        FACTS WORTH STUDYING.


             CLIPPED FROM VARIOUS SHEETS.


                 Public Taxation and Public Schools.
  Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama,
Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and Tennessee had a popula-
tion in 1900 of 18,975,665, of which 11,776,391 was white and 7,199,374,
or 40.1 per cent was Negro-81.4 per cent of all the Negroes in the
U. S.
  The latest reports of the several departments of education indicate
that these eleven States are now spending about $32,068,851 for ele-
mentary and secondary public education; this is slightly more than
Pennsylvania spends annually for the same purpose; twenty-one mil-
lions less than New  York State spent for public education in 1907,
and not quite twice as much as Massachusetts spent in 1906.
The wealth of these eleven Southern States is approximately twelve
billion dollars, while New York State has property worth fifteen
billions, Massachusetts five billions, and Pennsylvania eleven and a
half billions.
  The South is spending $32,068,851 on her public schools, both white
and black; nearly three fourths of this went to salaries of teachers;
but Negro teachers received but 12 per cent of this, yet the amount
spent for Negro teachers is by far the largest item of expense of
the Negro public schools.
