Annual Sermon.
Fred Douglas Lodge, St.
Mary’s Temple and Home Sweet
Home Temple, of the order of
United Brethren of Friendship
and Sisters of Mysterious Ten,
turned out in full regalia to lis
ten to a very timely and interest
ing sermon by Dr. J. H. Mcgee.
> W. T. Scott was master of cere
monies. Dr. Magee stated that
the order now numb2rs 250,000
members both in this country
and the islands of the sea. He
gave timely advice to the race, to
elevate themselves by giving
closer attention to the three
books: ‘-The Bible, the spelling
book and the bank book.” Get
something; and the world is with
you; get nothing and you have it
alone '' Dr. Magee said, “Come
back here a hundred years from
now and find Ethiopia stretching
out her hands unto God, through
the medium of the uplifting in
fluences of today.
Rev. Dr. Fulton is the able
pastor of the New Hope Baptist
church where the services were
held at 3 o’clock p. m. last Sun
day.
Choose Your Company With Caution.

mers. Many girls who were
reared up with other girls, who
become vicious, profane ’ and
even horrid, think they should*
not withdraw from their former
associates because they came up
together and used to be play
mates, but you are forced to even
shake the dust from your feet
and bid your sister a farewell
adieu if she does not conform to
moral decency—this is not the
easiest thing to do but it is the
better thing.
There must be more class
about our people. When you
classify, that does not mean that
you are above so and so, uor that
you snub them, refuse to speak,
etc. But that you cannot aff »rd
to receive them on social equality
nor to entertain them as your
companions. Thus you become
a light, shining forth with great
brilliancy.

The case of W. T. Casey will not
come up at this ■’ term of court.
When the case is brought up, it
will no doubt attract much atteu
t>on. ...There are few people who
understand the cause
which led to the tragedy and only
view the case exteriorly on prima,
facie evidence, but the law guar,
autees a right of trial by an im
partial jury and makes much
allowance for the cause claimed
by the defendant. He has seven
children left, to whom he seems
very affectionate, and being un
prejudiced and viewing the case
with profund sagacity, we only
hope that the best thiug be done
and the accused be given ali> the
immunities etitled to him and
the advantages of all “overt
acts.’’ Vv - ’* • • r
And They use The Scissors but
Don't Give Credit.
The Cairo, III., Watchman, a
new paper, publishes our editor
ial verbatim on the ‘‘Evolution of
Lovejoy,” on its frontpage, tut
fails to credit same to evQn, “ex
change.” Why these fellows do
this, is strange to us indeed. We
are invariably glad to have our
sentiments voiced, butwoyld like
to have credit for our thought.
People look with disdain; at the
editor who aims to hoodwink
the people and use other’s opin
ion as ‘original.’ We always
credit others when we copy. Ed
itors call this stealing, Mr.
Watchman.

The "Little Rag."
As a gentle reminder for those
people who have the unmitigated
temerity to say because we don't
see fit to utilize these columns to
elaborate on their pet scheme or
club, that the “little rag is insig
nificant and does not amount to
much.’’ that it is our prerogative
to curtail or condense whatever
we feel disposed to. While we
cater to the public, we desire to
say that before a kick is register
ed. the kicker should at least,

tion in life. Once more; we wish
to please you. but, we draw the
line between ourselves and the
bulldozer. All of our readers are
uot interested in your particular
work, and, our advice to you is to
be a little more considerate
in your denunciations.
