(By W. E. Grlffen.)
Perhaps the chief public interest In
Fagoro centers Is the fact that in
1913 he Was awarded tfie noble prize
for creative idealistic literature. This
groat honor Is In itself a most notable
achievement Involving not only sub
stantial financial rewards, but bringing
to Its recipient an international fame
limited only by the confines of the
civilized world. ' But possibly more
important still is the fact that al
though those "prizes have been perlbd-
lcally awarded Since 1901 no member
of any of the'darker, races has hither
to won one of them. All of the noble
prizes have hitherto gone to the white
race. The East Indian Fagore is the
first representative of the dark skin
ned races to achieve this particular
form of recognition of creative gen
ius. Fagoro Is emphatically a child
of the Orient, and an Intellectual de
scendant of the Ancient Hind. He is,
a voice from the tomb of the past, yet
fresh and vital In Its message of ex
uberant joy and abounding hope.
Fagore embodies the spirit and has
mastered the form of that ancient
monumental literature which even,
four thousand years ago was old In
story and tradition, history and song.
Those who have enjoyed the pleasure
of perusing Anvlent Vedlo poems, the
Mahabarata, and other rich remains
of that venerable Sanskrit literature
which was ripe with age before the
literatures of Europe were born, those
persons have felt that never again
should civilization witness poetry ' so
exalted or a philosophical theology so
But now comes. Itablndranath Fa
gore, the modern-ancient writing in
the same spirit, master of the same
form, Fagore Is hoth a poet and a
phlosopher. A philosopher because
he deduces the ultimate purpose of
creative life, a poet because he clear
ly perceives that truth and beauty
are one. With him truth Is beauty In
its ultlmate aspect, whilst beauty is
the'soul In a song of rhapBody. He sees
He sees nature as a sympolle realm,
whose changing scenes and visible
forms proclaim a master drama which
must culminate In oneness with the
Divine mind; but also as a system of
harmonies and rhythms, an Infinity
of lyric dreams and dancing phan
tasies, whose united music swells en-tranclngly,-
embodying the epic' song
of the world. Fagore is the poet of
life as well as of nature. He Is the
poet of hope and love, and of that
divine passion which sweeps through
the soul In a song of rhapsdy. He sees
also the shadows and tragedies. He
believes In the immortality of those
spiritual things which we weakly sym
bolize In our actions which we try
to express, but find them dying on
our lips. He believes In the exaltation
of life,' In the appropriation to and
for life of all truth and beauty, and
in weaving these essences and ideals'
Into the very tissue of the soul.

GREAT THINGS AT THE DELMONICO.
That, we are fairly approaching the "De Luxe" service in style
and quality must be acknowledged by the most conservative. The
recommendation to our business is the evident satisfaction of our
customers which clearly shows that recent Improvements made by
us are duly appreciated. Aside from maintaining a high standard
in cafe service and an enlarged selection ot Bakery Goods our Mu
sical innovation has made the "hit" with the people. We are for
tunate in having Miss Cozetta Kingsberry, a local teacher, pianist
and snger of pleasing songs to entertain you while you eat. "Who
Knows" (by Dunbar), "When the Sands ot the Desert Grow Cold"
and "Isle D'Honour" are some of the favorites called for and fur
nished from the repertoire ot the young lady who, to say the least,
is a versatile entertainer. While the clever-toned vlctrola wafts out
selections of every sort all the way from the ridiculous to the sub
lime. Remember this Is our standard service! Music on Sunday af
ternoons and every evening. Read our weekly ad.

USE NEGROES IN MEXICO.
Superintendent Greenwood's Sugges
tion to President Wilson.
Following Is a copy of a letter that
was mailed yesterday by J. M. Green
wood, superintendent of Instruction,
to President Wilson:
To the President, Executive Mansion,
Washington, D. C.:
In case of war between the United
States and Mexico I most respectful
ly Invite your attention to the im
portance of calling for 100 or 150
regiments of Negro soldiers to be mus
tered In, armed and equipped, and
properly officered by both white and
Negro officers, to act as a constabu
lary force In preserving order in that
unhappy country until some legally
constituted government can bo es
tablished that will protect life and
property. In this connection I deem
It unnecessary to offer any argument
In favor of such a policy.
As a citizen of tbe United States I
most sincerely hope that war and Its
horrible calamities may be averted,
but in case of open hostilities, the
necessity of placing a large body ot
Negro soldiers In that country to
preserve order, would be one of the
greatest object lessons that can be
given not only to the Mexicans them
selves, but to the civilized world.
Your most obedient servant,
J. M, GREENWOOD.
