' When from the dark and unfa miliar world into which grief plunges us, we grope for a helping hand and long for a reassuring voice. Friend ship responds with futile hand clasp and world-old platitudes. It remfhds us that bereavement is the common lot and time the only healer of its wounds. It urges.us to bear in mind the reunion awaiting us in the bright hereafter -when only the now concerns our stricken lives. - But sometimes there passes from our earthly vision a personality so vivid that it refuses to be associated wih the ordinary conception of death and its sad accompaniments. Mingled with sorrow for their pass ing , is an elation at the successful issue.of their earthly race, the tri umphal reaching of the goal and we tell ourselies that "Death is the golden key that opensthe palace of eternity." Such a one was Mand Porter. Possessed of an unusually bright mentality, keenly'alive to the world around her to the last moment of her earthly existence, the im pression of her passing is one of glorious fulfillment'. Indeed, it was in this wise she herself looked for ward to it simply "a dropping of the blossom that the fruit might swell," and though devoted to hus band and children and the dear child of her sister, that a mysterious provi dence had intrustedto her care, lov ing kindred, friends and neighbors when the premonition of death came to' her she was not resigned but rather full of zest for the great ad venture. Well-versed in the Scrip ture, her fine intellect naturally par took of its beautiful mysticism and to those of us who have heard her give to the' letter a deep spiritual significance, it will always be cher ished experience? But she was not all mystic far from it. She looked condltidns of the every-day world squarely in the face and was rarely deceived by them for she possessed fine common sense. For injustice, cruelty and hypocrisy she had the most withering scorn, but for weak 1ADIES' S U I TS T REDUCED .

To be Mrs. Porter's friend was to share her wide interest in the trend of world-events and in humanity's progress; to laugh at its foibles (how contagious that laugh) and to deplore its weak ness. It was to enter a vast field of speculation as to the race's future and to find her always in the lead, always looking for and finding the image of God in every fellow crea ture even though often blurred and dim. . .' . . To those nearest her, the loss of her visible -presence seems and is an irreparable one but it is well and comforting to remember that she said a short time before her death: "I believe that the hereafter is so beautiful, so altogether satisfying that God does not reveal it to us for fear that we would not be willing to endure life." Her favorite Scrip ture quotation was: "Open thou mine eyes that I may behold won drous things out of thy lavf." Her eyes have been opened forever. A FRIEND. Senatorial Primary Officers.
