The Jubilee Year Fund.

Extract from the appeal of the Executive Committee of the American
Missionary Association:

Fifty Dollars a Share.

It is proposed to raise during the next six months a special Jubilee
Year Fund of $100,000 in shares of $50 each, with the hope and
expectation that these shares will be taken by the friends of missions
without lessening those regular contributions which must be depended
upon to sustain the current work.

Our readers will notice that our jubilee share list is increasing in
numbers. We have reason to be grateful to God in that he has moved the
hearts of so many and led them to help our Lord's needy ones. We would
that those who have responded to our appeals could see the things that
we see, and hear the things which we hear. We have nothing but gratitude
for the fact that in this time of financial distress and uncertainty,
when money is so hard to get, the cause which we bring to the Christian
love and patriotism of good people is not losing, but gaining in their
sympathies and help. This trying year--trying to so many, therefore
trying to us--brings a jubilee thanksgiving to us, in that we are not
sinking deeper into the horrible pit and miry clay of debt, but are
little by little being pulled out of the slough. We know not how long
the pull may be, but if those who love the Lord Jesus Christ will pull
all together we shall not fail, and we need not be discouraged. Our feet
will get upon a rock and our goings be established; for which we pray.


The _Home Mission Monthly_ of the American Baptist Home Mission Society,
in an article upon "Leaders," agrees with us in saying: "A different
style of men is needed as leaders of the colored people to-day from that
of those who aspired to leadership twenty-five years ago; the race has
made great progress; there are multitudes now of Negro men and women who
have had the advantages of the common schools, many who have a college
education, and some who have university culture; to wisely influence
them in their thought and action is more difficult than to control the
masses of the illiterate and untrained. It is especially worthy of
consideration that among the Negroes of the South to-day are some men of
power and of education who are leaders; but whose leadership,
unfortunately, is in the wrong direction. This renders it all the more
urgent that the Mission Society and kindred organizations should seek to
supply them with a class of leaders who, by reason of their godly
character, their knowledge, their training, their consecration, will be
able to counteract the evil influences now at work, and to lead their
people into paths of righteousness.

"The Mission Society does not attempt to provide a college education
for the multitudes of Negroes; even this would be a task beyond its
resources. What it does aim to do is simply to secure, if possible,
the education of a comparatively few young men and young women, who
shall become leaders among their people; men and women who by their
knowledge, training, culture, power, will be able to organize and
direct the energies of the masses of the people. Leaders are needed,
and these should be thoroughly competent for leadership; it is a hard
task to influence successfully the development of a race of eight
million people, and those who attempt the work require natural
qualities of a high order and also unusual attainments."

What is to prevent these people who have been enfranchised from
becoming the prey of demagogues and designing men who wish to use
them for unchristian purposes and in unchristian ways, unless they have
large minded, thoroughly educated leaders with knowledge of history
and of life who can lead their own people in the ways of righteousness?
Events now transpiring give significance to this question.

The University of Pennsylvania has conferred the degree of Doctor
of Philosophy on Mr. Lewis B. Moore, who graduated from Fisk University
a few years ago. We listened to his "graduating address" at
the close of his college years at Fisk, whence he went to Philadelphia
to take charge of a branch of the Y.M.C.A. While attending to the
laborious duties of this position he has, during four years of earnest,
patient, and thorough study, earned his degree of Ph.D. in Greek
and Latin and Ethics, in one of the severest graduate schools in the
country. Dr. Moore is one of "our boys"; and there are many of
them who are preparing themselves, by their vision of a larger life
and their attainment of larger possessions, to be wise leaders among
their people. Dr. Moore is now an instructor in Howard University,
Washington, D.C.

There are those who object to the constitutional rights of the Negro,
and some who object to his Christian privileges, lest his recognition as
a man shall lead to "social equality," whatever this may mean. The
following from a leading Negro paper, _i.e._, edited by a Negro for a
Negro constituency, is a testimony as to what is and what is not the
Negro's idea of "recognition":

"That the Negroes in recognizing constitutional rights are at the same
time seeking an arbitrary social equality with any other race is
erroneous. From the time of emancipation, the colored people have had no
disposition to force a social alliance with the whites. The colored
citizens have all their civil and political rights, and these rights
they demand. When honored colored men or women enter a first-class
hotel or restaurant, or seek a decent stateroom on a steamer, they do
not enter these places because they are seeking social contact with the
whites, but because they demand their just privileges for their personal
protection and comfort."

