"The Scribes and Pharisees w-.re the

to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ
"The supreme need of our churches
Is their transformation into evange
listic centers. This is the real busi
ness of the churches. In a great many
communities there is a prevailing
thought that the church cannot reach
the masses. This is merely an illusion
of the devil, and nothing else. Our
[churches are well built and well
[equipped so that we do not have to
rent buildings in which to hold evange
listic meetings. The church Is the
place for evangelistic work and the
time is here when we should make the
church the place to reach out and

Williams and Walker, those famous
colored comedians, will open at the
Great Northern this week, for a lim
ited engagement, in their "New Ban
danna Land," which was the "society
fad" of New York City for over four
months. Not only is it new in the mat
ter of costumes, scenery and electrical
effects, but its songs are all new and
up-to-date. For instance, Miss Aida
Overton Walker, that well-known sing- ,.
er and dancer, has a song called "The

ception of the role, which differs in
many respects from those of the other
dancers now appearing inthis class
ic. She does not handle the grewsome
head, she does not rely solely upon the
movements of the body and her cos
tume consists of a full covering of the
body, except bare arms and shoulders.
A symphony orchestra of twentv

... "\e\p Bandanna .Land" is a real
unique novelly, not only because it has
two unusually popular star comedians
at its head—Bert Williams is again the
"good thing" with George Walker get
ting everything in sight—but the plot,
songs, situations, chorus and every
other feature of Us company of seven
ty-five people are up to the standard
set by these two stars. As a result,
the comedy starts at once and the
movement is rapid throughout the en
tire three acts.
The book, lyrics and music are by
those talented colored authors and
composers, the Messrs. Shipp, Rogers
and Cook.
Fever sores and old chronic sores
should not be healed eiw -eiy, but
should be kept in healthy condition.
This can be done by applying Cham

have written a strong one. My acad

was a newspaper writer after I had

condemned for writing a scene such
as I have written in the second act,
but I am used to condemnation—I've
had it ail mv life—and in this in
stance I happened to be in possession
of facts when I wrote the play. The
greater percentage of authors write
by cut and dried rules and measure

thing of social life. I haven't written
anything about it, but I do claim to
know humanity, men and women, and
my little offering is but a reproduction
of a few lives as they have been lived.
