Emma E. Wood

Died, 29th ult., at the residence of Joseph Wood, her father, three miles east of Hebron, Emma E. Wood, aged 23 years, 3 months, 23 days. Emma with her sister younger, kept house for their father since their mother's death two or three years ago. The community sympathize with the bereaved family.


Dearest Emma thou hast left us!
Here thy loss we deeply feel;
But 'tis God that has bereft --
He can all our sorrows heal.

Yet again we hope to meet thee,
Where the day of life is fled,
Then in heaven with joy to greet thee,
Where no fare-well tear is shed.

From our circle, dearest sister,
Early hast thou passed away;
But the angels say, another
Joins our holy throngs to-day!

No more that voice, we loved to hear,
Shall fill her parents' list'ning ear!
No more its tones shall join to swell
The songs that of a savior tell!

How often has the bell been tolled?
The funeral cortege moved along?
'Twas for the young as well as old,
The healthy and the strong.

A few short hours will soon be pass'd,
When we shall reach the happy shore,
Where death-divided friends at last
Shall meet to part no more.

E. B. L.
