THE SEIKO'S BEST PLACE.
Race friction is. to be deplored
and it may grow worse, wo hope
it will not, but will soften as po
litical irritations become less
marked. Separation and isola
t'on hardly promises much for
the negro and we do not think
the world can complacently look
on the retrograde of any people.

history of James City, a negro

LAMENT OF A LITTLE GIRL.
My brother Will, ho use to be
The nicest kind of girl,'
Ho wore a little dress like me
And had his hair in curl.
We played with dolls and tea
And every kind of toy;
But all these good old times are
W.U1 turned into a boy.
Mamma has made lvm liUle suits,
Wiih pockets in the pants,
And cut off his yellow curls
And sent them to my aunts,
And Will ho was so pleased, I
Ho almost jumped w.'th joy,
But I must own I didn't like
Will turned into a boy!
And now he plays with horrid
I don't kuow how to spin,
And marbles that I try to shoot,
But never hit nor win,
And leap-frog I can't give
Liko Charlie, Frank or Roy.
Oh, no one knows how bad
Smce w 1 has turned a boy!
I havo to wear frocks just tho
And now they're mostly white.
I have io sit and just be good
Wh' 'e W'U can climb and fight,
But I must keep my dresses nice
And wear my hair in curls;
And. woi'se oil, worstest thing
I have to sdiy a girl!
We can't understand it, that
all of a sudden, dispatches say
that Dreyfus is hopelessly ill and
are measuring the limit of his
life to a few months. It comes
with such suddenness that unless
the great strain upon him has
produced a fearful collapse, we
feel hope oil that tho dispatches
are in error. We wan I him to
live to see himself completely ex
onerated from the treacherous
charges made by bad men.
