church in the South, of Tidings, the
Sunday school paper, and of all the

After a full statement by the spec
il agent of the con f.:tee as to his
canvass for funds, as aultiorized by
the syni. and ater a t.1 rough in
ve-' I;l te bul.inless candIlkitionls
of the i:edSyaod l'ubei.- (mu .
panyV, I 4crliimit tee decided to acept
the piroperty of the publisilinug comn
pany an-l all of its publications.
Followiig this action the question
as to the location of a future publish
ing house of the Lutheran church in
the South was considered by the com
mittee and it was decided that an
available piece of property located in
the city of Columbia should be pur
chased and improved. The main con
- ditio contemplated in this action
was that a fund of $10,000 tin cash
should be raised towards acquiring
the property. This action of the com
mittee in arranging for the establish
Ient of a publishing house is hut an
other step in the development of a
great church enterprise; the first of
marked significance was the eonsoti
dation of The Lutheran Visitor, for
'iany years published at Newberry,
anid Our Church Paper) formerly pub
lished at New Market, Vso
Rev. W. H. Greever, who has acted
as special agent for raising the funds
with which the publications were pur
chased for the church, 'was authorized
to prosecute a further additional
canvass for the $10,000 fund to go to
wards purchasing the property for
the publishing house. The committee
also passed special resolutions of ap
preciation of the efficient services of
the Rev. Messrs. C. A. Freed and W.
H. Greever, who have been connected
with th church paper since it has
been published in Columbia, 1904.
and of Mr. W. P. Ho.useal, who has
been connected with the publishing of
the ehurch paper for over 25 years.
After the transfer bf the property
had been provided for and questions
of location of the publishing house
had been conditionally disposed of,
Ithe committee elected the busine.ss
Sand editorial staff of the paper. Rev.
-W. HI. Greever was elected editor and
t general manager, Rev. C. A. Freed
~treasurer, Mr. Wt. P. H-ouseal, of
fice manager, wvith provision for' ad
ditional office assistants.
The new publishuing house will be
the only official publishaing house in
~ thew slate of a general chiu rch holy
-covermg a territory like that c'over
ed by the United synod, which includl
es all territory su'oth of Mason and
Dixon's hine and east of the Missis
sipp)i river, and will control the enitire
hproduction and dlistribuition of all
literature for the Lutheran church in
the south, both of a current and a
standard nature. The building itself
will be an ornament to the city and
wvill cost thirty thousand dollars.
The publication house will not only
be a worthy enterprise of Columbia,
but it will be a significant influence
in directing the attention of a ver~y
desirable class of immigrants from
certain parts of the North and North
west of the United States to this city.
It was a significant fact in statis
tics last year that the largest- per
cent. in denoinat ion al growth wvas
in the Lutheran church, and that the
Itargest gr'owth in the Lutheran church
11was in the United Synod of the south.
aThe Lutherans in this state are fast
coming'to the front in promoting thec
material as well as the spiritual wvel