Of the illustrious ones who laid the foundations for the liberation of
the slave, the name of Harriet Beecher Stowe leads all the rest.

What America's greatest woman did towards making freedom possible, our
devoted and consecrated women teachers have been carrying out these
thirty years to the full Christian conclusion. Those who read the
records of the closing days of our schools in this present August number
of THE MISSIONARY will be reminded how these faithful teachers are still
engaged completing the unfinished work of their greater sister.

Next to "Uncle Tom's Cabin," perhaps the book which has the truest stamp
of the genius of Mrs. Stowe is her "Old Town Folks." In her incomparable
description of "School Days in Cloudland," in which she shows how her
sympathies went out to the people of every nation and tongue who are
oppressed, she compares the influences of education in New England with
a country without schoolhouses, saying: "Look at Spain at this hour and
look back at New England at the time of which I write, and compare the
Spanish peasantry with the yeomen of New England. If Spain had had not a
single cathedral, if her Murillos had all been sunk in the sea, and if
she had had, for a hundred years past, a set of schoolmasters and
ministers working together as I have described Mr. Avery and Mr.
Rossiter as working, would not Spain be infinitely better off for this
life at least? That is the point that I humbly present to the
consideration of the public."

This point which Mrs. Stowe presents to the consideration of the public,
is the one to which her younger sisters are faithfully directing their
faith and their works among a people who up to Mrs. Stowe's day never
saw a schoolhouse.

We make our tribute to the gracious memory of her whose words went out
into all the world and extended to the ends of the earth: and we ask
remembrance of those who under the same inspiration are living among the
children of these liberated ones and are taking with them the love and
wisdom of Him who was "anointed to preach the gospel to the poor, the
recovery of sight to the blind, and to proclaim the acceptable year of
the Lord."

We are sometimes asked how this work of education, which Mrs. Stowe did
more than any other person to inaugurate, is regarded by the intelligent
white people of the South. We can gladly say that we have too much
recognition and appreciation of our work among good people of the South
to be otherwise than thankful for it, and for the fact that these good
people are increasing every year in numbers and in readiness to
encourage us. We have never united in more earnest prayers for our work,
and for those who carry it on, even in our annual meetings than in our
worship in the South with many Southern pastors, and nowhere have we
heard more appreciative words respecting our work than from good people
of the South who have acquainted themselves with what we are doing and
how we are doing it. That multitudes are still unable to see and unready
to prophesy does not count. The day of appreciative recognition has not
fully come, but it has dawned, and will come by and by.

We have asked the pastors of some of our churches to give to us
sketches of the histories of those churches--their location, pastors
and membership, the condition of their members financially and otherwise,
how many have homes of their own, and what are their employments.
The details are truthful and are of value as showing the people
in their church, home, and business life.

By Mrs. Ella Gill Sedgwick.

Deer Lodge, on the Cumberland Plateau in east Tennessee, is delightfully
located. The adjacent country is highly picturesque--rocky cliffs, deep
ravines, winding wooded streams, giving beauty to the landscape. To the
eastward, stretching far in undulating lines, are the mountains, seen
through a purple mist of great beauty. We often repeat the words, "As
the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his
people." We are nearly 2,000 feet above the level of the sea, so the air
is pure and healthful. A spicy fragrance fills the air, blown down from
the pines that crown the hills.

Deer Lodge has been settled mostly by Northern people. In a religious
point of view we are divided into Congregationalists, Methodists, and
Baptists, with a few Episcopalians. There is only one church building,
however, the Congregationalists'. This is a beautiful little edifice
worthy of the growing importance of this interesting field on the
Cumberland Plateau. The church has a choice location on Ross Avenue.

On April 13, 1889, the corner-stone was laid, and on August 4 of the
same year the church was dedicated. The church has good officers and
earnest working members. The present membership is forty-one. No
hostility is shown toward our church by the members of other churches,
but all are united and recognize in every one who loves the Master a
fellow-worker in the vineyard of Christ.

