NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1910. "" ' " rum yg J i I K T E RIGUT VESSELS USE GOrilEUORATE IT A NY Congregation can have its wants .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 tnore 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. FURTHLR.

PUTTING A BAN ON NEGRO DECK HANDS. v ST. LOUIS, Dec. 17. If plans now under way develop it apppears but a question of time before the place the Negro roustabout lias held for years on the steamers of the Mississippi will be usurped by white men, who heretofore haye declined to have any thing to do with steamboating on the Father of Waters as stevedores. The packet companies operating steamboats on the Mississippi and its the Fireside School, is a teacher of the Academy. Here she met a very interesting class of young people and tea'hers who received her gladly.

The home of Mr and Mrs. J. J. BeneUeld was completely destroyed by fire here at 12:39 this morning. The fire, which was of an unknown origin, was raging and half the house was burn ing before tho occupants, were awak ened by the excited neighbors who came to their rescue. Everything in the house save tho trunk of 'Mrs. Ben efield, which contained only last summer's clothes and a uniform of Mr. Benefieild'S was consumed. The force of letter carriers of this city, of whom Mr. Benefield is one, have been very active in coming to his rescue at this time. The news of the loss of . the Benefield home was confirmed by a iong distance phone message Last -Thursday night, by Rev. R. H. BoyiV . s-criHary of the Baptist Pub lishes; Board, who is the father of Mrs. Benefield.

The public school of Paris has ta ken on a new lease of life under the princlpalship of Mrs. A. j: Hampton, who is now serving her .Irst term. New ideas of teaching and new meth ods of discipline have been inaugu rated, thus giving the school a new lease of usefulness. Mrs. Hamilton is a highly cultured Christian woman and instills her personality in her every effort. The patrons of the Par is school need' to be congratulated upon the acquisition of such talent as is possessed by Mrs. Hampton. The school has eight grades. The building is modern and well kept. Mrs. Hampton is well and favorably known in Nashville and Columbia, where her friends are legion. She was formerly Miss A. J. Dew, of Columbia. MISSES ALLEN AND DOGAN. Miss Lillian Dean Allen is spending the holidays with hei parents on Fourteenth avenue, North.

Both young icai exammauun In He was licensed to exhort by St. Paul A. M. E. Church at Columbia, Tenn.; joined the Conference at Murfreesboro; at tended Turner Normal College at Shelbyvislle, being one of the first to graduate from that institution. The degree of Doctor of Divinity was cor. ferred upon him by the trustees of of trouble with Negroes, particularly in winter, when traffic is' unusually heavy on the lower Mississippi. At times the Negro loustaboutfc "havef held out until the last minute for wages that were exorbitant. Many boats have backed out from their wharves at Memphis, St. Louis, New Orleans, Cairo and other places, car rying a crew of roustabouts who had been engaged at prices averaging move than $100 per month and board. On many occasions steamboat"? have left their landings hours, and even days, late, due to inability to get together a crew to handle the canro. This happpened seval times at St. Louis last fall. The packet companies have been working on this one prob lem for many years and a way of solving U appears to be in sight. White men from the east, north and west were imported to the sotitn, placed aboard these steamers, but, being wholly unaccustomed to such heavy work at all hours and a forced to sleep on top of all sorts of freight, eatinfr whon and where they could and being served with food that was anything but wholesome, but which the Negro '"rousters" thrived on, t soon dawned on the packet com panies that a return to Negro help would have to be made. In a statement made by John L. Matthews, secretary of the Mississip pi Valley Transportation Company, he said that it was the purpose of that company to employ white men in regular positions and care for and ray them in such manner as will be satisfactory to them. The idea is to employ union men. members of the Stevedores' Union, International Sea men's Union, Lake Seamen's Union and such organizations. A confer ence was held between Secretary Mat thews and Andrew Fureseth, Victor Olander and Frank Murray, all rep lesenting seamen's unions, during the convention of the American Fed eration of Labor in St. Louis. According to the statements made by these three men, If the proper ac commodations are provided, as near regular hours as can be afforded, with wholesome food, they will- take it upon themselves to furnish all the white labor necessary. The Missis sippi Valley Transportation Company will soon have in service its new steel steamers and barges. Much of the company's freight will be handled- by machinery, lifting out large units ri steel crates. To operate such machinery as this the Negro roustabouts would be in competent, and the result Is a strong effort to persuade white men from the great lakes who are skilled In such work, especially in stowing and handling of freight, to come to the river. ! Quarters aboard the steamers for these men will be comfortable, and shower baths will be- provided. Union wages will be paid and steady em ployment is promised. Miss Florence Burnett will attend an exercise at Clarksville, Tenn., Tues day night, of which managers and participants are Interested In our foreign mission self-denial work. ladies are expert entertainers and well accomplished in music, Miss Al len having charge of the musical de partment of Wiley University, this be lug her second year.

