Caught a Hold, Which Near! De
veloped Into Pneumonia
Says Lung-Vita Will Break Any
"I contracted a severe cold and
cough while on the front end of a
street car during the sereve weather
we had this winter," says Mr. W. A.
eGorge, who lives at 1418 Greenwood
avenue, Nashville, Tennessee in his
statement given January 28, 1918. "I
was In such shape that I was hardly
able to work and came near having
pneumonia. I tried a number of
remedies and the doctor, but did not
improve any until I began using Lung
Vita. In three days I felt much bet
ter notwithstanding the fact that Ihe
weather was awful. Now the cold Is
broken, cough all gone, and I Just
feel fine. I know that Lung-Vita did
the work in my case and believe it Is
the finest medicine In the world for
coughs and colds."

Thfa war is to be won not by one-
uuui or one tnousand men or one mil
lion men, or one million people. It Is
to be won by the united efforts of the
individuals of many nations.
Every American citizen has an In
dividual duty to perform, an Individ
ual ehare of the responsibility. The
more powerful and effective the
American forces are the shorter will
be the war, and the shorter the war
the fewer lives lost, the greater the
number of American soldiers who will
return, home victorious.
n-very American who economizes In
consumption of material, who In-'

something to help win the war
THE RAILROAD ADMINISTRATION
AND THE FARMERS.
The United States Railroad 'Admin
istration has established a depart
ment to be known as the agricultural
section, whose particular duty will be
to look after the relation between the
railroads and the Department of Agri
culture. Its purpose is to give all
possible assistance to the agricultural
development of the country. The ex-
tension work of the Department of
Agriculture and the stimulation of
agriculture, especially in relation to
transportation, wlill he assisted as
much as possible by the new section.
MUST INSURE SAILORS.
The appearance of the German sub
marines in American waters has caus
ed Secretary McAdoo to issue an order
requiring all American shipowners to
have insured the lives of the officers
and crews of their vesisels trading in
. Atlantic and Gulf waters. Mere fish
ing vessels are excepted."
Heretofore the compulsory insur
ance applied only to American, ves
sels trading between the United States
and various European and certain des
ignated African ports.
The rates the Treasury charges for
the insurance varies from half a cent
per 1100 of insurance for Atlantic
coastwflse trips to 15 cents per $100
for steamers crossing the war zone

THE SOULS OF CORPORATIONS.
There is an old axiom of Eneiish
law that corporations have no souls.
The manner in which thousands of
corporations have given their services
ana tmeir means to the Liberty loan,
to the Red Cross and to the Y. m'
C A., and to other National efforts
during this war seems to disprove the
truth of the saying.
The Congress of the United States
seeaia to have adopted the view that
a corporation may have a soul, since
it aas authorized national banks to
contribute to the American National
Red Cross out of any net profits avafl-
able under the law for the declaration
of dividends. Thn
vides that funds so contributed shall
be used by the Red Cross in furnish
ing voluntary aid to the sick and
wounded of the combatant armies, the
voluntary relief of the Army and Navy
of the United States, and the relief of
the euf fertog caused iby the war to the

WHAT WILL DR. DUBOIS DOT
This Is the question all Washing

The friends of Dr. BuBois seem to
be divided into two camps, one in sist
ing that it Is his patriotic duty to
accept the proffer of service in the
War Department, where he will have

Some think he can hold both places,
but the militants of the Advancement

Into the War Department he must
resign the editorship of The Crisis.
Conservative opinion Is not inclined
to Join In the tirade ob abuse heaped
upon the head ot DuBols by the radi

accept the commission In the army
and give the government the benefit pf
his ripe experience and thorough
knowledge of the race problem that
confronts the nation on both sides
of the ocean, but it is also the general
belief that he should surrender the
editorship of The Crisis to other

