Three small boys in Nashville were
recently playing street car; the ve
hicle was a soap box with rope
through holes in the front end to
form the traces for the harnessed ani
mal, who chanced to be, as usual, the
smallest one of the three.
This reasonably correct imitation of
a mule was kicking because the two
passengers in the car, formed such a
load for him' to haul. One of them
remonstrated, logically, "Of course It
is hard to pull because you won't
stay on the track." A close in
spection revealed the fact that the
track was a pair of parallel lines
drawn on the ground.
A more distinct track than this is

Lincoln Post, the Baptist Ministers'
Conference, with the Business
and Professional Men,
The article which appeared in the
Nashville Globe last week concerning
the emancipation celebration, express
ing the hope that a united celebra
tion of the people of Nashville be held
it some place sufficiently large to hold
the people, has been received with no
little consideration. Lincoln Post, No.
G. Grand Army Remiblic. one of the
oMost. .and most respected organiza
tions In the city, acquiesces in the
movement, and will join the Baptist
Ministers'' Conference and the Busi
ness and Professional League. Repre
sentatives from these three organiza
tion have already been in conference
rm the matter. Rev. Preston Taylor
represented Lincoln Post, G. A. R.;
Rev. C. H. Clark represented the Bap
tist Ministers' Conference, while
Tenry A. Boyd represented the Busi
ness and Professional League. The
. M. E. Preachers' Alliance, an organ
ization which meets on Tuesday of
each week, will be urged to co-oper-ntev,
and if the secret organizations,
such pis Knights of Pythias, Odd Fel
lows, Masons, benevolent orders, etc..
could be induced to take an active
part, Nashville would have the largest
celebration in its history one in
which all the people could unite and
celebrate their natal day.
It is expected that some time in the
early part of next week all arrange
ments will be perfected and that in
the columns of the Globe in Its next
issue, the program outlined .for the
celebration, will appear. At any
rate, the indications are that the cel
ebration for 1908 will be a tremendous
fucccfs. The people are practically
united and of one opinion when it
omes to having a general celebration.
This, coupled with the encourage
nvent already given by the various or
ganizations, (means much to the move

The front page of "The Casket,"

ticles incident to the embalming pro
fession, Ls taken up with a cut of the
magnificent ebony funeral car of Hon.

A. N. Johnson, the progressive funeral
director. This car was manufactured
especially for Mr. Johnson by the
Cunningham Company, who for fifty
years have been the largest hearse
and carriage builders In the world, and
this is the first time in history when
any colored man has had the honor
and distinction of having a job adver
tised by any of the manufacturers of
hearses and carrlagies; and when the
leading house puts forth this master
piece, spending .several hundred dol
lars for the place on the best portion
of a trade journal, it shows that Mr.
Johnson deserves the support of the
people who want the highest class of
service, especially the particular peo
ple who desire excellency with com
petency. There is not the equal of
this funeral car" in this Southern coun
try, nor is it surpassed by any in the
entire United States.
