This is an age of preparation and i not or noise or show. The much her alded attempt to lynch the Negro sol dier proved to be more scare than reality, because upon demand for the release of the soldier by Capt. Lee, the suspected soldier was released. Some three or four soldiers had been sus pected and released because of insuf ficiency of the evidence. Had this oc currence been in the South already some Negro soldier would have been lynched, but as it is, no one is not even now arrested. We wonder where was our local N. A. A. C. P. when the cry of distress went out? Mr. and Mrs. Browning Allen are on . the sick list, necessitating the services I of a physician. I THE NEGRO COMMERCIAL ASSOCIATION. A mass meeting will be held in the Zion Baptist Church, 24th and Ogden, on Friday evening, Jan. 18th, at 8:00 o’clock, in the interest of the above association. Prominent business men of the city of Denver will address the meeting. All interested in the wel fare of the race are urged to attend. If some of our ministers could have read the strong editorial i n the Wichita paper about them patroniz ing their own places and professional men it might do some good for the beginning of the year. Denver has two dentists, two lawyers, two tailors, several cleaning establishments, one grocery store, one shoe repair shop, many barber shops, two drug stores, many restaurants and cafes, two ho tels, two printing offices, two news papers, several churchfes and religious bodies and we can see no reason why other businesses of the Anglo-Saxon are patronized when we have the same among ourselves? Watch these race men and prove their words by their deeds. Miss Cassie Fleming, who has just returned from a visit to Santa Fe and Las Vegas, N. M., where she spent a few days with Mrs. A. Reeves, niece of rhe millionaire sheep man-, Montgomery Bell, deceased. Mrs. Reeves wa3 the guest of Miss Fleming while in our city. A PRAYER. Oh, Thou the Christ! Guide right our feet again; Show us the way to go in this grave hour; Grant freedom to the world, our lives a part; Give strength to fight. Let us Thy justice see. Pure as the Heaven undraped, our love for Thee, Once Thou didst brighter make, our life’s dark day; Again, Thy wisdom show, O wondrous Heart! Guide us in duty. Lead Thou the way. —Leona Troutman Barbee. WE NEED MONEY!. WE DO! Explanatory Appeal.

Why, now the big folks crowding in, That cuts the room for me; I expect to lay right with them, Steve, Because Dearfield's going to be. I’ll tell you, bud, it's nip and tuck, Be worse than Calvarie; Before you move me away from here Where Dearfield’s going to be. That little white painted house up there, Called Dearfield School, Is spreading out that way which shows That Dearfield’s going to be. There’s Houston's Store and Post Office, And dwelling house make two Have gone up and don’t you know Old Dearfield's going to be. You’d better go to the “Land Office,” And pay your filing fee, So you can get a home out there Where Dearfield’s going to be. You ought to ride out through the colony, ; And then you will agree, That this isn’t got up may be so, ■ But Dearfield’s going to be. . Now if you want to know some more, Ask God and Rev. McCully, .

The Boy Scout Council is very de sirous in organizing an auxiliary con sisting of tbe parents of boys connect ed with the organization. The movement is a good one and should receive the hearty co-operation of every parent as it will mean much to the council, the boy and the parent. The white scouts’ parents give their support and assist the movement in any way they possibly can.' Now it remains for the Colored Boy Scout parents to do likewise. You are welcome to any of our meet ings that are held every Saturday at Shorters’ A. M. E. Church at 8 o’clock sharp. The Boy Scouts now have 14 mem bers and 6 candidates. Watch us grow. We are looking forward to a great < time New Year’s day, when we go to call on the Mayor and the Governor, j after which we will be treated to a chuck-wagon feed on the Civic Center. He goes forth to conquer. This idea I* put in the strongest possible form— ‘Conquering and to conquer;” that is, victory succeeding victory. He tri umphs over all oppositions, but not at once. Many a fierce struggle is called for before the forces of evil are van quished. But the cause of righteous ness will win in the end. We follow a leader who has never been beaten. He came into this world to destroy the power of sin. It was a gigantic struggle, and at first he seemed to be baffled. Looked at from the human point of view his death was a failure; but it was in reality a victory. By it he vanquished sin and death. Through all his earthly life he was a victor. He conquered disease; he ruled the forces of nature; he cast out evil spirits; he delivered men from the power of evil. Never once did he go down to defeat. The work of con quest which he began upon earth he is now carrying on with greater power. The power by which Christ conquers Is the same as that by which he con quered when here In the flesh. He I conquers by the power of truth andj love. His weapon of conquest is the cross. j In the epistle to the Hebrews Jesus is represented ns making “one sacri fice of sin forever,” and then sitting down at God’s right hand, “from henceforth expecting until his enemies be made his footstool” (Chap. 10:12, 13). His expectation of coming vic tory was based upon his sacrifice for sin. He knew of no greater power than the cross. It was the highest revelation of divine suffering, redeem ing love, conceivable. No greater pow er unto salvation can be brought to i bear upon the hearts of men. It is God’s utmost. This is the weapon which we today are to yield in the battle for righteous ness. “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but spiritual." They may appear to be feeble, but they are “mighty through God to the pulling down of str<inpholds.” The cross is no failure. Following the crucified, we follow a conquering king.— Rev, James M. Campbell, D. D. Valuable as are the snips themselves that now lie at the bottom ot the sea, the cargoes of cotton, rubber, wool, machinery, etc., are considered to be more valuable still.” Parts of the North sea and of the English channel are shallow enough to permit of this kind of salvage work on a consider able scale, according to the authority quoted.—Outlook Magazine. Woman’s After-War Work. Mary Boazman writes as follows In the Woman c<? Home, London: “At the end of the war many women will be engaged In vocations once sa cred to men. Borne of these are prob ably nnsnlted to them, but In others they will continue to the advantage of themselves and society. The time Is surely ripe for a proper division of the various employments between the two sexes to end the fierce competi tion prevailing before the Increase to the army. For Instance, waiting at table and the teaching of young chil dren are tasks more ndnpted to wom en than to men, and might well be come their monopoly. It is clearly wiser to prepare for the numbers of women who will have to be provided for In the future In a systematic fash ion, than to leave the matter to settle Itself in the haphazard way which breeds confusion and strife.” 'i t y Reduction of the High!
