Mr. E. M. Paige died of pneumonia after a brief illness of seven days, it being only 51 days since his wife preceded him, dying with the same fatal disease.

          While snow is yet deep in the churchyard, 
            We have laid him away to his rest, 
          With the tired hands folded so softly, 
            So calm on the cold pulseless breast.

          Now the farmhouse it seems OH! So lonely, 
            Since we miss the kind face everywhere.
          The familiar old rooms look deserted, 
            And empty the old rocking chair.

          But while we all miss him so sadly, 
            He rests, and so blessed up in heaven;
          His sorrows have turned to rejoicing, 
            And sunshine eternal is given.

          There he with our Mother awaits us, 
            Awaits on that beautiful shore, 
         Where the Father has made us a homestead, 
            Where parting and death are no more.

A CARD --- We desire to express our sincere thanks to all our friends and neighbors who extended to us their aid and sympathy in the hours of our deep affliction.

The Family of E .M. Paige
