Excerpt from the book...WHAT IS THE SALVATION ARMY?If this question were put to the ordinary person of fashion orleisure, how would it be answered?In many cases thus: 'The Salvation Army is a body of people dressed upin a semi-military uniform, or those of them who are women, inunbecoming poke bonnets, who go about the streets making a noise inthe name of God and frightening horses with brass bands. It is underthe rule of an arbitrary old gentleman named Booth, who calls himselfa General, and whose principal trade assets consist in a handsome andunusual face, and an inexhaustible flow of language, which hegenerally delivers from a white motor-car wherever he finds that hecan attract the most attention. He is a clever actor in his way, whohas got a great number of people under his thumb, and I am told thathe has made a large fortune out of the business, like the late prophetDowie, and others of the same sort. The newspapers are always exposinghim; but he knows which side his bread is buttered and does not care.When he is gone no doubt his family will divide up the cash, and weshall hear no more of the Salvation Army!'
