. One of the most enjoyable and pret
tily arranged affairs of the season was
the reception tendered Mrs. Mattie
Pegram Davis, by Mrs. Elnora Work
Sango at the beautiful home of Mr.
and Mrs. W. H. McGavock.
The friendship of Mra. Sango and
Mrs. Davis dates from the days when

Davis' visit to her home city she ar
ranged the enjoyable reception. Mrs.
J. D'. Ballentine, Mrs. Sango's sister
served as hostess, assisted by Mrs. W.
The handsomely, furnished recep
tion suite of the McGavock residence
was delightfully decorated for the oc
casion. Palms and cut flowers were
used in abundance; the dark foliage
; of the ferns and the lovely tiuts of
the blossoms under the delicate glow
t of the vari-colored lights made a hand
v some back ground for the lovely wom-
en in their handsome gowns who called
during the evening. About fifty guests
the hospitality of the hostess.
Several prominent out of town

Which Will You
fiave, Joy or
Perhaps you may think this is a
strange question to be asned but what
does it mean? It means this: Many
young people are wild for fun. They
will pay out money and stay up very
late at night and go with company
that is not very choice, all because
they want to have some funsome
foolish talk that will make Ihem
laugh. If father says "that is a dan
gerous place you had better not go
my son," the son replies "ih, falter
you know young people must have
When mother says, "daughter, I do
not like that young man," the girl
answers, "Oh, mother Wis so funny,
he keeps me laughing all the time."
To be able to make people laugh is
a wonderful gift.
We turn aside from good sensible
company and follow the one that, can
tell jokes and keep you laughing. But.
remember that the laughter of a fool
is like the crackling of thorns under a
pot. They make a great noise, but
there Is not substance enough In them
to make the pot boil. Every one should
be happy and run over with joy and
gladness but not fun. So much fun
and nonsense does not pay. When if
is past it leaves you sad adn rsetlesa.
If something really funny happens,
laugh and laugh heartily but do not
go out of your way to get fun or to
We hope you will meditate upon
this subject, and quit spending so
much time in giggling and nonsense
and instead take time to read good
oboks and write letters.
It looks very silly to see a young
lady or gntleman strolling up and
down the streets looking for fun. Fun
is Satan's substitute for joy. Fun be
longs to the earth.
The joy of the Lord is the strength
of his people, the sunshine that scat
ters their sadness and gloom.
One of the great and good things
bout the Rev. Dr. W. H. Moses is that
he has continued to move and ret
around, nd talk and squirm until he
has finally landed in Pennsylvania,
the home of Harry K. Thaw. From
the last dealings of the Pennsylvan
lans with that distinguished per
sonage, the Pennsylvanians ' know
what to do with men, who are
somewhat disorganized above the
eyes. It would not surprise
us to hear of the good Pennsyl
vanians, sooner or later, taking
charge of our good friend and
brother, and giving him a free treat
ment for neurosis, or to be more
specific, nervous diseases. His last
ding at Dr. Frank, his argument and
analysis of the able editorial deliver
ed by Dr. Frank of the Union-Review
on the subject, "THEY FAILED TO
PROVE IT," Justifies the conclusion
that he' has lost his reason. Dr.
FJrank was clear, concise, able, logi
cal. There was no possibility of a
successful contradiction of the posi
tion in which he placed Dr. Boyd,
but from the analysis of the editorial
given by Dr. Moses, Dr. Frank slew
his own giant, when as the editor of
the People's Defender sees it, Dr.
Moses as is his custom has simply
twisted things to shit his evil pur
poses. But nobody should think
strange of him. A man that Is capa
ble of so many changes, and -such
erratic ran tings, sucji mental aberra
tions, and such psycholologLcal ' dis
plays as has been his for the last fif
teen, months would seemingly be cap
able of almost anything. But as we
said, before, the Pennsylvania, we
are quite sure, will soon take charge
of him, and accommodate him as they
have accommdated the psychological
pervert, Harry K. Thaw. !

