burns on his back and body, though
bis faco and neck were uninjured.
Ile was conscious olmbst until the
end and bore bis excruciating i.ain
with unexpected patience,' passing
away in a beautifully calm manner*
trying to tell his mother of some
thing he was seeing, although she
could understand but little, but no
doubt lt was the angels and the beau
tiful city beyond, of wi tch he had
caught the first enchanting Ylew..
Virgil waa a bright and beautiful
Watched by tho Father all the while.
Ile wanted him, and he alone
Could fill a place there at Hl8 throne.
Glvo him up-let him sloop-The
morning shall break,
Thou .your slumbering darling into
life shall awake,
And parents and baby again shall
To be robed by our God In tho gar
