at the Reform School. We . have

excellent cook, and Mr. Moore is to 
be congratulated upon securing her 
services. We wish ker much success 
in her new field, and extend onr sym- 
pathy to the boys and girls at Nor- 
mal, who will certainly miss her 
savory dishes.

We repioduep above what the Lei- 
ington Keiald had to say in its issue 
of August 7th whica plainly shov\-s 
the altitude and feeling of tiie 
Souih towards the Bull Moose. It fur- 
ther Hhows that the Southern white 
man, that is of the better class, thousii 
he be a Eemocrat, has never r »acb- 
ed the point where he wculd strike a 
blow at the N«gro of the Southland 
that would absolutely cut him off from 
all avenues of progress. 

It it is a lact thu;. Mr. l{:)Osevelt 
wrote a letter .sertinz Jcith that the 
Progressive party was to be strictly i 
i\hite mail's party, tlipi'o was absolute 
ly nflthliig else to:- .he comity lo do 
other Chan to Ob-i-y the boss. This 
third party is Mr. Rcosevelt's party 
 5nly. started by him when no one else 
was even thinking of such a ihintr. 
He is now, and always has been, in 
full control and is solely responsible 
for everything that goes with the par- 
ty. His own explanation of bis atti- 
tude towards the Negro, is not by any 
means satisfactory and only more fully 
shows him as he is. 

\ 'J 

Every fair minded Negro in 
the land will t-oinmend Presideni 
Taft for comiiijj to the assist- 
ance of Mingoe Saunders. 

We are gNd to note the prac- 
tically un.nnimnus tienunciation 
o f .the ^ ^ull Moose b ^^he Negro 
press of the countiy. 

To try to pay a mm to disre- 
gard ;i solemn pledge, and then 
because he refused to be bought 
denounce him, is-the "most un- 
kindest cut of all." 

We are at a Ios  as to what to 
think or say of tlit).se Negroes 
.wlio, notwithstanding ih'^ treat- 
' meVit accorded their bre'thren in 
the South by Ctdonel Roosevelt, 
- are still yelli'ig for hiiu. 

We fail to see how it will be 
best for the Npl' r   uliiniaiely for 
him to be turmil over to the 
tender mercies of the men in' the 
South who have already dis- 
franchised I'/.in, as Mr. Roose- 
velt now wishes. 

The I.e.yinstoii News, in the begiii- 
.ling of i!ie district campaign, after a 
careful observation of ine past his- 
tory of both .Mr. Taft and Mr. Roose- 
velt, liegan. to support .\Ir. Tuft, and 
las all along earnestly opposed Mr. 
;-tco£8velt, our contention beiag thai 
-Mr. 'i'aft is a true friend to the Negro 
and a fir tnan tor the bead of the na- 
lion, while Mr, Roosevelt's Bull Moose 
methods, if nothing else, made him 
absolutely unflt. Not only that, we 
tail to sea that he ever has in his life 
ione anything for the Negro worth 
V. bile. 

Co!. Roosevelt has placed a 
N'egro wnere he thought he would gel 
out alive. In making his appointment 
of the Charleston, S. C, port, and ot 
the Mississippi postoffice, over the 
protast of the people cf those com-

protest of the Senator from that State, 
he cotild not have thought that safe,

An operation on the heart was per- 
formed recently in Celleviie hospital. 
New York, in whi -h tliirty-six feet of 
gold wire were wrapped arounil the 
aorta, the great artery leadinj; from the 
bea.rt. and a current of electricity sent 
through I he wire, wliich reduced the 
swelling of the artery sulliciently to 
allow it to perform Its natural func- 
tions. . 

Ko anaesthetic was used during the 
operation, but the iscision. which was 
made in the . back of the patient be- 
tween the fifth aud sixth ribs, was 
sprayed with cocaine. At the close of 
the operation, which lasted abottt four 
hours, the physicians expressed them- 
selves at satisfied, jind while the opera- 
tion is not expected to entirely cure 
the patient, it is expected to prolong 
his life. 

- The patient who underwent the oper- 
ation was Oscar .N'ielson, lifty years 
old, a cabinetmaker. sutVerin^' from a 
swelling of tin; aorta, which luid srown 
to such an extent that it was only a 
question of a short time when the ves- 
sel would break and death follow. 

