Of his dear feet. Where was the art

It is not too much to say that the

no means more effectual than news

brings together the seller and the
buyer, the supply and the demand as
in former times and to a comparatively
limited extent they were brought by
the fairs and market day. By thus
facilitating and vastly increasing their
means of communication, it has helped
to reduce prices, to stimulate the
competition and emulation from which
comes improvement in production and
to multiply the demand for the

The true home is the happiest place
on earth. Around it cluster the
sweetest memories of life. As far as
this life goes it can reach no further
than the ideal home. It is the inspi
ration of patriotism and has prompted
men to deeds of daring that read like
romance. It is related by a Southern
writer that in some of the battles in
the rich Shenandoah valley the young
Virginians "fought like mad men"
against fearful odds. They were in
sight of their lovely homes and faced
fire and ball and shell to protect them
from the invader. That was patriotism
that commanded the admiration of
the world, but the thought of home
was at the bottom of it.
In these rapid days is not the home
idea too often lost sight of ? Is this
not especially the case in the great
cities of this country? New York has
its gilded and gorgeous palaces and it
has its myraids of tenement houses,
but neither are paradises in which
angels might dwell. There is less real
home life to the square inch on that
island than any other city in America.
In summer many of its abodes are
veritable hells and at night the poorer
inhabitants have to flee to the parks in
search of comfort and health. They
spend their days trying to keep soul
and body together. "The rich are
busily engaged trying to accumulate
more wealth. There is probably no
more real happiness within the palace
gate than in the tenement.
In the pursuit of ambition's dream,
which, with the average American, is
to make money, too many forget the
ties of home. It was not always thus
and will not be so always. We will
get over it after awhile under better
laws. Then the wealth of the country
will be more evenly distributed and
the great middle class will be built up.
There will be fewer millionaires and
paupers; less grasping, less greed, more
contentment, more of the spirit of
home life and more real homes.

