an improvement on the choir which
is so helpful to divine worship.
X%hen our people all get settled

where they have gone.
It was our pleasure to go over, in
company with Prof. V. K. Sligh,
and worship with the good people
of Bethlehem church on last Sun
day. It has just beci twenty-nine
yCals, a week prev.ious to this day
since I ld been to Ilethleleiml
church. There Live been many
ups and downs, anld changes of
various descriptions since tlien, hut
still the old oaks looked familiar.
The old cliurch, wiici contailned
a large gallery, has been torn down,
and a more commodious building
takes its place. The graveyard
then was cquite small, and was not
half filled witli graves, but nor; it
is as large again as it was then, and
is filled froim onie side to the otlier
with tomnbstoiies bearing t ihein
scriptions of many of those bless-ed
old people who worshipped there
twenty-nine years ago.

Dr. Scherer's first pastoral exper
lence was at Pulaski, Va. Upon his
return from Japan, lie became the
pastor of a church at St. Matthews,
in Orangeburg county, and after
about a year he was called to St.
Andrew's church in Charleston
where lie has served the congrega
tion most acceptably for about five
and a half years.
Dr. Scherer is a most scholarly
clergyman and' an carnest and inde
fatigable worker in th,e field of
classics, as well as in his pastoral
duties. Dr. Scherer's book, "The
Four Princes'', was well received,
and lie has now on the press a book
on Japan, which is certain to be as
equally acceptable to the reading
