    THE CHEYNEY INSTITUTE FOR COLORED YOUTH.


   The Institute for  Colored  Youth, Cheyney. Pa., is maintaining one
of the best summer  schools in the country.  The work and methods of
instruction last summer  were so interesting and beneficial that many of
the teachers were sorry when closing time came.
   Unfortunately, the Management  was confronted by the same problem
of lack of accommodation, this year as last.
   A large number of Southern teachers, anxious for the best profes-

they are careful to select instructors who combine intelligent preparation
with practical experience.
   In the faculty last summer were represented some of the best ideas
of the Massachusetts schools, Teachers' College, Columbia University,
Chicago State Normal, University  of Pennsylvania, and Smith  College.
