and he is evidently taking advantage of his op-

outskirts of Marshall the fourteen handsome
buildings of this school prominently loom up
before every visitor to the city. The whole
property is valued at $190,000, with $10,000
additional for equipment.  Here is one of the
places where Mr. Andrew Carnegie saw fit to
make a gift of $10,000 for a library.  This
school is one of the few in the South whose
graduates are entitled to teachers' certificates
without examination in nearly all of the States.
No wonder that our Texas colored Methodists
are proud of Wiley, and send their children
there to be educated.   The  future of that
whole territory is wrapped up in the work of
this college. The student body numbers 332,
with eighteen teachers.
