Mr. Lambros believes he is the first in America to make a comparative study of Lincoln and Pericles. “Lincoln's birthday is a lesson that teaches us to be more patriotic, bet- 1 ter Americans, so ‘let us have faith to I believe that right .is might and to Im* t firm in that conviction, let us. to the cud. dare do our duty as God gives us to see’.” Mr. Lambros after telling of his arrival in America 33 years ago. “The duty to our country, the val ue of Americanism, the devotion to our religion, no matter what il is. and the true spirit of love to mankind, have been expressed in tin* above quo tation of Abraham Lincoln.” H‘* declared that the Gettysburg ad dress translated in all languages, is j universally known as the greatest la-i mentation in history, and that although it is in a class by itself historical rec ords showed another notable funeral oration delivered in Athens by Peri cles. 2.(KM) years ago. By this study tlie speaker/Said, dt was not his inten tion to compare Lincoln and Pericles, but the striking similarity in the two orations, one representing "the glory Unit was. Greece,” and the other “the glory that is America."

Morgan, I). I)., of Sa. President of Synod. At an impressive, service at St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church yesterday morning at 11 o’clock, Rev. Jj. A. Thomas was officially installed as pastor, the instnllatiton services being conducted by Rev. J. L. Morgan, I). D., of Salisbury, president of the. North Carolina Lutheran Synod. As the of his sermon. Dr. Morgan chose I Timothy 4 :12 "Let no man despise thy youth: he thou an example of a believer, in word, in conversation, in love, in faith, in pur ity." out tinging the. example a pastor should set for his congregation, and the obligation that the members are under to follow the example. The sermon was to both the pastor and the congregation. By being an example in the word, the speaker explained, is meant not only hi the use by the pastor of choice language and clean speech, but also that he should he careful in the word he preaches, that he_preach the saving truth. The members should follow the example in the use o’s their words, making use of no words which offend, and having regard for the feelings of others. In Ins conversation or manner of living, said Dr. Morgan, the preacher or pastor should set a Godly example. This is the easier to do before a people who do tin* same way. The actions of a congregation will reflect on what the pastor is, and it is important that the manner of living of each member should he a good example to others. But the example in word and in manner of living, if they do not come froifi the heart are only false and will" have no effect unless there, be love at tlie bottom of it all. ’ Love or charity is at the of all right living, without charity these things are but “as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal.” Where true love abounds, then there will l>e. evidences' of that love, which is faith. Faith in the word is the for<*e which will make the message of a preacher satisfy both the mind and soul of his hearers. The pastor should have the faith that saves, and tin* faith that serves. A faith that does not manifest itself in its work is a dead faith. If the congregation lias tin* true faith, it will not lie satis fied to sit idly by and keep this faith to itself, but will he. a working and active congregation. The objective that the church needs to set for itself today is the saving of souls —a real, active work, which will he an evidence of our faith. The. pastor and the Christian should ho an example in purity, continued Dr. Morgan, who called attention to the a minister is made a castaway, or when a member of a congregation be comes an object of reproach. The lives of the pastors and the people should be of purity, and should to sonic measure reflect tin* image of their Greater, who is all-pure. . Dr. Morgan then officially installed the. Rev. Mr. Tlmmas as pastor of the St James congregation, placing the Synod's stamp of approval upon tin* pastor's acceptance of the call extended to him last summer by the local con gregation. The service was attended by a large congregation, and special music Juul been arranged by the choir for the oc casion.
