DR. WM. T. VERNON, A. M. LL. JJ.
President of Campbell College, Jackson, Miss., who has Just com
pleted a. tour of 8,000 miles through the great Northwest and who preached
an impressive and eloquent sermon at Allen Chapel on last Sunday morn

A SUCCESSFUL PHYSICIAN.
No physician In either of the Kan
sas Cities has built up a more lucra
tive practice nor achieved such re
markable success In so short a time
as has Dr. H. C. Hayden, who resides
at 945 Everett avenue, Kansas City,
Kas., and who has an elegant suite
Of offices at Fourth and Minnesota
B venue. Dr. Hayden came to Kansas
ilty, Kas., In 1907, after graduating
with high honors from Weharry Med
ical College of the class of '07, and
In belngjsuccess'ful in curing some of
the -most difficult cases in Kansas
City, 'Kas., and 'Argentine, he began
at onco to build up a large practice
in these two cities. There are sev
eral people in Greater Kansas City
who constantly sing the praises of
Dr. Hayden and say after they had
been given up by several other well
known physicians, he was able to re
store them to complete health and
each one of these happy persons be
came a walking advertisement for
this brilliant young physician. He
married Miss Bstelle AVilson, a popu
lar and accomplished teacher in the
Douglass School, and so large has his
practice become that he was com
pelled recently to purchase a hand
some new Hudson automobile In or
der to be able to reach quickie his
numerous patients. He and his esti
mable wife are exceedingly popular
among all classes and they are both
of that kind and friendly temperament
that has won them a host of friends.
They have two valuable residences,
besides the beautiful home in which)
they reside, one at 1403 Ni 10th street
and the other at 2816 N. Qth street,
both of which are rqnted to splendid
tenants and for which he -receives a
neat Income. Dr. Hayden's phenome
nal success should be an inspiration
to every competent and aspiring
youn? man and that suocess which he
has achieved In, such a large degree
can ho found only by earnest appli
cation to duty and constant devotion
to one's profession. The Negroes of
the two Kansas Cities are proud of

ANOTHER TRIUMPH FOR THE DELMdNIGp,C'AFE
1512 E. Eighteenth St.
We are practically in the very spirit of Easter. As the Delmonico
has always led in everything that spells service for the Cafe patron
so today we are offering unusual advantages and accommodations
that eclipse anything we have been able to offer in the past. Recent
improvements have made it possible for us to serve our customers
more efficiently and satisfactorily than ever. The already spacious
dining room has been made even larger. A fine appearing partition
now separates the Bakery Display" from the Cafe proper. "Wo be
lieve this departure will please the general public since anyone desir
ing to purchase Uakery Goods only, need not feel the least embar
rassed in coming in. (This part of our business is highly Appreciated,
itiul we feel deeply grateful that Ave are playing so large a part in the
economic life of the bread consumer.) Whereas, the exclusive Cafe
patron, by our new appointment and arrangement, can enjoy an in
creased privacy. We have also added another Institution in our new
plan. It is music, High Class Entertainment. This will be ren
dered Sunday afternoons and every evening.. It will be a permanent
part of our standard service. Remember, Easterites! The day will
be incomplete without dinner at the DELMONICO. Realizing this
we have prepared an elaborate menu wljich is both allliring and ap
petizing, the same being served at a popular price."

It Is to be regretted that the
Masonic bodies of Kansas City
have not taken up the Idea of
making an annual sermon display.
It was argued strongly years ago
and Is now believed by many pro
fanes that Masonry Is a non-re-llglous
cult. Nothing would serve
a better purpose in "efuting such
a misnomer than' a proper service
once each year. The Grand Lodge
a few years ago went pn record as
endorsing the Idea and even sug
gested a day for the, observance.
In a few points in the Jurisdiction
the plan fs followed with gratify
It Is true that Masonry Is a con
servative art and has never de
pended upon any sort of vain show
for holding Its place In the public
esteem, but It is also true that
any unreasonable conservatism is
calculated to work more harm
than good and this seems to be1 a
point whereupon the practical Bide
might be very sensibly observed.
Masondy is a strictly religious In
stitution. The world should not
only be told ths but ,)L should be
openly shown Jjy a" iJwiial'."ib3erv

bodies and branches of the craft,
male and female, Uniting In such
a demonstration annually would
not- only serve to extol the cause
of Christ but would further exalt
the glory of the oldest secret In
stitution in the world.

The rendition of the Oratorio, "The
Seven Last Words of Christ," by Du
bois, Thursday night, was one of tho
most musical and artistic treats of
tho year. More than 600 persons,
among whom were quite a few of tho
leading white people of the city,
heard this delightful program and
"were loud In their praises of its' ex
cellence. The management and' ar
rangements were In the hands of that
cultured, accomplished and tireless
worker in her distinguished husband's
church, Mrs. Dr. S. W. Bacote, and It'
Is needless to say that every detail
was carefully arranged.
Mrs. Bacote deserves all the splen
did compliments she received on this
magnificent presentation and she is
a distinct and valuable aBset to the
race in this city. ,J" .
The soloists were Mesdames li. J.
Bacote, Corlnne Lester'and Miss Les

P. Flchne, tenors, and F. Wright and
Jas. Anderson, bassos, while Miss
Lula Knox presided at tho organ. Mr.
J. Ellison, trombonist, with 'Mrs. Ba

A beautiful souvenir program from
the artistic print shop of Mr. Arthur
W. Harris, was given each patron,
and today all who were present are
loud in their praise of Dr. and Mrs.
In the contest launched hy Dr.

have made the following awards:
The first prize, S3 In gold, -was won,

The second prize, a fine tennis

Quarrels of 2412 Montgall avenue,
with the following effusion: "We aro

Smith's Drug Store. We are dancing
tho Tango, -we are singing the Tango,
wo are weajing the Tango apparel,
and why not beserved a Tango Sun

on a blazer? It contains a dainty
marshmellow, a tiny loaf of sugar
surrounded by a blaze which reminds
you of the volcano Saqura Yima In
full eruption, candled cherries, a la
nuts, strawberries to suit the taste
and bananas to remind you of the ba
nana glide. While eating it it reminds
you of the Titanic going down, tso
come on and have one because you
can't get away from it."
The third prize, a year's subscrip
tion to the Kansas City Sun, was won
by Attorney W. B. Bruce of 117 West
