| A WORTHY SPEECH BY A CARLISLE GRADUATE.
At a Farmers' Institute, held at Oneida, Wisconsin, last month, Josiah Powless, class '91, delivered an address which in the words of an educated listener, "greatly surprised and delighted the visiting gentlemen, and was listened to with interest by all."
Josiah said in part:
The Indians need to learn practical ways of manual work. There is art in farming; there is art in ploughing a deep straight furrow. There is art in raising big potatoes. There is art in every line of work.
The Government has allotted land for each individual member of the tribe, which is a starting point for industrial training, if the Indian will look at the subject in the right light.
We have passed beyond savagery and barbarism on our road to the height of civilization.
Industrial activity should go hand in hand in the progress toward that point.
We see the neat and tidy ways in which our pale faced neighbors arrange their farms and how they accumulate property.
One may ask where is the source of all this?
It comes simply through economy and industrial training, backed by ambition.
The Indian is physically able to work. All he needs is to train his head, his hand and his eyes to the beauty and profitableness of industrial art.
We must understand that industrial work of whatever nature is honorable and respectable. The Indian has not learned to respect work in its fullest sense, but one consoling thought occurs to me. There is a growing tendency on our part to become better cultivators of the soil.
The time is not far off when even this generation shall compete with the white men and add their support to the great industries of America, when the Red Man shall have a voice in the local and national government, and proclaim his right as a full citizen, and not be regarded as the "poor ignorant Indian."
So now is the time to muster in the industrial army and prepare to join the advancing charge of American developments.
The times are favorable, and it requires of us vim and ambition.

|Dr. Josiah Powlas, an Oneida and a graduate of the Class 1891.
after leaving Carlisle worked his way
through the Milwaukee Medical College. He married before he finished his course but continued his studies and received his diploma. He has been practising his profession ever since, mostly among his own people, and at the present time is Agency Physician and in charge of the Mission Hospital
at Oneida. Aside from his influence as a physician, he is a man respected and honored among his people, having only lately been elected chairman in his township. Dr. Powlas married Electa Schenandore. a Carfisle girl. They live with their two lovely daughters, aged thirteen and nine years,
in the Mission Hospital. Mrs. Powlas is a splendid housekeeper, as are most Carlisle girls who have had the advantage of the Outing. That Dr. and Mrs. Powlas are ideal parents, is shown by the behavior and deportment of their little girls.
