The meeting was called to order by Mr H C. White of Chambersburg. Pa , second vice president of the fourth general conference district, who presided during the exercises. On the platform be sides the speakers of the evening were a r.umber of officers of the district and promi nent Epw orthians.

Mr J Finney Engle then delivered an ad dress of welcome on behalf of the Wash ington district league, following which Iter. Dr Bristol, pastor of Metropolitan. Welcomed the convention to the church! Among other things Dr. Bristol said: "Paradoxical as It may seem, the small est welcome is the moet acceptable, if a foreigner coming to New York were to be ?net by a delegation of prominent citizens And welcomed to the country he would Jtkeiy feel proud-and lonesome. If he were to go on to a smaller town. Altoona for instance, where our president. Mr" : Woodcock, lives, and were to be met by the mayor and given the freedom of the city, ; no might feel Just as proud and not quite ^So Lonesome. But If he were taken to Mr Woodcock's home he would feel at home right away That Is the kind of hospitality I*1' wish to extend to you. We welcome Jou as a body of Epworth Leaguers, and also as Individuals.

In the new number of the "Field Natural ists' Quarterly." Mr. H. Rowland-Brown writes pleasantly on butterfly hunting: In the Alps. The first day which the British collector spends on the high mountains, or fven on their approaches, will, as the author rightly observes, be hereafter mark ed with a white atone. Species which in our Hi and a are exceedingly rare, or not even Included In our fauna, an sees AMI- ] terlng, sometimes abundantly, over the flower-spangled turf, or sunning thessaetvea on some projecting stone. Even the common forma are more abun dant there than with us, and on some of the smaller kinds moisture apparently ex ercises a kind of fascination. However muddy or even foul the puddle may be. there they are sucking it up so greedily that they win almost let themselves be trodden upon. Certain small species of the familiar blues and coppers are the mast' , addicted to drink, and the malee ara, re cused of be4og more confirmed topers than | the females. But to any one who has a 1 slight knowledge of entomology, the varle-" ty Is not less surprising than the abun dance. Our Islands are not rich in'butter* files, for. according- to the latest authorities, the number of species does not exceed stac ty-four, and even this includes stveral which are doubtful and some certainly not indigenous. Probably we are no better off than Lapland. which can reckon sixty welt authenticated species; while France can produce no leas than 210, and even Switzer land more than ITS. Nothing better indicates the difference between the Alps and our own country than Mr. Rowland-Brown's statement that on a small mountain overlooking the Bren ner pass he counted on otM at the last days hi July sixty-eight different species of butterflies on the wing, and has not un frequently observed In Switzerland and other parts of the Alps as many different sorts In a single day aa are contained in the whole British list.
