In Memoriam.

Many a heart was made sad on last Saturday night by the untimely flight of the beautiful spirit of young Julian Taff.

The impartiality of death was plainly shown by his taking away one so bright, so young, so promising as our young friend.

The morning of young manhood was just dawning upon him. Indeed the dews of happy childhood had scarcely ceased to sparkle.

Why should he have been taken from us? With his death came many sad disappointments, many a fond hope blasted.

His mother having died about ten years ago, leaving him and his two sisters, he had always been a comfort to his father. He was always so obedient and thoughtful of his father and sisters.

Though not a member of any church, his noble character plainly spoke the presence of Christ. Only a few hours before his death, he was informed that he could not live very long and he calmly said he was not afraid to go. As he told of his happy conversion., the light of Heaven seemed to glow on the pallid face, and his voice which had grown weak during his illness became so loud and clear as to be distinctly heard.

He possessed the most forgiving of spirits. He was ever ready to forgive any wrong done him and to return good for evil. It seemed that he continually kept in mind the “golden rule,” for he always did to others as he would have them do unto him.

How well he was loved by his companions was proven by the reverence paid the remains.

His parent and dear little sisters have the sincerest sympathy of this entire community. May they bow in humble submission to the will of Him who doeth all things well.
