Olive Baptist Church to its utmost capacity to do honor to a departed friend. There were fully as many outside as could be accommodated on the in side. A grander and more magnifi cent gathering was never witnessed in this city. It was one that gave a marKea evidence of tne high esteem neia by a community for their la ineniea iellowtownsman. Dpnrrm John Tate. This was indeed a most sciemn occasion, an occasion nf dppn j . . . r uuu especial solemnity to the entire membership of Mt. Olive Baptist uurcn. ims unprecedented nut. pouring of the people was from the ract that the sad news had been i i j . . i . . ueraiuea aoroau that Deacon Tate was dead and that his funeral would take place in the house of wnrshin ho founded, loved; and cherished as a nauowed spot. He departed this life friaay, March 25th. 1910. nf his rPS, iucuc, xuuo ruan street, lie was born on the 24th day of August, 1839 his age being 71 years at. his ripath His first marriage was to Miss Lucy Brown in 1863, and to them were born thirteen children. His second marriage was to Miss Nancy Kirkpat ncK in his wife and a dausrh ter, Mrs. Annie May Tate Pierce, a gianuuaugnter, Lucy May Pierce survive him. Deacon Tate was porter at the Max well House for forty years, and up to the time of his death, was the oldest as wen as the head deacon of Mt. unve iiaptist Church. In the rearing of this great church edifice he build ed better than he knew, a monu ment to his memory, with a record that will stand until eternity rolls ana this earth shall (be no morp The services were opened by the church choir singing "Servant of uod, etc., lined by Rev. Oneal, with Mr. ranK Teasley at the organ Prayer was offered bv Rev. W. S Ellington, pastor of the First Baptist Church, Spruce street. The choir then sang, "Abide "with me." Scrip ture ireaamg irom the sixth chapter of the Acts, by Rev. J. F. Thomas, of nicago, in. The obituary was read by Rev. T. J. Townsend, pastor of bpruce Street Baptist Church. rr C. II. Clark, the pastor of Mt. Olive, preached the funeral sermon. Dr. Clark took for a text, Second Samuel 3:38. "And the king said unto his servants Know ye not that there is a prince and a great man fallen this day in Israel." His theme was "A great, good and powerful man has gone to sleep." In his preliminary remarks the doc tor touched upon the history of the great confusion that made possible the founding of Mt. Olive Baptist Church. He briefly told of the active service of an army of valiant, men who have labored for the success nf Mt. Ulive Church of whom Deacon John Tate was the central figure, the pivot upon winch every thing turned; in fact the general of the whole oper ation; for it was ho who marshalled the forces to victory in everv contest- In taking up the text Dr. Clark dis cussed it in a plain and most simple way and made it verv anplic.ihlp rn the life of Deacon John Tate, in that he proved that he was "a great, good and powerful man." He referred to tne tact that the vast congregation assembled to pay him the last tribute of respect was an evidence of his greatness, and the power he held among the people, and a greater evi- ucnv naa me yiusence or so many preachers in attendance upon the fu neral of a layman. He went on to show many other ways that Deacon John Tate was an extraordinary man among his people, many of whom he had befriended by providing them with clothes, shoes, fuel and food to the extent that he kept them from suffering. Dr. Clark truthfully said, that Deacon John Tate deserved more credit for his acts of kindness than a man ot great wealth. As an uned ucated man, he said, it made him the greater and more of a benefactor in its truest sense than one who was bet ter able to give to those who were in need and lived on the charitips nf the cold world. The speaker well de scried him as a self-saerifirimr man and one that never got tired going nuvui aoing good. At the close of the sermon J. Thom as Turner read an original poem in memoriam to Deacon Tate. A few brief remarks were made by Rev A W. Porter, Rev. Oneal and Rev. Pres ton Taylor all of whom spoke of Dea con Tate as a churchman in all that it implies. The Mt. Olive Church choir ren dered some excellent music for the occasion. Taylor & Co. had charge of the funtral The floral designs were beaut?! and artistic in their make MURFREESBORO NOTES. Rev. W. T. Green is making splendid progress in the city as an active, wide awake, gospel minister. His efforts are not confined to tho church alone. He appears to be making an indelible impression upon tho entire city. It will be remembered that Murfreesboro was once the capital of the Volunteer State; and Is the county seat of Ruth erford County. It has a very intelli gent population of both races and is rated as one of the first cities in the state, so far as concerns the type of citizens it produces. The Negroes are about two-fifths of the population of the city. That they are making good citizens is evident from the fact that they are filling almost every vocation of life, being active in the business world as well as in the professional. There will be found in the city the following grocers and produce mer chants of our race: F. G. Carney, J. C Blake, R. F. Woodson, J. M. Win row, Wm. Robertson, Wm. Lytle, Ed Turner, E. M. Woodson and Mrs. Sea horn. In the resturant business there will be found Messrs. Joe Alex ander and Henry Vaughn. As a con fectioner, .none is better known than Mrs. Cox, while Mrs. Tennie Williams is holding down the millinery trade. As a general merchant, Mr. A. J. An derson is not to be left out of the list. In the spiritual world there are Bap tists, Methodists and other de nominations represented, with good churches to their credit. In the pro fessions it can boast of four practic ing physicians: Drs. White, Hickman, Harding and McClellan, with one law yer. All in all, Murfreesboro, with its improved ideas, promises to be the real city of Middle Tennessee. The Easter services at Key Chapel M. E. Church were quite a success. An excellent program was rendered at night by the Sunday-school. The choir furnished excellent music with Miss E. C. Darden, pianist, and Mr. J. M. Windrow, chorister. Sunday school class No. 4, which has held the banner so successfully for four successive years, led in the collection raising, $64.29. Miss Elma A. Wil liams is teacher. The total collection was $123 and some cents. Mr. and Mrs. Neil and Mrs. Rucker, of Nashville, were Mrs. Rose Overall's Easter .guest Mr. Wm. Long, of Chattanooga, spent Easter in the city with his wife, Mrs. Mattie S. Long, who has spent the winter here. Dr. and Mrs. J. P. Hickman and brother, Mr. Louis Hickman, were called to the bedside of their mother Saturday evening in Breese, 111. Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Eason and sort. Robt. Brady, were in the city last weeic visiting their father and mother. Mr. Eddie Simpson left this city for Sewanee to spend the summer. Mrs. Maria Smith, who has been quite ill, is improving rapidly. The following is he list of those who passed the civil service examination here in March and were given appoint ments for taking census: Mr. A. L. Nelson, seventh district: Mr. Robert Green, eleventh district; Miss Lillie M. Haley, thirteenth district, and Mr. Ei-skin Lytle, ninth district. Espe cially ought Mr. Lytle be commended. We have few young men of his age that are aspiring for higher things, and we hope that his work may be done so well that it may be credit for himself and community. PARIS NOTES.
