Death of Helen Fry,
A poet has well said:
"The fairest rose that bids the morn
A welcome, with Its dewey breath;
Will soonest from Us stem be tom
And breathe Its fragrance out In death.
Youth's fairest forms and sweetest
Xo soonest yield to death's embrace;
He seeks to gather In his arms,
what hardest may be to replace."
If we find ourselves marvelling and
wondering why a remarkably strong, vig
orous child of 12 years-like Helen Fry
should be called hence so suddenly, we
get, the old answer, "He doeth all tilings
well," , and we do well to accept the old
answer, fox there 1 no other. And yet
we mourn, .and It may .tx cry out in our.
Brief, "Ol for the touch of a vanished
hand, nnd rtho sound ot a voice that la.
still." All who knew her are mourners.
Her short life was a singularly happy one
absolutely -devoid ot sorrow with prob
ably never a wish ungratlfled. All who
knew her loved her; and It Is because
It was my prlvllego to be among the-
friends who knew her best, and loved
her most that I place this little sprig of
Myrtle on the grave of Helen Fry.
