Tho New York Sun of January 1 prints

Ilain J. Finn of Hurllngtun, Vt., to hold
his fiancee, Lillian G. Ellman of 1S!3 Uer

.Miss Ellman had said that she would
marry the doctor If lie got to rt before
the new year The young woman was
waiting on tho pier, and thr couple hur
ried to Knights of Pythias hall at 432 Hop
kltiHoti avenue, Rrooklyn, where the mar
riage took place.
"Dr. Fine nearly mlfsed becoming a
husband, he told his friends at tho fes

Itothman, the nsslstnnt wireless operator,
who was washed overboard by a wavp.

The death ot Atlss Mary C. Torrey,
who had been III with pneumonia wlnco
Christmas, occurred Sunday even
ing about eleven o'clock nt the
Torroy family residence at 7G South
Prospect street. She was M years of age,
and sho Is urvlved by n sister, Mrs. II. '
A. P. Toncy; a brother, the Uev. Joseph
Torrey; and a niece, .Miss I'licy Torrey.
"II of HiIh city. Her death removes u!
gracious and very charming llgurn. An 1
appreciation of her character and sketch
of her life Is here appended. Tho funeral i
was held from her loiiK-tlmc homo Tiles- '
day afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Tho Uov. 8.
!. Uarnos, acting pastor of the First
Church, officiated, assisted by Pro-1
fessor J. E. Goodrich. The Interment was
In tho Torrey family lot In Elmwood j
Allss Torrey was the eldest child of tho !
Into Professor Joseph Torrey of the Uni
versity of Vermont, bae was born In 1M1 j
in the same room In the houso on South .
Prospect street In which who died, tho
houso which has always bpen her home.
Left motherless at the age of nine, sho
very early assumed the care of tho houso
and family and dcvtl"ied a sense of re
sponsibility, which was one of her lead
ing characteristics throughtout her long
Sho was highly gifted, Intellectually,
and of studious tastes and habits. She
uttended school In Hurllngtonand InChel
sea for short periods, but her studies
were chiefly with her father, under whose
guidance she became an accomplished
linguist, a student of history and philos
ophy, nnd developed a literary sense and
skill which grow with her years. Hofore
sho was 2" she taught for a year In the
high school at Hartford under Thomas
K. Upccher as principal, and later shu
taught for a time In Mrs. Worcester'?
school In Rurllngton.
At tho age of 111 she united with the
First Church, of which sne was alwavs .i
faithful and devoted mernb. r, at
the time of her death proba
bly the oldest living member. And
she will be remembered as tho au
thor of the two line hymns written for
the centennial celebration of tho churcn
In 1P0I. For more than 50 yoars sho was
a teacher In its Sunday school, where
her knowledge of the Hlble nnd her
Christian counsol were Impnrted to a
largo proportion of tho young women of
the parish during that period. She was
Interested in tho missionary work of the
church nnd In the charitable work of the
town, giving to them generously of her
means, as well ns of her time nnd labor
and Influence. Sho was a teacher In the
old charity school. She was Alias Lucia
Wheeler's collaborator and ndvlser In
founding the Home for Destitute Chil
dren, wns for a tlui" president of Its
board of managers, and always a mem
ber of Its advisory committee. Sho was
president of the Young Ladles' Christian
association, a society organised In the
'To's for religious and charitable work,
and for years she led a Ulble class under
Perhaps the work Into which she put
the largest proportion of her heart nnd
strength in her later years was that of
the Vermont branch of the woman's
board of missions, in which she held the
cilice of foreign secretnry. Her duty was
to correspond with the missionaries
abroad and report their work and their
needs to the. society at home. It was a
labor of love conscientiously performed
for 30 yenrs, and to tho great regret of
her co-workers wns reluctantly laid down
hy her last September, when she felt no
longer equal to Its demand.
Alls? Torroy loved music, and tho best
things In art nnd literature. She was
fond of flowers nnd a successful practi
cal gardener, nnd she was skilled in var
ious household arts.
All these varied activities were carried
on under tho handicap of frail physical
health, but a strong will, great tenacity of
purpose, and persistent Industry, with a
wise care for her health, and serenity
of temper, enabled her to accomplish
tasks which might put many a bustling
worker to shame.
Her modesty was as unusual m hor
attainments. She never thought of her
self ns specially gifted or accomplished.
Sho was most appreciative of til1 efforts
of others and always most charitable In
her criticisms. Devoted to her family,
loyal to her friends, thoughtful for her
neighbors, she leaves a largo place va
rant. Allss Torrey was taken 111 on Christ
mas night, with what soon proved to bo
pneumonia. She had seemed to her
friends lo have been unusually frail for
some months past, and she had not suffi
cient vitality to resist tho dlseaso. though
at times her friends hoped against hope
that she might rally.
With her deatli hius passed not only one
of Burlington's oldest inhabitants, but
a typical New England woman of tho
old school; an emlodlnicnt, ns tho
atlsteie beauty of her countenance Indi
cated, of a gentle, puritan typo of cul
ture and religion, which has alius! be
come too rare.

I wish, I wish to be a poet!
1 want to write of flowers and fountains!
l want to wrlto of woods and mountains!
I want to write of weepi,B willows!
I wnnt to write of seething billows'
I want to write of Krs and Klanc. '
I want to write of sylvan dances!
I wnnt to write of lovely ikies!
I wnnt to write of lovlnir tleel
1 want to use the midnight oil
And hammer out with tedious toll
These rhymes with a poetic mania,
And shro a Uurel with Urania!
And when I've been vouchsafed these
I think til tear up all my verses.
