A story is told of a Prussian sentinel
stationed on the steeple at Troppau, and
left there when his company retreated.
Tie citizens attempted to take him pris
oner, but the Prussian easily defended
with his bayonet the narrow winding
stair by which alone accesw could be
gained to the steeple. They then.deci
ded 'on reducing him by famine, but the
Prussian having with him a good supply
of cartridges, announced that unless he
was regularly and well fed, he \would
shoot every one who passed in the street
around the church. The good soldier
thus contrived to maintain his position
for two days, when Troppau was re.
occupied by the Prussians, and he was

"What have you done with it ?"

the theft 11"

BERT, aged 24 years, 1 month and 10 days.
Seldom it is that so large a group of
brothers and sisters, as that to which the
deceased belonged, attains maturity of years
before consigning some of its number to the
chill embrace of death. As years advance
the cords of love are more closely drawn,
and more reluctantly the last farewell is ut,
tered. Be it was in the case of the departed
one. Among a band of nine, her death has
made the first void. Hopelessly dark would
have been the grief of those that loved her,
had not the resurrection morn reflected its
brightness upon their hearts. For many
years a member of the Presbyterian Church,
her consistent christlas life gave evidence
of her preparation for death. Though foi
a while tle dark valley seemed lone and
cheerless--though the waves of the River of
Death beat wildly upon her; yet soon she
beheld her Savior's .glory spreading light
through the gloom, and heard his voice stil
ling the troubled waters. lier spirit, we
trust, is reposing in Paradise, there to
await In peaceful bliss, the joyful reunion
of body and soul. J.
