MISS PHILLIPS TO VISIT
LEARNING THE ART OF LIVING.
, By II. E. Cole.
Special to the Nashville Globe:

derstanding with which men airily
'ake up the great business of life.
Plan purpose, philosophy, most of us
have none. It really seldom occurs
to us to prepare for living as for the
most serious undertaking of our exis
tence. How to live serenely, slmlrily and
servicable and in the full exercise of
our powers is a great problem, which
's none the less real because so often
The Christian conception of life
has no place for tents ot ease. It is
lot a pleasant abiding luxurious place.
It is a march, a battle, a war. The
virtues it demands are the fighters
virtues, of these preparedness is one
of the first. Let your loins be gird
ed about, said Jesus, that is gather up
your flowing robes, fasten them into
the belt, and be ready to march or
fight or work.
As a fireman is ready within a few
seconds at any hour of the night or
lay to mount the engine and be off,
as abathing master watches a beach,
ready to leap into the water the in
stant anyone is in danger. So the
Christian is to keep himself ever in
a state of perpetual preparation, alert

The chief speaker of the day -was
Bishop Thomas Nicholson of Chica
go, who tooK for his theme, "Some
Humanitarian Aspects of Edu'cat'on,"
He called attention to want, misery
and woe, fl',-, diijase and crime
found in any large city, and in this
connection spoke at length of the
goodness, mercy and justioe of God.
The Bishop said all these burdens
and drawbacks in life are perhaps
avowed by the Almighty to come
spur people on to an awakening to
the great possibilities of life and the
work each can accomplish. He said
the important thing is to find ones
self, that "God is willing to co-operate
wdth man in the accomplishment
of any great work."
The speaker drew a comparison
between the old North America-
Indian who inhabited the Mlss'ssippl
valley in the early days, and the
white man, who came later and de
veloped this gieat section. This
proved a very interesting and in

Saturday, Oct. 13, Mrs. Rachael Mor
gan died at the home of her daguh- -ter,
Mrs. Mariah Jackson on East
Grove street. Mrs. Morgan had been
ill for several months and died at
the ripe old 'age of 102 years. Surely
her long and useful life was a bene
diction and blessing from God. She
had several children and grand- chil
dren and while she lived she watched
over them with the love of a shep
herdess, Many hearts have been
touched by her wholesome advice and
lives were molded accordingly. She
was a member of the Baptist church
and was always glau to be led to a
throne of grace. She was loved by
white and colored and was well
known throughout the community,
being the oldest colored citizen in
Obion County. Her death has cast -1
shadow of gloom over our communi
ty. Mrs. Ellen Doan of Champaign,

tend the funeral of her husband, Mr.
Will Doan, who departed this life-.
Sunday night, Oct. 7. Funeral ser
vices were conducted from the home
on Railroad street. Tuesday after
noon. Mr. Doan had been in ill health
for sometime, but was able to be up
and about and was thought to be do
ing fine, so his death came quite un
expected. He has a host of friends,
who deeply deplore his death. Mr.
James Eulys of Hickman, spent a few
hours in the city Monday en route
to Jackson to enter Lane College.
Mrs. A. M. Gilbert is on the sick list
