OUR MISSIONS AND MISSIONARIES.


It is our custom to publish in the second issue of the Magazine for each
year a catalogue of the churches, institutions and schools into which we
place the offerings devoted by those who send them, to the great work of
the American Missionary Association.

If our readers will look carefully at this, and preserve it for future
reference, they will come into sympathy more easily and truly with those
who have gone from our Christian homes and churches in the name of
Christ and for his sake.

These pages of names and places represent many things:

_First._--_The work._ Our missionaries are among four races, the white,
the black, the red and the yellow. These are children of a common
Father; they are under the dominion of a common sinfulness; they are the
possible heirs of a common Saviour. We go to them with the same gospel,
which is able to save them to the same fellowship of faith and love on
earth and to the same heaven.

_Secondly._--_The missionaries and the characteristics of their work._
There are represented in this list, teachers of theology, teachers of
language, of history, of philosophy and of science. There are teachers
of "common branches" and "higher branches." There are teachers of
industries for men and women, house-makers and home-makers. There are
preachers to organized churches and preachers at large whose work is to
gather churches. They are all alike missionaries.

Notice, also, what a large proportion of our missionary work is being
done by Christian women. Well did Secretary Hiatt say, "The history of
this Association is a grand and splendid eulogy of woman." "Our sisters
who went South while the sky was yet heavy with the clouds of war from
the homes of refinement and culture and religion," are many of them
remaining until now, and they are continually re-enforced from our best
institutions of learning in the East and in the West. There is a common
fidelity on the shores of the Gulf, in the mountains of the South and
among the tribes of the plains. These men and women in our churches and
schools who have given themselves in consecration and sacrifice to this
service are leading those who have been crushed by oppressions and
wrongs of men, and who have been degraded in ignorance and in sin, to
rise into a new life, and into new habits of thought and feeling.

They are working to rescue millions from the woful inheritances of the
pitiless centuries. They are teaching those who are to be the teachers
of their people. They are preparing those who shall lead their own
peoples. It is not a work of a score of years, nor of half a century. It
is a part of the work of Christianity, whatever time it may take, and we
ask those who pray "_Thy kingdom come_" to remember these missionary
teachers and preachers before God that they may be of good courage,
faithful and patient in their ministering.

_Thirdly._--_These pages represent also the faith and sacrifices of
Christians by which this service of Jesus Christ goes on._ Brethren and
sisters, you who contribute to this work, read in these names assurances
to gladden your hearts and cheer your faith. See what solid regiments of
the Master's army are in the land where slavery has perished, but where
the problems which follow it are larger than ever before. Look up the
locations of these missionaries on the map, and see where they are, in
the valleys and on the mountains of the South, in plains of the far
West, and on the shores of the Pacific sea. They report cheering
tidings. Their schools are overflowing. Converts are being added to
their churches. Our institutions are in harmony and zealous emulation.
The year has opened auspiciously, "And the best of all is, God is with
us."

       *       *       *       *       *

The Rev. Frank E. Jenkins, who succeeded the Rev. C.J. Ryder as a Field
Superintendent, and who has served the Association since that time with
an untiring devotion and with signal ability, has at his own urgent
request been transferred from this general work to a specific part of
the field.

He has accepted the pastorate of the Congregational Church of New
Decatur, Ala., with which we are in co-operation. Our consent to this
change would have been the more reluctant but for the fact that we are
in heartiest sympathy with the missionary purposes contemplated in this
exchange of service.

We congratulate the New Decatur church upon its entrance into its
tasteful edifice--recently dedicated,--with a pastor whom we relinquish
from the relationships of Field Superintendent only upon his own
repeated convictions of duty, and in view of his preference for this
particular work.

SOUTHERN NOTES.

BY SECRETARY A.F. BEARD.


The "sleeper" had been transformed into a parlor car, which was used
that day chiefly by the colored porter and myself. The "paper-boy" came
through and offered me a New York _Illustrated Weekly_, adorned on the
first page with the portrait of Jefferson Davis, for whom the South was
then mourning with great abundance of white and black cotton cloth.

