VOLUME X.
INDEPENDENCE, MO.
The funeral of Willie Griggs who
cllod Tuesday morning, from the ef
fects of being struck by an unknown
person with a rock a week ago, was
held Saturday afternoon at the A. M.
E. church. Willie was a favorite with
the girls and boys of the city, there
fore It was an exceptionally sad af
fair. Willie was 20 years of age, and
was a great help to his mother. His
father died four weeks ago, two deaths
in the family inside of a month. Wil
lie's casket was completely covered
with flowers. He leaves a dear moth
er, two sisters and one brother to
mourn his untimely death.
Mrs. Ixira I oniric is much improved
at this writing and there are hopes of
her recovery.
Revs. Allen and Wlnrow spent last
week in St. Louis.
We hope the sermon preached to
the class Sunday night by Rev. Allen
will be heeded by the young girls, and
that they will try to do something to
show their appreciation to parents and
teachers.
Rev. McCampbell and Mrs. Rosa
Bally of Kansas City installed the
officers of St. Venus Court May 18.
It was certainly a grand affair, after
instllatlon a table was spread and all
were told to eat to their satisfaction.
After witnessing the entire proceed
ings, it Is now a question, as to wheth
er St. Annas has been legally installed
or not. St. Venus is the youngest
court, but it Is a good pattern for
St. Annas if she would only heed.
Well, the lite Summit trouble has
about ceased to be the leading topic.
I wonder what our girls and boys will
do next to gain notoriety.
The millinery ladles are succeed
ing In the hat work. We only hope
they will continue to do work for
their race at least. We understand
one of our millinery ladies (white) is
very Indignant because the club exists;
of course she can't help her self, and
the smart sayings she utters will not
discourage the ladies In the least.
A NOTABLE EVENT.
The Grand Opening of the Masonic
Temple at Jefferson City, Mo.
On May 11th. 1905 Capital City
iodge No. 9. A. F. & A. M., entered
Its new quarters in its magnificent new
building under very auspicious circum
stances. This event marks a new era In the
history of Capital City Lodge. The
site once occupied by an old and de
lapidated building is now graced by
a beautiful three story brick structure,
modern in all of its appointments.
Aside from the three stories above,
the building has a commodious and
well lighted basement eight feet In
the clear, making virtually, four stor
ies. The building Is C4 by 24 feet, well
finished and furnished with both gas
and electricity, with water works and
toilet conveniences.
The new structure with its fittings
cost something over $5000.00, which,
together with the lot, from the state
of things in Jefferson City, makes the
property easily worth $7000.00.
For a number of years Capital City
Lodge has desired to replace the old
with a new building, but the under
taking seemed to hazardous. Unstint
ed praise and great credit are due the
present worshipful Master, Dr. J. H.
Garnett, for his undaunted courage
and zeal in urging and pushing this
most commendable, yet doubtful un
dertaking and for his wide-awake and
business like tact in sterrlng the un
dertaking to success.
The Building Committee consisting
of Messers G. W. Dupee, Chairman,
J. S. Moten, Secretary, J. W. Darnel,
Treasurer, C. B. 1-me, John Carter,
and J. H. Garnett, worked hard and de

discharge of Its duty.
This building Is not only a credit to

the following program was rendered:
Music by the Mandolin Club. Intro

forts leading up to the undertaking.
"A retrospect of the Committee's
work," by J. S. Moten. "Our business

Influence," by Grand Master C. G.
Williams, whose address was eloquent.
Meals were served day and night by a
committee from the Indies Court, who
worked willingly, faithfully and hard,
and that too without price. The Com
mittee richly deserves and has the
sincere thanks of the lodge. Follow

