In suoh work be had a superior gift, and many of our oeuntry meeting bouses ere monuments to Ola skill and peresvenacoe. He also spent some time In raising money for «dcra tional purposes. In the old anti-slavery contest he was ta radical working In sym pathy with seeb men as David Thurston and D H. Kandell. He was an exten sive temperance lectnrer, and wisely pro gressive In hie sentiments. He spent cans derable time during the war of the Kebeliion, in the service of the Chiletten Comrolfs'.cn His ectlve life extended over the great and Important events of our country's history darlnr the last cttn'.ury. and In all these he took an In telligent and positive part.
