It is reported that the Bone of the P-I is only a cigarette. Andrew R. Black thought of getting an automobile, but changed his mind and got a Ford.

SMILE WITH US It is said that a certain well-known por trait painter has almost as great a reputation for joking as for taking excellent likenesses. One evening he was speaking of a beautiful young girl whose portrait he had just fin ished. "Her faetures are exquisitely molded, I have heard," said a lady who had seen neith er the portrait nor its original. "Beautiful forehead and eyes," returned the artist, concisely, "handsome nose, fine chin, but mouth like an elephant's." "Mouth like an elephant's!" echoed the lady, in dismay. "What a terrible misfor tune. Do you mean that it is so enormous or what?" "Only that it is filled with superb ivory," returned the artist, with his usual gravity. A certain mayor once rose to make a speech. And after talking for three-quar ters of an hour began to wind up with the words: "And it is my greatest wish that the gov ernment shall all hang together." "Hear, hear!" cried a voice in the crowd. "I don't mean in the sense in which the idle scoffer i...

acy with white troops, but the rebels cap tured Ft. Sumpter, and the defeat of the Union armies at Bull Run placed a different aspect upon the glory of the government to ward the Negro as a soldier. It now became apparent that without his military services it was doubtful if the nation could live. The call for Negro volunteers was answered with nearly 200,000 strong. At Fort Pillow, Ft. Wagner, and Milligan's Bend his bravery and courage elecited the praise and plaudits of the world. In innumerable instances when the earth quaked, and sheet and fire flashed along the forts and the air was filled with demons of destruction and death, the enemy hissing, howling, screaming and leaping at their black victims—when the slaughter was dreadful, the shattered, quiverinng, bleeding columns only wheeled by companies to the rear, and formed and again gallantly dashed down thru the Valley of Death a ad'charged for the guns. Owing to their fateful posi tions in each of these battles it was of no ...

A LETTER FROM BRAZIL By Jose Clarana In acceding to your request that 1 send you "one or two letters about the color problems in Brazil," I keep within the limitations of my capacity and .comply with your admonition that "I make them as short as possible," by writing one letter with the simple statement that there is no color prob lem in Brazil. By way of explanation, however. I must add that this does not mean that a black skin is an open-sesame to any and every drawing-room and a shibboleth of easy ac cess to the heart of any maiden and the purse of her father. Tt means, for one thing that a man is not necessarily black because his skin is not so white as somebody's else skin. In the terms of the "social equality," which the telegrams say that German spies have been trying to obtain for the not-quite white-enough in Alabama, it means that the color of the pelts in a drawing-room is the exclusive business of the people who wear them, and that if the son of some gentle man violates ...

"NEGROES AND THE WAR" (By John D. Barry) Shortly after we entered the war Emmett J. Scott, secretary of Tuskegee, for many years closely associated with the late Book er T. Washington, wrote to Julius Rosen wald of Chicago, one of the Tuskegee trust ees, suji^estinji 1 that the Negro soldiers have a counselor in Washington, both to give them guidance and to look after their inter ests. Rosenwald at once approved and en tered into communication on the subject with Washington's successor at Tuskegee, Major Robert R. Moton, who wrote to both President Wilson and Secretary of War Baker. The result was that Scott was de tached from Tuskegee for a while and sent to Washington, where he now has an office in the War Department. He has made him self so useful that he will probably stay there till the war 's over. In the first draft, out of one hundred thousand men, eighty thousand were colored. Out of every hundred colored men certified for service thirty-six were accepted. Twenty five were ...
