More Room for the Baptist Publishing
A permit was issued last week by
the building inspector of this city,
which gave permission to the Baptist
Publishing House to put a second
story on the building next door, which
has been partly occupied by them for
some time. It is the building in which
the editorial secretary, Rev. W. fa.
Ellington, and the field secretary, Rev.
Wm. Beckham have their offices. This
building will be remodeled, enlarged,
and a second story added. The first
floor will be used as a mailing room,
counting rooms and shipping depart
ment, with the sales department on
the same floor; while the second story
will have the offices of the field sec
retary and the editorial secretary.
There will also be provided a beauti
ful chapel, which will be fixed up as
a church. When this is completed the
'ubhshing House will move their
chapel and counting rooms from the
third iloor in the building across Lo
cust street, at the corner of Second
avenue, which they have occupied for
the past four or five years with the
B. Y. P. U. Board. There are numer
ous improvements going on at the
ublishing House and several new
pieces,, of machinery were delivered
there this week. Among them was
a new folder, feeder and a new press
feeder. They also installed another
5-horse power engine. A concrete
floor was laid in the press-room of the
three-story building just completed.
Windows are being cut in the front
building and a concrete walk is being
aid for the south side approach.
When all the improvements under way
are completed there will be an ex
penditure of about $35,00, $20JJ00 of
which will be spent in machinery,
the remainder in improvements in the
building. Dr. Boyd stated to a Globe
reporter that he intended to make
these improvements and then get
down to work for the next ten years.
CHRISTMAS BOOKS AND CHRIST
In looking around for appropriate
presents that will be in keeping with
the times, as well as the financial con
dition of the individual, it should not
be forgotten that the latest, the most
attractive, the best bound, as well as
the cheapest books on the market by
vaiious authors can be had at the Na
tional Baptist Publishing Board, 523
becoud avenue, Noitn. Last year
their record will show that they sold
more of Dunbar's works, more of Chas.
v. Chestnutt's books, and, in fact,
more books by Negro authors, and
more Christmas cards than they had
ever sold in the history of the institu
tion. The demand is so great, not
withstanding the variety covered a
ong list of select books and cards,
they were forced to replenish their
stock, yet nothing was carried over,
as long before the holidays closed,
there was nothing left. They have
announced for the coming holidays
that they have put in a large stock
of books and cards, which was select
ed by the same excellent taste as that
of last year. Those who wish to
make presents in the book line and
those who desire to send out Christ
mas cauls should call and see the
beautiful assortment and seize the op
portunity to get what you want. Many
of Mr. Dunbar's books are out of
print, and but few can boast of having
a full set. Such as are in print can
e had at the National Baptist Publish
ing Board, It. H. Boyd, Secretary, 523

gin its session at Payne Chapel, Ram
sey street, between Fifth and Sixth

Monday night last a great host of
the lady members with a few broth
ers with brooms, scrub brushes
scouring mops, soap and what not,
met at the church and gave it a thor
ough cleaning.. The pastor and his
wife and daughter were in the crowd,
and all worked together like children,
each one vieing with the other to see
who could do the most. The work
was opened with prayer and closed at
10 o'clock with the benediction pro
nounced by the pastor.
Monday night next the great bean

coal will be given away to the one

The ladies of the church are work

nesday afternoon they carried the
pastor to the tailor and had him meas
ured from head to foot.
The young men of the church
headed by Messrs. G. R. O. Grady, W
F. Davis, Joseph E. Matthews, Ar
thur Taylor, Samuel Turner and Rob
ert Martin are working to present the
pastor with an overcoat
Dr. Flagg should feel proud of such
a membership. Rumor has it that
Payne Chapel will hold on to its pas
tor and risk no chances.
Next Sunday is Dollar Money Day
and Pastor's Salary.

DOUBLE TRAGEDY IN CHICAGO.
There arrived in the city last Fri
day the remains of two Nashville
people, man and wife. They had
lived in Chicago for some time. On
Wednesday, the 17th, the husband,
Mr. Jude Williams, for jealousy, it is
supposed, shot and killed Mrs. Katie
Williams, his wife, and afterwards
turned the weapon upon himself.
Death came instantly. There remains
were shipped to Nashville and buried
by Taylor & Co. The woman before
her marriage was a Miss Katie Carter,
while the man was well known in
this city. The scene upon the arrival
of the remains was indeed pathetic,
as the families of the deceased were
personal friends and had not had a
misunderstanding. This friendship

MRS. SYLVIA SIMPKINS DEAD.
In the death of Mrs. Sylvia Simp
kins, who was possibly the most
widely known hotel woman in the
South, there is a vacancy that will not
be filled very readily. Mrs. Simpkins
was the proprietor of the Simpkins
Hotel at Guthrie, Ky., and had run
this hotel at for the past twenty
rive years and was possibly one of the
most unique persons in the South.
Guthrie is located just on the state
line of Kentucky and Tennessee. The
L. &. N. at this place goes in four dif
ferent directions. Therefore many tran
sient guests stop over at Guthrie, wait-
ng for one train or another. They
always found a warm welcome and
comfortable lodging place and hospita
ble reception at the Simpkins Hotel.
Mrs. Simpkins was a member of the
Baptist Church, while her husband,
Mr. Simpkins, was a member of the
Methodist Church, but there was no
denominational strife between them.
Their union was one of peace and
harmony, and the ministers of all de
nominations found a pleasant retreat
and a comfortable home at their hos
At the funeral there were scores of
prominent ministers from four differ
ent states. Rev. C. II. Clark, D. D., of
this city, who is well known by the
family jand who had stopped with
them often during the past fifteen
years, had been summoned over the
long distance 'phone to be present
He conducted the funeral service.
Hie question was asked at the serv
ices, "Who would be a friend to the
traveling ministers, as the deceased
had always been?" She was not only
a friend to the ministers, but to the
so-called "hobo" element. She was
never known to refuse to give a meal
an often without money and without
price. She fed the unfortunate. Mrs.
Simpkins leaves a host of friends. At
there funeral there -were present dis
tinguished citizens of both races, as
she had spent most of her life in and
