so pure, so Right, so sweetly unselfish
and thoughtful of others, that she was
beloved by allwhe knew her, adored by
eyery ftiembar of her family, and idol
ised by the young husband whose . life
[?he Blasted (?' throe short years.
?VO, who can forget the sweet light of |
ker smile,
Over lipa moved with music and feeling j
the while, ? J
And the chanii.ef her features
While over the whole ;

In every relation of life her sweet

ness blessed those wjth whom
?he came in contact. Along her path
sprang the sweet and modest blossoms
of unaelish love; whose perfume will
linger long with many whose memory
other bright smile and gentle courte

us bettef for its sweetness.
"For all her quiet life flowed on
As meadow steamlets flow
Where fresher green reveals alone?
The noieelesi way they go.

Of *11 thing* iweet and fair
Refrenhed her unaware.
