Raymond Rockwell, son of Mr.

was xvilli his sister visiting at Xc

Raymond xxas a remarkably bright
child ami was a faithful attendant
at Sunday school, from which he
will be greatly missed. The fam
ily has be heartfelt sympathy id'
all in their hcivnvcmcnt. To our
short .sighted w isdom I be deal I) of
such a child seems a sad mistake,
but xve remember wilh some com
fort the following which Long
fellow said :
The Lord hath n I of these
How ers gay,
The reaper said and smiled.
Dear tokens of the earth are they
Where he was once a child.
So the father gave in tears ami
The llower he most did love,
Hut he knew that he should tiud
him once uuain
In I he I'.ehls of light ami love.
Oh not in bitterness, not in wrath.
Did the reiier come (hat day,
'Twas an angel visited the green
And look I be llower axvav.
Dr. Win. Sadler, author u! "The
Cause and Cure of Colds," says
that common colds should be
taken seriously, especially when
they "hang' on." Foley's Honey
and Tar Compound is a reliable
household medicine for coughs
and colds, equally eU'ectivc for
children and for grown persons.
Take it when you feel a cold com
ing' on. It will avert danger of
serious results and cure quickly.
