now at hand, and it is possible to
compare that year with previous
years in regard to the number of

means the large! immigration in our

two years besides that has last year's

she tasted the joys of motherhood,

the tender blossom she has given life
lo. is lost 10 sight: her ears are deaf
to ils pathetic cry; the mother's heart
is stilled in silest lastiug sleep.
