THE INDIAN ADVOCATE cannot tear.it from you; eternity cannot rob you of it. And this being is your soul your precious, spiritual, immor tal soul. All things else will leave you property, wealth, family, friends but. this, this will never forsake you. Ifcis yours yours forever and forever; your greatest, your only wealth and treasure.
