It is indeed refreshing in these
days of intense hatred that some
iarts of the United Slates evince
for Negro soldiers to have a loyal
white friend to say a few kiml
words in their behalf. The follow
ing excerpt from the Columbus Dis
patch meets our unqualified approval
and gives us pleasurable pleasure.
. "About ten per cent, or sixty
thousand of the selected men in
the army are Negroes. They
are in practically all of the
camps, and are being drilled in
miany instances by ollicers of
their own color. They have
their own organizations; that is,
the colored men and white men
do not belong to the same com
panies or regiments. These col
ored troops seem to be getting
along very well.
But there are a lot of people
in, this country who seem to
know more about running an
army, or conducting a war, than
those who have made a life
study of it. These busy-bodies
are now trying to stir up trouble
in regard to the Negroes. They
are well-meaning, perhaps these
busy-bodies but they are imprac
ticable in most things.
One of the propositions is to
create a separate Negro division
to put all of the colored troops
into one great camp. Another
proposition is to break up the
regiments, and distribute the
companies among the white regi
" inputs. Both propositions appear
to be absurd to the war depart
ment, and to those who are giv
ing all of their thought to tne
winning of the war.
The Negroes will give a good
account of themselves when it
ciiliies to actual fighting. Thev are
fcond soldiers. They have cour- j
age anil end lira nee, about all that I
is necessary in lnakin'- a soldier, j
if we except discipline, and the
Negro is easily disciplined. He
obeys orders readily. So we
need have no fear about the ser
vice the colored troops will ren
der to this country when the
time comes. The real friends of
the Negro will let the war depart
ment run the army as it sees fit,
and not seek to make it any hard
er for either white or colored
HAPPINESS BY DETERMINATION.
The person who refuses to he
made unhappy by adverse things is
either wise beyond the human aver
age or most luckily constituted. The
misanthrope is apt, of course, to
nurse his melanrholy, and to feel su
perior to him that throws it off. But
the misanthrope Is not to be relied
upon. He exaggerates honestly;
but he exaggerates. (Since even he
is gregarious by instinct, regardless
of what his habit may be, he craves
spiritual companionship, and is ag
grieved if others sjso are not wretch
'Jtlsfonune is not partial at least
not more partial than good fortune.

or if they think that to he so, they
If some receive an unequal portion.
or t they think that to be so, they
have at least the religious and the
purely philosophical alternatives,
They may look upon their miseries
as iopportunity , in unbecoming gar-
metats, and advance to greater things I
through trial;' or they may reflect
upon the uselessness of protest, and
save their grief. Contrariwise, it is
open to everybody to flatter sorrow
by immersing himself in ft. For
some, a sauoerful is sufficient.
Introspection has nt least a dual
personality. It may lrool or it way
analyze. It may habitually look to
the inner woes, and people the soul
with a troon of shades; or it may
put hopes, disappointments and
qualities in soniothing like their nor
mal relations, and thus serve both as
a toner down of elation and a pallia
tive of grief. It is ditlii'iilt indeed,
it is impossible for the outsider to
know whether resistance to unhap
piness, therefore, is due to unappre-
ciation or to appreciation in its most
complete and intelligent form. Some
people are duck's backs. Others are
It is a human peculiarity to main
tain a faith in one's surpassing abili
ty to suffer. Each mortal admires
his own capacity for feeling;. No
flattery is more engaging than that
which pretends to recognize such ca
pacity. The lover talks, with a high
inspiration, about his sweetheart's
depth of soul; and she. who there
fore had never perceived fully her
own attribute, at once is convicted
of ridiculous modesty. Emotion
grants its most excellent crown to
! liim who experiences the most unut
terable sadness. Every person ad
mires the martyrs, and dies with
them deliciously at intervals.
Nevertheless, it is a fine thing to
be able to compel happiness. To
him who can turn resolutely away
from that which represents failure in
great aspirations, and face again with
cheer and hopefulness the east, much
has been given. His determination
bestows upon him any number of
rising suns. He may not so soon
wear a halo, but bis head itself will
rest with a greater security.
HISTORY OF THE THREE 1
Answering the call of mars, the
three cent purple stamp has come
forth to join the dance of the taxes.
Modest as the violet from which it
takes its color, it has been a wall
paper stamp for many years. With
Jacson's head on it, it was first
issued in I'.i02. In IMS, Jackson's
head was succeeded by Washington's,
but the color remained the same.
In 1S53, three cent stamps, then a
blue green color, would carry a half
ounce letter 3000 miles or less. In
IS.".;;, the element of distance was.
abolished, and three cents would car-'
ry a letter to any part of the United
States. In 1S73 the rate was reduc
ed to two cents and the three cent
stamp became only an occasional vis
itor. The first two cent stamp in
general use was a red brown color,
and bore Wasington's face.
HOW WE GOT OUR NEW STYLE
Gloom lurked In our quarters when
we saw the new trench overcoat on
parade, and we remembered that our
last year's now coat was too good
to cast aside. "Oh gloom:" Why
doth thou sentence us to the class of
out-of-dates we exclaimed. But joy
came to our rescue, and we remem
bered that our tailor could cut a
piece from the bottom of our old
coat and make a belt out of it. So
we hastened to our tailor and made
him smile to the tune of $1.73, and
we stepped forth with our overcoat
three inches shorter but fitting snug
around our waist, belted down and
in the height of fashion. Oh joy!

