Thua iwhlfi on earth Iniquities abound

These have been gained from centuries of strife,
And long resisted have been won at last
Through suffering in all ages ot the past
Great Truth herself for us all these has gained,
For us the long laborious strife sustained,
Bearing these gifts of God through myriad years,
She comes to us. In sweat and blood and tears.
Obscure, by taunts and mocklngs harshly schooled.
Despised, denounced, rejected, ridiculed,
Suffering the stroke of power, the scorn of pride,
Reviled, tormented, scourged and crucified;
Until at last the awful pathway o'er,
She rises up to the right hand of power,
And over all who bless, and all who curse.
Reigns the throned monarch of the universe
And she shall reign, till all her work complete,
All earthly things be put beneath her feet

Chapel Hill, June 18 A good num

he proceeded to an enrollment or tne

The pupils then dispersed to the vari

the recitations being over. President

THE LETTER FROM MR. ROSS.
Philadelphia. June 9. 1879
Bear Madam .-Your kind letter of

reached me this a. m. Mrs. lioss also
r"ivArt a Tatter from vori a few months

tf?a Hmo .ihnf..ahA wnnlil rfinlv to it.
She spoke of it as one of the- kindest of
the marry? tetters j written to her by
strangers since the cruel abduction of
our dear little boy. I suppose in con
sequence of the many cares incident to
her familv duties, as well as the subject
being a very sore one to her, she defer
red writmsr. 1 or some weeKS sne nas
been auite ill and now is very much
It is truly wonderful how well she
has borne ud under this lone continued
trial. For nearly five years she has
been in a constant state of suspense and
expectancy, but her faith has never wa
vered that God in His mercy would
either restore her dear boy, or that
some way would be opened lay which
we would learn what has been done
with the child; but the continued
strain and frequent disappointments
have been at last too mucn tor ner
physical strength, and her nervous sys
tem has become shattered. This last
trip to North Carolina referred to in
the cutting you sent seems to have dis
appointed her more than any for a long
time, or Dossiblv it was the last feather
added to the previous burden that pros
trated her. It seems she built great
hones of a favorable result from it,
whv L cannot sav. as I told her before
leavine that I regarded it as only a pos
sible chance; but on my return after
telling her the result, she manifested
more disappointment than 1 had no
ticed in a long time, and soon took to
her bed with nervous prostration. I
mav sav here that the newspaper re
port of mv obiect in going to North
Carolina is not correct. I did not go
to see a child there, but to investigate
a matter remotely connected in the
place to which I went. The matter is
still undergoing investigation, and I
cannot tell what will be the hnal re
Truly the ways of Frovidence are
mysterious and past finding out, yet I
cio not aespair out mat x wm get some
light bv which the mystery will lie
made plain. To this end 1 zealously
look into every circumstance that I
hear of that is either directly or re
motely connected with the child's con
cealment, believing that wniie it is a
privilege to pray for light and aid, yet
it is a duty to use every means at my
disposal to find out the truth concern
ing this dark subject. It does seem to
me that the parties who still persist in
keeping from us the facts of the case are
even more nearness tnan tne aoauc-
Mrs. Boss and myself would both be
only too glad to know that our dear
Charlie is safe in heaven than to be
tortured by the dread that he remains
in charge of people who may lead him
into a life of misery or of crime. While
we have suffered beyond what any
mortal, cail understand, yet we nave
the comfort to know that many a little
fellow has been rescued from want and
misery through the search for our
Cnarlie, and we believe the public have
reaped largely the benefit or the sacri
fice we made, fox had I compounded
the crime 1 feel certain, we would nave
had our son long since; but declining
to do so, I have suffered and the public
have been benefitted, fori do not think
a child will be taken soon for a ran
som. I have written you a long letter,
much' more than I expected, but you
will please excuse ;me; when I get on
this subject I don't Jcnow when or
where to stop. ' v
With many thanks for your interest,
and. with the. hope that your prayers
added to those of so many others may
avail with the God whom we all wor
