with one of the schools of the  Freedmen's Aid
Society.

 Morristown Normal and Industrial College
  Morristown Normal and Industrial College
is located on a high eminence on the east side
of the city of Morristown, Tennessee.  Its
seven buildings, with the fifty-acre campus on
which they stand, are valued at over $105,-
000.  Recently, through a gift of $19,500 from
a friend, the president has been enabled to pur-
chase a 300-acre farm near by, where the be-
ginnings of agricultural training are being
made, and on which he expects to develop a
department of agriculture worthy of any for
colored people in the South. The industrial,
domestic science, and normal departments have
from the beginning been emphasized at Morris-
town. A foundry, machine shop, and broom
factory constitute the leading industries taught
here.  It has twenty-two teachers and 339
students.
              New Jersey Home
  On the same ground is located the New
Jersey Home of the Woman's Home Missionary
Society, which ably supplements the work of
the school by training the girls in domestic
science, and giving them the higher and
broader vision and the importance of the Chris-
tian home in the development of the race.
