every minute of this trying period.
"It was a big job well done and an

commendation of the public and the
press of the city.
“And now as we approach the eve
of a new year it is my sincere wish
that it may be one of great hajjpi
ness and prosperity for my co-work
ers in the Washington post office.”

Must we the lonely ones bear'

Prayers and tears were all in vain;
Happy angels came and bore you
From this world of foil arid’ pain
