His death has brought the bittei I
cup of sorrow to the lips of friends
It is sad at any time to stand be
side the bed of the dying and watch
life's ebbing tide drifting the lovetd

the great ocean of eternity. We can
meet the pain of parking with some
degree of fortitude; but the sting of
death, in all of its agonizing features,
bursts upon us in 'all of its horror
wben we part nith a loved one in the
rosy flush of life and reoeivtj tbemu
back in the cold embrace of that,
grim monster, Death. None but
those who have sat in the shadow of
a great bereavement can justly weigh
such a sorrow as this.
