joint committee from the Ohristiau As

So well was the work received that a
more commodious' house was required,
and at the beginning of the present year
the settlement was located in the present
pleasant quarters at 8lh nndXstieets.

finan.ly responsible for all expenses
incident to the work. Their appeal to
the faculty was responded to so liberally
that the opening of the present school
yearwnv all expenses met and a balance
in the treasury. Looking forward to the
time when the work should enlarge
