church or a Sunday school, is an organ one that
is built to suit the home, the congregation and
the financial condition of the people. This is what
a National Baptist organ will do.
AN ENJOYABLE OOCCASiON.
A large number of the friends of
Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Goodwine as
sembled in their apartments on Eighth
evenue, North, Tuesday night and par
ticipated in a most delightful social
aftair. The spacious corridor cleared,
the floor, as smooth as one could de
sire, music tnat was most pleasing
to the ear and correct as to time, the
whole being lighted with almost the
brilliancy of day, enhanced the pleas
ures of the brilliantly gowned ladies
and the gallant gentlemen who de
light in " dancing. In the dining
room, a splendid vision met the eye,
while likewise, delightful refresh

Goodwine were the recipients of many
encomiums of the happy guests on the
pleasant manner in which the even
ing was spent.

want the absent pupil punished or
put under some sort of discipline. Up
to this writing, each teacher has a
star in her crown on the blackboard
with 5 absences each for this week,
with two more days to run. Each
teacher, Misses Bryant and Pinkard,
claims that she will win, and woe be
unto the pupils that are absent on
Thursday and Friday.
The High School banquet in honor
of the Burrell -team was a decided suc
cess in spite of the downpour of rain.
Odd Fellows Hall was brilliantly
lighted and the young people were on
hand in large numbers. The menu
was elaborate and was exquisitely
served. There was a super-abundance
of everything. Prof. G. N. White
made a short address, thanking the
Pearl teachers and team for the royal
treatment he and his men had re
ceived. Prof. F. G. Smith responded
in a few appropriate remarks. After
music, light conversation, singing and
giving of school cries, the banqueteers
dispersed, carrying in pleasant mem
ory the first annual contest between
Pearl and Burrell.

A NOVEL CONTEST.
The members of the II. T. G. M.
Club are setting a mark for sociabil
ity that has seldom been eclipsed by
any social organization in this city.
The regular meeting of the club which
was due to meet with Miss Mollie Berry,
of Jefferson street, was made the oc
casion of an entertainment by that
young lady that was unique in the his
tory of the club. A Cobweb Contest.
The double parlors and the adjoining
room of the Corrington residence were
a veritable maze .of various colored
cord3 interspersed here and there with
club colors and banners, forming the
three rooms, a huge irregular cobweb.
Partners for the contest were select
ed by conundrums and their answers.
To each lady was given a slip of paper
upon which there was a question. To
the gentlemen were given similar slips
of paper which contained an answer.
By. this means each gentleman found
his company for the contest. The sev
eral couples, each taking one strand
of the web, began to unweave the web
and wind the cord.
The contest for the first prize result
ed in a tie between the couples com
posed of Miss Hazel Thompson, Earl
Harris and Miss Carrie Mildred Bry
ant, L. E. Johnson. In the draw off the
first prize for ladies, a box of writing
paper went to Miss Thompson; that
for a gentleman, a pocket toilet case
went to her partner, Mr. Earl Harris.
The consolation prizes, a bottle of per
fume and a box of bonbons went to
Miss Esther Polk Berry and Mr. J.
Frank Battle respectively. At the
conclusion of the contest a delightful
collation was served.. Those present
were: Misses John D. Thompson, Car
rie Mildred Bryant, Hazel Thompson,
Esther Polk Berry, Alberta K. Davis,

which correction Mr. Boyd made in
Mr. Dickson further calls upon the
manhood of the South in the following
language: "Are you men of the South
such cowards, knowing the facts in
the case, that you haven't nerve
enough to swear out a warrant for his
arrest and prosecute the case to the
fullest extent? If you did, don't you
think that the next white man who
went to a Negro house and found
three little children alone, would take
a grand tumble and pursue the even
V tenor of his way? And you ask me to
visit the Southland, where one white
brute cowers 15,000. I ought to visit
A there, and bring with me a few baek-
bones to supplant the shoe strings
your men have for a back-bone. I
dusli for shame that l am a meniucr
of such a weak-kneed race as seems
Ito live in Nashville , and call them
selves men. I could for an hour write
in this vitriolic vein, but what's the
use? The Negro will fight the Negro
against great odds, and a hundred of
them will run. from one white man."
After an apology to Mr. Boyd, assur
ing him that it was not intended for
him personally, Mr. Dickerson closes
the lengthy letter with the following:
"Awake, my soul, awake,
Shake off this foolish fear,
Be ye cowards or be ye freemen,
God helps those who help themselves."
"The letter was replied to," states
Mr. Boyd, "at length, and the gentle
man in the North was given a better
conception of the conditions as they
prevail in the Southland. He was as
sured that his ideas regarding this
section of the country were erroneous
in many respects. That the exercise
of the ballot by the Negro citizens of
Tennessee was in no way denied, and
PEARL HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.
This school was highly honored on
Tuesday morning by a visit fjom Mrs.
P. II. Crafts, of Washington, D. C.
Mrs. Crafts is a woman of interna
tional reputation. She has traveled
all over America and has visited all
the important' countries and cities of
the Old World. England, France and
Germany in Europe and China, Japan,
Korea, the Hawaiian and Fiji Islands
in the East. Mrs. Crafts addressed the
school, giving the pupils some idea of
student life in the East. The lecture
was listened to with rapt attention
and at its conclusion was roundly ap
plauded. The Burrell Normal School football
team has come and gone. The inclem
ent weather spoiled what promised to
be one of the greatest social events
of the season. The Pearl team has
gradually grown in the hearts of the
people and Bennett Field would have
been, crowded on last Saturday, had
Jupiter Pluvius been propitious. The
young ladies of the school showed
their pluck and loyalty to the sons of
Pearl, for notwithstanding the rain,
they turned out in their tallyhos and
brought good cheer and happiness by
their songs and yells td what would
otherwise have been a dismal after
noon. With.sueh loyal followers, the
Pearl boys could not help but win,
which they did in grand style.
The Burrell boys made a fine im
pression on the people of Nashville by
their politeness and good manners.
They did not seem to know the game
of football as played in these part t
but they were gentlemen in c-v(y
sense of the word. Prof. G. N. White,
the principal, is an exceptionally lino
man and deserves credit for the manly
deportnifnt of his team.
The race for perfect attendance be
tween the 8-A and 8-B Grades is wax
