NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1912.
1 MACEDONIAN CRY ANSWERED HOME MISSION BOARD RE PORTS THROUGH ITS CHAIR MAN. J. P. ROBINSON, AND SEC RETARY, ff. H. BOYD NATION AL BAPTIST CONVENTION DO ING A GREAT WORK ON HOME ! FIELDS PANAMA AND THE j WEST GETS ..RELIEF TEN ' YEARS' RECORD SHOWN IN j REPORT. Houston, Tex., Sept. 12, 1912. The i Macedonia cry, "Come over and help j us," that wag uttered hundreds of I years ago has been heard' by the Na-j tlonal Baptist Convention and is be ing responded to by the Home Mis sion Board. No greater proof of ! this fact has ever been brought to light, than the report of the Board made through its Secretary, Rev. It. H. Boyd, D. D., of Nashville, Tenn. In this report the Convention is given credit for doing a masterly work. Secretary Boyd shows . that the banner of Emanuel has been established in every clime and coun Jtry where the Stars and Stripes now float. He shows that more than fifty-seven thousand dollars have been expended in the prosecution of mission work on what the denomina tion calls "home fields" within the past twelve months. In the report he deals with the Home MlsBton work as It affects the National Baptist Convention. The work is subdivided under the pecu liar relation that the Home Mission Board sustains to -organized Baptist work; the organization of the Home Mission Board in 1895, Missionary co-operative plans or the Home Mis sion Board, our work In the States and Territories in co-operation with the State and Territorial Conven iens, the combined co-operative plans of do'ng general missionary, Sunday school and colportage work general ly, Bible conferences and Theological Training, the National Baptist Con vention's Missionary vtork in the' wes'tmi states, the work of the Field 'Secretary, our missionary work in ether territories and the Canal Zone and Panama work, showing a com plete and systematic missionary plan of operation that has taken in every phase of the work. Ten years, from 1902 to 1911, of the missionary operations are given in this report. The tabulation shows that 4G7 missionaries have been employed in that time, and that they have delivered 84,445 sermons tind lectures; 1,435 Missionary Bap tist Sunday-schools and churches have been organized; 41,518 churches, associations and conventions were visited by them and 1,051,225 miles traveled with a total expenditure of $385,511,24. Never in the history of the National Baptist Convention have such splendid results been shown by co-operation under the va rious missionary Boards and the s-everal state organizations. The work of the Board, this fiscal year, which closed August 31st, 1912, as Is found In the report, shows a decided Increase over the returns of last year, notwithstanding the many difficulties and obstacles that had to be overcome. , The recommendation of the Home Mission Board concerning the work in the western part of the United St etasit.wih cmfwy mfw mfw mfwy States, with Its inexhaustible field is taken to mean that the Missionary Baptists will not only branch out further in the work they have been doing In Panama, where they have $10,000 worth of property, three churches and three parsonages, and where they have been so royally treated, but that they will penetrate the far West and send ministers to the Dakotas, Wyoming and other states where no organized Baptist churches are better operated. Dr. Boyd has been secretary of the Home Mission Board for sixteen years, during which time Dr. J. P. Robinson, A. M., D. D., of Little Rock, Ark., has been chairman. When the report was made It was received with hearty approval by the thou sands of Baptist who showed deep Interest In the work. VISITING HOME PEOPLE. Mrs. W. T. Francis and Mrs. R. B.

Olive i affairs there. and chairman of the Publishing Board, just before leaving for the scenes of the Convention now in ses sion at Houston. The same appears to be the senti ment of the entire Nashville delega tion. . Some are not afraid to say that they want the Convention In 1914. However, those who know say the pastors will formulate their plans when they return; then it will be known what the desire any "rate, Nashville is not a is. At'j bidder for the next year's Convention. Most of the delegates who left favor some point in the East like Philadelphia, Baltimore or Atlantic City. NASHVILLIANS IN TEXAS.

