Foster a life-long resident of Montville, on April 23, was felt by hosts of sorrowing friends who were privileged to know him in his home life. Mr. Foster was born near his late home in the northern part of Mont ville 70 years ago, and has lived on a por tion of the home farm ever since. His early education was attained in the town school and later at Freedom Academy in Freedom. It is said of him that as a young man he had always the cheerful, jolly disposition that held all through life. When a young man he married Miss Ella Thompson, daughter of Joshua and Mercy Thompson of Montville, who died about 20 years ago, and of w ich union four daughters were born—Mabel and Gertrude dying several years ago, and Grace now Mrs. George Edmunds of Mor rill, and Mary, wife of Raymond Carter of Fairfield. About 15 years ago he again married Mary Abbie Thompson, widow of William W. Thompson of Montville. A brother, Arthur, now in California, sur vives him. Mr. Foster was a life member of Union Harvest Grange and always maintained an interest in its welfare, and for years was a regular attendant at all meetings. Always a home lover, his genial disposition and cheery laugh will be missed by all who were fortunate to visit him in his late home. A good neigh bor, always ready to help the needy and unfortunate, truly it may be said of him, “Enter into the joy of thy reward.” He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, two daughters, a brother and a nephew, Archie T. Knight, who made his home with him since a small boy. Memorial services were held at his late home on Tuesday, April 27, at 11 a. m., conducted by Mrs. Nathan Hunt of Morrill. The house was filled with sorrowing relatives and friends, it being the largest attended funeral the writer has ever seen in this district. Quantities of beautiful (lowers spoke silently of the love and esteem in which the deceased was held. Although he is gone from us, the sunshine of his life will long remain. The remains were laid away in the little neighborhood cemetery pleas antly situated on the Foster farm.

I hung May-baskets at her door For years on every May-day night; I squandered all my little store To buy the flowers and ribbons bright. I’d steal up softly, ring, and run, And watch her from behind the fence, While she peered out in merry fun And of surprise made great pretense. A neighbor boy with fell design Used oft to rouse my anger hot By jeering at these gifts of mine And saying love was tommy-rot. What vicious kicks I’d give his shins The next day in the school-room aisle! I felt no sorrow for such sins For I had her approving smile. Ah, May-days many since have gone; Her baskets 1 shall hang no more; For that boy’s name is graven on The silver plate upon her door. —Adele Barney Wilson, in Brown Book for May.