The present pastor, Rev. G. Lusty, during his residence among us has
endeared himself to all. A promising work is being done in the
Sabbath-school, and we believe that from it constantly go forth many
little rills of influence that are entering the homes and bringing the
people a higher and purer life. The Christian Endeavor society is doing
a good work among the young people. The prayer-meetings held on Thursday
evenings are well attended. The growth of the church has not been rapid,
but is steady, and during its history has enjoyed some revivals of

Under the direction of the pastor's loyal wife the young people have
been gathered into a sewing-school at her home every Saturday afternoon,
and everything is done to encourage the little fingers in their attempts
to guide the needle; and we feel that here, too, is a work being done
that will bring forth fruit in the homes.

The barrels of supplies, sent to us by friends in other States, have
enabled us to assist many needy ones. While packing these missionary
boxes, if you could only see "the other end of the line" you would feel
rewarded for your gifts. The kindness done for Christ's sake will not be

The country around Deer Lodge is sparsely settled. One can travel miles
without meeting any one. The people are somewhere--where, we are unable
to tell; yet when they have an opportunity to hear preaching you will
always find many people gathered in the schoolhouse where the "meeting"
is to be held. In traveling through the surrounding country you will see
many rough log houses, with only one room and often without windows, two
doors opposite each other, one door always kept open winter and summer.
A huge fire-place is in one end of the room. If you would have a view of
humanity in its simplicity, visit one of these mountain homes. You will
find everything of the most primitive kind. The hum of the
spinning-wheel and the heavy thud of the loom will greet your ears. In
one room you will very often see several beds, while the rest of the
furniture will consist of a few wooden chairs, a table and perhaps a
cupboard, and into this one room will be gathered the whole family, the
women with old shawls over their heads, sitting by the fire chewing
tobacco, or with the invariable snuff-stick in their mouth. But
everywhere you will be treated with kindness and invariable civility.
"Come and see us," they say; "we are mighty poor folks, but we will do
the best we can." These mountaineers take life in a slow and easy way;
you cannot make them "step to Yankee time."

Last Sabbath we attended one of the afternoon services. Our road passed
for several miles through a lovely forest, with its soft shadows and
calm repose. The only sound to break the stillness was the song of the
birds. After a while we heard ringing out through the pine woods the
echo of gospel hymns. Following the sound, and wending our way a little
farther through the woods, in a quiet glen we came to the school house
where the services were to be held. Here we found an earnest, attentive
audience. In one place an outdoor meeting was held. It was a rare,
perfect day. The people came in twos and threes, finding places wherever
they could. One could almost fancy that other scene of centuries ago,
beneath the blue skies of Palestine, where, when the multitude were
gathered upon the mountain, the Master "opened His mouth and taught

Among these mountaineers are young men and women eager in their desire
for knowledge, and anxious for an opportunity to learn of a better way
of life. We believe that to the question, "What of the night?" the
answer can be given, "The morning cometh."

I cannot promise you a sketch of our commencement abounding in local
color, for, if one were afflicted with color-blindness, he would
probably be unable to discover many points of difference between
commencement at Fisk and the same exercises at an Eastern college of
about the same size.

As a mere reprint of the programs of the various anniversary exercises,
which continued for three or four days, would occupy more space than is
allowed for this article, it is evident that many things of interest
must be crowded out.

_The Department of Music_ gave a characteristic performance. Every
selection on the program was well rendered. No music but the best is
ever studied at Fisk, and the productions of the great composers are not
only well played, but also well appreciated by our students.

The exhibition given by the _Gymnastic Department_ showed that Fisk has
athletes as well as musicians. The young men went through a series of
feats which showed both agility and strength. If they fail in the work
of life, it will not be for lack of hard, well-trained muscles. This
department has been under the direction of a student for the past two

Rev. Ira Landrith, D.D., of Nashville, preached the annual "missionary
sermon." Dr. Landrith possesses true Southern eloquence, and was
listened to with marked attention. During the year he has, on several
occasions, expressed himself as heartily in sympathy with our work. Such
friendliness on the part of an influential Southerner is pleasant to

Dr. Beard, our secretary, preached the "baccalaureate sermon." He
presented in a very vivid manner the blessings to be won by those who
conquer the hindrances of life. He showed how the law of struggle is the
law of strength and of possession. The duty and necessity of overcoming
evil, as well as the rewards, were illustrated and urged.

