.MECHANICAL DEPARTMILN T_.
Movement to Add New Department
to Newberry College Meeting
With Much Success.
A mechanical and engineering de
partment for Newberry college is the
aim of a movement non on foot
among the friends of the college in
-the Southern Lutheran church, and it
is meeting with a hearty response
-.which seems to insure such success
that it is now believed the depart
ment can be added before the opening
-of the next session.
The movement was started in Sa
-vannah some time ago when Capt.
jacob Paulsen subscribed $5oo and a
subscription amounting to some $700
or $8oo more was raised in Savannah.
It is proposed to erect another build
ing on the college campus for the use
of the department at a cos: of some
thing like $5.ooo. It is believed now
that a sufficient amount of money can
be raised by the time of the summer
vacation to begin the erection of the
building soon after commencement
and to complete it before the opening
-f the next session. It is proposed to
raise enough money to erect and equip
the building and to guarantee the sal
ary of a professor for three years.
The friends of the college have un
.dertaken the movement with a zeal
and earnestness that promises to ac
,complish much. The college has had
:a remarkable growth during the past
-several years, and it was only several
months ago that a handsome new
building, for use as recitation rooms
and society halls, erected at a cost of
$20,ooo, was dedicated.

MR. SEABROOK'S NEW BOOK.
"Immortality," a Unique and Compre
hensive Treatment of the Great
IMMORTALITY. By Rev. William
L. Seabrook, 12 mo. cloth, 203 pag
e-. The Vir Publishing Co., Phila
delphia, Pa.; London, Eng. Price I
$1.1o postpaid. (For sale at Mayes I
Book Store, Newberry, S. C.)
It was a nappy inspiration that led
Mr. Seabrook to produce this little
volume. It is timely, for never did
his lofty theme occupy the attention
of the world more than today. Mr.
Seabrook has contributed a unique
treatment of his great subject. The
books that have been written on it
are almost numberless, but we know
of none like this. It is not unique in
the sense that any new or startling
principle has been formulated
or any unusual speculation has
been indulged - in, but be
cause the thought which runs
through the book is an entirely new
combination of the great facts and ar
guments which show that immortality
must be. Cold, philosophic reasoning
and scientific speculation have been
fairly faced and discussed in their re
lations to the subject, but the book is
more than a logical treatment from
an argumentative viewpoint. The
fact of immortality, the author holds,
is a thing susceptible of other and
more satisfying proofs than simple
logic can afford with rule and line.
The subject is approached from the
"heart" as well as the "head." The
finer intuitive emotions planted in
the breast of every man, and which
have caused all races from the begin
ning to believe in and hope for life
eternal, afford to the author's mind a
far more comforting authentication of
the truth. Coupled and interwoven
with love which unites man to man
and all to God, it forms a cumulative
plea which must needs be convincing.
The influence of revelation pervades
the whole. The treatment is logical,
but not cold. It is emotional but not]
unreasonable. It is deeply religious
but not dogmatic.
The striking thing about the work is
the manner in which the different meth
ods of treating the subject are com
bined to form a unity. Science and
philosophy have been searched to
show the rationality of the hope of im
mortality, but the hope is intuitive,
enduring for all time, and beyond the.
necessity of absolute demonstration.
The argument is one that will bear
analysis as a mere argument, but the:
book is also a message of personal.
comfort to the hearts of those who
look for a personal re,surrection and
reunion in Christ. The graceful style
and language, as well as the many ref
erences to and contributionsfromphil
osophy, poetry, human experience and
revelation, show that the author la
bored long and t1mtiringly and was
well acquainted with thc magnitude
of his task. His wide reading and
knowledge of the li-erature~ of the
subject, combined with his large heart
ed sympathy for all who sorrowv, and
especially for those to whomr he dedi
cates his book. "all who have loved
ones in the land o' the leal." well
qualify him for writing it.
But it will prove not only a comfort
to those who have stood beneath the
shadow. All who love good literature
will be charmed by the rhythm of its
flowing sentences. Those .who are
troubled with doubts will find the
faith of their childhood strengthened
by reading this beautiful message of
conidence. Those who trust will be
conirmed in their faith. Many will
fnd their chief interest in the fact that
the very best gems from the poets,
some well knowvn, others that many
will here perhaps find for the first
time, and will be made glad in finding
them, are used to illustrate and
brighten its pages. It is predicted
that this little volurt.e will find a large
place in the literature of the future
lif. Its appearance at the Easter
eason is peculiarly appro)priate. and
it will make a beautiful Easter gift.
