friends of Dr. Sampson throughout the Church that everything possible has been done in the effort to discover the body or to render him assistance if still alive. His death is a great blow to the seminary, to which he was most sincerely devoted, and to which he had given the last fifteen years of liis life. The session of the seminary will not open until September 29th on account of this ereat loss We cannot but how our heads in humble submission to this mysterious providence of God which has taken from us one of the most useful servants of His Church, as well as an intimate personal friend. Robert E. Vinson, President. UNION THEOLOGICAL. SEMINARY, RICHMOND, VA. Mr. Tustin L. Starry, of the Presbyterian church at Charles Town, West Virginia, has bequeathed his entire estate, valued at $1,200.00 or $1,500.00, to the seminary. It will be available for the seminary's use in about a year. Dr. A. C. Hopkins, the late beloved pastor of the church at Charles Town, was deeply interested in the seminary; and it is recalled that at a meeting of the board of trustees, of which he was one of the most valuable members, he suggested that it would be well to remind all our people of the fact that the needs of the seminary increased as it grew in numbers, and that, as there had been an increase of nearly 50 per cent, in flie attendance in recent years, our people oe requested not only to make contributions for its relief and help during their life time, but also to remember the institution in their wills. Mr. Starry's bequest is most timely, as the institution had great difficulty in providing for all the expenses of its greatly enlarged work last session. There is no way in which consecrated means can be made to yield a larger return than by aiding this institution where so large a proportion of our ministers and missionaries are trained; and donors and testators have the satisfaction of knowing that all funds committed to the trustees are handlea with the very best business skill and the most conscientious care. Amid the multitude of other good causes, let our people not forget the fundamental one represented by the seminary. Will not the readers of this paragraph act on the suggestion while it is fresh in their minds? The legal title of the corporation is, "The Trustees of Union Theological Seminary in Virginia."

RED HOT FOR OCTOBER. Foreign Missions. Cochran Preston. Right or wrong. If right, it means that God has laid it upon us to proride the means for enlarging the work, Instead of constantly begging ind struggling for its very life! Every member of the Southern Presbyterian Church is responsible aefore God, for a part of this enlargement and can present no excuse, to 3od or the Chuhch, that will relieve them of the duty of prayer, study, or gift to this cause! Developments in this Herculean task, in the past few years, demand that we arise in our might now and eally do something telling! Honesty, as well as the honor of our >ranch of Christ's earthly kingdom, sails for a deal more of self-denial imong our members, along the line of tiousehold conveniences, table comforts, fashionable displays, picture ind other entertainments. Opportunity is' at the flood tide for sternal investments in the bank of dirine grace! "Bring ye all the tithes nto my storehouse, saith the Lord, ind see if I will not open the windows af heaven, and pour you out a blessing, till there shall not be room snough to receive it." Think on these things! For it is i proven fact that every one who carefully thinks, and prayerfully ponders, Dver his or her responsibility and Drivilece in the service of flnH and the Church of Christ, finds the wide spen door, and the means of entering in. October is the half-way milestone In our Church year! How much better for all concerned, if we will enter into the work with heart and soul Die Union Seminary Review Walter L.
