A. fwrvice was held in the. Gaversham .Methodist Church last night in memory of Mr E. Turley, of Parkside, who died on Tuesday last. Mr Turley came to Dunedin from Staffordshire. England, 4.3 years ago. When the Kew Church opened in 1875, Mr Turley became- one, of its leading officers, and continued in membership until the time of his death. As trustee, Sunday school superintendent, choir master, local preachor, a.nd society steward, ho did good service. When tho Kew Church became the head of a new circuit, five years ago, Mr Turley was appointed to the office of circuit, steward, tho loading officer in a "Methodist church. Thai, office he held at the time of Ilia death. Tho service last night was conducted hv the Rev. E. Drake, who took as his text Isaiah x.w., 8 : " He will swallow up death in victory, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces," etc. Tho preacher contrasted tho Old Testament idea, of death with that of the Xew Testament, the latter esteeming death hut an introduction to a. fuller life in the presence of the Lord Himself. This, was due to the fact that Christ Himself conquered death by rising from the dead and becoming the fir.-a fruits of them that slept. "Thus death brings compensations in its train, for those who die in Christ are freed from sorrow, tsars are wiped away, because the root-cause of tears is removed." Hymns suitable for tho occasion were rendered, and the choir rendered the anthem ' Vital .Spark.' Mr .',. Davidson conducted, and also sang the solo ' Crossing the Bar.' Mr W. Carpenter presided at the organ. The *ervico was most impressive, and there was a largo congregation.
