THE LATE MILTON CASSELL CROZIER
Mr. and Mrs. Ezra Crozier, Justice, Man., have received word from France that their second son, Milton Cassel, made the supreme sarifice on the second day of September 1918. Milton was born Jan. 2nd 1896, becoming a member of the Methodist Church and a sincere, devoted Christian while still in his teens. His quiet retiring dispostiion, coupled with a sincere readiness to serve his fellows, won for him a permanent place in the esteem and affection of all who knew him. He enlisted on Mar. 10, 1917, with the Western University Battalion, No. 196, and went overseas on the 28th of October, the same year. A brother, Harvey Wilcox Crozier, is still on military duty in France. Our deepest sympathy and love go out to the bereaved family. But we mourn not as those without hope. With the eye of faith we behold him amongst "those who have come out of great tribulation and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the lamb."     R.A.H
