Alongside with the other competent teachers of the New Lincoln High School, Prof Walden aa one of the new teachers stands In a very conspicuous light. Mr. Walden was born In the town of Markham, V.rglnla and at tended the public school of his native town. Then he attended Wayland Seminary and College In Washington 1).

Leav ing Roger-Williams because of the de structive fires to that Institution oc urlng Jan. 24. 1905, and May 22. 1905, he was given the chair in the depart ment of industries and in additions to that teaching some studies in nat ural science, particularly college phvslcs. tjurlng the years of his teaching service, he has been improving all he time taking two special courses, one in X-ray and Physlco Chemical Radiography and the other in Miner. logy in the University of Chicago. JProf. Walden is a staunch Christian nd a follower of the faith, and since giving his valuable service to his spe cial school, he has also begun to take n active part in the Y. M. C.

Prof. Walden has a very nice family, composed of a boy and Rlrl, and a wife of very pleasing man ner, intellect and refinement In Mr. Walden the people and the community at large have a very val uable adjunct to our new High School's corps of teachers and ho should be given every consideration. LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES. The members of the Athletic Asso ciation under the able management of Professor West are preparing for the annual contests upon the gridiron. Sounders, otherwise "Big Jim," Young, Richardson, Johnson, and many oth ers well known In former victories, are all here In good shape. The religious bodies, the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. societies are In flourishing conditions and aid mater ially in elevating the tone of student life. The concert given by the Y. M. A., on the 12th Inst., under the su pervision of Professor Reynolds was financially and otherwise a great suc cess. Friday, November 9th, the date set for the Annual Farmers' Conventions, draws night, and we hope many are planning to be present. At no pre vious time In the world's history has that ancient and honorable occupa tion known as agriculture received the sclent if 'c attentions that has been ac corded It within the last decade; and yet, even with the present advanced Ideas on the subject, farming meth ods today, ns some one has well said, are little more than "a slight scratch ing of the soil." To render thU same "scratching" more complete, more productive of results. Is the aim of the Farmers' In stitutes and Conventions that have multiplied within the last few years. By means of the Ideas thus dissemi nated the white farmer has been en abled to make two grains grow where one grew before, and it is Just this "A GREAT LEADING NEGRO WO MAN SPIRIT AMONG US." 'A Gifter Devine to Move the Negroes to Righteousness. Great human spirits are born, not made. Go ye forth Into the highways and byways and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Fear not, for the Lord thy God Is with thee. He will lead you through the valley and through shadows of death. So It is with the spirit of Annie E. Brown. Inspired to preach the Gospel when only seven years of age, she was sent forth to active work 16 years ago. Since that time thousands have been brought to their knees under the magic influence of her melodious voice. She is lr reslstable because she Is one of the greatest evangelists living, having preached in n'l the largest cities in the east. She conies here from New York City where she has had great success. In one single meeting over six hun dred were converted. Mrs. Brown Is a Virginian by birth, knowledge that the Negro farmer must have If he Is to become part and parcel of American civilization. Therefore let us come together for a practical discussion of farms and farm life; how to secure arms; how to im prove farm life and thus render It more attractive to the boy and girl of today.

" 'I want these floors polished,' he said to the man. as he led him about the house. 'They are. you perceive, fine ones. They ought to come out as lustrous as rosewood. Do you think you're capable of doing them justice? OKe me some proof of your thorough competence.' "'That's easily done, sir,' the polish er replied. 'You just go anil Hsk Col.

A professor well known In the sci entific world recently hit upon a novel method of capturing a pet monkey which had escaped from the houso and taken refuge In the branches of a tall tree. He looked at the animal through a pair of opera glasses, pointing the small end at him, and then retired to a short dlstauce, leaving the opera (Classes on the ground. The Imitative monkey descendod from the tree, and. taking the opera glasses, gazed In a similar manner, at his master, who seemed to the deluded ape to be many yards distant. The monkey, continuing to look, through the same end of the opera glasses, supposed his master, who was walking slowly toward htm, to be still a long way off, when the pro fessor, reaching out, secured the chain and led the victim back to his cage. The Part of True Wisdom. The freest government, f It Smld exist, would not be long acceptable If the tendency of the laws was to create a rapid accumulation of prop eity In a few hands. In the nature of things, those who have not prop erty ami see their neighbors possessed nf much more thau they think them to need cannot be favorable to laws made for the protection of such prop erty. When this class becomes nu merous It grown clamorous. II looks on property as Its prey and plunder, and is naturally ready at all times foi violence and revolution.

Where Shelley Wrote "The Cenci." On the walls of the palace on the Corse, where Shelley lived for a lime, until the death of his child, the Koman municipality have affixed llm now usual tablet. And this tablet shows a very curious little misunder standing, and divergence of verbal hubiu. betweeu Italy and. Lutlaud In the State. MIMJIEK i:t "Here." says the Inscription. Shelley wrotf 'The ('end.' " Hut the winds of the Italian are "La Cruel." Now. no Knglishmnu could possibly read Shelley's title but as a family name "The Cenci," In the plural. That an Knglishinuu should call Heat rice "the Cenci" In the feminine singular, as one may speak of "la Duse" or "la Paul," Is altogether inconceivable. To the Italian municipal mind it seemed that Shelley naturally called his hero Ine and his tragedy "La Cenci" What u pity that none but editors decline English articles! Did Vou Know This?

Near Yineland, N. .1 . there lived a German farmer who brewed his own beer, the superiority of which he was continually proclaiming, though no other perron ever enjoyed an oppor t unity of testing Its merits. A young neighbor made a wager that he could trick the farmer Into giving him a taste of the much vaunted drink. The youth visited the Germun one Sundav afternoon and the conversation was deftly stcrcd around to home brewed beer. The young man boasted that his father brewed beer that could not be equaled. The farmer at once ve hmently ordered up a mug of his ow n favorite brew. When It appeared, the German raised It to his nps, and, the other hand pressing his stomach, drank every drop without taking breath. Then holding the empty mug to the disappointed young fellow he said, gravely: "You say your fader's beer Iss so better lis mine! .lost schluell dot mug!"- l.liiincott s Magazine.
