National Health Week Among ColortA People
(waTTlul FoR THE TIMES.)
A popular meeting was had in thi
colored Methodist church of Ms.nni
in which the subject of sanitation wa
discussed by several speakers. Thi
meeting was gotten up by Rev. A. W
Timmons, pastor of the Trinity A. M
E. church with the assistance of thi
Colored Women Federation Club.
The idea of having the colored peoplh
clean-up their premises in the entir
negro section of the town was fully dis
cussed. The high death rate among
colored people in the Southern State
is alarming and the ieaders and stu
dents of our livin. .onditions believ(
that this high deat!A rate is due to tbi
surroundings of our people, ignoranc
of the laws of sanitation and hygiene
and filthy environments.
One of the leading speakers at th(
popular meeting was Mr. Charltot
DuRant, president of the Home Bani
and Trust Co. Mr. DuRant pointet
out several ways by which people ma]
live long lives, and urged our peopli
to co-operate In the movement of hav

When it I Darkest.
By his own observations on *U'

English scientist, has proved that we
are scientifically correct when we say
that it is "always darkest just before
dawn." He has found that before
dawn a great darkness invariab:7

which were plainly observable during
the previous hours of the night are

sometimes induced by the dense oao
