CHARLES E. STUMP, THE FAST
FOR THE BROAD AX. HAS IN A
This world is full of surprises, and
you may wake up any time and find
yourself in the midst of a surprise.
I saw a post card which said ''Life is
just one blank thing after another."
I am getting to the place where I
am understanding some of these
things, and the more I understand
them, the more 1 am well, just
When you pick up the daily papers,
you arc forced at times to become
disgusted with human nature, with
human beings, and wonder why God
doesn't just shut up the earth and
send them all to heaven or the other
place Murders, lynchings, Ku Klux
Klan, a lawless organization which is
liable to throw this whole country in
to civil strife, burning of human be
ings, men married and taking up time
uith other men's wives, and women
taking away the husbands of other
.women, men and women destroying
each other's families, men killing
(women and women killing men, and
many other things are taking place in
( this world. There may not be men
crough for all the women, but there
are women enough for every man
without a man invading the home of
another man. and being sent to h 1
just where he belongs. With the
number of single women, widows and
others, there is no excuse for a man
taking up the time of another fel
But why take up time with this
when the world is o full of it, and
then at the same time men arc being
killed for participating in such folly,
until they are ju.t keeping the devil
so busy that there i but little time
left for him to take a rest.
While these things arc going on,
there are men and women, too, who
arec making good, and as I tramp over
this country and come in touch with
them, I am forced to say, "What
wonderful things the Lord God hath
wrought." I have taken an inventory
of the world, o to peak. for the past
few day. and you will believe me
when 1 tell you I have been going
some, and found the gossip monger
as busy as the deil himself, getting
in his deadly poisonous fangs into
the hearts-of industrious, busy people.
It trikes me that I was right in
Topeka, Kansas, when I took my
pen in hand to write ou a few lines
to inform you of my lualth. There
I was with Bishop Parks and others.
I told you something about them, and
whc.ii I got through I said goodnight
nnd closed the I. tier. That was a
real busy, big corference.
When I got to Kan-a Cit. 1 spent
the night at the home of Dr. and
Mr, p. W. DcLylr. and it was a busy
day for me. 1 wtnt in town early in
the morning in company with Dr. J.
R. Ransom, and nut at the Lincoln
High School, ilrs. Xon-tie Davis, and
Miss Betha Garrett, two of the lead
ers in Calantbe oi Kansas. We had
lunch at the school prepared in the
tlotne.stic science department of the
school, and it was fine. 1 want to
congratulate the head of the depart-
nient as well a Prof. J. R. E. Lee.
,vjJO ; one of tht mo,st noted cdu-
wav ; town antj ;,,. s learning the
newspaper game and would like for
him to come to the baseball game,
and the ne.t thing. Prof. Lee told
me to go wit'i Mrs. Davis and Miss
Qarrctt to set- the game.
WINGED HIS WAY
TO FORT WORTH,
waitc toted us over in her automobile
I am not used to seeing men ball it,
hut I was on hand. The man met
us at the gate, escorted us in without
cost, and put us in a, box. We were
covered all over with screens to keep
the balling from hitting us.
After I watched. I decided that ball
is no longer a play, but it is a. sci
ence. It is work, and believe me you
must keep your eyes open. One fel
low gets in the box they said, but I
did not see any box, but at any rate
he was called the pitcher, but believe
me he threw that ball like he was
trying to knock the devil out of some
one, and a fellow would strike at it.
At times he would not strike, but
there was a white man who would
say strike, and call him right out.
Now when the game is on, you
watch the fellow at the bat, the
pitcher and the catcher, and the bat
ter keeps his eye on the pitcher, the
basemen, the fielders and the short
stop, and his aim is to make first
base, then second, but often he may
get to first but get put out before
he reaches the second, and then he
may make second and never sec third.
or even some fellows got on third
and could not make it home. I just
kept them two women busy until
some fellow declared that I must be
crazy, and the police said that I was
not crazy but "nutty," whatever that
is, but I told him I was learning how
to be a reporter, and pulled out my
pencil and paper and wrote for wKo
should last the longest. I told that
policeman if he got in my way I
would write him up. and I think
Grand Worthy Counsellor Mrs. Davis
told him that I was the most writ
ingest man in the world, and there
must be something in it.
I think these ladies will not care
to go to another ball game with me.
But I decided that life is only a game
of ball and will talk about it later.
