VOLUME X. FARMERS' CONVENTION AT LIN COLN INSTITUTE. Objects and Aim. PRESIDENT ALLEN'S ADDRESS. The Fourth Annual Farmers' Con vention of Lincoln Institute was called to order at 9 a. m., Novermber 10, by Dr. B. F. Allen, president. "America" with piano and orchestral accompaniment was sung . with en thusiasm by the large audience of students and visiting friends from the lty. i The newly organized but already moug Lincoln Institute band played ieveral stirring and patriotic airs, b "Stars and Stripes," "Uncle Sam." tc. ma milium miuress was men giv en by Dr. Allen. As a preliminary Remark he stated that one of the main jcbjects of the Convention was to hnw thA cttnrionta QacAmhlo1 iY,t rut. ue of farm life! the dignity of labor; and to correct prevalent erroneous Impression relative to working in the soil. During the address the president referred to the wonderful resources of Missouri; the value of Its land per acre; and urged the- students to look forward to the purchase of some of that land or, to take up government land and work upon It. Ke urged the study of Political Economy that they might learn the laws of wealth; the laws of profit; of production and con sumption, and entreated them to be come producers as well as consum ers. He spoke of the necessity of building up excellent communities in various parts of the state; of putting brain into one's work; and empha sizing the fact that the Negro must learn to have something that other people need if he hopes to demand proper respect from the world at large. He deplored the mortgage system which so many seem to Invite, and urged the Improvement of home life In every way. With literature at re duced rates, rural delivery, telephone connections, etc, there is today no excuse for Ignorance on the part of the farmer. The speaker did not wish to be un derstood as telling every boy to go to the farm, but the race must have its quota of intelligent farmers, working with up-to-date Implements and labor saving devices, if it is to bo able to stand the competition - of American life. He thought the Negro should ac quire stability and the desire to ac cumulate; that he should not change his position too frequently without knowing a good reason for making the chango, and that in everything we undertake, we should strive to measure up with the best; in other words ho should give intelligent ser vice and the best that is within us In every line of work. Ho feared that the Negro boy Is not keeping up with the Negro girl In any line of work and urged the boys to put forth greater efforts. After the song, "Columbia," had been sung with characteristic energy President Allen called for speakers from the student body representing various counties of the Btate, and states of the Union. Among the re sponses were the following: Callaway and Boone Benjamin Winn. Buchanan Percy Robinson. Cole Janette Howell. Howard Richard Jaokson. Jackson Howard Illckerson. Johnson Grant Tayse. I Marion Alice Shropshire. Randolph Walter Ylley. Ray tawrence Klmbrough. St. Francois Kltsy Townsend. St. Louis Ledlle Ford. Saline Morton Henderson. Southwest Missouri Merrrs.

A Scotch minister instructed his clerk, who sat among the congrega tion, during service, to give a low whistle if anything in her sermon ap peared to be exaggerated. On hear ing the minister say: "In those days there were snakes fifty feet long," the clerk gave a subdued whistle. "1 should have said thirty feet," added the minister. Another whistle from the clerk. On sonsultlng Thompson's Concordance," said the minister, "I see the length is twenty feet." Still another whistle; whereupon the preached leaned over and said In a stage whisper: "Ye can whistle as much as ye like MasPherson, but I'll no take anlther foot off for anybody!" . In Crimean Timet. In Crimean times (says the "Tat tler") the Highland regiments were so full of Hiberlans that many stories were current exploiting the fact. One gallant Scottish colonel, It was said, resolved to take the sense of the reg iment on the vital question of adopt ing the plaid as an essentlnl part of the uniform. When the orderly came to report the result, the colonel was scandalized to find that only two of his men favored the suggestion, "And who are there two gallant Highland ers?" he asked. "Ooch!" replied the orderly, "sure It's Corporal O'Brien an' Private O'Callaghan, sorr!" Miss Lovey I'm quite positive that he loves me deeply. Miss Wise How do you know? Miss Lovey Oh, I can tell by the sighs when he Miss Wise My dear girl, you can't gauge the depth of a man's love by its sighs. Philadelphia Press. A LITTLE CHILD. He that is to life beguiled By the clinging of a child Hath, I know, great store of grace, And with Love a dwelling place; For all heaven hath dreamed anj smiled In the sweet face of a child. Frank L. Stanton. FALL TIME IN THE MOUNTAINS. It is fall time in the mountains, And the winds aro singing low. While the verdure, green In summer, Turns to red and yellow glow. Leaves are falling from the aspen, And the pineennes tumble down; Creeping Ivy, once so lusty, Now is seated and tinted brown. Faded flowers droop and wither In the shadow o ft lie pine, And the columbine lies dying At the hoar frost's gteedy shrine. Needle-pointed verdue flutters From the pinion to the earth There to lie until it mingles With the dust that gave it birth. Music-throated birds have vanished From the canons and the crest Where they sung through all the sum mer Where they built their brooding nest. Merry laughing streams that gambol Over rocky pebbled bed Seem to join ihe winds In singing Farewell requiems for the dead. It is fall-time in the mountains, When the red and yellow hue Harmonize in perfect colors With the skies of azure blue. No human hand e'er painted No picture has been found That can touch the grand old moun tains When the leaves are on the ground. A. U.
