DIED. Of consumption, in Addison township, Gallia county, Ohio, Feb. 4th, 1874, Rosalie, eldest daughter of Wm. and Eliza Kincaid, aged fourteen years and nine months. As we have often said, "death loves a shining mark." Rosalie was the pet of the family. She was loved by all who knew her. On her the affections of a kind family were lavished, and their love was worthly bestowed. She was truly a lovely daughter. She was confined to her bed twelve days, when death relieved her of her sufferings. It was hard to give her up but the will of God is supreme. And as I sit here alone in the darkness, save the gleams that the fire flings over walls, where I think every shadow may fall from Rosa's white wings--
A light is from our household gone, A voice we loved is still, A place is vacant at out hearth Which never can be filled. The Savior had a need for her, Unknown to us below, And beckoned her to cross death's flood, Prepared her well to go. We'll meet her in a brighter world, Than this , beyond the skies, In purer, holier bonds of love, Than the strongest earthly ties. Then let our sorrows cease to flow, God has recalled his own; But let our hearts in every woe, Still say, Thy will be done. L. M. J.
