A Message of Peace
Standing on the eve of a great cam
paign one can catch the glimmer ami
dawn of a new era, of a great politi
cal contest. Way down In Hethleham
was born a Nazarene, the wine men
camo from the Bast and beholding
the beautiful babe maid, "Let there be
Peace on earth, f ood will to men."
The sun shone with more splendor
upon the black people sending out a
message of peace. Pence Is the house
hold word of truth, it Is the beautiful
emblem of a nation's liberty, the god
des of peace Is more beautiful than
the goddess of war. He who fights
with a sword sh.ill perish, but he
who chooses peac" as his companion
shall endure, yd i doubt not thro'
the ages one increasing purpose runs
and the thoughts of men are broaden
ed by the process of the sun. dazing
thro' the landscape you can catch a
gleam of a golden i bread runtiing thro'
the centuries pointing to (ind's master
piece the world of peace and a perfect
civilization. The great conclave of
Individuals streaming onward towards
the great political Held have met In u
mighty clash, but trom this confusion
great men have risen up to take
charge of affairs. From nil sides
are coming leaders, who are taking
ine people nnu leaciimg iiioni 10 on
up their heads higher in the air. Lei
the secession and ttrife among the ne
groes In Kansas City cease. Let ever
particular and individual negro hav
one common purpose in view, striving
for peace. Peace is a mighty sword
along side of sister truth, which cause
men to tremble and to turn pale;
cause men to choose God as their
leader, and the liible as their sword;
cause them to be lilted from the lowly
depths of humility, to the higher
planes of leadership anil generalship.
There Is no living force within the
confines of this universe which can
stop the mighty army of peacemakers.

to the Negro Race
Let the Hislug Son, as the great
mouth-piece of the Negroes of this
community disseminate peace among
them. Let all this strife and endless
warfare among '.hem come to a sud
den termination. 'lhe Son a few
months ago waged warfare, now nil
has been quieted upon the ocean, and
the Lord said, "Let there bo light and
there was light, and He spoke to the
llillowous Ocean and silliness reigned
and behold He said unto Simon and
I'eter, come ye unto your master as
tho' he spoke it today. The same ex
pressions hold true as landmarks of
indeflnability. something tangible from
whence to proceed. The Son fought
men to purge away their faults to
make them stronger leaders and to
put them in their proper status in
this community. Oh would that we
had ten million tongues and ten mil
lion voices proclaiming for the
same great object I'eace. We want
peace, we want p. -ace. We want peace
among our people because there is a
great battle to be fought and every In
dividual Is needed. A great black
wall Is being built around us, a great
black cloud is gathering over us and a
great calamity seems awaiting us.
Hear up for the sceptre shall not de
part from .Tudea null Slilloh returns
and then there will be a gathering of
the people. Oh let us come together
upon a high plane of I'eeility and har
nony. Let every negro help one an
other; let us, like the Hebrew chil
dren, cry unto God to send among lis
one who can stem the tide, who can
breast the storm and waves and gales
of tufiirious prejudice, and reach up
and help the eagle in his flight, and
buckle unto him the emblem of
America's highest object Peace.. Yes

LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES.
Speaking of outlay and return for
money and time expended In a period
of the world's history where every
thing Is reduced to the science of
'.high finance." and when the compe
tition along all lines compels each one
to seek for adequate return of dollar
for dollar, we doubt If there Is a school
throughout the country that makes a
better practical demonstration of "re
turns" than does Lincoln Institute.
Seven dollars per month, the price
of board to the student, Is a smaller
amount than most young people are
well fed upon at home in this day of
exhorbitaut food prices; and the mod
esty, simplicity and economy required
in matters of dress mean auso, that In
this line, the student Is better and
more sensibly clothed for the money
expended than he would be at home;
while the lessous gained in matters
of food, dress, general hygiene and
household economy are invaluable.
Six new pianos of good make have
just been Installed for the use of stu
dents who take Instrumental music;
and when it Is recalled that the In
stitution has two separate and dis
tinct, departments of music, vocal and
Instrumental, each presided over by a
specialist in ner line or worn, repre
senting the conservatories of Chicago
and others of equal merit. It will be
seen that the opportunities here offer
ed for the study of music are first
class. Thus it is in each department
thoroughness, skill and promess. enii
nate the entire life of the school.
