Parsons, Kansas. WhUe other peo
ple are talking about and watching
the weather, I am keeping my eyes
on the things right here and wonder
ing what will be the next step to help
to make this world better and who
will make it I have been watching
the Knights of Pythias and others,
and especially the Knights, and I
have seen something to encoujage me
and some of them to make me feci
like saying things which were never
put in a Sunday school quarterly and
lesson leaf, and don't think I am talk
ing out of my head.
When I took my pen in hand to
write to you last week, I was bask
ing for a few hours in the Chicago
sunshine, and after spending Sunday
and Monday there, I had" the pleasure
of getting away. No I spent Satur
day and Sunday in that one horse
town, leaving Sunday night on the
Wabash and in a bed car at that,
making it to the city of St. Louis.
Reaching the city early Monday
morning, I could hardly believe my
self, that Prof, and Mrs. Aaron E.
Malonc were there to receive me in
that fine automobile, car carriage. But
it was really true, and escorted me
right out to Poro college, the institu
tion that is doing so much for our
people. I heard a lecture there, and
had the pleasure of sending me some
breakfast into my breakfast reception
room. I did not go through the Poro
building, only going to the devotion
als, and then -out in the street
Prof. Aaron E. Malonc is one of
the big men ot tnts country, and a
man who is devoting his life to help
ing his people, and his wife is a great
factor in the development of our peo
ple. Wc all thank God for them and
for what they arc doing. Mrs. Malonc
has learned to regard the little things
and I suppose that is why she is the
great woman that she is. Great men
and women arc made up from little
things in life. I spent a whole day,
Monday, in St. Louis, leaving there
Monday night for the place where I
am right now.
You see at this time all eyes ate
turned on Kansas, because in a few
days from now the Supreme Lodge of
the Knights of Pythias will have
charge of Topeka, and they arc going
to be there in large numbers, so that
in order for me to be there, I made
the trip from Wilmington, N. C, to
this place to be in the grand lodge,
and was invited to do so by Grand
Chancellor S. H. Thompson, M. D.t
and Grand Worthy Counsellor, Mrs.
Norcne Davis, whose name I have
mentioned so much until you know it
by hearL Thomas Kennedy, the gen
eral, joined on the invitation. There
was Rev. T. W. Green, Jr., pastor of
Brown Chapel A. M. . church, he
had invited me to stop with him, and
when I pulled in and got off at the
bed car door, he was right there with
his automobile car carriage to tote me
to his home.
Rev. T. W. Green is a native of
Missouri, and took to his. education in
youth. He became one of the best
blacksmiths in the country, and was
Just taking in money when the Lord
put His hands on this young man and
commissioned him to tote the word.
He obeyed and entered the ministry.
Step by step he has been going up.
He joined the Kansas conference
under Bishop A. Grant,, and has made
his way to the best appointments in
the state, and is doing great things
right here in town. He has been here
7 years, and erected a church costing
$30,000, but he must -leave before he
can finish the debt, out believe me,
honey, he has gotten it down some.
Rev. Green, about fourteen years
ago, took Miss Bessie Turner from
the public schools of Kansas City,
Kas., where she was teaching, and
marched her out to the tune of Men
delssohn, and declared that he would
present to her. a kindergarten in
which she could be -the principal and
the other teacher alia He kept his
word, for there areThomas and Bes
sie, who have been started out in this
same kindergarten. They are work
ing together. Sher is a well trained
woman, and a help to her husband.
We are doing things these days.
But now to this grand lodge, be
lieve me, when I tell you it was a
great meeting and what surprised me
more than any other one thing, was
the request from , the mayor to be
permitted to lead the parade. There
were some talented men and -women
here, and I just shook and shook
hands with them and have not felt
like washing' my bands since, for fear
I lose some of that inspiration which
I received, f heard all the addresses
of welcome, and other things. For
instance I heard that great singer.
Miss Bessie Eads, whose home is
right here, bat who came into the
world via the Texas route, and has
sade good use of ier time since she
has been here, making ber raarfc.
With her- voice she has fortune andj
fame, and yon will find it to be true,
if yoocan only hear ier in some of
the recitals she is going to give.
After she got to the world arjd de
cided it was a good place to live,
she then made her way to Langston
(Okla.) University, and remained
there until she had finished. Next
found her in the musical department
of Western University, Quindaro,
Kas., and now she is finishing up in
music in the Southern University,
Los Angeles, Cal. She is one of the
talented young women who believes
in being useful. She works in the
church in California, and is ever
ready to serve her people. She is
some singer, one of the best in the
country. Another year will be spent
in music, and then she will take her
place, the place she has already won.
Music lovers now await fo welcome
her, an8 we extend her a hearty wel
come in advance. I do not know
just where she is going to give her
entertainments or recitals, but just
as soon as I learn, I will let you
I spoke of the supreme lodge. This
is going to be a great big meeting
and from all parts of the country
they will be there. Grand Chancellor
Thomas, and the Grand Counsellor,
Mrs. Davis, together with 'their com
mittees, are at work, and they arc
going to be prepared to entertain
this body of men and women. The
people are ready for them, the com
mittee is ready, and now let them
come. It will be the largest gather
ing of our people ever held in Kansas
and they will have some other great
things. I was proud to be in the
state. I am going down in Alabama
and will return. The world continues
I have had a great time here, and
now I would call your attention to
the National Baptist convention,
which is to meet in Chicago, 111.,
September 7, and I hope that you
have made up your mind that you
arc going to be there. Great speeches
are to be made and then there will
be the report from the Sunday School
Publishing Board, Dr. A. M. Town
send will tell you a few things abou
business. I could just take up a
whole paper telling j'ou about it. I
will have more to say in another ct
ter. I have just talked with Miss
Bessie Eads, and she says that she
is going to sing in Kansas City, per
haps in Chicago, New York and other
Look out for my other letter.

St Swithln Myth Disproved.
A record was kept from 1840 for
twenty years for the purpose of testing
the truth of the popular belief that If
rain fell on St. Swithln's day it would
rain for forty days after. The result
of this test shows that the greatest
number of rainy days had occurred In
these two decades In years when St.
Swithln's day was dry.

Saw Value of Fortifications.
John Zlska, a famous leader of the
Hussfte party In Bohemia, gained the
title of "father of the modern art of
fortlflcntlo'n." In 1420 he took np a
strong position near Prague on an emi
nence since known as Ziskaberg, and
held It with a few thousand men
against an army of 30,000.
Her Probable Intention.
Wright had been sent to the bank
with his weekly amount, and when he
returned he did not have his book.
His mother asked him where It was.
After quite a little hesitation he con
fided to her In a whisper, "Well,
mother, the girl took It and kept It. I
think she wanted to weigh It"
In rooms where the floor Is not cor
ered with a soft carpet the moving of
chairs Is often the cause of a good deal
of noise. The trouble may be reme
died In this way: From thick felt cut
small rounds to glue on to the feet of
the chairs. These can be secured from
an old hat or cut from an odd piece of
floor coTerlng. The chairs can then
be moved about quietly even on tha
415S; id ce.
