The late Thomas Spangler, of
Broken Hill, was born at Moonta in
1866. From boyhood he showed a
marked interest in Church activities,
and at an early age became assistant
and later general secretary of the
Cross Roads Sunday school. In 1888
he moved to Broken Hill, and prior
to Methodist Union was associated
with the Blende Street and Lane Street
Primitive Methodist Churches, occupying
various important positions. After
Union he linked up with the Oxide
Street Church, and has rendered valuable
service in the school and as Trust
secretary, circuit steward, and Church
steward. He was a man of a distinctly
charitable nature. A long list of old age
pensioners were always remembered
with a gift and cheery word at
Christmas. Hospital patients and the
sick and bereaved found in him a practical
friend and true servant of Christ.
The temperance cause also had in him
a keen supporter. Last August, after a
trying sickness, he resolved to spend
the eventide' of his life with his two
sons (Claude and Harold) in Adelaide.
Alas! that rest wasi of short duration.
After a further brief sickness, in which
he manifested his usual cheerfulness,
the end came suddenly on December
31. The , Rev. M. Trezise, who also
buried the late Mrs. T. Spangler (a
devoted helpmate to her husband)
officiated at the graveside, and spoke
of the many excellent qualities of the
deceased. The Rev. A. Dyer conducted
an In Memoriam service at the Oxide
Street Church, Broken Hill. The very
large and representative congregation
bore eloquent testimony to the high
esteem in which Mr. Spangler was held
by all sections of the community. The
text for the occasion, "An Epistle of
Christ," seemed most appropriate, also
the singing of the old tunes so dearly
loved by the deceased. We. feel we
cannot write "finished" after such a life.
Though dead he yet speaketh through
many channels of influence here, whilst
the spirit has entered into higher
