Elsewhere in this issue will be
found a circular addressed to school
officers throughout the South, by
('ol. Thos. D. Boyd, President of
the Louisiana State Normal School.
The object of this circular is to
put on foot a movement to celo
brate, in a deserving manner, the
centennial anniversary of the birth
of the South's great benefactor,
n George Peabody. This movement
is one that should attract the sym
- pathy and enlist the support of
every citizen of the South. The
celebration of this day should not
be confined to schools. There is
not a man, woman or child in the
South who has not been benefitted,
directly or indirectly, by the mu
nificent gift of this great philan
thropist. It is, therefore, meet
and proper that our people in every
avenue of life should join hands to
t make the 18th of February, 1895,
a red-letter day in the history of
It has been truly said that "The
best study of mankind is man;"
and it might be as truly said that
"The best study for mankind is
ºman," when the subject possesses
the noble attributes of the great
and good man whose name heads
this article. In doing honor to
this patriot, we not only give ex
pression to one of the noblest
qualities of which man is capable,
gratitude; but, by thus honoring
him, we serve to - upon the
youth of our land s of great
and lasting benefit.
No worthier object ever appeal
ed to the support of the Press,
and we hope to see our brothers
all over the South take up this
matter and push it to a suoesusful
