Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
         STATUS OF  METHODISM AND CHRISTIANITY.        105

"I realize more the importance of this work as I learn how close is
the connnection between comfortable homesteads and virtuous lives.
The young women  are more independent have powers of usefulness,
either as teachers, wives or mothers."
    Miss S. B. Packard, principal of Spellman Female Institute, At-
lanta, Ga., ( Women's Baptist Home Mission ) had in charge for the
school year, 1886-87. 640 girls and young women.
    Miss Packard says: "Instead of losing in intellectual develop-
ment, there is a decided gain in the rough, because of the industrial
work.  The training of the eve and hands not only increases the
power of observation and gives precision to their work but prepares
them for homes of their own."
     President Price, one of the foremost men of the negro race in the
country, Livingstone College, Salisbury, N. C., (African Methodist
Episcopal Zion Church ) says: "I feel that industrial training is im-

of successful work,  might be extended through whole pages of this

     Christian schools that train heads, hearts and hands, can in the
long run, solve almost any problem for any race."
     At Atlanta University twelve forges have been added to the
equipment and mechanical drawing, and both placed under the charge
of a graduate of the School of Technology, of Worcester, Mass.   The
students have fitted up two rooms as a part of their training.  Nearly
120 boys have had instruction in the shops for one and a half hours.
A printing press has been given, and farm work, cooking and sewing
have been carried on as before.
     At Clarke University the  "Ballard Ship " has been completed.
The building, costing $5500, is 40X100, and is built of bricks. In the
carriage shop wood and iron work, trimming and printing are exten-
sively carried on, the net returns being for the year about $2000.
From the work of the nine boys in the harness shop $350 have been
obtained.   In the printing shop much job work has been done.       In
