THE NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY, AUGUST 16, 1S07.
FLAG AND DOLL DRILL.
About 200 people witnessed one of
the best juvenile concerts given in
Nashville recently. The program was
rendered at the Spruce Street Baptist
Church Mondr.y night, August 21. The
principal numbers on the program,
and possibly the most attractive ones,
were the two drills, the flag drill by
the larger girls and the doll drill by
the little tots. They showed excep
tional training and executed orders in
the formation of the drill with pre
ciseness and c-se. Miss ,Tennie Dun
son was the manager of the concert
and much credit is due her for the
showing made. She had selected chil
dren from all churches and all parts
of the citv, thus drawing upon a large
number of visitors who spent the
evening very pleasantly. Some spe
cial numbers, recitatiaons and solos
rial numbers, recitations and solos
were also rendered pleasingly. The
affair was a financial success.

SUDDENLY CmLLED HOME.
Miss Laura S. Harris, of Memphis,
who has been spending some time
visiting in Chattanooga and on Look
out Mountain since the adjourning of
the Baptist State Convention, arrived
in the city Saturday Morning last to
spend a few days as the guest of Mrs.
Lillie M. DeWcfs, of 1027 Ament
ftreet. Tuesday Miss Harris had the
misfortune to receive the sad intelli
gence of the death of her younger
brother, who had been ill only a short
time. She had been informed as to his
illness, but it was not known that he
was aproaching the brink of eternity,
and therefore her people did not urge
her to cut short her vacation and re
turn home immedi?tely, as they were
desirious of her finishing her stay as
she had planned.
Miss Harris left Tuesday night for
home. She was accompanied to the
station by a number of young people
who tried to make her as comfortable
as possible preparatory to taking heir
leave on the sad journey.

orderly conduct. He made no com
plaint when the key of the cell door
was turned upon him and the police

wrong with the man until Sunday
morning, when he was found dead.
The lady with whom Mr. Peyton
boarded declares that he was not un
der the infulence of liquor on the day
of his arrest. She says he was subject
to fits and on Saturday he seemed de
mented and spent a part of the time In
in praying and crying. She thinks he
he died in a fit.

DEATH CLAIMS NOBLE
Mrs. Adelia Mills, the Popular Jeffer
son Street Grocer, Passed Away
Last Saturday Night Fu
neral at St. John A.
M. E. Church.
The many friends of 'Mrs. Adelia
Mills will miss her pleasant smiles,
for on last Saturday night she
breathed her last at her home, 1806
Jefferson street. Her husband, son
and daughter-in-law and a few friends
were by her side during the last mo
ments, and looked on eagerly as the
soul took its flight to the unknown be
yond. The funeral services were conducted
at St. John A. M. E. Church, Monday
afternoon at 2 o'clock, by the pastor,
Dr. T. W. Haigler, assisted by Revs.
Felix Mays and W. S. Ellington. Each
speaker said words of high praise con
cerning the life of Mrs. Mills, which
seemed to impress the large audience
The obituary read by Dr. Haigler
sets forth a life that was beautiful and
worthy of emulation.
Mrs. Adelia Mills was born in Au
gusta, Ky September 20, 18G2. She
was the daughter of Richard and Har
riet Bean, and lived happily In the
home of her girlhood until she was
sixteen years of age, when death called
her mother from labor to reward. A
short time after this sad occurrence,
Adelia went to Cincinnati to live with
relatives. It was in that city that she
met Mr. Frank Mills, and they were
married in 1885. They lived happily
together twenty-two years. Last Sat
urday night at the hour of 12, the lov
ing tie that bound their hearts as one
was severed, and the spirit of Adelia
Mill3 went to meet its Maker, the God
who giveth and who taketh away at
Mrs. Adelia Mills was a Christian
woman. Her church and its interests
were a part of her daily life. She was
always a help to the weak and a sup
port to the poor and needy and sick
and afflicted. She had a kind word,
an encouraging word, a message of
love for every one with whom she
came in contact. Surely a good and
noble woman has fought the good
fight, won the victory, and Id now at
'he throne of our Maker.
Next to her religion Mrs. Mills
placed her family circle. She was a
devoted wife and loving mother.
True as the . needle which points to
the North Pole was she to everything
that was of worth to her domestic in
terests. Two children were born to Mr. and
Mrs. Mills, William Franklin and
Howard Clio; the latter and her hus
band survive her. In conversation
with Mrs. Childress, a dear friend and
neighbor, she said that she had two
experiences during her sickness, and
felt that there was something she had
not given up. After deliberating upon
the matter she reached the conclusion
that It was her boy she was clinging
to. She prayed to God to relieve her
mind of him, which he did. She was
conscious of her death. Every time
she closed her eyes she would see
them arranging for her funeral and
she asked the Lord to remove that
from her mind, and her prayer was
answered. On Tuesday of last week
Mrs. Mills said to her daughter-in-law,
"Mattie, take care of Clio; take
him to church, for you will never do
any good unless you live close to the
Lord. Take care of your father, and
he will be a friend to you both if
you will treat him right." Mrs. Mills
was a member of Rebecca Court of
Calanthe, No. 3, I. O. O. C and East
ern Star Chapter, No. 8. Her last of
ficial act was to attend the State Grand
ssion of the Court of Calanthe one
month ago. Although her physician
advised her not to make the journey
to Knoxville, she felt that her duty
must be fulfilled. After the session
she returned to her home and took
her bed. Although under the care of
the best physicians nothing could be
done to save her life.
Truly a good woman has gone. May
we emulate her good traits, serve
our Master as she did, and at last
meet our dear friend, sister and com
rade in that home which is prepared
for the final faithful.
The body was laid in a beautiful
black plush casket, which was ladened
with many wreaths of flowers. The
following were active pall bearers: D

The Next on Tap.
As both the National Baptists and
the Nashville . Butchers claim the
championship of the city league it has
been decided to play for the coveted
honor on Monday, August 26, at Ath

said Joe Gans when he arrived from
San Francisco yesterday. "While I
never say I am sure of winnir. a

Nelson took chances the other night
He could have signed with me for a
$40,000 purse, but he went mgainst
Britt for a little money and Britt
whipped him. That was Nelson's
hard luck, for he may never get a
chance to fight for a big purse again.

Britt. and it would mean a big loss
to me to let him win. That is one
reason why you can bet that I will be

Asked about his physical condition,
Toe said: "Some people think that the
loldfield fight has affected me. I
have not been in the ring since the
Herrnnn fight at Tonopah and I don't
know, to be dead certain. I can say,
though, that I have found no traces of
it so far. One reason why tho Nel
son fight did not hurt me is that I
did not take any punishment. All I
had to do after the tenth round was
to stay there and let him shove me
around the ring. He wouldn't fight
so that is all there is to it."- Clipped!
