The valentine party was a complete

One of the most enjoyable and In

Institution Is the practice. Inaugurated
by President Allen, of calling forth
from the students assembled at din
ner Items of interest gleaned from the
dally papers and current magazines.
This process occurs dally after the
dinner and Is attended by many good
results. We predict that when these
students have established homes of
their own, the effects will still re

writer of great fame. Mr. Dunbar
died of consumption last Friday at his
house in Dayton, Ohio. Mr. Dunbar
wus born In Dayton. June 27. 1872 and
educated In the public sohool of Day
ton. He became an author at the
age of 18 and contributed largely to
noted magazines und newspapers. Mr
Dunbar possessed more than ordinary
ambition and several white men of
note came to his rescue. With this
encouragement he pursued his work
with vigor until he achieved national
fame. Mr. Dunbar spent a consider
able time in London where he was en
tertulned by many of the leading
literary clulm of the city and his work
received favorable comment at the

Principal R. T. Coles, of the Car
rlson School, wus asked by our re
porter the other day as to the bene'
fit the girls are receiving from the
Domestic Science Department of the
school. He said, "I am well satis
fled with results thus far. That Is
one of my favorite departments of
the school und I pay a great deal of
attention to it. A,t present we have
about eighty-five girls taking a course
in cooking and practical house-keep-
ing. Miss Robinson, the efficient
teacher of that department, Is thor
oughly competent and much Interest
ed iu the work. It will pay any one
to visit her classes and notice the
interest the girls take In the train
Ing. For example tho following Is a
part of the first year's coutse: twi
lectures a week on care of kitchen

und kitchen utensils, sweeping, dust
ing, care of brooms, brushes and
dusters; scrublng floors, window
cleaning, silver polishing, care of din
ing room, bed room ventilation, and
care of kerosene lamps. The first
year's course in cooking, consists of
the following, cooking of staple
breakfast dishes, bread making, table
laying and waiting breakfasts. ThlB
training has already begun to make
itself felt in . the home. For in Con
versation Willi many mothers, of
these girls, who by force of circum
stances are compelled to spent? a
great deal of time away from home,
have turned the house over entirely
to the phi and have noticed the dif
ference in Interest the girl manifests
now to what she did before having
hud the tralulng. '
A few weeks ago one of the Fifth
Grade girls, without u mother, was
ill and the teacher, with a few of
the girl's clasmates visited her home

their knowledge of housekeeping and

The much touted "Christian Gentle
man," B. Allen Morris, has rather pe
cullar records in love affairs. Al
though a twice married man, he ar
dently woes two of Detroit's blushing
maidens at one and the same time.
About a year ago u correspondent
1n the Informer told in glowing terms
ubout the splendid Christian work a
stranger, by the name of B. Allen
Morris, was doing among the chil
dren of his neighborhood and about
organizing them into a club und train
ing them iu the noble work of the
Mr. Morris wus to all outward ap
pearances, u genlleinun of great piety
und high Christian character. No one
could blame the pretty maidens of
Bethel church for saying that Brother
Morris looked good to them, and when
two of Bethel's female members
seemed to be the elect of the polished
gentlman, they were looked upon with
envy. It wus said that Brother Mor
ris had become engaged to both of
the fuir young ladies, und indeed, wus
about to lie married to one of them
when a letter wus received In this
city from Kansas City, Mo., that rends
in part us follows:
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 21. 190.".
Dear Sir: I am inquiring for my
husband. He Is quite a church work
er among the young people. His
nume is Burt Allen Morris. We were
married here In Kansas City the 29th
day of June, 19n:i. We moved to Chi
cago. After a month he deserted me;
then after a time he came back to
Kansas City; then he deserted me
here and went back to Detroit. Now
1 heur he Is married to some woman
In Detroit. He hasn't got any divorce
from me. I am still his wife. He
was a Mason and belonged to tho
West port liOdge here, but he Is sus
pended now. Will you kindly Inform
me as to this woman, her name and
address. I cannot understand my hus
band's treatment of me.
The startling nature of the contents
of this letter sturted nn Investigation
that has resulted in uncovering a
rather checkered career on the part
of Morris, who only last fall matricu
lated in Wllberforce University, In
tending to enter the ministry.
Mr. Morris Is alleged to have been
mnrrled In Chicago November 1, 1899,
by Rev. J. F. Thomas, nnd again June
29th, 1904, in Kansas City, Mo., by
Rev. F. J. Peck. Deserted wife No.
2 In Chicago and came to Detroit.
Wife No. 1 applied for divorce :n Chi
cago, but dropped It upon learning of
his engagements In this city, and cer
tain Detroit maiden consider now
themselves exceeding fortunate that
they were not duped Into marrying
the oft time groom.
The authorities of Wllberforce were
communicated with nnd when they
asked an explanation from the gay
young man, he declared that he would
straighten the matter up to their sat
isfaction, nnd left the University for
that purpose, saying he was coming
to Detroit. He has not been seen In
this city, and his present whereabouts
are unknown. He Is n tall, brown
skinned ntHn of about thirty years,
with pleasing manners nnd gentle
manly bearing.

This title parable by an unknown
author teaches Its own lesson:
A hen trod on a duck's foot. She
did not mean to lo It, and it did not
hurt the duck much; but the duck
said. "I'll pay you for that!" So the
duck flew at the old hen, but as she
did so her wings struck an old goose,
who stood close by.
"I'll pay you for that!" cried the
goose, and she flew at the duck; but
as she did so her foot tore tho fur
of a cat who was Just then In the
"I'll pay you for that!" cried th
cat, and she started for the goose;
but as she did so her claw caught lv
the wool of n sheep.
"I'll pay you for that!" cried the
sheep, and she rah at the cat, but as
she did so her foot hit the foot of a
dog who lay In tho sun.
"I'll pay you for that!" cried he
and jumped at the sheep; but as he
did ho his leg struck an old cow who
stood by Hie gale.
"I'll pay you for that!" cried she,
and alio ran nt thn dog; but nn she
did so her horn grazed the skin of a
horse who stood by n tree.
"I'll pay you for that!" cried he,
and tie rushed at the cow.
What n noise there was! The horse
flew at the cow, and the cow at the
dog, and the dog nt the sheep, and
the sheep at the cat, and the cat at
