IN MEMORIAM. EDDIE WILLIAMS, WHO DIED FROM PAINFUL INJURIES, DECEMBER 7TH, 1899, AGED 24 YEARS. To those who yearn to die, Death seems to tuny loug, Whereas, without a cry He smiteth down the strong And he, in whom is life the most, Doth often fall a prey the first. Death lutketh in the air, Alrd ev,rya h, re is death He singh th out toe fair And witlvreth with his breath, The choice st flowers the human raoe Can e'er produce this earth to gr..ce. The mighty and the weik, Th sinful anj the wise C<minually seek (Wiule nine so swiftly flies), A May to bt -y the avengii g bl,) w lhat ia) eth each for ev, r low. We, children of the night. We grope, we fear, we chide, We fail ,0 see tii ,t right Mu,t be, wliate'er be, ide Nor pe, r beyond the cloudy gloom That wreathes around the dreary tomb. He suffered deady throes And anguish quite unknown, Till death his eyes did close, And he from nencc was borne His youthful b. dy, lent and torn, Remained to tell of bat was gone. Thy fate was suddsn, friend, And swift the summons came, We pray that onr end May neVrr be the same } In life thou si,ng'st with ev. ry breath, But now thy song is hushed in death." Our ready lips are dun.b, Our hearts as heavy lead, Wt're si beied mid life's hum, For Eddie lieth dead He calls act"sa the tickkl's sea c. Biotners prtpare to follow me I" TOM JOHN.
