“A dirge for her, the doubly-dead, in
that she Aied so young!!” Whean all Na
ture was rejoicing and singing her glad
■matin songs, she gently closed bar
eyes and went to sleep, to wake in
heaven—-for she fell “asleep in Jesus.”
She had been ill for many months, and
was so anxious to be well again; but- it
was ahvaj-e with her, '“Not my will, <3
God, but Thane be done!" She was so
patient through all her terrible suffer

To look at her was always to think of
some sweet, fragile flower, for “l>er face
was tender as a lily’s leaf with God’s
smile on dt,” aud her crown of golden
hair made one think of the aureole
around the brow of a saint. Here was
a sweet, rare life—like a beautiful strain
otf music or the sweet odor of a flower.
“Tender., toeing, gentle, good,
Wearing Ike roue of womanhood.”
And the bereaved ones will find -eoru-
fwrt in the ■thought that she is safe with
the tender Ohrist;—that she will never
suffer mare. And they will remember
that "grief is God’s own kiss upon a
