A HOMK FOK FURLOUGHKD
MISSIONARIES.
In the notice which was published
in the Church papers concerning thj
Elizabeth Kinloch Home which was
offered for the use of furloughed mis
sionaries, it was stated that this Home
was located in Sumter, S. C. This
was a mistake. The location is at
Summerville, S. C., about twenty
three miles from Charleston. We
hope that friends who may be inter
ested in this matter may see this cor
rection before they have had time to
be put to any inconvenience by our
mistake in the first announcement.

Delay means increasing hardship and inconvenience

whether the supply of candidates for
the ministry was as encouraging as in
former days. To the first question the
answere were various. We should say
that, on the whole, people go to
church In these Lutheran countries a i
much as they ever did, except that the
coming of the automobile has brought
the habit to some families in the great
cities of going on long tours over the
Sabbath, as it has everywhere. Wher
ever we attended church the church
seemed full; but, of course, there were
several thousand people in the parish
and they were not all there. The
amusement craze, moving picture,
tango and all, has struck Scandinavia,
as it has all other countries and draws
the young people from church. As
to the second point, the supply of
candidates for the ministry, there was
unanimous opinion that it was falling
ofT, as in all other countries. The
same reasons were given that are
given in America: the lack of piety in
the home; thecall of innumerable pro
fessions that have arisen in recent
years offering great inducements to
youth (for instance, in Norway and
Sweden there have been simply enor
mous electrical developments; and
great factories and steel mills and
paper mills have been opened, with
the result that there is a great call
for electrical and mechanical engin
eers). The other professions have de
veloped, such as teaching and com
mercial and business law. These have
all taken many young men who once
would have gone into the ministry. We
imagine one reason exists here that
exists at home, namely that the
churches and the clergy have not in
terested themselves enough in calling
the attention of young men to the op
portunity o?f the ministry.
We have found the same criticism
here that we have found in other parts
of Europe of other denominations,
especially from America, coming in,
often with considerable money, and
not only ministering to the members
of their own communion who might be
residing in the locality, but often pur
suing practices that approached close
to proselytizing. Some pastors were
very bitter on this point. Rumors
were afloat, too, to the effect that some
of the pastors of these foreign com
munions represented the Lutherans to
their constituencies in America, from
whence their funds came, as lacking
in spiritual zeal and needing conver
sion to real Christianity. We know
not how much truth there is in this
rumor. It is a most despicable thing,
if it be true. (The Lutherans in Ger
many have made the same complaints
to us. ) It raises the whole question
whether it would not be better for the
American churches to keep| out of
Christian countries altogether, leav
ing the churches of the various na
tions to minister to their own people,
and the American churches to put all
their resources Into heathen lands.
