needs of an organization in their
midst which proposes to aid and
assist each and all of its members in
time of trouble, sickness and death.

broken down under the sad thought
and fear that poor little Fannie per

in the dark woods alone, and the
hight so chilly and cold. But way,
by and by in the darkness, after a
long search as God would have it
little Fannie was found quite a dis
tance from the house crouched
down beside a brushpile, where she
had huddled down to spend the night.
She was crying easily and was al
most asleep. She was taken up in
the arms of her uncle George Mc-
Lain and was carried to her mother.

that was pulled off last Saturday was
a success In every particular, even

head of this department a large ban
ner was carried with the following
wording: Gallatin colored auxiliary,

Monday at twelve. He was the finest
example of the self made man we
have ever known. He was in the

ductor on a northern railroad. He
was commanding in appearance,
soldierly in bearing, and an ardent
lover of his race. He was born here
and made annual visits to his mother.
He was greatly admired by all who
knew him and the race has lost a
useful and an exemplary citizen. His
life will be an inspiration to every
young man who knew him. The

THE MEHARRY NEWS.
April 22, 1918.
Fellow Alumni: Another eventful
year is added to the history of our
Alma Mater. Our Service Flap:, pre
sented to the institution is marked
by one hundred and eleven bright
stars, representing Major, Captains
and First Lieutenants. The Ten
Thousand Dollars pledged has been
paid in, with the exception of about
five hundred dollars, not yet collect
ed. The next annual meeting will be
held April 29th, 1918, at 3 o'clock
p. in., in the Freshman room at the
College. Come and join with us.

,T. A. LESTER, M. D., Secretary.
The above letter is self-explanatory.
Wherever it is read the more
than two thousand graduates sent out
by the Meharry Colleges will fondly
turn their hearts towards their
Alma Mater. Many will return to
witness the business session of the
Association and the graduating exer
cises which will take place May tfth
at the Ryman Auditorium. The Me
harry Alumni Association was or
ganized in 1895. The late Drs. II. T.
Noel and R. F. Boyd were among the
first presiding officers. Some of the
most distinguished men of our race
are members of bur Alumni Associa
tion. They are loyal to their Alma
Mater and delight to express their
loyalty whenever an opportunity is
!-iven. Dr. Joseph S. Dickson of
Jackson, Tenn., made provisions in
his will by which Meharry College
came in possession of all of his ef
fects, both real and personal.
From the estate of Dr. R. F. Boyd
the institution received gifts. But
the most hopeful sign Is the fact that
some who now live give of their sub
stance to help foster the work. The
handsome gift of $10,000 by Dr. J.
W. Anderson and wife of Dallas,
fTexas, stands as a worthy monument
to the loyalty of the sons and daugh
ters of dear old Meharry. Then
followed the $10,000 pledged by the
alumni throughout the country. With
the exception of about $500, this sum
has been sent in and this, too, at
tests to the loyalty of our alunii,:

The graduating class in Pharmacy
honored themselves by honoring the
Wm. Sevier Socioty of Pharmacy.
The entire department assembled in
their hall and sat in wailing one
morning for the arrival of Dr. Wm.
Sevier, vho for twenty years and
more has given his time and talents
to the development of this depart
ment. As the genial Doctor came in
his attention was callel to the beau
tiful charter which gracefully hung
on tho wall in the reception room.
A formal program of presentation
and short addresses followed. Then
came the Doctor's appropriate speech
of acceptance. Dr. Sevier was over
come with emotion as he spoke
.words of appreciation to the young
people, who thus so signally honored
him. Be it said to the credit of Dr.
Sevier that the department of Phar
macy at 'Meharry Is in a large meas
ure a worthy product Of his faithful
efforts. Some of the men who own
and operate the best drug stores
amonc our people throughout this
Southland are men and women who
sat under the efficient instruction ot
this ftireless worker. In this city,
Chattanooga, Knoxville. Clarksville,
Jackson, Humboldt, ' Brownsville and I
Memphis in Tennessee, In Alabama,
Qeorgia. South . Carolina, Florida,
Louisiana, Texas, Missouri, Kansas,
Oklahoma, Kentucky and nearly
everywhere our people own and
operate first-class drug stores, the
men and women had theii lessons
under the tutelage of Dr. Sevier.
The charter is beautifully and
uniquely planned as follows: At the
bottom the members of the senior
class in i.harmacy for 191 have their
names beautifully insf-ribed. Just
above these names appear the names
of the officers ot the organization. To
the left of the names of the officers
is drawn artistically atpair of scales
representing Justice and to the ri.eht
a mortar and pestle. Just above the
names of otlleers. is a large, bold
eagle with outstretched wings and
bearing in its talons "Old Glory"
and just above the outstretched
wings of the swift flyiiis eacle, the
photo of Dr. Sevier crowns this
beautiful charter. The work of art
is quite as significant as the pood
will which inspired the act.
Class Night Exercises of the
Friday nteht, April 19th, was an
exceedingly popular occasion for the
Graduating classes at tho Meharry
Colleges. The large auditorium was
elaborately decorated with flags and
bunting representing the college
colors. At tho rear or the piatlorm

in one of tho letters submitted In

interesting account of Negro business
Politeness has piled up $100,000
for John Murreau Maxwell, age 37,
Orangeburg. South Carolina. Starting
in 1904 with politeness and $200.00,
Maxwell fixed the gaze of by trade
by these means:
1. He always smiles.
2. He sells some more without
obnoxiously seeming to "corner"
3. He makes vou know your bill
is becoming a "bad debt" without
scolding. "What is your bill"? he
asks, hoping you will agree politely.
4. He is politely interested in
every one's personal affairs, knowing
whose babies are sick, who needs
charity, who needs a teacher, or a
new horse and where to obtain them.
5. He learns even his customers'
voices over the phone. "Maxwell's
grocery," he replied to a ringmce.
"Mr. Maxwell," called a lady. "Yes,
Miss Massey," came the instant re
6. Nothing is never "out" in
theory at least at Maxwell's. He
goes personally to every grocer in
town to find a promised article, if
7. Trained under the veteran col
ored grocer, E. H. Dibble, Camden,
South Carolina, who is known ns "the
politest man In town," and who has
piled up $100,000 by the same
method, Maxwell seems to treat even
a female cat with extraordinary
courtesy. He takes off bis hat to
talk to a ladv over the phone, and
never sits while a ladv is in his store.
RESULTS: (a) That $100,000
afore mentioned, gleaned in 13 years;
(b) Ability to sell several "Maxwell's
Specials" because of large orders
given; (c) When the war cry sound
ed, Maxwell contracted, among other
things for 500 tons of lard and 100
tons of cotton seed meal.
