HOME FROM GEORGIA.
f After, an absence of a little more
than three weeks, Rev. C. H. Clark,
D. D.f pastor of Mt. Olive Baptist
Church, is home again. He filled his
pulpit last Sunday, much to the de
light of his large congregation, who
had given him a leave of absence to
make a trip to Savannah, Ga., where he
conducted a revival for Rev. Mr. Carr,
the pastor of the First African Bap
" :ist Church of that place. The meet-
ig was one of the best revivals held
the city in recent years; there were
conversions and other additions to
A caurch. The people " fay Dr,
Clark flattering receptions. He Is well
known there, having visited the cJtj'
during Dr. Love's time.
The First African Baptist Church ol
Savannah pulled off Its one hundred
and nineteenth anniversary while the
meeting was in progress. It is said
that this church is 125 years old, but
records only show 119 years, and dur
ing all that time have had but eight
pastors. There are 35 colored Baptist
churches in Savannah, which have an
enrolled membership of from 300 to
G.000. The church where Dr. Clark
held the meeting has 6,000 members.
A year or so ago it was conceded to
be the largest Protestant church in
When the National Negro Business
League met in Nashville in July, 1903,
the Negroes of this city organized a
local league here that bade fair to ac
complish great good, and it was evi
dent to the most casual observer that
the business among the race in this
city took on new lite as a result of
having come in contact with the lead
ing Negro business men from all parts
of the country. By listening to their
heart to heart talks they learned that
all men in business, regardless of avo
cation, have dark days along with
bright ones, and that it is only the man
with push and determination who suc
ceeds, and, alter all, some men who
work hard and persistently do fail; but
that falling down doesn't mean that one
should stay down, and that when he
gets up of his own accord the world
cheers him and lends him aid if he
asks for it. But if he stands alone
the cheers aie showered doublefold'.
The local league entertained their
guests in a way that reflected great
credit upon the Negroes of Nashville
js a whole, and every delegate spoke
in the highest terms of the manner in
which they had been entertained. The
local league made a brilliant start and
much good was accomplished, the re
sults of which are evident until this
time, but that the interests of Negro
business men are suffering now goes
without saying. Some of them remem
ber the local league and many inquir
ies are made daily as to whether or
not it is possible to resurrect this
There are in Nashville Negro men
engaged in business of various na
tures, but the kind predominating is
the grocery keepers. In one ward there
are seven grocery stores run by Ne
gro men, and all over the city they are
bobbing up constantly, and all of them
show signs of prosperity, but they
could better foster their enterprises if
they understood each other. In the
business league they could talk over
conditions and in many ways help
each other. Then men who desire to
have the league are becoming very
much concerned about the matter, and
are considering the advisability of tak
ing steps to reorganize the league.
MAKES VANDERBILT PAY.
Negro at Last Sells His Old-Cabin on
the Biltmore Estate.
After years of negotiation, George
W. Vanderbilt to-day purchased from
a negro named Collins a cabin and a
six-acre lot, says a special to the New
York Times, January 2G, which have
long spoiled the landscape effects
around Biltmore House.
Collins purchased his lot and cabin
twenty years ago for $2flO. When Mr.
Vanderbilt decided to build Biltmore
House landscape gardeners and engi
neers laid out an approach through
Collins's property. Mr. Vanderbilt of
fered Collins a large sum for the place.
Collins's lawyers told him to double
the price. Mr. Vanderbilt refused to
pay, but later agreed to Collins's
terms. Collins's lawyers told him to
double again, and this performance
was repeated several times.
The approach to Biltmore House
was built around Collins's property.
Collins still held out for a big sum.
Just how he was finally brought to
terms has not been announced.
Last Sunday Mr. Frederick Davis
Lowery, who resides on Sixth avenue,

THE SOUL OF A MAX.
Dax Hackley ' Wixstox.
I was the child of a sunnier clime
Where Nature her riches outpours,
When, the prey of the spoiler, the victim of crlm3,
The sport of the fates, and the world's pantomime,
I landed in chains on your shores.
Not mine was the will or the spirit obeyed,
For I came not a nation to ban,
And I brought neither riches nor tinsel displayed.
But only the soul of a man.
The onerous yoke of a bondman I wore;
Like the ox of the manger I fared;
Hard toils I endured, many sorrows I bore,
Unblessed and unhopeful, afflicted and sore,
The lot of dumb creatures I shared.
Not mine was the field I so faithfully tilled,
Not mine was the end or the plan,
Unheeding of books, and in learning unskiilpd
But within was the soul of a man.
And my groans and my pleading awakened the world.
As they rolled to each civilized shore,
And in pity the flag of the nation unfurled, '
When civilized manhood, a thunderbolt hurled,
Shook the earth. Then the red battle's roar!
The chains of my thraldom were rent in the fight,
And the red dawn of hope I could scan,
As I came from the darkness, the pain and the night
Came out of my bondage a man.
And the soul of a man, with its fetters destroyed,
And lost in the carnage and strife,
Forgetting the weights which so grievously cloyed.
With the God-given duties of manhood employed, i
Goes on in the battle of life.
I seek not to put down a nation by force;
Not the downfall of empires I plan;
And I claim not the meed of a coniaaror's course.
But only the rights of a nun.
PRESENTED WITH A CAKE.
The Tresurer of the Globe Publish
ing Company was the proud recipient
of one of the most beautifully decor
ated cakes that has been seen in the
city of Nashville. The presentation
was made by a charming young lady,
but the cake is said to have been made
by one of the best caterers In this part
of the country, who has done this to
show her true friendship for the Globe
and a member of the force. The cake
was decorated very artistically, being
adorned with the initials of the treas
urer. The reporters were not favored
with a slice, only the officers of the
company sharing the good fortune.
Damo Rumor has it that, the donor is
a member of Mt. Olive Baptist Church,
