Baptisfs are now turning their atten

"be the meeting xi the National Bap
iist convention September 7 in Chi
cago, III, with the -Olivet Baptist
:church, p which the Rev. L. C Wil-
tiams is oasior.
'Already they have arranged the
program, and Dr. P.- James Bryant
has been selected' for the Friday night
speaker. .He is the son of thunder
from Atlanta, 'Ga., and I need not
tell you that they are going to have
one trreat speech, because just to say
that Dr. Bryant is the speaker is
sufficient to say that. He is one of
the most spealdngest men in the
country j and -when he is throughjfQU
will haver some good information.
The" convention decided to stay in
touch with Dr. R. H. Boyd, that is
to say the Board representing the
convention reached that decision, and
authorized the Sunday Schdol Pub
lishing Board to do so. I don't
know whether or not you. know just
wtfiat this means, but 1 am sure mat
I am" posted "ori the meaning, and the
limb of the law will have to let you
I told you that I was going o be
in Kansas City during this big meet

dollar that I got here and ready to
get away since the meeting is over.
It was a pleasure for me to .have left
Wilberforce in company with Dr.
G. A. Edwards, president of Kittrell
Colleze. and believe me, darling, that
it is a great thing to be able to ride
with a college president I have just
been hobnobbinsr with them educated
men until I am believing that I am
some pumpkins myself.
From Wilberforce, we made it to
Chicago, III., where I found that they
were looking for me in a way. With
Dr.. Edwards, we went to the home
of Charles Stewart, but he was out
of town, and his wife had gone to
a meeting, but we were received by
'Charles Stewart, Jr., who is just a
block off the old chip. He bade us
welcome, and proceeded in the ab
sence of his mother to gJ to the
store, and cet thinsts ready for some
thing to eat, for he was atraia mat

for I am told that she is from Texas.
She was glad to welcome into lfer
home the 'friends of .her husband and
whenshe told us to be at home, I
at once pulled off my shoes. I
heard some one say something about
fumigating. Dr. Edwards for rea
sons unknown to me asked permis
sion of the lady to raise the windows.
t am sorrv that I am without a bad
cold," he said. To save me I could
not understand why he wantca a Dao.

my shoes for his headache was eared.
Tt -ori not lone before it was an
nounced that dinner was Teady and I
was ready, too, with a fnll fledged
appetite. I sent all them gooa inings
into my eternity for the reception of
the good and then we went out in
the street I made so much noise,
until I got lost from the others and
went on my way rejoicing. This
was not the first time that I have
been in Chicago and I was just as
independent as a hog- on ice. I got
in my sleep that night,' and the next
morning President John A. Gregg
of Wilberforce University joined us,
and it was indeed a pleasure to have
been with this big educator. Just
imagine that you see me going dbwn
the street with two college presi
dents.' Do you blanie me for having
a big head?
On the street cars I talked so all
