Having tailed to husband their financial resources while they were in, they left Washington sadder but wiser men. They went South, cultivated more intimately the acquaintance of their own people; some taught school, some went to farming, others went into various business enterprises and the result of it all, their energies were drawn out, they made a little money and learnt how to save it—and by it the material and business phase of Afro-American life received a fresh and healthy stimulus. Otlieis already in the South, bright and brainy men, hereto "living off politics" as campaign speakers and ...
