HO.V. W. E. KING.
Editor of the Dnllns Kxnrpsis rinl.
las, Texas, who is attending the meet
ing or tne .National Negro Press As
sociation. "Colonal King" as he is
known among the newspaper men is
a factor with the quill pushers.
Miss Verneatia Blanch, ill, another
sick list will follow later. Now good
people, getting down to brass tacks,
was the opportunity ever more favor
able to do daily service in the spirit of
the Master than the present, which
is issued by our financial condition and
alarming sick list? No. Well what are
you doing in the Name of the Lord?
Yes that is the saying of many. "Look
ing out for self." We are now remind
ed the story of the old colored man
who was fishing, had a little boy about
four years old at his side, as he threw
the line into the water, the little chap
fell in also. The old colored fellow
plunged in and brought out the young
ster, squeezed him out, and stood him
up to dry. A clergyman who came
along happened to see him and said,
"My man, you have done nobly, you
are a hero, you saved that boy's life."
"Well," said the colored man, "I
didn't do that to save his life, he had
de bait in his pocket." Now isn't that
a downright selfish spirit? And so
it is with many of us today; we are
so full of Ego that our sick, afflicted,
widows, orphans and all else may be
hurled to the bottom of the sea of
oblivion, while we are pulling hair
out of each others heads by handsfull.
To make a long story short, when you
buy a fifty cent steak for yourself,
buy at least a fifteen cents steak for
your sick neighbor etc. Miss Nannie
Clay of Hickman, Ky passed through
the city Saturday enroute to Tren
ton, Tenn., to resume school duties.
W'hllst in our lovable little city, she
was the guest of Mrs. Lucy Totton.
The Misses Bettie, Nannie and Tennle!

Mrs. Lucy Totton Sunday afternoon.
Mr. George Wade made a flying trip

your friends request us to say that j
your Illness has nulled the pleasant

Bingham, Secretary of the recent or
ganized Bible Reading Club gives in
an excellent report to wit: Club
called to order by President Hender
son, song and prayer was offered by
Rev. Johnson. The regular work wag
tht begun. Lesson discussed was

cussion opened by the Instructor
which was highly and entertainingly
treated by members and visitors. Each

interesting and that new thoughts were
gleamed by all. Members present 10,
visitors 2, total 12. Collection 18 cents.
After remarks were offered By the

have you with us, make yourself at
home, stay as long as possible and
share our joys. Union City is bliss
for we are dear lovers of the Lord,
Since the good people of Union City
will pay respect If though they fail to
pay present, they will pay last respect
by attending the funeral, in order that
present respect may be paid to two
organizations in our midst, be it. Re
solved, That the press will announce
the funeral of the Y. M. C. A. also the
Red Cross organization to be con
ducted at the next meeting which will
be held in one of our good churches
at the time which will be announced
from all pulpits, Sunday. The funeral
will be preached by Dr. S. H. David,
Obituary read by Prof. A. M. Gilbert
and the whole audience will mourn
their loss. Active pall bearers, Mrs.
H. M. McMakins, Mrs. A. M. Gilbert,

Honorary Rev. Spearman, Rev. Por
ter, Rev. Harris, Rev. Mitchum and
Rev. Mays. Undertakers, Messrs Owen
and Harper. The cause of death is
chills. Let all be present for it will
be a sad gathering. Mr. Bud Hamp
ton who passed through our little city
last week enroute to Luxora, Ark.,
was guest of Mr. and Mrs. J. Hurst,
one night only, and left a testimony
that he was royally entertained. In
order that the good people of Union
City may realize the good thoughts
they are losing by failing to attend
their churches, a gist of a few Divines
sermons are quoted to you as follows:
Rev. Wm. May's subject, "Jesus Only,"
Matthew 17:8, principal thought was
Christ can and will do those things
for us which we cannot do for our
selves. Rev. Bruton's subject, "Build
surely," Matthew 7, principal thought,
he is building surely who makes his
life count the more for His eternity.
Rev. Spearman's subject, "Sowing and
Reaping," principal thought, be ye not
deceived for God is not mocked, what
soever a man soweth, that shall he
also reap. Rev. G. L. Harris, subject,
"The Gift of God," principal thought,
"This God, who is infinite and ineff
able, manifests his oving kindness in
a degree beyond all measure. Rev.
Mitchums subject, "The Fool has said
within his heart, there is no God,"
principal thought, if Jesus Christ be
God and only God, I will follow Him
everywhere. Hence good people, you
may glean glorious treats neglected
by failing to attend church. Now
don't you wish you had have
been there? You should if you don't
and you must; why? To escape the
Satanic Home. Say ministers, are
you telling all your members to take
the Nashville Globe? What, No er-ra
just answer yes or no. Well we shall
postpone this question a week or two
later that you may frame up "yes,"
be sure and have it well greased that
I may swallow it with ease. Rev. W.
H. Porter preached an excellent ser
mon on "Who is my neighbor," Luke
10:29, last Sunday. You should have
been there and heard it for yourself.
Among many of his good thoughts one
is quoted as follows: Calling and
sending disciples to preach and send
ing their reports a Lawyer arose and
said "Good Master, what shall I do
to inherit eternal life?' Jesus said,
"Love the Lord thy God with all thy
heart, soul mind and strength and thy
neighbor as thyself." Who is my
neighbor was the next question? It
was at this point that the eminent
divine inserted an original thought as
supported by the Holy Book, that the
good Samaritan regarded and favor-

