Seventy-five per cent bf the Negro population live in small villages and on farms, and working among these 9,000,000 agricultural laborers the church has just five priests. Proteslant Negroes have 39.430 churches and 36,33!) Sunday schools itl-. 1,45,387 pupils. Their church property is valued at $75,000,000. Protestant Negroes are contribut- ing annually $200,000 to home mis- sions and $100,000 to foreign missions. Americn Catholics are contributing only $50,000 annually to colored ntis- sions here.
