Lvxeur, X. H., Oct. 7. Booker T.
waaliinton, Jr.. cannot return to Phil.
lips Kxttur Academy under present
Neither tau his friends, J. E. Gomez,
son oi a Ciibau general, who left the
acaueiny ui comnanv with him.
Tiie lads gave out the report that
uie ieu uie institution because of
race prejudice shown there, but Dr.
Hailau i Amen, president of the
acaueiny, denies this statement.
J k; says that the boys would not snh
mit to ui.scipline, preferring to leave
latuer man comply with regulations
wnicn are supposed to govern all stu
dents irrespective of race or color.
To-nigLt a message was received
irom Aiontgomery, Ala. It stated that
Booker T. Washington, the famous
colored leader, father of the lad, had
said that his son was in New York on
a business trip with his consent, and
that he would return to his books in
a lew days.
But Dr. Amen says differently, and
he is the one whose decision bears
weight.- After being informed by a
Post reporter of the dispatch from
Montgomery, Dr. Amen made the fol
lowing statement:
"Under present conditions I cannot
see how young Washington could pos
sibly be allowed to return to the acad
emy. Ho left it of his own free will
and in violation of all rules. He
showed by his conduct here that he
was not amenable to discipline.
"If he had submitted to the disci
pline to which all students are subject
everything would have gone along
smoothly, but he preferred to leave the
"Today I received a dispatch trom
his lather asking if we would consent
to meet Miss Washington, his daugh
ter, some daythis week in Boston and
have a conference on the matter.
"We replied that we should be very
glad to do so any time that might be
convenient to her. I expect to hear
further from her in a day or so. She
is in New York at present, I believe.
"Young Washington gave the affair
here great publicity, and has created
a large amount of talk. If his father
should come to see me, as he may, or
if it is left to his sister, I can tell them
many things which have not been
made public yet, and which I do not
care to discuss at the present time. -
"But I will repeat that at present I
cannot see how the young man can
possibly be taken back. Certainly we
should require absolute assurance that
he would submit to our rules hereafter."

Exeter, N. II., Oct. 8. The hopeful
son of Booker T. Washington is con
sidered at Exeter as the very "fresh
est" youngster who ever entered that
lie responded promptly to the call
for football candidates, and in a loud
voice demanded that coach Hogan, the
1 Yale tackle, keep close watch of
his action. "You just watch mts
Hogan!" said the young hopeful. "A
lot of these fellows will tell you I
can't play football. Well, I can, Ho
ban! You just keep your eye on me!"
Hogan never batted an eyelash al
though he almost suffered internal rup
ture. "I'll do that," was all he said.
It is customary when the team goes
on the it Id to let the captain lead the
way, and when the Exeter squad came
out of the training house most of the
boys halted at the goal line.
But young Washington had already
reached the 30-yd line, yelling, "Throw
me the ball! throw me the bell!" at
the top of his lungs.
The question of color has nothing to
do with the state of amazement which
the son of the leading educationalist
has suc ceded in producing.
On Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock,
Mrs. Lillian Crump, wife of Mr,
Crump, of this city, passed away. Mrs,
Crump had been married a little over

ceased dressed as a sleeping bride on
lovely ashes of rose couch. The cor
tege was large and magnificent, show
ing the popularity of the deceased.
Nashville has had numerous stae
parties, but seldom has there been a
more highly pleased assemblage of
men at one of these social' functions
of this character than those that en

