    Cause: Appendicitis 
    • The secretary for Queensland of the China Inland Mission (Mr. W. R. Smith) intimates that a cable message from China has just reached Melbourne, announcing with deep regret the death of Mr. Robert L. M'Intyre, from appendicitis, two days prior to the despatch of the cable. The news of Mr. M'Intyre's death will be received with deep sorrow by a large circle of friends in Brisbane. As a youth, Mr. M'Intyre was a devoted and earnest worker in connection with the Windsor-road Baptist Church. Some 20 years ago he volunteered for missionary work in China, and all through these years his work had been singularly successful, pioneering into the interior of China, and establishing churches and schools that will last as an evidence of his zeal and devotion to the work of the mission. A few years after commencing work in China, Mr. M'Intyre married Miss Spiller, a devoted worker in connection with the China Inland Mission. Miss Spiller is a native of Gympie, and volunteered for service about the same time as her husband. Her wonderful courage and faith under trying circumstances is told in a booklet issued by the mission. In a letter dated July 31, from Yungning Szechwan, addressed to Mr. W. J, Tunley, Mr. M'Intyre wrote in the highest spirits, acknowledging receipt of a box of bandages, and telling of Red Cross work right in the war zone, between the Provinces of Yunnan and Szechwan. A cable message of sympathy is being sent from Queensland friends to the widow and five children (the two elder boys are at school in Shanghai). A memorial service will be conducted by the Rev. T. Leitch to-morrow evening, at 7 p.m., in the Windsor-road Baptist Church.
