      CHURCH TRIUMPHANT.

      Mr. James Brown.

      Our Franklyn Church, in the Terowie Circuit, was bereft of one of its oldest and best-loved members on February 2. Mr. James Brown, who was the father of Mrs. A. Harding, had passed his ninety-third birthday, and for sixty-six years he had been a member of the Methodist Church. He was converted at the age of twenty-seven, in a Primitive Methodist Church in Driffield, Yorkshire. Yorkshire was both his natal and spiritual birthplace.

      Immediately after his conversion he became interested in the affairs of Christ's kingdom, and up to within a few years of his death he was an active Church worker. He came to South Australia in the year 1852, in the ship "Shackamaxan." His wife died on board just before the vessel reached our coast, and she was buried on the beach by his own hands. His early life in this State was one of struggle and toil, but he was blessed with a sound constitution, a strong will, and a plentiful supply of energy, and these stood him in good stead. His first settled abode in this land was Waterloo, where he took up land and began farming. He at once identified himself with the Primitive Methodist Church in that locality, and held every office in the Church, including that of preacher. From Waterloo he removed to Iron Mine, and thence to Terowie. For the last twenty years he lived at Franklyn with his daughter, Mrs. Harding.

      Until within a few weeks of his death he was a regular attendant at God's house. He was, without exception, the best listener in the congregation; highly respected by all, and dearly loved by all who knew him best. His end was one of profound faith and peace. Resting with full confidence in his Saviour, and with bright and hopeful anticipation, he passed away to the Church Triumphant. He left four daughters, thirty-six grandchildren, and ninety-nine great-grandchildren.
