In Memoriam Service. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 7 January 1916

In Memoriam Service. On Sunday, December 19th an in memoriam service was held in the IVatchem West Methodist Church. People came from near ana far to honor one from tbeir own midst who had given his life for his kiug and country—namely the late Private William Norman Fielding. Some, ■ idea of the respect in which the lad was held may be gathered from the fact that the occasion saw the church taxed to its utmost seating capacity. The preacher, the Rev C. S. Yar wood, based his remarks on the words "They taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resur rection from the dead." By isolat ing the text his subject was "'The Teaching of tbe Apostles." Almost every occasion on which tbe Apostles appeared in public they made refer ence to the resurrection of Jesus Christ—it was the peroration to almost every sermou they preached. It '.vas not their custom to expatiate upon it, to weave a thread of argu ment ; they simply emphasised the fact of the resurrection. They had seen Christ de...

The Donald Tiirje^ With which is incorporated the Donald Express atid Lands boroogh Times. Hditor, Harold A. Prider. Friday, January 7, 1916. THE PRINCE OF PEACE. Thk year 1916 will usher iu, we all firmly believe, the reign of the Prince of Peace, a reign that will endure because the forces of evil will have been crushingly overthrown. The way to victory is not an easy one. We have a resentless, brutal and wonderfully organised foe to bring to subjection, but we are more sternly resolved than ever that, cost what it will, tbe German army will be beaten to its knees, and the Ger man fleet broken up so completely that it will never again menace peaceful nations. Humanity shall not be crucified upon an Iron Cross, and a mad king march to his world empire through a Golgotha. To attain anything short of what the Allies aim for would mean that the sacriiiices on Gallipoli, iu Flanders, Servia, aud Russia would have been iu vain. In no spirit of revenge, 2nd with no "Hymn of Hate" on I he...
