         "Gone, but not forgotten."
   Do not ask us if we miss him,
      There is such a vacant place;
   Can we e'er forget his footsteps,
      And his dear familiar face?
   His pleasant face and kindly ways
      Are pleasing to recall;
   He had a kindly word for each,
      And died beloved by all.

In Memoriam

MONTGOMERY -- In loving remembrance of John Montgomery, 48 Morris Street, Burtley, Co. Durham, England, who died on 27th February, 1913, aged 4 days, and was interred in Clare Churchyard.
   A bud the Gardener gave us,
      A fair and lovely child;
   He gave it to our keeping,
      So pure and undeflied.
   But just as it had opened,
      Until the dawn of day;
   Down came the heavenly gardener
      And took the flower away.
   But not in wrath He took it,
      The smile was on its face;
   And tenderly and softly
      He bore it from its place.
Inserted by his sorrowing father and mother, JOHN and MINA MONTGOMERY.

ROBINSON -- In loving memory of my dear husband, William Robinson, who departed this life the 25th day of February, 1913, and was interred in Desertcreat Churchyard.
   Gone, but not forgotten,
      Never shall his memory fade;
   Sweetest thoughts shall ever linger
      Round the grave where he is laid.
   I little thought when leaving home,
      That he no more would return;
   That he soon in death would sleep,
      And leave me here to mourn.
   Had I but seen his dying look,
      Or watched his dying bed,
   My heart, I think, would not have felt
      The bitter tears I shed. Inserted by his sorrowing wife, MARGARET ROBINSON.


Mrs. M'Connell and family return their sincere thanks to all who sympathised with them in their recent sad bereavement. Drumshambo, Cookstown.
