SALVATIONIST NURSES FOR THE FRONT. Six Salvationist nurses have left England for the Transvaal, to administer relief and help to British and Boers alike, and the Christian, Budget gives a brief sketch of Miss Murray, who is in charge of this mission of mercy. Miss Murray is the daughter of Sir John Murray, a General who rendered his country valuable service, and distinguished himself by raising a regiment in the height of the Indian Mutiny. This regiment is known to this day as Murray's Ghat Horse." Miss Murray was born in India, and was educated at Brussels and Boulogne. Her first glimpse of the Salvation Army was when Mrs. Commissioner Booth- Tucker obtained permission from General Mur- ray to hold a meeting among the soldiers in India. At a later date the Murrays settled in Norwood, and in due course the Salvation Army held a field-day at the Crystal Palace. Miss Murray was a season ticket-holder, and was present to see the march past at ten a.m. Soon afterwards she threw in her lot with the warriors, and became a cadet in the Rescue Training Home. Her firstappointment was to the Receiving House, where she remained eight months. Then she was appointed as captain to the Piccadilly Homo, and worked there three years. From rescue work she was transferred to International headquarters to assist in editorial work, and was afterwards promoted ensign, and appointed to the naval and military work, under Major Margaret Allen; while there she took charge of Aldersliot Home. On the eve of her departure for Africa she was made an adjutant by General Booth, as a recognition for her splendid work in the army. Among the other officers are Captain Ashman, Margaret Haines, and Lieutenant Warwicker. Cap- tain Ashman is the son of the Rev. J. W. Ashman, and was educated at Harrow.
