ADMINISTRATION ENDORSED BY
Last Meeting Before Grand Lodge
The last mooting of the Nashville
delegation to the Grand Lodge K.
of P. was held Tuesday night at the
Pythian Temple. Knight A. W. Fite
presided during the session, From
the beginning to the end the meeting
was exceedingly lively.
The measures discussed proved to
be of prime importance insofar as
the burial department of the order
Resolutions were drafted to be
presented to the grand lodge and one
to be presented to the Supreme
Lodge thru the Supreme Representa
tives. The arrangements for caring for
the representatives have been com
pleted. Each day brings additional
applications for room and board at
the Y. M. C. A. building. The Y. M.
C. A. Sec'y. is simply waiting for the
time to come, he is ready to serve
invitation is extended to the dele
gates to make free use of the Y. M.
C. A. building, its lobby, reception
rooms, and parlors for committee
meetings and conferences. The Com
mittee on resolutions brought in a
fine report which was adopted after
a great debate indulged in by
Knights' Foster, Porter, Johnson
Moore and others. Knight J. B. Bat
te again proved a valuable asset to
the delegation by his timely remarks.
One of the most pleasing aspects
of tho meeting was the delegations
endorsement of .the adminlsxration.
This is considered quite a compli
ment and no doubt will be highly
appreciated by tho officers and nieru
bors of the grand lodge.
It was pointed out that the plans
and purposes of tho present admini
stration wero such as to excite the
admiration cf every member of the

Again it was pointed out that tne
purchase of the splendid property on
on the corner of 4th Ave., and Cedar
St., fifl Temple purposes was the
greatest effort ever put forth by the
administration and that this of itself
was enough to inspire the delegation
to go on record as being in full ac
cord with the plans and purposes of
tho administration. The members of
the delegation wero served ice cream
by Mr. F. O. Sawyers, manager of
the Eureka Ice Cream Company. As
is well known, Mr. Sawyers is inter
ested in the order and never fails to
do its members a kindness at any
time. The delej-caition tendered! the
Company a vote of thanks.
The representatives to the Supreme
Lodge from Florida and Georgia have
been in communication with the
Deputy Grand Chancellor A. W. Fite,
concerning the route to St. Louis. It
has been definitely settled that these
bodies will meet the Tennessee dele
gations at Chattanooga, Nashville
Col. A. Franklin Stewar.d of the
3rd Ga., Reg. U. R., K. of P. has giv
en Grand Deputy Fite the assurance

Much speculation has been indulged
in as to who will bo present at the
coining grand session.
It is true that death has entered
our ranks and many of those who
have visited the Grand Lodge from
time to time will be absent, but we
are reasonably certain that from
East Tennessee, W. L. Reeves of
Johsmon City will again visit the
Capital City. Arthur Haaen, A. A.

TEACHERS TO MEET IN NEW
New Orleans, La., July 16, 1917.
Those who attend the Fourteenth an
naul Session of the National Associa
tion of Teachers in Colored Schools
at New Orleans, La., July 25 to 29,
will have an opportunity to come into
direct contract with valuable historic
data as well as nn opportunity to see
three of the leading- educational In
stitutions for Negroes in the South. It
was here at New Orleans that the trans
fer of the Louisiana Province was
made to tho United States in 1803. The
room is still preserved and the spot on
which and the table around which the
aagreement was made can be sun
by visitors. Tho spot on which the
Battle of New Orleans was fought by
Jackson, in which the Negroes took an
important part, is of interest to visi
tors from all sections of the country.
The old French market still has its at
tractions. The three Institutions for the edu
cation of the Negroes of the South are
Straight University, which is foster
ed by the American Missionary Asso
ciation; the New Orleans University,
under the direction of the Freedman's
Aid Society, and Xavler College, under
the auspices of the Catholic Church,
which ocuples the position and in other
respects the place of the former South
ern Uiversity which has been removed
to Baton Rouge. Leland University,
which for many years was under the
direction of the American Baptist
Home Missionary Society and the site
of which will be of Interest, has been
recently removed to Alexandria. This
school has also figured greatly in the
educational history of Louisiana.
As to the attendance at the session
to be held here, reports come to us that
tho Mississippi State Teachers' Asso
ciation, which held its meeting last
week, voted to come in two special
car parties. Texas will also have its

