imprint on terra flrma. After getting

Uotchkiss, Colo, June 18, 1903.
I know we have many friends who read
the PRiss-JouitNL, who will wish to
ksow something of the last days which
Mr. Rice serit on earth, und us I can not
write to each one of you personally, I
will take this way to tell you.
He was taken sick ttie 14th of Mav, but
after the Hist day or two, seemed to be
slowly gaining and we thought would
soon le about again. He did get well
enough to walk about and evengooui,
doors a little and then seemed to come .o
a stand still. A few days only before he
died did we know that be was in any im
mediate danger, though I think he felt
pretty sure of it before I did. Ou Thurs
day the doctor conllrmed our fears and
Monday morning June 8th he left us. His
one thought seemed to be to think of
every thing that would make it easier
forme, and that God would give him
strength to bear while he should stay
here, his preparation for the future had
been mude long ago and did not cause
him an anxious thought. Ho did not
sulTer in those last days except from
shortness of breath und was perfectly
conscious all the time, spoke to us about
ao hour before he died, but when he
went he passed away io his sleep, with
out a struggle. I had been able to take
cure of I ii in all the time until the last
nighl, when Fred Bendix was with us.
Neighbors had been kind to offer help
but he wanted me to care for him if I
could and 1 am so glad I could. On Sun
day as well as for three days before he
talked to rue on the coming change und
said "It wont be long now."
I had felt that we were utmost among
strangers but can never feel so again,
every one was so kind, neighbors and
Christian brothers and sisters from the
church and Sunday School came (o me
and I had eyery help possible. On Tues
day Mr. Rice's sister Mrs. Case and her
husband of Omaha came and Wednesday
we laid the dear body away to rest until
the resurrccten. There was a beautiful
service in the Methodist church in Hotel)
kiss, and I wns surprised to find how
many hod learned to know him here in
these few slwrt months. The music
especially was very sweet and comfort
ing. Two ' musical evangelists were
holding services in Uotchkiss and they
with others sang of "the better country"
and mode us feel that it was indeed very
near, the hymn that was sung was one
that Mr. Rice had lutely found in owr S.
S. books and had been singing in the last
few weeks. This is it; t,
"I know my heavenly Father knows
The storms that would my way oppose
But he can drive the clouds away
And turn my darkness into day
