No. 12. ATLANTA, GEORGIA. OCTOBER, 1889. THE BULLETIN OF ATLANTA UNIVERSITY Issued monthly during term time from the University printing office. Entered at the Atlanta, Ga., post office as second class mail matter. Subscriptions at 25 cents a year may be sent to the treasurer of Atlanta University, Atlanta, Ga. Atlanta University, Atlanta, Ga., Has 500 students in College, Normal, College Preparatory, Grammar, and Primary departments, with practical instruction in wood-working, iron-working, farming, printing, cooking, sewing, and nursing, under the care of 26 officers and instructors, in four large brick buildings, surrounded by 60 acres of land within the corporate limits of Atlanta, the land, buildings, and outfit valued at a quarter of a million dollars; with 200 graduates from College and Normal courses, nearly all of whom together with many hundreds of past undergraduates are engaged in teaching and other useful work in Georgia and surrounding States. Having practically no endowment, the Institution requires at least $18,000 a year in donations from its friends to continue the work now in hand and a fund of about $250,000 to put that work on a permanent basis. Remittances of checks or money orders, or in quiries for further information, may be addressed to, Pres. HORACE BUMSTEAD, D. D., Atlanta, Ga., TRUSTEES OF ATLANTA UNIVERSITY. FOR ONE YEAR. Rev.

When our barn was filled with hay at an earlier date than usual the past summer, we at once anticipated that our school rooms would be filled with students earlier than usual. When crops of unprecedented abundance and value were reported from all over Georgia, we felt confident that our treasury would reap the benefit in increased payments from students. Bo far, both expectations have been fulfilled. But our friends at the North need to remember that increased numbers involve increased expense, and that with a debt of nearly $10,000 incurred last year (the first debt in our history) that a large increase in donations must be asked for the coming year. Instead of $18,000, we must now appeal for $28,000 to meet arrears and carry our work through the year. A few changes in our corps of workers may be here recorded. Miss Margaret Neel, for many years teacher of reading and grammar, has resigned to accept a position in the Roger Williams University, of Nashville, Tenn., and her place is filled by Miss Lydia M. Hardy, of Peabody, Mass. Miss Eliza H. Merrill, after long service as teacher of geography and history, has been compelled, by the slowness of her recovery from serious illness last winter, to ask for a year's leave of absence, and her place is filled by Miss Idella M. Swift, of Boston, Mass. To render the instruction in cooking and sewing more efficient, a change has been made in the assignment of those studies, which have hitherto been taught by one teacher. Miss M. Agnes Tuck has relinquished her position as Matron in North Hall to assume the instruction in sewing and dressmaking, with the expectation of enlarging the scope of that department. The position of Matron, thus vacated, is filled by Mrs. E. L. S. Vincent, of Bridgewater, Mass., who also assumes the instruction in cooking, in addition to her other work. The position of Super- intendent of the Printing Office, left vacant by the death of Mr. Arthur L. Shumway, will be filled by Mrs. Sadie W. Ingham, of Cleveland, O. In place of Miss Julia N. Cole, resigned, Rev. Myron W. Adams, of Andover, Mass., begins his work as Instructor in Greek. Finally, Rev. John H. Hincks, of Mont-pelier, Vt., has been called to serve as Dean of the Faculty, and to take charge of the Institution in the absence of the President. It is a noteworthy point, and one full of promise for the work of the year, that the new instructors named above come to us with somewhat unusual preparation for the work they have assumed. All have had experience in teaching, and some of them for many years. Miss Hardy and Mrs. Vincent are graduates of the Bridgewater (Mass.) Normal School, and the latter has had much experience in housekeeping. Miss Tuck now assumes a department of work in which she has had a number of years of practical experience. Miss Swift is a graduate of the Framingham (Mass.) Normal School, has taken special courses of study at Harvard University, and has taught in the public schools of Boston as well as in the Deaf and Dumb Institution at Northampton, Mass. Mrs. Ingham has had extensive experience in literary and editorial labor as well as in city missionary work among the poor and needy. Mr. Adams was graduated as valedictorian of his class from Dartmouth College, and has since had four years of study in Andover and Hartford Theological Seminaries, being graduated from the latter, and has had several years of pastoral work. It is an interesting fact, also, that Mr. Adams was fitted for college in classes with colored pupils in the Preparatory Department of Wilberforce University, O., where both of his parents were teachers.
