Editor Davis tells the Equal Rights aspirants that their Injudicious

lhal the more they agtltate and clamor the further they get from the full
enjoyment of suelj rights as they liave.
After calling attention to tbe fact that tha leader* of this movement,
William J. White, lias Barber and W. E. Du Boll, have found It advisable
al limes to leave the stale and have forfeited their Influence on account
of their utterances, the negro editor concludes In the following timely sen
“Character and usefulness In men and women are not created

ourselves fn the hearts of our neighbors. The only right* that will
remain permanently with ue. are those we earn by our faithfulness.

our constitutional rights, sometimes w* ere elmoet of the opinion

Miss Berry is one of the deservedly distinguished citizens of the stale.
If Georgia were In the habit of ernwnlng Illustrious service with laurel
w maths, one of these would fall on the slender shoulders of this North
Georgia heroine nf education.
And the world must come to know Miss Berry anti her work better
than It does today, and to help her more No struggle ns brave ns that
and ns majestic In Its motive should go unaided hy the best forces of a
civilization whose own trond Is upward and altruistic.
If God helps Ihese who help themselves, then men should follow Ills
example And 11 men help those who help themselves, then men who aro
able to help at all. should help Miss Berry In her noble and heroic work.
These are country boys gathered from the hills snd Ihe /arms of
North Georgia. Strong, rugged and manly, taken fresh front the purity
and vigor of the country, they nre caught here In the very turn and crisis
of their lives and am moulded Into men In whom the state Is rich. And
no Investment that the stale or Its wealthy citizens ran make will pay
richer returns to Georgia and to the future than money put Into the help
nnd advancement of this Rond work
A few days ngo Miss Berry’s school celebrated Its fifth anniversary,
and the srene that transpired at the rinse of the exere|ee» was as slgnlfl
cant as It was Inspiring ‘ These rugged country hoys In their superb devo
tion to their teacher and to the school filled Ihe hearts of nil present with
a sense of the Indestructible foundation upon which II was hullded—on
the strength of which- Miss Berry ha* so often said that when she was
gone "the boy* would carry on the school."
At the cloze of the exercises one of these young fellows rose up and
told how the boys themselves, appreciating their teacher's hemic struggle,
had resolved to add their little mile of help to her own brave work and
how In their vacation. In various waya that they could develop, they each
one hnd made nnd saved a dollar to lay on the altar of this rural alma
mater. And so saying he placed a hag containing $71 upon the desk of the
president. Then before the tears had dried from the brave little tenoher’a
eyes, there arose In his place a young man representing the alumni of the
last two or three years, and In a similar speech presented the founder In
behalf of the young alumni, with a purse of $5:1.
And following Iasi upon this the teachers presented from the savings
of their slender salaries.a puis* of $210 to express their unselfish conse
cration to Ihe work.
It ts not strsttge that under the Inspiration of a scene of such hemic
self helpfulness that the citizens of Borne have stirred themselves and
are giving In yearly Installments to help the school.
And It should not he strange that out of this Incident and out of this
splendid Impression which Miss. Berry’s noble labors have made upon Ihe
state, that we who live In this Capital of Georgia, nnd that good men
nnd good women throughout thls^m>spwrous slate who know of her re
markable Institution, should Join their names to the subscription blank
which Is going about In Georgia and pledge a little at least of our yearly
