MISS BONNER RETURNS.

miss Eugenia Bonner, of Favette

dUehtfnl trip to New Orleans, La.,
where she spent a week with Miss
Ssrah Jones, of 1014 Drysden, St.
Miss Bonner was entertained . each
ovenlne by some of the social t-.inhs.
The exercises attendant upon the
hanging of the Service Flag at this
school were Interesting and impres
sive. Rev. Preston Taylor, pastor
of Lee Avenue Christian Church, a
man of much public spirit and in
fluence, delivered the principal ad
dress. Rev. Taylor was a soldier in
the great Civil War, having fought
in some of the important battles in
Virginia. He recited some of- his
experience, and contrasted the de
structive effects of the present war
with the simpler methods of the
War of Secession. He described
the flags of the different nations and
mentioned the flags which ere used
by railroads and other corporations
lor various purposes, the red flag
for danger and the green flag for
safety. Turning to the Service
Flag, he said, "Here we have a new
flag, a Service Flag, which indicates
that twenty-one young men as rep
resented by the stars, have dedicat
ed their lives to the service of their
country." His appeal to- the stud
ents to be Americans, to love the
Hag, to appreciate their citizenship,
to- remain loyal and patriotic, was
a fitting perioration of an excellent

Rev. Smith was a son of Washing

home was Murfreesboro, Tenn.,
where in early life he embraced a
hope in Christ and joined what was
then known as Key Chapel. Very
early in life he began the work of
the gospel ministry and worked hi
way to the front, and it is true to
say he filled some of the leading ap

intendent of the Memphis District,
the same having been entrusted to
his care for three years.
He was very studious in life and
ranked high in the esteem of men
of leading thought. He attended tho
Gammon Theological Seminary, also
finished a course at Walden. He
ever remained a student until
death. Rev. Smith leaves a host of

THE NEGRO'S OPPORTUNITY.
Hampton, Va., Feb. 18. Dr. Hollls
B. Frissell, whose twenty-five years
of constructive work as -principal of
Hampton Institute, the pioneer school
for the industrial training of Negro
and Indian youth, made him known
around the world as an educational
statesman, declared, shortly ' before
his death, a belief in the power and
willingness of the colored people to
meet the food crisis Imposed on the
world by the Great Wlar. He said:
"The crying need of the present time
is an increased food supply. Thous
ands of people on .the' other side are
dying of starvation. 'For years to
come the question of raising suffi
cient food will be one of the great
problems of this country."
Thus spoike Wm. Anthony Avery
recently of the great educator's
iwork. .The National Civic Improve
ment Association of Richmond, Va.,
can bear witness to the above state
ments, says Dr. N. B. Dodson, 'be
cause it is doing a similar work
though in a different way. It has
studied the conditions of labor in the
south with a View of having our
people seeing the necessity of in
creasing their farm acreage for the
coming season. There are thousands
of young men and women in the
south with a burning desire to better
their condition and who will not mi
grate to any other section of the
country if they are given a fair
chance at home.
The war has given them the op
portunity to become independent pro
ducers and independent workers at
good wages. Now, then this is the
time for the colored people to get a
lasting foothold of the soil so tnat
when the war is over they will be
masters of the situation. These are
pome of the lessons the Civic Asso-
i nation is endeavoring to teach.