Oration of Hon. Francis O. Winston,
Delivered June 25th, on the Occasion
of the Annual Celebration of St.
John's Day.
From the Orphans' Friend we take
the following portion of Hon. Francis
I). Winston's admirable oration at
the Oxford Orphanage on St. John's
Day. We regret that the address was
not published entire. The most elo
quent and pleasing part, and which
perhaps would prove most interesting
to the general reader, is omitted and
only that portion which deals more
directly with the Orphanage and its
work and future is published. Mr.
Winston said :
There is no clear idea among our
j people of the purposes and objects for
which this institution was established.
There is a general sentimental idea
abroad that the Orphan Asylum is a
good thing just the place to send
boys and girls to get them ont of the
community and to keep them from
becoming county charges, i Another
class of our citizens believe it the
main business of this institution to
educate boys and girls for the menial
positions in life for the cook room
and horse lot. j
This is no intelligence office to
supply the poor with a hostleir or the
rich with a footman ; the quai ter with
a milk maid or the great house with a
chamber maid. The thousands annually
expended here are distributed on no
such low plane. The first idea here
is the protection of the we.alc. the
j furnishing of shelter to the homeless
and food and clothing to the d estitute
and hungry. This is no reformatory
to correct the criminal bent and evil
habit. Such an institution is needed
in North Carolina.
The idea here is to rear citizens
men and women for the State. It is
as imperative to equip these boys and
girls for every duty of life as it is to
feed, house and clothe them. The
development here is physical, moral,
ntellectual. It is upon these lines the
work is carried on. And it is the
duty of those having the institution in
charge to furnish the fullest and fairest
opportunity for development of man
hood and womanhood.
In the absence of better equipment
the physical training here is confined
to light calisthenics, out-door games
without danger to life and limb, and
work upon the farm and in the shops.
The farm and workshops have other
uses than mere physical training.
Primarily both add to the support of
those here enrolled. The work is an
intellectual stimulus, by arousing and
fixing the attention, and by occupying
the mind with other thoughts than its
own vicious circle of reflection. It has
the moral virtue of teaching application
and patience. Incidentally, also, the
manual labor teaches a trade or pro
fession by which an honest living may
be gained. Here should be the primary
training school for an industrial educa
tion to be completed in our Agricul
tural and Mechanical College at
Raleigh. I would make this institution
preparatory to that. I would make it
a part of that system of industrial
education now taking such a deep hold
on our public mind. In order that
there may be laid the foundation for a
career in our Mechanical College,
there should be placed here such
complete outfits of shops as will foster
and promote that end.
The industrial development upon
which we of the South are entering,
most strongly appeals to North Carolina
to give every opportunity for industrial
The manufacture of our home
products will demand an almost
inexhaustible supply of mill superin
tendents. The resources ol our
mountains in minerals and metals and
ores will call for hundreds of mine
workers. The diversification of our
agriculture, the establishment of stock
farms, and the innumerable other
enterprises incident to our favored
situation will call tor men versed in
the practical labors and technical
training of the schools. I want this
institution to ue me nursery wnere
such men are reared.
And that there may be the healthy
body for the sound mind, the e should
be established here better sanitary
arrangements, a complete gymnastic
outfit, lavatories, and every opportunity
for regular and systematic labor. No
sane man for a moment questions their
importance as factors in educationa
As there are no private schools that
furnish this special elementary indus
trial education, I presume it will be
safe to say that an enlargement of the
work of the Asvlura along that line
will meet with very little opposition.
Such an equipment can be had at cost
The moral training here is entirely
without sectarian bias. Here are en
forced certain minute rules of con
duct and behavior, embracing neat
ness of dress or bearing. This discip
line has a distinct moral value. It
tends to create a standard of conduct
and a spirit of manliness. It is ol
course accomDanied bv a spirit of
guidance and helpfulness, by the in
sistence of a moral to an immoral life
by nursing the power of discrimina
ting between right and wrong and by
such religious helps as can be given
without sectarian bias.
This institution recognizes man as a
free agent. It pours out to the chil
dren here the great truths uuderlying
the Christian life. These are the same
in all creeds. Here the mind is left
free to choose itsown form of worship.
But it is trained to morality, reverence,
faith in God and belief in His revealed
Word as recorded in the Bible. Less
than this would not meet the demands
of the noble order having this Asylum
in charge, and beyond this it would
not for a moment permit its officers to

and true Christian and charitable
people from giving the cup of cold

The intellectual training here is
much the same as is obtained in our
best public schools. The branches
taught are those which experience
has demonstrated best serve the ordi
nary purposes of lite. Up to now the
history of education in North Caroli
na has taken no account of the life
here. The News and Observer, of
Raleigh, will soon publish a mam
mouth edition of that progressive
journal devoted to the educational in
stitutions of the State, commencing
with the common schools and ending
with the University. The name of
the Oxford Orphan Asylum does not
appear in the prospectus. This is no
accidental omission. As now consti
tuted, and upon the present intellec
tual plane it has no place in such an
enumeration of schools. Life here is
estimated in casting up the accounts
of the Stale as so much spent in caring
for the criminal and insane. The
work here is found tabulated with the
criminal statistics and inourpenalogy.
No list of schools in North Carolina
contains the name of this institution.
And while it is not classed with the
jails and prisons, it has stood aloof,
and educators have rather looked upon
the institution as a place of refuge and
safety. They have but followed the
general opinion. The future must tell
a different story. I ask in the name
of the fatherless a broader curriculum.
ask that the institution be enrolled
in the column of intellectual statistics.
I ask that the institution become
part and parcel of the intellectual
forces at work in North Carolina.
Among those forces it should occupy
a necessary as well as a prominent
place. It should be the stepping stone
from our public schools to our great
institutions of learning for men and
women. 1 nis snouia De tne state s

