brother's family, and the oommunity

That in tbe death of our brother,
James Mosgrove, bis bereaved widow
and family have sustained tbe irrepar
able loss of a most loving, faithful and
devoted husband and father; and the

faithful and true; whose every motive
and aotion was influenced by tbe

durjlioity as it is possible for human
nature to be. And, while we wonder
at the inscrutable ways of the Great
Being who controls and direots our
destinies, and confess our inability to
understand His ways, or eitber of the
twin mysteries of life and death, we

sympathy to those whom it has pleased
