My blood is red, my blood is sweet, That is why my life's complete. My heart is good, my nerves are fine. That is why I'm so divine. With muscles strong, if work is long, I sweat the whole day with a song. So when I quit the day's turmoil. I find that I am fir, from toil. My skin is black, my heart is pure, All the better I endure The summer's heat, the winter's cold; Strength makes health and that is gold. Prejudice has made me work. And if to have, I must not shirk; And so I play the game so time. Without a flame to make a name. I'm never sad, 'most always glad. Don't fret for what I haven't had. Madness makes me feci peeved, de ceived. And grieved, and never relieved. , So what's the use- to make excuse And spend a life in cruel abuse? Sometimes a fate can cause a hate That never ends until too late. And then it turns, bruises and burns. And costs more than a fellow earns. It's best, my boy, to have some joy. And all the idle hours employ In making hay every day, It makes life pay and opens the way To greater things and brings You up among the kings, and rings Through ages a song of cheer. Makes you have no earthly fear. My blood is sweet, my blood is red, I have knowledge in my head. I have blood that's sweet and strong. Fills my life up with a song Helps me pass the whole day through Living circumspect and true. With a heart filled up With good, Helping all the ways I should; So when all my toil on earth is o'er, I need do nothing more. M. A. MAJORS. m&fc - - BWlk . 'nil 2m-" ' JET j.

Getting a large portion of our race to think seriously about the condi tions that appertain to them, and which must be overcome by us for the benefit of the rest of us is quite a job. A job which it may appear is not all profitable, and yet there is not enough money coined that could pay for such a valuable jervicc. But we must not lose heart, some of the men and women we know will ere long quit making foolsof themselves be fore cheap white folk. "Watchman." CHIEF RANGER ROBERT B.

Having a head and a heart full of good inten tions, but putting off to some long and distant day to do the things which you are able to do today. The race has staggered and stumbled over smooth roads for more than fifty years. We must not forirct that our success means doing the difficult things, and overcoming obstacles, and turning our defeats into victories. This requires toil, effort rightly' di rected with a determined spirit to win the coveted things, rather than have something to be done by others that we must do for ourselves. Worth makes the man: the want of it, the fellow, and all the rest is leather and prunella. "HOPEFUL MOSR arc not wasting your time, nor filling jour mind up with a lot of rot. "Reporter." For several months past there has been a controvcrscy between Chief Ranger Robert B. Glover, and the Trustees of Court General Robert Elliott, Ancient Order of Foresters, as to who had the right to supervise the property of the lodge and collect rents and other monies due to the Lodge During the controvcrscy Chief Ranger Glover seized control of J the property belonging to the Lodge located at 4336 and 4358 South State Street and 4644 and 4646 Champlain avenue, and collected rent for five months and refused to make any re ports to the trustees or turn over any money to the Lodge and contended that he had opened a special account at Binga's State Bank known as the Building Fund and was depositing all the money in the said fund. Upon in vestigation the Trustcs found that he, Robert Glover, had the so-called Ranger's conduct in handling the money of the Lodge and said Glover had no right to take charge of the Lodge's property and deposit the money to his own personal account and instructed him never again to de posit money belonging to the Lodge in his own name. Judge Torrison en tered an order prohibiting Glover from collecting any money or exer cising any control or authority over the Lodgcfs moneys collected and spent by him belonging to the Lodge, and to turn over to the Trustees all I property, the paper and money be longing to the Lodge. The court fur ther ordered that hereafter Lodge money be collected according to the laws of the State of Illinois and the laws of Ancient Order of Foresters. The order of the court was in har mony with the contentions and inter pretations of the law by Ellis & West- brook's firm. Mr. Gaines and Mr. Westbrooks of ConscI, and against the interpretations of Andrews and Cohen, attorneys for Chief Ranger Glover. "C." I BROTHER J. HAROLD WHITE R. W.

Glover, as his personal account with out any authority or order from the Lodge. The matter came up before the Lodge for action and the Chief Ranger, Robert 11. Glover, by use of steam-roller tactics forced through a motion which he contended gave him full authority to manage and collect rent from the aforesaid real estate. The members of the Lodge believed that they should have an attorney to advise them in matters concerning its real estate and property and unanim ously elected Attorney Harris B. Gaines of the firm of Ellis & West brooks as their attorney. Attorney Gaines advised the Lodge that under the laws of the Ancient Order of Foresters and the State of. Illinois, Chief Ranger Glover had no right to manage the said real estate and col lect and deposit money in his own name and mako contracts to bind the Lodge and pllcct commission from the Lodge. Chief Ranger Glover was displeased with Attorney Gaines' opin ion and advise and stated he did not want a N'cgro lawyer to advise him and that he would pay no attention to any opinion of a Negro lawyer. He stated he was being advist-d by a big firm of white lawyers in the loop and was satisfied he was being advised correctly. Chief Ranger Glo ver ignored the advice of Attorney Gaines and continued to collect the money of the Lodge and placed it in his private bank account. Henry S. Goins. Samuel Alston and George R. Woodson, knowing that Negro law yers studied in the same schools and from the same books as white lawyers ami had brains to think, took the ad vice of Attorney Gaines and demand ed that Glover withdraw the Lodge's money from his private account at Binga's State Bank and turn the same over to them.
