We have completed tlie course of another twelve months and our work becomes a bit or history. Whatever victories and failures have come In our pathway, shall be used us an advantage to future plans. No or ganization In its infancy eseat.es difficulties and hardships. This his been no less true of this year's work. Yet, the paralyzing memories ol tlie year will serve as "pep" and "glir-ver" in building a stronger organi '.I't'ioi to cotribute more worthily A 'he welfare of Colored men and boys, Hence we submit our yearly report as follows: Summary if Tear's Work.

The club has progressed with much success during the year. The President received splendid supjiort from its members. Several social functions were given by the club. In the regular meetings school prob lems were discussed; 'issues that effected the Interest of the club and other helpful matters for the culture and development of every member. Talks were given on "Choosing i Life's Wirk, Good Habits, Keeping Fit and Education." F.mployed Hoy' Club. No group of boys seemed more eager than those of this club. They met regularly and were easily man aged. A number of "Winnie roasts, wrestling and boxing bouts were tin center of amusement for them. Three boys of th'iH group were encouraged to take up their studies at school. Very favorable reports have hern received from them. Their base-ball team has already been organized for the season. Most of these boys at tend church and S. S. services. Juvenile Court. Many cases have been handled through this department. The co operation of parents and juvenile officers has been quite gratifying Although much good has been done there remains ample room ' for ; larger piece of serv'ice. It is worthy to note that the seventeen boys pro bated this year not one has been re arrested for any offense. ltase Hall Team. Early in January several young men who were not privileged to as sume their studies in college met and organized. The basket ball spirit grew rapidly. Many schools organ ized teams and asked for equipment. Basket ball equipment was placed on the Hall Street Park partly at the expense of the "Y" and young men of the team. Several games were played .the final game w'lth Fort Worth, Texas, was lost with a scoore of 20-22. Homo Study Courses and Scholarships. These courses were offered to all ex-service men. Only ten of our hoys through this office took advantage of these appointed. There were grnnud scholarships at Meharry. two at Prai rie View and one at Morehouse Theo logical Seminary. No scholarship granted was less than one hundred ($100) dollars. Father and Son Services Hud Ha li quet s. The splendid co-operation g'lven by pastors relative to the J'ather and Son observance was worthy of com mendation. The reports showed that each service was quite profitable to the men, boys and churches. More than, eight hundred (800) men and boys attended these meetings. Be sides two banquets were given with pleasing results. One father said: "As a result of the Father and Son Service his boy made a pledge to attend church regularly." Who knows but what there were many others ftke-mlnded. Community Work. The congenial co-operation' with other agencies has given strength and character to our community work. The success of Negro. Health Week, wh'ich was helpful in a large degree, to our people and community life, was due to the fact mentioned above. Moreover out of Negro Health Week grew the necessity of a free clinic for Colored people. The in terest in boy life has given vision of larger preparation for the boys which has provided a need of play parks and athletic equipment. The Interest In the character of the work rendered this year was greatly augmented over that of last year, yet we regret to note that financial conditions dropped below pi tr. Co-operation received from oth er agencies has been both encourag ing and gratifying. The attitude of a larger group of men and boys has been attracted toward association work. Information relative to Y. M. C. A. work has been distributed, speeches delivered and crtlcles writ ten on different phases of it, all of which has had a tendency to make clearer the character of "Y" work. Physical activities, mental alertness, moral culture and spiritual develop ment, so strongly emphasized by the young Men's Christian Association program makes it peculiarly fitted to better boy life and enrich man- E.MINK.NT MUTATOR COMING.

Admission, adults 25 cents, children, 15 cents. hood, now and during future years. It is our business to produce men like Christ, and this can lie done with a harmonious relation and co operation with home, church and school. There Is no doubt that such a complete program or culture and development will find ample space for operation on a larger scale than the past year among the young men of Dallas. As men of brawn and brain let us make this larger pro gram possible by working earnestly and subjecting ourselves obediently to God's will. J. D. RICE, "Y" Secretary. PKOF. N. W.

INGALLS' TRIBUTE TO GRASS Beautiful Word Painting o' Kansat Statesman That Is Recognized as a Classic. Lying In the sunshine among tin buttercups and dandelion of May, scarcely higher In Intelligence him the minute tenants of that mimic wilder ness, our earliest recollections are ot grass; and when tin- 111 ful fever is ended and tlie foolish wrangle of tlit market and forum Is closed, grass heals over thf; scar which our descent Into the bosom of the earth has made, and the carpet of the infant becomes the blanket of 'the dead. Grass is the forgiveness of Nature her constant benediction.. Fields trampled with bnttle, saturated with blood, torn with the ruts of cannon, grow green attain with grass, and carnage Is forgotten. Streets abandoned by traffic become grass-grown like rural lanes and are obliterated. Forests decay, harvests perish, tlo-.vers vanish, but grass Is Im mortal. Beleaguered by the sullen hosts of winter, It withdraws Into the Impregnable fortress of Its subter ranean vitality and emerges upon the first solicitation of spring. Sown by the winds, by the wandering birds, propagated by the subtle agriculture of the elements which are Its minis ters mid servants, It softens the rude outline of the world. It bears no bla zonry of bloom to chsnu the senses with fragrance or splendor, but Its homely hue Is more enhancing than the Illy or the rose. It yields no fruit In earth or air, and yet should lis har vest fall for a single year, famine would depopulate the world. From a "Collection of the Writings of John James Ingnlls." THEY'LL GET YCU SOME WAY City Scalawags Hard to Beat, Accord ing to Testimony of Visitor From Jimpson Junction. "If them Infernal scalawags up there In Kay See can't get you onf way they will another!" disirrmitledl.v asserted the gent from Jimpson June tlon, who was just back from n brief slay In the Big Burg.

Kansas City Star. Ribbon Fish's Oddities. "The ribbon fishes." said John T. Nichols, head of the department of re cent fishes nt the Museum of Natural History, according to the New Yorli Times, "are perhaps the least known of the larger marine species. They me elongate, flattened from side tc side with a mnnelllie fin on tho back. Specimens nre 15 to 20 feet long, be ing from 10 to 12 Inches deep, and nbont an Inch or two broad at theli thickest part. They have big eyei and smnll mouths." Very few specimens ever come te light and these are usually washed up on some shore or are found Routing nt the surface in a dead or dying con dition. The larger ones nre known to grow to be 20 feet or so In length and very likely attnln a considerably greater size, hut this Is a matter ol pure (Onjecture. Young Individuals of some of the species but a few inches long nre not rarely met with near the surface. Huge Stone In Roosevelt's Honor. The greatest chunk of stone ever quarried or transported In the United States or anywhere else on earth Is going Do hewnand brought to Washington for the monumental Theo dore Roosevelt national memorial. The memorial is to take the form of a lion, some 80 by 40 feet In dimensions, ar.d It Is to be carved by Carl Ethan Akeley out of a solid block of rock. Where the stone Is to come from ap pears not yet to be determined. One nuthorlty suggests It may he neces sary to build a special railroad and equipment to bring It to Washington.
