THE NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 1909.
Church. During his stay at Straight University between forty and fifty took the divinity course, many finish ing with high honors. It "-was from Straight University that Dr. Hender son came to take charge of the Theo logical Department at Fisk, to bring 6uch glorious results as were evi denced at the exercises last Sunday. It appears that his personality and high scholarship have attracted men from the medical profession, the city schools and other walks of life into the gospel ministry. Every one in the vast audience was pleased with the exercises and heartily congratulated the graduates, Dean Wright, of the University, and Dean Henderson, of the Theological Department. FOR. LODGES.

(Continued from Page 1.) the degradation of the black man, the black veteran has thus grown In in difference so that he does not come to honor the memory of his comrades who have answered the last roll call and he fails to impress this duty of rev erence upon his children, the rising generation. This occasion ought to be impressed upon our young as a hal lowed day. The old comrades are fast passing to the soldiers' home above, and what will become of this and emancipation day if we do not im press their sacredness upon the pres ent and future generations of our. young people? We should teach our children at our knee the lesson of the sacrifice these sleeping dead made that they might enjoy this glorious day of liberty and enlightment. There are many of our people who would have you forget the past with all its horrors and oppression and de basement, but like the Jews we should rever it, for only those who have suffered and wept can appreci ate the blessings of peace and com fort. I have recently published a book "Out of the Darkness" for the pur pose of instructing our young people in some of the things the race has had done to them; what they have en dured and muft endure ere they shall be free indeed and be men, and citi zens. From it they will learn of the travail, pain and long-suffering through which they were born to freedom. Many things told therein are known to the older people, both colored and white, but the young of either race know nothing of the price paid for what liberty we enjoy. We must teach, write and speak of these things that they may be in stilled, into the hearts and minds of the generations coming after. I know there are those who would have you believe that all is sunshine and that our path is lined with flow ers, that there are no dark and low ering clouds and that there are no thorns amid the flowers, that every day is Sunday and that the obstacles we meet are only 'myths of the imagi nation. But in spite of these dreams we must know the dark as well as the bright side of our life. "We know in what a forge and what a heat was shaped the anchor of our hope." We should not be deceived by false lights in our dark night, to believe that all is well and that we have reached a quiet haven, a sure retreat; for there are hidden rocks and quick sands along the shore. May no torn, toms, drum beat or bugle blast be able to drown the still voice of warning that conies to us from out the storm, for all is not well. Lord be with us yet lest we for get, lest we forget. A GRAND SUCCESS. The first social of the Undenom- national Bible Readers' Association was quite" a success, which came off recently at the residence of Rev. S. Frister, 1903 Heffernan street. The President, Rev. S. Frister, opened the exercises by an introduction . of the society and Scripture reading. Rev. M. B. Ridley offered prayer. We had present with us Rev. M. B. Rid ley, Mrs. Cotton, Miss Alberta De- Moss, Mr. Ed Whitaker, Miss Eva DeMoss, Mrs. Delia Gteen, Mrs. Anna Dismuke, Mrs. Mary Broom, Mrs. Rev. E. C. Jones, Mrs. itev. M. B. Rid ley, Miss Pearly M. Jones, Mrs. Rev. S. Frister, Misses Josephine and Eliza beth Frister, Theodore and Benjamin Frister. The President took pains to show the purpose of the institution. That it is not property of any de nomination, but offers its service to all. That it is not a church and would not assume authority over any one. We are associated to read the Bible and to help others to read it in that connected way by which alone its harmony, beauty and worth may be learned and enjoyed. Rev. E. C. Jones, who holds the office of "prin cipal reader," introduced his chart work. AH vacant time was filled by select music by Mr. Edi Whitaker and Miss Alberta DeMoss. Refresb- and Mrs. Broome.
