CHARLES E. STUMP, TOE KANSAS-FARMER MEWS
PAPER CORRESPONDENT, HAS BEEN SPENDING
THE PAST WEEK IN DALLAS, TEXAS, AND VISIT.
, ING OTHER INTERESTING POINTS IN THE LONE
Dallas, Tex. Have you ever been to
a-meeting of the Bishops of "the A. M.
. ChurchT If you have not I would
advise you to go to one, for it is well
worth all the money it will cost you to
go to sco these wonderful leaders of
this race of ours. I know whereof I
speak, for I am at ono right now, and
I am as happy as a Juncnug in the
summer time, when be can get in
among some .good blackberries. Tell
the people X told you this.
I-have been telling you from time to
timo about this meeting, and what it
meant, and now I am prepared to say
I told you so. When Iw so many
ef my people around that great church
building. I am sure that it was a church
for white folks, for it is without a
"doubt one of the finest church build
ings in Texas, and it is all due to the
fact that they had a real man as pas
tor, Bev. C. W. Abington, who is going
to be promoted ono of these days to
tho position of Secretary of Missions.
He is to be tho successor to Dr. J. W.
Rankin, and I am sore that this is not
raying too much. He has won his
spurs, and like Bishop W. Sampson
Brooks, he .has wen his way to the
hearts of his-people.
A fellow can certainly onjoy what
he earns, and I looked into tho faeos of
all theso bishops I thought of how they
had to work up from the ground on the
top. Such men as Bishops B. F. Lee,
who .is tho oldest of them all that is
to say he has been bishop longer, and
he is now called tho senior. He pre
sides over tho meeting, and he is just
one moro well trained man, full of the
spirit of our Lord and Master.
I have been in the Sanitarium, again,
and Dr. H. W. Conrad has again been
looking after tho bugs. He has been
listening to them talk, and upset their
plans to get mo to another world. He
-says he is going to givo them a great
chase,- and land them in their graves,
if they don't stay away from me.
But "now let me come to the Bishops
meeting, and say a fce things about
them. They are here from all over the
country and they are talking about big
things here. Dr. C. W. Abington has
0Cn assisted, or backed in all of his
plans "by the man who is taking his
placo among .the great men, Bishop
William Decker Johnson, of Plains,
Ga., and who was made Bishop at tho
general conference last May held in
St Louis, but you would take him to
bo a bishop of many years standing.
He is just a leader of men,- that's all,
and he is going to take thc place of
some of those leaders who have left us,
such as Grant, Gaines, Arnctt, Derrick,
Payne and others of the thinking rank.
I am not going to attempt to tell
you all I saw or heard, or all the men
and women I met during this meeting
for it would just take. too long. But I
am just going to tell you so much and
stop. I was there before the bishops
got there, cxcccpt Bishop Johnson. I
heard all the preliminary meetings, and
was in some of them myself.
It was a great sight to sec all them
Bishops, and general officers open that
big meeting, and then to look at that
packed auditorium. All anxious to pay
tribute to their leaders. Tho meeting
was called to order by the Father in
God, Bishop Benjamin Franklin Lee,
senior bishop of tho connection, and a
wonderful character. He took time in
his boyhood days to prepare to' take his
place among thinkers, and he is just
one of them. He is a wonderful man,
and while his age is telling on him, he
has a Teal young brain, and will cope
with any of them.
Mong tho other Bishops were: W.
H. Heard, Philadelphia; John Hurst,
Baltimore, Md.; Devi J. Coppin, Phil
adelphia. Fa.; Charles Spencer Smith,
Detroit, Mich.; W. D. Chappello, Colum
bia, S. C.; J. S. Flipper, Atlanta, Ga.;

cago; J. M. Conner, Little Bock, Ark.;
William Decker Johnson, Plains, Ga.;
Bishop W. Sampson Brooks, was in
West Africa, and W. T, Vernon, in
South Africa, but special prayers went
up for them.
An interesting opening was' hod, and
Bishop W. D. Chapelle, preached one
more .great sermon. He is a great
preacher, and knows what to say and
how to say it He took his text from
the Song of Solomons, and I made sure
that he was going to sing, when he
said the Song of Solomon, and I felt
then like getting up -and walking out,
for I was there to hear preachingand
sot singing, I thought that he was
going to throw back his head and. go
like a. dying calf, and believe mo honey
he will Join right with you in speaking
forth words that -would inspire. Bishop
Chappelle is a great preacher, and that
was a. great sermon he- preaehod that
morning. His is & scholar of he high

rannlon was administered, and a tcccss

Thcro was a slight change, for
Bishop Brooks will nefhavo charge 6f

work has been attached to tho Fifth
District -under Bishop H. Blanton
Parks, f will not comment on this,
for it will be "discussed among tho min
isters. Now I come to another important
meeting there, college presidents and
deans of colleges. They have formed
an anocfation, having many good
things in -view to help tho people, and
to give ignorance and illiteracy a black
eye. At the head is one of tho most
noted educators in the race, and a man
who is doing so much to help' the young
people, Prof. G. A. Edwards, President
of Kittroll College, Kittrcll, N. C. I
wish yOu could have heard his wonder
ful address to tho other presidents and
the deans, nc said somo real good
things and meant every word ho said.
He Is a scholar and a man. Tho Sec
retary is Dr. 8. L. Green, of Arkansas,
andthc Treasurer is Dr. O. A. Vaughn,
of Kansas. I was around "with these
men, and heard that prince of orators,
tho man who has chargo of all the edu
cational work, Prof. A. S. Jackson, of
Waco, Tex. Ho discussed something I
never hcardof beforo, hence I cannot
tell you what it means: "Standardi
zation of Schools," and I .could not
find my dictionary to tell y6n tho mean
ing of the word. I do know he wanted
better pay for teachers, better quali
nod teachers for denominational
schools. He declared that education
was within tho reach of all and the
only thing necessary was to get it. It
was a great address delivered by a
Dr. C. W. Abington, is now booked

