Another Session Begun. 

The fouPteentll ses..,i,)ii ,,f tile Scln»ol 

is now well on the way. It opened on 
the 17th of Sept«'mher with a k<^<><1 <'»i- 
pohnent. which has jr,,ne on steadily 
incpeasiiif?. The actual nninl>«-pof names 
on the roll at presetit is not ^pe.itei- than 
at the same jM'piod last yeai-. hut tin- 
avepaK«'atten(hince of students is U-ttt-p. 
It Is intepestiiif^also to notice that while 
last yeai'at this time the women stu- 
dents were in a consich-pahle majority, 
this yeapthe munlH'ps ape alH>ut e«|u,dly 
divided. The students ni-e all takinj^ 
liohl of theip work with conmiend/il>l<- 
dilij^ence and earnestness. 


Public Lectures. 

The session lu-^^aii as it also did a ycai- 
a^o. witii a number of publir U-ctiucs 
by Mr. A. ('. (Jaeb»'l»Mn of New Voik. 
'riiese leetm-es were delivered in tlu> 
iifterno«)ns and evenings of the first three 
ihiys. The afternoon lectures were on 
prophetic themes, and were liased on tlu- 
Hook of Joel and on two of the Psalms. 
The j'vening lectiu-es took the form of a 
conrse «»f expositions of the Epistle to 
the (Jalatians. Mr. (Jai-belein's inifold- 
ing of the teaching of this Epistle was 
deal- and helpfnl. particidarly his ex- 
planation and illustration of the differ- 
ence between law and grace. Many 
wei-e heard to spi'ak of the benefit they 
had rt-ceivtMl from these expositions. 

New Lecturers. 

We welcome to the number of the 
Instructors of the School two new lec- 
tiu-ers who have been appointed for the 
present year to dividi- the subject of 
Bible Doctrines, formerly tanght by Dr. 
.Stewart. The Rev. F. S. Weston is 
carrying on this work with great efifi- 
eiency during the first part of the session. 
The H«'v. V. H. Cow.sert will c(Mitinvie 
it .ifter the new year. 

Student Organizations. 

A students" Kxecutive Committee 
was a|)point<'d early in the .se-ssion to 
deal with matters ctmcerning the gen- 
eral student l»ody. It consists of the 
following nienil)ers: Mr. George Tester, 
Chairman ; Miss N. E. Tloulding, Secre- 
tary: .Mr. n. L. Troyer. xMiss M. G. 
Le.sslie, Ml-. H. E. Jones, Mr. I.. R. Rist. 

The Missionary Society has been or- 
ganized with .Mr. H. L. Troyer as Presi- 
dent, Mr. Cieorge .Sander.son, Vice-Presi- 
dent, and M. (J. I..«'.sslie. Secretary- 
Trens\ir»'r. The Society is carrying on 
a systematic study of China, a«-coi(ling 
to the plan of the Young People's 
Korwar«l Missionary MovtMuent. 

The l-^angelistic Hand is under the 
leadership of Mr. It. E. .fone.s, with Mr. 
r.,. H. Hist as A.s.sociat^ Iv«'ader, Miss M. 

K. Ilalpenny and .Miss A. (iarbutt as 
Seci'etaries. Alri'ady much blessing 
has attended the work which the stu- 
dents have Ix'en carrying on in soine of 
the mis,sions throughout the city. 

Special Classes. 

The morning in Engli-sh are 
l)eing conducted this year by Mr. Fied 
Hai-ris, a son of the President of the 
School, who has iccently graduated with 
distinction from Princeton University. 

Mr. t^ringan's music class on Tuesday 
afternoon has been resumed. Vei-y 
.satifactory progress is being made in 
this department. 

The Medical Lecturers this term are 
Dr. E. F. Bowie and Dr. G. D. Porter. 
The former lectures every Wednesday 
on "Drugs and Medicine," the latter 
every Thui-sday on " Medical and Surgi- 
cal Emergencies." 

To Foreign Fields. 

Since last annual meeting seveial of 
our former students have removed to 
distant fields of labor. Mr. E. C. Austin, 
Canada's fiivst missionary to Peru, has 
gone to labor among the Incas, about 
two millions of whom have no know- 
ledge of the love of .Jesus. Miss Maud 
West, who was a missionaiy teacher in 
Argentina, is now at work for the 
Mast(?r at Santa Cruz, Teneriffe. Miss 
M. E. Standen, who has been home for 
fvnloiigh, has i-ecently retui-ned to hei- 
imj)orlant field in Kiangsi, China. Miss 
Lily Tilley, who graduatt^d with us, and 
then took a of ti-aining as a 
nurse, has .sailed for China, under the 
auspices of the China Inland Mission. 
.Miss Lucy M. Jones has just left for 
India, where .she will labor in connection 
with the wonderfully successful mission 
among the Telugus. 

We may also state that Mr. Charles 
Waddell, with his young wife, expect** 
.soon to return to Northern Nigeria, and 
that Miss C Donnn has beiMi accejjted 
for- .service in the same distant and needy 
field. May the blessing of God accom- 
pany all these friends, and make them 
wise in wiiuiing souls.
