Little Bertie, as we called her.Vas two years old, and wag a general favorite with all who knew her. She was always so cheerful and pleasant; ever ready for a play, a dear lover of singing, and nearly the last she spoke was to ask her mother to sing to her. During the last days of her illness she was. very •calm, and.as'we looked al her we were made to think of that sweet rest that she was about to enter, and knowing that her stay with us could be but brief we could not murmur, that death con]cs so soon, although it was so hard to say good bye U> ouo so dear. To her memory we submit the following: Thn llltli! one hait jtonu to rent, .Sale foldeil to her .Siivlor'x breaiit, Kroiii nil th<! ciirin of earth net free, NoiiioretoHay, "Jlaino, rockino."