likewise. All present regarded his
sermon "Sin killing, soul stirring and
devil driving." He has more good
ones stored away, and one of them
will kill the poison old Satan has In
jected in you; go out and let him treat
your wound. Rev. Q. W. Spearman

after a short visit to Tiptonville, Tenn.,
returned home last week and was
greeted by a host of friends who were
present at the Royal entertainment
given in her behalf. Friends, Mrs.
W. E. Edwards is no better; give her
a call and cheerish the sick. Mrs.
Daisy Dinwiddie also Mrs. Mary
Robinson; your friends request me to
present to you their sincerest regret
and best wishes for a speedy recov
ery. It is true that all the ministers
advocate kindness because it is the
spirit of Christ which means the ex
cellent spirit; and it i? true that
others are saying that kindness will
kill you. I do sincerely trust that
we shall not advocate the wrong idea
by saying your kindness to allow
your neighbor to read your paper, is
really killing my trade. Kindly en
courage him to buy one for himself,
wont you please? For It is necessary
to keep the news going. My! How
agreeably surprised your reporter was
when he walked into the residence of
Mr. and Mrs. A. Gardner and found
there Mr .and Mrs. Richard R. Jones
from Tiptonville. Mrs. Jones is known
to many Union Citians as Miss Willie
Woodie who was a classmate of your
reporter in the city school near twenty
five years ago. Mrs. Jones, you must
pardon me for giving your age as
we are aware of the fact that such
is against the rule of ladies, but we
are so enthused that we want our cus
tomers to know that since it has been
twenty-five years since last we saw
you, we are more thrilled than words
can express. However, Mr. and Mrs.
Jones, in behalf of the good people
of Union City whom we are not re
presenting, as requested, we extend
you a cordial welcome with best wishes
of felicitation with us, enter Into the
Joys- of our lives and be of good cheer.
Mrs. Georgia Hill also Miss Emma
King were seen passing through our
dear little city last week from Hick
man, Ky., to Cairo, 111. Good peo
ple of Union City will you kindly give
our Clairvoyant, Mrs. Willie Birddine
one more hearing. She claims that
your reporter - failed to say enough
in his advertisement of her, so she
has composed her own advertisement
and gave it to me for publication. In
order mat we may gei it exueuy i