After I had declined with thanks to invest in this picture, I turned to
the colored porter who was travelling in the white man's car in apparent
"social equality" and casually remarked, "Your people should feel very
grateful to Jefferson Davis for what he did for you. You ought to have
that picture." With a surprise that he could not conceal, he intimated
that he did not understand me. He "didn't care for it," and "didn't know
what Jeff Davis had done for his people."

Time being at some discount, I undertook to tell him that "Jefferson
Davis did more than any other person to take the South out of the Union.
He was chief among the secessionists. Then, as President, he made so
many mistakes, he did more than any other man to prevent the success of
the Confederacy. He did more to bring about the freedom of the slave
than any other man. Since the emancipation of your race came on as a
consequence of secession, why should you not be grateful to Jefferson
Davis and cherish his memory?"

The black man by this time had gathered himself up for his reply to my
Q.E.D. Not knowing what my sympathies might be, he replied in a slow and
careful way, "Well, sir, I can't see it as you do. The way it looks to
me is this, you know. In these days there are a good many people who
don't believe in God--not much--but I reckon it was God who set my
people free. You see, he didn't want that condition of things any
longer. It was God who did it, sir, that's what I think, and I don't
believe it was Jeff Davis. That's my view."

I did not argue the question further. When one gets down solid upon the
decrees, then I stop. But as the car rolled along with the speed usual
on Southern railways, I pondered the text, "The wrath of man shall
praise Him, and the remainder thereof shall he restrain."

       *       *       *       *       *

He was a colored porter, and I may have transgressed the laws of "social
equality" in asking him aught other than to make up the berth, and to
call me early. With the judgment resting upon Geo. W. Cable--who is
never to be forgotten or forgiven because he had conference with some
colored people in Nashville, and did not insult them--one should be very
careful of his social equality. Nevertheless, I ventured to talk with
this colored porter. I asked him what he knew about his race, and what
he thought of his people and their prospects.

He said, "I was raised in North Carolina, never had much chance myself,
had only a country school to go to--kept by a colored man--not very good
teacher--pretty good--better than none. But there's good many good
schools now, and good many smart colored people by this time, sir.
There's a good many risin' all the time. Old Fred. Douglass is a right
smart man, you know; but then he sort o' left his race when he married a
white woman. We don't think so much of him as a leader as we used to."

The car rolled on. It was two hours late at my station. The bus man who
stood in the stage door and collected the fares was conversational. He
was unaware that by my ride and conversation in the car, I had forfeited
my "social equality" with him. Hence he did not ostracise me; but
smiling, said, "Train very late to-day, sir." "Isn't it usually as late
as this?" I asked. "Invariably, sir, except when it's later."

       *       *       *       *       *

PARAGRAPHS.


Dr. Rankin, the newly-elected President of Howard University, writes:

"Everything at the University begins very promisingly. We had a crowded
preaching service on Sunday night, and are observing the week of prayer
at 12:30 noon. The meetings are full and impressive."

"If a donor should give a great material gift to the University, I am
sure I ought to write you. But the great Giver is giving us the choicest
of spiritual gifts. Eight of the students, one of them a senior, this
noon expressed a desire for prayers. We continue the daily meeting at
noon."

       *       *       *       *       *

The immigration into the United States is steadily declining, as appears
by the figures reported in the papers, while the blending of the
foreigners here is steadily and rapidly going forward, rendering them
speedily one people. On the other hand, the colored population in the
Southern States is steadily augmenting, while the alienation between the
black and white races in the South is becoming more pronounced. The
Southern problem is the more difficult of solution.

       *       *       *       *       *

A clergyman in a Southern town who is connected with families of great
influence, and who ministers to a large white church, is accustomed to
preach every afternoon in a colored church under the care of this
Association. He usually repeats to the colored church the sermon
preached in the forenoon to his own people, and finds that those who
hear it in the afternoon appreciate it fully. The two remarkable facts
in this incident are that the gentleman should consent to do this
gratuitous labor for the colored church, and that the colored church
should understand and appreciate the sermon prepared for the cultured
white congregation.

