October 1895 Ups and Downs:
With our numbers aggregating nealy 7,000 we must be prepared to see some vacant places in our ranks at the end of every year, and we owe, and give hearfelt thanks to God that the number of htose who have been taken from us by death is small. Compared with any other body of people in the country, we feel we have been signally blessed in the smallness of our death-rate. It is, nevertheless, a very painful thought that so far in each issue of our journal we have had to chronicle the sudden termination of a career, cut short, not by sickness, but in the midst of bright promise, of health and strength. Again does the sorrowful duty devolve upon us, Charles Hope, who came out to Canada in 1892, and had for some time been working steadily at Dorking, left that place about the middle of August for Manitoba, with a view to profiting by the large wages paid during the harvest season. He left his friends in excellent spirits and spoke hopefully of seeing them again shortly. Within two weeks Mr. Terry, of Dorking, received a telegram telling him that Charles had fallen off a load of hay, breaking his neck. Death was instantaneous, and our friend was buried in Manitoba. The sad new was at once conveyed to the Home by Mr. Terry, with a request that it be broken to the mother of poor Charles in England. Thus in three months have lost three of our boys - Charles Hope, James eddington and Wm Ashworth - have been called away without a moments warning. How forcibly this places before us the uncertainty of life, and how strongly should it appeal to every one of us to be ready at all times to answer the call of the Master who "works in a mysterious way" but in whose hands "all things work together for good."
