This session will witness the largest attendance t Jin the history of the College, ! seven hundred and lifty students i having been enrolled. Accom modations for students have been enlarged since the past ses- To meet the increasing do- j sion but still numbers have been mand for building lots in the section surrounding the new Union Colored Academy Mr. turned away for lack of dormi tory facilities, especially appli cants from otLer States.

He says appreciation in the value of prop- that the college never had a more erty in this section it is only j brilliant outlook, and deplores necessary to state that over scv- j the lack of room which prevents enty-live building lots have been sold within a radius of a few blocks of this handsome building within the past twelve month and that over forty-five cottages and homes have been erected. Lots which one year ago sold for 7j cannot be purchased now for $150.00 and other values have in creased proportionately. The location of the colored academy in this section caused the great demand for lots. The colored people of the community are rapidly building up that sec tion with good homes ;md it is becoming the home for the best colored citizenship of this city. The sal which will be held on Wednesday afternoon, Sept. "!;ld, is already assured of sucress. In tact it was .suggested by the demand for Jots on this property. There are only twenty lots to he sold but they are beautifully lo cated and already oilers have been made on them which will be withheld until the sale. One lot is to be given away free, the only condition being that the winner of the lot must be on the ground to claim it when the drawing is made. To the man or woman who has a modest sum for investment this sale will afford a tine oppor tunity. There is a growing de mand for houses in this section and it conies from renters who are reliable. A small lot and a house thereon in this section will pay twenty per cent and already some investors are earning this money. Remember the date and be on hand. Others are making good money out of these investments aud you can too. him answering favorably the scores of applications for admit tance that come in every day. The old white house has been entirely remodeled and veneered and presents the appearance of a new building.