The various alumni associations are now endeavoring to raise a fund of
one thousand dollars for the university. They are faithful to their alma

The graduating exercises of the Normal Department were largely attended,
and the thirteen young women of the class would have been listened to on
any Northern commencement platform with earnest and thoughtful
attention. President Cravath's address to them was on "The New Woman."
"The educated young colored woman of to-day," he said, "is, in a
peculiar sense, the new woman of her race." He contrasted the
opportunities of the young women before him with those which their
mothers had, and besought them to consider their peculiar
responsibilities linked with their opportunities.

For the regular college graduation exercises every seat in the spacious
chapel was filled. Plants and wild-flowers had been used to decorate the
platform, while large flags were artistically draped on either side. The
class, numbering fifteen, occupied the front seats. President Cravath,
Dr. Beard, and other guests were on the platform. The orations were,
without exception, highly creditable. The speakers chose subjects of
current interest instead of recounting the exploits of the ancient
Greeks and Romans or making Napoleon fight his battles over again for
us. They bore the marks of thoughtful and accurate study. After the
conferring of the degrees, the audience rose while the Mozart Society
rendered the Hallelujah Chorus. What a debt of gratitude we owe to
Handel for giving us that Chorus! General Fisk used to say that there
were glories and hallelujahs and amens enough in it to make several
rousing Methodist camp-meetings.

After the commencement exercises a collation was served to which all
the alumni and the parents of the students present were invited. After
the refreshments the speeches followed. These were not of the
time-honored sort. Fathers and mothers rose and told of the struggles
they had made to get their boy or girl through school. Many were the
expressions of gladness and of hope, and when President Cravath
announced that the school year was ended, all of those who had taught
felt rewarded for the toils and anxieties of a fruitful college year.

The American Missionary Association was obliged to reduce the
appropriation for our work by one-fourth this year. This has occasioned
so much extra work, care, and anxiety, but the good hand of our Heavenly
Father has been upon us, and the teachers have increased their hours in
the classroom, and kind friends and churches have lent a helping hand.
Grateful mention should be made of large assistance from the First
Congregational Church, of Washington, and of aid from young churches
with heavy burdens upon them. One devoted and steadfast friend who gave
according to her power, yea, gave beyond her power; whose means were
small, but whose charities were large, because she spent so little upon
herself, Miss Mary F. Andrews, of Millbury, has been called home during
the year. Who will take her place? I wish there were space to speak of
all who have co-operated with us by giving. Almost every gift has some
association that has made it specially cheering.

Our Anniversary Exercises received the heartiest commendation. The class
numbered eight more than four years previously. We are greatly
encouraged by the good work that our graduates are doing. May the Lord
reward all of our beloved supporters! We always pray for them and for
the Association, and for all our varied workers under its auspices, and
we ask especially that all who are interested in our work will pray for
us that Charles Wesley's petition may be fulfilled in us,

  "Write Thy new name upon my heart,
  Thy best new name of Love."

By Rev. A.W. Curtis.

Lincoln Academy is beautiful for situation, in the midst of groves of
young pine, on a considerable plateau sloping southward, overlooking
the valley of a little creek with the grand old mountain towering above
them on the farther side. A quiet restful spot removed from the
temptations of town life, four miles from the village station; just the
place for the great family home school which I found on this occasion,
Wednesday night, busy as bees preparing for the great event of the year.
The boys had put up a brush arbor in the grove near by, and provided
plenty of plank seats beneath.

We had a rousing Christian Endeavor meeting that night, the last of the
session. All of the students belong to the Senior or Junior branch, and
with the schedule topic, "The Widening of Christ's Kingdom," brought
home and made personal, "What can I do to extend Christ's Kingdom during
this vacation?" Many very practical talks were given, and many pledges
of best endeavor to this end in the home life or where they were
expecting to teach through the summer. Strange noises were heard during
the night, which the morning light explained by the covered wagons,
prairie schooners we would call them at the West, which had come in and
camped out near the spring. As the hour approached a perfect string of
nondescript vehicles bringing the whole family, and many others on
muleback or on foot, came pouring in from near and far, until by 10 A.M.
nearly one thousand people had gathered in and around the arbor; some of
them coming from thirty to fifty miles overland.

