OUR WIFE'S BEAN PATCH.
She planted long before it was time,
somewhere in the middle of March
when she caught a day that was
warm and balmy. She pulverized the
ground right good, laid out the rows
with extra precision and then she
planted some Kentucky wonder beans,
covered them nicely and awa'i'ed
their germination. Some how ir
other those beans came up smilirg,
and are up yet with abeyance. Thev
have mastered all sorts of frostv and
nowy weather without any kind of
protection and see at this hour look
ing as green as green can be, strong,
taeathly and are making a very vehe
ment growth despite the vicissitudes
of unseasonable weather. Now we in
vite all of our near and dear friends
to give our wife's bean patch the once
over. That bean patch met and knock
ed out every frost, freeze, and snow
that has tried to sneak up behind it
and take undue advantage of its ear
liness and verdancy. It landed a solar
plexus on the snow storm of the 10th.
inst, and the said snow storm went
down with a dull sickening thud. And,
onlv a few days before that blamed
hean patch stood up against Mr. Jack
Frost unprotected, and made Mr.
Frost take the count in six rounds.
Hail has n" terrors for this bean
patch. Why doggone, if it don't stand
squarely up flat footed and put to
route any hail or sleet that tries to put
one over in the 3rd Ward.
This bean patch wo siirmi-ie, hns
survived the turmoils and strife of
March and early April, and wo opine
will settle down now strictly to the
business of making a J'ean crop for
(he mistress. We anticipate with sali
vary gusto, the day when friend wife
pan in hand will gather the first mess
of her beans. There will be much
rejoicing in our household on that
stupendous festive occasion. We are
nure we shall be delegated to buy the
old ham hock for that triumphant
time which we shall do with the
proudest pleasure of our life. And
then when the fateful moment has
arrived, the beans well done, flanked
by young onions,, cold butter milk,
and corn bread, we are called to the
feast 0, joy; 0. eternal bliss, O, rap
. tures of raptures! we shall forget all
of those who have done things to us
they should not have done. We shall
not speak unkindly even of the fellow
ho owes us four dollars and refuses
to pay. We'll cheerfully forgive that
genteel gentleman who called us an
unmitigated liar. Yes, we'll forget and
forgive and think only of heavenly
and beautiful things, of the "land
that is fairer than this, of the golden
streets, of the new Jerusalem," and
apeak softly to our wife saying
"please pass the beans."
THE PRESIDENTIAL BEE.
If Col. Roosevelt is playing for the
presidency, so is McAdoo. The Globe
has no objection to the entertaining
of, a presidential ambition by the pres
ent secretary of the treasury. The
fact that he is Mr. Wilson's son-in-law
does not strike, this newspaper as
iielne of any consequence. From the
present outlook, it is hard to see how
he can be deprived of the democratic
nomination in 1920 if he still wants
it. While he does not possess certain
of the magnetic qualities of the typi
cal politician, that affects merely his
availability, not his merit. Distribu
tion of McAdoo's addresses to the
American soldiers in France is hardly
a proper activity of the government
,-t this time, but then few of
things that the committee on public
Information does are beyond criticism,

The agreeable news came to us that
the City Park Commission was beauti
fying Hadley Pnrk. This is as it
should be. The park has been the
laughing stock of our out of town
visitors. There has been nothing
parkesque about it, just an old worn
out corn field devoid of shrubbery and
flowers, nothing enticing, nothing to
make a fellow want to spend an after
noon in its confines. We trust the
news of the improvements are true,
and that the good work will continue
until we have a beautiful park. We
believe if the matter is put right
snuarely up to the park commission,
that these gentlemen will do the right
bins by making the park a place of
tioauty which will compare favorably
with the Xegro parks in other cities.
Let the good work go on until sweet

Mng ignoramuses to kiss the flag. "We
need sanity as well as patriotism."

Intimated that the railroads are fall

Telling speeches were made by all
three of these gentlemen, who spoke
of the causes leading up to the war,
the part that the Negroes have always
played in all the great wars in which
their country was involved, citing the
wars, and valorous deeds, and urged
the colored people to see to it that
the record be worthily sustained by
doing well their part In the army, in
the field, in the conservation of food,
and other, and along all other lines
of industrial endeavor that will prove
sane and helpful to our Country in
winning this great world war. This
community, the Gravel Hill neigh
borhood, is composed exclusively of
colored, having inherited their tracts
of land from their forefathers who i
settled in the early part of the last
century. Some of these fanners, are

Director of the Mozart Society at

School Choral Union will be able to

The faculty and students appreciate
this act ot kindness, on the part of
Prof. Work, who left his work at

necessary to teach the Union this
song. The students hope by the time
Commencement arrives to be able to

H. ANDERSON SELECTED
At a recent business meeting of the
Senior Class, George II. Anderson
was selected as official photographer
for the class of 1918. Mr. Anderson
has improved greatly in the art of
making pictures since coming to
Nashville and the Committee on
Photographs was very much im
pressed with his styles and prices.
It is stated that Dr. P. G. Smith, the
principal will introduce an Innova
tion this year in regard to the time
of taking the pictures. Heretofore,
the pictures have not been taken un
til after the last examination and
until candidates for graduation knew
whether they had passed or not and
were entitled to graduation. The
large class group was then styled the
graduating class. This has caused
hurried sittings and a great rush to
get photographs completed. Dr.
Smith, now has in contemplation the
taking of all candidates for gradua
tion who are in their last year and
calling the group the Senior Class.
This will permit pictures to be taken
and the group placed on exhibition
ALUMNI MEMBERSHIP CAMPAIGN
The response to the call sent out
by Mrs. Edwina Smith Johnson, the
president of the Pearl High School
Alumni Association, fot new mem
bers, has been very gratifying. Many
of the graduates, who have married
and moved to distant states have sent
letters enclosing a membership fee,
because they wished to have a part
in the purchase of the stage curtain
and the victrola. Among these were
Mrs. Carrie Bryant Johnson of At
lanta, Ga., Dr. W. B. Davis, of Chat
tanooga, and Dr. Ira Watson of
Lewisburg, Tenn. Mrs. Lizzie Allen

THE APRIL HIGH SCHOOL VOICE.
The April issue of the High School
Voice is out and is, possibly the best
number of the paper that has been
issued. Too much credit cannot be
given to Mr. George Gore, the editor,
and his associates for the great effort
they are exerting to make the school
paper a success. Recently the editor
and Mr. Leslie Howell made a trip
to the Hume-Fogg High School where
thev called upon the editor ot the
"High School Echo," the school paper
ot the white High School. The boys
claim that they were kindly received
and were shown every coutesy, with
an offer of whatever assistance they
might need in the way of suggestions,
helpful advice, or the benefit of past
experience, to make the "Voice" a
greater success. 'The Hume-Fogg
Echo was organized eighteen years
ago and is now recognized as one of
the best high school magazines in the
country, Let's hope that after the
lapse of eighteen years, the Pearl

Mr. Arthur Allen Sykes died Wed

give him up, but let us all think for
a moment. The good Lord knows
what is best. He was a loving and
obedient son the kind that abides
not long unon earth. He leaves a
mother, father, four brothers and five
sisters and a host of relatives and
friends. 'The funeral Rervlce waB
held at Hubbard Chanel and was
conducted by Revs. H. L. P. Jones,
Stoner, Bagness and Jordan. Eight
hoy friends served as pall-bearers.
