to the prudence, forethought and exe
cutive ability of Dr. Washington. Here
we have Negroes both lOen and women
trained for the \arious vocations of life,
trained to cook, to sew, keep house, fai’m
and different trades. Here they are
taught the cardinal princii)le that the
foundation of all true ha])))iness and
prosperity rests upon the conscientious
performance of whatever work they may
be called upon to do.
Mr. Washington’s ideas of the so-called
“Negro question” are intelligent,
reasonable and ])rogressive. He rises
above sectional jn-ejudices and petty
opinions and views the question in its
broadest and truest light. He believes
that there is enough of pjudence, wis
dom, brains and foresight among the in
telligent people of onr gi-and and glori
ous country to work out a plan by which
we can prove to the wi.rld that, tho it
be contrary to history it is possible for
two laces to live peaceably side by side in
the same country or territory, in a way
that (hey may he mutually beneficial.
He makes a plea for the Integrity of the
two peojdes and that the honor of each
he properly respected by the other.
Accoiding to Mr. Washington the only
way to treat an inferiga race is to educate
them up to our own standard of living,
morality and religious attainment . which
idea nnist evmtu.ill; prevr.il. Wl.n utr
Southern people caji awake to f-ee the
question in its true light and appreciate
the significance of the situation, when
they can forget their tendency to nairow-
mindedness and prejudice on the question,
when they come to see it as Dr. Washing
ton sees it and are willing to let his idea
of a solution be put into effect, then and
not until then will our “greatest of
national problems” he solved.
Mr. Washington is a man of which his
race and our nation can well be proud
and is a living, active example of the
possibilities of his race.

SOME IMPRESSIONS OF BOOKER T.
THE PHILOGIAN ENTERTAINMENT.
Thursday evening, November 24, begin
ning at eight o’clock the Philologian
literary Society gave its annual Thanks
giving entertainment. The programme con
sisted in orations, music, a humorous pa
per and a contest in debate. The execu
tion of each item in the progi-amrae was
well niah perfect.
The exercises began with a piano duet,
by Mr. Huff and Miss Wilson; following
this was an oration, delivered by Mr. R.
A. Truitt. The next in turn was a humor
ous paper, read by Mr. J. U. Newman, .Ir.
This was followed by a second oration,
delivered bv Mr. F. S. Drake. This ora-
Booker Washington is for many reasons
one of the most interesting of American
citizens. As teacher, preacher, lecturer,
philanthropist and leader of the Negro
race he is entitled to our notice and re
spect. As a man he is attractive in ap
pearance, sympathetic in nature, (which
fact has won and held for him a mul
titude of friends), clever in business and
devout in his purpose to lead his mal
treated race to higher and better things.
He stands head and shoulders above all
others of his kind and ranks with the
greatest men of today, neaardless of race.
Hirf institute in Macon County, Geor
gia. re the first of its kind to ever attain
to any degree of importance and even
what Fuskegee is at present is largely due
The leaves are crisped and reddish,
The tree is robbed of its crest
Bleak winds have attacked all its foliage,
And stripped it of all its best.
The pasture has now’ lost its verdure,
The creeks are running cold—
No maie does the lad tarry yonder
As in summer days of old.
The cattle turn lazily homeward.
And sheep, in their innocent play.
Com? pattering home from the pasture
At the close of this red-crowned day.
The birds have begun their migrations
To a warmer land than ours.
To a land of peipetual summer,
To a summer land of flowers.
So may we, ^*hen our bodies surrender
To the cruel attacks of time
Find rest for our wearied beings
In a brighter and better clime.
