The Negro who thinks he is "actin' like de white f o'ks" and who refuses to patronize Negro establishments, is a fool. A white man patronizes his own race first. Who uver. heard of a. white woman talking about not allowing a white dressmaker to sew for her, or a white shopper refusing to buy at a white store, or a white teacher refusing to read a white newspaper P Nobody, and nobody ever will. White people have sense. They know blood is thicker than water, and so knowing, they act along this line. The Negro does not need to talk so much of race love; he needs to shut up and work, and subscribe for his race paper. The American Guide, R. H.

At the Main Street Colored Baptist Church, Covington, Tuesday night, when Rev. Peter Vinegar, of Lexington, who had been invited to preach a special sermon, staggered to the pulpit, a stout "mammy" in a front seat exclaimed: "Sit down, you ole fool. You's drunk." Pastor Vinegar paused, clenched his fists and roared: If I am drunk I'm not" and he used a vile epithet. "How dare yo make such insinuations? Yo' ain't got the sense of a rabbit, 'deed yo' ain't.

As an agriculturist or skilled machanic" he says, "he has not only an open, unobstructed field, but his services are in such unavoidable demand that, to a very great extent he controls the scale of wages under which he is employed." He also argues that "it is only the vicious and idle of the race who get into trouble." It must be admitted that the South is the natural home of the Those who urge him to scat-tover the various States of the North and South overlook the fact that his industrial opportunities are almost entirely eliminated in these sections, exeept in a few isoWith the superior lated instances opportunities portrayed by Captain Fitzhugh, there should be a bright future for the Negro in the South.

We have in the Standard office a boy of 15 who goes to school in the forenoon and works in the afternoon. He is well up in the common school branches and understands the rudiments of Latin, rhetoric, and algebra, but the Knowledge he gains as a typesetter, deciphering, punctuating and correcting the spelling of scores of different kinds of manuscripts, the privilege of reading over two hundred newpapers from theleading cities of the land, the instructions given him in both the press and composing rooms, correcting proof, and coming in contact with prominent men from all over the country, is worth more to the boy in six weeks than the Latin he learns in the schools in six years. In fact, this young printer is better posted in general affairs than are some teachers, for they read nothing but the k ordinary and rarely come in contact with anyone except their pupils. There is absolutely nothing in the Latin business in the common schools but a waste of public money and stunting the growth of the child. Latin is a dead language. .Let it sleep. No nation speaks it now. The mental discipline it affords can be obtained in the great scramble for daily bread. As a foundation for English, if a boy enters a trade or profession requiring it, he can study Latin privately after leaving the publicschool, or in some higher institution of learning, but do not force it on him otherwise. book-teachiD- g Among the male visitors were Brothers Thompson, Nelson, Hueston and several others.

It is impossible for the editor, with a large and growing law practice, and other multitudinous duties, which often take him away from Lexington, to cover a city of 35,000 people, nearly half of whom belong to the race represented by this journal. Saturday, January 27, 1900 .NO ENLARGEMENT NOW. At the close of the past year we .promised to enlarge the Standard to twice its present size at the beginning of this year. Negotiations to this end were then in progress with a Pittsburg ;firm to supply one side already printed with the news of the world, but the price of white paper has gone up from 40 to 60 per cent, owing to a trust having cornered the wood pulp from which It is made, and it will be impossible to increase the size of the Standard without increasing the price, and impecunious subscribers would never stand that. We must now give a collector 83 per cent, and let him nearly run his legs off to collect each pittance from city subscribers, but when a hundred tell him to wait until next month the money to pay for white paper, and the many other expenses that go to make a newpapert must come from other sources. The Standard jJould not live on the patronage it gets from the race it represents. 'This is remarkable in a city of 16,000 Negroes, surrounded by densely populated towns, but it is true. Were it not for the liberal patronage of white advertisers, and the job printing from Negro customers who give preference to a race office, the paper would soon be compelled to cease publication. If you are not ashamed of being born black, patronize the white merchants who advertise in your race paper. They are your friends; they want your trade. Do not, however, neglect your own tradesmen who advertise, if they are in the same line. -- -- . JuATIN LEARNING LOST.
