THE PASSING THRONG. Mrs. Susie Revels Cayton is now basking in the warm sunshine of Los Angeles, Cal ifornia. She has been more or less debil iated for the past two months, the aftermath of the flu, and she sought a warmer cli mate with the hope of regaining her health. Grace Presbyterian Church held what is known as a "church meeting" last week for the pui-pose of calling a pastor. One year ago the Rev. A. B. Barbour came to the congregation on a year's probation. which year having expired, the members of the church were called upon to either con tinue his services or call a successor. There were twenty-nine persons present at the meeting, and the vote stood twenty-eight for the Rev. Harbour and one against. The mi nority being too small for the moderator to take any cognizance of, the Rev. Bar hour was declared the pastor-elect. His salary was fixed at .SI2OO per year, to- be increased as the membership of the church gained in numbers. The Rev. Barbour seems of a well balanced min...

"I don't know why it is," complained the exasperated nurse, "but you colored men give us more trouble than all the rest put together." "Yassum," the patient agreed, "dats jes what de Germans is a'sayin' about us." In France the offensive "nigger" was not used in addressing the dough-boys, and the French, who followed this example, had no word signifying "mulatto." "Some of us," explained Private Bill For shay, "was described as 'beaucoup de cho eolat,' an' de other wuz 'cafe au lait.' " "What would you do if a pack of Germans suddenly came right down on top of us?" asked a sergeant. "Dey ain't gwine to know whar I is," re plied the private. "How's that, Sam?" "Well, you see, dey might know whar I wuz, but not whar I is." A Negro dough-boy was clad in white pajamas one night when the camp was sur prized by German bombers. Everybody headed for his own dugout and Sam had some distance to travel. "What did you do?" he was asked the next morning. "Easy," he replied. "De good Lawd has gim...

It smacks of a good deal of bushwa to hear a colored person profess love, admira tion or common respect for the white man of the South and when he does do so lie is simply looking for a back door hand out. If Italy would make no better showing fighiing the world Hum she did fighting the Huns then the good God be merciful. It looks to us as if President Wilson will get in ;i jam if he docs not get out of Europe post haste. It looks wry much like that a Mrs. Wells will involve another bunch of Seattle police men in another big whiskey scandal. Tnless Chief Warren begins to recruit his much de pleted force the city will soon be without adequate police protection.

MEN WITH NERVE An oversea army officer down in New York banquetted 500 friends in one of the lead ing cafes of the city and the music for the occasion was furnished by an orchestra of colored men. When the eating time came the entertaining officer, though white, gave orders that the colored men be seated at the head of the table and served as the other guests, which brought on a heated argument between the proprietor and himself, and for a second it seemed that the officer would lose, but he rose from his seat and informed his guests of his order and the proprietor's refusal to do as requested and concluedd with: "If they were good enough to fight with they are good enough to eat with. And if they can't sit at my table you can cancel the order for the five hundred plates," brought forth rounds of thund...

That figure is fixed as the maximum limit, and 150,000 ,is the minimum limit, and the estimate of James 11. DHlard, who had charge of the iii<|iury. is joo.iiuo. The movemeni Mad been under way for a hum time before any effort was made to determine the number of Negroes moving north. Moreover, so many left separately and unobserved that complete statistics would have been impractical.

do their best work when using Negro ma terial. AVill Marion Cook, William Tires, even Harry Burleigh and Coleridge-Taylor are not truly themselves in the music which expresses their race. Mr. Tires, for instance, writes charming waltzes, but the best of these have in them Negro influences. The music of our race springs from the soil, and this is true today wiht no other race, except possibly the Russians, and it is be cause of this that I and all my musicians hvae come to love Russian music. Indeed, as far as I am concerned, it is the only music I care for outside of Negro." The Lieutenant then tells how he formed his band. "When war broke out I enlisted as a private in Colonel Hayward's regiment, and I had just passed my officer's examina tion when the Colonel asked me to form a baud. I told him that it would be im possible, as the Negro musicians of New York were paid too well t ohave them give up their jobs to go to Avar. However, Colonel Hayward raised $10,000 and told me to get...

grave would cause the image of the dead to appear. The man caught at this encourag ing suggestion, and, having purchased at a druggist's one hundred cash worth of, not hangonko, but of hangonlan, a medicine for some bodily ailment, by mistake, he hastened to the grave of his wife. He pro ceeded with the burning of what he con sidered the incense, and he was pleasantly surprized to sec the tombstone shake. This he attributed to the efficacy of the spirit invoker, and was highly delighted; but by this time the incense was all gone, so he went home for money to buy another one hundred cash worth. The charming il lusion was then cruelly dispelled by his mother, who called out to him, "Where were you during the earthquake just now?" (1818-30.) The following bit of humor about Mount Fuji is no doubt a classic in its native laud, and might be considered typically .Japanese.

TRIPLE TRAGEDY IN MISSISSIPPI. •I;inios W. Johnson. There has come to us an account of a triple killing in Mississippi. This account is a simple statement of facts that happened at Holly Springs a few days ago. And yet, if a novelist or a dramatist took these facts and wrote a story or a play, his work would be turned down by publishers and public on the ground that it lacked verisimilitude. Indeed, truth is stranger than fiction. A young colored man in love with and courting ;i colored girl; a young white man.

DID YOU KNOW? All of the hospitals in the British domain are to slowly but surely become the prop erty of the government. The poor of Glasgow, Scotland, are to be fed from a public kitchen, from which 2,000 meals daily will go forth. For the maintenance of a manual training course in the high schools of New York City an appropriation of $400,000 annually has been asked. To free the city from venereal diseases, Portland, Oregon, will impose a fine of $250 on any physician failing to report any case he or she may be called to treat. The New York lunch committee, which has been furnishing free lunches to the school children of that city, plans to give the work up and it has appealed to the school board to continue the same.