is concerned, has & missing link. The
meagre learning of the public school
does not equip him for the higher in
stitution. That link can be forged
here. And this, like the equipment
for physical'development, can be had
at cost price.
And where, do you ask, is the
money to come from? I reply, from
you and from me. First, in the shape
of voluntary donations. The needs of
the institution will always appeal to
the charitable and generous. It has
done so in the past, and we do honor
to-day to a distinguished philanthro
pist, born in North Carolina, who
disburses his charities upon business

of divine Writ, and who, ever ready to

others until we raise $10,000 in addi
tion to what we have raised.
Third, in donations from the State
And here, fellow citizens, comes the
rub. We are met with the cry that it
is beyond the power of the State to
engage in such work. I do not an
swer or attempt to answer, so much of
that cry as is prompted by interest,
whether temporal or spiritual. I
never argue with a man who under
takes simply to protect his own busi
ness. I do undertake to say that the
functions of government have broad
ened and are broadening, it is a
mistake to think of the State as an
ideal. I he btate is real. 1 he peo
ple are the State. Over no other
question is the struggle between the
old spirit and the new likely to be
more severe and prolonged than over
the question of State interference
The rivalry between the old spirit of
no State interference and the new
spirit of State guidance and aid, has
iu the past checked progress in every
form of development. It is now most
aggressive in the matter of education.
There is no more lasting and natu
ral distinction between the educated
and uneducated classes of which we
hear so much, than has been between
other classes in the past. The evolu
tion, of society tends to the. equality
of all men, and to the breaking down
of barriers between all classes; not to
pull down the high, but to elevate the
low; not to pauperize the rich, but to
make comfortable the poor.
Citizen and slave, patrician and pie-
bian, feudal lord and serf, privileged
classes and common people, leizured
classes and working masses. These
terms are no longer set in opposition
to one another. The citizen has not
become a slave, yet the slave has be
come free. The arulf between them
has been bridged. But two more bar
riers stand to divide society into
classes wealth and knowledge. We
have the wealthy few as distinguished
and set against the many toiling for
equality of opportunity. We have
also the educated set against the igno
rant and unlettered. Already these
two harriers are beginning to give
way under the continuous assaults
made upon them for the ' purpose of
hastening the true status of man as
proper function in our social life.
The characteristic feature of legis
lation is the increasing tendency to raise
the position of the lower classes at the
expense of the wealthier classes. This
is the real meaning of income taxes
and the establishment of fewer hours
for a day's labor. Shortening the
hours of labor is primarily and above
everything else to raise the condition
of the life of the workers at the ex
pense of wealth, and as a consequence
to place the workers more on a footing
of equality in the rival of life with
those above them. It is the princi
ple which is behind all measures which
aim at bettering, at the public expense
the condition of the lower classes of
workers. It underlies the cry for
graduated taxation, which cry we
may expect to grow louder and in-
crease in strengtn ana importunity.
It is the basis of those demands, now
all but nebulous and visionary, which
in the near future will take practical
shape for the revision of the hereditary
rights of wealth and the conditions
under which great fortunes are trans
mitted from generation to generation.
The demand for equality of oppor
tunity, voiced in this species of legis
lation is sure to result in the more
equal distribution of wealth and the
consequent elevation of the many.
There is but one other monopoly for
the few; and that is the monopoly of
education. The same principle that
underlies graduated taxation will sure
ly underlie our education legislature
for the future. The demand for a
considerable extension of the educa
tion founded by the State and for
State control in the interest of the peo
ple of high as well as of elementary 1
education, is the last cry for absolute
equality of opportunity. It is met in
the main by those engaged in denom
inational educational enterprises. The
politicians of the old laissez faire school
view the interference of State as revo
lutionary. They viewed the establish
ment of the common school with the
same degree of horror. The State is
usurping the individual function,"
was the cry when Calvin H. Wiley
dedicated the first public school to the
service of the ragged youth in North
Carolina. "The State is usurping the
individual function," is the cry to-day
when a generous State makes it possi
ble for a mountain boy to walk to the
University of North Carolina and re
ceive its highest honors, supporting
himself with menial employment and
with funds donated hy a generous pub
lic. My friends, the State is no longer a
big policeman whose sole function is
to preserve order. The cry that "all
men are created equal" is hollow
mockery to the man who has not the
opportunity to rise. The crushing of
barriers has written another maxim of
