eyes open to the fact that the negro
crcnigration scheme on foot threatens
serious injury to their section, but do
not know how to work to prevent the
negroes from moving west and north.
There is plenty of evidence here that
t'he movement is fostered by republi
can politicians, and that by inducing
a large number of nesrroes to leave
the southern states before the next
census the republican managers hope
to affect the representation of the
tates in the house of representatives
in such a way as to overthrow the
democratic majority in the house. All
leading republican managers are inter
esting themselves in this business.

The best of all rules for successful
housekeeping and making both ends
f the year meet is, " Pay aeum go."
Beyond all countries in the world,
ours is the one in which the credit
system is most used and abused.
Pass-books are the bane and pest of
domestic economy, a perpetual plague,
vexation and swindle. Abused by
servants at the store and the house,
disputed constantly by housekeepers
and dealers, they re temptations to
both narties to do wrong. "1 never
had that;" " Wwe neglected to enter
this;" ' 1 forgot to 'bring the book;"
"Never mind, we'll make a note of
it," and so it goes. But the worst of
it is that housekeepers are tempted to
order what they have not the means
tt pay for, and when the month or
quarter cemes for settlement they are
stniiteiiud. A family can live respect
ably on a very moderate income, if
.they always take the eash in hand and
buy where they can "buy to the best
advantage. Then they will be careful
first to get what is necessary. Extra
comforts will be had as they can afford
them. But it is bad .policy to buy on
reffit. No wise dealer -sails .so jcheap.

One must have a home, and in every
place there are dwellings suited to the
ability of the tenant or purchaser.
When the rent, the food and the cloth

margin for benevolence, for luxury and
pleasure may be measured and used.
In these as in other matters, "pay as
Having made no debts to shops or
stores, and especially having paid
servants, workmen anl workwomen
promptly their dues, it is v.ell also to
carry out the same punctuality and
caution in donations. If you would
endow .a professorship, an3 have the
means, do so; but do not give your
note fn it, promising to pay interest.
That is not an endowment; it is your
promise to make it such. If your
circumstances are changed by the
force of events beyond your control,
you cannot redeem your promise. We
can point fco many colleges, semin,
aries and other institutions falsely sup
posed to be endowed, and ithe basis
proved to be promises worth no more
than the scrap of paper on which they
Jn all things, "pay as you go."
Keep out of debt as you would out of
prison. Try this plan through the
year, and see Glow well it has worked
when you review the subject in the
beginning of another year.