After the Incision was made the gold 
wire, attached to* cannulated needle, 
was run through and wrapped around 
the aorta. The wire was thinner than 
a hair, and after It had been wound 
around the heart in spring fashion tho 
end in the needle was token out and 
attached to an electrical machine, the 
current of which was turned on and 
sent through the wire. The electricity 
hardened the artery, and in a short 
time the blood started to circtilalo free- 
ly throncrli the aorta, and at the same 
time the heart was allowed to perforiu 
its functions. The patient was under 
obsi'rvatioii fiir a period, after which 
the wound was closed. 

This is the second operation of its 
kind perforihed in this country. The 
previous ojteratiou took i)lace five 
months ago, the patient at that time 
being Henry Griffin. Tw:M\o feet of 
gold wire were used on Griffls, after it 
was said that he would not live a week. 
Two weeks later he left the hospital 
and is now well and hearty.

should make application at otce. 

It is quite cu.stoinary for youngr 
psop'e who desire to attend ii 
•chool to pack their trunk and 
start just when it is time for 
the school to open. This will not 
do in the piesent case. We ex- 
ject to hkve a picked company 
f'om all over Kcntucy, and our 
commodations are limited. Al- 
dy a large number of applica- 
tionS,)lanks have been and admit- 
tance cards .sent out. Not all 
rooms are filled as yet, but the 

rush will come in the laSt weeks 

before the tchwol opens, aaiLitJ-

The services throughoiit the day 
last Sunday were conducted by 
~-^.^the pastor. Strong and able ser- 
m'^ns were preached. Rev. OfFutt 
is a forceful speaker and efficient 
minister in every way. .The day 
was very much enjoyed. 

The Sunday-school was largely 
attended and enjoyed a beautiful 
-"^esgage from the pastor. He 
spoke of the necessity of a con- 
tinued increase in the school's at- 
tendance: also of each' member 
making himself a missionary to 
better its condition and bring in 
new memtjers. The banner still 
remains with the second Bible 
class, Miss Whaley teacher, though 
the fight contiunes among the 
other classes, some of them hope 
to land it soon. 

The B. Y. P. U. services were 
beautifully conducted by the pres- 
ident. The discussion was opened 
• by Deacon Hayes, concludei by 
the pastor. The president spoke 
of the trip to Nicholasville last 
week and the feasibility of having 
. them visit us at an early date. On 
next Sunday the discussion will be 
opened by Deacon Lee and the 
general manager, Bro. Junius 
Logan. Mrs. Marshall I,ee will 
read a paper on the lesson. The 
. ■ questions will be ou regeneration. 
At the close of the services Bro. J. 
W. Miller charmed the audience 
with a beatltifnl .solo,' which was 
very much enjoyed. 

The officers of the Union met 
Tuesday evening after the rehearsal 
of the juniOT choir for the purpose 
of fcruiulating plans for increasing 
both interest and attendance of 
Union, and also to arranp e for en- 
tertaining the B. Y. P. tJ. of the 
First Baptist Church, Nicholasville,' 
- Ky. 

The pastor and Rev. S. P. 
■ Young left Tuesday tor Frankfort 
to represent the church in the Gen- 
• eral Association', in session there 
this week.

lightful trip to the charming little 
hamlet of Nicholasville. Ky. We 
were met on our arrival by the 
pastor, Rev. J. W. Million, and 
some of hfs members and escorted 
to their beautiful new church, 
where we were most cordially wel- 
comed and delightfully entertain- 
ed. Their program was very in- 
structive, setting forth their meth- 
od of conducting their Union, 
which is indeed one of the best in 
tfie State. Their ideal song ser- 
vice is quite an inspiration. Our 
Union was abiy represented by the 
following officers: G. E. Canady, 
James Frost, S. B. Hayes, E. L. 
Cunningham and G. C. Barbour. 
Mrs. Maria L. Blackburil spoke in 
behalf of the Main Street Baptist 
Church, this city. After the pro- 
gram we were invited to Samari- 
tan Hall, where delicious refresh- 
ments of ices and cakes were 

The pleasing hospitality of these 
Christian friends will long be re- 
membered. They have promised 
to visit us, and we are preparing 
to entertain them at an early date.
