Almost tbe entire official family of the National Baptist Convention is in this city to day ho'ding a meeting at the Olivet Baptist Church, corner Twenty seventh and Dearborn streets. A call for this meeting was issued by Rev. E. C. Morris, D. D., Helena, Ark., president of the National Baptist Convention. The same call has been sent out through the secretary, Prof. R. B. Hudson, Selma, Ala. The meeting was called at 12 o'clock, Dr. Morris presiding. The purpose of the meeting is to outline the five days' work of the National Baptist Convention, that Is to be held at Houston, Texas, from September 11th to 16th. The idea prevailing at this meeting is to give each of the five boards operated in the Conven tion, a time and place on the pro gram at Houston, as it is expected that this meeting of the Convention will eclipse all others in point of attendance and In enthusiasm. While there were a large number of Baptists- in the city there was more In terest in the Republican Convention proper than there appeared in the meeting of the program committee, yet the session of the committee to day claimed an attendance of nota bles in their denomination. Many of the officia's and leaders of the Baptists are to remain over this week to take part in or to be spectators at the Republican National Convention. New England atid the East seem to vie with the South ttnd West for rep resentatives in the Windy City, how ever, not alii of them took any part in the program committee meeting. IMPROVEMENTS AT GREENWOOD. Visitors to Greenwood Park Sunday afternoon who took advantage of the hot and sultry weather, that has been tin? order of the, day for the past week, to roam the hills and to enjoy the shade of one of the coolest spots in Tennessee, saw the wonderful ,im provements that have been made at the park. New features and build- ings. modern improvements for the pleasure seekers who go to this out ing place have been added to the already well-equipped resort, making it now one of the most complete parks in the South. About twelve thousand dollars worth pf improve ments bave been made this spring this estimate is considered conserva tive by those who know the value of the improvements added. The' new features seen by the park visitors and that will be taken advantage of by the summer crowds who are sure to throng this pleasure spot week days and Sundays are as follows: One Titanic swing, something new, a novelty that will ho'd eight persons. The installing of the Titanic swing was quite an innovation, it is located on the front lawn just in front of the club house. Then there is a new electric merry-go-round situated Just across the driveway from the steam merry-go-round. The addition of thia gives the children a sufficient number to enable every one of them to get their ride and to spend pleasant even ings In this pasttime that is so popu lar among the Httle ones. Next is a roulette wheel just completed last week and is located near the largo pavillion and concert hall. This wheel is the on'y one now being op erated in Nashville, there Is no doubt but that the management of Green wood Park scored a great victory in securing this modern pleasure device for the park.' The woman's building was the last addition to the park. For several years the women have been clamoring for a building that they could designate for their own on the grounds of the park, especially since the State Fair holds their Beasions on the ground, hence, Mr. Treston Tay'or, the proprietor of the park, de cided to convert the old skating rink into a woman's building. In addition to this a penny arcade, a new feature in which there are installed sixty three scenic machines completes the most important list of improvements. Since last week the park has been opened in full blast thousands of people from the city have already vis ited the South's most famous city park. The management contemplates further improvements. a3 the season grows o'der and the crowd Increases, in order that more pleasure and a greater pasttime will be TEACHERS' INSTITUTE. r Special to the Globe.

Much of the time In "Talks to Farmers" we have tried to emphasize the importance of getting the soil broken deep with all the vegetable matter possible added and the soil thoroughly pulverized before planting. Where this has been done fully and the surface stirred often the moisture will be conserved and the crop will grow right on even if we do have a dry spell; to the extent that it is neglected will the crop suffer from dry weather. We have known farm ers to quit plowing because of dry weather when they should have work ed the surface of the soil into a dust mulch. Of course if the farmer has adhered to his old methods of break ing his ground shallow and has put his seed into the ground before the feoil was pu'verized, he may expect to have clods to contend with, will lose his moisture and his crop can not feed on the plant food in the soil. His crops will not be profitable and he can only have himself to blame. The harvest and haying season is now here and wshou!d use every precaution to save our crops when made. We have seen splendid wheat crops practically lost after it was In the shock by letting it remain after it. was ready to go either to the ma chine or to the. barn If a thresher was not available. Anyone who travels over the country and is observant will see many tons of hay ruined after it is cut by delay in getting it protected. Such 'osses to the farmer are inex-1 cuable in the majority of cases. At tention to detail doing the right thing at the right time in the right way, puts the balance on the right side of the farmer's ledger. In the cultivation of corn, we should try to give the ground a thorough sha'low stirring at least once every ten days. Once a week would bo better. The constant stirring of the surface -Foil kil's the weeds and con serves the moisture in the soil. This year much interest will be taken in politics but it should never interfere with the farmer's work, he is morn direct'y interested in his crops, or should be, than in po'itics. He should be informed on policies of government, State and National, and shou'd be able to vote intelligently for the party that advocates the poli cies best for a'l the people, but when he neglects his personal interests to participate in. political wrangles no matter what his political convictions, he is doing himself and his family an injustice.
