might have headed this column Some Pointers Pointed Paragraphs or ome other equally catchy caption and made myself less liable to criticism Suggesfnff like criticising may be done without thought In some cases like that of Clbbura iu the Dunoiad it may be done without brain In this Case however I purpose modestly but I believe all suggestions whether thoughtless or brainless are modestly offeredthen let me seenow I have It There are many things wrong In this Cosmos of ours and without apol ogy or further explanation I propose not to set all things right in a jiffy aa you no doubt have anticipated but to offer a remedy for one of the evils It has occurred to me that a good number of Negro journals could with much profit to their readers give con siderable space to what is known as the magazine feature A goodarticle on a live topic by a competent writer would mean a good deal more for our peoples uplift than so much gossipy copy Iknow the demand for the latter is heavy but then the public in this case should be given a little of what it wants and more of what it needs I am glad to note that the tendency of some of our papers is in this direction The appearance of an article of weight by some of our men or women whose competency Is unquestioned is by no means the casting of pearl before swine 1 read with much pleasure a nicely written tribute to the late Senator Hoar by Mr A 8 White to the Evening Post some eight or ten weeks since With equal pleasure I read the foreign letters of Dr C B Fairish in the American Baptist The Primary Function of Poetry is the subject of an interesting article by Mr James E French Cinoinati which appeared in the Nation New York and which has been commented on by many of the literari of the East The Literary Di gest of Oct 15 reprints an article of Prof W Eo Du Sols All of these gen tlemen are colored men and are cited simply as instances Cannot such men be induced to furnish articles more fre quently to Our own journals It is needles for me to describe the kind of article which I have in mind They areby no means the mere past time of the leisurely but article educa tive thbt shall lift the youth and the grownups too above their grievances for a spell Let us try this for a bit I know of a large number of Negro boys and girls and not a few adults who will call you blessed The delight and inspiration accruing from such a journalistic front cannot be measured Let some of those gentlemen who have really succeeded in their calling tell us bow they done so Let some successful artisan tell ua his story Such stories grow sweeter as they grow older J t is this kind of literature that some one calls bucks for all time Such a course strikes me as being an excellent one as a meant of developing race pride among our young folks The gap between the Nergo youth and the presidency is BO wide that it serves rather to discourage than to inspire Let us have something nearer our grasp Now that tbe election Is over the nigger question burled too deep for resurrection it is an opportune time for tbe beginning of a reform among our own journals I feel assured in saying that never again will our editors be called on to defend tbe Negro as they have bad to do in the recent campaign If the Democratic party IB ever reor ganized it will doubtless be controlled by the highminded whites of the South This class of men has always been In the majority in their section and I believe this class has always been friendly to the Negro but has been forced into silence by the blatant element thajttias controlled the elec tioua ThlsX

appreciative audience indeed we must admit he preached it was said bv some that it was the best they have heard him preach by others it was the second best but if we are to pass on it we will say it Is hard to surpass iu any period of bis ministerial life Rev P S Majors who is always a welcome guest of ids hearers was equal to the task assigned him he had his subject and two other brothers to

twentyfive years and its Quarto Centennial has been cel ebrated in a quiet way during the week and will close with a banquet in honor of Dr C L Puree who has been President of the Institu tion for the past ten years Twenty j five years service in the uplift evangelizing and education of a race is a short time but it has shown a remarkable and wonderful influence for good upon the denomination which has conceived and prosecuted the work under unfavorable cir cumstances It was planned by men only a few of whom could be considered as even possessing a rudimentary education but it has been carried on by others of greater ability and experience until its is recognized by wtriodcnominution In and out of th I state Then not a single church iin Kentucky had for its pastor a min ister who had taken a course of any 1 kind but today the best churches iin our state are pastored by college and in many cases by theologit1 graduates and the number is increasing The work being done by the representatives of State Univer sity in this and other states is prov ing the value of the institution and it is growing steadily in public fa vor The names of Marrs Simmons Garnett and Purce who have been the leaders in the work will be al ways remembered with honor and k thke University because each in his way and in his time has contributed tits 0 growth and success When th Institution opened there were a very few honorary titles worn by Baptists in this country and it be came the pioneer in the work ofi honoringeducation piety culture and worth in the denomination andI in its list of men thus honored are many of the most prominent an most influential representatives ofI I i the race not one of whom has brought discredit upon the Institu tion Thousands of young men and women have been blessed by I being students who have not finish ed in any department but have gathered inspiration from study and contact there and are doing a good work in many avenues of life I UniversitIcan look back over a history that should give encouragement to every friend to go forward THE passing away of Col W C P Breckinridge recalls to mind a 4 forgottern t namely that he was one of the first of the leaders in this state to advocate the admission