DEATH OF REV. GEORGE CONDIE, MUTHILL PARISH CHURCH


A feeling of painful surprise and regret prevailed in Muthill and Crieff districts on Monday when the news was received that the Rev. George Condie B.D., parish minister of Muthill, had passed away the previous night (Sunday) in Cromarty Hospital. Mr Condie was laid down for four days with influenza in Nigg Camp, where he had been stationed as a chaplain for the past three months, and, taking a relapse on Saturday last, he never rallied, but died the following evening at the early age of 45. Mrs Condie was notified by wire, and she left for the North on Sunday morning, and was able to be with her husband at the end.
Mr Condie was educated at Hutchison's Grammar School, Glasgow, and the University of that city. He widened his experience by teaching for some three years in the training ship "Empress". During his university career he took a distinguished place in Divinity, and among other prizes he carried off the coveted Dowanhill prize for elocution. His first charge was the parish of Stepps, where he laboured for eight years. In December, 1912, he was inducted to the Parish Church of Muthill. He took an active interest in everything pertaining to the welfare of the parish. His energy and large-heartedness won general admiration. Natural gifts of mind and a forceful personality made a place for him in the community, while his hearty and breezy manner endeared him to all of his friends. He was a member of the School Board, the chaplain of St. John's Lodge (No. 1920) of Freemasons, an assistant Scoutmaster, and president of the Muthill Bowling Club. On the outbreak of war, Mr Condie took an active interest in the formation of the local Volunteer Platoon, and was ultimately gazetted second lieutenant. From the time of receiving a commission as a chaplain he was stationed at Nigg, and was held in much esteem by the officers and men.

MEMORIAL SERVICE

An impressive memorial service was held in the parish Church on Wednesday afternoon, when there was a large congregation of parishioners of all denominations, and representatives of all the public bodies. The Presbytery of Auchterarder attended, and the Rev. A. Campbell, M.A., Crieff, Moderator of Presbytery, presided. The service was conducted by the Rev. Mr Campbell; the Rev. A.B. Wann, D.D., Comrie; the Rev. R.P.R. Anderson, M.A., Muthill United Free Church; and the Rev. H.H. Murray, B.D., Monzie. Mr J.D. Turner, F.R.C.O., Crieff presided at the organ, and at the close of the service the "Dead March" in "Saul" was played. The coffin was carried to the manse by six Freemasons.
On Thursday, the body, which was brought from Cromarty Military Hospital on Tuesday, was taken from Muthill to Glasgow, and interred in Cathcart Cemetery. There was a large representation of the Kirk-Session and other friends; while Captain Housley attended as the representative of the Scottish Command. A number of lovely wreaths were sent by friends, among them one from the officers in Nigg Camp, and one from Muthill Kirk-Session. The service at the grave was conducted by the Rev. J.A.C. M'Kellar, B.D., Cathcart Parish Church, who is also to preach in Muthill on Sunday first.
The Parish Church and United Free Church congregations are to continue to worship together for the present under Mr Anderson, and by arrangement by the two Kirk-Sessions, the services are to be held in the Parish Church until further notice.
After the memorial service a meeting of the Presbytery was held - Rev. A. Campbell, Crieff, Moderator. The rev. R.P.R. Anderson, U.F. Church, Muthill (who had been conducting the joint services in the Parish and U.F. Church during the late Mr Condie's absence) was associated with the Presbytery. The Rev. Mr Campbell was appointed moderator during the vacancy, and the charge will be declared vacant tomorrow.
The Muthill living is understood to be one of the best in the Presbytery of Auchterarder.
