As large a crowd as wns there, good

On Sept. Pith, just as evening had

Among a little bed of dowers, she
was laid to rest In the cemetery at
Droad Mouth church on the 14th by
which her little school-mates and
teachers paid great respect by their
little songs and marching.
In her death our littl > band and
school miss her sweet little face and
kindly smile. Uttle Margaret was al

put upon hoi". Her little deeds Of love,
kind words and timid ways can never
be forgotti n. We know that she is
one more angel added to the great

richest blessing upon them in this time
of their sore grief. We know that
God doeth all things for the best so
we bow In humble submission to Him,
and say: "Thy will ho done", and re