A BEAUTIFUL GIFT.


Mr. Silas M. Rideout, of Cumberland, Maine, has presented to the
American Missionary Association, through the Boston office, a most
beautiful box for keepsakes. It is about 6 inches in width, 9 in length
and 4 in depth, made of inlaid woods of different colors very tastefully
arranged, "American Missionary" being set in the cover. The inside is
lined with plush. On a card in the box the following was written by a
friend: "This box was presented to the American Missionary Association
by a good man living in a small town in Maine, who, like that good
fisherman of whom we have heard, gives such as he had. This dear brother
of _four-score_ and _two years_, made this box and presented it to the
American Missionary Association, with its contents $10.25, which was
contributed by such of his friends as desired to have a look at the
skill of their aged brother in his work of love for the cause of
Christ." It was intended by our venerable friend that this box should
draw other contributions and finally be sold, the proceeds to be devoted
to the work of the American Missionary Association in which Mr. Rideout
has been so deeply interested for many years. A gentleman in Boston
offers $12 for the box. Will not some one make a better offer, and in
this way recognize the remarkable skill of this aged friend in his
effort to increase the income of the Association to help the needy
millions among whom our missionaries labor?

       *       *       *       *       *

THE SOUTHERN SITUATION.

SOME SUGGESTIVE FACTS.


_First Fact._ The condition of the colored man In the South is becoming
more pitiable and precarious. Mr. Grady, in his last speech, announced
the unalterable purpose of the Southern whites never to submit to Negro
rule, and we read not long since of a "quiet election" held in a
Southern city, because the colored people, duly warned, kept away from
the polls. We know something, also, of the struggles of that people
against almost insuperable difficulties in trying to obtain food, homes
and education. In addition to all this, the public press keeps us
informed with sad frequency of the repeated murders inflicted upon the
defenceless colored people.

_Second Fact._ We learn with gratification that Southern people of high
standing denounce these outrages. Governor Richardson, of South
Carolina, assured a colored delegation that called upon him, that he had
offered a reward for the apprehension of the Barnwell murderers, and
pledged his sacred word that nothing would be undone on his part to
bring the lynchers to condign punishment. Senator Wade Hampton is said
to have endorsed the sentiments of the Governor, and leading Southern
papers have censured in unmeasured terms this outrage.

But as yet these murderers have not been arrested, and we presume that
no one expects they will be. The murderers of Mr. Clayton, of Arkansas,
who presumed to run as an independent candidate for Congress, were
denounced by the authorities of the State, and rewards were offered for
their apprehension. But, though many months have elapsed, they have not
been arrested, and no one, North or South, imagines that they will be
punished. Kind words from Southern officials will not solve the great
problem.

_Third Fact._ The colored people bear up well under all these trying
circumstances. We should suppose they would be utterly discouraged, for
they see little prospect of securing their rights as men and citizens,
and even life and property are not safe. They are allured to a change of
location by flaming handbills, making tempting but deceptive offers of
better wages and better homes. They are hunted down and massacred, and
yet their wrongs are unredressed.

But in spite of all this, they struggle on, constantly gaining property
and homes, some of them acquiring wealth. If they are deceived on
reaching some new Eldorado, losing their all in making the change, they
do not give up, but strike in again. If they are not safe in some rural
districts, they go to the cities. But best of all, their educated men
are showing great wisdom and moderation, as witness the calm and
dispassionate action of the Convention of the most intelligent and
influential colored men in Charleston, S.C., after the Barnwell
massacre. They passed resolutions of dignified condemnation of the
wrong, yet urged their people to remain quiet, and let the proper
authorities vindicate the law. The forbearance of that meeting has won
the commendations of leading white men in the South.

