larged if we expect of these Bishops in Africa respectable
work. As we sow so shall we reap. It should not be a
question with us whether we are doing in Africa as much
as other churches, but whether we are doing as much as
we are obligated to do; as much as will enable us to hold
a respectable relation to the best of them.
   The property of this institution was purchased (the
contract lapsing afterward) and the school founded under
the present title by Bishop L. J. Coppin. The property
was estimated at $20,000.00. It has at present an active

with the sincerity of our purpose and the strength of our
endeavor.

  At the head of this school is the Rev. James Yappi
Tantsi, B. D., an African and a graduate of Payne Theo-
logical Seminary, Wilberforce, Ohio. Rev. Tantsi is a man
of definite purposes, correct character and high grade
intelligence. This work is entirely among natives.
       Wilberforce and Lillian Derrick Institute.
  Two of the African graduates of Wilberforce University
conduct this school, also among natives, viz. Rev. A. A.
Maxeke and his wife, Mrs. Charlotte Manye Maxeke.
  Bishop Johnson has been too short a time in Africa to
