The meeting in honor of the birth
day anniversary of the martyr, John
Brown, that was held under the aus
pices of the St. Paul branch of the
National Association for the Advance
ment of Colored People at St James
A. M. E church last Tuesday evening
was very poorly attended, much to
the discredit of the people But, those
who showed their interest in the race
by their presence enjoyed the occa
sion. Dr Val Do Turner presided.
Rev J. P. Sims opened with prayer.
This was a regular meeting of the as
sociation and the regular business was
transacted. The principal thing done
was the passage of a motion to send
$50 to the National Association to be
placed in the legal fund to aid in the
St. Louis segregation case. After the
transaction of the routine business
Miss Martha Goins, representing Pil
grim Baptist Sunday school, read an
admirable paper on John Brown. She
was followed by Mr. H. Harris, rep
resenting St. James A E Sunday
school. Messrs Mitchell, Martin
Brown and J. Q. Adams acted as
judges and recommended that each of
the contestants should be awarded a
prize, and each was presented a hand
some gold N. A. A. C. P. button. Mrs.
Val Do Turner and Atty. W. Francis
also eulogized the martyr in a very
acceptable manner. After the meet
ing refreshments were served by theshort
ladies of the One More Effort club.

Five clever funmakers, three pretty
and talented women and 20 beautiful
and vivacious chorus girls make up
"The Hip, Hip, Hooray Girls" bur
lesqu company which commences a
engagement at the Star the
ater, Sunday matinee.
Two snappy burlesques called "A

chorus ample opportunity to display
their talents. The management offers
something new in these two acts.
Such men who enjoy wide reputa
tion as" burlesque entertainers are
Murray J. Simons, Manny King,
Charles Dunn, Billy Meehan, Gus Flaig 1
and such women as Hattie Beal, Grace
Holcomb and Margie Catlin are in
cluded in the cast.

THE TUSKEGEE SINGERS.
The Tuskegee Institute Quintette,
accompanied by Mr. Chas. Winter
Wood, spent three days in St. Paul
and Minneapolis and one day in Duluth.
On Sunday morning they sang at St.
James A. M. E. church to a very large
congregation. At 3 o'clock in the
afternoon, accompanied by Peavey S.
they appeared at the First
M. E Church and in the evening, in
company with Mr. Joseph E. Johnson,
they sang at the Westminster Pres
byterian church at Minneapolis. Dr.
Bushnell and his congregation gave
the singers a very warm reception and
enjoyed the selections rendered. Many
friends were made for the school. On
Monday morning they appeared at
Macalester College and rendered sev
eral selections to the student body
At 3 o'clock, through the kindness
of Mr. Wood, who placed his 7-pas-
senger Cadillac at their service, they
were shown the points of interest in
and St. Paul, and were
then driven to the Plymouth Congre
gational church where they enter
tained a large audience.
On Tuesday morning the Quintette
sang at the University of Minnesota
to an audience which packed the Uni
versity Theater to the doors, and
where many were unable to gain ad
mittance. It was the desire of the
faculty to have them remain over-and
repeat the concert, but an engage
ment in Duluth prevented their doing
so On Wednesday noon they sang
before the Commercial Club of Duluth
and at 7 p. m. at the Hotel Holland
they were greatly appreciated.
At 8 15 m. they appeared before a
rather small but responsive audience
at the First M. E Church. The eve
ning was stormy and cold which ac
counted for the small attendance.
Mr. Wood and the Quintette left on
the Northern Pacific train at 11-10 for
St. Paul, thence to Chicago, having
completed to date over ten thousand
miles in their six months' tour through
the West and Pacific Coast. They
have one more engagement which is
at St Louis on the 13th inst. and then
to their Alma Mater, after having
one of the most successful trips in the
history of the Quintette.
M. J. CARR.
Who Brought About a Needed Change
at the Poor Farm.
It is wonderful how much good can
be brought about by the efforts of one
person, when his heart is in the right
place and his soul is in the work. A
time ago the city was wrought
up over the discovery of the deplor
able conditions at the poor farm. The
investigation that was inaugurated by
County Commissioner M. J. Carr
showed that the inmates were not
served with butter, eggs or milk, ex
cept on special occasions, though
these commodities were produced
there and sold to the city hospital,
while the inmates of the poor farm
were glad to have the opportunity of
fishing articles of food from the
garbage that was returned from the
hospital. The efforts of Mr. Carr
brought about a change in the super
intendent and matronwho also have
heartsand now the unfortunate in
mates have plenty of milk, butter,
eggs, etc. Formerly they were served
individually, now dishes of food are
placed on the tables and each person
is permitted to help himself or her
self. Arrangements are also being
made to have rest rooms on every
floor of the house, with cots conven
iently arranged, and hereafter when
any of the inmates is sick he is at
once removed to the city hospital.
