Among the thousands of "Kome
Comers" who Visited this and other
cities of Tennessee last week there
was probably no one who enjoyed the
return to the old home more than Mr.
H. G. Dwlggins, of Kansas City, Kan.
Mr. Dwlggins was accompanied by his
wife and little daughter, and while
here they were the guests of his
brother, Mr. D. Dwlggins, who. to
gether with his congenial wife, made
it very pleasant for his brother and
family. . It was a delightful scene to
see the two brothers together, and

REPORTS OF THE HOME MISSION
AND NATIONAL BAPTIST PUB
The twelfth and eleventh annual re
ports of the Home Mission Board and
National Baptist Publishing Board of
the National Baptist Convention, are
no doubt the largest In many respects
made by two boards or denominations
identified with, and controlled by the
Negroes In the United States. The
Secretary of these two Boards has his
headquarters In this city. He has been
at work as no other man has worked
In Nashville. His report shows that
he has built up two magnificent boards.
The first part of the report shows the
Home Mission Board and Its work. It
contains, first, the members of ' the
Home Mission Board from each state
in the Union, and then goes on to take
Lup the work done by this Board In the
past twelve months. It shows an ex
penditure In the last twelve months of
$42,57G.!H"5. All of this has been spent
on home fields for salaries of mission
aries, tracts, Bibles, church edifice
furds and for the spreading of the
Gospel at our door. The next cart of
the report Is a little more volumin
ous and gives a better Idea of the work
done right In Nashville. It has added
so much to the commercial ' A the
