Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
             STATUS OF METHODISM AND CHRISTIANITY.                175

four teachers trained in the missions were engaged in teaching in the
public schools of at least 14 States, with an aggregate enrollment of
14,300. The Sabbath schools conducted by these teachers have an
enrollment quite as large.  Of these teachers 150 are from Knoxville
College, 51 from Thyne Institute, Chase City, 25 from Norfolk, and
8 from Bluestone.  The total net membership in the congregations is
322.
    Thanks are due to the Women's Board for their prompt and
effective action in providing the Chase City Mission with a building
for the "Girls' Industrial Home," and the Knoxville Mission with a
building for a "Little Boys' Home," both buildings being completely
furnished; the total cost of buildings and furnishing being a little more
than $14,000. This same Board generously placed at our disposal
sufficient funds to pay the salary of the Bible reader, Miss Sarah Den-
nison, at Norfolk, Va. Your Board gave to the Women's Board a
mortgage deed on the buildings above named to secure the re-payment
to their treasurer of the above named amount in case the property
should at any time cease to be used for "charitable or educational
purposes" connected with work among the freedmen.
