TYACK. r —-i - . ii ■ AN APPRECIATION OF JAMES G. BURROUGHS Once upon a time, in far-off Italy two brothers lived upon little adjoin ing farms. One was single and the other was married. It chanced that a certain year the wheat crop was cut short by drouth, so that each man had barely enough for his own need*. One night the married man lay awake thinking of his brother. “The poor fellow is single, and does not have the comfort and happiness of home as I do. He is worried about his harvest, I will get lip and carry some sheaves of wheat into his field, and h e will be happier." On the same night the bachelor was thtnking of his brother—“ The poor fel low is married, and has a host of bur dots and care® that I do not have to bear. He is doubtless worried about his small harvest, I will get up and carry some of my wheat into his field, and when he se*e the shocks, he wilt be happier ’* Out Into the darkneto of the night went these brothers, each lugging wheat into the other’s field—The moon • came suddenly from behind a cloud • and they stood facing each other with wheat sheaves under their arms. This true story portrays perfectly the disposition and nature of J. E. Burroughs. An honored life closed December 12, 1»32, when the gentle, unassuming spirit of James E. Bur roughs left its earthly tenement and winged its flight into the glorious company of his Savior. All that was high and noble, clean in character, true in ftfth, splendid in business af fair*, all that was Godly and Christian In human character was in th e life of tkis nobid Knight of the Crow.

He united with the Metho dist church in early life, continuing faithful as a stewara until death. There are two tests of Christian life, one found in the Epistle of James: “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this. To visit the fatherless and widows in their af fliction and to keep himself unspotted from the world,’’ and the other is found in the lofty theme of Micah: “What doth the Lord require of thee but to do justly and to walk humbly with thy God?” Mr. Burroughs meas ured up to both of these standards. And so we count It a privilege to -have known him and .trust that the memory of his gentle Christian life will inspire us and his family to high er endeavors in the Masters’ cause, for then we, too. shall find light at evening tide.
