We are informed that 31 out of 36 teachers in the Atlanta colored public; schools are from Atlanta University. ------------•-----------— The present number of The Bulletin is the last number that will be issued till the beginning' of the school year, in October. ------------»------------ A typographical error in our last makes the special donations for the printing press for the year $368.03, instead of $268.03. With what was .contributed last year, the sum now amounts to $382.44. In anticipation of the full amount needed ($400.00) being raised, we have for some months had a press on trial and have lately agreed to keep it. The press is a Wharfdale Cylinder, from the Atlanta Constitution office, in good condition and cost, originally, $2,200. It will not only serve for all present purposes, but also give us facilities for enlargement of the field of our printing department which we may anticipate in the future. It will be seen that there is needed but $17.56 to complete the purchase, and we would be glad if we might receive this amount, from any one or more of those especially interested in this object, before long, and thus be enabled to close up the transaction. The kind interest exhibited in this special object by different friends is greatly appreciated, and it is with great satisfaction that we are able to announce that we have come into the possession of this important piece of equipment. -------------------------------------------------------•-----------------------------------------------------¦ OUR TWENTY-FIRST YEAR. Our twenty-first year closes under decidedly favorable circumstances. It has been a year of unprecedentedly large attendance, of exemption from any serious illness among teachers and students— a marked contrast, in this respect, to the previous year, in which two teachers and three students were removed by death—a year in which uniform good order and a general spirit of sympathy with proper authority has prevailed throughout the school, in which excellent work has been done by teachers and students, and a year which has been marked by large religious interest. Financially, the year has been more prosperous than the last, which left us burdened with $10,000 debt. There was a prospect, some time ago, of a large deficiency, but the response of friends to special appeals has reduced the amount to a comparatively small sum and we hope for such further responses yet to come as to make up the amount still need- . ed. Will not friends who have not already done so, contribute without delay for this purpose ? With this sum made up, the deficiency of $10,000 incurred last year still remains to be provided for, President Bumstead's severe and protracted 0 illness having came in to thwart his efforts to raise this amount, in addition to the amount needed for current expenses. This illness, with its resulting disadvantages, together with President Bumstead's enforced absence, have been the only untoward events of the year. But we are glad to be able to say that President Bumstead is now convalescent, and be- fore the fall term begins—perhaps a good while before—it is hoped he will be able to resume his work with his old time energy and devotion, though tempered, his associates trust, with a discretion which will lead him to spare himself more. Meantime, we would suggest that the sooner his friends, and those of this Institution, contribute toward the making up of this $10,000, the speedier will be his complete recovery, the longer the rest he so much needs, and the stronger-hearted all connect"d with this Institution for the great work in which they are engaged. We confidently hope and anticipate being furnished the means with which to do an even better work next year than we have this.
