MRS. NOAH DAVIS THOMPSON
From the pen of a Los Angeles
woman, Eloise Bibb Thompson,
comes the unusual drama staged by
Frank Egan at the Walker Audi
torium, which today begins its sec
ond week. Played by a company of
colored actors of experience, "Afri
canus" has proved to be an offering
unique to the Los Angeles stage.
From the Evening Express, Los An
Mrs. Thompson is the wife of our
former townsman, CoL Noah D.
M. T. Bailey, president, The Bailey
Realty Co., and manager The Milton
Mercantile Agency, 3683 South State
street, spent a busy week out of the
city especially at Evanston, Wauke-
gan and Lake Forest where she was
in conference with business men of
that section on topics of vital import
ance to the Race.
Memphis, Tenn. It has been a long
time since I sent you a letter from
this place, but I must let you have a
line now, and say to you that I am
well and hope when these few lines
come to hand they may find you the
same. No I am not well, but Dr. G.
C Hall, and Dr. H. W. Conrad have
gotten me in such shape until I feel
like I could whip an elephant, but it
is all feeling.
I am here today the guest of that
wonderful musical genius, Miss L. E.
Campbell, who is a teacher in the
high school, and the organist of the
National Baptist Sunday School and
B. Y. P. U. Congress which will meet
in June in the city of New Orleans. I
'am proud to say to you that Miss
Campbell composes much music, and
it is put in books used by the Con
gress.. Did you know that we had
such a genius in the race? If you did
not then I am proud to tell you about
her. You did not know her, because
she is modest, and unless you ac
tually stumbled up on her or was told
by some one that that is Miss L. E.
Campbell you would never know her.
God is doing wonderful things for us
and will continue -to do them if we
will only let Him.
Reaching Memphis, I went to see
Dr. E. C Morris, Helena, Ark., and
found that he was near the door of
death, to the extent that he could just
feel the hands of C T. Walker, F. L.
Lights, A. Barbour, and others of
the National Baptist convention who
have gone ahead of him near. But
the Lord has returned'him to us for
sometime to come, for I believe that
the Lord wants him to carry out some
work he has begun, the erection of
the publishing house under Dr. A. M.
Townsend, the business genius of the
race. This is going to happen, and
right now Dr. Townsend is on the
wing getting things in shape, and
raising some money from the Bap
tists to start the building. It is going
to happen, and this you may believe.
I reached Helena and found that
Dr. Morris was sitting up, and your
readers will be delighted to know
this. Many of them did not know
that he was sick, and now that he is
getting better, they will write to him
expressing their joy and pleasure at
I returned to the city, and found
that they had been holding a business
meeting at the Metropolitan Baptist
church, and the new pastor, Dr. J. T.
Brown presided. Things had been a
little warm, but not hot like it was
last November, where the brethren
and sistrens lost sight of the church
militant and the church triumph and
mingled ringer nails, umbrellas and
other things with each others whis
kers and hair. One sister broke an
umbrella over the head of a deacon
and he exclaimed, "I believe I have
reached heben at last" He was mis
taken forhe was still down here on
earth full of the devil's holy water.
But I am not to talk about church
fights now, but will turn my attention
to some other things. For I have
been going some since I wrote you
I returned to Memphis, visited the
high school, and then one of the
other schools, visited Henderson's
business college, and I am here to
tell you that this young man is doing
a great work. I would recommend
his business college to any one seek
ing a business course. It is not mere
in name, but he has purchased a lot
or two, erected a real business col
lege, and has in it everything that
goes to train business people, from a
bank up or down. When they get a
diploma from this school they are
ready for business.
Then I made it over to Nashville,
and found that Dr. Hale had sent two
automobiles over to meet me and
escort me to the Millie E. Hale hos
pital where I was to remain his guest
during my stay in town. It is nice
to be where you can have doctors
and nurses all the time, and this was
my case while there. I have told you
about this wonderful character from
time to time and will not talk about
him this week.
I had an invitation from President
W. J. Hale, of the State SofTool to
drop out and look the student body
over, and make a few remarks, and
I made it there, you will believe me
honey. He came himself in his auto
mobile car carriage for me, and toted
me out to the school, and by the
way, he' is the proud father of a son.
This little fellow has just reached this
earth and he is here to stay. I wish
you could just see this educator smile.
I wanted to congratulate him on the
arrival of his heir to the throne, and

' Julius F. Taylor, 6206 Elizabeth
street Phoae Weatworth 2597,
I said, "Congratulatus, rompituril, in
dicaturoliseL" I don't know whether
he understood me or not, for I did
not know what I was saying, but he
is one of the greatest educators in
this country and a man well trained
for his work. I am proud of him.
I believe in my soul that this is
taking the first place of state schools
in this country, and all due to the
fact that there is a man at the head.
They have secured the best avail
able men and women on the faculty,
I think it is called, and then they are
turning out the work. I tell you this
man is a man for the people and right
with the people. You can reach him
and he can teach you. He has been
educated right to the people, and then
he stands erect and looks every man
in the face and says "Here is a man."
We need such men everywhere, and
I am proud to say that in him we
have what we need. They are putting
up some new buildings there, and the
state is just investing money in brains.
If you are in Tennessee get in line.
I will not be able to tell you the
names of all the teachers I met there.
I have also visited Lane college,
and believe me that is another school
that is doing some great work. At
the head of this school is Prof. James
F. Lane, who has taken the time to
become educated and right by his
side is his wife, a woman of much
training. She is the secretary, and
believe me honey she is a good one.
I reached the town at 1:38 and there
was some one to meet me at that
hour in the night and toted me to the
I tell you it is a great thing to come
in touch with real educated people.
They have a fine student body there,
and both are among our readers. I
think I will some day devote a whole
letter to Lane college, for I think it
is deserving. I had the pleasure of
coming in touch with Bishop Isaac
Lane, the real founder of the school,
and the senior bishop of the C M. E.
church. He is active in mind and
body, and rendering a great service
to his race. It is real pleasure to
come in touch with these noble char
I have made it away from there,
and you see I am back in Memphis,
but will leave here tomorrow for

Are you getting ready to attend the

board of the National Baptist conven
tion will meet at Tuskegee at this
time, and the National Negro Press
Association will be in session then.
It will be a great time to visit Tuske
gee Institute, and I hope you have
decided to be there. A letter from
Prof. Martin A. Menafee, Denmark,
S. C, informs me that he is going
to be on hand, and declares that I
must be there. Of course I am going
to be there because Dr. Booker T.
Washington was a friend to us all,
and we should be sure to meet Elm
or take advantage of every oppor
tunity to pay a tribute to him. I shall
have more to say another time.
God bless you. A letter sent care

Living Room Important
A living room of all rooms In tha
home Is the most Important and one
writer says: "Furnishing a living
room Is like starting out on a voyage
of discovery." This room should be
furnished with thought for the need
and comfort of each Individual mem
ber of the family. Give to the master
of the household a comfortable fireside
chair, a table beside that chair on
which he can place a paper, magazine,
book or any other things that he may
wish there; give him his own reading
lamp and a comfortable stool In front
of his chair.

Love's Tragic Path.
When I was sixteen I met a hand
some youth two years my senior. I
cared for him and, apparently, he
cared for me. At this age I was very
sensitive and shed tears over every
little thing, and once in a while over
things he said. For my birthday I
received a package which I knew was
from him because of his handwriting.
I ran to my room to open it and when
I did, what did I behold but an onloa

with a card saying "Now cry." I did,
