At the joint meeting of the V. M and V. W. C. A., the subject of the Student Volunteer Movement was pre sented by the presidents of the two associations, which proved very interesting to those present.

Rev. Marion George was present with us on the after iioon of Nov. 20th. His earnest words were an inspiration to us and at the close we felt that we had received a deep spiritual blessing, and we felt stronger to go forward with our work.

The Porcupine is a creature that we are not acquainted with, only as it comes to us as a paper. Admiral The production in The Earlhaite, Dewey,” written by one of our ‘98 students was very much appreciated by all.

The Earlhamite is read with much interest. All look forward to its coming, as we have representatives within the walls of that institution. “Should a burglar catch a policeman where would he take him? By tile nose, for a policeman is a copper, and a copper is a cent, and a scent is always taken by the nose.” The eighty or more little messengers that come to us every month bring smiles and sunshine and tell us how we may improve in look and tone and give encouraging reports of the institutions which they represent. ‘Get all the education von can.