SILVER JUBILEE OF BISHOP H. M,
TURNER.
Twenty-Five Years Bishop Eminent
Negro Divine Present.
All day Thursday and Friday St.
Paul church was the scene of one of
the rarest events that ever happened
In the history of the American Negro.
The silver anniversary of Bishop Tur
ner, the commemoration of tho twenty-fifth
year of his elevation to tho
bishopric. There were present Bishops
Grant, Gaines, Arnett and the senior
bishop himself, besides which the
ablest and most eminent thinkers,
writers and orators of the church.
Bishop Arnett's call of tho roll of
the general conference of 1880, which
met In St. Ixiuis and elected Henry M.
Turner bishop, was Interesting and
sad, for In the list were many scores of
great and good men who have, years
ago, gone to Join the majority; only
a few of them were present.
Rev. R. H. Singleton, of Valdosta,
Fla., gave a biographical sketch of
the bishop's struggle In youth ugalnst
the depressing environments, of his
wonderful will force, his difficulties in
the pursuit of knowledge and Its ac
quirement, and of his gradual rise to

eminence. Next followed the literary
man of the church. Prof. II. T. Keal
Ing, editor of the A. M. E. Review,
with a paper full of pith, point and hu
mor, and such a clear analysis of tho
physical, mental and spiritual quali
ties of the bishop, that, while true to
his subject, exhibited unmistakable
evidence that the writer stands in the
front ranks of the literary men of to
day. It was piquant and sparkling.
Rev. R. F. Hurley, D. D., of Trenton,
N. J., represented the bishop In his
civil war record. The bishop and him
self were members of the First United
States Colored infantry, the first Ne
gro regiment mustered into the United
States army. He told of how the first
two companies were formed, how they
drilled with wooden guns, and how
Bishop Turner took care of them and
advocated their cause until the gov
ernment decided to arm the Negro,
Bishop Turner was appointed chaplain
of the regiment by President Lincoln
and was with them often, fighting him
self in 18 general battles of the war.
He told many Incidents Illustrating the
candor and personal pluck of the
bishop.
During the morning hour a telegram
was received from the senior bishop
of the A. M. E. Zion church, Rt. Rev
Hood, congratulating Bishop Turner,
and declaring that ho was the greatest
living Negro; also Blliop Winters
sent a telegram paying highest com
pliments, besides many of the bishops
of the A. M. E. church wrote letters
of regret that unavoidable business
prevented their presence.
In the afternoon Rev. Dr. E. W.
Iimpton, financial secretary delivered
a very eloquent addres on tho bishop
and his financial work. Rev. Dr. A. J.
Carey, of Chicago, treated the bishop
as a statesman in a very forcible man'
tier, and tho gifted and cultured Bee
retary of education, Prof. John R.
Hawkins, of Kittrell, N. C, made tell
ing points in the Interest of the race
and tho marvelous career of Bishop
Turner.
Exactly a quarter of a century ago
Bishop II. M. Turner was appointed
bishop of the A. M. E. church in the
city of St. Louis, In the month of May,
18S0. He is now the senior bishop of
his church, and without question, one
of the most gifted, peculiar, original
and, remarkable men among his poo-,
plu in this or nny other country. During
the civil war he was chaplain In the I
I'nited States army and attracted the
attention of the nation by the reuiark-
ablo sermons he delivered. Ills ser
mons bristled with eloquence, thought
und striking expressions. He is a
bold and fearless advocate, clean cut
and startling in his views, and he has
been often eagerly quoted iu the fam-

