HERBERT LEON COPE. Mr. William A, Buchanan, proprietor of the Lethbridge Ilcrnl I, has been appointed Provincial Librarian of Alberta. Mr. Buchanan has edited The I.^thbri(Jge Herald for a year, and has made it one of the brightest and newsiest weeklies in the Province of Alberta. He received his early training in Peterboi-o". For three years he was city editor of The Toronto Telegram, and for three years was managing director of the St. Thomas Journal. He i.s regarded as thoroughly well fjualifiod to under -take the work ot-organi/.ing the tree library sy.stem of the Alberta Government.-Toronto Globe.

Sixty persons formed a phalanx, three deep, before the communion rail, and took upon themselves the Bolcmn vows of Church membership. It was an impressive sight. There were fathers and mothers who had said, "As for me and my house we will serve the Lord." In many cases son^ and daughters stood with their parents, in one instance an entire fanxily stood together. There were young men and women, who, in the very prime of life were dedicating themselves to Christ. There were younger people, from twelve to fifteen years of age, who were graduating from the Sabbath School into church membership. It was a scene long to be remembered. Rov. J. E. Hughson read the beautiful reception service. Four olTicinli, representing the different departments of church work, assistcil the pastor in giving to the new members the right hand of fellowship. Rev. Herbert Leon Cope, the celebrated lecturer gave an appropriate address. The service ciosod with the doxology which was sung with deep feeling. The auditorium was packed to overflowing, the lecture room and gallery having to be brought into use to accommodate the large audience. Another reception service will be held on EJaater Sunday.
