The author therefore stands. has quite alone in this respect, for Brother Lyon Dassed away, though his poems live after him, and many of them are gems of Scottish poetry as well as genuinely "Alormon." Bishop Whitney's from poetical writings stand out clear and distinct all other poems; he is unlilce in style and tone any other poet in the Churth; Originality marks his work and his themes; he is not particularly and dreamy and emotional, but more majestic lofty than most young writers. We ardently hope that the young Bishop will continue writing and that he may reach the subllmest heights obtainable ,n poetry and song. .ngraving-B.Ulmp..0J-jiiwy,- finely-execu- ,1 ted, " trr" ' . .

What an indescribable sadness came over us unupon hearing of this sad event! How tears bidden flowed from our eyes, and would not be checked! We could not at first realize the painful truth. But alas! too true. Nettie has left us. Her pure, noble spirit has taken its flight. Words Laaaot express. ,b dear one from our number. We realize that in parting with Nettie we have lost one of the brightest and most faithful workers in the association. From her childhood Nettie has been an interested and a useful member, always performing the labors assigned to her willingly and well. . We shall miss her bright face from our midst. As the roll is called we shall no more hear the gentle voice answer with a beautiful sentiment. No more can we listen to the bright ideas with which she was wont to respond to the programme. By her sweet, amiable disposition, Nette gained our lasting love and affection; her bright intellect won our earnest admiration; while her virtue, integrity and true womanly dignity incites our emulation.
