Hon. Ai D.

Now, iii' this bull contest- Mr. .

Thus Dr. Lemuel soon found himself on the ground with the bull in charge, having no respect what ever for pharmaceutical ability. The doctor is now compelled to call upon his rescued father to return Lhe kindness and the same is grant ed, whereby father and son are masters of the situation and except for a few scratches and lacerated :lothes they are Dantzlers just thc same. Now, Esquire Moorer has lerctoforc had chrage of Mr. Dantzler's congressional contests, md whether he has been consulted ar rptained in this case is among ny unknown quantities. However, iftcr thc fight Mr. Dantzler held a ;hort consultation with his son, who s a recent graduate of Meharry Medical College, as. to what dispo sition should bc made of "fighting mil." Dr. Dantzler, who seems to )e well versed in modern pharmacy, described a dose.o? hot lead, but o this the father disagreed, and vith a more economic view fo* a inal solution suggested that u? . mil be sold aiv'. ?he proceeds go to 'cotton choppers.''v" Dr. Nix, District Deputy Grand Chancellor of his domain, is now ashing his lodges and arranging! br thc meeting of the Grand ^odge, which meets in Abbeville, >.

The commencement program of the Theological school at Allem I University was an unique dem onstration of the class of work being done by the professors in the department. The graduation oration of Rev. Mercer L. Ram sey, of Greenwood, was the es sence of oratory, elocution, and logic. Ths.t he held his audience spell-bound on commencement day is well said. He deserves the degree|of B.D. which was con ferred upon him. No department in Allen is doing more excellent work and reaches a greaten need in the very life of the race and church than the theoi'" ?rical Fortf?eWs*f>iW bert has had the deanship of Al len University and his adminis tration is one of constructive work, Some able young men are in the field representing the work done in the department. Dr. Rembert is assisted in this good work by Prof. T. B. Nelson, who has the chair of Hebrew and Di dactic Theology. Bob Nelson is a real good scholar, quiet and un assuming. The support of the theological department is growing. One thousand dollars is given annual ly now from the general church and, it is said, that each confer ence in the state will give a schol arship that the scope of theologi cal training may be more far reaching as it affects the pulpits ?jf the A, M. E. church in South karolina. The commencement exercises it Allen last week were the best ;ver given out there, even the ' memies of Negro institutions Tianned solely by Negroes, say so. In my letter to The State a ' few days ago I made a mistake ' as to the number of graduates. I im reliably informed that there 1 were 48 to graduate from the L. 1 [. course, two given degrees of A, I B., one the degree of B.
