" Then we must prepare, not to 1 die. but to live. It is easy to prepare 1 to die. lint God calls us to t he more j dilliciilt task and says, "Prepare at once to live." Through his son Jesus Christ, He says. "In my Father's house are many mansions:" "there shall be one tlock and one shepherd:" "fioil w ill be all in all:" "I am the IJesurreet ion jind the Life." So hence- j forth maytiod help us all to prepare to live. The friend for w hom we meet to-day to perform these simple rites of affec tion was withal a modest man.

S It was not the opt imism of t he fledgling who lives on the upland, aloof from all dancer and sorrow and toil. it was the optimism of the strong man who had stood on the hattlciield and faced the foe: who had seen blood and wounds and defeat and death: who had learned the les-on of duty and faithfulness in the stern discipline of the world's most notable war. Vet in spite of it all. he could come through theordenl with the unshaken confidence that all things turn out right in the end. that good ultimately triumphs over evil, that "ijiod's in His Heaven, all's right with the world." It was the optimism of the man who knows. And when the last foe of all confronted this man. it was characteristic of him to face the enemy with a smile and say. "I never felt better in my life." Death can n vcr claim the victory over such in vincible spirit. The president of ihe Cniud States has said that the ideal American citi zen has two characteristics, personal force and charity. Does not the life of our brother meet this formula'- He was n man of personality, of strong convictions, in politics, in religion and in all subjects to which the man of to day is called upon to give his thought. And yet lie was tolerant to those of op posite views. He could number inti mate friends among all parties and creeds, liut charity means more than 1 tolerance. Kvery good cause found in him a helper. He said nothing about his private charities but in a casual wav knowledge often has come to me of families delivered from distress by his bounty. Sometimes people sav of a man when he is gone that his place iu the com ! Hescock, Charles 11. L'pham, Fred T. Stewart, and John A. Stafford. The i burial took place in the Fisk lot in Prospect Hill cemetery under the rit , ual of the (irand Army. The funeral w as directed by Col. 11. 12. Taylor and ! Col. Charles A. Miles. The honorary bearers were Judge James M. Tyler of ; Brattleboro. Judge William C. Hol- brook of New York city, a member of Col. Hooker's regiment in the Civil war, W. C. Mitchell and li. (i.

On two occasions they were on the verge of scoring but were unable to do so on account of Monroe's ability to fool the batters. In the fifth inning after two were out Shea reached first on an error after striking out and Hiley followed with a two-bagger which sent Shea to third. Dunlevy knocked a hot grounder to short but it was fielded quickly and the side retired. In the eighth inning Bean led otT with a hit. W. Kaine went out on a passed ball. With men on sec ond and third ami Frost at bat it looked like a tie at lea.-t but Frost took that occasion to make his only strike! out and J.' Kaine retired the side on . a Hy to ort. Both Monroe and Olliver pitched ; well, the latter keeping up his record ' as a sharp fielder although he missed an easy fly after stopping several hard grounders. Hiley swallowed everything iu centrefield and made one of the only : two doubles iu the game. Johnson kept up his batting average, tutting the hall Reunion of Class of 1888. Fourteen members of the class of lsss of the Brattleboro High school participated iu an exceedingly pleas . ant reunion at Spotford lake yesterday. The class met in the school building at P o'clock and after visiting the old : ' recitation rooms and ringing the bell ! started for the lake by tally-ho. The I morning was spent at the cottage of ) Linn I.). Taylor, president of the class, j and at :i:.'i0 the class adjourned to Sil- j verdale where a banouet was served. , ; After the banquet a steamer ride around the lake was enjoyed and the class attended a ba-e ball game at Pine Grove Springs. On returning to Sil verdale a brief program took place, consisting of toasts by L. I). Taylor, Maud L. Kmerson, E. Burr Smith, L. Eveline Merritt, Maurice P.

It was voted to hold another reunion in l'.Mo. A pleasing feature of the reun ion were the souvenir menus with por traits of Principal B. F. Biugham and the school building.