After a lapse of more than three months from South Nashville, the Sunday-School Union held its regular monthly meeting on the South side last Sunday. They were entertained by the Sunday-school of the Mt. Gi les d Eaitlst Church, Rev. R. Page, pastor, and Mr. S. Buchanan, super intendent. The meeting was well attended.

CHICAGOANS IN THE CITY. Rev. J. F. Thomas, D. D., pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, Thirty seventh and Dearborn, Chicago, 111., spent Sunday In the city.

Olive Baptist Church! ; Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The rudienee, composed of the members of the Society and their friends, was not only lirgf but very appreciative. Rev. C. If. Clark, D. D., pastor of the church, was to have preached the fermon, but sine the Rev. Thomns, of Chicago, 111., a J, F. noted ! mormVr of the G. A.

Special . music was furnished by Mt. Olive choir and an extra large collection was lifted. President Foster and his workers are planning great Improvements and a large membership campaign. WHITE MAN TURNS BLACK. Mr. S. A. Hendricks, St. Louis, Mo., has been growing black for the past five months, and now he ia as black as any man in the Ju.igles; this disabuses the theory that black men are tho sons of Ham, but "have turned dark by other caus . other than from climatic condign or en vironments. This ty it be a hard pill for Mr, . . i , Hendricks, as he Is from To the reading public the name of Roscoe Conkling Simmons is some thing of a household word. He has long been regarded as the foremost journalist of the race, and as the gifted orator of the nation's plat form. He has been successively owner and editor of the National Re view, the editorial writer of the New York Age, and staff writer for the great metropolitan dailies. He has long been known as the "official orator"' of New York. It was no easy thing. for Col. Simmons to turn his back upon the scenes of his la bors and his triumphs to take up ac tivities in. this field. But the growth of Chicago as the capital of the di versified efforts of the colored race appeals to him as reason sufficient to develop here the race's greyest nw?paper. The Chronicle feels that in per suading Col. Simmons to transfer his public activities to Chicago it has done the community and the race everywhere a no unimportant ser vice. Watch the Chronicle beme the leading journal. Dr. J. B. Singleton, desires his many friends to know that he has moved his office from 108 Cedar street (Brown nio-ekl to 110 Cedar street, People's Savings Ban & Trust Company build ing, up stairs in rooms frmerly occu pied by the late Dr. R. F. Boyd. DOCTOR TELLS OF HOSPITAL. (Continued from Page 1.) the hospital is the place for them when sick,- especially, when the cer tainty of their life cepends upon careful and scientific nursing and treatment. Our people must be taught the advantage of comfortable, well-lighted and airy comnutniciit. over dark, damp and dingy quarters in some basement. They must be taught how to prevest the spread of contageoiis diseases by separating thebselves from others when so un fortunately afflicted. They must be taught the beneficial isfluence and ef fects that sanitation has upon the cure of disease, and they must be driven away from the idea that any cure is found in patent nostrums of quack remedies. They must be taught to get out from the alleys where the sun never shines, to get out from over sewers and horse sta bles, and to stop moving into houses before they are properly fumigated. Physicians and citizens alike are mustered into service in this work of redemption of our people from the thraldom of that most dreaded of all diseases consumption. And now it becomes us, one and ! all, to show our appreciation to the Mayor, and the City Council ,of Nash I ville and the Davidson County Court for the establishment of this Tuber- rlll"S18 'ispaai, ny using our lntlu- ''nce 10 pei i"se who are unfortu nately tne victims of consumption to go there for treatment, and most im port:) nt of all to go there before it is too late, There are many con sumptives in Nashville among our peop'e, who ought to be there now. In fact if the proper steps were tak en every bed would be filled and we would be