The Scripture tells us God made man after his own image and in the dear friend who has' left us we could readily see a fulfillment of his plan. Compton was a young man of high moral tone, a bright mind and a business ca pacity far beyond his physical strength. He was as firm as a true man should be, and at the same time as gentle as a woman. God has indeed stricken his par ents in thus calling him just as he steps into manhood, but' may his beautiful life be a lesson for his brother and sisters who are left to comfort their father and mother.
