Mr. James Davis of Lawrence, Kas.,

Clod Davis of Kansas City was also
here to see his family Sunday.
Mr, xsathan rrazler, a young man,
is quite ill with lung trouble.
Mr. George Long was In Kansas
City Thanksgiving day and returned
Mr. George Porter, Mr. Conway, Mr.
Hughes and Mrs. Hooker paid up tjelr
subscriptions. We hope others will
do likewise. Why Is It that I have to
ask you for the money for the Rlsiug
Son. You pay for white papers 10c a
week and will not pay for a colored
people which publish your good deeds
and not your bad deeds when you steal
something or sueVl or sent to the
penitentiary, you will find such pub
lish in white papers. If you respect
jour race you will patronize this paper
and pay for It, and not having us to
come around after the money and you
refuse. When you leave town you ex
pect to see your name in the paper and
some won't subscribe ttid some that
do subscribe won't pay for It. Vet
you say you lovo your rare It you do
prove It. ,
be known. As was stated In our Is
sue of several weeks ago, the Imperi
al Brewing company had charge of
Forest park and every Negro who
dared to venture there was told to
leave at once. It Is stated also that
the Imperial Brewing company has
control of the Willis Wood theatre,
where, colored ladles are Invited to
cither take the gallery where toughs
sit, or leave the house. This Instance
of incivility has been particularly
crushing to tho feelings of our wives
and daughters. This company con
duets a brewery, tho product of which
It Is expected shall be consumed by
the general public. The Imperial
company has made a strong bid for
Xpgro patronage so far as the drink'
Ing of Its beer Is conernod and thou
sands of dollars have gone Into Its
coffers as the result. But It Is now
time for tho Negro to look up at the
sign before he enters a saloon for a
glass of beer and If he sees the word
"Imperial," pass It by. There Is
plenty of other boor brewed by men
who would not think of offering the
manner of Insult to the colored race
which has been directed by the ltn
perial Brewing company, and ItV
hooves the Negroes to retaliate by
rejecting the use of Its beer.
The Executive Committee of the In
torstate Literary Association will hold
its annual meeting foon to transact
business relative to tho session which

NEW THING IN DENTISTRY.
Material for False Teeth Plates Close
ly Resembles Natural Flesh.
People unfortunate enough to bo
compelled to use false teeth will wel
come the news that a substanco has
been found for false teeth plates which
so closely resembles tho natural flesh
that it cannot be distinguished. It Is
said that one of the greatest difficul
ties dentists have been compelled to
overcome has been to find a material
which would give this result. Tho new
substance is called rose pearl. It was
first used In Europe, and when the
president of the New York Dental
company, 1029 Main street, was in the
old country this summer he bought the
sole right to use It in America. Tho
new material Is so natural In Its ap
priiranco that It will easily deceive an
expert. Tho rose pearl has attracted
much attention among both the lay
me nand students in the dental colleges
who have seen tho samples here.
THANKSGIVING DAY AT THE OLD
FOLKS' AND ORPHANS' HOME.
This day is always looked forward
to by the inmates with much pleasure,
and rightly so. One of the little girls
wrote In Mr composition Innt Monday
as follows: "We had turkey and
chicken and cranberry ' sauce and
pumpkin pic and apple pic and candy
To Alderman W. H. Otto they were
indebted for the turkey and cranberry
sauce. For years ho has not forgotten
this Institution at this time of year.
Mrs. Mary Ixmg. who was once ma
tron, never fails to bring something
when Thanksgiving comes. It was she
who brought tho chicken and tho lies.
Mr. and Mrs. Moore furnished the
cvudy and nuts.
A largo donation of vegetables, jelly,
rice, etc., waa received from schools,
churches and private Individuals.

The Home Is rapidly reaching tho
dignity of au instltltlon. Will the.
people support an institution? We
think they will.
The Home has been very fortunate in
securing tho services of Miss Shepherd
of Leavenworth, Kas., as matron. She
lnw had experience In tho work and Is
In every way qualified to perform all
the duties. Mrs. Joanna Mooro and
sho are in charge. So with tho hearty
co-operation of the public there should
soon be established an Institution of
which Kansas City will be Juitly
Ono of tho tem hers last year called
upon her pupils to bring a coin eained
by themselves. The sehemo w-as a
most excellent one, for It set the little
people to thinking. They were of the
first grade. One sold rags; another
old bottles, another ran an errand for
a neighbor, another blacked his fath
er's boots; and another washed dishes
anything thnt was honorable to earn
a penny or two. Only a very few came
empty handed because of lack of thrift
In finding something to do.
This teacher helped the children
more than she helped tho Home, In
that, she laid the foundation for future
In one of the homes of this city Is
a little child thnt Is the pet and idol
or the whole family. Presents come
upon her In showers at Christmas time.
jst year her father said he wished
her to divide her presents with those
less fortunate than herself, lest she
become selfish and mean.
She was told to select from among
her belongings something for each

scarce more than a baby, waa taken
out there and given the pleasuro of dis
tributing her gtftB.
These Instances are mentioned be
cause of their fur -reaching import.
1 ho way In which these little deeds
cf charity were done led to a double
blessing a blessing to him that gave
as well as to him that received.
A full report of the receipts and ex
epnditures dining the bint two yeirs Is
duo the public, but owing to tho many
extra demands by way of special taxes,
etc.. the managers have not been able
to spare the money to publish these
accounts. All who havo given to tho

may look for this report soon.
Rarely has the American stage had
such a nemphatlc and lasting dramatic
success an "In Old Kentucky," which
has now reached Its eleventh season
and bids fair to remain an established
Instltuon with playgoers for another
decade. With a complete new $20,000
prodfttVlon prepared during tho sum
mer for the season of 1903-4, and ff
company of unusual excellence, It will
again be presented In this city at the
Grand, commencing Sunday matinee,
December fi. In this delightful ro
mance of Southern life, the public has
evidently found Just what it wants.

neither complex nor Involved. But
the in idents how they multiply! The
lieroire swings across a chasm and

the villian. There Is music, mid danc

a lynching party and tho culmination
of a "-nntnlneer's feud. There Is ex
citement and heart Interest, real pat.io.s

Writers of melodrama, thoso who are
studying the public to learn bow to

successful career of that sterling
