THE SALVATION ARMY of Newbury (writes a correspondent) has sustained a serious loss in the death of one of its oldest soldiers, Bro. W. Minchin, who, after 22 years of faithful and devoted service, went to his eternal reward on Sunday morning last, after six months’ illness.

He will be missed the more because he has from the time he was converted been an active and earnest worker, having held the position of Band Sergeant, Junior Soldier Sergeant-Major, and Corps Sergeant-Major in succession, and was presented with a long service badge by Mrs. Colonel Wright on Sunday, October 15. His life has been one of willing self-sacrifice in the interest of the Kingdom.

The funeral was conducted by Adjutant Vickers on Wednesday, when a great number of Salvationists and friends took part in the procession to the Cemetery, where an impressive service was held. His favourite hymn, "I'm a soldier bound for glory," was sung, and one or two short addresses were given by those who knew him very intimately.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday evening next, at 6.30, at the Salvation Army Hall, conducted by Ensign Newland and Lieut. Turner.

The Gems are coming!
