III!, 1 *$\ .. I la It not time Btujr ask, that the ftegro care for himaelf, provide for his own Intellectual and religious needs? For 50 year*, now, he has been the re cipient of aid from the philanthropic people of the white race. He has made marvelous progress toward self-sup port, baa acquired large properties and self-direction, why Should he not now become independent? Why should oth ers continue to assist him? Why should money and men from the North be de moted to his upbuilding? This Is a fair question and should be answered honestly. Let it be said then,' first, that a half century is a very short time In the evo lution of a race. To educate an Indi vidual Is a matter of a generation, to lift a race from barbarism is a matter of many generations. The tremendous Influences of heredity and environment must be overcome and changed from degrading Into elevating factors In Its development.

When Charles Dawson left home with his father's fervent wish that he might never return few had expected to see him again. So when Tom Duw bou died and left him his entire prop erty, the flourishing farm and* dairy, and the lots on Mldvule avenue, ag gregating a sum of $40,000, everybody knew that the ne'er-do-well would turn up'again soon. He did. Very few people remem bered that Esther Rogers and Charles had been engaged, but the few who remembered speculated. Esther was now a middlish-aged woman, which is not the same as middle-aged. She was perhaps thirty-seven. Charles must be forty-three if he was a day. Would the engagement be renewed—that en gagement that Esther had broken at her mother's insistence? They met and resumed their friend ship. People wondered, but little was to be learned. They seemed Just good friends. Meanwhile Charles proved that his Journey West had sobered...
