               Thayer Home.
  Thayer Home, located on the same campus,
is one of the most successful and prosperous
of the model homes for colored girls carried on
by the Woman's Home Missionary Society.
The influence of this Home on the girls at Clark
is felt today in scores of parsonages and hun-
dreds of other homes where graduates of
Clark and Thayer have gone.

               Bennett College
  Bennett College, Greensboro, North Carolina,
is located about one mile from the center of
the city, on a beautiful site of nineteen acres.
With its six buildings, the whole is valued at
$43,500, and has an equipment worth $3,000.
In addition to the ordinary work of training
teachers and Christian leaders, the school
grounds furnish excellent opportunity for agri-
cultural instruction.  The attendance is 210,
with 17 teachers.

                 Kent Home.
  Kent Home, with its new and attractive
brick building, occupies a corner lot adjoining
BennettCollege. It is neat,clean, and up-to-date
in all of its appointments. A large number of
the girl students in Bennett live here, and are
trained in all the domestic arts. No greater
good can be done for the colored people at the
present time than the training of the home-
makers of the future. This is admirably done
at Kent Home.
