Miscellaneous Articles on the same page:

THE LATE BISHOP SMYTHIES
We regret to hear of the death of the Right Rev. Charles Alan Smythies, Bishop of Zanzibar and Missionary Bishop in East Africa. A message has been received at the office of the Universities Mission to Central Africa from the Secretary, the Rev. Duncan Travers, dated Aden, May 10, stating that Bishop Smythies died on the previous Monday morning (May 7) of fever, and was buried at sea. Mr. Travers had been on a visit to Zanzibar, and was known to be returning by the French mail which left there on May 3, and it is supposed that Bishop Smythies, being unwell, started with him for Aden for the benefit of the sea voyage, but that his illness took a serious turn, and that he died four days after leaving Zanzibar. Bishop Smythies was born in 1844, and educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. in 1867, proceeding M.A. in 1871, and receiving the degree D.D. in 1883. From 1869 to 1872 he was curate of Great Marlow, and from 1872 to 1880 at Roath, Glamorganshire, where he was vicar from 1880 to 1883. In 1890 he received the honorary degree of D.D. from the Universities of Oxford and Durham. He was consecrated Missionary Bishop of Central Africa in St. Paul’s Cathedral on November 30, 1883, the title being changed to that of Lord Bishop of Zanzibar and Missionary Bishop in East Africa, in 1892. As a contemporary points out, his popularity among working men was very great, and on being appointed to the bishopric of Central Africa they presented him with a specially designed portable tool-chest, which always accompanied the Bishop on his travels. In 1891 the Bishop penetrated Nyassaland and laid the foundations of missionary effort there. Last year he returned to England in ill-health, and raised £10,000 as an endowment for a bishopric of Nyassaland.

Mr. Herbert Augustus JENNER, Resident Magistrate of Glen Grey, has accepted the appointment of the Chief of Police in Cape Town. Mr. Jenner joined the old Frontier Armed and Mounted Police a quarter of a century ago, but after six years’ service entered the Civil Service, and became a Civil Commissioner’s clerk. Subsequently he was appointed Captain in Carrington’s Horse, and served at Dordrecht until the outbreak of the war in 1880, when he became Commandant. Later he became Commissioner of Police, and ten years ago was promoted to the Civil Commissionership of Glen Grey.
