The labor problem is not of local
importance but is nation-wide, so
much eo that the recent declarations
of principles of the Tuskegee Negro
Conference and the utterances of Dr.
Moton, principal of that institution,
have pointed out to both races, so far
as the masses of negroes in the South
are concerned, a commendable me
dium by which a better solution of
certain problems can be had. The
wisdom of the leaders of the recant
conference can be more appreciated 'f

A student of economics realizes that
tne natural resources of the South is
aooui oeyona the mental grasp of
man and are unexplored. The field
of agriculture especially reveals a
striking contrast between the progres
sive and honest negro farmer who
was not divorced from his native soil
and who reaped a healthy bank ac
count and storehouse full of good food
and the fellow who left similar oDnor-
tunities to work for wage in an indus
trial center like many sections of the
North and was caught unprepared for
the worst weather that has been, ex
perienced in the North for a number
The other day while taking in' the
situation, especially about Philadel
phia, one found that the exodus of
colored people to that section had
created a serious houisng problem
and Bishop L. J. Coppin and Dr. R, R.
Wright and other prominent colored
men of that section met with a num
ber of Philadelphians to discuss the
situation. Owing to poor housing
conditions and the severe weather the
death toll among negroes at times
were such that the colored undertak
ers were heavily taxed. These peo
ple could not live like the Huns,
Poles and that class of foreigners,
making their peculiar ghettoes in
Northern cities. One also found that

efficient service for the government
by helping to produce more foodstuff.
Conditions should not cause impnf
sive sympathy but mutual co-operation
on the part of both races to ad
just affairs for the -best interest of
humanity and the triumph of real
democracy and lastly the negro should
appreciate the wisdom of the late Dr.

NEW YORK LETTER.
(Special Correspondent of The
New York, Feb. 13. In one of Web
Of boyhood ambitions.
Is pictured Frank W. Frueauff.
The Denver gas magnate.
Wanting to be a playwirght.
When he was a boy.
And looking at the cartoon.
I began to wonder.
If these big men.
Who achieve big things.
And bear the brunt.
Of heavy responsibilities.
In the world of finance.
Would not like.
To change jobs for awhile.
And shed their masks of dignity.
And break down the barriers.
That their positions build up.
And swing a pick or" a shovel.
And wear red flannel shirts.
And eat out of a dinner pail.
And -smoke corn cob pipes.
And .go home fagged out.
To a dinner of cornbeef and cab
And Jack off their shoes.
And sit in front.
Of the kitchen stove.
In their stocking feet.
And then go to the movies..
And stop off at Jake's!
For raw meat and onions.
Sprinkled with garlic.
It would be quite a change'.
From pussj- fatted butlers.
And peeirng valets.
Dainty bits on golden plates.
But somehow I believe.
That most of them would like it.
For a time at least.
And somebody told me.
That -Rockefeller often reads.
Some things I write.
And so this is an invitation.
To him and Mr. Frueauff.
And Mr. Carnegie and Mr. Scwab.
And any of their friends.
To come around to my shack.
On February 18, my birthday
And veil put on the feedbags.
And eat baked beans.
And chill con carne.
And ait around in, our sock feet.
And I'll tell them.
Howl got my start in life.
And some more Bull'Sheviki.
Kings Mountain, Ky.r Mrs.
Jenkins, of this town, says:
about four years I suffered with
stomach trouble. . It seemed like a
lump formed in my stomach and Ii
could hardly get my breath for the
tight, smothering feeling. This luprp,
or whatever it was, ached constantly.
I couldn't sleep at night. I had no
appetite and I began falling off. I
am naturally a large woman but just
weighed 135 lbs. I got so nervous I
felt I could not stand it any longer.
I knew in my condition I could not
We had one doctor, he said "indi
gestion." I took medicine from him,
but it did not seem to help me any.
We had another doctor. 'He said it
was, 'neuralgia of . the stomach.' 1
took his medicine, still there wag that
aching lump. Finally the doctor de
cided it might be a decayed tooth,
and advised me to have my teeth
drawn, which I did. I didn't get any
One night my husband brought home
a sample of Black-Draught. I had
been' unusually restless. I told him
I believed I felt better. He brought
home a package, and two packages
cured me and I fully believe saved
my life. I weigh 183 lbs. and am the
picture of health."
