At the business meeting afterward it was voted to appropriate funds for informal meetings that are to be held in the rooms of different members for the purpose of increasing acquaintance among the men. Definite steps towards the adoption of Mr. Kidner's suggestion will also be taken soon.
St. Paul's Society.
Rev. Reuben Kidner addressed the St. Paul's Society last evening, suggesting a plan by which the organization might be made to mean more to the members. Most of the leading men in theology in England, at the present day know one another well and the acquaintance almost invariably began with college talks and discussions. The mutual advantages that must have been gained in this way are great, as those can easily believe who have had talks even of the most informal kind on theology or other serious subjects. The St. Paul's Society could surely make no mistake in asking some member to read a short paper on a subject he had looked up and state some views which might serve as subjects for an ensuing discussion. As soon as the first formality disappeared new subjects would arise, and in this way the meetings might be made exceedingly interesting.
