STORIES MOTHER TOLD."
"OUT OF THE SHADOWS."
By Carrie Hill Hoffmann "The
Mother Story Lady.
Some day when you study history
you will learn about the fearless and
gauant Balboa, discoverer of the
Pacific Ocean. Away out in Califor
nia is a new Balboa, a discoverer,
too, not of great oceans and far-smil-ng
lands, but of little children with
lng lands but of little children with
wunuenui taients. The new Balboa
mo name or a studio where are
made many of the motion pictures that
theJarent-Teacher Association and
the great magazines of the world call
Better Films for Children."
Not long ago this new Balboa made
a new discovery, and they were as sur
prised as the Balboa of old when he
climbed over rocks that for centuries
had been chiseled by hail and smooth
ed and polished by storms, and finally
reached the sumit of the mountain
top and beheld the peaceful Pacific
glittering like a diamond beneath the
morning sun.' The new discoverers are
always on the lookout for folks who
can do things better than anyone else,
but O dear, no, they did not suppose
that the gardener's son, little Leon, a
woolly-headed colored boy, could do
much of anything. In fact, they had
not even noticed the little seven-year-old
boy when he came to the studio
gardens to see his father he always
kept in the shadows, where folks are
not looking for talent.
Little Leon's father is a very sensi
ble man, and he taught his little Bon
t understand that a seven-year-old
pickaninny must not get in the way
ui nue ioiks in a busy motion pic
ture studio. And Leon liked so much
to watch the camera men wind -and
wind those wonderful machines that
take the pictures, that he was very
careful to do as he was told.
iFrom a long line of ancestors little
Leon had learned obedience, for you
know, if you have read your history
well, that less than sixty years ago
the Negroes lived in the shadows of
slavery, were owned by white masters,
and had to obey them or sometimes he
whipped and punished cruelly. Leon's
grand-mother was a baby then, a low
ly slave's baby, whose white master
had the right to take her away from
her own mother's love and care and
sell her to a new white master. In
those days it was a common sight to
see men, women and children put on
the auction block like ahorse or a cow,
and sold to the highest bidder, wives
separated from their husbands," chil
dren from their parents, and brothers
from theis sisters.
We know that this was very wrong,
for all people are children of God,
be their color white, black red, yellow
or orown. And since God has creat- The Nashville friends of Dr. S. D.

ofTanot,her- Dr. Redmond was in Nashville several
When Leon s grandmother was born weeks ago as the guest of Rev. and
a baby slave, Abraham Lincoln, the Brs. H. A. Boyd. He came to visit
great and good man who said these his daughter, who was then in Fisk

block and the lash. And when the
power came to him to abolish slavery,
ha fearlessly issued the Emancipation
Proclamation that gave freedom to all
the Negroes in the United States.
With the dawn of freedom many
changes came to Leon's grandmother.
She grew with such chances of educa
tion as befall the children of poor Ne
gro families in the South. Perhaps
that is the reason she made great sac
rifices to send her own daughter little
Leon's mother to school to save her
from the rough and stony path or
The Negro mother-heart knows that
odds are against a little boy when his
hair is kinky and his face is black.
And that is the reason Leon's mother
will make even a greater sacrifice to
give him the chance to develop his
wonderful talents. For the little fel
low no longer lingers among the
shadows dreaming dreams, but in the
center of the stage takes his childish
but truly artistic part In the beautiful
pictures that go all over the world to
instruct and entertain.
And this is how it happened.
From watching the camera man
wind and wind the wonderful ma
chines that take the pictures, he be
gan to notice, the artists who acted
out the beautiful stories. And then
like any normal child he tried to
imitate all they did, but just for his
own mammy, who'd laugh and call
him "Honey" wit- a tenderness that
only a Negro motur can feel for her
free born child.
Leon's mother is very fond of
poetry, and keeps a book in which
she pastes all the beautiful poems
about her race that she finds. And
some of the finest of these that Pau.
Lawrence Dunbar, the Negro poet,
has written, she has taught her little
son, Responding to the love of rhythm
that lies deep in every Negro's soul,
Leon has not only learned these
poems, but aots them out with a
grace that is wonderful to see, even
to the "Tu'key struttin' in de ba'nya'd,
Nary step so proud as his."
Living in a world of make-believe,
Leon has developed an ability to act
that is marvelous in one so yonug.
But even the keen eye of his mother
for several months. He operates a
big drug store In Jackson and Is one
of the busiest men of the Mississippi
POSTMASTER SHANNON WRITES
The new Nashville city directory is
now being compiled by the publishers.
Its accuracy depends largely upon the
co-operation of the public. Postmaster
Shannon stated yesterday that In
view of the fact that the city directory
plays such an important part In the
delivery of mall matter reaching the
Nashville Post Office Incorrectly or in-suflcU-ntly
addressed, all firms. Indi
viduals, and agencies doing business
in this city should see that the pub
lishers or the Nashville Post Office be
given all names and addresses by
which patrons may receive mail.
Every year a new directory is pub
lished and many names are omlted,
thereby rendering it impossible for
the postoffice to deliver the mall.
In this connection, attention is in
vited to position taken by the Frst
Assistant Postmaster General, rela
tive to such mail, which is as follows:
Your active co-operation is request
ed in an effort to relieve the postal
service of the burden imposed by the
growing evil of inconvpletely and Im
properly addressed mall.
The delivery of letters, especially
in the large cities, is frequently deley
ed and oftentimes Impossible by the
omission of an important part of the
address such a3 the street number,
or room number when addressed to
an office building. Not Infrequently
the name of the street is omited, only
the name of the Post Office and State
being given. Another sourse of
trouble Is the practice of giving an
address at the intersection of two
streets without giving the location
of the corner, for in some large cities
a number of carriers routes may ter
minate at that point or It may be
the dividing line between the respec
tive territories of the main post of
fice and a station or between two
stations, and in the absence of the no
tation "N. E.," "N. W.," etc., the dis-

the new directory, ttiey should be on
the safe side and send In an order
to the postmaster at once.
All persons who s have recently
moved to the city and all new firms
should give this matter Immediate at
tures. He did so exactly as he was
told and put so much feeling into the
part he played that he was given a
more important part. And then the
wonderful discovery was made: the
child had the power to make of his
acting a refined and delicate art.
Now a beautiful story for little
boys and girls and grown-up people
to see and love is being written just
for little Leon to act. It is one that
will be classed among the clean
photoplays for children, one that will
stir the heart with every element, of
human sympathy for alawly but un
spoiled child of God.
And if the little Leon, who is but
a grandson of a slave, can with his
great gift lead men, women and lit
tle chldren to live more worthily,
who is there among us but rejoices
that he has come from the Rhadow of
obscurity to live in the light of renown!

DR S. D. REDMOND IN CUBA.
The increasing carelessness on the
part of the public in addressing their
mail is mo doubt aided and abetted
by the practice of the Department In
supplying sufficient addresses, and
also by the exploitation in news
papers of the ability of some clerks
to decipher "freak" addresses.
Postmasters should advise their
patrons that complete and accurate
addresses are essential to prompt
mail delivery, and that they should
co-operate with the Department to
the extent of seeing that mall orig
inated by them bears a street num
ber or room number in the case of
an office building in addition to the
name of the city and State. Atten
tion should also be invited to the fact
that they can be of material as

eral public With respect tb this re

intended for transmission in the mails
printed with their complete street or
