raco less fortunate than herself was so
strong that at tho age of 17 she left

their elevation. At Rochester, N. V.,
she met two of tho nation's leading
colored men, Frederick Douglass and

along tho lino of mothers' ' meetings,
kindergartens, rescue works, homes for
tho aged, homes- for motherless children
and all moral and religious training.
Tho immediate object is to elevate thu
women of the race and to change their
Ininu surroundings. It also seeks tho
establishment of public schools in tho
South for colored children, as they aro
not peiimtted to attend most of tho
ordinal y schools there.
Tho association has already founded
many sclnols, the largest of which is
tho Hooker Washington, whoo course
of studv includes
21 departments. Ho-
sides tho ordinary
branches of study,
it has great industrial departments,
where tho boys an taught tho trades

The most interesting and instructive
part of her lecture- wa her account of
tho great suhools that have been estab
lished for the education of the colored
youth of the Southland. It was no
doubt a revelation to many present.
She told of the great university at At
lanta, lia., with its hundreds of stu
dents, the gieat school at Savannah,
and at other cities of tho South, where
the colored youth receive higher edu
cation. Along these lines site consid
ered that the advance of her people
had been most wonderful, coining as
they did so recently from the kinds of
Tlte.se schools, sho said, are the result
the endeavors of the colored people
themselves. Sho visited one college,
near Savannah, which is on a planta
tion where there had been hundreds of
slaves, but where now there were !I00

cated. Still on this same plantation
are the old cabins tho samo as they
wero in tho days of slavery. She
spoke of the thrift of the colored pecplo
in many places, and of their place
among tlie industries of tho Southland,
talking with great force along this lino,
and demonstrating the capabilities of
tho colored raco for development and
progress. Tho speaker said that sho
hail entered tho work among her own
people about 1805. She spoke of her
visit to Loudon as the delegate in 1HUII
to the world's W. U. T. U. convention,
when she became the guest of Lady

An intended laugh is tho way the
management of "Ilrown's in Town"
describes tho newest farce which will
bo tho attraction at I'ordray's next
week. It is ruploto with hiiiiioious
complications, and is said to brim
over with witty thrusts and a choice
selection of catchy musical numbers.
Tho action of thu farce all takes place
during one summer's day in tho coun
try homo of a man supposed to bo Mr.

hero. The plot hinges on the desire
of a young man who marries at tho

father and takes his bride to the coun
try phn'o to concoct a schemo whereby
ho can break the news to his irate
parent. Ho wishes to bo alone, but
his friends and relatives happen in,
and to keep his marriage a secret,
causes quite a uumlicr of complications
to arise. Three acts are used ill which
to tell tho story, the llrst being morn
