I have heard so much said about
the influenza, that I wish to drop a
thought. Some seem to think it best
not to go where any one has it; arid
not to go to funerals. Will we let
the dead bury the dead? Will we
take man's wav of looking at things ?
I will say no. I want us not to forget
the Great Book, the Book. In this
trvinff time let us not forget the
Great God.4 the ' father of Abraham
and Isaac and Jacob,-and if our Mak
er teaches us not to visit ' the siek
then- we - will not be sruilty of in, and
I move that -we turn to . the Book and
see if it don't say to visit the sick and
weeD with them that weep, and re
joice with them that rejoice, and to do
Erood to all men.especially those of the
household-of faith. Now God -said
to pray for our enemy, and to love
our; neighbor as otuself. " .

Saluda Seminary reopened Oct. 28
temporary quarters. The old
school house was torn down early in
the summer and work begun on a
new building. Because of transpor
tation facilities our government is
sued a temporary order that building
material for war purposes only, could
be moved. This caused a delay in our
building operations. Now, however,
work has been resumed and this Week
the roof is being put on the boys' dormitory.
Friends of the Seminary will be
glad to learn that the school standard
is being raised to a fully accredited
12 grade High School. This year we

year the twelfth grade will be added.
