POLITICAL CONVENTIONS. July will be an important month in American politics. The Democrats will gather at Chicago on the 7th, to nominate a President and Vice-President. Two weeks later the Populists and "Silver" men are called to meet at St. Louis. The action taken by these different bodies will have everything to do in shaping the coming campaign.

RELIGIOUS MEETINGS. The great Christian Endeavor meeting at Washington, July 8-13, will attract thousands of Endeavorers, young and old, even from distant parts of the country, and some from foreign lands.

On the same dates the Young People's Christian Union of the Universalist Church will be in session at Jersey City.

The sixth international convention of the Young People's Union of the Baptist Church will be held in Milwaukee, July 16-19.

The gatherings at Northfield, Mass., beginning with the World's Student Conference, will occupy the greater part of July and August.

NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION. The meeting of the National Educational Association at Buffalo, July 7-10, promises to be an important one. The concession of half rates and extension of tickets by the railroads insures a large attendance. Papers and addresses may be expected from Presidents Hall, Jordan, and Draper, Commissioner Harris, Bishop Vincent, Booker T. Washington, Brander Matthews, and many others. A meeting of the Council of Education will precede the general Association meeting, beginning July 3.
