It is True it is a sort of a Novelty to Hoar Tho Click of the typewriter and see the usual paraphernalia of Tho business College in the Public school room hut the innovation is made imperative by the Progress of the times in order to give our boys and girls a practical education that will lit them for the great struggle of life upon which they Are so soon to cuter. Seventy six pupils have taken up the commercial course. These at different periods of Tho Day pass through professor Horner a hands receiving a thorough Drill in business forms and Book keeping Short hand and typewriting business correspondence business practice and banking. Imitation Money is used and none of the details of actual business Are omitted. The Hoys and girls take great Pride in their work. While the latter must be accurate to a degree to pass Muster it is also As a Rule neat and a Model of pairs taking car professor horror impresses one As thoroughly master of the situation. The introduction of the new department has not been permitted to demoralize Tho discipline in the least. Nothing Moro could a desired on Tho part of the school to reflect a proper degree of Confidence in the teacher and respect for his authority. The students of tie course find the typewriting Drill especially exacting. The Quot touch method is ctn Loyod and no one is permitted to use the sight for a moment. Poor Progress is made at first hut the foundation must he Laid rightly and Speed is not a Factor at the beginning of the course. In an apartment alone four students at a time Are kept at practice.

Tho Sermon wove in a great Deal of history about the time of tiie Middle Ages showing How the people wore deprived of the privileges of the gospel Aud were made to dwell in spiritual darkness. The deliverance of Israel was compared to the deliverance of the Church from the roman Yoke. The methods employed in Eracli Case were similar. Girl you represented Luther Aud Gideon a 300 soldiers Luther a co labourers. The torches and pitchers the speaker said represented the Bible which then As it were was hidden under a pile of rubbish. Our characters Are the lamps lighted by gods Grace Aud shining for men in the Christian warfare the trumpets Are the Mouths of those who Praise god while the pitchers represent our capacity for receiving divine truth. The sword of Gideon stands for the word of god Tho cry of Gideon for virtually the cry of Luther a the just shall live by Faith. A enlarging Rev. Ulrich declared that it was through Faith that Israel won Over the Midi suites Aud through Faith that l Ather won out against Rome. Thus god chose the foolish things Ottlie world to confound the Wise. Concluding to stated that when great crises come god finds men for the occasion.
