WOMAN'S 24 17, they arrived Brother Lay ton, his wife, Elizabeth, and his son Charles. They had to keep him under the influence of morphine all the way, and then it seemed that he would not hold out until they arrived. But he did, and he stepped off the train, walked to the carriage and from the carriage to the house. But he never went outside of the house afterwards. When he got into the house he laid himself down on the bed, closed his eyes and said, "Thank God I have got home !" The next day we sent for Dr. Joseph Richards, and he came and staid all night. On examination Dr. Richards said he felt sure Brother Layton had stones in his bladder, and wished him to go to the hospital where he could have an operation performed. His reply was that he would never go to the hospital, nor have an operation performed. He continued to get and his worse, suffering was hard to bear. On the morning of the last of June he was very bad and when the doctor came he told him that nothing but an operation could save his life, and that if it were not performed he could not last more than a few So he with his family consented. hours. Dr. Richards had brought Dr. Wilcox with him that morning, and as soon as the sufferer consented the two doctors began the task at once. They took out fifteen stones, the largest weighing four ounces and the others varying in size. He stood the and came out from the operation very well, chloroform feeling as well as could be expected. The wound healed up nicely and for some time things looked as if he would still live a time. But his pain had worn him out and all that a loving family and friends could do did not raise him up. The last week he seemed to feel better, but a cough set in and he did not have strength to withstand it. On the 6th of August mortification set in. Everything was done that could be from the beginning, both in administration and medical aid, but to no avail, he gradually sank until August 7, at 10:30 p. m., when he passed peacefully away, surrounded by his wives and children, grandchildren and a multitude of friends. Amid all the excitement and all the hurry the words of the servant oi the Lord were not lost sight of. I remembered what Brother Richards had said and I saw the fulfillment of it in my own heart. For many times did he with tears in his eyes ask me to forgive him for all the past, and would say that nothing should stand in the way of my being made happy if he could but live a few years longer. I did forgive him from the bottom of my heart. fContinued.) THE THIRTY-THIR- ANNUAL MEETING.
