Despite his advanced age, the head' of the Salvation Army is ceaselessly active in the service of the army which he commands in fifty-four countries and colonies, and the great administrative duties of the organisation are still carried out by the founder of the movement. He has travelled over a wide area during the last couple of years, his journeyings including tours of South Africa and North Western Europe. The Queen and the Dowager-Empress Marie received the General at Buckingham Palace last week, and were greatly interested in his accounts of his Continental visit.
