New Styles Cheap and Endurable.
Comfort and Beauty Combined.
UNTIL the large number of people who are never seen in churches cau.be assured that every
church in this vicinity will have a set of scats that will be clean, comfortable and inviting
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 hi'di
prices, shoddy goods and no terms. This barrier has been removed by the Church Supply Depart
ment of the National Baptist Publishing Board, which has presented the new style church seat (its
.own creation and its own make). These seats are constiucttd of the best grade of hardwood.
They are built by the best skilled mechanics and have proven to hi 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 condition, 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 L
Harding, pastor of the North Third Avenue Baptist Church, both of whom hive seated with new
style church seats; Rev. G. B. Taylor, pastor of the Second Baptist Church, corner Ste vens and De
luge Sts., Rev. Wm. Haynes. pastor of Sylvan Street Church, Shelby Avenue, who have installe d the
church pews, jt J j . J j u

MT. OLIVE SUNDAY SCHOOL
The officers and teachers of Mt
Olive Baptist Sunday School held a
special meeting at the residence of
Rev. and Mrs. Lewis, at 1025 Clinton
street, (Monday evening. The pur
pose of the meeting was to look into
and devise plans by" which the school
could be enlarged and made better,
This is one of the direct results of
the Sunday School Congress recently
held in New Orleans, and it seems
that the Mt. Olive Church is the first
to catch the inspiration. The Sunday
school is at present under the super
intendency of Mrs. Carrie Young, wno
is making wonderful success. The
teachers and officers present 'Monday
evening were Misses Annie F. Brame,
Clara Adams, Minnie Adams, Pearl
Brooks. Lovie Blc.ke, Esta Gordan,
Mrs. Eliza Wiley, Messrs. Cleve Hous
ton, Robert Moody, Henry A. Boyd,
Bennie Edwards, Leon Hurt, Burt
Jtnnly, T. J. Lewis, Elliott, Wm.
Young, John Bates, Misses Bertie Tid
well, Mary Dunson, Willa M. Hurt,
Mesdames Fannie Whatty, Carrie V.
Young and Minerva Bates. About ten
o'clock ices and other refreshments
were served. Word was given out
that similar meetings will be had
from time to time to bring about a
compact and uniform action and
purpose on the part of the Sunday
school workers of that church.
Mrs. Ward entertained the Carna
tion Olub at her residence, corner of
Biass street and Ewing avenue, on
Iond:iy afternoon. The President,
Mrs. II. M. Burns, presided at the
meeting. After the business hour
was over, half an hour was spent In
work. The ladies are doing some
very nice, work to put on exhibition
the night of the entertainment. At 5
o'clock he guests were invited into
the dining room, where an ice and
fruit course was served. The table
was beautifully decorated, its center
piece being cut flowers with batten
bitrg work. Those present were Mes
hmes H. M. Burns, M. S. Amos, W.
S. Rucker, M. T. Fowler, P. A. Simms,
Sidney Bond, H. Pullen, C. H. Duff.

THE APPROACHING NATIONAL
Possibly one of the most widely
known and more generally talked of
meetings held in the United States
each year is the National Baptist Con
vention, representing as it does the
largest number of religious people
identified with the race. The Conven
tion meets this year in Washington,
D. C. Dr. Morris , the president, has
already issued his annual letter, and
the program committee, which met.
about a month ago has arranged an ex
cellent program for the occasion. The
meeting will have a larger attendance
than ever before, for many reasons.
The first is that the Baptists seem to
be doing thorough work in their Con
vention. The second, however, appears
to he because it meets In the National
Capitol, where so many Negroes long
to go. And last, but not least, because
by going to the National Convention,
an oportunity is given to visit the
Jamestown Exposition on the return
trip. A larger delegation will go from
Nashville than on any previous occa
sion. Naturally all of the ministers
in this city attend these conventions.
This year it seems that they will be
joined by quite a few of the members
of their churches. One pastor stated
that practically all of his congregation
expected to go. Some of the members,
he said, would take their whole family
on this trip. As the time draws near
the interest seems to increase. The
meeting last year in Memphis drew
considerably on Nashville, but from
appearances now, the record will b'. .
broken this year.
Master William Henry McCauley, of
1805 1-2 State street, was entertained
at dinner last Sunday by his father
in honor of the eighth anniversary of
his birth. The young guests presented
a pretty scene seated around a table
beautifully decorated in green and
white, with a centerpiece holding a
cake decorated with roses, around
which burned eight candles. Those
present were little Misses Louise
Scruggs, Emma Harlen, the Misses
Wade, Masters Mansfield Douglas, Al
bert Scruggs and Elias-IIarlen.
MRS. HOFFMAN NO BETTER.
Wr. W. B. Reed, of 130!: Eleventh
avenue. South, received a telegram
from his daughter, Mrs. Lydia A. Hoff
man, last Tuesday, bringing him the
sad intelligence that she was no bet
ter. Mrs. Hoffman resides in St.
Louis, and has been indisposed for sev
eral months. Mr. Reed visited his
daughter recently, but his duties com
pelled him to return home. Mrs. Hoff
man has many friends in' this city
who are very anxious about her health.
Parallel with the progress in auto
mobile manufacture has been the in
creasing interest in machines for aeri
al navigation. There are to-day over
200 airships projected or in course of
construction in England alone. The
Ohio State Jonrnal (Columbus), which
furnishes this information, continues
with descriptions of some of the ap
In other lands the interest in air
navigation fairly rages. The new de
signs and principles of flight are very
interesting. One man proposes a "cy
clone" air-ship. The lifting power is
quite like the spiral motion of . a cy
clone, which is developed by "semi
spiral revolving tubes" which catch
the air and so confine and compress
it that there is a lifting power in let
ting it loose, quite like that of a cy
clone. Think of that riding through
the fenceless fields of air on an arti
The most extravagant idea in the
air-ship enterprise comes from New
York. There a man has conceived the
idea of propelling an air-ship by ex
plosions of gas. His adventure is
startling. He proposes a steel ship 150
feet long, 1,000-horse-power, weight
250 tons. This monster is to be
equipped with 1,000 or more air cham
bers, with trumpets attached, and by
explosions of gas through these, mo
tion is developed and direction se
cured. Isn't that a swoep of the in
ventive genius? Think of flying
through the air on the wings of an in
cessant explosion! Wherever one goes,
it would be thunder from a clear sky.
Another soit of motor for air-Hying
is the screw, very like that of a ship,
which is very like the Knabenshue
motor, except that the new arrange
ment of screw gives direction as well
is propelling force. And so the work
goes on over the world. There are,
probably, a ihousand air-ships build
ing to-day, and next year certainly one
of them will tly. It is going to be
very interesting to live for the next
year or two. To take a celestial jaunt
is to be one of the joys of the good
The lecture last niglu at First Bap
tist Church, Eighth avenue, North, by
Mrs. V. W. Broughton, though not so
largely attended, owing to the inclem
ency of the weather, was a master
ly effort. By her graphic description
in eloquent and charming strains of
her HNperiences and sights seen en
route, she carried her audience as far
ar- Rome, where, due to the lateness of
the hour, she was compelled to leave
them till Sunday night.
