The Casey-Murphy Handicap

IT never pays to boast. Casey and Murphy worked side by side at a table in the Royal Pickle Factory, corking pickle bottles and dipping the corked necks into red sealing-wax. They were both well along in years, but the spirit of unconquered youth still lingered on their tongues, and as they worked they talked.

Liberia, the Negro Republic

MOTHER Nature deals out the vegetation of tropical Africa with a lavish hand, and no one need starve in Liberia who is willing to work, but the civilized negro in Africa, at least in Liberia, as I have observed after nearly five years’ residence in the republic, seems to need the encouraging example of and contact with the right kind of white men.
