Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
              STATUS OF METHODISM AND CHRISTIANITY.        93

    The total number of male colored teachers in the United States is
11,115.  If we estimate that the annual salary is $600. 00 each, we have
then as their annual support, the amount that goes to support their
families, $6,669,000.00.
    The female colored teachers,5,750 at an annual salary of $300.00,
would give us the sum $1,725,000.00.
    The grand total salary would be $8,394,000.00.
    This amount of money is divided among the 16,865 teachers in
our colored schools.
    We have 17,722 schools. Thus we only lack 957 teachers to en-
able us to man the school houses in numbers at least.
    I would stand at the cradle of every colored boy and girl in the
land and bid them to awake from their slumber, put on their clothes
and shoes, prepare their toilet, eat an early breakfast,  throw  their
satchel of books on their shoulders and hasten to the school-house and
remain until they have secured a parchment of graduation. Again, I
would say to them, take the spelling-book as a constant companion,
until they could speak the English language with ease, elegance, en-
ergy and variety.  Study  the Holy Bible, its history, authenticity,
philosophy, poetry and institutions; study the mineral, vegetable and
animal kingdom; study the heavens above and below; study the man,
physically, morally intellectually and spiritually; study self morning,
noon and night.
    The following will show what the colored people were doing for
themselves towards removing the illiteracy of the nation in
1886-'87.--Normal schools...........................................   16
