■» 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.”

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.

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
