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

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
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
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
In my next article I will tell some
thing of self help in education as il
lustrated by the Baptists and other
Methodist institutions.
