We have recently received a copy of a will made by a colored woman in Texas, bequeathing all her property to the American Baptist Home Mission Society for the benefit of ministerial students at Bishop College, Texas. This good example is one that we are pleased to record and that we hope will be followed by others. It is especially valuable as an evidence of the interest taken by our colored people in education.

Bishop College, Marshall, Texas.

BY ALBERT LOUGHRIDGE, PRESIDENT.

We opened school, October 1th, with much improved surroundings. With the exception of two weeks in September, I have spent the entire summer vacation on the campus, superintending repairs and improvements to property. As a result, the buildings and grounds are in considerably better condition than for several years. The new laboratory is in order and much of the new apparatus in place. We hope soon to have several hundred new books on the library shelves. Altogether, we feel that our facilities are greatly improved.

Our new teachers—Miss Hodges, preceptress, and Miss English, music teacher—take hold of their work finely. Mr. S. J. Brown, B.A., a young colored man, who recently graduated from the Iowa State University and made a record for excellent scholarship, has been added to our teaching force.

Our Latin teacher, Prof. J. R. E. Lee, B. A., who graduated from Bishop and has been a faithful teacher here, resigned in September to accept a position as teacher of mathematics at Tuskegee, Ala. He is an energetic worker, and we shall miss him greatly. The board has already taken steps to supply his place.

We open with an enrollment about as large as last year. We had expected a falling off in attendance, due to the great floods of the early summer and drought of August and September and consequent loss of crops. Under such circumstances, we regard the attendance as evidence of increasing desire of the people for education, and are glad and take courage.

We are greatly pleased with the character of the students who have come to us. They are quiet and orderly, and give evidence of studious habits. We anticipate a good year's work with such a body of young people, and feel that good scholarship and strong Christian character may be realized in the development of many of them. This is our constant aim.

Theological Seminary, Richmond, Va.
