CORRESPONDENT FOR THE
BROAD AX, HAS BEEN GREATLY
ENJOYING HIMSELF DOWN IN
TEXAS AND ARKANSAS.
Texarlrana. Arkansas-Texas. The
Baptists of Arkansas held their big
convention last week in Pine Bluff.
jand elected Rev. J. R. Jamison, of
Menefec, to succeed Dr. Elias Camp
Morris, of Helena, as nresident of the
convention, a thing which they had
not dreamed of. hut thev have elected
a good man. He is a graduate of
the Arkansas baptist college, and
served as first vice-president of the
convention. He has made a good
start, and I am of the opinion that
all of Arkansas Baptists will rally to
nis support ana maKe nis administra
tion a success. "If we are to have
men, we must make them," declared
Dr. Joseph A. Booker, "and this is a
case of putting our young men to the
Now that was a great big meeting
in many respects, and they had some
few visitors there, but it seemed that
all Arkansas turned out The conven
tion opened on Wednesday, and re
mained in session until last Sunday
night, and on Thursday they had
memorial services for Dr. E. C Mor
ris, which took up almost a whole
day. He had many friends and all
desired to have something to say.
The memorial address, however, was
delivered by the man who is to suc
ceed Dr. Morris as president of the
National Baptist convention, Dr. L. K.
Williams. of Chicaco. the pastor of
Olivet Bantist church. This intellec
tual giant came all the way from Chi
cago on invitation of the Morris fam
ily, and he delivered a great address.
In this address lie lost sight of him
self, and could only sec Dr. Morris
and Jesus Christ.
In the delivery of that wonderful
address. Dr. Williams went right into
the hearts of the people. He did not
make a campaign speech, hut deliv
ered an eulogy, for that is what he
came for. So many people declared
him to be the proper man. Now then
there came another candidate. Dr. r.
James Bryant, who declared that he
would be elected president of the Na
tional Baptist convention, and went
so far as to say that as sure as he was
standing there he was just that sure
tn he elected. I am sure that the
votes in December will take some of
the conceit out of him. There are
many Baptists aspiring for the posi
tion. Dr. Bryant reminds me so much
of the Kaiser. "God and Me." But
you watch all of this.
Among the other fellows who come
to the front and say that Go'd wants
them to lead the Baptists, is the Rev.
W. H. Moses, the wonderful dreamer,
nf New York. I think this must be
one of his dreams and a dream with
out God. For God would never make
a mistake like that. He knows the
street and number of all his saints,
and I think he would never go to New
York and pick out the man who has
been a miserable failure in everything
else and ask him to lead the Baptists'
of America. The man who tried to
tear the National Baptist convention
into threads and consign it to tne
devil so to speak, the man who thun

dered out against Dr. E. C. Morris
and all his followers; the man who
spoke out of his coat, shirt and collar
in Chicago trying to tear up the con
vention, and then tell that same man
to lead it. If God has such a thing in
mind, the men who make up the next
session of the National Baptist con
vention in St. Louis have not been
told that by God. and Rev. Moses will
have to continue to dream.
But let me tell you that 1 have
been moving some since I wrote to
you last week. I have been in this
state, and I am now on the line of
Texas and Arkansas, the first place
in this country to have a public hu
man barbecue, and they had another
one not long ago. A place that 1
think is next door to hell, yet there
arc some real good people down here
from both races, but then hell is to
play down here. They have sonic law
and order, and then they have some
of the other thing, and I believe that
there are men here who stand for
right men who stand for law, men
who believe in the punishment of
criminals. They have arrested, in
dicted and have for trial nine men
who took part in the last burning,
and the trial will be soon, and we arc
going to watch the result. I know
it will be hard to get a conviction,
yet strange things happen at times in
this world, and who knows but these
men may be convicted by a jury of
twelve white men, and I say white
men. for none other arc going to try
them. I will be on the watch wagon
and will tell you what happens to
them. The trial is to be next month.
I had the pleasure of seeing Bishop
I. X. Ross in Little Rock at Shorter
college. He was getting ready for
his conferences which arc now being
held, and he is going to do a big work
down here. His home is in Washing
ton. D. C. and was in company with
hi.s wife.. who is going the conference
rounds with him. The first confer
ence was held in Fort Smith, and they
arc going to hold one here this week.

