so-sweetly to the mourning husband and

their midst. To-the sick woman, she was in

the sicktroom. Under her loving ministra-
Boas, it aasumed.a.beauty that was almost
divine. None knew whether it might be the
.gate to Paradise 'or. to n brighter life on'
earth, but all-felt that whether the Path of
the pale one was heavenward or hero, it was
flower crowned. '• •

And when the crisis came, when Mrs. Sem.

ing a tnirror. to her lips the, fluttering life,
could be seen at all, when husband, brother,
children and friends had stolen softly away,
