The annual report of the city health
officer just issued discloses some
startling facts concerning tho death
rate in Nashville among Negroes. I
Shows that while the Negro is not one
third in the population, he is in the
lead in the death rate. Tho preval
ing cause and one of the leading both
in colored and white is consumption
The health department declares that
tuberculosis is contracted mostly by
dissipation on the part of the youn
man and in the unsanitary houses in
which live a majority of the Negroes
as well as exposure fvoan lack of suf
ficient clothing. The truth of the mat
ter seems to be that most of the deaths
now occurring are charged to tubercu
losis. An important yet interesting
comparison brought out in the report
is that concerning the number of bur
ials in the various cemeteries. It
shows that Greenwood Cemetery Is
one of the most important burial
grounds in the city, white or black. Mt.
Olivet leads it only by one. The list,
as appears in the report for the year
190G, Is as follows:
Mt. Olivet - 442
Mt. Calvary 96
Jewish Cemetery 15
Spring Hill 87
Mill Creek 7
ML Ararat 312
Potter's Field 27
City 21
Greenwood 441
National 3
Shipped out of the city 370
Which brings the total death rate to
,8.24, and out of this amount 753 have
been burled In the Negro cemeteries.
th.!,. A 1 1
i iivi e is uu record or. now manv
shipped out of Nashville were colored,
and how many that died in the sub
urbs were sent to their relatives over-
and to the country. Hence it can be
eadily seen that out of the city of
Nashville with its claimed 125,000 pop
ulation, and only 45,000 Negroes, more
than one-third of the death rate is on
the colored side of the ledger. The
tuberculosis convention would do well
to revive its interest and look after
the brothers in black.
Fortunes Destroyed Daily by Burning
Few people realize when, they cram
a newspaper into the stove that they
are burning money, but such is the
case. One of the leading job printing
concerns in this city recently told a
scrap paper dealer that be would give
his trimmings to any one who would
haul them away. That gentleman
was informed by the scrap paper deal
er that some of his scraps were worth
$1.8(J per 100 pounds.
The general prosperity of the coun
try has caused a great demand for pa
per of every description, and the man
ufacturers of wood pulp find them
selves unable to fill orders as speed-
iy as they are demanded, and, too,
the price of this raw material has ad
vanced to such a height that the pa
per makers have been forced to turn
their eyes to the people's waste paper
baskets. For the last few weeks no
ess than a dozen drummers have vis
ited Nashville from all parts of the
country on the one mission of ascer
mining me amount or waste paper
that can be secured from the many
printing concerns here and from every
other source.
In the near future wagons will be
scouring every section of this city,
collecting waste paper. They will de
liver the same to a ware house soon to
be established here.
Any iitue boy or girl can save
enough waste paper to buy their
school books. By taking the old news
papers, magazines, wrappings, bags,
nd board boxes, fold them up and tie
in bundles. A goodly sum will soon
be accumulated
The housewife can
earn enough to pay her life insurance
and save herself an annoyance that
has been a source of much vexation
for all these years.
This institution is still dispensing
charity to the indigent sick and care
fully nursing all who come within
its sacred walls. A number of opera
tions have been done lately by Drs.
Stewart Bandy, Townsend, McMilJ-
lan, Wells, McGannon, Robb and
Boyd. Every case has done well. The
hospital is as neat as soap and wa-
ter and paint and paper can make it.
Every member of our race should be
proud of Mercy Hospital. It has a
record of recoveries from surgical op-
erations and all kinds of diseases,
equal to any institution of its kind in
the country, and the work is done
Dy our ,own pnysicians, and every
case is handled by nurses of our own
race. Eivery year a class of trained
nurses Is graduated and sent out to
bless the world. Sixteen young worn-
en are now in training for nrofessional
work. Every hospital must have the
hedp of the public. The good people
of Nashville are asked to give support
and encouragement to Mercy Hospit
al. The Ladies' Board had Linen Day

This concert was brilliant in the
way of comical rendition. It carried
its crowd at every point and kent a
continuous roaring of laughter. The
lawyer and his office boys were one of
the features of the concert. Mr. Sam
White was the lion of the occasion,
swaying his audience at will. The
truth is, everybody who was present
wants the concert repeated. St. Paul
realized from its effort fifteen or
twenty dollars. The youner neonle
who engaged in it were only about
two weeks in getting it up. Mr. Jas.
Paschull. ot the S. S. Union, was man
ager, and by the way, he and Mr.
