And the sad casualty that took him so suddenly from his sphere of usefulness Is deeply regretted. Hut regrets will not restore the loss sustained by his untimely death and will be of little worth unless It has the effect to nerve those who remain to redouble their ef forts to repair that loss. The genial David Allen, with his sunshinnv smile and warm grasp of the hnnd, will greet us no more, but wnat n blessed mem ory he bciuenths to thoso who knew him intimately. Oils kindness to his mother Is especially emphasized, his gentleness and tenderness to her in her Inst Illness. To the honor of his mem. ory be It said that he was as tender and gentle with her as a woman could be. That is something worth leaving for lioys and men to imitate. But what shall we say of thoso unforscen acci dents that suddenly fall upon men and strike them down without a moment's warning 7 One wonders If something more could not be dono to safeguard human life, at the R. It. crossings and other places of danger. It would coat money, and much of it, to install elec tric signals, run tho wagon road under the railroad track, or build viaducts, but is not one human Ufa worth more than such cost, especially if thnt life was yours or one near ami dear to you 7 And then what nbout your own countv roads, approaches to bridges nml dangers lurking Just around the corners hidden by hedge fences or high banks of earth.
