A MATTER OF FASHIOX.
A Moore County minister comments
frankly and without reserve on the
way "certain young women" expose
their legs in public places even iu
the coldest weather. Not content
with exhibiting the "ample rotundi
ty" of the members in question, the
parson obseives, they permit
"glimpses of suffering flesh," presum
ably because of the diaphauus tex
ture of the holsery worn. "It's a
great exhibit," the parson unblush
ingly confesses, but he wonders if
the dear girls are compensated for
their sufferings by the attention they
succeed in attracting from the male
of the species. The parson fears
that such notice as is bestowed upon
Hie show is unworthy, coming, It Is
tjiiite likely, from men least worth
a woman's while.
But did not the distinguished par
son look? Surely, although a bach
elor well along in years, he is worth
any woman's while. And if so dis
criminating an observer, not to say
connoisseur, as the parson should on
occasion frankly contemplate street
displays in holsery, why is the as
sumption not warranted that other
equally chaste and respectable males
may betimes glance out of the corner
of an eye upon some particularly al
luring exhibit? Tut, tut! Why not
confess that all men are tarred with
tbe same stick? The Lire of Ee is
strong, and few there be who are
able to resist it, nt least !o the ex
tent of stolen glances now and then.
But, aside f.-om any question of
morals which may be bvolved i:i
the contemplation of feminine con
tours as thev aie revealed on the
streets. Tbe Globe is in agreement
with the parson in wonderment as to
why the women do it. AnT one is
entitled to a guess on this riddle.
The Globe Is not going to attempl
to sclvve it. : But it is con
strained to indulge in a few observa
tions on the Mil'ject. In the first
place, one would think tliat consid
erations of iHifort would impel
women to lower their shirts and
wear thicker li very in cold weather.'
And if torn fort did not suggest that
course, another thought is that sob'
respect ought to compel it. But
fashion seems tc be the supreme law
of women that is to say, some wom
en ami what Fashion decrees U
done, Irrespective of either comfort
or solf-respect. The Globe is
"Not only bone dry," "but the bones
calcined, pulverized and filling the
air with millions of glistening particles.
A man has to live with himself
continually. For that reason it be
comes him to walk circumspectly
that he may look upon himself with
some degree of approval, lfcnv it
must shame a man to look- in the
mirror and know he is face to face
with a crook.

stroyed millions of dollars worth of

DEATH OF MRS. MARTHA ALLEN.
After a short illness, Mrs. Martha
Allen, ot 1401 Pike street, passed
away at her home two weeks ago.
Mrs. Allen was one ot the most re
spectable citizens of Nashville and
was the mother of a large family of
children, most of whom were reared
In the city. Her death was a shock
to the community and scores of
people sent their condolence from
this as well as foreign cities. The
funeral services over the remains of
Mrs. Allen were held from St. Paul
A. M. E. Church of which she was
a memler for forty years. The Rev.
II. U P. Jones, pastor of the clrureh,
In his funeral oration which was pa
thetic and touching, eulogized her as
a saint who had worked for forty
years unceasingly. Rev. Jones was
assisted by Rovs. G. L. Jackson, Ho
ward and Bishop Tyree. Mrs. Allen
was the mother of Mrs. Cora Allen
Bigby, of Great Falls, Montana; Mrs.
J. C. Wood of Dayton, Ohio; Dr.
Clarence Kugene Allen of Philadel
phia. Pn.; Mr. J. B. Allen, of Colum
bus, Ohio, Messrs. Charles and Lytle
Allen of this city. There are six
children in all surviving her, all of
whom came to Nashville as soon as
they wore summoned to the bedside.
The flora designs and the letters of
condolence came from various sec
tions of the United Slate.

to concede that, being self-confessedly
old-faj-'hioned, it could not con
templa'c a street parade m the part
f any member of ils own family
with patience. However it will not
be so severe as is the parson and
intimate that all who so parade are
immoral. Its conclusion rather is
ihut women, and especially very
young women, are only thoughtless in
their devotion to Fashion's decrees.
The Globe dees not believe tha'
i young women who make sucii
unwise exhibition of their charms in
public have any correct knowledge or
the way they are regarded by
Cnoughtful people. They do not
mow how many people, Including
ome men, blush for them, in the ab
sence of their inclination to blush
for themselves. Therefore the Globe
will say for their benefit that many
f the glances which are directed to
ward them are more glunces of pity
for their Ignorance, and contempt
for their folly, and amnzement at
the shallow vanity whloh tempts
them, than they are glances of ad
miration. But the Globe recognizes the futil
ity of preaching to the women about
fashions, and it does not expect that
anything it or the parson may say
on this subject will restrain them
from doing just as they please about
their attire. Fashion will continue
to fix the styles, and not preaching.

DR. R. H. BOYD'S ADDRESS
(Continued from Page 1.
Allow me here to throw in a little
Texas anecdote. It is said that soon
after the war an old-time, common
sense Negro living down on the farm
but who had learned to real a little
having a hard time, crops had failed,
merchants were refusing to furnish,
be looked around over the door of
the blacksmith shop and saw that
the shop was owned or run by Bill
Jones & Co. Going up to the grocery
store, he found tnat it was run uy
John Williums & Co. Going to the
dry goods store he saw that was nil
by Jack Jones Co. Mounting his
old mule and going back to the farm,
he called in a few of the other
tenants on the farm and said to
them, "Boys, let's go to town and
make the acquaintance of Mr. Co.,
and have some land f our own."
They inquired of him to know who
was Mr. Co. He said- he did not
know the gentleman personally, but
certainly he w&s the best friend that
the town people had, for he was
helping to furnish the means to run
every shop and every store iu town,
and he was sure that if they could
get acquainted with him, the good
man would help them buy some land
of their own. The next Saturday his
ether three companions accompanied
him to town, going up to the black
smith, he inquired of him to kuow if
he could tell him where Mr. Co.
lived. The blacksmith was astonish
ed and sent him over to the dry
goods store where the post office
was. He Inquired of the store keeper
and postmaster if they could tell
him where Mr. Co. lived. He pointed
to the'sign over the door and said,
"Tliia man seems to be helping every
man in town." The rdd gentleman
and his friends were informed that
that was John Smith and Company,
and that a number of men were
nutting their heads, their money
their energy and their labor together
and running the store. The old man
was considerably disappointed, but
be and his associates went back t
the country, formed an agreement
among themselves, begun to purchase
land, cleared away the timber, made
rails, and in a few years each one
of them owned a farm of their own.
Gentlemen, what the farmers of
this country want to learn is to
know Mr. Co., and the Negro farm
ers in particular should know him
and have him to help them. I have
just noticed in a recent magazine that
Mr. Henrv Ford, the great automo
bile, manufacturer, Is now manufac
turing and getting upon the market
a little auto traction gasoline vehi
cle that will pull the wagon, pull the
plow, carry the hay cutter and do
all that the horse would do except
five times as much without tiring,
Let two or more farmers unite them
selves, buy the ' tract ion macnine,
start early in the fall, while some
ere gathering the crop, let one he
brcakintr the ETOiind, and this one
traction engine will do more plough
ing at less, expense than four well-
regulated miile teams.
