Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
                 STATUS OF METHODISM AND CHRISTIANITY.                 155
        
        Ferguson Academy at Abbeville, S. C., has been transferred and
made over to the Board during the year.  This institution was built
and  partly supported by friends outside of the Board, at a cost of
$10,000, at which sum the property is now valued.  The Board has
aided in supporting the teachers, but it did not own the property, but
on the Board's assuming a debt of $1,631 the property has become
the Board's by deed.  It is a flourishing school with 115 pupils under
Rev.  E. W. Williams, Principal.
       At Danville, Va., the school work has also been enlarged by the
erection of a building which is now being finished at a cost of $3,000
the colored people of the church having donated and deeded to the
Board a valuable lot for the purpose.
       A building for the new boarding school for girls at Burkeville,
Va., under Rev. G. C. Campbell and wife is now under contract and
will be finished by the opening term in October next. Some $12,000
have already been raised toward this object and the ladies of the
church have pledged the remainder needed.   We have every reason
to believe this Seminary will be full from its first opening.
       We have the prospect of entering the State of Mississippi this
coming  year, a region heretofore untouched by the Board.             The
ladies  of Illinois propose to raise $6,000 toward the founding of a
boarding school for colored girls in that State to be known as the
Mary  Holmes Seminary.   About $10,000 have been secured towards
a building for this school which we hope to open as soon as prac-
ticable.    We  may also mention Brainard Institute at Chester, S. C.,
a  mixed school with its 460 pupils, young men and women, and its
efficient industrial department; Wallingford Academy at Charleston,
S.  C.,  with its 507 pupils; Beaufort Academy at Beaufort, S. C.,
with  its 572 pupils, and Richard Allen Institute at Pine Bluff, Ark.,
with  its 250 pupils all of which are doing good work for the uplifting
of the colored race. Our report will show many other important
schools  to which we have not space to call attention which are also
doing a noble work for the race.
      From these statements it will be at once seen that our educational
work has been greatly enlarged and strengthened during the past year,
and we may reasonably expect these institutions to do a larger and
