Washington contributed to the Church Union for August, a candid and discrim inating study of "The Meakness and Strength of the Negro Race. As Mr. Washington says at the outset it is a good thing for a race, as well as for an individual to be able to study itself. Faults should neither be overlooked nor exclu sively dwelt upon. Virtues should not be magnified. "What is need ed is downright, straightforward honesty in both directions." Mr. Washington admits that the Negro has suffered physical deteriration, especially in the large cities north and south. This is due partly to ignorant violation of the laws of health, and partly to visious habits. •'The Negro who, during sla very, lived on large plantations in the south, surrounded by re straints.
