The Closing Exercises. 

Tlif 'riiirtct'iitli Session of IlicScliool 
\v;i> ln-ou^ht to ail I'lid witli tlif usual 
i-losiiijr cxciciscs on Friday, April 2()th, 
1S)(>7. In till- inorninjj the stiultMits met 
for tlu'ir linal dfvotional service. In the 
afternoon at I o'clock was held the 
Annual Meeting of tlu' Hoard of Incoi" 
li«)iiiti(»n and tlu* (Jeneral Coiuicil. when 
the various reports of the yearwi-re prt-- 
sentt'd and plans for the future work of 
the School were considered. At the 
c-lo.se of this meeting th^^eiuhers pic- 
sent jidjourned to the ReadiniX Room, 
where, on the kind invitation of the 
President, they had dinner toK»'tlu'r. 

The puhlic meeting ill the eveninjj: was 
attended by a large gathering of the 
friends of .the School, which occupied 
every part of the Assembly Hall. The 
Rev. F. S. Weston conducted the open- 
ing devotional exercises; and the Chair- 
man, Dr. Harris, gave a summary of the 
main featiues of the work of the session, 
i-efeiring espenjally to the increased in- 
tei-est in the Day Classes, and the good 
work done by the students in their mis- 
sion study classes. The graduating 
class was represented on the piogramme 
by two of its menibeis. Mr. Percival 
Loney gave an earnest addre.ss on the 
death of our Lord, representing it as 
"The Darkest Hour in Hi.story." Miss 
Flora .). Ray ga\ e a very ai)propriate 
valedictory, in which she i>ortrayed with 
true appreciation the real characteris- 
tics of the student life of the School. 
Tlie Diplonuis and Certificates weri' then 
I)resented as follows : Eleven students 
received Diplomas for having satisfac- 
torily completed the two year.s' cour.se 
in the Day Classes, viz.: Mis.ses Annie 
Rartlett, .Jennie Dale, Clara S. Donnn, 
Sarah Flasletl. .Mary R. McCormick, 
Flora .1. Ray, Fmily M. Tyler, ami 
Messrs. R. E. Jones, P. R. Loney, S. C. 
Rutledge and (ieorge TesUn-. Two 
former graduates. Miss M. (J. Le.s.slieand 
Mr. H. L. Troyer, received special dip- 
lomas for an additional year of post- 
graduate study. Five .students received 
certificates for the three years' course in 
th«' Evening Cla.s.ses, viz.: Mi.s.ses M. 
Jennings, M. I. McCauley, (i. .Smith and 
E. St. John, and Mr. Frank West lake. 



A few fai'cwell words were then spoken 
to these stvidenls by the Piincipal, who 
urged them "to follow on to know the 
Lord." 

The two main addresses of tin' evening 
were delivered by the Rev. Dr. McTavish 
of Toronto, and the Rev. .To.seph Sulli- 
van of Rrantford. Dr. McTavish made 
an earnest ai)peal for consecrated ser- 
vice, and Mr. Sullivan gave a .stirring 
address on the importance of Bible 
study, and thus a most ijiteresting meet- 
ing was bi'ought to a clo.st'. 

The one regret felt during the proceed- 
ings of the day Wiis cjiused by the 
absence of the revei-ed and beloved Di'. 
Stewart. As explained in another pai't 
of this paper, he had been taken ill just 
befoie the close of the session, and was 
unable to attx'nd tiny of the meetings of 
this day. His presence was especially 
mi.s.sed from the platform at the closing 
meeting, for every year since the begin- 
ning of the School he. had presented the 
graduating class and addres.sed them in 
))aiting words of counsel. 



Report ot the Principal. 

In icviewing the past session, the first 
note must be one of thanksgiving. For 
although the work has been carried on 
at some disadvantage on account of the 
illness and ab.sence of the President for 
a great part of the time, yet it nuiy be 
truly said that under the good hand of 
(iod the Hible Training School closes 
to-day a very successful year. 

enr()l:\U':nt .vnd .xttendance. 

The number of students enrolled dur- 
ing the year in the Day Classes was Iki 
(SI men and 35 women), representing 12 
denominations. This nund)er is the 
same as last year and indicates no in- 
crease. Tin' average attendance, how- 
ever, which is a truer test of the jnogi-ess 
of tin- School, shows a marked advance. 
The daily attendance of .students taking 
the regular course during the latter half 
of the session was largei- than at any 
previous ])eriod in the history of the 
School. 

The number eiuolled in the three 
evening classes was 240 (73 men and 167

THE LIBHARY AND HEADING ROOM. 

A considera ' le addition has been made 
t<i tlif Library. Through the kindness 
of Dr. Harris we have been enabled to 
purchase a large munber of new and 
important books, especially Biblical and 
missionary works of refei-ence. In ad- 
dition to this \\v would gratefully ac- 
knowledge a valuable donation of l»ooks 
fronj Mr. .1. D. Nasmith. Tluoe are now 
altog«'tlier 1.2(HI vohunes in the Lilnary. 

During the Chiistmas vacation llu' 
Library was overhauled, a new cata- 
logue was pi-epared, and the books were 
classiti«'<l and arranged upon the shelves 
in sections marked in such a way as to 
guide the stiuh'Ut.s in their \ise of them. 

The reading room has Iwen kept well 
supplied with current religious ])eriodi- 
<-als. We are again inilebted for this to 



the liberality of Mrs. T. M. Harris. We 
desire also to thank the Presbyterian 
Board of S. S. Publications for their 
kindness in voluntarily sending one of 
their weekly pui)cis for the rcgidar use 
of the reading room. 

