"THE IDEAL WOMAN.'
One of the most beautiful books
in tlie Bible is the littie book Ruth
The book gels its name from the
lieroiue of the story; one of the most
ideal women mentioned in the Scrip
lures. We catch a glimpse of her
lovely soul in her memorable decis
ion, expressed in voids of rare
charm. To Orpah, who entreated her
to return to her people and her;
gods, she said: "Entreat me not to
eave thee, or to return from follow
ing after thee; for whither thou

friendship they are unrivaled. The
picture of the three widows by the
roadside is sufhVien'ly gloomy. But
the noble spirit of Ruth suddenly
shines forth lieke a bright star in
a dark night, and brows an imperish
able light on the scene. From that
moment a charm lingers about Ruth,
men look upon her with ad
miration. Having made up her
nr.ind as to what was right and her
cNty, nothing could turn her from
ij.ite many a woman, Ruth was
moved greatly by love. A character
istic of every' woman approaching to
the. ideal, will be a dignified affection
nd a warm sympathy. How beauti
ful to see a great and noble love,
earned by years of patient, faithful
service- True love is not built upon
cheap words and fund caresses, a
fragile promise and a sweet face.
The love that is strong enough for
life oomran onship must be founded
r.n honor, sincerity of soul and
generosity of nature.
To be womanly is to possess ten

this needs to be iUotel in our ilav

woman for the moral tone of the
community Is much more serious
than that of the young man. Her
great and supreme influence is in
the field of morals. Every woman of
character has a more dominating
influence in the matter of conduct
over men, titan men of the same
type have over women. Men look
to women for a moral code, and the

IS IT STRANGE?
As civilization forges forward, or
appears to forge forward, it seems to
become more expensive to live. Why
should this be so? We cannot get
away from, the belief that true en
lightenment should go hand in hand
with simplicity, and simplicity Is net
expensive. Even the burial of the
dead is a sham and tawdy display of
cheap adornments made insultingly

In the last two years I have had
the pleasure of visiting a number of
colored banks, among them are the
Ben.ger Bank of Chicago, The Penny
Savings Bank of Birmingham, Ala.,
the Solvent and Fraternal Savings
Banks of Memphis, Tenn., and the
Wage Earners' Bank of Savannah,
Ga., which is claimed to be the finest
and most complete Banking building
in America for Negroes, builf at a
cost of more than SUa.OOil vh03e
assets for 1914 were $267,046.58, and
nssots for 1915 were $272,927.97, a
; gain of $5,281.29, while your gain for
1916 la $19,494.00.
When the Company first opened
business it did not pay much atten
tion to the Savings department of
our bank, a3 our people knew suc.i
a little about saving. But for the last
fpw years we have been giving spe
cial attention to the savings depart
nient, so we have in this department
more than $U,oo0.oo. This mean:;

spend what they earn.

I therefore recommend that we ask

BRANSFORD REALTY COMPANY
For anumber of years the Brans
ford Realty Company of this city has
remembered Its patrons during the
Christ mas season. The past Christ
mas was no exception. To the hun
dreds of people who have patronized
this company there were prepared
and presented to them tokens of re
membrances from what is easily one
of the most substantial and best
known companies in Nashville. To
the hundreds of patrons there was
given a bag of assorted fruit about
the size of a fifty pound flour sack,
The truit cnosisteit of oranges, ba
nanas and raisins. To man yof the
larger patrons there w.n presented
a box ol oranges, iresn irom uie
orange groves of southern Florida.
Oilier remembrances of various kinds
were sent out. Reviewing the work
f the Branslord Roa ty Company, it
is noticeable that some of the best
la nies owned by Negroes in Nash
vil'c were purchased by them from
his company, through whose liberal
and easy term payments, hundreds
j purchased and paid for homes
who otherwise woum sum ue renting
-s il would have been utterly im
imsvillo fer them to secure a house
rnd lot, as they were not able to
n.cct the demands of roa' es'ate men
o r sent'tig owners, air! who were
asking for money nq cash payments
thai tbcv could not pet together.
But in the Bnnsford Realty Com
nany plares a small first payment,
with eisv monthly payments, where
the inie'cst is taken enre of in each
note. The Negroes of Nashville
have been eneourageu in me noma
buying and home building liallit.
While" the Realty Com pa v has been
very active and boapts of having
I he most, liberal unit easy navments.