Y. P. U. CONVENTION.
The Committee on State of the Coun
try submits the following for your
consideration : I
The Kingdom of God is universal!
in doctrine, purpose and scope. It j
must, therefore, be spoken of in
world-terms and utilized in the ad
justment and settlement of universal
problems. When we pray the Father
to let His Kingdom come and His
will be done on earth as It is in
heaven, we are petitioning Him for
the universal reign of tne Christ
principle in the earth.
The contest for the recognition of
human rights is the inevitable soul-
striving after soul-freedom. From this
viewpoint Baptists stand most favor
able comparison. Theirs is the doc
trine of soul-liberty without modifica
tions or restrictions of any kind. We
have reason to congratulate ourselves
that we are part of a Christian de
nomination with such lofty ideals;
and that more and more the world Is
coming to a recognition of this prin
ciple which we advocate in such an
uncompromising manner. It is signi
ficant with us that at this time, the
whole world Is engaged In a bloody
combat for 'the recognition of human
We desire to see the world made
safe for democracy; we want democ
racy abroad and democracy at home.
We have no grievances to file at this
time: no long list of complaints to
register: we have for the present lost
sight of the indiscriminate legislation,
the Jim-crow Car laws, the restriC'
Hon and abrogation of our franchise.
the unanimous disregard for our
women, the well nigh universal pros
cription against us on account of our
racial identity; indulging in the fond
hope that when democracy for which
we are fighting bo gallantly .takes its
world-strides, we will, In common
with other despised and oppressed peo'
pie, be the recipients of the benefits
and blessings which it wil bring to
the new world and the new age.
We pray not for favoritism, for
special attention, nor for charitable
consideration. We plead only for
equality opportunity the natural
outgrowth of democracy and for the
granting of those things which we
Ca:n by actual merit.
We have never faltered nor hesi
tated when the flag ot our country
needed our aid in a struggle to main
tain its honor. We have Bhed blood
freely and copiously in all the wars
of our country from the War of the
Revolution to the heart-rendering
massacre of our brave boys at Car-
rizal. We are still so devoted to the
country and its flag, so determined
to help Bustain its honor that in two
cases since the present war began,
Negro soldiers have gone directly
from the funerals of their brothers and
blood relatives that had been foully
murdered by a brutal mob, to the
camp to fight for the freedom of their
country. Such loyalty, such devo-
tion, such heroism, the world has never
witnessed. Our soldier boys are mak
ing good on European battlefields, and
we venture the prophecy that when
two million Negro soldiers line up
on the Western Front, singing shout
ing and cursing and shooting, the
brave Tueton will realize that his
Waterloo is approaching. Before the
torrifflc slaughter of gun and cannon
fired by dauntless Negro troopers, his
spirit wil weaken, his flesh quiver
and with unfaltering step and accel
g velocity, ha wil march to the
music of the "band which plays
In the mighty struggle of right
against might, of reason against force,
ot honorable war-fare against merci
less brutality, of freedom against
Blavory, ot democracy against auto
cracy, let us serve faithfully and well.

Let us keep our hearts humble, our
minds pure, our determination solid;
Let us do more than our part in the .
pending world conflict: let us help
mightily to win the war for God and
truth and righteousness and to make
sure and certain the approach ot that
eventful period when

By Wm. R. Roach.
Oh God. who art the author of
peaco and lover ot concord, in knowl
edge of whom Btandeth our eternal
lives, in behalf or all those who are
engaged in this Moody warfare we
pray that thou wouldst visit them
daily as they fight for the uplifting
of righteousness and tho downfall ot
unrighteousness. Grant unto tliera
Ihe full power to know that thou
art God, and if God bo for us, lil3
banner o er us, we 11 sing the vic
tor's song at last. We ask iThee, O
Great. God, to visit the sick and
wounded "over there," especially
those who are appointed to die;,
grant that they may make their
amendments and seek forgiveness
ere It be too late.
In behalf of the Gorman Govern
ment nnd ruler we ask that that evil
seed that was sown, germinated and
has matured in his heart, do thou
ut it down nnd plant within him the
seed ot pace nnd righteousness that
he may be awakened from his sin
ful sleep and behold his awful con
dition, and may ho be reconciled to,
thee before thou shoulilst call him
by tho voice of death.
Finally, do thou hasten the day
when the roar of gun shall pass
away and unto thee shall we extol
the praise, the honor and the glory
from henceforth and forevermore.
HEROISM DISPLAYED BY WILL
("BILL") JOHNSON CCOLORED)
Another heroic deed to the Negro's
credit was displayed by Will Johnson
(colored) known as "Bill," of Mur
freesboro when on Monday night, July
22, a bgi fire broke out in E. Main
street (Murfreesboro). The fire was
raging eastward to the prominent
section of the town when the iwhite
firemen became frantic and worried
down. "Bill," after shoutnlg:
"Go in this way! Go in this way!"
he asked the firemen with the hose
to let him have the hose. This they
did and like a fearless lion, Bill
rushed into a smoky entrance and
In a few minutes he had the fire under
control, saving property with a valu
ation that would reach in the thou
sands. When the Tuesday morning
sun rose Bill found that a rich lit
tle sum had been contributed to him,
by the good white people, who ac
knowledged his deed of heroism.