And here let us say, that the white people of the South make no greater
mistake, than when they imagine that it is a dangerous thing to educate
the colored people. On the contrary, we believe that the facts make it
manifest that it is by these educated men that their race will be guided
wisely and safely through this great crisis, and that if a war of races
is to be avoided, these educated colored men will be a grand factor in
averting it.

_Fourth Fact._ It is conceded by all right-thinking people, that the
education of the colored race is the only true solution of the Southern
problem. This has been declared in Presidential messages, in the
utterances of such candid men as Dr. Curry, Dr. Haygood and Colonel
Keating, by writers in all the Northern religious papers, and is, we
believe, the accepted and settled opinion of Christian people at the
North. Everybody admits, also, that there is a crisis coming, and that
what is done for Negro education must be done quickly. The North has a
duty in this matter, and admits it. Our constituents have a special duty
in the case, and they feel it. They have done nobly in the past, and
have assumed great responsibilities which cannot now be neglected or
deferred. But here is the strangest of all the facts in this series:
With the urgency before them, _our constituents do not make a
corresponding increase in their donations_.

We feel impelled to urge this upon the attention of pastors, churches
and individuals. Brethren and friends, do not delay as in the case of
slavery, till the conflict comes! Do not expect that everybody else is
doing what is needed. The responsibility is personal and pressing, and
each individual and church can meet it only by making larger gifts--not
from an impulse, but from a deliberate purpose formed under a sense of
obligation to the Negro, the Nation and to Christ.

       *       *       *       *       *

REV. W.W. PATTON, D.D., LL.D.


The sudden and unexpected death of Dr. Patton takes away a man who has
made a shining mark in the various relations of pastor, secretary,
editor and president of a university. All these responsible positions he
has filled with great fidelity and success. It becomes us to speak
especially of his relations to this Association, which have been
intimate and special. He was one of the few men present at the formation
of the American Missionary Association in Albany in 1846, encountering
the obloquy and ostracism which was then attached to those who favored
the new movement. In 1868 he became the Western Corresponding Secretary
of the Association in Chicago, and held this position for about two
years. In 1877 he accepted the Presidency of Howard University in
Washington, D.C., the theological department of which is under the care
of the Association, and in which Dr. Patton was a teacher. Thus from the
founding of the Association till the time of his death, Dr. Patton had
been connected with it, sometimes officially, and always with deep
sympathy and earnest co-operation.

He was in usual health, with his wonted vigor of body and mind, till
within a few hours of his death, and on the day on which that occurred,
his Presidency of Howard University expired by the terms of his
resignation. He seemed to be fitted for further usefulness, and had
looked forward with the expectation of using his pen and voice in the
interests of the Master whom he had so faithfully served, but the scene
of his active enjoyment and services was by that Master transferred to
the higher realm.

REVIVAL AT STRAIGHT UNIVERSITY.


President Hitchcock writes from Straight University: "Our meetings
during the 'week of prayer,' took on the character of revival meetings,
and I have never before seen the school so stirred. Every girl boarding
in Stone Hall is professedly converted, and there are not more than
eight or ten boys who are not in the same good way, and every one of
these is interested and has asked for prayers. Rejoice with us and pray
for us."

THE INDIAN.

_Address at the Annual Meeting in Chicago_,

BY RT. REV. H.B. WHIPPLE.


I accepted the kind invitation of my good brother, Rev. Dr. Strieby, to
address you, because I do believe that if the hedges which have been
builded in the garden of the Lord are ever taken away, it will be by
hearty, believing work for our Saviour. The history of the North
American Indians is a sad story of wrongs. You may begin far back in the
days of our Puritan fathers, when Christian men marched to the music of
a fife and drum, with the head of King Philip on a pole, and then after
prayer, decided that the sins of the father ought to be visited on the
children, and therefore sold his son as a slave to Bermuda; and you may
follow down to where the saintly Worcester, a Congregational missionary,
was tried, sentenced, and went to the Penitentiary in Georgia for
teaching Indians to read; and so on to where a Moravian church of
Christian Indians were cruelly tortured and murdered; and so on to the
last of our Indian wars, and it is a dark story of robbery and
wrongs--we have spent five hundred millions on Indian wars, and have
killed ten of our own people to every one killed of the Indians. Thank
God that by the efforts of Christian men, the heart of the Nation has
been touched, and to-day willing hands and hearts are laboring for their
Christian civilization.

