The members of tliis wide-awake
church, led by their faithful class
leaders, seeing the bad condition of
the weather, which keeps many of
the members indoors, put on a small
Christinas rally for the pastor, Rev.
J. K. Childress. The rally was to
be kept a secret from the pastor.
It was dated for Sunday, December

snow, but the members and friends,
old and young, came up against it,
and some, laid on the table quarters
and others a dollar, ties, handker
chiefs, socks and a shoulder of meat.
This was planned by the leaders and
the pastor knew nothing of the plan
until it had circulated among the.

NEGRO'S DEBT OF .GRATITUDE
FOR 1917 REVERSE.
The Negro's debt of gratitude
We are going to reverse;
The writer on such subjects
Should ride smoothly ia a hearse.
He has no one to look to
Except his Caucasian friend;
When needed or in trouble,
A helping hand they should lend.
The Negro is alwaye thankful
For donations from white friends.
As to loyalty and patriotism.
He certainly has always been.
The Negro is responsible
For most white people's success;
Then when he makes an effort
WJiy shouldn't the white man do
The real white men of today
Believe in helping the Negro out.
For which we praise and thank them.
Yet they rather we would keep

And really wants some fame,

That would add history to his
One should never be conceited:
And may always write the truth;
For seoUng fae through daily ipa
pers, He might be' traced back to
Our debt gratitude for Jesus,
The only one we owe
He died for our redemption;
The Cross on Calvary He bore.
The Negro race does humble
To most races of this world:
'Tis because they have no privilege,
And are taught that when boys
When the whites help educate us,
In a way they help themselves;
Fitting us for different positions,
Enlightened servants they like
A Negro without some white friend,
In this world is almost lost;
When in trouble or discomfort,
To degradation he is tossed.
The white man needs the Negro,
From every point of view;
One hardly exists without the other:
They need each other, that's true.
The Negro's debt of gratitude,
In my estimation has been paid;
He has worked hard from the begin
ning; Many fortunes for others he has
