She is survived by her parents, three sisters and two brothers. Adele had great personal beauty and was richly endowed intellectually. For one so young she was possessed of un usual loveliness of character. Her nature was a sweet one; "Sweet as the new-born day And pure as the drifted snow." Her mother called her "The Little Peace-Maker." Though but a child of eight years of age, she had opened her little heart to God and was a loyal little Christian. It was easy for her to pass from the dear ones on earth to the glorified saints in heaven. Her going was as the fading away of the sunshine on a sweet summer day The short life of this noble little child was not in vane, for the memory ot it will bo an inspiration that will cheer and bless all who knew her. "She is not dead, the child of our af fection, But gone Into that school Where she no longer needs our poor protection, And Christ Himself doth rule. " "In that great cloister's stillness and seclusion, By guardian angels led, Safe from temptation and sin's pol lution, She lives, whom we call dead."

How sad and desolate everything is without her, but heaven is made richer and more real by htr going there. Weep not dear father and mother, some day you will know why clouds have cast their shadows over thee. Though dark thy way, pray on and God in his own good time will lift the clouds and thy pathway will be made brighter by the thought that your darling has gone on before. There was an angel band in heaven That was not quite complete, So God took your dear little Adele To fill the vacant seat; Call not back the dear departed, Anchored safe where storms are o'er, On the border land we left her Soon to meet and part no more. When we leave this world of changes, When we leave this world of care, You shall find your darling Adele In our Father's mansions fair. A Friend.
