                    A. M. E. Church.                     15

develop these schools or to give us an adequate idea of their
value; but should he live four years, we shall know what
we have and what we are doing in South Africa.
          Our Mission Schools in West Africa.
  Bishop W. H. Heard took with him to Africa three
teachers who have begun their work under great disadvan-
tages, he having made this movement without full under-
standing as to their support. There is little doubt, how-
ever, that our good Secretary, Doctor W. W. Beckett and
the good President of the Board of Missions, Bishop Corne-
lius T. Shaffer, who, himself, has done service in West Afri-
ca, and in honor of whom one of our schools there, is named,
will see to it that the Bishop and his associates shall suffer
little in consequence. And certainly by the next Easter
Day our Church will show its interest and sympathy in an
improved support of West African work. Here is another
place where the A. M. E.  Connection  should lay down
$1,000 a year for education. The Sarah Goram School,
Sierra Leone, is the oldest of all our educational under-
takings in Africa. Shaffer Institute in Liberia promises
new life under Bishop Heard's supervision.
  There is no doubt that the President and Secretary of
the General Missionary Board will extend and enlarge the
missionary spirit this quadrennium by noting times and
places of missionary assemblies and conventions, recog-
nizing and addressing them, and to the extent of possi-
bilities, visiting them. Conference missionary conventions,
W. H. and F. conventions, P. W. M. conventions and Pre-
siding Elders' conferences and conventions as well as An-
nual Conferences, would give much larger service for
more intimate association.

            EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT.
  Professor John R. Hawkins, Secretary of Education, in
his report for the year ending May 30, 1909, presents facts
as follows:
