A Lontion paper says that an adjutant in the Salvation army has aohieved the remarkable feat ot singng 59 hyrnns in 59 minutes. The occasion on wMch this record was made was called a "singing battle." He began with "I Will Follow Jesus," and ïymn after hymn followed swiftly. When he reaehed the Doxology, after singing eight extra hymns, he -was two and a quarter minutes ahead of the stipulated time. When he finished he shouted, "Bless the Lord; l've broken the record."
