ple left in the world? Sometime

what would ho the best thing for
a sole alone as I am?
A ns: It's better to be alone
than to he tormented with
someone you don’t like—but
you do have a raft of fri
ends. I do not think you have
any living relativevs, but 1 do

uty, ho wus born and raised in
Omaha) is a home owner and
Mr. Stolinski had direct charge
of the office work under the late
Assessor, Sam K. Greenleaf, and
in that capacity directed the work
of the Negroes employed there.
Ho at all times was found to be
fair and willing to assist. He will
without a doubt resume the fine
relationship that our group had;
with the County Assessors office j
under the late As.-essor Sam K.

M. E. B.—I have a misery in
I my cities and I get sick every
evening Should I continue on
with this doctor?
Ans; You have lost confi
dence in him and since you
feel that he isn't doing any
go d, you would be treating
yourself fair to consult with
another medical doctor. You
will be grately relieved before
the end cf summer.
R.L.T.—Will I regret it if I do
not marry this young man who is
so sweet and seems so crazy a
Ans: I don’t see why you

a uce-s of the business you !
are in and will save some
money this year.
IT. TT.—I’ve had one trouble af-1
tor tho ether all my life and I
don’t understand why. Women
have always been enemies and the
nicer I am to them the dirtyer
they treat me and it nearly drives
me insane. What must I do?
A ns • Drop the grouch, also
the “poor me’s" and for once
in your life look at the world
from the bright side. Any per
son that cannot get nlong
with nnyone on earth—then
something must be wrong
with you. Tour chief fault is
ihat you are over-sensitive
and always feel that some
one is trying to hurt you or
that people don’t like you.
Get out just one month and
visit your neighbors and take
more interest in the socinl life
of your city and I assure you
that you will be a changed

lope your questions, full name,

THE recent tragic death of James Weldon
Johnson separated brothers, who had
been composing songs for two generations.
The elder was, besides, an outstanding lec
turer and leader of his race.
They were born in Jacksonville, Florida,
educated in Atlanta University, Atlanta, Ga.
J. Rosamond went to Boston to-study music,
James Weldon became principal of tne Stan
ton School in Jacksonville.
The summer of 1899, they left for New
York City to interest producers in some songs
they had written. They were taken up by
many celebrities, including the famous vaude
ville performer, Bob Cole.

Identifying the Rose
Giving the rose a geographical
identification has long been a popu
lar practice of the melody makers.
More than two score of songs of
this classification are listed by the
American Society of Composers,
Authors and Publishers. Victor Her
bert is represented with "Rose of
Algeria” as well as "Rose of the
World.” Sigmund Romberg has a
place with “Rose of France.” A
“I Live the Life I Love”
more lyrical title is Harry Warren’s
“Rose of the Rio Grande.”
Among other names are “Rose of
Hawaii,” “Rose of Honolulu,” “Rose
of Erin,” “Rose of Argentine,”
“Rose of Stamboul,” also by Rom
berg; “Rose of Mandalay,” “Rose
of Mannawac” and the war-inspired
“Rose of No Man’s Land.” The
best known of this particular class
of rose songs, because it was popu
larized by Fannie Brice, is “Rosa
of Washington Square,” by J. F.
Hanley and Ballard MacDonald.
Most ingenious arrangement o£
Stephen Foster’s eye-minting mas
terpiece ‘‘0U1 Folks at Home” we
can recall was that provided by tHe
late Julian Edwards in the dim and
distant operetta, “When Johnny
Comes Much g Home.”
America lias never given suf
ficient honor -to her songwriters.
True, we ln\ve belatedly recognized
Stephen Foster and Victor Herbert.
At any event. Pittsburgh ha3 erect
ed statues to h r native son, Foster
and in Gotham s Len
tral Park there is a
bust of the Dublin-born
New yorkcr, Herbert.
No civic glorification
has over been bestowed,
so far as we can recall,
upon James A. Bland,
who wrote “Carry Mo
Back to Old Virginny"
or Du. iel Emmet, who
in a moment of price
less inspiration dashed
off "Dixie,” or, indeed
to any of those melody

picturesque America in

But how the republic rushes to
the marble works to pay tribute to
