hopes shattered ; dreams without fulfillment. But withal it has
been a pretty good old year , has 1904.
A year has gone-a mere second in God's ; endless time ; lIa ,
bubble on a shoreless sea. " Still in its brief period it has per-
formed , those duties which were appointed it in the morning of
t.ime , It I has contributed the mite reserved for it through all the " . : \
