Other thing being equal, the mau
who wins is the man who smiles.
Like mercy. a smile is twice blessed.
It blesseth him that gives and hi-n
that receives. A .mile is a member
of the mercy family, and falls heir to
a full share of mercy's fortune.
Every sentient thins Irom crying
child to lost dog reaches out to the
mortal who smiles a 10o per cent
smile. The World cries for good
humor. It has never yet had a full
supply of it. It will neevr have au
oversupply. because good nature cre
ates an unlimited demand for itself.
A man may "smile and smile and
be a villain still;- but such a smile
finally takes on a grinning fox trap
quality that fools few. It was this
villain who originated the proverb
about molasses catching more flies
than vinegar. And so it does. It
also puts more fat on the lean ribs
of the world. The federal govern
ment recognizes this. Wc are called

takes more oats to keep an ill-tempered
horse than one of cheerful dis
position. If there is anything not smile wor
thy in this world, it mny be traced to
an unsmilable mortal. When th
world was finished the Creator pro
nounced it 'good," In spite of the fact
that it contained at that very time
the ancestors of the present-day cut
worms, mosquitoes and sandburrs.
May not these things have been cre
ated for the purpose, of provoking
humanity to good works?

NEGRO PRESS ASSOCIATION.
And it would be perfectly superflu
ous to say to the boys ol the associ
ation, that they are welcome to Nash
ville. They know it, and feel it. Yes,
we aie profoundly glad to have you
here. Make yourselves at home, take
a chair, draw up to the table, ana
help yourself. What will you have to
drink, tea. coffee, or milk? Serious
ly, we are obsessed with the feeling,
that your meeting will be fruitful, of
much pool to the upbuilding of Negro
Journalistic Ambitions. We know you
will devise ways and means to make
the Negro press a potent factor In
the affairs of the Nation. The Negro
needs you to fight his battles for
right, and Justice, and we are sure
you are on the firing line.
JUDGE NEIL IS RIGHT.
Judge Nell, of the Criminal Court,
did the proper thing (Monday when he
delivered a vigorous special charge
to the grand Jury concerning the per
nicious activities of some petty of
ficials who make it their business to
harrass and annoy the laborers em
ployed at the Radnor railroad yards,
especially along about pay davs.
Judge Nell instructed the Grand
Jury to Ignore all cases brought be
fore them by these pestiferous fee
grabbing minions. These leeehwi
have done more to depopulate Nash
ville and contingent territory of.de-
irable Negro labor than any other
agency. They hound, brow-beat
and manhandle the Negro to such
an extent, that the black man bun
dles up hi3 few belongings and hies
himself to a more peaceable tone,
there he has at least the right to
draw his breath. These deputies and
constables hae made life a verita
ble hell for the unoffending, and all
just for the sake of the illegal fees
they wormed out of hjm. There has
been a steady outflow ot honest anil
dependable Negro labor from the city
causod'solely by the rank and stupen
dous injustice that has been th ir
portion, at the han;ls of these of-
(Vials. We are truly .uhul that the I
learned criminal judge lias come to!
the relief of the downtrodden an! I
sincerely trust that ho will ffectu-1
ally check these unwarranted abuses. I
Let us hope that Judge Neil will
put them where the wicked shall
cease from troubling.
THE CASTOR OIL INVENTOR.
There has lived in no age of the
world a man so devoid of the things
which go to make up the Ideals cf
life as the man who invented Castor
He is foe to the "finer feelings of
the soul" and to nature's most holy
and tenderest ties. A heartless re
negade, lie is a relentless adversary
of rest sweet rest, and a demoniacal
enemy of sleep. The man who in
vented castor oil is a villain of the
deepest ray serene, having no
thought, no care for the nocturnal
comfort of his peers. He is an arch
conspirator of the peace and good
will of the community, lie ha3 weak
ened more people than all the bullets
of the Kaiser's army. Ho is an un
mitigated evil, being lit only for
treason, strategem and spoils. He is
an alien enemy to all the people, at
all times, and all places. He makes
you to have a close conception ot
nature in the wee small hours of the
night, in the coldest kind of weather
You study the stars and the constel
lation of the milky, way only through
the connivance of the inventor of
castor oil. He makes you step lively
and be in a hurry much against your
will. He has caused you to very ab
ruptly bid your best girl "good night"
leaving her bewildered as to the rea
son why. He has caused untold com
plications in the world of love, let
ters and finance. He asks no quarter
and gives none. IThe man who in
vented castor oil i3 a despicable
montebank, and a helluva fellow.
Away with him, away with him!

