CARTER AND SANDERS
Winchester, Tenn., Sept. 4, 1917.
A marriage that came as a sur
prise to the people of Winchester was
that of Mr. Hubert Carter and Miss
Hazel Saunders, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Wm. Saunders, . which was
solemnized Saturday, September 1st.
At 9 a. m., the bride and groom

slowly entered the spacious parlor
while the beautiful wedding march
was played by Miss Boddie. The
decorations were of ferns and cut
The bride was most becomingly
gowned In a gray charmeuse with
georgette crepe finishing, she carried
a lovely bouquet of brides roses. Only
a few intimate friends were present.
A number of valuable presents were
received, one of the number being a
check of $150 from the brides father.
Immediately after the ceremony, the
bridal party was motored to the
residence of Mr. Hunt, where the
wedding breakfast was served. At
3:00 p. m.,"Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Wise
man entertained them at dinner.
The bride and groom accompained
by the bride's mother, left at 4:30 p.
m., en route to Indianapolis, Ind.,
where they will reside In the future.
Miss Saunders is one of Winches

received her training at Roger Wil

Mr. Carter is a native of Murfrees

young man. He also received hfs

We wish for them a happy and
prosperous journey through life.
The grand object of every life
Bhould be to make gome one happy.
As disciples of Christ, each one of
us should be a sunbeam, brightening
the corner where we are. If each one
ot us who profess the name ot Jesus
would strive to Imitate the examples
ot his life there would not be a sad
heart In the world. Much unbappl
ness and misery Is caused by unkind
and unthoughttul words far out-number
the wounds caused upon the field
of battle by. shot and shell. It we
would make others happy, we muBt
sneak cheerful words, and lend a
helping band. Great many people
reserve - all ot those pleasant
thoughts, and kind words about oth
ers potted and sealed until the day
of their demise, and then they will
come and break the bottle over their
coffins and bathe their shrouds with
fragrance. Many a sad heart goes
through this life, dying for the want
ot a kind word, or an encouraging
deed. There are people In the walks
of life In the school room and pulpit
who are today laboring hard for the
uplift of others. Yet their lives are
saddened because they are misrepre
sented, misunderstood and maltreat
ed. No one ever say a good thing about
them while they live. No one ever
stops to encourage them, but just as
soon as they are dead, they will stand
by their casket and speak into the
the ears that are closed to all earth
ly the things that should have been
to them while they lived. "
Friends, there has been enough
sunshine scattered around the coffins
of those departed to have made them
happy for fifty years. There have
been enough cheerful things said
around the grave to make this world
happy until the clarion notes of Ga
briel's trumpet wake the sleeping
millions from their profound slum
ber. .Tne time to scatter sunshine
is in a person's life time when he
can enjoy Its beauty; the time to
give flowers is while we live, their
fragrance cannot be inhaled when e
are dead. Let us not defer the good
things we have to say about others
too late. Let us speak well of the liv
ing. Let us shout our appreciation
for service rendered to our people by
those in public life. Let us not kick
the hand that is feeding us. It we
would make others happy, we must
not ' become chronic complaints.
That person who makes a specialty
of complaining is like a dark benight
ed cloud darkening and wrapping In
gloom the sphere of activity in which
Let us not be a cloud but let us
make of our lives a band of music,
sending out pleasure on every side,
far and near, to all that can hear
the melody that comes from our harp
of a thousand strings.
Let us not be like the vender of
umbrellas who was met upon a rainy
day by a friend. The friend remark
ed to him, "a good day for your busi
ness," but the umbrella vender -replied
to him, " A good day for um
brellas but I haven't sold a single
parasol." He would have the sun
shine to shine on one side of the
street and it rainin.g on the other
side", and. since it was not, be was dis
satisfied. He was a natural grum
bler. If things don't come our way
let us not grumble; let us look upon
the bright side for it will be worth
a thousand pounds to cultivate the
habit of looking on the bright side.
Just laugh and grow fat, for It
will be worth your while just to cast
a little smile. So just live to make
happy by smiling as you go.

