NEW CHAIR IS INSTALLED The opening exercises of tho coming session of Untoti Theological Seminary Will ho held lu the Seminary chapel Wed? nesday afternoon of this wool? at 1 o'clock. Tho address of the occasion will he delivered by Rev. Dr. Thos. It, En? glish, of tho faculty. Practically all tho studenti! uf the middle and senior classes will return to continuo their course, while an unusually large Junior cla.ss has been enrolled. . Tlio total enrollment will be about sixty, which is an advance over tho preceding: five years. This will bo the first session ?G the Seminary under the new system miopted by iho board of trust oca at their last annual meeting' In May last. At that timo the Rev. Walter W. Moore, D. 15., I_L. D., was elected president of the institutilon. This election came as c just recognition of Dr. "Moore's long and efficient service for the Seminary anil Cor the Southern Presbyterian church. He lias been connectod with this Institution since IS??!, during the largor part of which timo ho luis hold the MeCormick professorship of Hebrew language and literature and Old Testament exergesls. His faithful work in heha.lf of the Sem? inary bus been a most important factor in placing It in the position'?.which it now occupies at tho head of all the theological institutions ot. the southern Church, and the friends of this important part? ?f the church work. are. eminently gratified that Dr. Mooro has thus been placed in immediate, control. AN ASSISTANT. ; The increasing duties a.nd responsibili? ties devolving upon Dr. Moore because of his call to the presidency of the Semin? ary ha? made? necessary tho appointment of an assistant in his department, and tho board has appointed to that position Rev, J. Gray McAllister, who was Dr. Moore's substitute two years ago? while the latter was traveling atoroad. Mr. McAllister has since that time been pas? tor of tho Presbyterian church at Farm vlllo. Va., but has resigned his work there, and will enter upon his new duties nt the opening of tlie Seminari' this veo):. The many friends ot Dr. G. B. Strickler, not only in Richmond but throughout the South, regtet exceedingly that the state of bis health will prevent his assump? tion of his regular duties in the depart ment of Systematic Theology. Dr. Btrlckler Is now conflnew to the homo ot bis son-in-law, Dr, Geo. ti. Denny, presi- ? dent of Washington and I>ee University, at Lexington, Va., and it may be several weeks before he will again take up the labors of the department which he has conducted so satisfactorily for a number of years. A NEW FEtATURE. Union Seminai?/ has educated moro min? isters for the Southern Presbyterian Church, than all tito other theological seminaries combined.. Moro than three fourths of tho ministers and foreign mis? sionaries of the ?lfnod of Virginia, and more than two-thirds of those of tho Synod of North Carolina, aro graduates of this Institution, and efforts are being inado continually to Increase the effici? ency of the preparation of tho ministry of thle Church. To this end a new feature has been added in the selection . of Prof. Jumes H. Ralilll, of Illinois, ns Instructor In tho art of expression. Prof. Rollili was a oupll of the celebrated | Dr. I Town, of Bellici College, Oxford, England, and after further study In Dub? lin and France, has been remarkably suc? cessful ns an instructor In America, lie is regarded as the very best in his line, and will add greatly-'to the strength of the present course of preparation in the Seminary. During the summer vacation tho Sem? inary buildings and grounds have been tilled out completely with electric lighting appliances to take the place of the former unsatisfactory ?system of gas lighting, and this will odd immensely to tho comfort and t-tt'racUvchess of seminary life. The:Seminary boarding.department has been completely overhauled and renovated under the direction of Miss Rebecca Smith who has. been, placed 1n charge of this work. Mass Smith formerly occupied a similar position in Agnes' Scott Institute for young ladles at Decatur. Go,, and with hor good tasto a.nd thorough ex? perience will make the matter of first class boarding facilities at reasonable rates no longer a problem.
