yet thoy cannot supply the demand for
"Clifton." In this city, as elsewhere,
it is tho standard by which other Hours

death is peculiarly sa I. For the p?st
year ho had been an extreme sufferer.

typhoid fever, which resulted with his

Him, who on a similar sad occasion,
said : "Thy brot her shall rise again.''
