Get busy and let each home prepare to put out flags — American — while our business places will properly display bunting and the like. TO ESTELLE. I Like errant waves my thoughts do go And wander miles away from me, To reach a land upon whose shore They may at last come home to Thee. II To you they turn when, tired of strife, They crave and seek the boon of rest From al lthe many trials of life — From harsh decrees and fate’s hard tests. III But still no craven thoughts are these, Nor do they play a coward’s part; Refreshed and soothed by you they seize Their swords and with stout hearts depart. IV God grant that when the fight is o’er And reputation’s bauble won, They turn again to your fair shore To rest till time itself is done. —Robertson. GOD GIVE US MEN. God give us men! A time like this demands Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands; Men whom the lust of office does not kill; Men whom the spoils of office can not buy; Men who possess opinions and a will; Men who have honor —men who will not lie; Men who can stand before a dema gogue And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking! Tall men, sun crowned, who live above. duty and In private think ing. God give us men. —J. G. Holland.

LEADER IN MANY GOOD MOVEMENTS Success of Rev. Dr. W. H. Jernagfn at Washington. MAN OF WIDE EXPERIENCE How the Mount Carmel Baptist Church le Prospering Under the Able Lead ership of Its Energetic Pastor—All Departments Close the Fiscal Year With a Cash Balance. By N. BARNETT DODSON. It was Paul Laurence Dunbar who said, “To have achieved something for the betterment of his race rather than the aggrandizement of himself seems to be a man’s best claim to be culled representative and a leader.” Few men have merited such distinction, and fewer still have lived to receive their Just reward, for true genius is seldom rewarded in its day. Doubt, suspicion, prison and often death have been the fate of most men who have labored and done most for the betterment of mankind. But as the wind of time dispels the clouds of slavish tradition and custom their true worth shines forth as a beacon light and all men sing paeans of their greatness. The above applies to the efforts and achievements of the Rev. William H. Jernagin, I>. D., pastor of the Mount Cannel Baptist church at Washington, in the most concrete manner. Before accepting the call of the above named church a few years ago Dr. Jernagin | had won his spurs as a successful pas tor and leader among our i>eople in the far south and southwest. Dr. Jernagin is the moderator of the General Baptist Association of the Dis- BEV. W. 11. JEBNAGIN, D. It. trlct of Columbia and vicinity, treas urer of the national B. Y. P. U. board, one of the vice presidents of the na tional Baptist convention and chap lain of the National Supreme Order of Helpers. He returned from Atlanta. Ga., on Tuesday, June 12, where he hud been attending the Sunday school congress and tlie B. Y. P. U. conven tion, in which he took a leading part. As moderator of the General Baptist association he has succeeded in secur ing the hearty co-operation of the members in every important move ment which has for its object the ad vancement of denominational Interests In Washington. Because of his able advocacy of equal rights under the law for the col ored people ns citizens of the United States I)r. Jernagin was elected presi dent of the national race < ongress which was held in Washington In Oc tober, 1910. He was leader of a recent delegation which conferred with the secretaries of the war and navy de partments with reference to granting young colored men an opportunity to be trained for official rank in (be new federal army. Under Dr. Jernagin’s admin 18(1*81101] the Mount Carmel Baptist church has takeu Its place among the foremost churches in Washington. He has se cured a new place of worship for his congregation, greatly increased the membership and has put the church in splendid financial condition. The animal report of the board of trustees shows receipts amounting to .492.32 with a balance to the credit of tin church and its auxiliaries of The Increase in the membership ’dur ing the year was 102. Since the re port was made thirty-four candidate: for baptism have been enrolled. Tb Sunday school.

By the will of the late John A. Green of New York city Wilberforce univer sity at \\ ilberforee, 0., Is beneficiary to the amount of $1,500. The estate consists in tho main of real estute which may be sold to good advantage, us property values are constantly ad vancing. James A. Anderson, executor of the. Green estate, has notified President W. S. Scarborough of Wilberforce uni versity that as soon as settlement of the estate is made the amount above named will be forwarded to the uni versity. This recognition of the benefi cent work which Wilberforce is doing for higher education is a most worthy tribute to the institution and to Dr. Scarborough, whose administration of the affairs of the school has been effi cient and thorough in all lines of lit erary and business management. The present school year has been noted for earnestness on the part of both students and faculty to get the very best results from Hass work, lec tures and recreation. The commence ment exercises begin on Sunday, June 17. Bishop Levi J. Coppin of Philadel phia, Professor Richard T. Greener of Chicago and Bishop Evans Tyree of Nashville, Tenn.. are among those who will deliver addresses during the com mencement season. The dedication of the Tawawa hospital for the use of students will occur on Tliursdav, June 21.

The Increase In the enrollment of students from year to year calls for more room. President Scarborough has made many friend* for the school, and the results of bis efforts in its behalf grow larger as he makes known the success and needs of the institution to the general public.
