Near Monmouth, Jan. 16, 1883. By

Mary S. Small died of scarlet fever,
Jan. 5 1883, at 11 o'clock, p . M., aged 9
years, 2 months and 21 days.
Margaret A Small died Jan. 8, 1883.
The beloved daughters of Wm. and Ann
Small, Cottage Grove, Ogn. Margaret
and Mary Small were the youngest of
seven children, leaving one sister, four
brothers and many friends to mourn thia
loss. I hope you will all pray for Mr.
and Mrs. Small who feels so deeply
their sad bereavement.
Dearest children thou hast left us
We your dr sth do deeply mourn
Your body has turned to dust
And we are left alone.
Oh our darlings thon art dr eping
In the cold and silent tomb
Sad and lonely are we weeping
For our hearts are clothed in gloom.
Dearest children thou art praising
The Eternal King above
Angela their sweet songs are raising
To him a ho is full of love.
Wheu our days on earth are ended
And from affections we are free
We hope to meet on that bright shoro
And join to praise with thee.
■But all their toils and griefs are o’er
And they are freed from pain
Their face on earth we’ll see no more
But hope we'll meet again.
Then why should we lament or weep,
If God has thought it best
To take their souls frem earth away
To take their eternal rest.
