TIIK NEGRO AT HOME.
Two great problems will occupy
the minds of this nation at no distant
day. The first will be ihetof Mur
znonim and how to get rid of it.
The second -will be termed: "The ne ne
geo: How shall we manage him?"
That the negro has got to be man
aged will surprise some people -that
ola3B in the north who have never
set foot south of the Ohio river, and
who fondly imagine that the colored
man of the north is a true sample of
the race in this country. There is a3
much difference between the blacks
north and south of the Ohio river as
there in between Chinamen and In
dians. A negro loafer is a rare case
-st the north, even in our citieg. He
feels that he must work or go ragged
and hungry. The negro loafer of
the south can be met with at every
corner. The only feeling he has is
' to escape work. ' Ho can probably
beg his old slothes and enough food
to keep him from starving. If he
can't, then look out for his thievish
fingers. A northern negro's state
ment is hardly ever questioned. A
southern negro will tell three lies to
one truth. "When we mako a verbal
bargain with a northern negro wo rely
upen him to carry out his part of the
contract. A southern planter may
take a negro 'before a justice of the
peace and swear him, and then oblige
him to make his mark to an agree
ment drawn up in legal form
. to labor for o long a time at so much
par month, and the negro will jump
rtiat contract whenev3r he pleases
without the slightest regard to hon
or. Nineteen out of twenty will lie
to and sieal from the very men to
whom they are the most indebted.
Freedom and the ballot, coming to
gether, upset the slae. As a slave
he worked and obeyed certnin rules
and regulations because ho feared the
penally. Left to do his own planning
he has no head. Left to cany out
his own ideas, he makes lying, de
ceiving and trickery take the plaeo
of work. As a larm laborer no one
can be sure- whether ho will stay a
day or a month. The very best of
them will quit work wkenevor the
whim sojzes. Saturday is a holiday
in which ho must go to town and
spend Ids last cent, no matter how
the crops are situated.
In the north the virtue of the av
erage colored woman is unquestion
ed. In tU south not one in a thou
sand is credited with it. As a race
they do not know ho meaning of the
term. A colored preacher at Augus
ta who was soliciting subscriptions
to build a country church swept away
by a cyclone, told me that almost ev
ery man in his congregation felt at
liberty to desert his, wife andchildreji
""Snd'maTry again whenever he so will
ad. He had churched dozens of
them for having two, throe and four
"Southern men have seen a change
in the negro year by year. He has
no ambition no industry, Year by
year it is becoming more difficult to
handle him as a laborer. He is de
serting the country for the towns. Ho
is ungrateful and trifling. For the
benefit of Northern philanthropists I
should like to say that the race has
improved. In one way it has. More
of them can read and write, but this
very impiovement has worked them
an injury. The colored man who can
read a .newspaper or write a letter
Will not do a stroke of work if he
starves as the penalty. He is above
it, and looking for an office. Ninety
eight out of 100 live like dogs and
worse. Bight on the plantation where
they work thev will steal the owner
As for schools, the money is equal
ly divided, and they are given every
chance, but the lather whose boy can
earn two bits a day will not send him
to school for an hour. Educate a
- colored girl and she puts on airs, re
fuses to do work, and runs off to some
city .to live a fast life. Replace the
negro labor of the south with white
men and her crops would double, but
the negro keeps the white labor away.
He won't work and he won't get out
- The people of the south have borne
from the blaok men what no other
people would endure. They pass over
his impudence, find excuses for his
laziness, and sympathize with him
when he comes before the law. They
pay all his taxes, burden themselves
with his schooling, stand for his doc
tor bills, and feel far more kindness
for him than any of us in the north.
And yet there must be a change. The
agriculture of the south must drift
backwards, the negro must get out,
or there must be some better way of
controlling him. Our northern f arm
- ersrout out their hired help at day-
break and push them for all they are
worth. The negro cannot be routed
out He cannot bo pushed, If 5000
worth of oats were in danger he would
not quicken his pace nor give up his
trip to town. Bind yourself to give
him $1000 per month and he will
jump tho contract the same as if the
flenres were $12. And he is not only
a natural tyrant, but naturally orueL
He 'will knock his mule down with a
club where a white mau would not
speak out Bharply. Ho will pound
hia wife as if she were a log, and I
have repeatedly seen white men in
terfere to prevent them frcm crippling
"fife all want the negro to improve.
He has become a part and portion of
the country, our politics and our bal
lads. But let us not deceive our
selves. He is a far worse problem
than the savage Indian of the plains.
3?he latter we can force with bullet
end bayonet The former can only
be punished as a law breaker, and he
laughs at the penalty.
The .reason a woman is naturally
" not a humorist is because of her sus
picions nature. She is always afraid
that you may be laughing at her in
stead of her wit Most men had just
as soon be laughed at as with. So
long as they raise a laugh that is all

