MEMORIAL SERVICE

MORNINGTON BAPTIST CHURCH. Last evening a special memorial service for the late Mr F. R. Hall was held in the Mornington Baptist Church, where Air Hall had been a member for some years. The Rev. Frank Oldrieve, the minister, preached from the words: “ Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.” (Revelation 14, 13.) In referring to the late member of the church, Air Oldrieve spoke of his connection with the Caversham Baptist Church more than 30 years ago, thei his coming to Mornington, and his having been the secretary of the Mornington Church for the last five w six years. Mr Oldrieve said; “ Our late friend has been a Christian man for many years. He was a loving husband and a faithful father; a most regular attendant at worship on stindays, and rarely absent from the week-evening meetings. Deeply interested in young people, he was for some time a worker in the Sunday School. His consistent Christian life was known to most old inhabitants of Mornington. He was highly respected, greatly trusted, and much loved by tlio.se who knew him best. His los; will be greatly felt by the church, o', which he had boon a devoted servant A simple Christian man. bo is at res from his labors, and bis works d follow him. We thank God for hi consistent life, for his devotion to tin work of the church and denomination and we pray that grace may be give: to us to fojlow in his stops.” The choir rendered the anthem : Evening and Morning ’ under the leadership of Air P. Walker, and it was most effectively given. After the sermon Air H. P. Desmoulins sang as a solo ‘Shadows,’ and it was a fitting and splendid climax to rho sermon, the concluding thought of which had been that for those who “‘die in the Lord ” there is no shadow in the “ Valley of Death.” The organist, Mr Glover, most feelingly played tiie Dead March in ‘ Saul ’ at the conclusion of the service.

ONLY FOUR. I'm just the only cne at home: There's no one left to play, Because the other boys have gone To stay at school all day. I followed them a little way, To peep In a.t the door,* But teacher said I couldn’t stay, ’Cause I was only four. I wish I could! I’d not be late. Like lots of girls and boys. I’d rather have a sponge and slate Than all my baby toys. I’d love to sit and spell and write, And study 'rithmetic. <oh, dear! I guess I’ll try my best To grow up very quick. Speaking at West Norwood Mr Arthur Henderson, M.P., said that although throughout his public life he had stood for peace, the gravity of the present crisis was such tliat he had consented to his three sons joining the H.A.C. and “volunteering for active service.
