MEMBER NATIONAL NEGRO PRESS ASSOCIATION. Get busy boys. Every Negro in the Eighth Ward should support William C. Hueston. The evil that men do lives after them. Take notice and govern your selves accordingly. Possibly no writer has grasped the political situation as concisely and ac curately as has our brilliant, corres pondent Chas. A. Starks. Read what he says this week. And dispute it if you. can. On Monday of this week there were seven Colored teachers absent from work' on account of illness. There are no substitutes for the Colored schools and the -work is embarrassed in this way almost daily. It should not require any intricate organization of political machinery to elect Hueston from the Eighth ward. Every black voter who lays any claim to decency and race loyalty should vote for him without being "seen" by the ward heelers. White Republican voters of the Eighth ward are also on trial. We shall be able to see whether or not they will stand hitched to the doctrines of Lincoln. Grant, Garfield and JIc Klnley. If they show the yellow streak they cannot place the blame upon the Negro voters. The Editor was painea to hear of the death of his life long friend, Prof. Herbert Beach of Chilllcothe, Mo., last Monday. Prof. Beach was one of the race's most aggressive and accomplish ed young men and his death will be a distinct loss to the community in which he lived. The Sun extends to the bereaved family its deepest sym pathy. THAT COMMUNITY SPIRIT. There is in this town a growing spirit to broaden as well as intensify the work of community interests. It is both Right and Beautiful. It is the thing that will bring us the most en durable Good. About five years ago the Y. M. C. A. movement sprung in to bigness and swept us off our feet with its magnitudinal success. This taught us four things with consider able force. First, that we have re sources, Second That we are respon sive. Third, that wo have competent workers. Fourth, That we can com mand the cooperative attention of the other race with the undoubted things that go to make a better community tone for us and therefore, a Greater Kansas City for all. Since then we have noticed Increased activities along the same lino of uplift, all succeeding more or less and giving confidence and assurance ot bigger and better things as we go. Then, too, we have not been slow in meeting the National ellgencles tho World War has brought about. As a community we have shown a reasonable patriotic spirit and we have sought placo and oppor tunity without waiting on the ceorcion of the Draft. Our contribution to the Liberty Loan does us credit; our conduct to wards the Red Cross was beautiful; our Negro Hospital move was a Revel ation in specific race effort and now comes the Aldermanlo campaign with its currents and cross currents, testing whether we are strong enough to over come tho false barriers of petty Jeal ousies and put Kansas City in with those Negro centers we have already named. I, for one, believe it can be done. Starks. TO THE, WISE MAN.

But safety first: use the telephone. That there is one Ad appears in the Sunday Star that causes a lot of fun to be poked at tho Colored race. That Dr. Theodore Smith's beauti ful Drug store did the biggest business in its history last Sunday. Well ad vertising pays, especially when adver tisers deliver the goods. -That Prof. Dawley, who teaches a bright class of boys In Allen Chapel, Sunday school, was explaining to them the story of Dives, the rich man and Lazarus, the poor man; and when he had finished a very graphic description ho said to them, "Now boys which would rather be, the rich bad Dives or the poor and pious Lazarus?" One bright young chap after studying for a moment, spoke up and said, "I tell you Prof. I believe I would rather be Dives while I am alive and then be Lazarus after I am dead. That an old colored man named Zenohad a savings account in a South ern bank. One day the bank failed and Zeno was very much perturbed though he didn't know it by that name. He hung around the bank, just to be near his money, and when the re ceiver asked him why, he answered: "Kas Ah's got some money In dat 'ar bank an Ah wants t' git it." "Well," replied the receiver, 'don't you know that the bank has to be thoroughly examined before any of the depositors can get their money? Banks have failed before. This isn't the first time a bank has busted.' "Shore, Ah knows dat; Ah's heard tell o' banks bustin' afore dls, but dis heah am de fuhrst time dat a bank evah busted right squah-in mah face." Finally the receiver announced that the depositors would be paid in full in alphabetical order. Unfortunately, a mistake had been made in figuring and when they got down to the W's the money gave out and Zeno lost his savings. However, he wasn't discouraged, i After a couple of months he had some more money saved up. He took it to another bank, where he was known, and told the cashier he wanted to open a savings account. "All right, Zeno," said the cashier warmly, 'we will be glad to open an account for you." "Zeno nothln', drawled the old man quickly, 'mah name ain't Zeno no moh, mad name's Aaron.' " ' When in need of the you expect one who will respond quiet, sober and dignified manner. One who will relieve you of the cares and worry' that you usually undergo in time of bereavement.