A telegram from Muskogee, Okla., , . J..J !. MnfkjrilU Oof. ! wmcn was ictcivea m Kaaunuo urday, announced the sudden death of Mr. Louis Beckham, the. oldest brother of Rev. Win. Beckham, of this city. The sad message met Rev. Beckham, who came home to spend Christmas. He was due to reach here ,-at 3:4j0 over the Dixie Flyer. The telegram came at 3 p. m. It gave no details, simply saying: "Your brother, Louis Beckham, dropped dead here to-day." Rev. Beckham wired instructions for interment, providing for all the expenses as he could not reach there for the funeral. Tr. Hampton is now the beloved pas tor cf Quinn Chapel, of Paris, Tenn. Ho is a power In the pulpit, being forcible Hind convincing speaker. He is destined to go higher in. the coun ills of his church, as he Is a man who has the courage of his convictions, daring to stand for what he conceives to be right at all times. His name is a household word throughout Middle Tennessee. The future holds much good In store for all such men as Dr. Hampton. PRESIDEN TKEALING IN THE CITY. Anion's if viitors who came home to spend the holidays was Dr. H. T. Kaling, President of Qulndara Uni versity, Kansas City, Kans. He came home to spend & week or so with hi? family, .who Is still residing here on Eighteenth avenue, North. Dr. Keal ing is mingling with hi 9 friends and looks the picture of health. When seen by a Globe representative be ax- pressed himself as well pleased with being in the educational work after a lapse of over fifteen years. It will be remembered that he was at one time president of Paul Quinn College, at Waco, Texas, the educa-: tional institution conducted by the African Methodist Church in that state. He was elected editor of the A. M. E. Review in 1S9G, which posi tion he filled until a few months ago. He states that he will continue the rmblication of the Quarterly Review ere in Nashville until the next con ference of the A. M. E. Church which 's to -meet In Kansas City In 1912, but will not charge the church one cent for his services. The Doctor is non-committal as to whom he favored as his, successor or whether the church would continue to have the magazine published here in Nashville. The institution over which Dr. Keal Ing holds the rein? is one. of great promise. Situated as it is in the new West, and in a section wliere the Ne gro population is increasing at a rapid rate, Quindaro University has a splen did opportunity to render a great ser vice. The closest college to this one is Lincoln University, and that insti tution caters almost exclusively to the state of Missouri, leaving the whole west to look to the university at Kan sas City, Kans., for educational oppor tunities. The territory to be drawn upoa consists of the states of Kansas. Oklahoma, Nebraska, Colorado, South Dakota, Wyoming. Utah and as far as California. The new president stales that lv" has hope of a larger appropria tion Hie incoming year for the work tr.an has been given by any former egisiature. The plant already has five arge substantial brick buildintrs. situated on a tract of land of one nmdred and thirty acres. The state vill be asked for an appropriation of $114,000 for the erection of new bulld- ngs and the installation of a central heating plant. Dr. Kealing is very well nleased with his new work, and believes that some day this college will be the lead ing university in the west for the higher education of the Negro youth.
