distinguished PARTY ON
Tuokegee, Ala.—Within the last two
or three years Dr. Booker T. Wash
ington has made quite a number of ex
tended trips through various parts of
Macon County, Ala., for the purpose
of seeing for himself just what the
colored people are doing and under
what conditions they are doing It It
\ was just such a trip as this that Dr.
Washington made through the south
western portion of the county on Sun
day, recently. He was accompanied by
Judge R. H. Terrell and Hon. Whit
field McKinley, both of Washington,
D. C.; Lord Eustace Percy of the Brit
ish Embassy of Wahtngton; Mr. W.
T. B. Williams, agent for the Anna
Jeanes fund and Slater fund; Dr.
Thomas J. Jones of the United States
Census bureau, and Mr. George L.
Knox, editor of the Indianapolis Free
man, as well as quite a number of the
teachers and friends from Tuskegee.
The first stop was made at the resi
dence of Mr. Lott Ellington, a success
ful farmer, bis house, yard and garden
were ail Inspected and found to be
in almost perfect condition.
The Dext stop was at Fort Hull,
where much to the surprise as well as
to t! e delight of some of the members
of the party, as it was generally un
derstood that breakfast would be
served at another place. Mr. Morgan
| Russell, a successful white farmer In
: that section, had prepared quite an
'elaborate breakfast: after eating the
party then went to the little church,
which was only a few paces from the
| tables where a very short meeting was
I held.
Leaving here the next stop was ML
Andrews community; however. It
might be well to mention the fact
that Just before reaching this com
munity a mounted committee met the
party, and one of the most unique
scenes of the whole trip were the four
members of the committee who were
on oxen which were saddled and brid-1
led. !n the Mt. Andrews Community
church was an excellent exhibit of the
Farmers' Improvement club. The ob
ject of these clubs, which are scat-j
tered throughout the various communf-1
ties, is to decide how they can meet
the conditions that would naturally
confront one living In tjle country.
This ^exhibit consisted of vegetables,
fruit, and several kinds of meats all
crown on tbelr land. The majority of
the homes occupied by these people
were all whitewashed and painted.
In the course of bis remarks here
Dr. Washington said that people could
not go through a community without
being encouraged. "Here in Macon
coun'y you have good land that will
grow abundant cropa. You have a
good citizenship here and there Is
every opportunity for you to make this
a little heaven right down here on
earth. Therefore get some land and
cultivate It ”
The party then proceeded to Lib
erty Hill, where a brief stop was made.
It might be well to mention that the
people in this community own be
tween twelve and fifteen thousand
acres of land After one or two
speeches the members of the party
proceeded to ML Pisgah They were
met by a large crowd, headed by the
Farmers' Improvement club. In the
scboolbouse the visitors found alL
kinds of vegetables and sewing, and"
were informed that the colored peo
ple owned over two thousand acres
of land and quite a large herd of live
stock. Dr. Washington urged the peo
ple to get hold of land and keep it, to
do better farming, and grow something
else besides cotton. He also made ref
erence to what is known 13 "Draw Sat
Every night during the winter
months a special train, popularly
called the "Raplde des Fleurs"—the
cut flower limited express—of ten
cars, leaves Toulon for Paris over the
line of the Paris, Lyons and Mediter
ranean railway, carrying cut flowers
in baskets and cardboard boxes from
all stations on the line from Nice to
Toulon to the Parts markets. Certain
cars are switched off to Frankfort,
Berlin and Munich; others continue
to Brussels and others to Calais,
where their perishable freight Is
rushed to the markets of London
and Manchester.
Certain shipments reach St. Peters
burg and Vienna, and the facilities
thus offered the flower growers of
southern France are unique in the
transportation world. A special train

such things as corn, peas, and almost
every other kind of vegetable*. He
laid special stress upon the Importance
of making the home more comfortable.
The party then set for Hardaway
and found about three thousand peo
pie waiting. At this place was found
one of the neatest and most up-to-da'e
school houses In : county. After a
number of plantation melodies had
been sung Dr. Washington and Judge
Terrell made short addresses, both
complimenting the people upon their
beautiful church and schonlhouse. and
also their farms and whitewashed
The next stop was at Sambo where
again Dr. Washington and Judge Ter
rell spoke. Any one who had the good
fortune of going on this trip would
feel safe In saying that here he found
without a doubt the best farms and
school In the entire county This
community had what is known as a
model school, consisting of a bedroom,
dining room, kitchen, and a very neat
school room. The colored people of
the community own ;*bout eight hun
dreJ acres of land.
Lambo was the farthest point on the
trfp and here the return home was
begun. However, before reaching
home stops were made at the follow
ing places, where short speeches were
delivered: Egypt, Sweet Gum, Has
sell Plantation and St. Mark
This was the longest trip of Its kind
ever taken by Dr. Washington and tn
more ways than one very interesting,
and it Is expected that It will have
great effect on all who had the pleas
ure of hearing him.
Most women who Indulge freely in
the use of cheap perfumes do not
know or what they are compounded
The principal ingredient of low-priced
perfumes Is musk, animal musk, which
Is obtained from several creatures.
The muskrat Is probably the best
known of these, and a few decades
ago the wives and sweethearts of
men who tet traps around ditches and
ponds In the countryside carried
proudly the baits of musk obtained
from ibis source As an article of
commerce the musk supplied by sev
ers! varieties of civet oats Is ^proba

Is strong and sweet. The strength
Is the particularly noticeable f-atur*
and Is the reason why It Is the foun
dation of the perfumes. In the small
mammal house at the zoological gar
decs are two sizes of civets, and any
one with an Investigating turn of
mind may stand near the cages and
catch the musky odor.
The musk is used In the cheap per
fumes. as only a little Is needed to
give a most lasting odor to an ounce
of perfumery, but the musk Itself is
not cheap, and It Is one of the duties
of the attendants of the nuromtl
bouse to collect It. It Is then sold j
through regular channels and Is one
of the sources of revenue to the zoo,
although a small one—Philadelphia
