FISK UNIVERSITY MOZART
The "Song of Hiawatha" which is
to be sung by the Mozart Society.
April 2tith at 8:30 o'clock in . Fisk
Memorial Chapel, is a story by Long
fellow, told in verse, havig for its
hero, Hiawatha, a boy and man of
wonder, in the traditions of the Indian
tribes of the north.
Coleridge Taylor was attracted by
the story, the peculiar rhythiri of the
poetry, and by the curious names of
the characters, which he would roll
out with intense appreciation . of
their sound values. "The essential
beauty of the poem," he said, "is
its naive simplicity, unaffected ex
pression and unforced idealism." He
committed the poem to memory, and
lived with the words until they bo
came a part of himself. Mr. W. H.
Richardson comes from Boston to
take the part of Hiawatha. Adv.

TRAGIC DEATH OF PROMINENT
The tragic death of Mrs. E. Elbert,
well known cltzien, and Miss H. M.
Lowe, soprano singer of tho Fisk
Jubilee Singers, who lived at Nash
ville, on last Wednesday night cast
a. gloom throughout the city. They
were victims of ptomaine poison,
having eaten canned goods on Sun
day evening. Not realizing the seri
ousness of their illness, it is thought
they neglected to call a physician
Twenty-four hours after. Dr. Taylor
was called and then Dr. W. C. Cor
don, Dr. E. C. Nelson, Dr. R. N. Ar
thurton and Dr. Dudson. They
worked and used all the resources of
medical science, but the deadly
poison had done its work, and Wed
nesday night both Mrs. Elbert and
Miss Lowe expired.
Very strangely Mr. Myers, who is
manager of the Fisk Jubilee Singers
and his wife partook of this same
meal but escaped the fate of the
others. Mrs. Cooper, the mother of
Mrs. Elbert, had a close cull but at
this writing indications are she will
recover. From California Eagje.
LAID TO REST.
' March 30th 1918, Jimmie Mitchell
departed from this life. He was a
Christian, he professed a hope in
Christ at the age of fourteen years.
He was president of the Shiloh Lodge
No. 218. A class leader at the Metho
dist church. His illness lasted about
fourteen weeks, he said that he was
ready and willing to go, he suffered
so much he would be better off if he
was dead. The Lord knows the best
it was hard for us to give him up, but
all was born to die. A man that is
born of a woman but few days to
stay here and they are full of trouble.
He leaves a wife and one child,
mother, father, two sisters to mourn
their loss and a host of friends. We
hope to meet him in the sweet bye
and bye. Child, James Wesley
Mitchell, wife, Ellen, mother, Mary

We thank Mr. Preston . Scales for
his assistance with the deceased one.

a quiet home affair, only the family
and close personal friends attending.
The reception, however, was largely

WIN THE WAR BY WORKING SIX
DAYS PER WEEK.
The time worn custom of observing
Saturday, or part of it, as a holiday
has almost become a law in the
South, especially among farmers.

demonstration agents for the State

ness of the stuggle; and
Whereas, every agency should be
utilized to arouse our people and
I secure the co-oneration of the white

Resolved, that' the colored farm
demonstration agents working in the
state of Alabama from themselves
into an organization to be known as
the "U. S. (Uncle Sam's) Saturday
Service League" and that campaign
throughout the State be instituted to
conserve farm labor to help meet the

nothing less than criminal. ,
In order to successfully carry on
this, propaganda we must have the
confidence and secure the co - opera -
tion of all the people. For example,
first in order to make up the defl -
clency in farm labor, the farmers
will have to work longer hours and
six days per week. Second, the
landlords will be called upon to in
crease wages. Third, the merchants
will have to fore-go some of the usual
Saturday trade. Unless the three
above agencies co-ordinate, it is
realized that every little can be ac -
The method adopted by the U. S
Saturday Service League for further-

State, is through posters, registra-

ten or fifteen days a series of sug -

into a closer bond of sympathy and un
derstanding and it is my sincere be
lief that, when conditions are read
justed, ours will be a better and
stronger country. Members of the
race throughout the country are co
operating with the white people in
local Red Cross, Food, Liberty Bond,
Fuel and Thrift Stamp Campaigns
and through these new relationships,
there will come increasing opportuni
ties for demonstrating the race's
value as a civic and economic asset.
I have been especially proud of the
recognition which has come to our
newspapers. Tho various publicity
bureaus at Washington are sending
out their material to our papers just
as to papers published by other people,
and it is interesting to note that some
of the leading advertising men of
the nation are Identified with these
bureaus at Washington. After the
war it is more than likely that these
men wil not forget the valued co-opera'
tion that the Negro newspapers are
giving now, and will give careful at
tention to their merits in making up
lists of papers for national advertisers,
It will be a long step forward when
national advertisers begin ' to ask,
"How much wil it cost to reach the
colored people through their leading
The "signs of the times" are slgnl

Clipping Bureaus are clipping editor

becoming more and more important
to the men who control the political
and commercial destiny of this nation.
The National Negro Business League
has been a powerful factor in keeping

before the public.
Tuskegee Institute, Ala., Some
times, I think it remarkable how the

able to give the Local Leagues and to
the business men of the race, such
valuable and important suggestions.
Sometimes ago a pamphlet of sugges

tains the following very Interesting
statistics. I am quoting briefly from
"Commercial statistics and my own
experiences of more than twelve years
In the bankruptcy court proved that
out of every hundred men in business
today, about twenty-five will fail
within five years. Fifty will fail in
ten years, and hi twenty years less
than a dozen will have succeeded out
of the original one hundred.
"If nine out of ten fail, what as
surance have you that you will be
the lucky tenth?
"The life of the retail business is
reported to be only six years." And
again his article proceeds as follows:
"Very often tho man who paid cash
for his first stock makes subsequent
purchases on credit. Money realiz
ed from the sale of the first goods
enables him to meet bills for the other
and have some left over. He thinks
what is loft over is profit, but most of
it is original Investment. Little by
little he lives up to his first invest
ment entirely and gets further and
further in debt. Then the awakening
comes with a crash.
"Don't just think you are making
money get the facts, for that sup
posed profit may actually be a loss.
