-Rev. J. M. Reimensnyder, D. D., celebrated, August 29, the twenty-fifth anniversary of his pastorate of Trinity Church, Milton, Pa. Dur-. ing this pastorate there have been received into church membership 905 persons, the contributions have amounted to $83,468, of which $18,140 was for beneficence.

--Rev. Herbert D. Shimer was installed pastor of St. John's Church, Hudson, N. Y., September 11. Rev. Shimer succeeds Rev. Paul Koller.

--On Sunday, June 16, the English Lutheran Church of the Twin City (Berlin-Waterloo), Ontario, was temporarily organized by the election of a secretary and a treasurer, after the morning service in Concordia Hall, Berlin. Over 100 persons attended the two services, which were conducted by the Canada field missionary, Rev. Milton J. Bieber. On the following Sunday a Sunday school was started, with 23 members, and now numbers 51. On September 11 woman's missionary society was organized, and on September 19 a Luther League took shape. The congregation and its organizations are steadily growing. Berlin is a growing city of 16,000 population and has now four Lutheran congregations: St. Peter's, 3,400 souls, Rev. F. E. Oberlander, pastor; St. Paul's, 1,800 souls, Rev. W. C. Brese, pastor; St. Matthew's, 2,000 souls, Rev. E. Hoffman, pastor (all German congregations, though some English services), and the English Lutheran, recently started. Waterloo has 5,000 population and its St. John's Church has 2,000 souls. Rev. E. Bocklemann is the pastor. The Eastern Canada Theological Seminary, organized last year, is situated in Waterloo. It began its second year on Wednesday, September 25, with six students.

-A triple marriage ceremony was performed at the parsonage of the Lutheran Church, at Riverside, Cal., by the pastor, Rev. R. W. Mottern, in which all of the six young people married are members of the Lutheran Church.

-From the estate of the late Rev. George Baughman the Ohio Synod receives $28,000, in addition to his home at Eaton, Ohio. From G. D. Simon the same synod has received

$60,000, and from the estate of the late J. A. Schulze $10,000; from H. J. Hespenhide, $2,000. Other small legacies and scholarships were reported amounting to $21,000. These figures should be quite an encouragement to the synod.

-In a recent issue The Lutheran prints the following statement and comment: "It has been computed on good authority that there are 50,000 Norwegian farmers in Minnesota, whose land is worth about $600,000,000. In North Dakota Norwegian farmers own $490,000,000 worth of land. Add to this what the Swedes and the Danes own in these two States (where the two combined are not nearly as strong as the Norwegians), and the wealth of these sturdy descendants of the Vikings is not much below $2,000,000,000. Here are figures that tell the story of the rapid growth of the Lutheran Church in this section. The Scandinavians were not afraid of soiling their hands, and they believed that tilling the soil was one of the very noblest and most useful vocations to engage in. They brought their religion with them to the farms and God blessed them and their labors more abundantly than He had ever blessed the tribes of Israel in Canaan. They established schools and trained a native ministry, and are today setting a pace for the older Lutheran bodies which the latter find it impossible to follow. Think of five seminaries, seven colleges and fourteen academies of Lutheran extraction in two States of the Union! This speaks volumes for Scandinavian thrift and liberality. What would happen further East if our Lutheran wealth were as freely dedicated to the Church?"

F.

A. Bowers spoke on "Overcoming Opposition." Both subjects were thoroughly discussed.

At the evening session Rev. C. Armand Miller, D. D., addressed the convention on "Modern Rationalism and the Lutheran Faith." Dr. Miller held the convention spellbound for over half an hour in one of the most powerful addresses ever delivered before this League.