WILvT IT SriOW'S SOME
THINGS IT SHOWS.
According to the immic press,
Tuesday, Juno 5, was registration
day. The day appointed by the gov
ernment for the registration of all
I males in the United States between
j the ages of 21 and 31.
It is encouraging to note thfc
something like ten million young
jnen came forth and registered pre
paratory to being drafted for mili
tary services in the United States
government. To be sure a largo
number of this amount plead exemp
tion causes, or causes that they
claimed would exempt them from
military service, but the reocrd shows
that a large and encouraging num
ber gave no reasons why. But the
point that is very encouraging to the
editor of the People's Defender and
J should be to the Negro everywhere Is
I that the young Negro registered in
such large numbers. We were de
lighted when we studied the figures,
the returns showing the registration
of Arkansas. The registration lt;t
in Arkansas demonstrates that tcry
REV. J. B. RIDLEY,
ire hundreds of young Negroes be
tween the nr;es of 21 and 31. and also
shows thnt there are hundreds of
voting white men between the same
lages. The comparative figures are
Interesting and show that the Negro
Iforms about one-third, or a little over
me-tMH of the nntlre population
of the st'te, that is, if we are to re
gard that the ratio will continue,
that Is the ratio between the whites
of other ages and the colored of
other aes as Is demonstrated by the
whites and blacks of the ages be
tween ?1 and 31. The total number
of whites registering in Arkansas,
89. nd thnt of colored. 33.843,
which shows a little less thin one
holf of the whole number registering.
There ore several things that will be
exeeedlne'lv clear from these figures
nfter the war ts over as it relates to
the polH'cM strength "lid possibiH
Hps nf tie two rices. Tt is enconrag-tno-
to note thit in the citv of Little
Rnck the registration ns between the
nces wis splendid. The whites show
in the citv of Little Rock, 3,509: the
tntl colnrd in the citv of Little
Rock, l:fiDl. In the countv of Pulas
ki, the countv in which the capital
of the state Is situated, the figures
are more encouraglng.indeed in favor
of the Negro, for if the public re
ports or public returns are to be
credited, then outside of Little Rock
in Pulnski Couptv there were more
"oung Negroes between the ages of
21 and 31 registered than there were
young white men between the ages
of 21 and 31. The figures follow:
Whites in Pulaski County outside of
Little Rock 1,737; colored In Pulas.
kl County outside of Little Rock,
1,824. There are a number of other
counties in the state that show a
larger Negro registration than
whites. Those figures gotten up by
the government are Interesting when
one begins to study them from a po
litical point of view, and they will
be of great service to the politicians
in after years. The editor of the
People's Defender congratulates the
Negroes Upon their splendid showing,
and this congratulation comes not
only lo thera because of their large
registration, but because also of the
fact that they did not find reasons
for exemption any more than other
races. The figures compare most
favorably, for the number of those
registered by the whites, the number
of those registered by the colored,
the ratio was about the same com
pared with the total number. The
black man should not feel bad when
in tinitU of crises, when in time that
men should be men, when there is a
demonstration of manhood, when
there Is an opportunity of a fair
show and a" fair record, the black
man should not feel discouraged
when it is proven that his record
stands about equal to that of any
Tha People's Defender.
TIIK LAST DREAM OF ABRAHAM
By C. T. Wettstcin.
The following story I found some

I have never seen it published in Eng

One evening his nife noticed that
he was unusually quiet and absent

Mrs. Lincoln what she thought of
"Nothing," was her reply.
"Well, 1 am glad to hear that from
you," said the President, "because 1

which none of us would like to be

boy, jumping upon his lap, "come, tell
Lincoln, at lirst, hesitated, but when
the boy continued his entreaties, he
said: "Well, if your mother wants to
hear it I will relate the dream."
When Mrs. Lincoln said she would
listen the President related the fol
"It was late," said the President,
"when I went to bed ast night. I was
tired and soon fell asleep. Then 1
dreamed that I was surrounded by a
great stillness, and in the distance 1
heard several people weeping. Then 1
went down the stairs. All around niu
as tho same stillness, but the weep

distinct. I came to a room with an
open door. I entered, but I was terri
fied at what I saw.
In the middle of the room stood a
beautiful sarcophagus, on which stood
a large coffin with a corpse inside.
Around it stood military guard and a
large crowd of people filled the room.
" 'Who died?' I asked one of the

'He was killed by an assassin.'
"Then I heard such loud weeping
and lamentations that I awoke. I could
not go to sleep again, and I felt very
much depressed." and the boy looke..
at him, greatly terrified.
When Lincoln had finished, Irs. Lln-coln-r

confidence. "We will not speak of it

unable to shake off the distressing im

That something was wrong with the
President that day was noticed, not
only by his family, but also by the
members of his Cabinet. They tried

stand these words? Later oh, however,
this singular prophetic dream, "was

That there must be soiue truth In
this story can be seen in the book of
John Foster, "Life of Charles Dickens,'
in which he says:
"On the afternoon of the day on
which the President was shot there

with great surprise, that the President