"Old Glory" had been floating from the flagstaff above the central
school building all the morning, and now the scholars, neatly dressed,
came marching up the hill and crowded the platform to sing their welcome
song. Prayer was offered by one of the first graduates, now a minister.
Then the principal, and lady general, gave out the orders for the day in
such a womanly and winning way as showed her fully mistress of the

"No _smoking_ anywhere on the school-grounds; no changing of seats
during any exercise; no selling of liquors or even ice cream, lemonade,
or other refreshments--not because these latter were not good in
themselves, but because of the temptation to spend money which they
could not afford in these hard times, and while complaining that they
could not raise money for the schooling of their children, they must not
spend their nickels in such ways. Take care of their nickels and they
would soon count up to dollars."

Several hucksters and peddlers, who had come with their wares, the
principal succeeded in driving off, and in a region where whisky has
flowed freely and smoking is almost their vital breath, she that day had
an orderly assemblage of nearly a thousand, on uncomfortable seats,
quiet and interested for four and a half hours without any intermission!

It was a very carefully prepared program; speeches, essays, recitals,
dialogues, and such splendid singing as only these trained voices of
colored students can give. It was no easy matter to speak so as to be
heard by such a crowd in the open air, but every girl as well as boy
succeeded admirably, and all showed most careful training and drill. The
themes chosen were very practical and fitted to the occasion.

Tobacco got rough and fearless handling, and liquor-drinking was rebuked
in almost every conceivable way and rubbed in repeatedly. The old and
the modern ways of teaching were compared and illustrated; indeed, every
recitation was evidently selected with reference to its moral effect.

Certainly these huge commencement gatherings are themselves educators
for the fathers and mothers and kinsfolk of these young people, whom
they are proud to see doing so well. The words of all the songs were
thoroughly learned, so they will do service in many another gathering
wherever these students may be. It was the writer's privilege to give
the commencement address on "Making the best use of life as God's plan
for our highest good."

Thursday night we held a parting communion service with the
Congregational Church, which is mainly composed of students. The maps
shown me and many of their examination papers were exceptionally good.
Last winter mumps and measles successively swept through the school, and
at one time made the home almost a hospital, but the brave teachers went
through all, kept up recitations with the well ones, and nursed the sick
and brought them all safely through without the expense of a doctor. Now
all were well and evidently thriving on good food, though it is marvel
to me how good board can be afforded with tuition, and all expenses
covered for $4.50 per month, and yet work be furnished to most of them
for one-third of that, bringing the cash outlay to _ten cents a day!_
but they do it, and a happier household I have never seen than those who
gather at Lincoln Academy.

A white man with whom I was talking at the station said, "Those lady
teachers are doing a great work for this whole region."

By Miss Amelia Merriam.

The fact that with the graduation of the class of '96 our school would
complete its first decade, added interest to the occasion.

One member of the class has been in the school from its organization. In
the class history she gave quite a vivid description of those trying
days when the building at Quitman, Ga., where the school was first
gathered, was burned to the ground, as the result of hostile feeling on
the part of the citizens of the place. Certainly there has been progress
toward a just appreciation of the work of the American Missionary
Association in the communities where its work has been done, as seen in
the kindly feeling toward the school manifested in various ways by the
people of Thomasville.

Of the six graduates, five are young women; three of these begin their
work of teaching in country schools immediately. One, the valedictorian
of the class, has already written something in regard to her
surroundings. At the place, which is the best in the neighborhood, where
she was to board--if the word may be used in connection with such a
state of things--she writes that there is almost nothing in the way of
necessities for decent living. There is not a lamp in the house; not
even a tallow candle, the room in which the family eat and sleep being
lighted only by building a fire upon the hearth. Of such an article as a
towel they apparently do not know the use; and the one basin in which
she washed her hands serves for various other domestic purposes. Almost
the only household appliances are two ovens, as they are called--two
flat-bottomed, shallow iron kettles, with iron covers, and legs a few
inches long. Under these kettles, out of doors, the fire is made, and
coals put upon the flat covers. In this way the hoe-cake is baked in
one, while the bacon is fried in the other. These two viands, with an
occasional mess of greens or potatoes, constitute the bill of fare month
in and month out. No wonder the poor girl lost her appetite. She was
supplied from the Home with what she needed to make herself comfortable
in the one very small room which she is fortunate enough to have to

It is from country places like these that we wish to bring scholars into
the school. The truth is that the young people in these communities are
too ignorant to have any desire for anything different from what they
now have. Here is an almost limitless home missionary field, to be
worked by the graduates of our schools. These teachers are good
object-lessons, showing what an education, including a knowledge of
homemaking, as well as what is learned from books, can do for boys and
girls like themselves.

