In 1892, when Trinity College
was moved from Trinity, N. C, to
Durham, N. C, a first class class
pieparatory school was established
at Trinity, occupying the buildings
formerly occupied by the college.
It has-been the purpose of this
school through these years to give
its students thorough preparation
for college work, and to equip them
for large spheres of usefulness in
their respective communities. The
trustees rtalize that a great many
young mm and young women can
npver go to col'fge. Keeping this
pi mind thuv have in ranged such
tvursesits would be of the greatest
vantage to the student preparing
fur his life work.
This school, like all other under
takings, has had quire a checkered
experience. It s d Ht times that
the school was iIii..iih1 to go down,
but it has ralliHil every time with a

put in all recitation rooms; much

painting, and otherwise improving
the property, has been done; quite a
number of young Uees and sbrubery
has been set on the campus, and the
campus otherwise improved; the
library has been greitly increased;
the faculty has increased from two
teachers to five, and a liorarian.
This year the school has received
several valuable donations of books

at Trinity High School
from its friends, ta well as a num
ber purchased by the school. Just
here it might be well to say that
the school needs a larger collection
of good books, as their library has
only about fifteen hundred volume?.
Throughout the couutry there are a
great number of good books that are
packed away doing no one any good.

It seems to us that the men who
really want to benefit the public
schools of the county could find no
better way of doing so than donating
a scholarship to some deserving
young woman who intends teaching
in the countv. This will insure
good, well equipped teacheis in our
common schools. These teachers
will be qualified for a higb order of
leadership, and will inspire their
stu dents to something higher.
