DR. VASS' "WORK APPROVED.
Scholarly and Industrious Bible Lec
turer as Race Benefactor.
Appreciation for (he work which the
Bev. Dr. S. N. Vass Is doing for the
race through the American Baptist
Publication society as a Biblical lec
turer Is Increasing. This Is as it should
be. As the race advances In Intellec
tuality and culture the more clearly It
sees the necessity of giving proper en
couragement to the men and women
who are doing the real constructive
work for racial betterment
Besides the many expressions of ap
proval from pastors, Sunday school su
perintendents, Y. 1L C. A. secretaries,
.educators, missionaries, newspaper
editors and college presidents of Dr.
Vass work, the leading religious or
ganizations the country over have felt
the benefit of Dr. Vass' lectures as giv
en by him 'in churches without re
gards to denominational affiliation.
The following from the Bev. Dr. E.
W. D. Isaac, leader of the young peo
ple's work of the national Baptist con
vention. Is worthy of note. Dr. Isaac
says: "We are largely Indebted to the
American Baptist Publication society
for the labors of Dr. S. N. Vass during
the time he has been with us holding
"Bible Institutes among the young
.people of our churches. His service
among us has created a love for Bible
study in many of -the young people
whom we could not reach."
"Without any attempt 'at flattery we
feel that simple justice to the man
makes It Incumbent upon us to say
that Dr. Vass has a most thorough
knowledge of the Bible and is one
of the most competent teachers of
Holy Writ that there are among our
people. His methods are unique and
at the same time comprehensive.
Wherever he has delivered lectures be
has left the people who listened to
them hungering and thirsting for Bible
If the society did no other work
among the colored people than sustain
Dr. Vass for this exceptional character
of Bible work that he is doing it would
do enough in this particular to wed
the colored people to it and inspire
them to labor and pray for its success.
We have had frank acknowledgments
from some of them and expressions of
gratitude from others. The most val
uable missionary work that Is being
done among the colored people today,
as we see It. is this promotion of Bible
study as a result of the work that Dr.
iVass is doing.
The race feels grateful to the society
for his services, and. In addition to the
making of an open door for him in all
sections of the country and the exten
sion of loyal welcome to him, it Is
giving him the best And richest com
mendation and the most unswerving

light and nearly all the inventions
that have since brought gas light
into universal use in dty homes.
The New Amber Glow Light breaks
all world's records. It yields a
measured volume of mil 157
candles of genuine Amber colored
light while burning a trifle less
than 31 f a cenra worth of gas
This is more light for less money
than sdence has ever deemed it
possible to produce. And the txci
that this huge volume of light is
pure Amber in color makes it
certain that this unit is destined
to generally displace other heme
lights throughout the dty.
To help introduce this new light we
are now distributing an "Amber
Glow Book." A book that is full
of Intensely interesting and
astounding facts. It tells why
Amber light enhances harmonies
of dresa and decoration why
Amber light makes ths skin look
soft and smooth why Mary
Garden demands Amber light
when.she sings why professional
shooting experts - wear Amber
glasses and why Amber light is
most-soothing to tba eyes.