of Negro testi mony in courts just after the close V of the civil war He was farsighted Jfandsaw that it was necessary as a matter of justice to both white and t art dent advocate n r it was unpopular knowing that iin time it would become a law It be w d came an issue when he was a candidate for Commonwealth Attorney in his district and was usedagainst him with such effect that it com passed his defeat but he did not give up the contest and in a few short years he saw the measure become a law and Negroes have since testified in the courts of Kentucky BrecklnIridgea statesman with broad and liberal views and In his death the Com monwealth has lost one of its most eminent and distinguished citizens In the discussion of the race problem recently one of the leading Southern journals acknowledge that the problem could only be solved by the leaders of both cocas reaching a mutualunderstanding and directing their efforts in harmony with a com mon purpose This seems to be the only rational way of treating the question and the sooner this is realized the sooner will goodresults follow To our mind there are But few in either race that expect one sided efforts to satisfactorilly adjust conditions as they should be adjusted and the suggestion for a conference of leaders of both races with that end in view is both fitting and appropriate Such a would bring the better elements of bothraces in closer contact andmu tal plans could be arranged and prosecuted in a most satisfactory way What is most needed is a better understanding of the situatio- and with that accomplished decided change for the better is in view As much as we would like to see every race leader recognized who took an active part in the campaign or contributed materially to the re election of President Roosevelt but that is an impossibility and we nust to a large extent content ourselves with the great benefits that shouldcome to the race Certainly nothing in recent years has meant rimee will prove that the administration onlylessennation but will bring a better feel ing in the South So insteadof a clamor for individual recognition among race leaders for appoint ments under the administration much of that energy could be prof itably spent in an effort to haimon ize imaginary differences both iin and out of the race with the view of improving present conditions lamentaIble ADVANCED NORMAL COURSE INTRODUCE AT TUSKE GEE INSTITUTE foeteachers of the Common Branches and teachers of Manual Training the Trades and

weal or woe but be the cause ever so remote it is never adverse when guided by the infinite I I theIJJ Fourth Street Baptist School find ourselves confronting one of the most eventful periods in the history of our existence Today we stand with aching hearts and tear stained cheeks in the center of- the parting of ways Between us and our beloved pastor Rev S E Smith DD who came to us about twelve years ago a stranger in the strictest sense ofthe term But the twelve years of incessant labor has proved him to be a man of God I abreast of the times a Prince off I Parliamentarians a fearless and uncompromising defender of his race his church with his manly courage and rare ability he has proved himself second to none in state By his great fatherly love he has with his magic power of the gospel suasion snatched from the fertile fields of sin the unsuspecting youths and transplanted them in the great and glorious field of GodJ destined to bear a thousand fold of golden grain that when he shall have been long asleep the angels shall garner into the store house on high therefore be it Resolved That Fourth Street Baptist Sunday School will in loss of Dr Smith sustain the greatest loss she has sustained in all the years of her existence and be it furtherResolved That we shall continue- to love and revere him and also bespeak for him a bright future wherever his lot may be cast and be it furtherResolved That these resolutions- be published in the American Baptist and a copy be given to Rev S E Smith D D in token of our unf igned love for him and his family Nannie Locke Supt John

DECEMBER II CAPTIVITY OF THE TEN TRIBES 2 Kings 176 iS Motto TctThe face of the Lord is against them that do evil It i Peter 312 The lesson is a warning to na tions as such For God deals with nations as units and takes vengeance upon them for national sins in this kingdom There were good men of Israel among them great prophets But their goodness only saved them as individuals God says speaking thrrugh the mouth of Ezekiel in regard to corrupt cities which he had resolved to pun ish though these three men Noah Daniel and Job they should deli er but their own souls by their righteousness saith the Lord God1 Andanother great lesson is that God punishes with special severity nations which have been greatly blessed They sinU against the the greater light and their guilt is therefore aggravated Again this was Gods chosen people dear to him for their fathers sake If he did not spare them when the cup of their iniquity was full still less can any other nation hope to escape with impunity As it is our State governments which have the im mediate control over us it is of them we must think when studying Gods dealings with Israel If we are careless and indifferent to their sins willing for example they should make justice a farce by allowing murderers to escape the gallowsfor the blood it defiileth the land and the land cannot be- clean34 of the blood that is shed Hfcrtftri7biril5y the blood of him that shed itNum3533 or that they should destroy the very foundation I of society byjj easy divorce V laws we may be sure our sins will It find you out and we too shall be rightly involved in the punishment l sure to come soon or late from the the hand of a righteous God IIhI the ninth year of Hoshae the king of Assyria took Samaria Hoshea had rebelled trusting to the help of Egypt The seige of Sama maria lasted three years At the beginning Shalmanesar was king of Assyria but he died during the progress of the seige and was suc ceeded by Sargon On a tablet discovered in Nineveh is Cargons own account of his victory He says I beseiged the city of Samaria and took it I carried off 27280 citizens