SPARKES, JOSEPH JOHN (at A. 1858-63), son of Joseph and Alice Sparkes, was born at Darlington in 1848. His father and mother died when he was quite a boy, and he and his young brothers were taken into the family of his mother's brother, the late John Dunning, of Middlesbrough. School days over he began his business training under his uncle, John Dunning, in the offices of the Middlesbrough Owners, and the iron works of Jones, Dunning, and Company, and for a short time was connected in St. Helen's with an iron business, and in Leeds with a printing business. At the end of 1873, or the beginning of 1874, he went to Rochdale, and entered the service of his uncle, James King, and was in the office of his uncle's form at Rochdale and Manchester down to the autumn of 1891, when he removed to Reading, and to the time of his death acted as the private secretary of his cousin, James Russell King. He had married in 1880 Mary Sophia, the eldest daughter of the late William Pollard. He died suddenly, from apoplexy, on the second of Seventh Month, 1894, at the age of forty-six.

The character of Joseph John Sparkes was that of a simple, cheerful, conscientious Christian, who lived up to his principles. In business he was distinguished by his honesty and straightforwardness, and was unswerving in his adherence to that which he believed to be right. In connection with meeting and general philanthropic work, he was willing to do, not only his share, but much more than his share. He was clerk to the Monthly Meeting on Ministry and Oversight for several years, and he was always ready to undertake the unpretentious appointments incidental to Monthly and Preparative Meeting business. For more than ten years he was the mainstay of Rochdale Meeting. His voice was frequently heard in Meetings for Worship, and after his removal to Reading he became an acknowledged minister. During the whole of his stay in Rochdale he was associated with the Adult School attached to the Chapel for the Destitute founded by the late John Ashworth, for some years with the Good Samaritan Society, and with other philanthropic bodies. In the town he was greatly respected, especially by those interested in earnest religious work. But though of a serious temperament, he had a keen sense of humour. He has many claims to remembrance, the highest of all, perhaps, his readiness to sympathize with, and to help, as far as lay in his power, the poor, the weak, and the unfortunate.

Numerous questions were put by members of the audience to Mr Harrison Jackson, of Weston-super-Mare, at the conclusion of his speech on the work of the League. One was: "Is the League likely to support the Channel Tunnel scheme? "I'm sure I don't know," replied the speaker, amid laughter, "but if it will lead to peace and brotherhood between the countries, the League certainly will support it."

GRANGE RD. BROTHERHOOD

Grange Road Brotherhood had a distinguished visitor on Sunday in the person of Mr. Harrison Jackson, of Weston-super-Mare, known in the movement as "Uncle Harry." This brings the number of churches he has visited to 2,382. Mr. George Askew presided and he was supported by Mr. Thomas Wood. Mr. R. Dow led the devotions. The speaker's subject was "England's Greatest Hour." He referred to the missed opportunity after the last war and stated it was missed through fear. With faith there will be no failing at the end of this war. A lasting peace can only be built upon the foundations of brotherhood. Two solos were contributed by Inspector Farthing. The speaker and soloist were thanked by Mr. J. Davison.

POLEGATE LOSES 'UNCLE HARRY'

The oldest inhabitant at the Bernhard Baron Cottage Homes, Polegate, Mr Harrison Jackson, died last week at the age of 93.

He was a Quaker and a familiar figure, sitting on the lawn with his wide Quaker hat, to all who went to the homes, who knew him as "Uncle Harry." He was often seen with a group of children gathered round him telling them stories.

He was a Lancashire man and a tea-taster by profession, and had spent a lifetime lecturing and writing for peace.

Despite his age he was mentally alert right up to the end, and only a few months before he died he completed a manuscript for a book he had hoped to see published. It contained his reflections on life, on war and peace, and his conviction that good might come out of Communism if it could be fused with Christianity.

Cremation took place at Brighton on Monday and a Friends Memorial Service was held in the evening at the Bernhard Baron Homes.

Not Forgotten

BY the death recently of 93-years old Mr Harrison Jackson, the Bernhard Baron Cottage Homes, Polegate, lost one of its best loved residents. "A character of many parts," was how Mr Charles Haworth, the warden, described him. He was known throughout the Quaker movement for his sincerity and religious fervour.

Another of his "many parts" was that of "tea-tasting"—his job before he retired.

Mr Jackson came to the homes two years ago, and he leaves memories of an infectious sense of humour and a number of more tangible things. His hobbies were painting and metal and wood working, and his output includes a lead model of the homes, a number of trinket boxes, and paintings. Some of his work was on sale at a recent garden party at the homes.

. . . Frederick Andrews, aware of the heart-breaking sorrow she was enduring, asked her to undertake the post of boys' matron and later that of house mistress and hostess at Ackworth. Those who knew her well never ceased to wonder how she contrived to work so hard and yet have the time to spare for those who chanced to find her in her own pretty room. She had a modest income, but contrived to accomplish miracles. She had a keen sense of fun and was also an irresistible collecter of gifts for others, whether she came on behalf of famine stricken Russia, the Bible Society, or to help to compensate for a lost purse.
