Sapsford, preached from the text, "Thanks be unto God who giveth us the victory," etc., and the choir ren- dered Stainer's anthem, "What are These," very etfciently.   The citizens of Eltham are invited to meet at the L.O.R. Hall on Satur- day, 18th, at 3 45 p.m., to form a Welcome Home Committee to receive the lads, some of whom may shortly be expected back from the seat of war, and Rev. T. H.
