You have all seen women whose lives were ruined by bt ing tied to lazy, shiftless husband3.

And you have seen the home where there has been extravagance when tho. father worked and poverty when he did not. The woman mar ried to a man of that "stamp never knows where she stands; her nerves are constantly on the rack; she knows that no matter how good her husband position may be he will lose it through incompetency, or changeableness on his part So you see. gMs, it s of the utmost impor tance to your future ihappiness that you do not throw yourself away on men of either of these types'.' Every her home. Mr. W. H. McGavock is convals cen from an attack of malaria fever but is not shle to leave his room - The Memorial Club met at the Haw kins Street Baptist Churchy Monday night, January 23. It has a large membership and is doing good work under the management of the presi dent, Mr. Wm, Sheffield.

Hill Idle man is of no use to any body He might just as well not exist as far as usefulness goes, in fact, it would be better if he did not, as he sets a bad example to other men The ordinary, every-day, lazy man that we come in contact with has no money to back his laziness. When ho marries his wife has to support him. He probably makes love very well why - shouldn't, he? he has nothing else to do. Keep away from such men, girls, and keep them away from you; no matter how cajolin: their tale of love may be. There are tetter things in life for you than mar rlage to the shiftless, good-for-nothing typo of men. American Negro. THE WAY T00VERG0Y.E. He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. The question of life and death is the most imp rtant to the human fam ily. Everybody works to that effect No one cares particularly for death or has any special love for death Death makes nothing which was not good before; hence the suicide finds no pleasure in taking his own life "Can't stop here." Read! His is dead hope. Even the lower animals dread death and cling to life. The fowls of the c-ir shrink from death, When a man is separated from his wife permanently they are dead to each other. Just so it Is with the man who is out of God. He Is dead to God and God to him. When a man leaves this world his spirit sepa iate3 from his body and takes its power which is In us. Man would fall into many pits and bypaths did he not heed the command of the spir it which bids him come. The spirit acta upon matters ' thua giving the man who is desiious of doing right an opportunity to do so. A great many people think they can make mends with the devil. But there is no compromise. He will tell you all sorts of things and was never known to tell the truth. You have three weapons with which to fight this bat tle. The first weapon is God the Fa ther; second, God the Son, and third, uod the Holy Ghost. Faith, love and obedience will conquer all your strug gles and hardships and enable you to overcome death.

LOVE THE KEY OF ALL KING DOMS. . Love Is the light and sunshine of life. We cannot fully enjoy ourselves or anything else, unless some one we love enjoys it with us; even if we are alone, we store up our ,en joyments in hope to share them hereafter with one we love. Love lasts all through life, and adapts Itself to every age, in childhood, in . manhood, for wife and throughout for brothers, sisters, relatives and friends. Nor must the love of animals be altogether omitted. Love will mako men dare to die for their loved women a9 well as men. The origin of love has puzzled the philosophers almost as much as the origin of evil. Love at first sight sounds like an imprudence and yet Is almost a revelation. True love will not be unreasonable or exacting. Love is brittle and will not stand much of a jar. ESSENTIAL QUALITIES YOUNG GIRLS. "Do not waste your time on a lazy man or one who cannot keep a Job." death, means separation from God for ever. If the' soul has made no prepa ration, the second death is a worse death than the first. The soul does exist and is conscious of it, otherwise it could not oxperience joy and sor row. When brought before God every thought, word or action, from the day of man's birth to his death is record ed. If he has done his best the ac count balances in his favor; If not God deals with him according to his deeds. It is not what you said or what you did, but what you really were that will count with God. Re member the subject; "He that over cometh shall not be hurt by the sec ond death." There are three foes with whic man must battle in thi3 life: 1st, the world; 2nd., the flesh, and third, the devil. God did not intend' that we should enjoy this world or the thing3 provided therein for the mans com' fort, for the principles of this world are against God. When a man's sou is converted, that does not mean the flesh; the flesh has all tho passion it ever had; has absolutely undergone no change and will undergo none un til the mortal puts on Immortality, How then can we deal with the sun 15 ytiil'S SUPP Lzai till niE RIGHT VESSELS USED TO 6QL1L1EL10RATE IT ANY 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 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. URITB TO THE NATIONAL BAPTIST CHURCH SUPPLY Co., R. H.

Church Rev. S. L. Howard, the pastor took occasion to thank. the ladies for the splendid manner in which tliey handled the arrangements and prepared for the entertainment of the wedding of his daughter. He said words failed him to express his appreciation of their kindness. It is not generally known that dec orations of the church and arrange ments for the reception at home were all done by the ladies of the church. They took absolute charge of the wed ding and it Is conceded by all that the manner in which this wedding was conducted has never been excelled. NEW CEILING IN ONE DAY IN ST. JOHN CHURCH. On Thursday of this week the members and friends of St. John A. M. E. Church, under the leadership of the pastor, Rev. S. L. Howard, with Messrs. Samuel Johnson and Wm. Harlon, superintending put in a new ceiling completing the same in one day.

A horse with four absolutely sound legs is worth in the market almost whatever the owner chooses to ask for him. This being the case, atten ti6n to the colt's feet, and to the shoeing later, is well worth while. 'For many years hogs were regard ed as a by-product of the farm, but to-day they are one of the main in come producers in many sections. Yet too oftrm they are cared for as though 'they were still a by-product of little account. With butter going off at fifty cents a pound there is good profit in a win ter dairy. Just as good butter can be made in the winter as in any other season. Cleanliness is the watch word, and fresh cows are Important. It is hard making butter of any kind with "strippers."
