More than twenty thousand Sun
day schools, located In every portion
of the United States, supported by
their churches under the denomina
tional and race-loving pastors have,
so to speak, with one accord, been
favored with orthodox denomination
al literature from the only Negro
Baptist printing, Publishing and
Book Binding establishment in the
United States. The National Baptist
Publishing Board's plant, located at
Nashville, valued at over $350,
000.00. has demonstrated the con
structiveness of the Negroes of the
United States. It has been the
means of furnishing employment to
more than one hundred and fifty
members of the race. It produces its
own literature from the printers
devil work up to the editor's desk.
The Negroes in this plant can operate
and manipulate the most rdellcate
an intricate piece of machinery that
has been thrown upon the market.
Kour 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 of 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 of 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 tar exceeded
the most exaggerated predictions.
More perhaps than any other one
agency contributing to the plant's
success has been the guiding hand of

The new year has brought many

days after the death of his wife, he
was also a member of Bluff Spring
Baptist for 42 pears and Treasurer
for 41 years. He leaves seven sons
and three daughters and a host of
relatives and friends to mourn her
loss. Rev. J. II. Dawson officiated
at both funerals, text, "I have done

"Boyd's Pastors' Guide," that was
adopted by the National Baptist Con

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

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 jobs 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 occasion to refer to the success of
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 employees of
the National Baptist Publishing
Board who furnished the jubilee
singing at the great auditorium on
tnat night, mey sang the songs
written by Negroes, printed on
presses operated by members of the
race, and Dr. Washington spoke be

at the same institution.