ROGER WILLIAMS UNIVERSITY
STUDENTS AND FACULTY
SHOW THEIR PATRIOTISM TO
..AMERICA IN TANGIBLE WAY.
By Mack T. Williams.
Today America stands looking over
her marshalled forces, harnessed
powers and battle array, for by in
exorable force of events, it has been
drawn thither, much against its will,
into the greatest of all wars.
That the students of Roger Wil
liams realize that into a sea ot car
nage their country is, and that 'tis
not a time to discuss the feasibility
of martial activities, hut a. moment
when "Columbia Calls" for co-operation,
men, conservation and sacri
fice, in all things conducive to .life,
was evident when a few days ago,
Mr. Arch Trawick. a prominent busi
ness man of Nashville, accompanied
bv Judge J. C. Napier and Prof. Car
ruthers of Fisk University, visited
our school in interest of the food
Having received a hearty welcome
by President Townsend, (who is a
staunch advocate and supporter of
any movement, local or national, for
the good of the people), Mr. Tra
wick and company easily, without

the signed pledge' of every student

they sacrifice the use of some things,
vitally needed by the government,
but in all things care would be tak

The trumpet shrill, was again
heard by the President and faculty

six million men in prison camps be
reft of homes and families, pleading
for the necessities of life for the
coming winter's cold, not to say the
least of the silent cry coming from
the realms of the heroic dead, ask
ing that a mite be given to protect
their loved ones and homes; to de
stroy despotism and autocracy, and
to establish a pure democracy.
Tho message brought by Mr. To
bias who came in interest of the stu
dents friendship war fund, a mes
sage that angels fain would give an
attentive ear, was not relegated to
a consideration in the future, but
immediately the school wag divided
into divisions, with a captain of eacii
division. The result was that the
students of Roger Williams, most
of whom are self-supporting in the
main, poor, and many beneficiaries,
together with the Faculty gave over
$100.00 to the fund that American

MILK AND ICE FUND COMMITTEE
Women Told of the Suffering of Poor
Children by Dr. Hibbett, Head of
Health Department Mra.
An appeal which struck a respon
sive cord in the hearts of many of tho
prominent women of Nashville was
answered on Tuesday afternoon, when
a -large number gathered in the lec
ture room at the Carnegie Library
to listen to Or. tlibbett, head of the
Health Department of the City of
Nashville, tell of the need and suffer
ing of the babies iu the poor families
The meeting was called to order
by Mrs. Elizabeth Ross Haynes, as
tempoiary chairman. Prayer was of
fered by Dr. McDowell, pastor of the
First Baptist Church, Eighth avenue,
North. Dr. Hibbett was introduced
by Mrs. Haynes and in well chosen
words told of the conditions which
made it necessary for the appeal for
funds in order that babies born in
poor families might have nourish
ment. He stated that formerly the
city had appropriated between two
and three thousand dollars for this
fund, while this year it had appropri
ated only, $980. In explaining the
modus operandi of this fund Dr. Hib
bett had it distinctly understood that
there was no color line drawn bu that
any mother and baby needing nour
ishment who made application for the
same was helped, and in many cases
the statistical record kept at the
Board of Health OJIlce showed that
in some months the colored babies
were supplied more milk than chil
dren of other races, although the pro
portion ot children of other races to
colored children was two to one. He
stated emphatically that conditions
arising from the war made it abso
lutely necessary that the babies of the
races be safeguarded.
Mrs. Rosenfeld and Mrs. Schwartz
were present and outlined plans for
soliciting for the funds.
At tho conclusion of the discussion
it was decided that in order to do the
work an organization should be
formed. Upon motion by Mrs. J. C.
Napier, seconded by Mrs. Brumfield,
Mrs. Elizabeth Ross Hayns, the
temporary chairman was elected per
manent chairman of the Milk and Ice
Fund Sub-Committee. It. was motioned
and seconded that the chairman be
allow ed to name her committee. The
committee named was as follows:
Mrs. Elizabeth Ross Haynes, chair
man; Mrs. Cora Jordan White, secre
tary; Mrs. A. "N. Johnson, treasurer;
Miss Viola Flags, Mrs. F. E. Dawson,
Miss Marion M. Hadley, Mrs. W. J.
Hale, Mrs. Lula Crosthwait, Mrs.
Julia Williams, Mrs. J. C. Napier.
The payment of $1 will make any
individual an annual member of the
Milk and Ice Fund Commission. All
churches, societies and clubs are
asked to contribute to this worthy
cause. Send your subscriptions to
Mrs. A. N. Johnson, treasurer.
EDITOR MTTXER IN INDIA
NAPOLIS. Mr. W. L. Miller, Editor of the
Nashville Globe left the city Thurs
day for Indianapolis, Ind. While in
in the northern city, Mr. Miller will
be the guest of his son, Flournoy Mil
ler, a leading actor. The companies
conducted by Flournoy Miller do not
come further south than Cincinnati,
hence Mr. Miller, who is a typical
southerner and seldom leaves south
ern territory has never had the
pleasure of seeing his son perform.
It has been the promise of tho son
that when he was booked far enough
south for his father to reach him,
he would send for him, so Saturday
morning a wire came to Mr. Miller
stating that the company was booked
for Indianapolis at the Keith House
and Mr. Miller went up to see him.
We hope for him a pleasant vacation.