We rejoice in the fact that when the school closed, all of the girls in
the Hall were professedly disciples of Christ, and will, we believe, go
back to their homes to be better daughters and more helpful members of
the communities so much in need of the influences which we trust they
will exert.

Five of our scholars connected themselves with our church at the last
communion service.

The closing exercises at Saluda Seminary took place on Friday evening,
May 1. Visitors overflowed the schoolrooms before the appointed hour.
After the introductory march had been rendered by one of the music
pupils on the beautiful Estey piano which adorned the platform, there
was not a standing place left for seeing nor hearing. The young people
kept everybody interested and pleased for three hours, by readings,
recitations, instrumental music, and songs. "The Delsarte Children," a
drill by eight little girls, whose motions were accompanied with strains
of music, was prettily and accurately presented, and was much

A cantata, "THE VOICES OF NATURE," was presented by the Juniors, and was
an interesting and pleasing feature of the evening, and showed that
careful instruction had been given by the teacher of music. Two well
prepared essays were read by their authors; one for, and the other
against, "Woman Suffrage."

The "SALUDA HERALD," a paper of thirty-two pages, published by the
pupils of the school, was read by four of its editors. This paper
contained many good things in the form of prose, poems, puns, and
puzzles. It abounded in wit and good humor. Its production was a credit
to the young people and added much to the enjoyment of the visitors; and
it was also unmistakable evidence that the young people attending this
school are taught to think and to write their thoughts with grammatical
accuracy, and also to give intelligent vocal expression to the same.
Saluda is highly favored in having this excellent school within its

By Prof. A.T. Burnell.

The year 1895-6 will be long remembered by all connected with Burrell
School, Selma, Ala., for the widespread religious interest gathering in
nearly half of those attending in March; for the continued increase of
enrolment, especially in the grammar and normal grades; and the closing
of this year will be remembered as a great and successful financial
endeavor, which netted for the school fifty dollars--"one jubilee
share." It is to be said that Selma is a generous town, when
entertainments come as at this season for the colored schools here.
Burrell presented one for the primaries, in which an entire grade
appeared upon the stage, some children impersonating trees planted by
other children and growing as by magic, while still others played "hide
and seek" about the trees or built nests therein.

On the second programme, intermingled with the usual dialogues and
"speeches" so loudly demanded by all pupils, there were the essays of
three who had completed the tenth grade, and some excellent music, with
shadow pictures, etc.

But the chief interest centered in the drama, that brought a crowded
house on Wednesday evening, and was repeated the next week.

Public examinations were held for three days, beginning Friday the 22d,
when a good number of friends visited the different rooms, noted the
work of the pupils, and shared with the teachers the quizzing of the
pupils, who seemed to enjoy their part. Not the least interesting
because thoroughly practical was the display of garments, stitching and
mending in the sewing-room; and, in the blacksmith and the carpenter
shops, articles manufactured by the boys. The school ground gives
evidence of workmen--attending to fences, repairs on buildings, a shop,
and two pump-shelters erected.

The catalogue just issued lists 287 students, a gain of twenty-four per
cent. in two years; gives a history of Burrell from its start in 1869,
and among former students names all the lady teachers of the city
school, besides five on other faculties in Selma.

Skyland Institute at Blowing Rock, N.C., has during the year continually
had in mind the saying, "Children should be seen and not heard," and so
has not lifted up her voice to report her work. But the child is now six
years old, is growing in beauty and strength, and needs some attention.

The year has been one of good things. Our pupils have been of a better
class than in previous years, and better adapted to go out and teach.
Our attendance has been more regular, our tuition has been paid as a
rule, and, although epidemics have prevailed all about us, we have lived
under the banner of the ninety-first Psalm and "no evil has befallen

Our closing exercises consisted of reports from our different
organizations by a representative from each; class histories, and an
industrial exhibit on Tuesday afternoon, June 2. The following morning
Rev. J.L. Murphy gave us an address on the topic, "Wanted--A Man." It
was able, interesting, and inspiring. Mr. Murphy has for several years
been president of a girls' college in Hickory, N.C., and we were
fortunate in securing his services.

We have more applications for places in our home and school next year
than we have places, and just as soon as _that debt_ is paid, the North
will hear a lusty cry from this child for _room, more room_.