THE LAST AGE OF TIME.
Ey Pearl L. Gilllama.
May the Lord help us all to realize
that we are now living In the last age
of time. The 24th chapter of Mat
thew Is being speedily fulfilled. Jesus
tells us that when ye Bee all these
things, know that It is near, even at
the doors," Matt. 24:33, and "This go?
pel of the kingdom shall be preached
in all the world tor a witness unto
all nations, and then shall the end
come." This glad news of Jesus'
speedy return is foretold in Matthew
24:14 and it Is seeping to the earth's
remotest bounds. This mighty fact
is being Btrongly proclaimed to every
nation by the saints of God, and I am
forced to believe that the final period
(and) about to be placed too upon
the last page of earth'ssin-stained his
tory. This know also that in the
last days perilous ( dangerous) time
shall come. 2 Tim. 3:1. We are now
standing upon the threshhold of peri
lous or troublesome time, the torna
does and other great calamities an
nounce it. Even this old earth her
self trembles it forth, for the steady
increase of earthquakes is an unmis
takable slj,'n of the end. Matt. 21:7.
For nation shall rise against nation
and kingdom against kingdom, and
there shall be famines and pestilences
and earthquakes in divers places, and
that knowing the time that now it is
high time to awake from our sleep
for now is our salvation nearer than
when we believed the night is far
spent, the day is at hand; let us put
on the armor of light (righteous
ness). Rom. 13:11, 12.
On the beginning of Jesus' Galilean
ministry when he went into the syna

prophet Isaiah (Isaias) was delivered

Secret Societies are the channels

this reason,' if no other, every Negro

There are so many, ways in which
the Negro taKes disease that coula
be avoided, provided he was properly
instructed and would follow the in
struction. He is an easy prey in a
multiplicity of ways. He will pur
chase for himself and family, germ-
laden, second-hand clothes, never
giving a thought to the probability
of taking disease from them. He
will often eat food left by others
and will drink with joy anil satisfac

in this way. All ot this comes . ..m

COLORED TROOPS AND DRAFT.
What occured at Houston last week
ought to suggest to the war depart
ment great care in the handling of
the Negro troops In the war. Readers
cannot have forgotten the sanguin
ary conflicts between Negro and
white soldiers at, Macon, Anniston and
other camps In 1898 and Brownsville
later. Rioting against the Negroes at
East St. Louis and Springfield, 111.,
and clashes between white guards
men and Negroes at Springfield, O.,
and Chester, Pa., recently show that it
is easy to precipitate these race out
breaks. Congress has seen fit to call an
equal proportion of both races into
service for the war. The draft af-'
fects white and black, alike. Properly
handled the colored soldier is brave.
His record at San Juan hill was of
the best. Col Roosevelt's "rough
riders" were saved at Santiago
in 1898 from a perilous situation
by the Tenth infantry of colored

sanctorum from the intrusion of a

consummation. To permit lax or In

At Houston the trouble seems to
have started with the arrest by the
police of that city of a cloored
woman, and rough handling the color
ed troops habitually received from
the police. Then about 150 of the
blacks "ran amuck" and shot up the
town. The exhitition was a poor tes-

Some years ago the National Bap

several resolutions to begin a Publish

resolutions; not a dollar wasput up
as a bonus to even show good faith.
Then we organized a Publishing
Board whose business was to get out
Sunday school literature. The Board
was only organized and finally incor
porated under the laws of Tennessee
The concern grew possibly beyond the
anticipations of a living man, yet we
only asked of the Convention that it
give its moral support, which was
done. And as we dived into the work
further on, it was found more and
more necessary to add further and
further to our little stock until finally
the Publishing House became a strong

OUR PUBLICv SCHOOLS.
In the educational report given by
the National Commissioner, Hon.
Thomas Jesse Jones, of Negro educa
tion and schools for the last fifty
years, the public schools that have
the industrial features attached to
them fared much better than a num
ber of our colleges. For instance, the
Gibbs High School of Little Rock
makes a much better showing In the
report than either the Arkansas Bap
tist College or the Philander Smith
College, or even Shorter College oi
Argenta. The cause of the delinquen
cy on the part ot our colleges seems
to be especially due to the Incompe
tency of the management, as well as
the deficiency In the organization of
the teaching force and the weakness
of the teaching force also. The re
port shows that the Arkansas Baptist
College is managed by the President
and while It admits that the book's
and records are kept In harmony with
the system of the Home Mission So
ciety, It also states that the system Is
incompetent and antiquated and not
at all in harmony with the progressive
Idea of tht present day. It Is strange

The public school system is to be

While we are not a prophet nor the

public school system of the city ot r

that scholarly and splendid school

Let the people of Little Rock rally
mightily around their school system ,
and give this young genius an oppor- -tunity
