Deborah rose timidly to her feet, her heart beginning to beat once more, but not with fear. Forth from the darkness came the low whinney of a horse in sudden recognition, while as instantly that horrid shadow took both shape and form. It was a horse, saddled, bridled, the rein trailing along the sand, one of the two animals , stampeded by the shot which had killed Kelleen. He had sensed her coming In the desert night, and was even then dumbly welcoming her. The girl went forward slowly, doubtfully, fearful of again startling the animal Into flight, but he remained quiet, sniffing at her as she drew near, and she finally put hand on the dangling rein. It was the horse Kelleen had ridden, and Deborah hid her face in his mane and cried softly, while he turned and rubbed his muzzle against her shoulder in silent greeting. It seemed too good to be true; as though God had led her every step of the way. The sudden reaction left her weak as a child. Yet she must go on; there was more cause now than ever before to go on— more hope of success. She made the effort twice before she succeeded In dragging herself up Into the saddle, but the horse stood patiently, making no attempt to break away. Once there the girl’s strength came back, and j with It her determination. All was j still, deathly still; not a breath of air touched her cheek; the dense night shut them In. Carefully she located the only star she knew; to her mind It seemed utterly wrong In its posi tion. yet she was faithful to It. Half afraid, yet not daring to venture other - i wise, she drew the horse about and | rode south. The night seemed endless, the black j desert eternal. There were times j when the girl lost consciousness of ev erything, except that shining North Star ever at her back. It was her one guide and hope; through it she re tained sanity and faith. In that way lay Box canyon and those waiting troopers She dare not ride fast, knowing not what pitfalls were ahead, the course irregular, up and down. The horse picked his way intelligently, the reins lying loose, except as she occasionally held him inexorably to the southward. She swayed wearily in the saddle, clinging to the high pommel for support, unable to see, yet aware that they crossed shallow ravines, and found passage occasion ally along ridges of outcropping rock, and then advanced more easily for long spaces over wide expanses of sand, noiselessly as a specter. It was hard to keep awake, to concentrate, to remember—she had to struggle to realize this was not all a dream. Then, after seemingly endless hours, the dawn came. Would she ever again forget it? She hardly knew at first what It was. Riding drearily with lowered head, she be came dimly aware of a change, a lightening of the gloom about, a dull grayness tingeing faintly the black wall of the surrounding night. Almost as she wondered the daylight came, wan and spectral at first, widening her vista on a gray circle as the stars slowly faded from out a multicolored sky. To the left a brightening white light shot up In long streamers, touch ing with more gaudy tinges the edges of fleecy clouds, while in the other di rection a purple haze blended with the deeper shadows along the horizon. It was the coming of the sun, rising ma jestically above the far-off rim of the desert, and she was still moving southward; through the long night hours she had kept the faith. Yet there was little of hope, of en couragement, In the picture unrolled before her. Her \iew gradually spread out In wider and wider circle, but with no relief to its drear sameness or monotony. Sand, leagues upon leagues of sand, stretched wherever her wearied eyes turned, leveled by the wind, or cast upward in rounded hillocks, but ever gray, depressing, a seu of desolation, dead, unmovable, ex tending to the far circle of the over shadowing arch of sky. It was all lifeless, not even a sagebrush or Span ish bayonet visible. Doubts assailed tier. Had she taken the right course? Did Kelleen imply that Box canyon lay directly south and had she been led astray, and thus wandered blindly out into the very heart of the desert? Could she, could the horse live through such a day of torture as that rising sun promised? Helpless, hope less, the girl drooped down wearily In the saddle, closing her eyes to the desolation. They plodded on drearily, j her mind a chaos, haunted by every ' memory of horror arising from those swift-occurring events which had led to this tragedy. Her forcible mar riage to Bob Meager, the bitter hatred | bis touch had aroused, bis drunken, lustful eyes, the blow she struck him, with murder la her heart, the fleeing like a hunted criminal, desperately seeking escape. Then the coming of Kelleen Into her life, strangely, mys- j terlously weaving about her a web J of fascination, even as they rode to- | gether through the darkness. She j had neter entirely thrown that off, the j odd spell of his presence, his cool, con- j fident words—she felt she never | would. Even when she questioned him j the most, she still secretly believed; i and now that he was actually dead, not so much as the flicker of a doubt remained.

