HAWKINS ELECTED CASH IER OF PEOPLE'S SAVINGS BANK AND TRUST CO. The Board of Directors of the Peo ple's Savings Bank and Trust Com pany held their regular monthly meet ing Wednesday night in the Directors' room in the bank building.

JJr. J . n. riait- ic.iu me iriiuit ii the executive committee, after which the election of a cashier was taken up. Mr. W. D. Hawkins, the assis tant cashier, was unanimously elected cashier and teller. Mr. Hawkins ha world has always had great adniira-j eni with the bank since its organisa tion for manly and courageous men. tion, and has risen from the position V... iM.mr...

He Is some degree as to what constitutes a j thoroughly familiar with the work manly and courageous man, but funda- ine of the institution, which means mentally there has been little change, that the business will move alo-i-i , . , . , , ,. . without a hitch. The Board of Di- There is one principle of manliness ; rtorvot,,r l0 pn mit t'0 Roger Wil- that the American people have always ;liams university on the 15th to wit stressed, and that is respect for worn- ness Ex-Cashier Townscnd's inauj;u anhood. An American who will not ration as president of that institu- protect a woman is considered le;i3 than a coward. Strange to say, how ever, Negro men are slow to becowe imbued with this great fundamental principle. They make a great noise about their women, but when the test comes they shrink from their duty, and in too many instances leave the Negro women exposed to the humilia tion and abuse of the world. No stronger proof of this weakness may be cited than the case on the Jefferson street car last Sunday, when a lot of Negro men permitted a white man to jerk a colored girl from a seat and strike another with his fist and then call her all of the vile names in the vocabulary of blackguard and pro fanity. A true man would not con sider his life one moment under sum conditions, but would spill his last drop of blood as willingly as he would take a drink of water. It is hard to conceive of Buch cowardice. Such are not worthy to be called men. Think how helpless a woman would be who should chance to have such a coward for a husband. Shame on those creatures with men's attire as a covering. But there was one man on that car. A Negro man with the pure iron in the blood. He was not dressed in loud stockings, green vest and big legged pants, Just ordinarily dressed no coat on. No attention had been paid him, and the women on the car did not dream that their lives were in his hands, but when the test came he proved that he was a man, and the brute who so cowardly assaulted those two girls wil! always remember him, and if he has one lota of manhood in him he has more respect for the man who plunged the knife in him than he has for all those who sat cringing as he committed the cowardly as saults on those two girls. iion. WINCHESTER NOTES. We are glad to sav that our town is still alive. Rev. C. Gray preached two wonderful sermons for us Sun day. Our B. Y. P. U. is getting on fine. Sunday evening the lesson was taught by Deacon W. S. Darrell, Matt. 7. As we have not received our quarterlies, the president, J. M. Bat tles, appointed Mrs. T. B. Phillips to conduct the lesson for Snndiv At tion of the Episcopal Church which convenes every four years. The session will continue for a month. Mrs. A. D. Simington of Mobile, Ala., who has been here visiting relatives and friends returned home last week. Mrs. Eliza Sanders of 1309 Jack son sireet, who has been ill for the last three weeks is improving. Mrs. Mattie Stiles of Milledgevllle Ga., is in the city visili'iig her broin er, Bishop Phillips who has been ill but is rapidly convalescing. Mm iiiiles will spend some time with the Bishop and family. Mrs. Stiles has a large circle of friends here who will be delighted to learn that she is in the city. MOSAICS WILL DEDICATE. (Continued from page 1.) one of whom will be the state grand master by virtde of his office. This property was boughfr and the deeds made to the National Order of the Mosaic Templars of America. The national officers purpose to have the deeds framed and placed right at the entrance of the building so that all may see that the property belongs to the people and no individ ual or set of individuals. The Freewill Offering. In erecting this building the Mo saics have done what no fraternity in the world has done and that is complete a building without levy ing extra buildi'ng assessments on the people. At Paducah they levi ed a national temple tax of 20 cents per ' annum on each member. This tax has been accumulating slowly, j but it would have taken many years I for a small tax ilke that to amount to sufficient to erect the temple. On the other hand, the endowment funds have been piling up at lan for home Thursday last. They were j immense rate. The Insurance com- miitfcfoners of Arkansas recom mended that the safest investment for the endowment surplus would be City Items. Mrs. W. C. Shelton is back in the city, from a Ave weeks' stay, with friends in Chicago, 111. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas E. Work of 1532 14th Ave. North., was visited by the stork, Friday morn'ni. Ort 3rd, and left an 8-pound baby girl. The young lady hag been named Essie Jordan. ' 'Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Charles and Mrs. Martha Foster Jone3 of Pensa cola, Fla., who have been the guests of Mr. Foster Jones and Mrs. Eliza Jones during Convention week left the recipients of many social pleas ures while in the city. Mrs. Ross and daughter, Miss Fannie, iMrs. Owens, the wife of to put money into a national build the President of Central Mississippi ing. Hence last March the temple Baptist College and Mr. R. H. Ewing trustees arranged with the Endow of Natchez, Miss., after a pleasant tnent Board for money to complete visits among friends and relatives, the temple. ' Now the National accompanied by Mrs. R. H. Ewing Grand Master will start his let cam and children have returned to j paign to replace this money in the Natchez, Miss. 'endowment treasury and that will be Boosters. The young men who organized th "Booster Club" struck upon a scher.i that will do much toward the better nicnt of Nashville, if properly han dled. It is not a new move in tiiM city, but it is a commendable move. It is well that the young Negro men of Nashville realize th.it they owe something to their home; and that a part of the responsibility of pushing Nashville to the front rests upon them. We hope the new club will grow strong and live long. That the members will count themselves men, and not as charity seekers. That they will always feel that the ex penses of the club must be borne by the members of the club and not by donations from others. We hope they will be "Boosters" and not beg gars. The initial trip to Knoxville- Bhould receive the most hearty support of all. Every man should realize that the city's reputation is at stake. Every Negro who works for n Nash ville manufacturer or merchant should feel it his duty to boost that man's business. Negroes are pretty good boosters as a rule, but, they can he better boosters through on organ ized effort. Let's show Knoxville who we are. Let's tell the world about grand old Nashville and her opportunities. 1 V'Ji V V v jnr t t c UuJUJUo T71T TTfTTI By Special Arrangement with National Negro Doll Company the - J u t ; .. . 1 ! V .

