7 Clarksville News and Comment. Last week was a great week in Clarksville, being the occasion of the annual spring carnival conducted by tha Knights of Pythias (white). Hundred of our people donned their holiday attire and strutted the streets, Tiaited the carnival grounds and pat ronized liberally the many attrac tions. They seemed to never stop to think that these same Knlghta of Pythias are spending hundreds of dol lars through the courts to destroy the colored Knights of Pythias, Just be cause they are colored. The only or ganization in the country that has gone into the courts to try to force the disbanding of an organization of Negroes Just because they have the same name, forms and ritual as- they, and yet I am informed that they could not get enough colored Knights of Pythias together to hold regular lodge meeting last week, so greatly were they carried away with the carnival given by their arch enemies. When will we learn to stand upon our dig nity as a race? The country schools are closing and the teachers are. coming in and re suming their accustomed places In society, Sunday-school and choirs, and we are all happy to see them. Mrs. Francis Beaumont, who has been teaching in Guthrie, Ky., left here on the 21st for Indianapolis, Ind., where she will visit her daughter, Mrs. Ben Hudson and Miss Beatrice, also Master George, who are attend ing school In that city.

Mrs. Hays and her little babe were In the best of health when they left. Rev. P. J. Coleman spent a part of the week In Nashville. "Ship wrecks" was the subject of Rev. Dr. Graham's sermon last Sunday night, in which he drew many striking les sons from the. wreck of the Titanic, perhaps the. most forceful being, False Notions of Security. On Saturday, the 20th, at 11 o'clock a. m. at the residence of the bride's parents, Mr. Daniel Wooden, of Ken tucky, and Miss Mary Walker, of this city, were united in the- holy bonds of matrimony by the Rev. D. A. Gra ham. The bride is the youngest daughter of Rev. G. W.- Walker and the groom is a prosperous young farmer, of Christian County, Ky. The happy couple left for their home the same day. The Sunday-school of St John Baptist Church was largely attended. Visitors, two; new schol ars, three.' Rev. S. W. Tolea preached one of his soul-stirring sermons at 11:30 o'clock, and also at night The sermon of the Gideons was preached by Rev. Cross. It was largely at tended by members out of town. The Carnation Circle met at the church with Sister Eliza Duncan. Two courses were served. The King's Sons met as usual with much inter est in their work. The May fair has been announced to open the 6th of May, followed by the rally. The county school has closed. Many of our teachers may fall in line and help push the battle to the front.

Brentwood, Tenn. On Monday, Mrs. Jency Hadley, possibly the old est and without a doubt the best- known woman In this county, passed away. She was regarded by all as the most lovable and the widely- known member of the race, having lived right here for nearly one hun dred years. At her death, It la re ported that she was ninety-eight years of age. Something more than passing is noted In the life of Mrs. Hadley whose father, Mr. Tom Ed- mondson, became famous because of the dash that he made for liberty dur ing the emancipation, but after being overtaken succeeded In purchasing his freedom. It was said then that he was near the Gulf of Mexico and had determined to go to Liberia. The grandfather of Mrs. Hadley was Mr. Jerry Bennlng, a free-horn man, who followed the brick-layer trade In Nashville more than a hundred years ago. He and his wife lived on Wm. Perkin's plantation. She was known for miles around as Aunt Sucky. Mrs. lladloy's death occurred Just one mile east of this place on the Franklin pike, and she was celebrated because of her deeds of charity and kindness of heart, as she had served as foster mother for scores of motherless and fatherless children. The funeral ser vices took place at the family resi dence at 7 p. m., Rev. Tom Johnson officiating.

The Hoard of Directors of the Nash ville Young Men's Christian Asso ciation is seeking to extend the help ful activities of th Association to the colored men of the city. The recent visits to Nash' ille of Mr. Juli us Rosenwald, the Hebrew philan thropist who is so genuinely interest ed In work for colored boys and young men, has stimulated the inter est in this department of the Asso ciation work in Nashville a3 well as throughout the entire South. Mr. Rosenwald, it will be remem bered, has offered to give $25100 for te erection of a colored young men's association building provided ft 5,000 additional be raised for a similar pur pose. It has not seemed wise to the Board of Directors of the Nashville Young Men's Christian Association to undertake the raising of a fund for a building In Nashville. The Board of Directors has, however, taken a step which ought to mean a great deal for the welfare of the colored boys and young men of the city. For a number of years there has been an association among the color ed men of the city, and 'much good work has been accomplished. This work has been in charge of compe tent colored men, but on account of lack of financial assistance, has had a very hard struggle. It has not been possible heretofore to secure the services of a competent, trained colored secretary for this important work. The large interest which the Board of Directors of the Nashville Association has in the colored men1 of the community has resulted In the Board agreeing to make provision for the salary of an associational secre tary for this department of the work After careful search, considerable investigation, and on the recommen dation of the International Commit tee, a call has been extended to Wm N. Sanders, of Columbia, S. C. Mr Sanders has accepted the call, and is now on the field. The new secre- lu " coiorea work is a native of South Carolina, a college graduate, and has had considerable experience in teaching and in special religious work. He comes highly recommend ed and Is believed to be the right man for the place. The membership of the colored as sociation has already conferred with Mr. Sanders and arrangements are being made by the pastor3 of tho colored churches for a large public mass-meeting, full announcement of which will be made at a later date.
