The name adopted ia The Kansas Home and Mission for Chil dren of African Descent" This cor poration is to continue for a period of ninety-nine Tears. What has been known as "Miss Wilson's Mission School' is thus to become a chartered institution to be conducted npon enlarged plans. The authority will be vested in the board of directors who, through their execu tive committee and officers, will as sume all responsibility with referenco . to the use of funds for this work. It bas been efficiently conducted up to this time, bnt has reached that point where enlarged work and opportuni ties demand enlarged powers. Tho friends of the institution' nave been working to this end for over a year. It la to be carried on nnder the aus pices of the Presbyterian church in the United 8tates of America. Its ob ject will be to furnish children, above specified, with christian culture, a t boron irh elementary education in the English branches and efficient tralu ing in the various manual industries. There is no cause more urgent in connection with missionary eSorts in our own country. This ia, we believe, the only practical method for tho solu tion of the problem which is engaging leading minds at the north aa well as at the south.
