FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 1911. An Apology. Recently there appeared an article in the columns of this paper headed "People Amazedi" The article re ferred to was a discussion of the cel ebrate! Waters case. The reporter made a statement in that article that was not germane to the, case , under discussion, but which, on the other hand, cast a shadow aver the other teachers of the city and the Board of Education as well. This fact has been called to our attention and we gladly offer an apology to the teach ers and the Board of Education for the injustice done them. It is our aim to do justice to every one. We do not countenance reflections upon innocent officials or individuals, and if we say or permit to be said one word in. our columns that casts a, shadow over any one we are willing to make amends for the same. The Globe is the servant of the people. We feel it our duty to, as best we can, point the people to paths of truth. We prefer to always say good things about everybody, but that is Impossible, consequently we always try to state nothing but facts. We never intentionally make a false statement, for it is our aim, to build up all and tear down none. in favor of the Negro firemen. It is simply anqther proof of the oft re peated assertion that the Southern white man is the best rrlend the Ne gro has in this country. The disastrous fires wo are having in the large cities should cause the city officials everywhere to insist on ftro escapes being put on all buildings over two stories high. 'Human life i3 a valuable asset to the individual. Gev. Hooper is manifesting a spe cial Merest in the Negro Normal Col lege. 'The youth of the race of this day and of days to come will be taught to reverence his name. If the' State Assembly would pass the anti-garnishment bill they would do a great- service to the Negroes of the state. We too often contract for more than we have ability to pay. 1'am willing to take it as long as it I is published. Yes, I feel that every Negro should have it in his home. It was more than a treat to read of the I leading people of our race at the re ception of Hon. J. C. Napier. Yours for the race, MRS. M. E. SCOTT, Erin, Tenn. - . INQUIRY. Edwardsville, Kans.. Mar 15, '11. Information Bureau, please tell me if there are any su h men as Ltney and Scott Lyons in your city. 1 thought maybe their names would be on the records; if so, please, notify me, as I am their father and would like to know their address. They are colored men and I have lost account of them. Yours sincerely, ' If any reader of the Globe knows the parties herein sought, please noti fy us either in person or letter. The excursion season will soon be on. Remember how you suffered for coal thijs winter before you lay off a day to go to the picnic. Greenwood Park is rapidly gaining national notoriety. The owner and promoter is that typo of man that knows no defeat. Firemen's Strike. The white firemen who left their post of duty on the Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific railroad be cause Negroes were given jobs as firemen on the same road have re turned to their jobs without gaining their point. It was a mean and unprincipled at tepmt to throw these men out of their jobs simply because they are black. The officials of the road are to be commended for the stand they took EDITORIAL CLIPPINGS. WHAT ENDED THE CIVIL WAR? It has been, as a rule, taken for granted that the South was worsted in a fair fight in the field. This la bo in a moderate degree only; for the fight was not wholly a fair one. Differences of forces in the field may bo set aside, as the fight being on the ground of the weaker, any disproportion in num bers was largely annulled. But the army of the North was lavishly equipped; there was no want of arms, food, rai ment, ammunition or medical care. Everything an army could have the Federal forces had to overflowing. On the other hand, the Southern army was starved of all necessaries, not to speak of the luxuries which the abounding North poured forth for its men in the field. The South was in want of many of these necessaries even in the be ginning of war;' toward the end it was in want of all. It was because of this want that it had to yield. Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, writing General Beauregard in 18C8, said truly: "We, without the means of purchasing sup plies of any kind, or procuring or re pairing arms, could continue this war only as robbers of guerrillas." The Southern army finally melted away and gave up the fight because it had arrived at the limit of human endur ance through the suffering which came of the absolute want brought by the blockade. From "The Federal Navy and the South," by Admiral French E. Chadwick, In the American Review of Reviews for April. Editor of the Globe: Please grant us space in your large ly circulated paper to say a word to the good people of Nashville and ad joining vicinities relative to the great meeting which bas been going on for twelve days at the Mt Olive Baptist Church. Rev. J. S. Ladelle, of Argen ta, Ark., has conducted the meeting for 'us this year in the old-fashioned way, and It has been perfectly satlsfac tory to all. Many soul3 have been brought to confess Christ, forty-two hav'ng joined the Mt. Olive Baptist Church, while a goodly number have joined the other churches. ' Rev. Ladelle is an evangelist after the New Testament order. May God bless him with a long life to do much good as a pastoral evangelist. Dr. J.

A set consists of one flagon, two goblets nd 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. EURTHLR. INFORMATION CONCERNING PRICES AND TERMS, . W RITB TO THE NATIONAL BAPTIST CHURCH SUPPLY Co., R. II.
