was noted in last week's Transcript,
died on Friday of last week and was
buried on Saturday. On Christinas day

a little scrap, in which Bray was hit a
couple of light licks in the face and on

were of the opinion that the brain fever
was caused by these blows, but after

A well known physician says that
when a man is afraid of dying, it is a
sign lie is not verv sick. It is easy to
die, the physician says, and it does not
hurt. Nor is it a fearful thing fir the
man or woman doing it. On the con-
trary, it is the most natural of all
things except birth. Of these two epi-
sodes, birtli and death, birth lias all
i the pain, as those who are born declare
| by weeping. Those who die never
j weep. So the Persian proverb hath it:
i "You wept wben you came into I he
i world, while those about you laughed;
so live that when jou die you smile and
I those about you weep."
