NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1910.
1 1 na n THE RIG( FA G9L1L1EL10RATE IT ANY Congregation can have its wants1 supplied by securing one of our Quar- druple-Plated Table Silver ware Com munion Sets at a moderate price and on reasonable terms. A set consists of one flagon, two goblets and two bread plates. If the church wants more goblets or plates, they can be. furnished at an additional cost. The commemoration of the Lord's Supper is a very sacred ordinance. The custom for centuries has been to have special vessels for this occasion. Thus a communion set becomes an important part of this service. Many churches have used the old style com munion set while others use an individual set. Both are appropriate and well-recommended. One is no reflection upon the other. FOR. FURTHER. INFORMATION CONCERNING PRICES AND TERMS. WRITE TO THE NATIONAL BAPTIST CHURCH SUPPLY Co., R. H. BOYD, Secretary, 523 Second Avenue. North.

A SMOKER. it is being demonstrated from all points of view that the subordinate lodges of Nashville Knights of Ty thias are growing with exceeding rapidity. It seems that each memlber from the oldest to the youngest here located is striving within themselves to make a showing morally, financial ly and numerically to the entire world that will establish history ever lasting. A few weeks ago one of the youngest lodges, Stonewall No. 105, gave a free lunch to their invited guests, which h?s caused many to join their ranks, and only Monday night, December 12, another young lodge, Friendship 72, gave a smoker of a similar nature, which was un told success from all points of view. Too much can not be said of Friend ship No. 72, for if there was ever a lodge in the jurisdiction that is mak ing progress 'tis this number. Many made interesting talks, after the C. G., R. C. Martin, had made hi3 prelimi nary talk. All left at a late hour after the principal speakers had furnished their discourses, who were Knights J. Blaine, P. F. Hill, J. 11. Kelly, Jr., Dr. Napier, Ernest Mo fiuire. The following are the present officers of Friendship Lodge No) 72: R. C. Martin, C. C; O. S. Deen, V. C; Leon Polk. Prelate; Dr. R. A.

"The new Register-elect of the Treasury of the United States, Mr. J. C. Napier, spent, the week at the na tion's capital," says a Washington special. He wps therp in the inter est of the educational work, being a memiber of the Anna T. Jeane Board and to witness the corner-stone laying of the new building of Howard Uni versity. He is expected home today or Saturday. A Globe reporter saw Mrs. Napier on Wednesday, but she could not give out anything definite about when they expect to leave, in fact, she said, "I wish you wouldn't say anything of our going, for there is something which ties us here even though we apnreeiate the honor al ready shown by the naming of Mr. Napier for the position. I do not know of his plans other than he is vaiting for definite news." DEATHS. Infant of John and Fannie Williams, 1313 Eleventh avenue. South. Joseph H. Patterson, ICS Fillmore street, 1 year.
