At the synod of the Michigan Presbyterians, Dr. Radcliffe, of De troit, made the report on the Tappan Presbyterian Association. The fol lowing are extracts: "McMillan Hall, which was in process of erection at the time of our last report, has been completec by the generous donor at a cost oí about $20,000. We hope to complete the furnishing of the rooms and arrangement of the library in a few weeks, when we will be ready for larger better work. The reading room in Sackett Hall was furnishec: with religious newspapers and magazines, and is kept open upon Saturdays and Sabbaths through the gratuitous service of the Young Peoples' Association in the Presbyterian church of Ann Arbor. Our work for the coming year will elude: First, the general use of McMillan Hall- we expect to open it day and evening during the term time and invite its use. There will be social evenings occasionally, under the auspices of the Young People's association of the Presbyterian church of Ann Arbor. The library, consisting of several thousand volumes, will be available not only to the students büt to any of our ministers for consultation. The gymnasium will not be completed until later. Second, the training course - This will be continued as usual during the second semester upon the general line already announced, vi., the English Bible, church history and applied Christianity. Third, the securing of endowments - For assumed and effective work we should have for the Presbyterian electorship, $15,000; training course, $5,000; general expenses, $10,000. We hope within the year to have the work upon a substantial fininancial basis, so we can attempt with courage and success the increasing work at the University. There are this year over 2,600 students in attendance, of whom fully 500 are of Presbyterian affliliation and training." -
