Julia Thompson Troy. ”0, for the touch of a vanish’d hand. And the sound of a voice that is still.” I would turn aside from the busy “cares that infest the day”, and place a modest flower on the grave of one who was to me a true friend and loyal comrade. Just when her feet were pas sing from childhood into win some girlhood, there came into our little village, a brown-eyed lassie, the blush on whose cheeks the roses might well envy. At once she won all hearts and no social gathering was complete without the brightness of her presence. Her sweet smile and merry laughter carried sunshine and happiness into all our homes. “Angel of the Backward Look,” you bring to me memories of those days of pleasant compan ionship! As the years passed on, there came many seeking that gift which is “far above ru bies,” her gentle womanly heart. At last, looking backward, half regretfullv at her care-free girl hood, she gave her hand to the chosen one and fared forth on life’s journey, ”0 pure-eved bride; O tender pride!” In loving service, in gentle ministration, as the years went by, there came to her the crown of womanhood, and little children prattled at her knee, “() patient life, 0 tender strife!” Sorrows came to her, as they come to all, disappointments and sadness, but there was no falter ing of trust nor purpose. One said of her—in the hush that follows the sight of one resting so calmnly after “life’s fitful fever”—“she ever met the world with a bright smile and made you feel better and braver whenever her life touched your own.” I might speak of her love for her church—her efficiency in all its work; her organization of the young women into that band of faithful laborers, whose guide and counselor she was, even from her couch of languor and pain. I might tell of her social tri umphs, of her instrumentality in forming that Club, which has broadened the horizon and brightened the lives of so many of our women. But of all these things the world knows; ’tisonly in the heart of an old, old friend that you may find the true story of a noble life. Dear, faithful, loyal heart, sleep on among the violets. ‘‘The unattained In life, at last, When life is past, t>nan ail De gainea, And no more pained, No more distrest, Shalt thou find rest.” L. B. A. Seeks Mate tor Mother. Setting out to find a good hus band for her mother, who wishes to be out on a ranch, “away from the city, is the task a voung woman of Kansas City, Mo., has set for herself. She has written a letter to the mayor asking him to have it published in helping on the work she has undertaken, expressly with her mother’s con sent and approbation. Her let ter follows: “I have a mother and I want to find a good hus band for her. She has two daughters, one eighteen years of age and the other one seventeen; one son, fourteen. She is a good housekeeper, neat and clean, and the man must have a home and plenty to provide for her. She has made so many wishes to be out on a ranch some place away from the city, and I asked her if I would find her a good husband, if she would have him, and she said ‘Yes.’ So I thought' I would advertise for her. She dresses nice and pietty. Any man writing in answer to this must send photograph.” Telephone Cumberland 15 or Stan tonville 212 when you need a plumber. All work guaranteed" L. S. Kendrick.
