Bachman Chapel,. November 6.
Last Sunday -we had the pleasure of
worshippingin our oldimother church,
St. Paul's. This is t9e first 'time we
have been there$,since the church 'has
undergone -such wonderful improve
ment. After ,we.got inside we could
hardly realize that we were at St.
Paul's, so the reader can draw -his own
conclusion i wJiat extent the im
provement has been. To be brief, we
will say that old St. Paul's congrega
tion now has one of the prettiest
church edifices that lhas been shown
anywhere in the county. For me to
say I love to go to old St. Paul's is
only speaking in a mild form, it a-l
ways seems very much to me like go
ing home, and while it brings'feelings
of joy to my heart, it also brings feel
ings of sadness. It was at this same
altar thirty-five years ago, during a
protracted meeting, I gave my heart
to God. And we never shall forget
wRhat a glorious revival of religion
that lasted for more than' a week. The
alvar was surrounded with the follow

Yes, my Christian friends, how
sweet the dear name of old St. Paul's
should sound to every Luheran

will never get the credit that she de
serves. Shie deserves the title of the

of Newberry county more than any

to say something of that dear old

r been the shepherd of that flock for
the past forty years.
It is -a pleasure, and oftimes, a very
great one, to read the biographies of
eminent men, especially if -those men
have been eminent for their good and
pure and useful lives. When a good
n man dies and passes away, and leaves
a sphere of activity in which he/has
e been known as an active worker .for
many years. it is well. that his useful
L ness !should - be prolonged, and his
s, memory should be kept green when
n -he thimself is no longer to be seen
e and heard on -earth, yes, our works
s, follow us, and when a person -lives a
s long life, long humanly speaking, for
e a life of a hundred years is very short
s when compared with the duration of
, time, it is a great pleasure 'to 'his
11 children and his descendants, and the
d. succeeding generation of those who
y know him, to know that his life was
e well spent. But I have always thought
tr it a 'mistake to wait until a man'dies,
