Thr present century luix produced astrological geniuses, plncuolo
gists, cranks ami airmen, lint no man lias liwii found who is fool
enough to try to keep up with fashion for women's dress.
The Tulsa delegates and visitors to tho National Sunday School
Congiess at Muskogee lasl week wen; the only delegates there weal
ing budget advertising their home town. Tills, just will lead.
Now that the reading room is established let us have mole readers
for it. It is all free. Kvory Im- ami girl in the Hast 1-hid should
avail themselves of this opportunity (o acquire knowledge.
The Star should be lead in every Colored home in Tuba. That's
why we are trying to reach every home. If you know of a family
who do not get the Tuba Star, kindly give us their names and ad
dresses. The ministers of litis city, all broad-minded, liberal hearted
men, have shown themselves to be true lenders of I lie people. They
have taken the lead in bringing work lo this ofl'iee to help us to
help others as well its ourselves. The pieaehers of this city are
worthy of emulation.
We invite the renders of this paper to read I he advertisements ap
Iteming in these columns. Vou ean alwnvs save money if you plan
how to send it to the best advantage, anil you can always seiid il
to the IknsI advantage if you trade wilh those who solicit your trade
by advertising in your aKjr.
Take Xnle. Any successful merchant who litis the best of goods
for stile will advertise. It is the fellow who handles a worthless
lien of goods that is afraid to advertise.
Consistent advertising makes money for the advertiser and saes
money for his patrons.
The police are making determined efforts In heal lite public soiv
on Knsl Archer. Saturday a number of initiates of the houses in the

lo :;il days in jail. Al litis rale the police will soon clean up one
of the vilest vice losorls in the city and thus win the everlasting re
siecl ami gratitude of the ivseclable eople who have to pass along
If Ihe police is given the cooperation of till good citizens in curbing
vice unil keeping it in check, they can better do their duly.

The editor ami family at leaded the A. M. K. Chinch last Sunday
and heard an excellent sermon by Kev. .lohiisuu, pastor, on I'nily,
which was selected for his "Chiblieti's Hay" sermon.
timing other tilings, the pastor spoke of race patronage and point
ftl out Hie gteat necessity of Colored people, as much as possible,
spending their money among themselves. The .lew, the Italian, the
Scandinavian, the Servian, Ihe Ciieek ami fact every other race of
people, except II"' N'e-gio, he said, slick lo each other by keeping as
much as possible , all their money lo themselves. It is not pleasant
to sii ami hear our tare signlcil nut its Ihe only thoughtless race of
Ix'ople in Ibis resxct, bul Ihe truth of Ihe asset-linn is so evident
in our every day life thai we were forced to swallow il without
water. Our people do not think enough along this line. No rate
ever amounted to much while it was withoul wealth, and no care
has ever ye! acquired wealth before it fiisl produced successful bus
iness men of all kinds. Anil il is utterly impossible for the Negto in
iuericn lo thrive imleiH'iiileul of each oilier.
e must pi oil uco wealth lo hold our own anywhere and to do this
successfully we must eater lo our business men and our ptnlt-ssinunl
men In spending our money with lliem whenever it is convenient t
do so. We can do this without malice to anybody and with tin
bounded good to oursohos. The Aniicicun wliile man has pul a
limit lo even our business inleicourse with him. We ale dented
ecn for money many couwuiouifs and accoiuiuoilalioiis which an
liceh given ail kinds of I'oreigueis, and iu mam mercantile stoics
our patronage is not solicited though ihey accept out money.
til course il is natural for its to figuie ihe cost ami feign to spend
our it it ilt- whole we think we gel iiiikI for il. Cut we doli'l ligui
l.n enough. When we spt ml money wilh our own people it is in
i ul, iled among us ami we gel many teliii its from it. We help lo build
business enterprises for oittsehcs, whete our girls and boys ma Ik
cinphocil lo make a living for thetnsehes and lamilies. On the nlliei
hand, il we spend our money whole only wliile boys and while gtiN
.in' employed, whole mil ewu si Coloicd janitor is drawing a salaiy
we are pulling it out of mr reach wheie il will do us no good what
ewr and because of our short sighledness wc are making ourselves
Theiefore, when we siend money with our own business and pro
fcssiniial men, even if we pay mole for value received diieclly, w
ate then spending otn money wheie we gel most for it.
iiecenllv :i Coloted man opened a new confectionary and ice cretin,
parlor on North Oreenwooil. Mis patronage has always been Coloicd
ixsiple and will always be so. He deonils upon Colored ieop1e e
i lusiwh for his siipporl. He gnw a formal opening, inviting friend;
and aeiualutanees numbeiiiig ui'ore than two hundred. The invita
lions he sent on! wete printed iu a shop where tltete is not il single
Colored man or boy employed. This is ihe kind of inconsistency
that is holding the race back. This is the kind of short-sightedness
Kev. .lolnison referred to in his sermon last Sunday.
We need more preaching along (his line.
