two sous , and one daughter , for interment in
the Evergreen cemetery near his old home in
the ' Illinois settlement. Four of his sous being
present were pall bearers , presented a beauti

was performed by those nearest and dearest.
We could but shed tears of sympathy as we

The deceased leaves his companion and eight

worn for years has been properly convoyed to

One by one our loved ones leave us ,
As the hour of lite giows lute ;
One by one their partings grieve us ,
They are parsing through Hie gate.
One by one no all are going.
Down tho naihway steep and straight ;
Ah the joy there is in knowing.
We shall meet beyond the gate.

Grim death ! thou must thy progress stay.

As we behold the last impioriug gaze on us
We then must saytis well. " for God hath

A Railroad Train in a Forest Fire.
Tlie train , lessening its sueed. was soon oblig

red embers or solid cords of roaring wood the
wood which had been cut and piled for com
merce. The pine-branches on the flat car ig
nited , driving the brass band into an inclosed
carriage for shelter. Men with buckets drop

water to throw on the train , creeping on the
platforms again v/ilh scorched clothes and
liauds and faces blistered. a

Incredible sights showed through that night
mare of tire. Mots inclosed stumps spurted
iame many times their own height. Young
erns , , scarce unrolled , sprang green and rresh
from one side of a log , while tho other side
luivered in living coals.
Tho train stopped. It could creep in retreat
10 farther , for its track was burned , the rails
varped into fantastic curves. Blickened and
jlistered paint ran down the car sides.
The doors and windows had all been closed

mssenger in the carriage gasped for breath.
