which forbude the teaching of slaves and

Again, it is known that when nigra
slavery, ut ilrst prohibited, was finally In
troduced into Georgia in urn many of
tbeso slaves came from ivmth Carolina.
Art in 1744 n negro school was opened in
Charleston, it may bo inferred that some
of these slaves must have brought with
them to Crtorgia some knowledge of read
ing and Writing, Tho Charleston school
was still inn nourishing condition in 1759
and was taught by an educated negro,
likely from England, Although it was
for free negroes only, many slaves, who
L'veu then hired time, sent their children
to this school. In time other schools were
opened, and a number of colored persons
from .Savannah and Augusta, (In., scut
their children to Charleston to be taught,
According to tradition, some of these
students returned end opened schools iu
Savannah and In Augusta. No one, bow
ever, was lawfully permitted to give book
instruction to slaves, not even iu any one
of the three KV Whatever was done In
this way was done clandestinely, ami if
discovered was sure to get its author into
trouble. There were nevertheless several
school kept clandestinely in Augusta and
in Savannah. Another class of teachers
nsra the poor whites, who eked out a mis
erable living by clandestinely teaching free
negroes and slaves. Some of them might
have been denominated not "old field
schools. " but "old chip schools." When
I some aged, impecunious white lady would
i ngreo to teuch the children of such slaves
as had lured their time, the Children wero
said to go toiler boUMtO ''pick Up chip. "
They were busily engaged in this work
when an officer was likely to he around.
The most noted of these clandestine
schools for colored children was taught by
a colored man in Savannah, it was
opened in 1818 or 1819 by n colored French
man named Julian Proumoutainu from
San Domingo. Up to ls"0 this school was
taught openly, for before that date the
lawsof Georgia did not forbid the teaching
of a free person of color. In referring to
this prohibitory law in justice it ought to
bo admitted that the requirements of the
"institution of slavery" were such that it
would have been unwise to undertake to
maintain the system of slavery and run
the risk of having the slaves read such
literature ns began then to bo circulated
ty the abolitionists. It is prop'-r nlso to
add that many slaveholders did not share
this fear and were wiliing in the faco of
slavery to give their slaves elementary
teaching in rending and writing.
After Dec. M, 1889, it was made a penal
offense to teach a negro or free person of
color to read or write. Hcnca from that
time ail negro schools were clandestine.
Froumoutaine's school, however, nour
ished under him for more than iu years.
It laid the foundation of ,the educational
work among the Colored people of Georgia.
Several of bis pupils clandestinely taught
school to the beginning of the war. Bul

The Tailor's Argument.
In "Thrums" lived a merchant, tailor
who ordered from a friend, a book agent,
a completo set of nn encyclopedia which
was being published in monthly parts.
All went well till tho delivery of the lost
volume, which proved to be about one
half larger than any of the others. Deliv
ery was refused on the ground that the
volume was not according to sample and
broke the uniformity of the set. Mr.
Comrie Thompson was then artingheriff
substitute for Forfarshire, and Hie result
ing ease came before him. The plaintiff
stated his case, and Mr. Thompson then
advised the defendant to take delivery,
"Now, Mr.- , don't be foolish. If the
book is larger, they don t propose to charge
vou anything extra, aud you ought to
consider you are having a bargain."
"Well," pleaded the defendant, "I'm a
tailor, ami if your lordship were to order
a coat from me, and I quoted a price and
afterward delivered the coat a half size
bigger than you wanted it, you would, 1
have no doubt, refuse delivery. Aud I
might then say: 'Don't be foolish, sheriff.
The coat, it's true is much larger than
you want, but tbeoth is tbe same, and
1 won't make any extra charge. You ought
to consider you are having a bargain.' "
This rather tickled the court, which ex
pNasd its appreciation of tho point some

The Motherlesn Children.
Mrs. Richard Clarke, wife of the con
gressman from Mobile, Is one nf the few
women brave enough to scatter witty
things in the waste of five minute olTlrial
calls. At the house of Mrs. Hale of .Maine
tho church servico was mentioned,
"There's) onn portion of the litany,"mld
Mrs, Clnrke, "that always used to bother
me. It's where wo pray especially for the
'widowed and fatherless.' I never could
seo why they needed praying for so much,
as I thought motherless children deserved
pity much more, but I've just found out
why the motherlean aren't mentioned. It's
because there are ho few of them, as the
first thing a man does when he is bereft of
his wife is to look nround for a new moth
er for his children."
In tho laugh that followed Mrs. Clnrke
clinched her argument on the litany with,

Your boy will be a man some day. Will he be an insig.

you give him.
You hopa he'll succeed. It lie3 with you as to whether
he will or not. You may not think so. You may think
you can't do much with him. He's obstinate, perhaps
hard to handle.

The father of Frederick the Great thought his boy
was a blockhead up to tha tima ha was 16 year3 of
age, but he didn't stop educating him.
There's one thing that all great men have had, as boys,
as young men. They have had it given to them or they
have given it to themselves. Had they never had it
they would never have become great. They have had
Your boy cannot possibly ba anything, become any
thing, without knowing. The more ha knows the bet
ter he'll ba. Knowledge is power, riches, fame. You
want to do your duty by him? Give him a chance.
Teach him or let him teach himself. Give him education.
"Without books God is silent, justica dormant, natural
science at a stand, philosophy lama, letters dumb, and
all things involved in Cimmerian darkness."
If you give him books he will soon chese for himself
the subject in which he is most interested, which ha
can most easily study. This study is tha one ha is mo3t
fitted to pursue, the one in which he will make the
mo3t success. It is natural that it should be so.
You think: "Books, ah yes, how many hundreds of dol
lars will I have to spendbafore he discovers what he
is best fitted for?"
True, but there's another way. Invest $4.50 and give
your boy the advantage of that greatest of all refer

place him on a par with tha college graduate.
THE TRIBUNE EDITION is the best and latest edition
