The Second International convention of the Students' Volunteer Movement tor Foreign Missions will be held at Detroit, Wednesday,Feb. 28-Sunday, March 4. This convention is held every three years, and, judging by the past, it promises to be the lárgest and most inspinng convention of college students ever assembled in this country. lts purpose is to bring to a conference the representatives of the missionary organizations of all the colleges and seminaries of North America. Among its special features, might be mentioned a series of addresses by some of the strongest missionary speakers of America and Great Britain. These will be given during the five evenings of the convention. A portion of each day will be devoted to a discussion of current missionary questions. Section conferences wil be held, and an opportunity given for personal interviews with returned missionaries. PerhaDS the most unique and valuable feature of the conference will be a wonderful educational exhibit of the best missionary literature and appliances of the present day. The long program of speakers includes such names as Kevs. A. J. Gordon, A. T. Pierson, J. I Hudson Taylor and Messrs. R. E. Speer and L. D. Wishard. At the first convention held three years ago at Cleveland, over 150 educational institutions of the United States and Canada were represented. Ovving to the great increase in this work among college students, it is expected that this second convention will far excel any former meeting of the kind.