EVAN(JELISTIC AND .AriSSK (N AH V WOHK. 

A word should be said abovit the prac- 
tical work and sjiiritual lite of the stu- 
dent l)(i(l\'. Tile two depai'tments of 
piactical work carried on are repre- 
sented by the Evangelistic Band and the 
Missionary Society. The Evangelistic 
Band has conducted Gospel meetiTigs 
every week in one <jf the Missions of the 
city, besides assisting in many other 
services. This work has pi-oved of great 
value as a tiaining for the students 
themselves, and has been blessed in the 
conversion of many lives to the Lord 
Jesus Christ. 

The Missionary Society has been very 
active in fostering the missionary spirit 
and in furtlu-ring the systematic study 
of missions jiniong the students. A 
I)ublic meeting, esi)ecially intended for 
reaching young people with the mission- 
aiy appeal, was held under its auspices, 
and was accomjianied with every mark 
of success and blessing. While all the 
students take an active interest in both 
the missionary and the evangelistic 
work, theie aie fifteen who are volun- 
teers for foreign missions. 

In order to unify the various parts of 
the life and work of the School, a repre- 
sentative Conunittee was apjiointed by 
the students at the beginning of the 
session to act with the Piincipal in all 
matteis relating to the student body as 
a whole. This simple organization has 
pi-oved satisfactory, and is intended to 
be continued from year to year. 

A beautiful spirit of harmony and 
Christian fcllowshii) has charactt^-ized 
the life of the School. Early in the 
session an unusually deep spii-it of prayer 
maidfested itself, the effect of which was 
continued throughout the year. The 
Tuesday morning devotional service 
CDUtinues to be a soiuce of helpfulness 
to the si)iritual life of the students. On 
the whole, the uninterrupted blessing

Report of Rev. Dr. Stewart. 

Duiiiij; this session of iSMMi-dT, I ha\f 
iM'on enabled, without the loss of a .sinj^Ie 
hour, to attend to my duties iu tin- liihle 
Training School, it is with gratitude 
to (Jod for His goodness that this record 
is UKide. My work has been the instruc- 
tion of the Day Classes in Bible Doc- 
trint's, in the Life and Ministry of I'aid. 
in Hil>le Headings, and in the interpre- 
tation of DitWeult Pas.siiges in the Nt'W 
Testament. In the absence of Dr. Har- 
ris, I also gave to the EvcMiing Classes 
foin- lectin-es on Methods of Bible Study. 
The conduct of the students has bet'U 
exemplaiy, their inteiest in the studies 
has been marked and the progress made 
by them has been (juite gratifying. It 
has been a gi-eat joy to me to gather 
with these earne.st yoinig Christians 
ai'oinid the \\'oixl «)f God day by day, in 
honest, patient and prayerful .study. 

I have al.so had continuous duties to 
perform as Secietary of the School. 
Fii-st of all, there is the W(fik incident to 
the .iniMial meeting, and the nu'etings 
of the Board of Incorporation. Then 
there is a large correspondence re<|uired 
in reminding the fri«'nds of the School 
of its ne»'ds, and in seeking to secure 
new friends, who will have fellow.ship 
with us in providing for its mainteii- 
jinci'. There ar»' also not a few letters 
from former stu«h'nts at home and 
abroad whieh nuist receive, as indeed 
they de.seivt'. kind and sym|>athetic 
answei-s. Then last of all. there are not 
only numei-ous re<piests for information 
al»out the School from int«'nding stu- 
ih'Uts, but als(» for advic«' alHiut Bilile 
study and Bible <hfliculties. to .dl of 
which prompt replies must Ik' s«'nt. In- 
deed I have frequently considere*! of

lines of Bible study might not jtrove a 



Dr. Stewart's Health. 

On the morning of the day after he 
wiote his short r»'port of service fur tin- 
past year. Dr. St4'wart was .seized with 
a light paralytic sti-oke. which affected 
his left si<h', and from which he has with 
the blessing of (iod In-en gra<lnally re- 
covering. He is now .ible to walk aiiout 
with condort, and attend to ordinary 
dutii's. While it would be unwise for 
him to a.ssume the steady lalnii-s of past 
sessions, he yet hopes to continue his 
work as Secretary of the Sch(»ol. anil 
render such otlier .service as the l.K»rd 
will. In the meantime the Board of 
Incorj)oralion an<l .i Connnitt«'e of the 
(leneral Coimcil are making the Im*s1 ar- 
rang«'ments they can for the etiicient 
instruction of all the clas.ses of the 
.School. 



Encouraging Testimonies. 

I-'rom the Hev. T. B. Hyde, who gavi- 
a much apprc-ciated course of lectures 
last term, we have re<«'ived the follow- 
ing note in regard to tin- u ork of the 
class : 

"I enjoyed my evenings with the stu- 
«h*nts. and their papers on the whole in- 
dicate tliat they got hold of the std»ject 
very well. Some <>f tin- papers an- iv- 
markal>ly full, and obtained fidl marks." 

We miss«'d fi-oni the recent annual 
meeting of the Board .-tnd Council one 
of our fiist helpers in the work, the Ilev. 
Di-. H. M. I'ai-sons. who wrot«' as fol- 
lows: 

" I regret very nnich that on account 
of aiisen<'e from the city I shall not Im* 
able to In' present .'it your annual meet- 
ing. I regret als(» to miss the closing 
exi-rcises of the Schoid. \\ hich I always 
enjoy. I appreciate gi<'atly the Hue 
eviden<e always given of tlie thorough 
work done in the coui-se of biblical study 
'presclilM'il to your stUilellts."
