Zion’s opening service in the new church was in every way the magnifl cent success which its dearest friends had hoped. The outpouring of the people w-as everything that could have been desired. In each of the three services during the day the crowd fill ed both the main and second auditor lums. There were fully one thousand persons at the morning service. Th« house was beautifully decorated with (lags, palms and potted plants. Dr Cohron was at his best and preacher two splendid sermons to the deligh of the congregations. Zion's triumpl was the culmination of more than tei years of expectation and endeavor. The rally was also a magnificent ex pression of the people’s generosit; and gratitude. The total offerings fo the day exceeded $2,500. That thi huge sum could have been raised a' this time of the year and during thes< hard times is another evidence o: Zion's strength. Our mark was set at $3,000, and there is little question that the remaining S4OO will be forthcom ing during the next few weeks. At the Wednesday night meeting about $10(j additional was pledged toward the raising of this balance. The pastor desires to take this means to thank the pastors and con gregations who so graciously respond ed to our invitation and whose help and encouragement so greatly contrib uted to this glorious end. The funeral of Deacon Perkins, one of Zion’s most active and influential officers, and for many years a leader In the city’s church affairs, was held from the church last Friday afternoon r Oie place w'hich he has held in the cnurch and community will not soor be filled.

Ingram For Educational Uplift. Sparta. Gn.—Sltuutcd one mile from this town, in a community where live 50.000 colored people and beautifully located on slxty-Uve acres of land, is the Sparta Industrial school, for the Industrial education of colored boys and girls, founded in 1008 by Profes sor L. S. Ingraham. The school is meeting the needs of this section in a most commendable way. and there has been a decided change in the conduct of the community since it began its work. Perhaps there is no ruraltorhool of the south that is doing more to as sist in the development of the youth of the race than tills Institution. In the school are about 200 students, who are becoming efficient in dressmaking, plain sewing, cooking, basketry and laundering for the girls and carpentry, blacksmithing and brick masonry for tbe boys. To meet the growing needs of tbe ichool an effort Is being made to raise SIO,OOO with which to erect a building ndequate to meet the demands of the community. The building is to serve as a dormitory and mu in recitation hall.'- The institution has met the hearty indorsement of the leading white citizens of the community. Dr. J. 11. Dillard of the .lean's fund board has itiude a study of tho work and has given Ids approval of the school to the Jean's fund and other ed ucational agencies. Before the open ing of the school In tills community the beat feeling did not exist between the races. The school has been able to change this condition to one of much friendliness. POTENT FORCES IN EDUCATION Government Aids in New School Fund System. ECONOMY IN THE MOVEMENT Commissioner of Education Begins Sys tematic Study of Problem by Request of Dr. Dillard of the Jeanes and Sla ter Fund Board—>Plan Benefits the General Public. The United States bureau of educa tion In co-operation with the Fhelps- Stokes fund Is now making a compre hensive study of the private and high er schools for colored people. This study is undertaken in response to numerous and Insistent demands for knowledge of these schools, the uum I her of which is constantly Increasing. | Thoughtful people of tho south and of the north, white and colored, are more and more puzzled as to the raer- j Its and demerits of the many appeals i for money and sympathy In behalf of all sorts and conditions of institutions for the race. Letters from state sup erintendents of education in the south emphasize the need df a complete sur vey of tlie whole field. At a confer ence of tho representatives of some of these schools held in New York last spring, it was the consensus of opinion that there is much duplication of edu cational efforts in some sections, but much more of neglect in many other sections. j Every educational board interested in the colored people and almost every , | individual who contributes to this cause is calling for information. After ; considerable discussion of this need by pr. Dillard of the Jeanes fund and the Slater board, and by other represents tlves of the “conference for education in the south,” It was decided to appeal to the United States commissioner of education for a thorough study of the private and higher schools for Afro Americans. Commissioner Clnxton's intimate knowledge of every phase of education in the southeeuubied him to understand the imt>ortnnce of this re quest. and lie immediately began to innke plans for the study now under wn y. A remarkable evidence of tho Impor tance of this survey is the fact that about the same time two other Impor tant organizations Interested In colored schools decided to assemble in forma tlon on this subject. Dr. J. H. Dillard, secretary of the Slater board, obtained IHTinission of that body to begin the study. It was at this time also that the trustees of the Phelps-Stokes fund, confronted by npi»enlg from all sorts and conditions of schools, decided to make a thorough survey of the altua tlon. As the fund Is of recent origin, n word of explanation may be necessary nt tills point This Phelps-Stokes fund is the resldunry estate, amounting to übout $1,000,000, bequeathed by Miss Caroline Phelps Stokes of New York city for various philanthropic purposes, among which Is the education of Ne groes. Most of the appropriations inude up to date have contributed di j reetjy or Indirectly to a clearer knowl edge of colored schools. Gifts to the ! Universities of Virginia aud Georgia ' and to the Peabody college. In Nnsh | ville. are for the maintenance of fel i lowshlps and research work In the field of Negro education. Tho co-opera tlon of tho bureau of education and the Plielps-Stokos fund is the result of the close relationship of the representatives of the Sinter board, the conference for education in the south and the trustees of tho Pbelps-Stokes fund with each other and with Commissioner Clnxton. Through this cooperation unnecessary duplication Is avoided, and time, effort and money are saved. The work Is done under the Immedi ate direction of Dr. Thomns Jesse Jones, n native of Wales and a nat uralized citizen of the United States, who was educated both In southern and northern institutions and has de voted a number of years to tho educa tional and economic condition of the Negroes In the United States. His studies and observations, extending over several years In the census bu reau and In the United States bureau of education, will be especially useful in this study of acbools. An exhaustive schedule of questions in regard to the schools has been pre pared with much care and Is being filled by Dr. Jones and those associat ed with him, after careful Investiga tion of the schools made by them. These questions relate to the history of the schools, their present condition, their management, their religious and i social activities and the work of grad uates and former students. When Ifufncient data have been col lected a report will be printed and pub lished, giving a brief but accurate sur vey of each school, of Its equipment, its work and its place in the educa tional system of the city, county or state in which It Is located.

This san- s i itary method o. treatment is also having the desired effect in helping to prevent the spread of diseases, for it is a fact that hair in an unsanitary condition carries the germs of disease which often prove fatal to innocent persons coming in contact with them.
