It ia purely vegetable and its vitaliz

qualities are so pronounced that bene

MRS. ZEFFIE JOHNS WINS IN
Of widespread interest to the many
friends of Mrs. Zeffie Johns who re
sides at the corner of 6th Avenue and
Lea Avenue, is the announcement
that she won the prize at the
Autumn Festival given under the
auspices of the St. Paul A. M. E.

Several weeks ago Mrs. Johns who
is a popular member of the Mt. Olive
Baptist Church, a regular Sunday
school attendant and an ardent work

testants in this unique affair. Quite

WILLIE MAI CLARK DEAD.
The members of the Mt. Olive
Baptist Church are grieving with
their pastor over the loss of his
granddaughter, Willie Mai Clark,
who departed this life Monday after
noon. This beautiful young girl was
the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Grant
Clark and during her brief young
life had endeared herself to a large
circle of friends who had hoped to
see her grow in valuable womanhood.
However the ways of God are paBt
finding out and he elected to call her
to himself, so she quietly folded her
arms and her young body gave up Its
spirit to the God who gave it.
Dr. Clark left the city Monday
morning for Texas to be gone a fort
night however, Rev. H. A. Boyd,
Assistant Secretary of the National
Baptist Publishing Board sent sev
eral telegrams hoping to reach him
before he had left the state of Ark
ansas and acquaint him with the sad
MRS. PORCH DEAD.
The sympathy of a large number
of friends goes out to Deacon Porch
of the Mt. Olive Baptist Church over
the death of his wife, Mrs. Porch,
who died suddenly Monday after
noon at the family residence. Mrs.
Porch has been in poor health for
some time and while her friends
knew that she must pay the debt
that we all must pay shortly yet
the suddenness of her taking away
was very shocking to them.
Mrs. Porch was a member of the
Mt. Olive Baptist Church and before
illness overtook her was very faith
ful in the performance ot her duty.
Dr. Clark, the pastor is out of the
city on his way to Texas and funeral
announcements have not been made.
