long winter evenings In playing whist.
Better counsel would urge that said

then devote their spare time to at

Brother Chiles In going down with
H. M. Ship Hodges which struck a
stray mine In November, takes a
parting shot at the Sun, which al
ways casts forth the strong rays of
Lincoln republicanism. The shot went
far wide and we are still steering
toward the ever-nearing harbor wliere
in the g. o. p. craft Is sure to anchor
after the petty political squalls have
spent themselves.
Threo local Negro physicians now
occupy good professional places in
the city government and each Is more
than making good. In this respect
the medical men are far outdistanc
ing their legal 'brethren who have not
as yet managed to land any of the
political Jobs of the city, notwith
standing the fact that through the lat
ter profession Is the greatest oppor
tunity offered for making political
acquaintances and demonstrating- of
ficial merit.
Every once In awhile tho bugbear
of race prejudice is brought up
squarely before the United States su
preme court and each time that trib
unal demonstrates its ability to side
step the issue. The able Jurists know
that they dare not go before the legal
' world with any formal approval of the
greatest curse that ever blighted the
fair name of an empire, yet they dare
not face their frantic constituents
with an open declaration against
them. It Is indeed an embarrassing
position to be placed In and must
cause the judges no end of chargln.
The side-stepping really accomplishes
the desired purposes, however, and
mat. is some relief to the-court. In
the recent decision Involving the con
stitutlonallty of the Oklahoma "Jim
Crow" laws wherein violent
warranted discrimination are shown
to foe levied against our people, the
court declared that the laws are Illy
conceived but refused to give out a
formed decree because the rights of
the Negroes were too widely set forth
tninK or it! and 'because of some
verbal informalities in
of appeal. In the meantime wo are
sun m tho stuffy, filthy cars day and
night, paying full fare and foeln? sub
jected to nil sorts of humiliation.
FRIENDLY VISITORS.
The Friendly Visitors of the Kan
sas City Pr6vldent Association have
decided to give a neighborhood
Christmas tree and entertainment at
the Garrison Square Field House on
Christmas eve, December 24, 1914.
Tho children who seldom. It over, take
part in, any entertainment, will fur
nish tho program. Thoy believe it
would mean much to these families
to gee their children In a Christmas
entertainment and to receive from the
THE VISITING MINISTER.
This picture finely illustrates an
Incident too frequently happening in
this world. It Is more dramatic than
humorous and proves to be an ap
preciable sarcasm on the preacher
who happens around to Sister Jones'
houso about meal time to the detri
ment of the young ones who are much
concerned about whether there will
be enough food to feed them, with an
additional boarder whom experience
has taught them Is none too conserva
tive In his demands for moro"fowl."
and "hot biscuits." The splendid art
ist, Mr. It. J. Rice, is happily success
ful in portraying the feature lineaa
ments and character expression of the
painting. The humble surroundings,
a simple family with the bard laboring
i'husband disturbed in his musical rec
reation with his companionable banjo,
with a look that reflects a struggle
between hospitality and disgust; with
the tired and overworked wife, hesi
tating between respect for her pastor
and a possible fear of her Master, all
conspire to make the picture of con
tinued interest and worthy of much
study. N
The color effect, the feature work
Is excellent; how easy It is for the
painter to detect from his creation 'by
a too generous application here, or a
lack of depth there. But tho natural
lino given by Mr. Rice to the char
acters speak volumes for his aesthetic
sense which after all is best in form
and naturalness.
We expect no trouble In securing
a patron for this splendid OIL PAINT-
Ing for the ridiculous sum of twelve
dollars and fifty cents. A work of
art that will last a life time and will
always be artistically pleasing to its
possessor and friends.