The Joseph K. Brick Agricultural, Industrial and Normal School, located
at Enfield, N.C., celebrated its first anniversary May 29. It was a
noteworthy occasion for many who had not before visited the old
plantation under the new regime.

The exercises began at eight o'clock p.m., but as early as three o'clock
the people began to gather. They came on foot, in ox carts, wagons and
on bicycles. They were plain farmers, young teachers, politicians and
merchants. All were enthusiastic in their interest in the school. The
exercises were full of interest and the outlook for another year never
seemed brighter. Another year, God willing, we will show a great

Our school closed its doors on the night of the 26th of May. All went
away saying "It was the best commencement Lincoln has ever had." I
heartily endorse the opinion. There were seven graduates--six young men
and one young woman. There were six orations, and all were so good that
a higher institution might well be proud of them. At our Social meeting
on the morning of the 26th, we had pleasant talks and addresses, after
which the industrial work, papers on nursing and examination papers were
exhibited. There were dresses, aprons, undergarments, sets of
button-holes, quilts, skirts, cushions, specimens of darning and
patching, and various fancy articles, some of them exceedingly well
done. We also had delicate work from the kindergarten and primary rooms;
paper folding and card sewing, showing great neatness of little fingers.

Among other papers of interest were those from the general history
class. Each pupil selected some country or character for review, and so
our work extended from old China and Egypt to modern Africa. One young
man writing on the last named country was induced to give the article to
the State through the newspapers and it has been published.

Some of our young people are teaching, and others are at other work.
There are very few summer schools here now, and those opened are only
for primary grades.

The Lincoln school is reaping honors at Tougaloo University. Two
scholarships this year were won by two of our ex-graduates, and this
gives Lincoln the honor of five such prizes won in that institution.

We shall greatly rejoice when the pulpits and places of great
responsibility are filled with intelligent leaders. We cannot but feel
amused, yet distressed, at the mis-read Scriptures. One brother in his
morning lesson from the pulpit said: "Brothers, we should be of the same
mind--_one body_ and mind, for it says here, 'the twins shall be one
flesh.'" A young man came to us, and asked help in writing his sermons.
He had no Bible; I urged his purchasing one, as he could read. One day
he came and said his text was the 14th of John. I inquired the passage.
"Oh," he said, "I takes the whole chapter, and so I don' have to say
much." It surely was the best way for his audience.

Our class motto was "The Future needs us," and I trust all the class
will fully realize how much they are needed.

By a Teacher.
Andersonville, Ga.

A woman came in this evening to sell strawberries which were neatly
covered with a bit of white cloth. She looked around our sitting-room
and shook her turbaned head, saying, "I sure would be afraid to live in
this house." "Why," I asked, curious to know what fearful thing she saw
in her glance. "Oh, it's so big, and has so many rooms." Our cozy home,
so snug, with not an inch of unused room, that we call our "Bird's
Nest!" Alas for the people that do not feel at home save in a one-roomed
cabin, and do not feel the necessity of work unless they are hungry. I
long so, sometimes, for something that will make this people hungry and
thirsty for better things, that will make them dissatisfied with the
things that content them now. The longing is _sure_ to come, if we can
have patience to wait.

A woman a short distance away lives in a house whose roof lets in the
water in streams during a heavy rain. She called on us in the spring so
hoarse that she could hardly speak. A few questions brought out the
trouble, and revealed the fact that she owned a pile of lumber near by.
I asked her why they did not repair it. She thought it too old, and the
reason she gave for not building a new one was that she was waiting for
her "old man" to begin. I found that her daughter was teaching school in
the country, and had $25 already due her that she could use for the
work. I told her to have one room put up at once, and build others as
she had money. She thought a little, then said, "Tell me all about it,
and I'll do just as you say." Now the room is nearly finished (not
ceiled or plastered, for such extras are almost unknown), and a prouder
woman would be hard to find. All are not so willing to be taught, but I
rejoice over every improvement.

By Miss Edith Leonard.

The last busy days of the school year are over. We have gathered the
first fruits of our work; we hope there will be a greater harvest in
years to come.

At the communion service, on June 7, three of our pupils were received
into the church. The next Thursday came the evening of declamations,
recitations, and music, for which the pupils had been preparing. During
the last four weeks it was a common thing to find a boy declaiming to an
imaginary audience in the schoolroom, or to find a girl reciting in
some secluded spot in the yard, or on the hills in the pasture. In most
schools that is nothing worthy of remark, but to us it shows that the
young people are beginning to feel that their success depends on their
own efforts.

