He must-get busy and let the people know what he can do. Rev. Allen, presiding elder of the A. M. E. church was in Douglas on Sunday, March 23rd, and held his quarterly meeting.

Every body enjoyed the discourse and went away happy. The Colored citizens of Douglas gave a delightful entertainment for the returned soldiers. The welcome address was delivered by Chaplain Berry of the Tenth Cavalry and Lieu tenant Penn, who has recently re turned from over seas, responded in a happy vein. He told us of many things that happened over there. Ser geants Bird and Wright, also from over seas, made interesting and in telligent talks. A delectable lunch was served and enjoyed by all. The •remainder of the evening was spent in dancing, music for the occasion being furnished by the Colored-Jazz band. Hon. J. C. Scott, grand patron of the O. E. S., for Texas and Jurisdic tion was a visitor in Douglas the past week. On March 29th a banquet was given in honor of this distinguished visitor and all the appetizing viands of the season were served. Pictures of all heroines of ancient times were shown, aiso a number of patriotic pic tures. This was one of the most not able affairs ever staged in Douglas and will not be forgotten soon.