These were the captives from the city itself the entire num ber carried off were much greater As usuai there is a difference ot opinion among the commentators in regard to the places here named as those to which the ten tribes were carried Such is the shameful ending ot Ur kingdom of Israel Thus God wiped it out of existence never again to be restored The ten tribes as tribes disappear forever 2 Individuals among them made their way back to Palestine probably in + large numbers when Judah returned from the Babylonishcaptivity t But they were mingled with Judah and had their tribal division lost The sacred historian goes on to sum up the causes of their final overthrow when at last Gods long 1 suffering patience came to an end Tic children of Israel had sin ncd against the Lord their God A iytitfi j had brought the11l1lp out o- 4V qei land 01 JjpITheir redemp lion from Egyptian bondage is of ten mentioned as adding to their MiguilC in forgetting God The greatsc jf the blessing received the more terrible the guilt ot disobeying God II IAnd walked in the statutes of IIntheathen whom the Lord hadcast tuI Irolll before tile children of Is- raelGod had commanded them II again and again not to do this thin- gkcyx83DeUt i24C But j lit i fJ with an ingratitude and a lack of sense which would be amazing were it not so common they the con querors actually adopted the relig ions of their slaves and served the gods which had not been able to protect their own people It isI hard to say which is the greatest the depravity or the folly of unre- generateI human nature By statutes of the kings of Israel is meant the worship of the golden calves God was greatly displeased by the efforts of Jeroboam and his succes sors to improve on the old worship And the children of Israel did secretly The Cambridge Bible tells us this means in the Hebrew they decked out their worship The churches would do well to take warning and to refuse all innova tions with which many in this day are decking out the simplicity of Baptist worship The trouble is in regard to all such things that tha innovators are bustling and persistent and the others submissive and cowardly and do not resist as they ought to do but content themselves with growling Prom tIe tower of the watchmen to the enccdcjThe towers of the watchmen were always in the most retired and lonely places Hence this is a strong and graphic phrase showing how general and widespread the defection And they set thtmllp images andDroves Groves mean the wooden pillars in honor of the goddess Asherah And thus they worship the gods and used the cities of the heathen who had been cast out before them And wrought wicked thing to provoke the Lord to allgerIfe- ver God would have shown him self a complaisant easy going universal Father instead of the Almigety Sovereign who will by no means clear the guilty it would have been to these his chosen people But on the other hand he held them to a stricter account and pun ished them more severely for their sins than he did the other nations The Assyrians or tbeEgytians could prosper worspipping idols but Is rael could not U They served idosThe word translated idols is expressive of the greatest contempt The Bible knows nothing of modern liberal ity so called Gods covenant with Israel as a nation walt based upon the one condition of worshipping him alone He punished individuals for breaking the other commandments but so long as all of the people worshipped him alone in exact accordance with the direc tions he had given so long they would continue as a nation Yet the Lord testified against Is raclPropnet alter prophet with power to work great miracles in proof of the divine truth of his message was sent among them God was patient and long suffer ing But every unheeded warning aided to their guilt This had always been a stiffnecked obstinate people as all of their leaders and teachers from Moses down had complained The figure is taken from oxen who hold their necks set and firm in the way they deter mine to go The catalogue of their sins is along and dark one They more than deserve the punishment which came upon them There was nothing they could do to move the Lord to anger against them which they had not dene Their sins oj omission and commission form a black catalogue I They rejected his statutes and his covenant that he made with their hersThe covenant that he should be their God and they should be his people They wished to violate their part of the contract yet hoping God was such a weak ling he could not or would not ful fill his threats II And they followed vanityand became vain The sacred writers give idolatry a vane ty of names which denQte emptiness and nothingness Idols were weak and powerless and by worshipping them the Israelites had made them relves so- tcAnd worshipped all the host of heaven ttTheworsbip of theASsy rians This worship had been for bidden in Deut 419 173 And ij i s made then molten images even two calves1 Again andagam God shows his great displeasure with r creboams attempt to adorn his worship and make it attractive to human nature And he is a changeless God U They caused their sons awltheir daughters to pass through the fire Human sacrifices were usual among the heathen It was in the worship of Molock the Israelites burned their children Divina tions and enchantments were the stately heathen form ofwhich the contemptible modern fortune telling and spiritrapping are the successors How professing Chris tians can meddle with these things so emphatically condemned in the Bible is a mystery Sot themselves to do evil Gave themselves wholly up to it I What wonder the end ofall is Therefore tht Lord was very angry I with Israel and removed them out of his sightThat is as a nation This whole reckoning is not of their private vices of which the landwas fullas we learn from the prophets but of their national sins the viola tion of the condition upon which their nations life depended Let us take warning from this fearlul indictment and see to it that we do our full duty as a citizen in making our State governments what they should be to be well pleasing in Gods sight Headache Can be Cured with Dr Miles Anti Pain Pills If your nerves are
