years. His remains were laid to
rest in Mt. Pleasant cemetery
Tho angel of death camo and
visited our home and took for iic J

choir our dear brother. God called j
and he gladly answered the thrice
welcomed summons. While we
grieved to give him up w> rejoice
that he is at rest in heaven. There
is a vacant seat by the fireside
which never can be filled. We
listen in vain for a foot step light,
a step that forever is still. There
is an aching void in our hearts to
day, a void which lime can never
fill, but wo bow submissively Io
tho will of our father, knowing he
doeth all things well. Farewell,
dear Irven, wo know that thou
art gono from us and can never re
turn, but thank God wo can go lo
you whero loved ones never part.
Lovely tho home, sad tho hours,
Since our dear one has gone;
Hut oh! a brighter home than ours
In Hoavon is now her own.
This lovely bud so fair,
(hilled hence by early doom
To ahow how BWoet a llower
In paradise would bloom,
You had a beautiful star
That mado your path so bright;
It is shining in Heaven now,
In daylight, for there is no light.
Yet again, wo hope to meet thoe
When tho day of lifo is tied,
And in Heaven with joy to greet thee
Whero no larowull tears aro shed.
