dom of the Bishop and the great men and women associated
in the enterprise.  The debt on this building is being re-
duced considerably.  The University was never in better
condition or had a more hopeful outlook. Rev. R. E.
Wall is financial officer; Rev. E. G. Jones, secretary; Rev.
B. H. Williams, president of the executive board.
     Edward Waters' College, Jacksonville, Florida.
   We have been unable to secure information from this
school further than has been gained through the papers;
this we regret. It is known that under the administration
 of Bishop Handy the building was all consumed in the great
fire which nearly destroyed the city of Jacksonville. This
came near blotting out the Institution, but under the ad-
ministration of Bishop Tanner it was somewhat resusci-
tated and in the present quadrennium, under the adminis-
tration of the genial Bishop Salter, it has been reorganized
and is hastening to a satisfactory condition. A large build-
ing has been erected. Harmony in the State, a good faculty,
and the Rev. A. W. Attaway at the head as president, as-
sure success.
      Wayman Institute, Harrodsburg, Kentucky.
  Professor W. E. Newsome is fast increasing the useful-
ness of this Institution.  The Church in Kentucky has
awakened to its opportunity and risen to its duty. Bishop
Shaffer, with forceful leading, is conducting them along
planes of better understanding and higher realizations.
Turner Normal and Industrial Institute, Shelbyville,
                       Tennessee.
  Rev. James A. Jones, A. M., D. D., has been president
of this school four years. Under his administration it
has increased in strength and numbers yearly. The en-
trance of Bishop H. Blanton Parks on the field will increase
the interest of the people and consequently the amount of
support.
  The enrollment during the past year was about one hun-
dred and seventy.
