To The Gazette:—
Please allow me space to say
we the First Baptist church have
called a pastor Rev W P. Wash
ing, of Decatur, 111., which was
carried by the majority, the church
is well pleased with their calling
and feeling that they have not
made any mistake in calling this
noble man, feeling that he is one
of God’s chosen messengers from
on high. He has filled our church
with the fire of the Holy Ghost
and also increased our finance and
he has planned to have a rally the
4th Sunday in January. All are
invited to help us.

race lovers find excuses in giving
their yvoik to others claiming they
are too high priced or the work is
inferior to others yvhen at the

they refuse to let do theirs are i o
itig work for Negroes who do not
pose as Race leaders, and too,
th> se sail e race papers are doing
job yvork for some of best busi
ness firms and individuals of the
white race The papers are great
so long as they boo^t this class of
individuals for naught and let him
hrlp the fellow who does not need
his financial assistance. There
seems too much racial jealousy
and envy among the majority
of our great leaders and that ae
connts for slow progress along
race enterprises.
Therefore \vc have taken the
matter under careful advisement
and have concluded to place a
small charge on all matter except
purely news All Associational,
Conventional matter we expect
the officers of the Bod'cs to take
care of in a more svstematic way
hereafterat quarterly and annual
meeting. Our eXperieuce at the
meetings in the past forces us to
make this request.
No one who believes in a just
compensention for honest work
will object to this requirement.

Salt Make* Sea Blue.
Though generally appearing blue
in clear weather, the ocean varies
grently In color. In stormy weather
It looks green or even black. The
blue of the sea Is not, as generally
supposed, due to reflection from the
sky, but to salt In the water. That
Is why the Mediterranean, which Is
very salty, appears exceedingly blue.
Love and Duty In Actual Life.
A thousand wheels of labor are
turned by dear nfTectlons, and kept In
motion by self-sacrificing endurance;
and the crowds that pour ’orth In the
morning and return at nlgnt are dally
processions of love a id duty.—
