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 of 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 singer of pleasing songs to entertain you while you eat. "Who
Knows" (by Dunbar), "When the Sands of the Desert Grow Cold"
and "Isle D'Honour" are some of the favorites called for and fur
nished from the repertoire of the young lady who, to say tho least,
is a versatile entertainer. While the clever-toned victrola 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

LYD1A C. SMITH,
Attorney L. A. Knox, In a letter to
the Journal replying to a suggestion
irom Prof. Greenwood that one hun
dred or more regiments of Negro sol
diers be sent to Mexico, said some
very pertinent things, but in stating
that the K. P. drill corps were the
only avalllable forces for such an
emergency overlooked the Knights
Templar, the Patriarchs, the Palatine
Guards and many other organizations
of equal efficiency and hesitancy.
It might also be noted that some one
is always on hand to pick out t he
Negro's usefulness and availability
when the country Is confronted with
peril. When times are prosperous
and things are rosey the black man
comes In for little or no considera
tion. The door of hope which war
offers is' all right In Its way, but the
times of peace could afford a much
better portal if the same considera
tion were shown. Why not give the
Negro consideration all the time?