I then went to St. Louis, and found
that Prof. Aaron E. Malone was get
ting to be himself. He is improving
and it is thought that soon he will
be in the office, but he is not going
to do much office work or any other
kind this fall. He is going to rest
and get back his health.
There were busy times around Poro
the day I was there, for they were
fixing for a grand wedding, and it is
all over now and the groom is cele
brating his honey bee moon, and the
bride is enjoying it with him. The
bride was the bookkeeper for Poro
College. Mrs. Vclma Perkins, former
ly of Nashville. Tenn., but has been
writing down things in the Poro Col
lege books for a long time, so when
she decided to marry, believe me Mrs.
Malone just put the big pot in the
little one, and there was an "Old
Aunt Dolly" time in that Poro Col
lege. The groom was Raymond R.
Dai. who is connected with the
Pennsylvania railroad, and is the son
of the late James A. Davis, of Nash
ville, Tenn., who was a leader in the
A. M. E church, and a man of great
ability. Now these two people of
brains have united -and arc happy. I
congratulate both of them, and may
they live long.
1 1 made it to Springfield, Alton.
Chicago, and believe me my eyes have
been made to fly wide open in Chi
cago. I got in company with Charles
Stewart. Jr., and he invited me to go
with him to pay a tribute to James
Ncal, the father ofEarle Ncal. Mr.
Ncal had just paid the debt that we
all must pay. and as he was the father
of Earl. Charles felt it his dujy to go
and say a word of cheer to the widow
and her on. That boy has some real
horse sense, and without a doubt he
is the son of his father, and if he
keeps on the world will know him.
He is going to make his mark. He
is now making pictures.
While in this neighborhood I had
the pleasure of visiting the home of
the Overton Hygienic Mfg. Co- and
it is indeed a wonderful plant. It is
no plaything, but "believe me it ranks
with the largest in this country. Thc
used to manufacture the High Brown
face powder in fact they are doing
that right now and then they get
out all kinds of toilet waters, per
fumes, face powders and everything
else that goes to produce beauty.
Anthony Overton, of Kansas City.
Mo., is the father of the Overton
Hygienic Manufacturing Company. It
had its inception in his fertile brain,
1898, just making a baking powder,
spreading, spreading, until today .they
make 115 articles, and it doth not yet
appear all it shall be. They do up
into the thousands of dollars worth
of business daily, and not a member
of the other race connected with it
With that big business, Mr. Overton
is courteous, and ever ready to take
time with a visitor. He made me so
welcome until I felt like I was some
pumpkins, I went over much terri
tory in getting in all the departments,
and they are strictly business people,
for which I am proud.
Now ypu see I am getting to be
some pumpkins, and I thought so
when Mr. Overton carried tne around
over his place of business and I saw
all the clerks at work, and then the
business going on, and even met the
young man who knows how to make
all those things. Wonderful brain
power, and all belongs to my race. I
just felt like shouting.
I am getting ready now to go to
California next fall to the National
Baptist convention. It is going to be
a big meeting, and so many people
just like I am getting ready to go.
Y.ou will be pleased to know that
Attorney W. H. Harrison is now on
the Lord's side. In other words, he
has connected himself with the Na
tional Baptist convention, and in the
future will be found right with us.
One by one they are returning home
You will hear next of Dr. C H
Clark, pastor of Ebcnczcr Baptist
church, getting right with his people
A man may follow wrong for awhile,
but when his eyes are opened he will
flee from it and get right.
We have not been abusing any one,
but going right on. While on this
permit me to say that I have been in
touch with a great tooth docter
dentist and he has half-soled some
teeth for me. I can't sec how Dr
O. I. Hawkins of 3502 State street
can dig and dig in your teeth without
hurting, but that's what he has been
doing for me. He was assisted by
an efficient young woman. Miss Ilcne
Love, who was born 'way down in
Texas, but who is well educated and
she is going to be one of them tooth
dentist-doctors too. I shall say more
about them later, as my time is up
Write to me, care Dr. N. T. Wallis.

Fundamental Buslnes Principles,
From a purely coldblooded business
point of view, honesty is the best pol
icy. To treat the jther man as you
"would have him treat you Is an equal
ly fundamental business principle.
This does not mean that you should
surrender your rights or neglect to
avail yourself of your opportunities.
It simply means that In the game of
business, the same rules or sportsman
ship should prevail as In a boxing bout.
In a match of golf, or In a football
