Oklahoma City, Dec. 9. Many of
the farmers of these parts are feel
ing somewhat broken-hearted over
the prices of cotton. It is reported
that some of them are leaving their
crops in the field and seeking other
employment for . finance, while some
are turning the stock In the field
for pasture. It appears that his
appalling condition should be remed
ied or the country will be made to
suffer in proportion the farmer is
neglected. Mr. Edw. Perkins Chi
cago, 111., is here In the Interest of
of his magazine, "The Busincs Men's
Bulletin." Rev. A. M. Johnson ( the
efficient pastor of the Calvary Bap
tist Church) went over the top Sun
day on the subject: "God's Due
Bills." Never a man preached like
the man. He put himself In a class
the subject. Sunday Dec iz, is rany

The slogan Is $10,000. Come over
to Macedonia and help them. The
teachers report a ver" successful
session at Tulsa last week at the
Teachers State Convention. The moth
ers club program at the Tabernacle

was a decided success. Special
mention should be made of the Cal

were accorded them and they left,

Tuskegee Institute, Ala., Dec 7.
One of the most striking Indications
of the Negro Farmer's ability to be
ence for safe farming and rural bet
come susceptible to wholesome influ
ence for safe farming and rural bet
terment was the splendid fair, under
the auspices of the Macon County
Colored Fair Association, held at Tus
kegee Institute, Nov. 11-12.
It was the concensus of opinion of
hundred of people attending the Fair
that the attractive appearance of the
exhibits confirmed the gospel of com
bining common senile with farming
methods which would In every case
give best results ultimately.
The remarkable products exemplified
that the Negro rnrmera of Macon
County are learning to put brains In
the soil thereby helping to solve the
problems which face the farmer at
this period. 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. Devices, beautify
ing the Jiome and saving step of the
women in the home, created much
Tuskegee' Influence in helping the
Negro to express hlmsel through
songs was again accentuated. Wil
liam Dawson, a student of Tuskegee
Institute, who has native ability as
a musician, was given first prise for
his work which was among the musi
cal exhibit.
This fair will be an annual event.
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.

the possibilities of making the Howard-Lincoln

and the Army Navy football
games, Dr. Scott took up, along with
his other important duties, the man
agement of the detail in connection
With this game so a to put the -whole

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
