A Touching Tribute to the Negroes
Rev. J. Howard Carpenter, pastor
of the Baptist church at West Point,
Ga., preached a sermon recently on
the nergo problem. It shows profound
thought, and breathes, throughout, a
spirit of conciliation and amity, in
strong contrast to many. We take an
extract, which will be found below,
from the sermon. The preacher,
among other things, said:
“But it is our duty to help the negro,
because we owe him something. VVe
are actually in debt to him. When we
multiply our gifts a thousand fold, we
will not be giving to him. He will still
be our creditor by millions.
His own faithful hands swept our
fields ot their virgin forests, and broke
the soil all webbed with roots, and
sowed the seed and cultivated the
plants until the wilderness bloomed
like a rose and filled our barns with

Fellow citizens, we venerate Wash
ington as The “Father of our Country;”
Lee as the embodiment of southern
chivalry and honor; Jackson as the
Bonaparte of the confederacy, and Da
vis as the apex-of patriotism and mod
el of statesmanship And we would
like to erect enduring monuments
to their virtues. But I feel
that the immortal souls of these
men—tor they cannot die—would be
among the first; yea, the first to lay in
solid rock, a granite pedestal, and
build on that a marble monolith, riv
aling the snow in whiteness, to perpet
uate the memory of the faithfulness of
the negro slave.
There is no sweeter picture in mem
ory’s gallery than that which portrays
the deathless love of the negro slave
for his roaster. Indeed, with us there
is no complete picture of home life
and fireside happiness without his
Upon their own black bosoms they
cradled our infant heads and soothed
our childish fears with never-dying
melodies. They taught our baby lips
their first innocent prattle, and some
of us to-day, still true to early train
ing, forget our college days and use
“black mammy’s” grammar. Our first
tottering step was made while their
poor black hands were extended invit-
ingly. They guarded us in childhood,
sympathizing in our sorrows and re
joicing in our happiness. They added
cheer to every festivity and grief to
every sorrow. They stood around the
couch of our dying loved ones as tear
ful sentinels, and with their own hands,
mads soft and tender in a service of
love, they closed the eyes of our dead
darlings and smoothed the hair they
had lovingly kissed. And when the
body wgs laid to rest in the old church
yard there were many offerings ot ten
der love from lairer hands and whiter
lips, but when the tears, like dew dis
tilled upon the new made mound,there
sparkled none with purer light than
those of the negro slave."
These sentiments do credit to the
mind and heart of the minister, and
they will find a responsive echo in the
hearts of thousands and tens of thous
ands of Southern men and women.
However loud and noisy may be the
claims of northern men, that they are
the best friends of the negro, history
and troth will record the fact, that,

Burning and Itching.
I was sick In the fall ot 1888 with a burning
and itching so bad that in three weeks I was
covered with a rash, and could net sleep nights

be salt rheum (eczema), and said they had nev

help from any of them, or from any medicine
that I cofcld get hold of until I tried your Cutl
