At a meeting of the elders and dea cons immediately following the prayer service the pastor's salary was raised $300 a year. For this and the words of kind appreciation of his services expressed by the officers of the church, both the pastor and his wife are grateful. A kitchen shower was held in the new church annex on Thursday afternoon, which was large ly attended by the ladies of the church, and resulted in securing many new and useful articles for the kitchen. C. R. Garrison, Pastor. Berkeley Springs and Duckwalt Churches: . At the request of the pap tor, Rev. L. Cook Campbell, Elder O. B. Weber, recently gave an address to these congregations, instead of the usual morning and afternoon ser mons. He discussed the subject of the financial obligations of Christians, including the tithe, in a vigorous and impressive manner, and was listened to with marked attention. Mr. Weber is a country elder, raised in the New Hope congregation, where a small mis sion church was built by the Berke ley Springs congregation, in a com munity without any PresDyteriftH members or associations. The Duckwall Sabbath school con tributed nearly fifty dollars to the Armenian Relief Fund. Since the com munity is recovering from its second epidemic of the "flu," the attendance is increasing, and the school is putting on new life, reviving the spirits of the faithful superintendent, Mr. E.

A SOUTHERN PRESBYTERIAN MADE SECRETARY OF THE AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY. We are very happy to announce the election of Mr. Frank H. Mann as one of the secretaries of the Ameri can Bible Society. On the resignation of the Rev. Dr. John Fox In July, 1918, a commit tee was appointed to secure a secre tary who should divide the responsi bilities of the administration of the society with the Rev. Dr. Haven. After a careful survey of the needs of the society, the committee recom mended to the board of managers the appointment of Mr. Frank H. Mann, of New York City. This appointment was a^ted upon at the meeting of the board of February 6, 1919, and Mr. Mann was unanimously elected one of the secretaries of the society. He was able to take up his duties im. mediately and is now at his desk at the Bible House, giving himself with enthusiasm to these new responsibili ties. Mr. Mann was born in Petersburg, Va? on May 8, 1883. His father was Judge Edwin M. Mann; his mother. Bertha Cowles Mann. His parents died when he was two years old, leav ing ten children, all of whom are now living but one. Mr. Mann was reared by his father's brother, the Hon. Wil liam Hodges Mann ? a lawyer, Judge and senator and governor of Virginia. He took his preparatory training in the public schools and at Hoge Mili tary Academy, Virginia. He grad uated from Hampden-Sidney College in 1903, and was on his graduation made a sub-professor, taking in 1904 his B. Lit. and M. A. During his col lege course he was interested in the library, was business manager and editor-in-chief of the college monthly, was on the editorial staff of the col lege Annual, president of the Y. M. C. A., director of the gymnasium, and president of the literary society ? thus, perhaps, unconsciously prepar ing himself for his future work. For a few months after leaving col lege he conducted a mission school in the mountains of Virginia, and for half a year was assistant secretary of the Y. M. C. A. in Havana. Cuba. He came to New York in 1905, entered the service of the Charity Organiza tion Society and became secretary of the Committee on the Prevention ot Tuberculosis, a department of that so ciety. At the outset of the war he enlist ed and entered the field artillery, where he became first lieutenant. He has had his honorable discharge, but has borne his part in the great struggle for the overthrow of German militarism. He was brought up by his uncle to be an earnest lover of the Bible and joined the Presbyterian Cnurch in the United States. On coming to New York he became a member of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian church, and is now president of their Young People's Association. He Is a mem ber of the board of managers and superintendent of the Sunday-school of the John Hall Memorial, well known in New York City as one of the important activities of the Fifth Ave nue church. He Is also vice-president of the Eighth Avenue Mission. He is related to a number of im portant interests in the city, both re ligious and social. Mr. Mann will give a very large part of his attention to strengthening the resources of the society. It is a great satisfaction to the Board of Managers to have on ita staff a young layman, loving the Scriptures and believing heart and soul In all missionary activities. THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. A Message to the PreibytorUl Stated Clerks: Our next General As sembly meets May loth in Napoleon Avenue church, New Orleans. And as so much of the convenience and success of its ftork depends upon the accuracy and promptness of the stated clergy of the eighty-seven Presby teries, I would take occasion at this early date to say a few words to you whose service is most important. 1. As there have been an unusual number of changes in the clerkships this year, I would ask those who have come into ofllce since the last Assem bly, please to notify me at once so that I may know with whom to com municate. 2. Be sure to procure a new set of blanks for reports this year. The As sembly orders changes nearly every year, so that It is never safe to use old blanks. 3. Take special care to fill out all these blanks according to the direc tions printed on them, and add up all the columns, using the adding machine if practicable. 4. Mail to me all these reports, and any other documents for the Assem bly, as early as possible ? at the latest by May 1st ? so that I may put the printers to work on the statistical tables, and to tabulate other reports for the Assembly. 5. See . that the Assembly assess ment on your Presbytery, as appears on page 269. Minutes of 1918, is paid before the Assembly, lest your com missioners be embarrassed about their expenses. 6. A number of clerks have been saving labor for themselves and ex pense to their Presbyteries by having their statistical tables for their spring minutes printed from the Assembly's copy. Any who desire this should in form me when they send their tables, which I will have Band & White, Printers, SDartanburg, S. C., who have the job of the Assembly Minutes this year, to set up promptly, and strike off for you from the Assembly's plates as many copies as you may order, and mail them to you, charging only for the extra work. Thus, you need pre pare but one copy, and will not have to pay for the typesetting. Thos. H. Law, Stated Clerk. Spartanburg, S. C. 'Indian Baskets ? Send For Large Illustrated Catalog of Bankets. I buy direct from Indians. Saleable at Red Cross and Church Bazaars. I pay all postage and take back all unsold. N. Gilham, Highland Springs, California. FOOT COMFORT ASSURED.
