Although your writings are thought little of, and read less by
tho favored white American to-day, the time must come--it
shall come--when your writings, like those of Phillis Wheatley,
will be perused with pleasure and profit. Write on! Write
on! Young men, young women, give your thoughts to the
world; for it will be like casting bread upon the waters, it
shall return  and be gathered after many days. Yours, for.
God and the elevation of the race.

                        EDUCATION.

    BY REV. J. H. CLAY, PASTOR BETHEL CHURCH,  INDIANAPOLIS

  This term, in its simple primary sense, signifies a leading out.
It is used most generally in reference to mental or intellectual
training, though in its broadest sense it comprehends every kind
of training, whether of mind or body.  Hence, we speak of men-
tal training, moral training, physical training. We speak of a
mathematical education, a musical education, a legal, or a med-

that in a single paper little more than its bare outlines can be
touched upon; and I shall, for this reason, be compelled to
merely set forth some main features, and group together, under
leadling heads, a few thoughts that may be of interest to us all,
as we stand related to this great subject.
  In drawing out a division of the wide field before us, I have
chosen four heads, which seem to me to be natural lines of sep-

First, physical training (or education); second, intellectual train-
ing; third, moral training; fourth, religious training.  Under
these heads, then, we shall proceed to lay down what our time
and ability will allow on this great topic, so closely related to
man's best interests now, as in all time past, and in all time to
come.
  We begin our life in the school of physical training. We begin
