Dr. Harry Grattan Guinness.— The death of Dr. Harry Guinness in the fulness of his prime comes as a heavy loss to the Church of God and as a personal sorrow to an unusually large company of friends. Physically, mentally, and spiritually, he was a noble specimen of manhood, and his charming and affectionate personality made him a great inspirational force wherever he moved. He excelled in so many departments of Christian service that it is not easy to single out one above another, yet to us, his advocacy of the missionary cause naturally takes the first place. To all the members of his family, to Mrs. Howard Taylor his sister, and to Dr. G. Whitfield Guinness, his brother, both members of the C.I.M., we tender our deepest and heartfelt sympathy. In these days, when so many brave and noble men are passing from us, we the more earnestly pray that He who of old gave gifts to His Church in the person of apostles and prophets, may still continue to bestow His gracious gifts among us now.
