limit of human ingenuity.

THE CONDITION OF THE NEGRO
OF 1908.
By Otis Browder.—Continued.
How are we to get at this task? By
lamenting in n mournful tone, or be
led by some white man simply because
he made promises that would be next
to impossible to be fulfilled. Certainly
not. It is a wring way to find success.
Do not vote for the man that makes
such promises, but the one that will
strive to act in such a manner that
all will receive fair play regardless of
color.
We are in a position to show other
nations that we have the right calibre
to tear down the stone wall by fighting
with arms of education, and business
enterprises of the right kind, and that
we have learned the value of a dollar.
There is an unfortunate condition of
our race, that might be compared with
a cancer in the body, which will de
stroy th« whole body if not checked in
time. That condition is, we are too
much divided, resulting from a preju
dice among us that is equal to the
white man's against us. When wre
have learned in union there is strength,
and not depend on the white man for
-—*-——»
our daily bread, but go forth and
strive each and every one of us and
co-operate in a way that our boys and
girls will find employment among us
iand we can have it so by entering in
this great commercial world, in a
manner that will increase our financial
standing, to the place where we can
engage in business enterprises, on so
large a scale and in various lines.
Likewise can tall who are qualified find
employment, right in our midst, and
won’t have to be humiliated by asking
the white man to fulfill our demands.
The Negro race has progressed won
derfully in forty years in every line
of civilization, but there is yet much
to be accomplished. When we have
performed our best energies, and done
the duty that lieth near us, we have
learned to labor and to wait.

MATRIMONIAL.
Crittendon—Brewington.
Probably few people are aware of
the fact that Miss Lottre Brewington,
of this city, and I. C. Crittendon, late
of this city, but from Nashville, Tenn.,
are married, the ceremony having been
solemnized at Chicago some two or
three weeks ago. Miss Brewington is
quite an industrious young lady, and
was always employed, she was not
lazy, and therefore was never idle.
She comes of a respectable, quiet
family and Is the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. James Brewington, 118 So. 11th
St., being the youngest child, all the
other children being previously mar
ried. Mr. Crittendon is an ideal young
man, industrious, and possessing a
bright future. He is well liked fyy all
who know him and 'held himself cir
cumspectly before the public here in
Springfield, having purchased a beau
tiful home here at 1215 So. 17th St.
over a year ago. We hope this couple
will sail on and on over the billowy
ind tempestuous sea of life without a
ripple, or jot or even a harsh word,
and that their lives will be long to
gether, and of much fruition; that all
will be serene and elysian in life, and
after death a continuation of a still
more happiness, felicity, and ecstatic
existence.