TO REJUVENATE VELVET HATS
Headgear May Be Remodeled by
Buttonholing Edges Over and

If your velvet or felt hat shows
signs of wear on the edge of the brim, It
may be rejuvenated as well as trimmed
by buttonholing the edge, over

close together or far apart, and be
shallow or deep according to the
damage to be covered and the effect
to be gained." A dot from a colored
pencil is a good way to Indicate the

Popularity of Fabric Past Season In
dicates That It Will Be the
Standby for 1921.
Pnrls has a way of developing a
fashion which, seemingly unimportant
at Its Inception, often becomes a dom
inating feature of such Importance
that It develops Into a world-wide
movement During the last year there
has been gradually developing a
strong feeling In favor of crepe de
chine In preference to almost nny
other silk fabric. This simple and
not at all dresy material came al
most without herald as n medium Jor
developing seralilnssy toilets.
Several well-known makers, surh ns
Chanel, Miller, Socurs and Rolande.
emphasized crepe de chine In their
spring collections. Some of the larger
and perhaps more Important houses.
such ns Collet. Cherult and Madeleine
et Madeleine, while they showed
crepe de chine In Ihelr collecllons, did
not make an emphatic point of It. but
talked rather of more novelty fabrics.
But when the Parlslenne began to
buy her summer wardrobe It was
early manifested that crepe de chine
was to have a big vogue. Before mid
summer arrived it was not only the
crepe de 'chine dress, but It was the
xrepe de chine cape that carried the
palm for summer success. In the fall
collections of the houses who had
early success with crepe de chine, an
Increasing number of models In this
material was sho"vn. Crepe de chine
was used for foundations of dresses of
lace and metal novelties In preference
to satins. New fall mantles of tissues
and of furs began to be lined with
crepe de chine.
All of this Is most significant from
a standpoint of distribution. It looks
as If crepe de chine may be the big
seller In 1021, taking the place to no
small degree of voiles, taffetas and
GINGHAM CHECKS AND COLOR
Fabrics Quito Vivid in Tone and
Plaidings Are Fascinating in
Their Peculiar Way.
Ginghams are particularly good In
color and plaidings. The plain col
ored ones are quite vivid In tone and
those made of small or large checks
are fascinating In tbeir particular way.
Then there are cotton Japanese crepes,
which are quite inexpensive and which
have budded out this season In col
ors that have not been obtainable for
many seasons past. Linens are still
very scarce and expensive, but thej
can be bad by the fastidious by the
expenditure of large sums of money.
Dimities have Keen most marvelous
ly developed and they bid fair to be
one of the successful cottons of the
coming season. Already blouses made
from them are being shown over the
counters and many are the favorable
comments that are casually passed
about them. There Is a freshness'
about dimity which has its own charm
and brooks no rival. It does wash
well and Is guaranteed to keep its
color as well If not better than others
of the sheerer fabrics.

HOW TO MAKE A SMART BOW
Ribbon Should Be Wound Around Fin
gers or Over Nails Driven Into
Block of Wood.
Stylish bows are always tied and
are never fashioned from a series of
sewed loops. With a little practice un
skilled fingers may soon become profi
cient In the art of making smart bows
with both narrow and wide ribbon.
To make the bows the ribbon should
be wound around the two Index fin
gers of anotner person's hands as
many times as there are to be loops,
and then tied and knotted tightly In
the middle. This produces a dainty,
attractive bow. If no one Is there to
furnish the helping fingers, wind the
ribbon over two long wire nails which
have been hammered Into a block of
wood the required distance apart. It
Is Important that the loops be pulled
out loosely to produce the effect of a
rosette or bow. The length of the
loops, of course, will depend upon the
nse to wnicn the bows are to be put
and upon the width of the ribbon nsed.

USE-OF TINTS AND COLORS
Best Judgment Should Be Used in Se-
lecting Shad-3 That Suit the
A girl with delicate coloring and
transparent skin should choose tints,
rather than colors, lest she detract
from the dellcacy-of nature's endow
ments, whereas the girl with the clear
olive skin and sunklssed complexion
can wear the vivid and intense colors
that challenge her own.
Yellows, ochre and greens call for
a very clear skin, whereas reds and
Its derivatives lend a glo.v that Is
flattering as do also the warmer shades
The eternal blue and green color
scheme for the red-haired girl has at
last given way to a range of colors
In perfect harmony with or by con
trast, running the gamut from a pale
and faint pink to brilliant orange
which well offset the rare coloring of
hair, which the minority of us, alas,
are favored with.
As " ever and ever In matters of
taste and dress let us watch what
the Parlslenne does and what results
she achieves with her enviable gift
of savoir-faire In this field. Would
she wear an unbecoming color? 'Not
she. Yet she will, at times, flaunt
a color perhaps unsuitable to her gen
eral style, yet so daringly will she
wear this, so utterly regardless of
consequences, that her very Indiffer
ence becomes audaciousness and cre
ates what Is known as the bizarre.
But unless this Is done with super
skill, It creates a vulgar, unpleaslng
Impression and makes of the would-be-daring
one nn object of ridicule.
This, needless to say. Is well to avoid,
for the truly well-dressed person Is
the one who does not challenge nttecr
Oon, but holds It nevertheless.
