"We shall iniss 3-011 , gentle Abbie ,
Miss you f'-om the place 3-011 always fill ;
Miss . -ou in the little home
By the lake upon the hill.
We shall long for your dear presence ,
But I fear we'll long in vain ,
For will you ne'er return dear heart
To your home upon the plain ?
O , mcthinks I see you darling
On a dark and starless night ,
With a crown upon your forehead
And your dress of - nowwhite -
Looking down upon your loved ones ,
Husband and little children , four ,
Broken hearts and tear-stained faces.
Not as happy as before.
And I hear the children wailing ;
See the face of little Lee ,
With his baby hands uplifted.
Sobbing , "Mother , Gentle Mother , come to
See again your dying bedside.
As cold death bedimmelour sight ;
Hear you murmur , "O. I'm freezing , "
And the stars were shining bright.
Near the old home at Manhattan ,
Where you were made a happy bride ,
Now you are sleeping , gentle Abbic ,
By 3'our aged father's side.
But your spirit is bounding onward.
And 3'ou're safe within the fold.
Where Hewers biOjui and never wither ,
And God is life and light , we're told.
At the gates we'll llnd you waiting.
Beaming with love in God's holy light ;
Where there will be no more sorrow ,
Or pale hands on the lillies white.

From Eldorado ( Ark. ) Times. Dec. 31.
In all the experiences through
out my lifo , never have I heard
of a crime committed so dirty , so
low down , so cold blooded , as the
one. committed last Wednesday
night in the alley , near Wesson
avenue , whereby Mr. C. W. Mas-
singale of Valentine. Neb. , was
shot dead and robbed of his monT -
n . \T .
Quite a few of 11 = 3 knew Mr.
Massingaie and had found him to
be a perfect gentleman. As a
ci-iizen , no one feels' worse hurt
over this tragedy than I. For
Mr. Massingale's family and
friends at his home , they have my
sympathy and I sincerely trust
the outside world will not hold El
Dorado responsible for this out
rageous crime , but that we were
unfortunate to have such a char
acter in our midst without our
As a law abiding citizen I urge
that every effort possible be ex
erted by our officers and citizens
to run down the right man , IF IT
KK POSSIBLE , and when this party
is proven guilty , may our courts
administer the law to its full limit.
The state of Arkansas does not
record a law that would amply
punish the disreputable , dirty
scoundrel that took the life of a
good man and a welcome visitor ,
as was Mr. Massingaie. And for
the comfort of Mr. Massingale's
loved ones and friends , tlvxt the
state of Arkansas cannot bring
bick Mr. Massingale's life , but it
can bring the man to justice that
took his life a-ray. CITIZEN.
