The educational empha sis of the fair revealed that prolonged school terms, better school houses with efficient teachers and other movements such as the Tusketree An nual Negro Farmers' Conference are with all factors in helnlnar the ru ral Increase of Negroes to -realize the agricultural possibilities or them. It was evident that there was a growing desire for better livestock and the growing of ample food pro ducts for the home.

Such feature helping the rural and urban masses of Negroes to help themselves, families and communities, will be the oustandlng signs of the Negro' progress in the agricultural district of this section.

ATLANTA .UNIVERSITY .PAGEANT STAGED IN BOSTON. Boston. Mass., Dec 7. The ' people of Boston, have demonstrated an ad mirable way of raising a handsome sum on the benefit of one of the farmer educational institution for the race. They gave a fine pageant In Symphany, Hall. The pageant, which took nearly two hours for it presentation, wa "ailed "The Open Door." It pictured the evolution of the black race from It primitive condition in the African Jungle, through slavery to the goal of even higher education, incidnntly suggesting the struggles of the young of the race in common with all other against the allurement of frivolity t'.nd of other form of merely animal enjoyment of life. The audience had many of the most cultured white people of the city. Every one of the hundred per former and member of a big chor us had some African blood in their veins, though many of them were as white a two-thirds nf the Caucasian portion of the audience It Is a worthy tribute to report that never has a pageant been given in Boston which evinced more artia tice taste In Its theme or stage set tings, or which was Interpreted by performers . showing a greater amount o& appreciation of the true spirit of tRe production and the abil ity to appeal more deeply to the heart of the audience. The pageant waa preceded by ( minute of admirable singing of (fi red Negro melodies by a mixed cho us of nearly 100 voices, led by E. 8. Boatner, Ernest Hayes being ganist and Barbara F. Grimes, plar The entire pageant had appropt Interpretive music played by an chestra, led by Clarence C. White, first episode of the spectacle, a rade of African warrior with club and shield, and a mock -bat with spears for the tdificatl the black king, "Ignorance." greatly applauded, a waa the so episode, in which handsome worn barbaric oriental costumes laid offerings at the feet of the king. The episode picturing female slave- picking cotton under the crack of the slave driver' lash, while they croon ed pathetic Gospel songs, wa dee) affecting. - Education, a beautiful female et acter Impersonated by Mis Alice J ginbotham, who kindled the spark ambition In the heart of the alav dominated the latter half of the a; tacle and aroused again and at long bursts of applause by the i dences of Inspiration with which Infused her splendid role. History, a sort of Shakeaper chorus, announcing the coming eve wa well represented by Ralph C man. Mildred Davenport, aa, Phil dnrer, and Glady Brown, the rum: berttc girl, gave charming portra their characters. There were a nu ber of beautiful dances, executed a rarely artistic manner by you. girls. ' Y i -')(