When I went to my diocese thirty years ago, there were over twenty
thousand Indians in Minnesota. They had sunk to a depth of degradation
their heathen fathers had not known. Friends told me it was hopeless,
that they were a perishing race. I said if they are perishing, the more
reason to make haste to give to them the gospel. The picture was dark,
but not darker than that drawn by the pen of divine Inspiration in the
first chapter of Romans. I carried it where I have learned to take all
which troubles me, and at my blessed Saviour's feet I promised I would
never turn my back on the Indian whom God had placed at my door, and I
have tried to keep the vow.

I can tell you the story of Indian missions by relating one incident.
Some years ago, Rev. Lord Charles Hervey went with me to the Indian
country. We had delightful services. After the Holy Communion we were
sitting on the green-sward near a house. The head chief said, "Your
friend came from across the great water; does he know the Indian's
history?" I said "No." He said "I will tell him."

"Before the white man came, the forests and prairies were full of game,
the rivers and lakes were full of fish, the wild rice was Manidou gift
to the red man. Would you like to see one of these Indians?" There
stepped out on the porch an Indian man and woman dressed in furs,
ornamented with porcupine quills. "There," said the chief, "my people
were like those before the white man came."

"Shall I tell you what the white man did for us? He came and told us we
had no fire horses, no fire canoes, no houses. He said if we would sell
him our land, he would make us like white men. Shall I tell you what he
did? No, you had better see it." The door opened, and out stepped a
poor, degraded looking Indian, his face besmeared with mud, his blanket
in rags, no leggins, and by his side a poor, wretched looking woman in a
torn calico dress. The chief raised his hands and said, "Manido Manido,
is this an Indian?" The man bowed his head. "How came this?" The Indian
held up a black bottle and said, "This was the white man's gift." Some
of us bowed our heads in shame.

Said the chief, "If this were all, I would not have told you. Long years
ago a pale-faced man came to our country. He spoke kindly, and seemed to
want to help us, but our hearts were hard. We hated the white man and
would not listen. Every summer when the sun was so high, he came. We
always looked to see his tall form coming through the forest. One year I
said to my fellows, 'what does this man come for? He does not trade with
us, he never asks anything of us. Perhaps the Great Spirit sent him.' We
stopped to listen. Some of us have that story in our hearts. Shall I
tell you what it has done for us?" The door opened and out stepped a
young man--a clergyman--in a black frock coat, and by his side a woman
neatly dressed in a black alpaca dress. Said the chief, "There is only
one religion in the world which can lift a man out of the mire and tell
him to call God 'Father,' and that is the religion of Jesus Christ."

We have had many deferred hopes, and sometimes it has been dark as
midnight. After nearly three years of hard work, I had both of my Indian
missions destroyed, church and mission house burned, and our western
border for three hundred miles desolated by an Indian massacre, which
destroyed the fairest portion of our State, and left eight hundred of
our citizens sleeping in nameless graves. It was needed to teach us that
nations as well as individuals reap exactly what they sow. We began
again. Here and there some Indian would listen, and the gospel was the
same to him as to us. One day an Indian came to our missionary and said,
"I know this religion is true. The men who have walked in this new trail
are better and happier. But I have always been a warrior, and my hands
are full of blood. Could I be a Christian?" The missionary repeated the
story of God's love. To test the man he said, "May I cut your hair?" The
Indian wears his scalp lock for his enemy--when it is cut it is a sign
he will never go on the war-path again. The man said, "Yes, you may cut
it; I shall throw my old life away." It was cut. He started for home and
met some wild Indians who shouted with laughter, and with taunts said:
"Yesterday you were a warrior, to-day you are a squaw." It stung the man
to madness, and he rushed to his home and threw himself on the floor and
burst into tears. His wife was a Christian, and came and put her arms
about his neck and said: "Yesterday there was not a man in the world
who dared call you a coward. Can't you be as brave for Him who died for
you as you were to kill the Sioux?" He sprang to his feet and said, "I
can and I will." I have known many brave, fearless servants of Christ,
but I never knew one braver than this chief who is now in Paradise.

