Editor: In your valuable paper, I
see that somebody had the hardyhood
and "mandagty" to elect Prof. Inman
A. M., Ph. D.. to the presi-
dency of the Macon Baptist Tbeoiogi
eal Seminary, Macon, Mo. It Is an
undisputed fact, you can not keep a
good man down. Mr Page deserves
such an honorable and timely consid
eration. This school Is under the
auspices of the North American
Baptist Home Mission aociety. A
glorious outlook for him With no ill
or malice towards his successors In
the state, I am sure the negroes of
Oklahoma have loat in the uplift of
our racial struggle a great, manly and
useful man Some, and not a few of
us have sense enough to know that,
too. We regretted to see him dis
placed In ills professional relation to
us In this state for novel, Interven
tioni reasons. However, we assure
The Leader, and legion of friends
(white) that it is out of a fullness of
soul we thank you for the high tribute

tinguished and worthy friend Prof

much of the time and with Cora very
little of the time.
Nor is that the worst of it, though
it's bad enough. She is good deal of
a woman, as I've said. I've tried to
make it all business between me and
her. And very profitable business It
is for me, too. She has taught me
more of my own work in a month than
I've learned iu the last five years.
She has the power lo raise me to the
very top of my profession; and is
using it in that direction, too.
But slie won't have it purely busi-
ness. She is a woman and wants the
flatteries, the attention, the recogni-

DAVID SEEKS COUNSEL.
That David Temple, largely through
bis own plan of having Cora and him-
self write out their sides of every
controversy between them, knew what
Cora was going through, he showed in
the letter Tom Woodford got from
him at this time.
Dear Tom Woodford: Several
weeks ago Cora, in the stress of situ
ation you will understand from this
letter, wrote you for the advice and
the comfort of an old friend. At the
last moment she sent it to me instead.
I did what I could to help her solve
her problem and mine. But so little
could I tlo that I am now writing you
vself for advice.
You arc the nearest thing to a
brother Cora has. And I need a

The following letter is self explana-
tory. If you know the whereabouts
of James Hammer you will be doing
[a great service to a lonely girl, by
384 Callcndar Ave., Peoria, Illinois.
Rditor: 1 am appealing to you for
help in trying to locate my father, who
was last heard of in Oklahoma. I
have never seen my father, he and
my mother have been estranged since
my birth. My father's name Is James
Hammer, better known as Jim. I
would judge Ills age as about 50 or 55,
dark brown curly hair; his wife's
name was Stella Myers before her
marriage. I was the only child by
this marriage, and my name was
Anna Hammer. I have since married
a Raveling salesman and my name
now is Mrs. R. M. Dunnett; am 28
years old. I am most anxious to bear
from my father, or any one who may
have ever known him or can give me
ariv information as to bis whereabouts.
I do know that my grandparents and
my father bought up land when it
vvp.-. ! nown as the Indian territory.
I would appreciate it if you would
tlo all you can for me and any in
formation will be cheerfully received
Yours very truly,
MRS. R. M. DUNNETT.
