A new movement among colored
women of the south is the founding of
neighborhood unions. Christian wom
en are founding them, but their basic
idea is the improving of social condi
tions, with particular reference to
cleanliness in homes and yards, and
the adjustment of community troubles.
The first union was started in Atlan
ta, having for its head the wife of
President Hope of Atlanta Baptist col
lege. The idea is extending, and unions
are starting up in other southern cities.

The Presbyterian board of foreign
missions, just closing Its books, is
celebrating its seventy-fifth anniversary
this year.x Its receipts exceed $1,950,
000. In 1837, its first year, its re
ceipts were 44,O00. None of this
large amount received laet year came
from the Kennedy legacy. There has
been used during the year $750,000 of
that legacy, but It is a separate ac
count. Of the receipts last year,
which are far ahead of any previous
year $170,000 came from legacies, a
gain of $7t.000 over ordinary years,
and $200,000 from the women, raised
chiefly as result of the Women's Jubi
lee. Presbyterian women took over
from their official board, which Is con
ducted by men, certain financial tasks,
and they not only completed all of
them and raised more money than they
promised to do, but they kept up their
own receipt amounting to about $400,
000 a year. s
The Presbyterian foreign board
states, through Its treasurer, that its
only gains to be credited to larger in
terest by laymen amount to $43,000,
but it has not had time 6lnce ending
its year to ascertain whether the In
crease is due to gifts from laymen or
not The amount credited to individu
als, possibly women, year before last
was $228,000, and the amount last
year $271,000. Presbyterian churches
aa such fell off last year In their
glfta $10,000. Secretaries and treas
urer say they are unable to trace
The Presbyterian board of home
missions has broken all records in re
ceipts. Its income last year was
$1,800,000, and it has increased its
budget for next year by $100,000. Its
increase is not, it says, from churches
or from laymen, but chiefly from lega
cies. These amount to $300,000, an
unprecedented amount. Women also
increased their gifts, while maintaining
their own receipts, by about $150,000.
The lagacles go into permanent funds,
to be used when necessary to keep the
board out of debt, to be afterwards re
placed. The Northern Baptist convention,
meeting next month, will make much of
foreign mission work. It will also
report great progress in construction
of educational and other buildings for
negro work. Rev. I. E." Hicks of the
Baptist college at Rangoon, Burma;
Rev. A. F. Groesbeck of the Baptist
China work; and Rev. Dr. James H,
Franklin, foreign secretary elect will
speak for the foreign Baptist work.
Building in the south Includes a nevi
hospital at Raleigh, on grounds of
Shaw university, costing $40,000 of
which the general education board gave
$3,000 and negroes $5,000; a new Sale
building, named In memory of the late
Superintendent of Education Sale, at
Atlanta Baptist college, that cost
$40,000; and dormitories and resi
dences at Virginia Union seminary at
Richmond, that cost $50,000. More and
more the general education board Is
assisting colored work, is encouraging
negroes to serve on managing boards,
and together with the Baptist society
is getting large gifts from negroes for
their own work.
It is the purpose to establish a new
magazine, the expenses underwritten
by friends of foreign missions, that will
discuss the higher phases of mission
work, particularly from the point of
