribe, and came to his pres
ent status by development. He
was created a man from the be
ginning with all the mental and
physical powers. It is true that
these have largely developed.
But at their very creation they
were perfect. The lower animals
can ne\ e n a *h that higher civili
zation enjoyed by man. They
were not created to attain it