When the evening came we had an enjoyable entertainment. The house was
decorated with the tall, graceful stems of the Solomon's Seal, and the
platform had a rug and potted plants upon it, and our two beautiful
flags draped behind it.

Among the recitations, "Betty, the Bound Girl," and "The Peril of a
Passenger Train," were well rendered. Lowell's "A Day in June" was given
with a pleasant voice and manner that fitted the poem. There was an
organ solo, an organ duet, and a sprightly little song by a quartet,
"All Among the Barley." Among the best things were part of an address by
Channing on "Distinction of Mind and Material Forms," and one by
Mitchell on "The First View of the Heavens." The thoughts were noble and
nobly expressed, and the young men delivered them with thoughtfulness
and appreciation, which made us glad, especially as these addresses were
their own choice.

Immediately after these exercises we all adjourned to the dining room
to see what the girls had done in their little missionary society. Here
was a table gay with pretty articles they had made. Among them were a
nice comfortable, some embroidered doilies, chair pillows, handkerchief
cases, and other things. Most of them were quickly sold. There was also
ice-cream and cake for sale. The girls took about seventeen dollars by
their fair, and the proceeds are to go to the A.M.A.

The next day was the last. We planned to have an exhibition of school
and industrial work during the forenoon, and parade of cadets in the
afternoon. And, in order to give the pupils a little uplift of
enthusiasm in a good cause, we arranged to have a Christian Endeavor
rally of societies from five neighboring towns, and also to invite the
members of two Sunday-schools that are bravely "lifting the gospel
banner," each in a scattered community near by, where there is no

The people began to arrive about half-past ten. One party came in a
large farm wagon made gay with flags.

We hastened to take them about. In the blacksmith shop, two young men
who had been in school only a year, were making some steel nut-crackers.
A table covered with hooks, bolts, chains, towels, ice-picks, etc.,
represented the work done during the year. In the printing office, the
boys were turning the press, and printing our Indian paper. The
carpenter-shop exhibit contained some neat boxes, tables, and cabinets,
and here some small boys were at work making joints. In the cooking
school, the girls were making biscuits, coffee, and corn-bread, while
the table was covered with nice loaves of bread, cake, rolls, and
cookies, made the day before. Here, also, the girls' sewing was
displayed. There was a neat set of doll's clothing, a doll's mattress,
pillows, sheets, and pillow-cases, a number of boys' shirts ready for
use in the school, beside other clothing for the girls.

The primary schoolroom contained clay animals, weaving and sewing done
by the kindergarten class, and some neat language and number work by the
older pupils. The other schoolrooms also had illustrated language work,
examination papers, maps on paper and in sand, and a collection of
botanical specimens.

About seventy-five visitors came from neighboring towns. They enjoyed
looking at the school work, and they enjoyed their lunch under the
trees, and the marching and drilling of the boys with their wooden guns.

But the best thing in the day was the meeting in the afternoon. Our
Christian Endeavor guests, with the school and some of the agency people
and neighboring Indians, filled the chapel full. Several of the
societies had pretty banners, and it was inspiring to see them come
marching in. The meeting was just a warm-hearted Christian Endeavor
meeting. Each society responded by a verse of Scripture recited in
concert, or a song, or by the words of some member chosen to represent
them. There was also time for volunteer prayers and testimonies, and a
number of songs. We were all glad to be there--glad to belong to a great
army of Christian workers--and we believe our boys and girls will not
forget it, but that the thoughts of that hour will help to make them

After these guests went home, there yet remained the principal's
reception in the evening, where the school gathered with our Agency and
Indian friends, to talk a little while and say goodbye. There was one
delightful little surprise when Dr. Riggs called up thirteen of the
Indian girls and gave to each, as a reward for faithful, successful work
in bread-making, a copy of a cook-book to take home with her. The pupils
enjoyed all these last days, but especially the Christian Endeavor
rally, and we shall remember this year's close as our Christian Endeavor

The following letter was written by a young man who was converted in our
Chinese school in Salt Lake City. It is a notification to his teacher of
his arrival in China. It is interesting as a suggestion of the
far-reaching influences of our Chinese work:

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
ISYS search  means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