write up as handed in to me. It is as

cerely trust this report will be satis

How interesting and delightful the

MR. A. N. JOHNSON.
Nashville, Tenn., editor of The
Mobile Press, member of the National
Negro Press Association.
How wise, and good, and gentle how
gracious and kind. How lovely and
beautiful the character of his flock,
a redeemed company of immortal
spirits. How safe, and happy, and
blessed his flock. How the hope of
future perfected bliss should inspire
with Joy unspeakable and full of
glory and how glorious will be the com
pleted fold of the Saviour in heaven
are the sentiments of Miss Mary
Richardson, who lay helpless with a
keen appetite for a dainty dish which
was prepared by Miss Vira Davenport,
wno stepped in as a God sent as styled
by Miss Richardson. Miss Davenport,
Miss Richardson requested your re
porter to extend courteous thanks in
her behalf, and also urge the com
munity to frequent their visits with
their sick friends since she from ex
perience realize the necessity of such.
Ladies, are you patronizing your hair
dressing business as you should?
Gentlemen are you supporting your
ministers as duty demands you?
Ladies and gentlemen what are you
doing for your news rep'orter? Are
you yourself taking a paper each
week? Are you telling your neigh
bors who are not, that they should?
If you have not, are you going to be
gin now? If so the news will continue
traveling. If not will you kindly find
your reporte ranother . job? .Counting
money is most preferred " False
friends . May we never have friends
who )ike shadows, keep close to us in
the sunshine only to desert us In a
cloudy day or in the night. The man
we love is he who thinks most good
and speaks least ill of his neighbors.
The noblest qualities one can possess
are, charity 'without ostentation and
religion without bigotry. And now
last to the chatterbox, may he give us
a few brilliant flashes of silence Is the
prayer of your humble reporter, for
Christ's sake, Amen. What's in a
name? One of the managers of a
home for destitute colored children
tells a funny Btory about the institu
tion. She went out there to see how
things were getting along, and found
a youngster real dark in complexion,
tied to a bed post, with his hands be
hind him. "What is that boy tied up
there for?" she demanded of the at
tendant. "For lying ma'am" "He is
the worstlst, lyingest nlgges I ever
seen." "what is his name?" George
Washington, Ma'am," was the para
lyzing reply. No more was said, not
even Adieu. To the various ones who
have asked why milk Is so scarce, by
inquiry I was informed that the scar
city of milk is due to the vaccination
of cattle, which prevents use of their
milk. Mr. Charles Bawles was seen
passing through the city last week
touring from Dyer, Tenn., to Tipton-,
ville, Tenn., Also Mr. Hollis Patter-!
son from Dyer, Tenn., to Hickman,
Ky. Mr. Bishum Brown, from Troy,
Tenn., made a pleasant sail to and
from Shuck Switch. Mr. Beatrice
Round took a bird's eye view of ouri
dear little city by way of a flying trip j
from Kenton. A merry trip was '
realized by Mrs. Joseph Barfield from
Algoria, Ark., to Hickman, Ky., And
now quizzing Mrs. Lottie Warford, we
discovered her trip to be a flying one
from Union City to Kenton, Tenn. Mr. j
P. Brown we sincerely trust your trip
from Terrll to Rives, Tenn., will be
both pleasant and successful. Drs.
Walker and Davis, will you please
vaccinate all the teachers in their
right arms so they can't scientifically
use a switch. Pupils. When calling
for news last week, many questions
were asked your reporter, some of
which we style worth while and a few
of which we shall give my view in thiB
Issue. A discussion between two gen
tlemen on manhood and money was
very highly enthused when your re
porter entered a dwelling of our tran
quil city, being asked my views we
promised them in this issue we are
real sorry that we cannot sympathize
with the gentleman who said, money
is the principal thing, therefore get
money. Your reporter says: Money
does not make the man even though
all men do not accept this statement as
true. Manhood is worth decillions of
dollars for its is constantly in demand.
There are positions which nothing
but manhood can fill, although man
hood and money making are not nec
essarily incompatible. The universal
cry in all departments of life' is:
wante a man! Now the next
question asked me is one we style silly
What's the use of paying out so much
money for preaching the gospel when
the people could use this money in
buying something to eat? Now isn't
that a real silly question? And the
funny feature of it is, he did not know
your reporter was a minister or elBe
evidently he would not have asserted
blmself so loollshly. However since
it is a case of speaking tor my Lord,,
we shall attempt to speak with the
same enthusiasm of one who said: I
will lay down my life for my Lord.
Hence my response begins: Mr. Philo
sopher. The power of the Gospel is
f - fr:
an informing power; for it brings
knowledge of momentous questions to
the whole earth. It is a Reforming
power, for it has formed anew the
methods of thought government and
life, wherever it has been preached.
It is a transforming power, tor it
transforms the human heart from a
well of evil to a spring of sweetness
and purity. It is a deforming power,
for its enlightening influence is des
tructive of superstition, untruth and
evil. It is a conforming power, for
its end is the conforming of the de
liverer to the image of Christ. To
make a loug story short, its power is
soul stirring, sin killing, and devil
driving even though It has not as yet
driven the devil out of ou. Mr. Wil
liam regrets very much the departure
of his guest, Mr. Franklin Hamilton,
from Corinth, Miss., who left last week
for Hampton Ohio. Now isn't It cute
in the little Misses ranging between
the ages of 13 and 16 years who or
ganized a club of their own last Wed
nesday? Evidently from some source
the little ladies have gleamed an idea
that in Union there is strength. Young
ladies best wishes and God s speed for
having so noble an aim to transact
business for your divine temple. Raise
all the money you can in all the con
scientious ways you can and give the
same to the church treasurer as soon
as you can and receive praises from
your pastor. Rev. rorter, also his
stewards and members, and a blessing
from on high. Good people of Union
