Union Theological Seminary: No
vember 7th, the anniversary of the
birth of the late Rev. A. F. Schauffler,
D. D., for whom the model Sunday
school building on our campus is
named, is always observed at Union
Seminary as Schauffler Day. This
year the occasion was marked by an
address on the salient features of Dr.
Schauffler's life and work and by the
offering of thanks to God for the gift
of such a man to the Church in our
time and for the great service which
he rendered to our Seminary. He was
greatly beloved personally in the Sem
inary community, and his memory is
affectionately cherished here.
Another notable day in each No
vember here is Armistice Day. The
war record of the Seminary is one of
the glories of the institution. Over
a hundred of our men were in the
service, and two of them were killed
in battle. Although it is four years
since the war closed, there are still
in the Seminary fifty-six of these
youthful veterans, all members of Lee
Tate Post of the American Legion.
They marched as a unit in the mili
tary parade with which Richmond cel
ebrated the day.
Mr. A. C. Fellman, of the Brook
lyn Christian Mission to the Hebrews,
himself born a Jew and reborn a
Christian, made an informing address
to the students last week on the evan
gelization of the Jews. Dr. Mclnnes,
the Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem, lec
tured the same week in the City Au
ditorium on present conditions in the
Near East. It was interesting to ob
serve that both he and Mr. Fellman
expressed disapproval of Zionism.
Reformation Day was duly ob
served, as appointed by the General
Assembly, with an address In Schauf
fler Hall on "The Return of John
Hubs to Czecho-Slovakia," and the
Ginter Park church contributed
$200.60 for Protestant relief work in
Staunton: The Second church gave
a pound party to their new minister,
Rev. W. K. Davis, and family. Mr.
Davis came to us recently from Clem
son College church, South Carolina.
The pounding was so generous that
for a while it seemed that the manse
would have to be enlarged to house
it. Our entire church has been fres
coed in old ivory, the organ in gold
leaf, the woodwork in oak, dull, satin
finish, making the interior most beau
tiful. The manse has been newly
painted inside and out, also newly pa
pered. The money for all this im
provement, about $2,700, was given
at one service, the members being
eager and anxious to give. Mr. Davis
has been warmly received by the con
gregation and his many friends. The
church is packed at every morning
service, it being necessary to use the
gallery to accommodate the people.
Mrs. W. T. O'Connor.
Amelia: This church is composed
oT five different congregations, viz.,
the home church at the village and
four chapels, ranging in distance from
three to twelve miles away. Since
the first of April we have conducted
special services in all the congrega
tions. During the latter part of Au
gust we held union services in the
village, with all the churches of the
town co-operating. Dev. D. K. Wal
thall, D. D., of Waynesboro, did the
preaching. East. Hanover Presbyter?
assigned the ministers for the chapels
? Rev. John D. Keith at Jetersville;
Rev. T. A. Painter, Mattoax; Rev. A.
B. Montgomery, Pine Grove, and Li
centiate Rev. W. T. McDonald, Rennie
Memorial. The preaching by all of
these men was of a high order, God'n
people being very much strengthened
and built up by the services. We have
received twenty-one members by pro
fession of faith and two by letter
from other churches. The members
are lighting the church at the village
and the "Willing Workers" with the
co-operation of the other congrega
tions have put lights in the manse.
The Mattoax Auxiliary is studying
"Unfinished Tacks," by Dr. Homer
McMillan. This is their first attempt
with a study class, but it is earnestly
hoped that it is only the beginning.
The Sunday school at Mattoax is or
ganized on the plan adopted by our
Sunday School Committee, including
a class of young ladies taking teacher
training. The Auxiliary and Sunday
school have recently painted the
church and refurnished the pulpit,
adding a great deal to its comfort
and appearance.
Genito: We held our regular series
of services at Genito, when Rev. W.
S. Golden, of Richmond, did fne
preaching for us. While a student
at the Seminary he assisted the pas
tor in the work here, hence he came
back to his first love and found a
warm welcome awaiting hini. His ser
mons were heartily enjoyed by the
people, and they were built up in their
most holy faith.
Providence: This congregation in
Powhatan County has recently paint
ed its church and refurnished the pul
pit, making a wonderful improvement
indeed in the appearance of the house
of God. Rev. W. S. Golden preached
for this church for a week recently.
During his Seminary course he assist
ed the pastor, Rev. D. P. Rogers, at
Providence, as well as at Genito, sa
here, too, he was back home and
among admiring friends. The people
received his high-toned preaching
with affection and were greatly bene
fitted. At the close of the meeting
seven united with the church on pro
fession. Some were children of tho
covenant and some were baptized.
Montgomery : Dr. Robert MeCa.nl in
closed his pastorate in the First
church Sunday, October 22d. At this
service twenty-two new members wern
received into the church, and thirty
two infants were baptized. During
Dr. McCaslin's pastorate of nine years
in this church 2,055 npw members
have 'been received into the church.
Dr. George Lang, of the University of
Alabama, is supplying the pulpit of
this church until a pastor is called.
Good Hope fftureti: This church,
although a member of the Presbytery
of Bast Alabama, was attached a lit
tie over a year ago to the South Dal
las group of Tuscaloosa Presbytery.
Rev. W. R. Henderson, D. D., is the
stated' supply. Recently two young
ladies were received on confession of
their faith, making, in addition to
those who were admitted after a se
ries of services held by Rev. A. G.
Irons last June, eight new members.
This church has a useful and efficient
Woman's Auxiliary. Preaching ser
vices are held one Sabbath in every
month, which are attended by fine
Sylat-auga: On Sunday night, No
vember 5th, this church was filled to
overflowing with a welcome service
to the newly elected pastor, Rev. J.
C. McQueen. The pastors of the other
denominations came and brought
their congregations with them. Many
beautiful things were said about the
growing city and the loyal people.
One thought was very pleasing to the
pastor, when these other pastors said
that the Presbyterians of Sylacauga
are loyal to the church and to their
pastor and they have a great mission
in this growing city. The ladies of
the Auxiliary had the manse done
over, and they furnished it, making
everything so homelike. The pantry
was overflowing with good things to
eat. With the loyal people and the
pastor living here, this church expects
to go forward and do a great work
for the Master. The pastor feels that
his lines have fallen in a pleasant
Marion: Rev. Trigg A. M. Thomas,
D. D., of Kansas City, began a series
of services at the Marion church on
November 5th, which lasted through
the 19th. He is a preacher of re
markable power and fearlessly
preaches the old gospel in an attrac
tive manner. He is being ably assist
ed by Mr. Adlai Loudy, a sweet-voiceu
singer from Johnson City, Tenn. Mr.
Loudy turned from a promising oper
atic career to sing the gospel in evan
gelistic services, and has been very
successful in presenting the gospel in
song. The whole town is interested
and all or the churches of the com
munity are receiving a spiritual quick
ening and an ingathering from these

