Sleeves open at the top to reveal

In one frock. It was created by Lan
vin for a well-known French actress
to wear in a recent production. The
material ued i a soft black satin.
This is only one of the many indica
tions that the more lustrous materials
will vie with dull Mlks this autumn.
Perhaps they will surpass them in
popular favor. It is too early to know
but it Is certainly fe to predict that
they will be used extensively. Many
handsome models of shiny Hks will

will then remain for women to take

the public will have tired to a great
extent of the dull nnih and the crepy

Lanvin always has been an orig
inator of niot interesting embroid
eries. Recently she has been work
ing out some extraordinary effects
through entirely new means. For In
stance, she uses tinsel tinted in lovely
color tones and applies It to the frock
to give the effect of embroidered
Some New Trimming Effects.
In a charming suit this effect has
been achieved through the ue of the
white braid and blue bead. One
cannot Imagine this maker departing
entirely from embroideries or em
broidered effect, as work of this ort
has been raised to the eminence of a
fine art In her work rooms and no
amount of study and effort spared to
produce the bet in this line.
Children, too. have their fashions
nowadays and their clothes are re
ceiving an amount of study and at
tention which would have atonijhed
makers of children's clothes a few
years ago. Great designers have dis
covered the artMic possibilities that
lie in these little garments. Conse
quently they are infinitely more at
tractive than In the days when they
did not differ from the dresses of their
elders and when little babies' dresses
were miniature duplicates of their
mothers frocks, or even within the
last decade, when clothes for little
people were Just plain and useful.
Of course, the best children's clothes
are simple. It is impossible to overdo
simplicity in them. And no matter
how simple, they may have some
special Interest of design or trimming,
as do those of grownups.
We have In great abundance the
frills, flounces and fichus of a hun
dred vears ago in dresses for future
debutantes but the very smartest
thing Is the chemise dress of white

Huntsille, Ala. Ah I sit down to
write to you today my mind goes back
to the days of William H. CoHncill.one
of the greatest educators this world
ha known. He has lived well in his
la and time and has passed out, but
there are thousands left behind to sing
his praies. and to let those who are
coming along know that he once lived.
It wa often said that when Dr.
Councill pn-e.l out it would be hard to
au.l one to fill bU place, and I am of
the opinion that tai i about true, and
I regret to ee this-. Normal was at one
time at the top. but I do not know what
plare it occupies now. It is down in
the scale, and President Walter S. Bu
chanan, has resigned and gone into
other busine.-. using Normal as a step
ping stone. He will some day rank
among the wealthy men of our country
and nice, and in this he has now my
congratulation-. Build well today, lay
ing a foundation upon which your build
ing will stand.
1 have been moving some since I
wrote to you the la-t time and I have
ju.t a few things 1 would like to say
and when I have said them I will bring
this letter to a stop. Will you listen
to me for just a little while and see
what I hae to say? I had made it to
Louisville. Ky., when 1 wrote to you
the last time and this letter you have
read, I am sure, and I will be iuTopeka,
Kansas when you read this letter or
will be on my way from there. The
reading will be the same, it matters not
where 1 am. for I am one of the mot
readingest men in this country. I
should have said one of the most niov
inget and ridingest men in America,
and I don't care who knows it. for
if you are reading after me you have
long since decided that I do some go
ing. Well, it was a nice thing to spend
a little time in eomjHUiy with William
II. Steward and his family, ami to get
a couple of chickens in a box fixed up
by Mr.-. Carolyn Blanton. and ride to
Nashville, eating chicken as I rode. I
enjoyed thi so very much and had the
pleasure of meeting some people riding
Now let u turn attention to Nash
ville. I reached the city, and went out
to see my good friend and brother Dr.
Julian C. Caldwell, a minister and a
Christian gentleman. Caldwell has
made a place for himself in the African
Methodist Episcopal church. He has
put on the map the Allen Christian En
deavor, and it is up to Iter. S. P. Morris
to try to keep it where this young man
put it. He is trying, and let us pray that
he will pull up in the future. We are
all looking forward to 1922, when we
hope to see Dr. Caldwell consecrated
as one of the bishops of the A. M. E.
church, and I am of the opinion that
it is going to be done. He has won his
way. but I am not going to take up
time to talk about it now. Mrs. Cald
well has had a nervous breakdown, but
I am glad to report to you that she is
improving, and let us all hope and pray
that she will soon be herself again. She
was busy at home.
I stepped across the street from Dr.
Caldwell's, had a heart to heart talk
with Dr. and Mrs. E. W. D. Isaac, of
the National B. Y. P. I. Board. Wc
regretted and lamented over the death
of Dr. C. T. Walker, and then we talked
about the approaching National Baptist
convention, of which Dr. Isaac is an im
portant factor. He has had much to
do with saving our work and keeping it
in tack, and his worth to the denomina
tion cannot be estimated.
Next found me in lcd, and bright
and early Sunday morning there was a
call from that most eloquent pulpit
orator and scholarly preacher, Dr. W.S.
Ellington, inviting me to preach for
him Sunday morning, and after prayer
and hesitation, I accoptcd the invita
tion and went to the stable, and had
my trunk toted over to Dr. Hale's place,
known as the Millie Hale hospital, and
Dr. Madison toted me over to the
church in his automobile carriage car.

