It must have been a part of the plan of the ages, that this treat test ival should come in spring time, when all the world is full of life. As nature, backed by the spirit of life, cannot remain dead after the blasts of wiuter have ceased to blow, so the human life after it has become partaker of the divine nature refuses to be subject to the lord of death. Such a char acter as Jesus Christ could go into the grave, but "ho could not be holdeu of it." Oentlemen Never Proclaim Them selves. ChrlitU'OIwnrr. There are professions and pro fessions, but gentility is hardly among theui. Being a gentleman is something that come, naturally to a mail or doesn't come at all. To a degree it is in the blood yes, but there are many gentlemen that were low born. And the best proof that a man is one is not always found iu his declaration. In this towu, not many mouths ago, a lewd fellow of the baser sort, a married man at that, being ordered by the head of the family out of a house which he had iuvadwl with an 11 licit purpose, was at pain, to as snrc. the landlord, just before shoot ins bim to death, that he, the mur derer, was a '-entleman."

They do not Itelieve iu the social eoiial negro school at Tuskcgee, Ala. Mr. nevciand said: "1 have come here tonight as a siencere friend of the negro; and 1 should tie very sorry to suppose that my good and regular standing in such company needed support at this late day either from certificate or confession of faith. Inasmuch, however, as there may le differ ence of thought and of scntiineut among those who profess to "tie friends of the negro, I desire to de clare myself as lielongiug to the I Looker Washington Tuskcgee sec tion of the organization. I believe that the days of I'ncle Tom's Cabin are past. I believe that neither the deem- that made the slaves free, nor the enactment that sud denly invested them w ith the right of citizenship any mine purged them of their racial tintl slavery bred impel feci ions anil deficiencies than it changed the color of their skin. I lielieve that among the nearly nine millions of negroes who have been intermixed with our citizenship, there is still a grievous timoniitof ignorance, a sad amount of viciousness and a trem endous amount of laziness and thrittlcssuess. I lielieve that tln -e conditions inexorable present to the white people of the I'liited States, to each iu his environment and under the mandate of good citizenship, a problem, which neither enlightened self interest nor Ihe higher motive of human sympathy will icrmit them lo put aside. I lielieve our lellow country men in the Southern and late slave, holding States, surrounded by about nine tenths, or nearly eight million of tliis entire negro popul ation, and w ho regard their milieu ial prosperity, their peace and even Ihe safety of their civilization, interwoven with the negro problem are entitled to the utmost con siderate n rim! sympathy ami fellowship. I am thoroughly con vinccd that the ctl'orts of Hooker Washington, and Ihe methods of Tuskcgee Institute point the way to a safe and hcncllcctit solution of the vexatious negro problem ut Ihe South; and I know that the good people ut the North, who have aided these cIToit and methods have illustrated the highest and hcsLcitijtcnship and the most Chris tian and enlightened philanthropy. I cannot, however, keep out of my mind tonight, the thought that with all we of the North may do, the realization of our hopes for the negro, must alter all, mainly de pend, except so far as it rests with the negroes themselves, upon the A Great Sensation. There was big sensation iu Ijffbvillc, lnd., when W. II. Brown of that place, who was expected lo die.had his life saved by Dr. King's New Discovery for onsu nipt ion. lie writes: "I endured insufferable agonies from Ashma.but your New Discovery gave me immediate re lief and soon thereafter affected a complete cure.''

It seems to me that there is abundant sentiment and abundant behavior among the Southern whites towards the negro, to make us doubt justice of charging this denial of social equality to prejudice, as we usually ll.ol.lMt-ltlil tliA tm-.i-l,l l't,l li!llut it is born out of somothiiig so nine h'the deeper and more imperious than prejudice as lo amount to n racial instinct. Whatever it is, let lis re member that it has condoned Ihe negro's share in the humiliations and sHiliation of the white men of the South during the saturnalia of reconstruction days, and has allowed a kindly feeling for the negro to survive the time wheu the South was deluded hv a perilous flood of indiscriminate, unintelli gent and blighting negro sull'rage. halever it is let ns try lo lie tolerant and considerate of the feelings and even prejudiced racial instinct of our white fellow country men of the South, who iu the solu tion of the negio problem, Is-arthe heat ol the dav and starrer under the weight of the white man's bur den. "There are, however, other con siderations relative to the features of ihe negro question, which may 1st regarded as more in keeping with the objects and purposes of this occasion. As friends of the negro, fully believing hi the pos sibility of his improvement and advancement and sincerely and eimliilently laboring lo that end, it is lolly for use to ignore the impor tance of the ungrudging co opera tion on the part of the white peo ple of Ihe South iu this work. LiUir as we w ill, those who do the lifting ol the weight must be those who Maud next to it. This co operation cannot lie forced, nor can it lie gained by running counter to Soul hern ideas. Before reaching the question of negroes' full enjoy incut of civic advantages or even of all his privileges there lire iin medialely liefore us and around us questions demanding immediate caif, and there in dealing clV'-ct-ively with those, wecau confidently rely upon the encouragement and assistance of every thoughtful and patriotic citizen of the laud, wher ever he may live ai:d whatever may be his ideas or predilections concerning the more remote phases of the uegro problem. Honker Wash ington in Kiciikiiig on the condi tions and needs of his race has wisely said: " 'It is at the bottom of life we must begin anil not at the top; nor should we permit our grievam-es to overshadow our opportunities.' " "In slimming up the whole mat ter, there is one thing of which we can lie absolully certain.
