MRS. EVELINA MORVORIt COlTEE.
After a long and painful illness
this noble christian woman died at

the2Gthday of June, in the uMh
year of her age. She was the daugh
ter of Josiah F. and Jane B. Morford.

to Chatham Coffee, with whom she
lived a happy life until his death, a
little over a year ago. She loaves
three daughters, two brothers and
one sister, ar.d an innumerable host
of friends to mourn her departure.
. In early life she gave herself to the
Saviour, and was ono of the first
members of the Presbyterian Church
of this place. Her life was an ear
nest and humble walk of faith. She
was a modest, retiring woman, and
only to most intimate friends did she
ever speak of her inward christian
life, but her faith was manifested by
her daily works of love and mercy.
She was a woman of quick mind,
clear judgment, tender feelings, and
strong convictions. She was exceed
ingly gentle and quiet in all her
ways, yet she was immovable as a
rock in her devotion to the right. As
a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, a
member of the church or of society,
shewasin all an humble, earnest
christian, trying constantly to realize
her Lord's will. She hath won the
victory and obtained the crown. The
community join their sorrow with
sorrow of her loved ones, and the
extend to them their sympathy
in their great bereavement.

A Fig in a Passenger Coach.
Jilt. Editou: Through the col
umns of your valuable journal I want
to protest against the practice some of
our rail roads have of permitting hogs
to ride in the same coach with decent
t eople. On a recent trip one of these
objectionable animals, not of the
Berkshire breed, but of the "razor
back" kind, lean and long, with
white face and black hair, and differ
ing from either of the above breeds in
that he walked on his hind legs,
boarded the train with a ticket good
for one seat. Instead of occupying
only what he had paid for lie monop
olized the place intended for fovr.
placing his high hat and grip in one,
his long legs in another and his body
in the third and fourth, thus stretch
ing himself out for a wallow, which
he seemed to enjoy to the discomfort
of a lady and her aged and invalid
father, who were told they were
trespassing on his rights and were
forced to take a seat on the sunny side
of the car with the rest of us common
people. I am an old traveler, but
have yet to see so great a breach of
good manners. Such supreme selfish
ness I hope never to meet again in
my travels. Yours,