ing. Dr. Hale came in, and remained
through the sermon, in fact he waited
to tote rae over to his place for dinner,
to remain over night. The invitation
wa accepted, and wo went over. The
table was ladened with chicken and
other good things. Believe me, I got
on the outside of just so much and
stopped, but I have seen the time that
I would have put three times that
much on the inside. But I am going
slow and getting down trying to get
rid of them bugs that are trying to fix
me to the extent that the worms can
get fat off of ray carcas by eating three
or four meals a day. But you see Dr.
George C. Hall, and Dr. II. W. Conrad
have fooled them telling them that they
were liars, and I am still here.
After the dinner, Dr. Hale invited me
to join him and his family in a. cool off
ride, and of course I accepted. We
rode for three hours or more, getting
back to the Millie Hale hospital there
was a calling waiting for him. He
said that we could make it out there
and get back in time for church, and
I accepted the invitation, and it made
me feel like I was some doctor too.
We got out there, and there was a man
coming up the road saying "Are you
coming after me, doctor? Come right
on." He led the way to the house.
We thought he was only drunk, but
found that he had been stabbed by an
other man in two places. Dr. Hale in a
few minutes fixed him and he was on
his way rejoicing. He is one more fixer.
Dr. J. II. nale is one of the greatest
surgeons in this country, and wc will all
have to give it to him. About a week
ago, about 11:30 at night the police
rushed into the Millie Halo Hospital
one J. B. Batte, the son of the late Prof.
J. B. Batte. He was in a very serious
condition. Now you will have to know
what all this is, for I do not, but I do
know his stomach was hanging out.
The record is:
"An incised wound was made begin
ning at'lower part of the stcrbum cut
ting two ribs and stomach in two. The
transverse colon was sovcrcd, the con
tents of the stomach being poured into
peritoneal cavity. A partial gastrectomy
was done immediately, with a lateral
anastiomosis. There were also deep
wounds of the neck, a lacerated wound
in the lungs, side and head. All were
repaired, the entire operation being
completed in forty minutes. Patient
was put to bed and in five days after
wards patient was out of danger, and
is now rapidly recovering." I am told
that Dr. Hale took out eight inches of
intestines. Now this is wonderful. I
am now proud of Dr. Hale. This case
has its place in history. He will shine
Sunday night I had the pleasure of
preaching for the Rev. Dr. J. T. Brown,
of Spruce Street Baptist church. He is
doing a great big work there. But I
must not forget to tell you that on my
way back to the stable, I had the pleas
ure of seeing Dr. K. H.Boyd, of the Na
tional Baptist-Boyd Publishing Board.
He is in bad health. Let us all pray
that he may be restored to health, for
he is not just yet ripe for the Kingdom,
and I want that this venerable worker
shall make it into the kingdom of
heaven. Just as soon as that matter is
straight with the National Baptist
convention, then it will be better for
Speaking of the National Baptist
convention, they have decided to erect
one of the largest no, I mean the larg
est and most complete publishing plants
in America owned and operated by our
people. I can see no reason why this
cannot be done, for they have the num
ber and then they have the money.
Dr. A. M. Townscnd is just a leader of
men, and one of the greatest leaders in
America. He is a Sunday school man
from his heart.
I shall have more to say to you next
week. I am going to tell you about
other things. I am not well as I write
this week, but hope that time will bring
about improvements. Good bye.
