‘St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. Dunedin, 1865-1913, is an illustrated sketch of the origin and history of this well-known church. U'e all know sonicthing about Knox and the First Churches, but we rarely speak of St. Andrew’s. What we most frequently niv is: "Oil, you mean Dr Waddell's';” In the two | dominant Presbyterian churches there have j been several pulpit changes since 1879, blit while in these " men may come and men may go.” in St. Andrew’s Dr (*• the doctor,” we hear many call him) Waddell goes on for ever. “The souvenir is a splendid record of service both of minister and people faithfully performed. A glance through its most* liuteresthig I pages makes clear how intimately the old- | established Presbyterian churches are re- i la ted to the growth and prosperity of the City. We are much older than when we first- passed Dr Waddell, in 1879 or 1880,' but of him it can bo said: "Age cannot wither him nor custom stale his infinite variety.” We wish him and his church and people many more years of quiet usefulness and social service. T The ‘Windsor Magazine’ for November , j has much to say of the war, is profusely ,! illustrated with battle scenes and pori traits (by, the way. Mr M'Clownn is not I Prime Minister' and Mr Holman is not Attorney-General for New South Wales), and contains among much interesting matter the following ‘ The Men of the .Allied. Armies and "Their Great Traditions,’ ’The Two Grand Duchesses’ (Juatuu Miles Forman), ‘ Tcgohuid: The Gentian Colony , Taken by the Allies After the Declara- , tioh of War,’ ‘The Holy Flower’ (H. , Rider Haggard), ‘ The Umpire's Splendid I tally to the Mother Country.’ ‘ Britain’s Continental Wars; A Retrospect and a Moral’ (Professor W.
