the Borrowing relatives of our
departed friend;
All thai is perishable of Law?

ill the cold embrace of dentil,!
within sight of the home where
but a few yours ngo he plighted
his troth to his faithful purtlior
rind helpmate, the ilovoted wife
ami mother of his children.
Sucking relief from u dread
Billic.tion fate decreed that the
tragic struggle with the death
Angel should cease, far iiwny
from the scenes of his child?

turned to become a part ol the
cherished smi of his beloved

In littM striingo, this wonder?

every woman, has his or her
place. Some hi) their life-work

Sooner or later, all must surren?

Lawrence Kelly is none from
the throng ol the living, called
In-net , when bill, little more
than half Hie allotted span
bail been spent, jllhl as his son
hail reached its zenith and in
the uooii diiy of life. Mut,
"Death does'not end all." The
iirst and foremost poet of the
Hilde, when his heilrl was

Inspirol ion \\ riito for ill the

lilghesi i.ciipl ions of life and
liiiiy, ion. lihisj tliose plans, like
all other plans ol this life were

ed lo ?* higher power
We often wonder why this
diktippoiotment, Intl that is mil
for us to know that there is a
? ?oil .supreme, and thai all of Us
should iiow submissively to His
will.
The way is often dark. It is
dill I: Utility for Lawi . nee Kel
ly'S loved ones and I i lends.
Ihe pall hangs heavily o'er this
household, but I i oi 1 willed it So,
and we Iiow reverently to His
decree.

broken ami ihe silver eojil is

tliii s, but tears and sympathy
only aggravate the wounds, un?
less uiit of the surrounding
gloom we can by faith and
trustfulness in i lod, believe that
His sunshine will some day
drive away the clouds.
Kvor modest ami iiiiussiiining
liiy departed friend was not
given tu loud professions or vain
lioaSling^ mi religious, or any
oilier siibjeo.l, yet deep down in
his heart was a well of love and
trust which was constant in its
How toward the Savior of man?
kind, conscious of the fact that
untiling abides save (Jod and
Hie SOIll.
There is nothing oiuluriug in
this world except ? lod and His
law. This is the lesson taught
hy this house of mourning to?
day. W hill is life'.' Tell us, oh
friends, from tin- hielt abode of
death, what is life? We ask
this solemn ipiestioii, und no
answ er comes hack to our illi.x
oils hearts. Hut if life on earth
contributes to the life of the
soill, we have the comforting
assurance that all will be Well.
If the soul tills well the place
assigned to it on earth, dis?
charges every duty faithfully
and well, obeys the command;,
of the Creator,scatters benefuc
iiousas opportunities offer for
Ho- betterment of the race, such
'an one, if he have the true spir?
it ol worship, is a child of the
giving, iiucli a lifu we believe
Lawrence Kelly to have lived,
and to one like tins, death, how.
ever sorrowful in its surround?
ings, however sudden, can
bring po feat, rib Itnhappy fore?
bodings, and when friends und
loved ours author around his
silent bier, to bid a last farewell
ns his soul wends its way from
earth to the spirit land, there is
comfort and (h?re is consolation
to ono and all.
Lawrence Kelly believed im?
plicitly in the unmeasured

white llower ofn blameless life
Measured by the highest Im?
mun standards, ho stood Ihe

was as spotless as a maiden's,
ami as unsullied as a rav of

The nlllicted family have
around iheui today hosts of
sympathetic friends, whose
hearts tlirnb in sorrowful unison
in tii,mi bereavement, and the
warm hands of all are stretchy