In position to demand more nuartcrs and demand separate quar ters In order that those who are nost advanced in the disease may be separat-d from those who are In tlie first stages. M. C. L. 11 lie Young Men s Literary Club as- ,in,,p" t neir permanent quarters in Pythian Temple, on last Monday night, with FTe. newly" elected oilieers i i cliarijf. The club has outline: an excellent plan upon which will depend its future. It proposes to publish a monthly magazine, thus more forcibly and clearly emphasizing the scope and unselfish aim of the Club. It also in tends to outline and pursue a definite and efficient course of study such as will reflect dignity and credit upon the club as a patron of literature and its kindred arts." Visitors are al ways welcome. i MR. LUCK'S ENTERTAINS. The waiters of the Hotel BUmarch tendered a magnificent banquet to their headwaiter, Mr. J. H. Rucks, Friday night, in the Little Savoy Cinlng moms. The cafe was b. auti-! fully decorated for the occasion with ! ferns and American Beauty roses, Trallng vima we.e everywhere ar- j tistically arranged. The tables were ritpleedent with cut glass and sterl ing sliver. The menu follows; Soup, consomme In cups, claret wine, ten derloin of trout, tartar sauce, cham pagne, lamb chops and asparagus, French peas, stuffedd tomatoes, C. C, charlotte russe, cheese and coffee, French brandy and cigars. Those present were J. II. Rucks. Foster L. Covington, Henry McCall, j H. Cole, J. H. Prince, H. Griffin, Mitchell, Jonas Washington, Thomas MR. J. H. RUCKS. Linston, Hickman Hannah, W. J. Moore and .lames Moore. Mr. J. II. Prince acted as toastniaster. Mr. Foster L. Covington responded to the toast "Waiters' Union;" Mr. J. H. Rucks' responded to the toast, 'Can a Waiter be a Man?" He han dled hi-! subject in a. masterly way. Among other things he said the wait er, above all things, must be a man ly man, respecting and encouraging morality and virtue. He was loudly applauded. Mr. Rucks has been with the Bismarch twelve years. His men speak In high terms of him. He lift for Lebanon Monday, where he will take a much-needed rest for a week or ten days. Mr. Henry Mc Call went with him. "STREAMLETS OF POETRY." A book of one hundred pages writ ten and published by Rev. G. W. Por ter, recently of Memphis, Tenn., now pastor of St. John A. M. E. Church, tb's city, is a little volume of poems of three clas-es, serious, humorous a:id sentimental. Among the serious may be mentioned "The Heroine of the Delta," where a black woman suffered death by a mob at the stake with her husband, in the Mississippi Delta, after being tortured in every possible way to wring from her a confession which she refused to the last to make. "Our Fathers Were Friends, Why Not We?" is drawn from a conversation which the writer heard between his father and his ex master after the close of the Civil War, and is full of good hard sense. Many others of this class are well worth reading. Among the sentimental are many pleasing poems, among which may be noted: 'When Booker Came to Town," which the writer wrote after he had introduced Mr. Washington to the large audience which greeted him at Clarksvllle, Tenn., on his special trip through this state in 1909. "Keep Your Feet On the Ground," is another of this class which is fraught with much whole some advice about buying homes, etc. In the humorous class, perhaps his "Bill and Rastus" is the very best in the book, though there are many of this class that will entertain any lover of humorous poetry. There are many poems on Easter or The RositrrectiTn, The Christmas Festival and the N-w Year, that are above the ordinary. Perhaps the most classic poem in the book is the l?st number, where the writer pours out his soul in a tribute to his only ton, who died just about the time he was merging into mmhood and when he was fnlshing his last term in college. The Pttle book has been fa vorably commented upon by eminent scholars of both raws. Rev. R. C. Ransom, of New York, now editor of the A. M. E. Review; Prof. W. S. Scarborough, president of Wilber force University; Prof. I. M. Burgan, president Paul Quinn College, Waco, Tex., and many other scholars of note have written favorably of the book. DEATHS.