SELF HELP IN RACE EDUCATION ONLY SALVATION OF BLACKS, SAYS A NOTED JOURNALIST By R. R. WRIGHT, Jr., Ph. D. Booker T. Washington laid great stress upon self help in his educa tional propaganda. No race can raise another. To reach the goal of excel lence every one must help itself up ward. As with an idividual, so with ; a race. The Negro race is no ex ception. Its biggest strides have been ! those made by its own help. Philan thropy has done much; our white friends have stood by loyally. But they would be disappointed if after all their help the Negro was not i learning to carry his own load. When we look into the subject of how the Negro has helped and is help ing himself in education, in business, in church, in industry, etc., we find a great deal of ground for optimism as to the future. Indeed we find much surprise. As far back as 1798 a school was opened in Philadelphia in Bethel A. M. E. church to help improve the intellectual status of the few colored people then inhabiting the .city. As far back as 1841 a group |of Negro ministers of the African ; Methodist church of Ohio, laid plans to start “a mutual labor school” fer poor colored boys. In most of the large centers of the north long be fore the Civil War private schools were held by colored people for their own. Sarah Douglass taught for many years in Philadelphia and had a famous private school. In fact in places where prejudice kept colored children out of the public schools, the colored teacher took much of the bur den of education of their race in their own private schools. Even in the south this was done in spots. One of the most famous of the Negro private schools teachers was Daniel A. Payne, afterward bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal church. He op | erated a school in Charleston for i many years, and is said to have had j some white pupils. He was expelled from the state because of the law passed in the early thirties prohibit ing Negroes from teaching school. This same Daniel A. Payne, however, was one of the founders of Wilber- J force University in 1856, and when | the white people had abandoned the I work, he, as he said, without a dollar ! but only on faith, contracted to pur j chase the Wilberforce property “in [ the name of the Negro race and the j A. M. E. church.” This today is the [ oldest institution of the New World j owned and operated by Negroes. It has a plant worth more thap a mil lion dollars; has about a thousand students, and stands second among all the colleges of the country in number of students and the value of J its equipment. i The Negro church took the lead in i ■ educational self help as in religious j improvement. All over the country, ■ I Baptists, Methodists, and others have j vied with their white brethren in do ing something for the education of i THE PHOENIX TRIBUNE—ALWAYS IMPROVING their race. The first in the field was the African Methodist church. In 1863 it took over Wilberforce Uni versity in Ohio. This was before the Civil War was over, and before Ne groes were really liberated. That same year it started church organiz ations in Georgia and South Carolina, and private schools soon sprang up. Wherever a church was started, soon after a school was opened. Hun dreds of these schools were scattered over the south and many bright young men and women who had been edu cated in the north were imported to schools. In 1880 as at tempt was made to establish the first college in Columbia, S. C. It was named Allen University in honor of Richard Allen, the first Bishop of the African Methodist church. It came as a protest of the colored peo ple of South Carolina to the closing of South Carolina University against colored people. In 1884 Morris Brown University was started in At lanta, Ga., named also for one of the bishops of the African Methodist church. In 1883 Edward Waters Col lege was started in Jacksonville, Fla. In 1886 Kittrell College started in North Carolina. In 1877 Western University at Quindaro, Kans., was started first as Presbyterian school, and later purchased and taken over by the African Methodist church. In 1886 Shorter College at Little Rock, Ark., was started. In 1889 Payne University in Selma, Ala., was start ed. In 1881 Paul Quinn College was organized at Waco, Texas. In 1887 Campbell College at Jackson, Miss., was started. In 1890 Lampton Col lege was organized at Delhi, La., un der the name of Delhi School, and later moved to Alexandria, La., and the name changed to Lampton Col lege. In 1885 Turner College was organized at Shelbyville, Tenn., and in 1917 Filpper Key Davis Col lege was started at Tullahassee, Okla. These are the leading schools oper ated by the African Methodist de nomination in the United States, though besides these are several smaller institutions, such as Payne Institute, Central Park Industrial School, Flagler High School, etc. This j denomination also maintains foreign j mission schools in Haiti, Barbadoes, ' British Guiana, Dutch Guiana, Sierra Leone, Liberia and South Africa. In fact the largest school on the west coast of Africa is operated by the African Methodist church. The latest statistics show that these schools have been feeders to J some of the largest universities in the north, from which they have drawn many of the members of their faculties. Allen University for a number of years, has had some of its best students in Boston University, Harvard, Columbia and other insti , tutions. During three consecutive I years someone from this school has taken a degree from one of the above J named institutions. It is sometimes said that the schools run by colored people would be left to deterioate. As an indication of the quality of the faculties of these schools, it might be stated that Wil berforce University has the only Ne- I gro Doctor of Philosophy from a Ger man university as its president, Dr. Gilbert H. Jones, while on its faculty are graduates from Brown, Harvard, Columbia, Oberlin, Chicago, Ohio State Universities and other universi ties, and persons who have studied in Europe. Allen University has for its president, Dr. D. H. Sims, a gradu ate from Yale, Oberlin Divinity School, University of Chicago and also from the Georgia State College; and other members of the faculty from other corresponding schools. Morris Brown University has for its president Dr. John H. Lewis, a graduate of Yale and Chicago Uni versity. To support these schools takes an enormous budget. The bishops are now planning for a million dollar campaign for education, a large part of which will ge to endowment. The raising of this endowment will be one of the great tests of how the Ne groes invest in education. Up to the present no Negro institution support ed by Negroes has gotten any large endowment. If the bishops of the church succeed in arousing Negroes of the country, It will be a great ex ample and inspiration for the race everywhere. In my next article I will tell some thing of self help in education as il lustrated by the Baptists and other Methodist institutions.
