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.
We are glad to sav that our town

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

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

ized effort. Let's show Knoxville

made it possible for even) girl to
have a Negro Doll FREE. .You
can get a 12 inch Doll or you get a
36 inch Doll. It all depends on how
much you talk.
A 12 inch Negro will be given to
every girl who will secure
two yearly subscribers to the
Nashville Globe at $1.50 each
A 15 inch Negro Doll for four
yearly subscribers at 1.50 each
A 17 inch Negro Doll for five year
ly subscribers at 1.50 eacfi
An 18 inch Negro Doll for six year
ly subscribers at 1.50 each
A 20 inch Negro Doll for seven
yearly subscribers at 1.50 each
A 22 inch Negro Doll for eight
yearly subscribers at 1.50 each
A 26 inch Negro DoW for twelve
yearly subscribers at 1.50 each
A 30 inch Negro Doll for fourteen
yearly subscribers at 1.50 each
A 32 inch Negro Doll for eighteen
yearly subscribers at 1.50 each
A 36 inch Negro Doll for twenty
yearly subscribers at 1.50 each
You do not have to secure all annual subscribers. If you
can get enough subscribers at 6 months or 3 months to have
money equivalent to the amount a given number of annual sub
scribers would pay, you get the doll' just the same. For example:
Two annual subscribers at $1.50 each would amount to $3.00
Any girl who will secure a number of subscibers and collect $3.00
from them, will get a 12 inch doll.
This is the first time girls have had a chance to get a Negro
Doll free. It only requires a little work after school. This offer
will remain open until December 25th. Get busy girls, and get a
Negro Doll for Christmas. Call 'at the Globe office and get a sub
scription blank. Begin early so you will have time secure a 'Great
Big Be lUtifulDoll Free. If you live out of the city write a letter,
and the blanks will be mailed to you.

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
