TURIN. The death of Mr. DeWitt Reese, which occurred Inst week in Atlanta, did not bring sorrow alone to the mem bers of his immediate family and to his brothers and sisters, because the hearts of others were deeply touched also. This is especially true of the writer and his family, for in his youth DeWitt made his home with us for a time. Hence we sympahtize with his loved ones ; yet we do not grieve as those who have no hope, for we look forward to a happier meeting with him beyond this vale of teais. "A few more years shull roll, A few more seasons conic. Ami we shall bo with those that rest Asleep within the tomb. “A few more struggles here, A few more partimrs o’er, A few more toils, a few more tears. Ami we shall weep no more.” May Cod bless the fatherless and moth erless chlldern thus left to light life’s battles alone, is the prayer of one who loves them.
