JULIA BERTHA, infant daughter of
?1. C. anil Mrs. Francies Pike, of Orungc

1873, and died February 28th 1870, age 2
years 3 months and 3 days.
Two years, three months and three days
a lingering sunbeam gaveoutits rich guidon
light to cheer and bless die charmed circle
of home, Little HERTHA was a bwccI
little creature, and her picture was diguer
rcotvped upon every heart of the entire
family from her birth, and as the portrait
grows gradually into Rfc-sizc under the
pcncclHngs of the artist, until the last rose
ate touches bloom upon the cheek, and
every feature upon the cold convas appears
to pulsate with real life, eo the image of the
first little girl of the household became
snore und more a reality, with parents and
kindred until Monday", February, 28th.
Five weary mouths of the time, however,
the descending sun of a brief life was par
tially eclipsed by the gathering shadows of
a dcop sorrow, that loo truly foretokened a
premature close of day. tier sun wont down
in tbe morning, but will give light the longer
in the spirit land above us. HERTHA was
natural ly enough a great pet, for she was a
little magnate of wonderful power, and she
drew around her, by the force of her
charms, every member of the family. Reing
unusually fond of the mellowing and soften
ing influcnccsof song, she would invariably
join, ivith broken nulcs, in the prai.?e of her
Saviour, and as if under a brief tuition here,
preparatory to joining the shining ehoristors
above, she sang continually, even while her
tiny feet were being laved by the dividing
waters of the Jordon of Death?her last
words were uttered in song. May our
gracious. Heavenly Father sustain the
bereaved family under this severe stroke
and may thev all meet the angel spirit in
the "many Mansioncd dwelling" in the
Christians promised home.