The Inauguration of the monthly
service at the Meharry Auditorium,
in which the students from all depart
ments of Walden University are to
unite in one general service took place
at 11:00 o'clock in the large Auditori
um on First Avenue, South. Last year
the services were first becun. and it
seems that they were so helpful, so
popular, and so generally enjoyed by
the student body as well as the citi
zens that Dr. Kumler, President of the
University, and Dr. Hubbard; Dean of
Meharry Medical College, decided to
continue them in the future. The sec
ond Sunday in each month has been
set apart for the services, while the
hour has been fixed at 11:00 o'clock.
It is the intention to have the lead
ing ministers of both races and all de
nominations to address and preach to
the students at this hour.
The first to receive an invitation and
to respond to the same for this occa
sion was Rev. R. H. Boyd, D. D., LL.
J)., Secretary of the National Baptist
Publishing Board. He preached at
11:00 o clock last Sunday. He is ex
tremely popular with the student body
ana as a result all of the entire enroll
ment was present. There was not an
available seat in the spacious Auditor!
urn at ten minutes past eleven, when
uean Hubbard announced that the
services would begin. The Walden
choir, under the management of Miss
Mamie Braden, rendered music for the
occasion. Dr. Bovd sooke for fortv
five minutes, taking for his text, "What
mean ye by these stones?" (Joshua
4:6.) His subject was "Old Time Re
ligion." He took the practical view
of the religion of to-day; paid and
held tribute to the faith and obedience
of Joshua, and compared the children
of Israel with the Negro of to-dav. de
claring. that the unborn generation
among the Negroes would certainly
ask, "What mean ye by these stones.
The music had been carefully prepared
Mr. Miller's base solo was perfect. A

At Columbia, Tenn., October, JS97,
the society was reorganized. Mrs. J.
A. Davis was chosen President; Mrs.
S. R. Reid, Secretary; Mrs. G. L. Jack
son, Treasurer. Under this adminis
tration some local Woman's Mite Mis
sionary . societies were organized and
we began having conventions.
At. the convention at Franklin.
Tenn., 1905, , Mrs. Evans Tyree was
elected President; Mrs. Thomily, Sec
retary;. Mrs.i Hightower, Treasurer,
Mrs. Tyree put her prayers, her time,
her energies and her mite into this
work and great was the result. A
large number of Woman's Mite Mis
sionary societies were organized in the
churches. Many special sermons and
services were held. Many persons
were helped and encouraged. A lame
number of the struggling missionaries
and preachers received aid from our
treasury. Several souls were brought
to Christ by the work, prayers and in
fluence of the women. This work was
carried into the homes of our people
and many a happy meeting was had
in the sick room and with the aged.
Mrs. Tyree. is an untiring worker and
we feel that now as Honorary Presi
dent she will be just as faithful, un
tiring, and helpful. Under Mrs. Tvree
the. Woman's Mite Missionary Society
reached Its highest mark, ?137.87. At
the convention at St. John, 190G, Mrs.
M. A.Halgler was chosen President.
The convention at Lewisburg, 1907,
selected Mrs. G. L. Jackson.
. Since we come back to Tavne Chanel
October 31, the first time in twentv-
six years, and since this is the twenty-
sixth anniversary of the Woman's Mite
Missionary .Society, we all feel that
we ought to make some little demon
stration. Hence this anniversary card
which we hope will meet a hearty re
sponse and full co-operation.

The Twenty-sixth Anniversary of the
.Woman's Mite Missionary Society in
Dear Friend: In behalf of the la
boring and sacrificing ministers in the
various mission fields we earnestly ap
peal to you to bring to the annual con
ference all the mite missionary money
you can possibly raise. We desire to
have two hundred dollars to distribute
for the relief of needy preachers.
Mrs. G. L. Jackson, President.
Mrs. M. S. Peyton, Secretary.
Under Bishop Lee's administration
some of the missionaries have received
as much as fifteen dollars from this
society. This is a long step from a
dollar or half-dollar when- we first
started. We hope to be able to do
more at this conference than ever be
fore as this is the twenty-sixth anni
versary and the close of Bishop Lee's
administration, and the day has come
for us to do more for our mission
aries. Bishop Salter's administration
closed with $53.00, W. M. M. money
Bishop Tanner's with $10,r.87. Lot us
come to the $200 mark this time, the
close of Bishop Lee's.
St. Paul Woman's Mite Missionary
Society is coming with the best W.
M. M. report ever brought from that
charge. The ladies of St. Paul ore very
much in earnest about the matter.
