thev will not be seen inside a church. Many churches will supply this loner-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 churclns, 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 llaptist Publishing Board, which has presented the new style church seat (its
own creation and its own make). These seats are constructed of the best grade of hardwood.
They are built by the bost skilled mechanics and luve proven to hi the most comfortable ever of
fered at the prices. The terms on which they can be purchased are feo easy that any church, re
gardless of its financial condition, can secure a set of these by a small cash payment, have the scats
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 scats? References can be given to the Nashville churches by re
ferring them to Rev. L. Kirkpatrick, pastor of the St. John Jiaptist Church, Pearl St.; Rev. J. L
Harding, pastor of tho North Third Avenue Raptist Church, both of whom lv-ve seated with new
style church scats; Rev. G, 15. Tavlor. pastor of the Second Baptist Church, corner Stevens and De
luge Sts.; Rev. Ym. Ilaynes. pastor f Svlvan Street Church, Shelby Avenue, who have installed the
church pews. & J jt &

Well, the Baptist and Methodist ball
teams met Monday afternoon under
most threatening clouds. It looked
as if the rain was bent on washing
away the park, but Old Sol argued
the point. The game went on, yes,
on and on to the tune of

the Baptists had decided to treat all
alike, so Mr. Mason, the successor of
Mr. Wright, fared no better. Mr.
Bowman, the hurler for the Baptists,
minus the three rotten errors behind
him, would have shut out the Pedoes.
As the fumbles amused the select au-

of 17 to 4, with the Baptists on top.
So ended the annual athletic contest
between the two lanrest Necro nub-

The Methodist admirers were there

It was plainly noticed that there

nevertheless they went on and on and
up, though alone.

Veteran Goes in Ring With Bad Arm

This is the statement Fitz recently
made concerning his bout with John

Johnson hooked a left to the face and
then a hard left to the body. Some
more sparring followed. Fitz swung
his left to the face. The Negro sent
his left to the body and another one
to the wind. Bob hooked a left to
Jack's face. The Negro swung a left
to the chest. Fitz then hooked a
light left to the ear, and Johnson sent
a straight left to the face. Johnson
swung his left to the wind at the bell.

the spectators took the affair quietly
and matle no fuss. It was evident to
evetybody that Fitz was too aged to
have had a chance, and most of those
present were glad that he was;

Corbett at Ringside.
Young Corbett, who was one of
Fitz' seconds, said: "The ol,l man
tried once too often. Of course his
injured hand prevented him from do-
ins his best, but had it not been dis-
abled he would not have lasted over
Ave rounds. His work in the gym
greatly deceived the people. When I
saw him work I believed he would
stop the colored lad, but his age told
on him, his strength gave way and he
Johnson did not land any
terrific wallops on the old man.
TOMMY BURNS DOES NOT MIND
Tommy Burns has publicly de
hued that he is not disposed to
raise the color line any longer and
'hat if hnv Negro pugilist thinks he
has a claim on the heavyweight
cnamiHonsrui) be can come roivaia
with a challenge In the re-rr.ir way.
'.lack' Johnson intimated atter tne
lurns-Scuiiros fight that he would like
to take Tommys measure, aio no one
doulits that he will be heard from
without delay. It woul !, conse-
'mently. appear that the next Dig
Ight will take place between Burns
and Johnson, but the probabilities are
that several months will elapse, be-
fore the men can get together.
Johnson is the only big man who
is entitled to contest with Burns for
the heavy supremacy. All the oth-
ers have been given an opportunity
to show the public what they arc
worth. But as soon as Johnson s
name has been mentioned the color
barrier was raised.
A fight between Burns anl John-
son would be watched with great in
terest by sports all over the country,
but. of course, Burns will have te
meet others, and he will be a busy
pug for the next year or two. Burns,
it is understood, has a very poor
opinion of Johnson's real fighting
ability and he fully expects to make
short work of him if he ever gets 'him"
into a irng. Clipping.
