Th solmn Sabbath day has dawned
And I am on the boundless sea.
How sweet and precious Is the
That God is watching over me.
Within His mlgltiy^innd He holds
The restless waves that round me
But none the less His loving arm
Is lifted to protect my soul.
From out the arching skies of blue
He sends His glory In the sun;
It shines In love upon my wqy
No matter where my footsteps run.
Upon the wings of rushing winds
He walks along the pathless deep;
And when the night comes drifting
He gives to His beloved sleep.
Within the calm of this sweet day
My willing soul would linger long.

She had hardly reached her 20th

member of Salem church. She has
been a consistent member since she
Joined four years ago. She was mar-
reid to Mr. George Ones! a little
over two years and has been a faith
ful apd loving wife up to her sad
death. She was upright and true.
She leaves a kind husband, one
auntand one uncle and hosts of
friends to mourn her loss. Last, but
not the least of importance, she
leaves a sweet little babe, which will
never, know a mother’s face, nor a
mother's loving kiss, nor a mother’s
good advice. The Lord grant to
it some kind friend who will supply
a mother’s love. The following poem
expresses the dying mother’s love:
Lay the gem upon my bosom,
Let me feel the sweet warm breath
For a strange chill o’er me passes
And I know that It Is death.
I would gaze upon the treasure
Scarcelygiven ere I go;
Feel his rosy dimple lingers
Wander o’er my cheek of snow.
I am passing through the waters,
But a blessed a shore appears;
Kneel beside mo husband dearest.
Let me kiss away thy tears.
Wrestle with the grief my husband.
Strive from midnight until day,
It may leave an angel’s blessing
When It vanlsheth away.
Lay trie gem upon my bosom
'TIs not long he can be there;
See! how to my heart he nestles,
’Tis the pearl I love to wear.
If In after years beside thee
Sits another In my chair
Though her voice be sweeter music,
Her face than mine more fair.
If a cherub call thee “father,”
Far more beautiful than this
Love thy first born, O, my husband
Turn not from the motherless.
Tell him sometimes of his mother
You can call him by my name
Shield him from the winds of sorrow
U he errs, O gently blame.
Lead him sometimes I am sleeping
I will answer if he calls
And my breath shall stir his ringlets
When my voice in blessing falls.
And wonder whence it came
In his heart when years pass over
He will find his mother's name.
It Is said that every mortal
Walks between two angels Core
Onercoords the lllbut blots it
Before the midnight drear.
Man repentetb, If untancelled.
Then he seals It for the skies
And hlsright angel wepeth
Bowing low with veiled eyes.
I will be his right hand angel.
Sealing up the good for beaven,
Sntrlvtng that the midnight watches
Find no misdeed unforglven.
You will not forget me husband, .
