Words will not express,' could they be uttered, and pen caunot describe the anguish of soul we felt when the mes sage came, Margaret is dead." We were expecting it, but we hoped against hope until we knew that she was gone But it is sweet to know that she is done with suffering, that just beyond the veil . that intervenes she is smilingly beckon ing us. With the thousands of tender and loving expressions, none are deeply treasured as her last message to her idolized mother: "Tell mama have been a good girl and I am going home." And to her faithful nurse Miss Mayme: You have been so good to me, and I love you."

"Alone for joy she spreads her wines. And sweet and low her sonnet sinifs t . 'I am going home, 1 am groinj? home.'

An adver tisement of the fair will be found on an other page of the paper. The manage ment propose to make an extraordinary effort for the fair this fall, and, with the aid of the ladies in their splendid exhibition and Mr, Andrews in his poultry and agricultural enterprises, the fair should be and we believe will be the most successful of all tho meetings.