I wish I could take you to a Christian Indian's home. You might see
nothing but a plain log house, and you might wonder why the tears came
in my eyes as he said to me, "That is my daughter's room; the boys sleep
up stairs; this is for me and my wife." They are tears of joy, for I
knew them when they herded as swine, in a wigwam. It is the religion of
Christ which has brought respect for womanhood.

I want to take you far away in the forest to Red Lake. The head chief,
Mah-dwah-go-no-wind, was a remarkable man as a wild man, true, honest
and brave. He came and asked me to give him a missionary. I loved him
and we were warm friends. I said "I cannot give you a missionary for the
American Missionary Association has a missionary now in that field." The
chief came again and again to see me. He said: "I want your religion. If
you refuse I will ask the Roman Catholics." I wrote Rev. Dr. Strieby,
and told him the situation. I said "The field is in my diocese. I have
the right to send a missionary there, but ask your consent because I
will never be a party to present Christian divisions to heathen men."
After due deliberation, the Association consented. I am happy to tell
you that that old chief and nearly all the adults of his band are
faithful communicants. At my last visit, the chief came to me and said,
"My Father, since you were here, my old wife with whom I have lived
fifty years, has gone to sleep in the grave. I shall go to lie by her
side. I have heard that white Christians bless the place where they
sleep as belonging to God. Will you bless the place where my wife sleeps
and ask God to care for it until he calls his children out of the
grave?" We formed a procession of the Indians, the clergy and the old
chief and myself, and marched around the place singing in Ojibway,
"Jesus lover of my soul"; then I read appropriate scripture, made an
address and offered prayer, and asked blessing on this "acre of God."
After the service the chief said: "I thank you for telling me I have a
Saviour. I thank you for blessing the place where my wife sleeps. I have
your face on my heart. Good bye."

I could keep you longer than I ought telling you of the lights and
shadows of missionary life. The North American Indian is the noblest
type of a wild man on the earth. He recognizes a Great Spirit, he loves
his home, he is passionately devoted to his people, and believes in a
future life. The Ojibway language is a marvel. The verb has inflections
by thousands. If an Indian says "I love" and stops, you can tell by the
inflection of the verb whether he loves an animate or inanimate object,
a man or a woman. The nicest shade of meaning in St. Paul's Epistles
could be conveyed in Ojibway, and I have heard a missionary say, "A
classic Greek temple standing in the forest would not be more marvelous
than this wonderful language."

The Indians are heathen folk and will often come to the Christian life
fettered by old heathen ideas, and some may stumble and fall; they did
in St. Paul's time; but I can say that some of the noblest instances of
the power of religion I have ever known have been among these poor red
men. I can recall death-beds where an Indian looked up in my face and
said, "The Great Spirit has called me to go on the last journey. I am
not afraid to go, for Jesus is going with me, and I shall not be
lonesome on the road."

I am happy to tell you that the clouds are breaking. Thousands of this
poor race are rejoicing in the light of the Gospel. The heart of the
nation has been touched, and thousands are laboring for their salvation.
The Indians are not decreasing. It is due to the absence of internecine
wars, to their protection from dangerous contagious diseases, to better
medical care and a wiser administration. In the future, Indians must
have citizenship, but not until they are prepared for this precious
boon. The ballot cannot redeem humanity. I was asked by President
Cleveland what I thought of making the Indian a voter. I said, "It has
been tried." Under an old territorial law, any Indian who wore the
civilized dress could vote. I have heard of an election where a tribe of
Indians were put through a hickory shirt and pair of pants, and we know
how that election went. The Indian must have the protection of law. In
his wild state he has the "lex talionis." He becomes a Christian. A
drunken wild man kills his cow or insults his wife. He could punish the
brute, but we have taught him that he must not revenge his wrongs, and
so the Christian Indian is pitiably helpless. I can take you to an
Indian village where property and life are safe, where childhood,
womanhood, and old age are cared for, and it is due to the Gospel of
Christ.