THE STATE FAIR WHAT IT MEANS TO THE PEOPLE OF TENNESSEE. of Agriculture. Tennessee has no greater educa tional Institution than the State Fair. It means the production of greater revenue to the common weath; it meanB the explolture of advanced ideas; it means happiness. The State fair stands for education in every department Ir the Wom an's Department it stands for the betterment of the home, . the child, the grown up. It deals with the health of the people; it treats with industrial education. It gives out many hundreds of lessons in domes tic science. It gives practical demon strations from bread-making to soap- maKing. it deals with horticulture, the kitchen, garden, the conservatory. It furnishes Instruction to the child, the young girl, the woman. It teach es tne simplest and best methods of employment for both hand and mind It deals with the handiwork o' wouen. It deals with objects and subjeclsJhat are paramount to all others ia home making. The Wom an's Department is fiist in impor tance. What uoes it mean to the schools? Tt means much to the city and coun tiy schools, and exerts a wholesome influence upon all who participate in their coi.trol. There is no study more entertaining and more useful than those branches of nprtnuHnro I dealing with plant and animal life as snown at the State Fair, and it Is worth quite. as much to the young as to those who are older and whose minds are less conceptive. What does it mean to the farmer? Agriculture stands out pre-eminent In the great advancement of the arts, and that venerable tribute to be found in the sayings of Solomon, that the "King himself is served by the field," might be eald to be the language of inspired wisdom, arous ing our noblest ambitions. Food, raiment and luxuries innumerable are the fruits of the farmer's labor and care, and in this train follow health, happiness and independence. Much as the wealth and prosperity of a nation may be advanced by com merce and manufacture, still we are constrained to look upon agriculture as its source and foundation. This being bo, what does the State Fair mean to the farmer? It means education. It means how best to improve farming operations, Imnroved farming Implements, how and when to use to the best advantage getting the largest yields with the SAM'L I.. CARTER.

It means, with the effici ent material at our command, the covering of our land with smiling fields and waving harvests, thereby creating larger bank accounts. What does the State Fair mean to the live stock breeder? It means more pounds at minimum cost. It means the kind to raise for food and the best age to slaughter. It means what breeds produce the test results at the pail. It means the thoroughbred's victory over the scrub In every contest. It brings to close range the best sheep, mules, horses, ponies, beef cattle, dairy cat tle, hogs, so that every one interest ed can see the finished product at its best. It means to the ambitious a re-'olve that he will strive to have something better than the other fel low at the next fair. No man can see and study the best types of all breeds of horses, cattle, sheep and swine as shown at the State Fair and again look with complacency upon a lot of scrub stock at home. What does it mean to the attend ant? All classes of people need respite from labor. It means that fair week should be known as holiday week. There Is a delightful social and de sirable mingling of the people, and a f -eling of mutual interest and re spect. Acquaintances are greatly ex tended. The, State Fair Is particu larly beneficial to the country people in this respect, for their opportuni ties for recreation are not numerous. There is an educational purpose even in the amusements. The trot ting and pacing races are so planned and conducted as to encourage the breeding of better and more useful horses, the athletic features are so arranged as to stimulate the physical develonment of the people In the same manner as the Olympic games for the ancient Greeks. There is no home, farm, factory or commercial enterprise that is not benefited directly or indirectly by tho State Fair. There are the same be nefits for the inventor and manufac i turer ps for the farmer and stock man. In stimulating Industries the State Fair exerts an ever widoninar influence. The general exhibltloi or any article of merit increases popu lar knowledge and demand for it and enhances prices accordingly. Let any new and useful article appea among the exhibits at the State Fair and almost immediately there is a demand for it that will tax th9 ca pacity of the manufacturers. In no way can producers improve the mark ets with so little expenditure of time and money as In making exhibits at the State Fair. The State Fair means we have re sources worthy of general attention and a people who know how to Im prove and utilize them. The Tennessee State Fair, which will be held at Nashville September 16-21, is going to be the biggest and best exhibition ever held in the his tory of the Association. Let every loyal citizen of Tennessee commence now to arrange his or her plans to attend this great exhibition in Sep tember. onunui oirnnfiijoU LilllMHi 1 I lJll'i ii Phone your order, to Main 1571 PHONE.
