the hearts ot all. Mrs. Percy Maddln
was on the scene immediately, 'Mrs.

not requiring hospital attention, and
letters were written and sent to their

S B Burnette, pastor, and staged one
V t'le greatest meetings In the his

-The Board realized with all of the
y.v, men of draft age being called
i:. the colors, and that we are giving
; o'ir country the very flowers of
n: n hood of the race, to help win the
war for a world wide democracy, the
vo' principles tor which the Bap
tist stands for; a Government in
which the power is vested in all the
People. In giving to our country
these men, among them are some of
the best prepared men of the race,
ourg men of high. Christian charac-
That fifty cents would have provid
ed many small comforts for him;
comforts which others would deem
necesfilt s, perhaps. Yet inspired by
what he saw the 'Red Crou ladies
doing for the boys ot his race, and
the spirit and dignity and fellowship
accompanying the service, he gave
what he had, and apologized for not
having more to give."
The editor of this column has a
theory that the man of that type is
not "fooled;" he has lived so close
through all his experiences of war of
other days, and since to fundamen
tals, that he haa a spiritual discern
ment. He knew those women had the
right spirit, and the Nashville Pub
city quotas him here because of a
belief that testimony from his type
is reliable; it is of the soul!
District of Columbia Chapter.
' The sum of $32.50 realized from a
benefit luncheon given by a colored
'woman whose husband is In military
service, hais been donated to the
Home Service Section of the Ameri
can Red Cross, according to Mrs.
Walter S. Ufford, executive secretary
of the District of Columbia Home
Service Section of the American Red
"You were gpod to me when I was
sick.' and' I want to do something for
the others now that I am able," was
the way the woman expressed her de
sire to help. "After the woman's hus
band .volunteered, the extra work
caused a complete breakdown," said
Mrs. unorq, and tuberculosis de-
ve oped. Treated in the early stages
she rapidly Improved and determined
to help the Red Cross. This is the
second conrtibution that she has given
to us as proceeds from benefit lunch
eons that she has conducted. She has
also given a contribution for the sol
diers' tobacco fund."
Chattanooga Chapter Auxiliary.
The woman who is head of the col
ored Red Cross work In Chattanooga,
Tenn., is an enthusiastic and efficient
worker in all war-renef agencies, ac
cording to Bishop Lamhuth. nf tho
(Methodist Episcopal Church, South.
Her rawer, who is a Negro or wealth,
had donated fifty head of cattle and
sheep to the American Red Cross.
The proceeds of the sale of the cat
tle and sheep will be used for the
furtherance of work in the state and
for the purchase of Red Cross sup
plies. "FAST BLACK WON'T RUN."
The following serious anecdote is
told' by a Government offld'al just
back from France:
"To one encampment where there
were 5,000 Negroes, Gen. Pershing
isent word that he wanted 1,500 men
for a particular dangerous feat. So
thy lined up the 5,000 and asked
every man who was willing to vol
unteer to take one step forward. The
whole 5,000 stepped one step forward
and they had to select the 1,500.
Then the men shouted the slogan:
"Fast , black won't run ! "
ter. The people of this country
ought to doff their hats to Rev. E.
W. D. Isaac, the National Secretary
of the B. Y. P. U. and Rev. H. A.
Boyd, the National Secretary of the
Sunday School Congress. These men
are giving their lives in trying to
raise our young people to a higher
standard in Christian activity. They
have sown better than they know,
for we have young missionaries in all
of the camps, who are conducting
Sunday school and B." Y. P. U. and
reaching men that we know not of.
We ought to rejoice over this mact,
and be encouraged to come to the
convention with renewed vigor.
We hope that every Baptist Sun
day school and B. Y. P. U. in Nash
ville and throughout the State will
represent this year, forgetting the
things that are behind us. Let us
sorrell our forces for education and
Mission. Every Sunday school and
B. Y. P. U. is asked to send $10.00
for Education and Mission. Let there
be no slackers. '

MR. AUSTIN YOUNG.
Dear Friends: I lived in Tennessee
for eight years and. conducted a pros
perous business while there, although
not knowing then what I know today,
was not looking for the good class
of my people and mingled among the
class that has caused me to weep and
be sorrowful. But, when I see the
good work that you of my race are
doing, It makes me rejoice. Yes, It
Ymakes me look to the God of heav
ens to fix me so when the time comes
that I can come into the world again
and try life over again, I will know
what life means to a man. i am in
the "Dark World" alone, God is my
hope and heaven shall be my home.
I am trying to bring this great mass
of men to the light. When your pa
per comes to me (as you know there
are some that are unable to subscribe
for it) I am glad to let them have It
and tell them about it and what you
are doing among "Our Race.''
I want the world to know that I
am a "prisoner," who found Christ,
and when I get out into the- world
again, "Christ's Word will I carry un-
tU I (llC.
I a'" a presser and barber by trade.
I am ihankful that I am allowed to
work at the pressing trade.
On June 30, 1918, Prof. James H.
Lyons, of the Kentucky Sta'e Normal
Institute and students, ten in num
ber, visited us. We were inspired by
their vocal ability In tholr rendition
of many Bonus. The feature of their
visit' was the recitation by one of
the ladies of one of her self-composed
poems entitled, "The Waters of the
Allies." It was a rare treat to the
hearts of our fellow-inmates as her
words sank deep into our hearts.
