■» Negroes Need Apply.
is no better evidence that negroes are not desired as office holders in the North than is tar nished by the turning down of a colored candidate by the white voters of ths aristocratic town oi Larchmont, N. Y. A negro named Tom Harris was seeking the Rep. ublican nomination for receiver of taxes, and he had the support ol all the colored waiters and coach men of all the wealthy residents of Larchmont, but in the conven tiou he was defeateb by a vote ol 90 to 34, tho nomination going to one Evans, the town baker a white man. President Eoosvelt may defend his negro policy as mush as he pleases but it is evi dent that the people,of the Nor'b Republicans anb Democrats alike, are just as determined as this) oi th* South not to recognize the s >cial or political equality of the negroes. They refuse tj accept tfce President’s opinion that the negro should have the privilege oi run ning for office and whenever be runs they take great pleasure in burying him under an avalanche oi votes as they did Tom Harris at Larchmont. On the doors of the political offices in the North Is posted a sign which reads: No Negroes Need Apply.” N. O. State. Why Some People Do Not Marry. Much is being said on the sub ect, and many reasons are given why so many men and women rs xuse or neglect to marry. Of course there nas been no change in human nature The sentiment of love is just as powerful as ever it was. and the sexes are just ss necesary each for the companion* ship of the other Neverthleas many young men fear to marry because they are notable lomain tain a wife in the style in which hii supposes she will demand to live, dome of the happiest and most prosperous couples haye married poor. Any girl with the right sort .of bringing up is wil ling to share her husband’s lot if ho be an honorable, industrious and worthy man, and any such man can support a wife if she be a true woman and not a butterfly of fashion la a household where the man works and earns, and where the wife keeps the gear together, there is no such thing as poverty. The small beginning^ are gilded with love and aae m t unified by brave endeavr and wt rthy hopes, and there hap pine>s abides. But if people mar* ry for show and realize too late tl at they are not able to make or maintain it according to their id ;as, then theirs is the abode oi disappointment and misery An old gentleman, who in his time bad held high public trusts ot honors, told^the writer of those lines that when he married his wife, the daugter of a disting uished family, he took her to a cabin in a mountain region, where lie owned land, and "they commenced life in the most prim itive fashion, the earthen floor of the cabin being covered with the skins of beast killed in hunt ing. They were not afraid to be gin life under such conditions because their humble home was illuminated by love. Years after wards, when they lived in grand mansions, anid all the gsand sur roundings of luxury, they were perhaps no less happy, bat cert ainly no more happy than when they were in the mountain cabin. The young people of the working closes are not afraid to marry be. cause they are not afraid to work and they make up, after all,' the great body of the1 people. One reason that sets not a few women against the nuptial knot is that they have had in too much expe rience with idle and worthies* male relatives they have had in too many instances to support such drunken or loafing fathers . or brothers, and they are «fraid to take the chances with a husband who may be no better. Without doubt, n en are steadily, if not rapidly, degenerating under the intemperate use of liquor, tobacco and other drugs. It should be rem. era hered that while wine and beer have been in use from early times, alcoholic liquors, like Whukey, brandy, rum and gin have been known but a few cent nries, while tobacco came into we after the the discovery of A-1 WHEN LIFE'S AT STAKE The moat timid man will take any chance of escape.