While missionary work must be carried on in the native tongue, the
schools ought to teach the English language--if schools are conducted
only in the heathen tongue, you not only have no Christian ideas, but
when the child has learned to read, he has no books. He should be taught
in a language which opens to him the literature, the science and the
Christian teaching of the Christian world. The Gospel of Jesus Christ
will do for the Indian what it has done for others through all the
ages--give him home, manhood and freedom.

Lastly--we are living in eventful times. One hundred years ago the
people who spoke the English tongue were less numerous than some of the
Latin races of Europe. To-day one hundred and fifty millions of people
speak the English language. When we remember how God made the Greek
tongue the language of the world to prepare for the first preaching of
the Gospel of His Son, may we not believe he designs to use our English
tongue to prepare for the second coming of our Lord?

Brethren, we hear a great deal about Indian problems, Negro problems,
and problems which hinder all work for God and man. When General Sherman
and other officers of the army were sent out to investigate that awful
massacre in Colorado, they wrote in their report: "The Indian problem,
like all other human problems, can be solved by one sentence in an old
book--'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.'"

LETTER FROM MISS COLLINS.


I went to Oahe to take two girls to school, and was gone eleven days. I
travelled nearly three hundred miles, driving my ponies myself, and last
Sabbath held the services for Spotted Bear in the morning, as Mr. Riggs
was absent; taught a class in the afternoon, and returned to Cheyenne
agency on Monday, to find that the Indian man who went with me had
returned home. I visited the Government school there, and witnessed
Major McChesney issue the annuities to the Indians; found a party of
Indians coming this way as far as the Itazipco camp on the Moreau; came
with them so far--about forty-five miles from here--and from there
Bessie, Jumbo (my ponies) and I came on alone. I drove the forty-five
miles in one day, arriving here at dark.

At Cheyenne a number of fine-looking, well-dressed young Indian men came
up to me and addressed me in English. I did not recognize some of them,
and they told me they went to school to me in '75, '76 and '77. I
remember them as dirty little long-haired, blanket Indians. It made my
heart strong to take these manly young men by the hand and to hear them
say, "You were my first teacher."

One night, when I was coming home, we got into camp, and the Indian tent
had on one side a man and his wife, his son and daughter, and his baby
twins. On the other side of the fire, another man, wife and child, four
dogs, two puppies, and back of the fire a man and his wife and two young
men and myself. When supper was ready, the dogs were put outside, the
children hushed, and the head man said, "Winona pray." They were all
strangers to me but two of them, so you may know I was surprised. I
prayed, and when I finished, all said, "Ho, ho, ho," that is, all the
men. I was again surprised at the universal consent or endorsement of
the petition. I had some rich experiences, many hardships new to me, but
I sowed seed which I doubt not will spring up. A half-breed Indian, Joe
Hodgkiss, and his wife, were very kind to me.

When I got in sight of the house here, men stood all along the road
waiting to shake hands with me. I should not have undertaken the trip,
but the girls were about fifteen years old, and if they were not in
school this winter they never would be. I could not see the good
material in them wasted. Mr. Reed could not go, and he did not want
Elias to leave his school to go. So I hired a team and went. I am glad
I did. God meant me to get into the homes and hearts of those strangers,
and I had no fear but that he planned it all.

GRAND VIEW, TENN.


