surance over to his relatives.

announce the death of Miss Emm i

what she sull'ered, nor how hard it
was for loving ones to stand by and
see her suffering, and know they1
were powerless to give her case, ex
cept those that have experienced it.
She was attended by two of the
best physicians in the state, and
surrounded by a host of sorrowing
relat ives and friends, and had ev
ery attention. But it pleased our
Heavenly Father, who doeth all
t iings we'!', to call here home. So
on Saturday night September 115th.,
she calmly fell asleap. ' Oh! bless
ed sleep from which none ever
wake to weep." And I do'nt have
a doubt in my mind but that she
went to rest. Oh! what a comfort
this ought to be to those left be
hind, that while we suffer afflict
ions and heart aches here, she is
done with the trials and troubles
of this cold and unfriendly world;
but it is hard to look at things in
this light. We miss her so much,
we miss her everywhere. Too
much could scarcely be said in
prae of Emma. She was a loving
and erbedient daughter and sister,
a kinelVnel affectionate friend, ever
ready to help the afllicted and dis
tressed. She was all that goes to
make aAmrc and upright women,
so genuc, so kinel anu cnccnui, al
ways triving to help others. We
spcafc as one who knows, for we
wce with her a great deal, and feci
like we had lost one of our best
friends. Oh! how can wc write the
words, Emma is dead? Some
times our anguish is so great, wc
arc made to cry out. why is it thus?
But it is not for us to question win-
he docs these things, for he does
all things well, though we can not
always see it that way, but some
day if we are so fortunate as to get
to that better land, wc will sec and
know why these things were. We
have sometimes feared that Em
ma was loved too well for this
world; but to know her was to love
her, she was such a sweet turned
girl, she made friends every where
she went. She leaves a father, mo
ther, one sister, five brothers, and a
host of relatives and friends to
mourn their loss, but they mourn
not as those who have no hojc, for
we feel that our loss was her eternal
gain. The family have our deep

know just how they feel, for we too
have loved ones over the "dark riv
er." and have felt the pain of fiv-

Into each life bouio rain uinst fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary,

And lightning flashes, and thunder's