THE QUEEN OF ALL HAIR TONICS.
A PLAIN RECITAL.
Talk is cheap, and actions speak
louder than words. In order to prove
to the public that (ilossine Is the
greatest and most meritorious of all
halr; tonics we will give free to every
readrr of this paper, not a sample;
but a full size box. If (ilossine was
not the best hair tonic In all the whole
wide world this offer would bankrupt
us.
Glosslne, queen of all hair tonics
Is tie most wonderful remedy for the
human hair ever discovered and has
astounded the whole world by its mi
raculous and mysterious power in
lengthening, straightening and beauti
fying the human hair. It is the result
of Ujiig years of careful study and tho
earnest researches of Miss Helen Mar
tin, a beautiful and attractive woman
who is acknowledged to lie the most
skilful and famous beauty doctor of
the day.
She is a wonderful and most magni
ficent specimen of womanly grace and
beauty, and although now 58 years of
age she scarcely looks to be When
asked by what mediums she had been
able to so successfully preserve tho
attractiveness and beauty of youth.
Miss Martin said. Why It Is very sim
ple to me and every woman be slio
while o colored, young or old or as
ugly as sin itself can become pretty,
shapely and graceful If she will only
do as I advise. As a child I was never
considered pretty, iu fact, I was not
even thought to lie good looking and
for this very reason ever since 1 was
a girl of sixteen I have made a study
of such agencies and materials which
tend to beautify and adorn the human
person.
In tho glorious vegetable world
which nature has so bounteously be
stowed upon us there are hundreds of
innocent mediums which after my long
life of study and investigation I havo
been able to successfully blend and
formulate into various preparations
which euchance and preserve the life
and beauty of the hair and skin. I
owe my own good looks and youthful
appearance to these preparations
which are the results of my life long
Will li.
As to (ilossine I havo never known It
to t.ill to cause the hair to grow long,
straight, soft and luxurious. It mat
ters not how harsh or kinky it may
he and I care not if it. be short broken,
splitting at tho ends or fallng out
(ilossine will positively make It soft,
straight and pliant. It will give to the
hair lustre, length, life and beauty and
no head of hair can lie so harsh and
refractory but that Gloslno will inukii
it so pliant and wavy that, it can bo
dressed with ease and iu any prevail
ing style desired.
1' will restore gray hair to Its for
mer color, make the hair grow out on
all bald spots, and on the temples
win re the hair Is usualy thin and im
siglitly. (ilossine is highly, sweetly
itn,l most delicately perfumed, and its
color and subslstency Is very atrrac
tive to all. Seeing our great success
ami with the desire to trade upon our
reputation gained by long years of
holiest dealing nunwrous unscrupu
lous firms are trying to fool the peo
ple into buying spurious and harm
ful compounds for the hair and skin,
that cause the hair to fall, thus caus
i 1
ing baldness and ruin; mar and deface
the delicate texture of the human skin.
In their wiikt d desire to gain money,
these people do not hesitate to sell
the people many preporaf ions which
are dangerous to life Itself. In order
to dlscouteiiance and condemn such
dishonest, methods, Miss Martin has
decided to give a full sized package of
(ilossine to any reader of tills paper
male or female who will send their
name and address. Do not delay.
Write today. A postal card will do.
We will also send our catalogue which
describes in detail our hair tonics,
face bleaches and o:her toilet re

The editor looked up from the con

spoke to the poet.
"Why have you returned four

Duty of a Gentleman.
On one occasion, having returned
from playing poker at the club, my
grandfather said :
."When a man Is hard up he should
borrow; but he must devote his en
ergies to paying back and remaining
the equal or the man from whom ho
lias borrowed. If lie cannot pay back,
let li t in be trunk about It; for it Is
better to steal than to cheat."
And again:
"To ride straight and to shoot
ptralght, to win money cheerfully and
to lose It cheerfully, never to be lnor
Mily in debt or swinishly drunk, to
enjoy Dowers and music, and if pos
rlhlc to he hi love with at least olio
good woman, Is half t lie duty of u gen

"Why, to bo a gentleman, of

The People's Schools.
The schools belong ,," people
and will bo what the people make
tliein. It Is a mistake to suppose that
school ettlcers and teachers are the
only ones that have to do with the
making of the schools. Tho peoplo
set tho pace for the teachers and
school officers. If a school officer
does not meet the Ideals of the people
lie Is turned out at tho tlrst elect lou.
If a teacher does not meet tho ideals
o.' the people tho teacher Is quickly
reached through the school otllcers.
So It gets back to flip people In the
end. The man that thinks the nchisils
are not. good enough should set him
self about having them Improved. It
Is astonishing how much one person
can do to Improve the schools when
he sets himself about It. Henry K.