government "all men should have
equality of opportunity." In the era
upon which we are now entering there
will be no restriction of the interfer
ence of the State, but there will be a
progressive extension of the sphere of
action to every department of our so
cial life. I am no alarmist. I am
no socialist. I can only view as you
may do the gigantic problems which
loom across the threshold of our new
century. They surpass in magnitude
any that civilization has heretofore en
countered. The greatest of these are
State's control. The movement in
the direction of the State's regulation,
control and restriction of the right,
wealth and capital must be expected
to continue. The State will assume
these rights when it is clear that their
retention in private hands will inter
fere with the rights and opportunities
of the body of the people. It will do
so not for dts'.roying competition but
to prevent the destruction in private
hands and in order to preserve or se
cure free competition. With State
control there can be no trust and
monopoly of education. It is the pa
triotic duty to labor for broadening
the scope of the State's influence, su
pervision and control. From them
none but blessings can come. Denial
of all State interference will inevitably
tend to ownership. A greater evil
cannot be feared. Here is the field
for that conservatism which has ever
characterized North Carolinians.
Equality of opportunity is the cry of
the nineteenth century as it lays open
its heart for splendid achievement.
It is the burning faggot it hands to the
incoming cycle of years to light man
kind on to grander victories.
I read in the Bibical Recorder of a
month ago a statement that the boot
blacks in Washington City had better
opportunities of education than the
average boy in North Carolina. The
duty of the State is to give and make
opportunity for its poor sons and
In its comments upon the closing
exercises of the A. & M. College two
weeks ago the News and Observer
said: "One young man won a prize
at the A. & M. College who walked
from his mountain home to obtain an
education. He arrived in Raleigh
without money. He will be heard
from. It is such young men who be
come the State's greatest citizens."
This one announcement a thousand
fold repays me every dime I have con
tributed in taxes in the support of
that State institution tor the sons of
the farmer aud the mechanic. These
two comments, the one showing the
condition of our youth for want of op
portunity, and the other showing the
magnificent results flowing from small
opportunity tell the story of the State's
The principles of Masonry here
become the inheritance of society.
To help the helpless, to raise up the
fallen, to give to all human beings an
equal chance in life, to instruct the
ignorant, and especially to train up
children and to provide for widows
and orphans ; these cardinal principles
of our order, limited as they were at
first in their application, have, by their
excellence and ability, commended
themselves to the approbation and
acceptance of the civilized world. It
is now a well recognized function of
government to do these things ; and
States are deemed honorable and
powerful in proportion as they provide
for their citizens perfect systems of
public charities and public schools.
The deaf and dumb, the blind, the
weakminded, and even the insane, are
given opportunities to labor with their
bodies and to employ their minds in
honorable and improving thoughts.
The orphan child is placed upon the
level with the heir of thousands. This
is the teaching of Jesus. Masonry first
gave it practice and taught the world
its sublime beauty and estimable
utility. This noble structure, this
splendid Asylum, these hundreds of
happy children tell the sweet story of
Masonry unfolding to society the
truths of universal equality of oppor
tunity. North Carolina has learned
the lesson from Masonry, and now
hand to hand our noble order and
our strong and beneficent State uphold
and demonstrate those principles of
philanthropy, of equality, of Democ
racy and of justice. If there be any
who deny the right of the State to aid
this noble institution, they deny the
right of the State to act upon the
divine teaching of the Son of God.
They deny the State the right to
exercise itsown functions of sovereignty.
They deny it the right to feel, to
practice the noblest and strongest
principles of humanity, to pour out
the milk of human kindness. All hail
the State that cares for the poor, the
afflicted, the oppressed ! All hail the
Srate whose chiefest and largest
concern is the education of each
generation, leading them with tender
and loving care even from the hovel
and the brothel to the log schoolhouse,
the technical and normal schools, up
through the University into paths of
usefulness and honor, where they may
walk erect and strong, the equals of
millionaires and princes.
Much has been done for the Asylum,
but more remains. It must be equip
ped with teachers and apparatus until
the boys and girls who have received
its training may step from its doors
into the halls of the State Normal and
Industrial School for women, or the
University at Chapel Hill. These
orphan boys and girls must be fitted
here to go still further and higher.
Why kindle here the fire and chain it
to the rock f Why incite hopes and
aspirations by the furnishing of rudi
mentary education here and not give
those hopes full play ?
How cruel to cage the song bird,