'Rev. W. A. C. Hughes, of the Meth
odist Episcopal Church, reports that
it is customary for all the district
superintendents to encourage all pas
tors to make a food conservation re

the number of hogs raised and the
number of cans of fruit as well as
the amount of vegetables conserved
by their members and themselves.
To those who like griddle cakes
and yet do not want to use fats for

Corn, once upon a" time, was al

to eat corn bread, but how times
have changed! In the exclusive tea
rooms which formerly served wheat

demand for corn bread, corn griddle
cakes, mush, etc.. and little or no
call for pastry made of wheat,' , or
Before you buy some of the foods
which you are asked to use sparingly-,
stop and think that your demands for
such foods are apt to cause- some of

States) or the civilized world.

A number of wealthy women or
New York City have pledged their
households to live on voluntary food
conservation rations until the war is
over. They have started a campaign
to get their wealthy frionds to sign
the same pledge. This instance of
tho rich people, who have the most
and can spare the most, agreeing to
do more than the country expects of
each individual citizen, is most grati
fying. We trust that Mrs. Housewife wi'l
not buy more food than she" would
have bought before the war, that is
that she will not hoard food, which
is unlawful. It is to be hoped that
she will buy just enough of that
which is needed and not pay any at
tention to the current rumors that
there will be a serious shortage of
food. Most of the "shortage of food"
was due to faulty distribution due to
railroad trouble and to buying more
food than was necessary for ordinary
needs. Our advice is to buy the
usual amount of food and the United
States Food Administration will see
that there is sufficient food available
for all of us, thus preventing hard
ships. Hoarding of bought foods In the
house is selfish and not necessary.
We do not refer to those families
who have helped the food situation
of the country and the world by
drying, canning or preserving foods
in the home during the previous
season. The food situation would
have been worse had it not been for
tho preservation of vegetables and
fruits in the homes, and the people
are to be urged to do so again.
A number of the colleges of the
South are organizing their students
Into clubs for the study of food con
servation, so as to be able to help
the people on their return from
school. Dr. Joseph A. Booker," Pres
ident ot the Arkansas Baptist Col
lege, Little Rock, Arkansas, declares
that the students of today must play
an important part in helping the peo
ple and serving their government.
"Interest the students," said Dr.
Booker, "and you will be rendering
a great service to your country.
Some of our people claim that they
do not understand food conserva
tion, and they must be taught. They
will not have to spend years in col
lege, but Just a few talks by those
who are trained in our schools will
do the work."
The Sub-Committee of Manage
ment of the Grand United Order of
Odd Fellows at its recent meeting In
Philadelphia, decided to postpone its
Biennial Movable Committee (B. M.
C.) meeting as a patriotic duty. The
Sub-Commltee felt that at this time
of urgent need, the order should not
take members away from their work
and cause them to spend the money
necessary for the meeting, nor tax
the already overburdened railroads
with' the thousands, who always , at
tend these meetings. . 'Moreover
there was a sentiment against hold
ing the usual banquets and dinners
now. when, food conservation is so
necessary. It voted ; also to
rarrv through a food conservation
campaign until all the 650,000 mem
bers ot the Older are doing their bit
at the table.

charge of Miss Harrison, the kinder
gartner at the Bethlehem House who
made a very interesting talk on the
work she is trying to accomplipsh
with the children. In a general way,
she mapped out her program for the
different months, having some special
plan for each month. In her stories
and in the games and the handwork
during that month, the plan was
worked out. At the conclusion ol
her talk, she requested the members
of the Mother's Club to lay aside
their cares and the weight ot years
and become little children just for
the evening. She met with a hearty
response and every mother present
drew her chair up on the circle and
took' part ' in the games that ; were

his country by the draft act. He was
in training at Camp Lee where he con

disease, January 29. Though a new
teacher in our schools, he had en

In the history of the schools has a

is due to her splendid attainments,

elected teacher ot Domestic Art in the

Mortal friend, be thou at rest, -Your

You are numbered with the blest,,
May thou now rest in peace.
The paths of life,' thou has trod,
Thy foot-prints are left in sight;
May your bereaved look to God,
That He may guide aright.
When you were as we are now,
A beacon light for all;
And taught thy children how to bow.
And on their Saviour call.
Ho Is willing waiting and watching,
To hear an earnest call,
And will bestore his blessed fortune,
If He be all and all.
