The pastor spoke beautifully and said that he regretted that he had not the time to see more of her friends and have them pay a tribute to her mem ory; he said he had heard such good things since he had arrived here both of the deceased and her sainted hus band. He then asked Mrs. Leith to talk, and her remarks were lovely. Said she had known her when they were young girls. I cannot tell you all,' she said, 'but everyone who heard her know that what she said was true of her devotion to the church, her home and family, and to the temper ance cause. Said she had heard her say in speaking of the work that she would be faithful to It while she lived, and when she was dead she wanted the white ribbon on her breast. I do not know whether they forgot to put It there or not, but I shall pin It there before the casket is closed,' and she took off her own and pinned it on the breast of her friend, while tears ran down her face as she walked away."
