At various times during his 70 vears of life he has been cowpunch er. cattleman. Indian fighter and soldier. Barnes came east from California at the age of 17 with an appoint ment to Annapolis. Unable to enter f he naval academy because of his height—he is of short, stocky build —he enlisted in the army signal ■ orps. His first adventure was of a com ■dy nature, at Fort Myer. Va., where te was detailed to fire the sunset ,un. Wanting to do an extra good job. he put tn an extra charge of powder—as much, in fact, as the gun would hold. Every window in the post was shattered by the explosion! Then he was sent west to Fort \pache. Ariz.. just as the Apache Indians under Geronimo started their famous uprising of the early ‘0*3. CLOSE CALL Settlers for miles around took i-vfuge in the fort. The Indians ad vanced to the attack. Reinforce ments were necessary if hundreds of men. women and children were to be -.-aved from massacre Barnes volun roered to go for help. A civilian 'ioout, quartered at the post, was ilso sent for aid “There were two ways of getting 'trough the Apache lines,” said tkirnes, wa road and a trail. The •cout chose the road, and I took the •ail. I managed to slip by the Indians. WILL C. BARNES AS HE LIKES TO BE. made my way to the nearest troops, led them back, and all hands were saved. I didn't think much of my experience—just figured it was a good way of getting away from the fort! What was my surprise one day to receive a Congressional medal of honor!” After Geronimo surrendered to General Miles. Barnes left the army and started cattle raising, taking up his headquarters at Holbrook. Ariz. •'In those days,” he said, “cattle thieves were thicker than fleas on a Mexican dog. “One gang was particularly active —stole thousands from my herd. “We trailed the thieves into Colo rado and found the man who was buying the stolen animals. He claimed not to know they were stolen, but we proved it to him by] the altered brands. When we took j the cattle away ha was so enraged] at the thieves responsible for his loss that he greeted them on their return j with a reception committee of sheriffs and marshals! "They were tried under the Colo rado law, and the ringleader died In the penitentiary. If they had been returned to Arizona they would have received more summary treatment.** . After the forest service was or ganized in 1905 Barnes was asked by the government to take charge of i its grazing activities. He accepted. * and has been on the Job ever since. : THE GREAT AMERICAN HOME By Stanley /Oh3ohm BE CAREFUU l OF THAT / [PICTURE!- L HOORAY I QOT i HIM THE LAST FLY 9100,000 STRUCTURE DEDICATED AT GAMMON THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY. ATLANTA. kSA.,—An important step in t>he progress of Gammon The [ological Seminary, this city, was marked by the dedication of Thir kield Hall, beautiful and commodious administration and class room build ing just completed at a cost of $100,000. Three bishops of Methodist Episcopal Church took part in the impressive ceremonies. Bishop E. G. Richardson of Atlanta presided, Bishop Robert E. Jones of New Or leans delivered the dedicatory ad dress, and Bishop and Mrs. Thirkield resporidd. Bishop Jones in his address ex pressed vhe hope that the Seminary might continue to be a center for the promotion of a vital and ethical interpretation of Christianity, as against changeless tradition and in flexible dogma. He also made an impassioned plea that it might be always an active agency for the pro pagation of interracial good will. “In God's name,” he plead, “let us have less of hate and more of love, un derstanding and fellowship. Surely there is enough in Christianity to en able us all to put aside bitterness and rancor and stand together in mutual good will and helpfulness.” The new building is three s,tories high, of brick and stone, and very impressive and beautiful in Its archi tecture. The work was done by an organization financed and managed whotflty by Negroes, “The Service ^Consitructdob Compand", wmen se cured the contract on competitive bid and carried it out to the letter. Dr. P. M. Watters, President of the Seminary, paid the construction company a high tribute for their faithful and efficient work and sta ted that tjhe Ibujilding would ever redown to the honor of the colored people. Funds for the erection of the new building were} supplied in equal parts by the Methodist Centenary and from endowment income. Bishop and Mrs. ThirkieM, for whom it is named were sent to Atlanta to open the 3chool in 1883, at which time thqre vas but one member of the faculty and two students. Since then the school has sent out 1500 alumni and now enrolls annually more than p. hundred men and women preparing for the ministry and other forms of Christian work. Among its distin guished alumni are Bishops Jones, Camphor and Beckett. After the dedication^ $ie beautiful dining hall recent'Jy erected wa^- for mally named Bowen. Hall in honor of Dr. J. W. E.
