A VITAL QUESTION, Where are the negro teachers of Nevada county, and what are they doing? This is a question of vital importance and much consideration. Where are you. and what are you doing? Are you contemplating teaching this summer? If so, how about abil ity to teach, and be recognized as being well qualified? Did you attend the County Institute? Did you go into the last public exami nation, or were your licenses about to expire and you had them extended? If you did not attend the institute and examination, why didn’t you? Then, how much information have you reap ed from institutes, examinations, observation and social contact with your intellectual superiors? I must say right here that Neva da county has the most uncon cerned set of negro teachers in the state. The department of Public In struction goes to the expense of preparing work for the (bounty Institutes to be held in the sev eral counties of the State' This work is well out-lined, and is feasible of being comprehended by anyone applying for a third, second or first grade license, and it is “whosoever will may come,’’ If you remain away from the in stitutes and examinations, how can you expect to elevate your self in the art of teaching? We receive a smaller salary than any other set of couuty teachers in the state. Why? It is really be cause we do not avail ourselves of the opportunities that come within our grasp. Instead of be ing opportunity makers or oppor tunity takers we are opport unity torsaKers. lei, we nave me an- j dacity to argue with directors for better salaries and complain to the examiner for better grades. When we ask the directors for an increase of salary, they ask us for an accession of grades. We evade the query put to us as teachers, by saying: “Awl know I dun better an dat: jes dat ole ‘zaminer didn’t give me whut I made.” The foregoing dialect should be enough to annul our contract right there. Did you ever take a civil service exami nation? If not, then you ought to, and you would learn some i thing of the rigidness of gsading papers. My advice to you, fel low teachers, is to prepare your self for the profession before en tering it. Before we can expect to produce a Washington, Ver non, Lynch.

Be not afraid to show to those who visit our schoolrooms and institutes that we have had some training, and. to a great extent, are pre pared to do the work. Ijet the visitors be white or black. If they are inclined to test vour ability to know and to do. there is no impropriety about it, so ac cept the challenge with alacrity. I have been in Arkansas going on eight years, and have taught every year in Nevada county since I came to the state. Why is this? Well you may answer that. Let us come together and im prove our qualifications. I saw in one of the leading papers of the State a few days ago, that there were at least 6,000 teachers that attended the institutes in the sev eral counties of the State, and more interest was manifested to foster the educational work in Arkansas than ever before. Some of the institutes lasted a week, some a little more, and some vot ed to extend the time next year, at the expense of the teachers, to two or three weeks, as the in stitutes are such an insight to the June examination. The teachers of Nev ada county make the force, but each mil takes his or her opportune few of us are numbered wi 6,000 mentioned above, i goodly number didn’t knot was any such thing as u tute. I find that the educated people are ever ready to gj vice and impart instruct* the live negro teacher. Because they know that th ter the negro is educate better citizen he makes, i less obnoxious to his conn an'13 state. Take such a J. C. Corbin, ex-supemt of public instruction, H. C ger, I. H. Blount, S. T. grand master of Masons in a ns as, Joseph A. Booker i H. Jackson, of Little Rock Knox and others too nun to mention, and you can from a standpoint of ind reasoning, that the above o sion concerning the negro’i cation, intellectually, moral! industrially, is logically tn Now, fellow teachers in elusion let me remind you« of President Roosevelt's grams, viz: If we fall down are those who will help a but if we lie down they hi time to help us up, Do you < J.