The New Teacher.
We had about as ornery" and triflin
a crop of kids in Calaveras county
thirtv years ago as you could gather
in with a fine-tooth comb and a brass
band in fourteen states. For ways
that was kittensome they were moder
ated active and abnormally protu
berant That was the prevailing
shle of Calaveras kids, when Mr.
George W. Mulqueen came there and
wanted to engage the school at the
old camp, whore I hung up in the
days when the country was new and
the murmur of the six-shooter was
in the land.
'George W. Mulqueen was a slender
young party from the effete east, with
conscientious scruples and a heotic
flush. Both of these was agin him
for a promoter of school discipline
and square root. He had a heap of
information and sorrowful eyes.
l'So fur a" I was concerned, I didn't
feel like swearing around George or
using any language that would sound
irrevelant in a ladies boodore; but as
for the kids of the school, they didn't
care a blame oent They just hollered
and whooped like a passle of Sioux.
They didn't seem to respect literary
attainments or expensivo knowledge.
They just simply seemed to respect
the genius that come to that country
to win their young love with a long
handle shovel and a blood-shot tone
of voice. That's what seemed to
catch the Calaveras kids in the early
'George had weak lungs, and they
kept to work at him till they drove
him into a mountain fever, and finally
into a metallic sarcophagus.
'Along about tho holidays the sun
went down on George W. Mulqueen's
life jut as the eternal sunlight lit up
tho dewy eyes. You will pardon my
manner, Xyo, but it seemed to me
just as it George had climbed up to
the top of Mount Calvary, or wher
ever it was, with that whole school on
his back, and had to give up at last
"It seemed kind of lough to mo.
and 1 couldn't help blamin it onto
the bchool Home for there was ualt a
dozen big snoozers that diJn't go to
school to learn, but just to raiso 2fed
and turn up Jack.
"Well, thov lulled him anyhow, and
that settled it
"The school run kind of wild till

tenderfoot, with a fist like a mule's
foot iu full bloom, made an applica

if they'd give him a chance. Well,
they ask'd when he wanted to take

"Sunday-'-flejMiooa ho went up to
the schoolhouso to look over the
ground and to arrange a plan for an
active Injun campaign agin the hos
tile hoodlums of Calaveras.
"Monday he sailed in about 9 a. m.
with his gripsack and begun the dis
charge of his duties.
"Ho brought in a bunch of moun
tain willers, and after driving a big
railroad spike into tho door casing
over the latch, he said the senato and
house would sit with closed doors
during the morning session. Several
large,white-eyed holy terrors gazed at
him in akind of dumb, inquriug tone;
but ho didn't say much. He seemed
considerably reserved as to the plan
of the campaign. The new teacher
then unlocked his alligator skin grip
and took the Bible and now self
cocking weapon that had a automatic
dingus for throwing out the empty
shells. It was one of the bull-dog
varities and had tho laugh of a joy
"He read a short passage from the
scriptures, and then pulled off his
coat and hung it on a nail. Then he
made a few extemporaneous remarks,
after whioh he salivated the palm of
his right hand, took the self-cocking
youngster in his left, and proceeded
to wear out the gads over the various
proturbances of his pupils.
"People passing by thought they
must be beating carpets in the school
house. He pointed the gun at his
charge with his left and manipulated
the gad with his right duke. One
large, overgrown Missourian tried to
crawl out of the winder, but after he
had looked down the barrel of the
shooter a moment, ho changed his
mini He seemed to realize that it
would be a violation of the rules of
the school, so he came back and sat
"After he wore out tho foliage, Bill,
he pulled the spike out of the door,
put on his coat and went away. He
never was seen there again. He
didn't ask for any salary, but just
walked off quietly, and that summer
we accidentally heard that he was
George W. Mulqueen's brother."
"So you were not drunk?" asked
"No, sir" replied the prisoner, "I
"How do vou know you were?"
"Because, when the ofBoer arrested
me I had 311 in my pocket and was
not afraid to go home," stoutly main
tained the prisoner.
The justice mused a moment, hold
ing his venerable head in his folded
hands. Then he spake:
"Prisoner, you are correot You
were not' drunk. But you were very
liable to get drunk at any moment
Go your ways and don't shave the
statute so' close another time."
