JAMESTOWN EXPOSITION NOTES.
One of the most remarkable ex
hibits to be installed in the Negro De
partment is a friction-heater, of which
Mr. C. S. L. Bakery of Kansas, i3 the
inventor and patentee. In this won
derful machine, Mr, Baker has man
aged to multiply seven times over the
average efficiency of fltricity, pro
ducing heat by the lection v process
and has secured results almost unbe
lievable. He can, -with his invention,
heat a railway passenger coach with
out using an ounce of fuel, obtaining
the motive power necessary to run his
friction heater from the revolutions of
the axle of the trucks beneath the
coach; he can go into a new building,
when probably $6,000 worth of steam
pipes would ordinarily be required,
and heat the structure satisfactorily
by using only 80 feet of piping. He
will operate a coffee stand at the ex
position, where he will serve coffee
made by his friction-heater. Mr.
Baker's unique machine bids fair to
revolutionize existing methods of se
curing heat for public and private
Doctor Booker T. Washington, the
noted educator, has made public a
statement endorsing the Negro Exhib
it, and declariag himself as heartily
in sympathy with the effort of Chair
man Thomas J. Calloway and his en
ergetic assistants to place before tha
world a concrete demonstration of
the Negro' achievements in the many
fields of humam endeavor. He be
peaks for the enterprise the greatest
success, and eaya It will be a serious
mistake If our people fail to put
forth thir highest and best efforta to
make it all that it ehould be.
Mr. Clarenc Cameren White, direc
tor of the musical exhibit, will have as
a feature of his collection, a list of
the music teachers of the country, to
gether with the branches of music
taught, number of pupils and other
data showiag the extent of the devel
opment and aspiration of the Negro in
the musical arena.
Exhibits are oomiag In at a lively
rate, and the success of the exhibit is
no longer in doubt. The display will,
in all Vespects, reflect the highest de
gree of credit upon the Negro people.
Three new hotels for the accommo

The old adage, "A stitch in time
saves nine." contains more truth than
poetry. If a cold is not broken up
within two or three days at most, it
will run about two weeks in spite of
all known remedies.
Take note, then, of the very first
symptoms, and apply the proper rem
edies at once and your chances are as
good to break up the cold as it is pos
sible to make them. Avoid exposure
again for a day or two, if possible,
and you will be safe (until the next
change of weather occurs). When
you get chilly all over and begin to
sniffle and almost struggle for breath,
just begin at once and your tribula
tions need not last very long; but if
these slight colds are neglected they
soon take the form of a deepseated
cold and the next stage is liable to
be that ever present foe to the human
No other word in the language
stands for as much suffering, misery
and despair. It is the spectre .over
the rooftree whose greed for human
life is never satisfied. Its field is
the world and its victim the dwel
lers therein, and yet we open wide the
doors, windows and every possible
opening and invite consumption to be
our guest; we insist on his remaining
with us and no amount of persuasion
will induce us to drive him from our
midst. After he once crosses the thres
hold he stubbornly resists all efforts to
eject him, but by summoning an offi
cer named "common sense," he readily
apologizes and promptly makes his
exit. Watch as well as pray, for he
will return on the first opportunity.
"An ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure;" one ounce is really
worth ten pounds in this case. If we
form a vigilance committee and per
form our work diligently we will suc
ceed in routing the enemy. Of all the
diseases man is subject to, Consump
tion is the most deceptive. To such
an extent is this true that even those
who are of consumptive families and
have the taint in their blood, do not
suspect its earliest approaches, which
are so like the little coughs and cold3
that have frequently come and gone
that it is thought needless to worry
about or take quick action against
Fall cold3, winter colds, spring
colds, summer colds, all are danger
ous, especially thosy of the year 1907.
The Spring of this year (1907) Is quite
different from what we anticipated.
The germs of consumption work while
you wait, and laugh because some one
suggests you are going into consump
tion. Delays are dangerous; when
coughs and colds warn you, then act
quick. Shooting pains in the breast
mean lung trouble. Some do not cough
they simply weaken and lose flesh
day by day until the destroyer gets a

The item concerning the Home In
firmary and Hospital of this city, in
last week's issue has caused wide
spread discussion in several cities
about the size of Clarksville, where
there are colored physicians and busi
ness men. Numerous inquiries have
been received by the management,
and encouragement offered. Dr. Burt,
the managing physician, has been
very busy mailing photos and prospec
tus to the olored physicians through
out the country. Dr. Burt expects to
have Hon. Wm. T. Vernon, Register
of U. S. Treasury, to be the principal
attraction at the dedication.
The excitement over the charter
question has abated and Clark3ville
has settled down to its accustomed
habits. A new lease of life Is given
to the present administration for
some time, and then comes the pass
ing of the old. Whether colored
electors, will be equal to the occasion,
remains to be seen.
For several weeks and at the dif
ferent churches Interesting revivals

liance. This week Wesley Chapel

ficiating. Large and Increased at
tendance is noted and much good will
be the outcome.
