“His warfare is o’er, his battle fought,
His fresh young life could not be saved;
He slumbers now in a soldier’s grave;
The trial was great, the loss heavy to bear,
The angels, dear son, will tend you with care.”
Inserted by his sorrowing parents.


Mrs. HOWE and family desire to return their sincere thanks to the many kind friends who sympathised with them in their recent sad bereavement; also to the many who wrote letters of sympathy. Hoping this will be accepted by all. – Coagh, Co. Tyrone
