There is no doubt but the present condition of

carefully to their expenses. Winter-is coming

use BosciiEE's Gkbmjls Suiter. It never has
failed. One bottle at 73 cents will keep vour

Our mother's gone from earth away
Bright angel bands did her couvcy
To dwell in realms of endless day
And now our path seems dark vnd drear,
Since we've lost the one we loved so dear.
Thou art gone to d weU with Christ up there.
How we miss her none can tell,
The mother that we loved so well,
Hut, alxs! we had to sy farewell.
How oft she has given relief,
And cheered our liesrts in time ot grief,
But now she is st ill mid cold in death;
Her children she has led to mourn ,
And weep around her lonely tomb,
llut still we hope to meet atfain,
There in the realms of light and loie.
We'll meet around the throne of Gmt,
And sing of His redeeming blood.
