Mrs. Lula Boyd-Landers, Editor of the Concert Quarterly, Prepares a Special Cantata for Christmas in Which Negro Dolls Take Leading Hole. It has been said from time to time that the different departments of the National Baptist Publishing Board re not only competent in their work, but they are equal to the occasion at all times. Whether this be true or not, indications point that way. They seem to have met every con dition and found a ready solution to the most perplexing problems in the religious or denominational world. As a proof of this, the editor of the Concert Quarterly, a program printed four times a year, namely, Easter, Children's Day, Bible Day and Christmas, has brought this pe riodical up to a very high stand ard, and it has been the cus tom of the editor to give the Sun- dav-schools each quarter something new, something interasting and some thing that will prove attractive to the pupils. She has been very careful to feel the pulse of the masses and in this way determine on what is best. Ier latest and no doubt her most hap- py hit is a cantata coming out as a Christmas program known as the Negro Doll's Christmas." She seems to have gathered her inspiration to write this cantata from the agitation and the deep interest in Negro dolls. This program not only contains the dialogue, in which the Negro dolls take the leading role, but it has spicy, new songs, composed, set to music and arranged, by Negro authors. The recitations, declamations with the other additions make this oue of the greatest programs ever prepared. Dr. Boyd says that the 18 or 20 thousand Negro BapJst Sunday-schools throughout the country will not miss he opportunity to send in their or ders early. Every Sunday-school can have some of the programs. The prices are 35 cents a dozen, $3.00 a hundred. All orders should be sent to 'the National Baptist Publishing Board, No 523 Second avenue, North, Nashvillo, Tenn. Those desiring them should not wait until a week before Christmas to order. They should send in their orders at once. - - MEHARRY NOTES. Bishop I. B.
