THE NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY,. MAY 24, 19A7.
CHURCH SEATS AND CHURCH PEWS f
New Styles Cheap and Endurable.
Comfort and Beauty Combined.
UNTIL the large number of people who are never seen in churches can be assured that every
church in this vicinity will have a set of seats that will be clean, comfortable and invitinir
they will not be seen inside a church. Many churches will supply this long-felt Want if
they could do so at prices and on terms within their reach, thus increasing their attendance draw
ing on the unusually large number of people who do not attend the churches, and which would evi
dently result in every service being crowded. A barrier has been in the way in the form of high
prices, shoddy goods and no terms. This barrier has been removed by the Church Supply Depart
ment of the National Baptist Publishing Hoard, which has presented the new style church seat (its
own creation and its own make). Thcse seats are constiucted of the best grade of hardwood
They are built by the best skilled mechanics and have proven to be the most comfortable ever of
fered at the prices. The terms on which they can be purchased are so easy that any church re
gardless of its financial condiln n. can secure a set of these by a small cash payment, have the seats
installed and pay the remainder in monthly or quarterly payments to suit their own financial con
dition. How long, with such inviting inducements offered, will it be, before every church in and
about Nashville will get a set of seats? References can be given to the Nashville churches by re
ferring them to Rev. L. Kirkpatrick, pastor of the St. John Baptist Church. Pearl St Rev J I
Harding, pastor of the North Third Avenue Baptist Church, both of whom h .ve seated with new
stvle church seats: Rev G. 15. Tavlor. oastor of the Ser.
luge Sts.; Rev. YY in Haynes.

A relaxation of the efforts on the
part of the peace officers in carrallim?
vagrants and those of a distasteful
disposition, has been quite noticeable
since the decision of Judge Hart of
the Davidson County Criminal Court
in declaring the law unconstitutional.
While the law was defective in many
respects, and eventually would have
given rise to conditions such as now
confront San Francisco; yet the above
named efforts of the last legislature
caused much scurrying to tall timbers
and many a sleepless night by those of
worthless propensities. Now some are
working who never "worked" before.
Many questions have arisen con
cerning the fines imposed and paid,
naturally the sequence is Will the
money be refunded? We ar enot well
versed in lore of the law, but it re
mains to be seen if the hearts of those
already designated as vagrants will be
gladdened by the merry tinkle of
coins that once were lost.
The Supreme Court of the United
States set a precedent last week in re
gards to shipment of liquors into dry
communities. While Rockwood, Car
thage and other smaller communities
of this state have passed very strin
gent laws as to the importation of
Kentucky's best and other famous
brands of malt, corn and rye it re
mains Clarksville's good luck to do
nothing at variance with the law as
interpreted by that most august law
body.. Clarksville is admittedly a dry
town and will be exceedingly so after
.Inly 1, with the exception of the lease
of life given the bibulous ones, through
the liberal interpretation of the in
terstate commerce act.
Covetousness is against, the divine
law, yet in this city and upon his own
property, which is partly submerged
by a pond, a man, through his skillful
manner in dispatching frogs of the
edible variety, 'which command fair
price, has incurred the envy of his
neighbors and has been gently request
ed to appear in court for using fire
arms within the city limits. After
hearing the evidence and noting the
fact that one of his own kindred could
be found at that time, disporting in
the pleasure of shooting at frogs on
the same waters, the presiding judge
promptly dismissed the case, with a
re-quest that a few frogs would be an
enjoyable addition to his table.
A frame cottage on Henry sreet, oc
cupied by Mrs. Caroline Parrish, was
discovered on fire early Wednesday
morning, and before the department
reached the scene, (he entire building
was enveloped in flames. Mrs. Par
rish succeeded in saving most of her
household goods. The property be
longed to Mr. J. W. rage and was ful
ly covered by insurance.

Wm. Jackson, one of the pioneer
members of the Cuban X-Giants, who
was compelled to retire from the dia

of a complication of diseases, is lying
home in New York critically ill. The
"Tribune" scribe wishes to call the at
tentions to those who are interested
in the game, to the fact that in their
many imitations as to what the white
teams do for a fellow-member of pro
fessional ball, they have overlooked
the act of giving "Jack" a benefit

FISK OUTBATTED GIANTS.
On Wednesday at Athletic Park the
Fisk baseball team walloned thp. pro
fessional Giants to the tune of 7 to 6.
At the outset the collece bovs werp. a
little nervous, but as the .game pro
gressed their nerve came to them and
they went after Mr. White's stalwarts
in nammer and tongs fashion.
there were some new faces on the
Giant team, but taken as a whole, the
team appeared to be about as stronar
last season. Sublett, who did the
slab work for the Giants, was touched
up pretty lively, but kent his hits well
scattered. The score does not do either
him or King, the Fisk twirler, credit,
for most of the runs were due to rank
errors on the part of the infield of
ootn teams. The uncertainty of thincs
made the game very interesting, and
even in the ninth inning a hair rais
ing rally by the Giants netted three
runs and came near winning the
game. The Fisk bovs. who arp nnlv
amateurs, and the most of them very
light weight, deserve great credit for
having the nerve to tackle the profes
sionals, much less leave their own
dunghill. They were very much elated
over their success, although victory
was not due to their all round playing,
but to Mr. King's batting, his home
run in the seventh bringing in the tal
lies that won the game.