FROM THE ORIENT
Dresses and Wraps Embroidered

Arab's Costume Afford Color Inspira
tions; Originality and Charm Ap
peal to Fashion Devotees.
Fashions are steadily becoming
more artistic than they have been for
many long years. Color, writes a
fashion correspondent In the New
York Tribune. Is at last beginning to
receive the attention which It de
serves. Designers In their enthusiasm
are searching In unusual and hitherto
unthnuglit-of places for inspiration.
A wave of Russian peasant art has
Just swept the country. Before that
there wns the Egyptian Invasion. a
well as the Chinese, the Japanese and
the Spanish Influence.
Now something new has appeared
in Paris In the form of dresses and
wraps embroidered by Algerian na
tive workers In designs taken from the
Orient. These, dresses have been put
in the market by several designers.

If one is seeking color inspiration
a wonderful place to find It Is In the
Arab's costume. The brilliant colors
that these dark-skinned people love
and wear so well are mellowed by the
scorching African sun until they have
become fabrics of rare beauty. Even
the tents of these desert people are
striped In hold colors which have been
mellowed by time and the elements
to unusual and beautiful tones.
There are few women, no matter
how great their love of color, who

Arab's garb, hut, used with discretion,
charming effects may be achieved.
For instance, an old Ivory tint that
combines beautifully with blue a
shade of blue frequently seen in a
faded cotton fabric that. In Its origi

Then there are the beautiful tawny

red and purple.

It is round across the hack and to the

the front of the frock.
The round collar attached to a

article. Another good number Is the

PANEL BELOW THE HEMLINE
Whether the beaded robe be sim
ple or as decorative as the model
illustrated above, a ribbon sash
gives a longer line, emphasizing tha
vogue for the panel below the
hemline. This girdle of moire rib
bon is simply tied with ends of un
even lengths. Sashes have come into
their own again, particularly for the
straight-line frock which requires this
additional touch to create the uneven
nets of the hem, so desirable in cos
tumes this season.
AMONG NEW EVENING CLOAKS
Late Fashions Are Gorgeous in Mate
rial and Decorative in Outline;
Collars Are Higher.
Very gorgeous, are the new evening
,-lonks. Corgcous in material and curi
ously decorative In outline. The Idea
'if the top of a garment being tight
and the loner r-art very full Is gaining
favor every day. according to a fashion
authority In the Roston Globe. We
find it exploited In conts, wraps and
Hut It Is In the world ot evening man
tles that we find this Idea most prom
inent. Over the shoulders the rich ma
terials are drawn so tight that they
mold the form; then perhaps half
way down there comes a sudden
flare. It Is a picturesque fashion hut
not altogether comfortable because the
sight top confines the arms, still It Is
the "latest thing" and the chic Pari
dennes look upon it with eyes of favor.
A beautiful mantle was a symphony
in copper tints and rich browns. The
shaped top was literally covered with
-opper and dull gold embroideries and
the red-brown chiffon velvet which
formed the gigantic flounce was set
bito thee embroideries and at the
tower edge caught In to form a sort of
puff. Then there was a regal looking
collar of dark mink and linings of
copper-red satin. This was a wonder
ful model, a riot of autumnal tints,
and It represents everything that Is
new In the world of fashion.

THE LARGE HAT IS DOOMED
Broad, Flapping Headgear Must Qlvs
Way to That of Medium and
. the Small Size.
Everywhere one hears, a great deal
ibout the large hat". In fact, manufac
turers have plaeed so much Importance
on w-lde-hrlmmeil models that women
are led to believe that the small hat
Is about to pass from fashion. This
however. Is not true, says a fashion
writer In the New York Tribune. In
fact, the small hat will be far In the
tend as soon as the time comes to wear
coats with high, muffling collars.
One logical reason for the present
popularity of the wlde-brlmmed type
Is that It Is difficult to get away from
the midsummer models that so be
comingly shndowed the face. Another
Is the "fact that the prevailing sil
houette always Influences the shape "j
of hats. Long skirts require broad
brimmed models, while short skirts re
quire smaller ones. The momentary
razp for large hats might be attributed '
to the sudden popularity of long skirts.
nresMnakers already feel that they
cannot make the very long skirt a per
manent fashion. Therefore the large
hat must give way to those of medium
and small sires.
