HUGUENOT EVANGELICAL SOCIETY* At the recent annual meeting of the Huguenot Evangelical Society, held at the First Presbyterian church, Richmond, Rev. W. H. Burkhardt, rector of Grace Episcopal church, was elected advisory president in the place of Rev. J. G. Scott, who resigned af ter two years of faithful service. Mrs. T. A. Cary, president of the Executive Committee, also after many years of service, felt obliged to resign. Miss Kate P. Meade was elected in her place. All the other officers were re elected. The following is a part of a letter received by the treasurer from Rev. Daniel Monod, who is supported by the society. He is pastor at May beuge, an important Home Mission station of the Protestant Church of France. He writes, on September 7th, that he had just been able to move into the manse which was begun be fore the war and is now at last com pleted. Of the church, which was bad ly injured during the war, he says: "We hope to complete its restoration during this year." He then goes on to say: "I have a colleague this year. Before the war there was a second pastor, who had especial charge of the popular work at Sous-le-Bois. We could not replace him after the war. 6% First Mortgage g%% Real Estate Bonds O Denominations $100, $500 and $1000 American Trust Company Tenth and Main Streets, Richmond, Virginia.