Wells has- just returned from Battle Creek, Mich., where she went to take a course in Hydrothera py and Electrotherapy. Dr. Wells the same as wag employed at the Rock. City Sanitarium on the east side of the river and is practiced at the sanitarium conducted by the Seven Dav Aventists. It is what has been connected with the manage- is commonly known as the water and mum ot me nuDnaru Hospital since its opening, and is fully prepared for her work. She hopes to combine the use of Hydrotherapy and Eleclo therapy in her practice thls winter in the treatment of rhepmatism, gas trictis indigestion and all forms of nervous disorders. Dr. Wells will treat diseases women and children only. The new treatment duced at Meharry by electricity remedy, and is gaining in favor with the people as they under stand it. Aside from the medicinla curative powers of the remedy the people have learned to a degree the virtue in taking a good bath under ihnt svetem. There are many in this city who when the sanitarium of'vas in operation never used any oth Iit treatment. Dr. Wells' efforts to be Intro-: will be hailed with delight by the Dr. Wells is (people as a whole. a national freewill offering at the dedication. He will . have prepared a great Honor Roll and every lodge in the United States will he asked to contribute something in the free will offering Amounts from $1 tip will be accepted. The roll will be called and the name of each lodge recorded and this roll will be placed in the archives of the- Order to re main forever and be read by those who wil come in after generations and see what their fathers and moth ers accomplished. The exercises will close Friday night with a big banquet in the new auditorium where spreads will be laid for the delegates and visitors to the celebration. The Mosaic Templars was organ ized in 1882 by the present Na tional Scribe. J. E. Bush and the late C. W. Keats. During its exis tence over $.")0fl,000 has been paid to widows and orphans. This Order has never levied an extra tax upon its members to pay off any kind of obligation, and not a simile instance can bo cited dur ing thirty-two years, where the Or der has failed to meet promptly its just obligations to the people. In our Endowment department, the ninety-days waiver, which appear in most certificates, has never been taken advantage of, because the Or der has always had sufficient funds to meet its claims whenever proof of death is- made. Our Endowment department is national and has been inspected from time to time by vari ous Insurance commissioners. The Order has come out of each inspec tion with flying colors. As we grow older, instead of decreasing, our Endowment surplus is growing, as the following will show: A LESSON IN FIGURES.