AUTO PARTY TO MAMMOTH CAVE.
One of the most enjoyable excur
sions of the season was the Auto Party
to Mammoth Cave., Ky of which Rev.
and Mrs. H. A. Boyd were the host and
hostess. The party of seven left the
city in Mr. Boyd's car about twelve
o'clock Saturday night. They arrived
at the Cave at twelve o'clock Sunday
having travelled one hundred and ten
The party passed through Qoodlets
vllle, Shakertown, Springfield, Auburn,
Adairsville, Russellville, Bowling
Green, Glasgow Junction, and 'Cave
City. Mammoth Cave itself is one of
the seven wonders of the world. The
main avenue of the cave is sixty feet
high, forty-two feet wide and four
miles long. This avenue is called
Broadway. The Cave was discovered
In 1802 at which time a hunter chased
a bear into its opening, however it was
in 1812 that speculators discovered
that it contained valuable mineral de
posits and for a number of years men
and oxen were busy mining these pro
ducts. The old vats, leached soil and
the water and alkali pipes are still
to be seen. The pipes are very interest
ing being made of wooden logs with the
insides drilled out. There are two
rivers In the Cave. Echo River and
the River Styx. Pensacola Avenue and
Slippery Elm Street are also very in
teresting. The Board Walk which one
travels around the river Styx till it
joins Echo River is a very interesting
pelce of crude carpentry.
Dinner was served in the Park
Reserve, after the party had gone
through the Cave. The journey con
sumed about four hours. The return
trip was made Sunday night, the party
reaching the city at four o'clock. Aside
from Rev and Mrs. Boyd, in the party
were MiBses Susie Crawley and Marie
Boyd, Mrs. Emma Battle and Miss
Battle and Mrs. White.
"STAT MAGNI N0MTNIS UMBRA."
Truly the status qou of the Negroes
of Nashville, may be summed up by
the above quotation. Of the histories
of the institutions in the city, whose
Influences have established this accre
dited status, perhaps the history of the
Colored Branch of the Y. M. C. A. be
cause of the brevity of its service and
the wholesome influence created, will
prove the most Interesting for discus
sion. Nashville needed a Y. M. C. A. for
the Negro men of Nashville long be
fore one was opened in its midst. Not
that Negro men have not grown to suc
cessful manhood, without the institu
tion, but that the percentage of those
who have not grown to successful man
hood might be lessened. Retrospec
tion is the attitude of a declining peo
ple. Virile races look forward.
Only a few decades ago, our people
were assldously training the girls and
women of the race. In our schools, at
the present time, the female outnum
bers the male about three to one.
When this woeful condition of affairs
was brought to the attention of the
leaders, they contended that the num
ber of females born outnumbered the
males. For a time this explanation
sufficed, till mothers realized that after
settln gasire the appointed number of
daughters, who might reasonably be
expected to die old maids, there were
still three trained girls to one trained
by. The laws of the land allow only
one wife to a man. Upon investiga
tion, however, it was discovered that
the doubtful places of amusement,
street corners and pool rooms were
filled with men and young boys. Of
course, these males could not be select
ed as husbands for these trained
females by their ambitous parents.
In many cases however, the trained
females thought differently and mar
ried these undesirable men. Even
some of the females who according to
statistical reconlngs, should have died
incelibate, married also.
"Tcmpora mutantur, et nos mutamur
in illis" Educators and Social Uplift
Workers are emphatically declaring
that in order to maintain the social
standard, the males must be trained as
well as the females.
You will notice that we have used
the word "trained." We did not use the
word "educate" because to us the words
have different meanings. We are
primitive enough to believe that you
can educate and not train. We believe
that training is a greater accomplish
ment but can not be effective with
out education. Education can be of the
head only, but training must include
the head, heart and hand.
The Colored Men's Branch of the Y.
M. C. A. is a monument to Right Liv
ing, the outcome of unselfish effort.
The first campaign held by the Colored
forces of the city demonstrated the cal
ibre of the men of Nashville. Their
efforts were not accuated by selfish
niotives. Of the four gentlemen who
gave $1000 each, oonly one has sons.
One has died since that time leaving to
posterity no issue. They, themselves,
will certainly reap no rich harvest
from the Institution. Of the three who
remain, one has passed the allotted
three score and ten mark. The con
clusion reached therefore, from the
given premises Js: that there are men
of the race, the motto of whose lives
is: Salus popull supreme est lex.
I am .a Negro consangulnty. To me
the greatest asset of the race is its
young men. Every young man in
Nashville should own a membership
card to the Y. M. C. A.. If the young
men of your Immediate family are
thoughtless, and do not yet realize the
benefit to be derived from such a card,
you, as his mother, sister or sweet
heart, should present him with one.
A membership card costing $5.00 if
paid cash, would make a lovely Christ
Boys and young men are naturally
restless. There is a stupendous
amount of superflous energy that must
be expended. The Y. M. C. A. can teach
them the right way of expending that
When remodeled the Nashville Y. M.
C. A. for Negroes will be the finest in
the country. Its success depends on
the people of Nashville themselves.
Insist that the young men of your ac
quaintance join the Association. By so
doing you will be instrumental in shap
ing the destinies of the next genera
tion. When time shall have whitened
your hair and you must lay the bur
den that you are now carrying oh the
shoulders of the young men, you can
sit complacently by and witness the
birth of the next generation, assured
of the fact that no ill can betide the
offspring because the mothers and
fathers have been trained morally,
mentally and physically.
Mrs. Ammie Baines, very ageable,
died at the residence of her daguhter,
Mrs. Laura Young at Nashville. Her
remains were brought here. She died
in full triumph of the Lord. She

tist Church, where her funeral was
attended. Rev. Boyd. Rev. W. M.
Wilson officiating. She is survived
by four sons, two daughters, several
grand children and a host of friends.
She was laid to rest in the Batnes
Cemetery. On last Monday night,

ple's Christian Association, that Is to

well taken. Officers, Brother It. E.

Haven't you often wished for a medi
cine to reduce your flesh? Something
that does not require dieting or calis
thenics? Well, right here you have it
in 6 grain tassco tablets, which you
may secure at any drug store. They
are pleasant to take, perfectly harm
less and cause no restrictions of
habit or eating, and reduce the flesh,
little by little, until you are down to
the number of pounds you wish to
weigh. Too much flesh is undesirable,
as most quite stout people will readily
admit, and it detracts from one's good
appearance; makes one clumsy and
short of breath.
There isn't any reason why anyone
should be too stout, when there's this
much-tried perfectly satisfactory reme
dy at any drug store. Tassco tablets
(don't forget the name) are recom
mended by physicians and are guar
anteed to be perfectly harmless. Re
