The third international convention of the Student Volunteer Movement for Foreign Missions, will as already announced, take place at Cleveland, Ohio, from Feb. 23 to Feb. 27. These conventions are held every four years, and are made up of student delegates from the different colleges and schools in the United States and Canada. This year the convention is to be at Cleveland by invitation of the Young Men's Christian Association of that city, and will be unusually interesting and well attended.
