                    A. M. E. Church.                  31

thousand dollars.  The annual report for 1908-9 shows re-
ceipts as follows:
  Total receipts for year ending February 28, '09, $1103.27.
           Institutional Church, Chicago, Ill.
  The report of Rev. H. E. Stewart, superintendent of this
institution, shows the receipts to be about Five thousand
dollars a year. This comes by donations of individuals,
collections from churches and receipts for service. A
kitchen garden class and day nursery are maintained the
year round. The purchase price of this institution is paid
in annual installments by the Financial Board and Church
Extension Board, jointly, in equal shares.
Demerara Missionary and Industrial Institute, George-
        town, Demerara, British Guiana, S. A.
  This modest institution was established by the Rev. P.
Alpheus Luckie, a graduate of Payne Theological Seminary,
Wilberforce, Ohio. Mr. Luckie is a native of Demerara.
In 1899, when Bishop Lee held a Conference in Demerara
Mr. Luckie arranged to come to America to study. While
in this country he made friends of several persons of
considerable wealth and benevolence, as he did also in Eng-
land, which country he visited before returning to his home
on the completion of his education.
  Through their aid he erected a building and opened the
school. After two years however the building was destroy-
ed by a cyclone. He is now making efforts to rebuild.
With the cultured Mistress Luckie and the assistance of
Mr. Sidney A. Monroe, former tutor in the Demerara Mis-
sionary Industrial Institute, friends in the United States,
and the great Church which Mr. Luckie sustains so well
by his endeavors, a new building should be erected soon.
It is stated that Bishop Shaffer contemplates a visit to
Demerara. It may be hoped that arrangements will be
made then to re-erect the building and renew the work of
the school.
