Some New Books.
It has recentlv been my good for- o
tune to read some new books the
rt,ading of which gave me so much r
pleasure that I feel that I must write g
a ew lines t, gik-e expression to that
p;asure with the hope that others a
may be inluced to read the same d
btoks and to share the pleasure that n
I enjoved. The authors of these
1oks are both at this time citizeM
oI Newberry though no: native born.
N -wbcrrv oight to be proud of own
ing such men.
The first f these hooks that 1
read was "Immortality.- by William
L. Seabrook. pastor of the Evangeli- -
cal Lutheran Church of the Redeem- b
er. Newberry. S. C. a
The reading of this book gave mt
SO much satisfaction. peace and com
fort that I was sorry when I turned d
the last page and saw that I was
through. It is a book not to be crit
icized but to .e read and enjoyed.
This much, however. may be said a
that the bad man. th, reprobate has
no place in it.
After reading this book T felt that
it would be long before I found an
other that could give me equal enjoy
ment in the reading. But there was
one then lying on my table which I D
read soon after I was throtigh with
Immortality. The title of that book b
is *The Four Princes, the Building of h,
a Great Empire.- These four princes
are Paul. Constantine, Bernard and
Luther. It is the history in a com
pact form of the establishment of the
Christian church. It is wonderful
how a great writer like a great paint- d<
er can present in one picture a series
of events covering many years and s
