REPLY TO B. II. JANUARY.
Nashville Negro Boosters have a
leputation of fair dealing to sustain.
Last year their Christmas charity
lund in money, clothing, luel and
provision contributed by ImiUi while
i.nil colored citizens to Hie Negro
Booster Club, as a medium through
which the good people contributing
desired to respond to the Boosters'
appeal, and to aid the poor colored
people of Nashville. Over a thous
and persons were supplied from the
bountiful collection made hy the club,
several -colored societies engaged in
charitable work were assisted by the
Boosters at that time. The Boostersi
Club is not a charity organization,
but at the time mentioned Its mem
Ixrs saw an opportunity to do some
very much needed work that the col
ored charitable societies were not
nble or prepared to do. How well
the Boosters kept faith with the gen
erous donors, as well as the recipi
ents is well known.
The Boosters at that time relied
entirely upon their own efforts and
resources in getting up mater'al to
aid tlie poor and needy. This year
the club made a late start to again
engage in the work of relief, nnd de
cided to get out a Booster Edition
und designated Sunday, Dec 24th, tu
Booster paer day. The proceeds of
which it was hoped would be buI
iicient to meet expenses and give
substantial aid to the poor, but ahu

Whereas God in his all-wise justice
towards men has seen fit to sond the
Uea'h Angel into our midst, and take
from us, our assistant pastor and
Superintendent of our Sunday school,
Rev. T. J. Lewis, but knowing that
God always does what is right and
; best, and that he gives us a steward
ship, and so mach time to take care
of our stewardship, and then takes
' us to him, be it
i Resolved, that we, the Galeda Class
and North Nashville Sewing Circle ot
the Mt. Olive Baptist Church, bow our
j heads in humble submission to the
will of God, praying ihat he will give
us strength to endure whatever
i comes and that he iu his all-wise prov
iMeuee will give us another man who
i!l have the work of the church at
, heart the same as Brother Lewis.

NO. 5 FROAI THE MT. OLIVE
BAPTIST SUNDAY SCHOOL.
W7e the officers and members of the
Mt. Olive Baptist Sunday school, with
becoming reverence bow in humble
submission to the wdll of the all-wise
Creator, since he has seen fit to take
from our midst our beloved Superin
tendent a man who was willing at nil
times to do what he could towards
helping fallen humanity.
He was always ready to stamp his
approval and support to any move
ment which he believed would con
tribute to the moral, social and relig
ious growth and development of his
people. He had great faith in the
possibility of the young people as
could be seen while he was acting
superintendent of this school. He
was a man who seemingly felt the
need of every department of the
church work, and gave his support
and encouragement to the depart
ments of the church.
Rev. Lewis was a man of true
worth, sterling qualities, unselfish in
his dealing with every body whom he
came in contact with. He believed
in giving honor to whom' honor is due.
He was agreeable, possessed an ami
able disposition and was willing to
lend a hand w-ith any woA for the
Master's cause. He urged the necessity-
of the Christians standing up
right, contending for the faith that
was once delivered to the saints.
Here faith reveals to mortal eyes
A brighter world beyond the skies,
Here shines the light which guides
From earth to realms of endless day.
Resolved that tlie Alt. Olive Sunday
school always hold dear in memory
