SPRING HILL. . I
We are gmd to say tliat we re
blessed again with more beautir'u.1
ar.usjlne, yet it la very cold, under
loot. Having had so much snow
and ralu, we can't expect it to feel
warm, but we are gkd that the Lord
has so wonderfully blessed us
through such a hard winter so far.
We are more than glad to see Uie
blessed sunshine asain yet it has
not beeu shining for eljiht weeks or
more as it did Sunday and Monday.
Sunday being such a pretty day over
heal we had services in town for the'
first time since the first Sunday in
the year. Rev. A. B. Thompson filled
his pulpit at the M. E. Church Sun
day night. He drove through from
Franklin Sunday morning and it was
too late to hold the it o'clock ser
vice, but he was at his best Sunday
night in bis pulpit. The Reverend
has not been here In about 'four
weeks. His members and friends
were all glad to see him come driv
ing In town with his buggy with
his horse so nicely cared for. The
Rev. A. B. fThompBon received a nice
little sum from .his members and
friends. The young people seemed to
he more than glad to see the Rev.
He left here Monday evening In route
for home. Rev. J. W. Sherrill filled
hlb pulpit at ML Hope Missionary
Baptist Church Sunday night. They
report a nice congregation and a neat
sum for him. He returned to his
hom Monday morning. His mem
bers were glad to see him. We still
have a good many on the sick list
but we are glad to say that a good
many seem to be improving. Mr. Mc
Lemore Is still feeble but we hope
that he will get better. Mrs. Lizzie
Fllison has been sick for some time.
We have a lot of sickness here but
can't got all of the names. Sister
Jane Lockridge had a very sad acci
dent to happen to her Saturday
morning. She is sick and can't lie
down and in some way she caught
Are and would have burned up but
some of her neighbors heard her
catling for help and went to her as
sistance. We had a bit; Are here to
day. Mr. Chris Wade lost his home
and everything he had. also Mrs.
Belle 'McLemore lost her house but
she did not lose any of her belong
ings. It aeeraed for a while that
the fire could not be checked. The
bells rang for help from all of the
churches. The men of this town
fought like firemen, sure enough fire
men. Mr. S. B. Bond, Jr., made a
good run with the ladders. Mr. Tom
Marshall is in a suffering . condition
but seemingly he has a gold consti
tution, we hope, he will improve
Rev. Green Thompson Is in Nashville
at this writing. He is a father to
his members, especially the old ones
or his church. He cares for then
just as long as he can and as long
as tney live, ir they am near him
As old Sister Jane Lockrlde has no
one to care for her, Brother Thomp
son has taken her into his home and
s'ays he will do for her Just as long
as he is able to do. He is worthy
of being praised. Mrs. Luvinla Da
vis was here Sunday visiting her
parents,' Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Bond.
Mrs. L. E. Overton and Ada Baugans
were the guests of Mrs. Davis Fri-
day. Mrs. Emma Burns was In our
midst Sunday. Rev. Floyd Flippins
was here but he did not preach. Mr.
Porter Caldwell and Mr. James Wade

They report a pleasant time. They

is very sick in Columbia. Mr.
Frank McLemore of Columbia was
here Sunrtav to see his brother ana
friends. Little Miss Laura Ann Over
ton Is visiting her cousins, Alliluo

A large amount of this fund has

has been thrown upon the market.
Four mammoth Mergenthaler Lino
type machines, nine printing presses,
one of them' with a capacity of over
10,000 quarterlies an hour, with
every conceivable kind ot book bind
ing machinery, makes it possible tor
this plant to give the Negroes any
thing in the printing line from a
postal card to a Bible, or from a call
ing card to an encyclopedia.' In the
last report of the secretary ot that
institution, which was read before
the National Baptist Convention that
held its session in this city, they
showed that the operation of the
plant has been marvelous, that the
results obtained have far exceeded
the moBt exaggerated predictions.
More perhaps than any other one
agency contributing to the plant's
success has been the guiding hand ot
the venerable secretary, the Rev. R.
Hi Boyd, D. D., who is a product of
the days of slavery. He has been
often designated as "the giant oak in
the forest," A Moses ot his denomi
nation," and a boon companion and a
believer in the "Little R. F. D. and
Unknown Baptist Preacher." His
"Boyd's Pastors Guide," that was
adopted by the National Baptist Con
vention when it met in Richmond,
Va., some years ago, with his "Boyd's
Church Record Roll and Minute
Book," are reported to be the most
extensively used publications ot a
standard make in the denomination
While pure Baptist literature, set in
type by Negroes, printed on presses
operated by Negroes, folded, stitched
and trimmed in a book binding plant
operated by Negroes; written, edited
criticized and corrected, by a com
petent force of Negro editors and
proofreaders, has left no question of
a doubt but that the Negro Baptists
have solved the problem of the Ne
gro's ability to produce his own lit
erature. The denomination, irres
pective of their personal feelings
hai with one accord, stood up for
and is sending their patronage to
Dr. R. H. Boyd, Secretary of the Na
tional Baptist Publishing Board, at
Nashville, claiming as they do, that
"He has brought something to pass,
we will stand by the man and the in
stitution that has succeeded in giV'
ing to the race and the denomination
a plant worth the while, one that
gives our children employment and at
the same time, gives to our schools a
Baptist literature produced by their
own people." Chief among the great
supporters of the institution have
been the so-called "R. F. D. preach
ers," and the "Little Unknown Bap
The recent addition to the Nation
al Baptist Publishing House plant at
Nashville, in the form of new, mod
ern, up-to-date printing machinery,
has also put them in the fore-front
of all the race producers. During
the past year they have turned out
two of the largest lobs ever handled
by a Negro Printing establishment
One of the books that was run off on
the printing presses and bound in
this institution, was nearly 1200
pages. The late Dr. Booker T. Wash
ington was one of its staunchest sup
porters, and delighted on more than
one eecaslon to refer to the suecesg ot
the institution. When the "Wash
ington Party" toured Tennessee with
their special train, they wound up at
Nashville and it was the mammoth
chorus made up of the employee of
the National Baptist Publishing
Board who furnished the Jubilee
singing at the great auditorium on
that night. They sang the songs
written by Negroes, printed on
presses operated by members ot the
race, and Dr. Washington spoke be
hind a pulpit and used chairs made
at the same institution.
"Bringing things to pass, giving
hope to the race opening the door ot
opportunity tor the Negro youth,"
has been one of the watch-words of
Rev. R. H. Boyd, the secretary and
founder ot the National Baptist Pub
lishlng Board, who operates the Na
tional Baptist Publishing Plant at
