In Memory of a Brave Shopmate.
Work was resumed in the Canada Glove Works, after stock taking and repairs last week, and one of the first acts of the shop mates of the late Bombardier Moore on the third floor was to place in position a fine Platino life-size portrait of their fellow workman, who now sleeps in Pretoria Cemetery. The portrait bears the inscription: "Our shopmate, W. J. Moore, who, while serving his Queen and country in South Africa, died of enteric fever at Pretoria, Nov. 8th, 1900." The portrait is framed in heavy oak, and is surrounded with Union Jacks. The workmen join in declaring that the deceased was a good workman and are proud to have it known that he was also a good soldier.
