Those long resolutions from this
lodge and that lodge could be left
out with entire satisfaction to the
assembled- mourners and friends.
The unlimited jargon by the stereo
typed volunteer speech makers could
bo eliminated. Too many frills and
furbelows are wholly out of place as
it makes the funeral resemble a fes
tival where all are having a good
time. The undertakers we opine,
would welcome with great acclaim
a sane and simple funeral in which
a few well chosen songs are render
ed, a prayer, a short Bermon, and on
to the cemetery.
Too many of us make the funeral
occasion one of levity and not of
mourning. Let's out out all the unde
sirable and uncalled "for Mineral exer-
ise9. If the deceased be very prominent
a memorial meeting might be had inV
er where the virtues of the departed
mav be extolled and the letters and
telegrams of condolence read.

ELECTING WETS OR DRYS
One of the primary effects of the
submission of the prohibitory amend
ment by congress to the states will :
be the reintrodui tion of the liquor
question to all the states which had
previously disposed of it. And it
will odd impetus to the fight in those
states that have not yet adopted the
dry policy. Twenty-seven states al
ready have settled the dispute with
more or less permanency, or they
thought they bad. and it will come
with something of a shock to them
the voting must be done all
over again. Most of them will take
comfort, of course, or at least their
dry element will take comfort, in the
knowledge that, having already lived
under the dry regime for a greater
or lesb- period of time, the benefits
are so thoroughly established that a
ratification of the amendment is a
prefunctory affair, not to be consid
( ered as interfering seriously with
war problems and other questions
coming up for settlement from time
to time. To such states the ratifi
cation will be preceded by no great
But in some states where the ques
tion has been but recently settled,
or where the voters have not yet
quito decided to enter into a perma
nent condition of dryness, the contest
will be a bitter one, and it may be
e.;,ecte,i that many other questions
of importance will be relegated. In
mic'i states the wet and dry issue
will be the paramount one, beginning
wi'h the 11'IS campaign. Legisla

Washington. D. C, Jan. :!. The
Washington Bee, of which William
Calvin Chase is the well-known and
famous editor, offers this advice to
members of his race: The colored
race is now parsing through a great
crisis. The Bee counsels all of the
wisdom of keeping a still tongue and
a wise head. Let us look to the mor
row, remembering that He who notes
the sparrow's fall will not suffer us
lo be lost. This week's press reports
brought us news that almost bears
down Wrongest hearts, but the future
is roseate, in spite of the past. Just
at this time, let us content ourselves
with burying the thirteen troopers.
I not praise them. God is the final
judge and time works wonders. Let
us keep a still tongue and a wise head.
