pvc a Toronto reporter this account of

teen taries was writing a littlo tract do
genbirr,' the movement, and he wrote on
tho title page: 'Tho Christian mission i<

shoulder, took his pen out of his hand,
rrosscd ont tho word 'volunteer,' and
wrote 'salvation.' Wo liked tho sound
of it, f o ing that, it really describ d what
the organization was-a body formed
??nd united after tho fashion of an anny,
with thc purpose of delivering men from
.in and thc devil. So wo adopted the
name Salvation Army niuo or ten yearn
ago. Thc terms general, captains, lieu
tenants, etc., soon followed. Thc drums,
flags, banners, and the I ?ko were adopted
gradually, in carrying on thc purpose of
attracting the people."