the heart ot the old North State. It is
the sentiment of love, and she rears
that monumeut high, clear and
inspiring in its majestic proportions
when she donates to this cause. There
is duty here for the State. It is a duty
born of the evil time in which we live
the duty to give equality of oppor
tunity to the orphan sons and daugh
ters of the old North State.
Of the many inventions with which
the wizard of Menlo Park has as
tonished the world, the most wonder
ful is the kinetoscope. That is Edison's
masterpiece. His theories and inven
tions are almost beyond the grasp of
men. He has chained the lightning
which he garnered in summer clouds
and stored it for man's useful purposes.
His mechanical invention by means
of which the human voice may be
preserved and reproduced was indeed
a marvel. But the kinetoscope sur
passes that in wonder aud amazement
By it motion is photographed and
sound secured. The words and gestures,
the force and form of the orator can be
photographed, stored away, and ages
hence be reproduced. The fleet racer,
the swift moving train, the gentle
waving bough, the whisper of love and
the acclaim of joy each casts its shadow
on the lens. I wish for such an instru
ment here to-day in these buildings.
I would catch in it the happy voice of
grateful childhood grateful for food
and raiment, bed and shelter, grateful
for being lifted to a higher, better,
nobler plane of life. I would photo
graph the health and bloom upon the
cheeks of these 200 health and bloom
that often followed and supplanted
the paleness of want and sorrow. I
would picture these Grand Officers
and Masons, these officials and citizens
who have honored us with their pres
ence and who glory in individual as
well as in State support of this institu
tion. With my instrument charged
with the grand panorama of giant oak,
magnificent structure, spacious grove,
cooling shade, joyous children, gener
ous people, I would visit every ham
let in North Carolina and warm the
hearts ot the people by the reproduc
tion. But one result could follow such
an exhibition. The Oxford Orphan
Asylum would become the dearest
cause of all good North Carolinians.
God speed the day when this institu
tion will be above the petty flings of
the politician and above the selfish
opposition of the pretended philanthro
pist, and when all men of every creed
will admit that there is here a work
for the State to perform.

Keep Out of Debt.
Every man who would get on in
this world should avoid debt, as far
as possible. From the very outset of
his career he should resolve to live
within his income, however small it
may be. The art of living easily as
to money is very simple : pitch your
scale of living one degree below your
means. Many a man dates his down
fall from the day he began borrowing
money. Avoid the first obligation,
for that incurred, others follow, one
necessitating the other ; then follow
pretexts, excuses and lies, till all sense
of shame is lost, the whole life becomes
a failure, and the debtor in despair
finally resolves to live by indirect
robbery and falsehood. If you wish
to succeed in this world, and live a
happy life with a clear conscience,
avoid, debt.

A Word to Girls.
Girls, you must remember that to
j piant, draw, sing, play or dance are
all nice accomplishments, but you
must also recollect that in the course
j 0f human events you may be called
j upon to fill a sphere where you can
not paint eatable loafs of bread, allay
j thirst by a song, lull a hungry man to
sleep with a sonata, no matter how well
it is executed, or dance your partner
into good humor if his dessert was
pricinpally dough. All accomplish
ments are desirable, but none are more
essential than a practical knowledge
of household duties, this is one of the
essentials in your education that is of
primary, not secondary, importance,
and no young woman s education is
complete without a good training in
household duties.
