DEDICATED MRS. MARY C. WARE
Why should our tears in sorrow flow,
When God recalls his own;
And bids them leave a world of woe,
For an immortal crown!

Her toils are past, her work is done,
And she is fully blest;
She fought the fight, the victory won,
And entered into rest.

Then let our sorrows cease to flow,
God has recalled his own;
But let our hearts in every woe,
Still say--"Thy will be done!"
                                                                    A.E.R.

Bowen
On saturday morning, 7th inst., at the residence of his brother-in-law, near Rossville, Baltimore County, John T. Bowen, aged, 50 years.

Grishard
Ka,es Grosjard. aged 67 years, died 28th August, at his residence, after a serious and painful illness.  In the launguage of Tupper:
"Keep silence, daughter of frivolty,
For death is in that chamber:--
He hath auatomised soul and body."
You, he hath invaded the domestic circle and taken away the old man whose hoary locks had for some time past been pointing as an indes towards the tomb.
The young may die--the old must:  so it was with the venerable old man who is the subject of our remarks.
Time, in his rapid rolling car, has borne him away, ere he reached three score years and ten, "to that bourge from which no traveler returns."
After passing the meridian of life he was struck down by organic disease of the nervous system, from which he never recovered ere his death, not-withstanding the best medical aid had been brought to his bed-side.
After a well spent life, beloved by friendsfar and near, he was called to answer the great summon of the Omnipotence, --whose power is irresistible when the patient falls a victim to that malady whose atmosphere is surrounded by death.
Medical skill had been taxed to the uttermost bounds of science to save him from the grave; but with all the mighty potentates who had worshipped at the shrine of Esculapius, that ministered to his disease, none were able to do more than palliate his sufferings.  The Great Physician on High overrulled their skill, and took him from the stage of notion in this life "to fairer worlds on high."

Jesus, while our hearts are bleeding
O'er the spoils that death has won,

Mercy still is on the throne;
With thy smiles of love returning,
Help us to say--Thy will be done.