W. C. Clark, S. C.
Ilulariean, N. <\ (formerly Magnetic
City): For some time a day school
and a Sunday school have been main
tained here, under the supervision of
Rev. T. J. Hutchison, Superintendent
of Home Missions of Holston Presby
tery, with Miss Osma Newton and Miss
Bessie West as teachers. These la
dies have given unsparingly their
t!me and strength to Buladean. Some
months ago Mr. J. L. Gray, an expe
rienced Sunday school worker, was
placed in charge of services at Cov*
Creek and Buladean. In October Rev.
W. C. Young, of Russellville, Tenn..
preached for twelve days in Butode&tn.
The Lord's blessing was manifested,
and there were added to the church
eleven persons by profession and rour
teen persons by letter. There were
ten infant baptisms, seven family al
tars were erected, and a petition of
thirty names was drawn for a church
organization. November 14 th the
church was organized by a commis
sion consisting of Revs. W. C. Young,
T. J. Hutchison, J. A. Martin and
Elder J. L. Gray. The new cnurch
starts well, for it conducts two Sun

was $52.
Washington, Central: Wednesday,
November 8th, the Men's Bible Class
held a social meeting in the lecture
room. The chief feature of the even
ing was a forceful address by Mr.
William Knowles Cooper, General Sec
retary of the Washington Y. M. C. A.
He began by enforcing his belief that
"the Church has a monopoly on reli
gion," and he showed the disastrous
results that ensue when the Church
abandons this her special mission and
goes astray into by-paths. Our pre
sentor, Mr. Earl Carbaugh, also add
ed to the pleasure of the evening by
his singing.
Our pastor, Rev. Dr. James H. Tay
lor, was absent Sunday, Novemrer
12th, as he was preaching to the

morning on the Deity of Christ and
at night on the Manhood of Christ.
