Die . M. L. Clkrv, trustee
of the Peabody and Slater
funds, in a lecture delivered
before! the colored University
at Ivaleih, made this state
ment a b o u t s u ft ra o;e : " I d o n ' t
believe a man who cannot read
his ballot ouht to be allowed
to put it into the box." No
one realizes better than those
living in the black districts of
our country the good that
would arise from such a law.
It is this class of our popula
tion who are thrown in con
tact more than any others with
those who would be effected
by the enactment of such a
law. The trouble in these dis
tricts do not come from the
educated portion of the negro
population. Why ? Because
they by their contact with the
world have had their many
prejudices uprooted. They
have become convinced that
their interests are similar with
those of the whiteman and so
they are not found among
those who antagonize schemes
lor the advancement of the
community. Among the ne
trro criminals is found nothing
but ignorance. A negro who
has gained any kind of an edu
cation is seldom found in law
breaking practices. It is
among those whose ideals are
debased that we find the great
est amount of law breaking.
This is also true to the white
man. This is also true with
the white man. It is not the
high born, the highly cultured
that is always causing trouble.
But it is the uneducated, the
uncultured. True there has
been many instances of high
born crime, but such is in the
The ignorance of the negro

to-day. It is by preying on
this ignorance that the close 1
elections are always decided.
As the financial condition of

They can enact a law, making

The development of educa
tion in the last few years is
marvelous. Never have the
people at large had more
sound educational ideas, un
derstanding its purpose, the
needs for it, as at the present
time. We canscarcely realize
it is hardlv more than 100
years since the education for
the masses has been seriously
considered. The old Platonic

This class of our population
frames the backbone of our
legislation. History since its

farmer was the most impor

duration. Without the intu -
wave of city prosperity is soon
on the wane. '
This bJng the case a spe-
cial attention should be given
to this class of our population.
The effort of legislations should
not be so much to benefit the
city population as to provide a
good mode of prosperity for
j the farmers, as this class has
already recognized education
as the surest road to success
along this line. When a far
mer is able not only to use ex
perience gained by practical
farming, but a store of theo
retical methods as well his re-
suits are much more gratifying.
In this wav he avoids the oreat
amount of drudgery which is

Ifwas not until about forty years
after the settlement at Plymouth that
the English colonists in Ainarica felt
the need of a coined metallic currency
Few of them bought much, and what
llycv had was not in demand. For
the first ten years exchange oi bread

active, and ahmt, as it were, from
hands to mouths, while silver was an
intrusion and almost useless cecum
brance. Darter was universal in ev-ry

Even people of mature years

was unusually dramatic : he put a
fire into his words, as he stood the
slave jirl on the platform beside him
which fairly burned into the hearts of
his auditors. It was not lon before
the people became almost hysterical
with evcitement. But Beecher kept
on until he was ready to pass the col
lection baskets. Then the auditors
gave vent to their feelings, and not
ouly heaps of money was put into the
baskets, but men and women took
off tneir rings, unfastened their
watches and threw them into the bas-
kets and on the platlorm. It was a
remarkable scene and such ! a one as
probably will never be equalled in
this country. Mrs. Beecher r:calls
the event with wonderful vividness in
her article in the Christmas Ladies'
Home Journal, when she tells the
whele story of ''When Mr. Beecher
Sold Slaves in Plymouth Pulpit."
The scene itself is remarkably well
