Salvation Army. CAPTAIN- FLORRIE PEARCE ON SOCIAL. WORK On Mbudny evening tv number of people were attracted to the Oddfellows'' Hiillj Bowral,. to hear an aditresB from Captain Florrio Pearca on the Army'e- social work. A Bliort innbical programme was first gone through, which included a recitation by Oorps C&det Ada Pearoe,, a aolo from Cap tain Florrie Pearoe with her auto-harp, and a couple of company songs' with piano accompaniment. Ensign- Isabel Duffell and Lieutenant Lizzie Alleu, the officers in charge,, arranged this lecture as a help to their annual social appeal. Last year the Bowral corps raised, we believe, about £15,. and the officers-hope to at least reach that amount this year. Captain Florrie Pearoe commenced her address by saying that she was glad to be baok again to her home in Bowral. She felt sure there was no place like home.. But she would soon be ofFagain—this time' to Westralia.. She realised that to raise the fallen1 was a very beautiful work. Chri...