A teacher writes: "Doubtless you have learned how full our school is. We
all feel that we _must_ do something in some way to have more buildings.
Several were obliged to go away last week, being unable to secure
boarding-places. The dormitory is more than full. There are sixteen boys
in four small rooms; three boys occupy one end of the old store house
near the railroad. This warm weather is certainly favorable for them.
Twenty new pupils came one day. Others are expected to-morrow. Where
shall we put them? Nine in the main room are now without seats; chairs
were placed in the aisle. In the primary room it is just as full,
forty-two being crowded into space intended for thirty-two."

Another: "We are blessed with a deep religious awakening, which has
reached many of the students."

BUREAU OF WOMAN'S WORK.

MISS D.E. EMERSON, SECRETARY.


In reading our list of Missionaries and Mission Stations, ladies will
recognize many familiar names of those in whom they have become
particularly interested through contributions to the work.

Maine ladies will find their four teachers for whose support they have
become responsible.

Vermont ladies will look at the McIntosh School with a sense of
proprietorship, and rejoice in its enlargement.

Massachusetts and Rhode Island may find their four teachers sustained by
the Woman's Home Missionary Association, and many Massachusetts ladies
who have been especially interested in the school at Tougaloo may
rejoice to be connected with such an institution.

Connecticut ladies have done much for their school at Thomasville, Ga.,
although not as largely through their State Union. This school was begun
through the liberality of a Connecticut lady, and for its continuance
and development this Association depends upon the Bureau of Woman's
Work. Contributions from all sources are solicited.

The New York Union abides by its principles to increase its contribution
each year, and in addition to the support of three missionaries, pledges
six hundred dollars to the general work.

The Ohio Union comes forward also with an appropriation to the general
work, additional to the support of four missionaries.

The Illinois Union continues its support to two missionaries, and hopes
for a third during the year.

If the ladies of Michigan will look at the Athens, Ala., Trinity School
in our list, they will see their own State represented there, an
incentive, we trust, to special effort toward the sum recommended by the
officers of their Union.

The ladies of Minnesota have the opportunity to aid the school at
Jonesboro, Tennessee, and if they carry out the recommendation of their
Minnesota Missionary Society, they will this year sustain in full the
two lady teachers.

The other Missionary Unions represented in our list have shown especial
interest, and nearly all have made such pledge of help as will soon
secure them a special representative in the field.

A Children's Missionary is sustained by ladies and children, and special
work is also assigned to Christian Endeavor Societies.

       *       *       *       *       *

Thus it will be seen that the long list of Ladies' Societies shown each
month as co-operating with us, is not merely in name. We really have
their help, and a careful reading of our list of missionaries will make
clear that we not only need their help, but can give them much more to
do.

A lady recently brought to us five hundred dollars as the result of her
personal effort, and when we expressed to her our thanks she exclaimed,
"Don't say a word; it is _my_ work as well as yours." Let us be workers
together.

In sending your money to your State officers, do not fail to designate
it as for the _American Missionary Association_.

       *       *       *       *       *

The Way One Mission Band in Iowa raised its money--"Our society was
organized in 1888, and the first year we sent twenty dollars for Beach
Institute. We have about twenty members, from five to thirteen years of
age. We meet once a month through the summer, but close for the winter.
Last summer I gave to all over ten years of age a nickel, and those
under ten a penny to see how much they could gain. These are a few of
the reports. One little boy with his nickel bought a sitting of eggs
from which he raised eleven chickens, which he sold for two dollars and
twenty cents. Another raised nine chickens which he sold for two
dollars. Another bought a little turkey, which he sold at Thanksgiving
for a dollar and ten cents. Another with a penny bought a squash vine,
from which he sold five large squashes for fifty-five cents. Another
bought a row of potatoes for which he received fifty cents, and so the
pennies multiplied. I gave mite-boxes to all in the spring, and so at
the end of the year we are able again to send you the neat little sum of
twenty-five dollars."

We would suggest to all ladies connected with the auxiliaries of State
Missionary Unions, that funds for the American Missionary Association be
sent to us through the treasurers of the Union. Care, however, should be
taken to designate the money as for the American Missionary Association,
since _undesignated funds will not reach us_.
