The Stale Normal School of this district,
at llloomsburg, has outgrown its buildings.
Tho trustees have been obliged to tnko

At tlio Munty Luminary olllco wo found

Mm from the other Moodys, came back to

Wnnnmnkcr has a cottago near tho sem
inary. Tho seminary was started on n small
scale In a dwelling house. It wns soon
housed In a laigo brick building on n com
manding site, tho East Hall. Another
largo brick dormitory has been added by
tho Marqunnd estate; and n beautiful stono
halt has been built for rccttntlons. Moody's
object is to help girls of moderate means
to obtain nn education that shall fit them
for real usefulness In life by Its thoroughly
Christian character. Each pupil is to pay
$100 a year and take n share In the lighter
work of the household. There Is, of
course, a heavy deficiency for Mr. Moody
and his friends to mako up. I understand
that part, if not all, of tho royalty from
tho hymn books goes Into this enterprise.
It nil goes to benevolent work of some sort.
Tlioboys' school nt Mt. Hcrmon, on a largo
farm, is conducted on tho same principles.
There were 100 pupils last year nnd they
aro preparing for 300 next year. It con

our Indian tribes, nnd Europe. There nro

Apropos of Great Britain, among the r-

ono of tho gentlemen cricketers who havo
just como over. I sco htm now, in his
short pants nnd russet shoes, with his Bible
under his arm, tramping away from tlio
stono ball, where the meetings oi tuo
Northficld Convention of Christian Work
ers Is held. Ho wns ono of tho students
who stood by Mooely at Cambridge Univer
sity in England nnd was converted. In
tho men's meeting last evening (for there
was a woman's meeting nnd so tho men
were left to themselves) Mr. Studd told in
n very simple and Interesting way of the
Interest awakened In ibe British univcrsi
ties on the subject of "Foreign Missions,"
nnd of the seven young men (of leading
society in London, according to Moody)
who have lately gono to China, ono of them
his brother. He traced tho movement back
to tho meetings of Moody nnd Snukcy nt
Tho principal interest of tho Convention,
so far, centres around Dr. Gordon, of Bos
ton, Dr. Picrson, of Philadelphia, and
Mooely, ns speakers, nnd Messrs. Sankcy,
Towner and Parker, as singers. Mr. Park
er Is a singing Evangelist from Spurgcon's
college, who tells mo ho has been holding
meetings In every country In England, save
one. Mr. Towner was brought in connec
tion with Moody in Cincinnati where ho
was teaching music, nnd has now devoted
himself to evangelistic servlco under
Moody's direction. He has a powerful
voice and Is a good leader. Sankey's sing
ing seems to mo ns sweet as ever.
Mooely presides at all the meetings in the
stone hall, and keeps everything under con.
trol, from the timing of n speaker downjto
tho seating of the people nnd even to the
chnrges of tho hackmcn. Ho docs not
talk often himself. I havo heard but ono
sermon, or long speech, from him. That
was grand in its simplicity nud fullness of
Gospel truth. 8. M.

Pure advertising prompts us
to invite visitors to our city to
visit our store ; and, to make
the invitation more effective we
afford them all the conveniences
that we have facilities for.
We are making here such a
mart as we believe to be good
for our city, good for our coun
try and good for ourselves ; and
we want as many people to
know about it as we can get.
There is nothing mysterious
about it. It is only a place
where many sorts of merchan
dise are gathered together,
many grades of a sort, every
thing called by its true name,
and everything sold for about as
little as we can afford ; a place
where a great many wants are
supplied, and no cheating done;
a place where all the skill you
need in buying is to know what
you want, or to be able to recog
nize it when you see it.
"We are making such a mart,
we said. Eight years ago, when
we began this general trade,
some thought we made it in a
twinkling. We covered a part
of the ground and begun only
begun. Every year since has
brought increase of room and
of use for it, to say nothing of
the increase of knowledge, by
which we buy better, sell better,
and walk with firmer foot. We
have not done by any means.
Our building and trade are
One is tem
porary ; tne otier appears to be
as secure of permanence as the
wants which give it life. One
is local ; the other appears to
have no necessary limits. One
is easy to see and understand ;
the other strikes most persons
as vast, various, complex, intri
cate. We invite you to enter; leave
