VOLUME VIII.
THE OLD FOLKS' AND ORPHANS'
HOME.
Mrs. Martha Jones died at the home
Sunday evening, March 8. at 8 o'clock.
She was all alone In the world, but her
amlabel dispoelton won true friends
who stuck to her to the last.
Her coming to the Home was a ben
efit to her and It was a decided benefit
' to the Home, for peace attended her
every action. She was grateful for all
that was done for her. She set a noble
example to the other Inmates, and she
was kind and gentle, and patient with
the children.
Rev. W. H. Wheeler of the Asbmy
church, andl presiding elder, J. Will
Jackson, administered the sacrament
to her a few days ago.
Rev. S. W. Bacote spoke in a very
touching manner over the remains,
There was none of kin to follow her
body to the grave, but eight women of
the Association attended the funeral
and four of these went to Union ceme
tery, wheer the body was Interred.
Mrs. Jones was 78 years old.
MRS. I-OSEE'S ENTERTAINMENT,
Through the influence of Mrs. Ger
trude eMyers, Mrs. H. M. I-osee gave
a vaudevile and stereoptioon enter
talnment at Turner Hall, Feb. 24, 1903,
for the Home.
It would add greatly to the credit of
our people, were it a fact that those
of us who have talent, gladly came to
the assistance of this charitable lady
.'Vfa '.nr rvfcde w pragwaiw-all that k iron-
1 reed to be. But truth compels us
to say that all those asked to take a
part were either too busy or too much
Indisposed to help those of another
race assist the most helpless of our
own.
Miss eMyera was not to be daunted,
She secured the services of a band of
newsboys. The newsboys from the
World sang several selections and did
their best to please. They seemed
satisfied with "thank you" for pay
but some day we hope to be able to
return to the World newsboys a more
substantial mark of appreciation.
Songs and dances were given by
two wee girls, friends of Mrs. Losse
Then followed scenes o fthe Hawaiian
islands.
The pictures shown were taken by
Mrs. Losse herself while on a visit to
7 " these islands. She gave a brief ex-
planatlon of each. This part of the
program was particularly Interesting,
Plants peculiar to the country were
shown, many of the most beautiful
buildings, and the natives, were
brought before us. The large expanse
of water with Its many vessels seemed
within a few feet of us.
Mrs. Loseee went to some expense
to give us this treat. Her husband
seemed to take as much Interest in the
whole affair as she did. Even some
of their friends came out to help
to make the affair a success.
The people who should have been
there were not presort. It Is Just such
treatment of those who put themselves
to trouble to help us that makes larger
day by day the ranks of those who
see no good in us who see nothing
but selfishness, envy, and indifference
when there should be unity and rare

v Miss Myers worked hard and de
served much better support.
Mrs. Thompson, wife of Policeman
Thompson, sold $12.50 worth of tick
ets. The proceeds were $21.00.

Sermon by Pastor. Text Acts 9: 29.
"And the city was filled with con
fusion." His subect was as follows:
"The Right Will Conquer the World."
His discourse was acute and wittty.
In his profound oratorical and Bib
lical discourse, he described the des
truction of Mt. Etna, took up the riot
at Ephesus, and be added that aa the
people were called in question for
that days' uproar, so will the world be
called In question. In his most elo
quent discourse he dwelt considerably
on the path of righteousness. His
eloquence was almost unexcelled. Af
ter sermon choir entered choir box,

to Conquer."
Doors of church were opened for the

ye heads, oh ye gates." "Wake the

City. Kansas. The Pleasant Green
Baptist choir of Kansas City, Is said to
be unexcelled In the city. And when
they peeled forth In sweet melodious
strains, "Rock of Age." and "Oh how
lovely is Zion." the audience seemed
to be charmed and requested that
they hear more of It. Mr. Waller
Countee, our most excellent organist
certainly lost no time In striving to
make his music felt, and I assure you
he failed to fail.
After pastor had made a few rich
remarks, choir sang. In voices that
seemed like angel voices, the follow
ing anthems. "Nearer, My God. to
Thee," "Wako the song of Jubilee,
Sweetly In Music Swelling." Pis

As usual the cantata of Ruth Is hav
ing a hard struggle. There are always
a few people willing to do all they
can to make anything a success, and

way. Never give up.

If we would work for our church
because it was our duty and not for

work for is to be praised and talked
of by man.
